HONOLULU (AP) -- The Honolulu City Council has approved a resolution urging radio show host Rush Limbaugh to apologize for comments on China's president.

The Star Advertiser reports that the City Council voted 8-1 Wednesday asking the talk show host to apologize for what it termed "offensive and derogatory remarks" made about Chinese President Hu Jintao on his Jan. 19 radio program.

Why are they standing up for a friggin’ Chicom leader? That place is, geographically and culturally the LEAST “American” state in the Union. Give ‘em independence, if they want it....

Is Hawaii a province of China?

They now represent China?

Apparently so. Very odd. But they still can't find a birth certificate.

Have they asked Donald Trump to apologize? The Donald said he hates China and that they can’t be trusted. Personally I agree with Trump.

“urging radio show host Rush Limbaugh to apologize for comments on China’s”

As a second thought, Rush should agree to apologize, as soon
as Hawaii releases Obambie’s REAL birth certificate.

Straight up trade, one insincere apology for one valid long-form Certificate of Live Birth for Obama. Rush might go for that. He could have great fun with the apology.

Every time these Libtards go after Rush with some silly crap all they do is increase his popularity and ratings.

Yesterday it was Moochelle chomping down on a rack of Ribs and her Boob belt accentuating her lack of a rack.

Can't even remember what the Hate Limbaugh crap was from two weeks ago. It rolls of Rush's back like water off a duck.

Dud the idiots in Hawaii already get an apology from the SNL cast? Must have missed that one.

The chip-on-shoulder, perpetually offended minorities have been emboldened by decades of dominance in popular culture, mass media and many of our most visible institutions by self-hating white liberals.

It is at least some small consolation to get in the face of these types, whenever the opportunity presents itself, to palpably and forcefully illustrate that not all European Christian Americans despise their heritage.

“....geographically and culturally the LEAST “American” state in the Union..”

That’s the point. I am from Hawaii. If you haven’t visited the state, I’ll give you a quick description of its socio/political landscape: IT’S RED, and when I say “RED”, I’m not referring to Republicans or Democrats.

Gee. Is everything in Honolulu running so well that the city council has no bigger problem to solve that what some guy on the radio said about a foreign head of state. I wish you politicians would get over your pathetic self-important selves.

Rush was mocking the lack of a translator, not Hu. How many hundreds of examples of the mocking of the Chinese language in American humor are there? Get a life Hawaii.

TChad, this is a great idea, ‘Rush should agree to apologize, as soon as Hawaii releases Obamba’s REAL birth certificate.’
I do wonder why Rush, Beck and many other conservatives have not delved into the lack of BO records including BC, College Transcripts, SS#, Passport, etc. I find this very disturbing as these paragons of conservative communication have done little more than rehash juvenile issues about the communist manifested by the Democrat majorities. I've grown very tired of this basic reactionary tactic that has done very little to engage the real battle. I am starting to think that the talkers really have done so well during this period that their vested interest is not necessarily that of the principled American conservatives.

Did the City of Honolulu also ask for an apology from NBC over its own portrayal of President Hu Jintao by not one but two whiteys on SNL?

I'd dare say in that case, those were "more offensive" than anything Rush would put on the air.

Of course we probably know they didn't even think about condemning NBC because such things are only worthy of condemnation when a conservative does them.

Exactly. Rush lives rent free in the heads of these liberal idiots. It drives the libs nuts and gives Rush hours of entertainment. Rush provokes these people for fun and profit. The louder they scream the more people check out his show. The idiots on the left don't even realize they are playing right into his hand. He pokes them with stick and they squeal like pigs providing Rush with even more material and listeners. It's a great system.

Keep up the good work Rush!

Dang straight!

The have dumped all their cheap, lead-paint poisoned crap on us for years to soften us up. They got most of our manufacturing and got most of us to depend on a government check. Government goes broke, riots in the streets, they take possession of what’s left. With their growing economy and the rest of the East the only thing they need us for is water and farmland. I’m sure “the powers that be” have already signed over our natural resources as collateral for all those worthless dollars. (yes I like your tagline ;-)

Not a chance, we invade to protect our military bases that are all over the island of Oahu, and the most cherished memorial, to the sacrifice of our men prior to WWII. “Remember the Arizona”.

That place is, geographically and culturally the LEAST “American” state in the Union.

Agree completely.

In fact, perhaps a return to their pre-state condition, would be far more acceptable. Strip them of statehood until they get it, or cough up the birth certificate. Oh never mind, when stripped of statehood, their previous records depositories will become an open book. Get er done!

My guess is if Rush can get them to send it to him as a copy written up in Chinese characters (and who could be racist enough to oppose that), he’ll have it up on the auction block by the time his show hits the air.

Hey Honolulu, Rush Limbaugh will apologize when you can find that Legal Birth Certificate that your Governor Neal Abercromobie states he will release to end the issue of the unending request for Obama’s birth certificate. Till than Honolulu keep looking for is check under every rock, and maybe you will have to lift up the USS Arizona from the bottom of pearl harbor, because that is where Obama’s daddy hid it. It is under the bow on the left side the battleship. ( I am getting cynical)

“Sounds like the Honolulu City Council are a bunch of Asian racists.”

The ‘melting pot’ concept ended decades ago and there has been a steady factionalizing of the US for quite some time now. Does anyone really believe that, if given complete power today these factions wouldn't discriminate and treat the rest of us like second or third class citizens?
