Aer you farking kidding me....throw this asshat down the well

And hold him liable for inciting a riot when/if it happens.
 
2008-04-24 02:38:36 PM  
FTA: Limbaugh said electing Democrats will hurt America's security and economy.


Yeah, they'd just undo all that peace, prosperity, and security nearly eight years of Republican rule have brought us.
 
2008-04-24 02:39:25 PM  
Beautiful. Inciting a riot. We know you hate the black man, Rush, but c'mon.
 
2008-04-24 02:42:24 PM  
The last time we got lied into a senseless unwinnable war, the riots occurred at the guilty party's convention. That is as it should be.
 
2008-04-24 02:43:12 PM  
This is what you should expect from rabble-rousing demagogue mullahs.

Predicting != "calling for."

/Don't like Limbaugh, but you can find plenty to criticize without making stuff up.
 
2008-04-24 02:53:48 PM  
Really though with Operation Chaos and everything that has spewed from his mouth since, how has he not been indicted?!
 
2008-04-24 02:53:57 PM  
No direct incitement in the article. Anyone have quotes in context?

stargazer101: Really though with Operation Chaos and everything that has spewed from his mouth since, how has he not been indicted?!

I heard about the Operation Chaos BS and decided to spend the afternoon listening to Limbaugh and Hannity. I was dying to hear what kind of spin any right-wing talker could be spewing. Eight years of Republican rule, country in the shiatter -- what could they possibly be talking about?

farking lapel pins. And blatant, outright lies, with manufactured outrage.

Who listens to those assholes and nods their heads in agreement? I am not talking about conservatives, because I know plenty of conservatives who are furious with what has happened to our country. Who is it who is so incapable of forming an opinion that they have to turn to these tools to know what to say at the water cooler?

/rant off

Headline on the page is "Screw the world! Riot in Denver!"

"Riots in Denver at the Democrat convention would see to it we don't elect Democrats -- and that's the best damn thing could happen for this country as far as anything I can think:"

Zat enough context for y'all?

(suddenly I know where Gary and all the other "independant libertarians" have been getting their "mark my words there WILL be riots in Denver" schtick from!)

Who the fark would envy Rush? He's a fatassed drug addict with a perma-limp cock. All the money in the world can't help him with that.

Nabb1: Predicting != "calling for."

Wrong. "Screw the world! Riot in Denver!" isn't a prediction. It's a directive.
 
2008-04-24 03:06:58 PM  
How about instead, just for a change, we rally behind the new President, whoever that happens to be, before the entire country goes down the shiatter?
 
2008-04-24 03:07:26 PM  
"Screw the world!" is pretty much the mindset of the dittoheads. "Screw the world! I don't want to pay taxes! I'm a greedy fark!"

flucto: How about instead, just for a change, we rally behind the new President, whoever that happens to be, before the entire country goes down the shiatter?

How about we shove lima beans up our noses and make moose calls?

We're already in the shiatter, BTW.

Motion carries.

While I've certainly seen better, we have a whole farking lot of potential downside left. Riots in Denver would be one way to preview that.

Well, I read through the transcript you posted - twice - and I don't see where he actually told anyone to riot. I mean, he predicts some rioting. He might even want to see it if it makes the Democrats look bad, but I don't see him telling anyone to do it. If you feel like you need to believe that he is urging people to riot, go ahead, though.

what does it matter if the people support the president after the election?

it's not like we get to vote on their decisions, and they know it.

kingMountain: what does it matter if the people support the president after the election?

It's only an opinion but I it seems to me that we've devolved into fighting for the sake of fighting and we're getting nowhere. There's not that much difference between the "two" parties, they're all dicks.

Tough talk from a guy who's going deaf from Oxycontin and gets his rocks off diddling little Dominican boys.

Silly Rabbit! Everyone knows moose calls are easier to make when you shove the lima beans up your arse!

Riots at the DNC...Come on...it's been done...Come up with something original.

i think if someone repeated rush limbaugh in front of me, at the water cooler or not, i would put my foot in their genitals and inform them i'd rather they not breed.

I wonder how long it will take for Coulter or Malkin to "joke" about hoping for a terrorist attack on Denver during the convention in an attempt to up the ante and get some of that sweet, sweet media attention they live on?
 
