Yesterday, the National Political Rebuttal column reported that, in response to Pope Francis' condemnation of unfettered capitalism and the idolatry of money, Rush Limbaugh denounced his remarks as "pure Marxism."
Since then, Limbaugh has yet to calm down. In fact, he has instead moved on to the usual nonsense about Obama hating America, claiming that Obama was "having an orgasm" over Francis "ripping America."
Obama mentioned Francis' remarks the night before, prompting Limbaugh to declare that Obama "just can’t wait to rip this country apart."
"This is the president citing the pope, his new best friend, because the pope is ripping America, the pope ripping capitalism," Limbaugh declared. "And Obama’s having an orgasm. Jeremiah Wright is beside himself. Jeremiah Wright thought he was Obama’s preacher, now pope somehow has co-opted Obama.
"This guy can't wait to rip this country apart, every day, whenever there's an opportunity to criticize this country, he's the first in line," Limbaugh said of Obama. "And that is just an outright falsehood that the increasing inequality — income, wealth, whatever — is most pronounced in our country."
Francis never actually called out America by name, but apparently Limbaugh's love of money is so huge that he can neither distinguish it from faith nor patriotism alike.
Limbaugh also once again made it a point to completely misrepresent the point both Francis and Obama were trying to make, claiming to summarize Obama as "'We've got too many rich people, we need more people who are poor and lower middle class, that's the only way we can have equality and fairness.'"
Now, in addition to not being able to tell his love of money from his love of God or his love of country, we also know that Rush Limbaugh is incapable of recognizing people by any terms except by their money.
Is it any wonder now that Pope Francis denouncing greed put such a huge bug up Rush Limbaugh's butt that he hasn't been able to shut up about it yet?
