Rush Limbaugh Acuses Michael J. Fox of FAKING/Exagerating his Parkensens Symptoms!?!?!? (Audio Download + Video)

23 10 2006

Crooks and Liars » Rush Limbaugh attacks Michael J. Fox: ” …he was either off the medication or he was acting. He is an actor, after all.”

Rush Limbaugh has hit a new low, which is pretty hard for that piece of shit.

This is simply a repost, Nice catch crooksandliars.com:

Rush Limbaugh will say anything to attack anyone who challenges George Bush and his policies. This time, his target is Michael J. Fox. Meds are something Rush does have a little experience with.

Emailer Doug: Rush Limbaugh today accused Michael J. Fox, actor and Parkinson’s Disease victim, of deliberately going off of his meds to appear on camera with exaggerated symptoms of his disease for dramatic effect. Fox appeared in a recent Clair McHaskill (D-MO) Senate campaign ad, touting the need for stem cell research. Limbaugh even goes so far as to accuse Fox of faking his symptoms all together.

Audio-MP3

“I stated when I saw the ad, I was commenting to you about it, that he was either off the medication or he was acting. He is an actor, after all.”

These emails claim Fox has admitted in interviews that he goes off his medication.” A tireless search of the Internet produces no such record of any interview, or any statement in which Fox has ever admitted or even suggested that he ever goes off his Parkinson’s treatment at all, let alone for the purposes of shaking it up for the television audience.

Despicable, just despicable. Yes Doug, it is despicable.

Here’s the ad Limbaugh was talking about.

Dr. Daniel emails:

the chorea that Michael J Fox has in that ad comes from chronic use of dopamine agonists in the context of Parkinson’s. They’re movements from the medicine, not the disease itself. Although he might have odd movements OFF of his meds, they wouldn’t look like the ones in the ad. They’d look like the Parkinson’s-like presentation of Muhammed Ali’s Dementia Pugilistica.

In addition, those movements are hard to imitate accurately because they stem from circuits between the basal ganglia and cortex that you can’t just turn off or on. Those aren’t volitional circuits. There is little chance he was acting, and if he was, he could only accentuate slightly movementse already had. In other words, this is as tragic as it looks.

How dare ANYONE much less an ex-addict like Limbaugh accuse Michael J. Fox of ANYTHING. I would like to issue a GIANT fuck you to Rush “RX Drug KingPin” Limbaugh.

finger

I truly hope you die a horribly painful death Mr. Limbaugh. You fucking fuck.

And fuck George Bush too!

Pardon my language, Rush pisses me off just a tad.

I am a medical doctor and Fox’s signs as exhibited in his commercial do not match those of Parkinson’s Disease. The writhing, contorted movements are not typical of Parkinson’s which usually manifests with rigidity and tremors. Watching Fox, I had questions. Perhaps he is misdiagnosed or…..is Rush right???

Nuff said? The movements were from the medicine not from the ailment. You’ve never had a relative with Parkinson’s have you?

I hope Rush dies of an OD!!! Or hopefully that fat f**k will choke on his oxy’s and then die! And if someone has a disease, who in their right mind can accuse them of giving false symptoms!!!
