Rush Leading Them Wrong…Again!

rush-limbaugh-jpeg

We shall overcome the anger and hatred.  We shall overcome the ignorant, and bellicose.

I thought that there was a modicum of decency with regard to how to behave when the check is due.  Apparently, a portion of our population prefers to act like the scarred rabbits that they are!  Rush Limbaugh has decided that he needed to add his own match to the dry tinder of twigs that sit under the caldron of our great melting pot.  True to the fear mongering and race baiting Mr. Limbaugh has decided that he can play a minstrel by deciding to air a “parody” that was in the poorest of taste.  Furthermore, the scared creature that he is Mr. Limbaugh hides behind an African American writer of the Los Angeles Times to defend his own bad judgment.  That is like saying I only threw rocks because he was throwing them.  One can reasonably expect that he might give some thought to the offensiveness of the material that he airs.  (Then again why should he, he is only a symptom of a larger disease… racism!)  

 

 

Adding insult to injury is this article:   http://thehill.com/leading-the-news/rnc-candidate-distributes-controversial-obama-song-2008-12-26.html:  See quote below.

 

 

“Tennessee Republican RNC candidate Chip Saltsman’s Christmas greeting to committee members includes a music CD with lyrics from a song called “Barack the Magic Negro,” first played on Rush Limbaugh’s popular radio show.  Saltsman, a personal friend of conservative satirist Paul Shanklin, sent a 41-track CD along with a note to national committee members…The CD, called “We Hate the USA,” lampoons liberals with such songs as “John Edwards’ Poverty Tour,” “Wright place, wrong pastor,” “Love Client #9,” “Ivory and Ebony” and “The Star Spanglish banner.”

(I WONDER WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN SMOKING?!)

Wow there is a whole barrel of reconciliation in Mr. Saltsman’s missive to his fellow Republicans.  That message seems to be full steam ahead rallying the scarred rabbits with we will never change, we are the party of divisiveness.  Is this really the way to solve our problems? 

 

 

We should not be at war with each other, when we have a so much danger in our midst.  We are living through one of the greatest crisis that has ever faced our nation, while fighting two wars.  We are spending 12 billion dollars every month (close to one trillion total) in Iraq while Bob Corker and the Republicans fret over 14 Billion to save General Motors and the American auto industry.  That is too many workers unable to pay mortgages.  How is that going to stimulate the economy?   The Soviet Union collapsed while only fighting one war, because they never took care of their own people. We are in a world of hurt and the National Review says go shopping.

Even more amazing writer Mark Steyn claims that European leaders have this message “If you crass, vulgar Americans don’t ramp up the demand, we’re kaput. Unless you get back to previous levels of planet-devastating consumption, the planet is screwed”.  Wow, they are old outdated Europeans when there is a war the neocons want but want them as allies when it fits the needs of big business.  Go shopping, spend money, hmm where have we heard that line before?   Oh yeah, from President Bush in 2006, “The unemployment rate has remained low, at 4.5 percent. A recent report on retail sales shows a strong beginning to the holiday shopping season across the country — and I encourage you all to go shopping more”.

So that’s it then scare people, encourage divisiveness and get the people to open their wallets and charge it, is this really the conservative’s strategy for America!

  1. This was meant to be humor, pure and simple. You liberals are all alike. You look for problems under every rock.

  2. Susan,

    First, I am not a liberal in the traditional sense of the word. I had been member of the RNC for thirty-two years from 1972 to 2004. I have consistently voted Republican in every election until now. I donated considerable time and money to the Republican Party. Events of recent years have deeply shaken my belief in the party. This revelation was over a period of several years.

    I have seen the look on the faces of the oppressed on four continents. I know an insult when I hear it. The Bully always thinks that his/her offense is funny. The bully also uses labels to inflict harm. Susan there are real problems in this world, less divisiveness would be a blessing…..”pure and simple”.

    As far as looking under “rocks”, well that would be better than focusing on Little Rock. It occurs to me that’s what happened when Bill Clinton was our President. Seems Republicans looked under more than rocks. Read David Brock for more information on the ways one can dig up dirt real or imagined.

    Let us work together… Barack Obama our President Elect has set the example, he has appointed people to his cabinet based on qualifications regardless of party affiliation.

  3. There is no humor in racism and being ignorant. I strongly believe that we need to not throw stones especially since we do not want them thrown at us. We should give President-Elect Obama a chance.

  4. You know my sentiments over this subject. But let me just add that I too feel that what Rush is doing is what has been doing through out the whole primary/general election, playing the racist card. When it was Hillary/Obama he could not stand the thought of a woman coming into power. Then when it was McCain/Obama he could not stand the thought of a black man coming into power.

    He is pathetic and more and more weak minded people listen to his boorish rhetoric. Remember the likes of Rush is no different than fox fake news. Remember superdave? He dared to tell me that when he could not get fox fake news he could not understand the news. How utterly sad and pathetic.
