Rush Limbaugh Calls for Riots in Denver During the Dem Convention

…and All Spin Zone's Richard Blair wonders, given that inciting riot is a crime, "How is it that a GOP attack dog frontman can call for riots in the streets of Denver during the Democratic National Convention, and not be currently residing in a jail cell someplace?" while Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper says, "Anyone who would call for riots in an American city has clearly lost their bearings." That's polite.
[Limbaugh] said the riots would ensure a Democrat is not elected as president, and his listeners have a responsibility to make sure it happens.

"Riots in Denver, the Democrat Convention would see to it that we don't elect Democrats," Limbaugh said during Wednesday's radio broadcast. He then went on to say that's the best thing that could happen to the country.

…Limbaugh said with massive riots in Denver, which he called "Operation Chaos," the people on the far left would look bad.

"There won't be riots at our convention," Limbaugh said of the Republican National Convention. "We don't riot. We don't burn our cars. We don't burn down our houses. We don't kill our children. We don't do half the things the American left does."
So true. I was just saying to Iain last night how we should have some children just so we can kill them, before we burn down our house.

When people called in to tell Limbaugh he was a fooking madman, he adjusted his statement to: "I am not inspiring or inciting riots, I am dreaming of riots in Denver," and then later blamed the whole thing on Al Sharpton, saying he had threatened "there's going to be trouble" if the presidency is taken from Obama by superdelegates.

That guy is so full of shit he's like a walking compost heap. It's amazing there aren't glorious sunflowers growing out of every orifice.
