Rush Limbaugh on Haiti

The titular “head” of the “conservative” (read “authoritarian”) movement in this country, Rush Limbaugh, seems to lack even the most basic sense of decency. This today at ThinkProgress.com:

Yesterday, hate radio host Rush Limbaugh controversially said that President Obama was going to try to use the devastating Haitian earthquake to boost his credibility with the “light-skinned and dark-skinned black community” in the United States. He also argued against government aid for the nation.

Limbaugh seems to be nursing a narcissistic wound so deep in him that absolutely nothing is beyond his resentment and cynicism. It’s scary.

    Rush Limbaugh consistently shows himself to be the kind of man who could watch “It’s a Wonderful Life” and root for Mister Potter. When are all of his listeners going to wake up and turn off this hater?

    I thought Limbaugh was Potter in that movie? That wasn’t Limbaugh?

    Pat Robertson is very familiar with pacts with the devil, because he is, of course, in constant contact with Satan. If he isnt actually Satan himself. And for Rush, he should be happy that aid went to Haiti, Rush routinely goes to Haiti’s neighbor, the Dominican Republic, to date young boys. They must be digging a sub basement in hell for those two to share.

    William:

    Your outrage at Robertson and Limbaugh are shared by me, but you needn’t stoop to their level of indecency to respond to them. I think it is sufficient to appeal to reasonable people in a reasonable way, countering the logic and evidence (or lack thereof) that they present for their views, and deconstructing their rhetoric.

    If people cannot be persuaded by reason, but only by invective and propagandistic “like for like”, then the game is already over, and they’ve won.
