RUSH: Let’s see. Here is Spiridon in New York City. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, Rush, NYU Limbaugh representative dittos.
RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much. I appreciate that.
CALLER: Okay. Wednesday night, I was at a symposium here at NYU where they had a bunch of old sixties radicals talking about how terrible it is that they’re teaching anti-radicalism in the universities, and —
RUSH: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Wait a minute. I want to understand this. You went a symposium at NYU with a bunch of sixties radicals complaining about how terrible it is that there’s anti-radicalism in the university?
CALLER: Yes, that’s right, but I want to get on to what happened here. It relates to the Bin Laden thing.
RUSH: All right.
CALLER: So Stockton Lynn (ph) was there, if you know who he is. He is an old sixties radical. He’s a pacifist who supported North Vietnam. Like, he’s the guy who got Tom Hayden into the act —
RUSH: Okay, got you.
CALLER: — and during his speech he talked about the Bin Laden — you know, how terrible it was that we assassinated the unarmed Bin Laden and that it wasn’t a proper form of justice.
RUSH: Really? Were the 3,000 people in the World Trade Center armed?
CALLER: Not that I know of.
RUSH: I never heard about the 3,000 people there were armed, or the Pentagon. Well, some of them might have been armed, but I don’t think the people in the World Trade Center were armed. So it was an improper form of justice to kill an unarmed mass murderer.
CALLER: The video is gonna be coming out soon. I’m a subscriber to your site. I’ll e-mail you when it comes out but, you know, I confronted him afterwards. I asked him about this and stuff and I said, “You know, we’re talking about Osama Bin Laden, not a petty criminal. Killing him is a form of justice especially for this,” and he’s saying, “Well, you don’t know what role he played in the 9/11 attacks and whatever.” He was a pleasant guy, but, you know, he was just so out of his mind. Half of the room was on his side — like a representative of the War Resisters League was on his side — and another half was more on my side.
RUSH: Now, what —
CALLER: Even though they’re all radicals, they were reasonable.
RUSH: In this guy’s half of the room what was their opinion of Bin Laden? Was he even guilty of terrorism in their minds or was he justified?
CALLER: Well, from what I got, they weren’t truthers all the way. You know, they believed that he was, yeah, a bad guy and stuff, but they didn’t like the fact that we went and, quote, unquote, “did a targeted assassination. “That was their problem.
RUSH: I got it. They may have a point in terms of US law. But, Spiridon, what you have to understand is that “we” didn’t kill him. “We” did not kill him. “We” didn’t kill him, and I don’t know if you’re sixties radical is aware of this. “We” did not kill Osama Bin Laden. Obama did! And he’s president. “We” had nothing to do with it. Don’t lump me in!
