Libtalkers Repeat Phony Limbaugh Quotes Even After Others Retract
Even After Networks Retract, Libtalkers Continue Smears
Audio? We don't need no stinkin' audio!
Even after several media outlets have retracted the phony Limbaugh racist "quotes" that were used in the successful attempt to destroy his bid for the St Louis Rams, some libtalkers have stubbornly continued to repeat the smears.
In this inexcusable instance from the Stephanie Miller Show, a number of fabricated statements were read on-air today, even after a producer cautioned them that the source is suspect. Earlier in the program, Miller and her assistants laughed as a caller requested actual proof that the audio exists.
Here's the transcript and clip (featuring both segments together):
WARD (48:00): Um really? (sarcastic tone) Should I read some of the racist quotes again?
MILLER: Yes Jim! Yes read some of the racist Rush Limbaugh fun facts.
WARD: I’ll see if the computer will let me. Well, he talked about the slavery thing
LAVOIE: Well, we need to be careful about that one came from a book 101 People Who Are Really Screwing Up America by John Huberman and none of the quotes in that book were sourced.
WARD: (concerned because he apparently already read from the book in segment 1) Ohhhhh.
LAVOIE: So we need to be careful about the merits of slavery quote.
MILLER: Well, there’s lots of other ones. Trust me I’ve heard lots of other ones.
LAVOIE: Right I know I know.
WARD (not paying heed to Lavoie’s warning) (imitating Limbaugh): Do you know who deserves a posthumous medal of honor James Earl Ray! With Mr. James God speed.
WARD (in his own voice): He’s the you know murderer of Martin Luther King. Nice.
WARD (imitating Limbaugh): Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?
MILLER: Where’s his Rush music Chris? Ah go ahead.
WARD: The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies my friends. The NFL often looks like a game between the bloods and the crips without any weapons. (Limbaugh theme music begins) There I said it! They’re twelve percent of the population. Who the hell cares? Take that bone out of your nose and call me back!
WARD: You know that the ah. I don’t know where they get these racist allegations?
MILLER: Yeah, those are the ones I’ve actually seen the clips and heard the clips on television. Yeah.
MILLER (9:34): No actually, there’s actual audio.
WARD: There were actual recordings.
MILLER: All of the things he was quoted they backed it up with the actual audio and video from Rush’s show.
MILLER (10:28): What we’re saying is that our show and many others on TV have posted actual audio and video, so we’re not…Rush claims that this has all been made up. But, how do you dispute things that he’s actually said that are (pause) we’ve played back on this show or people have played back on television?
MALE CALLER (12:44): No one has proven to me that he’s racist. (Lavoie laughing in the background)
MILLER: Really? Saying slavery wasn’t that bad, that at least it built this country, you don’t think that might be offensive?
MALE CALLER: You’re also twisting the words that I heard that apparently he did say. But, the ting is (Miller interrupts)
MILLER: No, we played the actual audio, saying to an African American caller take the bone out of your nose and call me back.
MALE CALLER: What I heard he did not say slavery wasn’t bad, he said slavery built the south and that is a fact.
JIM WARD (15:33): You want to hear what Limbaugh said about slavery? (Ward reading) He says that “Let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country because it was a bad thing, quite the opposite, slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back. I’m saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.” That’s not racist?
