Like the USSC, I know Obscenity when I see it. I see it here:
You will know who said these things. They are documented; you can get the audio and video from YouTube and all over the internet, if you so desire. But nobody raises a peep about this, and now this ... drug-addled blowhard ... is the de facto leader of the Republican party. Well, e-freaking-golldang-nuff, say I.
And I'm not alone. I didn't compile the list below. The person who did is a professional opinion poll designer and operator. The list is on the front page of his business's website:
1. I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.
2. You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed.
3. Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?
4. Right. 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.
5. Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.
6. The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.
7. They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?
8. Take that bone out of your nose and call me back(to an African American female caller).
9. I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They’re interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there’s a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he really didn’t deserve.
10. Limbaugh has called Obama a ‘halfrican American’ has said that Obama was not black but Arab because Kenya is an Arab region, even though Arabs are less than one percent of Kenya. Since mainstream America has become more accepting of African-Americans, Limbaugh has decided to play against its new racial fears, Arabs and Muslims. Despite the fact Obama graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law school, Limbaugh has called him an ‘affirmative action candidate.’ Limbaugh even has repeatedly played a song on his radio show ‘Barack the Magic Negro’ using an antiquated Jim Crow era term for black a man who many Americans are supporting for president.
Finally let me add that during the 2006 election, Limbaugh thought that Sherrod Brown was African American based on his name and he accused the Democrats in Ohio of being behind his candidacy because he was black. To this day, not a single reporter ever confronted Limbaugh about this.
Yes. It is time.
If you are in a business where Limbaugh is on the radio, walk out. Don't buy anything. (In Lubbock, Texas, that pretty much means you're going to end up in stores with no radio. I can live with that.) Do let the store manager know why you're leaving, and that as long as Limbaugh is played to a captive audience (customers) you won't be back.
I wish I were a lawyer. There must be some legal means of breaking this monopoly on the radio. There must be some legal means of showing that this "entertainer" is in fact nothing of the sort.
