Limbaugh Comments Draw Fire … Again

August 13, 2014

On his Tuesday (8/12) Premiere Networks syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh made his critics’ heads explode once again, this time for comments he made on the suicide death of comedian/actor Robin Williams and the “pop culture media’s” obsession with celebrity news. When a caller to his program asked if he thought there was politics behind the round-the-clock media barrage following Williams’ suicide Limbaugh responded, “I think there was, on the part of media and Hollywood, genuine affection for the guy that is driving it, but there is politics. If you notice the coverage is focused on how much he had, but it wasn’t enough. He had everything, everything that you would think would make you happy. But it didn’t. Now, what is the left’s worldview in general? What is it? If you had to attach not a philosophy but an attitude to a leftist worldview, it’s one of pessimism and darkness, sadness. They’re never happy, are they? They’re always angry about something. No matter what they get, they’re always angry … He had it all, but he had nothing. He made everybody else laugh but was miserable inside. I mean, it fits a certain picture, or a certain image that the left has.” Read the full context of Limbaugh’s original comments in a transcript from his show posted HERE. Then check out an update from today’s show (8/13), where Rush fires back at “what the left — and particularly the leftist media — is attempting to do in twisting my comments about the Robin Williams suicide” HERE.
