"At the White House on Tuesday, President Obama delivered a statement and took questions from reporters on the partial government shutdown and the ongoing fight over raising the federal debt ceiling," Rush writes in his latest tirade. "I think that the only thing worse than having to endure the interminable effluvia of falsehoods was having to hear them over and again as he flapped his meaty, deceitful lips for an entire hour."
Rush then proceeds to quote Adolf Hitler: "We will not capitulate – no, never! We may be destroyed, but if we are, we shall drag a world with us – a world in flames," as if to insinuate that it was Obama's idea to constantly attach demands to the debt ceiling.
"It is Obama’s obstinacy that so many are finding troublesome," Rush continues. "Cited as being unprecedented, this ought not be a surprise, since having a revolutionary Marxist in the White House is also unprecedented. His modality has become that of a dictator, as evidenced by those who have recognized this and articulated the same. On Monday, Arizona state Rep. Brenda Barton posted on her Facebook page that 'Someone is paying the National Park Service thugs overtime for their efforts to carry out the order of De Fuhrer [sp],' likening Obama to Nazi despot Adolf Hitler.
"By now, Americans have learned of some of the more tyrannical actions on the part of the Obama administration with regard to his enforcement of the partial government shutdown. As if petty actions such as going out of the way to curtail access to open-air memorials and parks weren’t enough, we have now learned that the Obama administration dispatched federal thugs to evict octogenarians who have lived for decades in homes that happen to be located on federal lands."
As has already been covered when Steve Doocy and Bryan Fischer accused Obama of sending personnel to the World War II memorial, the charges are a complete load of crap. And Erik Rush adding his name to the list of accusers didn't make it any less of a load of crap either.
"This, gentle reader, is tyranny, the tyranny of a narcissistic sociopath and lifelong student of Marxism whose end game is to usurp complete power," Rush concludes. "All of the historical signs of communist ascendancy are present in this administration and in this president. What more evidence do we need?"
To answer Rush's question: Evidence, period, for starters. Unless, of course, asking for evidence is still a liberal ruse.
