Rush Limbaugh: Left Will “Normalize” Pedophilia Like It Did Gay Marriage


There is an effort underway to normalize pedophilia. Yep. And it has two aspects to it. One is that sex with children doesn’t hurt them. Kids like it, and so do adults, and there’s nothing wrong with it. It is something… I want to take you back. I want you to remember the first time, wherever you were, that you heard about gay marriage, and I want you to try to recall your reaction — your first gut reaction — when you heard that some activists or somebody was trying to promote the notion of gay marriage. What was your initial reaction?

‘Aw, come on. It’ll never happen. That’s silly. What are you talking about?’

There is a movement on to normalize pedophilia, and I guarantee you your reaction to that is probably much the same as your reaction when you first heard about gay marriage. What has happened to gay marriage? It’s become normal — and in fact, with certain people in certain demographics it’s the most important issue in terms of who they vote for. So don’t pooh-pooh. There’s a movement to normalize pedophilia. Don’t pooh-pooh it. The people behind it are serious, and you know the left as well as I do. They glom onto something and they don’t let go.”

America’s voice of reason, Rush Limbaugh, addressing an article from The Guardian, Paedophilia: Bringing Dark Desires to Light“, on his radio program via Politico.

    F%#k you Rush! Cersley what’s wrong with people like him?

  • yaoming

    Isn’t this guy an illegal Viagra-toting , teenaged prostitute sex tourist?

  • hf2hvit

    Well, he should be thrilled. Remember him coming back from the Dominican Republic with somebody else’s Viagra? The Dominican Republic known in the crime world as one of the world’s top destinations for selling child sex.

  • 2eo

    Rush Limbaugh would know all about paedophilia. Sadly he is wrong, the profiles of nearly all people convicted of child molestation shows them to be racist, violent, right wing leaning psychopaths.

    Same with rapists.

  • Cam

    He, Sean Hannity etc.. all lost ratings after the election. Rush has to ramp up the fear to try to keep his remaining listeners tuning in.

    My guess is, he is going the way of Glen Beck, he is going to get so out there that he will keep losing sponsors and listeners.

  • schwma

    Why couldn’t he have OD’d and we’d wouldn’t have to him spew that filth anymore.

  • the other Greg

    Hmm, looks like Elton John’s “outreach” project didn’t work!

  • mll1985

    Why does an article printed in the UK have any application to the US “left”?

    The UK article is incredibly disturbing and leave it to Rush to take it to another extreme to use fear-mongering to coerce a naive right into buying his BS.

  • LaTeesha

    Further proof that abusing drugs can lead to long term brain damage.

  • Caliban

    You mean the same Rush Limpballs who was caught with a suitcase full of V-iagra coming back from a country well known for its child prostitution trade? The thing I’ve always found most suspicious about that story wasn’t that he had boner-pills that weren’t prescribed to him but WHERE he had them. Let’s just say I’d be very leery of letting him babysit.

    He’s probably referring to that article someone wrote about pedophilia being a “sexual orientation.” Considering that all available research pretty much says that pedophiles don’t change, don’t stop being sexually attracted to children despite ‘treatment,’ in that way it probably IS a sexual orientation. Which is not AT ALL the same thing as saying that children under the age of consent CAN give consent, that sex without consent is rape, or that should ever change. So far as I know, NO ONE outside a few very sick people has ever suggested otherwise.

  • 2eo

    @Caliban: He’s stirring the pot, he knows his core beliefs are gone, they’re history, they are worth less to him than the bodies of the heroic veterans he spits on every single hour of every single day.

    He has lost, people like him are losing everywhere in the damn world, and it is awesome.

  • Little-Kiwi

    I actually look forward to this man’s slow, lonely, painfully protracted death.

    and when he’s dead, i encourage the youth of america to go out for a great big taco bell dinner, which they should then defecate all over his grave.

