Rush Limbaugh: "This Is Just Pure Marxism Coming Out Of The Mouth Of The Pope"

We knew this would happen after Pope Francis called for renewal of the Roman Catholic Church and attacked unfettered capitalism as “a new tyranny”, while writing of income inequality, and urging global leaders to fight poverty. One by one Republican talkers will trickle in, to voice their negative opinions of the Pope.

Infamous bigot, Pamela Geller asked when the Pope became an Imam.

And now here’s Rush Limbaugh declaring,”This is just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the Pope.”

Listen to Rush’s objections as he mentions the Pope’s fight against poverty.

Rush Limbaugh would call Jesus Christ a CINO.

    I am afraid we will be hearing a lot of this kind of stuff in the near future. The top 1% will probably have a hissy fit and pay to have the air waves flooded with negativity about this because that is what they do.

  • tiredoftea

    You know the Pope is right when Rush and Pam are bloviating against him!

    • Robert Spiess

      As an Atheist I don’t normally agree with most statements coming from religious leaders but you have to give the Devil his due, he’s right about the unbridled greed infecting the corporate world these last 3 decades…

      • tiredoftea

        Oh yes! Let’s now see whether he does anything other than wring his papal hands!

        • Brad Fulton

          What do you suggest he do?

  • neworleans878

    Damn that Commie Pope for encouraging people to follow the teachings of Jesus!

    • Skip Patterson

      You got that right. This Pope is trying to say that we shouldn’t be beating other people over the head with his book. We, the real Christians, are being persecuted by the Pope.

        No R.a.E. has the right of it. If they truly venerated and obeyed this Christ they proclaim to serve they would be busting down the gates of Vatican City and other religious meccas to demonstrate their piety and reverence.

      Hey, Rush, if the asshole fits,wear it!

  • infectious_d

    of yeah he’s a real marxist…simply because he’s sayin’ the logical ‘don’t just sit on money you’ll never spend, put it back into the global economy and help the whole world’ idea…honestly it makes me sick to think of all the money many groups an businesses make that those very same people and all their friends and family could never possibly spend in their entire lives, simply just horde n’ horde it, and act like “how dare they ask us to put money into the same system, small businesses and people who were the very providers of our said monies…greedy savages”…to which i’d usually say it’s the ‘sick fu**s syndrome’ the right side tends to have

  • Skip Patterson

    ”This is just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the Pope.”

    Well it sure beats the pure line of shit coming out of your mouth Rush.

  • Skip Patterson

    No Rush, you see it’s like this. What the Pope is talking about is not capitalism per se but this vile predatory capitalism which has no restraints (regulations) and allows a very few to prey on the many. And I might add this is a very few in which psychopathology is rampant among..

    You see the Pope, growing up where he did, got to experience this type of capitalism up close and personal and is aware of the death, disrepair, and destruction it brings where ever and whom ever it is unleashed on. He has become fed up with the cancer of right wing fundamentalism that has infected the Catholic Church as well as most of the Protestant churches and he now finds himself in a position do something about it. He has embarked on an undertaking that exposes this kind of evil which exist in the church today and is trying to return the church to what the Gospel’s actually proclaim.

    So are a lot of fundamentalist going to be upset? Well as one of the right wing intellectual morons would say, “you betcha.” And that is the point of his endeavor, is to piss these people off enough that they and their filth will just leave the church for good because their kind is no longer welcome.

    • Paul Gauthier

      There’s no such thing as “nice” capitalism. The thing you’re calling “vile capitalism” is the true face of capitalism.

      Those other things like regulations and social programs are actually the result of victories by socialist and social democratic movements, usually led by unions. And were vehemently opposed by capitalists.

  • http://myspace.com/spaceoutlaw9 Michael Chevererie Dewey

    Hope someday soon that the Pope talks about the Parish Pries who started the Mondragon Cooperative in the Basque region of Spain back in the 50s. He encouraged his students to start worker owned coops, which is now a $23 billion a year company. Its Ceos earn mainly 5 times what the rank and file earn, who each have a vote in how the business is run. 45% of the profits go back to the workers who cash it in when they retire. It owns its own Bank, which reinvests in the Coop, and it has its own Collage which trains its workers.

