Ain’t no hurricane gonna blow Rush down.

Hurricane Matthew is a big, scary storm, and it is bearing down on Florida. Zombie-faced Florida Gov. Rick Scott is telling people to evacuate, saying this storm “is going to kill people.” So we imagine Rush Limbaugh, a Florida resident, is doing all his hurricane preparations right now. He’s likely digging ginormous holes in the ground for all his Oxycontin and Viagra, so it’s safe from BIG WIND, and we bet he’s also doing his best to board up his house so Obama’s frothing hordes of lesbian farmers don’t pull up in tractors and steal it from him while he’s gone.

But Rush is also dispensing some wisdom to America in advance of the storm, and it is that hurricanes are a big liberal lie, just like global warming:

This has been a serious storm from the get-go, and I have perfected being able to analyze how hurricanes are reported.

Is it something about fresh-faced weather guys and gals standing in waders in the middle of the storm while palm trees are blown to bits, so Ethel in Nebraska has a visual aid to understand WTF a “hurricane” is? NO, it is something different:

I’ve become an expert in spotting the politics in hurricane tracking and hurricane forecasting. And by that I mean people that work at the — the National Hurricane Center is part of the National Weather Service, which is part of the Commerce Department, which is part of the Obama administration, which by definition has been tainted just like the DOJ has.

Follow the bouncing wingnut! Hurricanes are connected to the National Weather Service, which is connected to Obama, who is a Muslin from Kenya who hates America, right? Obviously ISIS made Hurricane Matthew, in its dad’s garage!

And we know — in fact …. Obama is telling — Obama is actually telling people that global warming, that climate change is having a very profound impact on the war on Syria. The war in Syria.

Droughts. Insane droughts, which are happening more and more because of climate change. It’s not that complicated, but it’s probably above Rush’s pay grade.

It’s tactically absurd, and there’s now a story from the Pew Center for people in the press showing that a majority of Americans do not believe the consensus of scientists predicting that there is climate change.

Wonder why an impressionable majority of Americans doesn’t “believe in” climate change, when ALL REAL SCIENTISTS agree on it. It’s almost as if those idiot Americans are being influenced by ignorant-ass opinions from dickholes like Rush Limbaugh. HMMMM.

Well, the left doesn’t like that, so they keep ramming it down our throats. So with hurricane tracking and hurricane forecasting, I’ve been able to spot where I think they might be playing games because it’s in the interests of the left to have destructive hurricanes because then they can blame it on climate change, which they can continue desperately continue trying to sell.

WE LOVE HURRICANES. We get naked and jump up and down and frolic around because WHEEEEEEE! We just know that, while the big storm batters Florida, a Rush Limbaugh devotee is huddled in his Motel 6 in inland Georgia, crying chunky tears, because he thinks maybe the liberals have been right all along. When, sobbing, he utters the words, “climate change is real I guess,” all left-leaning voters spontaneously jizz on each other, because our wicked plan is coming to fruition.

What, you didn’t get invited to the big exciting hurricane jizz party?

The problem for them is after Hurricane Katrina. Remember, Al Gore goes out there, and all these people start saying this is just the beginning. And this is just, I mean, tip of the iceberg. We’re going to have these kind of hurricanes every year — numerous hurricanes, and they’re going to be more destructive than Katrina, and it’s all because we’ve got climate change. And what happened? We had 11 years of no hurricanes — 11 straight years of no major hurricanes striking land in the United States, which just bores a hole right through the whole climate change argument.


So over the recent past, five or six years, whenever there has been a hurricane, I think I’ve been able to spot when they try to make it look like it might hit a population center because they want people to think this way: Hurricane reported. Ah, must be climate change! They want that thought process. And one of the ways you can bring that about is to try to convince people that a given hurricane that may pop up is aiming right for a major population center. It’s kind of like UFOs. You know, UFOs never land where there are smart people. UFOs always land in trailer parks and places.

Bet Rush Limbaugh’s listeners mail him lots of UFO snapshots.

You ever notice that? UFOs land in swamps. They land out where nobody lives. They don’t go to MIT. They don’t go to Harvard. Well, a hurricane hitting a swamp is worthless to the global warming crowd. A hurricane has to hit a population center. Well, this hurricane there has been no politics. This is a serious bad storm.

Wait, it’s a “serious bad storm” and yet liberals aren’t doing “politics” to it? We must be off our game. There’s always next time, though, except there won’t be a next time because Al Gore is fat.

(Florida Wonkers, we do hope you are evacuating right now, even though we are liberals who love hurricane destruction because it helps our agenda.)

    The good news is that Mar-A-Lago is directly in the path of the hurricane…

      The bad news is that Mar-A-Lago is not all that far from El Dad’s humble abode…which he has filled with veggies, nuts, water, and books with which he intends to hunker down for the duration of the storm.

