Rush Blames Liberal Media For His Racist Views

This is truly classic. Rush Limbaugh, syndicated right wing talk show host and all around asshole, has been dropped from the group of investors bidding for a minority stake in the St. Louis Rams. Doesn't that give you a nice, warm, fuzzy feeling?

Of course, Limbaugh, who has always insisted that liberal and progressive media doesn't have an audience is now blaming liberal and progressive media for his demise. And while yesterday he ranted that he would sue anyone that was maligning him for his past statements he deemed false, he hasn't said a word about it today. I suppose his lawyers made it known you can't deny something you said when there is audio and video evidence.

Imbeciles like Sarah Palin's lap dog, John Ziegler are moaning about Limbaugh's 1st Amendment rights. News flash, Ziegler: Rush can say any damned thing he wants, but that doesn't mean he can't be held accountable for it.

You know, things like,

"I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."
"Look it, let me put it to you this way. The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There I said it."
And who can forget...
"What do you spend the money on to fight gang violence? Afterschool program -- don't we already have afterschool programs? Don't we already have -- what do you call it, extracurricular events? Midnight basketball -- I mean, we've done it all. We've taken the favorite sport of gangs, and we put it at midnight to get them on the basketball court."
And this is just pertaining to sports. This doesn't even begin to mention his screeds on President Obama. Such hits as "Barack, The Magic Negro," or "Halfrican-American," or "[I]n Obama's America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering" or on the Gates controversy: "Here you have a black president trying to destroy a white policeman."

So now the free market capitalists that conservatives love to espouse so much have decided that their business is too important for them to have a scumbag like Limbaugh ruining their image. Suck on it, Rush.

Be still my beating heart!The funny part is he said he was going to sue all those who have lied about his past racist statements yet,he doesn't tell you which ones are lies!He bitterly claimed that the NFL is controlled by liberals!Now,why would he want to join an organization thats controlled by liberals?
Today he also claimed now get this;Dave Checketts who is in charge of the group that wants to buy the Rams has as a partner George Soros a man Limpballs has said,wants to legaliize marijuana!Hows that for pulling shit out of your ample ass?Here's an oxycotin junkie who use to give his housekeeper 10 to 15k a month to score a drug far more dangerous than Checketts imaginary partner is allegedly trying to legalize!If anything he proves that he will make any shit up to convince his audience hes a victim in this whole episode.
If anything,Dave Checketts is the one who should be suing Limpballs for defamation of caracter

I find this whole thing fascinating -- he's trying to give them some of his money, and they don't even want it -- that REALLY tells you something about how toxic he is viewed as being. If the perception on the part of the St. Louis Rams is, they'd lose more money than they would gain, ultimately, through having Limbaugh be involved with their team, that really tells you something.
