Rush Limbaugh Named Kids' Author of the Year
Los Angeles Times ^ | May 15, 2014 | Hector Tobar

Posted on 05/15/2014 6:43:19 PM PDT by lbryce

Rush Limbaugh, the conservative radio commentator who is a kind of a boogeyman to liberals, was honored Wednesday night with a children’s book award.

Limbaugh won the Author of the Year prize in the Children’s Choice Book Awards for his book “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans.”

In accepting the award, Limbaugh was typically combative (if somewhat more subtly than usual standards).

“I love America. I wish everybody did,” he said. “I hope everybody will. It's one of the most fascinating stories in human history ... and it's a delight and it's an opportunity to try to share that story with young people so they can grow and learn to love and appreciate the country in which they're growing up and will someday run and lead and inherit.”

Rush receiving an award as author of a book for children leaves the taste of bovine matter in the mealy-mouthed orifices of those within the MSM forced to report the event. So, when coming across any potshots they invariably take in writing about it, take it as a sing of victory for Rush and the rest of us.

It’s why Rush declined to appear on Good Morning America shortly after the book was released. He knew that they would make it about him, rather than about the book.

Look, my kid loved that book, and he hates reading. He is special Ed and he loved the horse Liberty. I agree that there were proofing errors but I didn’t know about this vote nor have my kid vote. But it was a fun book and we will get the next one. He will never learn this stuff in school - how unique the beginnings of America were. Go, Rush!

But take the ad for your tea out of the book; that’s a little classless.

Can’t wait to see the liberals reaction to Rush Limbaugh winning a non-partisan, non-political award, for an area of life which is strictly non-political.

“Combative” was the word used to describe his acceptance. These people are not only deluded, they cannot tell the truth. I listened to his acceptance speech, he was gracious and thankful, giving credit to everyone involved. If this is “combative,” the world is upside down, but I already knew that. These leftists in the media are absolute fools, and absolutely blind, but then again again what can you expect from “useful idiots?”

Exactly what was "combative" in his acceptance? Loving America?

“I love America. I wish everybody did,” he said. “I hope everybody will. It's one of the most fascinating stories in human history ... and it's a delight and it's an opportunity to try to share that story with young people so they can grow and learn to love and appreciate the country in which they're growing up and will someday run and lead and inherit.”

Rush needs to create a new flavor of drink just for Liberals.

"I love America and wish everyone else did as much as me" is what the LATimes considers "combative"? Good grief, have they become unhinged.

“Combative” to MSNBC and their minions is any statement which speaks positively of the United States and/or its founders. Listen to the acceptance again in this light and he will come at you like the D-Day Invasion. It is the lens tinting of their world view.

Already run across some ...

As decided by an open on-line vote. Pardon me while I snicker.

He urged his listeners to vote for him. His listeners aren't children so it can hardly be honest to call it a "Childrens Choice Award." The Dittohead parents voted for him. Probably never even read the book.

I think I understood it academically, but was unprepared for the full reality of the thing . . .

It’s projection.

Mooch goes to the VA and talks to them like she appreciates them so do all her people and no one ever did before.

Thanks, LAT. That was a fair article. Who won the award last
year? Did you find a snarky editor to dis that book, too?
And, let me guess.......it wasn’t Mrs Limbaugh who chose
the Rush photo you used, was it?

Rush, Congratulations. Those book are a great read. Hope more will come out especially about the Dems, KKK and JimCrow and having Rush Revere telling kids that it was the Dems who kept blacks from succeeding.

They probably didn’t watch it, they simply read about it on leftist blogs and reported it

Rush has the seasoned, and now some crumb-crunchers.

I think he should try to rope in a bunch of teens b4 they hit college:

He could Japanify an anime pilot of some of his stuff and bounce it off of an appropriate focus group after he NDA’ed them.

If Beck has his whole own channel, why can’t Rush also...?

I will say this politely, your response makes no sense. Academically, reality? I am going to sleep, this is gobleldyygook, intentionally misspelled, if there is a spelling for that word. Good night.

The Tea ad - Two if by Tea's profits are all donated to the children of fallen military members, not to Rush's own wealth.

Instead of asking you to send money to this well-known charity, he's offering to send you something in return for that donation.

Liberals are screaming bloody murder over Rush’s award.

What makes them different from Nazis? Real question.

Just like their satanic, anti-family agenda, they don’t want their anti-Americanism pointed out either.

And when someone does, THEY are the bad guy.

I suppose that instead of "they have become unhinged," a better thing to say would have been: "They seem to be taking it awfully personally. Methinks they protest too much."

I guess we can give them a bit of advice:

If you don’t want to be called anti-American Satan worshippers,
don’t act like anti-American Satan worshippers.

I have bought cases and cases of his tea. And I am intolerant of caffeine! My family likes it. But I do think he doesn’t need an ad in his children’s book. I definitely appreciate his philanthropism. He is quietly one of the most generous men. Love that about him.

Tis better to be classless in the eyes of the clueless than clueless in the eyes of those ignorant to capitalism and marketing............

You don't have to burn books to behave like fascist nazi's.........

You think that Rush would be accepted as a guest speaker to the commencement exercises at a university such as Rutgers?

Evidently Condoleezza Rice wasn't....Fascists have a history of hating blacks, conservatives and anyone who doesn't subscribe to their own hate based philosophy.......

The ovens are so passe' now that we have civilized fascists such as you who can serve the same purpose via censorship........

I too, am pretty "intolerant" to caffeine.

You are correct on Rush's quiet philanthropy and generosity.

I love that about him as well as many other things.

Blessings to you.
