Holder and Farrakhan Make Racist Remarks, But Rush is the Racist?
March 2, 2011BEGIN TRANSCRIPT
RUSH: Yesterday on this program we had a news story, a news story on which I commented. I didn't really say much. I just reported it to you. That was the story that Eric Holder felt offended having to investigate and perhaps level charges against the New Black Panther Party because those are his people. He didn't want to have to do that. Those are the quote, "my people." So I report this, and I report the quote by Bartle Bull suggesting that some of this is hard to understand, outrageous, Bartle Bull a Democrat. I get up today and I get an e-mail from somebody, "Do you realize you're being attacked for introducing race into this story?" I said, "What? I am being attacked for introducing race into the story?" "Yeah, it's at Mediaite." So I went to Mediaite and indeed I, El Rushbo, am being accused of introducing race, once again in a very risky way, into the story of Eric Holder suggesting he didn't want to go anywhere near the Black Panther story because it hurt him because those are his people. And I'm the one injecting race. And they had a link to explain what they meant about how I am once again riskily involved in injecting race.
You hit the link and it goes to another Mediaite story in which they had a cow because we learned the abortion rate in New York, Planned Parenthood. I simply categorized that as Planned Parenthood finishing the job the Klan never could. I didn't know but that set 'em off. Oh, yeah, that blew 'em a new one, and so when I just happened to mention that Eric Holder didn't want to get anywhere near the Black Panther story because they were his people, somehow I, harmless, lovable little fuzzball minding my own business, bothering nobody, am accused once again of injecting race into the story. Meanwhile, the left can say and do anything. In fact, the left can abort 60% of black babies, and that's cool. Let me report it and all hell breaks loose. Eric Holder can say, (paraphrasing) "I'm not prosecuting the New Black Panthers. Those are my people." Can you imagine if Edward Meese, attorney general during Reagan, said, "Hell no, we're not gonna go after that group. Those are my people. Those are a bunch of white guys." Can you imagine what would happen?
So I point all this out and it proves that we conservatives are not allowed to mention a word, we're not allowed to talk about it, we can't even report it. They can sit there and literally preside over the death of 60% of black babies in the womb via Planned Parenthood and it's none of your business, Limbaugh, you shut up, very racist of you to mention that. Racist to mention it? What about the actual act here? Sixty percent of African-American pregnancies end in abortion in New York. I don't work at Planned Parenthood. I have nothing to do with that outcome.
Meanwhile, in the Jerusalem Post: "Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan says his comments on Jews are meant 'to pull the cover off Satan' and 'Zionists dominate the US government and banks.'" This guy's a good friend of Jeremiah Wright, Obama's preacher. He's a good friend of Moammar Khadafy. Anybody denounce this guy? (interruption) What are you, doubting me? H.R. in the IFB said, "Where did he say this?" Jerusalem Post. Of course it didn't make it here. A lot of stuff ends up in the foreign press that doesn't happen here. Here's what it says. He said it on Tuesday at the Nation of Islam annual meeting in Chicago.
"Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan said Jews and Zionists are 'trying to push the US into war' and are a cover for Satan. 'President Obama,' Farrakhan said, 'if you allow the Zionists to push you, to mount a military offensive against Khadafy and you go in and kill him and his sons as you did with Saddam Hussein and his sons, I’m warning you this is a Libyan problem, let the Libyans solve their problem among themselves.' Farrakhan called Moammar Khadafy 'my brother' and 'my friend.'" My people. Just like Eric Holder referred to the New Black Panther crowd as "my people." Now, nobody's denouncing this guy, and nobody's denouncing the Reverend Wright.
"Farrakhan also accused American Zionists of attempting to push Israel into war with Iran, adding that 'Zionists dominate the government of the United States of America and her banking system.' One panel at the conference," this is at the Nation of Islam conference, "titled 'The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,' claimed that Jews were disproportionately involved in the slave trade and accused them of controlling the media. 'Some of you think that I’m just somebody who’s got something out for the Jewish people,' Farrakhan said. 'You’re stupid. Do you think I would waste my time if I did not think it was important for you to know Satan? My job is to pull the cover off of Satan so that he will never deceive you and the people of the world again.' In response, ADL National Director Abe Foxman said," Rush Limbaugh is a racist and we demand an apology.
RUSH: Just a few weeks ago Khadafy was calling for the Arab world to rise up against Israel, and now Calypso Louie is talking about "uprisings" against America. Who do you think Farrakhan sees as some of the first targets in these uprisings? Who do you think it would be? The Jews! Now, apparently Khadafy said he can't leave because he's not the president. He says he's not a president, he's not a king, he's a colonel (he hasn't even gotten a promotion to general all these years). So he has no power and no position to step down from. He's just an inspiration; he's just a messiah. This is not good, folks. Let's hope we don't face this same line of reasoning in 2012. (impression) "Uh, I'm Barack Obama, and I can't resign!" You never know.
