Limbaugh Mocks Reports of Children Dying From H1N1

Today on his radio show, Rush Limbaugh mocked reports that children are dying from H1N1. Limbaugh accused the administration of using the swine flu body count to promote healthcare. Limbaugh said, “It’s a new battlefield, but the same thing, battlefield deaths, the new swine flu body count, all because the priority is healthcare.”

Here is the audio courtesy of Media Matters:

Limbaugh said, “I got the story in the South Florida Sun Sentinel story, and an AP story, and Kathleen Sebelius and the vaccines, the body count is in there. The number of children who died because of H1N1, and what makes it really odd is that it’s not children who die from the flu, so this must be really bad, its seasoned citizens who normally parish from the flu, but now our future, so it’s the new battle. It’s a new battlefield, but the same thing, battlefield deaths, the new swine flu body count, all because the priority is healthcare.”

The AP story that Limbaugh is referring to is from Friday. In it the CDC pointed out the normally 46-88 children die from the flu each year, but this year 76 children have already died from the swine flu. I don’t see how this is worthy of being mocked. Limbaugh’s complete lack of compassion for the people who have lost children is not surprising.

Whether you believe that H1N1 is serious threat or not, children have died. Limbaugh is trying to turn the flu into a political issue, but no one in the Obama administration has tied the flu to healthcare reform. People, like Limbaugh, who believe that the two are linked, are doing nothing more than floating a new right wing conspiracy theory.

  1. The NFL decides who becomes an owner not the other way around.

    All this blowhard (Rush Hudson Limbaugh A.KA. Jeff Christie) has to offer is his money and his opinions, (which in my opinion are on the fringes of racism, one mans opinion). There are many more groups biding for the Rams, not just his group. Lets face it there are more men with money (Marshall Faulk) that will gladly fill the slot and the Rams will win or lose depending on how well they work as a team and not on whether or not Rush is an owner.

    As for Vick, well he is a player (he has talent not like you, Rush or I, unless you are a NFL player?) and he served his time and the NFL decided we live in the land of second chances, so why not (I personally don’t like it but, oh well). Life has never been fair (NEWS FLASH!)

    Now as to the “Free Speech” argument, I guess many of you like myself heard Rush on Thursday “Almost in tears”, priceless. But the last couple of days he now is in his normal ranting and will continue until someone surpasses him, “Free Speech” continues, so what is being stifled, it simply is not true, of course, you may not have a radio, so you might want to get one.

  4. It seems to me that all the negative vibes this blowhard (Rush Hudson Limbaugh A.KA. Jeff Christie) has been spewing over these many years has come back to blow back on his face (A classic “Blow Back”). He always tries to give off the airs that he can have anything he wants but as we all witness those with more money and more influence tossed him aside like sack of potatoes and the ultimate insult was that it was done in public (money don’t buy you everything butterball).

    Now of course he blames everyone else (Michael J. Fox, Perez Hilton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor, Hillary Clinton, Olympia Snowe, ESPN, NFL, the media, basically people of color, the handicapped, women and gays) when of course all you have to do is listen to his show and plainly hear his daily prejudices filled sermons. So NFL, I salute you decision, job well done. And to the whaling cry baby perched on his self made pedestal, quit your whining it was your own fault. He is reaping what he has sowed, KARMA, “palin and simple” like his followers. Don’t we all feel better?
