AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

Nobody is Calling it The Lost Decade but You, Dumbo

Another excellent show by Rush today. He lays out the obvious fact that Obama is practicing Hitler’s tactic of “The Big Lie”:

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: I know, I know, I know, I know, we’re not supposed to talk about Adolf Hitler but this administration making it really, really tough to ignore some facts out there.

[ … ]

Talking about the Big Lie from his 1925 autobiography Mein Kampf, the Big Lie was an expression coined by Hitler, and the Big Lie is exactly what all of liberalism is, the Big Lie is exactly what all of Marxism is or socialism is or communism is. Now, today Obama went out there with Plugs Biden, he had the ash on his forehead, it’s Ash Wednesday out there. [ … ] The Big Lie today is the stimulus worked. They’re doubling down on this and the reason why they’re doubling down on this is because it’s been such an abominable failure. The polling data — we had this yesterday — only 6% of the American people think the stimulus created any new jobs. Therefore, 94% of the American people know it didn’t work, so what does Obama do? The only thing he knows how to do is to double down and tell them they’re wrong and incorporate the Big Lie. We got some sound bites here from this morning just to illustrate this, blaming Bush, not reading the polls. The American people are not buying any of this. This is part of Obama’s new communication strategy: blame Bush and claim the stimulus saved us from depression. What’s new about that? Not one thing. It is the same lie, it is the same strategery continued.

OBAMA: I want to begin by recalling where we were one year ago.

RUSH: Stop and recue this son of a gun. As though we don’t know what you think. (imitating Obama) “Let me be clear. I want to begin by recalling. Remember this. Let me be clear.” All this professorial BS. Well, I’ll try not to interrupt this stuff, folks, but I’m going to tell you, I can’t stand being lied to when I know I’m being lied to and when I know that the person talking to me is lying to me, they know that they’re lying, that, and arrogance and condescension, cockiness, unwarranted conceit, those kind of human characters just drive me nuts.

OBAMA: I want to begin by recalling where we were one year ago.

RUSH: Oh, jeez.

OBAMA: Millions of jobs had already been lost to the recession before I was sworn into office. Another 800,000 would be lost in the month of January. Economists from across the political spectrum warned that–

RUSH: Stop the tape a minute. I can’t help it. Stop the tape. Go back, if you want to find out where the really big job numbers being lost started, take a look November of 2008, right after Obama was elected, then look at December, and then look at January, and you will find that businesses started laying off people after Obama won the election, and some of them started before he won the election ’cause they knew what was coming down the pike. All right. This is torture. This is plain old torture. Here, keep going.

OBAMA: –if dramatic action was not taken to break the back of the recession, the United States could spiral into another depression. That was the backdrop against which I signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

RUSH: Yeah.

OBAMA: And one year later, it is largely thanks to the Recovery Act –

RUSH: Yeah.

OBAMA: — that a second depression is no longer a possibility.

RUSH: Meanwhile, homelessness is at an all-time high, we have that story, amazingly, in TIME Magazine, and we also, ladies and gentlemen, have the news now that Terry Jeffrey, Human Events, has run the numbers, Obama has spent more than FDR did on the New Deal and of course there’s nothing to show for it, zilch, zero, nada, this is the Big Lie. Now, I don’t know whether this next is Obama continuing to display his ignorance of economics or if it’s just his obstinate stubbornness.

OBAMA: During a recession when businesses pull back and people stop spending, what government can do is provide a temporary boost that puts money in people’s pockets –

RUSH: Didn’t do that, though.

OBAMA: — keeps workers on the job –

RUSH: Didn’t do that.

OBAMA: — cuts taxes for small business –

RUSH: Didn’t do that.

OBAMA: — generates more demand –

RUSH: Didn’t do that.

OBAMA: — gives confidence to entrepreneurs that maybe they don’t have to cut back right now.

RUSH: None of that happened! Zilch, zero, nada. Be cool, Rush, be calm. This is nothing new. You’ve heard it all before. It’s the Big Lie. None of that happened. Now, Obama continuing the Big Lie tells you stupid idiots that he cut your taxes next.

OBAMA: We see some polling where about twice as many people think we’ve raised taxes as lower taxes.

RUSH: Yeah?

OBAMA: Ninety-five percent of you got a tax cut.

RUSH: You lie.

OBAMA: I mentioned this at the State of the Union, Joe. They were all kind of squirming in their seats.

RUSH: Because they know you’re lying!

OBAMA: They weren’t sure whether to clap or not because most of them had voted against all these tax cuts. Which I thought was — it was interesting to watch.

RUSH: There were no tax cuts. There was a one-time tax credit. There were no tax cuts and there aren’t going to be any tax cuts as long as this guy is running the show. Nothing but tax increases are heading down the pike. Let’s go back to bashing Bush and let’s call it The Lost Decade, you keep in mind now the Bush decade showed almost no unemployment. It was at 4.7% starting in 2003 after the recovery from 9/11 began.

OBAMA: We knew that even before the crisis hit, we had –

RUSH: Yeah.

OBAMA: — come through what some people are calling The Lost Decade –

RUSH: Yeah.

OBAMA: — a period where there was –

RUSH: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

OBAMA: — barely any job growth and where the income of average American household –

RUSH: Stop the tape. I can’t handle it. Nobody is calling it The Lost Decade but you, Dumbo. Nobody is calling it The Lost Decade. Who besides him is calling it The Lost Decade? I’m thinking ears when I say Dumbo, I’m not thinking of brains but I guess it’s interchangeable. All right, now, let’s go back to Hitler and the Big Lie. In his 1925 autobiography Mein Kampf, the expression was coined by Hitler “to describe a lie so ‘colossal’ that no one would believe that someone ‘could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.'” The Big Lie had to be so big that nobody would believe that anybody would have the audacity to lie that way. If you’re going to lie, go big, put your lie on an Atlas rocket and launch and fire that sucker.

Let me read to you from Adolf Hitler. And, by the way, Adolf Hitler is a big figure out there now, all these videos with Hitler reacting to this and reacting to that. Hitler is enjoying a humorous revival here. Here’s what he wrote:

“All this was inspired by the principle — which is quite true in itself — that in the Big Lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds –“

which is exactly how liberals look at average Americans,

“– they more readily fall victims to the Big Lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation,”

other than, it is a lie. Such as he cares, such as he’s a great spokesman, great vocabulary, maybe he’s smarter than we are, whatever, people will think he couldn’t possibly have the audacity to lie that big, it’s gotta be something wrong with us.

That was Hitler’s theory, because

“For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.”

Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Volume I, Chapter 10. Now, the phrase, the Big Lie, was also used in a report prepared during the war by the OSS, the forerunner to the CIA, the United States Office of Strategic Services in describing Hitler’s psychological profile. This is how the OSS described Hitler’s psychology:

“His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong –“

hello, George W. Bush and the Republicans,

“– people will believe a Big Lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.”

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: So it’s obvious that Obama still thinks he can dupe the dumb masses, just as he did — and just as he knows he did — during the campaign of 2008. It was a giant dupe. He thought he did it then he thinks he can do it again, which is why they’re going back now to this new strategy of getting their message out via a campaign mode. Remember, now, this “lost decade” began in 2007 when the Democrats took over the House and the Senate. Nancy Pelosi and the girls took over the House of Representatives. That’s when all of this garbage began. Barack Obama voted for every spending bill that George Bush and the Republicans put forward, and yet he still has the audacity — and it takes a lot of audacity to tell big lies. He has the audacity to claim that he inherited a mess from Bush, yet he voted for every phase of it.
