The Rush Limbaugh liberal media lynch mob

Interesting article from the London Daily Telegraph about the outright lies told about Rush during his attempt to purchase minority ownership of the St. Louis Rams. Of course, at Nancy’s pathetic liberal shithole, 99% of Nancy’s ass-kissing psycho-phants attacked Rush because Nancy did. A year ago they were all praising Rush, Hannity, and Beck. Now they’re the anti-Christ to those morons. They’re truly like Jim Jones and “Jonestown” in Guyana circa 1978. They all are really pathetic losers and fools over there…Now drink your Chuckles-flavored Kool-Aid, boys and girls, and don’t worry that it tastes funny.

Which public figure can be quoted as having said something bigoted and disgusting and it doesn’t matter whether he did or not because he might have? Who can Big Media brand a racist without checking the facts? Who has to prove he did not say something racist, rather than the accuser proving he did?

A pat on the back for anyone who guessed the answer: Rush Limbaugh (OK, the blog headline was a clue). From CNN to MSNBC to ABC, it’s been put about that Limbaugh said this:

I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.

It’s also been spread around that he said this, about the death of the man who assassinated Martin Luther King:

You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honour? James Earl Ray. We miss you, James. Godspeed.

Here’s CNN’s Rick Sanchez baldly stating at the 1.14 point that Limbaugh made the slavery comment:

(Click on the link below to see Rush being slandered by CNN- Bob)

Trouble is, he didn’t say either of these outrageous things. And it wasn’t difficult to check, as protein wisdom shows here. They originated from, er, Wikipedia and Wikiquotes. Both quotes ended up in this book – a hit job that doesn’t cite any sources. They’re also included in this internet list posted a year ago and endlessly ripped off ever since.

The irony is, of course, that the people reporting this as fact are the same types who are always denouncing bloggers and the internet as forces of evil intent on destroying proper journalism – proper journalism being the kind that involves checking facts. In the case of Rush Limbaugh, however, it seems to be enough that the intention (i.e. to show the talk radio host is a racist) is considered pure.

Even those who have been primary movers in spreading these malicious falsehoods – which would lead to payouts of hundreds of thousands in British libel courts if lawsuits were ever filed there – are brazenly unapologetic.

Thus, St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Bryan Burwell pens this column containing the slavery quote and then follows up with another column with a kind-of-sort-of-well-not-really-at-all mea culpa in which he states that the quote seemed “so in character with the many things that Limbaugh has said before that we didn’t verify it beyond the book”.

OK, so it sounded right and it was on the internet or in a book or something so it was fine to just go ahead and print it as stone-cold fact without any attribution? I wonder which journalism school teaches that?

And Burwell caps it off by implying – nudge, nudge, wink, wink – that Limbaugh’s really lying: “Fine, let’s play along for the time being and take him at his word that he was inaccurately quoted in the Huberman book.” I’m no fan of British libel laws but, again, if that had been printed in the UK it would have led to a hefty payout for aggravated damages.

Limbaugh is, understandably, on the war path because the smear of racism is one is very, very difficult to wipe clean:

When race is brought into it, that you can’t let stand. I mean, if you, if people are trying to destroy your reputation and your credibility, your life, and your career by attacking you as a racist, then you have to stand up and, like that.

Now we are in the process behind the scenes working to get apologies and retractions, with the force of legal action, against every journalist who has published these entirely fabricated quotes about me, slavery, and James Earl Ray.

I never said them. We have tracked them. We know where they came from. We don’t know the identity, but we know where they came from – a single blogger who posted the stuff on my Wikipedia page and Wikiquotes, unsourced.

Wikipedia says, ‘Well, this is in dispute.’ It’s not in dispute. They were never uttered. I never said them. And I’ve even told reporters I never said them.

As Mark Steyn points out, in this instance it’s for Limbaugh to prove the negative – an impossible task. And Dan Calebrese asks why if Limbaugh really is a racist then it takes bogus quotes to “prove” that he is?

What’s the term for those who are setting about “racist” Rush Limbaugh right now? Ironically, it seems to be “lynch mob”. And they’ve succeeded – word is that Limbaugh’s been dropped from the consortium seeking to buy the St Louis Rams.

