8. Yes there was
And Philosoraptor summed it up in this post:

I keep hearing that rush limbaugh is a pedophile and hard core drug addict, though there is not a shred of evidence proving it, how does this nasty internet rumor keep getting spread around?

Is it some sort of grass roots, organized smear campaign against a good man dredged up by the relentlessly cruel wild eyed left wingers?

Just where in the world do these totally unfounded rumors come from and how do they keep popping up?


http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

If you haven't heard it before, make sure you ask all your friends if they've heard this rumor.

34. I am going to ask every friend I have if they know the rumor that Rush Limbaugh is a
hard core junkie pedophile. Many people are suprised to learn that there are rumors that Rush Limbaugh is a hard core junkie pedophile. They can hardly believe that Rush Limbaugh would be a hard core junkie pedophile.

92. Rush a Nazi? I don't believe it! Oh, wait...
There was an excellent Bushflash animation saying the same thing. In Rush's own words! In Rush's own voice!!!

Damn, Bushflash seems to be down. I recall some weeks ago seeing Eric say he was having problems maintaining the site. :(

Oh well, it's on youtube here. But the end-credits have been lost in the conversion from SWF animation to youtube video. So I can't tell you which wonderful people spent long hours editing clips from Rush's radio crapfests to boil them down into Rush singing the lyrics that castigate himself. Sample: "From the bowels of Adolf Hitler comes the voice of Rush Limbaugh."

Worth watching if you haven't seen if before. In fact, worth watching again anyway. :thumbsup: :rofl:

But who cares about telling the truth - fuck Republicans.

94. Ah we get to the nub of the matter don't we?
Well I don't like Rush Limbaugh's tactics - I pretty much hate him. The only one I hate more is Ann Coulter. So I am unhappy when I see people I agree with adopting his tactics. It saddens me. It angers me. It disgusts me. Throwing around unsubstantiated rumors and smears - well that's not something I can get behind.

But if you want to believe that I'm a freeper here to defend Republicans because I love them, well, I guess I can't stop you.

18. You know how smears work-
You tell someone something that is believable. Heck you can even say something that is known to be true, say, "Rush is a hardcore drug addict". Then you mix in some other stuff that also so sounds believable, like he's also a pedophile. Finally, you ask everyone you know if they've heard that Rush is a hardcore drug addict and pedophile. Next thing you know, it has gone viral and, like the game telephone, what was originally said (just an allegation) isn't what people on the end hear or believe.

Who knows how these things start? :)

26. True, that's why it's so easy to smear Dems.
But with Rush, he's got corporate america rushing to protect the savior of AM radio. He'd have to actually kill someone in cold blood to be dethroned, and then that's still a crapshoot.

Next thing you know there will be stories going around about him going to somewhere like ... oh, I don't know ...
like maybe the Dominican Republic with a bucket full of viagra to spend some time with 'the boys'. :eyes:

and while he was working himself up to go pedophiling.

23.  Rush's junkie pedophilia is understandable!
I wouldn't want to talk bad about the guy, he's been through so much with his drug addiction and the embarrassment after he lectured drug addicts the world wide about what losers they were...well, you can imagine how depressed he was. and i think it's only natural that he needed ...comfort and we shouldn't judge. Jesus says not to judge. Most of those boys were willing. And anyway, I just wouldn't want to say. Bless his heart. I hope he gets help, because you know it's a sin. god can forgive a drug addict but not a pedophile. We're prayin for you, Rush baby. You can overcome!

35. after all....
no one, no one in public anyway, has ever heard rushlimpballs say. "I AM NOT a junkie pedophile."

Which, as everyone knows, is absolute proof that he is a junkie pedophile.

I mean, if he wasn't, he would deny it...wouldn't he?...like all the time on his comedy radio show?

He's probably just in denial.

It's like he actively avoids any discussion that he is a hardcore junkie and pedophile! He refuses to discuss it. That, in and of itself, speaks volumes and is enough for me.

