Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians on Monday in the state Capitol.
The Associated Press described the induction as a “secretive ceremony.” The event was closed to the public and only certain guests, including more than 100 Republican lawmakers, were allowed to attend. Police stood guard outdoors to prevent uninvited guests from entering.
During his induction, Limbaugh repeatedly talked about his family. He described how his father had tried to pressure him into attending college. But Limbaugh had refused his advice and instead sought a career in radio.
The Speaker’s office and the people in his office have been under assault for wanting to do this,” Limbaugh said. “He hung in, he was tough, he did not give them any quarter, laughed at them when they called his office — which is what you have to do, because they are deranged. They literally are deranged. Our so-called friends on the other side of the aisle are deranged.”
Limbaugh’s bust will be displayed at the Capitol alongside other members of the Hall of Famous Missourians, including President Harry Truman and author Mark Twain.
Steven Tilley and the rest of the MO GOP, go fuck yourselves!
Speaking to reporters in Finland on Wednesday, Hillary Clinton said, “we expect president-elect Morsi, as he forms a government, to demonstrate a commitment to inclusivity that is manifest by representatives of the women of Egypt, of the Coptic Christian community, of the secular non-religious community and, of course, young people. We hope that full democracy is understood to be more than one election. One election does not a democracy make.”
According to Rush Limbaugh, however, Clinton’s statements only disguised her ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist organization to which Morsi ascribes. On his radio show, Limbaugh accused Huma Abedin — former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s wife and a top aide to Hillary Clinton — of having strong familial ties to the Brotherhood. By extension, he says, Clinton must also have personal ties to the group. He described the connection:
LIMBAUGH: Huma Abedin, Mrs. Anthony Weiner, Mrs. Huma Weiner, she is Hillary Clinton’s number one aide. And Huma’s mother is best friends with the new First Lady of Egypt, the wife of the new Muslim Brotherhood guy, Morsi. That’s really all you need to know. But there’s much more to know. That’s why Hillary is out celebrating the brotherhood. That’s why Hillary is joining Obama in telling the military to give it up for the Brotherhood guy. Because Huma’s mom, there’s actually a group, the Muslim Sisterhood, essentially, that is an offshoot of the Brotherhood. And Huma’s mom is best friends with the new so-called First Lady of Egypt, who is also a member of the Sisterhood. Folks, it’s Peyton place. It’s too much to keep up with.
