You guessed it: Because they’re black.
In this searing clip, Keith Olbermann smacks down Limbaugh and his racist comments (the fun starts at 2:10). More than Glenn Beck and his ridiculous new job as a college professor (Olbermann’s “worse” person award), Rush Limbaugh earns Olbermann’s coveted “Worst Person in the World” award.
Among other odious comments, Limbaugh ranted on his weekend radio show:
[Obama] wouldn’t have been voted president if he weren’t black. Somebody asked me over the weekend, “Why does somebody earn a lot of money, have a lot of money?” I said it’s because he’s black.
It gets worse.
There’s a lot of guilt out there, to show we’re not racists, we’ll make this person wealthy and big and famous and so forth….
Thanks for explaining it all (and for using small words), Rush.
And thanks to Olbermann for doing what he does, drawing our attention to racist remarks like these ones, hiding in plain sight.
