I’m inclined to doubt that’s exactly what Rush had in mind, but clearly we have reached the point where it is considered inflammatory and defamatory to point out the obvious: that buggering little boys is a homosexual act. Water is wet. The sun is bright. There, now I’ve said it.

I argue this issue every chance I get. I am disgusted with all the Libertarian types that simply cannot comprehend that there is something mentally wrong with males who do not want females. Pedophilia is just an alternative fetish to someone with this disorder.

Many of the libertarians use the tu quoque argument that "Heterosexuals do it too!" Oblivious to the fact that 2% of the population is accounting for the vast bulk of male child buggery. They simply overlook and refuse to consider every bit of evidence that doesn't conform to what they wish to believe.

I can't say that I blame Rush for pulling his punches where the gays are concerned. I've worked in the entertainment and financial worlds in New York and Los Angeles, so I have a sense of the way members of what I'd broadly define “the elite” react where certain issues are concerned. In my experience, while it's not exactly “acceptable” to be against abortion, individuals who are pro-life will be tolerated without being accused (personally) of being misogynistic; in contrast, any opposition to, say, gay marriage is cited as evidence of “hate” by that person. Individuals who come out against gay marriage and go on the record — by making donations to Proposition 8, for example — will pay a price for doing so. For example, I believe that, in the age of Google, many who donated to Proposition 8 will get turned down for jobs they apply for(although they'll never know the real reason they didn't get the job). As for public figures who come out against the gays...I do believe they will be brought down.

If I were Rush Limbaugh, I'd keep my mouth shut about the gays, while trying to get the truth out about everything else. If Rush does summon the courage to come out against the gays, I predict he'll end up in prison or murdered within five years. (And, no, I'm not kidding.)

Rush has spoken out against court decisions overturning anti-gay marriage laws and he's outspokenly against political correctness in all forms and he's outspokenly against the government-controlled schools where acceptance of anal sex is indoctrinated.

I think he is like Reagan -- someone who doesn't particularly hate homosexuals and is inclined to live and let live.

This is too easy, so hear it is, it was said in early reports that they were pimping the young boys out to the big football donors......For some reason after the second of third day this part of the story disappeared. My guess is it’s true, and that some of the men buying sex with young boys are big time pols, business men and newsmen.

It’s pretty much a given that gays control the entertainment industry lock, stock and barrel.

Entertainers know they will be ‘blacklisted’ if they go against the gay agenda, which in essence means, supporting any conservative politician, or refusing to “pile on” when somebody says something against Sarah Palin. It’s like that old saying, “To get along, you go along.”

Mmm.. How about the fact that most of Sandusky’s child victims were reporedly black kids? Inner-city “throwaway” black kids. I guess it was just a little easier for Sandusky’s enablers to look the other way. Throw in the oppressive political correctness of the Penn State campus and the hounddog homosexual mafia and you have the recipe for the current scandal.

I don’t know why Rush would fear addressing any of this, but I have noticed over the decades that Rush generally steers way clear of issues concerning sodomy, pedophilia, homosexuality, beastiality, lesbianism, necrophilia, and all that gay stuff.

He barely touches it.

He’s a coward, like most of the other so-called conservatives.

Now our country is basically being ruled by the pro-sodomy and pederasty elites on all fronts. Thanks to those who should have spoken up but didn’t.

Rush backed down early on as did ALL conservative talkng bobbleheads regarding the birther issue, and I don’t mean being pro or anti, I mean even discussing the merits of the case. I lost a lot of respect for all of them after that.

Rush is career dependenant on radio stations carrying his show.

Unless he went internet.

If he got too on the outs with either gays in media or those cowtowing to gays...

Another thing is what happened to Gricar, the missing D.A. who was investigating. His career is surely ended...

Rush said he wasn’t surprised people didn’t report it to the police, out of fear.

That would include anyone inside the program who would’ve tried to stop this in its tracks, not only Rush commenting on it...

And yes, it is tied in with the overpowering importance of big time sports, too.

It’s fascinating to note that Sandusky was in his fifties, retired, and though famously successful, was not deluged with offers to go elsewhere.

Apparently people knew, and not just in State College PA...

Your premise is wrong and so is your conclusion. You also don’t understand what these guys do for a living. Their job is to attract and keep an audience and keep their radio station affiliates happy.

There is just very little audience interest in these issues even among an audience that agrees with you on these issues. This is especially true if the host has little interest in an issue. Again, they may agree with you on the issue, but they won’t be interesting talking about it if it is not among their interests.

The idea that folks who don’t share your hot buttons must have no balls is simply a ridiculous exercise in naval gazing on your part.

I think most people are like that. If you want to live a very dangerous, spiritually and physically, lifestyle, even after you have been warned of the risks, have at it. the problem is that it's almost a criminal act today to not actively support special rights for people suffering from SSAD. Tolerances is not enough, you must accept and even endorse that lifestyle as just another normal expression of love, family, whatever... its insidious.

Read "The Franklin Coverup", or "Why Johnny Can't Come Home".

It IS right in front of you...Cops, Judges, Politicians, Wealthy "elite" occultists, Univerisity Deans, DECADES OF COVERUP. Must be a pretty powerful network to intimidate someone like Limbaugh.

What I thought he meant was that Sandusky was treated with kid gloves (no pun intended) for so many years because those in power were afraid of being portrayed as anti-gay if they went after him.

How about the fact that most of Sandusky’s child victims were reportedly black kids?

"Reportedly" = a rumor on FR, which appears to be false.

