Rush Limbaugh Is an ‘Ignoramus,’ Proclaims Ralph Nader

The wrath of Ralph Nader has struck again.

Only this time, the legendary consumer activist isn’t taking aim at the airline industry.

Nor at the automotive industry. Nor at the pharmaceutical industry. Nor even at nuclear power plants.

“Rush is the king boy of corporatist radio,” says Ralph (above).

“Rush is the king boy of corporatist radio,” Ralph (above) tells us.

This time, Ralph’s gunning for Rush Limbaugh.

Five days ago, the perennial pres- idential candidate fired off a letter to the syndicated talk-radio host – whose weekly audience exceeds 20 million people, tuning in on some 600 stations.

Ralph’s gripe?

That the ultra-conservative Rush, who frequently rails against welfare recipients, is “a huge welfare king himself.”

How so?

By using the public airwaves to earn his $38 million annual salary.

Instead, Ralph wants Rush to fork over a chunk of that not-so-chump change in exchange for use of those airwaves.

Interviewed on World Talk Live!, Ralph tells host Brett Cohen that Rush’s salary is “unbelievable – for being basically a humorous ignoramus.”

Moments after that, Ralph rips further into Rush.

No word yet from the talk titan’s camp on Ralph’s recommendation.

Rush: No word yet from the talk titan’s camp on Ralph’s "recommendation."

“He wants it both ways: to be seen as a political power who can block things and scare the wits out of Congress and other politicians. And when he’s accused of false state- ments or erroneous state- ments about global warm- ing, or about a particular politician, “I’m just an entertainer!” he’d say.

“At the same time, he’s freeloading on the public airwaves. So . . . rather than wait for Congress or the FCC to start charging for the public airwaves and give something back to the people, [I suggest] that he and his company do it voluntarily as an example.

“We’re talking billions of dollars of free public airwaves every year. And it’s about time for the super-rich capitalist Rush Limbaugh from Missouri to get himself off big-time welfare.”

    I myself think that Ralph Nader has been taken over by the green eyed monster and is just plain old jealous of the fame that Rush has gotten by doing what he is doing. Over the years, Nader had done many things to make his money…..maybe he should do the same thing he is advocating for Rush. He is now using Blog Talk Radio for free…….and the internet for free, so talk about welfare……..
