Limbaugh Endorses Prison Camps for Union Organizers

Following a fawning interview with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, on his radio show today Rush Limbaugh expressed support for putting union organizers in prison camps:

You tried to unionize in China? If you try to pull off in China what they're doing in Wisconsin, it's the union that goes to jail, prison camp, reeducation, hard labor, what have you.

Limbaugh also displayed his incredible ignorance of how elections work (“if Mickey Mouse and Adolf Hitler can sign a recall petition, there's no doubt in my mind they can also vote”). Of course, anybody can sign a recall petition with any name, and organizers are obligated to turn in all of the names. But fake names aren't counted, nor can they vote.

Still, the strangest and most disturbing comment by Limbaugh today had nothing to do smearing unions, but instead was about smearing shoe polish. Fondly recalled his days shining shoes in a barbershop, Limbaugh declared: “I loved making shoes was a fetish.”
