Rush To Judgment




You know, I was just about to go to bed.  I was feeling really good.

And then this asshole makes the news again.

For those that don't know, I've had a longtime axe to grind with Rush Limbaugh.  I think he's a liar.  I think he's racist.  I think he's chauvanist.  I don't normally say this, because I realize what a terrible statement this is, but I want his heart to pop like a zit so I don't have to share a planet with him anymore.  (And I'm not worried about sharing the Afterlife with him.  I'll be in Heaven with my angels chugging tea and playing Uno while he's living out lifetimes to burn off his karma.)

My dad had tried to get me hooked on him, saying he's outspoken and unafraid.  I watched a few episodes, and then the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings happened.  Limbaugh, on his TV show, showed footage of Hill testifying while Limbaugh was superimposed in the lower corner singing, "My hands explored you, my hands carressed you."  From that moment on, I became an unrepentant hater of that dickhead, including how he tries to spin his own past (he claims he got canned from an overnight radio host gig because he was espousing opinions counter to what the station wanted.  Bullshit.  They fired his ass because he actually pulled in a zero rating on overnights).  I don't care if hate is not nice and unChristian.  Some things, hate is the ONLY rational response.  I will NOT apologize for hating Rush Limbaugh.

So, you know, those of you who think I'm biased against conservatives...well, fuck y'all.  U mad?  U goddamn right I mad.

What's Limbaugh in the news for?  Two things.  First, there's this.  Before you listen, you might want to take a pull of Southern Comfort.  It won't make you feel any better, but you'll be too blitzed to move and do something stupid.



LJ seems to be having trouble with the embedded audio. So in case it doesn't come up, here's the relevant portion -- Limbaugh said, “The triple double Oreo. You wait -- it isn’t going to be long until it’s called the Or-bam-eo or something like that. Well, it’s a biracial cookie here.”

There is no way...there is NO FUCKING WAY he doesn't know Oreo is a racist term, and his stream of consciousness sputtering while he tries to make his "joke" makes me want to slap him.  I keep hearing his a satirist.  Of what, exactly?!?

The other thing is that Limbaugh is not giving up on his birther conspiracy theory.  He is now trying to dig into Obama's past by looking for ex-classmates, ex-girlfriends, and so on.

Limbaugh should drop dead.  He is an embarrassment to anyone who calls themselves American.  He doesn't stand for a political point of view.  He stands for hatred.  For intolerance.  In other words, he is the embodiment of the exact opposite of what America is supposed to be about.

Save yourselves from this corrupt world....

I'm still trying to figure out how he is still on the air. I mean, seriously, how can anybody with a clean conscience defend him and his bullshit? He doesn't tell it like it is at all.

It reminds me of the difference between the legendary Lenny Bruce and Andrew "Dice" Clay. Both worked with offensive material that pushed the audience's hot buttons. But Bruce did it to force people to confront what made them uncomfortable, to face their prejudices, to challenge them to become better people. Dice simply reinforced his audience's biases and stupidity, telling them there was nothing wrong with being gutter trash.

I point this out because, even after his death, Bruce is playing better venues than Dice. Sometimes, karma works out.
