Erik Rush's Oct. 17 WorldNetDaily column is headlined "Face it: Liberals are nasty." In it, he complains how liberals' "level of nastiness has increased almost exponentially as this election cycle progresses. From politicians to pundits to dedicated liberals online, the rhetoric and campaigns of character assassination aimed at perceived enemies have grown so poisonous, it was inevitable that people who aren’t ideologically-driven – most Americans, as we are led to believe – would catch on."
How nice that a man who:
- has likened President Obama to a cellblock rapist;
- has claimed that "Obama has never considered himself an American";
- has promoted the ludicrous claim that Malcolm X is Obama's father; and
- has maliciously repeated never-proven rumor about Obama's purported sex life
... is so concerned about civility in politics.
If Rush is that worried about political nastiness, he should start with genuinely and sincerely apologizing for his own.
