Rush Limbaugh comment re: Black babies?
Okay, I'm trying not to be angry.

But, did Randi just say what I thought she said? That Rush made a racist comment about black people and black babies being born after Coretta Scott King' funeral?

I am too angry to think. Tell me I'm wrong.

3. Not sure . . .
A few minutes after Randi came on air this afternoon, she called Rush a racist pig about a comment he made about black babies being born after the King funeral.

I was half listening, and didn't catch the whole comment. Shit, I wish I could calm down. Randi played a clip on his comment.

2. that was Bill Bennett
The former U.S. education secretary-turned-talk show host said Wednesday that "if you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose -- you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down." Bennett quickly added that such an idea would be "an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do." But, he said, "your crime rate would go down."

8. That did happen - but not wednesday - a while back.
He apologized for it as well, although that doesn't make too much difference with a comment like that.

15. you're right - Randi replayed the Bennett clip a few minutes ago.
Edited on Wed Feb-08-06 03:53 PM by Chimichurri
I thought that's what this thread was about - apparently I missed the Rush comment. What a pig he is!

7. Just when you think he can't go any lower
and didn't he call those speaking at the funeral "classless?"

He is an asshole.

13. I am boiling . . .
Rush Limbaugh has made so much money . . .

Why does he stay on air and do this kind of thing? I don't understand. What did black people ever do to this man? How many millions will it take to appease him? Can he be appeased? I feel like I've been popped in the face. Two thousand six, and we still have to listen to this kind of shit . . .

This is my country, too.

Why would you let anything he says get to you? I don't give a flying fuck what he thinks or says on any matter, and it's beneath me to waste even one second on being riled up about it.

Nice handle.

It's great you're so composed, but that doesn't mean others don't have a right to be offended by his remarks, especially given their extremity.

53. Perhaps it's because he's reinforcing and validating the worst natures
of millions of listeners and that affects millions of other people directly - in their every day lives. The OP has every right to be upset.

52. Rush is a racist all day every day he gets on the air
You could write a book the size of Bill Clinton's "My Life" on the racist hateful spew that comes out of his mouth. I would love to see the CBC and/or the NAACP start cracking down on his execrable mouth.

The last time I listened to a portion of his show he called Brown University "Tootsie Roll" University twice and referred to Oprah Winfrey as "The Oprah" at least 15 times. He never used her proper name, only referred to her as an object or a thing.

I believe that a certain percentage of rwingers are racists and bigots, and I could see where Limpaws would cater to them.

23. I know what you mean
I was in training for recertification on Monday, and I sat beside another pest control tech and we got talking. When I told him where I worked, he said, "Oh, where the Klan is-" and rattled off an address. He was from another town about 90 miles away, and he had the zip code correct. I looked at him and then said, "Yeah, it's something most folks are ashamed of. When my boss hired an African American to help us one summer, he gave orders that if any customer objected, we would drop that customer immediately." Guy shut up.


(And the fellow worked for us until his college classes started and we didn't have to give up one customer!)

21. Randi links to a Rush transcript. Here it is:
"RUSH: We've got a little office pool going on here, folks, and I wanted to share it with you, regarding the funeral. First, when's it going to end? The other things that we're looking at -- who's in the house? You've got Bill Clinton, you've got the Reverend Jackson, and you have Teddy Kennedy, and those are just the known culprits. I'm sure that there are others who fit the mold. They're all in the House. So here's the little office pool that we have going here. Here you might want to have your own version of this in your office or your home today. The end of the funeral, when it's all over, how many women will be picked up? The next question we're asking ourselves, how many babies will be born nine months from today? I mean, you've got Bill Clinton in there; you've got Jesse Jackson and Teddy Kennedy -- and the next question we're asking, "Will a car fail to negotiate a bridge somewhere in Georgia late tonight, and if so, who will have been driving?"

would be of interest, considering who or what the stimuli turned out to be?

50. Drug addict Rush Limibaugh, whose hero is an alcoholic and drunk driver,
and not to mention his hero's wife killed an ex boyfriend in an auto "accident" when she ran a stop sign while coming home from a party (while drunk, possibly?) makes constant jokes about Ted Kennedy for drinking and driving and causing an accident in which someone was killed?

Like somehow Rush is better than him?

26. Maybe it has to do with his frustration with his three failed marriages...
...none of which ever produced a child.

I bet he can't even get it up for Daryn, who is technically a hottie.

Rush, just admit it. Come on out and be yourself. I hear Gannon the Cannon is single these days. You'd be a wonderful couple.
