    It was simply the first link which showed up, but there is plenty more.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...
    I still don't see how that comment is racist. He is making commentary and analysis that one of the reasons the Dems have made such a play on Darfur is due to the race of the people being victimized and the fact that Dems in the US rely on the Black vote. Yes, racial, but not racist. I don't agree with his analysis entirely and I do support Gov. Richardson's advocacy of the Darfur cause (and I am an Independent Conservative).

    However, that site complains about the Communist angle more than anything else and Communist support for Mandela and the ANC is well documented.

    Again, I don't see any racism in that comment. Merely analysis of the racial politics going into the politics of Darfur. Or, can't we make honest analysis along those lines anymore?

    But you have several threads about these racist dems already, this one is dedicated to Rush, who is of coure not racist, one needs to have been a regular listener for at least 6 years to be able to understand that what looks like racist remarks isn't really racist - anyone who suggests otherwise is taking quotes out of context.

    Reed is an old dude. Lots of older people still use the word, "Negro". His statements were not made in a mean spirited manner. In fact, he was only stating the obvious. Don't forget, Obama is part white, ya'll.

    Rush played "Barrack the Magic Negro" yesterday on his show. Why no outrage against that crypto racist?

    It's neither honest nor an analysis.

    Let's have a look at the piece, it's as good an example as any to show the dishonest spin of his demagoguery.
    I am surprised you call this "commentary and analysis", an analysis requires material to be analysed - there isn't any. It's a brief exchange with a caller who wonders about the liberal hypocrisy of wanting to pull out of Iraq but go into Darfur (this is August 2007), the answer is merely partisan speculation about the dems hypocritical motives, then he moves on from Darfur to going into South-Africa to topple the white government and support Mandela who was supported by communists.

    In more detail:
    The first assertion he makes about the Dems: "They want to get us out of Iraq, but they can’t wait to get us into Darfur." Then he goes on to suggest that there are two reasons for proposing to go into Dafur. One of them, according to Rush, is that "they" are black and the Dems need the black voting block in the US.
    Hmm. Makes it look as if the Iraq war and "to go to Darfur" are comparable policies and actions, and that it's illogical to object to one but campaign for the other. The explanation offered is Dems depend on the black voting block at home, and they not only aim to do so by proposing "to go into Darfur", but already did so by the US going into SA, getting rid of the white gov and supporting a black communist sponsored leader (lol, yes we all know most dems and blacks are commies).

    This entire rant is absurd.
    1) "go into Darfur" meant deployment of the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Peacekeeping force, not a US led invasion - hardly comparable to Iraq.
    2) in your own words, after reading the Rush thing, "the Dems have made such a play on Darfur". Well, it was hardly a Dem partisan issue: Colin Powell declared the conflict a "genocide" in 2004, Bush called for international troops to be doubled in 2006, and resolution 07-SR276 calling for the deployment of a peacekeeping mission on Jul 19, 2007, was agreed by the US Senate unanimously.
    None of these pertinent facts were referenced by Rush in any way, they do resolve the seeming contradiction and make the motive Rush is speculating about not a plausible one.
    3) now the rest is so far-fetched, I won't go into factual details but look at the rhetoric: Rush established that one reason the Dems oppose interference in the ME, but campaign for the same in Africa, is to secure the black vote in the US, it is a racial issue ("skin colour"). Now it's only a small step to point at "go into South Africa", to "get rid of the white government", then into Ethiopia to "do the same thing".
    Bizarre, what exactly is he suggesting? Here's another clue: not only do you get rid of the white gov, you also "stand behind" the black incoming leader, who is supported by communist leaders and was "bankrolled by communists".

    Now consider his audience: predominantly white conservatives who are/were afraid of communism, despise the 'far-left' in the Dem party and disapprove of leftist policies like AA, because it's "racist" - liberals promote this "racism" against whites, because this way they control black voters. Supporting a black communist backed leader in Africa to get rid of a white government seems like a logical thing to do for the Dems by now, doesn't it?

    Rush's 'commentary' is devisive and reinforces stereotypes by appealing to irrational fear - the bi-partisan initiative against the Darfur genocide becomes a mere accessory to establishing a race issue and devision, in order to denigrate political opponents and reinforce stereotypes by appealing to fear and prejudice. Sterotypes used are "the hypocritical liberal" who prioritises his own interest and political gain, who does not support the war against radical terrorists who attack the US, but prefers to topple white governments in Africa; and we find the matching cliche of the black leader of the uprising who is backed by communists, and by 'leftists' such as the Dems.

    I don't give anybody a free pass. I do know the difference between mean spirited rhetoric and non-mean spirited rhetoric.

    Besides Obama has forgiven him for his inappropriate remark.

    What do you expect? Reid has the Health rip off almost done, and you expect Obama to be genuine about what his political considerations are?
