When Will Michael Steele & Co Disavow Limbaugh’s Haiti Comments?

Post image for When Will Michael Steele & Co Disavow Limbaugh’s Haiti Comments?

Yesterday and today, I wrote about Rush Limbaugh’s hateful, racist statements about President Obama wanting to help the people of Haiti.

Obama will use Haiti to boost credibility with “light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country,” the radio host predicted.

What’s amazed me is that no one in a leadership position on the right has demanded Limbaugh recant, or apologize. Think about how much garbage the right spewed over Senator Harry Reid’s comments about Obama. While they were inappropriate and unfortunate, and pulled the curtain back on how in the dark ages Reid actually, is, they were not malicious.

The right, however, lives on malice. And yet Michael Steele, Chairman of the RNC, who said quite a bit about calling for Reid to resign, has not uttered one word about Limbaugh’s comments, which were far worse than Reid’s.

At least the  on-the-record racist, Pat Buchanan, was offended, saying, Limbaugh’s comments were “deeply insensitive.”

And what of Pat Robertson’s disgusting, ‘Haiti deserves the earthquake because they made a “pact with the devil” – “true story”‘ statement yesterday? Who has come out publicly to denounce him and demand an apology (aside from the very eloquent Haitian Ambassador.)

I was listening yesterday to Rush (I find it funny the stupidity he spouts) and he actually told someone not to give money to charities for Haiti because we already do through income taxes and they are still in poverty. I could not believe that even he could be that cold hearted!

Will Steele denonuce Rush? Probably not. That would require a modicum of backbone and integrity, neither of which has ever been in evidence in Mr Steele. He would rather go after a guy (Reid) who by his actions (in the senate) has been anything but a racist or insensitive than to repudiate this swine (Limbaugh) who is actually campaigning to not support the relief effort towards millions of poor (mostly black) suffering people in their hour of unimaginably dire circumstances.

After the ass whooping Steele got from Limbaugh back when he was forced to apologize for calling him 'an entertainer' and 'incendiary', I highly doubt he will summon the moxy to speak to truth at this point. Rush has become the defacto leader of the Republican mindless masses, sent to force feed the party line to the faithful in easily digestable sound bites. It's a shame that there is even an appetite for his vile rhetoric but fear brings out the worst in people.
