8. Until now, I was unaware that Rush Limbaugh had advocated killing liberals. Maybe I was too
positive a person to believe that even that low-life motherfucker would not go so far as to advocate KILLING liberals.

Now that I know this, and accept it as fact due to the source of the information, I want to know why this isn't considered a physical threat to American citizens. This is promoting MURDER. Surely there must be some zealous far-left DA who would love to prosecute that fat son of a bitch for communicating threats of murder--or some such violation of American law.

Recommend.