    Let’s face it, folks -- this is the way the Left thinks. “Evidence,” they say, “we don’t need no stinkin’ evidence!”

    It’s the same way with AGW -- they’re absolutely sure it’s real, despite the mounting evidence that conclusively demonstrates that it is not, and are willing to vilify those who disagree.

    The Left has no intellectual credibility. It can only call names and cast stones. This is why, whenever I hear conservatives talk about copying the Left’s “Alinsky tactics”, it gives me pause -- I don’t like the idea of conservatism abandoning the intellectual and moral high ground. Conservatism can be tough, rough, and ready, without engaging in the same sort of name-calling, charactre assassination, and intellectually-nonexistent discourse that characterises the Left.

    The wife just called to tell me that a client of hers has called to cancel for her firms Steeler tickets this weekend. It looks like I’m going to the game both this week and next.

    My idea was to make a “Free Rush / Chain Vick”
    banner and see what kind of shit storm would result. The only problem is it would call attention to my wife’s firm. So, I guess the next best thing will be to print the message as bumper stickers and slap them on Obama stickered expensive cars in the parking lot.

    24 | October 15, 2009 11:21 am

    It is really very simple (and the reason why I broke with LGF1):

    If Limbaugh had EVER said anything like what has been attributed to him (other than the McNabb remarks) the resulting firestorm which would have engulfed him, would have dwarfed the dust-up over Don Imus’s “nappy-headed” comments about the Rutgers womens’ basketball team. Any statements like these would have been in the news cycles for days--and would have been easily verifiable. The fact that there were no news accounts means there was never any news-- i.e.; it never happened.

    For so many outlets and blogs to pile on (including CJ) with little regard for fact checking is shameful.

    Now--OTOH-- let’s consider the genius of Limbaugh when it comes to manipulating the media. I wonder if he ever was serious about making a bid with Checketts for the Rams--but he wanted to provoke a firestorm just to tweak the media’s nose. Rush--you magnificent bastard.

    I was considering that yesterday. I was thinking he would have had to of known what the eventuall outcome could be.

    He confirmed it partly today on his show when he stated to the man who approached about the offer that “do you really know what your getting into with me and how much resistance there will be”.

    He may have indeed baited them. I don’t think there has been any finacial hurdles in his way for quite some time that would have prevented him from buying in to a team. You’ve got to ask, why now?

    You can call a prog a racist -- because they are. It’s not character assassination -- because they have no character.

    You can destroy their reputations with facts -- and it’s not slander if you tell the truth.

    You just need to attack in a way that you will be heard!

    I do know one thing -- if those crap-heads had done this to Mark Levin, they’d be engaging lawyers to write an answer to the complaint at this moment.

    I think Rush is smart not to sue. He would gain nothing from it and the MSM would rake him over the coals for years over it. As it stands now, Rush has them one down. They have lied and discriminated unfairly. If he sues them, he drags them up to his level and gives them an opening to play around in his private life for years. Pointless. He already has won.

    Viua =Tammy Bruce’s blog via Human events

    For all the fuss over Rush Limbaugh’s attempt to buy the NFL’s St. Louis Rams franchise, you’d think he’d been torturing dogs or accidentally firing pistols in nightclubs.

    Oh, wait: those are the players. All Rush Limbaugh has done is work hard for decades to build his personality and radio empire to dominate conservative talk radio. Yet, less than three months after the NFL conditionally reinstated a convicted felon, some of its associates and fans are complaining because Limbaugh wants to buy the Rams.

    This group of critics includes an assortment of football players, the head of the NFL Players Association (DeMaurice Smith), and, of course, the Rev. Al Sharpton.

    You know, it says something pathetic about the left that Rush Limbaugh has been on the air 3 hours a day, 49 weeks a year, for over 20 years and they have to resort to made up quotes to hurt him and his business endeavors.

    What is even more pathetic is that the NFL has shown greater tolerance for murderers, drug dealers, rapists, and dog killers than a talk show host.

