Limbaugh Comments On Haiti

I know some of you may never visit this blog again after I say this. Sorry, I have to say this. Rush Limbaugh does NOT represent me as a Christian, nor should he represent anyone then his egocentric, narcissistic self. Larger than life and true to form, he will never miss an opportunity to offend as to boost his ratings and his following. His comments concerning aid to Haiti is downright far-fetched as it is incredulous; and I seriously doubt he even believes himself. The unbelieving world see his antics, and unfortunately lumps us all into the same category. Yuk and double yuk--this man is offensive, repulsively belligerent for a buck, and would be at home at the planet Pluto. A brief article on his comments about the earthquake aid relief efforts follow directly below:


Rush Limbaugh Haiti earthquake comments are 'really stupid...

In the wake of the Haitian earthquake, Rush Limbaugh has created a tremor of his own.

The ever-controversial radio talk host is taking fire for advising people not to donate to Haitian relief through the fund set up by the White House.

If you do that, said Limbaugh, you’ll probably just end up on an Obama campaign mailing list – and a big chunk of your donation will get siphoned off by government bureaucrats.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs called Limbaugh’s assertions "really stupid"

But the heaviest flak has come from Limbaugh’s other comment that "You already give to Haitian relief – it’s called the income tax."

Relief groups and Limbaugh critics like the watchdog group Media Matters immediately accused him of sending the message that there was no need or point to sending private donations.

Limbaugh then posted a lengthy reply on his Web site, saying he had never discouraged donations. His point, he said, was that they should go through private channels like the Red Cross.

Limbaugh, who relishes this sort of controversy, did not back down from his suggestion that the Haitian crisis is "playing right into the hands of" the Obama administration, and that’s likely to come up again on his radio show today (heard in New York, noon-3 p.m., on WABC, 770 AM)…
