I would like you to apologize, Mr. Limbaugh
Since you lurk here, Mr. Limbaugh, you might read this.

My wife has Parkinson's Disease. Stem cell research will be a blessing to her, and if not to her, then perhaps to her children and grandchildren. We don't know how people get PD, but one of the ongoing theories is that the tendency to get PD is hereditary.

I have seen her shake, Mr. Limbaugh. She has a tremor that at times can be pronounced. Her tremor is not as bad at that displayed by Mr. Fox in the ad that upsets you, but some people have it worse than he does.

Ask Milton Kondracke, who's no liberal. He'll tell you all about it. His wife, Millie, had PD, too. In fact, she had Parkinson's plus, a very debilitating form of PD. Mr. Kondracke wrote a book about Millie's fight with the disease, which I recommend to you.

That's a funny thing about diseases. A disease doesn't care about the political ideology of it host.

Mr. Limbaugh, you have no reason to believe that Mr. Fox was faking anything. You have no reason to believe a lot of what you say and perhaps many good reasons not. But slandering Hillary Clinton is one thing that we've come to expect of you, slandering the victim of a progressive, degenerative disease is another thing altogether. You have simply allowed your hatred of Mr. Fox -- and not so much of Mr. Fox as his personal beliefs -- to run away with your imagination.

It doesn't bother me that you don't agree with him or with me or with my wife on the issue of stem cell research. After all, that's your right. Besides, you haven't changed any minds in twenty years. I don't listen to your program; I leave that to the choir to whom you preach and to the morbidly curious, some of whom pass on your outrageous nonsense to rest of us at DU. I don't see you as a threat.

What bothers me is that you have gone after a victim of a disease. It's like making light of a cancer patient of one recovering from heart surgery. My mother taught me not to make light of any person in that situation, no matter who he was. She taught me to be supportive of such people. I know of a radio personality who has a serious problem with prescription drugs; while I can't stand him, I wish him the best fortune in kicking his habit. It is wrong to belittle the suffering of such people.

You owe Mr. Fox an apology, sir. You owe him and my wife and all who suffer from PD an apology.

If you are big enough, Mr. Limbaugh, you may use this space to apologize. It will be the first time for me and many others at DU will feel any respect for you, but it indeed be an act worthy of respect.

As matter of fact, El Rushbo was declared the worst person on KO's show, with a zinger from Keith advising Rush not mentioning stuff about people being off their meds.

2. Dear Jack Rabbit!
It is easy to recommend this tread, but so hard to comment.

I wish you and your wife all the best. I am so sorry that you have to deal with assholes like Limbaugh. I hope that they'll find a cure, or at least some medications to slow it down significantly.

5. Limbaugh
IS a big fat idiot, as first stated by Al Franken.

The only way Limbaugh, and others like him, will understand a misfortune or in this case, this disease, is to experience it personally. The only way he has become empathetic (hopefully) with those addicted is to experience his oxycontin addiction.

I believe that in some circumstances, life has a way of balancing these things out.

82. It is important to call Limbaugh out on his slander
Edited on Tue Oct-24-06 05:49 PM by MN Against Bush
I am sure Jack Rabbit knows very well that he will not get an apology, but he is doing the right thing by making it known that Rush's words do hurt people with very serious illnesses.

Whether he gets an apology or not is really not that relevant, either way he called Limbaugh out in a very public way and he may have possibly even got a few of the Republicans who lurk around this site to actually think. Now I am not delusional enough to believe that all of a sudden the lurking Freepers are suddenly going to switch over to our side, but if we can make even a couple people see that it is actually our side that is concerned about medical ethics and not the people who want to deny researchers the ability to find cures to serious illnesses then we are making progress in the right direction.

I applaud Jack Rabbit for his very powerful post.

7. Terrific letter
Doubt the big fat turd will read it but some of his listeners might. Some of his listeners might also have friends or family with PD. Will they think his remarks funny? I doubt it.

I've never taken anything Limpballs says seriously. But many do and perhaps he crossed the line this time and offended even some of his staunchest supporters.

9. I suspect many in his audience are owed that apology as well...
I can only hope that he hears from them with their concerns voiced even fractionally as well as you have here.

