No matter what he has done or said, should not matter anymore. He is gone and no need for postmortem profanity. Agreed?
RIP Hitler while you're at it. Must not speak ill of the dead.

Limbaugh was a bag of sh*t that dedicated his life to spewing hatred. The world is a better place without him.

Re: Rush Limbaugh death reported

And donít forget, if not for Bush 1, Limbaugh might have never been seen as a legitimate force. He would have stayed a radio jock in minor markets.

Did anyone hear Trump call into Fox (maybe) about Limbaughís passing. Yeah, we was a force and more endless yammering about loosing the election.

Yea of course, classic narcissistic behavior, made it all about him. But Limbaugh didn't deserve any better...

Is that the Godwinís Law at its best? Comparing Limbaugh to Hitler is a bit extreme, donít you think so?

Perhaps. But perhaps a comparison to Hilterís associates is in order.

Yes, that's better.

Trump <--> Hitler
Limbaugh <--> Goebbels

Not really joking, either.

Re: Rush Limbaugh death reported

The worst thing about Rush's spewing hate publicly was that it's legal.

Which it shouldn't be.

Do you think the world is a better place now when he is dead? Does it really help to spew angry vitriol.

Is the world better? No. But it gives some people a release to spew angry vitriol. Especially if he cheered at the death of one of your friends from AIDS.


Let people feel FFS.

Agree. Sad to see that such a developed nation has this so-called "base" of a major party.

His show let the genie out of the bottle. Without his show sowing those seeds there would have been no Tea Party, no Trumpism, no Qanon.

Heck, without his influence, we might even have stayed a somewhat civil society functioning in a more or less fact-based universe, able to disagree with a modicum of respect and engage one another somewhat constructively.
I don't think so, at all. He didn't talk to a wall, he spoke to people who listened without disagreeing, who bought into his gratuitious hatred. The sentiment was already there. Hadn't it been him, it would have been someone else. Maybe that's the crux: how long would it have taken until any one other person picked that banner?

Yes, the world is a better place and would have been better off if he was never born at all.

We need to remind people the damage & danger that can be caused by just one man.

The point is that when the OP reports a death on the EF, of whoever controversial personality might that be, shall we join the camp of protagonists or antagonists. Shall we mourn or shall we happily dance in euphoria reading eulogy. The EF at its super judgmental Friday mode as always.

You are the only one who is judging.

Re: Rush Limbaugh death reported

Susie, "damaged caused by just one man" ???

I really think you need some reality check and the fact how here everyone is trying to be polite conversations here , exchange of opinions is inexistant.

how on earth is Limbaugh the "evil" guyyy..should never been born?? Really?

Look a bit in a logical way ... Who is he ? What is/was his power ?

Well, he was just a tool, just a puppet, entertainer, .. His power? He does not have any power.

People who need him, who gave him the possibility to do his crap talk are the ones with power and they invest $$$ in radio stations, shows, media in general to create the stir among us , so we are divided and have the illusion of how "oh this is good" "that's bad" . If it was not him who had that job it would've been someone else ,it's just simple as that .

What's frightening is how to you he's a bad guy (and yet, they could've taken him down all these years without any problem, but somehow that never happened) and your hate is focused on him as if he does bad things...

So to you , the fact how Obama dropped 26,171 bombs in 2016 but he's perceived as the peacemaker, the antiwar guy,nobel peace prize winner ,this is never really an issue to you . Of course, while thinking about this, ask yourself how come , all these years 8y of Obama Clinton reign and several years after that, you're not bombed by some "Rush" with information of how horrible Bengazi is , what happened with that button when she pressed to delete 30k emails, how about Pizzagate ??

You see, certain things are just put into perspective so they are manufacturing your opinion therefore you never really question authority . And real power.

Your ramblings are not even worthy of a response ... nobody said it better than meloncollie, so please read her comment. If you are happy with the way American politics has been going the past four years, then you most likely won’t agree with her.

If you liked Limbaugh and mourn his death, feel free to post & mourn accordingly. I won’t shut you down, but I am also free to say what I think & feel about him too.

Edit: Pizzagate? Oh man ....