          Thank you – he’s pretty good with storms. Stays put, prepares judiciously, doesn’t freak during the worst, deals very calmly with the aftermath. As long as he has books, he’s good.

          He’s got a full tank of gas, also too, so if he needs to get out, he will.

      Rush makes his money pissing off liberals and making the conservatives pat him on the back…He is an entertainer for the stupids ..pays good…..Thats why he does it….I dont think he actually believes the bile he preaches ..He sits back and laughs at it…Then he uses his free time to think up more outrageous shit to say to get liberals back to yelling at him and conservatives praising him….Me I just dont pay attention to the idiot fku tard he is a phony.

And what happened?

    11 year? Um, Hurricane Sandy? I think that was a pretty big one…

    He is not, I hate to say it, entirely wrong, in the sense that the link between climate change and hurricanes has been overstated by the lay press. It’s actually: climate change makes the water warmer which makes better conditions for hurricanes. No one (except deniers) doubts that. But it’s way too complicated a system to say climate change = bigger hurricanes, and nobody said there would be “numerous hurricanes” that would be “more destructive than Katrina” every year.

    Moreover, one of the major factors in whether hurricanes are “destructive” and how destructive is coastal development, which is not about the climate as such. If the 1926 hurricane that hit Miami hit today, the devastation it would cause would make Katrina look mild. That said, coastal developers ignore climate change at everyone’s peril.

    I’m of the firm belief that science should be rationed to the Left and leeches and water sticks should be rationed to the Right. (Sorry, Limbaugh, no Viagra or Oxy for you, but your medicine man may have some rhino-horn for you next time you take a sex trip to the DR.)

    A large apple, about a gallon of olive oil and a whole bush of rosemary. The problem is keeping the fire low and cooking for a long time, Else it’ll taste like crap and be as tough as an old shoe. Take your time and it’ll be passable. Should feed about 50 maybe 60 people. The craklin’s will keep the dogs happy.

    Luckily this hurricane has a male-name so that people will take it seriously:
    Female-named hurricanes kill more than male hurricanes because people don’t respect them, study finds

    On the other hand, my name is Matthew and no one takes me seriously.

    • Last Hussar

      My middle name is Matt, which is apt, because if you lay me right to start with you can walk all over me for years.

    Silly Rush Limbaugh, we can’t cheer for the hurricane to kill anyone.

    After all, it’s Hurricane Matthew, not Hurricane Votes

  • Peripatetic Poltroon

    Lessee, first, climate change was a scam perpetrated by greedy & unethical researchers, who possess omerta to make the mafia envious. Then it was the Chinese. Now it’s “the left?” I guess our highest goal is to have everyone drive zero-carbon cars & are willing to mount a huge scam to gain that? Dang, we’re good. I’m buying Tesla stock.

  • chascates

    Lucky for Rush shit floats.

  • Oblios_Cap

    Well, yes we liberals sure want hurricanes to kill everyone. That’s why out

  • Adventure49

    If the forecasts are correct, Rush Limbaugh’s house on the beach in Palm Beach will likely be under water by this time tomorrow.

  • Bemused

    Wait. I thought it was the evangelicals that love Hurricanes because they are just God’s way of pointing out and punishing the sinful, right? Maybe the sinful are really living in the swamps and the National Weather Services is just pretending they are in the cities? IDK. It’s hard to keep up with the conspiracy theories, especially when they contradict each other.

    • Kiri the Unicorn

      He’s trying to say that the National Weather Service hypes-up hurricane forecasts as part of the nefarious liberal plot to convince people to not burn fossil fuels in comically-large trucks that are decorated with Confederate Loser flags.

          A bit of help, anybody?

      • Scot Fourowls

        So true, Kiri, about much of Rush’s audience who drive the gas-guzzling huuuge trucks usually occupied by one dude and bearing a Confederate Loser flag in the rural parts of the deep south red states. Nobody who hasn’t experienced it first hand could believe it’s the same US as, say, LA, NYC, Miami, Minneapolis, Chicago, Des Moines, Austin, Atlanta, or even a western red-state city like Phoenix. There’s a casual racism still reminiscent of the 19th century in the rural south. Not only backlash post-slavery against African-Americans and refusal to face white complicity even by non-slave-owners, but the virtual genocide against the Cherokee indigenous people alongside white male conscription of “squaws” and the forced production of mixed race children. (And no, to all “good ole boys,” when people of color mention that white supremacist people like y’all are casually racist about people of color, that doesn’t make us racist for talking about it).

        It’s a short step from denying racism to denying the reality of climate change that might stop the huuuuge gas-guzzling trucks from rolling for the warped fun of waving those Confederate flags in everybody else’s faces.

