I kind of hope that the plot of My Name Is Earl plays out for Rush. No, I don't want him to atone for all of his past transgressions. I want him to get hit by a car.

Exhibit 4,732,399 proving that conservatives are stupid and evil.

Indeed, thanks to people like Rush and his followers we are able to map a little more of the conservative brain every day.

Let me clarify.

Fair, because it conveys the view that conservatives are stupid. Balanced, because it also conveys the view that conservatives are evil.

brandent: djkutch: brandent: gfid: Can we blame Obamacare?

I'm pretty sure that's to blame.

Somehow

Obamacare MANDATES that insurance policies cover mental health issues which will lead to more people taking dangerous anti-depressant medication which leads to suicide.  It's part of the whole 'victim' culture of the left which aims to breed people to more dependent on the government. Drugging the populace into a state where they do not mind is just part of the plan.  The fact that these drugs are purported to 'help' is all the better since the growth in suicides will create a self feedback loop of everyone seeking treatment and becoming further submissive to the government.  Meanwhile the drug companies grow even richer and keep the politicians happy by being able to increase their bribes in an ever escalating cycle until we are all servants of the state.

You forgot chemtrails.

What's medical marijuana like?

You must not have been in that other thread.  Here's your chemtrails.  (or that's what made you mention it).

On the contrary, it exists precisely because there is value.  Value to him.  Value to the stations.

Yeah if you are fubar depressed and start taking anti-depressants there is a risk that you might feel "just" enough better to kill yourself.  We knew that before Obamacare.  Competent doctors know how to manage it.  It's still a problem.


Hey, remember that time you outed yourself as a troll? Good times, good times.

MrBallou: He's right in a way. If Williams was a Conservative, he would have been a greedy, hate-filled, shameless, selfish asshole who wouldn't give two shiats about anybody or anything, with no thoughts deeper than "fark you, I got mine".

Guys like Limbaugh never commit suicide, no matter how much worse they make the world by being here. They just vent their frustrations through hate-speech and take their demons out on Dominican boys.


And this is one of the things that makes Robin Williams death all the more tragic.
People wanted him around and he's gone, while this fat druggie asshole IS STILL HERE and the world would be so much better if he weren't.

saintstryfe: Lsherm: doyner: Lsherm: Some other TFer

Rush Limbaugh?

Not sure he knows how to work a computer.  The guy I'm thinking of had more of a middle eastern focus.

Actually back in the day, don't know if this is still true, he was a huge Apple geek. I wonder if today's release of a diversity report plus that pro-LGBTQ release earlier this year might change his mind on that. Personally, I hope so. A person like him DESERVES Windows 8.


I have a feeling he still thinks Microsoft has an involvement in MSNBC. He might as well go back to using an IBM Selectric.

kevinfra: In spite of his flaws and personal demons, Robin Williams made millions of people laugh and made millions of people happy - People will never say that about Rush Limbaugh.

Just a slight difference between Limbaugh and Williams' respective contributions to humanity. One a lying, hateful parasite and the other a man who has given probably half the people on earth at least a laugh or two in one way or another.
 
2014-08-12 11:23:36 PM  

ClicheRinpoche: Sometimes there isn't an answer. Robin Williams killed himself. I never imagined writing those words in that order. But he did, and we didn't know him, we couldn't know what he faced. Let him hopefully be at peace.


I listened to a rebroadcast of his NPR interview back from 2006 where he completely dismissed the notion that he was clinically depressed.  The follow-up was whether given Williams gifts couldn't he just talk his way out of any therapy session.  He was pretty glib and ended it imitating a Suicide Hotline operator saying "Well life isn't for everyone".  From what I understand a lot of the great comedians suffered from one form of mental illness or another.  It's the mask they use to hide their suffering.

You have that reversed. If Williams was a greedy, hate-filled, shameless, selfish asshole who wouldn't give two shiats about anybody or anything, with no thoughts deeper than "fark you, I got mine", he would have been a Conservative.

So, now we're pretending Rush Limbaugh is "just an entertainer" and that Republican leaders and lawmakers don't immediately apologize and kiss his ring anytime they say something he disagrees with.

What a dutiful little Republican you are.

Radioactive Ass: Robin Williams was my kind of liberal. Funny and not too serious about his views. I like conservatives that do that too. Being mean doesn't play well to a crowd. Carlin could do it because he was playing to a packed audience. Williams played to a much broader audience

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Robin Williams killed himself because he thought no one loved him enough to justify his staying alive.

William's killed himself because he was selfish, just like every other person who committed sucide. You kill yourself because of you, not someone else. Anything else is a matter of justification and not a reflection of reality. It's quite clear that he was loved both near and far. It was his to grasp or let slip through his fingers.


