ST. LOUIS (AP) - Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has been dropped from a group seeking to buy the St. Louis Rams. Limbaugh was to be a limited partner in a bid led by St. Louis Blues chairman Dave Checketts, but Checketts said in a statement Wednesday that Limbaugh's participation had complicated the effort. The group will move forward without him.

The move against Limbaugh was propelled by left-wing media, liberal sportscasters, and liberal athletes, using supposed quotes from Limbaugh that mysteriously cannot be found in any recording.

Limbaugh said that he never made those statements, and that if he had, his African-American call screener, Bo Snerdley, would have walked out years ago.

I once called the show and talked to Mr. Snerdley. He was not smooth or polite. (Imagine calling ACORN). He was very intimidating. He had the kind of voice... Well if I was in a dark alley and I heard that voice behind me, I would immediately urinate into my drawers.

"This is not about the NFL, it's not about the St. Louis Rams, it's not about me," Limbaugh said. "This is about the ongoing effort by the left in this country, wherever you find them, in the media, the Democrat Party, or wherever, to destroy conservatism, to prevent the mainstreaming of anyone who is prominent as a conservative.

Limbaugh, of course, is not a racist. He celebrates conservatives of all colors. His problem is that he debunks liberalism in a way that is not politically correct... And that he is very effective when he does it. This makes him the target of the liberal media who can distort his words with impunity.

Looks like the liars won this time.

I think Rush is objectively an anti-racist, but in the age of affirmative action, racism is defined as not prefering based on race. Do you get that???? The definition of racism is reversed under the thumb of affirmative action. Ain't that cool???

Being a NASCAR fan make me a racist? The things I learn from your blog.....

janice said... far as the NFL goes, this is an organization that, instead of a LIFETIME ban, gave Michael Vick a job.

Grammy is spot on.
How's that for racism?????

Let me try this again:

Those who spread falsehoods finally checked up on it and realized they were wrong. They admitted they had not done a fact check and then said "Ooops, our bad". That's a literal quote.

Not much of an apology. It was an opportunity to mend fences which just disappeared into thin air.

How sad.
