Limbaugh: What if Krauthammer or O’Reilly had talked of defecating into Obama’s mouth?

On his Wednesday radio program, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh asked what would happen if a prominent Fox News commentator such as Charles Krauthammer or Bill O’Reilly said someone should defecate in President Obama’s mouth.

The hypothetical question came after MSNBC host Martin Bashir suggested that someone should defecate and urinate in former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s mouth. He later apologized for the remark.

“[Bashir] said it thinking that he had just made something profound, a great point,” Limbaugh explained.  “It sat there all weekend long and there was not one peep from anybody at MSNBC suggesting that it was in any way inappropriate.  But over the weekend something did happen and on Monday, or maybe it was yesterday, I forget which, he made a big apology and it was said to be heartfelt and serious.  But it asks an even larger question:  Why is he still there?  You know, pick anybody you want at Fox.  Let’s say Dr. Krauthammer, or Ted O’Baxter [Bill O’Reilly] would suggest that somebody do to Obama what Bashir suggested happen to Sarah Palin, what do you think would have happened?  Within seconds they would have been yanked off the air before their show was over.”

Limbaugh suggested Fox News president Roger Ailes would have acted personally to remove someone who made a comment like that off the air.

“Roger Ailes would have stormed down there and taken them off the air publicly, and that would be the end of them.  They wouldn’t have even finished their show.  That’s exactly right.  If Ailes had to sit there and do the rest of the hour himself, he would yank whoever did that off the air.  At MSNBC, what’s the big deal?  Apology takes care of it and that’s it.”

“These are truly reprehensible people over there,” Limbaugh continued. “And, again, if you look at, I think, the terrified state that the left finds themselves in right now — and, by the way, that’s a self-contained state.  I’m not saying it means anything.  I don’t want anybody to conclude that I believe that what’s happening now represents a fundamental shift in the thinking of the American people.  I’m holding out hope that it does, but I’m not lost in this yet.  But what is happening is real, and I’m telling you, the failure of MSNBC, the fact that it has no audience, that it’s laughed about and has no respect, it’s all in the mix with how every other leftist radical in this country looks.”
