Captain Phillips’ Second-In-Command Upset With Limbaugh
Shane Murphy, who was second-in-command on the ship seized by Somali pirates, says comments made by Rush Limbaugh after the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips constitute hate speech.
“There you have it, three teenagers shot on the high seas at the order of President Obama,” said Limbaugh according to a transcript of an April 14 broadcast on his Web site.
“Just imagine the hue and cry had a Republican president ordered the shooting of black teenagers on the high seas,” Limbaugh said.
Murphy says he and his family are strugging with the adjustment back to everyday life.
“It feels great to be home,” Murphy said. “With the exception of Rush Limbaugh who is trying to make this into a race issue. It’s disgusting.”
“The president did the right thing. It’s a war. It’s about good versus evil. And what you (Limbaugh) said is evil, that is hate speech. I won’t tolerate it,” Murphy said.Click here for reuse options!
