In short: any “conservative” citing a NYT article that blasts a capitalist and in a factually dishonest way sounds more like a liberal (and Rush has the audio of Obama proving the point) can forget my support.
The headline of this blog post comes from El Rushbo, in regards to MSDNC’s Lawrence O’Donnell questioning the “black credentials” of African-American GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain:
Herman Cain Endures Lecture on Blackness from MSNBC White Guy
When they’re not busy fact-checking SNL skits that aren’t fawning enough over B.O., CNN (you know, B.O.’s “legitimate news organization”?) likes to spend its time interviewing “psychiatrists” on why people tune into Limbaugh’s show. I mean, the dude’s only been on the air for two decades, so why not ask now, right?
Obviously, it goes without saying that with CNN picking the shrink, you know the answers you’re going to get. Link with video here. You know you’re in for a treat when the reporter utters the following nonsense:
Randi Rhoads, who many say is a liberal talker…
I mean, Rhoads is a barking moonbat host on Air America, but that doesn’t mean she’s a liberal…only that she might be.
Oh, and as for Dr. Gail Saltz, the shrink who did this “interview” and “analysis”? She donates money to liberal Democrats. I’m sure that’s just a coinkidink that has no bearing on her “analysis” whatsoever.
Nope…no liberal media bias!
I had to check the calendar to make sure today wasn’t April 1.
Seriously? The cretin who engineered the Tawawna Brawley hoax, sparked the 1991 Crown Heights riots, and the 1995 Freddie’s Fashion Mart riot (Google “white interloper”) is suing for supposedly made-up stuff?
Say you’re sorry, Rush – or the the Rev. Al Sharpton is suing.The civil rights activist, angered by a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece written by Rush Limbaugh, threatened a defamation lawsuit Saturday against the conversative [sic] talk radio host.
“Unless Mr. Limbaugh apologizes and clarifies his statements, attorneys for Rev. Sharpton will move forward with a lawsuit,” said a statement from Sharpton. Limbaugh lashed out at Sharpton over his failed attempt to purchase a piece of the St. Louis Rams.
Sharpton “played a leading role in the 1991 Crown Heights riot (he called neighborhood Jews ‘diamond merchants’) and 1995 Freddie’s Fashion Mart riot,” Limbaugh wrote.
The hard-line conservative also mentioned Sharpton’s accusations in the Tawana Brawley case, and the reverend’s “blind hatred” – although Sharpton took no issue with those remarks.
Limbaugh “has the right to criticize Rev. Sharpton, but he does not have the right to accuse him of criminal activity,” the Sharpton statement said.
I guess it’s OK to use made-up quotes to trash Rush, but he’s not supposed to use a man’s history to point out what a lowlife he is?
Man, if that’s not the pot calling the kettle…uh, wait. Is that cliché racist?
The moral of the story? You can make up stuff that results in white people and Jews getting harmed and/or losing their property, but you can’t point out when someone does it.
Memo to Al: God’s penalties against unrepentant corrupt ministers are the harshest of all penalties. Good luck with that.
This is honestly no skin off my back. It’s the Rams, I’m not a Rams fan, etc. If they move out of St. Louis, I’m pretty sure that will rank right there with the gross national product of the Cape Verde Islands on my “Who Gives a Crap?”-meter. I also do not care if Limbaugh does or does not own part of any pro sports franchise.
That said, I think it’s pretty lame when you consider two main things: (1) Limbaugh had quotes used against him that he never friggin’ uttered; and (2) the cretins who are allowed to have a place in the NFL (be it playing, announcing, or owning) have said or done far more vile things than Limbaugh has.
Let’s address the “racist quotes” that Limbaugh has uttered, shall we?
There are way too many things that Rush allegedly said, and the fact is that they are all made up. No one has ever heard him say these things. Many of the comments were supposedly made during the Clinton years, when Bubba all but blamed Rush for McVeigh’s OKC bombing. It defies reasoning to think that Bubba and his minions in the MSM would have never mentioned any of these comments during the 1990′s when Rush was a major thorn in Bubba’s ample backside. Seriously, don’t you think that if Limbaugh would have honestly hailed MLK’s assassin at the time of his death in 1998, around the time of the impending impeachment proceedings, Bubba and Brokaw and the gang would have been on Rush like Barney Frank on a Chippendale’s dancer?
No one has been able to produce any audio or transcripts from Rush’s shows or interviews where he has allegedly said these horrible things. The morons at Media Matters transcribe his show so they can find utterances that they can intentionally take out of context, and even they don’t have any record of these alleged utterances. Not that they’ll volunteer that fact.
