Rush Limbaugh, dead at 70. Good.

Another evil person just bit it. Rush made lies common in America and gave us the right wing takeover of media lies. He used the radio waves to spread dangerous views and made lying for a living the norm. We had Trumpism because of creeps like him.

All you others say Hell Yea!! woot!

They say your life is reviewed by you and a higher being upon death...A lot of bad karma.

Rush Limbaugh probably did more harm to America than Bin Laden

Bye bye and good riddance. I hope it was as painful as the pain he inflicted on the American discourse.

If you're clutching your pearls and wondering how a liberal like me could be so cruel, then you probably assume he inflicted no pain on the American discourse, in which case, he died without pain.

Seriously though. Fuck Rush Limbaugh and everything he stands stood for.

Finally, an asshole dies for a change instead of someone cool that I actually like.

And his statements about Covid 19

Horrible horrible man, part of the rise of the new right and a person devoid of a heart. Fat and stupid and hilarious when it was found he was addicted to Oxycontin.

He lived a long full life. He was prosperous. But the life of a right winger is so full of hate and division that when they are gone, the best a lot of people can muster is shrug.

Death is not a bad a thing. It's a renewal. it clears the air. it allows for new voices to be heard and old pathetic voices to go away. He was the age of the Fox news demographic and the fate of that network.

I tweeted earlier about this asshole.

To say something about Rush Limbaugh’s death, I’ll use Bette Davis’ quote when Joan Crawford died: "You should never say bad things about the dead, only good… Rush Limbaugh is dead. Good!"
"eye don’t really care so much what people say about me because it is a reflection of who they r."

Chick Corea and Rush Limbaugh both died within 10 or so days of each other. One spread love, kindness and togetherness. And the other one spread lies, divisiveness and hate...


One answered the call, and the other one didn't.


Rest in peace Chick. sad rose rose angel

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

I dunno. Given his painkller addiction, I wonder if perhaps his tolerance made traditional pain management methods less effective for him.

Well, the air is definitely thinner.

For shits and giggles, I looked up an old Hunter S. Thompson obituary on Nixon, changed a few words and tense and edited it into something befitting Congressional Medal of Freedom Winner, Rush Limbaugh:

...

"If the right people are in charge of Rush's funeral, his casket will be launched into one of those open-sewage canals that empty into the ocean just south of New Jersey. He was a swine of a man and a jabbering dupe. Rush was so crooked that he needed servants to help him screw his pants on every morning. He was queer in the deepest way. His body should be burned in a trash bin.

These are harsh words for a man only recently canonized by President Trump -- but I have written worse things about Rush, many times, and the record will show that I kicked him repeatedly long before he got cancer and went down. I beat him like a mad dog with mange every time I got a chance, and I am proud of it. He was scum.

Rush's spirit will be with us for the rest of our lives -- whether you're me or Bill Clinton or you or Kurt Cobain or Bishop Tutu or Keith Richards or Amy Fisher or Boris Yeltsin's daughter or your fiancee's 16-year-old beer-drunk brother with his braided goatee and his whole life like a thundercloud out in front of him. This is not a generational thing. You don't even have to know who Rush Limbaugh was to be a victim of his ugly, Nazi spirit.

He has poisoned our water forever. Rush will be remembered as a classic case of a smart man shitting in his own nest. But he also shit in our nests, and that was the crime that history will burn on his memory like a brand. Rush Limbaugh helped break the heart of the American Dream."

....

I'll anxiously await all the fauz outrage, pearl clutching and crocodile tears about a mean old liberal like me being so mean and insensitive to Rush Fucking Limbaugh -- since he was such a class act --before I post some of his greatest (s)hits over the years. Including the one where he read the names of AIDS victims on air while playing "Never Love This Way Again" and laughing about it or the one where he mocked a 12 year old girl for being ugly.

