“I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: Slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back. I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.”
and there’s more..
Is Limibaugh racist?Â Read these and let me know what you think. And after you read them, take note how seriously certain conservative political candidates from Orange County and other parts of California use Rush’s comments as a blessing of conserverati.