    If I have my timeline correctly, was it Rick Sanchez that started with the untrue smear comments and they were picked up by the other outlets? Sanchez is a piece of shit. Maybe Rush can have the family of the man he paralyzed (the man died in 1995) after he hit him with his car while in a drunken stupor and left him for dead.

    I never said that we shouldn’t fight back. I DID say that we need to fight back smart.

    My question -- and this is the same one I posed on Free Republic, and basically got no substantive answer -- is why do so many of us automatically assume that “intellectual conservatism” = “playing polite”, “taking the high road”, “country-club conservatism”, etc.?

    Why are so many conservatives seemingly willing to yield the claim of intellectualism to the Left, even though WE are the ones to whom it rightly belongs, all for the thrill of pretending like we’re bad boys and girls?

    BTW, I do NOT accept the argument that the Left is winning by using those tactics. Bush won in 2004, in large part, because the Left used those tactics against him, and the people rejected it. Code Pink did more to re-elect Bush than Bush did himself. The reason the Dems are winning at present is because the Republicans are a bunch of spineless cowards who let the Dems get away with lying and lying and lying and lying and more lying. The Republicans (or at least the conservative ones) have the truth -- but they fail to use.

    We need to use the TRUTH, not cheapshot tactics.

    There is fighting and there is fighting smart. Part of wisdom is figuring out what hill you are willing to die on. Rush has the Golden Mic, which he controls utterly and is his best weapon.

    A lawsuit gives the other guy discovery and carte blanche to run around in your private life. The only person I know who ever pulled that off is Carol Burnett--and everybody loved Carol Burnett. Rush, not so much.

    Like I said, when your achievements for conservative come even close to matching his, then you’ll have room to criticise.

    You have some points, but the Left got even nastier after Bush’s re-election. They launched non stop attacks, email smears and rumors. It worked.

    Until the Right learns how to attack and use smears and rumors, we will not win.

    Look at NJ, Corzine has launched ruthless attacks and smears against Christie. Result, that election is a toss up.

    That may be. But in many ways I’m tired of biting my tongue when it comes to that sleaze merchant Sharpton, who has slandered people all over the United States.

    I’m really hoping that somehow, for instance the Duke LaCrosse players can sue this perambulating piece of shit and his Justice Brother Jesse for slander and recoup seven figures -- a sum others won’t be so willing to pay off for them.

    And the LAX boys should add Nancy Grace as a defendant for good measure.

    re: #52 by Rodan

    Don’t hold your breath. Rush is part of the elite and he loves his status. His take the high road approach is what brought us the Progressive Machine in power now.

    What exactly is it -- specifically -- that you think Limbaugh ought to do? I mean, it’s one thing to go on and on about how he needs to “fight back”, but what exactly do you think he should do? And why do you think the way you propose is better than what he perhaps is doing that you don’t know anything about?

    More and more recently, I am reminded of that scene in Braveheart where William Wallace’s uncle, after his family has been killed, adopts young William. He sees William looking purposefully at a sword, and knows the boy wants revenge. The uncle says “Before I teach you to use this [tapping the sword], you must learn to use this [tapping young William's forehead].”

    Conservatism needs to re-learn to use its head before we’ll be anywise at all effective in using its sword.

    Do not deny the “grass roots” highly organized action taken by the Progressives during Bush’s Administration to bring their people together.

    re: #61 by tqcincinnatus

    Look I see your point and it’s not necessarily wrong. The Problem is the Progressives are not ideas driven. They are an attack machine which is ruthless and shows no mercy. They aren’t winning because they have better ideas. They win because they attack and fight to win. They use any means and tactics to achieve victory.

    I just wish my side would do the same. We should launch non stop attacks on Progressives smear them and so whatever it takes to win.

    As for Rush, he should sue those spreading the smears about him and call them out. He should dig up dirt on them and expose them daily and humiliate them.

    That is what Beck is doing to the Progressives.

    I wonder if Obama will call out those in this instance who are “bearing false witness?” No, he is more likely to pile on.

