Wait, I thought the immigration crisis was a distraction from the IRS scandal, which was a distraction from Benghazi, which was a distraction from death panels, which was a distraction from Obama's birth certificate... so WHERE IS THAT BIRTH CERTIFICATE, OBAMA. YOU CAN'T FOOL ME BY SHOOTING DOWN A PLANE!

You'd think Rush would be happy that he no longer has to travel to the Dominican Republic to find poor Hispanic children.

Thanks Obama!
 
2014-07-18 12:01:31 AM  
I heard Obama was getting all the kids at the border pre-accepted to Harvard, so no white kids will get in. Then he shot down the plane HIMSELF, so no one would find out.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if it turned out Rush was the guy who called MSNBC to provide an "eyewitness report" to make a Howard Stern fart joke.

"I haven't had CNN on all day," Limbaugh said. "What do you bet they have broomed everything and are covering wall-to-wall the Malaysian Airlines flight shot down by a missile?"

That's not a bad guess.  Even a stopped clock is right twice a day:

...because he thought that they'd just NOT report what the official findings were, from multiple sources, to go with a conspiracy theory?

And that's the problem with conspiracy theories. While they are sometimes oddly funny, they are ways of essentially rejecting simple truths, and instead make the world a far darker place, and the world is pretty damn dark most times, and it eats away at faith, trust, compassion, and even a belief that justice can be found. It erodes the spirit, and saps the will to do much of anything, if you fall for the "simplicity" of them. I use the quotes, because they usually require a fair amount of convoluted thinking, and while there is a LOT of history that has been in shadows, and the official story is often a bit less simple than it appears--like say how America was founded by a superior culture that swept the savages from the land that they weren't using, and these lands were so rich and green and ripe for bearing fruit that God must have deemed it a Promised Land, as opposed to say a fairly long settled land with a people that had suffered calamity that had wiped a majority of the population away, and the rich and fertile lands were that way because they'd been settled for a LONG time--the conviction of holding onto these stories is not about hope, but of crushing defeat of the spirit, and a self centered thought that only a few could have the wit to pierce the veil, and that nothing could be done to stop them. Not that I think that Rush has any thought in his head that his tale has any degree of truth, but he is selling some snakeoil and a narrative, and that narrative is killing this country. It's killing compassion. It's killing cohesion. It's killing our belief in our fellow men and women, and replacing it with distrust and fear and loathing, and while that seems useful to some, to score some points in polls, it divides the nation, and our people, and that's beyond sad, it's beyond tragic, and that self interest and snake oil huckstering is crushing us. Crushing our ability to come together, and it's working for those who want to control narrative, as opposed to tell truth to power.
 
2014-07-18 12:56:54 AM  
At this rate, had Obama been President on 9/11/2001, Limbaugh would've claimed he engineered the whole thing to distract Americans from how awful a President he is.

For fark's sake, I was just talking about his assertion that CNN had wiped everything off their front page to cover the downed plane. Anything else about a conspiracy is, like every conspiracy theory I've ever heard, just bullshiat. I wasted lifetimes on troofers, which were the first real internet conspiracy theorists, but I've also wasted lifetimes on Kennedy theorists as well IRL.

I'm sitting here thinking if there's anything that pisses me off more than a conspiracy theorist, and I can't come up with anything.  Why? Because they are smart people who fanatically research details that support a preordained conclusion. It may go back to my Catholic upbringing, since the Calvinists are clearly delusional, but that line of thinking leads to the crazy.

I used to listen to Rush Limbaugh back in the 90s.  He was quite entertaining at one point, and made politics interesting.  But sadly he's become the very fearmonger and blowhard that he used to be against, and he doesn't even realize it.

It was more of a generalized comment on his thought process, and the role of these sorts of craptastic assertions, and not an attack. Again, I doubt that Rush, and very few folks who will promote this sort of thing actually believe any of the hokum that they'll be selling this week, but it just adds to the tally of waste and human misery quotient, and that was more the point.