        • Kiri the Unicorn

          Okay, I was just going off on a tangent for comedic purposes, but you raise an interesting point about the overall denial of reality that is exhibited by some of our fellow citizens.

  • GunToting[Redacted]

    One of my more “conspiratorially-minded” FB friends posted that what she sees on her weather app on her phone doesn’t show ANY hurricane like she sees on the teevee. Someone pointed out that there are different layer overlays you can add (wind speed, precipitation, RADAR). The others are all on about how this looks like it is HAARP-related.

  • Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe that wishing that his house (and only his) is destroyed by the storm violates the rules for commenting radicals.

      I think maybe something about Climate Change is a hoax so there are no hurricanes but Liberals want us some climate change damage so we made this one out of hot air and bad intentions.

  • TakingAmes

    I’m confused. Does reporting on a hurricane make it hit population centers? Do liberals have a weather machine, like China? I can’t follow his argument.

  • It’s always “ramming it down our throats” with these people. . . It’s like they have some sort of strange obsession, or something.

  • janecita
  • SpaceCaptainWarlock

    Rush’s job is to come up with rationalizations for things and whacky theories that the fat, old white people that listen to him can use to feel better about being terrible people.

  • Beulah

    We had 11 years of no hurricanes — 11 straight years of no major hurricanes striking land in the United States, which just bores a hole right through the whole climate change argument.

    New York was severely affected by Hurricane Sandy in 2012…

    At least 53 people died in New York as a result of the storm. Thousands of homes and an estimated 250,000 vehicles were destroyed during the storm, and the economic losses across New York were estimated to be at least $18 billion.

    • BrianW

      Yeah, but it hit New York City, which is known to be liberal. Yes, it also hit New Jersey, but EVERYONE knows that Chris Christie isn’t really a conservative anyway. Hey, rationalization is easy!

      Rush doesn’t seem to understand that the United States is only a small part of the planet. The rest of the world is getting plenty of hurricanes/typhoons/cyclones.

    So substitute “terrorist attack” for “hurricane” and you pretty much have the game plan of the Agent Orange campaign.

    Poor Rushbo. Desperately treading water in the pool of crazy where he used to be King. Alex Jones, Steve Bannon, they’ve sucked up all the oxygen because they’re on the internetz where all the kids are. The kids don’t listen to AM talk radio.

  • Jack

    I found this story by reading Raw Story where it was linked. Maybe CNN will start using Wonkette as a source in the near future? Real News for real people, what a concept!

  • WTF did Rush Limbaugh say? Did any of that have any meaning? Is he really asking why UFO’s don’t land on the hurricane watchers in the middle of a hurricane or was it that UFO’s cause hurricanes when they land? Or maybe he meant that hurricanes are aimed by the Pope at population centers so liberals can sell the advertising rights? What?

    • JCfromNC

      I’m not entirely sure, but I think he’s saying hurricanes are sent by aliens and controlled by liberals to only hit major population centers because the Chinese are trying to fake evidence for global warming?

      Oh, and he snuck something in about how his listeners from trailer parks are all stoopids, but it’s okay because he’s pretty sure they’re not bright enough to connect the dots.

      ETA: Oh, wait — the Chinese thing is Drumpf’s. I guess for Limpballs it’s Gore that’s faking the evidence.

      • Al Gore’s Chinese UFO’s are creating hurricanes at the behest of liberals so that they can destroy America, hunh? Who woulda thunk? Thanks for clearing that up for me. You speak Limbaugh real good.

  • Tokays_don’t_blink

    If “the liberals” really wanted the hurricane to kill err’body, we’d just stop forecasting and tracking storms.

    Go away Limbaugh, you bloated bloviating sack of bile.

  • Mike Steele

    BTW, Rush… Palm Beach was essentially spared. god just called; he wants his ‘talent’ back.

  • meanlawyermom

    I am in the path of Matthew, but was luckily spared. My neighbors not so much. It is heartbreaking and anyone using it for political fodder is disgusting. I still remember tuning in to talk radio the day Katrina hit New Orleans, trying to get news from any source, and unfortunately being subjected to Neal Boortz’s radio show. I will never forget hearing Neal Boortz bloviating about how this storm was nothing because the pictures showed nothing was a problem. His producer or someone told him the pics were stills and then he said, well, whatever, it shows it’s nothing. They are all wimps.

    I already had plans to travel to Texas with a friend to see my relatives, which we did, days after Katrina’s landfall. Everyone I met was horrified about the Katrina devastation, no matter what our political party was, and wanted to help every adult, child, or baby we saw who were affected.

    Anyone who detracts from major storm warnings for political reasons is horrible. Anyone who implies victims were at fault is in the basket of deplorables.
