Rush Limbaugh Says The Devil (Environmentalists) Made BP Do It

Posted by politicalpartypooper on June 11, 2010

Several weeks ago, Rush Limbaugh originated the fiction that the Gulf oil spill was due to environmentalists refusing to cave in and not fight against on-shore drilling.  In other words, Rush was saying that BP isn’t to blame for the oil spill, the devil made them do it.

As usual, Rush Limbaugh is wrong.  If he were to actually do some research for once in his life (try here, Rush), he could easily find that Big Oil has been lobbying the US and other nations for decades, for the rights to drill from deepwater platforms all over the world.  And why would they lobby for this?  Because the devil (environmentalists) made them do it?

No.  They do it because that’s where the most oil is.  And if you don’t believe me, take a look at the map of the Gulf of Mexico above.  Those little yellow dots represent more than 3800 oil platforms.

Still believe Rush?  Still believe BP is there because the devil made them do it?

They are there because they want to be there; that’s where the most oil is.    The idea that an environmentalist would push oil rigs farther out to sea was always ludicrous.  Everyone knows that a real environmentalist doesn’t want oil drilled anywhere, any time.   Ω

    Oh fucking please…you whore….legislations was passed by the Democrat controlled congress in 2008 that restricted offshore drilling to 10 miles off the coast..additionally Obama passed a bill that allowed more exploration and drilling…..

    Grow a pair of balls and quit creating straw men….BP is not the problem…its the demand for oil…you and me…that created this mess.
