Rush Limbaugh Looks Like a Complete Fool After Lie Trying to Link Obama and Donald Sterling Collapses

limbaugh-studioDesperate to take the focus off the fact that short-lived conservative hero Cliven Bundy turned out to be a complete racist, conservatives were quick to try to link Donald Sterling and his racist comments to Democrats.

Rush Limbaugh actually took it a step further by saying that liberals went after Sterling because he didn’t give President Obama enough money.  Limbaugh said, “This is not news to anybody who has known this guy.  This guy’s a big Democrat.  The only reason he’s in trouble is he did not give enough money to Obama.”

Well, he’s right on one account.  Donald Sterling does have a racist past and it was fairly well known to a lot of people.  But what he got completely wrong is that Donald Sterling isn’t a Democrat, he’s a registered Republican.  Granted he’s given money to Democratic candidates, but according to California’s database’s records he’s been a registered Republican since at least 2002.

Though I think it’s a far stretch for anyone to try to make Sterling’s comments into some kind of Democrat vs. Republican racial argument.  But that’s exactly what several members of the conservative media tried to do.  Well, until the truth came out that he was actually a registered Republican.  Then suddenly you saw these reports quickly fade from these conservative media outlets.  In fact, Matt Drudge deleted his tweet that insisted Sterling was a Democrat – with no explanation or retraction given.

I think it’s absolutely pathetic that not only would the conservative media try to link Sterling to the Democratic party based on gross misinformation and lies, but Rush Limbaugh would try to take it a step further by claiming that this is some kind of liberal media witch hunt all because Sterling didn’t donate enough money to President Obama.

The outrage over Sterling’s comments isn’t derived from any “liberal” push to go after the man.  The outrage stems from people who are disgusted by what he said.  Racism is bad enough.  But when you’re an owner of an NBA franchise – with the NBA being predominantly African American – it amplifies the ignorance even more.

But the fact that Rush Limbaugh and other conservative members of the media made fools of themselves trying to turn this into a, “See, Democrats are racist!” argument only shows how desperate they are to try to take the attention off of them and their recent “break up” with their right-wing “hero” Cliven Bundy.

    It may be stupid, false, and completely wrong, but his listeners and the people listening on Fox will take it as “truth.”

    • auntielib

      OpenSecrets takes it as the truth also.

      “Sterling donated a combined of $4,000 to Democratic Sens. Bill Bradley of New Jersey and Patrick Leahy of Vermont as well as then-State Controller Gray Davis of California in the late 1980s and early 1990s, according to a database on OpenSecrets.”

      You lose, Prog.

      • Seth Bailey

        Pretty sure people can change their party or ideology.

        Ronald Reagan, Frank Sinatra and Charton Heston all used to be Democrats, too, and then turned into some of the most conservative Republicans ever.

        The early 90’s was two+ decades ago and he’s been a registered Republican since at least 2002 as is mentioned. I’m willing to take that at face value and say the guy is probably a conservative rather than deny reality like conservatives seem to be doing.

      • auntielib

        Or, he may simply have never bothered to change his voter registration.

        Plus the fact remains – apparently the ONLY political donations he makes are to Democrats. Indeed, he may always VOTE Democrat.

        So, Sterling donated to democratic candidates over 20 years ago, but has been a registered republican for at least the last 12 years. A little more recent history, please.

        The only loser in this particular case is Limbaugh because he loves to spew hatred and lies. It’s unfortunate that people actually believe what he says.

      • Dani

        Did you not read the article? They say that Sterling DID donate to some Dems over the years, but has been registered Republican since 2002. And $4,000 at that? That’s chump change to him and I would hardly consider that even a donation. Also, late 80s and early 90s? That’s decades ago. Hardly even worth mentioning now.

      • auntielib

        Dani, it’s pretty obvious that Sterling votes Democrat, given his pattern of political contributions. But many Progressives are too stupid to realize that if you register as a Democrat (for example) that does not mean you “vote Democrat” or if you register as an Independent that you “vote Republican” or whatever. Party REGISTRATION and party SUPPORT are two entirely separate things. Clearly Sterling supports the Democrats/Progressives, not the Republicans.

