Anything Limbaugh judges against is condemned, not by scripture, but simply by him being pissed off. Whatever Limbaugh hates -- however petty, personal, and arbitrary his animus -- is ipso facto wrong...To be outraged is to be morally superior.Maybe some of you stopped reading at "Huffington" and already condemned this article or this post as liberally biased. But that's only because people falsely believe Rush to be a symbol of conservatism or the Republican party. These he most certainly is not. The only thing he can honestly claim to be a true representative of is hate.
There is no way to reach a consensus with the Rush Limbaughs of either party - everything is black or white, right and wrong, their way or the highway. There is no middle ground to be reached. It's easy to be an armchair activist (or a radio show revolutionary) because they're not involved in an endgame. Rush can shout and rant all he wants because his purpose in life is to shout and rant, and nothing more. There is no space at his table for anyone except those that agree with him.
But Chopra ain't a hater, and he won't judge:
We secretly love rascals, bank robbers, tricksters, swindlers, hell raisers, and outlaws. And when we feel so inclined, we laugh at them. Rush Limbaugh may represent a toxic form of entertainment -- and the bile he spews bears no resemblance to true morality -- but the fact that America makes room for him is something to be proud of.The problem, in reality, is not that Rush Limbaugh exists, as I use to think. I enjoy listening to Rush on occasion for the same reasons Chopra talks about. He is so intolerant that it's almost - almost - funny sometimes. Rush is an entertainer, and he's good at what he does. The real problem is that he, and many who cower to him, can no longer tell the difference between fiction and reality.
