LOL, Limbaugh's Latest AIDS Rant
« on: January 20, 2011, 08:51:00 AM »
Sure is good to know that straight people in the US don't have AIDS because they're not promiscuous.  What a tool.

Advocate

Quote
In his latest antigay rant, Rush Limbaugh suggests that the Democratic Party blames the AIDS epidemic on Ronald Reagan because they want people to believe he had the disease and spread it himself through gay sex.

On Monday’s Rush Limbaugh Show, the conservative talk radio host said: “These people blamed AIDS on Reagan. Sound familar? They blamed homelessness on Reagan -- you know why they blamed AIDS on Reagan? Because he didn't care. Because he never delivered a speech about it. And because of that, AIDS was spread. They actually wanted us to believe that Reagan had the disease, was sneaking into gay people's houses at night, and impregnating them with the disease and running out.”

In 2004, while complaining that Reagan had been unfairly attacked for failing to prevent the AIDS epidemic, he said that AIDS activists said it was “only a matter of time before it spreads to the heterosexual community… nd of course it -- it hasn't. It -- it didn't, and it hasn't, other than in Africa.”

He said in Africa, AIDS is spread by promiscuity.

Nothing he says suprises me anymore , he is a right wingnut shock jock who makes big bucks saying jerky things . The sad part is so many people take him serious as a political leader and believe his sad rants .

I think we haven't heard the last out of the Republican party about cutting services for people with what they call preventative diseases , that's what all of this is coming down too just wait and see .

I agree. I try to keep in mind that Rush and the other talking heads make their money by saying things that are provocative. It doesn't matter whether it is true so long as it gets people talking and tuning in. Rush is a jackass but a wealthy one because he knows how to play to the lowest common denominator.

House Votes to Repeal Healthcare Law

Washington (CNN) -- The House of Representatives voted to repeal the Obama administration's signature health-care legislation Wednesday evening, a vote the newly elected Republican majority called a fulfillment of their No. 1 campaign promise.
The bill, dubbed the "Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act," passed 245-189. Three Democrats joined a unanimous Republican caucus on the vote....

Rush seems to focus a lot on people having sex or being raped like he did here.  One of his favorite things to say is, "bend over and grab your ankles".  He says that a lot, but I see he didn't use it here. 

Why did this even come up?  Anderson Cooper certainly didn't mention Reagan in his crap show.  Did the Advocate mention it or something?  I wish Anderson would have asked Elton why he performed at Rush's 4th wedding.

IIRC, it was because he got paid a shit-load of money, the profits of which he plowed back into his AIDS Foundation.

I think Elie Wiesel used that same excuse when he was hired for a conga line at a Nuremberg rally.
