Skip to comments.Limbaugh Warns of White Jim Crow

TGL has been following the devolution of political discourse into fear-mongering and apparent race-baiting since Van Jones, the former adviser to the Council on Environmental Quality, first got entangled in it.
Like many commentators, this blogger has felt that the level of disrespect shown for Obama, and indeed the office of the president, of late was fueled by racism.
At least as far as Rush Limbaugh goes, the nagging question has been answered. Limbaugh called for segregation of school buses in response to an incident in which a white boy was beaten up by two black boys.
Here's the chain of events: In one of probably hundreds of school bus incidents that day, a white student was roughed up punched by two black students while onlookers egged them on. Local law enforcement tentatively declared that the incident was racially motivated. The next day, national conservative blog the Drudge Report made the incident its top story.
The same day, the AP reported that law enforcement was now saying that race was not a factor in the fight. (The aggressors objected to the boy's choice of seats.)
The next day, Limbaugh discussed the incident, and even after a caller reminded him that the police were reporting that race was not a factor, said:
In Obama's America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering, 'Yay, right on, right on, right on, right on.' I wonder if Obama's going to come to come to the defense of the assailants the way he did his friend Skip Gates up there at Harvard.
Frankly, it's hard to make sense of Limbaugh's rant, but in what appears to be a continued attempt by the right to redefine racism as blacks' alleged hatred of whites, with what appeared to be sarcasm,

This article is just stupid.
A $40,000 per year D-quality writer for a dying newspaper writes more hatred of the Right...who knew?
Well of COURSE racism is all about whites on blacks....sheesh
Yep a total lie. Rush was using sarcasm which the left does not understand.
“Frankly, it’s hard to make sense of Limbaugh’s rant...”
It’s called irony/sarcasm/humor
Typical dumb, humorless, Lib puke
“Here’s the chain of events: In one of probably hundreds of school bus incidents that day.
If so, their are several officials that should be shot at dawn. Fortunately it’s a lie.
If you read the whole thing, he actually addresses the sarcasm, but still doesn’t seem to understand.
“Hundreds” of school bus incidents and only one Youtube moment? Doubt it.
“Those quoting Rush were also too stupid to recognize sarcasm.”
It suits their self righteousness to not recognize the sarcasm or the hyposcrisy.
Yet black-only homecoming dances and black colleges are ok eh?
Or “diversity” scholarships?
OK I get it now.
They understand sarcasm well enough when Jon Stewart (anchorman of the under-30 Left) says something snarky and gives his 'confused' look. It's only when a conservative uses it that they get obtuse and take every word literally. It's all about discrediting Rush, plain and simple.
>>The aggressors objected to the boy’s choice of seats
Yeah. He sat in the seats that the black kids had claimed as their “territory”. Does that mean that white kids can now declare a part of the bus (for example: the front!) to be a whites-only zone?
Van Jones was a racebaiting, fear mongering NAKED COMMUNIST and 9-11 Truther.
And Obama KNEW what he was getting.
Old (not news) crap. Search and you shall learn.
