Limbaugh: He's A Victim Of Fabricated Quotations

Talk show host Rush Limbaugh, whose bid to buy the St. Louis Rams has run into opposition within the NFL, says he's a victim of "totally made-up and fabricated quotes" attributed to him.

In an e-mail to The Associated Press, the conservative commentator calls reports about him "outrageous and slanderous." He notes he would be a minority owner in the prospective group, and adds that he is from Missouri and was saddened when the Cardinals left for Arizona. Limbaugh declared that he loves the National Football League.

Earlier today, Colts owner Jim Irsay vowed to vote against Limbaugh. League commissioner Roger Goodell said NFL insiders would not tolerate what he called "divisive" statements.

Prominent blacks are already lining up against Limbaugh. NFL Players Association head DeMaurice Smith, who is black, urged players to speak out against Limbaugh's bid, and several have already said they would not play for his team.

    Anonymous on Oct 20, 2009 at 08:44 PM, you missed the bus. The lies posted on the news came from the internet. The remarks were never said period. So, you accuse a man for being a racist when "someone" (no one can find anywhere, a recording, a transcript) made these lies available on the internet. O'baby Stink Oil, I seek the truth and facts. It is never good to slander someone you may not agree with. It will come back to haunt you.

    Rush want attention and that's what he is getting from you racist ignorant haters. You would rather follow a man like this because he hate blacks. You call it telling the truth. I think it's called a way for him to make money. And you guys are following in his trap just because it's a chance to express how racist you are. I still love you no matter how much you hate me!

    You have make up a whole scenerio of posting when you disagree with people.And you use it as a defence for Rush against Mike.I am sure that Limbaugh is loving you all the way to the bank.Al Sharpton too.It's folks like you,these Predatory Celebrities prey on.Sharpton and Rush would not have a playground if they didn't have ones like you for a fan club.I think they both are a riot.Go at it boys!!

    To Billy, you miss the point. Rush is just a radio show for conservatives and moderates. When he quotes facts, just like Fox news quotes, liberals hate that truth is taken over their rhetoric of lies. Why, because some of us want the truth. Both major parties are corrupt and I have never met an honest politician. I just want to know what party is the lesser of the evils. Right now, it ain't the democrats. The point to defending Rush in this instance, it the actual "lies" of what he supposed said, is on moveon.org. He never said them period. Just like the dems, I am one, went after Joe the plumber, personal attacks with lies ain't kosher. It makes liars of the accusers.

    I don't really only see miniscule character differences of either Jackson,Sharpton and others Rush.They just pull strength form opposite ideals.I don't see Rush being shut up and I do not see him being a Victim other than where he has put himself and I believe he is loving it.O'baby Stinky Oil is ready to fight for Rush and I can tell you no one is going to shut up Sharpton or Rush Limbaugh.IT "AIN'T GOING TO HAPPEN".I laugh when I see people so devoted to these types of personailties.They love being victims and having people stand up and support them.And again no one is going to make either of these men go away.They both are Kings and heroes with thier own kingdoms.With weapons of fire,thier tongues.

    Mike, when people make up lies against you (none of the comments he supposedly made are true), post it on the internet, put it on national news, he is a victim. I am sure if the same was said about yourself, you would understand.

    Rush a victim? Thats like me saying I found Jimmy Hoffa's body.

    I totally agree with you, but unfortunately, Rush's actions and intentions justify the "new" meaning of capitalism. Exploiting people's ignorance for personal gain is who's fault, if anyone's? Is it the fault of the ignorant people themselves, or those who exploit them? I dont have a concrete answer for that, but it's definitely not up to Al Sharpton or any of these other clowns to stop his progress...Did Rush stand in the middle of the Tawana Brawley marches, or any of the other silly demonstrations by Al, or Jesse? No. So they should stay out of the way of Rush's goals, no matter how pompous or self-indulging they are...

    Given your comment about 'Rush" all that he has said publical proves he is not a racist.Quite true and totaly agrees with Rush's statements about himself.A man that makes money off arousing and seducing people with in his on words "bombbast".A true entertainer that speaks to emotions,stirring hate and anger.He loves it everytime the dough comes in.A true producer of hate.I don't think its racism for blacks,it a disregard for the ignorance of some people.If you don't get my point,you never will.Rush has learned that also,a VERY INTELLIGENT MAN and that's putting it mildly as they say.
