Exclusive: Top 10 Racist Rush Limbaugh Quotes
Washington — Earlier this week, shock-jock Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves to talk about the “soft” label the Democratic Party and its base is branding President Obama with after he extended the controversial Bush Tax Cuts.
In the interview, he even takes a shot at our television network, TV One, saying it isn’t worth “salt,” and calls popular host of Washington Watch Roland Martin, “angry.”
And then on TV One’s Washington Watch with Roland Martin… What the hell network is this? TV One? What is TV One? Can somebody tell me what TV One is? (interruption) Well, I know Roland used to be on CNN. He used to be angry on CNN all the time. TV One just comes on at night in some places? (interruption) Well, I know what NY1 is, and this isn’t it. I never heard of TV One.
He continued his rant against Martin and the Network by saying:
If you can’t say “bitch” on TV One, then — ’cause “bitch slapped” is what they really mean, not “punk slap.” If you can’t say that on TV One then TV One’s not worth its salt because it’s cable.
In response, Washington Watch host Roland Martin exclusively told NewsOne: “I may send Rush an autographed poster and a TV One care package so he knows who we are. You can expect a response to Rush’s comments from me this Sunday on Washington Watch.”
The history between Limbaugh and NewsOne stretches a year as his listeners, and Rush himself, aren’t big fans of our site.
Below is one of the articles written by one of our top writers, Casey Gane-McCalla, which became an instant internet favorite and caught the attention of Mr. Rush Limbaugh and his associates. While we won’t elaborate any further, let’s just say Rush was not happy being labeled a racist and contacted us about this piece.
Here are some quotes our writer considered racist:
1. “Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?”

5. “They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?”
9. “We need segregated buses… This is Obama’s America.”
“Obama is an angry Black guy”
