Rush Limbaugh caused a bit of a stir today when he, not unlike a whiny teenager, compared people he disagrees with to Nazis.
Dittoheads ran to “the Google” to find some side by side pics on conservative blog Sweetness Light of the logo of the new Universal Healthcare Plan and some Nazi symbolism. The Führer furor began when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took aim at astroturfing right-wingers across the country who are disrupting town hall meetings on the controversial plan to bring Universal Healthcare to all Americans. In a statement, DCCC spokeswoman Jennifer Crider said:
“At a time when families need real solutions to rebuild the economy and make health care more affordable, Rush Limbaugh is attempting to sidetrack the important debate through his use of symbols that are synonymous with murder and intolerance. Americans deserve better.”
So what do you think? Can any idiot see that it’s just a caduceus, used by medical professionals since antiquity and far outdating the Nazis? Or is this part of some sinister plan to… I’m not really sure what. Treat sick people? Wrest money out of the hands of big pharma and redirect it to actual medical care?
