The Hunger Games Films Caused The UCSB Shooting Spree?! Rush Limbaugh Suggests Just That! Ewww!

rush limbaugh blames hunger games for elliot rodger killing spree

Ugh! This is awful, but not entirely unexpected!

It's no surprise that the loudest voice on conservative radio is looking to blame liberal Hollywood movies for the world's problems, but we just don't think it's cool to politicize such a horrific tragedy!

Earlier this week Rush Limbaugh went on yet another rant and this time the subject of his vitriol are those he feels might be responsible for the tragic UCSB killing spree carried out by Elliot Rodger.

Did he blame the gun lobby? Did he blame ineffective mental health service?

Of course not, he pointed the finger as far left as possible — at Hollywood.

The radio host strongly implied that Elliot's violent behavior was inspired, at least in part, by The Hunger Games franchise and his dad's participation in the films.

Rush gushed:

"But the kid's father was an assistant director/secondary unit director of The Hunger Games… Have you seen any of the Hunger Game movies? Do you know what they're about?… This is crucial! This is what this guy's dad did. It's teenagers killing other teenagers."

Ugh. Come on, man.

The nation is still mourning; this hardly seems like a time to advance your reactionary agenda.

Instead of trying to point fingers haphazardly, maybe our efforts are best spent caring for the victims and their affected survivors while investigators work hard to determine what exactly happened and why.

    Thats absolute bull, this guy had mental health problems since he was an early teen, I love it when uninformed people talk out of their ass.

    Perez, the left ALWAYS politicizes tragedies. "Never let a good crisis go to waste" is their motto. I have NEVER seen you criticize them when they do it. No posts on the left jumping on gun control lobbying. No posts on the lies the media has told about the killer. So stop being inconsistent here. P.S. I agree Rush's theory is stupid, but the truth is that many of these tragedies have blame that can be placed on our society as a whole today. Listen to the horrible mainstream music which glamorizes sex with no morals, gangs, violence, drugs. Look at the movies and TV shows. Look at parents who are told to let their kids do whatever they want. No wonder we're so screwed up. Anyway off my soapbox about that, but again the point is don't tsk the right when you don't express the same for the left (unless you're fine with their politicizing tragedy, as they always do.)

    The Jewish control of Hollywood is to blame. All the money that is raised goes to buy weapons to kill Palestinian Women and Children

    God that entire violent video games/movies bullshit is getting really old. I was bullied in high school and played GTA with my friends and I didn't shoot up people in the school nor did I ever want to. I agree with what you said, Perez, about failing mental health services. I've been suffering with suicide/depression issues my entire life.

    Rush said he didn't read the books or see either movies. it was a caller that called in said he believed the hunger games were to blame. never let the truth get in the way of your freaking agenda.

    Did no one notice that in his video AND in his letters he stated that he was going on this spree because he was a 'kissless virgin'. It wasn't fucking mental health, it was his idea that he was entitled to getting laid and conquering every girl on his college campus. He even stated that if 'one pretty girl' had looked his way that massacre would have never happened. So FUCK what people say about his mental health. He knew what the fuck he was doing. FUCK people saying it was violet video games/movies/books. It was his own fucking pride that the stupid male-entitled world created.

    Re: Kerry Louise – you are literally the most uninformed, mush-brained creature that ever lived. Stop spreading your lies and hate

    You do realize it's rush Limbaugh which means it's sarcasm right? That's 75% of his show and he loves it when people who oppose him fall for it because they don't actually listen to his show. Anyway… I thought gays were good at sarcasm!

    Re: Kerry Louise – I agree completely. They need to be stopped.

    Re: Amy – So, you're saying this is okay to say? You're saying because other people do it, it's okay for him to do it, too. Typical Rethuglican thinking. This is why you people keep LOSING. You whine like little girls whenever someone points out the hypocrisy of the far right. Really - get some Pampers and go back to your crib.

    Does this guy truly know what the Hunger Games are about? Should I go to the US to explain it to him?

    Rush Limbaugh is a filthy cancer on society.
