Comment on Rush Limbaugh: RIP to a Longtime Mac User by John

Everyone is entitled to an opinion. I would never wish death on anyone. In this person’s opinion, every human being deserves to be treated with decency and respect. Sadly, Mr. Limbaugh didn’t share that opinion. He was no Hitler, he simply had the most horrible opinions of any person in public life that I’ve ever known. He was pro torture, pro war crimes, pro racism, pro homophobia, pro transphobia, pro union busting, I could go on and on. In my opinion, he was wrong on everything and we have his radio shows on the record to prove it. He compared hungry children to animals, supported illegal torture of war criminals, and celebrated the deaths of people who died of AIDS, etc.. etc…

Am I sad that he’s dead? I didn’t know him personally. But honestly, I’m really indifferent. If your politics and worldview align with Rush, you’re probably sad. If your politics don’t align with his, then you probably don’t care. I don’t understand how a professional writer can call someone who claims that hurricane warning are a liberal hoax is intelligent and well spoken, but hey, it’s a free country. I’m not celebrating that he’s dead because I don’t do that, but I’m really indifferent, because I listened to one of his shows where went on a rant about how people who died of AIDS deserved it. After that, he became completely irrelevant to me. I chose at that point not to listen to him anymore, and the fact that he’s dead means that personally for me, nothing changes.
