Rush Tries To Paint The Occupy Wall Street Crowd As Antisemitic

Rush Limbaugh may be as conniving and as hateful as they come, but he is outdoing himself more and more. With his usual mindless flair of flinging shit on the wall and seeing what sticks, today on his radio he has sent the first salvo against the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) crowds. He is secretly laying the undertone for his mindless minions to pick up their marching orders and declare the OWS as antisemitic. Below is a feed courtesy of Media Matters.

Meet The Republican Nominee, Herman Koch-Cain!

Meet The Republican Nominee, Herman Koch-Cain!

If Herman Cain’s 999 plan…or as Bachmann put it the ‘Devil is in the details’ 666 plan, comes to fruition, the poor will surely die in great numbers, while the rich in this country will see their tax rates plummet by some 17%.

Herman Cain’s 15 Minutes Of Fame

Herman Cain’s 15 Minutes Of Fame

I hope Herman Cain enjoys his 15 minutes of fame, because once people find out what is in his 9-9-9 plan, his popularity is going to sink like a stone. It is the largest tax giveaway in history to corporate America, while it places an unfair tax burden onto the backs of the poor.

Governor Rick Perry (R-TX)

Rick Perry Thinks The American Revolution Occurred In The 1500s

The only year Rick Perry needed to remember was 1776. But he couldn’t even do that. Perry was asked about state’s rights by a local ABC affiliate, and apparently he thinks America declared independence from England a full two centuries earlier than the actual date.

Beat Your Wife? If You Move To Topeka, KS You Won’t Get Charged With A Crime

On October 5, 2011, I was alerted to a little article in Feministing wherein the author referred to the situation being discussed as a ‘clusterf**k.’ This got my immediate attention–thinking perhaps Dad was sending me a message–and I discovered that due to budget cuts, Shawnee County’s (Topeka) District Attorney, Chad Taylor, would no longer be prosecuting misdemeanors, including domestic violence cases.

The Republicans are proud. I get that. They are hard workers. I get that. They don’t think of themselves as victims. I get that. I get all of that because I am exactly like them, with one exception. I understand that our system is broken. I understand that money has corrupted the political process. I understand that Wall Street controls our economy.

Republican Hatred For Obama Is Killing America

Democratic leaders immediately voiced support and empathy for the protesters. So in order to not look like the bad guys, the Republicans decided that maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to ridicule this growing “mob” because the vastly increasing number of protesters might not appreciate being called thugs. So the Republicans switched their song to – the protesters are angry with the Obama administration for creating class warfare.