        But it’s understandable that you Progressives on this discussion forum are TRYING to disassociate yourselves from him, even though his political contribution track record prevents you from doing so!

      • Adam Smith

        Um, no, we’re simply telling you he’s one of yours and to grow a pair and live with it.

  • auntielib

    It’s fun watching Progs rant and rail against Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh and FOX News, thinking it is doing them and their dumb Democrat Party any good. Meanwhile, over in the real world:

    “Democrats face serious obstacles as they look to the November elections, with President Obama’s approval rating at a new low and a majority of voters saying they prefer a Congress in Republican hands to check the president’s agenda, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

    Obama’s approval rating fell to 41 percent, down from 46 percent through the first three months of the year and the lowest of his presidency in Post-ABC News polls. Just 42 percent approve of his handling of the economy, 37 percent approve of how he is handling the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and 34 percent approve of his handling of the situation involving Ukraine and Russia.”

    • RM.Almond

      Care to tell what percentage supports the Republican led Congress? It is just about 12 percent give or take a tenth. So on a sliding scale that puts Obama about 350 percent better off than any Republican

      • auntielib

        “Care to tell what percentage supports the Republican led Congress?”
        —–
        Sure, glad to! As the new WaPo poll points out, “a majority of voters say they prefer a Congress in Republican hands”.

        Thanks for asking!

      • shirleyfeeney

        That would be the majority they polled. Obama won by a landslide in 2012, and red states are being faced with angry citizens who want their ACA. They’ve paid into the system, now they want a return on that money. I know it’s complicated for you, but facts are facts whether you believe them.or not.

      • auntielib

        The Republicans won by a landslide in 2010.

        And according to that latest WaPo polling data, the Republicans appear to be on track to win by a landslide in 2014 again also. But maybe you don’t trust “right wing extremist” newspapers like the Washington Post or ABC News?

        Ronald Reagan used to be a Democrat, too, y’know. People can change their ideologies. If the last donations the guy made to Democrats was in the early 90’s – two decades ago – and he’s a registered Republican now, I think it’s safe to say he’s a Republican.

  • JM

    Sterling’s political affiliation does not matter, and neither should Bundy’s! It’s funny how the liberals are so eager to brand someone who does something bad as a Republican, but, when the tables are turned, they circle the wagons. More hypocrisy from the liberals! By the way, what tells you about the leanings Sterling, the party he is registered in, or the candidates he supports with his money???

    • Pipercat

      California registrar records show Mr. Sterling has been a registered Republican since 2002.

      • auntielib

        So you claim, yet he has been donating money to the fatcat Democrats! As the saying goes, “money talks, and Prog BS walks.”

      • Pipercat

        No Ducky, you just claimed that. Assuming you had an objective eye, it becomes quite obvious Mr. Sterling bought whatever and whomever he needed to attain his goals. Alas, a shill like you could never see the big picture like that.

      • auntielib

        Not only did I claim it, it also is true. Too bad you Progs shoot from the hip, instead of getting your facts straight. That’s why it’s so goshdarned easy to make you Progs look like fools.

        “Sterling donated a combined of $4,000 to Democratic Sens. Bill Bradley of New Jersey and Patrick Leahy of Vermont as well as then-State Controller Gray Davis of California in the late 1980s and early 1990s, according to a database on OpenSecrets.”

        You lose, Prog.

      • Pipercat

        So what? Again, you have no idea why he donated to whom. If you actually took some time to read the comments, you’d notice how I pointed out that ol’e Rush was right about this Sterling character being a general everyday asshole; moreover and some time back, some sports rag like Sports Illustrated published a screed about Mr. Sterling being the worst owner in all of professional sports. The only loser is the one who will not see the rake that lies before him…

      • auntielib

        “Again, you have no idea why he donated to whom.”
        —-
        Your suggestion that Sterling contributed to fat cat Democrat politicians because he “likes Republicans” is precisely the sort of thinking that identifies you Progressives as the sort of “deep thinkers” that you are, Pipercat.

