Across this great nation, far-right Republicans and conservatives continue to engage in the politics of fear and smear with regard to health care.
Media Matters for America has begun a list to document the extremist language being used by many of those on the far right. And, not surprisingly, some of the worst offenders are Rush Limbaugh and Fox News. This is, of course, no big surprise. Limbaugh and Fox News have been working overtime defending pretty much anything coming from the far right and demonizing just about everything coming from the far left. At least Limbaugh is honest about being dangerously hateful and conservative. With him, what you see is what you get. Fox News, on the other hand, lies about being fair and balanced while being anything but fair and balanced.
Health care has driven the far right to sanity’s breaking point. The right wing has mobilized in an effort to do everything within its power (using its public relations team, Fox News, to get it done).
Here are a few of the insane comments from some on the far right:
RUSH LIMBAUGH: “Mullah Nancy Bin Pelosi … is no different” than those who “convince all these people to put bombs on their kids.”
LIMBAUGH: Democrats are “the kamikaze party.”
ANDREW BREITBART: Calls President Obama “Suicide-Bomber-In-Chief.”
MONICA CROWLEY: Health care reform is Democrats’ “suicide mission.”
Limbaugh is an unpatriotic extremist, Breitbart is a nut and an extremist and Crowley is just …. Monica Crowley (if you have seen her on Fox News you know how little she really has to offer that is positive and fair).
These are but a VERY few samples of hate speech compiled by Media Matters for America illustrating the lengths to which far-right conservatives will go to derail health care and demonize opponents.
