Not that there's anything wrong with that...

But just sharing

Bunch of celebrities on collaged together on it - Limbaugh is very big and on the upper left-hand side.

:rofl:

Just another PEDOPHILE Republican


In mid-2004 Rush and his third wife, Marta Limbaugh, filed for divorce. A British source has recently learned that Marta agreed to avoid disclosing Rush's closeted homosexuality, or penchant for child pornography, in exchange for a hefty divorce settlement. Please note the thing here is not the GAY but the PEDOPHILE. It is the way the BFEE uses kids to blackmail politicians and tools like Limballs Remember Jeff Gannon

32. He's not gay, he's a pederast. Gays do not prey on little boys.
They have adult relationships like we all do. At least that's my understanding. I don't desire sex with children, male or female, and neither to people properly labeled as gay.

39. Er, *some* gay men *do* prey on little boys
NAMBLA, ever heard of it?

I know you mean well, but gay people aren't saints (I know, I'm one)(gay, that is, not a saint).

2. Ooh. That might be reallly funny. Long story, but
we bought a new car vs. listening to Rush and Hannity.

Yes, American sort of, PT Cruiser. Used. My DH's radio died, he got one channel in Houston.

The new car is really going to be fun.

3. Wasn't Rush Limbaugh busted for Viagra while leaving the Dominican Republic?
The insinuation is that he is a pedophile. Isn't the DR where pigs like him go to rape children? :dem:

who with, and how old was he/she? Why hasn't any crack investigative reporter gone down to the Dominican Republic to find out? Where are the photos?

41. Yes, and yes.
He was busted coming back from the Dominican Republic with prescription drugs not in his name. I don't remember if that was one of his Oxy Contin arrests, but I do know that among the pills they found was Viagra, one pill shy of a full prescription.

And as you said, the Dominican Republic is notorious for child sex tourism.

Just saw it at Speedway on my way home tonight

wish I had a link, but I can't find anything online yet. Someone else is talking about on Randi's board, so I'm not alone in seeing it. Though they say it was the National Examiner - so I may need slightly corrected.

When's their "Who's Straight?" issue coming out?


the point here is insinuating ridicule or it being considered negative that someone is Gay - and that I find insulting. And who more disgusting to imply being Gay than him... no, we don't want him.

17. National Enquirer is a tabloid, not comedy mag, also
I have no problem with gay people who actively campaign AGAINST the gay community being called out on it. I'm not saying Rush definitely IS gay (not that that matters) but if he is, he needs to stop bashing gay people. Just makes sense to me really.

18. Seems to me he is more likely a pedophile.. which has nothing to do
with actual sexuality or consenting adults in a healthy relationship. Seems to me that he has a sick perverted problem in the targeting of innocent children for his jollies... I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere in his life he wasn't molested, and is now the molester. He has a problem if he is having sex with children.

25. It seems to me there's been too much of an attempt in whatever media
to conflate pedophilia with homosexuality. If Limbaugh prefers little boys, he is a pedophile, NOT a homosexual. Yet many in the media use the terms interchangeably. When the sex scandal in the Catholic Church was prevalent in the news, they kept talking about homosexuality in the Church, as if that was an apt descriptor for preying on the children. I think that was one way to whip up people's anger at homosexuals. Education is important in this -- I would say to someone who confuses the two that a father who abuses his daughters is no more a heterosexual than a priest who abuses altar boys is a homosexual. They are pedophiles. Period.

And we need to call the media on it when they conflate the two.

20. It's the hypocrisy, stupid.
It's not that he's gay (if he's gay), it's the sheer delusional hypocrisy of him if it were true. See Larry Craig, Ted Haggard, etc. These men aren't despicable because they're gay, but because they espouse anti-gay bigotry while being gay. It's a window into the tortured soul of the false puritan.

21. Well, there's no disputing the FACT that Rush Limbaugh is a draft dodger
He used his 'anal pimple' to weasel out of service to the United States of America.

Then he became one of the many loud Republicon Chickenhawks, advocating that other people go off to far-away lands to fight and die for Oil Companies & Republicon corporate War Profits...

So for anyone paying attention, that FACT right there undermines any shred of credibility this overpaid radical right-wing hate and propaganda monger might have had.

It proves that, like all Republicon Pharisees, Rush is a hypocrite.

22. Smoking gun link to the Limbaugh Dominican Republic story
http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0706062rush1.html

Rush Limbaugh's Dominican Stag Party
29 Viagra pills, two "24" producers among radio star's all-male crew

"JULY 6--Rush Limbaugh was traveling with four other men--including the producers of the hit show "24"--when he was detained over a mislabeled bottle of Viagra found in his luggage during a Customs search. A Department of Homeland security passenger manifest shows that Limbaugh and his four buddies flew from the Dominican Republic on a Gulfstream IV jet owned by Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates his radio program. Limbaugh returned to Palm Beach, Florida on June 26 with Joel Surnow, "24"'s co-creator and executive producer and Howard Gordon, another of the Fox hit's executive producers (Hollywood agent Jeffrey Benson was also part of the Limbaugh quintet). With all those guys in tow, it is unclear what Limbaugh needed with those 29 100mg Viagra pills. The passenger manifest was among several documents released today by the Palm Beach County State's Attorney in response to a TSG open records request. Included in the material released were a copy of the handwritten statement Limbaugh provided investigators after he was detained upon the discovery of the impotency drug. An affidavit sworn three days later by Limbaugh was also released. In that document, Limbaugh explains that the Viagra "was intended for my exclusive use" and that the drug had been prescribed in the name of his drug treatment doctor, Steven Strumwasser, "to further maintain and protect my privacy."


I hope he wasn't hurting children but the location they traveled to and his viagra suggests they weren't there to study the bible. This makes me hate the show "24" more than I already did.

23. I'm quite sure Limpdick has a mountain of skeletons in his closet.
No one can be that smarmy and filled with hate and still be mentally healthy*. So far he's dodged the career-ending bullet, although for anyone else, getting busted for drugs while rallying against drugs users would be more than enough. But I feel his day is coming, there's too much there not to have some of it come out.

*mentally imbalanced here refers to his inability to come to grips with his orientations, not the orientation itself. not to mention the other allegations he's had, like the pedophilia charges.

I think most homophobes probably have those inclinations and being a nasty bigot is their way of dealing with what they have been told their whole lives is an "abomination". Homophobia is a result of self-hatred. Ok that's my amateur psychologist musing for the day.
