Isn't the word "despicable human being" just a tiny bit hyperbole and untrue?

Has he hurt anyone? killed? imprisoned? injured? threatened? Stalked? preyed upon? or been in general mean to someone?

If being of a different opinion and expressing it is enough to be labeled despicable human being, I don't know if I would call that fair.

For me, that's like calling Linus an despicable human being for criticizing Gnome 3. It's a really strange use of the word despicable.