K&R, Jack Rabbit. I am very upset over this and the pain it causes for those who suffer from Parkinson's and the many related degenerative neurologic diseases(and their supportive friends and loved ones)

10. He will say anything for * but believes in nothing
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 10:07 PM by djohnson
That cigar might as well be *'s... well you know.



Conversely most Republicans support stem cell research including Nancy Reagan and others. But * is just a campaign to find voting pools so it's not surprising that he betrays on his own people. People mean nothing to *.

Polling, advertising and grass-roots organizing, the pillars of a strong election campaign, now spill over routinely to congressional battles - embryonic stem cell research among them.

The embryonic stem cell issue flared during the 2004 presidential campaign and may soon come before the House. Republicans who dissent from President Bush's policy are circulating a poll designed to show they have the party's voters on their side even if many fellow GOP lawmakers are not.

The survey, taken among 800 Republican voters nationwide, showed 90 percent job approval for President Bush and 88 percent favorable support for Republicans in the House. Both levels far exceed recent results of surveys taken of voters of all political persuasions.

At the same time, 57 percent of those surveyed in the Republican-only poll said they favored embryonic stem cell research, with 40 percent opposed. On a follow-up question, 54 percent said it was more of a research issue, while 40 percent said it was more of an abortion issue.

"Anytime you see a poll like that, that's a strong preference," said Rep. Mike Castle, R-Del., the leading supporter of stem cell research. "Members of Congress understand polls. I think the other thing that's important is who takes polls."

12. How can anyone belittle a person with an illness?
I don't believe that honest-to-goodness real people would ever say anything like that about a helpless
human being. It broke my heart to see Michael J. Fox in such a bad condition; but, he's a fighter, and he's doing what he can to help others. That would be a remarkable thing if only Rush Limbaugh would
follow suit; but I won't hold my breath until he does. :dunce: :dunce:

Excellent document, my friend...

I just spent 5 months out of town caring for a Dad with advanced Alzheimer's while Mom battled stomach cancer. Cancer won. But I was there.

May Rush someday know the pain of losing someone to a debilitating disease.

Rush, you drug-addled gasbag!!!

20. Jack Rabbit, I hope that stem cell research
can go forward, and help your wife, and countless other victims of horrible diseases that rob people of their health, and causes a terrible emotional toll on them, and their loved ones. To mock a sufferer of Parkinson's, who already suffers the anguish of having the disease, only proves that Limbaugh has a shallow, petty, vindictive mind.

Your wife is fortunate to have you in her corner, but I imagine that it has not been an easy struggle for the two of you. To know that the possibility of a cure is shot down by a relatively small group of smug, self-righteous hypocrites, is beyond cruelty, and borders on sadism.

I hope that we can gain one, or both houses of Congress next month, and if nothing else, stop the more destructive impulses of the corrupt group now in power. Limbaugh should be discarded on the rubbish heap of worthless blowhards, who possess no talents of their own, but make a living catering to the spite festering in the hearts of others who likewise find it easier to destroy others, than to create things themselves.

Blessings to you and your wife.

for speaking so well, for so many. Limbaugh has shamed himself but, hopefully, inadvertantly shed light on the need for research. Recommended earlier.

26. Dear Jack Rabbit
First of all you and your wife have my utmost sympathies, I'm so sorry to hear of the suffering of your wife and yours as well, for disease affects the entire family who all care so much for their own and it hurts them very much as well, I hope that someday this ridiculous clan of evil bastards will be gone and we can stop living in the 12th century where the faux christians that hold sway over us feel we should be, back to bleeding people, applying leeches, etc.

There ARE ways of making his pay. We have done it, Takebackthemedia.com boycotted Limbaugh very effectively along with MANY DU'RS who spread the word. When we boycotted it was because Poloidnal CYSTBOY (and gee wouldn't it be bad if that CYST somehow metastisized into something more malignant than Limbaugh himself?) had called all anti war protesters "commies, marxists, and unamerican", and being a Veteran this pissed me off mightily, so with others here I organized a LARGE boycott..

He lost Radio Shack, See's Candies, AmTrack, Red Lobster, Geico, and LOTS of other corps advertising dollars, about 4 or 5 major businesses dropped their ad dollars the SAME AFTERNOON the boycott was begun, it was just that quick. I have a feeling we easily cost him hundreds of thousands if not in the Million dollar range or more.