I collect conspiracy theories. From the Crusades to the Illuminati, to Clinton's murdering folks, Obama's faux birth certificate, the faked Moon landing, aliens and the SS, Masonic influence over elections, Jim Morrison's voodoo and Satanic murder, Elvis staying IN the building, and more. It's odd what folks will latch onto. It's not entirely surprising, since the human brain is made for creating connections between events, and tracing them back to their origins, because that's a survival trait, and being able to predict events from small details in the environment is not a bad thing. What's odd is what some folks will latch onto. The ability to piece together events from small details, and make connections is part of good journalism, and it's not a far leap to go above and beyond. To want to look past the curtain of accepted history. Especially knowing that much of history is written by the winners. And there is plenty of hinkey that has gone on, and certainly things have been covered up, and stories twisted more than a bit. But the conspiracy folks revel in the wrong. They revel in it, because now they KNOW that they're special flowers, that they're in the know, and the rest of the world are sheep, and it gives them something to feel superior about, even though it won't do them a damn bit of good. If anything, it makes them even unhappier, and latching onto doom and gloom...it ain't healthy.

2014-07-18 02:28:24 AM  
Really, though. What's happening at the southern borders is hardly a crisis. If you want to talk about bullshiat news, it's the "human wave attacks by illegals sending their children to the southern border" crap the news has been feeding us for weeks.

This Malaysian airlines thing is actually interesting news. Who did it? We don't know yet. Why did it happen? No idea yet. It's like a real life mystery waiting to be unraveled by an investigative journalist.

For once Rush Limbaugh is correct. Nothing can bring back to life the people killed, and if we get too fixated on it we will get involved in Russia Ukraine and Malaysia's problem. Meanwhile, this border is a problem that has affected us and will have unintended consequences that farkers are refusing to see ahead to.

No, no, no...Obama's real Kenyan Birth Certificate - liberated from the Benghazi consulate vault by Army Recon Seals Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Sarah Palin but lost when Obama closed the New Jersey bridges  -- was on MH370 along with the nearly 275,000,000 Romney/Ryan ballots that were secreted out of the United States on election night via Black Acorn Soroscopter and were rerouted by Hillary's lesbian atheist muslin armies that were unable to capture the three American Heroes; the plane is now currently rebadged as a party jet for Bill Clinton to fly to his Venezuelan enclave where he hunts, legitimately super-rapes and eventually devours losing "Miss America" contestants.

MH17 departed from Amsterdam, which means it held the only known cell-phone footage -- shot vertically, of course -- of Barack Obama and Joe Biden smoking hashish in Anne Frank's attic while mocking her blindness AND her aviation skills, as well as the secret LBJ memo demanding all records be purged of the heroic Vietnam service and multiple Congressional Medals of Honor of one Rusty Hudson Limbaugh III, a soldier of such fearsome countenance and astonishing bravery the Viet Cong called him "The Hell Pudding Hound of Hanoi" and demanded to surrender their nation and the very idea of Communism only to him. Limbaugh, being a reserved man not taken to bouts of self-aggrandizement, has never mentioned these records.

It's almost TOO simple.

See above. You have the same problem that I had for 50+ years until I figured it out. I thought that "secreted" was some way of making something exit secretly. Until I figured out, finally, that it was the past tense of "secrete" that they were writing about all these years.

I think he realizes it, and knows his audience is getting deeper into the crazy right with him.

/I was in Barnes and Noble with my kids last night, and found a sequel to a book we like (the sequel is called "How They Choked," the original is "How they Croaked,") and was disgusted to see it in a display surrounded by Limbaugh's doughy, punchable, lying face.

Look. I'm sorry you can't have two different things in your head at the same time, but most of us are interested in why this happened, who did it, and what the outcome will be. We are also still concerned with the warehouse filled with refugee children on our border.

I know that living far away in MN insulates me but you are correct.
