Is Rush Limbaugh a racist? You betcha!

We hardly need any more proof that Dear Leader Rush is a racist, a calculated racist who knows how to push the right buttons with his followers, but sometimes it's just so blatant that you can't let it pass without comment. Andrew Sullivan posts this image and text from Limbaugh's website:

This guy is an utter wrecking ball all by himself on the world stage to the point now of getting embarrassing.  This presidency of Obama's, it doesn't take much to irritate the left. Try this: "Barack Obama's presidency is graffiti on the walls of American history." That's what his administration is. No more than graffiti on the walls of American history. We have a juvenile delinquent for a president who has ruined so much public and private property, not even his gang is making much of an effort here to protect him. It's an utter disaster.

Andrew highlights the "racial dog whistles," the racist code words that, in this case, aren't remotely subtle: "graffiti," "juvenile delinquent," "gang" (all of which Rush and his ilk associate with being black, or perhaps also Hispanic).

It isn't worth responding to such bigotry, which is all-too-common from Rush and his right-wing ilk. It is worth noting, however, that it is being spewed not by some no-name fringe figure but by a leader of the conservative "movement," by a driving force in the Republican Party.

You don't think race plays a dominant role in the right's assault on Obama? Get your head out of your ass and pay attention. It's all out in the open.

  • Yeah, I remember how much Rush hated Bill Clinton, because Clinton was also black.

    Even back in the 40's conservatives hated Franklin Roosevelt for being black.

  • Obviously, he hated Clinton, too, just as Republicans hated FDR. The different now is that his hatred is also deeply racist.

    Your point makes no sense.

  • ush is there to tap into the might of human nastiness and for profit. Of course he's not going to shy away from using that ugliest of sentiments. Who cares if he actually hates Obama for being black? He gets rich from those who do. Perhaps our guest protests too much. If not, others certainly do and cover it up with faux outrage and call any mention of the obvious "playing the race card." Perhaps, as the schoolyard saying goes - he who smelt it, dealt it.

    But as to Rush -- he's the guy who called Ray Nagan "Nager" - I heard him - so since that pig Limbaugh dealt the card, I'm playing the card.

  • I think Rush is like a big over grown racist kid!!! The more attention you give him the more he will keep going. We should just ignore his ignorance so he won't have anyting to debate or comment on.He's ignorant!
