Limbaugh, On Obama's Visit To West Point: 'Will They Detain Him? Hopefully'

Quote:
Rush Limbaugh may have crossed another line today in his anti-Obama rhetoric -- openly joking (at least, we hope he's joking) about a military coup.

Limbaugh noted that President Obama will be delivering his upcoming speech on Afghanistan, from the United States Military Academy at West Point.

"My question is: Will they detain him?" said Limbaugh. "Hopefully."

Even I.. "remarkably"... can see the humor in this and yet...I'm sure there are some people out there that would support the idea of a military coup...

Art Bell and George Nory have less conspiracy theories than this idiot. And I don't think he's stupid; I only call him an idiot because I used up my monthly allotment of tenses of 'puke'.
He and GB are anti American squeeze boxes, propaganda machines extraordinaire.
Where the hell do they find such specific actors? Doing the same gig every day-for years.

Everyone here would support a military coup given the right circumstances. Those circumstances are particular to each individual. Just saying.

Not in this country.

Maybe in South America, but not here.

BTW, what circumstances are you referring too?

I am amazed at how some will try to *rationalize* such situations.

Here we have the *everybody's got an opinion* approach, which attempts to treat Rush's actions as *just another opinion*.
It's not.
And that is what some on the right doesn't seem to get about their aggressive, careless approach. They refuse to recognize the implication and consequences of their actions.


With that said, I remember when Bush was president we had liberals advocating for the capture of some in the Bush administration and asking for them to be arrested as "war criminals".
http://www.politicalwrinkles.com/opi...-criminal.html
I unilaterally condemned that action.

But of course, the conservatives ignore their own ...
Rush has a ridiculously LARGE viewership, as opposed to the measly membership in the liberal example.
But don't worry. It's the liberals who are the partisan ones...

You have no idea what I said, foundit66, because you haven't thought about it.

Then explain it to me.

I think I nailed what you were saying, but if you feel I misrepresented your statement then correct me.

Not a rationalization because in my post I'm not supporting any particular reason for a coup just making an observation about humans. For every person there is a circumstance, some circumstance, that will compel him/her to support a coup against a government. It was pretty obvious the first time.

Now we can talk about what "support a coup" means, I suppose.
