Rush Limbaugh fans: why are you a fan?

Posted by   + Show Post
The Pig of Propaganda



“Kurt Cobain was, ladies and gentleman... a worthless shred of human debris.” Rush Limbaugh the day after the lead singer of Nirvana committed suicide.

“It’s not my fault! I was telling an innocent story about a White House dog, when an unnamed staffer put Chelsea’s picture on the screen against my will!” Sack of shit Rush Limbaugh

There are literally millions of Conservanazis in this country; proud, callous, selfish, repulsive bigots in their own right, but only one stands above the rest to earn the moniker “The Pig”. There should never be any guilt or embarrassment associated with calling Rush Limbaugh a pig, for that is just what he is. Please understand that we call him a porker not because of his pinkish pallor, beady little close together eyes and turned up snout (though these factors do help in defining just which bovine to compare him with) but solely on the grounds of the nature of his rhetoric.

There is little problem with this pig doing his daily dose of Negro bashing, Gay bashing, Women bashing, Indian bashing, Liberal bashing, Environmentalist bashing, or the raw unbridled hatred he expresses three hours a day toward the Clintons, for after all, that hatred is what conservatives are most about. Neither is there much problem in him disallowing the airing of any opposition to anything he says; totalitarian fascism is also so indicative of the conservative mindset that he should not be castigated for just doing his job. But Rush goes beyond the standard fare of hate directed at the enemies of conservatives - the loathsome do-gooders and the dreaded others - by delving into a realm of sleaze and unfairness seldom witnessed outside the pages of the American Spectator. There are four categories which define Rush Limbaugh as a pig. These all concern attacking those who are unable to defend themselves.

Animals - This has been one of his mainstays from the start. From the glee he takes in telling the story of killing the mouse in his garbage can, to the joy he took when a shark devoured a sea otter in front of a group of California school children who had found it wounded, helped and released it. From the laughing satisfaction he gets from his soundtrack of farm animals being shot and slaughtered to Andy William’s Born Free, to his seething hatred of Spotted Owls, whales, and any other endangered species. From calling fellow Americans to search out beavers and kill as many as possible because they destroy trees to his never-ending dialogs of how worthless and stupid animals are. Ah, debating animals Rush, what a brave man you are.

The Homeless - This has also been one of his long running themes. Not only making crude and obnoxious fun of the homeless, but always referring to them as drug addicts, drunks and worthless lazy bums when in reality the majority of them are women, children and the mentally disturbed, whom people like Rush proudly refuse to help in any manner at all other than giving bootstrap speeches. The homeless don’t vote they are the ultimate have-nots without a voice or even a radio to hear what’s being said of them. Ah, bashing people living in cardboard boxes Rush, what a brave man you are.

Little Girls - This is perhaps the low point in this pig’s career. On his nightly television show he flashed up pictures of White House happenings and said here comes a picture of the White House dog (there was no White House dog at the time); up popped the poorest picture he could find of 13 year old Chelsea Clinton with braces glittering. He blamed it on a technical mistake. I am sure most of his dittohead viewers actually believed him. It was the height of pigginess. Ah, making sure an adolescent little girl knows you called her a dog, because you hate her parents. What a pig rolling in stink.

The Dead - This one is truly disgusting and often the thrust of his rhetoric. First it was playing part of a speech by John F. Kennedy which decries high tax rates. He played it over and over again, commenting that JFK is a Rush Limbaugh “Dittohead”, a friend of Rush Limbaugh’s who if alive today would be a conservative sitting next to and honoring Rush Limbaugh. On and on and on, JFK the enemy of liberal democrats, JFK the conservative who hates taxes and social programs. Then later the same game with Martin Luther King who he falsely claims would be against Affirmative Action. Ah, debating the dead Rush, what a brave man you are.

Though Limbaugh is a pig, deserves the name, and no one should feel even the slightest pang of guilt in calling his mother to tell her so, there is a semantic conundrum in this game of name-calling. I apologize to all swine, hogs, pigs and bovines whether domestic or foreign, young or old, in houses or homeless, with braces or without, alive or dead.

“Kurt Cobain was, ladies and gentleman... a worthless shred of human debris.” Rush Limbaugh the day after the lead singer of Nirvana committed suicide.


--------------


“Why should blacks be heard? They’re 12% of the population. Who the hell cares.” Rush Limbaugh

Years ago, Rush got mad as Hell over a column written by Lars Eric Nelson (who recently passed away) in The New York Daily News. It suggested that Rush’s book, See, I Told You So, a flag waving tome filled with generating hatred from veterans toward President Clinton, was much the same as the thousands of hate bulletins running through Dallas the days before John Kennedy was assassinated, which may have set Oswald off. It inferred that Limbaugh’s intense hatemongering may be construed as the moral ground to assassinate the President.

Rush got hot! It is important to remember that conservatives can imply, infer, accuse, insult, denigrate, annoy, aggravate, demonize, slander, libel, and lie about any liberal they please. It is just common courtesy in these dark times that liberals do not reciprocate in kind, even once, to even the slightest degree. For days Limbaugh lost his sense of humor, he couldn’t get away from the Nelson column, it was not funny, it was not fair. Poor, poor pitiful Rush.

Suddenly, in a finger snap, Limbaugh went from days of angry glum whining to joyous prancing on happy feet. What caused such a sudden change from the sad unfairly put upon victim to gleefully tripping the light fantastic? The news hit that the man responsible for the Long Island Train Massacre was Black! Hallelujah!

