Limbaugh Warns of White Jim Crow
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 9/22/09 | Cameron Scott

Posted on 09/22/2009 1:43:45 PM PDT by nickcarraway

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,

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.

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.

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.

Racism is discrimination on the basis of race. The skin colors of each party does not SHIELD the racist from the charge.

This whole argument about black people being incapable of BEING racists because they do not have the power to DO anything with that bias falls flat. Especially now that a black man holds the top office in the nation. What would it take to "exhibit" power?

Either this is satire or Cameron Scott is a blatant, shameless liar. I feel sorry for people who read this, believe it to be true and are influenced in any way by this bridge salesman’s BS.

That’s the key. They need a visual clue to know that it’s sarcasm or any form of wit that doesn’t involve bodily functions or the f-word. They hear talk radio as a continuous droning of facts (which is why lib talk radio bombs) because they are incapable of using language alone to tell sarcasm from fact.

It isn’t that they’re retarded. They are just trained to need visual clues to know what’s being said. It’s the Idiocracy (great movie!) in action.

The media typically gets their talking points from Soro’s Media Matters’ redacted passages of programs like The Rush Limbaugh Show.

Sarcasm doesn’t translate well to the printed page when there are lies of omission in the presented text.

That’s the rat game plan. Paint all opposition as racist then trot out amnesty for illegals. Add 17 million rat voters to the rolls in time for the 2010 elections.

But what the AP HAS tried to say regarding criticism of Obama is that IT IS racially motivated.

So, how is objecting to seat choice NOT racist, according to liberal logic? Why can't WE object to Obama's "seat choices" without being called racist??

Amazing lack of logic alert.

As long as white people continue to back away from race they are going to cram it down our throats.

Sorry, not going to bother with this one. At this point there is no point in reading either the S.F. Chronicle hit piece or the original Limbaugh text. I already know what I will find in both. The hit piece will make Limbaugh appear racist using selective, out of context quotes. The full text on Limbaugh’s website will reveal the supposedly racist rant to be just another demonstration of Limbaugh’s standard technique of “illustrating absurdity by being absurd.” Limbaugh is not a racist.

“The difference between ignorant and educated people is that the latter know more facts. But that has nothing to do with whether they are stupid or intelligent. The difference between stupid and intelligent people-and this is true whether or not they are well-educated-is that intelligent people can handle subtlety. They are not baffled by ambiguous or even contradictory situations-in fact, they expect them and are apt to become suspicious when things seem overly straightforward.” — Neal Stephenson, Diamond Age.

Good god, is that really all it takes for the cops to conclude that race was not a factor? Race was the ONLY factor.
