CNN's Bill Carter Criticizes Florida Honoring Limbaugh by Lowering Flags: 'He Wasn't a Heroic Figure


CNN’s Bill Carter Criticizes Florida Honoring Limbaugh by Lowering Flags: ‘He Wasn’t a Heroic Figure’

By Ken Meyer Feb 21st, 2021, 12:46 pm

CNN media analyst Bill Carter took issue with the push from conservatives for American flags to be lowered in recognition for the death of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Carter joined Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources to talk about how Limbaugh is being remembered for his legacy as a “hero” to conservatives and a “hatemonger” to liberals. Stelter asked Carter for his reaction to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ (R) plan to order flags be lowered to half-mast throughout the state in Limbaugh’s honor.

Carter began by dismissing the plan as an attention-grab from DeSantis. He then said the justification of lowering flags for Limbaugh would be “really questionable” because he “had a huge following and was very popular… but he wasn’t a heroic figure.”

“He had a lot of incidents that were extremely questionable, and his views were pretty ugly, and they hurt a lot of people,” Carter continued. He went on noting that conservatives “loved” Limbaugh for establishing the “brand” of a shock-jock firebrand, like with his racially-charged attacks against former President Barack Obama.

1. The point De Satanist is making,

Honor a Fascist,... (Rush Limbaugh)

Using the national symbol of AmeriKKKa,...

This will help normalize the thought of AmeriKKKa being a Fascist State.

Mission accomplished.

(Plus De Satanist has higher political aspirations,.. this move will capture the Limbaugh radio listening audience to vote in the De Satanist column into the future. Especially helpful if De Satanist runs for a national office,... such as U S President.)
