After His Latest Disgusting Comments, It’s Time Rush Limbaugh is Finally Taken Off the Air

limbaugh1The word “freedom” is extremely complicated.  We champion our “freedom” often in this country, but the fact is nobody anywhere has 100% freedom.  Unless you’re someone who lives on some island completely alone, odds are you have to abide by certain societal rules.

When it comes to “freedom of speech,” it can be somewhat trickier because it gives vile human beings the freedom to say disgusting things.

For the most part, I’m very liberal when it comes to freedom of speech.  I’ve never been an advocate for removing people from the airwaves simply because I disagreed with something they’ve said.  If a particular company wants to part ways with someone who says something offensive, that’s well within their rights and often understandable.

That being said, I do draw some lines.

It’s hard for me to define where that “line” is, but for me Rush Limbaugh has crossed it.

The tipping point for me was when he called Sandra Fluke a slut on national airwaves.  If someone wants to attack a public figure such as President Obama, Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh — go right ahead.  Hell, even as extremely low-profile as I am, I get called all kinds of names on my Twitter account.  As a writer for a national political website, I’ve put myself “out there” to face criticism.

But when Limbaugh went after a private citizen, he went too far.  As someone with such a wide audience, you can’t single out a private individual and slander them on national radio.

And as sponsors dropped him right and left, I had hopes that it would soon lead to his full banishment from radio airwaves.  Sadly, it has yet to happen.

Now, I think it needs to.

When Rush Limbaugh pathetically used rape as some kind of an example to compare with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s decision to “go nuclear,” for me that was the last straw.

“Let’s forget the Senate for a minute. Let’s say, let’s take 10 people in a room and they’re a group. And the room is made up of six men and four women. OK? The group has a rule that the men cannot rape the women. The group also has a rule that says any rule that will be changed must require six votes, of the 10, to change the rule. Every now and then, some lunatic in the group proposes to change the rule to allow women to be raped. But they never were able to get six votes for it. There were always the four women voting against it and they always found two guys.

Well, the guy that kept proposing that women be raped finally got tired of it, and he was in the majority and he was one that [said], ‘You know what? We’re going to change the rule. Now all we need is five.” And well, ‘you can’t do that.’ ‘Yes we are. We’re the majority. We’re changing the rule.’ And then they vote. Can the women be raped? Well, all it would take then is half of the room. You can change the rule to say three. You can change the rule to say three people want it, it’s going to happen. There’s no rule. When the majority can change the rules there aren’t any.”

What the hell is wrong with conservatives?  Rape is rape—period. Rape is not like this, it’s not like that—it’s rape. 

Besides, his “comparison” doesn’t make any damn sense.  In a group of 10 people, 6 people would be the simple majority—idiot.  If 5 people voted for rape and 5 voted against, that’s a 50/50 split and does not equate to a majority supporting anything.  So the math behind this ridiculous example is mystifying in its stupidity.

Then by his comparison it seems Republicans would “support rape” as well considering in 2005 — when Mitch McConnell was the Senate Majority Leader — he supported this same change to the rules that Harry Reid finally went through with due to unprecedented Republican obstruction of judicial and executive nominees.

Or I like how he glosses over how House Republicans continue to invoke the “Hastert Rule” where it requires a majority of the majority to allow something to come up for a vote in the House.  Meaning that House Republicans can block legislation that would pass in the House—except John Boehner refuses to let these bills come up for a vote because a majority of the majority doesn’t support them.

So in the House, a simple majority doesn’t matter–heck a super majority wouldn’t even matter.  For the “majority of the majority” to be reached right now it would take 117 Republicans to support something before Boehner would allow it to come up for a vote.  Meaning that even if a bill has all 200 Democrats supporting it, and even say 110 Republicans as well, per the “Hastert Rule” Boehner wouldn’t allow that bill to come up for a vote.

So, per the “Hastert Rule” about 73% of the House could support something, but unless that 73% is at minimum 117 Republicans, it wouldn’t come up for a vote.

