RUSH: To the audio sound bites. Let’s set this up in order, this is on Monday, nailed it so perfectly, this is what I said about the media and Tiger Woods.
RUSH ARCHIVE: Every talking head, every pundit, every sportswriter wants to talk about it, but they don’t have the guts to talk about it, and they’re waiting on me to bring it up so they can then rip me for talking about it while they then get their opinion. Every sportswriter and every pundit wants to talk about that, but they don’t have the guts to, and they’re waiting for me to because they think I’ll wade right into it, and then they can rip me for bringing it up while they offer their opinions on it. And I am not going there. I am not going to talk about it. The AP already went there but have you heard anybody else talking about it? No, you haven’t. They’re all waiting on me. I guaran-damn-tee you. They’ve been waiting since noon today, noon Eastern, with their pens and their computers and everything. They’ve been waiting for me to get into this.
RUSH: All right, and then on Monday, after setting this all up — if you remember Snerdley was trying to bait me into commenting on multiple stories in the State-Controlled Media about certain characteristics of the women allegedly having trysts with Tiger Woods. And Snerdley was dying to have me wade into this. I said, ‘No, Snerdley, I’m not going to do it because everybody is waiting for me to do it so they can jump on me while they talk about it. They just to want plaster me with the racist label.’ So this is what I said, and this is after playing a couple sound bites from Jesse Jackson upset at Obama at the high unemployment rate among black Americans and how Obama’s not doing anything about it. I said this.
RUSH ARCHIVE: I’ll tell you what’s going on here with this. The Reverend Jackson — and I got two more stories in the stack today about how black unemployment is through the roof, black unemployment is terrible, the black frame of mind is terrible, they’re depressed, they’re down, Obama is not doing anything for them. How is that hoax and change working for you? They’re all livid. I mean, they thought there was going to be an exact 180 degree economic reversal and it’s done nothing but get bad for everybody, but they’re especially upset about it because they look at him as one of them. And now they feel abandoned. And I’m sure Tiger Woods’ choice of females not helping ’em out with their attitudes there, either. Folks, about that, I got a great piece to share with you from Lisa Schiffren at the AmericanThinker.com on the parallels between Tiger Woods and Barack Obama. The theme is that both are the result of lies, falsely crafted images that are in no way representative of who they really are.
RUSH: All right, so there are two lines here that you have to know that the media fixated on. One of them was ‘the black frame of mind is terrible.’ The media wanted to characterize it as I was the one saying that, as an original thought. I was reporting that from mainstream media stories and audio sound bites from the Reverend Jackson, how mad he was. Then the line, ‘and I’m sure Tiger Woods’ choice of females is not helping them out with their attitudes there, either.’ I didn’t say that either. There were already multiple AP stories chronicling quotes from black women who are just livid about this. I didn’t talk about them because Snerdley was baiting me, but I knew what would happen. So last night, the Joy Behar Show on Headline News. She talked to Georgetown University sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson. Behar says, ‘Who better than Rush Limbaugh to understand and express the black experience.’
DYSON: Rush Limbaugh weighing in on the black experience is like David Duke speaking at a Holocaust memorial. H said, first of all, the black frame of mind. It’s pretty remarkably uninsightful, Obama’s performance and black people’s belief in his performance is still relatively very high. It has nothing to do with explaining what Tiger Woods is doing and what Tiger Woods is caught in right now. Secondly, he said the choice of women. Eugene Robinson weighed in talking about the Barbie doll stereotype there. He stopped short of talking about Tiger’s choice in terms of color, but let’s be honest, many African-American people are already conscious of the fact that Tiger has been loath to necessarily publicly embrace the black side of his experience. People are raising questions about what those choices might indicate about his struggles for a strong identity.
RUSH: All right. So Dyson compares me to David Duke and then goes on to validate everything I said after misrepresenting what I said. I did not originate the black attitude experience. That was all quotes from Jesse Jackson and other people. And the black frame of mind. See, they want to rip me. He went on and he offered the comments here, Tiger’s got a problem with his blackness. And I didn’t say it. Dyson is saying Tiger isn’t black enough, not down for the struggle. It’s like what they said about Obama, that’s what the ‘Magic Negro’ stuff was all about. They can’t wait for me to weigh in on this because the media template is, ‘We can nail Limbaugh on racism.’ I told you, folks, they were just waiting for this. Behar said, ‘People say Obama’s postracial, he’s all different races, every man at this point, and yet the African-American community is not that thrilled with him right now it seems to me.’ So she’s even validating what I said.
DYSON: Yeah, first of all, postracial is a myth and an ideal that doesn’t exist. What does that mean? We don’t live in a postracial world and we don’t want to. I don’t want to live in a world that tries to pretend they don’t know I’m black. My mother told me this morning I was, so you can join in the parade of acknowledgement. We want to be postracist not postracial. One black man in public housing in Washington, DC, cannot eradicate the entire history of racism in this country and unfortunately Tiger Woods has not been led necessarily to embrace that viewpoint and certainly address it in a very specific way throughout his career.
RUSH: All right, and exactly as I predicted, in the next bite Dyson uses me to express his own opinion, racist opinion of Tiger and his choice of women. Behar said, ‘Limbaugh said he’s attracted to a certain kind of woman and that would make him less popular. It seems to me white men are attracted to the same kind of bimbos when they’re on this kind of track of adulterous affairs.’
DYSON: Of course. And you make a brilliant point. The fact is that Tiger is attracted to the same kind of women that many of the golfers that he golfs with are. Tiger’s own choice may reflect his own inability to come to grips with certain aspects of his own multiracial element or it is the fact that he’s bought the lie of what’s beautiful.
RUSH: So these guys ‘bought the lie of what’s beautiful.’ So, ‘bought the lie of what’s beautiful,’ blonde babes. So, folks, just to show you, I know these people. I said they’re waiting for me to make a comment on it so that they can weigh in on it after the fact, call me the racist while they utter racist comments and that’s exactly what happened here.
