From today's Rush Limbaugh radio show, in which the Big Guy comments on the recent hate crime at the US Holocaust Museum, in which an 88 year white supremacist shot dead an African American security guard who was holding the door open for him:
"Well, who did he hate? He hated both Bushes. He hated neocons. He hated John McCain. He hated Republicans. He hated Jews, as well. He believed in an inside job conspiracy of 9-11. This guy is a leftist, if anything. This guy's beliefs, this guy's hate stems from influence that you find on the left, not on the right"
More pretzel logic, Rush. Obama calls for world racial harmony and gives a speech commemorating the victims of the Holocaust, so we should blame Obama when a white supremacist runs amok in a Holocaust Museum. Come again? Von Brunn also hates blacks. I find it interesting that you chose to not mention that fact. Is that an inconvenient truth in the light of the fact that Obama is biracial? Von Brunn was probably disappointed that Republican politicians were not radical enough for him, not willing to head for the fringes. If so, it is a belief that Limbaugh has at times shared.
Allow me to explain in short words that even you can understand, Rush. White supremacy is a belief system associated with the extreme fringe elements of the right wing. You are not going to find any white supremacist liberals, it just ain't gonna happen. You are going to find a few liberals who are strongly critical of Israeli efforts to take over the West Bank of palestine through the settlement movement, and Obama is one of them. That is not anti-semitism, that is what we call the rule of law.
You can disavow personal responsibility for the Holocaust Museum shooting, and I will readily believe that you did not provide written instructions. The thing of it is, Barack the Magic Negro songs do tend to fall into this heading of racial stereotypes that feed extremism. And back in the day, you thought that was really amusing. And you go on and on about the outrageous "jokes" that Letterman spouted about Bristol Palin. I readily agree, it was in horribly poor taste and the Palins have every right to complain. But back in 1993, you joked that the Clintons had a cat called Socks and a dog too (showing a photograph of Chelsea who was 13 at the time) so where's your beef?
I'm not sure why I am bothering to deconstruct your rants anymore. At this point those who still support you are not capable of objectivity, and those who have given up on you as a human being do not need any validation from me. But really, can't you do any better than this? Why are right wing killers always mentally ill and totally unrelated to politics, but leftists who get verbally ugly but do not kill are always malicious and premeditated and totally in control of their messages? They are never like us, we are a different species. There's the ultimate in racism. The same rules do not apply.
