Rush Limbaugh proved his detractors right again on Tuesday by taking what amounts to a classless, race-baiting cheap-shot at a dead guy. In referencing the death of Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, El Rushbo said "That cracker made a lot of African-American millionaires" and he "...fired a bunch of white guys as managers right and left". One of many references HERE.
Mind you, this is coming from a guy who once said that President Obama is a man who "sees everything through a racial lens" (citation unavailable, as I actually heard this myself but I don't recall the date/time). Gee, just who is the one that actually sees everything, including death, through a racial lens? Ironic that this comes on the heels of race-baiting comments from the opposite extreme of the spectrum in the guise of Jesse Jackson.
I know, I know, the Limbaugh apologists will just laugh it off as Rush "just being Rush". My brother (and Limbaugh fan) likes to say that "you can't take everything Rush says seriously", which while true as a general statement fails in practical application, as many people actually DO take everything Rush says seriously. Yes, there are people who really do drink the Limbaugh cool aid; I remember when news broke of his little drug problem, there were more than a few callers into WILK who basically said that the whole story was fraudulent and made up. That's the crew that hangs on every word this guy says.
So congratulations to Rusty (as his mom liked to call him) for never failing to fail.
