22-year-old college baseball player Chris Lane was gunned down this week in Oklahoma while out for jog. One of the three perpetrators reportedly told police they did it simply because they were “bored.” Two of the three teenagers were black; the other was white. All were under the age of 18.
“No matter where you look in the media, it’s not a racial event,” the host said. “This is the epitome of media irresponsibility. This is a classic illustration of just what role the mainstream media is playing in the destruction of American culture and society.”
“There has been more outrage in the mainstream media to that stupid clown story at the Missouri State Fair than there has been to this wanton murder in Oklahoma,” Limbaugh charged. He claimed that he purposely withheld from talking about the story for 24 hours just to see whether the mainstream media would pick up on a story where “the victim is white and two of the perpetrators are black.”
“It took them 24 hours!” he asserted. “They are reporting it and letting it go. They’re not focusing on the racial component of any of the people involved in this. We have not heard from the Reverend Sharpton, the Reverend Jackson, the NAACP, we haven’t heard from anybody.”
