Rush Limbaugh: A white supremacist’s biggest ally

September 16, 2009 by  

It’s hard to figure who white supremacists like more. Could it be thinly veiled brother-in-arms Glenn Beck? How about Lou Dobbs? Or Pat Buchanan? Or a number of other openly racist conservative entertainers?

The race for who is the biggest ally to the white supremacist movement in the U.S. is a tight one, but in the end, Rush Limaugh has shown that day-in, day-out, he is a standard bearer for whites that believe that all non-whites are evil. His latest?

“In Obama’s America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering, ‘Yay, right on, right on, right on, right on,” Limbaugh said. I wonder if Obama’s going to come to come to the defense of the assailants the way he did his friend Skip Gates up there at Harvard.”

I think it’s obvious that Limbaugh has realized that the right-wing crazy train has left the station without him. And there’s no way he’ll let Beck and others take over his spot as lead crazy of the fringe-right movement.

    Ta-Nehisi Coates of The Atlantic has a great take on the complete disconnect between President Obama’s actions & the racial right’s response here:

    Money quote (and latest entry into that oh-so-elite-&-esteemed club, “Things McBride Really Really Wishes He Had Written Hisself”):

    Barack Obama, bourgeois in every way that bourgeois is right and just, will not dance.

    He tells kids to study–and they seethe. He accepts an apology for an immature act of rudeness–and they go hysterical. He takes his wife out for a date–and their veins bulge.

    His humanity, his ordinary blackness, is killing them. Dig the audio of his response to Kanye West–the way he says, “He’s a jackass.” He sounds like one of my brothers. And that’s the point, because that’s what he is. Barack Obama refuses to be their nigger. And it’s driving them crazy.

    It reminds me of a completely wacky evening many moons ago I spent at a speech I didn’t want to attend except, to shamelessly run on this awkward sentence even longer, a girl I was interested in wanted me to go.

    The speaker’s name escapes me, but the thrust of it was that American Buddhists had to ‘fight’ to be recognized as a legitimate mainstream religion in the same way as Christianity, and that ‘any means’ were acceptable to make that dream a reality. He also went into some Tony Robbins-ish blather about ‘Power Yoga’ and ‘Power Meditation’ being the path to money and material wealth, and material wealth was the only thing that eliminated the suffering outlined in Buddha’s Four Noble Truths. I had previously read Buddha’s recommendations of how to divest yourself of suffering, and accumulating a big pile of moolah or a new Porsche wasn’t among the prescriptions.

    The kicker of the evening came as we were leaving the event and a couple of women ahead of us were talking loudly enough for me to hear.

    “I meditated for two hours today!” Said one.

    Replied the other: “Really. Well, I meditated for four hours and cleared my mind completely!”

    To which the first woman responded smugly: “Yes, but I’m better at meditating than you are.”

    Competitive meditation? Cash-conscious Buddhists? Only in America.

    I don’t think it is fair to blame the seething animosity and hostility towards Obama on racism. I honestly don’t think it has anything to do with racism. I think it just has to do with the fact that Obama is black.

    Rush Limbaugh just goes where the base is headed. He’s one of those guys who follows from the rear, so when the base went racist, he went racist. And because Rush can’t do anything halfway, he went ‘the full racist.’

    What do we expect from a guy who thinks that the Constitution includes the words, “life, liberty, freedom and the pursuit of happiness?”

    Rush is just like the talking heads on Fox News. They say, “Wow, people are angry.” Their viewers hear this and they go out and try their best to make Fox proud by being angry. The next day, Fox shows these people being angry, and uses it to back up their original assertion.

    Just wait until they realize that there’s no turning back. Once you’ve created the monster, you’ve pretty much got to let him pillage the countryside until someone burns a castle down around him.
