CNN's Rick Sanchez: A Liar AND a Murderer?

Yeah, you know Rick Sanchez - one of the people that foiled Rush Limbaugh's attempt to purchase an NFL team by plastering phony racist quotes all over the news. CNN's Sanchez was particularly hurtful, as he plaster this bit of hate under Rush's faces and credited it to him:

Too bad Rush never said it, or anything remotely close. Well, never let the truth get in the way of a good story, even if the story is false and is aimed a private citizen his right to make private investments. Sanchez did give a half-hearted confession a few days later - "We have been unable to independently confirm that quote", which leads me to believe that Sanchez hopes that one day, he will...

But let's talk about Sanchez, and a true story that has gone unreported during his rise to cable news fame. Apparently, Sanchez - in a drunken stupor - ran over a man (also a bit tipsy) outside of a Dolphins game while working as a Miami news anchor, then fled the scene. This report from 1991, The Forgotten Man, details the pain of the victim who was left to suffer while Sanchez wiggles his way out of prosecution:

Minutes after midnight on the morning of December 10, 1990, an intoxicated Smuzinick darted out in front of a Volvo on a residential street near Joe Robbie Stadium. The driver of the car, WSVN-TV Channel 7 anchorman Rick Sanchez, became the subject of a subsequent January 16 New Times story that described the odd circumstances of the accident. Sanchez, whom a Metro-Dade police officer said "smelled strongly of alcohol," first stopped his car but then later left the scene. A blood test to determine Sanchez's sobriety was not administered until an hour and fifteen minutes after the collision. Though Sanchez says he tried to aid Smuzinick at the scene of the accident and flag down motorists, eyewitnesses claim the anchorman ignored the injured man and loudly told police and bystanders that blood tests were pointless, and would hurt his public image.

Best known for his stint as a sometimes-melodramatic correspondent on Channel 7's "Crime Check," Sanchez continues his work on the station's evening and late newscasts while awaiting a September 13 court date on misdemeanor drunk-driving charges. Though the results of one test show the newsman's blood-alcohol level was .15 -slightly over the legal .10 limit - the test was performed after Sanchez left the scene of the accident. In January Sanchez told New Times he had consumed no alcohol the night of the accident. His attorney, Richard Essen, now says the anchorman returned home and had "a couple of drinks to calm his nerves" before returning to the scene.

Meanwhile, after two months in a coma, Smuzinick has regained consciousness and is making slow improvement. His right side remains largely paralyzed due to massive brain damage, but he can move his left arm and leg and sometimes hold his head upright. Using hand signals, he can answer yes or no to simple questions. Doctors last Friday removed a feeding tube from his trachea, and Smuzinick can now eat liquid foods.

Sanchez - wealthy, compassionate liberal that he is - never offered to help Smuzinick, or even went to visit him while he struggled through his long and painful rehabilitation. But Sanchez can rest easy now, because dead men tell no tales:

Jeffrey Smuzinick, who was left paralyzed after being struck by the car of Channel 7 anchor Rick Sanchez, died Monday in a Pennsylvania nursing home. He was 36.

Sanchez - a cold-hearted drunk, liar, and overall miserable, frugal bastard - gets off the hook, Ted Kennedy-style, by using the legal system to outmaneuver his poorer victim. And as we can see by the Rush Limbaugh episode, this incident has made not a dent in his foul persona - he will still tell any lie, as loudly and publicly as possible, in order to further his own ends, be it a personal agenda or a political one. All while playing the compassionate liberal card, of course, in order to make him immune from the criticism of his peers.

So they next time Sanchez opens his mouth, remember that he's a killer, and like most of his ilk, he's most likely lying. And the next time you see a liberal talking head on TV accusing a conservative of some heinous crime with scant evidence, take a moment to wonder what dark secret they might be hiding....

Or maybe the left (at least guys like Kennedy + Sanchez) are taking out their guilt, and maybe inner self-loathing, on what is to them (and their coherts) a perfectly acceptable target - conservatives.

Projection, self-hatred, pathological lying - all part of the liberal psyche!

It seems to me that all the negative vibes this blowhard (Rush Hudson Limbaugh A.KA. Jeff Christie) has been spewing over these many years has come back to blow back on his face (A classic “Blow Back”). He always tries to give off the airs that he can have anything he wants but as we all witness those with more money and more influence tossed him aside like sack of potatoes and the ultimate insult was that it was done in public (money don’t buy you everything butterball).

Now of course he blames everyone else (Michael J. Fox, Perez Hilton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor, Hillary Clinton, Olympia Snowe, ESPN, NFL, the media, basically people of color, the handicapped, women and gays) when of course all you have to do is listen to his show and plainly hear his daily prejudices filled sermons. So NFL, I salute you decision, job well done. And to the whaling cry baby perched on his self made pedestal, quit your whining it was your own fault. Don’t we all feel better?

For so many years he has spent his time on the radio mis-labeling others. Finally he had his judgment day.

