Obama slams Limbaugh

Obama opining on hate crimes:

“A certain segment has basically been feeding a kind of xenophobia. There’s a reason why hate crimes against Hispanic people doubled last year,” Obama said. “If you have people like Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh ginning things up, it’s not surprising that would happen.”

o rly?

Let’s talk about hate crime offenders.  Compare the FBI statistics on offenders versus population numbers.  White people are 80% of the population but only commit 57% of the hate crimes.  Black people are only 12% of the population, but commit 20% of the hate crimes.  And people of mixed race, like Obama?  Less than 2% of the population, more than 5% of the hate crimes.  Maybe hate crimes are being stirred up less by Limbaugh than, oh, say, Jeremiah Wright.

This guy is a bigger dunce than GWB ever was.

    I don’t believe Rev. Dr. Wright had a national platform to spew his so called hate message until FoxFakeNews decided to broadcast snippets over a million times. Well on the other hand Rush and the other simpletons over at FoxFakeNews has a platform to broadcast to millions of other questionable mmm viewers.

    If it’s true that black people commit a higher percentage of hate crimes than white people and if it’s also true that the white race-baiters have a national platform whereas the black ones don’t, that would indicate to me either that so-called hate speech doesn’t necessarily incite violence OR it indicates to me that white people show remarkable restraint in this regard compared to black people. Al Sharpton’s blather notwithstanding, I think it’s obvious that any race can engage in racism and I think that ethnic minorities, being more sensitive to race issues than white people, might very well have more race issues and perhaps commit more race related crimes than white people. If I had some Jew gold for every time I’ve heard people in the hood criticize Asians, Middle-Easterners, and Jews for selling them malt liquor and taking their Jew gold out of the ‘hood, I would have a lot of Jew gold.