47. we're not supposed to talk about it
but there's been an ongoing investigation. one of his aides found printouts of naked boys in his office and felt duty bound to report it to the DoJ and you know how on top of it they are. They immediately checked his voter registration card and membership to Reicht Wing groups. Whew. He's a card-carrier! The investigation, such as it is, will be dropped asap and contrary to the usual DoJ standards, it won't be leaked to the press prior to indictment. Isn't that great? Thank god he's a god-fearing and bible thumping korporate member of the Republican party. Sad to see his friend who raped the 14 year old girl go down, but that was political partisan attacks by a Democrat. The democrats socialize sex, you know? WE try to keep it in our family. Bless you.

he was seen with two underage and under dressed children...because my neighbor knows a close friend of his sister and they both swear on the holy bible that they saw it. a shame. bless his heart. always thought so highly of him, but he never has been able to keep his personal troubles from coming to bite him in the behind. i feel sorry for him, i do, he's just never gonna get it together. don't tell a soul this, but i heard tell he spies on kiddies in the baby pool! Oh, it sickens me.

It is an attempt to find out where this rumor came from. Until we find out, we don't know whether it is true that there actually is a smear campaign that contends that Rush is a hardcore drug addict and pedophile.

...and then flare up again.

So Rush Limbaugh is a junkie pedophile? Is that what people are saying?

GSD Says:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey, El Limp-baugh, if they were to have a pedophile survivor or a serial killer survivor wouldnt the white males in their 40s and 50s be a shoo in to win that competition?

Rush, you fit right in with the serial killer, pedophile profile.

I hope people don't think I'm adding to Rush's already dubious background by asking if any anyone has heard that he's a pedophile, drug addict with serial killer tendencies! Just because I put it in the subject line, doesn't mean I'm saying he is a serial killer. Right?

77. i wouldn't go so far as to say he's a 'serial killer', yet....
Edited on Fri Aug-08-08 01:19 PM by islandmkl
i mean, have you heard or read anywhere that no bodies have been found buried on his palatial estate in florida?

...which would tend to imply that maybe there have been bodies found...

but, i'm sure it won't be long before we hear this:

"He seemed like a nice man. He was very popular on his comedy radio show. We never really saw him outside in his yard or anything, but he seemed friendly enough from what we heard. He WAS married several times, you know, and none of the marriages seemed to work out. And we heard about that trip to that island with the viagra and all. And there WAS that business about that cotton drug he was involved with. But we never had an inkling he was a serial killer. But, come to think about it, he was a little strange. Never out in his yard...always kept to himself behind that big wall. And my one neighbor said she thought he didn't really like women. The only woman we know of that he is ever around is that housekeeper of his, and I have to tell you, she is one nervous-acting lady. And, we always wondered how many swimming pools he had behind those walls, because god knows he sure had a lot of pool boys coming and going. And I've heard that his pools aren't really all that clean. Myself, I never trusted his smile."

83. Or wait for the movie
Thanks to jakem I found out there is a movie being planned.

Is Rush Limbaugh A Junkie Pedophile? is the latest film from Michael Moore. It reports to investigate persistent internets rumors about Mr. Liimbaugh's alleged drug use and child-diddling.

Mr. Moore has given a general release date of "Fall, 2008", but provides no other information to the general public, except to say that Mr. Limbaugh did not directly participate in the making of the film, but his presence was felt throughout by the use of news reports, file photos, anonymous interviews with underage Dominican boys and medical reports. Nor, as Moore points out, has Limbaugh denied any of the charges.

Mr. Limbaugh has released no official statement as of July, 2008 as to whether the charges that he is a junkie pedophile are true or false.

http://www.wikiality.com/Is_Rush_Limbaugh_A_Junkie_Pedo...


It's on the truthiness encyclopedia wikiality which only reports its own version of reality. In other words, it is solid information!

Wow, hadn't heard about that little fact that Rush Limbaugh is a junkie pedophile.

I read "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot" but didn't see the mention that Rush Limbaugh is a junkie pedophile in there.

I must have missed the part about Rush Limbaugh being a junkie pedophile.

Junkie pedophile.

Edited on Fri Aug-08-08 03:42 PM by happydreams
his other life in Pennsylvania back in the 70's where, it was reported, he was caught giving some guy a blowjob in public.


