Good answer- We were going for Donald John Trump, but this is acceptable
We would have also accepted Lee Atwater

He influenced well-educated wealthy folks too. They're no different when it comes to bigotry against people of color.

i agree. He and his compatriots went after others as well...gays, single mothers, people who questioned/pushed back...

There have been rumors for years that Limbaugh was an extremely closeted self hating homosexual, and that was the basis of his vitriolic homophobia, and probably his misogyny as well.

It’s interesting... Rush had FOUR marriages, but never had any children...

I wouldn't doubt it.

Remember the tales of J Edgar Hoover??

Unlikely. You can't bury ideas. Once they're out there, they're out there. That's one reason why I don't like people being happy with this man's death. The man may be gone, but people who think like him are still there.

Are you kidding? People like Rush existed long before Rush was born. He was no different, other than being born in a different era, pushing the same bs, racist ideology.

That this thred with this title is still up is flat out disgusting and wrong. I would say the same if Limbaugh's name was replaced with Ruth Ginsberg or John Lewis or Joe Biden (regardless of the damage that he has done to America)

You can't name damage if your life depended on it.

And didn't your golden calf worshippers have a scheduled re-storming of the Capitol for today? How'd that work out for ya, snowflake ?

You are a full fledged hypocrite! And, btw, Ruth and John did so much for America, but you and those like you are blind to it. Rush was and will always be a complete racist bigot asshole.

It would be interesting to read about Rush's upbringing...Pretty sure it would be disturbing.

He, essentially was a bully w/ a bully pulpit.

I bet there was some heavy parental abuse and other dark stuff there.

These kinds don't emerge out of nowhere.

I'm OK with it.

Chiming in to remind myself and everyone else that Rush Limbaugh is dead and can no longer harm the public discourse with his bile. Good riddance.

Anyone still clutching their pearls as they fan their faces and lecture the thread about decorum should go listen to this podcast. It's a two parter. Maybe three.

ALso, congratulations, Rush Limbaugh on one month of sobriety.

Yeah, I know. He was also a good friend of George Brett (hopefully you know who he is).

But just because he was a fan, doesn't make him a good guy. lol

Well here's only a tid bit of what the asshole has said and done over the years.





  • He began airing “Barack, the Magic Negro,” a racist parody song about then-Sen. Barack Obama’s popularity with many white voters, in 2007.
  • In John K. Wilson's book, The Most Dangerous Man in America: Rush Limbaugh's Assault on Reason, the host was quoted as saying this homophobic statement: "When a gay person turns his back on you, it is anything but an insult; it's an invitation."

In his "Undeniable Truths," written as part of an article for the Sacramento Union in 1988, Limbaugh wrote, "Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women access to the mainstream of society."

  • "Women should not be allowed on juries where the accused is a stud."
  • As a young broadcaster in the 1970s, Limbaugh once told a Black caller: “Take that bone out of your nose and call me back,” according to Fair.
  • Limbaugh called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” after she publicly advocated for universal contraception coverage, NPR reported in 2012.

“Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?”


“I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.”


“You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed.”


“Let the unskilled jobs that take absolutely no knowledge whatsoever to do — let stupid and unskilled Mexicans do that work.”

“A Chavez is a Chavez. We’ve Always Had Problems with Them”

....and that's why I will always celebrate his death. To quote JJ, "I believe that people should be treated EXACTLY like they treated others, and that turnabout is fair play."

And who came up the rule that's it's wrong to cheer when evil people get theirs?

AMEN!

He still is, but as a teen I had a major crush on him.