Now, do you really want to talk about screwed up rules?  The change in the Senate rules allows for a simple majority — that’s it.  The Republican-controlled House will basically ignore the will of 73% of the House of Representatives if they went by invoking this informal “rule” each time something is supposed to come up for a vote.

But all of that is beside the point.  It’s time Rush Limbaugh finally takes a hike.  He’s hit a point where his level of parasitic filth cannot be tolerated any longer.  Every day he gets on his airwaves, spewing nothing but hate, fear, anger and mostly lies.

Hell, he had the nerve to mock Toronto’s mayor for his drug use.  Rush Limbaugh — a drug addict — mocked another person’s drug use.

While I support the freedom of speech for almost every American, even vile speech, at some point enough is enough.  Rush Limbaugh has pushed so far into the absurd that it’s clear with every one of his shows his main goal is absurdity.  How anyone, or company, could support this pile of garbage shocks me.

Even if I were conservative, I couldn’t support someone who’s so blatantly hateful, hypocritical, disgusting and repulsive.  Which is really ironic considering Republicans claim to be the party that represents the “moral majority,” yet have “icons” like Rush Limbaugh representing their side of the political debate.

If I were a conservative, and thank God that I’m not, I’d be embarrassed Rush Limbaugh continues to be a voice for my party.  But sadly, for many conservatives that I know, they applaud him and his disgusting behavior.

    Rush crossed lines a long time ago. Glad it finally caught up with him.

  • mcquestion5000

    If you’re a true freedom lover you can’t say anyone should be taken off the air. Be satisfied that his audience and revenue is shrinking. He deserves free speech. There will are always consequences for being bigoted and hateful.

    • JoeBS

      Wrong. He has the RIGHT to free speech, Being on the air is a PRIVILEGE. Nobody has a “right” to a radio show, any more than they have the “right” to drive a car. Both are privileges you earn through responsibility. He shows no responsibility. His on air privileges should be revoked.

      • mcquestion5000

        Thus, why I said there are consequences for being bigoted and hateful. But just imagine if you wanted to take everyone off the air who said things you don’t like. I bet he says the same thing, you shouldn’t have your free speech because you disagree with him. Who makes that decision? His audience and revenue is shrinking. His message is dying.

      • soxfan4evah

        Ratings would suggest otherwise. And that is what determines who gets airtime. Are you similarly outraged over the hatred that spews from the MSNBC personalities?

  • Norris

    Not defending Limbaugh; Our very own government is going after it’s very own private citizens…forget Limbaugh’s transgressions, worry about the governments ever so deeper transgressions against ALL citizens!

    • Brianeweis

      Very good point Norris.

    • donschneider

      Government ? no you mean Corporate America , but are afraid to say it for fear of bursting your bubble of incongruity.

  • Fr. Mark Poirier

    There needs to be tremendous pressure on the companies who support Limbaugh. Not only sponsors, but the media companies who air his garbage. I feel the right to free speech is sacrosanct but he has no ” right” to be on the air. Vote against these companies with the power of your wallets…simply tune them out. You’ll be amazed how quickly we can affect change!

      It will not take 100 letters to these advertiser to get the right pressure on them. Money talks and even if you would never have done business with them, write a letter saying you are now stopping any business with them. A very minor lie compared to the damages his lies have caused. So strange that the homosexual sex-slave vacation he took several years ago didn’t enrage his listeners.

  • zedinbc

    Canada has had laws on the books prohibiting hate speech, which includes communications that support, encourage or promote violence and hatred toward identifiable groups or persons. In the past, this law has included a type of pornography that depicts and glorifies rape, torture, extreme degradation (etc). It also included speech that advocated hatred toward groups of people. Lumbaugh would have a harder time staying on the air in Canada as a result.

    In any case, slander is slander and I hope Lumbaugh is sued. He is devoid of any kind of journalistic ethics (proper, reliable research, verifiable facts, honesty, balance, etc). It amazes me that any broadcaster would allow him to junk up the public forum with his mental garbage and verbal diahreah.

      It still sells so, I guess it’s good shit….

