Nothing delights us more here at Right Wing Watch than having some of our “favorites” get together, and we were lucky enough to see that yesterday when Erik Rush, the insane WorldNetDaily columnist and Fox News regular, was the special guest on TruNews with Rick Wiles.
Rush told Wiles that no one, even people who actually know the definition of communism, will stop him from charging that his opponents are communists. After warning of a looming police state, Rush reiterated his call to put journalists in prison for treason: “I honestly believe that there are some news bureau chiefs who deserve to be sitting and cooling their heels in penitentiaries because some of what is going on in the press I really see as being treasonous, in addition to the high crimes that are being committed by the administration.”
The pair tried to outdo each other to see who was first to warn that Obama was a communist bent on inciting a civil war. Wiles said that he predicted in 2008 that Obama’s would incite a Marxist revolution and try to “start a civil war” just as Abraham Lincoln did.
Rush, however, saw Obama’s plan to “foment a Marxist revolution” develop “before 2007 was out.” He told Wiles that he now fears “there’s any number of things he can do to push the button and have that take place and he’s just getting his ducks in a row.”
Later, Rush charged that people who refuse to believe their claims about the looming civil war are simply in denial, lamenting that “it’s not going to be apparent to them until the bullets are flying.”
Wiles: I said in 2008 that if Mr. Obama gets in the White House he will start a revolution in this country; I warned that this was a Marxist takeover of the country. In January of 2009, I said this man is going to pattern himself—his supporters are going to tell us that he’s not FDR, he’s Abraham Lincoln. Because everybody was thinking they’re going to paint him as the new FDR, and I said in January of 2009, no, they’re going to paint him as Abraham Lincoln and the reason is his agenda is to start a civil war. I know that sounds wild and crazy.
Wiles: But I really believe this man wants a civil war.
Rush: I don’t want to try to sound like I’m one-upping you but I believe that before 2007 was out, only by virtue of being one of the first people on it, I looked at this guy and I was like, if this guy gets in, he’s going to try to foment a Marxist revolution, straight up. If you look at the way things stand now, he’s got any number of ways he can do it: the economy, you know, economic collapse; race; he’s got the Occupy Wall Street people with Van Jones running them, which few people know, who is still working for Obama, which knew people know. There’s any number of things he can do to push the button and have that take place and he’s just getting his ducks in a row and of course people think that you and I are nuts when we say these things but there is ample evidence there, more than ample evidence.
Rush: I know that there are people who are either socialist or socialist-leaning who don’t advocate for a wholesale communist overthrow of the government, there are some of them who just don’t believe it and then there are a small percentage who are completely, as some would say, down with that. But what bothers me of course that it is so incomprehensible to so many people, even a lot of conservatives, that I’m afraid it’s not going to be apparent to them until the bullets are flying.
