i fail to see anything nor heard anything from YOUR sources that would suggest Limbaugh a racist. But what I did hear, is that he identified within his comments about the Unconstitutional social welfare programs that are in FACT a burden on the tax payer. I heard that. But apparently you chose to mis that huh? Didn't fit your argument did it?


Then you indeed failed


Wanna talk about your unconstitutional social welfare program or other social programs which you benefit from, make a thread and we can chat about them.

dude, nothing in those videos are racists.

we all said yes, we watched the videos, though i guess you aren't reading our responses because its been repeated several times. just because you desperately want to label Rush a racist doesn't make him a racists. And I find it odd that you say you listen to him all the time yet you clearly despise him. not sure I believe you on that one because that doesn't make sense.

all it looks like you did was a quick google on 'rush racist' and posted it here, lol

also i notice you got real quiet when someone posted about Rush having a black pastor do his wedding and having black friends.

let me ask you something, if I tell or hear a racial joke and then laugh at it does that make me a racist? because this has happened, even jokes about my ethnicity, but i still laugh at them. so does that make me a racist against my own race?

let me guess, you are a Democrat? lol

clearly this sensitive PC bull of viewing the world has got to go.

For you to assume with your generalizations that I submit to unconstitutional social programs is absurd. Why would I argue or bring up the very lack of constitutionality of those programs, and collect at the same time. It would go against the things I wish to decry.

Your generalizations further solidify that your arguments hasn't any merit. But your trolling efforts earned you Two thumbs up!





ETA: anyone who claims they listen to Rush, and despise what he says, is either confused in reality, and cant decipher what he/she wants to believe, or tries to make an argument out of nothing, all for attention, in hopes to instigate an argument. How bout present viable sources, substantial evidence, facts perhaps, that would suggest that your argument holds water. If not, carry on smartly to the nearest library and educate yourself for once.

So...In response to the claim that the media has portrayed the Tea Party as racist by singling out the ever so rare racist individuals amongst the protesters....

You post video's of the ever so rare african americans attending Tea Partys.

...anyone see the irony?

lets try this..

Just recently in Tennessee the Tea Party officially demanded that ..



Tennessee Tea Parties demand textbooks contain no mean things about Founding Fathers

The material calls for lawmakers to amend state laws governing school curriculums, and for textbook selection criteria to say that

“No portrayal of minority experience in the history which actually occurred shall obscure the experience or contributions of the Founding Fathers, or the majority of citizens, including those who reached positions of leadership."

Fayette County attorney Hal Rounds, the group's lead spokesman during the news conference, said the group wants to address

"an awful lot of made-up criticism about, for instance, the founders intruding on the Indians or having slaves or being hypocrites in one way or another."

www.salon.com...

Ahhem...OK...the founding fathers didn't intrude on Indians or own slaves and there will be no teaching of the "minority experience" in America that claims the same.

You can't make this crap up...

Or how about another recent Tea Party triumph....RE-Segregating schools!! No I am not kidding.

Republican school board in N.C. backed by tea party abolishes integration policy
www.washingtonpost.com...

Or the infamous open letter By Mark Williams to the NAACP when he was head of the Tea Party express..


Dear Mr. Lincoln

We Colored People have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!


wrightandleftreport.com...

Or how about instead of chasing down the lone black person at a Tea Party Rally to talk to we look at actual research and statistics...maybe a joint poll by the New York times and CBS?


Eighteen percent of Americans identify as Tea Party supporters. The vast majority of them -- 89 percent -- are white. Just one percent is black.

www.cbsnews.com...

I will give you this...not all TP members are racist...but most of them want to repeal the civil rights act which Rand Paul has not been shy about calling for.

The Constitution? Do you actually believe the Tea Party gives a tiny rat's a$$ about that? Most of these idiots couldn't even spell Preamble, much less know what that is.

And where were these yahoos when Bush was spending us into this hole? So you are telling me that they all just woke up on November 4th, 2008 and said 'hey! I'm mad as hell at all this spending!'

And I'm supposed to believe that no one in the Tea Party is racist, even though it's fairly obvious there is a serious lack of diversity in it's ranks? Please.

Your vehement denial about the racism that is so apparent with some of the participants makes your every statement suspect.

So because there are white people it's racist?

I like that logic.. It works.

I never mentioned that they were white, you did. If you have what is supposed to be a truly dichotomous group, ie, one that 'represents the people,' and that group is comprised almost totally of one 'race,' then yeah, probably some racism going on.

That is not what America looks like, not now, not ever.

You do realize that the Tea Party is actually grass roots, deep rooted people of all classes. You do understand that the MSM demonized the Tea Party because they see the TP as competition.

You do realize that the Tea Party was dead before it ever hit the airwaves? You do realize it was infiltrated very early, if it wasn't just created, by Corporations, for Corporations? Grass roots by Monsanto.

