Cowardly Rush Limbaugh Flees Florida Home After Calling Hurricane Irma A ‘Hoax’ (AUDIO)

If Rush Limbaugh really thinks the hurricane is fake, he should stay home and find out how fake it is.

But the category 5 storm is heading right for Florida, and that means Limbaugh’s conspiracy theory that Hurricane Irma is a hoax designed to make people panic is complete bullshit.

“There is a desire to advance this climate change agenda, and hurricanes are one of the fastest and best ways to do it,” Limbaugh said earlier this week. “You can accomplish a lot just by creating fear and panic. You don’t need a hurricane to hit anywhere. All you need is to create the fear and panic accompanied by talk that climate change is causing hurricanes to become more frequent and bigger and more dangerous, and you create the panic, and it’s mission accomplished, agenda advanced.”

He also suggested that the government and media are creating panic to help retailers sell everything in their stores.

Throughout his dangerous monologue, Limbaugh continually noted that he “isn’t a meteorologist. Limbaugh later defended his theory by claiming that “We went 12 years without a single one hitting the United States.”

But the facts are plain. Hurricane Sandy struck the East coast in 2012. Hurricane Arthur struck North Carolina in 2014. And Hurricane Hermine hit Florida in 2016. These are just a few of the storms that have hit the United States in the past 12 years. So Limbuagh is totally wrong.

Limbaugh’s bad advice to his listeners drew a sharp rebuke from the general public and especially from scientists. Meteorologist Al Roker took Limbaugh to the woodshed on Twitter.

Forecasters have been predicting that Florida is going to take a direct hit from Hurricane Irma, and they are right. Limbaugh knows this because even he is to produce his radio show elsewhere.

“I’m not going to get into details because of the security nature of things, but it turns out that we will not be able to do the program here tomorrow,” Limbaugh announced on Thursday. “We’ll be on the air next week, folks, from parts unknown.”

Prior to that announcement, Limbaugh repeated his conspiracy theory and claimed to be right 99.8 percent of the time.

Here’s the audio via ThinkProgress.

Limbaugh produces his show in South Florida, where the hurricane is expected to wreck havoc. He didn’t outright say the hurricane is the reason why he is relocating, but it clearly is.

So while Rush Limbaugh is saving his own ass, many of his listeners in Florida are probably staying put because they foolishly believe him instead of the real news. Lives are going to be lost because of Limbaugh, and he will have blood on his hands. And that alone should get him banned from the airwaves permanently.
