Rush Limbaugh: Tucson Memorial T-Shirt Obama Election Slogan

Remember the t-shirts on the back of chairs at the memorial for Tucson shooting victims? Rush Limbaugh found proof that the text on the shirts “Together We Thrive,” comes from the “Organizing for America” website – Barack Obama’s election website, now turned over to supporters. Does it get any smarmier than this – memorializing the dead with an election t-shirt? See video and hear all the details below.

Obama Slogan - Tucson Memorial T-Shirt

From Rush:

One thing on the pep rally-disguised-as-a-memorial on Wednesday night.  I happened to, as I have been told, anger a lot of people yesterday by saying that the president delayed the memorial while waiting for the polling data to come in and the T-shirts to get printed.

Well, guess what?  I was right on both counts.  The polling data shows, as you know, that the American people do not associate conservative rhetoric with what happened out in Arizona.  In fact, there’s a Quinnipiac poll out that shows a majority of America don’t think that; but that 54% of Americans think that the worst of the political rhetoric comes from the left, comes from Democrats.  The second thing was they had to wait to get the T-shirts printed.  And that’s true.  Not only that, they had to wait to get a new logo for the T-shirts.  It was a pep rally.

“Together We Thrive” is about “revolution” and “diversity,” (racism), according to John Berry IV blogging at Organizing for America on February 11, 2008: (snippets)

What I see in Obama is a chance for a revolution. A chance for every group to participate and be heard; A chance to live the American dream that has been denied to so many…In a previous career, I was the global leader of Diversity for a global fortune 500 corporation, I have studied the affects of diverse groups working together and the results can not be denied. Together we Thrive!!!!!!!!!!!

  • A disgusting sight to see t-shirts from the “idiot in chief” at a memorial.

  • The first memorial I know of that gave out commemorative T-shirts. Tacky doesn’t even begin to denounce it.

  • Randy and findalis: It seems the connection to Organizing for America cannot be discounted, although the media is trying.

    If Republicans had been murdered (and maybe some were) in that parking lot, I wonder how they would have felt about that service? Actually, I know how many would have felt.

  • We have truly gone down that rabbit hole. Don’t know if you’re a fan of the Matrix movies, but I feel like I took the red pill, while many of my friends and family members took the blue pill and are just going along, humming to themselves, all enraptured over the Won and his ‘magnificent speech.’ They haven’t a clue, at all, of what is really going on. I could share this story with them, and they simply would not believe it. It leaves me speechless sometimes.

  • I saw someone in a thread somewhere today refer to the whole spectacle as a “funerally”. That sounds about right.
    I heard the Rush bit at Weasel Zippers yesterday, but I thank you for providing the transcript. It’s hard to follow audio with screaming kids at home so I much prefer to read it when I can.
