Rush died
« on: February 17, 2021, 01:06:47 PM »
I liked him but didn't follow him.  I would listen to specific bits and pieces of things he had an opinion on.  He had a tremendous impact and was a useful differentiating voice on politics.

Must be a liberal trait - celebrating the death of a fellow human being.

Must be a conservative trait - stating that something done by an individual liberal must be a liberal trait.

Oops, I just made the same mistake as ctc. I take it back.

Seems how there are lots of liberals celebrating the death of Rush and have celebrated the death oif other conservative voices, I'm wondering is this actually a trait - it sure looks like it.  Let me know if you need examples.

I just don't recall conservatives responding like this when either RBG or Tiller, Tiller the baby killer died.

Always wondered why we feel like we have to say nice things about bad people when they die?

As my mother used to say, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything.".

Mine told me that too. It makes you wonder what Trump's mother told him.

We could add to that list a host of people.  Both parties have their condescending ones.  Trump happens to be more colorful, others are stealthy.  Sad part is that it makes for great rallies.

I wouldnt expect liberals to have much nice to say about Limbaugh, he certainly didnt have much nice to say about them.

I remember not being too broke up about Ted Kennedy dying and I doubt ctc did either, so he shouldnt get too hjgh and mighty about buck.

People die and life goes on.

Like no one else like CNN, MSNBC, WAPO, Biden, Psaki, NYT has.

But that is no excuse for Rush.  Please provide examples.  I can for the others.

Pretty much nonstop disinformation. Literally hundreds of thousands if not millions over the years.
