Sounds like poor Rush is desperate to get his audience back. It must be tough for him being so irrelevant.

I was on a CNN forum and saw this comment. It's just perfect.

Yes, if Limbaugh had something rammed down his throat as often as he claims, he'd have to STFU for a while. It's pretty pathetic how he plays the victim all the time. Poor bigot, racist, extremist, homophobe, dumbass prick doesn't like being called what he is, and is going to cry if we don't tolerate his intolerance.

Why are people still listening to this idiot? First time I heard him about 30 years ago... I thought he was an idiot then and he's even worse now. His ego is bigger just like his bank account. He and Bill O'Reilly ought to retire to their own private island somewhere... like Jurassic Park.

So speaks Mr. three or four marriages, failed, of course.

Self pity much, Rush? I have never heard such a CIRCUITOUS route of self promotion, making it all about HIM. HE is boo hooing about lack of tolerance?

It reminds me of after Gabby Giffords was shot, after Sarah Palin included a gun-sight over Gabby's name and then Sarah complained about HOW she was being victimized by the mean old left who complained about the gun-sight website.

Oh, give us a break, Rush! Waaah, why are all the meanie lefties so intolerant of the intolerant?

Tolerance isn't just some happy peanut butter that you slather on EVERYTHING, which magically makes everyone get along. It takes work, contemplative thought, and deliberate action to make sure you're making room in the world for everyone. But not every ideology DESERVES tolerance. There isn't any room for tolerance of irrational hate, or baseless rejection of good people.

He claims that in the midst of public celebration for Collins, anyone who says "I'm not big on that" gets labeled a bigot or more.

What, exactly, are they "not big on"? Gay people existing? Existing openly? People being true to themselves, and truthful to those around them? Are these really concepts to disdain?

I know. It's "homosexuality" that they aren't big on. So if you think that homosexuality isn't for you, THEN DON'T DO IT! No one will make you. But you don't ALSO need to condemn those who DO feel suited to it.

I'm not a bigot for being a cat-person over a dog-person, but I WOULD be if I were saying that dog-people deserve eternal torture for enjoying what suits them. I shouldn't be applauded if I run around telling dog-owners to keep it to themselves.

And the comparison to the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal. That was SEX we were hearing about. Has Jason Collins told us who he has sex with, and what they do together? No! He's only told us that he belongs to a minority which struggles with social acceptance (something which takes bravery, which is what he's really being celebrated for). THAT'S ALL HE'S SAID. He has not offered details of his sexual activities, and no one has asked him for any.

Rush, if someone is cramming something down your throat on TV or the radio, then CHANGE THE CHANNEL! If you can't find the remote, then check under that gigantic cushion you're sitting on. No one is going to force you to listen to anything against your will.

But don't expect "tolerance" for intolerant ideas, those concepts are incompatible. Find REAL reasons to accuse people of immorality, not simply because they enjoy something with other consenting adults that you don't.

Limbaugh, however, felt differently. "Why can't everyone just put your sexual preferences on Facebook and call it a day? Why do we need to stop everything and have a national day of celebration, or mourning, depending on your point of view... about this?" the radio host wondered on Tuesday. "And this tolerance only goes one way."

He complained that anyone who does not support Collins is called a "bigot," "racist," "extremist" or "homophobe." "There is no tolerance at all here," Limbaugh alleged. "Not only do these people have to publicly announce it, everyone else has to applaud and accept it."

"If you wanna say you're gay, fine, but does it have to be rammed down everyone's throats all the time?" he added.

WELL SAID RUSH!!! MY SENTIMENTS EXACTLY!!!

Maybe Rush is confusing Jason Collins with handfuls of the "prescription" meds that he's always shoving down his throat.

I'd almost think Rush was high all the time, but the stoners I know are WAY more lucid and aware of reality than Rush ever is.

I thought you hadn't HEARD of Blimpaugh, liar, now you are quoting him word for word all of a sudden?

It is so easy to catch you in your constant stream of lies, liar. You make it too easy for me.

So say no! Who's stopping you? I like it, so I'll say "yes", but that shouldn't stop you from saying no.