It's really a fun amalgam of militia groups, extreme right wingers, deep south racists, and multinational corporations. Plus old people who still think that one day they'll be rich enough to dodge their taxes.

They are destroying the viability of the Republican party, which is not good for the health of American Politics,

What percentage of your party affiliation can spell "preamble" much less recite said pramble, much, much less actually know what it means?

And your viable sources to substantiate your claims is where? Ohhh thats right, your arguments are baseless and have no merit...emotionally driven responses solve nothing.

Which part are you classifying as 'emotionally driven'? And you are correct, I provided no 'proof.' I'll call my local racist elderly militia Monsanto representative and have him fax over their mandate...

I have no problem with that. I never thought the Tea Party was "all" racists.

Just like not all people who need government help are lazy. Just like not all public workers are living high off the hog. Just like not all Mexicans are illegal. Just like not all black Presidents are socialists muslims. Just like not everyone needs to show their birth certificate because a bunch of loons want to see it. Just like not all media megastars personally insult the first lady and her children. Just like not all republicans want to do away with social programs. Just a lot of them.

If you agree with that then I will agree not all Tea Party folks are racists.

Deal?

I've read your responses. I simply disagree with them. Making fun of how someone talks based on race is...ta da da da...racist



just because you desperately want to label Rush a racist doesn't make him a racists.

No but the fact that he is a racist, makes him a racist.


And I find it odd that you say you listen to him all the time yet you clearly despise him.

How can you know your opponent if you don't study him?
This bit of advice goes for almost everything in life.


not sure I believe you on that one because that doesn't make sense.

See above as it does actually make sense



all it looks like you did was a quick google on 'rush racist' and posted it here, lol

That's all it takes as it's so easy to find racist comments by rush



also i notice you got real quiet when someone posted about Rush having a black pastor do his wedding and having black friends.

Actually I commented on that little fact. I said something along the lines of, " he likes blacks as long as they know their place". But thanks for playing



let me ask you something, if I tell or hear a racial joke and then laugh at it does that make me a racist?

YEP. You might not be a racist along the same lines as the new black panthers or KKK but you aint mother theresa either.


because this has happened, even jokes about my ethnicity, but i still laugh at them. so does that make me a racist against my own race?

Yep.


let me guess, you are a Democrat? lol

Nope ! I've found both parties have failed the people of the United States of America and neither should be in office and many of them should be investigated.
Just as example, I consider nancy pelosi to be an enemy of the state -An enemy of the state is a person accused of certain crimes against the state, such as treason. -
for refusing to impeach bush and company for a myriad of war crimes including mass murder, extraordinary rendition, torture, illegal wiretapping, etc..
So am I a democrat??? Far from it!

Any other questions?

You benefit from social programs and you don't even know it

Thus proving your have no idea what you're talking about.
Why don't you look up a few things, think about what you've written, and get back to me once you've realized how wrong you are.

I'll wait

And if you're looking for a specific lie told by good ole drug addicted rush, here's an easy one.

He's stated on the air that business owners have to pay into unemployment but cannot collect unemployment which apparently upsets him.

This is actually not true as business owners can collect limited unemployment. Whereas a worker may collect generally up to 26 weeks, a business owner can typically collect 7-7.5 weeks.

So with all rush's resources, do you actually think something this big slipped past his handlers and himself?
Of course not
Just another lie told by rush to push his masters' agenda

so everyone else who has seen those videos agrees they are not racist. have you ever considered that the rest of us are correct on that assessment. and just maybe your own logic is skewed?

actually from reading your replies i'm wondering if you even know what logic is.

that is total baloney! so you really think a white racist would have black friends and let a black man marry him. does that really make sense to you? really?

and the remark about 'as long as they know their place!!!!!! what is that all about? wow, talk about making assumptions to fit your theory. its laughable.




let me ask you something, if I tell or hear a racial joke and then laugh at it does that make me a racist?

Yep.


WRONG! that is the problem with you super sensitive PC types. you can't distinguish between true racism and humor, for one example. if you think that telling a joke like this is racist, then 98% of all comedians would be charged with hate crimes


and this response you gave i think pretty much solves the mystery to the way you think and why you want to believe Rush is racist. you can't differentiate between parody and real life. if that is your problem I'm guessing you are from a foreign culture and 'just don't get American culture' or you are mentally handicapped.




let me guess, you are a Democrat? lol

i actually agree with you on that part. but let me guess.... you voted for Barrack Obama.

i caught you lying earlier, that was such BS that you listen to Rush on a regular basis because you want to 'know your enemy'. lolololol. c'mon dude, really! i'm not buying it, so when you lie and say you didn't vote for Obama I'm not going to believe that either.

you are just trolling and its obvious.
