    The next person who claims to be a "dittohead" or says "Rush is right" . . . I will have to fight the urge to punch them. I just might punch them. As of today, any remaining tolerance or sympathy with people who think that man is a fount of wisdom, or who even think he is funny, just went out the window. I . . . AM . . . FURIOUS. Actually, I'm almost physically ill. He has a right to say whatever he wants, and I have a right to say that he is, at best, an ignorant prick who should do the world a favor by getting a permanent case of laryngitis so that he will stop pouring verbal diarrhea into the ears of the gullible, ignorant, and rabidly partisan. Before someone says "he's just an entertainer" he is 1) an entertainer that people take very seriously, and 2) this is not even remotely entertaining.

    For background, I spent two months working on a pro bono project involving the reintegration of child soldiers in Uganda.

    I've heard of them Rush. So have a lot of other people who actually pull their heads out of their rectums.

    One, you ignorant turd, is that the LRA has been spreading terror throughout the entire region. Most prominently in Uganda, which is, you idiot, a CHRISTIAN nation, in fact, so Christian that they really, really hate gays . . . but that's beside the point. The LRA and Joseph Kony are about as Christian as Genghis Khan.

    Two links on THAT issue . . . one from Christians, one from athiests . . .

    Deliver Us from Kony | Christianity Today | A Magazine of Evangelical Conviction

    Joseph Kony's Spirit War

    Far be it from me to defend the government of Uganda. However, in comparison to Joseph Kony and co, they are the high of freedom, liberty, and human civilization. Mr. Limbaugh, you who always accuse members of our government of lying and having ulterior motives, has it never occurred to you that people might LIE on their mission statement? That that might be a stinking pile of horse crap?

    For the whole thing, see here: Obama Invades Uganda, Targets Christians - The Rush Limbaugh Show

    LRA. Let me tell you around the LRA. They are a bunch of mass murdering kidnappers, torturers and child rapists. They could credibly be accused of attempted genocide, if not for the fact that they enthusiastically kill people of all sorts of ethnicities. Did I mention the child rapist part?

    For your reading pleasure:

    Joseph Kony - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord's_Resistance_Army

    Joseph Kony's Long Walk To, and From, Hell - Graeme Wood - International - The Atlantic

    A Certain Fact about the LRA

    BBC NEWS | Africa | Profile: Joseph Kony

    Lord's Resistance Army (LRA)

    There's more, a LOT more.

    To make a long story short, in the course of his unending war, Mr. Kony and the LRA have abducted tens of thousands of children. Often, they force these children to murder their parents, so they have no home to go back to. The boys, subject to constant abuse, are turned into child soliders and in doctrinated into Mr. Kony's pyschotic perversion of Christianity. The girls are made into sex slaves. Mr. Kony and the LRA have murdered tens of thousands. They have mutilated and raped many more. THe international criminal court has indicted him for crimes against humanity. The U.S. long since declared him a terrorist.

    I am, admittedly, dubious of sending in our troops to catch this *******. I'm not at all sure its a good idea, or that we should be doing it. I am very leery of getting tangled up in Africa's "Great War". So, I am not defending the President. I am condemning the evil that is the LRA. It is, by the way, for those of us who are not partisan robots, possible to disagree with the President about sending troops to fight someone and none the less feel that that someone deserves to be roasted alive in a pit of rabid wolverines.

    Mr. Limbaugh, scoring cheap political points on Mr. Obama by implying that the LRA is anything but an abomination run by a monster is utterly beyond the pale . . . I was actually speechless for a moment. Either you are so goddamn f-ing ignorant that you don't know what is coming out of your mouth, or you are so cynical, so indifferent to the truth that you do not care, and will say anything, ANYTHING to score political points. I will assume, because I believe that one should try to think the best of people, that you are an ignorant, cynical hack, and not that you actually support psychotic murderers who kidnap and rape children.

    /Spits and stalks off.

    Rush Limbaugh. If you do not know who he is, consider yourself lucky.

    And we wonder why stupid people we hate get ratings.

    No wonder the marionettes of the bs 'occupy' movement have so many clueless followers.

    When I worked at FOHA, a coworker I used to have lunch with would listen to Rush Limbaugh while we ate. From what I heard, I honestly think he just likes to **** people off. I never heard one single thing on his show that I would've taken as intelligent thought. It honestly just seemed like word spew.

    Basically, I think he's like a troll, but on the radio.

    Yes, and I would care a lot less if it were not for the fact that a section of the right wing will now believe, forever, that the LRA are little Christian freedom fighters battling Muslim oppression. Not a word of which is true. Most trolls don't have that kind of influence, or the ability to drag a major political party along (or at least intimidate many of its members to silence).

    As I said, I am dubious about the President's expedition. Which doesn't make the LRA anything but some of the worst people alive on the planet. Not only is it well documented what they have done, I spent a good chunk of two months immersed (on paper, thank god) in the nightmare they have created, trying to help draft a legal solution to handling the children that he has made into murderers.

    I am furious because of Rush's influence, not, exactly, because of what he said. Had he been a guy at the table next to me at the restaurant (where I read this off my blackberry) I might have laid into him (verbally) unless Mike stopped me, but I wouldn't still be pissed now.

    Heck, my own UNCLE listens to this drivel . . . will I have to hear about how the President is killing nice little Christians in Uganda over Christmas . . . /gag

    One of the questions that perplexes, frustrates and even on occasion infuriates me is since when did it become Truth that if one side is wrong the other side is correct? Sometimes BOTH sides are just full of sh1t.

    I remember reading about the LRA years ago. The fact that Rush would give that group props as "Christians" is repulsive. Methinks the oxy has addled his brain.....

    Yup, yup, yup. And when it comes to politics, change your "sometimes" to "the vast majority of the time".
    It feels like we are a nation stunted before maturity who don't have the intellectual capacity to process anything other than black and white.

    "I'm not touching you!"

    "You're touching me, get back on your side of the car!"

    "I'm not on your side, you're on my side!"

    "Stop touching me I'm not touching you stop hittin' yerself!"

    "MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMM!"

    Sound about right?
