When did Rush add the ‘man-made’ part to his denial script?

A decade ago, Limbaugh had a grand time mocking climate scientists (his favorite target was of course Al Gore) for their ‘hysteria’ saying that the earth was warming. “The  whole thing is a hoax” he shouted across the socialist AM radio spectrum. “There is no warming” he shouted.

Vanity Fair listened to him in 2005 as his voice dripped with scorn for those warning about the consequences of a changing climate.:

“Even though quite a few scientists are now backtracking on their once-dire predictions of melting ice caps and worldwide flooding, Algore and a few hard-line doomsayers are sticking to their thermostats.” . . . . Similarly, Limbaugh scoffed in See, I Told You So, “Despite the hysterics of a few pseudo-scientists, there is no reason to believe in global warming”.

Now, here’s Rush in 2011 in a headline at his website:

The Manmade Global Warming Hoax Thrives on Faith, Not Facts

Notice the ‘manmade’ he’s slipped in there, shamelessly adjusting the script. It had to be changed of course, since it’s gotten a little harder to deny warming outright. His words this time start with the assumption that the warming is real – just not manmade. (He used the word ‘manmade’ in his little rant seven times. I counted. That’s not by accident.)

And still they listen to him . . .

Rush Limbaugh, that son of privilege and college drop out, knows nothing about the issue, cares nothing about the issue, but he knows what sells hemorrhoid creams and survival kits.

  1. Limbaugh is a tool, and not the kind you build a birdhouse with. Here’s a few other words of wisdom from the father of “Add some fear and shout it from a radio show, some idiot is bound to buy it.”

    “That cracker made a lot of African-American millionaires.” –Rush Limbaugh, on the death of longtime New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, July 13, 2010

    “Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.” –Rush Limbaugh, Jan. 19, 2007

    “[Obama] wouldn’t have been voted president if he weren’t black. Somebody asked me over the weekend why does somebody earn a lot of money have a lot of money, because she’s black. It was Oprah. No, it can’t be. Yes, it is. There’s a lot of guilt out there, show we’re not racists, we’ll make this person wealthy and big and famous and so forth…. If Obama weren’t black he’d be a tour guide in Honolulu or he’d be teaching Saul Alinsky constitutional law or lecturing on it in Chicago.” –Rush Limbaugh, July 6, 2010

    “The ocean will take care of this on its own if it was left alone and left out there. It’s natural. It’s as natural as the ocean water is.” –Rush Limbaugh, on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, May 3, 2010

    “Guess what? Faisal Shahzad is a registered Democrat. I wonder if his SUV had an Obama sticker on it.” –Rush Limbaugh, lying about the failed Times Square car bomber, who is not registered to vote, May 4, 2010

    “Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.” –Rush Limbaugh


  2. What else is new with this fat asshole?

    He’s another phony just like Beck. Both made for each other.


    • I JUST retroactively spammed a comment that appeared here for a few minutes. My reply is below and I’m leaving it here so the subject commenter can see it.
      We won’t be listening anymore to you either Wayne. I’m banning you as soon as I can figure out how.

      We maintain a level of civility here, especially toward each other.

      By the way pal, as for climate change, beleive who you want. I go with the Penatagon and NASA.


  3. We’ll work with word press to get a permanent ban on you. You have about as much class as a fly on a toilet seat. Go troll somewhere else.


    • Sorry about that Don. What a creep. I’ve marked him as spam, but he doesn’t have a proper site. I do have his email though. So I go to wordpress?


      • You did the right thing, marking him as spam. Once in awhile I’ll get the low life’s like him, that make crude comments, they don’t have a blog of their own, and to sum it up Moe, they are just trolls, who have never else better to do, and some are actually get paid to that shit.

        I would e-mail wordpress, just to let them know what an ass he is.


  4. Or you could leave him up for a while and we could word beat him for a few posts before he becomes tiresome. It’s a good for honing the writing skills, plus some minor amusement for a second, winding him up to a blathering frenzy before blocking his IP.

    But most folks have a dynamic IP, so next time they reboot they get anew one.

    Go to Settings>Discussion> and scroll to the bottom where you’ll see a couple of filters you can implement


    • Great idea Doug – and another new bit of phraseology from you, which will enter my vocabulary post haste. “Word beat” as a verb; just excellent!

      Thanks for the suggestion – I’ll do that.


  5. Yes, Limbaugh has no standards, and will say anything to promote his narrative. no matter how false it is.


    • Welcome Mickey – seeing that name coupled with Murphy gets me all weepy and sentimental and ‘home’sick (even though I was born in New York!)

      And you are right, and Mr. Limbaugh’s lack of standards has brought him enormous wealth. People are such suckers.