  • Aidan8

    @Little-Kiwi: LOL Please, Kiwi, don’t hold back. No need to be PC… tell us how you really feel about Rush. ;)

  • Aidan8

    You know, if you take enough Oxy the whole world is a pedophile…. right Rush?


    If the worm infested anus of a c0ckroach could have an opinion…

    [wtf We can’t even say c-ckroach!?! stoopid stoopid site.]

  • CaptainFabulous

    Didn’t he promise to leave the US and move to Mexico if Obamacare passed? Why are you still here Rush? What’s that, you’re a lying sack of shit? Yeah, I think we all figured that out a long time ago.


    Or the dried menstrual crust of a bat uterus queefing sonorously in a shit covered cave

  • mcflyer54

    Someone please make sure to bring this article to the attention of Elton John. Sir Elton, who for $1,000,000 sang at Rush’s 4th wedding (so much for the sanctity of marriage), insists that Limbaugh isn’t a homophobe and isn’t really opposed to gay marriage. Well, regardless of Limbaugh’s personal stand on issues such as gay marriage, he’s making a ton of money by promoting hatred and bigotry and gay idiots like Elton John who think that it’s just an “act” are total fools.

  • Little-Kiwi

    @mcflyer54: that one million dollars when straight to Elton’s AIDS foundation.

    elton did not personally profit from that performance. instead, this bigot ended up donating 1 million dollars to an AIDS charity.

    you should know that very important detail.

  • DragonScorpion

    Well that’s just excellent then, Rushbo, your dates can finally be legal.

  • deanpierce

    I’m sorry…..Rush WHO????

  • Chad Hunt

    I’m surprised he didn’t mention peoples aversion or revulsion to seeing mixed race couples. That’s always been a favorite of his.

  • mcflyer54

    @Little-Kiwi: that “very important detail” is of absolutely no importance to me. I couldn’t care less what Elton John did with the money – he defended a person that has worked hard to keep gays from obtaining equality. And, by allowing Rush to “donate” the million he also provided him with a hefty charitable tax right off – which, to me, is further disgusting.

  • Little-Kiwi

    @mcflyer54: then you are a sad and petty little man who will fail at life for picking the wrong battles for the wrong reasons.

    “i don’t care that 1 million dollars went to an AIDS charity! i’m sticking to my opinion!”, said the idiot.

  • jackpapa

    Wait, wait…he may have a point. Remember the first time you heard Rush Limbaugh speak? Think back. Way back. Didn’t you think “This guy is nuts! How does a guy this stupid get through a day without accidently killing himself?” Then gradually, over time, over a long long time you came to realize….no wait. I’m wrong. I STILL think he’s too stupid to live. His point is garbage. Never mind.

  • Hunter

    “Kids like it,” etc., etc. — wasn’t that what we were hearing from Catholic bishops not too long ago? And Rush considers them leftists?

  • murphy0071

    Rush just wants his own kindergarten classes across the U.S. for immoral purposes. Since heterosexuals are highly more likely to molest children, Rush is looking for special treatment for him and his molester friends. Read the medical literature you uneducated boobs. The work by Groth and Birnbaum found no homosexuals among over 100 molesters of male children. Heterosexuals, who believe they are superior to all sexes, just love tight little holes. Unless, they wanted to disappear into an anal abyss, they would not touch Rush unless they are looking for oxycontin.

  • mcflyer54

    @Little-Kiwi: I’m well beyond the point in my life where I need to worry about failure. I have donated thousands of dollars, as well as thousands of volunteer hours, to AIDS organizations since the mid-1980’s and never once expected any big name performer to give me a concert in order to justify my donations. How much money did Mr. Limbaugh give to Elton’s AIDS charity before his wedding performance (and great big charitable tax deduction)?

    If Elton wants to believe that this blood money wasn’t earned via the hatred Rush Limbaugh spews daily then i guess that it is his choice. But the reality is that’s exactly how Rush earns his millions. And I find it pretty amazing that someone who would post the following statement would have the audacity to call someone else petty.

