Hurricane Bears Down on NOLA: Rush Makes a Suggestion

Here we go again.  The defacto leader of the Republican Party has a new plan for killing “Democrats” (read: poor, black citizens) in New Orleans.  Alas, no action was taken and the levees held but Republicans can keep their fingers crossed that another storm will visit Louisiana this season and maybe they will be able to get this plan in place.

Here’s a transcript for those that can’t stand to listen to Rush’s voice.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: Okay, folks, it’s a moment of truth. We are mere hours away now from Tropical Storm Isaac, which everybody is desperately hoping becomes a hurricane. I can’t believe this. They are desperately hoping that it becomes a hurricane. It’s the Democrats’ wet dream that this thing hit New Orleans. So, you know me. My middle name is Solutions. I have some ideas for the Republicans. How to deal with the tropical storm, slash, hurricane hitting New Orleans.

The first thing we do is offer to send 500 bus drivers to New Orleans, paid for by us, to make sure that the buses that were not used by the Democrat mayor during Hurricane Katrina will be used to evacuate people should it become necessary.

The second thing that I think the Republicans ought to do is send bags of money instead of sand. Bags full of money to shore up the levees in New Orleans. This would accomplish many things. A, it would show our compassion. B, we could have Romney’s five sons who CNN last night asked, “What’s it like to be rich as sin,” or whatever. They did. Piers Morgan asked Romney’s sons, (paraphrasing) “What’s it like to be stinking rich?” So we have Romney’s five sons deliver the bags of money to shore up the levees.

Now, this will accomplish much. It will show our compassion, and it will do something else. Once we publicize that we have sent 500 bags of money — well, whatever number of bags, bags filled with money to shore up the levees, what will happen? The poor of New Orleans will storm the levees and steal the bags, thereby putting themselves at risk for the eventual flooding that will happen once they remove the bags of money. And that way the Republicans can get rid of even more Democrats in Louisiana and shore up the state for themselves. How about those two ideas, folks? Am I not thinking or am I thinking?

“Legitimate Rape” Doesn’t Cause Pregnancy

Here is another in our series of videos where Republicans aren’t necessarily racists… Just misogynists. Republican candidate Todd Akin of Missouri sits on CNN and boldly states that in cases of “legitimate rape” that the body will not allow pregnancy to occur. He says “from what I understand from doctors” to qualify the statement (and give it that science-y feel) but the fact is that he’s pulling this right out of his ass. Somehow, the female body can prevent pregnancy if it is raped but is helpless to prevent unwanted pregnancy in all other cases.

This is more made up “science” from Republican politicians. Notice how he speaks with authority becuase he needs this statement to be true. Republicans are laying the cards out on how they feel about women and minorities in this country, lately. Listen to them and you will hear the truth. One of the keys to having women not despise them is if they can convince women (and partisan white males) that real rape doesn’t cause pregnancy then maybe their anti-choice political views start to make sense. I know it is twisted logic but it’s simply what these people are trying to do.

My guess is that Todd Akin just put a winnable Republican House seat into play and women could have a chance to send him back to the primordial ooze he crawled out of this November.

Hey Ladies! Rush Limbaugh Wants to Watch You Have Sex…

From the March 1 editon of Premiere Radio Networks’ The Rush Limbaugh Show

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I cannot think of anything sexier for a woman than Rush Limbaugh watching her have sex.

This clip isn’t racist. I’ll tell you that now. But it’s here because, in 2012, misogynism and racism go hand-in-hand with the Republican party. Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown law student, testified about contraception and Rush disagrees so it’s time for him to attack. The recent fights over contraception in health insurance programs are now exposing that more and more the Republican party is 100% the party of rich, white dudes. Ronald Reagan’s vision of a “big tent” for the GOP is a dream that is as dead as tight-rolling your jeans.

Hearing Rush say this to his devoted audience of millions with absolutely ZERO complaint from Republicans tells you all that you need to know about the Republican vision for the future of women in America… And that future is just like the 1850’s.

This clip doesn’t prove that Republicans are racist but it does prove that Rush Limbaugh can say anything about women and at least one of them will still have sex with him. Kathryn Elizabeth Rogers… You are a shallow, gold-digging betrayer of your sex and your husband has zero respect for you.

Fox’s Greg Gutfeld: “Catholics Write Letters And Muslims Stab You With Letter Openers”

From the February 27 edition of Fox News’ The Five

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Usually, watching Fox News’ The Five gives me a headache but when the brunette with the giant fish mouth shows up, I’m all in! This time, after fish-face finishes her anti-muslim rant, it is Greg Gutfeld that steps up to really cap off what is already a fairly offensive rant. Gutfield makes his bad joke and then follows up by encouraging genocide. All in all, this is a classy piece that highlights all the fun that can be had by radical fundamentalist Christians with a TV network.

Even though no one uses letter openers anymore, thanks to the invention of e-mail, this clip shows two things; Fox hosts are religious zealots and Republicans are racists.

Bolling to Waters: “Congresswoman, You Saw What Happened To Whitney Houston. Step Away From The Crack Pipe”

[“From the February 16 edition of Fox News’ Fox & Friends“]

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Eric Bolling is making his case for being the biggest jackass on Fox News. Here he goes again. After a discussion about Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ words yesterday, Bolling snaps off, “Congresswoman, You Saw What Happened To Whitney Houston. Step Away From The Crack Pipe.” Even his co-hosts knew he had just gone to far as is judged by their nervous laughter… But they still laughed.