I believe it's time for another boycott, and there couldn't be a better time - I wish I could help again, but am too busy at this time with another project (maybe after that I can), if I did have the Time THIS POST by you would be all I needed to go after that bastard again.

Within days of boycotting this sorry excuse for a human being I was on both the O'Reilly show AND Scarborough's and we got some great shots in on this guy and them all -- FOLEY was one of the guests on Scarborough, much to my disgust, during that same show I demanded as a Vietnam Era Veteran that Limbaugh RELEASE his ENLISTMENT PAPERS, to show his patriotism for his country. Many people started demanding that afterwards, and if it was possible to SHAME this bag of Excrement we may have done that, but doubtful since he has no shame.. but it was also effective and frightened them.

You have to take away their MONEY to FORCE them to act Human, even Gandi knew that.

If anyone has the time to take up the Torch and begin another boycott of all of Limbaugh's advertisers, I would think there is no better time after his remarks, his VILE attitude towards suffering. I wish Michael J. Fox would SUE him for this.

If anyone does take up a Boycott I hope that they do it for your wife and those like her.

Once again, you have my deepest sympathies, and I will send healing thoughts at every opportunity for you and spouse. Hang in there, Research is being done in OTHER COUNTRIES, More PROGRESSIVE countries and there COULD be a break through at any time.

For your wife's sake I hope it is soon.

All the best to you, and thank you for your bravery, thoughtfulness and wonderful posts here.

29. Ha Ha!
Thanks! Yeah, if Colmes is a liberal that represents US fighting these bastards then I'll eat BOTH FEET. Not only does the guy look like he should be part of the Adams Family, he's a total wuss..

I think I could make that guy cry in about two minutes, especially if I stood on his feet and pulled his head off like my grandma used to do on Sundays when we wanted a chicken dinner.

He's propped up as a liberal, and I get so sick of that, wouldn't it be nice to have an actual show were guys like Me and American Stranger could invite Right Wingers on and EAT THEM ALIVE? :)

I'd do it in a heartbeat, as a matter of fact I called and left a message with Scarborough's producer telling him that he should hire me or some other Pit Bull type of Liberal and let us tear some of these right wingers to pieces with simple FACTS, that I thought it would be a unique concept, a show that might pull some high ratings in..

He never called back, but I expected that, besides we already have Colmes to whine for us :)

Appreciate the comments, we do our best!

45. Coupla years ago, maybe 2002, I think
Here's the link to the video, I'd posted it when Foley became a known boy licker and outed for his perversions, he's one of Scarborough's pals I guess, maybe he covers for Joe the Scar's dead intern, and Joe covered his indescretions with BOYS.. funny thing is, is that the Lobbyist pal of my wife, told me before I went on the show that Foley was KNOWN for his Boy Toys, the younger the better, and it was PLURAL..

SO when Foley comes on, I got a BIG ICK signal, and I guess we were all right about him :)

Link: http://www.tbtmradio.com/video/tbtmfoley.wmv Windows Media, should load fine, lots of people watched it before.

Hey, THANKS for the compliment on the Rove DVD, guess it's old news now that Rove's been Indicted, in Secret, a LONG time ago :)

Just pulling some legs...

Glad you like, wait until my book is finished, I'm gonna change the world with this work, and already have some Hollywood interest, with any luck I'll have a KILLER book cover too, one that will sell a million as his work has before, gonna meet with the artist on Halloween and try and convince him.

Wish me luck, and thanks!

27. Well, it bothers ME
that Limbaugh preaches against the scientific progress being made in the area of stem cell research! He uses a medical science approach (going to rehab) to get out of a drug charge, but preaches against medical science that can save many (other) people's lives. He will undoubtedly change his tune as soon as he needs a stem cell-related treatment.

Calling Michael J. Fox, a good but very ill man, a "fake" is just sour icing on the Hypocrisy Cake. Sickening. :puke:

30. You are the better man, Jack! Expect no apologies from the likes of
Flush Limpballs. His ENTIRE career--perhaps even his life--is predicated on vicious lies and their dissemination. You never see Flush in a fair one-on-one. He is incapable. As for apology? It takes a much bigger man than Flush to apologize. And I am not talking about the width and girth of his ass. I'm talking about character, of which Flush Limpballs has little.

