"Rush Limbaugh said Monday that President Obama has "switched from Messiah to demon."
The radio host said the president looked "demonic" in photos that were taken over the weekend and that appeared on the Drudge Report Monday.
"These pictures, they look demonic," Limbaugh said of the Obama photos. "And I don't say this lightly. There are a couple pictures, and the eyes, I'm not saying anything here, but just look. It is strange that these pictures would be released....It's very, very, very strange. An American president has never had facial expressions like this. At least we've never seen photos of an American president with facial expressions like this."
I mean, I feel like I'm watching The Omen: 666 and all that," he would say later. "This is weird, weird, weird stuff."
First of all, note that Limbaugh doesn't have the balls to own what he said in less than one sentence. First he says "...I don't say this lightly."
Then the coward says in the very next sentence: "I'm not saying anything here."
Then he references the Omen after implying that our first bi-racial American president looks like the devil. IOW, he's EVIL, to be dehumanized, hated, and rejected--in any way possible. Afterall, shouldn't good Christians get rid of the demonic in any way possible?
This is Limbaugh's message to his followers.
This is the titular leader of the GOP, and this is what he hammers into the empty skulls of his listeners.
Limbaugh has looked at the facial expressions of Mr. Obama giving speeches and decided they are demonic.
This is where we are as a country, and these are the sort of racist demagogues who get to influence the weak-minded and the bigots.
I have oftern wondered how long it would take before the Limbaughs of the GOP finally used the language of the Nazis: Remember it was the Nazis who demonized the Jews through their relentless propaganda.
How is what Limbaugh is saying any different? Someone--anyone--answer that question.
