I'll never forget Larry offering 1M to anybody with evidence that Congress members lied after they impeached Clinton for lying about getting a blowjob. 

You may disapprove of, or like porn, or not care about it. But Larry Flynt was a principled man in his own porn oriented way.

Jerry Falwell's case against Larry Flynt went to the Supreme Court in 1988 because of this Campari ad parody.

The Supreme Court took the First Amendment seriously, and found for Flynt, 9-0.

Ya gotta love Larry... his magazine not so much.  Compared to the two other most popular uh, men's entertainment mags of the era, it was definitely barnyard material.

I was surprised to see that he was still so young.  When The People vs Larry Flynt came out I was an adolescent, which meant that everyone over 40 was basically ancient and also I expected him to be Hefner-aged by this time.  78 is too young for anybody to go, seems weird nowadays, anyway.

Everything is weird nowadays!
I think being in a wheelchair for decades has a debilitating effect on the body, which is constructed for movement.

Horrible, disgusting man.

 

Some of more his egregious views:


 

Quote

 

Limbaugh is known for making controversial race-related statements with regard to African-Americans.

 

Limbaugh dismisses the concept of consent in sexual relations.[81][82] He views consent as "the magic key to the left".[83] In 2014, Limbaugh criticized a policy at Ohio State University encouraging students to obtain verbal consent

 

Limbaugh has been an outspoken critic of what he sees as leniency towards criminal drug use in the United States.

 

Limbaugh is critical of environmentalism and climate science.[93] He rejects the scientific consensus on climate change

 

Limbaugh was supportive of the Iraq War, and first suggested bombing Ba'athist Iraq in 2002 in revenge for the September 11 attacks

 

Rush Limbaugh strongly opposed Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential election, and spread false claims that Obama was a non-citizen not born in the United States

 

Limbaugh has been consistently supportive of the candidacy and presidency of Donald Trump

 

In 2010, after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Limbaugh speculated on his show that eco-terrorists deliberately destroyed the oil well to justify President Obama's deepwater drilling moratorium

 

In October 2006, Limbaugh said Michael J. Fox, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, had exaggerated the effects of his affliction

 

 

...Jesus, it just goes on and on and on and...

Well, I am glad I live in my own bubble and have never heard of that man. 👍 He sounds like a nasty piece of work.

good riddance to bad rubbish

 

I know you cannot slander the dead, but  I spent some time (covid bored) trying to figure out why Larry Flynt caused Tor so much hate.  I thought as a musician, he hates hillybilly stuff. But maybe Tor is drunk?  Ha.

Maybe this helps ;) 

 

" Larry Flynt...mainly produces pornographic magazines, such as Hustler, pornographic videos, and three pornographic television channels named Hustler TV. Flynt fought several high-profile legal battles involving the First Amendment, and unsuccessfully ran for public office"

https://www.boxinghistory.org.uk/Boxer_Ken_Crawley_Portsmouth.htm

 

Funny old world... was chatting to my partner Nicole today and told her the story of an old friend from my youth. Ken had been a boxer but was living in Bonn with his two teenage daughters, Sue and Linda and we were all friends.

He was a true gent. One evening, he took us all to a disco in, I think , Cologne. He wanted to look after his daughters.

He went to the toilet at the same time as I shyly asked a girl for a dance. Suddenly, her boyfriend ( I presume ) grabbed me from behind and started throttling me. 
Ken , back from the toilet , punched him flat as well as the three guys who tried to get involved to help their mate.

 

I googled him this morning. Shame we lost contact, Ken.

Thanks for saving me and for cooking for me, Mike and other young, poor friends at the time Sunday roast every couple of weeks!

You were a gent!

 

RIP, mate.❤️

We watched the Street religiously every Monday and Wednesday. There's the (true) story of when Deirdre was having her affair with Mike in the late 70s. The night she went back to Ken coincided with a midweek match at Old Trafford - the tannoy announced the news at halftime and a big cheer went up lol
