Rush: Obama's Pastor Loaded With Hate

Friday, 23 May 2008 04:21 PM

By Phil Brennan

Rush Limbaugh lashed out at Barack Obama for comments Obama made at a Florida fundraiser saying Rush and Lou Dobbs were inciting xenophobia.

If he's looking for hate mongers, Limbaugh suggested, Obama should look at "his preacher, his spiritual adviser, [who] is loaded with hate."

Obama used Thursday's fundraiser at the Westin Diplomat near Fort Lauderdale, to attack Limbaugh and CNN's Dobbs for their militant stand on immigration policy charging that "a certain segment has basically been feeding a kind of xenophobia. There’s a reason why hate crimes against Hispanic people doubled last year.”

He then identified the culprits behind the hate crimes: “If you have people like Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh ginning things up, it’s not surprising that would happen.”

"My feelings are hurt here," Limbaugh said during his "Rush Limbaugh Show" Friday, adding, "I thought this guy was a unity candidate."

To see real xenophobia and racism, Rush advised, one needs only to look at South Africa: "The insanity of [Obama's] claims, is evidenced by what real racism — xenophobia — looks like in black-led South Africa, a country that is held to be the embodiment of the victory over racism.

"We have already covered the horrific racial violence, black-on-black, directed towards South African immigrants. After two weeks running, according to a report from the French News agency, violence is spreading: 'A wave of anti-immigrant violence in South Africa spread to Cape Town on Friday . . .'"

This, said Limbaugh, "is real xenophobia. This is real racism."
