Dittohead Challenge from Media Matters

Some guy with an obvious inability to think for himself from “Media Matters” made this pathetic challenge.  The “right-wing” sent me, a member of the B-team, to set him straight. (Note: Although I am the guy who most recently discovered that Rush Limbaugh never made one of the alleged racists quotes.) 

So here’s the challenge, and it’s open to anyone within the right-wing; Andrew Breitbart, Michelle Malkin, McCarthy, Glenn Beck, Limbaugh himself. Anyone can take a shot. But could somebody from the right-wing please–please–take a few minutes and explain what Limbaugh was talking about when he made this comment earlier this year:

“We are being told that we have to hope [Obama] succeeds, that we have to bend over, grab the ankles … because his father was black.”

….”So that’s that challenge. Could somebody please explain what mental image Limbaugh was trying to paint with this comment, and specifically why people were supposed to be bend over and grab their ankles for Obama? Please explain what Obama’s father being black had to do with the bending and the ankle grabbing. And please explain why nobody connected with the NFL should take offense at Limbaugh’s suggestion that they also bend over and grab their ankles on account of Obama’s black father.”

OK, Mr. Eric Boehlert, pay attention. I’ll type slowly so that even you can understand.  Rush is saying that the liberals are using the fact that Obama is black to shield him from criticism–that anybody who desires his policies to fail will be branded a racist.  And that we have two choices, either bend over and take those policies which we hate so much, or be branded a racist for criticizing Obama.  It is all just the false horns of a dilemna that the liberals are trying to foist upon conservatives. 

See? That wasn’t so difficult to understand, now was it?  But it also wasn’t nearly as attention grabbing–it didn’t paint nearly the graphic illustration–of what the pernicious liberal ploy is attempting to do to us.  Somebody hearing my explanation would yawn and forget what I said ten seconds later. But you heard, and remembered, Rush’s illustration.  That’s why they pay him the big bucks, and why you probably donate your time in some cubicle at a dead-end job. 

You probably still don’t “get it” so I’ll break your “challenge” down even further.  “[Can somebody explain] specifically why people were supposed to be bend over and grab their ankles for Obama?” If conservatives cannot criticize The One’s agenda, they have to bend over and take it.  If conservatives are not allowed to criticize him, to hope his progressive agenda fails, and to actively work against his agenda without being branded as racists, then all that is left is to “bend over and take it.”  It’s not really a hard concept to grasp. Unless one is intentionally obtuse. 

Please explain what Obama’s father being black had to do with the bending and the ankle grabbing. ”  His father was black. If his father was white, as was his mother, nobody would be playing the race card.  Nobody would be claiming that any opposition to his policies was based on racism.  Conservatives would be free to attack him and his policies on the merits without being branded racists.  They wouldn’t be faced with a dilemna of either allowing him to do whatever he wants without criticism, or be branded as racists.  So see, his father’s race has everything to do with “the bending and the ankle grabbing.”

And please explain why nobody connected with the NFL should take offense at Limbaugh’s suggestion that they also bend over and grab their ankles on account of Obama’s black father.”  If they heard Rush’s entire monologue, instead of having idiots take a snippet out of context, they would have no reason to take offense.  Heck, if they would just bother to read my explanation it would all be so clear to them.  Perhaps then they would really take offense at the ones who are playing the race card.  People such as  you. Not because you are racists. Because you are liberals/progressives, and you have no compunction against lying or misrepresenting the facts in order to gain a political advantage. 

Thus endeth the lesson, grasshopper.  Return to your pathetic little cubicle and do whatever it is that you do to earn your minimum wage. 

[This pathetic little attention seeker even published a follow up to the original challenge.]

  2. Rush Limbaugh: Transcript of radio broadcast from Oct. 14, 2008
    By Keith Vance

    Editor’s note: This is a verbatim transcript of Limbaugh explaining how ACORN, Barack Obama, Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright are all involved in a radical leftwing conspiracy to teach black kids to hate America.

    From the time of my birth 57 years ago to today, this country has grown and expanded, prosperity has opened its doors for more and more people around the world, not just people born in this country.

    We know the stories of asians immigrating and running rings around people born in this country academically in California. We know all about the immigration, legal and illegal, to get into the country. We know that the standard of living has risen. We know that technological advancement is going along at light speed.

    And yet, during this period of time, whether it be the last 57 years, or the last 20 years, it seems that the majority of the black population has remained angry, frustrated and behind – they’ve been left behind. They’re acting like they’ve been left behind, and of course we’ve heard that this is because of racism, natural systemic institutional racism in America. We’re unfair. That this country is just horrible and rotten.

    Do you ever ask yourself how it is that people not even born here can come here and in a few short years begin prospering in school, they’re own business, and yet people who are born in this country somehow have been raised to hate it – to still think they’re back in the days of slavery.

    I actually think, after studying all this ACORN stuff, and reading what Stanley Kurtz has written about this, I actually believe that what has taken place here, in addition to liberal Democrat legislation – such as the great society and the war on poverty, which a lot of people would now acknowledge really busted up the black family by the government taking the place of a husband and father – he’s free to roam around and bear no responsibility. The mother remained the mother, she got the financial assistance from this legislation from the federal government. The federal government became the father. The father didn’t have to hang around in order for the kids to be OK – depending on how you define OK.

    And as you study more and more of this ACORN stuff you find that it has been part of an entire movement that has been going for two maybe three decades right under our noses. We thought that it was just liberal welfare policies and all that that kept blacks from progressing while other minorities grew and prospered but no. It is these wackos from Bill Ayers to Jeremiah Wright to other anti-american afro-centric black liberation theologists, working with ACORN, and Barack Obama is smack dab in the middle of it. They have been training young black kids to hate hate hate this country. And they trained their parents before that to hate hate hate this country. It was a movement. It was a Bill Ayers anti-capitalist anti-american educational movement. ACORN is how it was implemented right under our noses.

    They’re doing far more folks than just cheating when it comes to elections and registration. They’re in deep in this mortgage crisis. ACORN and Obama, and Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, the Democrat Party have their fingerprints the sub-prime mortgage crisis. The whole concept of affordable housing was people who can’t afford a mortgage are going to get one, because America is unfair.

    It has been a movement. It has been a religion. And Obama and Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers were all up to their big ears in it.

    This is only one example, he real sounds like America’s Uniter, not a Divider, when it comes to race relations. Rush will not sue because he knows they will file a counter compliant and he will be deposed and like Nixon he knows that the tapes will sink him. For so many years he has spent his time on the radio mis-labeling and/ or mis-characterizing others. Poor little “self-centered” Rush, no out except creating the myth that everyone is out to get him. Sorry sucka you can only yourself to blame for your idiot comments. He finally had his judgment day where the NFL (Not For Limbaugh) wins and tubby loses. Tee, hee…
