El Rushbo spoke out about the use of the N-word on his radio show yesterday. He talked about Barkley, Shaq and the sports media itself. As usual he minced no words when it comes to who can and can’t use the ‘N’ and the hypocrisy of it all!

See if you agree or disagree with what he had to say below, as well as what Charles Barkley had to say about this subject too. – This report is via DC:

On his Monday radio show, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh reacted to the debate in the sports media over whether it is ever appropriate to use the “n-word.”

“Do you know, folks, there’s actually a debate going on on ESPN and throughout the sports world over who can use the ‘n-word’ when and how, and who can’t when and how?” Limbaugh said. “No, and this is just part of the whole thing of turning me off to football and sports in general. In the first place, you have this generation of journalists from the coddled generation. I think some players, too.”

Limbaugh called to his listeners’ attention comments from TNT NBA commentator Charles Barkley from last week in which Barkley blamed “white America” for attempting restrict his speech.

“They’re trying to take out the actual realities of life and the way people are built to sanitize everything, and you can’t,” he said. “Now we’re getting into this televised discussion of who can and who can’t use the ‘n-word’ and how. Let me just give you three examples of this — and, frankly, this is just reprehensible to me. Call me a fuddy-duddy if you want, but I will not sit around and watch this kind of stuff. I’m not going to get caught up in it, and I’m certainly not going to weigh in and have an opinion on it. First, TNT, ‘Inside the NBA,’ the anchor Ernie Johnson speaking with Charles Barkley about Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes having to apologize after he was fined for using the ‘n-word’ in a Tweet after he was ejected from a game Wednesday night. Ernie Johnson says, ‘Charles, what do you want to get off your chest about this?’”

Limbaugh disputed Barkley’s claim that it was “white America” and said it was “white liberals” that wanted to police vernacular.

“Of course it’s not the same, but Chuck — and I can call you Chuck because I know you. It’s what his friends call him. Chuck, it’s not ‘white America’ trying to insinuate themselves into what you can and can’t say. It’s your good buddies on the left who are doing this. It’s your good buddy liberal Democrats who are trying to force you to speak the way they think you should, not white America. It’s white liberals who, in their own minds, still run their own versions of plantations. They’re the ones trying to force all this political correctness on you. They’re the ones trying to take your locker room away from you. They’re the ones trying to take the basketball court away from you. They’re the ones trying to take YOU away from you. It isn’t ‘white America.’ Well, what a crock! This is on a televised basketball game. You have to sit here and listen to this.”

Limbaugh also referred to former NBA center Shaquille O’Neal remarks on the issue, who echoed the same sentiments as Barkley.

“So then they went out and they found Shaq,” he continued. “TNT, ‘Inside the NBA,’ during a discussion about Matt Barnes of the Clippers having to apologize after he was fined for using the n-word in a Tweet, after he was ejected from a game Wednesday night. After Barkley says that as a black man, he’s going to use the n-word and he’s going to continue to use the n-word and white America can’t stop him and it doesn’t matter what’s in hip-hop music, Shaquille O’Neal then had this to say.”

Also joining the chorus of sports commentators defending the use of the “n-word” was “Pardon the Interruption” co-host Michael Wilbon. Wilbon vented his frustration along the same lines.

“After how many years of America being told the word is not allowed, the word is totally prohibited, now we’ve got the sports media weighing in saying it is never permissible,” Limbaugh said. “That word conjures up the worst aspects of America, and that word is never permissible, and here come the black brothers, ‘Oh, yes, it is when we say it. We’re going to say it, and you white Americans, you can’t going to take it away!’ Chuck, Shaq, it isn’t white Americans trying to force their way of thinking on you. It’s your buddies on the left. Make no mistake about it. Now, you may think yourself on the left. You may think yourself a Democrat or a liberal or whatever, and if you do, it just means you have no idea who actually is lined up against you.”

“It’s not white America,” he continued. “Most of white America frankly couldn’t care any less about this other than what it means to the overall cultural decay that may be taking place here. But the political correctness, Chuck, that you’re all bummed out here about? Everybody trying to take your word away from you? It’s white liberals, Chuck. They’re the ones that run pieces on this. Here’s Michael Wilbon. Now, Michael Wilbon was among the group of people who said I had no business being in the NFL. Michael Wilbon believed a bunch of made-up quotes attributed to me, things I never said about blacks and slavery and so forth.”

  1. I, Bluto, am offended……I want everyone to know that I have never used the “N” word………I am appalled at the “N’s” that use the “N” word…..that word is disgusting and should never be used even by the “N’s”………

    and that racist bitch Paula Deen…….how dare she use the “N” word……why that “N” that stuck gun in her face and demanded money 30 years ago was just trying to earn a living…….he needed to support his 5 baby’s mamas and all those little “N’s”……I was beside myself when she called this enterprising young “N” the “N” word…….

    it’s people like Paula Deen that make me just boil……..s

    we need more “N’s” like this guy………….


    • Bluto….Just substitute the word ‘jigger’….drives ’em wild! A jigger of this..a jigger of that. “Hey bartender, I’ll take me a jigger of that there Old Kentucky Coon Sauce!”

      If there’s more than one of them just say …”Hey look! A jiggle!” They’ll be so preoccupied looking for the white chick in the tight sweater it’ll pass right over their heads.

  2. I’m -ot using the ‘N’ word a-y lo-ger myself. I- fact, I pla- to correct a-yo-e who uses that i- a-y co-text i- the future! Yes, we will survive without ‘N’s,’ but how are -egroes goi-g to fu-ctio- without a full alphabet?

    Fact is, how do they fu-ction using ebo-ics? Good thi-g there are-‘t too ma-y curse words that use -s!

  3. Limbaugh is right……it’s not the white people that are trying to get rid of the “N” word and calling out the “N’s” that use the “N” word……white people I think for the most part could care less about “N’s” using the “N” word……it’s the dumb-ass liberals…..those fools on the left that are trying to make everyone else be politically correct like them……..hypocrites

    we have all heard of the latest bullsh!t the politically correct assholes are making a stink about……the Redskins…….

    they won’t succeed nor should they…..they’re just assholes that don’t have anything else to do and they think they can go after anything that they can vent their “””fake””” anger over………..their all upset over the name of a football team……it’s fake…….

    it’s the same with the “N” word……nobody cares….the libtards can go to hell for all I care…….dumb-ass bastards……just causing trouble for the sake of causing trouble…………..this is more fake controversy………

    liberal bastards……….


  4. Spurwing Plover says:

    Getting so tired of all these whinners claiming we owe them for Slavery which was ben over for over 100 years i suggest they just leave

  5. The N word is very simple. Whites want Black people to get in the same trouble they do for saying the N word. Whites really hate that the word is socially acceptable for Black people to use. A lot of whites don’t like being told what they can’t do by a black person. That questions their identity.

    Spurwing Plover, as far as slavery, you should know that every group has been giving reparation but black people. Jews, native americans, etc. What makes slavery any different?

    • Feel free to give as much of your wealth to blacks. I will not and rather see every one of them dead or shipped out before we do at any cost.

  6. Spurwing Plover says:

    Liberals tend to believ that Fre Speach is only for them any nobody else

  7. Wow…where is everybody today?

    Oh wait, never-mind…still answering liberal idiots on a four month old thread. – It sure do get tiring.

  8. This is America, we built this place so that somewhere on this Earth every person will be recognized as equal, where they all follow the same laws, and for the most part get treated the same.
    About this “N” word nonsense and who should be allowed to say it.
    Like Bush said about the Tax cuts, it’s no good unless it applies to everybody.
    Personally Lazlo thinks that the Idea that a word can hurt your feelings, is a big load of crap.

    Outrage over the race of a person saying a word is racist on its face.

    So, if a person says a certain word to another person, it is the option of that person it is directed at to take offense or not. Otherwise one must admit that they are not in control of their faculties and should be locked up for the public welfare.

    If the skin color of the person saying this word is a factor in the outcome of the decision to be offended or not; then their own Racism is the reason they are offended.

    Inversely, if they are immune to offense because the skin color of the person saying the same word; then again it is the Racism in the person hearing the word that plays a factor in their decision to be offended or not.

    If its good for Charles Barkley, then its good for Paula Deen.
    That’s what’s called being fair.

  9. Blacks don’t really hate the ‘N-word,’ they just hate it when whitey uses it.


  10. My kids call them Canadians. Tasteless joke by a 12 year old. Mom those crappy apartments are called coondominiums. I laughed all the way home.

  11. Rush nailed it. The N word is used by blacks as a term of endearment among themselves. Remember the movie “Malibou’s Most Wanted?” Perfect example. Also liberals want to get into the locker room and make these brutes act like nice little boys.
    Remember the trial of Mark Fuhrman? I’m surprised O J wasn’t awarded damages for mental anguish.

  12. Reminds me of an old joke : A Chinese guy enters a bar, say to the black bartender- get me a jigger n****r! The black bartender says ‘wait a minute. I deal with a lot of assholes but you have crossed the line. Why don’t YOU get on the other side of this bar and get a taste of you’re own medicine!’ So the Chinese guy walks around the bar and the black bartender takes a stool and says ‘alright you stupid chink – get me a drink’ Chinese guy says ‘Oh so sorry, can’t serve n***ers’ Hahahahahaha. An old joke. I didn’t say it was a good one.

  13. Your joke aptly illustrates the silliness in all these names. Back in kindergarten we were taught: ” sticks and stones may break our bones but names can never hurt us.”

  14. Okinawa Marine says:

    What ever happened to:

    Sticks and Stones can break your bones but words will never hurt ME!”

    This is also a double standard, I will always say what I want, it will never go away!
