Rush Limbaugh: Robin Williams killed
himself due to ‘leftist world view’

Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 8/12/2014 6:30:38 PM

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh argued Tuesday that Robin Williams committed suicide because of his “leftist world view.” “What is the left’s world view in general?” Mr. Limbaugh asked listeners. “If you had to attach, not a philosophy, but an attitude to a leftist world view. It’s one of pessimism, and darkness, sadness. They’re never happy, are they?” (snip) “[Liberals] are animated in large part by the false promises of America, because the promises of America are not for everyone,” he said. “He had it all, but he had nothing. Made everybody else laugh, but was miserable inside. It fits a certain

Limbaugh is despicable. A man is dead. Is it so hard to give up the cheap political shots for a few days. The man has no class.

Like many of you, I heard Mr.Linbaugh´s comments today and came away with nowhere near the negativity with which I was left after reading this article!

His comments were made in a conversational tone with all deference to the solemnity of this sad occurrence.

People commit suicide out of materialist or worldly world view, which cuts through left and right and through all espoused religions - i.e., when they hit bottom they don´t turn to spiritual answers.

What is "dithpicable" is giving a minute to yet another cockeyed liberal clown Hollywood suicide when Christian children heads are on pikes and we don´t know
"What´s in your Mosque" and just where La Raza and the cartels ("The Race" who wants "gringos" dead) are going to perform yet crime against humanity down on the Rio Bravo.

Williams money and smart mouthing about which 99.99 percent he was clueless will certainly be missed by Nancy but not for too long; they are all too self absorbed and when they get so angry they can´t stand it they loop a belt around their necks again not knowing what they do.

The comic liberal genius is, in the end, wasted and gone with the wind.

Good afternoon religious fanatics, you moral imposers, you underminers of the Constitution, you trashers of the first amendment, you fundamentalist, narrow-minded, Bible-thumping, bigoted zealots. As a conservative I thought I´d address you in a fashion and manner to which I have grown accustomed.

It´s always a bubble with leftists, isn´t it? Can´t criticize, can´t use certain words, we are racist, sexist, intolerant, mean, homophobic and love war.

These bubble-headed leftist views inspire me to be a conservative that Haley´s M-O couldn´t move.

I said the same thing yesterday. He was a very talented man, and he did a lot of good with the USO and working with kids with cancer.

But he was a hard-core lie-beral. You know that means he walked around with all the lie-beral guilt for being successful. And it drove him crazy that he couldn´t persuade everyone else to be a hard-core lie-beral.

I have never known a happy old lie-beral. They get more and more miserable the older they get. It´s sad that his personal demons drove him to suicide, but I´m not surprised at all that he was depressed and an addict.

Although Rush is certainly entitled to say whatever he wants to say, he should understand that what comes out of his mouth rightly or wrongly gets attributed to his audience as well. What would be so hard about letting it rest, holding his tongue out of respect, and thereby showing some dignity and class?

I didn´t hear Limbaughs actual comments. I don´t listen to the man. My feelings are a man is dead. His family is devastated. If you want to comment today, your comments should be confined to his life, what god given talents he brought. Political views have no place. I´m going by the article and what I know of Limbaughs past. Robin Williams brought joy and happiness to so many. Isn´t that something even conservatives should celebrate?

If I read just this article, I would say oh my Rush is being cold and heartless. However, now that I know the content and tone of the radio program, I see a headline intending to leave a false impression. Robin Williams was a dearly beloved actor and his family knows that because of his great fame, there will be unending conversation about his death. It is the nature of fame. It is distasteful but it is not new to them. Very painful but not new. I don´t see anything wrong with acknowledging that many of us have seen firsthand how many liberals ARE more miserable as time goes on. I don´t think it´s wrong to point out the obvious.

I´m leaning toward the belief that he had a leftist world view BECAUSE of his depression rather than as a result of it. It seems common among the left. They always feel miserable, so naturally they do what feels good. Supporting causes that promise to save everyone would certainly feel good.

Have you ever been to a social event where conservatives and dem/comms are doing their best to get along? The conversation usually avoids politics, but when a dem/comm tries to make a joke or laugh at one, it is clearly forced. Their cheerfulness is also forced.
I know it is uncomfortable to be in the presence of the enemy, and their emotions betray that discomfort.

Rush should stick to politics and not trying to diagnose anyone´s depression from sitting in his studio. It´s dumb and unworthy of him, and depression can impact anyone... Churchill suffered depression all his life --- he called it his Black Dog. Was he liberal?

I heard the comment. This article is a hit piece - in the Washington Times! What Limbaugh also said was that he sincerely hopes that the big press given this suicide does not cause other people to try the same thing to get their moment fame - but he fears that it will.

Having experienced major depression of a loved one I cannot express a more robust disagreement with Limbaugh. Politics plays no role in depression. A very close love one that is extremely conservative has experienced the deepest of deep depression. It is all around them and has nothing, NOTHING, to do with politics. Rush needs to experience the hell of depression before he assigns some political meaning to it. To Hades with Rush and his exploitation of a disease us regular folks has to deal with.

Winston Churchill suffered from severe depression as did a number of historical figures including William Tecumseh Sherman and Abe Lincoln.