    “I actually look forward to this man’s slow, lonely, painfully protracted death.
    and when he’s dead, i encourage the youth of america to go out for a great big taco bell dinner, which they should then defecate all over his grave.”

  • Yelper

    It’s hard to believe anybody would even listen to, much less take seriously, anything that fat old irrelevant drug addict has to say. Besides being a nut case he’s consistently been wrong on just about everything he has ever had to talk about.

  • Little-Kiwi

    then you should know that taking 1 million dollars from a pig-bigot and getting it to an AIDS charity is a good thing.

    yes. the money made by Rush from his insane bigotry ended up being used for good. by someone else. via their AIDS charity.

    and i stand by my first statement, too. i’m glad that money went to the AIDS charity. and i do encourage the youth of the future to defecate on this man’s grave.

    it’s very simple – elton was offered money to perform, elton took that cool million and put it directly, every cent, into an AIDS charity.

    and you’re angry about it. uh….ok.

  • LandStander


    Awww, this argument reminds me of Major Barbara, an excellent work by George Bernard Shaw! Does it matter more where the money comes from, or what use it is put toward?


    I get SO TIRED of you guys clutching the Panic Pearls every time Rush Limbaugh (AKA the “BIG, FAT, PILL-POPPIN’ IDIOT”) opens his idiotic, Big, Fat, Pill-Poppin’ Mouth to say something homophobic (even by proxy). At this point, is his schtick really even relevant? Are you surprised when lets forth a homophobic, Vicodin-tinged Mouth Fart? REALLY, People. It’s how he makes his dime. At our expense. We ALL know what we’re dealing with here. IGNORE the B*tch and he WILL go away. I wouldn’t devote One Ounce of my time to this No-Neck Skeez… :(

  • Avenger

    I adore this man. Handshake for Rush!


    @Avenger: You would… :(

  • D9W

    Wait a minute, the Right wing already did that- Can you say Larry Craig? And Rush supported his toe tapping.

    Rush is still on the air? I figured he was trashed when Obama was re-elected. It has been so long that I quit watching him that I do not even remember the Chanel he is on. (Obviously, it means that any of the advertisers supporting other broadcasters on the same channel never get to my eyes or ears.)

  • Harley

    “Limbaugh”, N. defined as a flemball but blown out the ass instead. See also, “explosive diarrhea “.

  • gaym50ish

    For a list of Limbaugh sponsors you can boycott, go to

    Generally, the gay boycotts have been effective, whereas the anti-gay ones have flopped. Compare the success of the Coors boycott that Harvey Milk started in the 1970s to the failed anti-gay Baptist boycott of Disney. To this day, it’s hard to find a Coors in a gay bar, even though the boycott officially ended in 1995. The Baptists, on the other hand, can’t even get their own members to boycott Disney.

    In the Chick-fil-A war, the homophobes think they won because the gay boycott led to a massive counter-protest. But Chick-fil-A’s BrandIndex rating of consumer perception plummeted, so I consider that a success for our side. Boycotts do work, especially for the gay community if they get enough publicity.


    Rush Bimboo, is a mentally ill who is suffering sever mental poverty.

  • Kernos

    The Right has already normalized Rape in their minds.

  • SkeeterVT

    That tears it. Rush Limbaugh has now gone completely off the rails and plunged head first into Crackpot Paranoialand. It really sad to see this man collapse into such depths on the air.


    The Bible should be banned!

    Here are several really loving excerpts from the Torah; the first five books of the Old Testament in the bible — perhaps read to the congregation on Friday night at a synagogue or a Sunday morning church in the meadow.

    1. Kill any friends or family that worship a god that is different than your own. Deuteronomy 13:6-10
    2. Kill all the inhabitants of any city where you find people that worship differently than you. Deuteronomy 13:12-16
    3. Kill everyone who has religious views that are different than your own. Deuteronomy 17:2-7.

