Ahhh...compassionate conservatism at its finest.

I get tired of people who try to politicize every single thing on earth, especially things like this. But, if one of these political muckrakers says something controversial, it spreads like wildfire all over social media and blogs and everyone gets outraged and stamps their feet and says, "HOW DARE HE?!?!" and suddenly Rush Limbaugh is part of the Robin Williams story narrative for a few days. And that's how people like this stay in the news. Just latch on to someone else's story by making some stupid, outrageous, controversial political statement out of it.

Conversely, anyone who has depression with kids, presumably is suffering from the fact that they didn't have an abortion and this rock I keep with me at all times, keeps away tigers.

And when Limbaugh dies and I say, "Well, look at his unhealthy habits" I'll most likely get flamed with, "NICE LIBERAL TOLERANCE!"

This script is worn out.

According to Rush, it does.  From just about a week ago:

RUSH: Now, I asked a question at the top of the busy broadcast hour, the last hour, using one of the themes that I have profoundly developed today that politics is part of everything happening in America today. From the culture, to actual government-style politics, everything's political.

http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2014/08/05/everything_is_political

He then goes on to explain how everything is politics.  Everything.  But the evil libs have convinced people it isn't politics, but rather that they care about people, or some such nonsense.

Every time I read ridiculous vomit like that, it not only affirms my belief that abortion must remain safe and legal, but that it should be even more frequent.

Ugh, just give it a farking rest, you sick freaks.

Robin Williams had a uterus? When did that happen?

Personally, when it comes to Rush Limbaugh, I'm in favor of legal abortions through the 257th trimester.

This Jesus guy, as I understand it, he goes around telling people to throw away their wealth, turn society upside down, walk away from their jobs and families, and then he gets nailed to a tree, and suddenly it's our fault, everybody is saying we killed him, and not only that, folks, but this supposedly dead guy comes back and starts up the same nonsense again, but he's gotten too smart, he takes off after several weeks and lets his deluded followers take the heat, while he is probably living it up in his Hawaii condo, but get this, this is the real kicker, he told them that, once they had instituted their Marxist-Leninist-Stalinist-Maoist paradise, he would come back and kill off everybody who doesn't agree with his radical leftist agenda.  But exactly when he comes back is a big secret, wooooooh that's scary kids, don't you think that's scary?

Now tell me, friends, as upstanding, honest citizens, what could turn a man's head into such a pile of mush?  I'm not saying Jesus had a gay sharia abortion, I'm just asking questions.

Sh*t like this is why conservatives shouldn't be allowed anywhere near ANYTHING that impacts reproductive freedom.

Burke included a part of an interview Williams gave to the Guardian in 2008:

"You know, I was shameful...You do stuff that causes disgust, and that's hard to recover from. You can say, 'I forgive you' and all that stuff, but it's not the same as recovering from it," Williams said in 2008 about how he behaved while drinking.

Burke then reimagined the quote to be about abortion and wrote that "Williams may have been making a thinly veiled reference to what society tells us does not exist...his post abortion trauma and complicated grief."


This makes me physically ill.

And for the record, I felt the same way when I saw "Dr." Drew blathering on this morning about Williams as well.  Bunch of shameless opportunists.

The only person I want to hear about Robin is his fellow genius comedian, Rowan Atkinson, who also suffered a bout of depression.

Fox and friends can blather on about mental health, trying to be relevant -- they'll be struggling with that until Fox goes financially bankrupt.

They are all just wanting some 'me' time. They get off on the attention. Too bad people actually take them seriously.

Yeah, but he said she had already been through "the change."

It takes a special brand of naivete to believe that you can understand the psyche of a complex individual and boil it down anything about it into one or two talking points, a total lack of judgement to blurt it out in the public square and a disgusting cowardice to do so after a person is dead and cannot defend him or herself.

What horrible people.

To be fair, willfully ignorant dickheads with a moral agenda speculating on why someone suffers depression may have contributed to a person's depression.

I thought it was because he felt bad for making me watch Hook at the movies all those years ago.

Or I don't know, an emotional and chemical imbalance in the brain brought on by a cycle of drug dependency and life issues.

Nabb1: it spreads like wildfire all over social media and blogs and everyone gets outraged and stamps their feet and says, "HOW DARE HE?!?!" and suddenly Rush Limbaugh is part of the Robin Williams story narrative for a few days.


The "Rush Limbaugh owes his fame to liberals who denounce him" argument has been used before, but it's never been convincing.

His fame is owed entirely to reactionaries who are angry about social change and get a kick out of it when Rush sticks it to uppity women, non-whites and gays for not knowing their place. They're the reason he still has a show, not the liberals who call him out on his bigoted jabbering.

If they didn't get outraged, would his listeners really feel that the libs were properly skewered?

Actually a lot of people in comedy have suffered from depression. Greg Geraldo, Paul Reiser, and Mary Kay Bergman come to mind.

I think it's a matter of how one defies "politics" I think of it as the word we use to describe the process of managing interpersonal relationships in the civil - as opposed to intimate, familial, or commercial - arena. In light of that definition, I do tend to see most everything as "political" in one way or another.

Yup it's not uncommon for comedians to suffer some form of mental illness. Comedy is the mask they wear.

Doesn't make any sense.  Remember how pro-choicers are ruthless monsters who don't even consider an abortion to be the death of a child?  So why would they be depressed?

Jim Carrey is quite open about his depression.  Spoke with the man a few times.  Sweet, sweet man.

So you would agree that Robin Williams killed himself because of his politics, not because of a mental health issue?  Or that his mental health issue was itself a political issue?

That should be obvious to anyone with a brain. It's hardly like his audience is all liberals waiting to be outraged.
