Ex-CNN Host Under Fire for Suggesting World Is Better Without Rush Limbaugh In It

Ex-CNN host Reza Aslan is under fire after he reacted to Rush Limbaugh’s revelation that he has late stage lung cancer by suggesting the world may be a better place with Rush gone.

Per Wikipedia, Aslan was born in Iran into a Shia Muslim family. He converted to evangelical Christianity at the age of 15, and converted back to Islam the summer before attending Harvard. He hosted a CNN series on religion.

Aslan tweeted the same day as Rush’s cancer revelation the following disgraceful rhetorical question.

Ask yourself this simple question: is the world a better place or a worse place with Rush Limbaugh in it?

Dinesh D’Souza fired back and wrote:

The sheer viciousness of this man is on display here. Folks, he was once hired by @CNN to do a show exploring the great religions of the world. Clearly nothing stuck!

Aslan then replied to D’Souza:

What I’ve learned most in studying the religions of the world is how to spot evil which makes me kind of an expert on adulterous felons like yourself who peddle xenophobia for profit.

Aslan’s future tweets showed he’s clearly on the side of believing the world is a better place without Rush in it and his question was merely rhetorical.

Aslan attempted to clarify:

1. I am not “celebrating” anyone’s diagnosis. I’m posing an important philosophical question
2. Rush is not “my adversary” – he is a curse upon this nation, a purveyor of hatred and racism who’s at the very least indirectly responsible for the mass suffering of countless people.

Aslan then claimed a “monkey eating his own s**t” is better than him and called Rush “a despicable racist evil human being.”

Of course, Aslan’s comments invited a flood of responses.

Per FoxNews, CNN parted ways with Aslan back in 2017 after the religious scholar came under fire for a series of heated tweets he made about President Trump as the liberal network was dealing with backlash of Kathy Griffin’s infamous photo shoot with a fake, bloodied severed head of Trump.

CNN ditched Aslan’s show “Believer” shortly after he ate a human brain with a Hindu cannibalistic sect in an episode, which outraged many people who felt he misrepresented Hinduism.
