On his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh defended Germany for the Holocaust by saying that Obama is ripping Germany to shreds for something they did 60 years ago, one day after praising all of Islam. Rush is saying that the Holocaust should be forgotten about. I guess the killing of 6 million Jews isn’t as important to him as painting Obama as a Muslim lover.
Here is the audio from Media Matters:
Limbaugh said, “He is beating Germany up. He is ripping them to shreds over something they did 60 years ago. One day after praising all of Islam. Now can you imagine, there’s of course Elie Wiesel gets up there and he does his thing but it’s 65 years here or close to it…He’s up there and he’s ripping Germany for what it did 60 or 65 years ago, blah, blah, blah, blah. One day after praising to the hilt Islam, and talking about Islam, how America is a Muslim nation, so forth.”
Limbaugh is saying that Holocaust is no big deal anymore, because it happened almost 70 years ago. We should forget about it all. I watched Obama’s speech and I didn’t see any of the animosity between Merkel and Obama that Rush claimed existed. Limbaugh also managed to dismiss Elie Wiesel’s Nobel Peace Prize winning work and his lifetime of effort to make sure that the Holocaust is never forgotten.
According to Limbaugh we should tell all of the Holocaust survivors to get over it. It is ancient history. Did you ever notice that these right wing radio hosts are infatuated with the Nazis? Every day Limbaugh, Beck, or Savage seems to make a comparison to either fascism or the Nazis. It is almost a collective obsession with the right wing. It is statements like this from that prove Al Franken correct. Rush Limbaugh really is a big fat idiot.
