    Is Rush Limbaugh a racist?

    When George Steinbrenner died, Rush made this comment on air...

    "That cracker made a lot of African-American millionaires,"]
    "He fired a bunch of white guys as managers left and right."

    I can't say that I listen to Rush more than about 5 minutes a month so I'm no expert on his views or personality. But I do think a lot of what he says and does is for show. If he wasn't who he was, nobody would listen to him.

    Personally, when I do listen to him I just sit there and laugh and wonder how many people are really buying what he says. That's the scariest part of all.

    Can't stand the guy, but no I don't think he is. Then again the cracker remark never really bugged me and I'm one myself.


    Truth is I never thought of it as a racist term. Now I can only base my input on this particular remark, but I am not familiar with him saying racist things.

    No, I don't think he's racist. He made the remark during the height of the New Black Panthers issue and was making a dig at that fool that wants to kill cracker babies because whitey holds down the brothas. I thought that the comment was hysterical.

    I think he is a two faced prick, and an idiot. But that's my opinion.

    Goddamn druggie.

    yes, of corse not based on those comments alone, but more than 30 yrs of innuendo and comments. My opinion of course, only he knows what he truly believes.

    He's been called everything in the book by the bleeding heart liberals because of one thing, he is very effective at what he does and that is exposing them for what they are. I've been listening to him for about 2 years now and he hasn't said one thing that is racist, hell, I think a black priest even married them just a while ago.

    Oh yeah, he's a Great American and loves this country.
    I Hope He Fails

    I think you need to review the people listed in the "yes" category and then reread the thread. Three out of the four yes voters have made comments.

    Well, now we know who is too busy listening to Limbaugh to partake in watching The View...


    So JC, do people who spend their time listening to Rush NOT work as well?

    No one was out of line regarding your sig, but you. The filters are put in place here for a reason. The fact you clearly chose to bypass them by editing the spelling of the word shows that you knew you were breaking the rules. Care to respond about that JC or do you just prefer to cry about the fact someone dared point out the fact you broke a rule and knew it when you did it?

    Wish he was on TV at night, imagine the audience ?
    Thank you Rush...............

    Hiding behind parody and 'humor' doesn't make a person any less racist than someone who makes the comments straight faced.

    Typical answer when there is no proof of being a racist, just goes to show you that he ain't a racist.
    I can see if he sat in a racist church for 20 years that you might think otherwise.
