Limbaugh: Dems Have ‘White Racist Leadership’ (Video)
November 12, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)—-Are there no on-air boundaries for the likes of hate talker Rush Limbaugh? This week, the odious right-wing gas bag engaged in more race-baiting. Weighing in on the power struggle in the House between Democratic Reps. Jim Clyburn (SC) and Steny Hoyer (MD), Limbaugh said Democrats are “white racists.” Limbaugh said he had a solution. He offensively said Rep. Clyburn, who is African American, should serve as Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s chauffeur, as in “Driving Miss Nancy.” In response to criticism for his racist rhetoric, Limbaugh photoshopped an image of Rep. Clyburn “Driving Miss Nancy” and posted it on his website.
Limbaugh made his offensive remarks during Thursday’s talk radio show.
“The white racist leadership of the Democrat party trying to ace out Clyburn …”
“Hey I have a suggestion…Clyburn’s worried about not having a car, Clyburn’s worried about not having the perk, a big office, a driver, so forth. The way this all could be worked out, Clyburn’s new position–Driving Miss Nancy. He gets to keep the car. He gets to go everywhere she goes, parties and everything else. He’s not in the back of the bus, he’s in the driver’s seat. And she’s in the back of the car being chauffeured, solved problem.”
Limbaugh, claims he wasn’t being racist, but just making “a little humor.”
