Limbaugh and HSUS

11 posts in this topic

I know this is going to be controversial.

I just read that Rush Limbaugh is now doing ads FOR the Humane Society of the US. This isn't your local animal shelter, but the large well-known anti-hunting organization.

I wanted to know what people's thoughts and feelings are on this?

You can email him at elrushbo@ebinet.com

Rush Limbaugh is crazy! He is what I like to call a conservative extremist. I guess that explains your confusion about him supporting the HSUS. You should be confused. The guy rarely makes much sense IMO. I am conservative myself, so I'm not saying this all as someone who thinks guns, hunting, and the conservative movement as a whole, are bad things. I strongly support the responsible freedoms of guns and hunting. I'm just saying that I think Limbaugh gives conservatives, and outdoorsmen like ourselves, a bad name. He makes us all out to be a bunch of crazy gun-toting hilbillies. Now here he goes, acting crazy again. Maybe he's just trying to infiltrate the HSUS so he can sabatage the whole orginization from within!

His spots are against being cruel to cats and dogs.

When did Rush make us out to be crazy gun-toting hillbillies? Hmm - you must have information most of us don't....

You and I know both know, that if the right liberal individual, supported an orginization that was against Limbaugh's political agenda, that he would be all over it! It's not about what he says in HIS ads, It's about what the orginization he is representing stands for as a whole. I'm sure I could find an example within the next 2 minutes.

Mongo, Sapper is right on. Doesn't matter that the spots he's doing are for nice little cats and dogs. HSUS is the biggest financial contributor to anti-hunting and animal use in the country. And for a guy who is generally considered pro these things (conservative platform) makes little sense and puts him at odds with all of us, if he wasn't already viewed as a fanatic.

they probably pay well.

I've always said that Rush is laughing all the way to the bank. If he says something controversial, he just gets more publicity, more listeners, and more money. What he says doesn't have to be correct.

I like Rush. (I don't get a chance to listen anymore, but used to listen to him in the early 1990s.)

The ad I have heard is an ad against organized dog fighting. I applaude him for this.

HSUS is still nothing more than an Anti-hunting group that joined forces in recent years with another group that specializes in lobbying in DC while retaining the HSUS name for recognitions purposes. Plus the fact that most people think of them as the cute puppy place. That may be true on the local level but nationally it is a complete ruse. Even many local efforts have had severe ethical issues.

Further, a few years back the NWTF published rankings from Charity Navigator that listed HSUS as very low on efficient use of donations scale while the conseravation groups were all right on top when the percent of donations actually going to the cause was measured.

It's always the anti's who speak the loudest, I'd like to see some other than crazy Ted speak up loudly like Jim Thome, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Ryan Klesko, Tubby Smith, Brad Penny, some people with a bit of clout that like to hunt and fish. Looks like Rush likes to eat meat anyway, any hockey guys out here..... As Don Koharski and Jim Schofield had a heated argument this is what I'd yell to Rush as well "have another doughnut".

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