  • John_St_John

    Oh Rushie, Rushie, Rushie, did you get all butt hurt because Pope Francis just shot your hyper religious, sycophantic Ayn Randian Kochsucking religion of Supply Side Jesus all to bloody hell. Little man is so terrified of being marginalized and ignored by the unwashed masses in our bloody society it is not funny.

  • heather

    Rush Limbaugh: The psychopathic voice of the Anti-Christians.

  • Barbara McCormack

    He is right though…Money has brought too much evil to our Human Society. If we don’t have it we start panicking. That’s why Jesus said, it would be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God. Jesus knew what he was talking about and, yes people do worship money…..hence idolatry.

  • Sapphire Possible

    The state of religion is making me depressed. No wonder some people turn their backs on it.

  • Barry Roope

    For Rush Limbaugh to even attempt to demean the Pope, when the Pope is speaking the truth, is about as awful as it gets. If Americans can’t see that Rush speaks only for the wealthy and politically affluent, this should open their eyes, Rush is not the role model, Conservatives should ever consider following or believing, As a Christian, I have long since realized Rush is a evil, foul, racist pig, with no morals. I hope the people that worship at the alter of Rush, see what a selfish self-serving pig he really is. Catholics should boycott everything Rush, we all should boycott everything Rush, Capitalism is his God, so let Capitalism be his ruin.

  • langranny

    Isn’t it heresy to contradict the Pope? If so, when are they burning Rush (and his other teabag cronies) at the stake? I want to attend.

  • Paul Gauthier

    You’re assuming that Conservatives live in reality. They don’t. They live in a world of delusional fanatics. I mean take a look at Rob Ford: his support among the loony right hasn’t dropped a bit since all the scandals hit the fan. If anything, they love him all the more.

        The USA is the most charitable society in the history of civilization. Our charity would not have been remotely possible without the prosperity that free market capitalism provided to this special country.

        • http://behance.net/zinkwork Paul Zink

          Yeah, and it’s so nice that the poster company for capitalism, Wal-Mart, is having a food drive for its employees. Of course, the reason is that Wal-Mart pays employees so little that many of them can’t buy a turkey. Special country indeed.

          • Ray Svobodny

            Through the power of Walmart purchasing, the retailer has single handely lifted more people out of poverty by enabling them to buy, computers, big screen TVs & other comforts of life than government welfare.

          • http://soundcloud.com/CrsHdrx C Hendricks

            Walmart can sell on the cheap because they’re subsidized by taxpayers. Some call that “government welfare”. Try again, Ray.

          • Ray Svobodny

            No, I’ll call it competition. The market decides who treats the customer best. The government does not produce, it can only take from the private sector to redistribute; that’s called crony capitalism AKA Solyndria, et al.

          • http://soundcloud.com/CrsHdrx C Hendricks

            “The market decides…” Right. Carry on then with your little cult.

          • Ray Svobodny

            Little cult, C, really; without free market capitalism this special country would not have been able to provide vast amounts of charity to the peoples of the world.

          • http://behance.net/zinkwork Paul Zink

            Charitable giving and government-supplied foreign aid increased postwar under much higher tax rates than existed in the ideal free-market capitalist period of the gilded age at the turn of the 20th century, Ray. Please get your facts straight before troweling on your Ayn Rand wet dream. You’re speaking to educated and well-read people here, not gullible cretins.

          • http://behance.net/zinkwork Paul Zink

            The government produces wealth for the Wal-Marts of the world by allowing them to reduce their labor costs via taxpayer-supported programs for their underpaid employees in the form of Medicaid, S.N.A.P. Benefits, Aid to Dependent Families tax credits. The public at large pays for these benefits which translate to unearned profits for the Waltons and other shareholders. The general public is unaware of how these subsidies operate to increase wealth for corporations via corporate welfare: there is no informed market decision process at work here.

          • Ray Svobodny

            There has been an estimated $15,000,000,000,000 spend on the war on poverty since LBJ began the fight yet the poverty level remains the same. Look at the empirical evidence, the government has failed.

