Rush Limbaugh: Less Fat, Still an Idiot (And a Disgusting Racist to Boot)
Edited on Fri Aug-24-07 01:50 PM by BurtWorm
As explained by Lorelei Kelly of Democracy Arsenal:

http://www.democracyarsenal.org/2007/08/limbaugh-less-f...

Hat tip to mediamatters . Note to Republicans: I am so, so, sorry that this guy reportedly speaks for your base.

Limbaugh claims Dems' interest in Darfur is securing black "voting bloc" Summary: On his nationally syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh claimed that Democrats "want to get us out of Iraq, but they can't wait to get us into Darfur." He continued: "There are two reasons. What color is the skin of the people in Darfur? It's black. And who do the Democrats really need to keep voting for them? If they lose a significant percentage of this voting bloc, they're in trouble." A caller responded, "The black population," to which Limbaugh said, "Right."

On the August 21 broadcast of the nationally syndicated *Rush Limbaugh Show*, a caller said to host Rush Limbaugh"I know I'm no expert in foreign affairs, but what really confuses me about the liberals is the hypocrisy when they talk about how we have no reason to be in Iraq and helping those people, but yet everybody wants us to go to Darfur." Limbaugh responded by claiming Democrats "want to get us out of Iraq, but they can't wait to get us into Darfur." He continued: "There are two reasons. What color is the skin of the people in Darfur? It's black. And who do the Democrats really need to keep voting for them? Ifthey lose a significant percentage of this voting bloc, they're in trouble." The caller responded, "The black population," to which Limbaugh said, "Right."

Limbaugh also stated: "So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela -- who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing."

Limbaugh added: "Clinton sent the U.S. military off to Bosnia. No U.S. national interest at stake. The liberals will use the military as a 'meals on wheels' program. They'll send them out to help with tsunami victims. But you put the military -- you put the military in a position of defending U.S. national interest, and that's when Democrats and the liberals oppose it."

However, interest in ending the killing in the Darfur region of Sudan is bipartisan. In 2006, Congress passed the Darfur Peace and Accountability Act*(sponsored by then-Rep. Henry J. Hyde (R-IL). The law contained several sanctions on Sudan, including a ban on ships involved in Sudan's oil trade docking at U.S. ports of entry. An initial version of the bill passed the House by a vote of 416-3, and the final version passed the House by voice vote and the Senate by unanimous consent and was signed by the president on October 13, 2006.

....


PS: Not that there is any other kind of racist than a digusting one. Except maybe a repulsive one. Or a pinheaded one.

1. Limbaugh clearly says who has the better human rights record - Democrats

The Iraq War is damaging the region, it is not improving anyone's security, save for the financial security of those who are already wealthy.

Darfur needs intervention, the Apartheid regime had state sponsored terrorists and tried to create weapons of mass destruction that would target black people only, there was genocide and ethnic cleansing in Bosnia, and there is ethnic cleansing in Iraq, but no "surge" can fix that.

2. Rush is dignified, refined, educated, and a gentleman.


Give his parents some credit. Do you have any idea how hard it is to train a pig to speak into a microphone?

5. I heard the audio on the Young Turks this morning...
... and I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I know that I should NEVER be surprised by anything this piece of filth ever says. I thought his making fun of Michael J. Fox was about as low as he could get, but I just needed to wait a while.

because it's Republican toxicity, so it must be "mainstream." :eyes:

6. You won't get any argument from me on those statements.
It's too bad that his listeners don't see it. Probably it's because they too are idiots and racist as well.
