  • Liberal Journalists Lash Out at Rush Limbaugh Over Hurricane

    09/09/2017 4:41:54 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 37 replies ^ | September 9, 2017 | Jeffrey Lord
    So if you are a regular Rush Limbaugh listener - as I am - you heard Rush discussing the approaching Hurricane Irma this past week. And if you were paying attention, as I was, you heard him discuss the quite obvious fact that climate change believers (or science deniers as I call them) would be using Irma - as with Hurricane Harvey and others before that - as evidence of climate change. Aka: global warming. Well, of course. There seems to be nothing that occurs on Planet Earth that these people will not attribute to climate change. A blizzard or...

    Conservative Review ^ | December 14th, 2015 | CR Wire
    Today on his radio program, Rush Limbaugh declared that Donald Trump’s attacks on Ted Cruz on Fox News Sunday sound like an attempt by Trump to cozy up to the GOP establishment. Trump said of Cruz that “you can’t walk into the Senate, and scream and call people liars, and not be able to cajole and get along with people.” Rush pointed out that screaming and calling people “stupid” or “incompetent” is exactly what Trump has been doing throughout his campaign. Listen: Listen to the audio at the link.“He needs [the establishment] on his side for the nomination,” said Rush,...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Louis Farrakhan stated We need to put the American flag down. Because weve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag in remarks before the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC on Wednesday first reported by DCs WMAL. Farrakhan said, White folks march with you because they dont want you upsetting the city, they dont give a damn about them nine. He added that when the police took suspected shooter Dylann Roof to Burger King they were saying You did a good job. Kill all them [bleep.](continued)
  • Outrage After Rush Limbaugh Says This About Race

    Liberals everywhere were outraged this week after Rush Limbaugh said a black man playing James Bond would be ridiculous. The comments were made on Tuesday in regard to leaked Sony emails that revealed that CEO Amy Paschal wanted the black actor Idris Elba to play James Bond. Rush, however, wasnt having any of it. James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was, the conservative radio show host said. But now [they are] suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black...
  • Army email advising use of 'average looking women' in photos draws fire

    The U.S. Army is drawing some unfriendly fire about an email obtained by POLITICO recommending that photos of average-looking women should be used for stories about female soldiers. The email, written by Col. Lynette Arnhart, was meant to advise Army spokespeople about how they should educate the public about the Armys integration of women into combat. In general, ugly women are perceived as competent while pretty women are perceived as having used their looks to get ahead, Arnhart wrote. There is a general tendency to select nice looking women when we select a photo to go with an article (where...
  • N.C. Vote Proves Rush Is Right on Marriage

    05/24/2012 7:01:16 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 26 replies ^ | May 24, 2012 | Maggie Gallagher
    President Obama is apparently tired of pretending he opposes gay marriage. Good. Good, because lying to the American people is always wrong, and because now the American people will have a clear choice: a president who supports gay marriage, or a president who sides with the majority of the American people, including 61 percent of North Carolinians. I'm tired of pretending, too. Conservative elites, including those at Fox News, have shamefully kowtowed to the politically correct opinion on gay marriage. Some do so reluctantly because they have been cowed into believing defeat is inevitable. Some do so because they think...
  • UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER ECONOMIST: Rush Limbaugh Is Right, Sandra Fluke Is A 'Prostitute'

    Business Insider ^ | Mar. 8, 2012, 5:29 PM | Grace Wyler
    It has been one week since Rush Limbaugh first called Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute," but the controversy shows no sign of dying down. Now University of Rochester economist and former Slate blogger Steven Landsburg has jumped to Limbaugh's defense. In a blog post, Landsburg argued that while the talk radio host's language may have been off-color, Limbaugh's logic was analytically shrewd. Fluke, Landsburg writes, "deserves only to be ridiculed, mocked, and jeered" for saying that women should have access to contraception." He adds that Limbaugh's demand that Fluke and other Georgetown students post...

    Don't Rush To Write Off Limbaugh, Analysts Say He's lost 11 advertisers since using crude language to describe a student for her views on birth control, but analysts say his huge audience should allow him to thrive. Analysts say the size of radio commentator Rush Limbaugh's audience should allow him to continue to thrive despite a loss of advertisers over his crude comments about a female student's views on birth control.