32. So incensed you wrote a letter to the editor. Gee. Wow.
The guy bombs your car, rips the dress off your wife, sets your children on fire...and you're so angry you wrote a letter to the editor. Oooooh, I'll bet Limbaugh is shaking in his boots.

When are you people going to quit grousing about the school bully and freaking TAKE HIM ON?

Even if he doesn't appear in public, never goes into any venue he doesn't completely control, hides like a rat...you could force him to face his lies and weaseling, if you had the smarts and the courage.

Let's put it this way. TP'ing his house and overturning his garbage cans would be several orders of magnitude greater than writing a letter to the editor. And no one has had the guts even to do that.

102. You want to get Capone....er, Limbaugh? Here's what ya do.
First, you and your volunteers tail him. Twenty-four seven. With camcorders, preferably with night vision and shotgun miks so you can see and hear him as much as possible.

Second, you plot out his patterns. Where and when does he go for his Oxycontin drop, his gay porn, his Klan rallies.

Third, when you know where he shows, you Hayduke him. At the Klan rally you slash his tires and pour sugar in his gas tank. You record him (from a safe distance) as you establish that he was at a Klan rally; that wasn't a circus tent, that was Limbaugh in his robes.

Or you jam the elevator he's taking to his meeting with his dominatrix. He can't escape the elevator through that little hatch, no matter how much he slathers his body with butter. So he's there for hours, and you alert the media, and provide them with the tapes you've recorded of Lard Boy getting whipped. You interview him as the elevator is finally un-jammed.

Or if you find the black mistress he's turned his back on, with all your evidence collecting, you enlist her support and bring her to national attention.

If you don't know the meaning of the verb "to Hayduke," look up the books on amazon.com.

This is how you catch a rat. Not throwing verbal insults that he can, and has, shrugged off. And not telling all your friends "Limbaugh sucks" and watching their heads slowly nod in agreement.

49. As Symbolman points out above
He organized a sponsor boycott of Limbaugh a few years ago through his website.

Personally, I don't take Limbaugh seriously. As I said in the root post, he doesn't change minds. His regular listeners are already convinced and nothing you or I will say will persuade them otherwise. They will vote Republican even if Bush murders their children and they don't really need Rush Limbaugh to persuade them to do so.

Three or four times a week, somebody who listens to Limbaugh ("so you won't have to") post some outrageous thing he says. Sometimes I will put a sarcastic remark on the thread, most of the time I simply chuckle sardonically and move on.

I believe in democracy. To me, that means supporting a set of guaranteed civil liberties that encourage citizens to speak out on civic affairs. The dark side of that is that we put up with pornography and Rush Limbaugh. I am willing to put up with those things so I can say that Bush and Cheney are a war criminals who should impeached and removed from office at the earliest opportunity.

78. What the fuck is your problem?
"The guy bombs your car, rips the dress off your wife, sets your children on fire...and you're so angry you wrote a letter to the editor."


First of all, that line is the biggest bunch of crap I've seen here in a while. To compare a violent crime and no reaction to it, to the Limbaugh's comments and a LTTE is out of line and for that alone you owe the OP an apology.

There are all kinds of ways to take him on. Publisizing his ridiculous comments in one of them.

Since you seem to have all the answers on how to go after that sleezebag Limbaugh, please provide them instead of just posting snarky bullshit that does absolutely no good.

103. See my "Capone" comment above.
You might also wish to look up the "Hayduke" books as mentioned in that post.

And I'd add that "that line" is exactly what Limbaugh has been doing. He has been a hardcore promoter of the Bush regime for ages. He still is. Even the drug abuse line doesn't hurt him any more. He is Teflon. The only way to destroy Teflon is to heat it to several thousand degrees until it evaporates.

As you may recall (if you ever got away from your computer with your fiery letters to the editor) in the movie "V for Vendetta" there was a journalist character clearly modeled on Limbaugh. Did V write a letter to the editor? Yes, but only after killing the son of a bitch.

I wouldn't go that far; it's impossible to embarass a corpse. But with dedicated supporters, it would be possible to collect evidence to end Limbaugh's career and make him the biggest negative example for anyone who hoped to follow in his shoes.

