Lloyd Marcus speaks for millions of fair-minded, free-thinking, fact-oriented Americans in defending Rush Limbaugh against charges that he is a racist. Here is Marcus at American Thinker:
I have been a faithful Rush Limbaugh radio show listener for almost 20 years. I have never heard Rush make one racist comment. As a matter of fact, I am a black man who has been inspired and encouraged by Rush on numerous occasions. . . .
The media's charges of racism against Rush are totally based on supposed "racist quotes" which cannot be documented and comments knowingly taken out of context from his radio show.
As a member of Rush's weekly 20 million listening audience, I take the assault on him personally. If Rush is a racist, then isn't it logical to assume that we, his listeners, are equally guilty for tolerating his racism?
Obviously, Rush's accusers have never listened to his radio show or else have an agenda.
It is truly disheartening and infuriating to witness the media's frenzied character assassination of Rush built on falsehoods and hearsay without one shred of evidence.
Knowing the truth about Rush, how can I possibly trust any reporting by the mainstream media?
