Well, that didn’t take long. Days after nine African Americans were murdered in cold blood by a psychopathic racist, and literally hours after the debate began to focus on getting rid of the Confederate flag, Rush Limbaugh has leapt to the defense of persecuted white people everywhere.
“It’s [racism] not going to stop because of the Confederate flag,” said Limbaugh. “Because it’s not about the Confederate flag, it is about destroying the South as a political force.”
In Limbaugh’s mind, ‘leftists’ are attempting to equate the South with Dylann Roof, and will soon be moving on to the American flag in an attempt to turn the country into latte sipping homosexuals. Why? Because they hate America:
Thankfully, Rush Limbaugh is losing significant steam as a person of relevance, mostly because advertisers have been running away from him since the Sandra Fluke debacle. Still, his insensitivity knows no bounds and he continues to inject himself into the national debate to cause maximum offense. Why does Limbaugh do this? Possibly because he actually believes the garbage that comes out of his mouth and truly wants to defend those he sees as being persecuted. Most likely though, Limbaugh continues to insult liberals, women and minorities because he is a gigantic asshole.
