Al Sharpton accuses Limbaugh of anti-Chinese racism; wants FCC to crack down
Examiner ^ | January 21, 2011 | Marc Schenker

Posted on 01/21/2011 4:09:32 AM PST by Suvroc10

Al Sharpton accuses Limbaugh of anti-Chinese racism; wants FCC to crack down. Al Sharpton is exploiting another non-story by jumping all over Rush Limbaugh’s imitation of Chinese (communist) President Hu Jintao. On a portion of yesterday’s Rush Limbaugh program, the radio host made the point that he was watching the speech that Jintao made at the White House during his recent visit, yet no one had the courtesy to translate on the channel he was watching. Limbaugh added that this was unusual because a translator normally speaks at the same time a foreign leader is giving a speech. So, to demonstrate the unintelligibility of Jintao’s words, Limbaugh took a few seconds to imitate what he heard—what any non-Chinese-speaking individual would hear. Predictably, liberal rabble-rousers like Sharpton are capitalizing on this non-story by accusing Limbaugh of racially mocking the communist president and even demanding that the FCC step in.

Liberals are only interested in silencing their critics.

like I said before - why is it ok for SNL, yet the media cries foul when Rush parodies?

Translators translate written documents, INTERPRETERS interpret speech into another language. I’m weary of illiterate journalists.

I wonder if he felt the same about Rosie O’s “ching chang chong” comments.

Hell, Sharpton needs closed captioning since he does not speak English.

Liberals should do what they've been preaching for years -- if you don't like what's on tv (or the radio), JUST TURN IT OFF!!!

Liberals have no conception of being hypocritical.... It's like the part of their brain that would recognize they're being hypocritical doesn't exist.

Wasn’t Sharpton and his bullhorn responsible for causing a riot that led to the death of Korean storeowners who had the audacity to run a store in Harlem?

I wouldn't worry too much about the "Reverend" Al's complaint to the FCC, unless they have someone who can translate "Ebonics!"

Is that raaaaacist? lol

I hope Sean Hannity has seen the light with regard to Al Sharpton. I always wondered why he gave that racist POS any airtime whatsoever. Let’s hope that’s the end of it.

Al hasn’t had success lately.....he’ll be heading to the Bronx Zoo next week because the penguins have been complaining no one’s been shoveling their pens. Don’t forget your bullhorn Al.

When any thing or anyone makes fun of conservatives it is called amusing.
When any “progressive” is macked it is called hate speech.

Al will get my attention when he can point out Rush’s responsibility for the deaths of innocent citizens as a result of whipping up a crowd of rioters.

The umpteenth cry of “racism” from Al Sharpton and the Left.

I’m eating some “racism” in my cornflakes this morning. For dinner, I think I will have a “racist” steak on the grill with some “racist” fried potatoes wedges.

Whenever these people cry “racism,” I quit listening. Of course I never listened to them anyway.

I’m not so sure that Sean has total control over who his guests are. He does have a producer who calls the shots.

One of the women of the View did the same thing a few years back (could have even been that lesbian Rosie).

Our local DJ played the clip of it yesterday morning and it went on forever. She sounded worse than Rush and they all had a grand laugh.

I don't recall andyone asking to get them shut down....*cough* yeah, right *cough*

You are totally ignorant how programs work. I suggest you do a fact checker before you start selling those bridges. Sounds like you bought a few yourself.

I can’t believe how uniformed some on this forum are.

Producers vary in influence depending on the magnitude of the on air talent. For instance, Rush Limbaugh runs his own show. Producers run when Rush suggests. I’ll bet Sean has enormous influence over the content and guests.

You are so right on this and debating with those who disagree (Catsrus) is like urinating into the wind...fagetaboutit!

Dear Mr. Shapton,

I thought Asians were a non-protected PC class?

Or at least that is what I have been hearing from the left everytime they viciously attack a conservative who happens to be of Asian ancestry.

What was it that someon from the PC race basiting industry said that Asians were just as bad as caucasians?

Sincerely,

An Asian-Caucasian-American
