The Czar would stay out of the Rush Limbaugh story, thank you. The Czar cares little for Mr. Limbaughs style of broadcasting, but unlike every one of his critics, the Czar has actually heard Rush Limbaughs show in its entirety many, many times.
It isnt that bad of a show. In fact, the Czar can tell if you have never really listened to the show because you would tend to use words like blowhard, bloviate, loudmouth, and so on. Critics of Limbaugh tend to dismiss his fans as dittoheads, when in fact it is they who repeat what they think they should say about him.
Take a critic and make him listen to the show. He will discover that contrary to liberal portrayals, Limbaugh is a fairly soft speaker, who takes callers of all shapes and sizes, and backs up his editorials with quite a bit of research. He can be scathing, but the facts almost invariably bear him out. Indeed, the Czars criticisms are that he tends to appropriate other peoples words and phrases as his own without paying respects to the source, and he spends too much time with callers who heap praise upon him.
Rush Limbaugh of course is the biggest boogie man the liberals have ever found. They have nearly unanimously declared him to be the de facto head of the Republican Party, and know full well that conservatives take their marching orders from him. Why? Because most liberals take their marching orders from someone, so therefore conservatives do as well. The liberal mind has a terrible time understanding that Limbaugh is an entertainer, an engaging speaker, and a witty historiannot a politician, pundit, or seer. He is just an entertainer. The Czar very much doubts Limbaugh has ever described himself otherwise.
As you know, Limbaugh announced he would like to be a part owner of the Rams. Suddenly, the NFL grew a conscience (apparently overnight), and said that his type of personality is unwelcome in the NFL.
Why? He made two horribly racial comments on his radio show. What were they? Well, now it gets murky. Turns out the quotes were pulled off a quotation website that requires no verification or fact-checking. In fact, it turns out the quotes were invented by a liberal goon and posted with the intention of trashing Limbaughs reputationknowing full well the quotes would go viral and people would believe them for years.
Finally, someone found a verified quote from him cracking wise about a particular player being popular with the media, and that he would not be nearly as popular were he white. The Czar read the quote and thought, well, that was a dumb thing to joke about because it lacked a clear punchline.
That alone was enough for the NFL, who forced Limbaugh out of the candidacy, and who also endured the hilarious irony of Al Sharpton calling Limbaugh out for being racially divisive, and a protest from Jesse Jackson who accused Limbaugh of using racial slurs and hate speechless than a year after Jackson was caught using a forbidden word on air, right around the time he advocated openly castrating the President.
Let us play the usual game we play against liberal psychology. Let us agree for the sake of argument that all cultures are equal in the eyes of liberals. Imagine now an NFL ownership candidate was discovered to say the following objectionable comments:
A white boy that makes C’s in college can make it to the White House.
Black people dominate sports in the United States. 20% of the population and 90% of the final four.
Every town has the same two malls: the one white people go to and the one white people used to go to.
School shootings were invented by blacks.
These are actual quotes made by an entertainer equally as popular and well-compensated as Rush Limbaugh. However, the Czar predicts that if Chris Rock, the speaker of the above quotes, announced he was interested in buying the LA Rams, the NFL owners would climb over each other to fellate him into the club. Why? Because Chris Rock is black, and Rush Limbaugh is white.
Rocks comments are a little better worded that Limbaughs, but there is no doubt they are dripping with racial divisiveness, whereas Limbaughs quote was just unfunny. Rock did make these comments, but he made them in an entertainment context, the same as Rush.
So how does the typical liberal feel about this? How does he explain away the hurtfully divisive comments made by Rock? Ahemthat is, without saying that Rock gets a pass because he is black…which means that multicultural sensitivity has no meaning for liberals, since it implies that one culture is exceptional over others.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
