Left’s Viciousness on Display at Correspondents’ DinDin

Reports of what went on at last evening’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner left me feeling ill. The vile things said about Rush Limbaugh by guest speaker Wanda Sykes show just how evil these people are. President Giggles was having a gay old time, yukking it up when Sykes said;

“Rush Limbaugh said he hopes this administration fails,” Sykes said. “So you’re saying, ‘I hope America fails’, you’re, like, ‘I don’t care about people losing their homes, their jobs, our soldiers in Iraq’. He just wants the country to fail. To me, that’s treason He’s not saying anything differently than what Osama bin Laden is saying. You know, you might want to look into this, sir, because I think Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker. But he was just so strung out on OxyContin he missed his flight.”

Sykes then said, “Rush Limbaugh, I hope the country fails, I hope his kidneys fail, how about that? He needs a good waterboarding, that’s what he needs.”

Pat Buchanan says these remarks were way over the top and damaged the dinner (event). Tony Harnden, U.S. editor for The Telegraph (U.K.) writes today: (excerpts, emphasis added))

Although the Left is reporting her White House Correspondents’ Dinner speech as “taking shots” at Limbaugh and mocking everyone, that’s a gross misrepresentation of what turned into a hateful and disgusting diatribe….I was at the dinner and I began by laughing at Sykes’s gentle teases about the press loving Obama…But the speech took a very ugly turn when she laid into Limbaugh..(see quotes above)..She then concluded: “Rush Limbaugh, I hope the country fails, I hope his kidneys fail, how about that? He needs a good waterboarding, that’s what he needs.” Obama seemed to think this bit was pretty hilarious, grinning and chuckling and turning to share the “joke” with the person sitting on his right….There’s not much room for differing interpretations of what Sykes said. She called Limbaugh a terrorist and a traitor, suggested that he be tortured and wished him dead.What was his crime? Hoping that Obama’s policies – which he views as socialist – will fail.That’s way, way beyond reasoned debate or comedy and Obama’s reaction to it was astonishing.

    These are the people who provide and create news? No wonder more are taking to the net where bashing may occur but presented in a format where opinion is expected.

    Evil??? Ha. Puh-LEEZ. Have you listened to the things Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Mark Levin or any of these extreme right wing nut balls say on a regular basis? Actually, I know you do — so not sure where the disconnect is here, Dad. What Wanda Sykes said is tame in comparison. And, frankly, I hope Rush Limbaugh’s kidneys fail too. He is nothing but a steaming pile of dog doo on the boot of society.

      You write as though you have, in fact, “listened to the things Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Mark Levin …. say on a regular basis?” I am quite sure you have not. I am an occasional listener to Limbaugh. Levin, and Coulter. With the possible exception of Ann Coulter, who I am sure is capable of satirically wishing a pox on someone, these folks have never expressed death fantasies about others. Your comment re-enforces my point that hate speech permeates the Left. By the way, Mark Levin is a patriot, a gentleman, a constitutional scholar, and a dog lover. Rush Limbaugh is a a patriot, a philanthropist, and an entertainer. Ann Coulter is Ann Coulter!

    I am quite sure I HAVE. I frequently listen to the right-wing nutball talk shows just “for fun” and because I believe it’s important to know thy enemy. And I have heard the most extraordinary, over-the-top, hateful, unpatriotic, bellicose, bigoted, vile crap coming out of all three of these people’s mouths. None of these three are gentlemen (well, perhaps Ann Coulter is) but all of them are assholes.
