Rush Limbaugh Claims Donald Sterling Would Be In The Clear If He Gave Money To Obama

Early on in his Monday radio broadcast, conservative blowhard Rush Limbaugh brought up the ongoing controversy surrounding Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Limbaugh claimed that Sterling is a “big Democrat” and that the only reason this is all a big deal is because “he did not give enough money to Obama.” The radio host also pointed out that he’s always known that Sterling was a racist and that any outrage displayed by major media outlets regarding Sterling’s comments is phony. Limbaugh’s major focus, though, was that Sterling is a lifelong Democrat and that his racist behavior is indicative of liberals and members of the Democratic Party.

Below is audio from Rush’s show courtesy of Media Matters:

 

 

First off, as soon as Sterling’s comments were made public, conservative media tried to set the narrative that Sterling is a big-time Democratic supporter who has donated large amounts of money to Democratic candidates. All of the usual candidates came out of the woodwork — National Review, The Daily Caller, Fox Nation, NewsBusters, Matt Drudge – so it only made sense that by the time Rush hit the air Monday, he’d sing the same tune. The only problem is that it really isn’t true.

Yes, Sterling, in the past, has donated money to Democratic candidates. However, besides a contribution to former Democratic California Governor Gray Davis in 2002, Sterling hasn’t made a  significant contribution to a Democrat in over 20 years. On top of that, since 1998, he has been registered as a Republican. Therefore, the conservative dream scenario where they got to flip racism on its head and call Democrats and liberals hypocrites for supporting a well-known and repugnant racist has blown up in their faces

Earlier Monday morning, we had a situation where cartoon character Donald Trump went on Fox News and basically defended Sterling and blamed everything on the “girlfriend from hell.” Now, later in the day, ‘Voice of the Republican Party’ Rush Limbaugh makes sure to somehow tie President Obama to all of this. Basically, his take on the situation is that Sterling is a big time Democratic donor. However, because he didn’t give much money to Barack Obama’s election efforts, the Democrats were willing to toss him in front of the bus and let him be exposed. Or something like that. Heck, this is Limbaugh’s version of reality we’re talking about.

  1. Since Rush feels money is what life itself is about , it is no wonder he believes such drivel. After all, it works for he and his ilk.
    Racism is what it is and Sterling has got the illness pretty badly . Excusing it ,or blaming it on others is a slippery slope to the same destination the racist is destined to inhabit!

  2. It has been checked, the racist is a registered republican.

    Old man rush must feel sympathy for him, after all he knows what it feels like to be deserted by sponsors.

  3. Rush and conservatives are dead on wrong. Sterling is actually a registered Republican. This is the month of conservative’s schadenfreude movement.

  4. Yeah, because President Obama is running again and needs cash? Just because you’re not as insane as Sarah doesn’t mean you don’t come off as an assault, Rush. You do. A big one.

  5. LA Clippers owner Don Sterling can win this public relations nightmare. He needs to deflect the racism allegations and counter with a solution for the existing state of outdated emergency evacuation for large, confined crowds.

    The federal government and the NBA, NFL, MLB, etc. refuse to tell fans that LEGITIMATE evacuation orders do NOT come from cell phones. You use the public address system. The reason being — that if the scenario were to unfold, it’s an attempt to induce an artificially generated stampede.

    Nobody’s willing to share this sensitive information due to the catch-22 (plausible deniability and potential litigation).

    Sterling could end up becoming an advocate for humanity. Ironic? Perhaps. But it’s a golden opportunity to cope with an inevitable, asymmetric national security issue.

  6. Why won’t Rush just EXPLODE ALREADY! Do us all a FAVOR AND JUST EXPLODE SO WE DON’T HAVE TO HEAR WHAT HIS LACK OF A BRAIN COMES UP WITH!

  7. LIMPMAN needs to focus on why he is losing his hearing. One of the MAJOR later in life reasons is TAKING HIGH LEVELS OF PAIN MEDICATION. Soon HE will no longer have to hear the lies and garbage he spews daily.

  8. When Rush opens his mouth do any of his 20 million listeners ever say, that does not make sense. I doubt it as his followers are just lemmings.

  9. RUSH YOU ARE A MORRON. YOU NEED TO WORRY ABOUT YOUR OWN RACIST ACTIONS. YES STERLING IS RACIST BUT YOU ARE KEEPING UP MESS. LEAVE OBAMA OUT OF THIS.

  10. Rush could stand a punch in his face/nose! No matter what happens in this country, racist people always find a way to blame Obama. Racism will never be a thing of the past in this country because, racism is taught in the home from generation to generation like a family heirloom. Racism is a sickness just like cancer, because it spreads but I thank GOD that my parents raised us better than that. You don’t have to go to the south in order to witness racism because it’s nation wide!
