I know Rush says a lot of stupid things, and maybe if I listened to his show I’d find out that the only things he says are stupid, but this seems way over the line.
Some of the choice comments from Thursdays show, on his justification for why the events at that prison were a GOOD thing:
“And we hear that the most humiliating thing you can do is make one Arab male disrobe in front of another. Sounds to me like it’s pretty thoughtful.”
“Maybe the people who executed this pulled off a brilliant maneuver. ”
“we have these pictures of homoeroticism that look like standard good old American pornography ”
“I think the reaction to the stupid torture is an example of the feminization of this country. ”
I can’t believe people listen to this guy. Are there people out there that actually agree with this crap, or do they listen for the sensationalism? What has happened in his life to make him hate other kinds of people so much and think it’s a good idea to humiliate them? From reading some of his comments, Rush is apparently some form of Christian. How can he possibly think these views are in accordance with any kind of Christian philosophy? Maybe I missed the “Thou shalt torture, humiliate and maim when possible” commandment. And maybe he didn’t notice that evil is what you’re NOT supposed to be. I should write him a letter to let him know that…
Read this article for more of the context of his comments, but believe me, it doesn’t make him look any better.