    As Prager says, the rape of a name is a form of rape. Character assassination is evil and robs people of something irreplacable, to so eagerly do so to someone that they don’t know--and likely have never heard--for political reasons is sickening.

    Beck has dome more damage to Progressives than Rush has ever has. He brought down Van Jones, Took apart Acorn and is exposing Obama’s Czars.

    No he hasn’t, don’t be shortsighted. Rush has basically been instrumental in pushing this country in the Right direction. Yes, there are always going to be “bumps in the road,” but millions have been influenced -- and many converted to conservatism -- by Rush Limbaugh.

    Glenn Beck has done his share, I readily agree. But what he has done is short-term. There’s always going to be another radical to take the place of Van Jones. There’s always going to be another front group to take the place of ACORN. Glenn Beck is tactically effective, but it remains to be seen how effective he is in the long run.

    And besides, Glenn Beck isn’t a conservative. He’s close, he’s like a libertarian or something, but he’s an ally of convenience at best.

    That is how you fight the Left, using the tactics of Alinsky.

    Politics is a street fight and only ruthlessness wins.

    Smart people will street fights. Stupid people who think their size is all that matter end up in the hospital. It’s not enough to just blindly launch ourselves at the Left wildly swinging. We have to be smart about what we do, strategise and pick our fights to maximise effectiveness.

    Why do so many conservatives seem pathologically opposed to fighting smarter and using the intellectual firepower that conservatives has in spades over the Left? the answer to this question is not to point to the failings of the GOP. It’s something WE, as conservatives, need to address for ourselves, and decide how we’re going to move forward.

    Are we going to toss aside the intellectual advantages we have that exist because our philosophy and our beliefs are right, or are we going to use these to reach the people and convince them. Trust me, people are more convinced by a good argument than they are by F-bombing a congresscreature.

    I read about this yesterday morning at about 5:00 am. It appeared in an article by Jason Whitlock at fox sports.com. Whitlock took the quotes at face value, actually called Limbaugh, and ran with them anyhow based on Rush not deserving the benefit of doubt. Wow! simply stunning. So as a joke, I got myself a wiki account, and edited Whitlock’s wiki page. I put a piece of false information in. I stated that Jason had been born on the planet of Remulac. I posted the comment on the fox comments section, and e-mailed Mr. Whitlock about the change using foxes contact form. Long story short, Jason was not happy with the shoe being on his foot instead. As it turns out, he has rather thin skin. Jason went to the trouble to block my wiki account for vandalism. O.K. by me, I only had the stupid account to mess with Whitlock’s page anyhow. It just proves the hypocracy of the left to begin with. If any of you have wiki accounts, which are free to set up, the quote went like this. “Whitlock was born on the planet Remulac. Remulac is the homeworld of the Coneheads.” Personally, I believe Jason deserves this tag until he publically apologizes to Rush Limbaugh.

    117 | October 15, 2009 12:26 pm

    I agree that the right needs to fight smart. But the key word is fight. Everytime a liberal outrage goes unremarked and unchallenged it gains strength.
    The greatest damage is done when a liberal makes an outrageous claim and the conservative sitting next to him sits silently. I seem to remember a recent incident where Michael Steele sat silently when some black entertainer compared Republicans to Nazis. The lost opportunity to put the bastard in his place, firmly and with grace, was devastating in my mind.
    One way to start with these bastards is to start hurling the racist epithet back at them, but in a modified form. Just yelling racist back sounds childish and since these bastards are malignant narcissists who specialize in projection, it will never impact.
    However, hurling it in terms of citing the abysmal dropout rate and low test scores of public school students and then tying it to the stranglehold that Liberal Democratic politicians and bureaucrats have on the education establishment may have an impact. Maybe not on the libtard himself -- they are unpersuadable -- but on the large number of half aware people that are out there. These people are the key to tipping the balance.
    The same accusation can be made fiscally. Just cite the fact that every major metropolitan area, again under Democratic stranglehold control, is in fiscal crisis. This will strike a chord with people, especially now when everyone is focused on explding, unsustainable budgets.
    Add a few other simple messages and then most importantly, get conservative leaders to speak with one voice and stay on meesage. The latter is critical because the media is the enemy and will make every attempt to downplay and dilute the message. Repetition and focus can help overcome the media’s distortion.

