Limbaugh: Iowa Flood Victims Better than Katrina Victims

This what I love about--as Keith Olbermann calls him--comedian Rush Limbaugh: his racism isn't subtle, coded or concealed. No, it's out in the open, clear as day, and there for all to see.
"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. 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."
Silly black people, with no common sense or decency. Right, Rush? Asshole.

Check this out:


  1. Limbaugh didn't mention "black" people anywhere. There were whites in New Orleans. There are blacks in Illinois and Iowa. He just made a comment on the situation. The facts are, people in the Midwest acted and reacted differently than those in New Orleans.

  2. No, he didn't mention blacks. But NOLA was (is?) predominantly black and the vast majority of images he and the rest of us saw on TV during Katrina were of black people. (Not to mention the blatant blacks=looters; whites=searching for food qualifiers thrown out there by the media.) The images from the Midwest tragedy were predominantly of whites. And Limbaugh made his comments based on those images.
