Poor Rush Limbaugh

RushLimbaugh has sat back and done nothing as this cancer has spreadvirulently over the past few years.

I just feel so sorry for the guy! How about you? I’m only kidding. I have no sympathy for the man at all. Limbaugh isa con artist, who pretends to be on your side but in reality only caresabout one thing, which is getting even more immensely rich than healready is. He knows there are tens of millions of angry white peopleout there, and his job is to make sure the money continues to roll inby keeping them riled up without ever offering any real solutions, oreven hinting at the root of the real problems facing this country. He’snothing but a cheerleader for the GOP.

But now he’s claiming thathis getting dropped from the investment group trying to buy the St.Louis Rams isn’t an attack on him, but an attack on all of us:

“As I explained on my radio show, this spectacle is bigger than I am onseveral levels. There is a contempt in the news business, including thesportswriter community, for conservatives that reflects the blindhatred espoused by Messrs. Sharpton and Jackson. “Racism” is too oftentheir sledgehammer.And it is being used to try to keep citizens who don’tshare the left’s agenda from participating in the full array ofopportunities this nation otherwise affords each of us. It was ondisplay many years ago in an effort to smear Clarence Thomas withracist stereotypes and keep him off the Supreme Court. More recently,it was employed against patriotic citizens who attended town-hallmeetings and tea-party protests.

These intimidation tactics are working and spreading, and they are a cancer on our society.”

Well, yes, they certainly are a cancer on our society. And RushLimbaugh has sat back and done nothing as this cancer has spreadvirulently over the past few years. Look at what they’re doing rightnow to Robert Stacy McCain. They’re attacking him because he saidit’s perfectly rational and natural for people to feel a revulsion tointerracial marriage. They’re also going after him because he’s evidently written for American Renaissance,one of the finest publications in America. And what has Rush Limbaughhad to say about all this? Nothing that I’m aware of. And it’s not likehe doesn’t know about it – it’s been the main topic on several popularblogs, McCain himself has a huge readership, and even Rachel Maddow has brought it up on national TV.I guess when liberals attack Robert Stacy McCain and accuse him of“racism”, they’re just attacking Robert Stacy McCain. But when they goafter Rush Limbaugh, they’re attacking all of us.

What about when David Duke came to Memphis last year to hold theEURO conference, and the hotel broke its written contract and bootedhim out because they were afraid of the reaction by local blacks? Thatwas national news, but did Rush Limbaugh have anything to say about it?No, he did not. He was silent on the matter, evidently having noproblem with David Duke’s rights being violated for his views on race,but now insisting that his being dropped from an NFL investment groupis an assault on all conservatives.

Some people will excuse Limbaugh’s silence on these two witch huntsby saying that Robert Stacy McCain is small potatoes, and that DavidDuke is too hot to touch. Well, I guess you could maybe have a casewhen it comes to McCain; theoretically it’s slightly possible thatLimbaugh is not aware of that situation. But not with David Duke.NOBODY should have their rights violated because of their views on anytopic, even race. Besides, it’s not just David Duke. Remember the witchhunt that drove James Watson, one of the greatest minds in the historyof science, out of his field in disgrace becausehe dared utter his belief that there are racial differences inintelligence? Did Rush Limbaugh come to Watson’s defense? No, he didnot. I guess a Nobel laureate in science is “too hot to touch”, too?

So, no, I don’t feel the slightest sympathy for Rush Limbaugh.
