Rush Limbaugh cited a DU thread today

BTW- I can't find this thread. I knew he was lying about it...anyway here you go - this is the type of thing people believe from their car radio everyday:





And somebody went to Democrat Underground, somebody got the idea to go there and just troll and look around, and one of the first posts in Democrat Underground last night was this: "What happened that my Social Security withholding's in my paycheck just went up? My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don't feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?"

..

And as part of the thread, there are people trying to explain to them what happened, and some of them understand it, and some of them don't, but they're all livid.

..

They're fit to be tied. And then they resort, it's probably Bush's fault, they think. They think that Bush has come back from four years of a presidency that's expired to bite them. And they're livid over it. It's a classic illustration. You talk about low-information voters. You talk about people have no clue. You talk about people that support things they have no idea what they're doing in terms of harming themselves by virtue of what they support. The Democrat Underground: what happened that my Social Security withholding and my paycheck just went up? This guy had no idea. And it's a long thread. I don't know how long it is now.

..

Now, I mentioned moments ago when I was telling you the outrage on Democrat Underground from people whose paychecks were smaller because their Social Security tax went back to normal. They didn't know it was coming and they were livid and they're blaming Bush. So I got some e-mail asking: "What do you mean, blaming Bush?" It's a good question. I should have 'splained it. Here is the thinking.

..

On Democrat Underground, they blamed Bush for causing the economic crash by cutting taxes. In other words, the people at Democrat Underground believe the recession happened because of tax cuts. Now, what...?


The Republican brand (if you will), if it's known for anything, it's tax cuts, which means a growing economy. Tax cuts mean you keep more of what you earn. It means that there are more jobs created. It means you broaden the base, you increase jobs, and therefore you increase the number of taxpayers. The more people there are paying taxes, the more revenue there is to Washington. But you don't have to raise individual taxes to increase revenue to Washington.

You can get more revenue by simply creating jobs, and you do that by lowering taxes. And that's what the Republican Party has been known for. And Obama wanted to strip them of that. Furthermore, he wanted that identification, and he's got it! Obama's the big tax-cutter now. That's what people think. But the Republican tax cuts caused the problems. This has been Obama's point for four years.

the exact wording.

So limbaugh thought he had a great find on DU.. not everyone was "livid". One post said.. "This post attracting a lot of freeper drive bys" Another replied: "BUCK UP".. You'll get it all back plus interest when you start collecting Social Security.

And by the way, that money coming out of your check proves that Social Security is not a "free ride" or welfare of any kind."

You see, on yesterdays Home page DU showed.....
"So I opened my paycheck today---well---actually I get direct deposit...."
http://www.democraticunderground.com/10022132436
We read the OP, got the drift, commented, RECed, possibly got a chuckle out of it.
To the "GOP co." propaganda employs such as limpballs and the foxes, that OP was pure GOLD!
Sure they read it they knew what it was about but they knew something else.
If they blathered about it their sheep would skoot over to DU, read the first line ONLY then pick up the chant with screams of na na naaa na na.
Soon right wing blogs would pick up the mantra and the intertubes would fill with the chant, silly liberals na na naaa na na.
Grade school stuff.
We here at DU would spend the afternoon "swatting trolls".
No bigey, by tomorrow it will be back to Obama's anti American muslin sheets. Or something.

Teapublicans, the threat from within.

he has them in such a bubble they actually believe that everything was just fine until 1/20/2009 (ominous music). No debt. No financial crisis. No bailouts. Nothing - it was all flowers and candy. This has been the main goal of the RW radio and Fox News since the Bush disaster - a smokescreen to blur the timelines and then repeat repeat repeat.

Those sad souls really believe that nonsense...and BELIEF is key to them just like Rush trying to explain the conservative tax cut theories that have never worked.

The reason I think this is the man's ego is bigger then his male junk. People like him love to see their name mentioned, makes him feel big.

So rush if you are reading this go do a dick (of the cheney persuasion) and boner oops boenher and go $uck your self. Oh also I hear there is a sale on oxy and viagra you better go stock up unless you get caught up in that operation sunflower - the US would only be so lucky right?

But maybe I just missed that thread, which would have been about how to score illegal drugs.

37. The usual Limbaugh brand of sophistry most Republicans take as truth.

Life is much easier when you lean back and enjoy your opinions being validated rather than disseminating facts and thinking critically.

Call me a slut if you want....
But at least I'm not a whore who would marry a disgusting man for his money.

44. This is probably where the one or two trolls today came from.

 

When someone such as Rush derisively mentions a website or business by name, there "might be" an undertone of stochastic terrorism:

Daily Kos: Stochastic Terrorism: Triggering the shooters.
www.dailykos.com/story/2011/01/10/934890/​-Stochastic-Terrorism

Stochastic terrorism is the use of mass communications to stir up random lone wolves to carry out violent or terrorist acts

Or in this case, merely trolls happy to glub glub at the most recently mentioned offender.

But we've seen a huge influx of trolls lately. Most very obvious and quickly dispatched by MIRT. But also sockpuppet sleepers and moles who raise suspicions, but who are careful not to cross the line. C'est la vie. What else is new at DU, lol?

52. it totally makes sense

the GOP demands the tax increase and then blames Obama for them. Including sending trolls to DU to play games.

they will do try to do the same with Social Security. They are demanding cuts. If we give in to the cuts, then I will bet anyone a trillion dollars that there will be trolls here blaming Obama for cutting Social Security, and Rush will catapult it on his show.

In addition, the GOP will run ads for the 2014 election, blaming Obama for the cuts they are now demanding. The ads are probably already produced.

58. I remember the thread and replied to the OP.

The OP was self absorbed, as are some on DU. I was one of those that pointed out why the tax went up. But I saw no one that was explaining what had happened complaining about the increase. Many of the people were explaining why it needed to go up. Limbaugh outright lied about people blaming Bush for the payroll, no one did that. It doesn't surprise me that Limbaugh or one of his staff would lie about what was written on DU, that is what they do, distort words and the truth.

I knew it, Rush is taking up about 13% of the tombstones

Rush is unwilling to admit he's over here all the time, so he has to have an oblique "somebody got the idea to go there" claim. Very transparent Rush!

You just know he is reading this thread right now. Hi Rush. Why do you hate women? Are you seeing a shrink for that yet?

62. Since the Bush tax cuts removed twice the amount as the Iraq war, thrn who else should be responsibl

Guess that be Bush. Since Bush took over with the budget in the black and when he left along with a repub Congress voting on spending run, then who do you look to
Bush left office with 800,000 jobs being lost every month. Then Bush might be responsible
. And to think he could not even think of failures he might have been responsible for. Not Smart.

If tax cuts created jobs Bush's first term would have made so many people would have been forced to take them."If you want gaskets you have to take two jobs on our loadimg dock. Sorry man, boss sez these jobs gotta go."

No surprise there; he lies frequently. You would think he would at least get the site name right but the insult name is ingrained. I'm sure he doesn't read us himself. He relies on 'staff' for that.
