One of the worst thing that has happened to this country under the name of free speech, was to give a foul-mouthed psychopath named Rush Limbaugh a platform to vent his negative bigoted venom.
Eagerly absorbing the spewing of crap from this drug-addicted, ex-welfare recipient, who has lived the life of his black male stereotypes, is his following;… the lowest IQ’s of the racists among us.
Just when I thought this cretin scraped the bottom of the barrel, last week he called troops that oppose the Iraq war, ‘phony soldiers’….which even raised the eyebrows of some of his ‘dittoheads’.
Partially quoting actor Tim Robbins…..
“A chill wind is blowing in this nation. Every day, the air waves are filled with warnings, veiled and unveiled threats, spewed invective and hatred. And the public, sit in mute opposition and fear.”
Honest dissent is the basis of democracy and should never be stifled, but bigotry, hate, racism, sexism, and the blatant spewing of lies from the likes of Limbaugh, Coulter, O’Reilly, Hannity, Colmes, and others of their ilk is not dissent, it’s hate..
It’s clear that these wingnut cripto-Fascists have their work cut out for them if they’re going to try to convince Americans that soldiers who fought in, and are now against the Iraq war, are ‘phony soldiers.’ Americans are no longer buying this crap. We as a people know that there’s something seriously wrong with our system. And no amount of White House propaganda and Fox News disinformation will change that fact.
