    Limbaugh's Racist Shocker: "We Need Segregated Buses"

    Raw Story. Posted September 17, 2009.

    In a remark extraordinary even by the standards of his show, Rush Limbaugh said explicitly, Wednesday that the United States needed to return to racially segregated busing.

    In a remark extraordinary even by the standards of conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, the right-wing radio heavyweight declared on his program Wednesday that the United States needed to return to racially segregated buses.

    Referring to an incident in which a white student was beaten by black students on a bus, Limbaugh said: “I think the guy’s wrong. I think not only it was racism, it was justifiable racism. I mean, that’s the lesson we’re being taught here today. Kid shouldn’t have been on the bus anyway. We need segregated buses — it was invading space and stuff. This is Obama’s America.”

    A full transcript of Limbaugh’s comments on his radio show is available at MediaMatters.org.

    Limbaugh’s comments came after a called complained to say that local law enforcement said the attack probably wasn’t racially motivated. The incident had been hyped by the conservative Drudge Report, which posted a video of the fracas.

    “Police initially said the beating of the white student by two black students appeared to be racially motivated,” the Associated Press wrote. “But police on Tuesday backed away from that.”

    That didn’t stop Limbaugh from making his comments Wednesday.

    “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,” Limbaugh also said. “I wonder if Obama’s going to come to come to the defense of the assailants the way he did his friend Skip Gates up there at Harvard.”

    “White Americans are racists who have created what they call free markets that really just enslave the rest of America and her trading partners,” Limbaugh also mocked. “I mean, it was white Americans that ran off Van Jones. No, look, let’s just follow Eric Holder’s advice and not be cowards about all this. Let’s have an open conversation, an honest conversation about all of our typical white grandmothers. You had one, I had one. Obama had one. They’re racists just like our students are. ACORN — hey, nothing but racism fueling the pursuit of ACORN.”

    Limbaugh also suggested that racism itself was acceptable.

    “If homosexuality being inborn is what makes it acceptable, why does racism being inborn not make racism acceptable?” the talk show host asked. “I’m sorry — I mean, this is the way my mind works. But apparently now we don’t choose racism, we just are racists. We are born that way. We don’t choose it. So shouldn’t it be acceptable, excuse — this is according to the way the left thinks about things.”

    Dude, nobody wants to listen to that dumb-ass, and you're only doing this Cracker a favor by spreading around his sleaze.

    I actually listen to Rush everyday. He was being sarcastic when he said that. But of course, him being who he is, he is going to be taken out of context or his comments are going to be deliberately distorted by his adversaries. It comes with the territory.
