    Rush Limbaugh in His Own Words

    US News | Sun, Oct 18, 2009 at 3:29:37 pm PDT

    As the apologists all over the right wing blogs continue to focus on one or two disputed quotes, here’s a lengthy collection of racist and/or race-baiting quotes from Saint Rush Limbaugh — all of them verified, cited and attributed:

    On the Nobel Peace Prize: “I think Obama’s the second Kenyan to win.”

    “We are being told that we have to hope [Obama] succeeds, that we have to bend over, grab the ankles … because his father was black.”

    “I do believe” Obama is an “angry black guy.”

    “[I]n Obama’s America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering.”

    “Obama’s entire economic program is reparations.”

    Obama is “more African in his roots than he is American” and is “behaving like an African colonial despot.”

    Obama is “Halfrican-American.”

    “Obama has disowned his white half … he’s decided he’s got to go all in on the black side.”

    Sotomayor “a reverse racist” appointed by Obama, “the greatest living example of a reverse racist.”

    Obama “wants us to have the same health care and plan that he had in Kenya” and “wants to be the black FDR.”

    Latching onto LA Times op-ed, Limbaugh sings “Barack, The Magic Negro.”

    “God does not have a birth certificate. Neither does Obama”; Obama “has yet to prove he’s a citizen.”

    Limbaugh on Gates controversy: “Here you have a black president trying to destroy a white policeman.”

    Limbaugh suggests Obama would not have acted on Somali pirates if he’d known they were “actually young, black Muslim teenagers.”

    Limbaugh suggests Democrats, media believe “you can’t criticize the little black man-child.”

    “The government’s been taking care of [young blacks] their whole lives.”

    “The days of [minorities] not having any power are over, and they are angry.”

    “[M]inorities never do anything for which they have to apologize.”

    Limbaugh: “The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well.”

    Limbaugh says “NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips.”

    Limbaugh declares basketball “the favorite sport of gangs.”

    Limbaugh invented “racial component” to Hackett’s decision to withdraw from Ohio primary race.

    Limbaugh on Survivor series: “African-American tribe” worst swimmers, Hispanics “will do things other people won’t do.”

    Limbaugh suggested Colin Powell only supported Obama because of race.

    Limbaugh: Gates is an “angry racist.”

    Limbaugh called illegal immigrants an “invasive species.”

    Limbaugh repeatedly calls Native Americans “Injuns.”

    Limbaugh says Democrats’ interest in Darfur is securing black “voting bloc.”

    Limbaugh says that if “feminazis” had remembered to oppose “affirmative action for black guys … they wouldn’t face the situation they face today.”

    No, it was at one time, but it has become a liberal blog over the past few years. I started reading this blog many years ago, so don't tell me that it is still right wing oriented.

    “I do believe” Obama is an “angry black guy.”

    Yeah, that's stinging indictment.... really racist.

    Sad.

    Great, now provide the context in which all of those were said. One short sentence means nothing unless you have the context in which it is said.

    Taking things out of context is a common tactic of anyone trying to discredit or "prove" that someone said something in a way which is not meant to be taken as. This thread has already proved that.

    btw...

    How is "On the Nobel Peace Prize: “I think Obama’s the second Kenyan to win.”" even remotely racist?

    Notice how none of the alleged racist comments are listed, not 1. Notice how all they can list is one disconnected comment about Michael J. Fox, with no details etc.

    I don't listen to his show so no I don't remember. Does thsi have anything at all to do with him being called a racist? NO.

    Sorry you are going to have to do WAY ****ing better than that.

    None of those in or out of context are inherently racist. Insensitive is about as strong a language as you could use for any of those.

    Try again.

    A liberal blog? Would that be in the same way that Newt Gingrich is now a liberal (per the winger blogs) because he endorsed the GOP candidate in NY-23?


    Of course he's on the right. Even the right say he's on the right, except they also say they hate him :


    I Win!

    Blogosphere | Fri, Sep 25, 2009 at 1:39:36 pm PDT

    Looks like I’ve replaced Andrew Sullivan as the most hated blogger, which is quite an accomplishment. I’d like to thank the wonderful folks who voted me the sixth most despised “right wing” figure, equally as repulsive as Pat “Hitler wasn’t so bad” Buchanan, and much more disgusting than Ron Paul, Mark Sanford, or Pat Robertson: Right-Of-Center Bloggers Select Their Least Favorite People On The Right.

    It will be difficult, but I’ll do my best to live up to this honor.

    The wingosphere does not look kindly on those on their 'team' who calls out the bullpucky.

    You will have to go to the link and follow that to the source. It's a bit of work, but not that much.