      • Pipercat

        False attribution fallacy and a delusional red herring. I never said he liked anybody. Let me explain this in simple terms: Mr. Sterling is a registered Republican; Mr. Sterling donated to Democratic Candidates; Mr. Sterling in embroiled in a divorce from his wife of 50 years; Mr. Sterling had a mistress that cost him around 10 million dollars; Mr. Sterling was sloppy enough to be recorded in a racist rant; Mr. Sterling gave to charities; Said charities knew he was an asshole; Said Charities still took his money. Can you see the pattern here?

      • auntielib

        ” Can you see the pattern here?”
        —–
        Yes. indeed I can. Scumbags tend to give political contributions to, and vote for, Democrats/Progressives.

      • Pipercat

        Another false attribution and the follow up is called a non-sequitur. Since you seem to be myopic and one dimensional I’ll make it easy for you. Quoting Tom Vu: It’s about the moneeeeeeeeeey!

      • auntielib

        “It’s about the moneeeeeeeeeey!”

        Yep. And Sterling has always given his money to Democrats/Progressives. Good point, Pipercat.

      • Pipercat

        You’re fallacies are fabulous, really! When you use words like “always” you create a conditional phrase that assumes knowledge of certain events; which is not even remotely possible in your case. So instead, we get a steady diet of nonsense all packaged up in shill-esque bullshit.

      • auntielib

        As opposed to “It’s [always] about the moneeeeeeeeey!”, eh Pipercat?

        Never use the word so in any form of response, it automatically shows an appeal to ignorance. (That’s another fallacy). My claim was facetious in nature and an attempt to explain my position; which eludes you and which of course does not fit into your predisposed and fallacious conclusion.

        Nope. It says he has been REGISTERED as a Republican since 2002. Which doesn’t mean he VOTES Republican.

        Indeed, the only political contributions we know of that he made were to DEMOCRATS! So the likelihood is high that he VOTES Democrat.

        But this may be too difficult for the average Progressive poster on an internet forum to grasp. Probably a lot of Progressives are dumb enough to think that if you are a “registered Democrat” that means you have to vote Democrat in the elections.

        Seth, why do you think DEMOCRAT governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia wanted to give voting rights to convicted felons sooner than the law had allowed??

        “McAuliffe will reduce the mandatory waiting period to three years, he said.”, reported that bastion of right wing extremist thinking, HuffPo.

        hey crybaby,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, funny how repub states such as FL and ariz also allow it:
        I guess that slipped your alcohol laced low IQ “mind”
        ==========================================
        and,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 78% of felons in VA are drug offenders……. not the VILOENT crime association of yesteryear.
        did U look up how to spell and use the VERY complex word “add”???
        and,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
        hows that Michael grimm fella doin’ 4 ya?
        maybe hes a presidential candidate up there with “huck(ster)abee”??

      • Adam Smith

        My point is you’re an idiot who apparently doesn’t know that “add” and “ad” are two different words and Shirley used them both in the proper context.

        I took a screen shot of it. I’ll ADD it to my collection of dumb things conservatives post. I might even take out an AD and put it in the paper.

        Are you done embarrassing yourself today?

        OHNOOOOOOO!!! another liberal taxation!!!

      • Sandy Greer

        LOL Would that include Rush?

        More of EVERYBODY votes Dem. Why the GOP expends so much effort on Voter Suppression – afraid of all those Dem votes. Also explains the proliferation of paid trolls – who hijack threads in attempts to shut down convos.

        ‘Cause when things just ain’t ‘right’ – People go Left.

        ^^^And that’s the Truth.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        wow– auntie doth make us mad!!!
        hey auntie: hows the 2016 presidential election on the GOP side looking?
        ” HUCKABEEEEEEEE”
        ( I personally am voting for sarah palin and Michael grimm)

  • shirleyfeeney

    Rush is an idiot. We knew this.

    I have to add here, under “irony”, that as I read this, there’s a huge ad to sign a petition to stop Common Core presented by Freedomworks, a huge Tea Party outlet and RWNJ factory. Really?!

    • auntielib

      It’s spelled “ad”, Shirley.

      Can’t you Progs even spell simple 2-letter words correctly?? Unlike you, Rush knows how to spell the word “ad” correctly.

      As you yourself said, you’re “as liberal as they come”, Shirley. And it shows.

      • Adam Smith

        Actually, Shirley is correct. She’s using two different words.