Maxine Waters did make a partisan and energetic speech in front of supporters that said some antagonistic things about Speaker Boehner and his GOP playmates. This is very common. Just look at the Republican primary that has been boiling over the last few months. People say rhetorically charged things sometimes… But to react with this kind of statement goes beyond the pale and right into my wheelhouse… Good ol’ GOP racism.

Did Bolling use a white person that has died of an alleged drug overdose for his comparison? Nope. He used a black woman and he used crack. Both are racially charged dog whistles and Bolling knows it. Keep reminding everyone that black people are poor, socialist crackheads and that our President (and Maxine Waters) is… ahem … one of them.

At the end of this clip, thanks to the editors at Media Matters, Bolling does use the “I was kidding” defense after the show comes back from commercial. This is always step one in any Republican racist’s defense of a stupid comment and it is an empty and meaningless gesture. You cannot put this genie back in it’s bottle.

Once again, Eric Bolling and his giggling cronies at Fox & Friends are showing that Republicans are racists.

“Mr. America” Delivers ‘Revolutionary’ Hip-hop with a Dash of Racism at CPAC

Imagine that you had a week of television coverage dedicated to highlighting you and all of your extended family and sharing it with the world. Even far distant cousins, uncles, and nieces could come, get on stage and say or do whatever the voices in their heads tell them to. Wouldn’t that be great?

Well, if your extended family is anything like mine, that might not be such an awesome thing. Sure, you and your parents might be able to keep it together and give a speech or show a talent that could be educational or entertaining, but if everyone gets that same chance what do you think would happen? Odds are, something like the video above.

CPAC is this kind of magic stage for Republicans. Sure, the adults get a chance to speak but what sucks for the GOP is that the rest of them get to speak as well. This performance by conservative “comics” and commentators Steven Crowder and Chris Loesch is one of those embarrassing moments put on display for the rest of us to enjoy.

Not only is this terrible rap, it simply isn’t funny. Notice how the stark white crowd sits on their hands and looks on in confusion while these cats rap in powdered wigs. The crowd clearly isn’t feeling that hip-hop vibe. Well… Right up until the dog whistle blows… The “nickers” bit near the end is finally where the white people perk up. See, the blue collar comedy lies in a white guy saying “nicker” while a black guy (lonely indeed at CPAC) leaves the room in a rehearsed huff. Crowder and Loesch cut the music and let it sink in for the slow ones. Oh man, are my sides splitting! NICKERS! Get it?!?

These white guys may not be able to rap very well but they do show you one special trait that white people at CPAC displayed in spades… Republicans are racists.

Ann Coulter Compares President Obama to Flava Flav at CPAC

The thunderous applause that Ann Coulter gets for this off-the-cuff remark shows you just how out in touch with their racism that the new Republican party is becoming. I like to discuss subtle racism and dog whistles because I find them fascinating but that sometimes makes me overlook more obvious material since I’m looking for subtlety. With Ann Coulter, this is never the case. Subtle ain’t her style… Especially in front of a hungry audience that’s begging for red meat.

The 2012 edition of the Conservative Political Action Conference really highlighted something we already know… Republicans are racists.

Rush Limbaugh Explains the “Racial Component” of Obama’s Mortgage Plan

[“From the February 9 edition of Premiere Radio Networks'”]

Vodpod videos no longer available.

You may have never considered that the mortgage crisis was caused by those horrible “poor minorities.” Rush explains here that President Obama is using class warfare to make the “bankers” (white people is what he means) look like meanies. The poor bankers are being blamed for a problem that was actually caused by the poor minorities. The key to deciphering Rush’s point? He always portrays blacks as the “poor minorities” and whites as the victimized “rich bankers.” Sorry Rush but those bad loans had nothing to do with the Community Reinvestment Act but they had everything to do with greed. The Southern Strategy has not been pushed this hard since the sixties

When you untwist this dog whistle disguised as a rant calling out dog whistles (did I just type that?) you will find that it leads to one conclusion… Republicans are racists.

GOP Attack Ad Portrays President Obama as the Captain of a Slave Ship

There comes a point where a dog whistle is no longer a dog whistle.   This ad from Mark Oxner, a Republican running for the new 27th congressional district in central Florida, portrays our first black president as the captain of a slave ship filled with white child slaves.  That’s right.  A slave ship filled with white slaves.  No need to mention that the commercial is filled with lies, it’s pretense speaks for itself.

The blatant racial overtones on this ad may appeal to the conservative whites in northwest Florida (the Redneck Riviera) and in parts of Central Florida but it’s thinly veiled racism should make the people who think it’s “awesome” feel ashamed of themselves.  Who thinks it’s awesome?  Check YouTube.  Mark Oxner for Congress has set comments to approve only and guess what?  They are only approving comments from people that agree with the ad.

An ad with President Obama at the helm of a slave ship filled with white child slaves?  Even artsy Republicans are Racists.

Rush Limbaugh: Juan Williams Can Thank the White Guy that Runs Fox News for His Job

From the January 31 edition of Premiere Radio Networks’ The Rush Limbaugh Show

Vodpod videos no longer available.
When you have to interrupt your own diatribe to ask “was there anything racial about that?” then there probably was some racist content in there. What’s sad is how often that Rush has to ask that very question on his own show.

Juan Williams is a top journalist in his field and has a long and respected career. I don’t always agree with the guy but I do respect him. What saddens me is how much grief he has received since he had the nerve to ask Newt Gingrich if he could see how saying that poor blacks should ask for a job and not a handout could upset black people. Not only was he booed, he’s caught hell from his own home team at Fox News and now from the defacto leader of the Republican Party… Rush Limbaugh.

This is nothing new for Rush Limbaugh and he continues to be the poster child for why Republicans are Racists.
