On Left Bloggers’ Death-Wish For Limbaugh

Posted on January 1 2010 5:52 am
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

To listen to the left side of the blogosphere, it is exclusively conservatives and Republicans that are the carriers of hatred and intolerance. Any and all dissent from the left-leaning consensus is attributed to racism, hatred, and intolerance.

In recent weeks, the cause for outrage on the left has been the alleged wishing on the part of a few Republican leaders that the elderly Democratic Senator Robert Byrd would be medically unable to vote for cloture on health care reform. This, we were told again and again and again, was proof positive of the irredeemable viciousness and evil of Republicans and conservatives. And those (very few) conservatives who did indulge in such hateful wishing deserved the condemnation they got, even if the generalizations made about it were clearly dishonest.

Completely and willfully blind to the hypocrisy of it, however, some of the oh-so-tolerant and superior avatars of political virtue on the left side of the blogosphere have reacted to Rush Limbaugh’s hospitalization by wishing him dead or, in the alternative, wishing him in permanent pain.
