 Rush Limbaugh's back with a new batch of alleged claims that Obama and the Democrats are "racists" and that other sort of garbage he spews out 3 hours a day for 15 hours a week 5 days a week.  He has had a history of documented racism and sexism. He is also known for Oxycontin smuggling and doctor shopping.

 Mr. Bouncy Bouncy (and his hate merchanting cohorts) are INTENTIONALLY stoking fears on people to incite riots and other violent nonsense. Limbaugh has made claims that Obama is an "angry Black man," "Radical," and other sort of shit like that. I believe El Rushbo is deranged and should be in a mental institution (and away from his precious Oxycontins), not behind the mic.

Sadly, I (like some Progressive Liberals) have some Dittohead relatives/friends/family members that hang on every last word of his like it's the Gospel, or the [Dittohead] Bible. I know that even some ex-Dittoheads (former Limbaugh worshippers) are now turned off by his nasty and hate-spewing rhetoric.

 If you want any further proof that The Drugster is a senile racist, look no further than from an October 2009 piece from Media Matters, during in which time that Boss Limbaugh was trying to own the Rams.

Limbaugh's "colorblind" history of racially charged comments


Limbaugh claims '08 Dem primary "was full of nothing but racism and bigotry"

From the January 12 broadcast of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show:

Washington Examiner's ridiculous headline: "Obama disses white guys"
Apparently the Washington Examiner didn't want to be left behind in the right-wing race to the bottom in distorting President Obama's appeal to supporters for the 2010 election, so this morning the paper sent out this lovely bit of work:

That's right, the Examiner morphed Obama's comments about turning out "young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008" into a "diss" of "white guys." As Simon Maloy and Matt Gertz have pointed out, Obama was simply discussing turning out his base voters - something any politician who has ever won a race knows to do. The mental gymnastics involved in making this leap would easily qualify for the next Olympics, but sadly the Examiner is just following in the footsteps of its conservative comrades-in-arms.

For the second day in a row, Rush Limbaugh fixated on a controversial Arizona immigration law and President Obama's campaign video calling for Democrats to mobilize African-American, Latino, women, and young voters in the upcoming midterm elections. Today, Rush accused Obama of "leading a charge" against Arizona and a "personal jihad" against Gov. Jan Brewer. Later in the show, Rush said that it made "perfect sense" that Obama would be "taking the side of the lawless," the "drug coyotes" and the "smugglers." Limbaugh also claimed that Democrats were guilty of hypocrisy for calling the immigration law "an outrageous usurpation of power" while simultaneously "moving to take away our salt" -- a bogus claim we debunked last week. Along these lines, Rush also accused Obama of "playing the race card" for opposing the Arizona law and for ignoring other races in his campaign video. This just one day after Rush called the Obama administration a "racist" "regime." Limbaugh also dusted off some Rev. Wright clips and declared Wright "one of the foremost influences on President Obama's life."

Huffington Post: Washington Examiner has front-page article "Obama Disses White People"

Limbaugh also spent some time on today's Senate hearings into Goldman Sachs' mortgage securities business in the run-up to the financial crisis, calling Sen. Carl Levin "the Democrats' top smear guy" and stating that "nothing Carl Levin says can be trusted." Citing the release of emails from Goldman Sachs executives, Limbaugh suggested that Levin's emails should be released to the public. Rush also accused Democrats of creating "phony anger over class envy" by investigating Goldman Sachs and the role of investment banks in the economic crisis. After suggesting that Warren Buffett was one of "Obama's boys," Rush said that Obama might be one of George Soros' "boys."

Limbaugh: The left calls Arizona immigration law an "outrageous usurpation of power" while they're "moving to take away our salt"

From the April 27 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show:

Remember when Kanye West said George W. Bush "doesn't care about black people"?  Of course you do; it was kind of a big deal.  Such a big deal that when then-Senator Barack Obama appeared on ABC's This Week a few days later, he was asked about it.  There was an avalanche of media coverage, including predictable outrage from conservative publications. A New York Post headline blared "WHERE DOES KANYE WEST GET OFF," while National Review sneered "'Racism!' They Charged - When don't they?"  Jonah Goldberg blasted West's "self-indulgent diatribe" and insisted "He should be ashamed."  Goldberg went so far as to argue that even if West was right, he should have kept his mouth shut: "Assume for the sake of argument that West's rant was accurate. Was this really the time to say so?"

Conservatives were certainly not alone in rebuking West; many liberals did so as well.  To pick just one example, Richard Cohen -- the ostensibly liberal Washington Post columnist who supports torture and opposes affirmative action -- leapt to Bush's defense.

