Rush Limbaugh: “Planned Parenthood, Doing The Job The Klan Could Never Finish”
Yesterday we brought you the story of the anti-abortion group that set up the lovely billboard in New York with the caption, “The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb.” Shockingly, the sign has since been taken down. Rush Limbaugh, hearing the story and knowing that there’s an opportunity here to ruffle more feathers than with a thousand “Michelle Obama is fat” jokes put together, jumped into the fray. He began his segment by proclaiming New York “the abortion capital of the world” and then just went from there.
Limbaugh discussed the same NYC Health Department findings that inspired the billboard which showed that blacks had the highest abortion statistics in the city. Then, with the race and abortion pots a’boiling, he added the perfect spice from his Liberal outrage recipe:
“You want to to really stir things up, talk about who owns Planned Parenthood and where are these clinics being put? They’re being put in black neighborhoods. Who’s making money? Who’s profitting? Liberals! Leftists, obviously! Pro-abortion types. And who’s defending them? Someone tries to put a billboard up defending them, they get run out of town by Al Sharpton and the rest. My God, folks, this is, this is…well, this is intolerable…Well, I don’t know if we should go that far. Planned Parenthood, doing the job the Klan could never finish? Is that what you’re thinking?”
Now, I like Rush Limbaugh. The time I would ever agree with a word that came out of his mouth is if he commented on the weather I was geographically nearby. But I still like him. And this is why. Listen to that clip as he laughs right before saying that Klan line. Not only does he laugh, he phrases his perfect quote as if it already were a freaking blog headline! That guy knows exactly what he wants.
So, yeah, here’s your outraged blog post, Rush. That was a ridiculous thing to say. But, come on, you knew that, didn’t you?
