Hateful Man

I don't usually like to repeat such things ... but this is like roadkill you go back to look at ...

Limbaugh on kidnapping of peace activists in Iraq: “I’m telling you, folks, there’s a part of me that likes this”

On November 29, nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh read an Associated Press report about the apparent kidnapping of four Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) activists by an Iraqi insurgent group. Limbaugh announced that “part of me likes this.” He explained: “Well, here’s why I like it. I like any time a bunch of leftist feel-good hand-wringers are shown reality.”

After suggesting that the story “could all be BS … could all be a stunt,” Limbaugh said, “We’ll take it face value at first.” Addressing the kidnapped CPT activists, Limbaugh said, ”[Y]ou’ve met the bad guys, and you tried your technique on them, and now you’re blindfolded in a room with guns pointed at you and knives at your throat. I don’t like that.” He then added, “But any time a bunch of people that walk around with the head in the sand practicing a bunch of irresponsible, idiotic theory confront reality, I’m kind of happy about it, because I’m eager for people to see reality, change their minds, if necessary, and have things sized up.”

I pulled the above off a friend's blog (Brains by the pool)... it was on the comments section of a recent entry along with this one below ...

"I wish Rush Limbaugh would go to Iraq.”

Yes… I’d like to see a video of Rush going through abrupt oral narcotic withdrawal in the hands of Iraqi captors. I’m sure they’d love cleaning up his vomit.

Here! Here!


  • So, Limbaugh is cheering the kidnappers?!?

  • Not so much cheering the kidnappers, a vindictively cheering for the peace community to fail. In his small mind, if the CPTers are killed, this proves that Bush was right. There are evil people in the world who must be punished ruthlessly. But CPT has always known that this could happen and that, if it did, it would be the natural result of Bush's war, occupation and the continued unrest in the country. Limbaugh is completely missing the point.
