Where is Rush Limbaugh?

Last edited Fri Jul 20, 2012, 08:58 PM - Edit history (1)

Hope you're happy, you bloviating, pasty-assed, sonovabitch!!
What happened in Colorado is an act of domestic terrorism.
Plain and simple.

Your agenda of spewing hate just caused the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States!!

You can see how this thread was "freeped" by Rush's defenders within just a few hours.

71 real people were shot early this morning in Colorado.
12 of them were killed.

We learned during the Iraq War several years ago that for every causality, that there are at least 9 other people affected by the causality, on average.
That means that 639 people that know the victims are also affected by this mass shooting this morning.
Including the 71 victims, that means that 710 people, at least, will be impacted on a long-term basis by this mass shooting.
710 real people.
710.
That's a pretty big number.

That doesn't include the 100s of FBI agents, 100s of policemen, 100s of ambulance attendants or paramedics that were called to the scene of the shooting.
That also doesn't include the 100s of doctors, nurses, and nursing attendants who were involved with treating the victims of this mass shooting all day today.

710 people.
710 real people.

Not just a few names of anonymous posters on a message board, but real people.

Calling for them to be patriots, to rise up, and "take this country back."

56. More than likely Rush is on the phone trying to apologize to Mitt for causing this shooting.

After all, Rush knows that Mitt just loves to borrow his son's gun and shoot varmints every other decade or so.
So, Rush has to appease the misguided idgits of the world that don't realize just how dangerous a Romney presidency would be to the 99%ers.

19. there were 71 people total.

12 dead. 59 injured.

VT had 32 deaths by shooter. Several more injured. 20 more deaths than today. There were more deaths at Killeen, TX. There were more deaths at Luby's shooting in TX in 1991. There were more deaths at Columbine.

Maybe the most injured by gunfire in Aurora, but, imo, the results at these other places were worse in terms of number of deaths.

Thats not to belittlle the horror of this event. But, you started the post with an unsubstantiated claim that Limbaugh caused this. How you gonna feel if the nutball who did this today was a schizophrenic who happened to be a registered Democrat?

If you dont know it to be a fact, dont state it as a fact.

Not yet, at least. Nothing I have read indicates that this shooter was political, listened to rush, or even had a TV or radio.

Remember the back-tracking and "hoping my post hurries up and falls off the page" with respect to rush dog-whistling Loughner in Tucson? I certainly do.

And, then even the fact you tried to state about the number of casualties isnt fact.

12 killed. 59 injured. 71 total shot. thats the fact.

126. thought you said 83 were shot today.

geez. make up your mind. 58 were shot at VT, with 33 deaths, making the kill ratio at VT 57% as compared to 17% today. Almost 3 times as many fatalities at VT.

I said upthread that there were more people shot today, but not close to as many deaths.

None of this, however, has any relevance to the main assertion of your OP, being that Limbaugh caused today's killings.

Face it. Your assertion is flat out wrong.

Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates, in a briefing with reporters on Friday afternoon, said that 71 people had been shot in total and 12 had been killed during shootings at an area movie theater early Friday morning.

Do you want to keep arguing about the numbers?

Number two: I agree with you description of Limbaugh.

Number three: While very bad, it wasnt the worst mass shooting in US history.

Finally: Limbaugh does need to STFU, but lets not make claims until they are substantiated.

i still equate the deadliest attack with the worst attack. And, not all of the injured in this case were shot..some were injured with gas.

45. It makes sense because Limpballs has been ranting about the new Batman movie for DAYS.

He was infuriated because the villain was named "Bane", similar to Willard Romney's "Bain" Capital. I'd be very surprised if there isn't a link.

157. His behaviour is the big clue

He shot 71 people, to no advantage to himself, with no stated reason, and who were only connected by being at a movie theatre. He had planned this for long enough to have armed himself, obtained body armour, and made or bought some sort of smoke grenade. He also booby-trapped his apartment.

Do you really think that wouldn't be taken as indications of mental illness? Not whether it would affect his criminal culpability, but of a mental disorder.

this tragedy happened yet? The truth is we do not know.

Defending the truth is what people are trying to do.

Right now, the focus should be on the victims, not on trying to gain some political advantage from their suffering.

Sometimes I hate politics for this reason. It seems to make people immune to real suffering in the world and cause them to look for an advantage for their team in everything that happens up to and including horrible tragedies like this.

When I was not interested in politics, I simply reacted to events for what they were.

Sometimes I wish I could go back to that place.

fact is, we don't have enough information to do anything other than speculate. so why the person who's already diagnosed the shooter as "paranoid schizophrenic" should devote a whole thread to telling others how awful it is to speculate about political motivations is beyond me.

besides the silliness of diagnosis from a distance, there's also the silliness of the assumption that motives/causes are black/white, never mixed.

141. I don't know what his story is. And having extensive personal knowlege of how regularly the media

 

gets the story wrong in very important ways, I'm not inclined to *any* conclusions on day 1.

Not even as to likelihoods.

Not enough evidence unless you go in with an assumption that mass shooters are likely to be crazy.

which i don't.

that Rush is responsible.

This has been all over the internet/cable TV.

When you put stuff like that out there, you have the potential to trigger a reaction in a mentally unstable person.

Whether this person was a Democrat who went to shoot "Bane" because he represented Romney or whether it was a republican who answered Rush's call...the point of it is...that I feel Rush had a huge responsibility in this just as he had in the shooting of Gabby Giffords.

premature to dump this in his lap.

We don't know what motivated the shooter. We don't know whether he is mentally ill. We don't know what his politics are. We don't know whether he ever even listened to Limbaugh.

It's true that Limbaugh and his ilk create a generally toxic atmosphere, but if Holmes turns out to be mentally ill, like the guy who shot Gabby Giffords, there may be no causal nexus at all. Sometimes a very disturbed mind creates its own causes.

A modern day warrior
Mean, mean stride
Today's Tom Sawyer
Mean, mean pride

Though his mind is not for rent
Don't put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day's events
The river

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the mist, catch the myth
Catch the mystery, catch the drift

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his skies are wide

Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No his mind is not for rent
To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren't permanent
But change is

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witness, catch the wit
Catch the spirit, catch the spit

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide

Exit the warrior
Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day

Ok. You feel that to be true. Fine. But acknowledge that this is just something that exists in your head at the moment. There is no independent evidence that Rush even owns a mind-control ray let alone that he set it on Movie-Theatre-Massacre.

your BS are freepers makes a difference?

Im gonna tell you something: I was one of the people affected by the VT massacre (though not on the level as my brothers family)My nephew was the RA on the hall where the first murder occured and was in the marching band with the victim. Several of my very close friends' children ran for their lives to find cover. Children that my children played with growing up.

I watched as they all had to deal with the loss of their friends. It wasnt pretty.

i feel no need to compete over which shooting was worse. They are both horribly tragic on many levels.

However, imo, it tramples on the memory of the victims when people like you want to use their deaths to score political points, especially when you have no proof...just your own desire to see a political enemy fall. And, if it comes out that you are wrong about the Limbaugh connection (and i would bet my last dollar you are wrong) the end result will be nothing but embarrassment for you.

So, as far as i am concerned, you can take your "freeper" accusation and shove it.
