I never said he did it out of concern that Rush wouldn't be taken seriously. I believe he meant that anyone who pulls the nazi card runs the risk of looking foolish to other observers.

Do you really believe the WH was threatening Rush with some kind of gag order or act of violence? You said yourself that they enjoy being able to discredit him. This was just another way of doing it. If the WH did anything to silence or remove Rush, they'd be doing the exact opposite of what they want: they'd ignite and mobilize the disenfranchised Republicans.

I'm sorry, I just don't think that's going to happen.

Thanks for replying to my post, although it would have been nice if you actually had addressed some of the points, because I do think they're valid.

Please tell us with all your wisdom what was meant by telling Rush he is on thin ice?

Oh, and I'm sure you feel the same way about Pelosi using the Nazi reference yesterday right? Probably not.

I think when Helen Thomas spoke up at that press meeting a few weeks back gives a pretty good indication on what direction and what tatics this regime is going to use. It's down right scary and completly obveous. Especially with here comment about never witnessing these tatics in all her years reporting. And I believe she's on team (D).

These guys are terrorist by their own definition and absolute traitors to the Constitution and to all of us.

This regime is going to self-destruct and bring the country down with them.

This is all a game for the masses. Washington is run by one party and they are all on the same page. All the rest of this is simply drama to keep us all distracted and mad at each other so we don't notice that we have no voice. The more dramatic the program that's being implemented the more dramatic the show needs to be.

I don't claim wisdom. Just the underrated ability to not just listen, but to hear. As Avenginggekko has said in multiple posts it seems Gibbs was referring to the idea that if you throw out "Yer a Nazi" you lose credibility.

Most of those in this thread would never think about actually reassessing something and coming back to reality so I will assume this post will slip into the ether of the radical right's insane id. Have fun twirling while the world tries to fix things.

Well, if the shoe fits, wear it!
This video of Obama union thugs beating up a black conservative who is opposed to health care sure does look like Nazi Brown Shirt tactics to me:

I think Pelosi used poor wording but I am pretty sure a picture is worth a 1000 words.

Did you watch the clip? There were no threats made. Gibbs was asked what was thought of the use of Nazi imagery, and the comparison of the administration to Nazis.

The response was that, us as Americans, should be able to discuss things without using such things. That we should be able to intelligently debate things.

I see no problem with that. No threats of taking him off the air or anything of the sorts.

That's obvious.

That did not answer one question so I will ask them again.

Please tell us with all your logic ability what was meant by telling Rush he is on thin ice? And your response above does not answer this question.

Oh, and I'm sure you feel the same way about Pelosi using the Nazi reference yesterday right? Probably not. And you did not even try to answer this one.

Poor wording? How convienent.
That always seems to be the excuse.

Also, all those people in the photo were in Pelosi's crowd?


Anyway, it does not matter because Pelosi insinuated that the people in the crowd were Nazi's however the people were refering to the her and the administration as being Nazi's. Big difference. Nice try though.
Pelosi is so retarded, she does not know the difference.

OK you know what the people in these pictures were referring to how? What magic are you using to divine that info?

As to my "not answering your questions". I did, you don't see it. Those who go through the same motion in perpetuity thinking the outcome will change are insane. Therefore explaining it to you again would make little sense no?

Thanks for the personal assault. Excellent use of the ideologues debate tactics, if you can't make a point, belittle the opponent to obfuscate your lack of knowledge (you did an good job).

Again do you really think they care if Rush looks foolish to anyone?

The White House has tried several times to make Rush look foolish. Are we suppose to see this as Gibbs giving Rush a friendly warning that he is in danger of looking foolish?

What Gibbs meant by what he said is anyones guess. But if that guess was that it was a friendly warning is really reaching.

I really hate bringing this up time and time again, but Bush Nazi Protest

The point is this is supposed to be the administration of "change" and business as usual is over in Washington, I have to say though he is right, except it is Chicago style thug politics that has now infested Washington.

Gatta love that change.

Maddow said those protests were organized by the Republicans.

I say that the Democrats put those people with the Nazi posters in the crowd to discredit the rest of the protesters.

I just updated a thread that I created in November of 2008. Take a look at it, if you want to see how this entire scenario was predicted. The prediction came from an Ex-Hitler Youth member, warning America where it was headed.
Too bad no one listened.

Umm....I have eyes.

Let's see.....we have a picture of Obama looking like Hitler and another sign with Obama written on it under a crossed out Nazi symbol and another one with a crossed out Nazi symbol which reads 'no facism.

I think it's fairly obvious to even a monkey these people are saying the Obama administration is acting like Nazi's.

I don't think if they were Nazi's like Pelosi claims that they would have crossed out Nazi symbols.
Use your brain man.


Thanks for the personal assault.

If you think that is a insult then you have some very thin skin.



Excellent use of the ideologues debate tactics, if you can't make a point, belittle the opponent to obfuscate your lack of knowledge .

Ok, then you lost the debate to someone who is lacking knowledge.
That does not make you look good.


Oh, and how are all those people in the photo who are at different locations able to be at the same Pelosi meeting?
Perhaps Pelosi has a crystal ball.

I dont care for this kind of talk about Hitler whether coming from the Democrats or Republicans...and both of them use Hitler regularly to keep us on the treadmill.

Whenever I hear any political mouthpiece use the word Hitler I know that I am automatically supposed to stop thinking for myself and jump on the patriotic bandwagon...wave flags and support whatever cause celeb is being foisted off on me..by default.

While I was not a big Bush fan...or a fan of the administratiion before Bush..I do know that the word Hitler was used extensively by and about both of these administrations.

If this current administration cannot withstand what thier party has been dishing out as a regular menu about others they are clearly showing what a bunch of lightweights they truely are. If they cannot take the same type of criticism or flack they so heavily dished out to others by political party affilliation than they are therefore unsuited for office..but believe themselves "entitled " to the office by default...without question...like Feudal Masters.

The office of President of the United States is one of the most visible offices in the world..and is often under heavy criticism...so too with the political party of the President in office.
THey are showing that they do not have a thick skin as required of the office. Threatening or even vieled threats on the American People clearly indicates unsuitability for the office...both by the President..the people staffing for them and the political party representing them.

This template applies both Republican and Democrat. No different.

The American People expect and believe a President in office and thier party should have much thicker skin than this. This is not Presidential nor is it good politic.

If they are Threatening Rush Limbaugh..it is a clear sign of how hard up they actually are..and this is not Presidential.

It is also not good politic to describe people going to a town hall meeting as Nazis...American peoples wanting to know what their Senators and Represenatives know. To ask them hard questions if need be.

This is no different than Using the Word.."Hitler."

It tells me that someone out there has no respect for the American People and believes themselves "entitled" by default to the moral high ground. Entitlement politics is not American Politics...it is Royalty...from Europe..and the UK. This is Feudalism..not a represenative government. It is Royalty and America is not a Royal Fiefdom of the body politic.

This political party in office is begining to show its true hand..the true hand which is operating inside the glove which is pulling the puppet strings of this Political Administration.

This Political Party in office is also begining to show its contempt for the American People and American Values and thinking....because it believes itself "Entitled."
I have known this about the political party currently in office..since before the election last year. It is begining to bear out its fruit.

OH..and while I am thinking about it...talk radio... or talk radio hosts...
Do these recent events bear any light on why Air America and left wing talk radio did not do well??
