Rush Limbaugh Refers To People Who Aren’t White, Working Families As ‘Losers In Life’ (AUDIO)

Author: November 30, 2011 4:19 pm

Rush Limbaugh is known for his inflammatory rhetoric, and race-baiting. He’s referred to President Obama many times as “Barack the magic negro,” and even went as far as to call the President and the First Lady “uppity.”

Limbaugh went into a tirade today, stating that Obama is abandoning the votes of “working, white families” in favor of the “losers in life.”

After rambling on for almost 2 minutes about it he then back-peddled and said that his comments were in no way racist.


Here’s the audio:

Do YOU think Rush Limbaugh’s comment is racist, or racially motivated?

  • Oh, for crying out loud… I am no fan of Rush Limbaugh, as I consider him to be a reactionary, hypocritical blowhard. However, I do believe that if you are going to criticize him, let it be on something that he actually did wrong (such as his history of drug abuse while moralizing to others) and not on something that he is not responsible for.

    In this case, even the clip provided show that Limbaugh was NOT THE SOURCE of the “white, working families. That is an actual quote of an opinion piece for the New York Time by Thomas B. Edsall, a piece that Limbaugh specifically cites. The original column can be seen at http://campaignstops.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/27/the-future-of-the-obama-coalition/

    Indeed, Mr. Edsall has written numerous columns about white voters in America and how President Obama is “abandoning” them. So if you want to castigate Rush Limbaugh for making seemingly racist statements, make that they actually originate from him and not just something that he is gleefully quoting?

Will you decide what men shall live, what men shall die? It may be, that in the sight of Heaven, you are more worthless and less fit to live than millions like this poor man’s child. Oh God! To hear the Insect on the leaf pronouncing on the too much life among his hungry brothers in the dust!”"- Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

  • Before discovering his talent for bombast and ridicule, Limbaugh failed at virtually everything he ever attempted in life.

  • Ha! He’s just the best source of belly-laughing for this country. We have a lot of backward, squawking idiots voicing a great deal of crap these days and he is their King.

  • Rush Limbaugh is a racist, sexist, homophobic pig.

  • @ Richard Miles
    Not to be a nitpicker, Richard, but it wasn’t Jesus who supposedly said that the love of money is the root of (all kinds of) evil, it was Paul (1 Timothy 6:10) Also, I think that the thing about mammon was Paul, too. It seems like a lot of Christians today conflate Jesus & Paul’s teachings when a lot of them are quite a bit at odds with each other.

      Jerry,
      You’re right! Sorry for the sloppy reference work there. It was Paul who spoke of money as the root of all evil. (I Timothy 6:10) However, it was Jesus who spoke of not being able to serve both God and Mammon, the god of money. (Matt 6:24 and Luke 16: 13) Thanks for calling my attention to this.

  • What he meant to say was that his comments were in no way more racist than usual.
