    Re: Report: Rush Limbaugh taken to Hawaii hospital

    I'm amazed how many times that same pathetic "10 quote" list gets posted EVERY....SINGLE....TIME Rush becomes a topic. I've not even bothered countering it anymore because in 3 months when another Rush thing happens people will swarm out going "racist, racist! See, 10 quotes from some website i just read and I never thought to take the time to look any deeper at it".

    At least the website took away the two completely, 100%, factually incorrect ones that were lies made up and put in a bo ok that people on the left continually liked to use to insult Rush.

    The McNabb comments weren't racist. Controversial, racial focused in tone, yes. Racist, no.

    The bone in nose comment was from over 30 years ago. I'm sorry, but at this point I'm not going to hold something someone said in their 20's and 30's more than 3 decades ago proof that they're "X" today. If Fred Phelps at one point 30 years ago called a guy that was homosexual his "friend" it wouldn't suddenly make him less of a homophobic bigot today. Rush saying something racist 30 years ago, and since apologizing for it, doesn't magically make him racist today.

    The bloods and crips comment is a typical, pathetic attempt at a liberal think tank to take something out of context which then a highly partisan blog reports and mindlessly hyper partisan liberals spew. The comment came about in the context of a discussion talking about the NFL cracking down on gang signs and other gang related things done by their players and Rush commenting on his percieved increased physicality, cheap shots, and actions after plays making many seem thuggish. OMG! many football players are black, and many bloods and crips are black, and Rush said the NFL looks like bloods and crips. IT MUST BE RACIST



    Its ****ing idiotic. At this point I'd dare say that the vast majority of legitimately racially controversial statements he makes at this poitn too are less his actual beliefs and more attempts to stir up controversy and tweak the other side....making him, as Tucker pointed out, a jackass but not a racist.

    I never knew the NFL had a problem with gang signs and "other gang related things". Apparently it all stems from Paul Pierce being fined $25,000 for a sign he made in an NBA game. All I have found is that they (The NFL) were investigating footage for gang signs. I can't seem to find any punishments levied in this supposed "cracking down" on gang signs. The stories I read say they handle it privately by talking to the player and team. It really seems to me to be a PR stunt to uphold the family image of the league.

    I would argue that hockey has more cheap shots and unnecessary violence. Football doesn't have "enforcers" whose primary job is to start fights and perform cheap shots. Yet we would have to laugh if hockey players were called Bloods and Crips because they are white. It's not a coincidence that the NFL is predominantly black and he used the comparison that he did. Short of Albert Haynesworth's actions with kicking a helmetless player while down, Night Train Lane was much more violent than anything you see today.

    While Rush may not say things that place white people as superior to other races, he will discuss racial issues in an insensitive manner. Some speculate that he may do this in a race baiting manner. I liken it to Al Sharpton. Al Sharpton doesn't claim that blacks are superior to whites, yet people call him a racist a lot. It's a side effect of using race to achieve an alternate agenda.

    Ok, my mistake, I have not read all of this thread. I hate it when people do this in threads I subscribed to from the beginning.
    It was simply the first link which showed up, but there is plenty more.
    #2 is demonstratively NOT racist. Most of the others are not well sources NOR do they contain proper context -- something you would know if you had been reading this thread. Now, while some people think context does not matter, most educated, critical people DO realize that context is important. Now, provide it. If he is a racist, I will join in the criticism. However, just saying he is a racist and/or providing poorly sourced lists does not cut it.
    I suppose I'll have to read back, but I don't see how #2 is not racist, the context of the quote is given in the provided link. I do think context is important, no need to make suggestive remarks about my educational background, but the sheer amount of racist remarks which are passed off a "humour" or not really being "racist" in context make me question the intellectual honesty of his defenders and wonder if they really know the cultural background which supports racism.

    It could not reaonably be held against him if this was an isolated incidence which happened a long time ago, but as it is, it adds to show the continuity of racist remarks which one could describe as a characteristic of his speeches.

    So, racist speech made to wind listeners up isn't really racist?
    Well, I won't hire you to defend me if I ever found myself in court...

    Well, it's nice to see I somehow managed to provide a source of amusement for you, but I don't recall ever having commented on Lott, and what does this have to do with this thread anyway?

    Just shows the hypocrisy. When the GOP say anything slightly off they are racist but the dems can say anything and are never called racist.

    To top it off, Rush's comment that McNabb was overrated was a hit on THE PRESS.

    He was making the point that the press was overhyping him... when the facts didn't stack up. McNabb was overrated, and by whom? The press... those doing the rating and writing and talking.

    It's what... 8-years since then... and libs still can't get the most basic facts right.
