I wasn't aware that Rush Limbaugh has said that. That sounds more like something Michael Savage would say.
His quote is: "I tell people don't kill all the liberals, leave enough around so we can have two on every campus; living fossils, so we will never forget what these people stood for."
Winterhilf was admittedly 'charity' the way zakat is 'voluntary' but the fact that they were giving necessities to the poor to curry favor is the basis of the program. Strength Through Joy was not targeted at bringing in revenue from foreigners, it provided free or heavily subsidized vacations to German Workers and was a copy of a similar Fascist program.
Firstly, none of them claim solely that Bush was not legitimately elected. Secondly, declaring the process illegitimate and claiming he did not win the popular vote are two entirely different things. And you've just stated an opinion, about Bush's character and about his qualifications to lead. They are not facts nor particularly relevant, I would think.
The overall tone here is discussing the applicability of calling Republican/Rupert Murdoch tactics fascist versus the applicability of calling progressive/liberal tactics fascist. You explicitly pointed out that the intent of Nazi social programs was to appease the poor - and they generally never materialized in any real form in the first place, for example.
And Bush revealed his narcissism in claiming that the low point of his presidency was, of all things, being called out by Kanye West. No sense of responsibility for any of his failures - but heaven help him if his feelings were hurt. Carter hurt his feelings, too.
“When I mention that Democrats are problem solvers, I can think of only one Republican who can be a problem solver — that is Vice President Dick Cheney if he would just take George on a hunting trip,” -Democratic Governor of Kentucky, Steve Beshear
This is wishing disfigurement on someone at the least, which I will certainly concede was very, very common on the left. I don't know if it was as common or as bad as what Pelosi got, however. The hate Republicans had for that woman was mindblowing. Maybe because she was actually effective.
"Maher: You could have went to New Hampshire and killed two birds with one stone.
Kerry: Or, I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone."
I'm trying to find the actual source for this. I can only find right wing sites claiming it but - oddly - none of them show the video.
One claims it is from 2006, another from 2004. At least in the former case, Kerry could simply call it a figure of speech by way of assuming the presidency - since little timing context is provided on the sites where I find it.
The two I got from Google, joking about killing and assassination of the President. I've not heard any of the things you've heard Limbaugh say, but then again I don't listen to him. I don't listen to Democratic talkshows either, though. And Steve Cohen recently called the Republicans Nazis (or rather said they used Nazi-like tactics) which is the last one, not a news outlet but I think it still counts.
You're right, though, one example doesn't matter. For either of our positions. We'd need a meta-analysis and I don't think either of us have the time or resources to perform one. Until one is made, we're running off of opinions and anecdotal evidence.
I was being a bit facetious with that. It's mostly that the left has been very slow to accuse Fox, Murdoch, Ailes, and Republicans of fascism, though many have cited proto-fascist elements such as anti-intellectualism, belief in the use of force to gain political power, citing criticism as 'anti-American' when they have power, a strong jingoistic streak, and so on. Then the LaRouchies came around and beat everyone to the punch, and the right wing picked up on it.
I'm not saying that they don't genuinely believe it. One authoritarian trait is to assume that everyone else thinks like you, so they genuinely fear a strong, charismatic leader who is not 'one of them', because America is struggling right now and struggling people are very vulnerable. "We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. 'Necessitous men are not free men.' People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made." - FDR
So they also see the equivalence.
