People have made careers out of discussing the ignorance that spews from Rush Limbaugh’s mouth. There are few in he mainstream conservative media who project such vile hatred and ignorance as Limbaugh. He’s made millions being quite possibly one of the most disgusting human beings in the media.
A point he proved yet again by essentially saying that anyone outside of a white male who might be president would never be criticized because people would label the critics as racist, homophobic or sexist. He also said that Hillary Clinton had absolutely no qualification to be President of the United States and that her supporters only like her because she would be the nation’s first female president
Limbaugh said, “The first African American president beyond criticism, you can’t criticize anything. You can’t chronicle his failures, you can’t do anything because you’re being racist. So if you get Hillary Clinton in there, first female president, any criticism of her will be sexist. And if it’s an Hispanic, first Hispanic president, any criticism will be racist again – and whatever else. And then if they elect the first gay president – then any criticism will be homophobic.”
What world are these people living in where President Obama hasn’t endured criticism? Hell, that’s all he’s gotten from Republicans since even before he was elected. And I can assure you, from my experience with liberals, many liberals (especially on the far left) often say “he’s no different than Bush.”
Hell, Jon Stewart, someone who’s often called a member of the liberal media, has frequently called out President Obama.
But Limbaugh didn’t stop there. He continued to rant on about Hillary’s qualifications to be president, saying, “The fact that she would be the first female president is all they care about. The fact that she’s not qualified, the fact that they can’t name a single achievement doesn’t matter.”
I would love someone to ask Rush, “Outside of who his father is, what qualified George W. Bush to first be Governor of Texas, then President of the United States?”
Without going into what Hillary has achieved, because that would be a whole separate article, I’ll just say she’s far more qualified to be President of the United States than George W. Bush was. Hell, she’s more qualified than Ronald Reagan was.
But then Limbaugh continued on, claiming that liberals are the most racist and sexist people he encounters because all liberals see is “what’s on the surface.”
For those who might not recognize it, that’s prototypical talk from someone who’s a bigot. They like to push this idea that because liberals elect minorities, or women, or other religions that we are the real racists because we clearly only elected them because of their race, gender or religion. Not that these people are actually qualified for the job. Oh, no. But only because of their race, gender or religion.
Then if you call these bigoted conservatives out for their racism or sexism, they twist it around as, “See, you can’t even criticize these touchy women/minorities without being called a sexist/racist!”
They’re completely ridiculous and absolutely terrified of Hillary Clinton. And while I obviously support President Obama, I really can’t wait until 2016 when Hillary gets elected and conservatives collectively lose their minds.
It’s going to be great.
