Rush Limbaugh did a full Bachmann on his show today. Limbaugh said Obama has a second reason for keeping the Guantanamo prison camp open.
Let me tell you something Snerdly, another reason they're keeping Gitmo open. Someday they're going to need a place to put all of us, folks!
That quote comes at 2:40 into this recording:
Limbaugh wants his listeners to believe that Obama plans to put people like them in Gitmo. Limbaugh's is intentionally trying to frighten his extremely naive and gullible listeners into thinking that the evil Obama is coming for them, because because the President of the United States has plans to put his political opponents into concentration camps.
Of course the conspiracy theory of Obama setting up concentration camps for his political opponents wasn't Rush's invention. Michelle Bachmann gets the credit for that.
Bachmann’s Latest Irrational Fear About The Census: It Was Used To Intern The Japanese
BACHMANN: If we look at American history, between 1942 and 1947, the data that was collected by the census bureau was handed over to the FBI and other organizations, at the request of President Roosevelt, and that’s how the Japanese were rounded up and put into the internment camps. I’m not saying that’s what the Administration is planning to do. But I am saying that private, personal information that was given to the census bureau in the 1940s was used against Americans to round them up.
Then later during today's show Limbaugh touts Bachmann for her courage for embracing the full crazy.
RUSH: I mention this because Bachmann is out there not holding back. Gangster government, anti-American values, she's saying it.
Does it make you uncomfortable, or are you going, "You go, girl." And do you want your presidential nominee to be taking the same tack or do you think it's a loser?
RUSH: Now, back to more Michele Bachmann on Meet the Depressed yesterday. She's one of the few Republicans who remembers what the last election was actually about, and it wasn't that long ago.
RUSH: If we're gonna go out trying to make sure that they're not offended by what we do, hell, we may as well mail it in and just say Republicans are not gonna run anybody, we're gonna save our money for 2016, Obama, it's yours.
Rush Limbaugh isn't to only one who's giving recognition to Michele Bachmann's rising stature of the Republican Party's Tea Party wing.
Michele Bachmann bumps Sarah Palin as Tea Party Queen
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is pushing Sarah Palin off her throne as queen of the Tea Party. This considered opinion comes after watching Bachmann on "Meet the Press." I didn't agree with 99.9 percent of what she said, but in 12 minutes on MTP she demonstrated why she is a better leader of the angry wing of the Republican Party than Palin.
So, if you're nestled in the angry wing of the Republican Party, Bachmann is the kind of leader you need. Sure, the Tea Party isn't as angry today as it was last fall. But Bachmann is showing time and again that she does a far better job of lending an authoritative voice to her followers' frustrations than Palin ever could.
Since John McCain's defeat Rush Limbaugh has been filling the void as the effective default leader of the current Republican Party. We shouldn't dismiss or minimize the importance of Rush Limbaugh's inflammatory smear of President Obama planning concentration camps. Limbaugh's character assassination of the American President, equating him with a Stalin or a Hitler by implication is intolerable.
