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?

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.

I heard Rush today and I also found it over the top. I respected Robin Williams´ talent, but I was easily wearied over him. I find the same to be true of Rush Limbaugh. His comments about hoping this does not prompt copycat suicides did not sound sincere at all. To me it almost sounded like a dare.

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.

Yet despite the nail-biting closeness of state contests to decide which party will control the Senate, Michelle Obama has been largely absent from the campaign trail so far. She has her reasons, Democrats say: Mrs. Obama hates to be away from her daughters. She loathes Washington’s toxic politics. She resents Republicans for their opposition to her husband’s agenda. But she also believes some Senate Democrats have been insufficiently supportive of her own efforts to end childhood obesity.

Pelosi has publicly urged former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president and said if Clinton does decide to run she would win.

WASHINGTON — Julia Pierson, the director of the Secret Service, is resigning in the wake of several security breaches, according to administration officials. The resignation came less than a day after lawmakers from both parties assailed Ms. Pierson’s leadership and said they feared for the lives of the president and others in the protection of the agency. A 30-year veteran of the Secret Service, Ms. Pierson was supposed to have been the one to repair the agency’s reputation after scandals that raised questions about a culture that gave rise to incidents involving drinking and prostitution during overseas trips.

ATLANTA - Gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM) make up 2 percent of the U.S. population but are the group most definitively affected by HIV, with 63 percent of those newly infected by HIV representing this group. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s weekly “Morbidity and Mortality” report shows that among persons newly infected with HIV in 2010, 63 percent were men who have sex with other men. Among Americans living with HIV, 52 percent were MSM – and a significant number of men with HIV are not receiving treatment. “Gay, bisexual, and other

An Arkansas gun range owner has declared her shooting range a "Muslim-free zone," saying she refuses to cater to customers whose religion "commands" its followers to kill people. Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range owner Jan Morgan said in an online post that she was banning Muslims out of fear that one of them might slaughter other customers. "This is not a coffee and donut shop. This is a live fire indoor shooting range," Morgan wrote in the bizarre missive, posted Sunday and reported by the Arkansas Times. "The Koran (which I have read and studied thoroughly) … contains 109 verses commanding hate, murder

Nearly 35,000 walruses were discovered this month on a northwest Alaskan shore as result of being unable to find sea ice to rest upon, a problem aggravated by climate change, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said. The unusually massive walrus gatherings were first spotted on Sept. 13 when NOAA conducted its annual arctic marine mammal aerial survey, a spokeswoman told the Associated Press. The marine mammals use sea ice as diving platforms to hunt for food in shallow areas, or as resting points to avoid long, exhausting swims. While it is normal for sea ice to recede into

Ever get the sense that the middle class is downwardly mobile, being pressed to the floor and squeezed to the limit? It’s not happening by accident. Someone is doing the squeezing: a new class of entertainment and tech plutocrats, cheered on and abetted by a priesthood of media, government and academic elites.(snip) This New Class, for instance, venerates the city and despises suburbia. They think you should feel the same way — and in innumerable magazine and newspaper pieces, they twist facts to make it sound as if America loves living in apartments and taking trains to work.

The United States informed Iran in advance of its intention to strike Islamic State militants in Syria and told Tehran that it would not target the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a senior Iranian official told Reuters. "Iran was concerned about Assad´s position and his government being weakened in case of any action against IS (Islamic State) in Syria and brought this issue up in meetings with Americans," a senior Iranian official said on condition of anonymity. "This issue was first discussed in Geneva and then was discussed thoroughly in New York where Iran was assured that Assad and

Former Virginia senator Jim Webb said today he is "seriously" considering a 2016 presidential bid, and will make a decision within the next two to five months. "I am seriously looking at the possibility of running for president," Webb, a Democrat, said in an appearance at the National Press Club. "We´ve had a lot of discussions among people I respect and trust about the future of this country, and we´re going to continue to have these discussions over the next two to five months," he said.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
