New Yorkers were saddened to learn, yesterday, of the death of Yankees owner, George Steinbrenner, but perhaps Rush Limbaugh said it worst when he remarked, "That cracker helped make a lot of African Americans millionaires." HERE'S WHAT: Do you think Rush Limbaugh finds comfort in the fact that when he eventually dies, there will be nobody capable of saying anything about it who is nearly as stupid as he is?
C'mon now. here's what really happended. Rush was commenting on the black panthers video where the guy who was intimidating voters with the billy club was screaming to the world that he wanted to kill all crackers and thier babies. Did you see that video? probably not. If you would like the link, please contact me.
Rush picked up the word cracker, in response to that video. Same as when Rush said Obama wouldnt have been elected because he was black. He said "that" because democrats were saying that Michael Steele wouldnt have been elected to head the RNC unless he was black. Also, it was the democrat Geraldine Ferraro who first said it, and it was Bill Clinton that said if he wasnt black he'd still be fetching coffee in the senate. Rush's comments are always taken out of context and broken down into very incendiary sound bits. get your facts straight before you comment.
"Rush's comments are always taken out of context and broken down into very incendiary sound bits. get your facts straight before you comment."
I listened to the audio. His remarks were in no way taken out of context. He was rude and racist and it was completely unnecessary. I for one will not mourn the passing of Rush when that day comes.