My point is, none of you want to take effective action against the right wing, any more than Kerry carried through on recounting votes and investigating fraud in 2004. And your reluctance is why the Republicans will win the 2006 election, and the 2008 election, and won't worry about 2012 because they'll have suspended elections by then.

33. Limbaugh's personal experiences did not translate to sensitivity
Limbaugh is famous for railing on about diseases he does not understand and labeling them as bogus. He's equated ADD to toenail fungus, stating that they are equally unimportant. Prior to his own problem, he stamped drug addicts as losers who made their own decisions and deserving of maximum prosecution of the law.

I always assumed that his callous insensitivity was due simply to never having experienced any of these first hand. I was certain that if he had raised an ADD child, witnessed the despair of drug dependency, or suffered the misfortune of a physical disability, then he would have an awakening to reality. Instead, he used his money and influence to wiggle his way out of any repercussions for his drug problems and was able to afford very expensive surgery to correct a hearing disorder. And what did he gain from these experiences? Nothing.

Limbaugh's insensitivity, clearly, is not because of a lack of experience.

He's simply a horrible person.

36. If news that comes out on Rush is true, drugs, sex, and tobacco
Edited on Tue Oct-24-06 08:17 AM by higher class
occupy much of his time. No time to learn by reading about diseases. His other kick in life seems to be decimating compassion on issues people of all politics are sensitive about.

That's not good politics, from any perspective.

I sincerely hope Rush gets a debilitating disease, and soon.

And I hate him a little more for making me wish for something so evil.

is why ANYONE with half a brain and/or even a modicum of common sense would ever listen to this moron, much less take anything he says seriously . . .

are there really THAT many complete idiots in this country? . . . guess so . . .

65. What's really frightening is that there are
a couple of high school teachers in my local singles social group who listen to Limpballs religiously and are always talking admiringly about him, discussing that day's show, at our meetings and activities. These are supposedly well-educated, intelligent men; I simply cannot understand why they do such a thing. I hope they don't subject their classes to the "wit and wisdom" of Flush Limpballs, I'd be pretty pissed off if they did and I was a parent of one of their students.

Limbaugh sees in others what he sees in himself. When he looks in the mirror he sees a fraud. He sees an ugly, hollow person who would do anything or say anything to protect his benefactor; the man who made all of his big tax cuts possible and keeps doing enough stupid things to keep his comedy show on the air year after year.

Rush Limbaugh IS the worst person in the world.

Great post, Jack Rabbit. Whether he sees it or not isn't important. That you've defended all those with this crippling disease IS important. :toast: Here's to 'ya!

53. When I'd heard about his remarks yesterday ...
... all I could think of was how he had managed to turn off yet another segment of his formerly-loyal audience members who were as outraged as you were.

That's always the way it goes with people like this -- eventually, their own arrogrance, stupidity and lack of humanity brings them down.

Good thoughts and prayers go out to you and your wife ...

54. Speaking as someone with Parkinson's genes...
Edited on Tue Oct-24-06 12:55 PM by nickdisagrees
These accusations are seriously disgusting.

I watched my grandfather struggle with the disease for 18 of the 21 years of my life that he was alive (I'm now 22, he died last year), and watched him slowly and painfully lose his ability to speak, to feed himself, to walk, and to play the music to which he had devoted his entire life. To imply that Parkinson's can be used by ANYONE as a BENEFIT for themselves is one of the most absurd and offensive things that can be said.

I don't want an apology from Limbaugh. Watching him show some sign of humanity is nothing compared to watching him maintain his current facade of indifference, while knowing that he will have to live with and stand by his words and actions forever. I don't want him to take them back, because there is no forgiving him, and no one should be asked to do such a thing.

60. My grandfather died of Parkinson's
and I have Essential Tremor, a non-Parkinson's movement disorder. I thought about this yesterday, an unusually bad day for my tremor. I was sitting in a meeting, shaking so badly I was embarassed and unable to concentrate well. And then I thought, "And Rush and his ilk would accuse me of faking."
And would show no sympathy for the terrible suffering my grandfather went through.

This man, and his "dittoheads" have no shame. And no heart.

Email or call the local station near you on this list of stations that carry his radio show, and tell them that if they support Rush Limbaugh's cruel insensitivities, you and everyone you know will no longer support their staion and sponsers.

