Rosie O'Donnell, Guest Use Show To Push State Takeover Of Industry
O'Donnell, Actor Guest Make Case For Communism In America
*** ELSEWHERE: Mark Levin On Unions, Arizona Immigration Law ***
Feeling nostalgic for the bad old days of the Soviet Union? Then look no further than XM Sirius Satellite Radio, where Rosie O'Donnell and friends utilize a lifestyle channel to promote hard-line Red propaganda.
Together with Comrade Euan Morton, yesterday's show extolled the wonders of a truly utopian society, where adults share possessions the same way children let others play with their toys.
Morton is an actor best known for his role in the ill-fated Boy George musical Taboo. He's also the son-in-law of Richard Armitage. The musical was produced by O'Donnell.
And yes, the C-word (communism) was actually used in this discussion, so don't blame your Radio Equalizer. From yesterday's Rosie Radio:
EUAN MORTON (1:18:56): This is a ridiculous idea, 'cause we don't live in a utopian, what's the word, communist society, but wouldn't you just love to have the federal government and I know people talk about big government and all the rest of it, it's just nonsense, I'd love to have the federal government take over the oil companies, use the money to give our children free education, and then in the future we can educate our children to start doing things like solar power, wind power--
MORTON: I don't know why it's not being done, it's plainly obvious. It's screaing out for someone. This is a Biblical age we are living in. The problems are massive. Volcanoes stopping flights. These are huge problems that we're now facing. Rather than having it pour into the ocean for 41 days, another two months to drill another well to top it off, we have to have a way of making the kind of sea change that we need to make in the self-proclaimed leader of the free world--
O'DONNELL: James Carville said the best thing. He said Obama needs to come down here and tell BP, 'I'm your daddy, I am takin' it over', but they haven't been able to do it [...]
MORTON: [...] It's frightening that we can go off in the world and spread our 'democracy' -- I did air quotes there -- and yet here in our own country we can't rescue our own people, that we can't look after our own people. We can't give them education, we can't afford to give them health care, but we can go over there and spend billions of dollars a week doing what we're doing in Afghanistan, in Iraq and soon to be North Korea, in Iran, with Israel. We are spending money, so much money abroad and leaving ourselves destitute. It's frightening, it's really frightening.
O'DONNELL: I totally agree. It is terrifying.
MORTON: I was talking to someone in a bar recently and he was giving me this 'Obama's fantastic, and it's changing the world'. And ultimately, he's better than Bush. You could put a carrot as the president and it'd be better than Bush, but [Obama] it's just another man, a figurehead at the top of a system which is fundamentally broken and doesn't work and unless we make massive changes, it won't matter who's the president.
O'DONNELL: Unless he's able to really muster up the courage to say I'm gonna be as long term as, maybe one term but you know what I'm doing? I'm ending Don't Ask Don't Tell right now and I'm signing an executive order and I'm taking over the BP oil spill, like, boom, boom, boom. Someone has to do it.
MORTON: Someone has to do it. Someone has to make big, brave decisions. And you know what, it might not be great for a lot of people in the country, and there'll be fear and there'll be doubt, but there's already fear and doubt anyway. We're living in a system where every day we wake up to orange level, red level...
Yes, in the strange world of Rosie & Pals, Obama's forced takeover of America's system of capitalism and democracy is proceeding at a pace that's simply too slow. Too bad Stalin and Lenin aren't around to provide the proper guidance.
