She’s worse than Rush Limbaugh. She’s worse than Karl Rove. She’s even worse than Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. She’s worse than any person that has lived on the planet since Judas Iscariot. She’s vile and perverse and wicked and she needs to be muzzled and imprisoned and sealed in a small little cage where school children can throw rotten eggs at her for all eternity. She’s sickening and reprehensible and I wish she did not have any sort of following because all of her followers are just as perverse as she is for supporting her.
Why? Because amidst all her hate-speech she has now stooped to the absolute gutter and called a person a ‘retard’, thereby demonstrating her total depravity.
And why hasn’t the media called her on it?
He is such a simpleton. Truly. So what sort of person could ‘follow’ him and maintain any sense of self respect?
Rush Limbaugh, while repeatedly insisting he is “not alleging a conspiracy,” suggested Monday that the National Hurricane Center’s forecast models for Tropical Storm Isaac were altered to help President Barack Obama and “cast a pall” over the Republican National Convention. “I’m not alleging conspiracies here. The Hurricane Center is the regime; the Hurricane Center is the Commerce Department,” Limbaugh said on his talk show. “It’s the government. It’s Obama.” The conservative talker suggested early forecasts, which showed the storm hitting Tampa, the convention’s host city, were intended to cause Republicans to cancel the first day of their convention. Newer models showing the storm striking New Orleans, he said, are intended to link the convention to memories of Hurricane Katrina, which made landfall seven years ago this week.
I used to think the guy was just a bloated loud mouthed publicity whore. Now, I actually feel sorry for him. He has no sense. He has the same capacity for reason and intellectual discourse as Pat Robertson. He’s sad and tragic and the years of Oxy abuse have destroyed what few brain cells he used to have.
To all who are on the cusp of becoming Oxy users- be warned: Rush Limbaugh-ianity is your future.
But this guy must be.
As reported by Towleroad, a Cleveland radio personality–Dominic Dieter of WMMS 100.7’s show Rover’s Morning Glory–told the father of a possibly lesbian girl to have his daughter raped by a man until she’s straight.
The comment came after he received an e-mail from a father who had found his teenage daughter kissing another girl. Dieter decided to dispense his advice: Have one of your friends “—–” her. That’s right. According to Dieter, the father should get one of his grown adult friends to “—–” his teenage daughter because she kissed a girl.
First, the Dieter creature is a vile and totally depraved reprobate. And second, that sounds exactly like something Rush Limbaugh would say. America’s airwaves are occupied by the lowest sorts of miscreants. I’m not a talk radio fan and every month there are more reasons just to listen to NPR in the morning and some CD or other from my collection the rest of the day.
I don’t believe Fox for half a second and if some ‘witness’ is coming forward via the police report, now, nearly a month after the fact you have to wonder 1) why it took so long for the inept cops to mention it and 2) which racist organization has paid him (and the police) for his ‘testimony’ because at this point there’s no cause to believe it’s legitimate.
A witness we haven’t heard from before paints a much different picture than we’ve seen so far of what happened the night 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed. The night of that shooting, police say there was a witness who saw it all.
“The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: ‘help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911,” he said. Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red. The witness only wanted to be identified as “John,” and didn’t not want to be shown on camera. His statements to police were instrumental, because police backed up Zimmerman’s claims, saying those screams on the 911 call are those of Zimmerman. “When I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point,” John said.
Oh sure- the slight little fellow jumped the fat guy and was getting the best of him, forcing the poor fat guy to shoot him. Pure unadulterated nonsense. Yet Fox, and the people who live and breath by every word that comes out of the mouth of Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly and Geraldo Rivera will pounce on it and say ‘see, poor Zimmerman is the real victim’. Racists, happy to imagine a black kid being the victimizer rather than the provenly evil guy with a history of escapades of a questionable nature being a cold blooded murderer.
The Limbaugh advertising stampede is now officially an exodus. What was “only” 45 companies listed last week has expanded into a mass migration of 141 advertisers, according to an internal Premiere Radio Networks memo obtained by the Traffic Directors Guild of America. The memo lists 96 national companies that “specifically asked” not to have their ads play during the Rush Limbaugh Show—91 of them new additions to the list.
The companies also asked that their ads not play on shows hosted by other right-wing shock jocks, including Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Michael Savage,ThinkProgress reports. Among those in the advertising stampede:
- American Express
- US Army
- US Postal Service
And the list goes on.
When Limbaugh has 0 advertisers except for Westboro Baptist, the North American Taliban Society, and the Harold Camping Ministry Center, then we’ll know that American business has some sense.

Rush Limbaugh - Caricature (Photo credit: DonkeyHotey)
Rush Limbaugh’s recent meltdown – his three-day sex-crazed rant/attack against Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, whose congressional testimony made no mention of her own sex life – has a rich and strange collection of backstories to it, none of which include the sort of follow-on this story has had, complete with pseudo-apologies and the subsequent, ongoing loss of sponsors, which might even conceivably damage or imperil his career. Of those backstories, his own shady past as a pill-popping sex tourist is only the most lurid, not the most instructive. That only goes to underscore what’s already self-evident: that Limbaugh’s diatribes are heavily implicated in what psychologists call “projection” and the rest of know as “the pot calling the kettle black”.
