Rush Limbaugh’s ‘Nigga’ Comment No Surprise To Americans (VIDEO)


By now, most of us have heard about Limbaugh announcing to the world this week, that it’s okay for him to use, ‘Nigga’ on the air. He says it’s no longer racist. Wow, is he in for a surprise. This probably won’t be his downfall, but it certainly won’t help the failing am talk show host. He is known for promoting  racism, sexism and gay-bashing bigotry. Going downhill is not a new direction for him. In one year, he has pretty much lost all of his major sponsors due to consumer boycotts, petitions and protests. Most of his ads these days are by companies and organizations that are either getting ad space at great discount  – or for free. And many company’s have reported to boycott groups, that they received offers to advertise for free on Limbaugh’s show — and they turned those offer down. Gotta love that.

But it’s not just Limbaugh to blame. Many feel CEO Bob Pittman, and President John Sykes, of Clear Channel, are as unsavory as Limbaugh. Clear Channel broadcasts hate radio on their 600 stations nationwide. The mega media empire also airs Glenn Beck and Shaun Hannity, which tells you a bit about their character.  Like Rush Limbaugh, Pittman and  Sykes are also paying the price. Clear Channel has lost hundreds of millions in revenue, this past year. They will probably be hit even harder this year as Limbaugh is getting worse; in desperation, perhaps? This latest racial slur was such bad form, especially when the majority of the country is still feeling the painful sting of racism from Zimmerman’s not guilty verdict. Media Matters published a page on the backlash.

Clear Channel also owns the lucrative iHeart Radio network, but as more and more big name artists are realizing the connection to Limbaugh, things will get ugly. Some boycott groups are now contacting artists who play on iHeart Radio and urging them to boycott Clear Channel as well. I don’t thing Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Green Day, and Mariah Carey will appreciate iHeat is helping to subsidize Limbaugh’s public deprecation of  blacks, hispanics, women, gays, lesbians, the disabled…

I’m not sure why, but someone decided to make a very bad rap song about Limbaugh’s ‘nigga’ remark. It was to mock and make fun of he hateful radio host, but it was so distasteful, I  decided to delete the 35-second video. Why add bad on to bad.
