Rush Limbaugh said, on the air on September 18, 2009:
Now let's go to this Potok kook. This guy is a genuine, off-the-wall lunatic. He's at the Southern Poverty Law Center. He was on Hardboiled last night with Chris Matthews. And this guy Potok is an embarrassment of a human being.
Okay, so you there heard this despicable embarrassment of a human being, Mark Potok, from the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Project.
So I'm doing a total parodic rant. I mean, the sarcasm is dripping -- And this bottom feeder at the Southern Poverty Law Center, Mark Potok, is putting it out there that I made a call for segregated buses.Note: The Southern Poverty Libel Center (also know as the Southern Poverty Law Center) is in the business of sliming conservatives and labeling as many as possible as racists, extremists, white-supremacists or haters. They do this based on the flimsiest of evidence, not even bothering to confirm whether their interpretation is true.
The SPLC is a hateful, false and mendacious organization with a far-left agenda. Libel and slander are their weapons of choice. They provide leftwing bloggers, pundits and websites with a false "expert" to quote from in support of their race-baiting, e.g., " The Southern Poverty Law Center, who tracks hate groups in the U.S., has identified Jesus Christ as a white separatist, extremist and racist." (This is a fictitious example. They actually haven't gotten around to Jesus yet.)
Finally, Rush Limbaugh has come out and told the truth about Mark Potok. File these quotes away to use against Mark Potok the next time you need them.
