In what would be a shocking display of racism if it came from any other person, Rush Limbaugh yesterday told his listeners that Mitt Romney got booed while speaking at the NAACP because he’s white and they’re ignorant.
Note: Rush Rush Limbaugh calls the NAACP the “National Association For The Advancement Of Liberal Colored People.”
A few excerpts from Limbaugh’s radio show yesterday:
Now, by the way, this Snow White business, that’s not me. I’m projecting. I’m saying that’s how he’s viewed inside the NAALCP convention.
Romney goes in there today, and he sounded like Snow White with Testicles. That’s not what this bunch wants to hear.
They don’t know what’s in [Obamacare.] They don’t care what’s in it. All they know is it’s Obama’s plan, and here comes Snow White with Testicles in there ripping it to shreds, and so they’re booing him.
Rush Limbaugh said Mitt Romney’s speech Wednesday to the NAACP fell flat because it was “over these people’s heads” and that the group booed the Republican candidate, who “sounded like Snow White with testicles,” simply because he’s white.
Limbaugh portrayed the crowd at the NAACP’s annual convention in Houston as ignorant of what was good for them and susceptible to pandering from Obama and other Democratic politicians.
“This group wants to hear about tax increases and bigger government to take care of people,” he said, according to a transcript. “They don’t want to hear about self-reliance, they don’t want to hear about free enterprise. Free enterprise means you’ve gotta do it yourself. Free enterprise means it’s up to you. Free enterprise means you’re on your own. This group doesn’t want to hear that. I don’t think Romney got a single vote in here today.”
Limbaugh said Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have received standing ovations from black audiences by pandering. In contrast, Romney “sounded like Snow White with testicles. That’s not what this bunch wants to hear.”
“I would love to see somebody poll the conventioneers at the NAALCP and find out how many of them realize that they’re not getting free health care under Obamacare,” the conservative host continued. “That, in fact, they’re gonna be fined for not buying health insurance. I wonder how many of them know.” Limbaugh then cited “anecdotal” evidence from his “rich and powerful friends that owned and own businesses” that workers asked them after the Supreme Court decision if they would get free health care.