Much more instructive, to get things headed in a more fruitful direction, is Limbaugh’s long history of similar sorts of vindictive, name-calling attacks. Media Matters has provided several illustrative lists, such as “Rush Limbaugh’s Decades Of Sexism And Misogyny“, “The 20 Worst Racial Attacks Limbaugh’s Advertisers Have Sponsored“, “Ten Of Limbaugh’s Worst Advertiser-Sponsored Attacks On The Poor” , “Limbaugh’s Advertisers Sponsored These Ten Attacks On Unions” – and a more all-purpose list – “15 Of The Worst Comments Limbaugh’s Advertisers Have Sponsored Since 2004“. These collections served to illustrate how continually Limbaugh resorts to similarly themed name-calling, thus reinforcing the point Media Matters made early on, that Limbaugh hadn’t just used a couple of “poorly chosen words” to describe Fluke, he had engaged in three days of prolonged haranguing including 46 separate attacks.
What’s more, they were all based on a lie, since Fluke never said anything about her own sex life. Fluke is a past president of Georgetown Law Students for Reproductive Justice, and her testimony reflected that role – it was not about her, personally, but about the experience of other law students, individually and collectively, and about the broad impact of the denial of reproductive health care, not just with respect to preventing unwanted pregnancy. In fact, Fluke specifically cited other health impacts, such as cancer prevention.
Surprising in all this is the fact that he still has sponsors. But that’s easily explained- he has followers and those followers buy what he sells. Indicating only one thing- they are as immoral as he is.
Here, it’s reported that Rush (unsurprisingly) said something misogynistic:
Rush is down at least 36 advertisers, and radio insiders think they’re not coming back, so it’s audience preservation time for him. Since Sandra Fluke is a radioactive topic, he found another woman, Traci McMillan, whose book on the politics and economics of food inspired Rush to say:
What is it with all of these young single white women, overeducated—doesn’t mean intelligent.
My guess is that Mitt Romney wouldn’t have phrased it quite that way, Rick Santorum thought it was entertaining, and Newt Gingrich would call the act of cutting and pasting Rush’s words from yesterday’s transcript another example of how coastal elites are ruining this country.
There is one piece of good news for Rush: Ashley Madison offered to buy his canceled ad inventory. Ashley Madison is like OK Cupid for married people who want to cheat. Going from Geico, Citrix and Quicken to an adultery hook-up site in less than a week tells you all you need to know about the Rush’s near future on the radio.
It also tells you all you need to know about Limbaugh’s audience.
After all, if he can criticize a law student for contraceptive use, he’s liable to the same critique- so we need to know: are insurance dollars going to pay for his Viagra?
If Rush Limbaugh doesn’t want to absorb some of the cost of female contraception as a health insurance consumer, others are wondering: Why should we pay for Limbaugh’s Viagra? “We know” Limbaugh “has used Viagra, which is covered by medical insurance plans,” Dr. Nancy Snyderman points out on MSNBC.Limbaugh was detained in 2006 by Customs agents for a mislabeled bottle of the little blue pills crossing the border from the Dominican Republic. Limbaugh said at the time that they were for his personal use, even though a prescription for them was made out to his physician to “protect” his privacy, “given the potential embarrassing nature of Viagra,” according to a note from Limbaugh obtained by the Smoking Gun.
Snyderman also notes that Limbaugh has been married four times, and has no children, so “I assume he has used some form of contraception.”
Well not necessarily. He could just be infertile along with being impotent….
Why? Because anyone who attempts to drop the label ‘Prophet’ on a person like Rush Limbaugh is either as ignorant as a lump of dirt or a deceiver.
When the prophetic voice mutes itself the stones will clatter and shake. The sound is cacophonic and confusing, but the core of truth the prophets refuse to speak will throb its way out on the thudding stones. Rush Limbaugh proves it all.
First, who says prophetic voices are muted? Maybe they’re muted at the place where Henry panders to the mega-church ‘serve me, God’ crowd but in the rest of Christianity prophetic voices are alive and well.
Second, Rush Limbaugh isn’t a prophetic voice crying out to the world- he is a self serving narcotic addict who cares only to stir controversy and appeal to the far right wing of pseudo-Christianity.
Henry’s essay is an example of the worst sort of false-theology parading itself as legitimate. He’s either incompetent as an exegete of scripture or a deceiver.
Boing Boing observes
how Limbaugh looks to advertisers
Joris Evers of Netflix emailed me to say: Spotted your tweets and wanted to let you know that Netflix has not purchased and does not purchase advertising on the Rush Limbaugh show. We do buy network radio advertising and have confirmed that two Netflix spots were picked up in error as part of local news breaks during the Rush Limbaugh show. We have instructed our advertising agency to make sure that this error will not happen again.
