Let's get one thing straight. I am currently disgusted with both major parties and candidates and will not be voting for either of them. The choice of Mr. NDAA Indefinite Military Detention and/or Assassination of US Citizens or Mr. Send Your Jobs to China is one I refuse to make (Romney also favors the fascist NDAA.) But this is offensive, and I am duty-bound to report what I am hearing on a show which no doubt most people here never touch with a ten foot pole, so there is no way you would know about it.
This is the sound cut Rush Limbaugh plays over and over in his "Obama equals welfare people" campaign, which never fails to give the racists on the show a good shit laugh at how "those people" (yes, Limbaugh actually uses the words "those people") talk and think. Why isn't he being slammed?
They play it over and over, yuk yuk and pass me a chaw of tobacky, won't ya?
No doubt Limbuagh would say "it isn't racist, it's a real tape of a real person, those libs see racism everywhere!" To this I say, this kind of racism is like porn. If you are sitting with your young kids and the TV suddenly flashes it, an embarrassed silence overtakes the room. If I am in my home with company including my black friends (I'm not politically correct, I still just say "black" and so do they,) I would feel my face turn red at this coming on in the context in which Limbaugh repeatedly uses it.
Like porn, you know it when you see it.
This is after Limbaugh, on the occasion of the recent passing of singer Andy Williams, played a version of "Born Free" which included the sound of jungle animal noises and gunfire in the background. After the song Limbaugh stage whispered: "Oh by the way that's Detroit in the background."
So as long as I may be one of the few people here who monitors Rush Limbaugh, what is frightening is his orders seem to be to mainstream the idea that an economic collapse is coming, of course with special instructions on the tag to set up Obama for the blame. This is nonsense of course. Obama as part of the two-party duopoly bears his share of the blame, but the real blame will reside with the banksters and the Federal Reserve which control both parties, Obama included. It has been discovered as a result of Bernie Sanders.' and Ron Paul's legislation last year that the Fed has issued another $16 trillion in bail-outs to banks, some of them not even American.
That's my report. I've checked out of the two major parties, but I haven't checked out of opposing bigotry and racism when I see it. As far as I'm concerned this is all part of divide and conquer. In the meantime the banksters get away.
