Rush Limbaugh Decides To Do the Full Coughlin
(Those of you who don't know who Father Charles Coughlin was, click here
.) Rush appears to have just committed professional suicide: he decided to be blatantly antisemitic today
"There are a lot of people, when you say banker, people think Jewish. People who have prejudice, people who have -- what's the best way to say -- a little prejudice about them. To some people, bankers -- code word for Jewish -- and guess who Obama's assaulting? He's assaulting bankers. He's assaulting money people. And a lot of those people on Wall Street are Jewish. So I wonder if there's starting to be some buyer's remorse there."Buyer's remorse?
Why, exactly, Rush, did you bring up their being Jewish or not, at all? Of course you're completely
unaware of this particular type of historical paranoia against Jews, and what the phrase "Jewish bankers" connotes. My ass. He's deliberately reaching back to a very old and very well-known trope of antisemitism, in such a clumsy way too.
This isn't even code. This is an attempt to imply--and I'm being kind--a claim that Obama was raised to the presidency by a conspiracy of Jewish bankers. Otherwise why say "buyer's remorse" specifically in connection to "Jewish bankers?" It'd be one thing had he only said "bankers," but he went a completely unnecessary and stupid step further.
Rush is forgetting that people who aren't his listeners can also find out what he says. Look at the statement. It's designed to confuse the issue and obscure the statement that you can really see at the end. A "lot of people," Rush? Like you? You disgusting, gelatinous, mushbrained golf-shirt-staining sweaty hateful drug addict pile of dog shit?
I already thought he was a piece of fascist scum. Now we know he's not just that: he's NAZI scum. And the time has come to drive him from the airwaves. He is a purveyor of hate speech, pure and simple.
Unless the GOP doesn't mind
taking their marching orders from a Nazi. And being perceived as agreeing with him. I wonder what Cantor and Lieberman will have to say about this?
