KEITH OLBERMANN: Legally, we've come a very long way since the Haymarket bombing in Chicago in 1886 when we wound up hanging some anarchist writers, who were not even in the state, as murderers by proxy. And legally there is this question of "temporal remoteness" [separation in time between the statement and the act]. You say this now on the radio, it happens in August. It's not like yelling "fire!" in a crowded theater; it is protected speech. But do you think that Limbaugh has any idea that were he to repeat what he said on the air, say the day before the convention, or during it, he might actually be morally or legally responsible for incitement to riot?
He is talking about comments Rush made about the Dem convention in August. He fails to mention that the basis for these comments comes from people like Al Sharpton who said on O'Reilly that if the nomination is taken away from Obama that their would be demonstrating at the Dem convention organized by Sharpton himself. Also the site called Recreate68.org is all about causing anarchy at the Dem convention in August.
For Olberman to suggest that this was all Rush's idea is a bald-faced lie and ignores the facts that are staring him right in the the face. Of course Olby never let a fact get in the way of a "Worst Person In the World" award.
