Benghazi Rush Limbaugh The Daily Banter

Drunk-Sounding Rush Limbaugh Tries Desperately to Link Benghazi with Ferguson

That took longer that I thought. After nearly two weeks of tensions in Ferguson, MO, far-right radio has finally shoehorned the crisis into its ongoing Benghazi and IRS narratives. I’m seriously shocked that it didn’t happen sooner, a sign that perhaps the screechers are feeling a little slow on the uptake given the outrage-boner they’ve been struggling to maintain for so long.

Speaking of which, Rush Limbaugh attacked the administration for sending FBI agents to Ferguson after allegedly refusing to send FBI agents to Benghazi or to investigate the IRS.

How many FBI agents investigated the, uuuuhhhhhhhhhhh, the tea party scandal there with the IRS? How many — how many — none! Is there? That’s right there were no FBI agents investigating what happened with [True the Vote head] Catherine Engelbrecht through the phone or any of the other tea party groups. Ah, see, okay, uhhh, how many FBI agents went to Benghazi to investigate what had happened over there? That was, uhhhhhhh, zero again. At least in the first two weeks. Zip, zero — now we were told that sending the FBI into Libya would be bad, bad, bad foreign policy — would not be kind to the host nation — it would not inspire confidence — it would be seen as an insult. So. See how many, uhh, FBI agents we sent to St. Louis? 40!! Four zero. 40 FBI agents are pounding the pavement in Ferguson, in St. Louis.

Right off the bat, is it me or does Limbaugh sound drunk or stoned? If you listen to the audio, it sounds like he’s really wrestling with his zotzed-out brain to form his thoughts here. It could just be that it’s not as easy for him to make shit up as it used to be. And that’s precisely what he’s doing here. Of course we shouldn’t expect Limbaugh or his dittoheads to understand the considerably long series of differences between the IRS non-scandal, the Benghazi consulate attacks and what’s happening right now in Ferguson. If that’s the case — if law enforcement should treat everything the same way, then perhaps his parking-lot-Oxycontin purchases should’ve been investigated with the same tenacity as an international drug cartel.

So, what about the FBI and Benghazi?… CONTINUE READING

    It’s become clear that, in the latest example of conservative projection, it’s actually Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and their ilk who are clearly and explicitly pushing for a race war.

    Unrelated topic: Bob, I apologize for taking this route, but is there anything you can do to help prompt an answer to why I’ve been suddenly banned from The Daily Banter??

    If, after years commenting in good standing, something I posted suddenly crossed a line so severely to warrant instant banning I’d appreciate at least the courtesy knowing what it was. Given that I’m seeing comments that I have to imagine at least toe a line, such as those essentially blaming James Foley for getting himself beheaded, from commenters who continue to comment I can’t imagine what I did to warrant my banning. Not just the deletion of an offensive comment (assuming there was one) but a removal of everything I’ve posted for the past month and a complete expulsion from the site. Without any warning or any response to respectful and polite requests for an explanation.

    I’m not asking you to fix anything, but since nobody at the Banter that I’ve contact has responded to any requests perhaps you’re more able to just get the message to them that I’d really appreciate knowing what happened. I’d certainly like an opportunity to fix it.

    Thank you.

      I’m sure it’s a glitch. And see, you’re posting right now.

        It’s no glitch. I’m posting to Bob’s area (www.bobcesca.com/) and have had no problem here.

        But at the main site, at thedailybanter,com itself, I’ve been unable to post for over a week. Any attempt to do so gets a “you have been banned” message.

        – I’ve individually and specifically been banned, I can’t post via any route.
        – The ISP I typically come through has been blocked, anyone who uses that route gets the “you’re banned” message.
        – Everything I’ve posted in the month prior to the banning has been removed, even comments as innocuous as “Don’t feed the trolls.” and those which received a couple dozen upvotes.

        And, most bothersome of all, not a single one of my “What happened? What did I do? How do I fix it?” requests to the folks who run the Banter has gotten any reply. As I said, after years of commenting without incident, suddenly I’m locked out most severely and nobody will even grant the courtesy to explain why.