    • strayaway

      Mark Steyn had to flee Canada. I thought that Canada’s censorship boards were since eliminated or reduced though. We would have to amend the Constitution to override the First Amendment. As some poster here have pointed out, Limbaugh, or for that matter Rachel Maddow’s, sponsors can be boycotted and forums, such as this can be used to express one’s hostility or penchant for censorship. Those are freedoms too.


        The program is not heard on any stations in Canada, although stations along the northern border of the United States give the show coverage in much of southern Canada.

  • strayaway

    One beauty of the freedom of speech is that it allows fools, hypocrites, and liars to make themselves know so. Examples-

    “Obama 2005 – “I sense that talk of the nuclear option is more about power than about fairness. I believe some of my colleagues propose this rules change because they can get away with it rather than because
    they know it’s good for our democracy……The American people want less partisanship in this town, but everyone in this chamber knows that if the majority chooses to end the filibuster– if they choose to change the rules and put an end to democratic debate – then the fighting and the bitterness and the gridlock will only get worse”

    Biden 2005 – “This is what’s really going on here, the majority doesn’t want to hear what others have to say even if it’s the truth. The nuclear option abandons America’s sense of fair play. I say to my
    friends on the Republican side, you may own the field right now, but you won’t own it forever. I pray God, when the Democrats take back control, we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing.”

    Reid 2005 – “The threat to change Senate rules is a raw abuse of power and will destroy the very checks and balances our founding fathers put in place to prevent absolute power by any one branch of government”

    Reid 2008 -“As long as I am the Leader, the answer’s no,” he said. “I think we should just forget that. That is a black chapter in the history of the Senate. I hope we never, ever get to that again because I really do believe it will ruin our country.”” -as found in ‘Runners’ World’

    • David Ewers

      I noticed that you used quotes that were all before the Senate was hijacked by the GOP and had more filibusters than any other senate is history. Typical Tea bagger. Are you saying the GOP has the right to stop all of the majority

      • strayaway

        Funny. The Senate is controlled by Democrats. Of the 11 longest filibusters in history, 5 were by Democrats including Harry Reid, 2 were by left leaning Independents Wayne Morse and Bernie Sanders, and 4 were by Republicans.

        No. I am saying that Obama, Biden, and Reid are Hypocrites and liars who once espoused anger at the thought of Republicans doing what they are now doing. I can’t say it any better than they did. Since the Senate decides its own rules, either way is Constitutional. I think Democrats have every right to change the rules. I just hope that Democrats still like their new Senate rules just as much the next time Republicans control the Senate.

      • David Ewers

        It has nothing to do with the length of a filibuster but the amount of filibusters that the GOP has done in the past 5 years. So you whole comment is nothing but willful ignorance a you know you are just a liar.

      • strayaway

        So it doesn’t matter to you that the proponents of the Senate rules change used to oppose the GOP doing what they are now doing, that they are hypocrites, that Republican will eventually use the same rule change against Democrats, that the majority of the longest filibusters were by Democrats, that of the two on that list which were the most recent, one was by Bernie Sanders, or that calling someone a “tea-bagger” and “lier” doesn’t make you seem any smarter. In two of those five years Democrats controlled both houses yet, in your imaginary world, they could accomplish nothing because Republicans were always filibustering. Well then, cite some numbers. How many hours has the Senate been in session vs. How many hours were Republicans filibustering? The other recent top 11 filibusters was 13 hours by Rand Paul who successfully made the President reign in his plan to allow 30,000 domestic drones. There was a day when Democrats didn’t support the police state.

      • David Ewers

        Go educate yourself before you sound even more foolish

      • regressive rightwing trash

        his education and audio-foolishness are his “sheepskin”

      • David Ewers

        Again it is not the length of the filibuster but the amount of them the GOP has committed in the last fives years. They have blocked more legislation from coning to any vote than any before. So stop repeating non sequitur statements. You show tea party mentality by repeating their talking points which make no sense what so ever. Remember it was Bush not Obama that start using drones and it was Bush that put us in a position to have to use them.