Now, Rush Limbaugh isn't a rap star like Kanye West -- but he is one of the most influential leaders of the conservative movement and the Republican party.  And The Note quoted him calling the president a racist as casually as it would have had quoted him saying "I find the president's fiscal policies lamentable."

Fox News Website Race Baiting Headline: "Did Obama Play The RACE CARD?"
Lest there be no doubt as to Fox News playing to its Jim Crow fan base, we have both the Fox News website and a lede on Fox Nation suggesting President Obama, in seeking support in the upcoming elections from minorities, women, and young people, is "playing the race card." The Fox Nation thread, which links to the video of Obama’s comment, solicits the usual vile racist commentary straight out of the KKK. The Fox News headline, titled "In Launching Vote 2000, Did Obama Play the RACE CARD?" links to a Fox News article titled "Obama Jumps Into 2010 Race With Appeal to Latinos, African-Americans, Women and Youth." The article states that Obama has left white middle aged males (a group that has discriminated against historically – not!) "in the rear view mirror." Nowhere is there any mention of the "race card." But who cares about accuracy when there's a juicy, Fox media, anti-Obama propaganda theme being presented? As News Hounds Ellen reported, Drudge initiated the idea and Fox is now running with it as shown by America Live's Megyn Kelly's asking the same question. And why would readers of the Fox News website bother to read the actual article when the lede message tells them all they need to know? "Fair and balanced" Fox propaganda reinforcement at its finest!

One is not surprised to see the usual race baiting material in Fox Nation, a place for "real (white) Americans" to express their hatred and death wishes for the first African American President of the US as well as hatred and contempt for African Americans. But the Fox News website is, for the most part, fairly non partisan. Looks like the racism of Fox Nation has seeped over into Fox News which is supposed to be "fair and balanced." But only in the bizarro world of Fox News, where white is now black, is the effort to get out the votes from a constituency seen as "playing the race card." Looks like Fox News is playing the race card for its audience who see color in the starkest terms of black and white. But then again, big ratings winner Glenn Beck says Obama is a racist so it’s all good!!!

Limbaugh calls Obama administration a "racist" "regime"
From the April 26 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show:

Comedian Rush Limbaugh: Obama's nomination "goes back to the fact that nobody had the guts to stand up and say no to a black guy"

SUMMARY: Rush Limbaugh said that "it is striking how unqualified [Sen. Barack] Obama is and, and how this whole thing came about with, within the Democrat Party. I think it really goes back to the fact that nobody had the guts to stand up and say no to a black guy." Limbaugh went on to say: "I think this is a classic illustration here where affirmative action has reared its ugly head against them.

On the August 19 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh said that "it is striking how unqualified [Sen. Barack] Obama is and, and how this whole thing came about with, within the Democrat [sic] Party. I think it really goes back to the fact that nobody had the guts to stand up and say no to a black guy." Limbaugh went on to say: "I think this is a classic illustration here where affirmative action has reared its ugly head against them. It's the reverse of it. They've, they've ended up nominating and placing at the top of their ticket somebody who's not qualified, who has not earned it." Limbaugh added: "It's perfect affirmative action. And because of all this guilt and the historic nature of things, nobody had the guts to say, well, wait a minute, do we really want to do this?"

Limbaugh handicapped races in new Survivor series, suggested "African-American tribe" worst swimmers, Hispanics "will do things other people won't do"
On the August 23 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio program, Rush Limbaugh suggested that the competition in a new season of CBS' reality TV program Survivor, in which contestants are reportedly divided into competing "tribes" by ethnicity, "is not going to be fair if there's a lot of water events." In support of this assertion, he cited a March 2 HealthDay article reporting that "young blacks -- especially males -- are much more likely to drown in pools than whites."

During the program, Limbaugh suggested that "people at CBS" are "scratch[ing] their heads" and asking whether "the swimming portion" of the new Survivor competition is "going to be fair." When pressed by an African-American caller to identify "[w]hich team ... would be the worst swimmers and why," Limbaugh stated that "the white tribe would be the best swimmers" based on the performance of white athletes at "the Olympics." After apparently disconnecting or cutting the volume level of the caller, Limbaugh said: "[Y]ou're saying I'm being racist because I'm saying blacks can't swim." He further protested: "I mentioned the swimming comment only because it's not going to be fair if there is a lot of water competition in this. It just isn't. It is not a racial or racist comment at all."

Boss Limpballs's racism against Survivor from 2006

This is all evidence that Boss Limbaugh and his ilk (Chalky Beck, Bill O'Falafel, Whiner Savage, Coultergeist, Hannity the Manatee, Michelle Maglagang Stalkin, Mark Rotten Levin, etc...) are a bunch of anti-American scumbag racists (and sexists).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
