  1. Still writhing about in your own froth are you? Wallowing in self pity, that you, can’t get as many congratulations and support as JC got? Has your radio lost listeners or something?

  2. What a filthy rich miserable homely lonely fat selfish swine.

  3. Oh shut up, you jowly, irrelevant old addict. No-one cares.

  4. I’m beginning to wonder if right wing bigots are actually slightly retarded. How does the man not understand that when he is called a homophobic bigot, it is because it is an accurate description of what he is?

    He would prefer a dick rammed down his throat, and he’s upset Jason won’t.

  6. It matters because his conservative party continues to work on marginalize the LGBT community, and his own statement reinforces this view.

    And, I am 100% sure people in his family did talk about other’s sexual orientation. Every time one of his aunts or cousins married someone of the opposite sex, that very conversation broadcast the sexual orientation of both parties. Every time a family member asked his mother/father how he was doing in school, they just discussed his parent’s sexual orientation.

    I guess he does not get it that we just want the same freedoms he grew-up with in his family.

    1. Not really, seeing as it’s possible that the marriage can be mixed oriented, having a family could merely be one of duty instead of a preference. The same could not be applied to gay couples as they are not a “traditional” family.

      But that position is not a good one because a rebuttal of “so are you saying that you got married just to carry out a duty?” can easily get them in an awkward position of not loving their partner.

  7. I think the problem here is that he actually wants something rammed down his throat, but can’t admit it

      Probably his usual cocktail of alcohol and prescription drugs.

  8. A self proclaimed loud mouth, smug, super genius and yet he has not a clue about the depth of the human spirit in association with human sexual orientation. Like the fundamentalists that quietly support him, he makes his money preying on the lesser intelligent and naive. Notice that he NEVER has a debate with anyone on his show. That’s because he knows that there are those that are out there that will shut him up in a quick minute. He is a parasitic wise ass with no wisdom.

    This Gay girl from Toronto says — bugger off Rush!!! You are and always have been a big pain in the arse with your homophobic opinions.

    Keep them to yourself – or better still — make your declarations on Facebook if the shoe fits!!

  10. Spanner1960 1 May 2013, 7:36pm

    So tell me Rush, what is your sexual preference, need we ask?

    Gay people only make a big thing of coming out because you people try to hide it. If homosexuality was accepted by everybody, this would be a total non-story. “He’s gay – big deal.”

    It is not rammed all the time! Perhaps this guy would like something rammed down his throat, maybe he would like it then! Gay people are persecuted and treated like second class citizens! How is it rammed down people’s throats when gay people’s rights have not been established! Discrimination, abuse, intolerance. Look at the tragedy caused by suicides because gay teenagers can’t be who they want to be! This guy perhaps needs a slap..

  12. The obvious question, if Rush doesn’t want “it” rammed down his throat, is why is he talking about it at all, himself ramming it down the throats of his listeners?

    Meanwhile, we’re bombarded with heterosexuality down our throats 24/7, 365 days a year, on the television, in films, in the streets, everywhere you can possibly be. Yet, we don’t complain about it.

    He ought to shut his mouth, a three times married, drug addicted hypocrite. He’s probably a closet case himself since he bangs on about gay this gay that at every provocation. He made his two former wives sign a statement forbidding them to discuss why his marriages ended, for a price of course to keep quiet.

    Bog off, Limbaugh, you tiresome old windbag.

  14. “I grew up in a family… where people’s sexual orientation, preferences, whatever – weren’t even discussed,” Limbaugh complained on his talk show.

    So now he’s driven to implying that his family was filled to overflowing with all sorts of unusual sexual variations but they were respected and never discussed!

    Laughable!

  15. As we’re not talking about JC’s sex life, it shouldn’t be compared with Clintons.

  16. Tom (Winnipeg) 1 May 2013, 8:59pm

    Come on Rush, your hatred is spewing out of your infernal stupid mouth – every word you utter is based on your blind hatred.

  17. Limbaugh is a professional gas bag.

  18. Rush Limbaugh – was there ever a better way of writing down in words the act of someone dashing the the toilet and throwing up?

    (yes I mean onomatopoeia!)

    1. David Waite 1 May 2013, 10:22pm

      Oh! Tastefully served up, thank you.

  19. Julian Morrison 1 May 2013, 9:37pm

    They just love that metaphor. Makes me think they’re pining for something.

  20. Elton John is such a fan of this bigot, he performed as his wedding singer.

  21. So ” is pregnant” and ” has been photographed with an unsightly belly on the beach”, that’s all fine, but as soon as its LGBT related, its being “shoved down our throats”.
    Grow up, you pathetic little man.

    1. Sorry, PN cut out the bits in brackets… I basically said that its all well and good when we’re thrown news report after news report on a celebrity pregnancy but as soon as its related to gay rights then idiots start shouting that its being rammed down peoples throats.

  22. Has every religious nutter in America got their own radio program???

    1. David Waite 1 May 2013, 10:27pm

      Yes, except for the ones currently in Congress.

  23. friday jones 1 May 2013, 10:34pm

    This, from the guy who got caught with a huge stash of Viagra while traveling to one of the world’s known hotspots for child sex tourism. Pretty sure he understands the act of ramming things down throats.

  24. Blah blah blah….

  25. Liam the God 1 May 2013, 11:37pm

    Translation: What Rush was saying is “Shit! He’s getting more attention than I am! I’d better throw a strop and throw my toys out of my pram to get some attention back!”
    This translation service was provided by Iain the Ill.

  26. Anyone know how to send him the great news about Jason Collins?

  27. Christopher in Canada 2 May 2013, 3:42am

    I think Rush does not have ANYTHING he could ram down a throat. Floss with, perhaps, but not down a throat.

  28. Awwwwwwwwww no one congratulating you for being straight and hateful?

    Build a bridge love and get over yourself!

    The reason they are congratulating Jason Collins is because he is a positive role model for young men and women who love sport but are coming to terms with their own sexuality.

    When you realise this, you too could be a nicer person.

    1. Forgot to add:

      If you wanna say you’re gay, fine, but does it have to be rammed down everyone’s throats all the time?” he added. The same can be said for you and your religion! Idiot!

  29. Jock S. Trap 2 May 2013, 11:36am

    Yawn… what a loser… what a bore!

  30. Do you have to keep ramming it down our throats about your own homophobic, bigoted beliefs?…you’re boring me!

  31. Michael Heynz 2 May 2013, 4:48pm

    Rush Limbaugh just loves talking about getting things jammed down his throat.

    I’m sure he doesn’t mind all those Dominican boys he visits jamming their things down his throat.

  32. Rush Limbaugh is and has always been, first and foremost, a media whore.

    I seriously doubt if he cares, one way or another, about anything in any of his frequent rants. His only concern is that he retains his god like status, and that he is worshipped by his listeners.

    It must gall him to no end to realize that society’s last whipping boy is finally becoming an accepted member of the family of humanity. Poor man is seeing his “sphere” of influence begin to shrink and knows that soon it’ll cover about as much area as a subatomic particle.

    I wonder if he’d like some whipped cream on his just desserts. LOL
