Limbaugh: Media are "dangerous to the republic".

And...

"We ought to do background checks on these people to see which of them are mentally ill and if they are, deny them access to the public airwaves and the newspapers as so-called news reporters or journalists because they’re dangerous. They are dangerous to the republic."

Who is mentally ill??

6. Spoken like a good nazi..

Very few people or actions really invite comparison to Hitler, but I would argue that Limbaugh would have been at least a Commander of a "Bandenkämpfverbände" SS unit. And very proud of it.

Wartime, Adolf Hitler suggested, "was the best time for the elimination of the incurably ill." Many Germans did not want to be reminded of individuals who did not measure up to their concept of a "master race." The physically and mentally handicapped were viewed as "useless" to society, a threat to Aryan genetic purity, and, ultimately, unworthy of life. At the beginning of World War II, individuals who were mentally retarded, physically handicapped, or mentally ill were targeted for murder in what the Nazis called the "T-4," or "euthanasia," program.

11. A letter to the editor of the Examiner, a daily newspaper in Independence, MO.

"Back in the 1930s, there was a man who began spouting hatred against other people. Folks must have thought “Oh well, it doesn’t affect me, so they didn’t say anything.” Even the folks being maligned didn’t say anything. Maybe they thought thoughts about Free Speech and such so went on their way, living their lives, ignoring the hatred speeches. After awhile, the man had a following and that following grew. Good people continued to ignore it, not imagining that it could ever go anywhere, perhaps thinking it would die out. Well it didn’t, and millions of people were incinerated in ovens."


"Some are speaking out against Limbaugh's hate rhetoric. Others are ignoring it, thinking thoughts of free speech, thinking it can not possibly go anywhere or affect them in any way. Have we as intelligent knowledgeable people learned from what happened in World War 2? Is it our duty to stand up and speak out against hatred speeches like Limbaugh's? ..........................................

It's time to do something about radio hosts using their positions to spread hate........

24. Well, then at the VERY LEAST, the Man who runs the Republican Party in this Country

should be COMPLETELY in favor of re-instating the Fairness Doctrine, so the Liberal Media at least has SOME kind of check on their Power.
Isn't that RIGHT, Rush?

I'm not kidding. We should start using the other sides hatred of us (and their total idiocy) against them. They are dumb enough to shoot themselves in the foot if we give them the gun and tell them that the shoes they are wearing are Liberaly Biased and should be dealt with appropriately. They will pull the trigger, and then brag to the doctor that they did a good thing, and are proud of themselves.
