Media Frets Over Jesse Jr.
February 20, 2013
RUSH: I'm surprised they even reported it, Snerdley.Snerdley's in there having a cow right now over what CNN's doing. CNN's got a graphic up there: "Jesse Jackson Jr. Pleads Guilty, Sad Day for the Civil Rights Community." Snerdley's very cynical today. "What the hell did he ever do for the civil rights community?" You ought to be thankful they're even reporting it! Do you realize how few people care? The son of the Reverend Jackson, Jesse Jackson Jr. -- and his wife -- are pleading guilty here to the inappropriate use of campaign funds, fur capes and who knows whatever else.And it's a "Sad Day for the Civil Rights Community." (interruption) I don't know why it's a sad day. See, you and I don't think in these terms. You know, when Ronald Reagan died, did anyone say, "Oh, it's a bad day for the white community"? People just don't think this way, but they do. So Jesse Jackson Jr. engages in some criminal activities. Does that taint the whole civil rights community? Not to me it doesn't. What did he ever do for it anyway? He wasn't at Selma.
Anyway, it's part and parcel of the way CNN sees the world. "Sad Day for the Civil Rights Community." If the Reverend Jackson had a son, wouldn't he look like Jesse Jackson Jr.? (laughing) I wonder. You know, I say these things, and you know the left's out there, and they have outrageous reactions, and they just have no sense of humor. They don't understand that we relate things to things other people have said months or years ago.
You people listen every day and you're up to speed. You know the context of things in this program. But if you happen to be a Democrat and you just turned the radio on and you heard me say that you are probably smoking now. (laughing) You're writing letters to the FCC and whoever else. Low-information voter voters are scratching their heads. "He does have a son, and it is Jesse Jackson Jr., and Jesse Jackson Jr. looks like Jesse Jackson Jr.! What does Limbaugh mean?"http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2...s_over_jesse_jr
