Over at Crooks And Liars, there’s a piece that really can’t go without some comment. According to their transcript, Rush, apparently in some kind of drug-induced tirade, spouted the following:
Rush: “I got an email here. “(Uh) Rush, (uh) now that two of our own have been tortured and murdered by the terrorists in Iraq, will the Left say that they deserved it? I’m so sick of our cut-and-run liberals. Keep up your great work.” Bob C. from Roanoke, Virginia. “PS, I love the way you do the program on the Little Kim (?)” (laughs) I read…no I added that! He didn’t, he didn’t put that in there. (laughs) You know, it-it’s-I-uh…I gotta tell ya, I-I-I perused the liberal, kook blogs today, and they are happy that these two soldiers got tortured. They’re saying, “Good riddance. Hope Rumsfeld and whoever sleep well tonight.”
I’ve taken some time to go searching through a lot of liberal blogs, did some searching on Google, etc. and damned if I can’t find one site that says anything like this. I’m thinking if Rush is “funny” enough to make up the last part of that letter, what’s to stop him from making up the whole letter entirely? In fact, I think it won’t be long before we start seeing letters and phone calls from so-called “liberals” on FOX News shows and right-wing radio that say any manner of bad things just to give us all a bad name.
At the end of the day, I can’t believe that any liberal would say anything even remotely similar to “good riddance” when it comes to our troops in Iraq. Yeah, we all hate our troops so much that we want them to come home immediately. Terrible, right? How dare we have that much disdain for our troops!
What makes this all the more appalling is the fact that there is no outrage on the part of Rush over the fact that these two poor men — Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston and Thomas L. Tucker, 25, of Madras, Ore. — were, according to this story in the Washinton Post, left alone in an “insurgent hotbed” that was known as one of the most dangerous areas of Iraq with only one armored Humvee to guard them.
Where is the outrage over this? These men were brutally tortured and beheaded, and Rush is claiming that us liberals are saying, “good riddance?” Lies. Just pure lies. Lies and hatred. Sort of also refutes Ann Coulter’s claim that you never see conservatives using someone’s tragedy to further an agenda. So much seething hatred for liberals. It’s a wonder these people can sleep at night… Oh, I forgot… Some of them need lots and lots of drugs to sleep.
Even Bill Kristol, he of the extreme neo-con persuasion, recently noted that liberals are “less mean” than conservatives. Imagine that! A neo-con finally realizing what we liberals have known all along!
