From Rush's own transcript of his show yesterday:
CALLER: I think it does. It's just terrible that 26 people died in Sandy Hook and 20 of them were children. Terrible. Very sad, coming up to Christmas. Hopes and dreams the young children had, their parents and weddings and congratulations that will never occur. However, on any given day in America, more than 3,000 children are killed from abortion, and we have no problems with that. We're okay with that; it's not an issue.
You can't spend 40 years telling people and telling children that if I make a mistake -- if something comes up and this child that I don't want is in the way of my future and the way of me graduating high school, is in the way of me going to college, is the way of me being happy, is in the way of whatever I want out of life -- then it's okay for me to kill the baby. But later on when I become a disgruntled employee, when I become an unhappy student at school because children are bullying me, then I want to eliminate them to get them out of the way? It's the same concept.
RUSH: Well, it's a good point. You know how to stop abortion? Require that each one occur with a gun.
I really don't have much to say. What kind of person makes a statement like this, a hate filled statement that implicitly encourages and incites deranged people to shoot women contemplating an abortion? Certainly not an entertainer. There's nothing entertaining about this rancid remark whatsoever. Frankly, there's really only one word that fits: Evil.
I see ProgLegs had a diary about this yesterday, but I'm going to leave this one up, as it bears repeating. However, please rec that diary, and check out the links to things you can do to help stop Rush's inflammatory hate speech from being broadcast to millions of people everyday.