    Rabbinical / Priestly rules:
    Leviticus 21:17-18 … “No one who is blind or lame or has a defect or any blemish may approach to offer the bread of his God.”
    Leviticus 18:22 … “You are not to go to bed with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination ….”

    Rabbis; the pope and churches fully aware that Leviticus 18:22 applies to rabbis and priests … refuse to remove this stigma maliciously persecuting gays. Kids are being bullied into suicide …!

    Being black, left-handed or being gay is just as natural. It is a sometimes rare occurrence to fall in Love and to hold that person in your heart and be loved in return … it is something that should be celebrated! If it’s between two guys or two girls — all the better. It takes even more courage to defend that LOVE!

    I am the son of a catholic father who never went to church and a protestant mother who took us to church and Sunday school. Onward christian soldiers; I think not. Such absolute drivel. To be manipulated by a santa claus; an easter bunny and worst of all a bogus cross?

    It’s now time to shut down the synagogues and churches with the torah & bibles with Leviticus 18:22 and Deuteronomy 13:12-16. To see the religious lunatics manipulate government and peoples’ lives — is shameful.

    Many theologians state quite correctly that the birth; crucifixion; resurrection and other elements of christianity actually didn’t even happen! Churches are committing hate crimes and more succinctly a violent criminal offence against a federally protected minority namely the gay community. It is actually a bigger moment in history … gays standing up for equality … the realization that there is something far more evil at work — hateful religion which should be discharged from society – period.

    Religion and the churches should now be exposed as a bigoted structure that gets away with hate mongering. It is a criminal offence to cause harm onto others physically or with written items; torahs – old testament/new testament bibles have been getting away with corruption and cultism based on bogus hocus pocus.

    There is no scientific evidence to prove any of the cross related bogus elements of christianity and other religions. Our early human ancestors; on this earth … go back more than 6 million years … 5,996,000 years before the Greeks, Romans and the Jews. Christianity is basically a 2013 year old fictional cult. In the year 300 AD when Emperor Constantine, who to some was the first pope; went on to fabricate & market Christianity! Christianity is a fantasy; which turned out to be one of the most hateful & evil concoctions ever perpetrated on the world.

    It is written; so therefore it shall be? We are the chosen people; such a wicked fantasy.

    Einstein stated in a letter recently auctioned that the bible was a collection of primitive legends. He said believing in God was childish and he as a Jew is no different than another person and are not chosen by God.

    The pope is running a bigger fraud than Madoff’s $50 billion ripoff.

    Today’s evangelical extremists are like the nazis who cast others into ovens & are actually supremacists – who practice their bogus hocus pocus – and are trying to suppress and deprive others of their happiness and their legal rights in an open and proud society.


    The Republican Party; has self-destructed — on the grounds of homophobia & religious corruption!

  • Dinodogstar

    lying, hateful, misleading, drug addict, hate-monger, bs artist, fucin fat ass hillbilly bastrd..he’s nothing but an embarrassment to those of us in Missouri, emphasis on the ass part…try to remember he’s tucked away in the same locale as the beverly Hillbillies originated from. He must be seeking attention yet again, saying hatefully provocative, incredible shocking, dishonest, attention-headline-grabbing bs, just to pump up those ratings and reap the financial gains in doing so. Am I a complete dic for saying I welcome his end, and have no remorse about it– gladly waiting for the inevitable early heart attack he is bringing on himself.? Why are we giving him the pleasure of being offended, and that goes for Ann as well. Hate these pompous, right-wing shock jocks/celebs that thrive on pushing buttons, at the weaker persons’ expense. How do they sleep at night?

  • Dinodogstar

    Bullies only thrive and survive when given the opportunity to oppress those they attack. Ignoring him hopefully will serve the lgbt community better. I think. But like a rash, this needs a solvent, with targeted attention to reach the desired state of normalcy and healing. (But, no, I don’t plan to rub him out…)

  • Rob

    @Dinodogstar: “lying, hateful, misleading,…bs artist,..He must be seeking attention yet again, saying hatefully provocative, incredible shocking, dishonest, attention-headline-grabbing bs, just to pump up those ratings and reap the financial gains in doing so.”

