Skip to comments.Democrats Say Talk Radio Killed Black Florida Teen

On MSNBC last week, Democratic Party strategist Karen Finney blamed talk radio king Rush Limbaugh for the fatal shooting last month of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood watch captain in a mixed neighborhood in Florida.
Limbaugh, along with Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney, "reinforce and validate old stereotypes that associate the poor and welfare as criminal behavior with African Americans and people of color, calling us lazy, undeserving recipients of public assistance," Finney said.
In the Trayvon Martin incident, Finney claimed "those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences."
One might ask how Finney knows that Martin's half-Peruvian killer, George Zimmerman (whose photo suggests he's a person of color himself), listens to Limbaugh or has been affected by the candidates' speeches.
As in ex-Rep. Gabby Giffords' shooting last year, this is a case of a Democratic mouthpiece accusing foes of their big-government schemes of murder. So much for President Obama's call for civility in political discourse.
But Finney is just one manifestation of a new war aiming to silence Limbaugh and like-minded talk radio hosts. After Limbaugh several weeks ago used rude words to describe a Georgetown law school feminist activist who wants taxpayers to finance her contraception, the Los Angeles city council last week entered the realm of government censorship of the airwaves.
By 13-to-2 vote the L.A. City Council called on "management of radio and television stations in Los Angeles to do everything in their power to ensure that their on-air hosts do not use and promote racist and sexist slurs over public airwaves in the City of Los Angeles."

As long as a single Conservative is able to exercise his or her First Amendment rights, every black person in the country is vulnerable to brutal, random, murderous attacks.
NPR and Pacifica Radio need to be shut down in response!!
Gee, I wonder if Walter Williams agrees with this assessment. Rush is definitely a racist. That’s why Justice Thomas officiated at his wedding to Marta, etc, etc.

Oh good, no more rap music.
They’re never responsible for anything. Always a childish excuse. The biggest babies in the world, hatemongers, divisive, racist. What a sorry bunch of “adults”
What is sad is that some people will actually fall for her cr@p.
And Jeremiah Wright and his pupil Barry Obama who discourage "middleclassedness" (wow, what a word)...
They are not at all to blame.
Kill Whitey and GD America!
Not to blame...eh?
Ya mean Zimmerman was compelled to pull the trigger because he thought the kid looked like a slut?
But of course, it is so obvious now that lib pundits have pointed it out.
The left is enjoying this kid’s murder every second. they haven’t been this excited since Gifford’s was shot. To spew their idiocy on the air and blame Republicans is absolutely pathetic. This is all the left know how to do, create a distraction so that no one looks at the big picture of what Obama is doing to this country. Is Zimmerman a Republican? 99.99 percent he is NOT, like it even matters. What happened is not a Democrat or a Republican issue, it was a tragic shooting and that is all, but leftists are scum so not surprise that they would want to use the blood of this kid for their own political gain
That's what Jesse Jackson did when he admitted he was relieved to see the kids following him were white.
Yep. And talk radio is responsible for the 40 shot and 10 killed last weekend in Chicago too.
As idiotic as the propaganda is, we must not let it go unchallenged.
and tomorrow it will be Wall St and the big banks, Oh and don’t forget Bush
How did they forget Gov. Sarah Palin, President Bush and Vice President Cheney?
Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are hoping and praying for a black on white war. And the media it seems is stoking the fire.
Hannity, Levin, and Rush stayed away from the eligibility issue to avoid being targeted for boycott and to save their mighty thrones.
How’s that working out for them now?
It certainly isn't conservative talk radio.
