Defend Rush, Will The President?

Will The President Defend Rush? — President Obama, Wednesday, gave a wonderful speech at a memorial to the victims of the Tucson shooting held at the University of Arizona in the city.

He went off script to add the words “it did not ” for emphasis to a paragraph in which he baldly stated that heated political discourse was not responsible for the actions of the murderer.

His political allies among the dying dinosaurs of the once-dominant media have been attempting to convince Americans that a communist-praising, flag-burning, skull-worshiping, mentally unstable Christian-hater had been somehow inspired by prominent Republicans.

The President’s command for them to chill was, as one counts, his first attempt to impose national unity as our nation’s leader.

So sincere kudos but for him to succeed in his desire for “civil and honest public discourse” he must not stop with that one phrase uttered on one day. He must speak out in defense of all Americans — even his political adversaries — when they are on the receiving end of hate and lies.

When the Tea Party Movement is accused of racism, he must say they are not racists since they are not. When the Pro-Life movement is accused of being misogynist bullies, he must say they are not since they are not.

When a scary effigy of Sarah Palin is hanged high  from a window and then given wide publicity, his voice must be the loudest in saying take it down. When Rush Limbaugh is falsely accused of uttering vile, bigoted words, let the President be the first to come to his defense.

That he disagrees with Sarah and Rush would only make him look bigger and he might start getting the “civil and honest public discourse” that he claims to want.

Will The President Defend Rush?

Wittgenstein, Hitler And Rush

Ludwig Wittgenstein is considered one of history’s great philosophers. He was born in Austria on April 26,1889, six days after another influential Austrian, who is right now ranked third on the list of history’s top murderers behind Mao and Stalin.

Well, Wittgenstein went to school at Realschule in Linz which had a student population of 300 pupils, and one of his classmates was Adolph Hitler.

It has now been reveled that talk-show giant Rush Limbaugh and Pastor Terry Jones of maybe-I-will-maybe-I-won’t burn the Koran fame were classmates at Cape Central High School in Cape Girardeau, Mo.

Some appear to want to make an issue of this. Rush says he barely remembers the guy and wonders why people can’t accept that. He noted these same people easily accepted claims by one prominent person that he  spent 20 years in a church without being able to recall what his own minister had been preaching.

Rev. Al Threatens To Sue Rush

The Rev. Al Sharpton has threaten to sue commentator Rush Limbaugh for this Oct. 16 piece in the Wall Street Journal in which Rush defended himself regarding the false, racially hateful statements attributed to him that received wide dissemination.

Sharpton takes issue with Rush’s statement that he  “played a leading role in the 1991 Crown Heights riot (he called neighborhood Jews “diamond merchants”) and 1995 Freddie’s Fashion Mart riot.”

Good luck with that Al, LOL.

Since you appear to be a fan of the Wikimedia Foundation, which appears to be the source of the false quotes  used to smear Rush, here’s what Wikipedia says about you, Crown Heights and Freddie’s Fashion Mart.

But unlike the Limbaugh quotes, I don’t think it would hard connecting the things attributed to you to the actual events.

Bearing False Witness: Rev. Jackson And Rush Limbaugh

Bearing False Witness: Rev.  Jackson And Rush Limbaugh — Someone who says that the murderer of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. deserves a medal of honor, or that slavery was beneficial because you could walk the streets at night would be a rather despicable person.

One who would be worse though is someone who says someone said those things yet never did.

And so we get to the case of Rush Limbaugh who is seeking to fulfill a life-long dream of owning an NFL team — in this case the St. Louis Rams.

Alleged  journalists Jason Whitlock of the Kansas City Star, David Shuster of MSNBC and Rick Sanchez of CNN and others have attributed on air the quotes to Rush as fact without bothering to cite them — they come from Wikiquote and made up out of thin air by a leftist propagandist — or contact Rush to give him a chance to explain or deny.

Alleged Reverend Jesse Jackson also repeated the slander on air apparently unaware that bearing false witness is one of the 10 big ones.

And, if you should be interested, here’s the scrambling going on a Wikiquote.

And for Rush’s response visit here.

Rush airs on WPHT 1210 AM from noon to 3 p.m., weekdays.
