Skip to comments.Limbaugh: GOP ‘Frozen’ By ‘Paralyzing’ Accusations of Racism Towards Obama
Posted on 09/05/2013 4:26:10 AM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said on his program on Wednesday that he believes the Republican Party will operate in an entirely different fashion if the next Democratic presidential nominee is not an African-American. He said that the Republican Party is frozen in fear of being accused of being racist and is not effectively opposing President Barack Obama as a result of that fear.
By every measure available to us, polling data, everything but election returns, Limbaugh began, the American people oppose what is happening.
The party thats supposed to represent us is afraid to, he continued. They are more inclined to either be quiet or to give the appearance of, not opposing Obama because theyre scared to do it, for some reason. And I think one of the primary reasons or explanations for that is race. I just think its paralyzing.
I think the accusation of racism and serious criticism will be rejected because its said to be racist, Limbaugh continued. I really do think it has them befuddled.
We havent lost the people yet, he added.
If the next Democrat presidential candidate is not African-American, its going to change everything about the way the Republican Party operates, Limbaugh said. I think the Republican Party is frozen.
He said that, once Democrats cannot accuse the presidents opponents of being racist, it will free the GOP to be more strident in their opposition to Democratic policies.

Next time it will be Sexist!!
Rush gives the Republican party more credit than I do.
Certainly the race thing is a problem for the party, but IMO the Republican party no longer exists.
They are so infiltrated with RINO’s that are I reality Dem lites that they are no longer a party ,but part of the Democrats.
They’re frightened by cowardice and gutlessness, nothing more. The libtards cry “racism” more often than say “hello” during the average day, and would accuse a 4-year old of it if it would further their perverted political agenda. They are the most racist scum in the country, and their accusations mean nothing...
From what I hear plenty of Republicans support intervention with many neocons including Karl Rove signing a letter for it.
Donald Rumsfeld, McCain and Graham, John Boehner and my senator Pat Toomey.
I thought these folks were fighting a war on terrorism against Al-Quaeda since 9/11/2001.
Now it looks like all these Republicans want to take sides with Al-Quaeda in Syria.
Its now even more disheartening to realize that GOP leaders have not only lied to us about opposing Obamacare, they have also lied about fighting terrorism with their stand on Syria.
I DON’T HEAR RUSH LIMBAUGH, MY NAMESAKE TALKING THIS WAY ABOUT THE ISSUE. HE’S ALWAYS IN ATTACK THE DEMOCRATS MODE AND TRY TO KEEP US ON THE REPUBLICAN PLANTATION MODE.
Many Republicans have decided to take the side of terrorism in Syria along with Obama and the Democrats making their stated opposition to terrorism look like another lie.
You should have learned that about the GOP
when they ran Mitt Romney in 2012
(backstabber of Gov Palin in 2008 for Obama)
EVEN THOUGH he created RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE.
The net result was ultimate duplicity as
the GOP attempted to run
against DeathCARE/Statism in Medicine,
even after creating it.
Unless Hillary (God forbid) ends up in the white house next! Then they'll just be accused of being "sexist"!
People’s feelings are not covered in the constitution, however, the right to politically incorrect speech is.
The GPO is cowering from accusations of exercising their right to criticize the incompetent buffoon who currently occupies the WHITE House.

Racism is a word ... that's all, and all ANY pubbie has to do is continuously hammer on the blatant racism of the mulatto bastard (but I repeat myself) and his administration.
"Senator, we know you wanted to go to war with Syria, but today's vote indicated that you might have changed your mind ... would you comment .. "
"Well .. that's a good question John, and I would remind the people of America that Eric Holder never brought the New Black Panthers to trial because he too is a racist and will do nothing to correct the inordinate inequality of the black attitude against the whites."
"Yes sir, but as far as your vote goes ... "
"There have been hundreds of blacks assaulting and killing whites ever since St Trayvon was beatified and not ONE has been charged, nor have they been charged as a hate crime. It is overly evident that this administration is catering to muslims, al quida, blacks and all manner of enemies to the United States and it begins with the inconsiderate, foot on the desk racist in the White House"
"Sir ... do you agree with ... "
THAT'S how every interview should go. Guaranteed the racism accusations would disappear in a week.
Well, yes..... that AND the fact that Obama is most likely holding something so damaging (gleamed from all the unconstitutional surveillance) over the head of each congressman that they will cave in and obey.
Yep. Rush still can’t bring himself to believe how corrupt and infiltrated the GOP is.
