Napolitano: Rush Limbaugh Is Not A Threat To The People Of Florida

Reported by Donna - May 1, 2006

In a segment between Trace Gallagher (who was substituting for Shepard Smith) and Judge Andrew Napolitano spoke about the deal that Rush Limbaugh had made in Florida on the doctor shopping charges. Napolitano basically said that Limbaugh had to stay clean for 18 months and then the charges would be nullified, as if they never existed.

One remark that Napolitano said amused me. He said, "Rush is not a threat to the people of Florida, other people are."

Comment: I find it extraordnary that Limbaugh is gettng off so light on doctor shopping, which is a felony in the state of Florida. But how does Napolitano know that Limbaugh is not a threat to the people of Florida?

Here is what Rush Limbaugh has said about drug users:

"There's nothing good about drug use. We know it. It destroys individuals. It destroys families. Drug use destroys societies. Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country. And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. And the laws are good because we know what happens to people in societies and neighborhoods which become consumed by them. And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up.

"What this says to me is that too many whites are getting away with drug use. Too many whites are getting away with drug sales. Too many whites are getting away with trafficking in this stuff. The answer to this disparity is not to start letting people out of jail because we're not putting others in jail who are breaking the law. The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too."
-- Rush Limbaugh show, Oct. 5, 1995

He said, "They ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up." But not if you're a multi-millionaire and have Roy Black as your lawyer now, right? Hypocrit. Or should I say, Flip - Flopper!
