AIDS "And one of the things that -- that the -- the AIDS activists said regularly back then was, oh, this is only a matter of time before it spreads to the heterosexual community. It's only a matter of time. And they used that as -- as one of the weapons to try to get people like Reagan to start talking about it from their standpoint. And of course it -- it hasn't. It -- it didn't, and it hasn't, other than in Africa, and in Africa it is -- it is being spread not just by -- it -- it -- it's promiscuity that -- that -- that spreads this, if you want to know the truth. It's promiscuity. But it -- it hasn't made that jump to the heterosexual community." Rush Limbaugh June 9, 2004 broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show Blacks "Why should Blacks be heard? They're 12% of the population. Who the hell cares." -Rush Limbaugh ‘take that bone out of your nose and call me back.’ Rush Limbaugh Source:Notable Quotables, mrc.org Choice or Orgasms
"I think this reason why girls don't do well on multiple choice tests goes all the way back to the Bible, all the way back to Genesis, Adam and Eve. God said, 'All right, Eve, multiple choice or multiple orgasms, what's it going to be?' We all know what was chosen" (TV, Feb. 23, 1994). Citizen Service Citizen service is a repudiation of the principles upon which our country was based. We are all here for ourselves." - Condoms
"Condoms only work during the school year." Drug Abuse "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." "When you strip it all away, Jerry Garcia (former Grateful Dead guitarist) destroyed his life on drugs. And yet he's being honored, like some godlike figure. Our priorities are out of whack, folks." (well ditto heads? I bet you still love this drug addicted, law-breaking drug freek. Ever hear of 'just say no' or how by buying drugs you are supporting Osama?) Earth
"The Earth's eco-system is not fragile." Feminism
"Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society." Homeless "One of the things I want to do before I die is conduct the homeless olympics...the 10-metre shopping cart relay, the dumpster dig, and the hop, skip, and trip." Hungry Children So this is how it works, you see. If you feed them, if you feed the children, three square meals a day during the school year, how can you expect them to feed themselves in the summer? So you start out with breakfast for the kids who can't afford it, which happened when I was in junior high. I remember when it started, remember the school making a big announcement over the PA. And I'm not lying to you, I said "What the hell is this? What is this?" Opening the cafeteria at seven o'clock and it was -- it was like a Continental. It was nothing hot. It was rolls and butter and stuff like that. And then of course it expanded. And we now learned it includes dinner! In Memphis and other places during the school year. Ok, then school ends, and of course, how can we expect them to feed themselves in the summer when they haven't had to for nine months. Wanton little waifs and serfs dependent on the State. Pure and simple. Rush Source:http://crooksandliars.com/karoli/rush-limbaugh-hungry-children-are-wanton-li Indians and VD
"I don't give a hoot that [Columbus] gave some Indians a disease that they didn't have immunity against" (Ought to Be, p. 45). Iraqi Prison Abuse Exactly. Exactly my point! This is no different than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation and we're going to ruin people's lives over it and we're going to hamper our military effort, and then we are going to really hammer them because they had a good time. You know, these people are being fired at every day. I'm talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional release? You of heard of need to blow some steam off?

Michael J. Fox (Parkinson's disease) "He is exaggerating the effects of the disease. He's moving all around and shaking and it's purely an act. . . . This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox. Either he didn't take his medication or he's acting. This is the only time I've ever seen Michael J. Fox portray any of the symptoms of the disease he has. He can barely control himself."

They should get a liquor store and practice robberies" (radio; reported in the Flush Rush Quarterly, January 1993). Donovan McNabb "I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve." Nuclear Arms Reduction "The only way to reduce the number of nuclear weapons is to use them." Owls "If the owl can't adapt to the superiority of humans, screw it" (Ought to Be, p. 162). Policy (Rush's) on Contraception "Well, what would you call someone who wants us to pay for her to have sex? What would you call that woman? You'd call 'em a slut, a prostitute or whatever."

Stuck "Being stuck is a position few of us like. We want something new but cannot let go of the old - old ideas, beliefs, habits, even thoughts. We are out of contact with our own genius. Sometimes we know we are stuck; sometimes we don't. In both cases we have to DO something." Trees "The most beautiful thing about a tree is what you do after you cut it down." "We have more trees in this country today than when the Declaration of Independence was written. The wackos will tell you that's impossible." "There are more acres of forestland in America today than when Columbus discovered the continent in 1492" Rush Lies 1) Limbaugh: "Don't let the liberals deceive you into believing that a decade of sustained growth without inflation in America (in the '80s) resulted in a bigger gap between the have and the have-nots. Figures compiled by the Congressional Budget Office dispel that myth" (Limbaugh, The Way Things Ought to Be, p. 70). Reality: CBO numbers for after-tax incomes show that in 1980 the richest fifth of our country had eight times the income of the poorest fifth. By 1989, the ratio was more than 20-to-1. 2)Limbaugh: "The poorest people in America are better off than the mainstream families of Europe" (radio, 1993). Reality: The poorest 20 percent of Americans can purchase an average of $5,433 worth of goods with their income. Meanwhile, in Germany, the average person can purchase $20,610 worth of goods; in France, $19,200; in Britain, $16,730 (World Development Report 1994, published by the World Bank).
