These Ain't Dog Whistles: Limbaugh Goes on Scathing Racist Attack
Call me naive, but I'm surprised at how Rush Limbaugh has dropped all pretext of political correctness and gone for the most overtly racist language I've seen in my lifetime in a high profile race. I would never underestimate the right's willingness to use dog-whistle politics. But I thought the days were gone when they would toss the whistle aside and start screaming racist shit into the airwaves.
Of course, Limbaugh wants us to fight back in order to amplify his message and further divide the electorate along racial lines. So, I won't be calling for a boycott or demanding that John McCain condemn Limbaugh or anything. But it is still alarming to see this resurgence of racism from such a prominent source. I guess it's not okay to say this stuff about the Rutger's basketball team, but it's just peachy to say it about the Democratic nominee for president.
