Rush Limbaugh: “If I had a father he would look like ‘Shorty’ Delbert Belton.
Gateway Pundit ^ | August 24, 2013 | Mara Zebest

Posted on 08/25/2013 7:51:02 AM PDT by Hojczyk

A full transcript can be found at Rush Limbaugh’s site. Rush stated the following:

“You know, if I had a father, he would look like “Shorty” Delbert Belton, and, if I had a son, he’d look like Chris Lane. Nobody’s gonna say that. Obama has not called the parents of Chris Lane. I don’t know if Obama has called anybody related to “Shorty” Delbert Belton, but these two were people killed by bored, thug-wannabe African-Americans. There still has been more outrage over a rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask than either of these two events combined. It’s this kind of thing — this cultural rot, this decay — that you can’t even address without being called a racist”

I wish Rush would stop using the term “African American.” It’s a term I think conservatives should avoid. There are blacks and there are whites, or Negroes and Caucasians, but saying “African American” just buys into the notion of identity politics.

Exactly, the Rush of “words mean things” needs to take charge of his usage and the first thing eliminated should be any use of the hyphenated “American” label people have taken for themselves. Shortly after that, he can go to work on eliminating “gay” and referring to the traitor Bradley Manning with anything other than a male name or pronoun.

I can’t forget the article I read here a few months back in which a ditzy, college student was lamenting the fact that many “African Americans” were being killed in the wars in Africa. It sounds as though her Marxist “perfessor” taught her that if your skin is “black”, you’re an “African American” regardless of where on the planet you live. LOL! Morons!

African American

I refuse to use the term for a segment of the population that are generations removed from African ancestry, and refuse to deal honestly with the role of Africa in the slave trade.

I can relate to Rush’s comment.

My Father is long gone and I only have daughters.

I think this is a great slogan for me too.

It’s this kind of thing — this cultural rot, this decay — that you can’t even address without being called a racist.

Those who define the terms usually win the arguments.

Another FReeper once told me that a college diploma is nothing more than a tuition receipt these days. He was right, IMHO.

There’s:

Then there’s:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=list+of+black+americans&title=Special%3ASearch

The page “List of black americans” does not exist. You can ask for it to be created, but consider checking the search results below to see whether the topic is already covered.

And then there’s:

Rush Limbaugh: “If I had a father he would look like ‘Shorty’ Delbert Belton. If I had a son he would look like Chris Lane”

Rush or his staff must definitely read FR as that is a paraphrase of one of my posts of a couple of days ago.

This comment about Shorty is all over Facebook. Nothing original from Rush. But thanks Rush for mentioning this American’s heroes name.

My thoughts exactly. And if I had a grandson he would look like Antonio Santiago. Years ago Mario the sfaccim Cuomo said "Tawana Brawley is my daughter". And Yankel Rosenbaum is still my brother.

the Rush of “words mean things”

I wish he would also get rid of the term "liberal". The left opposes liberty, so don't let them hijack another word. Call them leftist or communists. I wouldn't even call them Democrats. Also, get rid of the term "Gay". Homosexuals are homosexuals. Most are angry, bitter, narcissistic jerks. There is nothing happy or "Gay" about them.

“American-American” is a PC term coined by Jesse Jackson.
They used to be called “negroes”, then “colored”, then “blacks”, then “afro-americans”. Brothe Jesse didn’t like any of these designations. They didn’t really “distinguish” black Americans from white Americans, and since he’s the race hustler he is, about 25 years ago he goes on national TV on all the news shows to promote the “african-american”, term for black Americans. Pure race-baiting politics. An American is an American, is an American, except in the eyes of Brother Jesse Jackson and the rest of the race baiters, both white and black. I have never used the liberal PC term for a black American and never will. I don’t play their BS games.

That's a term that I try to avoid, because the term once had a positive connotation. I prefer Mark Levin's moniker: "statist", or Ayn Rand's: "collectivist". These terms apply to fascists and socialists of all stripes.

I believe Nelson Mandela was introduced, in Yankee stadium possibly, as “that great African-American.”

Rush doesn't always get it right, but when he does he cleans the bases.  This one is right on the mark.
  Are his comments original?  No, but they sure raise the visibility of these thoughts.  Excellent.

So, is a white American who emigrated from South Africa an 'African-American', too? Ditch the PC and all the hyphenated designations.

Remember the outrage from the black community when Teresa Heintz Kerry described herself as “African-American”? She is a white American who was born in Africa.

Ironically the President is one of the small minority, white or black, who are truly “African-American.” The ordinary black American is about as African as Teddy Roosevelt was Dutch.

I forwarded this thread to El Rushbo in the hope that he will see it and stop his use of “African American.” I have no idea if he or any of his staff actually read his email.

Yeah, if he’s willing to show some discipline about his stand on MSNBC that he expounded at length about a while ago, then why not apply that discipline to language?