"Sandusky engaged in what experts in child predators call “grooming” behavior, law enforcement officials asserted this month, making his first approach when children were 8-12 years old. He tended to choose white boys from homes where there was no father or some difficulty in the family, investigators said, and he drew them in with trips to games and expensive gifts such as computers." - link

I still haven't heard any plausible explanation that would cause Rush to say, "I don't have the guts to bring it up".

I'm thinking there may be some real big shots rumored to be involved. The kind of people you don't just trash without solid evidence.

I'm not talking about fear for personal safety, but more about liability consequences.

Rush has been AWOL on the rabid homosexual agenda since at least 1990. He’s dead silent about it.

Yes, someone got to him around then.

Pre 1990 he was doing homosexual updates, to "Back in the Saddle, Again" bumper tune.

Then he did a TV show, substituting for Pat Sajek; audience occupied by gays. He had to remove the audience to complete the show.

So much for free speech.

Rush has not talked about it since.

Someone got to him.

He still lampoons Barney Frank with “Banking Queen” and “Lollipop” and has a spoof of Frank on his regular rotation of commericals for the online audience.

All of these are attacks on Frank’s gay lifestyle as well as his politics.

Rush is a big picture kind of person. He doesn’t discuss so much the individual brushstrokes. Gay issues are but a brushstroke on the larger picture of liberalism.

Perhaps it may have to do with the Second Mile Charity that Sandusky founded to “help” young men that he they preyed on, and the many, many highly connected people who became associated and involved with it...who that Charity contributed to, etc., etc.

There is a lot of questions about (similarly to the Penn State Football program and admin) who knew what and when and if they covered it up.

Indeed, well stated. And in his big picture, he is always tying in the political correctness of the gay lobby, the feminist movement and the race pimp industry, and how it effects the whole dynamic in the country. To him, that is the most important part of those movements and the most interesting part to talk about.

We have an entire religious broadcast industry that focuses almost exclusively on the social political issues when they talk politics. Thank God not everyone stresses the same things all the time.

Agreed.

You know, there was a wrestling promoter many many years ago, down south (and not Vince McMahon or Ted Turner), I think his name was Jim Barnett or something.

Story was, him, and Rock Hudson (who was a close friend of his), would plow booze and drugs into some of the University of Kentucky college football players, and then have sex with/rape and blackmail them.

This was way back in probably the 60's, during the National Wrestling Alliance territory days. There was a few stories, that have popped up, of other men being involved in taking advantage of those kids.

Its considered wrestling gossip, but its been told by so many different folks who knew people there and were around in that area, that I think its pretty likely, especially in light of what happened with that promoter later on.

Look it up, I think it eventually wound up in a few books, I'm wondering if this isn't the same thing happening all over again, but with younger children and a few different details.

But I’m not sure. Rush spoke without so much as a clue to those outside his skull.

That is exactly what the book, "The Franklin Coverup" up is about.

Folks should consider the fact that some politicians and ruling elite types aren't evil in word and deed as a character flaw, they are that way because they are practicing satanists. You do not need to believe in that stuff, just know that some of them DO.

It's right in front of you. It's BLACKMAIL. Rush has been blackmailed out of going the extra distance and leading this nation out of the dungheap. Let me tell you what happened to me when I attended the FReeper Inaugual Ball in 2000.

So, people ask him why he doesn't run for political office, he's being BLACKMAILED.

My suspicions are that Paterno was being BLACKMAILED too, what other reasons did he have to grant Sandusky access to everything on the campus, Second Mile and all the young boys Sandusky could eat and destroy. All taking place at an idyllic place they all call Happy Valley; Amazing!

It’s not just Europe. In Hawaii the age of consent was 14 until 2001.

The democrat legislature voted to override democrat Governor Cayetano’s veto of a bill that would have raised the age of consent from 14 to 16.

Cayetano became the first Hawaiian governor since Hawaii statehood to suffer a veto override.

I haven’t heard him in a few years, but listened regularly and often for many, many years. Unless he’s totally changed, he always avoided the entire homosexual agenda topic A-Z except for a few comic comments which became increasingly rare.

You say he was “talking about it”. What is “it”? Has even mentioned the word homosexual? Or does he still say “gay”? Did he say the rapes were homosexual rapes?

Unless someone can prove me wrong, I still assert that Rush either avoids totally, or treads very very lightly on the entire homosexual agenda topic. The fact that our country is now being ruled by an elite that favors and covers for homosexual sodomy and pederasty is ignored by almost all “conservative” talkpeople. And politicians.

They’re cowards or complicit.

I’ve run or helped run the Homosexual agenda ping list for almost 10 years on FR and I know what the agenda is doing to the country. They can’t be that ignorant that they just don’t know what I know.

Respectfully I disagree. I totally disagree that the social issues are MORE conservative and the non social issues are MORE Republican per se. This comes and goes with the times to a degree, but in the season of the tea party - the key conservative movement of the moment - the priority issues are not the social issues. In the season of the culture war, the reverse was true.

One last try :)

The subjects he deals with are (how’s this?) more traditional Republican subjects of good government, tough on crime, low taxes, etc.

He treats them from a conservative point of view.

The social issues are what revitalized the conservative movement in the post-Carter era, and those are specifically conservative issues.

I compare it to a businessman being elected to office. He’s still a politician, but he’s bringing a business point of view to politics.

This doesn’t mean the Republican issues aren’t also conservative ones—they are, and formed the foundation for the conservative Republican revival under Reagan.

But Limbaugh tackles those issues which have been traditionally Republican ones, from the point of view of a conservative who’s moved into the party. (Note he has had ‘trial separations’ from the Republican party, never from the conservative movement.)

If that doesn’t clear it up, well, we’ll have to agree to disagree. Take care.
