Rush Limbaugh's 10 Most Racist Quotes

You Can see why the Ranger loves this guy.

1. 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.

2. You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed.

3. Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?

4. Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela — who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing.

5. 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.

6. The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.

7. They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?

8. Take that bone out of your nose and call me back(to an African American female caller).

9. I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They’re interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there’s a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he really didn’t deserve.

10. Limbaugh attacks on Obama. Limbaugh has called Obama a ‘halfrican American’ has said that Obama was not black but Arab because Kenya is an Arab region, even though Arabs are less than one percent of Kenya. Since mainstream America has become more accepting of African-Americans, Limbaugh has decided to play against its new racial fears, Arabs and Muslims. Despite the fact Obama graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law school, Limbaugh has called him an ‘affirmative action candidate.’ Limbaugh even has repeatedly played a song on his radio show ‘Barack the Magic Negro’ using an antiquated Jim Crow era term for black a man who many Americans are supporting for president. Way to go Rush.

So Rush Limbaugh has managed to make racist attacks on four of the most admired and respected people of African descent in the past one hundred years, in Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Colin Powell and Barack Obama. He has called for the assassin of Martin Luther King to be given a medal, and said slavery was a good thing. He has claimed that Joe the Plumber, who isn’t even a plumber is more important in this election than Colin Powell, a decorated military veteran who has served honorably in three administrations. How can the Republican party stand by this man and let their candidates appear on his show? Rush Limbaugh’s comments are so racist, they’re funny, in a Borat, Archie Bunker kind of way. What is not funny is the millions of dittoheads who listen to him, who take in and re-spout all the racist rhetoric that he spits. Limbaugh’s statements are echoed in the racist, angry Palin/McCain supporters who shout ‘kill him,’ ‘terrorist,’ ‘communist,’ ‘traitor,’ ’socialist’ and ‘off with his head.’

Boy they really get mad when you call their racist, boy loving drug addict.

Count Istvan said...

BTW Moron's link goes to a blog where they use the age old "taken out of context" excuse for all of Rush's racism. Nice try though.

"Out of context." Yeah. Right. Someone tell me how you take #7 or #8 "out of context" and make it any different than what it was "in" context.

And as for "12% of the population - who cares"? While Rushbo commands a sizable salary, it in no way equates to the percentage of the population that actually listens to his drivel. It's much more a reflection of his advertising revenue than of his actual influence. So one might well and truly return another "Who cares?" right over the net.

Oh, by the way, TBK? Your hero is a drug addict and a bigot.

ahh the hate from the left has reared an ugly head. In this case it is ET, spilling his hatred for someone that he would do anything to silence, even if it meant getting rid of free speech.

Count Istvan said...

ET do you want Rush in jail for his comments? And should we bother giving Idiot B. Moron a biology lesson?

et said...

Who's "getting rid of free speech," TBK? I mean...Count is allowing you to spew here. Whereas you're the one saying that he shouldn't make the observations he did. Hypocrite, much?

As for biology, Count, let's skip the lesson. We don't want TBK breeding, now do we?

et said...

Also, Count, did you notice how TBK utterly failed to explain how #7 or #8 could be taken "out of context"?

No wonder he thinks I dislike free speech. He can barely speak it himself! And he doesn't know how to use "a href" tags either, apparently. What a fricking genius.

Count Istvan said...

Uh neither do I :( Anyway yeah taken out of context is the favorite alibi for right wingers.
