Rush Limbaugh, in a damned fine effort to get your weird uncle Larry riled up on his way to work, claimed Robin Williams' suicide could be attributed to a "leftist worldview" on his radio show this week.
Limbaugh's monologue, which references a Fox News report, compares survivors' guilt (which Williams allegedly suffered) to the supposed guilt "leftists" feel when surveying America:
He had it all but he had nothing. Made everybody else laugh but was miserable inside. It fits a certain picture, or a certain image that the left has. I mean, talk about low expectations, general unhappiness, and so forth.
And right here, it says that one of the contributing factors to Robin Williams deciding to kill himself was survivors' guilt. And I read—It's in the headline. Survivors' guilt—what survivors' guilt? So I read it, and it turns out that three of his closest friends—the story says—three of his closest friends were Christopher Reeve, John Belushi, and Andy Kaufman.
And the source, unnamed in the story, said that Robin Williams felt guilty that he was still alive while his three friends had died young and much earlier than he had. He could never get over the guilt that they died and he didn't. Well, that is a constant measurement that is made by political leftists in judging the country.
Other problems attributable to leftist worldviews, probably: the violence in Gaza, police militarization, racism, the shitty weather, ISIS, the soggy sandwich Rush ate for lunch today, bedbugs on the subway, that sad gorilla, your love life, bad internet commenters, Shep Smith, depression, suicides (all of them), death (in general), and talk radio.
