Rush Limbaugh's Racist Rant on 'Obama's America'


Belleville, Illinois a town with a sordid history of racial tension including cross-burning and racial discrimination by police and hiring businesses.

During his commentary on an incident that took place on a Belleville school bus, Limbaugh made a few statements that leave room for question.

The incident took place Tuesday when a group of black children beat up a white child on a school bus, according to the Belleville police captain Don Sax. After investigation, Sax said “the incident appears now to be more about a couple of bullies on a bus dictating where people sit.”

Limbaugh, however, felt differently about “Obama’s America.” On his show yesterday, he spoke about the incident in a manner that would suggest he maybe just a little bit racist.

“It’s Obama’s America, is it not?  Obama’s America, white kids getting beat up on school buses now,” he said. “You put your kids on a school bus, you expect safety but in Obama’s America the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering, ‘Yay, right on, right on, right on, right on,’ and, of course, everybody says the white kid deserved it.”

He then went on to sarcastically question weather Obama was going to step up an defend the black children on the school bus as he did Henry Louis Gates Jr.

“I wonder if Obama is going to come to the defense the assailants the way he did his friend Skip Gates up there at Harvard. I mean the assailants are presumed innocent due to the white racism we all know runs rampant in America,” he said. 

“The Drive-By Media is ginning up all this criticism of Obama.  Again today it’s all based in racism, the criticism of Obama’s health care plan or whatever, it’s all based in racism and so, if he’s going to apologize for America, Obama needs to apologize for the right reasons.  White Americans are racists who have created what they call free markets that really just enslave the rest of America and her trading partners.”

Limbaugh said that not all issues facing America are rooted in racism and he believes that with open conversation, racial tensions could come to an end.

“Let’s have an open conversation, an honest conversation about all of our typical white grandmothers. You had one, I had one. Obama had one. They’re racists just like our students are.”

“ACORN, hey, nothing but racism fueling the pursuit of ACORN. Greetings, folks.  How are you? (interruption) What do you mean you can’t look at everything through a racial prism? Obama does. And his media is looking at everything through a racial prism. The left looks at everything through a racial prism.  Hey, they hit us; we hit back twice as hard.”

With an attitude that clearly displays a hint of cynicism that refuses to admit racism still exists in America and that he might just be one of them, and “open and honest conversation’ will be of no use.

Limabugh, along with Congressman Joe Wilson and a massive number of American people, have got to

    I listen to Rush, and this article is almost completely false when it tries to represent the nature and contexts of what Rush is saying. Being black is something that he will never understand, but he does not claim to, and from what I hear day after day, he is absolutely not this radical racist old white man that you have probably heard him described as (much like this article portrays him as). This article mixed up Rush’s words so badly that I can’t believe that this person is allowed to write for HHW. I would also wonder how someone with such horrible grammar and sentence structure was ever given a position where his or her words were read by someone other then themselves.

    I don’t think that these kids should be prosecuted by the FBI for a “hate crime”, which whenever the crime is motivated by race, a crime is then investigated by the feds….. The phrase “hate crime” is ridiculous anyways see how hate is a motivator for almost all crimes.

    Even if the situation was reversed (white kids beating up a black kid) the country would be in an uproar and we would be having almost the same conversation the only difference is the media tends to lean in favor of liberalism and therefore would cover it in a way that would hold whites solely responsible for racism, as opposed to how they should have to explain this event by acknowledging that racism exists among all race. . . This, just like all of the fights on school buses everyday, should be handled within the community and if possible within the local school system.
