Skip to comments.Limbaugh's Racist Comments: 46 (weak whines) and Counting
Posted on 04/26/2011 6:48:41 AM PDT by flowerplough
(Interesting list, considering the source. Several of the top ten quite weak, several of the top ten quite true.)
Oliver Willis is out to counter the conservative claim that Rush Limbaugh's racism is a figment of the liberal media's imagination. His technique: pulling together a compilation of 46 of the most racist proclamations that have spewed from the talk-radio host's mouth over the past six years, as reported by Media Matters...
Whether you'd file these comments under racism, race-baiting, true-colors revealing or plain old hating, the list is thorough. And at the rate Limbaugh (who is among the most-listened-to political figures in America and was invited to be the keynote speaker at CPAC, the leading conservative gathering) is going, 46 might just turn into 50 by the time you read this (Willis has already supplemented the original 45).
Check out the first 10 here:
1. Limbaugh on Obama: "Halfrican American" (1/24/07)
2. Limbaugh on Obama: His "only chance of winning is that he's black" (6/2/08)
3. Limbaugh on Jesse Jackson: Kerry camp got "a chocolate chip" (1/30/04)
4. Limbaugh: "If Obama weren't black, he'd be a tour guide in Honolulu" (7/6/10)
5. Limbaugh twice used word "spade" during discussion of Obama (1/15/08)
6. Limbaugh: Obama "wouldn't have been voted president if he weren't black" (7/6/10)
7. Limbaugh: "The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well" (2003)
8. Limbaugh: "NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons" (1/19/07)
9. Limbaugh: Left upset with Obama because "white people are not shining the shoes of black people" (4/22/11)
10. Limbaugh: Gallup is "upping the sample of black Americans" to keep Obama's approval rating over 50 percent (11/19/09)

Henry Louis Gates? This is the guy who is the race baiter.
I read those comments and all I see are a guy making statements about other people’s views on race. I guess when a conservative does that, it is “racist” or “race baiting.” When a liberal does it, I guess it’s enlightened.
Of that top 10, only 5 and 8 are racist in my book. The others are simply the truth.
By the way, it’s not illegal for an individual to be racist. The thought police haven’t been given that much power... yet.
I see Oliver grasping at straws to try to make a point that the Central Committee told him to make. Straws.
Ol' Skip must listen to Rush an awful lot to compile a list like that.
He better be careful though. If he listens too much, he'll become a Dittohead.
Funny now, but sooner or later people will become very tired and angry over this crap.
It is amazing what gets lumped in as being “racist” these days.
If I wanted to know whether or not Rush was a racist, I would ask:
2) Walter Williams
3) Thomas Sowell
4) Clarence Thomas
5) The Hutch
6) Ward Connerly
Laughable! Is this all they got? Ha!!!!
As for #5, I might agree, but only if in a certain context. If he said something like “There’s a spade in the White House” - yes. If he said “lets call a spade a spade” - not so much. There was no context given and it would be wise to remember the left are liars and smear merchants first and foremost.
I must be a racist also (with black relatives who agree with Rush) because I think Rush hits the nail on the head with his kind of delivery for this socialist, destroyer who HAPPENS to be mulatto...not black. He’s actually being nice considering what he could say.
0 is only popular because the socialist media make him that way.
We all know how it works.
I’ll pull a ‘in-your-face-demwad/socialist 0 statement
Is it now racist to state fact? Fact is, if not for Obama’s race he wouldn’t have been elected to the White House. Period!
And 5 doesn't even give the quote. So we can't judge for ourselves.
Mat Drudge is the racist, because all Rush does these days is read from the Drudge Report and talk like he researched it.
If you are up an catch the Drudge report the when it first updates in the morning, remember it, because Rush will start out his show with the top headline from Drudge and then go down the list of articles throughout his show.
"I'll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years."
-- Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson
"The only concession I might make to him(King Saud) is to give him the 60 million jews we have in the United States"
-- Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt
"I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes."
-- Democrat Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, 1961
"These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don't move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there'll be no way of stopping them, we'll lose the filibuster and there'll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It'll be Reconstruction all over again."
-- Democrat Senator Lyndon B. Johnson (D., Texas), 1957
".....African-Americans watch the same news at night that ordinary Americans do. "
-- Democrat President Clinton

Truth is a bitter pill to swallow... Q, What’s the difference between a black marxist and a white marxist? A, The white marxist can’t get away with things the way a black marxist can.
