Limbaugh: Obama Promotes Only Those Who Hate White People

Today on his radio show Rush Limbaugh claimed that Barack Obama is making white people the new oppressed minority. He said, “How do you get promoted in a Barack Obama administration, by hating white people.” Rush seems to have forgotten that 8 of the 9 Supreme Court Justices are white, and that Obama himself is half white.

Here is the audio from Media Matters:

Limbaugh said, “We have made progress in civil rights, but now with this. How do you get promoted in a Barack Obama administration, by hating white people, or even saying you do, or that their not good, or whatever. Make white people the new oppressed minority and they are going along with it, because their shutting up. They’re moving to the back of the bus. They’re saying I can’t use that drinking fountain, ok. I can’t use that restroom, ok. That’s the modern day Republican Party, the equivalent of the Old South, the new oppressed minority.”

After saying that race doesn’t matter, Rush called Sotomayor a racist, “I care about whether she’s qualified, and I think she’s disqualified herself. Not only does she lack the often-discussed appropriate judicial temperament, it’s worse than that. She brings a form of bigotry or racism to the court. I don’t care — we’re not supposed to say it, we’re supposed to pretend it didn’t happen, we’re supposed to look at other things, but it’s the elephant in the room. ”

This is such a preposterous argument. Rush is complaining that white people are an oppressed minority because only 7 of the 9 Supreme Court Justices will be white if Sotomayor is confirmed. Notice how, Limbaugh is throwing a temper tantrum because the Republican Party is not following his advice. Senate Republicans aren’t going to go down the racial path on this one. They may vote against her based on philosophical opposition, but they don’t think that she is a racist.

Limbaugh’s whole argument is based on the warping of Sotomayor’s wise Latina quote. There is no evidence that she is a racist. Rush’s notion that the GOP should be the party of white rights is a continuation of what we saw in the 2008 campaign. The advocates of the white rights strategy seem to forget that Obama is half white himself. They show their own racism, when they project racist motives on to the president.

  1. Rash is so iritating!! Its people like him that cause racism. He should have his hands slaped for being such an ignorant and pompus pig

  2. You all can work yourselves into a frenzy if you want to, but Rush is right.

    Try keeping your mouths shut and watch what happens over the next three years.
    Good luck America.

  3. Dude you agree with Rush??I Guess you are just as ignorant as him. Your probably some neo-nazi hiter loving scumbag.

  4. Despite weather or not you agree with Rush, “I do” being able to speak your mind is why we are still the most powerful and hated country in the world.
    If you want to get down to the nitty gritty then think about what is truly racist; ie: NCAA, African American month, and BET. You left wing socialists “or Obamaites as I like to call you” would rather have our First amendment right stripped away and then convince our children that you are right by giving a presidential speech to them in the classroom ” Ohh, wait, you are planning on doing that one on Tuesday”.

  5. In this country now days other races cant be considered racist. Your only Racist if your a white person. Its true look at the majority of people losing thier jobs, their white. The majority of people receiving wellfare and other federal aid are other races. News flash for all of you liberal idiots we know you hate the white “minority” eventhough you act like your taking the higher road, yeah right! We all know you do quit pretending you don’t. Being a white man nowadays sucks you cant voice your oppinion without some group being pissed off and everyone else is entitled white men owe them. Kiss my A##

  6. @, the reason why iz b-cuz whites are more racist than anybody.May b cuz whites will 4-ever b known as the race that steals countries,cultures,inventions,the killer of millions and 4-ever wil be the opressor,and persecutors and ignorant 2 cultures they don’t agree with.Whites owe MANY races things.Did I mention the creator of racism?Every1 iz capable of being a racist.Asians,Native Americans,Blacks,Hispanics,Arabs and Jews aren’t the supreme wannabes.

  7. @, I don’t hate whites I just wished they treat others like human,they treat everybody as second-class citizens,I’m hispanic by the way.

  8. I guess things have gone full circle. Poor whites left Europe because they hated the white people governing them. Every new white was hated by the old white. Then they got together to hate all the other colors. There is strength in numbers. Then something strange happened. Some whites started to like some of those other colors as well as there own. We became more than just colors or ideologies, we became people. Americans have the right to say anything they want. What I hear now is fear, hate and confusion. Just spoiled bitter children who didn’t learn from history. Such devisive talk is completely incendiary. Usually when whites are this mad about taxes and race there is a war to follow. But, the only enemy now is within. I guess you can all go back to Europe if it is so bad here. Now,stop with the BS and lies and resist letting your glaring insecurities show so damned much.

  9. fuck all white conservative republican hate mongering shit heads. fuck sarah palin because she is fucking stupid and retarded, glenn beck is a fat ass motherfucker, bill o’reilly is such a moron, all you asshole bible thumping whiteskinned, can all stick your bible up your ass and twist it sideways.

  10. @, So, can you somehow present evidence that I want the first amedment stripped away? Or are you just pissing in the wind?

    BTW, how is that “palinite” plan to repeal the 17th amendment going?

  11. @, Rush is right? LOL! I dont think so.

    Its just another flinging lie from the person that cant move his lips without lying.
    Have a good trip wherever you are going.

  12. Coming from a large extended family that includes Asians, Latinos, blacks, and whites, I judge people by what they do and say, not what they are. Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and company represent only a segment of white people, and they are the low-information ones that these folks appeal to. It is a testimony to their own fears and insecurities that they perpetuate and encourage this nonsense. The world around them is changing constantly, becoming more and more racially diverse. They simply cannot deal with it, and President Obama is the main representative of what they fear and hate.

    Rand Paul vocalized what people like him think but are afraid to say in public. Actually, I appreciate knowing what he thinks because he can do nothing to alter the fact that he made such inflammatory, irresponsible remarks which no one will ever forget. People like Rush Limbaugh are as racist as they come, but they like to project their hatred onto other people. Both of them practice tactics that are both intellectually dishonest and morally bankrupt.

  13. i am a white hispanic,, and all i have to say watch you calling someone nigger you white trash for north carolina,,,, theres more trash here than the staten island dump in new york,,, fuck you!!!
