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.

That is striking how entertainers alongside Jay Leno, Larry King and others are categorized and politicized by folks. One must be devoid of reality if one cannot perceive who is the true leader or who is really pulling the strings. Like my cousins in the US said, the politics divides families over two different electoral camps. Thatís really scary and sad. Letís destroy all the monuments and loot the shops, letís eradicate the system but who will be fit to rebuild it later? Get reality check there.

Re: Rush Limbaugh death reported

The comments he made about AIDS victims were ... well ... vile. There is no other word for that.

I'd rather not repeat his vileness and celebrate his death, because thats sinking to the level he operated at.

RIP

If you are not from the US you may not have heard of him, because he wasn't speaking to those outside. No, he was speaking to, and building, what has now become 'The Base'. His impact on the US political landscape was immense.

Limbaugh laid the groundwork all those years ago for the politics of hatred that has taken over our country today. His radio show - commentary served with a big ol' dollop of venom and tribalism - reached millions and influenced many millions more. His show gave voice to, and validated, the destructive forces we see today. 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. Without his influence, bipartisanship might even still be a workable concept rather than a dirty word.
There's much sense in what you say.

In order for his show to have influence, the ingredients were already there.

His show was a voice, his audience were receptive and are much more than innocent bystanders.

Re: Rush Limbaugh death reported

Of course it's "ramblings" when it does not suit you .

The question is pretty simple...

For ex. If you shoot the soldier will that stop the casualties, the number of dead people ? If you shoot the commander in chief will that stop the war or the horror? No.

Will you be taking a huge risk if you try to question or attack or kill those ones who are behind the scenes and the ones who have the actual executive power? yes .

Same goes for Limbaugh, fox tv, and so on ...

Guys, I was hesitating if I should mention the pizzagate since I've seen how it's been shunned by the mainstream media . So I'm showing some bravery here to face you all to make me look like a fool .
If you look up closer you'll see how just like bengazi - John CStevens death, deleted emails, Podesta, etc .this has been buried and made "ridiculous claim" but hm hmm ...
I dont buy it and wont accept them to tell me what's true or not true .

I don't know anything about his radio shows, or what he is like on them, or where he stands politically, but I like his youtube channel and the way he talk about cars.

Only for being a supposed radio host, he's not very good with other people. When he has guests on his car show he's always cutting them off or trying to put words in their mouth. You would think as a show host he has more subtle ways of making them say what he wants.

I know who Jay Leno is. I was wondering why in the world they referred to him. He’s the most non political host ever and hasn’t been on the air in many years.

Re: Rush Limbaugh death reported

Susie, if your combat for the truth, justice, progress, feminism whichever is serious how can this refrain you from answering and going a step further in this discussion ??

So far to me it's just a show off... Like "oh I dont like Trump, Republicans, Bush admin ... etc. But , as soon as you're confronted with how your stand is actually pretty superficial because apparently "Limbaugh" show was "evil" but not the ones who have ordered it (highest government officials who had participated on that same show many times) nor the so-called opposition , who have been and are flirting with the former for deacdes . ???

While here you are polarizing each time how "these ones are evil " BUT these other ones " are fighting the evil" , which in my opinion is just a big show for the Plebeians, like yourself I assume while they're all making deals, partying ,kissing while executing orders for their masters .

Until we all understand and move forward how there is no left and right ,there's only up and down.. we can enjoy some pics

Re: Rush Limbaugh death reported

If you show me, where I'm mourning him then your call stands.

Otherwise, it's just that crybaby approach , "oh we hate this guy , I mourn he even lived, I despise the day he was born"??? do you realise how ridiculous this is and embarrasing?

And why the hell shouldn't I say a word about that ? Is this topic only for a show off how "oh he was bad bad" ?

Honestly you are free to say whatever you want. Have at it. I don't really think your line of argument applies but it's a good approach.

I spent "way" too many hours listening to Rush in the past. Although there are many things that he said that I agree with politically, it still doesn't change the fact that he was an awful human being. I'd still piss on his grave if given the opportunity.

Just curious, have you ever even listened to him other than a soundbite on youtube?

OK let me break it to you slowly guy.....This isn't a Bill Clinton, JFK (and his family), and many others thread. My point is that I am not mourning Limbaugh's death. Sorry if it is too complex of a point for you to get.

Thereís no reason to perpetuate hatred.

Some people tend to forget that:
ďKindness begets kindnessĒ

With answers to the posts above, it seems like some need to be reminded.

Death is death.

No more, no less.

Pity you don't get that.

I wouldn't mourn the death of any political figure, actually, they ALL suck. Part of the job.

That's your issue: you don't care. Let the people from the US and people with family in the US write their worries away.
