Baltimore Sun ^ | May 10, 2007 | Nicole Fuller

Posted on 05/10/2007 8:20:41 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

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.

Liberals are cute, when in a cage. Otherwise, watch out, they want to control everything.

But don’t worry, Liberals want to protect your library card from that evil Bush.

Liberals lie, you notice that more and more these days.

Robert Murrow, a spokesman for the city's Department of Public Works, saw 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...

"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.

That is an astonishing statement for a spokesman of the city's Department of Public Works to make. I guess he figures vandalism keeps him and his DPW cronies pulling in the overtime.

If I was the mayor, I'd fire his ass ten seconds after reading this.

What's really outrageous, is that a SPOKESMAN for the city's public works department thinks it's just great that vandals have caused damage to private property.

Robert Murrow, a spokesman for the city's Department of Public Works, saw 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. "It looks like they took globs of paint and threw it on his face. It looks great.

The liberals are truly pathetic -

The left is dangerous, they openly condone and foster hatred against conservatives. If the defaced billboard had been an advertisement for CNN's Anderson Cooper, and Rush Limbaugh said what this scumbag said, he'd be excoriated in the liberal media for months, and we'd be told that he committed a 'hate' crime.

Here is a city official condoning a criminal act of vandalism because of his dislike for Limbaugh. Does that make it a hate crime?

People don’t cross the road to kick a dead dog.

If he wasn’t so EFFECTIVE in exposing the Racist Left for who and what they really are, they couldn’t care less about him.

The day they stop attacking him, that’s the day he’ll know he’s slipping. bttt

Seems like Dems take their anger on billboards when they dont have the intelligence to take on Rush on policies.

I absolutely agree. Even if the picture had been of someone I detest, I have no right to deface it.

And they are always willing to use force to achieve what they can't achieve peacefully.

by force, deception, cheating, fraud, extortion, forgery, lies anything.

With the Left, their ends always justify their means. Because, in their minds, their goals are always enlightened and correct.

Why doesn’t Rush sue? He can play the face card.

That's the ticket! Rush exposes them and they respond with vandalism.

Kinda makes the base of the DNC look like they have an average IQ that tapers-off at about 52 ................ FRegards, cutie!

“Endorsing vandlism should cost you your job.

I hope it does as you have proven to not be fit for anything more than flipping burgers, if that.

Your liberalism is a cancer on your own soul and society as well.”

In 1986 I saw a billboard on I-80 in West Sacramento that Said something like “Rush Limbaugh is a wonderful person” which was covered with faux paint and tomato blotches. It was the first I had heard of Rush, before we was on national radio. It was an effective ad.

I wonder how the MSM would have reacted if the same had been done to a billboard showing a gay activist or a black "spokesperson"?

It's different. Trashing a conservative is just fine with these closed minded MSM haters.

I'll wait for the outrage from the New York Times... CBS and CNN. For the calls for a stop to hate crimes... ( Is that crickets I'm hearing? )

The DPW spokesman is applauding the vandalism of billboards?? He seriously needs to be fired and re-assigned to cleaning up grafitti. What a tool.

“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.

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.”

“We don’t endorse vandalism at any time against anyone,” Kocher later added.”

Bet Mr. Murrow doesn’t lose his job, though. Now if it’d been a Barack Hussein Obama billboard, and he’d said much the same thing, then “off with his head!” would’ve been the cry. Two sets of rules in this country, now, have you noticed that?

Like Rush said about the defaced billboard, they should write on top of that billboard, “Listen to what the Left does not want you to know.”

I got a form letter reply to my email from this lib:

“My comments today were not intended as spokesperson for the Department of Public Works.
I should always be aware that whenever I speak to
the media my statements will be considered official statements.
Today, I made a mistake and take full reponsibility for it. I apologize to the Department of Public Works and the City of Baltimore. Our employees work hard to eradicate grafetti and keep Baltimore clean. My comments were opposite the mission of the Department and a disservice
to my co-workers.”

(Translation: Please dont fire me)