        Your statement that the democrats had control of both house for two of these five years, but the GOP used the filibuster to stop them for passing many of Obama’s legislation. Maybe if they had done this in the first two years, the economy would be in better shape, since the GOP has refused to pass a single jobs bill. Their idea of a job’s bill is to reduce pollution control and eliminate min. wage.

        More judicial appointments and other appointments have been blocked by the McConnell led minority.

        Again as I said before, you look very foolish and completely uneducated.

      • lovesamerica

        All I have to say is, THANK GOD for the filibuster no matter which party has control of the legislative branch. It was designed to keep the majority party from ramming through their agenda unopposed, despite what the American people may want. I am deeply saddened and VERY concerned that the rules were changed to allow either party to run rough shod over the process that has been in place since the beginning of our great nation.

      • David Ewers

        You do realize this is only for nominations to the court and other government positions. The rules have not changed for bills and budget matters

      • strayaway

        Again, you fail to come up with statistics, after being asked for them, to verify that although Democrats hold the Senate and even held the House for two years of Obama’s reign, Republicans are the reason for their failures. You even bring Bush up for good measure. The buck always goes back to Bush, Reagan, the Koch Brothers, or the Tea Party. The “Buck never stops here” with Obama.

        Regarding drones: Rand Paul stood up and drew attention to Obama’s, not Bush’s. plan to have 30,000 drones flying over us. It was Obama, not Bush, who has killed more people with drones.

        About the only federal jobs program which would have more than a temporary effect at our children’s expense would be to institute import taxes while cutting middle class income taxes and punishing the cheating employers of illegal aliens. Those measures would hardly cost anything. When Obama had a chance to do serious infrastructure projects, it was ruled down by women’s groups who complained that those would mostly be male jobs. Instead, the money was diverted to maintain teachers and other local government payrolls. The opportunity to do infrastructure projects was squandered by Democratic infighting.

        Thank you for the insults instead of statistics. I appreciate the de facto concession.

      • David Ewers

        I do not have to show any stats the facts are widely known. I used the Bush period not blaming him for anything but showing that the Democrats during the years they contorted the senate did not perform in the same way.

        Rand Paul is nothing but a sham, he says he is a libertarian but only follows the libertarian platform that supports his policies. he is anti-gay marriage, anti-abortion. He is completely bought and sold by the Koch Brothers.

        Again you spout nothing but tea party rhetoric, amazing during the Reagan years he did major jobs bills, and the GOP did not complain and he expanded the national debt by 270%. You are nothing but a parrot that says what you heard from other people.

      • strayaway

        Someone else came up with some partial statistics.

        Rand paul, at least, has come out against the drones,

        Obama’s acts of wars, Obama’s attempt at getting us to attack Syria like he attacked Libya, and Obama’s spying on Americans. I can only think of two Democrats in the Senate, Udall and Wyden, who have taken a similar stance. Marriage and abortion aren’t federal issues. The Koch brothers supported his opponent Trey Greyson. How is that support or are you making something up?

        When have I ever supported Bush or Reagan? That’s a cop out. They aren’t even president anymore. Why not criticize president Buchanan or Taylor to change the subject from the here and now? Sorry, but Reagan and Bush also were big government corporatist puppets. Not as bad as Obama of course, but nearly so. Actually, Bush was more stupidly hawkish than Obama. Always, always remember that Obama has run the Country into more debt than Bush and will run the Country into more debt than Reagan calculating Reagan’s debts multiplied by 2.84 to consider cost of living. It is the actual debt we have to pay back not percentages.

        This is what you don’t want to deal with:

        “Obama 2005 – “I sense that talk of the nuclear option is more about power than about fairness. I believe some of my colleagues propose this rules change because they can get away with it rather than because
        they know it’s good for our democracy……The American people want less partisanship in this town, but everyone in this chamber knows that if the majority chooses to end the filibuster– if they choose to change the rules and put an end to democratic debate – then the fighting and the bitterness and the gridlock will only get worse”

      • David Ewers

        Again you have your facts wrong again. He was only going to attack if Syria stopped using chemical weapons and guess what happened it worked. Wow, what a concept. You spout how many people were killed by drones by Obama, but completely dimiss the millions killed by Bush, again typical Tea bagger response.

