right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.
  • Orbusmax

Rush Limbaugh would support the raping of underage boys in the Dominican Republic if Obama was against it.

Or, I should say, Rush Limbaugh does support the raping of underage boys in the Dominican Republic. It is just a plus to him that Obama is against it.


Well, he's right, you know?


I am skeptical of Obama's latest military adventure, in that the LRA has been raping and pillaging for 25 years; why act now? Because there's an election next year, and you can never be fighting too many wars in an election year? So even though the LRA is an awful outfit, I'm dubious.

That said, Uganda is 84% Christian; thus, the LRA's victims are primarily Christian, not Muslim. The LRA itself is a personality cult, no more Christian than Hitler was, and its crimes are just as appalling. Even if Limbaugh is on the right side of the issue, his reasons are so transparently bogus that even dittoheads should know better. He's so full of shit on this one it's coming out his - well, you know...


How many times must I say it folks, Limbaugh like my master is all about ratings and controversy and he has proven that one begets the other. To actually take him seriously is akin to believing in the tooth fairy. He is an aging and deteriorating entertainer who is striving to hang on to his popularity and thus will push provocative stances as long as he thinks it will generate interest (be it genuine or superfluous critical interest). Rush uses politics as a tool simply to enhance his ridiculous statements and see to what limit he can push the extreme. Obviously it works.


Let's cut to the chase - don't care whether Limbaugh is for it or against it, like Pete I am skeptical of this venture. Seems like a mission like this of a greater magnitude should have occurred to Darfur at least 3-5 years ago - both Bush and Obama have been negligent about this up to now.

My question is did the UN provoke him into doing this ? I am not a supporter of the modern day UN, although the UN back in the 60's might have shown to be for the greater good, the modern day UN has a proclivity toward rogue nations and dictatoral governments and is feckless when it comes to policing large scale violence such as Darfur. Iran, Pakistan, North Korea and of course Russia and China are involved in the UN, as they were back in the 60's, but the politics have become worse.


Give it a name with a religious connotation and a whole lot of religious folk will gravitate toward it. Reminds me when I was growing up in the Midwest and a popular radio and TV personality had the name of Rev Mullins. Folks thought it was so wonderful KMBC hired a minister. Never mind that Rev was short for his given name of Reverdy
