Dan Riehl at Breitbart.com hears the warm purr of liberal tolerance rumbling from the Left, which is growing somewhat vexed that radio host Rush Limbaugh hasn’t ceased to exist yet:
The death threats to Rush are captured in several screen grabs of his Facebook page. “Execute Rush, now!” states one; “Don’t just drop sponsorship someone kill this pig now please!!!!,” reads another. These and others are documented below, with images and names obscured, so as to not be guilty of fueling the same targeted hatred the White House and Democrats have now gone to great lengths to stoke.
[…] “I think karma got a death grip on breitbart, I think his passing is inspirational. Hopefully rush will die next,” reads another message directed at Limbaugh. Meanwhile, in comments posted at the L.A. Times Facebook wall, still undeleted as this article is written, readers state that it “would be nice to see that fat douche taken down but I’m not holding my breath”; “crossing fingers for a huge heart attack,” and so on.
Lovely people, aren’t they? Well, at least they never, ever say rude things to women. Just ask Michelle Malkin!
As Riehl notes, we’re watching a pressure cooker of Limbaugh hatred boil over, fueled by a level of political and media synergy conservatives can only marvel at.
In what appears to be overt coordination with the White House, the Democratic Party, and organizations such as Media Matters for America, the left has pressed home what it sees as a sudden political opportunity provided by Rush’s provocative reaction–despite his apology. The goal is not to protect women–who are frequently mocked by liberal talk show hosts without protest–but to force Rush, one of the most effective forces in conservative media, off the airwaves.
