During a segment on Tuesday’s edition of The Rush Limbaugh Show, host Rush Limbaugh, like his fellow conservative pundit Bill O’Reilly, thinks the Obamas need to just get over slavery.
Limbaugh’s comments came just after the First Lady’s DNC speech, where she marveled at a how an African American family now occupies the White House, a government building that was built by black slaves.
“They cant stop talking about slavery, and largely in a context of, ‘Hey, you know what? It isn’t settled yet.’ And, ‘Hey, you know what, we haven’t fixed it yet,’” Limbaugh said.
“I mean, that’s their starting point, and I think that’s a no-win situation for us because we’ve made great strides. This country has made phenomenal strides since then. Undeniable. And we’re one of the only countries on Earth that has. Great Britain being the other. This country has done more for and organized for minorities than any other nation on earth.”
That’s how I hear the Obamas. They love to wax eloquent about the early days and how they were 3/5 of a person, even though they never have been 3/5 of a person. He doesn’t even have any slave blood. She does, but he doesn’t, but they will admit they’re never going to let it go.”
