Quote# 78956

A right-wing radio host has told his audience of millions that the tragic events in Arizona at the weekend, where six people died and 14 were wounded during a murder attempt on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, has nothing to do with guns and everything to do with metal music.

Texan band Drowning Pool were forced to defend their song Bodies after it was revealed the murder suspect, Jared Loughner, liked the song. They pointed out the track was about the “brotherhood of the mosh pit” and the subject was “respect, not violence.”

But Limbaugh claims the right-wing pro-guns stance had no influence on the attacks, while heavy music did.

He says: “The guy listened to heavy metal, and some of that anarchist stuff. We’re dealing with an insane individual.

“It’s the liberals, not us conservatives, who glorify criminal behaviour and violent imagery. They say it’s art.”

Sounds like he needs to learn about the difference between correlation and causation.

Anyways, if I understood correctly Loughner favorited a video on youtube with this song and some dude burning an american flag. Could it possibly be the burning he liked, not the song specifically? Please correct me if I'm wrong, it might have been Loughner who uploaded the video in the first place

Also, this obsession with what caused him to shoot people is extremely silly. Perhaps because he was insane? Stop blaming Palin and shitty music.

Blaming the music/videogames/movies for the stuff ill and/or horrible people do is so last millenium(and ignorant, and assumptive, and rather evasive in a way), dammit.

Though rush wouldn't know that...He's not very bright.

Rush Limbaugh, do the world a favor and shut up.

1/22/2011 11:11:18 AM

heavy metal, and some of that anarchist stuff

The Devil doesn't care for heavy metal. He's into New Age Music.

Ban Yanni now before it's too late.

Rush, take your head out of your ass and call me back.

The only part he got right was that Loughner had gone off the rails. All else is made of bullshit and fail.

1/22/2011 11:23:34 AM


*Facepalm* Oh the stupid, it hurts.

So Rush (the windbag) is trying to blame a song for a massacre???

What the fuck?

1/22/2011 11:38:32 AM


Ooh, Drowning Pool. So anarchist and rebellious.

All the bands people blame for these atrocities are hardly even shocking and are generally "rebel" music for mainstream followers. It's even cute and quaint to see old men like Limbaugh blame bland tripe like Drowning Pool.

So, if the perpetrator liked hamburguers, does it mean that MacDonalds should be forbidden?,or more likely THE MEAN BY WHICH HE ACTUALLY DID IT?

Blaming the entertainment industry is SO 1999

I'm pretty sure you're fucking retarded, Mr. Limbaugh.

Rush needs to shut the fuck up. Obviously, he has no idea about what he's even talking about anymore.

1/22/2011 12:43:58 PM


did he ever?

1/22/2011 12:45:06 PM


You know, I should be surprised by such bullshit, but...

...well, it's fucking Rush Limbaugh.

1/22/2011 1:01:19 PM


Damn fucking right, Limbaugh, we're dealing with an insane individual, not his taste in music. His taste in music is entirely irrelevant and was tacked on to give you equally despicable fucks a way to profit off another tragedy and get your name out there as much as possible.

1/22/2011 1:04:27 PM


I'm surprised we haven't had the usual suspect chime in with his 'durrr, all umuricanns are stupiddd' comment yet.

It might be appropriate here though, because that's what most of the world think when they read idiotic crap like this.

1/22/2011 1:10:09 PM


*Falls on face Anime style*

The stupidity it hurts!

1/22/2011 1:12:17 PM


I think Sacred Reich would like a word with you about assigning blame to heavy metal..


I hate it when they blame 'teh hevee metulz'

1/22/2011 1:16:22 PM


Metal music gets blamed yet you have yet to show that Loughner should not have had weapons. It was Loughner's fault. The gun is a tool. Metal music is nothing more than entertainment. Also if you are going to blame metal music, then your far right colleagues are equally at fault you fuckstick.

1/22/2011 1:22:07 PM


This shit again?

1/22/2011 1:25:31 PM


If this is the kind of idiocy that is listened to on the radio, then America is lost. This gobshite seems to believe that you can kill people with 'music'. the bottom line is this, the free availability of guns means that any dingbat, regardless of the music he/she listens to can blow off someone's head. Perhaps the next head to be blown off might be Limbaugh's. I'm sure he'll join in the general approval/