Rush Limbaugh is to modern America what lepers were to ancient Israel. Nobody with sense wants to have anything to do with him and the only people touching him are the ones who don’t care if they catch what he’s got.
Sponsors are dumping him like an old pair of smelly, decades old sneakers and radio stations are turning him off like a supermodel is turned off by members of the SBL.
Two radio stations announced Monday that they have dropped Rush Limbaugh’s show from their stations in the wake of the talk show host’s offensive comments about law student Sandra Fluke. WBEC in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, along with KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii, both said that Limbaugh’s words — he called Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” for her advocacy of insurance coverage of birth control, along with other incendiary remarks — had crossed a line for them.
Limbaugh might want to rename his ‘network’ the ‘Excessively Idiotic Buffoon’ network because it most certainly isn’t excellence in anything.
The AP has the story-
Another advertiser is dropping Rush Limbaugh, the ninth company to do so since the conservative talk show host’s derogatory comments about a Georgetown law student. Tax Resolution Services Co. and AOL Inc. both said Monday that they will suspend advertising on Limbaugh’s show. Tax Resolution Services CEO Michael Rozbruch says his firm is pulling ads for now. The company has endorsements from Limbaugh and other conservative broadcasters on its website.
Soon the only groups supporting Limbaugh will be Westboro Baptist Church and Al Qaeda.
AOL is the eighth advertiser to drop Rush Limbaugh’s radio show in reaction to his derogatory comments about a law student. AOL Inc. said Monday that “one of our core values is that we act with integrity. We have monitored the unfolding events and have determined that Mr. Limbaugh’s comments are not in line with our values.”
Limbaugh’s comments aren’t in line with any civilized person’s values. His comments are in line with the values of the Taliban.
AOL spokeswoman Caroline Campbell said advertising on Limbaugh’s show was “not a significant investment for us.” She declined to say which products AOL advertised on the show, or whether its ad purchases were recent. AOL is an Internet portal and runs local news websites, the TechCrunch blog, and the Huffington Post.
Patricia Heaton apparently agrees with Rush Limbaugh when it comes to Georgetown student and birth control advocate Sandra Fluke. The Everybody Loves Raymondactress tweeted a series of attacks aimed at Fluke last week, then deleted her Twitter account, Mediabistro reports. Some of the highlights, as preserved for posterity by Crooks & Liars, Angry Black Lady, and Fanity …
Go here to see the grotesque insults. Hopefully she will lose her job too (hoping that Limbaugh does).
But he’s the worst human being with a radio show and people who are moronic enough to follow him, hang on his every narcotic drenched word, and pant after him like dogs in search of another dog in heat, are enablers of his evil.
So decent people everywhere applaud Sandra Fluke.
“I thank the thousands of women and men, including members of Congress, Georgetown University students and faculty, and total strangers of all political stripes across the country who have offered kind words and support following recent egregious personal attacks. “We are fortunate to live in a democracy where everyone is entitled to their own opinions regarding legitimate policy differences. Unfortunately, numerous commentators have gone far beyond the acceptable bounds of civil discourse. “No woman deserves to be disrespected in this manner. This language is an attack on all women, and has been used throughout history to silence our voices. “The millions of American women who have and will continue to speak out in support of women’s health care and access to contraception prove that we will not be silenced.”
No one who approves of Limbaugh’s contemptible idiocy should for a moment or the fragment of a moment consider themselves Christian. Christians don’t act like Rush Limbaugh and they certainly don’t believe what he believes. Jesus, yes. Limbaugh, not ever. Christians who listen to Limbaugh’s show are like Christians who check their horoscopes before they make decisions: pretend Christians who think they believe in God but who really just believe in their own convenience.
He whined last night about being outraged that the ‘elite media’ would start a Presidential debate with a question about his marital skankiness. Meanwhile, back in the 90’s, he spent all his time talking about Clinton’s marital doings.
What a hypocrite. He’s Rush Limbaugh with more hair – pure hypocrite.
Not in some 3rd world backwater, but here in the United States:
First she got a ticket, then she was arrested, and as a sheriff’s deputy drove her to prison, she claims she was subjected to Rush Limbaugh’s “derogatory comments about black people” on the radio. All this and more prompted a Texas woman to sue the deputy and the county for a laundry list of items, including false imprisonment, assault and battery, defamation, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, the Houston Chronicle reports.
After Bridgett Nickerson Boyd’s car started smoking on Oct. 4, 2010, she pulled over to the shoulder. Deputy Mark Goad pulled up behind her; she thought he planned to help her—instead, he gave her a ticket for driving on the shoulder. According to the suit, he arrested her after she protested the ticket. When her heart started racing, she was taken to the hospital, but Goad was waiting when she got out—as was Limbaugh, she says. All charges have now been dropped, but Boyd is suing over her treatment.
I hope she wins. Anyone in custody should never be forced, by merely being in custody, to have to listen to the Oxycontin Addict’s Poster Boy.
They should allow bullfighting in the United States. Only instead of bulls they use Rush Limbaugh. – Rainn Wilson
