An African-American boy beat up a Caucasian boy the other day on a school bus in St. Louis. The beating was caught on tape and made headlines. The reporting officer originally claimed that it might have been racially motivated. He took that back after it turned out not to be the case. The fight erupted over choice of seating.
Rush Limbaugh, however, never one to let anything negative happening in the world go by without stirring the racial pot and blaming it on Obama stated:
You put your kids on a school bus you expect safety but in Obama’s America the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering ‘yeah, right on, right on, right on.’ Of course everybody said the white kid deserved it he was born a racist, he’s white.
And folks continue to deny that guys like Limbaugh are not motivated by racism in their accusations and fear-mongering against President Obama. How disgusting he and others like him are. How sad. But Limbaugh is the voice of many a conservative American. Not all, mind you, but many. And those already filled with hate and happy to take that hatred to the streets, soak his vile up like gospel. And it spreads.
One question is, does Rush Limbaugh believe his own gospel, or is he just using the very people that claim to be his audience to wreak havoc?
