Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has condemned the bestowing of the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Rush Limbaugh on the grounds that he is a “violent racist”.
Limbaugh, even if some of the things he has said over the decades were of questionable taste, has never advocated acts of violence.
That is more than can be said of those that Ocasio-Cortez associates herself with such as Black Lives Matter, Al Sharpton, and Ilhan Omar who dismissed 9/11 as some people just doing something.
If Ocasio-Cortez is so concerned about violence, why is she on the record of not caring whether or not she is categorized as a socialist, a political description often linked with the worst mass murders in modern history?
It is being argued that, since Martin Luther King was granted the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the honor should not be bestowed upon Rush Limbaugh.
But as shocking as the broadcaster's four marriages might be, that still pales in comparison to not only the esteemed civil rights icon's numerous alleged affairs but also claims that he stood nearby laughing as a woman was raped.
Regarding those jacked out of shape over Rush Limbaugh being granted the Presidential Medal of Freedom, do they intend to be as livid over the honor having been bestowed on Ted Kennedy?
For despite his faults, Limbaugh never killed a woman by leaving her to drown in a wrecked automobile.
Will the one granted to Bill Cosby be revoked?
For despite numerous marriages, there seems to be no record of Limbaugh pharmaceutically manipulating the target of his libido in order to take advantage of them carnally.