            The Waltons, or any other stockholder, do not take their dividends & put them into a mattress somewhere; those dividends are used to pay for services they purchase from gardeners, builders, etc., in other words they are reinvested in the economy.

            Free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity.

          • http://www.tumblr.com/blog/akinsc Carla Akins

            Unlike the rest of us, the Walton’s pretty much own everything they want and pay little to maintain their lifestyle. By all accounts the Walton’s are notoriously thrifty which by itself would be a good thing but not when applying your theory.

            Theirs is a for profit business – they have a responsibility to those communities that house their stores. When government agencies have to step in to assist in covering (no small amount) food and utility expenses for their employees there is a problem.

            Not mentioned here is the effect is having on the community’s infrastructure. These employees are paying sales tax on necessary items like food and gasoline but due to their level of poverty, they are not paying into the tax base (real state/property tax/etc ) to support police, fire and other community necessities. Which they take advantage of when running events like a “Black Friday” sale. These require support from community services that Walmart is not paying in to.

          • http://behance.net/zinkwork Paul Zink

            The level of poverty may have been less in the 1960s—when marginal tac rates on the rich and corporations were much higher than now— and it would be much worse today (thanks to silly fake economics espoused by Ronald Reagan and his priest of trickle-down bullshit, Alan Greenspan) if not for government programs such as Aid to Dependent Children, Food Stamps, Rent Control, etc. But let’s look at poverty reduction in a state of nearly perfect free-market capitalism (your ideal): America’s “Gilded Age” at the turn of the century.

            Want to show me how capitalism back then reduced poverty, Ray? All those workers for Armour Meat Packing were so well off (when they weren’t being ground up into sausage after falling into a vat)? And the Triangle Shirt Waist Factory Fire— an example of capitalism taking care of workers?

            Go back on your meds, Ray, and leave the grown-ups to talk.

            Ray I am sorry to have to inform you that:

            You don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground.

          • Ray Svobodny

            Skip, why get personal? Tell me where my facts are incorrect?

          • http://behance.net/zinkwork Paul Zink

            “Tell me where my facts are incorrect?” < Where to begin? Your admiring description of the Wal-Mart purchasing and sales cycle makes the phrase “through rose-colored glasses” seem weak and inadequate.

          • Ray Svobodny

            A multitude of suppliers, who compete mightily, are awarded orders from Walmart then deliver to the consumer choices & prices unknown to them prior to Walmart.

          • http://www.tumblr.com/blog/akinsc Carla Akins

            These suppliers are always foreign companies that often use brutal methods to manufacturer these sub-standard offerings. Forgive me if I want to avoid perpetuating a cycle that requires factories to chain 6-year olds to their sewing machines for 12 hours a day. We each need to be responsible for our actions and choices – and know how these decisions affect the community we live in as well as the rest of the world.

            Products produced by virtual slave labor abroad under wretched conditions, sold to wage slaves here, seems to be your idea of an exalted civilization.

          • http://soundcloud.com/CrsHdrx C Hendricks

            I get that it seems like it should work that way to you. But in reality, Walmart pays poverty wages to people who then must rely on help from taxpayers in order to get by. Simple as that.

          • http://behance.net/zinkwork Paul Zink

            How does putting one’s self in debt to buy cheap consumer crap pull one out of poverty? You have a bizarre view of political economics, Ray.

          • Ray Svobodny

            You may want to share your thought with a poverty level family that enjoys a higher life style with products/services they are able to purchase from Walmart.

          • http://behance.net/zinkwork Paul Zink

            It’s a sad commentary on your standards that you believe a “higher lifestyle” is defined by ownership of big-screen TVs and video gaming consoles— and “other comforts of life” as you describe consumer electronics—rather than public parks and art, libraries, decent housing, education and food that doesn’t come out of an agribusiness factory.

            Many Walmart employees are on food stamps and medicaid. So they still get government assistance.

  • Finley Wheatback

    This is actually a good sign. It’s the two opposing views of the hypocritical right wing rounding the corner meeting itself. The party of Jesus has to confront that they are not inline with the principles of Jesus. It’s like the temporal overlap that’s described in “Back to the Future” where you meet your former self and it destroys the space-time continuum.
