I saw a couple of things trending on Twitter today . . . one was the death of Rush Limbaugh, and the other was “Rest in Piss,” a vulgarism that a lot of people were using to celebrate Limbaugh’s death.
My own political views aren’t based on left or right, Democrat or Republican. They’re based mainly on freedom and self-reliance. If you can mind your own business, keep your hands to yourself and you’re not defrauding anyone, you can do anything you like, I don’t care.
For example, if you want to have an abortion, if you want to marry someone of the same sex, go ahead. These views would align me with people on the left of the political spectrum.
I’m also disgusted by the right-wing penchant to inject religion into politics.
But I would never, never, never identify myself as liberal, as progressive . . . liberals are everything they pretend to hate and they’re too dumb to see it. They proclaim themselves as beacons of tolerance and inclusion but they are always the most hateful, violent bigots I ever meet.
Imagine if Donald Trump died! We’d get the Limbaugh celebration to the nth power. We would drown in the vulgarity of it. I mean Limbaugh was just a guy who did a midday radio show, long past his peak of influence.
Let’s do a thought experiment. Pick some prominent left-wing pundit, like Chris Cuomo or Larry O’Donnell. Or pick your own favorite. If one of them got sick and died, would that trigger a vulgar celebration of their death to trend on Twitter? I don’t think it would.
Celebrating a person’s death, except maybe a mass murderer, is abhorrent. I don’t know what else to say . . .