    NEW YORK (AP) - A flower company is the 7th advertiser in recent days to say it is pulling ads from conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh's radio program. ProFlowers says on its Facebook page that it has suspended advertising on Limbaugh's program because his comments about Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke "went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company."

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum labeled Rush Limbaugh "absurd" over disparaging remarks from the radio talk show host directed at a law student who testified before a House panel in support of access to contraceptives. "He's being absurd, but that's you know, an entertainer can be absurd," Santorum told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Friday. "He's in a very different business than I am."

    The Georgetown University law student who was called a slut by Rush Limbaugh for testifying on Capitol Hill about womens access to contraception condemned the conservative radio host Thursday night for remarks outside the bounds of civil discourse. Im not the first woman to be treated this way by numerous conservative media outlets, and hopefully Ill be the last, Sandra Fluke said on MSNBCs The Ed Show. This is really inappropriate. This is outside the bounds of civil discourse. Fluke described to Schultz the experience of receiving a barrage of public attacks from Limbaugh on Wednesday and Thursday. My reaction...
  • Limbaugh: Obama may reverse contraception mandate since even Muslims oppose it

    Folks, let me tell you something. Dont be surprised if the regime reverses this. Ive heard that theyre rethinking it, that Obama might be rethinking this ban that hes put in effect on the Catholic church and the schools and so forth. And it could be true. It could be true. I mean even Muslim clerics have come out against this decision. If Muslim clerics have come out against this decision, then Obama will hear that, much more than hell hear Catholics being upset about it. ~ Rush Limbaugh weighing in on the controversy surrounding the contraception mandate in the...

    SNIP...Ill reserve final judgment until I read the entire piece. But based on these excerpts which presumably reflect the thrust of the 10,000-word article what is striking is the degree of self-pity we find in Obamas advisers, which is reflected in the presidents words and attitude as well. Team Obama sounds nothing so much as overmatched and overwhelmed, unable to understand what has gone wrong, and increasingly bitter toward the nations capital and the pace and nature of politics.

    Nice catch by Andrea Nill Queens Medical Center, where Rush Limbaugh is being treated after experiencing chest pains yesterday, happens to be a crucial location in the birther mythos. A UPI article mistakenly identified that hospital, not the Kapiolani Medical Center, as the birthplace of Barack Obama. And even though the article was corrected, the no one can say where Obama was born myth has persisted.

    Rush is an Inspiration. The morning of New Years Eve 2009 and reports from Honolulu are sketchy at best. They indicate that Rush Limbaugh has been hospitalized for chest pains. For more than twenty years Rush has provided lessons from his perch in front of the Golden EIB (Excellence in Broadcasting) microphone articulating and sometimes embellishing a conservative perspective. Rush has never been shy about describing the incongruence as he found it which, articulate the difference between the political right and left. When he had a bone to pick with a liberal newsmaker, he went out of his way to...

Today I go nut picking to expose the classless, callous, cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-arse, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey poop that they are! Hallelujah! Holy crap! Wheres the Tylenol?!?! When tragedy strikes a polarizing figure on either side of the isle I sit back and observe peoples reactions.

    For some strange reason, the Daily Kos has gained the reputation in the mainstream media for somehow being composed of "reasonable progressives" in stark contrast to their Democratic Underground cousins whom even many in the MSM will admit are flat out loons. However, certain events prove that the Kossacks are every bit as crazed and full of hate as the DUers. And one such event that has proved this to be true is the reaction of the two sites to the news that Rush Limbaugh has been hospitalized in Hawaii. Of course there was a DU thread full of hate...

    President Obama is pursuing a "radical" agenda that is putting the economy and national security in peril, talk show host Rush Limbaugh told "Fox News Sunday," giving the young president failing grades across the board and standing by his sustained criticism of the administration. The conservative radio host assailed the administration for its economic stimulus package, health care reform plan and alleged uncertainty over the way forward in Afghanistan. In a wide-ranging interview, he called Obama a "child" driven by his "out-of-this-world ego." And he predicted that Obama, who built a broad-based majority over Republican candidate John McCain a year...