Exactly what's going on. Well said. I was disappointed to hear Rush blame the Pubbies problems on being "frozen by paralyzing accusation of racism".
Rush is not telling the hard truth he’s just too tied to the GOP.
1. Godless, completely unethical law firms and individual lawyers within those firms.
2. Major corporate officials who support this administration for immoral reasons, not economic reasons.
3. Federal agency officials who support this administration for the same reason.
4. Congressmen and women who support this administration for the same reason.
ALL must be held responsible. The president is merely a figurehead representing the bigger boil beneath the skin.
America, in your rush to elect the first black president, you elected the worst president.
Correct! Now you [America] is beginning to reap the seeds they sowed. Enjoy!
The new Four Horsemen of the coming apocalypse:
“Racisim” my behind. I don’t care if the guy is green black, blue or white, he is still an arrogant idiot. To me that is reason enough to dislike him. Race has nothing to do with it.
Where are you hearing that Rumsfeld support? Not from what I am reading: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/rumsfeld-blasts-obamas-red-line-on-fox-he-will-blame-everybody-and-anybody-but-himself/
Dr. Carson, Allen West, Herman Cain... these are black men I would follow into any war zone any time any day.
Barack Obama is a feckless turd with no morals, no scruples, he’s an agitator, and he’s completely incompetent. He was put into office through bribery, trickery, treachery, and fraud. He has no proper documentation as to who he is or where he’s been, his past is a complete mystery, and he’s consistently sided with Islamist extremism on the world stage.
Barack Hussein Obama is a treacherous human being not worthy of his lot in life. That’s not racist, that’s fact. He belongs in a cell, rotting away the rest of his life, not walking a free man running a country of 300 million people.
That is rationalization for self righteous conservatives that allowed Obama to be elected.
His critique is about the style, not the substance of the situation.
Obama is muddling the thing up etc. etc. is what’s coming from Rumsfeld.
The GOPe wants intervention like guys who used to work the State Department from Kissinger down to guys like Elliot Abrams.
Dan Senor and that most infamous of Bush Administration officials Karl Rove have also signed onto military action.
In 2013 America you're allowed to disagree with the president and believe he's a buffoon without being considered a racist. Except perhaps for the far out fringes which were never ever going to think well of Republicans anyway.
Yeah right, big choice: Amnesty McCain or RomneycareRomney.
"That is rationalization for self righteous conservatives that allowed Obama to be elected."
Bullsquat! It is the truth. McCain and Romney were both terrible candidates, both had serious credibility/likability issues, and both took a dive like a crooked prize fighter.
Rumsfeld spoke in Grand Rapids at the Gerald R. ford Presidential Museum earlier this week.
“You ought to change the regime or you ought to do nothing” is the quote from Rumsfeld on Tuesday from the M Live website.
BS Rush. GOP is complicit in totalitarian tactics of the half-frikken American. We have NO representation.
—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM/TOTALITARIANISM
From Obamacare to Benghazi through Syria, plunder and death.
Then you haven't been listening lately.
If you want him to advocate for your particular third party, it won't happen, but he's not cutting the republicans any slack.
All caps doesn't make your point any more important or you any more correct, BTW.
His point is that the arguments (sales pitches) coming from Republicans are wrong, not that the party is rotten to its core and lying to us about every issue from immigration to Obamacare to fighting terrorist.
That’s what I am saying now about the GOP.
This doesn't seem to phase the eGOP. Because for one, they're not about winning. They're about CYA and protecting their pathetic little careers and perqs. They got themselves out of ObamaCare, have they got the rest of us out of it? Heck no. They're afraid of being called racist or accused of shutting down the government or of starving children and old people. Pathetic little worms.
I hope so-
Because ANY TIME the democraps oppose anything President Palin does I plan to accuse them of hating women.
They are frozen because they do not have a clue how to deal with them. Nor do they have a clue how to exculpate themselves.
As Thomas Sowell said, Democrats could sell Eskimos a freezer before Republicans could sell them blankets.
we see a lot of that White Guilt Liberal nonsense when the Anti-Birthers start attacking the Obama Eligibility people...GOPers are doing the same things as the DNC
AMEN BROTHER! Shouldn't we really blame so-called "conservatives" who decided to stay home and allow this turd to win his second term? Hope all those who stayed home or voted third party are happy with the results.
Lets stop saying the GOPE is frozen by anything regarding Obama-they think just like him!
Of course, fatally flawed candidates who weren’t there to had nothing to do with it.
Fatally flawed or not, none had such pronounced “fatal flaws” as the “Won” does...
