Conservative broadcaster Rush Limbaugh seems to have abandoned his plans to ride out Hurricane Irma at his Palm Beach home, where he records his radio show, after originally downplaying the risk of the storm as the product of a giant conspiracy.
"When it comes to a hurricane bearing down on South Florida, I'm the go-to guy", Limbaugh said, and then spent the next 24 minutes dispensing hurricane advice that no meteorologist or federal agency would likely dare utter.
"If it ends up not hitting where you are, hits somewhere else, you might temporarily breathe a sigh of relief, but you're still gonna think, 'Man, there might be something to this climate change", Limbaugh said.
"My point to you is, folks, that even though we are all here, we at the EIB Network are all in the crosshairs, we have that bull's-eye painted, we're going to be devoted the usual 125% of this program to you", he said near the segment's conclusion.
Syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh is evacuating his south Florida residence ahead of Hurricane Irma's landfall. By Thursday Limbaugh had changed his tune, calling Hurricane Irma "dire" and a "mammoth", The Hill reported.
Only 43 percent of Americans now identify as white Christians
More than half (52%) espouse the historically Catholic doctrine that good deeds and faith are required to get into heaven. Over 60 percent of inhabitants are of North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Kentucky and West Virginia are white Christians.
Earlier this week, Mr. Limbaugh was critical of mainstream media hurricane hype, saying agenda-driven liberals in the media glom on to hurricanes to work up a drumbeat about human impact on climate change and big-government efforts to reverse or lessen the impacts thereof.
"The TV stations begin reporting this and the panic begins to increase", Limbaugh said on his nationally-syndicated show. You can accomplish a lot just by creating fear and panic. Oh, my God.' People run to the stores, they stock up everything, and they hoard.
Um, Rush Limbaugh, you need to like, look, at a few headlines (The Miami Herald is full of coverage, by the way).
"There is a desire to advance this climate change agenda, and hurricanes are one of the fastest and best ways to do it".
"Please evacuate as we are now telling you", County Administrator Verdenia Baker said Thursday while urging residents to move to a local shelter or stay with family outside the evacuation zone. But if, if they are going to approach a hit on the US, you will note that early tracks always have them impacting a major population center.