    Sorta like the way Queerty neglected to offer the full quote which contained his main point in that there are those who don’t have a problem with pedophilia? One could guess that they purposefully left out that part knowing full well that Pavlov’s dogs would come along and slobber their hatred of Rush and NEVER bother to address the overall point that he made. They posted half the story with the full intention of provoking the hate in their readers. It’s “attention-headline-grabbing bs, just to pump up those ratings and reap the financial gains of doing so” right before your very eyes.

    “Am I a complete dic for saying I welcome his end, and have no remorse about it– gladly waiting for the inevitable early heart attack he is bringing on himself.?”

    Yes, and especially for not having the slightest bit of curiosity of the overall point. Your hate undermined you just like the other commenters here. Lots of BS flung around like so much monkey poo by them as well. But I suppose the ends justify the means. One wonders if they got off venting their hatred and bullying.

    So we have 40-some comments vomiting hatred of Rush and how many showing their disgust for pedophilia and those who don’t think it’s any big deal? Sad, no?

  • LadyL

    @Rob: The “overall point” Rush Limbaugh is clearly making is that there is a straight line connecting pedophilia and gay marriage– and THAT is the ignorant, irresponsible, totally bigoted message that all of the commenters here are appropriately addressing.
    To suggest, as you do, that in registering our outrage at Limbaugh’s gay-baiting idiocy we are somehow giving a pass to the horror of pedophilia and “those who don’t think it’s any big deal” (and who would that be, by the way?) is truly what is sad. To say the absolute least.

  • Matt

    Very true. The left tries to normalize everything. The gay community, which consists mostly of lefties, rarely, if ever, condemns NAMBLA.

  • Matt

    @Kernos: Bug chasers want to get HIV/AIDS. That’s kind of bizarre.

  • Matt

    @Avenger: At least he speaks his truth and isn’t politically correct like all the lefties.

  • Shannon1981

    Rush is absolutely insane. He is irrelevant, has lost many of his advertisers due to what he said about Sandra Fluke, and now he will lose even more for this rhetoric. It is no longer acceptable to say things like this in public except in those extremist right wing circles full of paranoid bigots who know that they have lost this war.

  • gaym50ish

    Because the Republican Party has been shanghaied by the religious right, corporations now walk a fine line between promoting their business interests and offending their customers and employees. They have to support Republican candidates because of their business interests, but they can no longer afford to support the candidates or broadcasters who are homophobic.

    Supporting gay causes is no longer the political suicide that it once was — if it were, Obama would not have been re-elected. And corporations are beginning to take their cues from a more gay-friendly public.

    Walgreens, Papa John’s, Arby’s, ProActiv and others have dropped their advertising on Rush Libmaugh’s show, and others will follow. Soon he’ll be without a job and without a pulpit.

  • Rob

    @LadyL: “The “overall point” Rush Limbaugh is clearly making is that there is a straight line connecting pedophilia and gay marriage”

    Sorry Lady. That’s the point he was “clearly making” according to the liberals. You have to go back and actually read or listen to what he said and not what Queerty tells you he said. They conveniently left out the important part. Wonder why (/sarc).

    ““those who don’t think it’s any big deal” (and who would that be, by the way?)”

    READ the article, Lady. It’s linked above. Clearly none of the gays on Queerty have any interest in being informed, they just want to be led.

  • Rob

    @gaym50ish: “if it were, Obama would not have been re-elected.”

    You know, I keep wondering why he was re-elected. Glad there’s somebody out there who will attempt to explain it. I just don’t remember him campaigning on his support for gay causes. Can you help refresh my memory? Must’ve been buried under the bullshit ad about Romney killing that guy’s wife.