The Conservative ideal may sound benign until you find out the crazy things Conservatives believe and do. Did you know that most of the child molesters in this country are conservative and many of them are clergy? Most people who murder with guns are conservatives. That conservatives love war and killing for their "GOD"in Iraq and other places for their taskmasters, but are squemish about abortion. That most sado-masochistic killers and torturers are highly religious and conservative? That conservative politicians fornicate, steal more money, despise the Constitution and want to replace it with Biblical Reconstructionism, and hate democracy far in excess of liberals and yet vociferously condemn a liberal who does even a small part of what they do regularly (Gingrich, Livingston, Hyde==in plain site-- went after Clinton, Rush gasbag).

Do you know that these Conservative constituencies ignore the crimes of their friends and leaders of the cloth when they learn they are violating their own principle of faith? They think it is a sin for people of differant races to marry and that slavery was a good thing simply because it was in the Bible and that the Stars and Bars are a heritage to be proud of, while at the same time purportedly being purveyors of brotherly love. Did you know that most conservatives think education is bad? That it pollutes your mind. I have found that conservatives believe that wife beating is OK because the bible doesn't prohibit it and that 'woman should remain subservient to men'; What better way to make somebody subservient than to beat them. That is why they are opposed to spousal abuse laws: 'the work of socialist/communist thinkers' interfering with Christian/Conservative family values. "Spare the rod and spoil your wife and any other motherfucker that falls out of your favor"?

Conservatives beleive that this country should be a theocracy and that the Constitution is the work of the devil; that the founding fathers were a bunch of atheistic devil worshippers. They argue that these devil worshippers seperated Church and State to promote atheism, they do not even know how to identify what a democracy is, much less how to maintain and let one flourish; the two hundred plus year history that has proven the superiority of the separation of church and state; that has resulted in more freedom of religion than any other country has been ignored by 'neo-conservatives' and would be extinguished in a flash for whimsical political purposes and material, yes material profit of their leaders. The puppets/flock are largely poor ignorant people afraid to acknowledge how they get '***** slapped' by their cult leaders. Mainstream religion did not used to be like this. Not in any period of time in our history. What happened?

This is what I have learned. I have learned that Conservatives hate equality and justice and relish bigotry and hatred above all else. Their idols are bloated, ignorant specimens of human degeneracy like Rush Limballs, Jerry Falwell and other porcine prophets of religious porn who eat so much that they threaten to explode at any minute. Jimmy Swaggart, Tammy Faye and Jim Bacher, Newt Gingrich and Henry Hyde: adulterers and thieves all walk among and stand above these people and they don't utter a peep in protest. They love Rush because he is ignorant, and bigoted and hateful of education like they are. Limbaughs faith filled audience never dares to ask him a question regarding his views: he makes it very clear through the way he structures his studio and radio show that questions are verbotten. He does this because he is also full, very full of insecurities, vices and other problems associated with ignorance. Like why he changed his name to Jeff Christie and then back again (a blow job in Philly?). Limbaugh squeals like a pig when someone criticises his opinion. He is a corporate profiteer pandering to the fears of a dumbed down population. What happened? What happened is MONEY TOOK OVER!

I have learned that these people who consider themselves versed in the word and practice of the bible which preaches, if you read it, brotherly love, are contemptuous of reason, compassion, and love of their fellow human beings, even their own cult members. They do not forgive or care about any of the principles of behavior in the bible, that they read obsessively in small groups, if it doesn't serve the political ends of their taskmasters/cult leaders. They espouse the virtues of immaterial values, while pursuing material goods as if their is no tommorrow. They say things like 'Greed is good' (Ronald Reagan's famous statement), not realizing that Christ throwing the money changers out of the Church was saying, indeed, the exact opposite. Church going bankers charge usury on a loan without hesitation though the bible is opposed to it. Indeed this is the very foundation of much of Capitalist Christianity. They justify charging usury by saying it is to accomodate modern times. But ,oh how they lash out at any post-victorian 'accomodation' made by the rest of society. They compromise their principles at every turn to accomodate their material pursuits. They rationalize all of their own deeds that go against biblical principle as accommodations. I guess adultery is an accommodation with the temptations of our modern mass communication age with cleavage and cocks at every turn' except for those other than Christian/Conservatives of course. How ludicrous and utterly hypocritical, how pathetic and wasteful to spend ones time and energy in such inane, asinine, circuitous behavior patterns.