2008-04-24 03:37:07 PM  
Ok, gonna hate myself for this, but, His point was that IF the DNC Super Delegates pick Mrs Clinton and Mr Obama gets the delegate and popular vote wins, there...will...be RIOTS, and he thought that would assure a Democrat party loss AT THE TOP OF THE TICKET. He f'ing HATES MicCain by the way.

Gawd, that was a waste of my time writing and 80% of your time reading, as everyone that has posted, wouldn't consider listening to him and bitterly cling to your beliefs that anyone that does is a nazi or some other virilant word.

I think I need to go wash my hands.

(that was pretty good about the "bitterly" and "cling" though, wasn't it?)

Nabb1: If you feel like you need to believe that he is urging people to riot, go ahead, though.

I guess if you ingore Rush's own headline or somehow interpret it as something other than a direction then, yes, all he does in this article is gleefully WISH for riots in Denver with the explanation that such violence would further his cause.

Not sure how or why you see that as so much better, but crow away.

I've known Rush Limbaugh is an lying asshole for quite some time. I can deal with that -- it's politics, and being a lying asshole goes with the territory, whether you're pursuing votes or ratings. But I'm simply awestruck he'd go so far as to incite a riot. And with his millions of mindless slave-monkeys devoted fans eager to do his bidding, he'll probably pull it off, too. All the while styling himself as a prime exponent of good old-fashioned conservative law and order.

Sadly, I think that riots in Denver this summer are not at all outside the realm of possiblity, even without Rush. It looks very unlikely the Democratic party will settle on a nominee before the convention -- Hillary will not drop out before then regardless of what happens, because she's Hillary, and Obama probably won't either, because he's winning. So there will likely be dirty tricks and shenanigans galore, not to mention a huge pile of protesters, even more than are usual at a party convention. And the country is already in a pissy mood this year. With Rush trying to start shiat, I think I'm going to stay way the hell far away from Colorado this August.

The possibilities of the convention rioting got me thinking - is this a closed door event, or do they broadcast it on tv? How will the rest of us not in the privileged few with tickets know what is going on inside closed doors? I fully admit I did not pay attention to the previous conventions.

Comedian Rush Limbaugh needs to take a tip from Comedian Carlos Mencia... Go steal your self some new material, this stuff is way past its "Sell By" date.

"Riot in Denver!" sounds like an imperative sentence to me.

Hey, don't let me stop you from believing what you want. I'm not saying I agree or that I want riots in Denvery myself, but I've told you what I think, and I didn't see him telling anyone to riot. I think you are reading what you want into that whole exchange.

It's not that he thinks it is going to happen. It's that he wants it to happen.

Oh Rush, always the comedian! What hilarious gems will he come up with next?



LIMBAUGH: Yeah. This is -- you're not going to believe this, but it's very simple. And the sooner you believe it, and the sooner you let this truth permeate the boundaries you have that tell you this is just simply not possible, the better you will understand Democrats in everything. You are right. They want to get us out of Iraq, but they can't wait to get us into Darfur.

CALLER: Right.

LIMBAUGH: There are two reasons. What color is the skin of the people in Darfur?

CALLER: Uh, yeah.

LIMBAUGH: It's black. And who do the Democrats really need to keep voting for them? If they lose a significant percentage of this voting bloc, they're in trouble.

CALLER: Yes. Yes. The black population.

LIMBAUGH: Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela -- who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing.

From rushlimbaugh.com

RUSH: We don't burn our cars. We don't burn down our houses. We don't kill our children. We don't do half the things the American left does. We need the American left -- and this is another great thing about Operation Chaos; nothing to do with my ego. We need as many ignorant Americans to wake up and find out exactly who the modern-day Democrat Party is as dominated by the far left in this country. We need that to be seen. Now, I am not inspiring or inciting riots. I'm dreaming. (singing to the tune of White Christmas) "I'm dreaming of riots in Denver." ... Riots in Denver at the Democrat convention would see to it we don't elect Democrats -- and that's the best damn thing could happen for this country as far as anything I can think: Don't elect Democrats!

Go ahead and hit yourself in the face harder, maybe you'll then understand I was talking about where the words "riot in Denver!" actually appear...after "screw the world," on his website. THAT, not his comments on his show. Look closer next time.

Hey, you folks should be happy. This way, if the shiat hits the fan in Denver, you can all blame Rush Limbaugh.
