Today during his show Rush launched into a racist tirade against Black People.

Limbaugh played a clip of Romney's speech touting free enterprise noting the cool reception from the audience and then trots out the old racist stereotypes to explain it to his listeners.

RUSH: Not to this group. That's not what they want to hear. This group wants to hear about tax increases and bigger government to take care of people. They don't want to hear about self-reliance; they don't want to hear about free enterprise. Free enterprise means you've gotta do it yourself. Free enterprise means it's up to you. Free enterprise means you're on your own. This group doesn't want to hear that. I don't think Romney got a single vote in here today.
Limbaugh then mplies that Blacks won't vote for Romney because he's White, not because his policy ideas are awful, especially for the disadvantaged.  
RUSH: Obama brings out the Selma twang when he heads in there to the NAALCP. And Hillary. (impression) "I ain't no ways tiiiired." Then they stand up and they give Hillary a cheer, and Obama says things like (impression), "Well, my grandfather came down here with the po'." They scream, "Right on, dude!" And they stand up for a standing ovation! Romney goes in there today, and he sounded like Snow White with Testicles. That's not what this bunch wants to hear.

Finally Rush implies that the NAACP doesn't even understand the issues surrounding the A.C.A. or the law's components.

RUSH: Look... Okay, give 'em the benefit of the doubt. They don't know what's in it. They don't care what's in it. All they know is it's Obama's plan, and here comes Snow White with Testicles in there ripping it to shreds, and so they're booing him. Is that it? (interruption) Okay.  Well, somebody needs to tell 'em after they boo, "Oh, so you want to pay a penalty for not having health insurance? Oh, so you want your taxes to be higher than they've ever been just to have health insurance? Is that what you want?"
From Politico:
Rush Limbaugh: Mitt Romney booed at NAACP because white


Rush Limbaugh said Mitt Romney’s speech Wednesday to the NAACP fell flat because it was “over these people’s heads” and that the group booed the Republican candidate, who “sounded like Snow White with testicles,” simply because he’s white.

Limbaugh portrayed the crowd at the NAACP’s annual convention in Houston as ignorant of what was good for them and susceptible to pandering from Obama and other Democratic politicians.
Rush is stoking up the racist stereotypes of his listeners so they will atribute Romney's getting booed to racism by Blacks and not honest disagreement over policies that are well understood. In doing so Rush tries to paint Blacks as inherently lazy and ignorant. I can't express how inaccurate and how offensive those stereotypes are.

Rush is Reprehensible! He needs to be called out over these comments every bit as much as he was over his slut tirade against women.

Limbaugh: NAACP booed ‘simply because Romney’s white’

By David Edwards

“He’s confident they’ll boo Romney simply because Romney’s white,” the conservative icon opined.

“So Romney takes advantage of the occasion. He goes there and makes a speech that is really, I think, is over these people’s heads, in the sense that his audience was much larger than just inside the conventional hall.”

In fact, the NAACP audience responded to Romney with polite applause until he promised to repeal the president’s health care reform law.

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.
