Don’t you find it strange that over the last ten months Rush Limbaugh has attacked mostly people of color. He talks about Hispanics and has openly muses that when he met Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa he thought he was a shoe shine guy. Yes, he has said negative things about Arlen Specter switching parties, but that is just anger from someone how just got jilted. I have listened to his show and sometimes he is entertaining and most of the time he appears to be at his racist best. You can catch him on the AM dial spewing his hate and discontent. He has attack Colin Powell saying that Powell only supports Barack Obama because he was black. I was wondering when Colin told him that, especially since Colin explained to the world why he chose to support Barack Obama. If that is Rush’s criteria for supporting individuals then it would be fair to assume that Rush only supports people who are white. Limbaugh has trashed Michael Steele another black person for calling him and “entertainer”, when Rush has called himself an entertainer, curious.
Rush is the Emininen of talk radio because he sparks controversy for attention, or ratings and he is a white male that usually picks on people who he knows are weaker then him. I mean really making fun of Michael J Fox and his Parkinson’s Disease, and that’s a show. Rush says whatever he wants then hides behind his party, mic, or the freedom of speech. This is a person who admittedly was hooked on Oxycontin (a street drug by the way) and was charged with doctor shopping, which means you have a serious problem. Apparently he is tired of using the accepted racial code word/phrases like “Socialist” (ooohhh), “Spade”, “Affirmative Action”. I don’t see how hoping, wishing, and praying that this administration fails helps anybody that is tantamount to being in a boat going towards the waterfall and refusing to pick up an oar to help row. But then again this is the same fellow who said “We’re discovering WMD’s all over Iraq!”
At the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Wanda Sykes‘ routine was funny and she is a comedian so why are people upset? Do they believe the propaganda that comes from the Limbaugh Show? Is Rush just saying the things that some would like to but are afraid to say? Rush can dish it out, the party can dish it out, but they can’t take it. It is about time people started to stand up and and think for themselves. I know it is a novel concept but talking advice and political positions from people who are obviously disturbed can’t be normal? If it is normal then it is only indicative of all the things wrong with the US. Now Rush is unleashing his newest racial code phrase “Forced Reparations”. Limbaugh you should just say what you really want to say. Why spend all of that mental energy coming up with ways to cover up how you really feel. Rush is clearly someone who hasn’t read my book or any book of substance because his ideas are antiquated. We don’t need censorship and it is everyone’s duty to combat ignorance. We don’t need a laundry list of facts and figures. We don’t need long drawn out articles from a media which has failed us pointing out who is right and who is wrong. And we definitely don’t need more hate. We need to hold people accountable.
Limbaugh is but one of many court jesters, who will probably call out Wanda but that would merely be one act calling out another. The ultimate test of whether or not your position is right is to see how it stand up in the face of the opposing view. I don’t mean the usual taking things out of context, or picking on sick people, or laughing at the misfortunes of others. Rush it is your show and you can have whoever you want on it. So why not invite Wanda. Invite Randi Rhodes. Hell, invite me ….we will all listen. Sometime you have to question your leaders even if they are de facto ones. Apparently Rush Limbaugh is not only out of ideas, he is out of Hope perhaps it isn’t strange at all.
