LIMBAUGH AIMS AT WRONG FOES…. | The Washington Monthly
Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh condemned what he sees as President Obama’s “arrogance,” and said the president is like “some” African Americans who say the “Fourth of July ain’t no big deal to me, yo.”
I often feel like I need a decoder ring when translating Limbaugh’s nonsense, but this one was especially odd. I’ve never heard anyone, of any race, say the “Fourth of July ain’t no big deal to me, yo.” I can only assume this is Limbaugh’s way of saying African Americans aren’t as patriotic as other Americans — an argument that is as ugly as it is stupid.
Funny Rush! As Benen goes on to point out and I can affirm from my own family history, in the south up through fathers generation, the 4th of July wasn’t generally celebrated by white people, yo.
Word to Rush!
