Rush himself was not the best person in the world, but I would never cheer the death of anyone. I know all politics and politicians have people in a war against each other, but to celebrate ones death should feel wrong. No matter what side of the political spectrum you find yourself on. Get your mind right you fools!!

it seems like you're not familiar with all the death and destruction he wished on his political adversaries.

he spent a career dehumanizing people because it made him rich.

I celebrate there's one less person like that in the world, and mourn for the millions of hate-mongers he spawned.

I'm not at all familiar with his work, because I distance myself from people or media sources that are spewing hate speeches. Are you not dehumanizing him as well? Along with becoming one of the hate mongers that you mourn for. I mean no disrespect by these comments.

none taken. I don't think it's possible to 'dehumanize' someone who made their fortune on sub-human behavior.

If it is, then I am absolutely dehumanizing Rush Limbaugh.
But the scope of my dehumanization is One, his is measured in the Billions.
so I'll own it.

I'm sure in some cases its political, which I agree is a shame. However, I'll celebrate the death of any cunt, regardless of their political affiliation. For example, Tony Blair was our Prime Minister and leader of the Labour Party. He's a war monger and utter cretin and I'll enjoy the day he dies.

Similarly, there are plenty of conservative politicians who I won't be happy to see pass.

For me, at least, it's based on their actions, not political affiliation.

What about when drunk Brexit voters die? Will you be having parties?

Dollermore is pretty progressive but here's a
clip of some of the things Rush made his living
saying.

I definitely have a problem with a lot of this but to each his own