        First word : “I have to add here”

        add
        Verb
        1. join (something) to something else so as to increase the size, number, or amount.

        As in “add two plus two”

        Next word: “there’s a huge ad to sign a petition ”

        ad
        noun
        1. advertisement.
        2. advertising: an ad agency.

        As in “Let’s take out an ad in the paper showing how stupid auntielib is”

        So basically, you’ve just proven yourself to be an idiot.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the auntielib troll! An obfuscating, Rush Windbag listener who’s life is so pathetic that he’s got nothing better to do with his life than to troll and spew ignorance! Please join me in mourning the passing of his cerebrum…it will be missed!!

    • Pipercat

      I’ve seen some amazingly fallacious nonsense posited on these boards, but I have to tell you: This individual is amazing. Read all of the comments and every single one is an appeal to authority; moreover, there are additionally nested fallacies contained within. I think a round of applause is called for!

      • tcaruso01

        I don’t know about a round of applause…how about a smile, a wave, and heavy, sarcastic SIGH?

    • Sandy Greer

      He’s a paid troll: 100+/- posts a day; 23K+ total (and counting)

      It’s an election year. GOP is making last-ditch efforts (Voter Suppression) and pulling out all the stops (paid trolls)

      Best way to deal with pesky trolls (and employers) is to vote ’em the Hell outta Dodge. Along with the rest of the Haters on The Right. 😉

    If you want to confuse the few remaining audience member/ditto-heads simply ask them if they consider a person “conservative” who is also a recovering junkie, married 4 times, & whose dietary habits will require a gastric by-pass. You’re typically met with a vacant look & deflection.

  • Mike_Martinez

    NO one was thinking about his party affiliation until Rush mentioned it. Good Going Rush! You’ve just further exposed the depths to which the republican party is, at it’s very core, a racist bunch of blowhards and woman haters with strong bigot tendancies.

    • auntielib

      Here, allow me to distract you Progs away from your hatred of Rush momentarily:

      “Democrats face serious obstacles as they look to the November elections, with President Obama’s approval rating at a new low and a majority of voters saying they prefer a Congress in Republican hands to check the president’s agenda, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.”

      Enjoy, Mike! (btw, the Possessive is spelled “its”, not “it’s”, which is the contraction for “it is” – I realize you Progs aren’t exactly the sharpest blades in the drawer, but still, *perhaps* you can be elevated a little bit out of your ignorance)

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        hey pissboy–
        U dropped the ball on “add”
        ===============================
        your lachrymose rants about OTHERS “faux pas” spellings is now irrelevant

  • Edward Krebbs

    On another thread, a Sterling supporter posted a link to say Sterling was a dem. Only problem was the link was to the National Review. My point is that, SURPRISE, it isn’t just Rush but it has gotten loose in the conservative echo chamber.

    • auntielib

      You probably think if a guy is registered Independent that means he always votes for the “Independent candidate”, huh?
      (And never mind that Sterling has a solid track record of DONATING to Democrats, eh Prog?)

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        so; bt exptrapolation,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,because saint(??) Reagan was –for a LONG time– a democrat…………
        he was even as he “claimed” to be republican??

  • Diana Reichardt

    This guy is such a LOSER.

    • auntielib

      Yes, and that helps explain why he donates to Democrat politicians and probably VOTES Democrat also.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        donated ( past tense) 2 decades ago
        =================================
        votes? U have that info?
        U be a special kind of stooopid; eh cowboy?

  • William Glass

    Now here’s an interesting twist. Apparently Sterling has donated large sums of money in the past to NAACP. He has already been given an achievement award by them, and was scheduled to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from them within the next few days. Now, Sterling has been a known bigot and racist for a long time. He has been fined large sums by the government for housing discrimination against blacks, and has been sued by employees for race discrimination. Now, why would NAACP give awards to such a person? MONEY, that’s why! If you will give them large sums of money, they will turn a blind eye to your misdeeds! Only after the audio tape was revealed and received tremendous publicity did they decide to withhold the award. What whores they are!

    • moe/larry & curly keys

      kinda makes a republicans eyes shed tears of love,,,,doesn’t it?

