Limbaugh addresses Toledo controversyWritten by Autumn Lee | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Editor’s Note: The following was read by Rush Limbaugh during his May 14 “morning update,” syndicated nationally and heard locally on WSPD 1370 AM during “Fred LeFebvre and the Morning News.” Text is reprinted courtesy of Premiere Radio Network.
For decades, the American left have demonized their opponents as intolerant, but as always it is they who exhibit the very behavior they claim to despise.
Case in point today is what happened to Crystal Dixon, associate vice president human, resources, University of Toledo. She responded to a recent Toledo Free Press editorial concerning gay rights. She wrote that she took great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the gay lifestyle are civil rights victims. She made it clear that she was not speaking on behalf of the university, but as a private citizen. In her words, “as a Black woman who happens to be an alumnus of the University of Toledo’s Graduate School and employee and a business owner.”
Now, for daring to challenge liberal beliefs, she was fired from her job. University of Toledo President Lloyd Jacobs condemned her comments, saying, “They do not accord with the values of the University of Toledo, making it necessary, therefore, for me to repudiate her.”
Now, you can agree or disagree with Crystal Dixon as you choose, but she is an American whose livelihood is now jeopardized for merely expressing a point of view. This is Stalinism on parade, precisely the kind of government-sponsored tyranny the Bill of Rights protects us from. Make no mistake, today the true home of intolerance and repression is all too often the American college campus run by the American left.
