    Rumsfeld Speech?

    Hey there, I stumbled across this response by Keith Olbermann about a speech that Rumsfeld presented. I couldn't find Rumsfeld speech, but I did find this an interesting listen-to.

    Nope, its the one where he apparently accuses those who criticise the Bush Administration of appeasement by comparing opposition to the so-called appeasement of Hitler by Churchill. Olbermann's opinion is that he is seeking to undermine democratic descent, echoing in Olbermann's view McCarthyism-style doctrine, and exhibits fascist technique in the way he is portraying 'the enemy', not in this case terrorists but rather Liberal opposition.

    It's interesting, but more than a little melodramatic.

    Your right to free speech, to have an independant thought of your own, to question the administration = you being an appeaser, a fascist sympathizer, an enemy of the state, etc., How democratic of him! :rolleyes:

    His calling you an appeaser is free speech as well. :)


    However, he is an idiot who should be fired immediately.

    1) He can't pronounce "omniscience"

    2) I immediately tune out when people say "if only we had a Winston Churchill around today"

    I'll post again when I have the time to read Rumsfeld's original speech.
