It will come as no surprise to you that the reason Rush Limbaugh suggests Romney was booed Wednesday while speaking at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) conference was because—hold on—Romney is white!!
Here’s the audio:
The real reason he was booed was because he said:
“I’m going to eliminate every non-essential, expensive program I can find, that includes Obamacare, and I’m going to work to reform and save…”
Here’s the video:
Limbaugh also criticized Obama for not attending the convention this year and sending Vice President Biden to tell “sex jokes.” He added: “So Romney takes advantage of the occasion. He goes there and makes a speech that is really, I think, is over these people’s heads, in the sense that his audience was much larger than just inside the conventional hall.”
“Over these people’s heads.” So according to Limbaugh, a large room of African-Americans are not capable of understanding what the white man is telling them.
I imagine Limbaugh doesn’t have a large African-American audience but he really needs to watch what he says. His thinly veiled comments are offensive and insulting to the black community. Perhaps it may be wishful thinking but hopefully these racist comments will be the final straw to get more people to boycott his sponsors. This man needs to move to Costa Rica now. I’ll personally buy him a ticket.
