Today from a blog entitled chicagoboyz.net:
".....we have to be increasingly worried that leftists will strike out against the rest of us based on their delusional fantasies about what we non-leftists believe. And make no mistake about it, leftists do harbor dark delusions about non-leftists. The fact that so leftists many fell completely for the Limbaugh quote hoax proves it. Let’s be clear about what they believed Limbaugh actually said:
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.
You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed.
How can anyone believe that a mainstream American figure would believe such things much less speak them aloud? As a practical matter, how do they imagine that a celebrity such as Limbaugh, who is one of the most recorded people in America, managed to keep these quotes hidden for long? Why isn’t there audio or video of him making these or similar statements? How has he managed to be on the air for 20+ years without making more than these two slips?
Only someone seriously immersed in a deep fantasy about Limbaugh’s beliefs would swallow such quotes without checking them or thinking about the practical possibility of Limbaugh making such statements without every person in the world knowing about it within the hour."
He ends with this insightful comment:
"Make no mistake. They aren’t just targeting Limbaugh as someone so evil that they can justify any extremity in fighting him. They are targeting the rest of us as well."
