Wasabi and Soy Sauce: But he's not saying that Robin Williams committed suicide because he was a liberal.


We could fill this thread with bigoted, hateful, and misleading things that Limbaugh has said. If he doesn't want to be misinterpreted, he shouldn't have picked "trolling" as a career path.

If someone attributed something half as terrible to me, nobody who knows me would believe that I'd said it. Rush, on the other hand, gets exactly what he deserves. He hasn't earned your time nor anyone else's spent splitting hairs and white knighting for him. He, in fact, has made a living out of skirting the line of good taste knowing full well that his listeners will *wink wink* get the message.

Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: 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.


It's gonna have to be this one.

Robin Williams liked Obama and made fun of Dubya for being the idiot he is.
 
2014-08-13 01:30:48 AM  
Word is that he was bankrupt and was no longer in control of his life and career.  He was a money machine working for others (e.g. 2 ex wives) on projects he wasn't  thrilled about (Doubtfire 2).  SAD.

rvesco: 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:

http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2014/08/12/robin_williams_and_the_ po p_culture_media


Could you point out where the mocking was, because I don't know what you were reading, but he certainly doesn't mock the idea.
He brings the topic of survivor's guilt up, but then just shifts onto some condescension about "leftists" and follows that with musings on the glorification of suicide.

The headline is a lot closer to the reality than your statement is though.

Rush is the one stating that Robin William's attitude was that of a leftist.

He had it all, but he had nothing.  He made everybody else laugh but was miserable inside.  I mean, it fits a certain picture, or a certain image that the left has.

Apparently only "leftists" suffer depression.

Yeah, well Rush has a history of drug abuse. I'm sure he's had some pretty low points in his life. To not have sympathy for others after that is hypocrisy.

Good times.

Radioactive Ass: William's killed himself because he was selfish, just like every other person who committed sucide.

Pretty sure we've already done that thread, and I'm happy to report that the general consensus was that you should piss off.


What? I dunno it sounds pretty legit. Like being gay is a choice. And the civil war was about state's rights. Unions are bad. It just makes sense because it fits in a tweet or sound byte.

Wasabi and Soy Sauce: 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.


No, I've said headlines on Fark tend to be overly trolling or not entirely accurate.  That's a general statement.  Please fill out this form and submit it to Drew for consideration.

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.


Who knew Tom Cruise had a Fark account...

Bullfark. He said leftist mindset. How many conservatives do you know with a "leftist mindset?" If Steve Forbes offs himself tomorrow is it because of his "rightist mindset?"

He was saying an outrageous thing to get over. You're arguing semantics. The headlines' not inaccurate at all. You're being a douchebag.

Forbidden Doughnut: olderbudnoweiser: Ya know, I'm bummed out right now about the passing of Robin Williams, but, thanks to Rush, I've found comfort from that sorrow, knowing I'll enjoy no small amount of glee and merriment once again when his fat ass finally croaks.

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

/ I'd watch that on CNN!


I'd be overjoyed if he went out like Moammar Qaddafi.

And actually, I was a little sad for Qaddafi, the way he went. Not as the brutal dictator he was, but as the scared old man he became. And I'll feel the same way when Limbaugh gets his fat ass hauled out of some storm drain and he gets beat to death by a crazed mob of Dominican rent boys--a little sad, because so many times along the way he could have seen that coming and avoided it--and just couldn't do it because the power trip was so so sweet.

And here's a bayonet up your ass too, Rushbo.

Limbaugh is perpetuating the myth that libtards are empathetic. There is always a self-serving element to lib empathy. I wouldn't be surprised if we see some lawsuits against Williams' estate in the next few days or something else that explains why Williams decided to get out of Dodge.
 
2014-08-13 06:02:13 AM  
Why in the world would anyone with a brain listen to or care about what farktards like him would say? I certainly don't and never will.
 
2014-08-13 06:03:27 AM  
I didn't think I would ever want to do this to anyone, but for Limbaugh I will make an exception and piss on his grave though I bet I'll have to wait in a very long line to do so.

jmr61: Why in the world would anyone with a brain listen to or care about what farktards like him would say? I certainly don't and never will.


Well, brains or not, what Limbaugh says sadly carries weight with a good number of people.  So, unlike a piece of shiat like Fred Phelps, who was like a fart in the wind, this lumbering jackhole actually has a modicum of power.  His dumb-ass followers will nod in agreement and it will further inject more anti-liberal nonsense into their junkie heads and then they'll vote and act on it in even more bewildering ways, effecting us all.
 
2014-08-13 07:09:26 AM  

Wasabi and Soy Sauce: 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.


Not sure which clips you listened to, but the things he was quoted as saying in the article were at best inarticulate and open to a wide range of interpretation, and at worst exactly what subby said.  A smarter, more self-aware man, after such a long history of being "misquoted" and "taken out of context," would be more careful with his words when talking about the passing of a beloved figure, or better yet remain silent.  Those are qualities long abandoned by Rush Limbaugh in the pursuit of personal profit.
 
2014-08-13 07:26:16 AM  
This quote comes to mind:

"You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"

But of course he doesn't have any decency "left", because he never had any to begin with. And on the scale of terrible things Rush has said, this doesn't even rank that high.

mutterfark: stoli n coke: Pay attention, Rush. The huge outpouring of people remembering Robin Williams is something your death will never bring out of people.

In fact, the only thing that will happen after Rush dies, is the people going through his possessions will bust open a padlock on his cellar door, and dozens of Dominican boys will bust out the door screaming "Libertad! Libertad!"

In other words, Rush. It should have been you.

I imagine there could a great outpouring for Rush. A warm, yellow outpouring of popular opinion on his grave.


Alot of it would also be brown....
