In perhaps one of the most immoral acts that I have ever heard, Al Franken just played a clip of Rush Limbaugh calling the Duke Lacrosse rape victim a Ho.
You can hear the clip here.
From Media Matters:
Limbaugh's made the comment about a recent incident in Durham, North Carolina, in which an exotic dancer was allegedly raped by three members of the Duke lacrosse team. The incident has invoked further controversy because the victim, an African-American, has alleged that her attackers used racial epithets. Prompted by another caller to apologize for his words, Limbaugh said that he had made the statement because he was "running on fumes today," and called it a "terrible slip of the tongue." But he then added that there are "some inconsistencies" in the case and rephrased his apology, telling the second caller, "I regret that you heard me say it."
So, what do we do. How about contacting your local station that plays Rush Limbaugh and telling them to pull this immoral bastard.
How about sending that clip to any ditto-heads you know and asking if this is the kind of person they want their children becoming.
Then there is Boortz, just another right-wing nazi. Here you can listen to him call Rep. McKinney a gheto slut.
Again, from Media Matters:
Boortz said that McKinney's "new hair-do" makes her look "like a ghetto slut," like "an explosion at a Brillo pad factory," like "Tina Turner peeing on an electric fence," and like "a shih tzu." McKinney is the first African-American woman elected to Congress from Georgia.
Yes, that's right. This is the party that wants to bring in the African-American vote and how do they represent them? By calling them ho and ghetto slut. Hurray for the GOP.
WPTF in the Triangle
Has nothing even remotely resembling a conscience. They carry Flush Limbaugh with pride and take great joy in his race-baiting. In the old days, WPTF stood for "We Protect The Family." Today it stands for hate.
have these people no morals? no conscience?
Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.
Rush is just an old-fashioned garden variety racist moron. You'll find them everywhere. It saddens me a bit that we live in a culture that gives a guy like this a platform from which to be a jerk. Maybe we get the media we deserve.
