   ‘’’’and I must say that it is damned time that someone other than bloggers started to call out this piece of trash for what he really is.

Pima Co. Sheriff Clarence Dupnik calls Limbaugh "irresponsible"

by Lefty Coaster     Mon Jan 10, 2011
Today on his show Limbaugh attacked Sheriff Dupnik:

"it has led to a number of people making abject fools of themselves. The Sheriff of Pima County has made a fool of himself," Rush Limbaugh said.

Then Dupnik called out Limbaugh:

Arizona Sheriff Blasts Rush Limbaugh for Spewing 'Irresponsible' Vitriol

The Arizona sheriff investigating the Tucson shooting that left U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords critically wounded had harsh words today for those engaging in political rhetoric, calling conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh "irresponsible" for continuing the vitriol.

"The kind of rhetoric that flows from people like Rush Limbaugh, in my judgment he is irresponsible, uses partial information, sometimes wrong information," Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said today. "[Limbaugh] attacks people, angers them against government, angers them against elected officials and that kind of behavior in my opinion is not without consequences."

Huzzahs for Sheriff Clarence Dupnik for standing up to the Bully of the American Right and calling out Limbaugh's message laced with intolerance and bigoted smears for what it really is.

"To try to inflame the public on a daily basis, 24 hours a day, seven days a week has impact on people," the Pima County Sheriff Clarence W. Dupnik said.


Clarence Dupnik doesn't back down to Bullies like Limbaugh. I LOVE THAT!

Rush Limbaugh: Democrats Seek "to Profit Out of Murder"

In his first comments on the tragedy, Limbaugh lashed out at the Democratic Party as one that "seeks to profit out of murder," Roll Call reports, citing Limbaugh's comments as aired on a Tucson station. The Roll Call report also quotes Limbaugh saying that the political left "openly wishes for such disaster in order to profit from it."

The transcript of the program posted to Limbaugh's website, which appears to be incomplete, does not include those quotes.

That Limbaugh has to edit out his more inflammatory diatribes today of all days speaks volumes about the toxic garbage he broadcasts on a daily basis.

Then Rush really starts frothing at the mouth and making wild charges of a sinister Democratic conspiracy:

Don't kid yourself.  What this was all about is shutting down any and all political opposition and eventually criminalizing it. Criminalizing policy differences, at least when they differ from the Democrat Party agenda.  One of the more disturbing things about this incident is that someday the left will finally get their wish.  One of these days it's going to happen.  This is all setting the table for it.

How anyone can take Limbaugh's fantasies seriously is beyond my comprehension, but Rush's Dittohead listeners eat this stuff up.

Beck, Limbaugh Playing with Facts in Giffords Blame Game

Rush Limbaugh is also playing with the facts when he claims no one has real facts. Limbaugh said defendant Jared Lee Loughner's family has "hired" defense attorney Judy Clarke who also represented the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski. The New York Times says she is a public defender and has been assigned to Loughner and not hired by the family.

Limbaugh asks where's the evidence to blame the right wing? Perhaps he should be asking where he gets his facts from--being wealthy enough to hire a defense attorney and having a public defender are two very different details which Limbaugh ought to be able to get right if he's going to argue the minutiae of facts versus opinion.

Everyone who denounced the atrocities in Arizona said so hours after the shooting and didn't wait until Monday. Why the delay from commentators Beck and Limbaugh? It's not because they didn't want to jump to conclusions. Anyone can post a message and take a few moments to add their voices to the outcry of outrage at the shootings.

The vicariously viscous gasbags of the Right can strike up a chorus of "Who us?" all they want, but most Americans aren't their gullible listeners. Americans have heard Right Wing Hate Talk Radio first hand. Its message dripping with vitriol, and filled with historical revisions that would have made Stalin blush with embarrassment.