Rush Limbaugh: Transcript of radio broadcast from Oct. 14, 2008
By Keith Vance

Editor’s note: This is a verbatim transcript of Limbaugh explaining how ACORN, Barack Obama, Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright are all involved in a radical leftwing conspiracy to teach black kids to hate America.

From the time of my birth 57 years ago to today, this country has grown and expanded, prosperity has opened its doors for more and more people around the world, not just people born in this country.

We know the stories of asians immigrating and running rings around people born in this country academically in California. We know all about the immigration, legal and illegal, to get into the country. We know that the standard of living has risen. We know that technological advancement is going along at light speed.

And yet, during this period of time, whether it be the last 57 years, or the last 20 years, it seems that the majority of the black population has remained angry, frustrated and behind – they’ve been left behind. They’re acting like they’ve been left behind, and of course we’ve heard that this is because of racism, natural systemic institutional racism in America. We’re unfair. That this country is just horrible and rotten.

Do you ever ask yourself how it is that people not even born here can come here and in a few short years begin prospering in school, they’re own business, and yet people who are born in this country somehow have been raised to hate it – to still think they’re back in the days of slavery.

I actually think, after studying all this ACORN stuff, and reading what Stanley Kurtz has written about this, I actually believe that what has taken place here, in addition to liberal Democrat legislation – such as the great society and the war on poverty, which a lot of people would now acknowledge really busted up the black family by the government taking the place of a husband and father – he’s free to roam around and bear no responsibility. The mother remained the mother, she got the financial assistance from this legislation from the federal government. The federal government became the father. The father didn’t have to hang around in order for the kids to be OK – depending on how you define OK.

And as you study more and more of this ACORN stuff you find that it has been part of an entire movement that has been going for two maybe three decades right under our noses. We thought that it was just liberal welfare policies and all that that kept blacks from progressing while other minorities grew and prospered but no. It is these wackos from Bill Ayers to Jeremiah Wright to other anti-american afro-centric black liberation theologists, working with ACORN, and Barack Obama is smack dab in the middle of it. They have been training young black kids to hate hate hate this country. And they trained their parents before that to hate hate hate this country. It was a movement. It was a Bill Ayers anti-capitalist anti-american educational movement. ACORN is how it was implemented right under our noses.

They’re doing far more folks than just cheating when it comes to elections and registration. They’re in deep in this mortgage crisis. ACORN and Obama, and Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, the Democrat Party have their fingerprints the sub-prime mortgage crisis. The whole concept of affordable housing was people who can’t afford a mortgage are going to get one, because America is unfair.

It has been a movement. It has been a religion. And Obama and Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers were all up to their big ears in it.

Is that your own blow back there Paul, in your 3rd post? Because you posted a long essay, a transcript (which I can neither prove nor deny) from Rush ... and you posted it without comment.

But based on your first 2 posts, it would seem you think this is evidence of Rush's malfeasance or racism or something. But what it is, is the plain truth.

Everybody else in America is getting ahead, if they make the effort, yet it appears that vast numbers of black people aren't. And we have had 45 or more years of programs designed specifically, if perhaps not named so explicitly, to help them. Instead things appear now to be worse. And the vast majority of those "help" programs are liberal driven, with ever-increasing budgets. But they aren't having a positive long term effect.

The "de-hyphenization" of blacks - you can call it what you want, but it comes right down to integrating them with the rest of society, as equal members sharing this golden pie - has an enormous force working against it. Why? Who would do such a thing?

The groups that Rush points out appear to be working against it, yet they are all left wing groups. "hate hate hate" is their message - no matter what is done to help, take the money, but reject the message and the messenger.

Is it madness, evil, dishonesty, or racist that Rush connects the obvious dots and talks about it? Looks like one of those 800-pound-gorilla-in-the-room situations to me.

America ISN'T unfair. America has been bending over backwards in every way possible for more than 2 solid generations to try and raise up a people once held down. But it isn't working. Rush has one thesis in the transcript you pasted. What's yours?
Blow back indeed.

The NFL decides who becomes an owner not the other way around.

All this blowhard (Rush Hudson Limbaugh A.KA. Jeff Christie) has to offer is his money and his opinions, which in my opinion are on the fringes of racism (one mans opinion). There are many more groups biding for the Rams, not just his group. Lets face it there are more men with money that will gladly fill the slot and the Rams will win or lose depending on how well the team works together and not on whether or not Rush is an owner.

As for Vick, well he is a player (he has talent not like you, Rush or I, unless you are a NFL player?) and he served his time and the NFL decided we live in the land of second chances, so why not (I personally don’t like it but, oh well). Life has never been fair (NEWS FLASH!)

Now as to the “Free Speech” argument, I guess many of you like myself heard Rush on Thursday “Almost in tears”, priceless. But the last two days he now is in his normal ranting and will continue until someone surpasses him, “Free Speech” continues, so quit your whining.