I just find it odd and deplorable that for someone who has supposedly said so many awful things over the last two decades, the only quotes that were used in this campaign to keep him out of NFL ownership were made up out of thin air.
As for the second point, let’s take just a cursory glance at who is allowed to have some place in football:
– Michael Vick: felony dogfighting charges
– Leonard Little: vehicular manslaughter/DUI
– Michael Irvin: felony drug possession
– Ray Lewis: obstruction of justice in a murder
– Plaxico Burress: felony weapon possession (in jail but not yet banned for life from the NFL)
– Pacman Jones: technically a felon since he pled guilty to obstruction of an officer case in GA (Not in the NFL any longer, but eligible to be – Ed.)
Let’s not forget Dante Stallworth, who (like CNN’s Rick Sanchez, one of Limbaugh’s MSM assailants with an obvious lack of irony) got drunk and plowed into a hapless victim resulting in tragedy. Stallworth will be eligible to return to the NFL after serving jail time. Stallworth’s victim was unavailable for comment.
Or Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas, whose foul mouth and sexual innunedos keep her peeps hot and bothered, yo. She’s going to own part of the Miami Dolphins.
In other words, you can slaughter people and dogs, be a convicted felon, or sing morally reprehensible rap tunes that make liberal use of the “N” word, and you’re qualified to be a part of the NFL. But if you’re a conservative talk show host who didn’t say the racist things that people accuse you of saying, you’re beyond the pale. Got it?
Morals, decency, and logical consistency: three things (among many) that are sorely missing from liberals.
President Oprompter was schmoozing with his constituents this weekend at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner. How’s about this:
The president acknowledged perceptions that he’s a media darling: “Most of you covered me; all of you voted for me.
A rare nugget of honesty from a demonstrable pathological liar is refreshing to see, no?
Via the Washington comPost, Wanda Sykes indicts the press, albeit unintentionally:
“It’s funny to me that [photographers] have never caught you smoking,” Sykes told the president, “but they always catch you with your shirt off. I know you’re into this transparency thing, but I don’t need to see your nipples.”
Then, via the UK’s Telegraph, she indicts herself as a classless, crass loudmouth:
This is what she said: ”Rush Limbaugh said he hopes this administration fails, so you’re saying, ‘I hope America fails’, you’re, like, ‘I dont care about people losing their homes, their jobs, our soldiers in Iraq’. He just wants the country to fail. To me, that’s treason.
“He’s not saying anything differently than what Osama bin Laden is saying. You know, you might want to look into this, sir, because I think Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker. But he was just so strung out on OxyContin he missed his flight.”
She then concluded: ”Rush Limbaugh, I hope the country fails, I hope his kidneys fail, how about that? He needs a good waterboarding, that’s what he needs.” Obama seemed to think this bit was pretty hilarious, grinning and chuckling and turning to share the “joke” with the person sitting on his right.
There’s not much room for differing interpretations of what Sykes said. She called Limbaugh a terrorist and a traitor, suggested that he be tortured and wished him dead.
What was his crime? Hoping that Obama’s policies – which he views as socialist – will fail.
That’s way, way beyond reasoned debate or comedy and Obama’s reaction to it was astonishing. …
And Obama laughing when someone wishes Limbaugh dead? Hard to take from the man who promised a new era of civility and elevated debate in Washington.
Interesting that Sykes’ shameful comment about Rush wasn’t covered by the Washington comPost in that first link. But no, no liberal media bias!
Compare and contrast, though, jokes about Pelosi dying:
CBS Sports golf analyst David Feherty apologized Sunday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for a morbid joke that went bad in a Dallas magazine.
Feherty, one of the most popular golf analysts for his sharp wit and self-deprecating humor, was among five Dallas residents who wrote for “D Magazine” on former President George W. Bush moving to Dallas.
“From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this though,” Feherty wrote toward the end of his column.
“Despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Osama bin Laden, there’s a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death.”
Feherty, a former Ryder Cup player who grew up in Northern Ireland, has gone to Iraq over Thanksgiving the past two years to visit with U.S. troops, and he created a foundation to help wounded soldiers.
“This passage was a metaphor meant to describe how American troops felt about our 43rd president,” Feherty said in a statement. “In retrospect, it was inappropriate and unacceptable, and has clearly insulted Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid, and for that, I apologize. As for our troops, they know I will continue to do as much as I can for them both at home and abroad.”
For the record, it’s not funny to wish death on anyone. It is sad, though, that the MSM gets its dinosaur boxers in a bunch when someone jokes about Pelosi dying, but hoots it up when someone jokes about Rush dying. But again, nope…no liberal media bias!
