Race-Baiter Al Sharpton Threatens To Sue Rush Limbaugh

Filed in PoliticsTags: Media Bias, NFL, Racism

In the wake of his false-quote and slander-induced lynching and subsequent drop from a bid to group bid to purchase the St. Louis Rams, Rush Limbaugh wrote an op-ed piece for the WSJ, in which he called out the hypocritical race-baiting of his attackers - primarily Al Sharpton and Jess Jackson:

It didn't take long before my name was selectively leaked to the media as part of the Checketts investment group. Shortly thereafter, the media elicited comments from the likes of Al Sharpton. In 1998 Mr. Sharpton was found guilty of defamation and ordered to pay $65,000 for falsely accusing a New York prosecutor of rape in the 1987 Tawana Brawley case. He also played a leading role in the 1991 Crown Heights riot (he called neighborhood Jews "diamond merchants") and 1995 Freddie's Fashion Mart riot.

Not to be outdone, Jesse Jackson, whose history includes anti-Semitic speech (in 1984 he referred to Jews as "Hymies" and to New York City as "Hymietown" in a Washington Post interview) chimed in. He found me unfit to be associated with the NFL.

Now, Al Sharpton, race-baiter and hypocrite extraordinaire, is threatening to sue Limbaugh for his comments:

"Unless Mr. Limbaugh apologizes and clarifies his statements, attorneys for Rev. Sharpton will move forward with a lawsuit," said a written statement released Saturday by Sharpton's spokeswoman. "He has the right to criticize Rev. Sharpton, but he does not have the right to accuse him of criminal activity, and riots and murders are criminal."

The fine folks at PowerLine explain both the AP's water-carrying for Sharpton and Sharpton's absolute lack of a case against Limbaugh. Moe Lane is salivating with his usual sardonic wit. Israpundit brings home the point in an open letter to Sharpton:

We read that you threatened to sue Rush Limbaugh for saying that you played a leading role in the 1991 Crown Heights riots and the riot at Freddy’s Fashion Mart in 1995. We are not an attorney and cannot give legal advice, but you are not going to sue anybody; you are going squeal like a schoolyard bully whose victim has struck him back while Rush Limbaugh does what should have been done in 1988. He will demolish you as a public figure, and quite possibly take your National Action Network down in the bargain, by exposing your long history of racist and anti-Semitic hate speech. We have done our best to do this ourselves, but our voice does not have quite the reach of Rush Limbaugh’s. When he finishes with you, no political figure in his right mind will appear at your organization as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John Edwards did in 2007, any more than they would appear at a cross-burning by the Ku Klux Klan.


We are glad that Al Sharpton finally chose to attack the wrong person, even though Rush Limbaugh will regrettably deny us the pleasure of taking him and the NAN down ourselves. Rush Limbaugh will indeed show this racist and anti-Semitic liar that there is somebody who is not afraid of him, and who will treat him like what he is: a hatemongering demagogue who appeals to the absolute dregs of African-American society the same way David Duke and Tom Metzger appeal to the dregs of Caucasian society.

Hear, hear!

    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. He is reaping what he has sowed, KARMA, “palin and simple” like his followers. Don’t we all feel better?

    Well, wasn’t that nice of you to compile a complete list of Soros-funded Media Matters smears against Limbaugh. You’re a good little sheeple, aren’t you?

    I guarantee that you don’t listen to Rush Limbaugh. Thus, any comment you make comes from a position of ignorance, and demonstrates abject stupidity on your part. (One might say that you have “acted stupidly”.)

    Your comment serves as a prime example of the liberal thought process (or lack thereof).

    Rush didn’t blame “people of color” for what happened with the NFL bid. He blamed liberals, and liberal intolerance (a characteristic you belie also).

    Also, isn’t it odd that none of Limbaugh’s actual quotes were brought up, but rather only two fabricated quotes? If Limbaugh had a history of racist quotes on his radio program, those who opposed him would have used them (and no, your Soros-funded Media Matters hit piece round-up doesn’t count).

    What “daily prejudices” does Limbaugh portray on his show? You mean, his prejudiced belief that all men are created equal? Or his prejudiced belief that America is the greatest country in history, because every single person has the same opportunity to succeed with hard work and perseverance?

    Next time, try thinking for yourself and forming your own opinion from an informed position rather than from one of ignorance.
