Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Racist and Other Observations

post #1 of 263
Thread Starter 
Glenn Beck has a thread, so why not one for ol' Rushie?

Let me break the ice with this recent nugget:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/0..._n_637630.html

Quote:
[Obama] wouldn't have been voted president if he weren't black. Somebody asked me over the weekend why does somebody earn a lot of money have a lot of money, because she's black. It was Oprah. No, it can't be. Yes, it is. There's a lot of guilt out there, show we're not racists, we'll make this person wealthy and big and famous and so forth.... If Obama weren't black he'd be a tour guide in Honolulu or he'd be teaching Saul Alinsky constitutional law or lecturing on it in Chicago.
Yes, if Barack Obama, a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, and former president of the Harvard Law Review, weren't black he'd be a tour guide in Honolulu. Right.

I really despise this man.

He's always fighting for top spot of my "really wish they'd just get murdered already" list.

My brother's girlfriend is a tour guide in Honolulu. She's not black, though.

Just sayin.

Whereas, George W. Bush totally earned his presidency through a lifetime of hard work.

Too bad. She could have been president. I know when I applied for the job, that's why I was turned down.

I also still cant get over the juxtaposition of of saying he would be a tour guide or teaching constitutional law.

Isnt that like saying he would have been either assistant manager at a McDonalds or an astronaut?

To me, the most transparently gross thing about Beck and Limbaugh both is how disgustingly money-grubbing they are. Grabbing as much money as possible seems to be, quite literally, all that matters to them.

Limbaugh said something similar about Donovan Mcnabb, which got him fired from ESPN several years ago. He just really, really hates black people.

See murder would only energize the idiots that follow him. Just somehow have him rendered speechless and paralyzed.

Eh... I don't know. I'd love to see him raped to death, "Mel Gibson style."

This fucking guy. If I'm in my car at lunch I sometimes flip to the AM channel he's on just to hear some of the ridiculous shit that spews out of him. It's almost to the point where i believe that him and his ilk don't even believe half the shit they say, and just say it because they know that's what their listeners want. Like, on the day that Obama won the election i could picture them fist-pumping and screaming 'YEAAAH!' because now they have 4 years where they can basically go on auto-pilot and rake in the dough.

When you realize that a solid third of this country view this guy, Beck, and Palin as fonts of truth and decency, it makes you want to hurry up and expatriate before we get the hillbilly version of The Night of Broken Glass.
post #13 of 263
What's even more ironic is I have to imagine that a great many of the jerk-offs that actually listen/call in aren't, you know, working.

Another nugget was spoken today.

Quote:
'This is payback,' meaning, 'All right, look. We don't care if it's the New Black Panthers or whoever it is. Black people in this country have never, ever had a fair shake. This is payback. O.J. Simpson was payback. How does it feel?' That word 'payback' is not mine, [but] it is exactly how I think Obama looks at the country: It's payback time... There's no question that payback is what this administration is all about, presiding over the decline of the United States of America, and doing so happily."
He's going to continue spewing this irresponsible drivel, and his mongoloid audience will eat it up and agree with every word because they lack the critical thinking skills to think for themselves. If one of these rednecks doesn't at least attempt to fire on Obama during his term, I'll be shocked. And if it does happen, shitheads like Limbaugh should take a great deal of the blame.

These are the kind of things I like to bring up when simpletons say "well, both sides are just as bad!".
post #16 of 263
The only things worse than Rush are the ads he runs on his show ("buy Gold right now!") and the utter morons who call into his show...across the board jackasses.
post #17 of 263
He also went on to state that Oprah is only successful because she's black. Apparently no matter what level of success you achieve in America, if you're black, it's BECAUSE of your race, not in spite of it! Limbaugh? His career must be totally based on his talent as a broadcaster, and not his cynical targeting of lonely white trash racists who still listen to the radio.

The public is very desirous of having a black president. That's why we had 43 white ones in a row.

43 white presidencies, then.

Plus, the name Grover Cleavland is so white that it should be counted twice

If you think that a person like Rush believes to the letter even a quarter of what he says out loud over the airwaves you are profoundly naive.

This. He believes in zeroes on checks made out to him and little else.

I've always wanted someting to happen that would utterly destroy Rush's credibility to his followers. They overlook the pills and obvious lies so it would have to be something huge like being caught with a live boy or dead girl kind of thing. Something to utter ruin his ass and not make him a martyr to his followers.

How about he smokes Cuban cigars and vacations in France. The man is a total hypocrite.

The fact that men that are this nihilistically evil like Rush and Beck have such die hard populous followings in the US is what makes me think it may be time for a second civil war.

I'm just waiting for him to say the N word about Obama. There's a really funny rant about this in Don Winslow's new book Savages out next week.

The guy was found with massive amounts of illegally prescribed Viagra coming off a an all-male private flight to Thailand, the child prostitute capital of the world. There is literally nothing that will get the Dittoheads to leave the collective.

