Rush Limbaugh Praises 'United 93' Movie

Friday, 14 April 2006 12:00 AM

America's No. 1 talk radio host, Rush Limbaugh, is giving an enthusiastic thumbs up to the controversial new 9/11 movie, "United 93."

Limbaugh said on Friday's broadcast that critics are wrong when they say it's too soon to revisit the events of Sept. 11, 2001.

Limbaugh noted that he was invited to a private screening of the film near his home in Palm Beach, Fla.

"The whole movie is powerful," Limbaugh said.

"The overwhelming emotion I had was sheer anger at the terrorists, bordering on hatred," Limbaugh said.

"They are not portrayed sympathetically, and that's important."

While some have complained that the scars of 9/11 are still too raw to revisit, the conservative commentator insisted: "It's not too soon. If anything, it's too late. I wish this movie had been out two or three years ago."

"This movie is not that," Limbaugh said. "You will not like these people, and I think that's important. And that's the reaction that the vast majority of the people who watch this movie are going to have."

Limbaugh predicted, however, that some on the "kook-fringe left" will get a different message from "United 93."

"It's tough, today in 2006, not to watch this movie within the prism of your own political opinions and attitudes about life in the country today."

"It is my opinion that the kook-fringe left will come away from this movie blaming Bush," he declared.

"But anybody with half a brain," he added, "cannot help but just be angry with the terrorists. And this movie is going to refocus, for those who see it, the exact reason we are in the war on terror."