Why is the man being Black so important to Rush? It’s the old conservative argument that racism is a two way street, Black racism is the same, or worse, than White racism. Slavery, hangings, Jim Crow, cross burning, the Klan, the urban ghettos, minority status, oppression, discrimination and red-lining are nothing compared to the horror of Affirmative Action. Blacks are just as racist, if not more so, than Whites, which this Negro on the train proved.

So it follows when it comes to the other, oppressors are the same as the oppressed, suffering discrimination is no different than dishing it out, slave owners and slaves are equal, the NAACP is no different than the Klan, the majority is the same as the minority and suburbs and ghettos offer the same opportunities. The conservative propaganda in this regards is so repetitive and pervasive that sadly these lies also become equal to the truth.

So on Rush went, the Black racist murderer, caller after caller about the Black racist murderer. The entire show, day after day the Black racist murderer. Where are Rush and his callers when it is White murderers and White racists, and White racist murderers? Nowhere to be seen unless they can find a corrupt semantic argument to blame liberals for it. In that same week there were three White men who blasted randomly at victims killing more than that Black man did, no mention at all of any of them on the Rush Limbaugh Program.

What would I be bigoted against in the Fluke case.
Quoting AdellesMom:

The only reason that you think that he was right about Fluke is because you hold the same closed minded bigoted views as he does.

Quoting Billiejeens:

He was completely right about Fluke, Not sure about your soldier comment, he is a huge supporter of the Military, both verbally and Charity wise, something specific about the Mooch or terrorism?

Nappy headed hoes - was Don Imus.












Quoting LucyMom08:

Pretty much every time he lets an 'opinion' fly? His comments on Sandra Fluke, US soldiers, Michelle Obama, terrorism, anything really..."nappy headed hoes" comes to mind...
Quoting Billiejeens:


Like what?



Quoting LucyMom08:

Frankly, with a lot of the WTF? things that come out of his mouth, I don't think he kicked his addiction. I think he just got better at hiding it...



Quoting SandyLaxner:

The post was asking why are u a Rush fan...Then a bunch bash Rush and his fans...Why not just post"Let's bash Rush and his fans"?He goes too far sometimes,but generally,he echoes a lot of my beliefs...I think he can be really funny...He overcame an addiction to painkillers which people laugh at but I applaud anyone who overcomes an addiction...So,there are some of the reasons that I like Rush...thanks for asking.



Quoting terri.a:



Frankly, I chose not to read that far, genius.



 



Quoting glitterteaz:



can you not read the link at the bottom? she did not write this genius



Quoting terri.a:



Wow. For someone that dislikes him so much, you sure do know an awful lot about him.  Why don't you just not tune in to his broadcasts? I listen to him on occasion, and I've not heard the things you've mentioned above.  When I hear him or anyone else say something I find offensive, I will change the channel. I especially dislike Michael Moore, so I don't watch his productions.

It really did give him the treatment. It was harsh, and I paused at the first line, thinking maybe "pig of propaganda" went to far.

It was a fleeting thought.


Quoting stacymomof2:

Wow, that article gave Limbaugh the Limbaugh treatment.

He is just really obnoxious and abrasive.  Not only do I hate the things he says, but his delivery is horrendous.  He is a mysogynist, a racist, and an asshole in general (I actually saw the Chelsea Clinton broadcast...it was no "story about the Whitehouse dog" (there was no dog, just Socks the cat).  It was a big lead in, a joke, and the punchline as he gestured at the screen was Chelsea.  He is 100% lying later, when he tried to say it was some sort of mistake.  What picture was he going to show that was the punchline, then?

His show went off the air quickly...at the time he pulled that Chelsea stunt there were very few people who thought it was appropriate.  Even the conservative commentators thought it was bullshit.

That's bullshit, Carpy, they didn't get the dog until late in the second term.  The Chelsea joke was when she was 12 years old.  

32 years (February 27, 1980)
Chelsea Clinton, Age (from google)

That makes the Limbaugh thing happening in 1992.
According to the IMDb, Limbaugh's show was on from 1992-1996.  They didn't get the dog until 1997, accordin to this story from People magazine. 
"Sad news from the Clinton household: Buddy, the playful 4 1/2-year-old chocolate-brown Labrador who came to the family as a puppy in 1997 (shortly before the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke), was accidentally struck and killed by a passing car near the family's Chappaqua, N.Y., home Wednesday afternoon, a family spokesperson said Thursday. Officer Bruce Cathie of the New Castle police said the incident occurred on Route 117, a busy two-lane road. It is unclear whether Buddy was on a leash being walked or was running free when the accident took place. "We are deeply saddened by Buddy's death," the Clintons said in a ..."

Why would you defend that piece of shit over that?
ETA:
He was NOT apologetic!  It wasn't a "mix-up."  God I can't believe you of all people would be so credulous about a stupid entertainer back-tracking over beating up on a 12 year old.
Quoting Carpy:

Yes, there was a white house dog.  Clintons dog Buddy.  He was a chocolate lab, and I saw the broadcast as well, and Limbaugh was very apologetic about the mix-up.  I also saw the SNL skits that made fun of Chelsey, which was when I quit watching SNL.  There was no mix up there.

I listen. I don't like him, but I listen. Where is the fun in listening to a radio program if you agree with everything they say. Rush pisses me off. That's the point.

  I listen. I don't like him at all. I don't agree with much he has to say, but I do agree with some. I don't like the way he presents the issues, but ratings aren't going to be very high if you don't ruffle feathers.

 I also just started to listen to NPR so that I could get a different perspective.

NPR is very good.  

If it is on your local broadcast, you should try to catch "On the Media," that is a great shakedown of all the media's missteps and bs.