I guess I will just have to wait for the inevitable heart attack then.

I'm certainly no fan of this douchebag, but it was his private plane returning from the Dominican Republic (which, yes, has issues with prostitution). And "massive amounts"? About half of a prescription bottle.

I can't believe I'm defending this prick, but isn't there enough heinous shit about him out there to point to without resorting to gross embellishment?

I'll cop to getting the location wrong, but it is kind of weird to need a whole bottle of illegally prescribed Viagra when there isn't a single woman in your travel group. So, yeah, I think it qualifies as a massive amount for the situation.

When Rush was married for the fourth time; does anyone think he got the same vows as Ming in Flash Gordon? "Do you take her as your Empress of the hour?"

"Of the hour. Yes."
post #36 of 263
Limbaugh has gotten exponentially more provocative since Beck has dethroned him as the prince of distaste and utter un integrity.

Limbaugh is like Billy Graham... he knows what he's saying isn't true, but people are gullible enough and will throw themselves at his feet because he says the things that people are secretly thinking.

Tomorrow is Obama's birthday, not that we've seen any proof of that... What? We haven't seen any proof of that! They tell us August 4th is the birthday; we haven't seen any proof of that! Sorry. It is what it is.

I've not seen proof that Limbaugh doesn't jack himself off using ferrets, either.

Rush Limbaugh said Friday that the media is allowing Michelle Obama to take a vacation as a form of reparations for "our slave past."

In discussing the lack of media outrage over the First Lady's trip to Spain — which isn't exactly true, as documented here — Limbaugh said that it stems from her race.

"As far as the media's concerned, Mrs. Obama deserves this," he said. "Look at the sordid past. Look at our slave past, look at the discriminatory past. It's only fair that people of color get their taste of the wealth of America too."

It's not about the listeners. It never has been. The dirty little secret of Limbaugh's "massive audience" is that his corporate backers force him on stations and many of those stations don't pay to carry him. It's the reason you hear about Gold Bond Foot Powder and the like fucking constantly in the ad portions of the program. Those "sponsors" are more less like sponsors and more like people selling just another product through their role as sponsors on these stations, which is Rush Limbaugh. They sell Limbaugh because Limbaugh gets people fucking stupid enough to call themselves "dittoheads" to vote against their own interests and for the interest of the companies that make things like Gold Bond.

These tactics are all about getting stupid, easily frightened, racist white people scared shitless to the point that they think failing to get to the polls on election day and voting against the Democrats would be an existential threat. They're trying to use fear to improve voter turnout for the people stupid enough to vote Republican and their corporate backers are paying for it to keep the Reagan-era policy leftovers on life support.

Yeah, but don't people have to listen to his stupid worthless show for any of that to work?

"Doctor" Laura lectures a black woman on racism, and in the process says the N-word. Ten times.



PS In my family, we were taught that unless you're a medical doctor or a person of science, you don't call yourself "Doctor". My Dad has a JD but doesn't require anyone to pretend he's Dougie Howser

If you're willing to spread your show to the most number of stations for the least amount of money from the station you'll find enough idiots to make it pay off. Not saying that the US doesn't have more than its share of idiots. Just saying that if you lower the bar low enough, success can be achieved more easily.

That said, the fact that this troglodyte has an audience at all in my country fills me with despair.

Ha ha, look at this photo from Rush's wedding.


post #48 of 263
As regards the folks who say (probably with considerable justification) that Rush doesn't believe half the shit he deals out and is only in it for the money, I give you Kurt Vonnegut's Mother Night:

"We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be."

In fact, the idea of Rush as a Howard W. Campbell Jr. planted here to rile up dummies while speaking in code to, I dunno, Al Qaeda operatives pleases me immensely for some reason. I'm not saying it's plausible. I'm just saying it's a satisfying brief daydream.

There's probably a reason Keith Gordon felt compelled to turn the book into a (superb) movie in 1996, when the Republican noise machine against Clinton was in full roar.

Frank Accuses Limbaugh of Homophobic Attack

Quote:
House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank on Monday accused conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh of launching a “vicious, homophobic attack” on him in the lead-up to the midterm elections.

The Massachusetts Democrat, who is openly gay, said Limbaugh, who has been critical of Frank for years over his liberal positions, reached a new low last Thursday during his nationally syndicated show. In addition to referring to the Financial Services chairman as the “banking queen,” Limbaugh played the song “My Boy Lollypop” as he talked about Frank and added slurping noises into the song that simulate the sounds of a sexual act.

“He just launched this very, even for him, vicious, homophobic attack,” Frank said during an interview on MSNBC.

Frank spokesman Harry Gural said Tuesday his office was “shocked” and “offended” to hear how Limbaugh was characterizing the lawmaker.

“I find it completely disgusting. I cannot believe he would play that on the radio. A lot of people would find that revolting,” Gural said.
