Limbaugh on Sonia Sotomayor's nomination to the Supreme Court: "So, here you have a racist. You might want to soften that and you might wanna say a reverse racist. And the libs of course say that minorities cannot be racists because they don't have the power to implement their racism. Well, those days are gone because reverse racists certainly do have the power to implement their power. Obama is the greatest living example of a reverse racist and now he's appointed one."
Just for shits and grins, let's examine a few of Rush Limbaugh's bon mots on race, shall we?
"I mean, let's face it, we didn't have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I'm not saying we should bring it back; I'm just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark."
"You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray. We miss you, James. Godspeed."
"Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?"
"Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."
"The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies."
"They're (black people) 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?"
"Take that bone out of your nose and call me back (to an African American female caller)."
So the same opiated sack of porkfarts who called Obama a "Halfrican" and whose racial bigotry is etched into the public record now wants to be taken seriously as he points fingers at black people?
Inevitably, someone's going to give me the standard operating raft of shit about how we should ignore Rush Limbaugh so he goes away, but I would sooner ignore a melanoma in the hopes it would disappear by itself. This gasbag is feeding a potent strain of hatred and division among his followers, and it only takes one.
