    I have been married to my partner for 28 years and not once have I ever wanted to have sex with an under aged person. Where do these people get their ‘FACTS’

    Mr. Limbaugh, you’re missing a key point in your “logic.” In gay relationships, there are two consenting adults. In pedophilia, the child is a victim. Pedophilia is a crime for a reason, and there are no similarities to gay people.

    There’s a calm surrender to the rush of day
    When the heat of the rolling world can be turned away
    An enchanted moment, and it sees me through
    It’s enough for this restless warrior just to be with you

    And can you feel the love tonight
    It is where we are
    It’s enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
    That we got this far
    And can you feel the love tonight
    How it’s laid to rest
    It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds
    Believe the very best

    There’s a time for everyone if they only learn
    That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn
    There’s a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors
    When the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours

    I think that once again Rush Limbaugh is projecting. The thing I’ve always found most suspicious about the story of him having boner-pills that weren’t prescribed to him is WHERE he had them, the Dominican Republic, which is quite notorious for its child prostitution trade. Otherwise, what is there in the Dominican Republic that Limpballs and his pals couldn’t get in the US?

    Let’s just say I’d be very leery of letting him babysit.

    Just because we advance our knowledge of an adult discrimination,(marriage), it does not follow that we change our laws on what is essentially an exploitation of minors.
    This rant is full of all sorts of confused bile;
    “I don’t mean to pick on the gays….”
    Or
    “those academics, those college professors with leather patches on their elbows “.
    Who is he appealing to ? …..every hick in Broadstone ?

    This guy just lashes out at whatever amuses him at the time; he gives no consideration to the rights of individuals or minorities.
    It’s all just blatherings to amuse himself with a deliberate intent to stir up hatred.
    Forget stirring up hatred about paedophelia Fatso, stir things up about hate mongers such as yourself.

    And people listen to this garbage !

  6. says

    the disgusting thing is that he doesn’t even believe a word he said. but he knows that if he says it, he’ll appeal to the ideologies of his base, who are the stupidest people in the country.

    this is why right-wing talking heads are so miserable. sure, they sit on thrones. but they’re thrones perched atop a mountain of excrement.

    it aint something to be proud of. and they know it.

    oxy, anyone?

    Who cares? Like there’s really a movement to normalize pedophilia? He says stupid things to get attention, likely because he’s an idiot on a bunch of pills.

    What was my gut reaction when I first heard anything about him? Nausea. What was it when I heard that he was paying his maid to buy him pills and deliver them in cigar boxes? Laughter.

    “Thanks, Elton John, for all you’ve done to educate your friend, Limbaugh.”

    That was the first thing that sprang to mind. Not that Rush believes any of this nonsense – his commentary has only gotten more extreme because populist conservatism is at its lowest ebb since the Carter era.

  9. Rick says

    I don’t really know what he is talking about and don’t think any but the most extreme of extremists actually take him seriously any more (if they ever did), but I do think one could see debates about homosexuality and the age of consent being linked as part of an overall consideration of the validity of sexual mores in general, a discussion the West has been engaged in for 5 decades now.

    I personally see nothing wrong with lowering the age of consent to age 15–in some countries in Europe it is already below this and throughout most of history, most people married long before they turned 18. Just my 2 cents

  10. alexander says

    pedophiles can be straight or gay. most in general are men and most undereported incidents are the female predators. Anybody can be a sex offender. It’s not gay specific so stop trying to act like it’s the same thing. Ugh…

  11. e.c. says

    And notice how in Rush-world having sex with children is something people on “the Left” want to normalize. Because deviant sexual behavior is NEVER something that good conservatives do. Only crazy liberals get up to that kinky stuff. Yeah, right.

  12. Jack M says

    Rush is just an attention whore. He panders to the right wing because he knows the left won’t give him the time of day. This way, he gets attention from both sides.

  13. HadenoughBS says

    Who cares what this “turd blossom of the airwaves” has to say about, well, ANYTHING? He and his followers are part of a dying bred in America. Does he actually have REAL advertisers on his show anymore?? If so, sounds like time to start a new advertiser boycott.

