Rush Limbaugh gets his racism on; other Sunday reading

August 26, 2007 by  

Let’s face it, Rush Limbaugh has never really hidden the fact that he speaks for the upper-class white racists of the U.S. And the upper-class white racists love him for it. His latest: telling his predominantly white audience know that the Democratic Party wants to take U.S. troops out of Iraq and move them into Darfur so they can clinch the African-American vote.

CALLER: Hey, Rush. It’s great to talk to you. I talked to you once before. I’ve been listening to you for a couple of years now, and I think I’m getting brighter, but there’s a lot to be learned. I know I’m no expert in foreign affairs, but what really confuses me about the liberals is the hypocrisy when they talk about how we have no reason to be in Iraq and helping those people, but yet everybody wants us to go to Darfur. I mean, aren’t we going to end up in a quagmire there? I mean, isn’t it — I don’t understand. Can you enlighten me on this?

LIMBAUGH: Yeah. This is — you’re not going to believe this, but it’s very simple. And the sooner you believe it, and the sooner you let this truth permeate the boundaries you have that tell you this is just simply not possible, the better you will understand Democrats in everything. You are right. They want to get us out of Iraq, but they can’t wait to get us into Darfur.

CALLER: Right.

LIMBAUGH:
There are two reasons. What color is the skin of the people in Darfur?

CALLER: Uh, yeah.

LIMBAUGH:
It’s black. And who do the Democrats really need to keep voting for them? If they lose a significant percentage of this voting bloc, they’re in trouble.

CALLER: Yes. Yes. The black population.

LIMBAUGH: Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela — who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing.

Rush Limbaugh, once again tackling the nonexistent racial issues to help make Republicans feel better about the fact that they are terrified of, and inherently hate black people. Read more from Digby and Media Matters. It’s going to be a fun, hate-filled 15 months leading to next November.

      “and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela”

      So Democrats are responsible for ending apartheid in South Africa? I’m surprised Rush would give the Democrats that much cred considering he and other “conservatives” have in the past insisted that the Republican party was responsible for the civil rights movement.

      When Rush dies, the autopsy will reveal thick layers of dough and a creamy bullshit filling. So there’s that. *whistles dixie*

    5. Top Ten Racist Limbaugh Quotes « SCAAC on October 19th, 2009 9:33 am

      [...] I don’t know much about Jesse Jackson, but I do know he’s black and he’s liberal. Did it occur to anyone that this might be something against Jesse Jackson as a person and not because of his race?! Don’t bring race into the picture unless the quote-ee does! If a quote doesn’t have “black”, “African American”, one of the derogatory “black” terms, “slavery”, or something similar, there’s a good chance it’s not about race. Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela — who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing. [...]

      This is an example of racism? Well this proves one thing and one thing only. Liberals will falsely accuse anybody who disagrees with them of racism. When Robert Reich said that “white construction workers need not apply” for stimulus projects, was he decried as a racist? No. When Eric Holder refused to prosecute the Black panthers for voter intimidation was he decried a racist? No. When Obama’s people said that Bill Clinton was a racist during the 2008 campaign were they right? When Obama said that his grandmother was a “typical while woman” was he being racist? When Obama allowed guns to be run into Mexico knowing that they would be used to kill Mexicans wasn’t that racist? When Jaime Foxx called Miley Cyrus “white trash” wasn’t that racist? When Jess jackson said that NYC was “Hymietown” (an ethnic slur against Jews in case you were unaware) wasn’t that racist? Was he called out for it? No. You liberals are a joke! Because of you continually using the false accusation of racism as a political weapon only against those who don’t hold a liberal world view, the word “racist” doesn’t mean anything to anybody anymore. It’s just a synonym for “poopyhead.”
