During one of his Obama is delusional rants on his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh let his racism slip out again. This time his target was Indians. Limbaugh said, “I don’t know if he really believes it, but if he does, we in heap big doo doo, a little Indian lingo there.”This comes from the same guy who once said that Indians should stop complaining, because they have casinos.
Here is the audio courtesy of Media Matters:
Limbaugh said, “Let me tell you something, the scariest thing when Obama told Oprah that he gave himself a B+ and went through all those reasons why, the economy is coming back, we kept ourselves out of Great Depression, the world loves us, if he really believes what he said, if he really believes what he said he’s accomplished, we are being led by a deeply delusional person. That’s scary, and I am dead serious about this. If he really believes it, I don’t know if he really believes it, but if he does, we in heap big doo doo, a little Indian lingo there.”
The joke about Indian lingo goes hand in hand with his rant against Native Americans in September.
Limbaugh said, “I am beginning to understand why Gadaffi’s translator collapsed. If I had to translate any of these people, I’d go nuts too. They make liars out of you, what is the holocaust, 90 million Indians, 4 million left. They all have casinos. What is there to complain about?”
This is why it is tad unbelievable to accept Limbaugh’s claims that he is not a racist. It is also interesting that Limbaugh managed to find something to be afraid of in the White House Christmas special that aired last night. Maybe Limbaugh’s real fear was based on the fact that there is an African American president?
The Christmas at the White House special was a fairly fluffy hour. There wasn’t anything controversial in it at all. I do have to admit that I was a little surprised that Obama gave himself a B+. I would grade his first year as more of C+ myself, which could move to a B+ depending on how healthcare turns out. Limbaugh somehow manage to turn a Christmas special into an attack on Obama and a racist joke about Native Americans.