    First we had Scalia comparing homosexuality to committing murder (in the great Catholic tradition), now Limbaugh, always the publicity whore, compares gay marriage with pedophilia. He won’t get away with it, but he’ll generate the usual response from all the Kristian Krazies and nutcases on the right. Looks like an effort to bring back the good ol’ days when the mere mention of pedophiles and gays in the same breath was an automatic association. It won’t work.

  16. EchtKultig says

    Seriously, are there actually any cases of openly gay people being pedophiles? Most of the notorious ones identified as straight. The Catholic priests who rape kids all ID as straight. Jerry Sandusky was “straight”. The only one I can think of is Jeffrey Dahmer who had visited gay clubs, but only to look for victims; I don’t think he was known to have any conventional gay relationship. Please, do tell. I had gay teachers when I was a kid who the other kids made jokes about; but the only man who ever gave me the creepy “I’m a little too interested in you” vibe was a married church youth minister.

    Anyhow as to his main point, what part of “consenting adults” do these people not understand? The cultures which most abuse children are ones like Islam, Fundamentalist Mormonism, etc. that are thoroughly patriarchal and homophobic. OTOH, we have to deal with a certain elephant in the room here that is rather politically incorrect. The notion that male victims of child abuse are somehow permanently emasculated is a false one but apparently becomes something of a self-fulfilling prophecy for some of them. (I wasn’t abused as a child so I won’t know other than from what I’ve read) There’s an article somewhere where Lawrence Lessig has unashamedly talked about the terrible abuse he faced (yes, full penetration at the hands, er, um, member, of a straight identifying man who had a girlfriend) but he obviously turned out “alright”, and is still heterosexual with 3 children. He doesn’t say it’s right, but he says that as a child, not knowing it to be abnormal, he actually enjoyed the attention. So to say it’s not a fate worse than death isn’t to “normalize it”, though I’m sure that isn’t what the Limburger is talking about; since maintaining a homophobic, patriarchal worldview is all that he’s about. People like him really want kids to keep getting raped, because it will probably turn many of them into permanent homophobes.

    TO me a picture emerges that people who do this are either “mostly” straight with a horrid sadistic, psychopathetic streak (like that notorious scene in a Neil Labute film where a straight, womanizing man gloats about having raped a boy) or people who are responding to an incredibly corrosive internalized homophobia. (most of the catholic priests, though some are probably in the former category, or a bit of both!) at any rate, neither of these are a result of the modern LGBT movement.

  17. Matt S says

    There is a huge difference between “That’s silly. That’ll never happen” and “That’s terrible! That should never be allowed to happen!”

  18. Roger says

    Sounds like Rush is back on the dope again. He is just confused, it is the Catholic priest who have the pedophile problem that will never go away, they keep trying to hide it like Rush hides his drug problems.

  19. Miguel R. says

    He’s just trying to cover up the fact that he and his pundit friends (like Coulter) have been trying to normalize sociopathy for many years now.

    All of this claptrap was started by testimony before the Canadian Parliament about the punishment and treatment of pedophile sex offenders.

    The expert witness, a psychologist in this field, divides pedophiles into different categories. Some are sociopaths, for instance. The true pedophile is attracted exclusively to the young.

    He states – and I paraphrase – “coming to grips with the awareness of being a pedophile is like coming to grips with homosexuality, or even, heterosexuality.”

    Those who feel this way are LIKE those, but not the same as those. His point being that, for this segment of pedophiles, treatment will not be effective.

    He was in no way accepting or condoning this behavior. He was not offering it as an excuse. He was only trying to explain the pathology of the pedophile.

  22. jamal49 says

    Like I said, Rush, I regret I didn’t have a camera with me when I saw you with that under-age, um, chica in the D.R., cavorting around and having, uh, fun. Yeah, I remember that nice, big Cohiba you had in your mouth, too. A couple of locals told me how you loved coming to their little pueblito and how you paid top-dollar for those young chicas. One guy said you were arrogant, loud and feo and pretty much as repulsive a gringo as there was.

  23. Jerry6 says

    Why do so many people torment themselves every day by listening to Limpjaw spout his hatred, and then waste time writing all these paragraphs about what a nut job he is? I am waiting for the day when I check out a Limpjaw headline and find that nowone has wasted any time writing a comment (including myself).
