Limbaugh on Darfur, Mandela, etc.
From Media Matters via Talking Points Memo:
LIMBAUGH: Here’s [caller] in Lake Orion, Michigan. Thank you for calling. Great to have you on the EIB Network.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. It’s great to talk to you. I talked to you
once before. I’ve been listening to you for a couple of years now, and
I think I’m getting brighter, but there’s a lot to be learned. I know
I’m no expert in foreign affairs, but what really confuses me about the
liberals is the hypocrisy when they talk about how we have no reason to
be in Iraq and helping those people, but yet everybody wants us to go
to Darfur. I mean, aren’t we going to end up in a quagmire there? I
mean, isn’t it — I don’t understand. Can you enlighten me on this?
LIMBAUGH: Yeah. This is — you’re not going to believe this, but
it’s very simple. And the sooner you believe it, and the sooner you let
this truth permeate the boundaries you have that tell you this is just
simply not possible, the better you will understand Democrats in
everything. You are right. They want to get us out of Iraq, but they
can’t wait to get us into Darfur.
LIMBAUGH: There are two reasons. What color is the skin of the people in Darfur?
CALLER: Uh, yeah.
LIMBAUGH: It’s black. And who do the Democrats really need to keep
voting for them? If they lose a significant percentage of this voting
bloc, they’re in trouble.
CALLER: Yes. Yes. The black population.
LIMBAUGH: Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa,
you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them.
You stand behind Nelson Mandela — who was bankrolled by communists for
a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to
Ethiopia. You do the same thing.
CALLER: It’s just — I can’t believe it’s really that simple.
