Rush Limbaugh worries that Amanda Berry’s baby might have gotten welfare

Leave it to a Republican icon to find a new, sordid twist to the Amanda Berry kidnap story.

You see, Rush Limbaugh was watching TV.  And there was a show where a couple kidnapped underage girls, and then used the girls in order to get welfare payments from the government.

Rush-LimbaughSo Limbaugh expressed concern as to whether the kidnappers of Amanda Berry and the other two women got welfare as well.

Limbaugh noted, as part of his concern, that the kidnappers supposedly voted for Obama.

Yes, three women were rescued from human slavery, and Rush Limbaugh is worrying about whether the one woman’s child got welfare while being held captive.

Raw Story has some of the transcript, and you can find the audio below:

“But as it so happens, I happened last night to watch Hawaii Five-0 on CBS,” he explained. “Hawaii Five-O‘s premise last night was kidnapped girls held until they were 18 and then let go or killed — well, always killed — by a couple doing it for the welfare benefits.”

“Now I don’t know what happened in Cleveland, but I couldn’t help but make the connection. I mean, if everybody else in the low-information crowd is going to use what happens on TV for reality, why can’t I?”

Limbaugh added: “Three brothers, but not related the the three women, have been arrested in Cleveland — which voted Obama. Not that that’s got anything to do with anything!”

Welcome to the Republican party. (h/t FreakOutNation)

    I’m pretty sure none of the women in Rush’s basement get any medical treatment.

    Is this guy an idiot? You can’t just go to the welfare office and claim random children are yours! There’s a thing called a birth cirtificate!!! What is this guy’s issue with Obama??? Obama has NOTHING to do with kidnappings from over 10 years ago!!!! This Rush Limbaugh is just as cruel and insane as the damn kidnapper… he lives in his own sick reality too!!! This jerk just wants fame and money – He DOESN’T CARE about these victims! He just wants to hear himself talk and gain more publicity by talking about these poor girls! SICK!!!

    The idiot doesn’t know how hard it is to actually GET welfare. My friend is going through a nasty divorce, soon to be Ex is only providing her with 87.50 a week to LIVE ON. He didn’t pay her car payment so it was repossessed a few months ago so she doesn’t have any transportation either. Guess what, doesn’t qualify for food stamps or welfare. She’s got major medical issues (cancer, had stroke last summer) etc. But is not destitute enough for support. Think about that for awhile there Teapublicons.

    Then there’s his corporate masters who kidnap our democracy and pour money into our Congress to get themselves welfare and tax cuts.

    For God’s sake, would someone tell that bloated bloviating drug addict to shut his fucking pie hole already?

    She had a child by rape and he has, so far, not called her a slut at least seventy-nine times?

    Hell, he didn’t even mention the provocative clothing she was most likely wearing

    Is he slipping or simply a once-bitten twice-shy coward?

    I’m surprised he didn’t call them lazy for not escaping earlier.

    With Rush, it’s racism, anti-women, anti-gay, anti-NOT-Rush.

    And what it comes down to is that he has NO self-image except that which he inflates by beating down everyone else.

    That’s how we get the Republican ass blankets to reverse there aversion to Abortion.

    Well shit, I HOPE the kid got welfare.

  • olandp

    So Rush is grouping himself with “low information voters.” That certainly doesn’t surprise me, but I never thought he would admit it. I also thought keeping women in servitude, in marriage or other bondage, seemed to be more of a Republican ideal. Liberals want everyone to live up to their potential. It isn’t the other way around no matter what idiots like Rush would like the world to believe.

    LOL! Great minds think alike. ;-)

    I’ve touched upon this a day or two ago in the discussion of Limbaugh’s dwindling advertising revenue, but I figure I’ll repeat myself. I just have to wonder: how many people actually can stand two hours of Rush Limbaugh’s droning? I’ve listened to his show only very rarely and only in very small doses; most recently I subjected myself to a few clips immediately following the November elections. How true a true believer do you have to be to enjoy, or even endure, Limbaugh’s style of bloviation? He’s monotonous, long-winded, pads out his elocution with frequent repetition and what he probably imagines are significant pauses, and as he gets older he gets worse. Is this really entertaining to that many people?
    But then, I guess I don’t quite appreciate what a right-winger might consider to be sources of endless entertainment. I wouldn’t think that even the most fanatical evangelical Christian would be able to listen to the same sermons on the same few Bible passages over and over and over again but they do.

    Definitely off-topic here, but as I was preparing to exit this thread a link right above the comments box caught my eye.

    *** Chemist Tells Why He Doesn’t Vaccinate his Children ***
    No amount of bloviating by Rush ‘druggie’ Limpaugh has the potential to do as much damage as that People’s Chemist’s output.

    While venting this crap Rancid Rush inhaled a bit of oxygen that could have
    been used to keep an actual human being alive for a few more seconds.
    We can never get it back.

    “desperate”
    You stole my thunder, because the instant I saw the title of the post I told myself “the fat druggie is getting desperate”.

  • woodroad34

    Considering the violence of rape, torture, and kidnapping–all violent acts…more than likely these three brothers voted for Cheney, but got Bush instead.

    True dat! Trolls are bad enough but zombie trolls like Rush give dark, sewery, dank places a bad name.

  • Zorba

    Rush Limbaugh has always been a complete gas bag. He’s getting more and more desperate as he gets older, and his listeners drift off to even wackier sites- whether radio, cable TV, or the Internet. So he says more and more outrageous shit.

    If mothers get welfare, doesn’t that mean the fetuses are too, and should be aborted to be arrested for double dipping. Just say’un.
