Erik Rush: "Stop pretending Obama is our president"

See also

Erik Rush is already widely regarded as one of the most psychotic men on the planet, and yet he somehow always manages to make his past self look sane by comparison.

In the past, Rush had advocated for violently overthrowing the democratically-elected Obama administration while inventing wild conspiracy theories and advocating in favor of facism.

Now in his latest column, Rush has apparently deluded himself into thinking that Obama was never elected in the first place and rages at the rest of the world who still has any attachment to reality.

"When are we going to stop pretending that the individual representing himself as Barack Hussein Obama and currently holding the office of president of the United States is anything other than a foreign-backed, Marxist operative and Islamist whose objectives include the effective destruction of America as we know it?" he writes.

Answer: They're not. They know he's something other than that. Rush just needs to imagine otherwise in order to continue living with himself.

Rush proceeds to once again claim that he "could crack the façade concerning our president’s motives in seconds," but once again subsequently refuses to do so.

"'Why is it that everything – everything – Obama has done has had a detrimental effect on America?' Enumerating them and clarifying said motives would, of course, be child's play," he writes.

Answer: It didn't. Since Obama took office, the stock market has gone up, unemployment has gone down, and Osama Bin Laden has been brought to justice. The only things these have been "detrimental" to are the Tea Party's political ambitions and Erik Rush's sanity.

The remainder of Rush's column reads off a long laundry list of his usual conspiracy theories, predominantly his old (and debunked) claim that Obama was arming Al-Qaeda rebels in Syria, as well as long list of (mostly feeble) connections to Egypt's Mohamed Morsi (who was democratically elected, and we all know how much Erik Rush hates democracy).

Rush concludes by once again lashing out at the press for not agreeing with him, and calls on "anyone left in Congress who possesses a spine to rally behind Bachmann, Gohmert and King toward removing this obscenity of an administration from Washington with all due haste."
