This was Matt Drudge’s headline: “LIMBAUGH: ‘Obama has become dangerous’…” If a lot more Republicans and conservatives talked like this — especially the elected ones — that would be a sign that maybe they’re finally willing to fight in the information war. Here’s Rush:
By the way, just so you know, a half hour before the program started I didn’t know I was gonna be doing any of this that I’ve done since the program began. But events dictate what happens here. A bunch of lies and a bunch of distortions out there. This historical perspective on America I thought was quite necessary also to inform you that there is a religious test. There are many religious tests in refugee law in this country.
There’s nothing new going on here. There’s no new bigotry or racism or anti this or anti that. There’s nothing unprecedented happening here, other than Obama. Obama is what’s unprecedented. The Democrat Party is what’s unprecedented. Transforming the country, doing damage to the country, that is what everybody’s concern ought to be, not those trying to protect it. Here is Obama last night in Manila at a joint press conference with Benigno Aquino. During the Q&A a reporter said, “Would you care to comment at all on some of the discussion back at home about allowing Syrian refugees into the US? There have been some lawmakers talk about closing our borders to them.”
OBAMA: Apparently they’re scared of widows and orphans coming in to the United States of America as part of our tradition of compassion. At first they were worried about the press being too tough on ’em during debates. Now they’re worried about three-year-old orphans. That doesn’t sound very tough to me. They’ve been playing on fear in order to try to score political points or to advance their campaigns. And it’s irresponsible. And it’s contrary to who we are. And it needs to stop, because the world is watching.
RUSH: It’s not contrary to who we are. What is this three-year-old orphan stuff? Folks, you know, this is childish. This is a petulant, childish man-child who’s having trouble getting his way without opposition. Opposition offends him. How dare anybody oppose him. There are real concerns and we see them on television every day. We’re living daily fear. The media. If there is no terror attack during the day, the media’s got everybody in crisis mode on something else. Every day, everybody keyed up, there’s a crisis of something happening that is threatening our health, our lives, our existence some way. Every day in the news. And here comes a real-life terror event, which is predictable, there will be more, and Obama impugns those who react to them.