    we may all laugh and consider al and jesse morons or imbeciles and ESPN commentators even bigger idiots, but guess what? the majority of the public doesnt, and its all apparent considering this latest rush bash episode. he was dropped as fast as a bag of lead, and i do think he has grounds for a lawsuit of some type. to just back away from it causes me to lose respect for the guy.

    as of right now the mainstream culture believes rush limbaugh to be a racist windbag, and without a fight he will continue to be a racist windbag. not fair you say? well i agree that it isnt, but thats reality. this whole “he’ll get em’ just watch” is a bunch of bullshit. he’s worried about losing money over his own personal integrity, and i cant respect that.

    I guess some people missed the deal on Rush’s show several months ago where he had Mr. Snerdly act as the “Official African-American Criticizer of Obama,” or whatever the title was.

    Rush knew way back then that any criticism of Obama would be attributed to racism, so he was dealing with it early on.

    Does even the most rabid leftist think that if Rush had actually uttered any of the slurs being attributed to him, that he would be on the air for even a nanosecond afterward?

    Rush has his every word monitored by enemies on the left. It stretches credulity to think that they would have given him a pass if any of these things had been said.

    Replace “Killian Documents are forgeries” with “the quotes attributed to Rush have been debunked”.

    Rush will not be laid out by this bullshit. Do you really think a man like Rush is going to fold because of this witch hunt based on lies. He will expose these idiots. He has 30 million loyal listeners. They aren’t going anywhere. And let’s not forget about the blowback from decent citizens who will naturally rise up in anger at such gross violations of human conduct that reaches all the way to the Whitehouse and Zero himself.

    Remember when Zero on the 2nd day that he took office, summarily admonished people not to listen to Rush. LOL
    Well, his audience grew by leaps and bounds.
    He has the ability to appeal to people’s common sense and he does it with humor and intelligence. He will rally from this.

    True story, as a kid I was working on a construction site as a gofer, where a high rise
    was going up i Chicago.
    Jessie arrived with a group & threatened to shut us down.
    We stopped work while he & the owner went into the trailer for about twenty minutes.
    They came out, Jessie left & The boss said let’s get to work.
    I asked him what happened , he said Jackson named his price & I gave him an envelope.
    The irony is that there were lots of African Americans working there.

    I saw the anti-Rush pile-on and decided the time had come. Most of the other posters who I liked had all recently been shoved out and those that were left were not my cup of intellectual or philosophical tea.

    Now, I do agree with CJ on many things; anti-militant Islam for instance. On the Creationist issue, I agree to an extent-- it should not be part of a public school curriculum, but only because of the First Amendment/ Establishment clause issue. I am a Creationist in that God made the place and left it to us to figure out how he did it. I do not like the idea of a precedent being set where the Establishment Clause is bent — on day it may be bent in a way we don’t like for a religion we all dislike.

    Even his anti-racism rants were acceptable (though I think he is like may liberals--overly sensitive to any possible racial slight). But, when he could not let go of the bone that is Glenn Beck and the anti-Rush rants based on unsubstantiated (and libelous) remarks that made me feel there was little left to offer there.

    So--I’m here.

    Now I located the quote from the Rodney Dangerfield character from Back to School in response to his professor’s naive instructions on the costs involved to starting a business. Since Jesse Jackson’s shakedown methods were mentioned above I thought it funny to note this comparison.

    Okay, maybe it’s not the same thing but there are some humorous moments in that movie.

    Professor: For the time being, let’s just concentrate on the construction figures, shall we?

    You’ll see the final bottom line requires the factoring in of not just the material and construction costs but also the architects’ fees and the cost of land servicing.

    Dangerfield: Oh, you left out a bunch of stuff.

    Professor: Oh, really? Like what, for instance?

    Dangerfield: First of all, you have to grease the local politicians for the sudden zoning problems that always come up.