My favorite Rush moment was when he was on the David Letterman show and he was “joking “ about Hillary Clinton’s looks.
Dave looks over at this massive fat slob Limbaugh and says to him “And of course you’re a perfect specimen of beauty “..,
Fat Rush sat there speechless as the audience roared with laughter at him

What a disgusting piece of garbage that he was

Which was a Reagan-era thing.

To be clear, the regulation was that radio stations were required to give equal time to an opposing point of view during commentary or an opinion show. When it was deregulated, people were free to say whatever they wanted with no one to punch back with a "yeah, but..."

Rush ran with that and ended up being an architect of what is now conservative talk radio and TV. He could be racist, exist, homophobic, and otherwise bigoted, with only outside media pointing fingers. He laughed to the bank, all while being a fat slug with an addiction, losing his hearing, and being a general piece of shit.

It also played out badly when news turned into entertainment aka InfoTainment. Fox, MSNBC and others are as guilty as the other for it. It's easy to confuse the public when the cryons on the screen are the same for a journalist's show (like Shepard Smith or Anderson Cooper) and a pundit (like Ingraham or Maddow). NEWS ALERT seems to be Fox's constant dog whistle on screen, no matther who's saying what. People start to blur the lines between news and opinion. It's probably why pumpkin never called a reporter to mouth off, but a mouthpiece like Hannity. A reporter worth their salt would fact check his ass on the spot.

Rush got big because he spoke, like the former POTUS, to white men's fears of being marginalized, slightly grieved or otherwise inconvenienced. (ie: anything that threatened white supremacy.) It's also why Fox News is the #1 cable news network. It appeals to middle America, the Joe Plumbers of the world, which is the vast majority of the population for the same reasons. You watch Fox News when fatso died, and it was like a president had idea. On MSNBC - just another day in the neighborhood.

At the end of the day he was nothing more than the Ultimate Used Car Salesman, Willing to say, do or shill for anything that shoved money into his pocket with no concerns whatsoever about hypocrisy, WHAT he was selling or who it was hurting in the process.

So, more or less, the American Dream writ large when one considers it.

For whatever reason, millions of americans thought he went on he air every day to tell everyone the truth instead of lining his pockets, which always astonished me. He guided people's opinions to the point that no one really even had one until he offered it during their afternoon drive. And I could always tell whatever it was he said that day based simply on eavesdropping conversations in my lunch room.

The way he shaped voters' opinions on things is poisonous in ways that will take decades to remedy and his death is a net positive for political discourse in this nation. I can' t think of one positive thing he offered us and am happy that he is dead.

I know that is your opinion, and I respect that...

But what about someone who mocked AIDS victims and made a joke about their deaths ? Or someone who called a 12 year old girl “ugly “ on television? Or mocked victims of Parkinson’s diseases, imitating their tremors? Or called women who wanted birth control covered by insurance “sluts” who should film themselves having sex, so taxpayers could enjoy watching it? Or who openly promoted bigotry against Black people and Latinos?

Should EVERY life be treated with respect? Or should people be treated in death the exact same way they treated others when they were alive?

And is there NO death that could be celebrated? Or put another way, is there no ones death that actually might be for the betterment of society? Mussolini? Idi Amin ? Pol Pot ? Saddam Hussein ? Stalin ? Hitler ?

just because someone does and says evil, how does it benifit us to match that evil with more evil?...

See, I disagree. Limbaugh, with his bully pulpit, had a lot of sway over American politics and culture. By placing and normalizing racism and misogyny and homophobia, you would be naive to not think that had an effect on our society. He had millions of listeners who accepted this hatred, this “us vs them” mindset. And look at all the politicians who lionized this animal, including Trump, who awarded him the highest civilian honor. (Imagine if Obama gave that same honor to Louis Farrakhan).

I believe in treating people exactly like they treated others... Some believe in turning the other cheek, and others believe if you get punched, you punch back harder

You missed my point... either you say NO deaths can be “celebrated “, or agree that SOME can...
So no, I wasn’t comparing Fat disgusting Limbaugh to Hitler or Mussolini. I simply took your argument to it’s furthest conclusion