69. Michael J. Fox interview on St. Louis station
KMOV's Ray Preston sits down and talks with actor and advocate Michael J. Fox. They talk about Fox's career, his passion for his cause, and his future.

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlER2dj4YyQ

Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1T7GXCrQI0Y


These videos probably deserve a thread of their own.


FURL!

71. Damned straight
Although an apology from Limbaugh would require guilt. Guilt necessitates a conscience. Limbaugh has neither.

76. "Mr."????
I don't know, but it does not feel right to allow the respect of calling him "Mr." I don't think he fits that category, its like calling Bush "President".

101. Dammit, it's being freeped!
The accompanying article goes on to say how Fox is stumping for Claire McCaskill and Ben Cardin, and calls the ads effective. Guess the freepers don't like that.

88. The day Limbaugh apologizes on DU of all places will be...
... when hell freezes over.

The day that Limbaugh apologizes on his radio show ... probably won't happen any time soon; he'll hope that it just blows over.

But here's hoping for that apology. He needs to make it, after making fun of Mr. Fox like that. I have more respect for Michael J. Fox than Limbaugh, as Michael seems to demonstrate more integrity than Rush. Perhaps Michael should run for political office himself.... or strongly support someone who is.

Mark.

91. And
a big DITTO to this statement! :rofl:

I know of a radio personality who has a serious problem with prescription drugs; while I can't stand him, I wish him the best fortune in kicking his habit.

92. Maybe HE shakes when he's off his meds,
but that's just withdrawal.

94. I'm Mainly Undecided About All This
     Maybe Californians can understand the problems that
Limbaugh gives them.  I think that the whole problem of drug
use is a complicated one.
     I think maybe the main problem is lack of openness in
the media, and we should wait for the problem to work itself
out.
     I think at this time, it's California that is central to
the electoral process.  Mainly after that is the likely
situation to wind up the Democrats success.  Good Luck.

96. Even If He DID Apologize, I Wouldn't Respect Him
Edited on Tue Oct-24-06 09:13 PM by casus belli
I would accept the apology and move on from this particular foul epsiode, but he does this a little too often for one apology to give him a break.

As an aside, I know what you meant...I'm just sayin'. And kudos to you for a well-written post.

98. Rush's Non-Apology
"Michael J. Fox has entered the political arena with his commercial attacks -- which includes false information about Senator Talent and Michael Steele in Maryland -- and I am not going to follow the script that says we're not allowed to comment on things said by victims."

"All stem cell research is legal today in Missouri. Jim Talent does not seek to criminalize it, as Michael J. Fox asserts in his television commercial. The truth is, Amendment 2 would put human cloning in the Missouri Constitution. Michael J. Fox is participating in this disinformation campaign."

"I would argue that Mr. Fox is damaging what has traditionally been a bipartisan effort to address and cure illnesses. And that's the primary point here -- Democrats are politicizing diseases and illnesses."

"I don't care what anybody says; it is unseemly, it is exploitative, and it is downright mean to mislead people who suffer from horrible diseases that there is a cure around the corner -- if only Republicans could be defeated."

"There is one Rush Limbaugh story in the Drive-By Media, and that is: 'Mean-spirited, extremist, racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe.'"

100. Limbaugh started this crap Monday and then did damage control
all day Tuesday. His "off the meds" remark wasn't the worst of it. That's what he wants everyone to think is all he said. He started the whole thing by accusing Micheal Fox of acting and exaggerating. He even used the words "moving all over the place". Limbaugh did quite the setup: playing an audio clip of the ad, and asking if the audience could guess what Fox was doing visually as he spoke. "He's either acting or off his meds" is a pretty close paraphrase of what the compassionate Mr.Limbaugh said. It was only after "the harmless fuzzball" received calls and emails that he dropped the accusations and went with the "off the meds" approach. It was very apparent that LimBlah at first wanted to smear Fox as a phony who was acting out the effects of PD. It just didn't work out like Rushbo wanted it to.

Jack Rabbit, you were right to write this post. My best to you and your wife. I can only guess what it must be like for you and her. Rush Limbaugh(spit on ground after saying that name), who claims his talent is "on loan from God", owes you, your wife, Mr. Fox, America and God many apologies.

104. God Almighty! Is there NOTHING the Republicans won't do to get elected?
Since the answer is so obvious, there's no reason to ask if they have no shame.
