This is What Rush Limbaugh Thinks About People Who use Drugs

by BuzzFlash Sunday, Oct. 12, 2003 at 12:27 AM

Rush will rant on for sure, after proclaiming that sessions with Jerry Falwell have recommitted him to Christ. He will be “reborn.” He will “triumph over adversity.” He will be embraced by Bush as a true patriot and the betrayal of America will continue, leaving in its wake a trail of brazen lies and the ancient ruins of democracy.

October 11, 2003






This is What Rush Limbaugh Thinks About People Who use Drugs: And What the Faux President Thinks About the Demagogue Drug Addicted Populist

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Part I: The Faux, Demagogue Drug Addicted Populist on Drug Users

"We're going to let you destroy your life. We're going to make it easy and then all of us who accept the responsibilities of life and don't destroy our lives on drugs, we'll pay for whatever messes you get into."

-- Rush Limbaugh show, Dec. 9, 1993

"I'm appalled at people who simply want to look at all this abhorrent behavior and say people are going to do drugs anyway let's legalize it. It's a dumb idea. It's a rotten idea and those who are for it are purely 100 percent selfish."

-- Rush Limbaugh show, Dec 9, 1993

"If (Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders) wants to legalize drugs, send the people who want to do drugs to London and Zurich, and let's be rid of them.

-- Rush Limbaugh show, Dec 9, 1993

"There's nothing good about drug use. We know it. It destroys individuals. It destroys families. Drug use destroys societies. Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country. And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. And the laws are good because we know what happens to people in societies and neighborhoods which become consumed by them. And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up.

"What this says to me is that too many whites are getting away with drug use. Too many whites are getting away with drug sales. Too many whites are getting away with trafficking in this stuff. The answer to this disparity is not to start letting people out of jail because we're not putting others in jail who are breaking the law. The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too."

-- Rush Limbaugh show, Oct. 5, 1995

Part II: The Faux President on the Faux, Demagogue Drug Addicted Populist, Rush Limbaugh

"Rush is a great American. I am confident he can overcome any obstacles he faces right now,” George W. Bush was quoted in the Washington Post as telling his staff the other day after Limbaugh’s racist comments on ESPN and the first revelations that Rush was an illegal drug user.

Why was this Bush statement leaked to the press after Limbaugh was exposed on ESPN as a whining bigot who had to cut down the accomplishments of a stellar black quarterback to make white men feel good about themselves? Why did Bush make this statement when he must have known that Limbaugh was under investigation for popping thousands and thousands of illegal pills?

Because Bush needs Rush to spin the White House lies. Without the daily demagogic drivel of Rush and the FOX News White House propaganda operation, the Bush Cartel would collapse like a lanced soufflé. Bush would support Rush as a fine American if he were caught passing military secrets to Osama bin Laden. Bush would call Roger Ailes a great patriot if he were caught in bed with a goat and a 12-year-old boy. Without these two con artist clowns, the Bush Cartel would be exposed and many of its lead board members face prosecution under whatever patriotic regime replaced them. They are the vital link to keeping a large percentage of Americans misinformed and angry at the WRONG people for the woes brought upon them by the ineptness and greed of the Bush Cartel.

So Rush will get his “rehabilitation treatment” – and no doubt the Noelle Bush special treatment from the courts in Florida. Every drug user deserves jail and aids terrorists, except for the propaganda shills and relatives of the Bush Cartel, according to Rush, Jeb, and George W.

Here is what one of our readers had to say about why Bush needs Rush almost as badly as he needs Karl “White House Treasongate” Rove:



Buzz:

We all know that if (name your liberal here) was being investigated for buying huge quantities of black market prescription drugs, Rush and his fellow right-wing ranters would be having a field day.

However, with the investigation into Rush, nary a peep has been heard from any commentator right or left, minus the obscene Wall Street Journal editorial letting Rush off the hook before he's even been formally charged with a crime.

Wake up, lefties! Rush is CRITICAL to Bush's re-election plans. If Rush is seen to be a fraud to his listeners, they may choose to believe the rest of the right-wing agenda is a fraud as well, or at the very least hypocritical. In other words, the Bush administration can't afford to lose a single vote from its core constituency -- angry, middle-aged, white male businessmen.

Rush's lame response to the allegations of the National Enquirer, "I don't know what this is yet," is criminal. He's trying to falsely give his listeners the impression that this is some sting operation engineered to make him look bad. If that's so, then he should tell his listeners the National Enquirer is full of it. But he doesn't, does he?

What I fear will happen is that Florida, where Rush resides, will again play a key, dirty role in Republican presidential politics unless someone makes a stink. With a phone call, Governor Jeb Bush can probably have this entire affair covered up indefinitely, telling politically like-minded investigators to not bring charges or in anyway diminish the stature of the biggest Republican blowhard that ever came down the pike.

Ugly as it may make some people feel, Rush CANNOT be left off the hook on this. The heat needs to be applied so this story is NOT dropped and gets much bigger play than it has. Rush cannot be allowed to spend decades taking the cheapest pot shots possible for political gain and then be allowed to continued when the soapbox he has been standing on is in reality a bin of illegal drugs.