Sometimes you're kind of a dick, you know that? And you can't use apostrophes worth a damn, either.

Well, they already booed a guy that was a Taliban POW for 5 years. Not surprising they'd boo a guy who made millions laugh, frequently did USO shows for the troops, raised millions of dollars for the homeless, and regularly visited kids in the hospital to cheer them up. I mean, he didn't vote the way they like. That makes him worse than Hitler.

At least subby didn't use quotations to attribute that to rush limbaugh.  I actually bothered to listen to the audio clip and he sounds fairly respectful, or even sad, about Robin Williams "He had it all but had nothing; made everyone else laugh but was miserable."  Rush didn't say Robin Williams committed suicide because he was a liberal.

It's really pretty impressive how a misleading headline can lead instantly to a barrage of disparaging remarks, including death wishes and comments meant to intimidate anyone with a different opinion.

Who's the more foolish, the fool or the fools who follow him?  After reading the headline and listening to the audio clip the submitter looked pretty foolish.  After reading the comments, the fools who followed were definitely more foolish.

Why would anyone try to make a political point from the death of a man who suffered from severe depression unless they're a complete douchebag.

"Robin Williams felt guilty that he was still alive while his three friends had died young, and much earlier than he had," the conservative talker explained. "He could never get over the guilt that they died and he didn't."
"Well, that is a constant measurement that is made by political leftists in judging the country."

Saying political leftists have something akin to survivor's guilt when judging the country sounds like something Rush Limbaugh would say.  And I really don't care why.

But he's not saying that Robin Williams committed suicide because he was a liberal.

Limbaugh's remarks were taken terribly out of context in this article.  For example, he was actually mocking the idea that Robin Williams was feeling "survivor's guilt after the deaths of entertainers like Christopher Reeve, Andy Kaufman and John Belushi."

Here is the link to Limbaugh's actual comments, if anyone wants to see them without being strained through a left-wing web site, which means that I'm pretty much wasting my time:

Rush attempted to link the depression from which Williams was suffering to a 'liberal world view'... as if Williams would not have suffered from depression had he been a conservative.

"Robin Williams felt guilty that he was still alive while his three friends had died young, and much earlier than he had," the conservative talker explained. "He could never get over the guilt that they died and he didn't."
"Well, that is a constant measurement that is made by political leftists in judging the country."


That doesn't make a lick of sense. Rush tried to say that his depression was the result of being a liberal. It was a despicable use of a human tragedy to take a cheap political swipe at his political enemies. The only one looking foolish is you.

Those close to Williams have stated he was battling severe depression so reading that makes Limbaugh look like even more of a dick by trying to go for political spin.

Sadly, they are proud of this vile behavior. A seething hatred of everything and everyone that isn't as Aryan Pure as them, and the desire to go out and hurt anything and anyone that isn't as Aryan Pure as them.

God help us all if these psychopaths ever retake the White House. They have already written off 47% of the American population. Plans to how to exterminate that 47% are certainly on their horrid little minds.

Yes, headlines on Fark tend to be overly trolling or not entirely accurate so you're going to be miffed for awhile.  It still doesn't take away that he was a complete douchebag to use a popular comedian's suicide due to depression as a springboard for one of his noxious rants.  I like how you left that out but thanks again for the "concern".

I wonder if he'll go down like Uday & Qusay Hussein? ( if he actually has some pretty dark secrets, that is...)

theknuckler_33:   Rush tried to say that his depression was the result of being a liberal. It was a despicable use of a human tragedy to take a cheap political swipe at his political enemies.

I confess I don't know what Rush tried to say.  What he did say, though, is the issue.  Without listening to this clip again, he basically says Robin Williams' unhappiness fits a certain picture of the political left: general unhappiness.  So he is using this tragedy to take a cheap political swipe.  Every tragedy has talking heads doing the same thing.

Rush didn't say Robin Williams committed suicide because he was a liberal.  It was a misleading headline.

Fart_Machine:   Yes, headlines on Fark tend to be overly trolling or not entirely accurate so you're going to be miffed for awhile.  It still doesn't take away that he was a complete douchebag to use a popular comedian's suicide due to depression as a springboard for one of his noxious rants.

You've implied that this headline is merely "not entirely accurate" twice now.  I encourage you to read it again and admit it is entirely inaccurate.  My point was that I don't care if Rush Limbaugh goes on a rant against the left.  That is so expected it should be unremarkable.  But that's all he did.  The headline encourages us to be outraged that Rush said something he didn't actually say. Most of the comments here take the headline at face value and say horrible things.

If you want to say headline is inaccurate, but Rush is bad because of something else... fine.  I encourage you to do so.  Just scroll up in the comments and you see people saying he's bad because of what subby said, and that feels a bit disingenuous.