        You try to blame Obama for having to clean the mess up that was left by Bush. You are simpkly again a fool who has no idea what he is talking about. And yes you did support Bush>

        And for your information, this filibuster end only is for the judicial system and government appointments not the general bill on the senate floor.

      • strayaway

        Obama backed off when his own party, our allies and even the Pope came out against his proposed stupidity. Putin wound up in charge. It’s bad enough that Obama is still providing weapons to a loser faction of rebels trying to overthrow a stable government. If that happens, Syria will, at best, turn into a basket case like Libya after Obama bombed it and overthrew its government. 73% of Americans killed in Afghanistan were killed under Obama and Obama tried to extend both our iraq and Afghanistan involvements. Obama is like Bush II and in some ways worse. No I did not support Bush, I voted for third party candidates in three of the last four presidential elections because I did not want to waste my vote on fools like McCain, Bush, and Obama. Voting for such guys propagates wars and corporatism. Remember when you vote for Hillary that she voted to give Bush the say in whether to invade Iraq. A vote for Hillary is a vote in support of the Iraq war.

      • David Ewers

        you are such a liar

      • jdunaway65

        OK, you want to talk about hypocrites? How about the GOTPers who raised the possibility of the “Nuclear Option” during Cheney’s — er, Dubya’s Presidency because the Democrats used the filibuster a total of 7 times to block a presidential nomination, or an average of less than once per year.
        Since President Obama took office, Republicans have used the filibuster an average of 14.4 times per year to block his nominations. That is 50 times higher than the 1952-2008 average, and more than 14 times higher than during the administration of President George W. Bush. As Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid noted today, in the history of the United States, presidential nominations of federal district court judges have been filibustered a total of 23 times. Twenty of those 23 filibusters have been by Republicans during the presidency of Barack Obama.

        So, once again… WHO is being hypocritical???

      • strayaway

        Here is your reality fix. Do you have any idea of how lame it seems to be blaming Bush for everything.

        But thank you for some statistics. Someone else on this board was incapable of finding any. If true, I don’t know what your source was, I can see where Sen. Reid chooses to break with Senate rules and make his own rules. I just hope that Democrats will be as sanguine the next time Republicans take over the Senate and run it as a Republican dictatorship. I recognize that it is perfectly legal for Sen. Reid to make this change.

        Another question, how are those filibusters you mention measured. Rand Paul spoke for 13 hours and that was one of the 11 longest filibusters in history. So how long were these other filibusters? 13 hours is one day. If each of those filibusters was even one day, that still leaves about 1,825 days that Republicans weren’t filibustering. One would think that Democrats had more resolve than to not hold out longer.

        The hypocrisy I spoke of was the quotes I provided of Obama, Reid and Biden all speaking out against ever doing such a thing before they did it. So it is at least Obama, Reid, and Biden who are hypocritical in response to your question.

      • jdunaway65

        Oh, and BTW… as far as calling someone a “lier” (actually it is “liar”), that was done by Joe Wilson, a Republican… and calling someone a “tea bagger?” I hate to tell you this, but the Tea Partiers co-opted that term in their earliest days, before they realized what a negative connotation it had on them!

      • Sean Gonzalez

        Willful ignorance? Nah, more like Cognitive Dissonance, or what Jon Stewart calls Livin’ on Bull—t Mountain.

  • TheLoneRanger

    I’m not about to defend Rush Limbaugh, but if you morons think he’s crossed the line then it would do you wise to take civil action. Short of legally preventing Rush from voicing his opinion (which will be mighty hard for you) there’s nothing effective you can do. Furthermore, this article contains nigh the same terrible logic as Rush’s quoted comment. I have to put up with mouth diarrhea from assholes all day long, maybe you intolerants can learn to do the same; live and let live.

    • hermanprovi

      “mouth diarrhea from assholes”, and then you call others “intolerants”.
      Look up ‘oxymoron’, and then look in the mirror!

    censorship is a slippery slope. Rush is such an idiot — my view? he will do more damage for the Republican party, which has run amok, by his association with the party.

