Are Rush Limbaugh and Ted Nugent Speaking the minds of White Americans? Yes!
Dear Rush n’ Ted,
In these highly combustible times, when Black and Brown folks have every right to demand you both be beheaded at sunset . . . I want to take a few moments to thank both of you for “daring” to be the Conservative (racist/sexist/homophobic/xenophobic and elitist) Rednecks that you are . . . mucho grande gracias for saying what so, so many White folks think and believe . . . nonetheless are far-too hypocritical to utter.
From the Washington Redskins to 19th slavery to 21st century parenthood . . . you roughs provide those of us who keep a ear to the wind, with what’s in the hearts and heads of White America, from the heartless, greedy fatcat aristocats Rush speaks for, to the rank n’ file trailer park rubbage Ted is the mouthpiece-for.
As a Black man, I could come-down from the tallest mountain-top, with a burnin’ bush in one hand and some smokin tablets, the concrete kind, in the other – proclaiming Black America had better wake-up and realize White America harbors little love for our Black asses,, and for that matter any other Americans-Of-Color, especially those with calves as big as cantaloupes . . . and I’d be ignored as yet another angry bitter Black dude tossing the race-card around . . . but you two can say ‘screw you Nigger” in a vast number of clocked ways, with a Confederate flair n good ol boy style – I simply can’t duplicate.
Your condescending, patronizing and arrogant tones can’t be duplicated . . . There’s nothing like hearing it directly from the Jackasses mouth.
I just can’t kick Black folks in the gut and crotch, simultaneously as you two appear to do . . . with such Archie Bunker ease n’ grace. Your like my father-in-law; every single tale you tell is a tall one, and predictably you’re (White men) the hero, the only cat with any lick-of-sense in the fairytale, matter-of-factly, have you tell it, (and only you) you’re the smartest guy in the room, and the only dude with any morals, values or guts.
I can’t seem to operate from such a “disconnected with US History” perspective you two effortlessly, and I mean without a thought nor hesitation expose, as if it’s the Goddamn truth, regardless if nobody believes your concocted n’ contrived alibis. It’s almost as if both of you have Amnesia, self-induced Amnesia, and neither of you see history . . as the rest of the world does
Here, Rush this is vintage you, rewriting US History 1860-1865. You’re attempting to erase what little “White guilt” there remains across theses no-longer, if ever United States of America with “White denial.”
“But despite all that, no other race has ever fought a war for the purpose of ending slavery, which we did. Nearly 600,000 people killed in the Civil War. It’s preposterous that Caucasians are blamed for slavery when they’ve done more to end it than any other race, and within the bounds of the Constitution to boot. And yet white guilt is still one of the dominating factors in American politics. It’s exploited, it’s played upon, it is promoted, used, and it’s unnecessary.
But wait, there’s more ; “A little history lesson for you. If any race of people should not have guilt about slavery, it’s Caucasians. The white race has probably had fewer slaves and for a briefer period of time than any other in the history of the world.”
Rush, what history book are you reading from?
And then you bring your enormous . . . knowledge to the Redskins ve Rednecks dispute;“You know, if it were really that upsetting to the fans, nobody’d be going to FedExField. But FedExField is sold out every week. They’re obviously not offending too many people, and yet you want the federal government to come in here with their jackbooted thugs or iron-fisted people and do what?”“
So the advocates, the people who don’t like the Redskins name are just a bunch of PC jerks. They’re politically correct little liberals who want the federal government to come in (crying) ‘We don’t like Redskins, and we don’t want have to see it!’”
Rush, if you had your druthers, based on US popular opinion my grandmother would still today give her seat up to you on the bus . . . as if you ride a bus.
Now hang on, if you think that’s a collection of little White lies, dig Ted’s delusional observations of a post-civil rights America; On a recent episode of Alex Jones’ radio show, Nugent kindly offered some advice to African-Americans. “they can fix the black problem tonight,” if they would put their “heart and soul into being honest, law-abiding, [and] delivering excellence at every move in your life.” According to Nugent, “I would like to reach out to black America and tell them to absolutely reject the lie of Al ‘Not So’ Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson, and the Black Panthers and Eric Holder and Barack Obama. They are enslaving you and the real shackles on black America, 100 percent of the time come from black America.”
Nugent concluded by claiming that, “racism against blacks was gone by the time I started touring the nation in the late 1960s” and by the 1970s, nothing of consequence existed to deter or compromise a black American’s dream if they got an alarm clock, if they set it, if they took good care of themselves, they remained clean and sober, if they spoke clearly, and they demanded excellence of themselves and provided excellence to their employers.”
What America Ted have you been touring-through for the last half century?
Unbelievable! . . . did you catch the “if they took good care of themselves, remained clean and sober, if they spoke clear’ . . . ‘ I’ve no other choice than to ponder . . . how many millions upon millions of White folks agree with you two son of a bitches?”
I honestly believe I’ve never been as insulted as I am by this statement. I don’t want to get my hands dirty dissecting and dismantling it piece-by-pathetic piece. No, I just like to offer a heartfelt and sincere “FU” to Ted, face to face . . .. the misplaced arrogance oozing from that comment is appalling . . . Ted, you need to be straightened-out, and I’m the man to do it, the son of a 1968 South Central LA Black Panther/a Che-Lumumba Communist Party member, and if Alex Jones, Hannity, Rush or that Savage cat provide the stage, I’ll put a verbal foot in both your asses.
Any time , any place Ted, or Rush for that matter I’d love to go a few rounds with you mental midgets.
I can’t imagine either of you can even pretend you’re offering constructive criticism and even-handed advice, forget what it is which provides either of you with the knowledge or credibility to offer either? Both of your rudimentary simplistic observations are so-limited and naive . . . who can take your babbling serious . . . but other half-mad Rednecks.
I want you both to grasp the ominous “When push comes to shove “ corner you’re painting America into. I’m not going to say “if,” but rather “when” the streets run with blood, both you bastards need look no-further than a pocket-mirror to figure-out who, in-part is responsible for the violence and mayhem which will horrifically grip this country by the throat.
Matter-of-factly I’d wager you two weasels are deliberately fanning-the-flames of racial hatred, you’re tactically trying to “get rich” while igniting a fire which spreads from Boston to Austin, Long Beach to Miami Beach – you two want to see race riots which result in a racial purging, a ethnic cleansing of the American landscape and a return to the good ol days you both long-for.
Thanks you guys for verbally illustrating to Afro-Americans and other Americans-of-Color we’re expendable; that as quick as Rush can say “Nigga” you’ll lock us up, gun us down or send us to the four-corners of the globe to fight your wars of aggression and corporate conquest . . . for Black genocide is what Rush and the rest yearn to orchestrate.
Before I cut-off-the-lights, I well-understand what I’ve just cited is but a tidbit, a miniscule sampling of the slights n’ insults you guys deliver everyday – like UPS or FedEX, but as-of-late, since Obama secured a second-term, and Hillary . . . with her Latino VP await their 16-year run around the Oval Office – the venom has escalated – it’s like 180 proof hillbilly moonshine, and the everyday Fred n’ Barney are addicted and intoxicated with this White lightin’ hate.
Keep it up boys, you’ll sooner or later awake my sleeping Black and Brown people . . . .