I have learned conservatism is nothing more than a yearning for power and that the imps of conservatism are so full of hate that they will do anything for their puppet masters to get them into power (Read David Brock: "Blinded by the Right"). They condemn and in all likely hood would execute someone who disagrees with them if they had the chance; the rule of law be damned.

They hate 'infidels' and love corporate puppetmasters, they hate social welfare, but think that corporate welfare is a godsend. They condemn social activism, but see nothing wrong with the Mafia moving among them, especially in the Catholic Church. The Vatican accomodated the Nazis after WWII to further capitalism and in cahoots with the CIA (Christians in Action). In sum they ignore all of their own hypocrisies, all of them, and roundly and vociferously denounce others who show the slightest diversion from the primrose path of the formers design.

An axiom of religious participation: Any behaviour is tolerated as long as you express a belief in God.

Their contempt for reasoned discourse, study and hard mental work have left them in a self induced state of paranoia and thinly diguised xenophobia that threatens to unleash their wrath at any moment. If this specie becomes extinct and the history is written accurately by some alien species that ventures this way in the future it will be determined that not bombs, or earthquakes, or asteroids or other earth shattering phenomenon as the result of 'Divine Intervention' caused it but that internecine strife as the result of religious conflict and mindless hatred did it, by stopping at every turn any attempts at peace and reasoned human communication. Ask yourself, WHO tries to turn this country into a theocracy?

How they remain ignorant in the midst of so much intellectual opportunity is truly a miracle, a masterpiece of ignorance,selfishness, greed and avarice, cowardice and moral turpitude while claiming to hold the moral high ground. This ignorance is maintained by the flock spending all of their waking hours, when not employed for material gain, reading a bible among 'friends' and trying to out do one another in the 'who is the most religious' game, while at the same time condemning institutions of higher learning. Cult leaders push their members to ever increasing acts of self denial and religious fervor, while undercutting through device and deciet any meaningful, wholesome and intelligent communication between members. Those who dissent are ostricized or purged. This is done at a time in someones life when they are emotionally and spiritually vulnerable; instead of recieving much needed support and guidance they recieve exploitation and manipulation disguised as the former. This is done largely through non-verbal communication and pulling the emotional rug out from under the person when they have hit the bottom of their emotional dive. At a time when someone needs to find themselves they are being molded into a drone for some cult leaders profit. The inevitable result of so much bible thumping is a cult mentality of people who are in complete denial of the self. All feelings are denied and sources of those feelings are externalized. The leader only needs to point at an 'enemy' and the flock follows without question: Nazism/Fascism by any other name. All individual perceptions of reality is subsumed in the group; it is easy to spot these kind of people they have a very poor sense of humor, or none at all. They are contemptuous of articulate communication: this is vividly illustrated in their contempt for writing clearly English and spelling correctly. They do not know how to take it easy and they are very uncomfortable in nature, which evokes primal feelings; something they are in denial of. The world is viewed in black and white, right and wrong. There intellect is limited.

They are then ready for the crusade: all they need is an enemy to satisfy their needs. Who will it be today?

The miracle is that this can be accomplished in the midst of other worldviews.They are, in sum the exact opposite of what they say they are: believers in Christ, the Bible and God, but rather puppets of capitalist adventurers who loath them more than any purported enemy. These puppets mouth anything they think that their taskmasters will like. The more adept ones apply their own limited creativity to please their leaders, while they proclaim to be pleasing 'God'.

These people filled with their atavistic fear of living, growing and the complexities and challenges of life are bound and determined to pollute everything else around them with this fear and ignorance and do it under the banner of religion.

What a joke, what a mockery they have made of their God and his Son. What a sad and sorry lot of fools they became.

Forever an atheist,
9215