    We have come to expect this kind of thinking and foul mouthing from Rash Limp-bough! thrice married and still no issues! Maybe, da lawd has “worked in mysterious ways here!

  • Jeremy Elstein

    it’s sad that the author is a contributor to a national political website, yet doesn’t understand that there is a difference between “republicans” and “conservatives” and that the republican party is currently about as far away from “conservative” as you can get.

    • confucius

      Yes, but in the author’s defense those two words are synonymous with each other just like democrat and liberal is even though not all democrats fall in the liberal category (though they are more liberal than their counterparts). I don’t think he means to pick on the “true” conservatives, but those are far and few in between in today’s world.

  • PedroGonzalez

    When Allen Clifton speaks out against the reckless mouthed Democrats, maybe he will have some credibility and we can take him seriously. Until then, he sounds just like any other whining partisan liberal hack.

  • ClearThinker

    You’re upset over a simile, a fairly accurate simile? Get over it. What drivel.

  • Sean Gonzalez

    At this point, I think Limbaugh is paying the radio station to let him broadcast since he can’t have anyone actually willing to pay to be lumped with him anymore….at least no without a lot of subterfuge.

    Freedom of speech means some douche-y redneck can speak the way Rush does while swilling beer in some hole in the wall bar; give assholes like this a mic and let them spew hate and negativity in the manner he does and he creates a hostile situation. He’s more or less advocating an uprising from his violence-loving hateful audience. He’s a very disturbed, angry person and so are many of his listeners. It’s fine to be opinionated, but be of the right opinions! This lame fool has built a personal empire of wealth for himself, as well as a loyal legion of followers, both in an out of the beltway, simply from having something to say. It’s almost always the wrong thing to say. Hasn’t he spoken enough?
    And why, pray-tell, can’t we get some people broadcasting in the same manner as he does, but for the side of GOOD, and actually call people out on things like this? The way to defeat this bully is to confront and answer him to his accord. Get me a microphone, I’ll do it. Shame on this petty mouth-runner.

    Rape? Seriously? This bastard needs to go! Now! I really wish someone would just kill him already.

  • MikeParent

    EIB, Extreme Idiotic Bull-oney.

    Anyone who takes that Draft Dodging, Chicken Hawk seriouly, is an Idiot! He hates women because they prove his Impotence. It looks like Rush is shooting blanks, across the board.

  • Don

    The comments about Rush Limbaugh are far more vile that the full context of the comment he made. I don’t listen to Rush Limbaugh because I have other things I would rather do. If you folks want to live a life of hate and be a lynch mob of progressive idealism…….please listen to him all you want……that is how he makes his money.

  • me

    maybe that bastard should be raped over and over. Stupid stupid bastard.

  • This is ME!

    Unfortunately as long as he has his legions of sheep brained “Ditto” heads who soak up his every word as if he were some divinely inspired oracle he will remain. They bring in the ratings and the ratings bring in the advertisers who bring in the money and that’s what it’s all about baby, MONEY!

  • I’m with you, but what the hell can be done about it? He’s backed by the richest KKK members on the planet. He needs to be kidnapped, stripped of clothes and dropped into the middle of Castro Street in San Fransisco- See if he survives that.

  • Sapphire Possible

    He’ll say anything, as long as he earns enough to pay those alimonies.

  • Guest

    I wish I could meet the small dicked crybaby using my username,,,,,,,,,,,,,, but he has the advantage of internet hiding. that’s OK– he drinks beer- eats frozen pizza and spanking his undersized “monkey” to weak internet porn

  • George Harvard

    Yes, the “TRUTH” certainly is abrasive to liberals, and especially when it comes from Limbaugh…..

  • Jim Bean

    The idea that someone should be silenced because of their opinions seems to be ‘progressive’ to a very unhealthy and un-American extent.

  • soxfan4evah

    Maybe had he said just defecate in their mouths like Bashir Forward Progress would approve

  • theantiantihero

    Keep smoking those cigars, Rush. In fact, I think you should smoke more of them. Maybe try stuffing four of them in your mouth at once?
