After Colin Powell told CBS News “Face The Nation” that he wasn’t sure who he was going to vote for in the 2012 Election, Limbaugh said on his radio show that Powell will vote for President Obama in 2012 because “melanin is thicker than water.”
Look, Rush Limbaugh is an asshole. I know it. You know it. Hell, even he knows it. Writing a post about Rush Limbaugh barely counts as blogging. He’s always going to say something racist, or sexist, or homophobic. It’s who he is and it’s why I don’t bother getting worked up about him.
That’s just what he does.
So why am I writing this, you ask?
Because it is striking that Limbaugh’s comments about Colin Powell are very similar to some of the comments directed at me (and other black people) about our support of President Obama… from the left.
Remember our friend Anthony Noel of New Progressives?1 Remember how he told me to “get over being black and debate like a human”? Remember how he so graciously “accepted my word” that my support of President Obama is not based on our “shared ethnicity”? Remember how he told me that my continued support of President Obama was racist because a white president would have lost my support by now (as if he knows anything about me)?
Sounds fairly Limbaugh-esque, dontcha think?
It’s a sad day for liberals when I can’t differentiate the verbal diarrhea oozing from the likes of Rush Limbaugh from that spewing from the pieholes of some of these so-called “progressives.”
Something to think about.
1 I’ve gone through and highlighted the most offensive statements from Mr. Noel in case you don’t want to read the entire ridiculous exchange.
