Elton John Wants To Change The Mind Of Rush Limbaugh

Elton In a new interview with Rolling Stone:

"'I could not believe when I was asked to play,' he says. 'I thought it was a joke. I had dialogue with him before and he said, 'I'm not anti-gay, I want you to come, bring David.' My goal is for Rush to say, 'I support civil partnerships,' and if I rang him right now, I think he might agree. He was one of the first people to congratulate us on the baby.'"

Sounds like he's still trying to convert Limbaugh. You may recall that just last year John said something very similar to The Telegraph: "I got on with him very well, got on very well with his wife. I don’t have the same politics, but that doesn’t really matter. And I think this year I can start to put things in motion by trying to get him on my side."

  1. Civil partnerships and civil unions, as we all know, are a form of second class citizenship, something we should be very wary of. (At any rate, everyone except Obama, McCain, Elton John and other right wingers know that.) Africans in the RSA were officially declared second class citizens to justify apartheid and paying much lower wages. African Americans were pushed into second class citizenship by the Jim Crow laws, again as an excuse to steal their wages. Years before they built the ovens the Nazis, step by step. reduced German Jews to second class status.

    Rush Limbaugh is a serious ultra rightist. He's a racist pig who opposes unions and unreservedly supports Obama's wars of aggression and colonization. As further proof of his right wing extremism he supports civil unions and opposes same sex marriage. So do bigots like the Clintons and Obama.

    "Speaking on his radio show [Thursday], famed conservative talk show personality Rush Limbaugh said that he supports same-sex civil unions. Reacting to critics of musician Elton John, who performed at Limbaugh’s recent wedding, Limbaugh stated: “Elton John is on the same page as I am, as is Obama on gay marriage. He’s for civil unions, but he’s not for marriage.” http://catholicexchange.com/2010/08/02/132930/

    Even if Elton John got a million or so dollars for entertaining at Limbaugh's fourth wedding (typical supporter of the sanctity of marriage) John ought to be careful about who he hangs out with. Too much time in the company of pigs and all the cologne in the world won't cover up the stench of the sty.

  2. Lady Elton would sell his own grandmother for a price. Not buying it.

  3. Herr Elton Frankenstein, I don't think it's worth it. Might as well throw that corpse back in the box, and go back to medical school.
