[From “Obituary for Rush Limbaugh by Andrew Anglin”]
Up until this morning, he was probably the most influential man alive. Despite his direct influence waning, he is a man who shaped an entire generation of conservative thought, for better and worse.
He was an American icon, he was a genius, he was a sellout and a glutton who wasn’t willing to do the right thing when it was hard.
As an adult reflecting on my childhood, I’ve come to believe that much of my brain’s wiring was influenced by Rush Limbaugh. I try to keep personal matters off of this site as much as possible, because it doesn’t matter who we are, what matters is our plan. But I have said before that as a child, I spent a lot of time with my grandmother.
People aren’t really aware now, but in the Bill Clinton years, Limbaugh was basically a proto Alex Jones. He would talk about the New World Order conspiracy to build a global government, freemasonry, and communism being a Jewish conspiracy. He would mix that with the standard pre-William Buckley type conservative views on race and sex.
In the early 2000s, he was having some personal and professional problems, and he got the opportunity to sell out and promote those wars that George W. Bush did for the Jewish Lobby.than notice.
Rush was always fat. Eventually, that fatness polluted his soul, and he used his genius for evil.
When I was four years old, you could say “Jewish lobby” everywhere in America, except New York, and no one would think anything of it. Rush Limbaugh said AIDS was a hoax and that black people were stupid, but if he would have kept saying the one thing that needed to be said – “Jewish lobby” – his life would have become a lot less comfortable. It no longer would have been a life for a fat man bobbing around on pills. He’d have had to have lost that weight for all the ducking and dodging he’d have to be doing, and dumped the pills for fear they’d dull his reflexes. He wouldn’t be able to roll up to the buffet in a limousine.
