Looking for the most despicable statement by Rash Limpjaw

Postby Upton_O_Goode » Fri Jun 09, 2017 8:35 pm

Of course, this is an open forum, so it goes without saying, people who actually like this waste of oxygen are free to jump in with defense. But I ask for quotations with a verifiable source. My own candidate is sourced by my own ears, some 15 years ago when I was still listening to him. It goes as follows:

"Feminism was invented so that unattractive women could have access to the mainstream."

Understand, the man apparently believes (1) that this statement is true, and (2) that it is a valid reproach to feminism.

Edit: My memory of the quote isn't exact. Here's a more reliable record of what was said:

Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of pop culture
"A general conversion among the boys was once effected by the late excellent Mr. Fletcher: one poor boy only excepted, who unfortunately resisted the influence of the Holy Spirit, for which he was severely flogged; which did not fail of the desired effect, and impressed proper notions of religion on his mind."

On his TV show, early in the Clinton administration, Limbaugh put up a picture of Socks, the White House cat, and asked, “Did you know there’s a White House dog?” Then he put up a picture of Chelsea Clinton, who was 13 years old at the time and as far as I know had never done any harm to anyone.

Politics is what it is, and I've never been a fan of the Clintons' bait-and-switch Third Way neoliberalism, but you don't attack children. That's reprehensible.
What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

I do NOT recommend that anyone read thru these statements... as they might change your mind on humanity and cause you to believe that post-birth abortion should be legal. But if you must....

I find Rush a waste of time "but"....I do chuckle when hearing "Feminazi" as part of a screed against some activist.

Should I be ashamed?

Can't copy and paste .... so No4: If you could identify a gay gene in your kiddies....50% of gay babies would be aborted and gays would all become pro life.

I don't find anything stupid about that statement except 50% is too low. Hateful????? Totally definitional.

I stopped there... no need to parse such a list.

Nope. It's just a word. I consider myself a feminist and, frankly, there are some feminists I find offensive. Concepts that should never be a part of feminism include misandry, racism, and classism. Besides, using the term "Nazi" toward anyone except an actual Nazi is simply a sign you've lost the argument. :wgrin:

Well said! There was one truly despicable joke about Chelsea that Sen. McCain had to apologize for when the word got out that he had repeated it. I didn't hear it on Rude Lamebrain's show, though.

Wow, TJ! You have mopped up the board here. OK folks, discussion over. There's nothing more to be said. (Actually, there probably are a lot more than 35 vicious things that Reich Lamprey has said, but who could stand to read them? I could barely get through that list without vomiting.)

Well, the experience of China showed that when one child is a rule, a lot of female fetuses get aborted, and the consequences for society are not good. Still, the prediction that gays would suddenly become pro-life doesn't follow.

And, let's not nitpick, bobbo. 34 out of 35 on target is pretty good.

Where there only 35 on the list? I really did stop at #4. Seeing how you could agree is just "an exercise."

..............but ............ I don't see how sex selection is related to filtering out "the gay", not to get into Bill Maher territory.

If our society did not like people with square ear lobes, I would select against that. Life is hard enough without having traits that the ignorant and bigoted go after. Gee....I just made an argument for selecting for 100 IQ but good running and passing skills, and to select against red hair even though I kind of like it myself.

Choices.

Always a bitch.

Next step: actually subsidizing terror attacks on Iran, North Korea, (Germany?).

But would the US actually support terrorists? Perish the thought! Especially when we have drones....
