Rush Limbaugh Defends Co-Author of Heritage Study Who Claimed Immigrant Hispanics Have Lower IQs (VIDEO)

In the wake of a highly-criticized study on immigration released by the conservative think tank Heritage Foundation, Rush Limbaugh has come out in defense of one of the study’s co-authors who has been accused of racism.

In 2009, co-author of the study Jason Richwine wrote that immigrant Hispanics have inherently lower IQs than ”the white native population,” going on to wonder if “Hispanics will ever reach IQ parity with whites.” The discovery of the dissertation was a huge blow to Heritage, forcing the think tank to release a statement saying that Richwine’s previous writings “do not reflect the positions of The Heritage Foundation.”

On his radio show this Thursday, Limbaugh said that Richwine’s previous writings “are something that we ought to consider when analyzing  and coming up with immigration policies.”

“You’re not supposed to bring that kind of stuff up. You’re just not supposed to talk about it — that’s not politically correct,” Limbaugh said sarcastically. “Even if it’s true, you’re not supposed to bring it up.”

    My first question would be; How the hell does one write a piece of trash like that and qualify for a doctoral degree? That Limbaugh would defend it is no shocker to me, I would have been more surprised if he didn’t defend him. What I don’t understand is why he doesn’t come right out and say what he is hinting at, that he believes white English speakers to be of superior ethnic stock. I am reminded of a woman I was having a discussion with on another site a few months ago. Someone said something positive about France and she chimed in to tell us all that France was not all it was chalked up to be. The people, she said were for the most part incredibly stupid, since hardly anyone could even speak English!

    And Limbaugh wonders why sponsors are fleeing his sinking ship faster than rats on a actual sinking ship. Pretty soon Rush will be like Beck simply hosting internet based programs that don’t require sponsors because the government created Socialist internet is free to all.

    Rush was a bit more of an intellectual when he was strung out on pills.Not saying he was as smart as he pretended to be,just saying he had more wit with a few norco’s in him.But now he’s a bigger idiot then ever.Seriously Rush,if that is your name.Personally I think it’s what you’re looking for.Either way FLUSH,have you ever met or knew a Mexican.I don’t think I should be telling you this but you’re most likely not going to read this.But from my experience most immigrants never let on they understand English.That way you speak freely in front of them & they get to know the real you.For the most part you don’t expect much from them & since you pay them very little it all works out in their best interest.Seriously if you knew they understood you you would expect more but still at the meager wage.They know how the game is played for sure & you didn’t even realized you got played.You get what you pay for in my eyes.
