Rush Limbaugh’s race baiting appears to show no signs of letting up. In a string of recent racially charged incidents, Limbaugh has has done everything from creating a parody of the famous movie, Driving Miss Daisy, titling it Driving Miss Nancy featuring Nancy Pelosi and Jim Clyburn in the Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman roles, to calling Obama’s presidency, “graffiti on the walls of American history,” and illustrating the statement on a picture of Mt. Rushmore.
However, the radio host fails to take responsibility for any of his actions, choosing instead, to pass the blame to those who disagree with his views. His most recent scapegoat is Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who has expressed outrage over Limbaugh’s take on various vernacular, in particular a clip in which he makes fun of Reverend Al Sharpton.

“I think that Rush Limbaugh, the seriousness of what he does aside from the comedic way he tries to play it, is he is trying to use race to polarize this country and turn the country against the president at a time that we have very critical issues,” responded Sharpton, “The government has a right to protect free speech, but they also have an obligation to hold standards where American people are not subjected to this,” he continued.
Sharpton, who has a new Sunday morning talk show debuting November 21st, and MSNBC host Ed Shultz alluded to the fact that Limbaugh is apparently, “too big to fail” and called for FCC regulations on the radio show. If in fact Limbaugh is ‘too big to fail’, then it is safe to say racism on America’s radio stations is here to stay.
