MSNBC Analyst: Rush Limbaugh ‘Represents The Confederacy’

Rush Limbaugh would have sided with the confederacy during the Civil War, according to MSNBC analyst Dorian Warren. Warren, a Columbia professor and fellow at the progressive Roosevelt Institute, explained that Limbaugh “represents the Confederacy. He would have been on that side that went to war around the question of slavery.”

Warren went on to argue that Limbaugh, not the Left, obsesses over race, claiming that the talk-radio host’s rhetoric during the debate over Obamacare demonstrates that “he’s the one who’s racializing when there is no race there.”

He was responding to Limbaugh’s criticism last week of President Obama’s remarks on the Trayvon Martin shooting — Limbaugh had argued that Obama’s impromptu speech was designed to stir racial division in America, and said that the racial narrative today diminishes the importance of America’s willingness to go to war over slavery.

During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
