A right-wing radio host has told his audience of millions that the tragic events in Arizona at the weekend, where six people died and 14 were wounded during a murder attempt on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, has nothing to do with guns and everything to do with metal music.
Texan band Drowning Pool were forced to defend their song Bodies after it was revealed the murder suspect, Jared Loughner, liked the song. They pointed out the track was about the “brotherhood of the mosh pit” and the subject was “respect, not violence.”
But Limbaugh claims the right-wing pro-guns stance had no influence on the attacks, while heavy music did.
He says: “The guy listened to heavy metal, and some of that anarchist stuff. We’re dealing with an insane individual.
“It’s the liberals, not us conservatives, who glorify criminal behaviour and violent imagery. They say it’s art.”
