Rush Limbaugh Accuses Facebook and Twitter of Recruiting for the Left

Limbaugh warns his blue haired listeners about the evils of Twitter

On his radio show today Rush Limbaugh blamed Facebook, My Space, and Twitter for activism on issues like the environment and breast cancer. Limbaugh claimed that social media lure people into activism, “I know everybody does want to matter, that’s how they lure them into environmental activism.” Watch out for Facebook and Twitter ditto heads, because they will brain wash you into caring.

Here is the audio courtesy of Media Matters:

Limbaugh said, “A highly enlightened friend of mine just sent me a note saying Rush this business of I want to make a difference means I want to matter. I want to matter, which I understand, that why there’s Facebook. That’s why there’s My Space. That’s why there’s my face. That’s why there’s my butt. All these other Tweets and social networks, that’s how people go to matter. I know everybody does want to matter. That’s how they lure them into environmental wackoism. I’m mattering. I’m driving my Prius. I’m saving the planet. See this ribbon? I matter. I care more than you about breast cancer, because you’re not wearing the ribbon. I’m better than you. I matter. I know everybody wants to matter than say that. Don’t say I want to make a difference, because Hitler made a difference.”

Apparently social media is to blame for people actually wanting to get involved and caring about issues, and according to Limbaugh this is a bad thing, because the Left has taken social media and turned into a tool for their radical recruitment of people to their causes like the environment and breast cancer. (I didn’t realize that breast cancer research was a radical cause of the Left). Aren’t conservatives sending the same message when they make a big flap over Obama not wearing a flag pin on his lapel? What about all of those Republicans who drive around who support the troops ribbons and flags on their cars?

To me, they are saying look at me, I love America and support the troops more than you because of my lapel pin or the magnet on my car. They are making the point that they are “real Americans,” and those of us who don’t have pins or magnets aren’t. Social media does not radicalize people to support left wing causes, but the self righteous phony nationalism disguised as patriotism on the right is what helped lead to the invasion of Iraq. Maybe I have been brainwashed by Twitter and Facebook, but I prefer to live in a country where people band together against breast cancer instead of killing innocent civilians in Iraq.

  1. Yes, by all means, people, stop communicating on social networks. The founders did not want us to talk openly with one another about politics- they made that CLEAR, because god forbid we might be informed about and active in our political system.

  2. This is a mind in deep deterioration. The center of his brain is screaming for quiet and a dark room.

  3. OMG! Its like he goes to bed every night thinking whats the most absurd obnoxous thing I can think off, then he has a few cocktails, pops his pills and the bipolar, paranoid personality disorder Really kicks in. Then the schizophrenia. His brain must look like a bowl of cottage cheese. It is obscene and insulting that he can sit back and dick around with everyones brain. He gets off on the fact that he can manipulate his victims who actually believe what he says is true. But, like any kind off addict he has to keep that HIGH going and going. Then, here comes Glen Beck, Hannity, and Sarah Palin. Now he has some competition. There are other people who are also Batshit crazy like him. Who Knew??? So, now the game is bigger and much more fun. A much bigger Pot of Absurbity and Blatant Lies to stir. And the millions of income that He, Beck, and Palin make is just the cherry on top. This is what Mental Illness looks like. And its a very ugly picture.

  4. “Don’t say I want to make a difference, because Hitler made a difference.”

    Yeah…and…and don’t listen to radio ’cause Hitler used radio.

  5. Tell Rush to explain Palin’s use of Facebook. It gets her on the main stream news outlets as if it’s a formal press release to the world.
