Very happy to hear you got closer with your dad again before he passed away.

  • DId I miss the part where you talked about having dad problems? If so, post link. If not, tell story.

  • DAE think that having father issues / no father / bad relationship with your father is positively correlated with leftism? OP I had the same thing... I hated Rush and I heated my dad, and really hated AMERICA, as the MSM/DNC had taught me to... Now I love all three.

This is extremely important. I hope so.

I lost my dad several years ago, and I'm glad to say we had a terrific relationship, and talked all the time.

We didn't before. The last few years of his life we became very close.

Find whatever commonalities you have with your elders. They won't be around forever

Thank you for sharing such a nice story on this sad day. I can't ever imagine being a leftist... they are so miserable... so sickly and unwell... so hateful. I know a ton of them; sad existences all around. I just could never live like that. I am glad that you were able to turn your life around.

I noticed that all of my leftist peers are very self loathing. And if they aren’t self loathing, they outwardly hate anyone that isn’t like them. It must be miserable

I’ve heard a lot of Rush red pill stories. I’ve seen him change the minds of liberal friends. He was so special.

This is the kind of extremist content I come here for, to this, the darkest corner of the web.

RIP Rush.

I, too, feel the warm embrace of harsh, bigoted radicalization when I hear such uplifting stories like this one: of turning ones life around, getting off drugs, making a family, and being productive to society.

12
me-no-likely3 12 points ago +13 / -1

It’s so subversive!

35
SlickWillie 35 points ago +35 / -0

That's a wonderful sentiment.

In some of the "Rush's greatest moments" they played today, there was a segment where Rush said something like "Liberalism has no logical basis, and I want everyone to understand that and agree with me. If I could just get everyone to listen to me twice, then I could accomplish this." (apologies - major paraphrasing here).

Most people blow Rush off as just another old white conservative, and some probably go as far as to call him a nazi or racist or misogynist.

But really if they just gave him a shot, like you did, for a couple of hours, they'll find that's not the case at all, and our country would be very different.

Kudos to you for listening! RIP Rush, we love you.

SlickWillie 1 point ago +1 / -0

Haha! I've actually only listened for maybe the past 6-7 years (unless you count listening in my dad's car on the way to elementary school), but I listened every single day and planned my lunch around it.

I wish I had started tuning in before then, but I was in school and too young to appreciate El Rushbo, I guess.

TheGreaseman81 1 point ago +1 / -0

When I was a boy during summer break when school was out I would have to go to work with my dad helping him do interior construction. we would listen to rush in the truck on the way to the job and on the way to lunch everyday. He was the first person I ever remember using the term slick Willy to refer to Bill Clinton. I always thought he coined the phrase.

You know, I feel like if we give ANYONE a few hours and listen to them, then have a conversation instead of blasting insults on twatter, the world would be different. Social media has destroyed our country.

Where can I listen to Rush's old recordings?

1
SlickWillie 1 point ago +1 / -0

I was always a live listener and didn't go looking for older stuff much, but I believe his website has nearly everything he's ever spoken archived.

You might have to get a Rush 24/7 subscription - though I'm not sure how that's going to work now. I guess it'll keep running, and Kathryn, Mr. Snerdley, and Cookie will handle it.

Or you could always check youtube - I'm sure there is ditto cam footage that leaked and got posted there.

The story I have is that my deadbeat stepfather who used to beat my Mom on a regular basis til he nearly killed her and ended up getting arrested and then divorced. He listened to Rush every day and I know specifically I got him a copy of "See I told you so" for Father's day one year. I never heard the show myself but I ended up associating Rush with him being the deadbeat that my stepfather was. Fast forward about 15 years I ended up getting into Talk Radio and heard his show one day and was totally shocked it was the same guy my dumbass stepfather listened to. I called my mother with this revelation and she said she was a Democrat the whole time she was married and my step father listening to Rush gave her the same opinion of him (although she listened to him) but surprisingly she ended up coming around politically about the same time as I did and said listening to Rush was hard but she did it.

Learn grammar. You're cock sucking faggot hypocrite. You know a faggot like you has a dick in his ass when he can take the time to critique someone else's spelling, but he can't even formulate a sentence correctly. Only a Libtard like you on hormone blockers could convince zimself ze doesn't make spelling mistakes through autocorrect or inadvertently. Keep thinking you're smarter than me though you limp wrist soy drinking Commie. Eat shit faggot.

Since Trump became President I had my basic beliefs multiplied. Believing in personal freedom and God gives me such a free and peaceful feeling from all the chaos, that I wouldn't want it any other way! And thats what Im so determined to fight for America's freedom. Godspeed Pede!

For me, it started with Rush, and he was a father figure to me. Levin is more like my mentor. Hannity comes across more like an older brother figure for me.

living a deplorable, drug fueled and hedonistic lifestyle is what the left wants and in such Seattle is the elites social experiment in degeneracy and a lesson on how to deploy it. It's become a soulless place and heaven forbid you plan raising a family in that decrepit and mind cancering place. It has a great way of taking good will and natural inquisitiveness and quickly turns it into resentment, self destruction, hate and degeneracy to levels once unfathomable.

Truly, not only in but truly, in America can someone drag themselves out of the abyss and chaotic environments it encompasses to realize the truth of reality and existence.

This is one of the many reasons why America is Great.

You educate yourself and move forward with your life, the short time we have in this existence is precious for everyone (except fundamental Marxists) and your life should not be wasted for personal self gratification when you can be an example for others.

America, and ultimately you as one of it’s citizens, are/is great.

God Bless you and yours.

Thank you for sharing that. Congratulations on turning your life around. There are thousands of stories like yours. Like you I didn’t like him because I knew he was a racist, even though I never listened to him to base that opinion. Been listening everyday I can for over twenty years. He seemed like a friend. Your story made me tear up. Thank you
