Before Fox News, Breitbart, and racist frog cartoons, Rush Limbaugh was lying to the masses daily to promote an America where rich, white, Christian men could rule in totality.
There are few lines that the propaganda pioneer has not crossed, and yet, on his radio show yesterday, the conservative blowhard managed to find a new way for his lies to endanger lives. (Audio below.)
“The reason that I am leery of forecasts this far out, folks, is because I see how the system works,” Limbaugh told his devotees, many of whom live in the paths of Hurricane Harvey or Irma.
The problem is, for millions of people in the path of Hurricane Irma, now is not the time to be “leery” of forecasts. Now, is the time to listen to the available scientific warning signs and take precautions to save lives.
Limbaugh continued, detailing his faux climate change conspiracy:
“So there is a desire to advance this climate change agenda, and hurricanes are one of the fastest and best ways to do it. You can accomplish a lot just by creating fear and panic. You don’t even need a hurricane to hit anywhere. All you need is to create the fear and panic accompanied by talk that climate change is causing hurricanes to become more frequent, and bigger, and more dangerous, and you create the panic, and it’s mission accomplished, agenda advanced.
Well, the TV stations begin reporting this and the panic begins to increase… So the media benefits with the panic with increased eyeballs, and the retailers benefit from the panic with increased sales, and the TV companies benefit because they’re getting advertising dollars from the businesses that are seeing all this attention from customers.”
Here, Limbaugh proves that he is so committed to defaming liberals that he is willing to peddle lies that could get his own audience killed.

Rush Limbaugh’s shameful spiel can be heard below. It is a great example of what not to do — including listening to his horrendous show.