    • auntielib

      Them colored people sure do like Mr. Sterling’s money, don’t they! I guess they figure it “advances colored people” to accept his money.

      Plus it’s clear Sterling VOTES Democrat, even though he is registered as a Republican. But try explaining that to a dumb Prog. You can’t. The dumb Progs think, for example, that if you are registered as an Independent, that means “you vote for the Independent candidate”.

      Progs aren’t exactly the sharpest blades in the drawer…

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        well; we do enjoy the roundness and circular thinking(??) of the dull spoons U clowns are.
        U have proof sterling voted repub in the past decade?
        NO? Hmmmmmm,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, must be the “coloreds” percolating around U; skewering your myopia

    “Rush Limbaugh Looks Like a Complete Fool”

    You could have ended the headline there …

    • auntielib

      Well honey, that’s just fine, you keep telling yourself what a Bad Ol’ Meanie that nasty Rush Limbaugh is, as often as you want, all day long if it makes you feel better.

      Meanwhile, over at the “right wing extremist” Washington Post, they’re saying things like:

      “Obama’s low rating could be a significant drag on Democratic candidates this fall — past elections suggest that when approval ratings are as low as Obama’s, the president’s party is almost certain to suffer at the ballot box in November.”

      Enjoy, Prog! And be sure to keep knockin’ yourself out with your rants against the Bad Ol’ Meanie Rush, ya hear!

  • auntielib

    The Progressive greed never ends, as today’s news reveals:

    “Thousands of the employees were forced into the union under a plan the SEIU successfully lobbied for that classified even unpaid family members caring for their elderly parents as “home health care workers.” Dues were then automatically collected from the care recipients’ Medicare or Medicaid checks.”

    How sick and greedy can those Democrat/Progressive f*cks get??

    • moe/larry & curly keys

      we are well behind the regressive republican “right”……………… but give us time– we are trying to catch up to the template they have shown for decades

  • Ron

    So the NAACP was going to give him a lifetime achievement award for being a republican?

  • Corrine Gurry

    Absolutely pathetic Rush needs to retire because it is more and more often he’s making a fool of himself. He lies unapologetically so much I think he believes himself. Does someone else write his material?

    what the hell diff. does it make what else he said? he tried to call a SPADE a SPADE the most imp. thing he said was: MEN are not supposed to SLEEP with and have SEX with MEN DUH! of course, u dont need to be a talk show host to know that. good day

  • McHale72

    Hilarious lead in: “turned out to be a complete racist.” I guess I’m an “incomplete racist.” Oh yah, don’t let the fact that his black employees not only says his comments were edited and taken out of context, but he’s not a racist and one said he’d take a bullet for him. Is “Progressive” long for “stupid?”

  • pokenhorn

    What is the crime committed by Sterling ? Who is the injured party ? Hurt feelings do not make you an injured party. They make you an offended party. There is no crime; there is no injured party. I suspect that Sterling is sleaze. So what ? That would make him a good fit for the democrat party, the party of the Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow. C’mon dems, loosen up. He’s one of your own.

    • LarryEWells

      Your pretty short on common sense and pretty long on stupid!! Everyone who isn’t a complete moron knows after the civil rights movement the parties became exact opposites of what they were. The views held by Democrats in the 50s are the views of the Repukl;icans now. As Lyndon Johnson said after the Civil rights Act was signed the south was lost to Democrats for generations.

      • pokenhorn

        Hey, democrat Larry, you reveal yourself with ‘stupid’, ‘moron’…ad hominem attacks. Democrat policies gave us cities like Detroit, 70% bastardy rates in the black community, and cultural decline like rap crap. I’m guessing you get a nice government check regularly so you are happy with things as they are.

      • LarryEWells

        Actually it was republicans who controlled all of Michigan so your slam on Detroit is silly . And yes after working all my life and paying into social security I do receive a nice check every month along with my other retirement thanks to democrats. In fact even if I didn’t get that check I could live quite nicely but since I worked hard played by the rules and made good money I get near the max on S.S. You redneck ought to try that work hard and save up thing so your kids and grandkids won’t be as stupid as you. If you actually had a job and paid into S.S. you too may have been able to live very comfortable in retirement. Over 80 grand aint too bad for just doing what I want plus my other investments.
