When Chicago Sun-Times Columnist Mary Mitchell called out Sarah Palin for inciting hate at her rallies, she got quite an angry response from Rush Limbaugh
“Mary Mitchell, a wuss, wimp columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times says that Sarah Palin should be censured. She says that ‘Sarah Palin should apologize to the Obama campaign and the American people for her role in bringing out the worst in her supporters.’ This is laughable.
“Come on, Mary. Grow up. This is the big leagues. How about the people in your party? I know you’re a Democrat, Mary Mitchell. You can’t deny it, all you liberal media people are Democrats. What about the incitement of this whole country that you and your fellow journalists have engaged in along with the Democrat Party? You have gendered up hate for this president. You have ginned up a despise for the US military. You have sought to convince the American people their country is worthless and sinking into an abyss. You have been doing it for six years.”
Limbaugh also called Mitchell a “racist nutball.”
Little did Rush know Mary Mitchell is neither a wimp nor a wuss. Her response?Chicago Sun-Times
When you step on a pig’s tail, it squeals. Rush Limbaugh is a squealer.
And why is he squealing?
Because John McCain and Sarah Palin are losing ground in a contest that they thought was theirs.
And they are losing it to a black man.
Of course, Limbaugh won’t say that. Instead, on Thursday he spent his time berating me for saying Palin needs to apologize for inciting crowds that hurled racial epithets at black members of the press.
I’m a “wuss, wimp columnist,” Limbaugh says.
So why would a multimillion-dollar squealer use his air time on a “wuss and a wimp?”
The reason Limbaugh is squealing like the pig he is, is because he’s the epitome of white privilege.
He can’t wrap his small mind around the fact that Barack Obama is kicking McCain’s butt in the polls.
To make matters worse, how dare a black woman ask a white woman who is on the GOP ticket to apologize for the inappropriate behavior of her supporters?
But my position is really a no-brainer.
Whenever a crowd gets whipped up to the point that they turn ugly and start hurling racist insults, it is common sense that the candidate moves to rein it in.
But McCain is so desperate to win, he’s feeding off of those angry crowds.
The squealer was among the first to demand that Barack Obama (Barack, Rush, not Barry) denounce his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, for comments deemed offensive to white people.
I repeat. Had Obama fans acted a fool the way McCain fans did, every pundit — with the squealer leading the way — would have demanded he offer some kind of apology.
I’m the “racist nutball,” but the squealer is the one who has made a fortune ridiculing black people at every opportunity.
But I have a voice, too. And all of Limbaugh’s bluster and all the calls of his rabid followers won’t be enough to silence me when bigoted bullies are running amuck.
Besides, I’m not running for VP. Limbaugh’s sorry-ass Palin is.
If Limbaugh wants to spend his time trying to bully me, as they say in my neighborhood, bring it.
I don’t care for Rush Limbaugh myself. And I think Ms. Mitchell nailed him here. I’m proud to say I’m from Chicago and this lady is my kind of people. You go girl!
