Rush Limbaugh : Vietnam War Draft Dodger

I often refer to Rush Limbaugh as a 3 times divorced, draft dodger, drug addict and conservative leader. I thought would give an explanation on why I beleive Rush Limbaugh is a draft  Dodger. Draft  dodging is avoiding military service during time of war, or as I see it, not doing your duty when you’re country calls. This subject is near and dear to me because my grandfather served in WWII in the US  Army and was  wounded fighting the Japanese. My father also did 4 combat tours in Vietnam in the Marines and barely left with his life at a place called Khe Sahn. I am also a vet and did my time in the  US Army during the first Gulf War.

What was the All-American Patriot Rush Limbaugh doing during the Vietnam War ? From the evidence, it seems as if  he was trying to find a way to get out of duty in Vietnam. Rush sought and  received a  college deferment and when he lost that he got a medical deferment for service from a private doctor. I guess it didn’t hurt either that Rush Limbaugh came from a rich prominent family of  lawyers and  politicians.

58,148 service members died in Vietnam. 17,725 were draftees. I’m sure there were many of these service members that didn’t want to be there. I don’t think they planned on dying either. I hope Rush  Limbaugh and the people that consider him some kind of  Patriot realize what he truly is. Freedom isn’t free and when Rush avoided being drafted, he may have allowed another man to go and make the  sacrifice for freedom in his place. I would consider that cowardly in the least.

Tara Servatius : Hating gay people for kicks and ratings on WBT-1110 radio ?

From Webster’s dictionary:

Bigot : a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred      and   intolerance

Hate : intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury  : extreme dislike or antipathy

It’s hard to believe that in the year 2010 there are still people and business’s that still make their money spreading hate and fear. I guess my mistake is that I live in Charlotte, NC and some people still  think it is the 1950’s and 1960’s. Tara Servatius is an afternoon talk show host on WBT-1110 AM. It seems that almost every day she goes out of her way to spread hate, fear of lies about one group or  another.

The reason I am writing today is how alarming I find that people like Tara Servatius are actually hired. Tara’s latest bad habit is the disparaging remarks she has been making about gay  people,  namely gay men. The other day she equated that gay men are not  “real” men and ride around on bicycles in tight shorts and that bicycling in general is a gay sport. Remarks like these are purely  stereotypes. Stereotypes have been used to degrade  and separate all types of minority groups throughout history.

I tried to contact Tara Servatius on the air and asked her why she thought it was  appropriate to discriminate against gay people on several occasions. I was also told by a producer that I could e-mail  her and ask her. I sent her several e-mails, very short and too the point. They said ” Tara, why does it matter to you if someone is gay or not ? ” I sent this e-mail sevaral times and have yet to receive a  response. This is coming from a person that has demanded that the governor come on her show and answer questions.

Spreading hate and perpetuating negativity about your fellow human beings is no way to make a living and its now way to make money. I hope in the future WBT-1110 either wises up or is demolished by a competitor with a more ethical plan to bring news to Charlotte. And as far a Tara Servatius goes, all we can do is hope she will change or find a new profession.
