‘Rush Limbaugh laughed about Japanese refugees recycling after the earthquake that struck the country on his Tuesday show.

A caller asked Limbaugh, “If these are the people that invented the Prius, have mastered public transportation, recycling, why did Mother Earth, Gaia if you will, hit them with this disaster?”

Limbaugh called this an “interesting question,” and played a clip of ABC’s Diane Sawyer reporting from a shelter in Japan. In the clip, Sawyer is surprised that the refugees in the shelter have maintained a recycling program. Limbaugh first mocked Sawyer, doing an impression of her and saying that “she sounds like she saw her husband for the first time in six months.” He then turned to his caller’s question.

“He’s right,” Limbaugh said. “They’ve given us the Prius. Even now, refugees are recycling their garbage.” Here, he began to laugh, continuing, “and yet, Gaia levels them! Just wipes them out!” ‘ (via HuffPo).

  1. Limpy seems to think that a refugee camp is the last place where people should be “going to the trouble” of recycling when they should be concerned with “practical” matters. Once again, he is simply wrong.

    Recycling will ensure that resources available within the camp are available when needed, and that the camp does not become dysfunctional and unsanitary due to heaps of garbage lying around.

    I am very glad that nobody is ever going to invite Mr. Limbaugh to organize a refugee camp, nor ask him to do any other job where results actually matter.