    Then there’s the kickbacks to the carpenters. And if you plan on using any cement in this building I’m sure the teamsters would like to have a little chat with you, and that’ll cost you.

    Don’t forget a little something for the building inspectors.

    There’s the long-term costs, such as waste disposal. I don’t know if you’re familiar with who runs that business but I assure you it’s not the boy scouts.

    Maybe I’m naive, but how exactly does Turkey qualify as a “secular” state?

    Turkey, as it stands right now, is a secular democracy, one of the very few in the Muslim world. They keep religion out of government, and have even gone to extremes to do so.

    This has been apparent in the last few years as assaults against veterans and active military members have escalated to the point of murder. I believe this also is a result of the anti military push by some who have stated our military is a bunch of murdering, baby killers, and other types of slander.

    My father’s business was airfrieght, cartage, and exclusive LTL service. There where many teamster controlled docks in the NE and Midwest that would charge our trucks ‘fees’ just to get on the docklog for unloading.

    I learned to hate unions, the mob, and the Dems at twelve when the mob ran my father out of Philly for daring to have a terminal there that hired independents as owner operators and charged less for cartage fees than the organized companies. Dad was about your size and was an SP/CPO among other things in the Navy. He told their visiting ‘business agents’ to FOAD. They then told him it would be not just him but his family if he didn’t bend. He cancelled contracts, paid back investors, and we left left Philly for DC, all in a length of a season. We were doing well and it took a while to recover finacially. This was in the early Seventies

    This one got to me:

    The Muslim population at Temple feels attacked, threatened, and ultimately unsafe that Mr. Wilders has been invited to voice his hate-driven opinions. The fact alone that backpacks are prohibited for entry to this event reinforces our argument that this creates an unsafe atmosphere where prejudiced, racist and vehemently hateful words will be disguised under the veil of academia.

    They feel attacked, threatened, and ultimately unsafe because Geert is going to make them attack, threaten, and make others unsafe, dammit!

    And people are probably bewildered about your contempt of unions. So you have grown men threatening to harm children…nice. I have heard samiliar tales.

    My grandfater was a teamser all his life and when he retired was shocked that his pension was almost nothing. The union took it over in the 60′s and basically stole it.

    But yet I recall a prof in a Business Law class advocating unions as a protector against an exploiting capitalist world while in college. He never worked in the private sector, which explained his position, and he could never understand the scoffing from us older students.

    :lol: I don’t keep up with sports much, but I do know who Favre is, so I appreciated the humor. I think Favre recently turned 40, didn’t he?

    Now that you mention it, yeah, I remember Larry Elder being a guest host once or twice. Thank you for the reminder and the information.

    For those interested in the kid in the balloon story -- just saw a headline stating that he has been found safe and sound:

    Missing Boy Found Alive

    A 6-year-old boy was found hiding in a cardboard box in his family’s garage attic Thursday after being feared aboard a homemade helium balloon that hurtled 50 miles through the sky on live television.

    That selrahC joins in the he’s racist smear against Rush Limbaugh further confirms the correctness of my stand in opposing LGF’s smear attack on Vlaams Belang (sp) and Filip DeWinter.

    Mr. selrahC has no credibility and any doubts I had about my position on the european anti jihadist movement have pretty much been erased by the craven behavior of chuckles on the anti jihadist matter and the smears against Rush and Pamela Geller.

    So the quotes attributed to Rush came from Wikipedia? Wow, I’m convinced!! (sarc).

    That’s funny

    College and sports

    Whitlock was an all-state offensive tackle at Warren Central High School in Warren Township in the eastern part of Indianapolis, and he blocked for quarterback Jeff George, who later became the first overall pick in the 1990 NFL Draft. He earned a scholarship to play football at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, lettering as an offensive tackle in 1987 and 1988. He graduated in 1990 with a degree in journalism. Jason was born on the planet of Remulac, the home world of the Coneheads

    So 1.0 is now taking the side of big media using at best unproven hearsay and at worst outright slander … LGF now derides those who do stand up against this …

    Interesting how far they’ve come since the days of the flashing memo.

    Hello/good night all — just a drive by.

    Beer and punk rock awaits.
