Dittoheads smear Jason Whitlock

Kansas City Star and Fox Sports columnist and noted fitness expert and master gardener Jason Whitlock is on the shit list of Rush Limbaugh‘s followers thanks to yesterday’s column calling on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to resist letting one of his franchises — the St. Louis Rams — end up in the hands of a man with the reputation of a little-blue-pill-popping sex tourist.

Actually, Whitlock shoots down El Rusho’s Rams bid as just a publicity stunt. I’m not so sure about that, given how limp dick Limbaugh once tried to buy the Kansas City Royals (and you thought you hated David Glass).

Anyway, Whitlock raised the ire of the dittoheads after pulling a couple of unsourced quotes attributed to Limbaugh by Jack Huberman in his book 101 People Who Are Really Screwing America. These two:

  • “You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray (Dr. King‘s assassin). We miss you, James. Godspeed.”
  • “Let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: Slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back. I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.”

%{[ data-embed-type=”image” data-embed-id=”57150c4589121ca96b960f2c” data-embed-element=”aside” ]}%Limbaugh denies saying either. But there are volumes of other quotes and skits and songs to choose from, including the comment about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb that cost him his job at ESPN and his championing of the song “Barack the Magic Negro.” And the fact that he once said, “Look, let me put it to you this way: The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”

There’s a whole lot more.

But Whitlock’s choices pissed off Red State’s Leon H. Wolf, who decided to take a page from Glenn Beck and the satirical site “Glenn Beck raped and killed a girl in 1990.”

You know how easy it would be for me to say, on the front page of this website, that “Jason Whitlock raped a woman”? Then do you know how easy it would be for some jerk with a vendetta against Whitlock to put that in his Wiki article and credit me as the source? Oh, well, I suppose the rumor is out there now. If Whitlock doesn’t like it, I guess he can prove it never happened. He’d better get busy accounting for every 30-second segment of his life if he wants us to believe him. We wouldn’t want to be accused of giving him “the benefit of the doubt.”

The Red State commenters delighted in tying Jason Whitlock’s name to the word “rapist.”
