Rush Limbaugh Has an Unhinged Conspiracy Theory About the Ukraine Disaster
Salon ^ | SARAH GRAY

Posted on 07/17/2014 4:59:58 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Conservative pundits are already speculating about the crash that reportedly killed 295 people

Rush Limbaugh already has a conspiracy theory about Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which crashed earlier today near the border of Ukraine and Russia. He believes that this tragedy, which reportedly killed 295 people, is a great way for the media to stop focusing on the crisis at the border.

He spouted this nonsense during his radio show today. From the show’s transcript:

“Holy cow, folks. Have you seen the news? A Malaysian Airlines flight has been shot down by a missile over Ukraine, at least according to an advisory to Ukraine’s interior ministry. The Interfax News Agency — which has nothing to do with fax machines

If Salon says so one is unhinged you can take the inverse as true, and you can always view Salon as unhinged.

Too bad Rush won’t be in tomorrow, he enjoys tweaking the liberal spoilsports.

They know this is bullsh-t - they were hoping to get Rush to mention them Friday……so it’s funny he’s not going to be there….

Every time the Lyin’ King gets caught with his pants down, something horrible happens which diverts the public from the scandal.
Horrific school shootings, explosions in gas refineries, train wrecks, etc all seem to occur right on cue.

But it could be just the fact that the Lyin’ Kings scandals are so frequent, that these events ALWAYS interrupt SOMETHING.

It has gotten so bad that you know what a “conspiracy theory” REALLY is, now?

It’s where you make your mind up FOR YOURSELF, yeah, you USE YOUR OWN GOOD JUDGEMENT.

So many people have become credulous lick-spittles that they’re outraged by the odd freak that doesn’t do samey-same and behold the glittering jewel-suit sported by the Parading King.

MH17 is an important story, sure, but don’t fool yourself —this could have been someone’s frisbee and you’d have the same coverage volume.

They want desperately to continue ignoring the train wreck that he’s making America into.

Rush is right.

If they think this about Rush, then that idiot Savage must have them going bonkers; close to what he is. Talk about a conspiracy nut.

Rush suggested they may blame the Tea Party. Salon’s all over it.

The fact of the matter is that Obama never has to answer for any scandal because he merely waits for the next Big News Event to wipe the previous scandal off the Etch-A-Sketch screen and vanish into the memory hole.

Who are they kidding? They must have dome dumb readers!

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 is a great way for the media to stop focusing on the crisis at the border.

And it will happen.

Who remembers what the media focus was before MH 370's disappearance?

It gets even better when Russia does Obozo a favor. Notice it wasn’t a flight from one of the Euro countries.

President Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. on Thursday by casually devoting less than a minute to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner, as he began an often jokey 16-minute speech about the need to expand America’s transportation infrastructure.

Rush Limbaugh has a 25+ year track record of consistent, measured political punditry.
Sarah Gray? Not so much.
Once again Salon sanctions half-wit neophytes into battle with the Big Guy.

I’m not hearing any conspiracy there. If anyone has become unhinged it’s the writer of this article - she’s lost it.

This is just like that NPR story that was run saying Rush was calling for Obama’s impeachment using a clip where he was calling for the impeachment of the IRS Commissioner, but edited out what was said before and after.

I guess they missed this comment the other day about marriage....or maybe it just went over their heads

"The government issues marriage licenses so people do not get married who shouldn't and produce offspring like Harry Reid. It didn't work in the Reid family case, but that's how it's designed."

Nitwits like Sarah only know what Media Matters mis-reports on what Rush says.

The Mendacity Class ramp-up their faux outrage while Rush plays them like a maestro...
