It’s probably a copyright violation, and YouTube will comply.

I'm quoting Rush, we do audio, not video. It's not ours. The audio has been around for a while, apparently the video is new.

That’s funny. Of course, all the usual suspects are out claiming racism, et al.

Okay. I stand corrected.

Rush made it sound like it had just gone up on YouTube within the hour.
(LOL, I'm glad I didn't put it in 'Breaking News')

Youtube is owned by Google. While they claim that they prohibit “offensive” content, they are selective in their enforcement. Michele Malkin has had her clips deleted by their choice (not hers) and also moved to “adults only” content.

This is an unauthorized video, so on the copyright violation grounds, Youtube has to be “consistent” and remove the video.

The URL for the video is politicalpartypoop.com which is a black conservative website.

VideoDownloader is a free program that may work.

Also, if you played it through your browse, you probably have the temp file on your computer already.

Do the following:

Do a search using ‘today’ as the search perimeter. Then, sort the results by Date/Time. Look for any file that is near the time you played the video through your browser.

On my computer, the file is:

E56BDFFCd01 with no extension. It is 5,382 KB in size.

If you have that, or a similar file that is exactly 5,382 KB, copy it to some other directory [I use a Temp directory on my computer].

After you copy the file, simply rename it by adding the .FLV extension.

Try playing it in your default FLV player. If it is the correct file, it will play.

You can use other programs to convert the FLV file to AVI or MPG.

Just like the guy in Iraq singing about the Iraqi girl. Youtube wasn’t real vigilant about keeping that clip off the net. They CAIRed too much.

I think Rush complained about the CBS TV station that used the Youtube video. The station’s story made it appear as though Rush had something to do with the video portion instead of just the soundtrack.

He wasn’t demanding that YouTube take it off, he was demanding the KOVR Ch. 13 in Sacramento take it off their website. He’s SLAMMING them hard today from what I heard of his show (2nd hour).

Tell the liberals at CBS 13 in Sacramento to get it RIGHT and stop attacking Rush, when they should be attacking the leftwing racists at the LA Times....

Lots of Freepers must have already voted.

Is the song racist? 4% yes; 96% no.

There are a bunch of copies of it uploaded to Youtube. Just search for “magic negro”

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=magic+negro

With titles like:

Racist Rush Limbaugh
02:13
“here is a clip of Rush Limbaugh with his (sic) clip “Barack the magic negro””

The DNC Brownshirts are continuing their tactics of deliberately lying to the masses.

I understand Rush’s insistance, but I also do not find the video objectionable.

What was racist about it? Shanklin’s song and pictures of Obama and Sharpton. What’s he compaining about?

I guess one has to put on the “liberal” thinker cap and try to deduce the “actual” meaning behind the video. The only thing I saw was where Obama was dressed up in Senator Byrd’s KKK outfit.

Yep! I’ll bet that’s what it is .. and taken out of context.

I’ve never seen Rush so upset - and I’d get the video down if I was them!

Rush is very possessive of his Paul Shanklin (sp?) pieces. Notice that when he plays them, he almost always speaks over them (in my opinion, to keep people from recording them). As well he should, I’m sure he pays a pretty penny for them.

I remember back when Rush would talk over his update themes and actually say it was to protect them of copying. Your opinion is right on!

And .. because he speaks over them .. there’s no way other stations can play them and why they had to make one up - and he caught ‘em!!
