The 20 Most Racist Things Rush Limbaugh Has Ever Said

We take a look back at Limbaugh's unabashed racism.

Continued from previous page


On September 15, 2009, while riffing on a story of a beating on a school bus, Rush  said:

Obama's America, white kids getting beat up on school buses now. I mean, you put your kids on a school bus, you expect safety. But in Obama's America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering "Yay! Right on, right on, right on, right on."

On June 22, 2009, Rush  described Obama's entire economic plan as "reparations":

What they don't know is that Obama's entire economic program is reparations. If I were [Al] Sharpton, if I'd been guest-hosting Sharpton's show and I got a call like that, somebody complaining, I'd say "Hey hey hey, shhh. Let me tell you the truth here. Everything in the stimulus plan, every plan he's got is reparations."

On June 26, 2009, reading off a column from  American Thinker, Rush  said:

I share all this with you because it is -- she's nailed who the guy is. Americans look at Obama and they say, "Oh, the first black president," and they go, "Oh, we're shedding some of our guilt here. Look how enlightened we are, what a great country we are," when, in fact, we've elected somebody who's more African in his roots than he is American, loves his father, who was a Marxist, and is behaving like an African colonial despot.

On February 10, 2010, Limbaugh  attacked Obama as "uppity":

When Clarence Thomas said uppity black thinks for himself means he's off the reservation, so to speak. He's not following the civil rights speech codes set forth by the Reverend Jackson and Al Sharpton and whoever else is in charge of them. But nobody -- Obama is uppity, but not as a black. He is an elitist. He does think he's smarter and better than everybody else. That's what he was taught. He's a Harvard man.

On October 17, 2011, Limbaugh  said of Obama's economic plan:

There's rioting in the streets now! And there's going to be more rioting in the streets because that's part of the program here. And next up there are going to be race riots, I guarantee it. Race riots are part of the plan that this regime has. That's next.
