Limbaugh is now beyond all redemption in my book. He's called for a memorial for Koresh and he's rationalized, even sympathized with McVeigh. He's now apologizing for psychoaths and terrorists and traitors. These men are not Patriorts and niether is he. If you cannot unequivocably condemn either Koresh or McVeigh, then clearly NOTHING will qualify as "too far" or "too extreme" in your warped view. The man is traitorous, sociopathic scum.
Now, that may sound strange coming on the heals of three posts about censorship, but don't get me wrong. I wouldn't, for a minute, think of having the Government pull him from the air, or punish him in any way that wouldn't pass full Constitutional muster. But I can't for the life of me figure out why people continue to listen to this scumbag. Are there really THAT MANY people who sympathize THAT MUCH with Koresh and McVeigh?
In the words of Gorobei Katayama, "Are you kidding me?"
Now... Aside from Limbaugh it's been just over a year since the Right Wing completely lost their fucking minds. And as much as I'd love to elaborate on that, I just don't think I could come close to doing as good a job as one of my favorite bloggers, philosophers and authors, Professor Bob Carroll.
Please check that out. All I can do for this beautiful piece of work is to pay it the highest compliment I can and say "I wish I'd written it!"
