Racist Rush Limbaugh At It Again: Paterson Gets to Play "Massa"
If this level of racism, by a minority radio commentator, was directed at white people there is no way in the world he would still be broadcasting. No way period! I don’t care what people say about the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. I don’t care what videos of Louis Farrakhan that Fox News drags out and airs every hour on the hour. If America was really post-racial then this fool would not have an audience. As it stands, Limbaugh is one of the most successful talk show host in the nation. He is spewing this crap on more than 600 radio stations. And some estimate, he is reaching between 12 and 20 million people. So why do people tolerate this crap? It’s because they think he’s funny. His racism is shared by them. Only, THEY can’t say it because society has deemed being an unabashed racist as being poor taste. So they have this fat, oxycontin-addicted barf bag spewing it for them. I suppose its cathartic.

Just in case you think I am exaggerating or you want to start working up an excuse for Limbag, here’s just the top 10 of his most racist quotes. When does freedom of speech cross the line and become paramount to yelling fire in a screaming building? Well I guess maybe if he went to Harlem and started broadcasing this shit.
2. “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.”
7.”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. “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.”
