Elite Media Takes Cues From Kook Left!

Thank goodness for Rush Limbaugh.

Without him, headlines like the one above might well go begging.

As long as they pay him the big bucks, though, we'll always have banners like "You're Damn Right We're Questioning Your Patriotism, Liberal Left!" to look forward to. His website regularly features such astute pronouncements, mixed in with his subtle brand of "humor," such as his recent hawking of "Camp Gitmo" shirts. Listening to his show is sort of like hearing the news delivered by a paranoid schizophrenic, someone who's convinced the entire world has dedicated itself to attacking him for his essential rightness. And since he can never be wrong, half the fun of the show is listening to the truth being put through the contradictory contortions neccessary to make 2 + 2 = 5.

Well, that and the callers who worship him like a god.

"Say, Rush? When you said Ted Kennedy was a drunk? We just thought that was sooooo funny! We peed our pants, Rush, no lie!"

"Well, thank you, my friend. You know it's really the Liberals that have no sense of humor. They're so busy predicting doom and gloom for the country that they've forgotten how to laugh. They're really only happy when America is failing, don't ask me why. The truth be told, ladies and gentlemen, they hate this country for some reason that you and I can only guess at. But make no mistake: you may hear their opinions more because of the monopoly of the media elite, but they're not representative of the real Americans who sweat and toil and go to church once a week and believe in an essential decency that the Liberals' brand of moral relativism can never come close to replacing."

"Well, ok, Rush. We just...thought you was awful funny about the drunk thing...Ted Kennedy...drinkin' an' all."

"Alright, then, my friend. Thank you for calling."

But Rush doesn't shy away from the hard questions. He just ignores them. When Pat Robertson dropped his bombshell last week about Jesus Christ being a hitman, Rush refused to comment, proclaiming that efforts to elicit an opinion from him were merely a "trap" laid out by the liberal media in hopes of getting him to discredit the conservative movement. Or take his convoluted defense of such terms as "feminazi." Turns out that it's not merely a case of "feminist = nazi." When called upon to explain this coinage, Limbaugh painstakingly argues that it's not offensive because the word's subtle gradations of meaning are such that he's the only one who really understands the definition. And, as he's the only one who is truly able to comprehend it, no one can be offended.

So I figure it's a good bet that Rush won't have much to say about the latest press release from Repent America, a Philadelphia-based organization dedicated to attending as many gay and gay-friendly events as possible and "witnessing" the truth of the Lord Jebus to people who will become angry and upset (see their press release, "Christians Threatened With Violence By Homosexual Mob").

Can't be helped, though. Jebus is calling the shots.

Now time was when Pat Robertson would make the pronouncements about natural disasters being divine retribution. But Pat's still recovering from his "Who Would Jesus Kill?" campaign, so it's fallen upon others to pick up the slack. Enter Michael Marcavage of Repent America:


Just days before "Southern Decadence", an annual homosexual celebration attracting tens of thousands of people to the French Quarters section of New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina destroys the city. "Southern Decadence" has a history of filling the French Quarters section of the city with drunken homosexuals engaging in sex acts in the public streets and bars…However, Hurricane Katrina has put an end to the annual celebration of sin.

"Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God destroyed a wicked city," stated Repent America director Michael Marcavage. "From 'Girls Gone Wild' to 'Southern Decadence,' New Orleans was a city that had its doors wide open to the public celebration of sin. From the devastation may a city full of righteousness emerge," he continued...

"We must help and pray for those ravaged by this disaster, but let us not forget that the citizens of New Orleans tolerated and welcomed the wickedness in their city for so long," Marcavage said. "May this act of God cause us all to think about what we tolerate in our city limits, and bring us trembling before the throne of Almighty God," Marcavage concluded.

"[God] sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust." (Matthew 5:45)

That God! What a kook!
