    if this were the 1920, this cracker would be in a white hood and burning crosses in front of black churches.... there's really no doubt in my mind...

    LIMBAUGH: I want to know. I look at Iowa, I look at Illinois—I want to see the murders. I want to see the looting. I want to see all the stuff that happened in New Orleans. I see devastation in Iowa and Illinois that dwarfs what happened in New Orleans. (are you sure?) I see people working together. I see people trying to save their property…I don’t see a bunch of people running around waving guns at helicopters, I don’t see a bunch of people running shooting cops. I don’t see a bunch of people raping people on the street. I don’t see a bunch of people doing everything they can…whining and moaning—where’s FEMA, where’s BUSH. I see the heartland of America. When I look at Iowa and when I look at Illinois, I see the backbone of America.​

    It would seem that the images of floating bodies, and documented stories of elderly New Orleans residents drowning in their attics is cold hard facts surrounding humans that Rush Limbaugh thinks could have benefited by just pulling themselves up by their bootstraps a little more. Nevermind that more than 1700 human beings lost their lives on live television as America watched in horror. You don’t hear progressives saying that Iowa is any less devastating because the death toll in those floods was a total of 5. It is still a tragedy. And progressives understand that full well.

    But according to Rush the story of Iowa under water isn’t a story about humans over coming adversity. It’s a story about how much more patriotic the white bread basket is than the lazy south.

    Even if this were true, and it's clearly not, why do you have to take a swipe at NO by kicking them when they are down? This not only proves the man is a racist idiot, he's also just not a nice person.

    What did he say that was racist? I just clicked the link PC provided--I didn't hear him say it, and haven't checked his site, but I still don't see racism. I see him talking about the difference of the people in Iowa and Illinois v. New Orleans.

    Oddly enough--as someone who's been down along the river there in Illinois, I can tell you, there's a lot of black people living there. So some of those people he's praising as the backbone of America, do it for themselves etc? That's black, white and hispanic.

    Just reading between the lines. It's pretty obvious.

    Reading between the lines? Is that something we really want to start doing or encouraging here?

    I said I didn't like "black cars" once because they seem to show the dirt more and PC called me a racist, he loves that stuff.

    Rush Limbaugh said it, so therefore it is. That's reading between the lines.

    So much for "no comment," huh forum Grand Wizard?...

    Anyhow, show me the link to the thread you are referring to. about "black cars." If not, please stick to "not commenting."

    Yes actually, he has a history of making racist and bigoted remarks, and it's obvious that the only difference here is one area is predominately white and the other is a black urban area with much more poverty.

    So I guess you agree with his assessment then that the devastation "dwarfs New Orleans." Setting aside the racist stuff, that statement is just false, and patently idiotic.

    Have you been there?

    I went to school along the Rock River in Wisconsin. I was friends with people who had family in Moline and the Quad Cities. I've been all along there...and I don't see how you can honestly say predominately white.

    I didn't (can't) agree with him, nor disagree, at this point. I don't know the entirety, or context of what he was saying. Obviously ThinkProgressive is going to take the angle that best suits it's agenda. I'll click that link soon enough, and then look elsewhere for a different perspective. One thing I won't do, is label his remarks as being racist, when they may just be racial. Too many in here see a white guy say "black...." and slam on the racist tag. I won't do that. On the surface, I think we'd all agree that the media coverage is different, but that's partly explainable by the difference in catastrophe's. One was a spectacular hurricane, the other a series of rains over an extended period of time. There isn't the drama involved in the latter, that there is in the former.

    As for the destruction & dwarfing, I personally think he's wrong. The thing is, I don't know what the devastation is in Iowa & the surrounding area's. It could be similar in the end, but I personally doubt it.

    In the eyes and mindset of the whining hand wringing blame whitey slobbering do-gooder there will never again in the lifetime of the Planet Earth be another Flood as great as the one that hit New Orleans, not even Noah's Flood, oh Jesus.

    Have they handed out "Debit Cards" to the new flood victims yet--:confused:

    Rush's point is wrong from the beginning. The floods in Iowa are nothing compared to what happened in NOLA. He's a moron and we're all less intelligent collectively as a country because idiots like Rush skew the curve. He is a sad example of an American and the fat, drug-infested, draft-dodging coward will not be missed.

    ask yourself :

    "Why was Rush fired from ESPN?"

    answer yourself :

    "Because he is a fukcing RACIST!!!!"




    then read his comments on the flooding and New Orleans. There is no reading between his lines. Its right the flunk there.

    Combine this with Wistahs" Rush's point is wrong from the beginning. The floods in Iowa are nothing compared to what happened in NOLA. He's a moron and we're all less intelligent collectively as a country because idiots like Rush skew the curve. He is a sad example of an American and the fat, drug-infested, draft-dodging coward will not be missed." And I think you get the the perfect post.

    Facts aside, like RW I don't know, his point is interesting that if the identical thing happened in New Orleans the outcry would likely be much louder. Of course, I like Rush and generally agree with him on the extremely rare chance I get to listen to him.

    Remember when he got busted in Miami for having a bottle of Viagra. He went on a trip to Jamaca i think with a few male friends. Came back with the male friends and a couple of Viagra short. HMM
