Little Green Footballs attacking Rush Limbaugh re: comments on segregated busses.
Little Green Footballs ^ | 09/20/09 | Charles Johnson

Limbaugh: 'We Need Segregated Buses' Politics | Sun, Sep 20, 2009 at 11:06:51 am PDT

A lot of lefty blogs are calling for a boycott of Rush Limbaugh after he indulged in blatant, ugly race baiting. I’m not joining that call, because I don’t believe boycotts are a good thing, in general. People like Rush Limbaugh should be allowed to say this kind of stuff; it makes it easier to see what they’re really advocating, and who really supports it.

I searched, and found not a single right wing blog denouncing this vile rant. As far as I can tell, nobody on the right seems to think there’s anything with this.

Since I’m being excommunicated from the ranks of the faithful anyway, I’ll come out and say it: this is absolutely disgusting. Where was Michael Steele? What the hell is wrong with the right?

I haven't been on the site, with this exception in almost two years or longer. Mr. Johnson sounds like a typical liberal. Loved the comment that said something along the lines “sorry I don't posses enough white guilt” *L*

And here I thought LGF was on the right side of issues.

The traditionalist, pro-American side.

Rush was engaging in sarcasm. I know, I heard it first hand.

CALLER: Hi, Rush. Hey, I just was commenting on the Belleville incident with the kids on the bus. You’re right. They did report that last night as being racially motivated, but I just heard the news before your show started and the police chief over — I think he was a police chief, some law enforcement — there said that after further investigation of it would be not racially motivated. He said he should have been more professional before he commented on it and investigated it more before he decided and stated that it was racially motivated.

RUSH: Well, did he say why, in Obama’s America, that incident with the white kid getting beat up on the black school bus was not racially motivated?

CALLER: I didn’t hear him comment about that. No, sir.

RUSH: Because we’ve seen the videotape. Have you seen the videotape?

CALLER: Oh, yeah, sure.

RUSH: We can’t hear what’s being said.

CALLER: No.

RUSH: So we don’t know what obvious taunts this lone white student was dishing out to the whole bus.

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: We don’t know what obvious taunts.

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: Worse than the obvious verbal taunts, we all know the racism that was in the kid’s mind. I mean Newsweek magazine says he was born a racist. So you know the white kid is sitting there thinking N-word and all kinds of things being surrounded by these black students. They knew that. They knew that and so they just descended on the kid and beat him up. We’ve seen the videotape. What did the police chief investigate?

CALLER: He did not comment on anything other than he said more investigations shows that it was not racially motivated.

RUSH: I think the guy is wrong. I think not only was it racism, it’s justifiable racism.

CALLER: True.

RUSH: I mean, that’s the lesson that we’re being taught here today. Kid shouldn’t have been on the bus anyway.

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: We need segregated buses. It was invading of space and so forth. This is Obama’s America.

END RUSH ARCHIVE CLIP

Sweden Slashes Income Taxes to Promote Job Growth

September 19, 2009 Posted by John at 7:16 AM

We noted here that the United States has the most progressive income tax system in the developed world. That’s right—embarrassingly enough, more progressive than Sweden’s.

Actually, a generation of economic stagnation has taught the Swedes a lesson. They’ve learned that government does not produce wealth, and if they want more people to work, jobs have to pay better, after taxes. Sweden is therefore in the midst of a series of tax cuts aimed at preserving the long-term viability of its economy. Today’s headline: “Sweden slashes income tax further to boost jobs.”

It’s an interesting comparison: Sweden experimented with the nanny state, learned that it was devastating to the economic and moral health of its people, and is moving back toward individualism. Here in the U.S., we had the world’s most dynamic economy, and the lesson we took away from that—some of us, anyway—was that we were doing something wrong and needed to socialize everything. Curious.

"Have they run out of Muslin's to insult ? "

He ran out of Muslims long ago. He's since moved onto Christians, Catholics and he'll throw a jab at an observant Jew whenever he can. In short, anyone who doesn't worship at the altar of Secular Humanism, he has it out for.

This is why intolerant evo-atheists who turn on the Christian Right should be immediately purged from the conservative movement. First they come after us, but it's only a matter of time before they stab the conservative movement in the back as a whole. Better to let the libs have these phony conservatives than to allow them sabotage the conservative movement from within.

Took him off of my blogroll when it became apparent that he's gone off his meds or something. IIRC, he did have some good stuff exposing the professionally-aggrieved Palestinian wailers, and AP or UPI or somebody Photoshopping news pictures to make Israeli raid damage look worse than it was.

If he's just become another script-driven shill for the Big Government left, well then screw his act.

Oy vey.

Rush was being sarcastic. The left has no sense of humor.

They choose to jump all over a JOKE that actually does have some ironic roots, but they give a pass to the President's company ACORN for openly PROMOTING child sex SLAVERY.

SLAVERY!!!! Not segregated buses, actual HELD AGAINST THEIR WILL AND FORCED TO WORK SLAVERY. (OK, there were not any slaves in the actual case as filmed, but the employees were so blase about it that there probably are, somewhere, some brothels pocketing taxpayer-through-ACORN funding.

Remember that Obama, in office, is more tied to ACORN than Cheney ever was, as Veep, to Halliburton.

Do these people not understand parody and satire? Rush even said he wasn’t being serious.

A bus full of kids cheered on the beating of a white kid and Rush said of course, all whites are racist so it was self-defense and they need to keep minorities away from the vile racist white kid.

Remember that July 4th story of a family being attacked while watching fireworks by a mob yelling “It’s a black world” ? That wasn’t racial either according to the cops.

Or the old case in Miami where a bored gang decided to beat up the next white person to walk by. I think it was an elderly person. Of course that wasn’t racial either.

More examples of self-defense against white racism.

Charles Johnson jumped his bicycle a long time ago. I removed his link a long time ago.

I never even once read Little Green Footballs. My first impression was that the name was referring to picking one's nose, rolling the material into ball shapes, and flicking them in random directions. It was an immediate turnoff to me. I refuse to patronize such juvenile names. It's gross. I may be wrong about the meaning, but I doubt it.