That said, there is a strong correlation between living in a totalitarian state and suicide, alcoholism, and so forth.

Robin Williams? Without knowing his history in details, its better not to speculate.

Some of the most callous comments at a time like this are made by those who obviously have never been seriously suicidal.

Suicide is much more complicated that politics. Those of you who have felt seriously suicidal don´t need to have this explained. Those of you who haven´t experienced it cannot possibly understand.

At a time like this, please be kind.

I actually knew Robin Williams. In person, and off camera, he was actually a pretty mellow guy. Although I was never much impressed with his Jonathan Winters schtick. There was only one Jonathan Winters.

Rush Limbaugh, on the other hand, has become a caricature of himself. I subscribe to his podcast and I don´t really know why. I guess I keep hoping he´ll return to the man he was back in the 90´s.

I usually listen each day, but today I was not able to. Even if Rush was taken out of context, his comments were inappropriate in more ways than one. My daughter suffers from clinical depression, and she is a not a liberal. She´s on medication and sees a therapist. Works full time with a family. But I´m always afraid of the day that life will just be too much.

I don´t know that I will ever listen to Rush Limbaugh again. Trying to tie depression to liberalism; he went too far. And he should not have tried to make this statement with such a beloved actor.

People don´t commit suicide because they want to die, they just want the pain to end. Clinical depression is robs you of the ability to see beyond the misery of the moment. We should be grateful for every day that God gives us, and avoid judgement of those whose suffering becomes unbearable.

#35 You have my sympathy. No one knows until you live it.

Not a fan of Rush. Let´s not get carried away. A man that made a lot of people laugh died by hanging himself. A sad day for his family and friends.

Personally, I think he had recently left rehab and would have been on antidepressants.
Sometimes they do the opposite and make the depression worse. He was depressed, but working, nothing indicated he was going to kill himself. Those intent on suicide usually give warning signs as a cry for help.

I don´t listen to Limbaugh very often anymore, but I think that he is making a very important point here. And if the can´t make it the day after Williams died, it is just a nuance to make it a year after he died. Same thing.

Liberalism IS killing the country. It would be interesting to see what it is doing to its die-hard standard bearers. And if it is killing these people, that is certainly not anybody´s fault but their own.

#44 -- The Catch-22 of some antidepressants is that they work in stages: first removing the paralysis that deep depression induces and then, days or weeks later, removing the depression itself.

There’s a perilous transition phase in the middle, in which the patient hasn’t recovered from the depression but has regained enough strength and will to act. I fear this may have been the case with Robin.

Although I usually agree with a fair percentage of the things Limbaugh says about politics, I think that he is way off on this score. Long term depression is an illness with physical causes. Unfortunately, the medical community is equally addicted to pushing expensive, prescription drugs as the answer before testing for vitamin or amino acid deficiencies or food allergies. The latter group just isn´t as profitable for the doctor and it is getting impossible to find an honest doctor anymore.

I did hear a portion of Limbaughs show and it was not exactly like this article portrays it.

With that said, I knew he was trying to make a nuanced point that would be misinterpreted by his opponents.

That is going to happen to Rush, Harry Reid, Sarah Palin, Nancy Pelosi....anyone who speaks out on these issues. I take it with a grain of salt.

There are many angles and sides to the Robin Williams story. The MAIN ONES are that he was very funny, very entertaining, very bright, and it is VERY sad that he is gone, and that depression is so overwhelming, and so hard to understand.

It was too early to try to make any small point about this. Rush jumped the gun.he cannot be critical of democrats turning a funeral into a political forum (which I agree was too early) and then start talking about this stuff before Robin Williams had gotten his due respect.

I like Rush and generally agree with him, but he did this too soon for me.

Their beef: the fossil fuels industry and other companies are profiting at the expense of the environment.

President Barack Obama, stumping for the Democrats ahead of November´s congressional elections, has twice invoked Ronald Reagan´s seminal campaign question: "Are you better off than you were four years ago?" Framing the debate like that helped Reagan twice - in 1980 when he beat incumbent Jimmy Carter, and then again in 1984 when he won re-election during an economic upswing. But a similar message has failed to resonate for Obama primarily for one reason: while he stresses the economy has improved in almost every aspect on his watch, average family incomes have slipped. Between 2009 when Obama took office

No, it will be drawn and dragged ... to its death, grave and destruction."

The group will be dressed in blue and meet at 9 a.m. in Battery Park to listen to speakers such as writer Naomi Klein before gathering for a mass sit-in on the steps of the exchange. The protesters will carry a 300-foot banner that says “Capitalism = Climate Chaos.

Pope Francis called Sunday for Muslims and all religious leaders to condemn Islamic extremists who “pervert” religion to justify violence, as he visited Albania and held up the Balkan nation as a model for interfaith harmony for the rest of the world. “To kill in the name of God is a grave sacrilege. To discriminate in the name of God is inhuman,” Francis told representatives of Albania’s Muslim, Orthodox and Catholic communities during a half-day visit to Tirana in which he recalled the brutal persecution people of all faiths suffered under communism. Francis wept when he heard the testimony of

He was sentenced on Friday to 18 months in federal prison and ordered to pay the government $400,000 in restitution.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The officer posted inside the front door appeared to

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
