Skip to comments.If Rush Limbaugh is a Racist, Are His 20 Million Listeners Also?
Posted on 10/14/2009 12:33:19 AM PDT by Lloyd Marcus
I have been a faithful Rush Limbaugh radio show listener for almost 20 years. I have never heard Rush make one racist comment. As a matter of fact, I am a black man who has been inspired and encouraged by Rush on numerous occasions. Rush is part of a partnership bidding to purchase an NFL football team. I am highly offended watching the liberal media's all out assault on this great American. In their efforts to block Rush from ownership of a team, the liberal media and the Left are attempting to brand Rush as a racist.
The media's charges of racism against Rush are totally based on supposed "racist quotes" which cannot be documented and comments knowingly taken out of context from his radio show. As a member of Rush's weekly 20 million listening audience, I take the assault on him personally. If Rush is a racist, then isn't it logical to assume that we, his listeners, are equally guilty for tolerating his racism? Obviously, Rush's accusers have never listened to his radio show or else have an agenda. It is truly disheartening and infuriating to witness the media's frenzied character assassination of Rush built on falsehoods and hearsay without one shred of evidence. Knowing the truth about Rush, how can I possibly trust any reporting by the mainstream media?
Adding insult to injury, Rev. Al Sharpton, considered to be a respected spokesperson for the black community by the liberal media has weighed in with his opposition to Rush being allowed to own a team. Given Sharpton's role in the Tawana Brawley scam, it is truly amazing that he is considered a credible representative of the black community... talk about Bizarro World. How dare this characterless con man pass judgment on Rush!
Beyond Rush, the larger issue is the tyrannous yoke political correctness has on our society and the swift punishment delivered with an iron fist by its enforcers, the liberal biased media. Rush's true crime is boldly speaking the truth about several of the liberal media's sacred cows, challenging their premises and opposing their far left agenda.
For example, the NAACP, a sacred cow of the Left, is without question a liberal partisan organization. Rush, a white guy, stated this truth out loud, thus violating rule number one on the media's politically correct list of do's and don'ts. "Whites under no circumstances are permitted to publicly criticize blacks." Offenders are verbally flogged within an inch of their lives and branded with a virtual "R" on their forehead for racist.
The liberal media has no problem with throwing Rush's 20 million listeners along with Rush under their "you're a racist" bus. They are relentless in protecting their sacred cows and are willing to sacrifice and impugn all. Take their sacred cow ObamaCare, outrageously, the liberal media calls the over 50% of Americans who oppose it racists. When their married president Bill Clinton had sex with an intern, the liberal media told us that every man in America, fathers, clergy, coaches and whomever would behave as Clinton did if given the opportunity. To defend Clinton, the liberal media sacrificed the morals and character of all men. In essence proclaiming, "All men are dogs".
Remember what the liberal media did to a young beauty pageant contestant who shyly gave a politically incorrect response when asked about gay marriage, another of their sacred cows? Miss California, Carrie Perjean was vilified.
While I stand beside my hero, Rush Limbaugh, as I stated earlier there is a much larger issue at stake extremely threatening to our freedom, liberty and culture. We cannot trust the mainstream media. We are at war; liberal media's and the Left's Political Correctness versus the Freedom and Free Speech of the America people. Our enemy's mission is to silence all dissent. We serfs must worship their sacred cows or suffer the consequences.
The liberal media and the Left have been attempting to silence Rush and other conservatives for years. Make no mistake about it, their latest bogus "Rush is a racist" campaign is another stealth attack on our freedom of speech. It is extremely important that lovers of freedom rally around Rush Limbaugh. Silencing Rush would be a major victory in their quest to silence and control us all.

Don’t ask stupid questions. Of course, his 20 million listeners are racist. Racist is code word for disagreeing with a Democrat
I believe the NFL is close to telling us they don’t want or need our business. I walked away from being a big major league baseball fan when MLB behaved in a Stalinist manner towards a player for expressing conservative views. I could walk away from the NFL too, if they don’t want my business.
And so, somehow -- though impossible to a rational mind -- are you.
Worth the whole read. Thank you.
Respected!? Al Charlatan is buffoon and a tool. The only thing he respects is the almighty dollar.
MegaDittos! Even if the entire United States population disagreed with the Obama Regime they’d still be ignored and labeled racist. The socialist government train is full steam ahead towards George Soros’ goal and ain’t nothing gonna stop it.
Thanks for the great post Lloyd, you are a great unhyphenated American.
Of course the word “racist” never applied to Dems when they trashed Condoleeza Rice.
Ah, but he hasn’t reckoned on God yet.
As another Black Unhyphenated American, and a Rush Listener I find Al “shakedown” Sharpton to be the money grubbing Buffoon he presents himself to be.
Rush’s problem, from their point of view, is that he speaks his mind and is not a a$$ kisser.
I only pay any attention to the NFL for enjoyment. I do not enjoy being labled a racist because I like Rush. NFL is optional for me. I am opting out.
Lloyd, I despise racism. I’ve listened to Rush for about 15 years, every day that I am anywhere near a radio. I would not stand to listen to him for one hour if he were the crude Klansman these media figures are characterizing him as.
This is the reason I can’t stand to listen to so many on the left, including the President, because they put race above content of character in every speech. It curdles my guts to hear the patronizing of minorities from liberal politicians and talking heads.
I am solidly behind Rush as he pursues full retractions and apologies. I’d be thrilled if these people object, and Rush sues their pants off. I personally want to sock them all in the jaw for repeating such lies about Rush.
Anyone listening to Rush for a good length of time knows he is honest, and faithful to the ideals of America. He’s been a shining light of truth for all the years I’ve been a fan, and he’s been optimistic for every year but this one. He is legitimately a national treasure.
And what do the OBAMA thugs and tools,in the WH and the MSM ,think of all this mess.
I saw a glimmer of bad satisfaction in the eyes of W.BLITZER on CNN when he spoke about that affair with attacks against R.LIMBAUGH
Oh yes, it can be stopped and reversed. It ain’t over ‘til it’s over!
