The Young Limbaugh, terrorized by his audience.

Thanks to Canadian Cynic, we link you to this archival recording of Rush Limbaugh from 1990. The misogynist, rightwing religious fundamentalist homophobe was confronted by pro-choice and gay rights activists. His response was to have the audience removed.

As CC notes, this experience likely shaped the once-and-future-reactionary gasbag's decision to forego live audiences and to broadcast from the hermetically-sealed safety of his media bunker.

Whooee! I just left a similar comment with CC. Back in the 50's, the first Mrs. JimBobby grew up in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Rush was one of the neighbourhood kids. He was noted for standing on the piles of earth excavated for new houses and throwing clumps of dirt at the other kids. A mudslinger, even as a ten year old.

I saw Limbaugh's TV show several times in 1989.
It was replayed late at night on the Buffalo CBS station.

All the people in the audience were businessmen in their blue suits and with black brief cases.
It was like they were all clones--each one a "ditto" of the others.

At least we don't have anything as bad as him up here in Canada. Just the likes of Charles Adler and Michael Coren.

For Torontonians, there's also CFRB radio.

Limbaugh's gotta go.
