Here’s the anatomy of a media lynch mob. For those of us dedicated to individual rights and ordered liberty, these are harrowing times. The philosophy of Statism reigns supreme and all who dare question it are silenced with smears, lies, slander and libel.
The most recent victim is Rush Limbaugh whose bid to be a ‘minority’ owner in the NFL franchise St. Louis Rams could not be stomached by the media or the Obama apparatchik who runs the NFL players’ union.
First, the media. Toby Harden at the Daily Telegraph has a great rundown of the outright lies and smears used to shut out Limbaugh:
I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.
It’s also been spread around that he said this, about the death of the man who assassinated Martin Luther King:
You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honour? James Earl Ray. We miss you, James. Godspeed.
Trouble is, he didn’t say either of these outrageous things. And it wasn’t difficult to check, as protein wisdom shows here. They originated from, er, Wikipedia and Wikiquotes. Both quotes ended up in this book – a hit job that doesn’t cite any sources. They’re also included in this internet list posted a year ago and endlessly ripped off ever since.
DeMaurice Smith, head of the NFL player’s union, is a devout left-wing Democrat of the racialist variety who is more than willing to serve His Highness Lord Barack at every turn. Jeffrey Lord at the American Spectator has this to say:
So what does Mr. Smith do in his real life when he isn’t busy juggling the massive conflict of interest that is using the façade of football to zap one of the leading opponents of Mr. Obama, the man to whom Smith has channeled $3,300? Why…wait for it….Smith is a lobbyist on the payroll of the DC lobbying powerhouse Patton Boggs and Blow.
How do we know this? Because Patton, in the wonderfully condescending way that liberal Democrats have with the blacks on their short-leashed intellectual plantation, let the world know how proud they were not of Mr. Smith’s legal and lobbying skills. No, they let the world know how proud they were that their House Black Lobbyist got an award.
Let us not one day write poems like this:
