Rush Limbaugh has sunk to a new low with an outrageous race-based rant. Media Matters is calling on YOU to tell Limbaugh to apologize for his latest smear by signing this petition.
According to a press release from Media Matters, Limbaugh said:
Democrats "want to get us out of Iraq, but they can't wait to get us into Darfur [...] There are two reasons. What color is the skin of the people in Darfur? It's black. And who do the Democrats really need to keep voting for them? If they lose a significant percentage of this voting bloc, they're in trouble."
He continued with a ridiculous comparison to and politicization of Democrats' support of Mandela's fight against apartheid in South Africa:
"...So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandels - who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing."
