Disturbing Rush/Rand moment

The smallest minority on Earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. -Ayn Rand

So I was listening to Rush Limbaugh on the way back to work after my Quantum midterm. Honestly he is a much better/entertaining person when he has a Democrat in the White House. Regardless...

What was disturbing, was that Rush was channeling Ayn Rand. Yeah. Rand. Not that I disagree one iota, it's just odd. I don;t expect objectivist philosophy from Limbaugh. To Quote:

The smallest minority on earth is the individual. We are all different. We are all individuals. We are being told to sacrifice our individuality. We're being told we must assemble in other groups of victims. Well, not all of us because some of us are the victimizers. The smallest minority on earth is the individual and thus those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.


This is not the Rush I'm used to.

You must have turned off the radio before he started cackling and yelling "April Fools". (big evil grin)

I'm pretty sure Rush has a Randian background and tempered it for more mainstream audiences. Can't find the references though.
