Liberal intolerance on full display as Rush Limbaugh faces death threats
Here is some of what is being said about Rush Limbaugh:
”Execute Rush, now!” states one; “Don’t just drop sponsorship someone kill this pig now please!!!!,”
I think karma got a death grip on breitbart, I think his passing is inspirational. Hopefully rush will die next,” reads another message directed at Limbaugh. Meanwhile, in comments posted at the L.A. Times Facebook wall, still undeleted as this article is written, readers state that it “would be nice to see that fat douche taken down but I’m not holding my breath”; “crossing fingers for a huge heart attack
Oh yeah, Rush. If I ever see you out somewhere (which I probably won’t since I hang out in places where non-whites are allowed), I’m going to punch you in the throat
“I want you [sic] blood … coming to Florida – gonna pay you a visit my friend you love to pick on people get ready fatso.”
“I hope someone murders rush and I hope it hurts,” wrote another individual.
And there is more, just go to the above linked article to read more of the screenshots taken from Rush Limbaugh’s Facebook page if you haven’t already seen enough.
I am assuming, of course, that these people are legitimately upset at Rush Limbaugh for his degrading comment and are not simply upset with him for partisan reasons. I assume that these same people also called for the death of Bill Maher when he repeatedly called Sarah Palin a ‘twat’ and a ‘cunt.’
To his credit–although he probably did it because he is also belatedly beginning to feel the heat–Bill Maher kinda-sorta came to Rush Limbaugh’s defense:
Hate to defend #RushLimbaugh but he apologized, liberals looking bad not accepting. Also hate intimidation by sponsor pullout
Rush Limbaugh screwed up big time last week and it wasn’t just because of his comment; it was because he laughed and joked about it for two or three days afterward and only became remorseful when sponsors began to pull out of his radio show. He fell for the trap Democrats set before the Republicans; the contraception issue has always been a diversionary tactic designed to take the focus off of Barack Obama’s failed policies and Rush Limbaugh should have been smart enough to see through this. Perhaps it is time for him to untie the half of his brain he keeps tied behind his back, but none of this justifies the threat or the hope of violence or death that Rush Limbaugh has faced since his remarkably stupid comments.
But perhaps the Democrats are beginning to overplay their hand and it could come back to haunt them because people are beginning to see the double standard here: First we had liberal Kirsten Powers call out Bill Maher and liberal hypocrisy in general, and now Bill Maher, of all people, is calling for a dialing down of the rhetoric.
The tide may be turning here and maybe soon we will be able to get back onto the important issues facing the future of this nation, including Barack Obama’s failed policies and his desire to try more of the same in light of his failings.
