Rush to Judgement

October 17th, 2009 by Lee Eldridge

Rush LimbaughIt pains me to defend Rush Limbaugh. I’m not a fan. I find his over-bloated ego offensive.

But he doesn’t deserve this.

Members of the media and many talking heads have repeated and perpetuated comments never made by Limbaugh to paint him as a racist. This is pure character assassination. It’s a troubling day when it’s OK for leftwing activist George Soros to be a part of a group attempting to buy an NFL franchise, while rightwing radio personality Rush Limbaugh cannot.

    It seems to me that all the negative vibes this blowhard (Rush Hudson Limbaugh A.KA. Jeff Christie) has been spewing over these many years has come back to blow back on his face (A classic “Blow Back”). He always tries to give off the airs that he can have anything he wants but as we all witness those with more money and more influence tossed him aside like sack of potatoes and the ultimate insult was that it was done in public (money don’t buy you everything butterball).

    Now of course he blames everyone else (Michael J. Fox, Perez Hilton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor, Hillary Clinton, Olympia Snowe, ESPN, NFL, the media, basically people of color, the handicapped, women and gays) when of course all you have to do is listen to his show and plainly hear his daily prejudices filled sermons. So NFL, I salute you decision, job well done. And to the whaling cry baby perched on his self made pedestal, quit your whining it was your own fault. Don’t we all feel better?

    While I’ll agree that Rush is a blowhard, I’ve listened to him enough to know that he’s not a racist. And that’s how he’s been portrayed by the media and his critics. They’ve even made up things that he’s never said.

    I guess Paul thinks this is karma and it’s OK for the media and critics to lie about a public figure who is controversial. At least when that person’s views are on the other side of Pauls.

    “Racist” has become the insult du jour of our society. It’s application is too broad, too frequent and usually unfounded and misdirected. It has become so misused and abused that to hear someone being called a racist is becoming empty and meaningless. It’s too bad, because those people who truly are racists are getting off the hook. The irony is, those people who intend to verbally electrocute their foes by over applying the term to everyone they dislike or disagree with are the same ones who are accountable for diminishing its voltage.

    tell that to sharpton’s ilk. they still think it’s ac/dc

    couple of thoughts -

    i actually heard the interview with the “pulitzer prize winner” (makes me think of how worthy the nobel is) a professor of journalism (ha) at Hudson Colledge. When she said “he wants to give a medal of honor to MLK killer”, I about drove off the road. If, IF, he would have said that – he would not have been on the radio for 25 minutes. (these are the ones that he will sue the hell out of them over – just BS) She read that on the internet – what? journalism off the internet? you didn’t attempt to follow up the source? maybe in an email you received from your wacked out girlfriends at work? GOOD LORD MAN! worse part is, the MNBC (or whomever interviewer) didn’t even question it.

    If racism (or lack there of) plays a part in the owners guide – tell me why Jayzee owns part of the Nets? If he doesn’t promote it, he is not helping in the effort to stop it. Yes, it not the NFL – but still a pro sports business. Sad day in the NFL. And I LOVE my football.

    Just like to add – sorta like Mr. Eldridge – Rush and I may “share” some conservative beliefs, and I am NOT here to defend him, but this is just bad poop…and we have it all over our shoe and have tracked it in the house. Sad part is – the other half can’t even smell it!
