A new low for Rush Limbaugh?
AJC ^ | 1/19/11 | Cynthia Tucker

Posted on 01/19/2011 9:52:53 PM PST by pissant

For the most part, I think Rush Limbaugh is better ignored. He’s a shameless liar who has helped turn incivility into the national past-time, a demagogue who has done more than his share to divide the body politic. And made hundreds of millions of dollars doing it. But his utterly classless mocking today of a visiting dignitary — Chinese President Hu Jintao — ought to embarrass many of Limbaugh’s ardent fans. While Limbaugh frequently engages in race-baiting, his performance today was a low ebb even for him. Commenting on the fact that Fox didn’t immediately provide translation during Hu Jintao’s press conference, he mocks the president’s language in the childish and stupid faux Mandarin that was typical of bad Hollywood slapstick of the 1920s and ’30s. (h/t Steve Benen):

“We’re not gonna gyp Fox,” Rush Limbaugh said. “I wanted to gyp it because the — well, the — Hu Jintao, he was speaking, and they weren’t translating. They normally — you have some translator every couple of words. But Hu Jintao was just going [mocking Chinese speech for 20 seconds]. Nobody was translating. But that’s the closest I can get.”

It’s not even funny — just dumb. If you can stomach it, you can hear it on this audio clip:

I thought he sounded just like Hu did. The PC police are in full battle cry now. Screw 'em.

Stupid woman. It’s not “gyp”. You are not allowed to say “gyp” anymore because it offends Gypsies. What Rush said was “jip” - join in progress.

I wonder how this MSM hypocrite b1tch felt when Saturday Night Live, TWICE, had WHITE COMEDIANS faking Chinese noises and portraying Hu Jintao bending over asking Obama to screw him in the ass because of our loans from them.

Why didn’t she raise the issue these two times?

Friggin myopic hypocrite liberal propagandist.

You’d think there would have been a screen scroller or something and that Hu would have furnished an English version of his planned presentation. Chinese isn’t always easy to translate into English.

Yeah, it was a bit over the top to mock Chinese yakking. It should suffice to say that Hu was yakking away in Chinese on the tube and heaven knew what he was trying to tell Obama.

So Rush made fun of a thug tyrant who is having 32,000 babies murdered while he hobnobs in Washington.

He deserves neither the title of dignitary, nor the respect of any American.

If Rush made any mistake, it was in ~only~ mocking him, rather than lambasting him as the murdering Communist he is.

(Of course, Hu and The Usurper will get along just fine..... while they’re comparing body counts.)

He actually did a very good job of mimicking Chinese. My nephew's wife and her mother and friends sound just like that. I am sure the Chinese think we talk funny too. So what?

I laughed, A LOT. He did a pretty good job of fake sounding Chinese. He managed to make Hu Jintao sound about as shrill and meaningless as Cynthia Tucker.

I don't understand Tucker's definition of racism. It's not like Rush called Hu a “zipperhead.”

“divide the body politic” What does that mean? I thought that was the way it was supposed to be. That’s why we have different parties.

If Rush, or Cindy, were Chinese citizens in China, and went on rants like this against Hu, what would they get? A long prison sentence, or just a simple bullet to the back of the head, and body unceremoniously dumped into a trench?

But the Left always have admired their dictators.

Except, of course, the part where you profit from it, both politically and financially. What would a liberal be without contradicting his very first thought...

He sounded a bit more Cantonese than Mandarin, but who knows how it comes across through his hearing device. When I was in Brazil back in the 70's the maid of the family I lived with imitated for me what English sounded like to her. It didn't sound like English, but it accurately represented what were, for her, distinctive English consonant sounds. I thought Rush did a good job of using intonation to bring out what is undoubtedly Hu Jintao's contempt for the country he and his buds back in the PRC are making a pack of money from.

And they call this woman a reporter? I call her a blind fool and an ignorant one at that.

Cynthia, you ditz! Since Rush has the largest radio audience in the United States, he has actually done more than anyone to unite the body politic. It's just that you don't like the politics of that united body. Poor baby. Go whine on someone else's shoulder.

If Hu’s on first (along with Red China), then the U.S. is only second-class, not on second base. And when you’re second, you’re a loser.

Now HU’s laughing?
