Rush Limbaugh is continuing to make headlines for his disparaging comments, this time for insisting that The President “created” the recession as payback for racism.

On the July 2nd edition of his radio show, racist Rush was quoted saying that President Obama let the economy crumble as payback for years of racial oppression.

“It’s payback time. All you people who are unemployed it’s time for you to find out what it’s been like to be an American….you’re gonna find out what it’s been like for 200 years for some of us. It’s payback time. That’s what’s going on here.”

In addition to the recession, Rush references J. Christian Adams; the former justice official that claims the Obama administration failed to prosecute non-Whites in voter intimidation cases and cited a dismissed case against the New Black Panthers as an example.

According to Rush, the 2008 New Black Panther party case is just another form of payback much like the recession.

“So in this interview with J. Christian Adams yesterday talking about [how] he and his line attorneys were told to just drop the case against the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation in Philadelphia, he said that there were people in the office, DOJ, who said, ‘Well, you know, those people suffered the indignity of slavery, discrimination, segregation and so forth.’ This is payback,’ meaning, ‘All right, look. We don’t care if it’s the New Black Panthers or whoever it is. Black people in this country have never, ever had a fair shake. This is payback…”

Not only that, but Rush also says that the O.J. Simpson trial was a repayment for racism as well.


“O.J. Simpson was payback. How does it feel?’ That word ‘payback’ is not mine, [but] it is exactly how I think Obama looks at the country: It’s payback time… There’s no question that payback is what this administration is all about, presiding over the decline of the United States of America, and doing so happily.”

Mind you this is the same show where he was quoted “speculating” whether Michelle Obama’s “authentic slave blood” kept her from attending the funeral of Senator Robert Byrd.
