Even something as dangerous as a category 5 hurricane is no match for Limbaugh's "truth." On his Tuesday show, Limbaugh declared Hurricane Irma a "hoax" concocted by liberals to advance their global warming agenda.
So there is a desire to advance this climate change agenda, and hurricanes are one of the fastest and best ways to do it. 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.
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." Do not doubt me, with everything being politicized, of course it is an objective of some, not everybody, of course, but some of the people involved here.
He also spun a conspiracy that included "Big Water," who he claimed would profit from people stocking up on bottled water when they have perfectly good water coming out of their taps.
By Thursday, as Irma barreled through the Caribbean on its way toward Florida, Limbaugh changed his tune.
May as well… announce this. 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. We’ll be on the air next week, folks, from parts unknown.
He added that doing the show on Friday from South Florida would be "legally impossible."