This is probably the only time I’m going to bring this up, because the MSM and the left (pardon the redundancy) will be keeping this going for a while. Last week on his show, Rush Limbaugh was talking to a caller, and the following exchange took place (note that this exchange wasn’t Dowdified like the Media Morons and BowelMovement.org have done):
RUSH: It’s not possible intellectually to follow these people.
CALLER: No, it’s not. And what’s really funny is they never talk to real soldiers. They like to pull these soldiers that come up out of the blue and spout to the media.
RUSH: The phony soldiers.
CALLER: The phony soldiers. If you talk to any real soldier and they’re proud to serve, they want to be over in Iraq, they understand their sacrifice and they’re willing to sacrifice for the country.
RUSH: They joined to be in Iraq.
RUSH: It’s frustrating and maddening, and why they must be kept in the minority. I want to thank you, Mike, for calling. I appreciate it very much.
John F’ing Kerry (who is rumored to have served in Vietnam) called Limbaugh’s remarks “disgusting and an embarrassment.” Yeah, the same Kerry who completely made up stories about atrocities he allegedly saw in ‘Nam (and later admitted he never saw it, but just heard about it). The same Kerry whose famous “cut of ears, cut off limbs, fashion reminiscent of Jenjiss Khan, etc.” lies earned him the praise and adoration of the guys he served with to the point that these guys sank his presidential aspirations faster than a Ted Kennedrunk car. Yeah, that guy.
And Tom Harkin says wonders if Rush “was just high on his drugs again.” Tee-hee-hee…funny, considering that Harkin is himself a “phony war hero”, too!
Sen. Harry “Land Shark” Reid wants a Senate resolution of condemnation, and has dared uttered these words:
Reid stated that he is confident that “Republicans join with us in overwhelming numbers,” arguing that “anything less would be a double standard that has no place in the United States Senate.”
“Double standard”, Reid? You mean like showing outrage to someone like Limbaugh but not at ABC News for talking about the very same thing? You mean like being torqued about Limbaugh referencing these DOJ “phony soldier” prosecutions (Operation Stolen Valor)? Is that the kind of double standard to which you refer, you sanctimonious pile of chicken squeeze? No damned wonder your approval ratings are at 19%!
This is simple and requires no further explanation, and to reject this is to reject reality: the “phony soldiers” to which Limbaugh referred are people like Jesse Macbeth, Micah Wright, Scott Beauchamp, the perps in Operation Stolen Valor, and others who are not only against the war (nothing wrong with that), but who are against the war and totally fabricate credentials and events that simply are not true and never happened. Is Reid defending Macbeth and the other shameful liars, or is he just willfully disregarding facts and reality the way that the left always does? You tell me.
Besides, is there anything more disingenuous for a leftist like Reid to pretend to care about the troops? Reid says that they’ve already lost the war, and he defends Abscam Jack Murtha who has slandered our troops and branded them as “cold-blooded killers” (and Abscam Jack is currently being sued for such defamation). Reid has done everything within his power to secure defeat so as to gain political power. And Reid has the temerity to pretend to care about the soldiers? Un-freakin’-believable.
In another shining example of how the left vandalizes when they’re p#ssed, here you have a billboard in Baltimore that was defaced…and a spokesman for the city department responsible for, among other things, a clean infrastructure saluted the vandalism effort. From the Baltimore fishwrap:
Apparently, somebody in Baltimore isn’t a fan of Rush Limbaugh.
A large billboard advertising local air times for the conservative radio talk-show host has been defaced.
Robert Murrow, a spokesman for the city’s Department of Public Works, saw the vandalism as he drove to work this morning on I-83 near the Guilford Avenue exit. He called The Sun, saying that someone had poured paint on the image of Limbaugh’s face.
Limbaugh, who is nationally syndicated, can be heard on WCBM 680 AM from noon to 3 p.m.
“It looks like they took globs of paint and threw it on his face. It looks great. It did my heart good,” said Murrow, who admittedly is not a Limbaugh fan.
Needless to say, Murrow’s not that bright or he would be in a higher position than he is. Murrow’s boss shows the common sense and decency that Murrow lacks:
Kurt L. Kocher, chief spokesman for the city’s Department of Public Works and Murrow’s supervisor, took issue with Murrow’s statement.
“As much as you don’t like Rush Limbaugh, you don’t endorse vandalism, period,” Kocher said. “It’s an outrageous comment, and he shouldn’t have said it. It is not our policy. I think he got overenthusiastic about his feelings for Mr. Limbaugh. I am very upset about that comment, and I’ve let him know I’m very upset about that comment. It’s his personal comment and it’s wrong. It does not belong out there in any kind of official capacity. As far as I’m concerned, he was not speaking for the department.”
Should you wish to give Mr. Murrow some “constructive advice”, feel free to e-mail him here.
