Touré and John Legend sneer at ‘cognitive dissonance’ of black Rush Limbaugh fans

The big news here is that MSNBC host Touré actually acknowledges that black conservatives exist. But only so he and singer-songwriter John Legend can spit disdainfully at any black American who won’t march in lockstep with liberalism.

Listening to Limbaugh while black? Heresy! Clearly the poor dears don’t know what’s good for them like Legend does.

And there’s liberal tolerance in a nutshell: No respect for individuality. No respect for different opinions. And definitely no respect for black Americans who refuse to kowtow to leftist thought police like Touré and Legend.

Recently on Twitchy:

    Oh get real! As if Toure has time for this, he s far too busy pointing out how unfortunate he is, how the man is keeping him down and how he can’t get a break because he’s black.
    Geez, doesn’t he have an elderly relative who could kick his ars for being such an annoying, non-stop, whining p**sy?

    Turde is a race-baiter at its finest. Seems to me Turde and Company are aching for some kid of race war. Which is ironic, since his community can’t stop killing each other.

    • Blake Waymire

      Haven’t you listened to the segment of the black community that Toure belongs to? They absolutely want a race war, ending with the enslavement of non-blacks (don’t fool yourselves into thinking they want only whites to pay),

      And do note that I say “segment” because I acknowledge that blacks can have differing opinions, and that one segment has made it’s views very well-known.

  • peteee363

    if mlk was alive today, he would be among rush’s biggest fans. he was not in the race hustling business, he was a man among men. he must be spinning in his grave seeing todays crop of race hustlers.

    • TocksNedlog

      MLK is spinning so fast, somebody should be harnessing him as a power source.

      • Rabid

        Harnessing him???? THAT’S RAAAACISSST!!! … :):)/sarc.

        • Avey Owyns

          LOLOL!

    • Aeronerauk

      Well that’s not true at all. MLK was a race hustler himself, not to mention communist, philanderer and plagiarist. He would be solidly in the Obama corner. Really, deifying the man is just sucking up to blacks who will never, at least in any substantive number, support conservative causes.

      • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

        No, he wanted black people to be equal and he didn’t want them to have special treatment either but just the same rights as everyone else which is why he would be appalled at where black people are today. Learn your history, conservatives were for the Civil Rights movement while Democrats stonewalled it. MLK was our friend.

        • metalmudd

          Uh, MLK was also all about Union Rights and Fair wages. He’d hate Limbaugh

        • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

          To metalmudd – If you read what he believed on those subjects though it is less progressive than what a lot of our so-called Republicans believe. I have no doubt that he would have moved more to the right on those subjects had he lived, if he would have seen the welfare state that black people were in now he would be ashamed. He wouldn’t condone the government keeping black people in a perpetual state of poverty.

          • SCinGB

            Can we really say that we have no doubt that he’d have moved to the right? Aeronerauk brings up some good points. MLK had some decidedly leftist traits & beliefs. Our culture has veered VERY far off to the left since he died. Back in his day, Jesse Jackson and others were pro-life Dems. Don’t forget that blacks voted what, 98% for Obama? He could very well be lock step with the Obama admin if he were alive today.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            But he preached self-reliance above all else, he didn’t want black people to be seen as victims but as equals. Closer to his death he did talk about having a set minimum wage(which by today’s standards is pretty tame) but mostly because he wanted black people to at least be paid a certain wage which in the context of there still being racial hostility in the 60’s right after the Civil Rights Act made sense. I don’t believe he would condone black people being continually seen as victims, I believe his views would have been closer to what Bill Cosby’s are today. He wanted them to have all the opportunities to work and do things white people had, he would have seen black people seeing themselves as victims and collecting government payouts as a waste of their potential especially after his generation fought so hard for it.

    • $41341954

      MLK said at the height of the Vietnam War that the US was “the worlds greatest purveyor of violence.” Furthermore this excerpt is from his last speech to the SCLC:

      One day we must ask the question, “Why are there forty million poor people in America?” And when you begin to ask that question, you are raising questions about the economic system, about a broader distribution of wealth. When you ask that question, you begin to question the capitalistic economy. And I’m simply saying that more and more, we’ve got to begin to ask questions about the whole society. We are called upon to help the discouraged beggars in life’s market place. But one day we must come to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring. It means that questions must be raised. You see, my friends, when you deal with this, you begin to ask the question, “Who owns the oil?” You begin to ask the question, “Who owns the iron ore?” You begin to ask the question, “Why is it that people have to pay water bills in a world that is two thirds water?” These are questions that must be asked.

      I understand why everyone would like to claim his life because he was certainly a definite positive influence on the growth of this country, but to claim that he was a full-blown conservative because of the I Have A Dream speech is really wishful thinking when his later, and certainly more socialist, years are taken into account.

      • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

        MLK was a more moderate conservative but he understood hard work was the only avenue to success and he wanted black people to have a seat at the table so their hard work could lead to success also. I believe he took these more progressive views no matter how misguided they are in order to try to make things equal for black people, but I can say for sure he wouldn’t like what black culture has become today. Being a conservative also doesn’t make you necessarily “pro-war”(even though none of us actually want it, it can be necessary though) and I hope you remember that a progressive was in office during the Vietnam War during MLK’s day.

        • $41341954

          Did you read the quote above? He was talking about how capitalism doesn’t work and he was standing with the Viet Cong. Obviously war is not ideal, and no one ever wants to be a participant, but standing up for Communists? I’m pretty sure that isn’t a conservative position.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            I read the quote and saying we fight a lot of wars doesn’t necessarily mean he is “standing with the Viet Cong”, it means we fight a lot of wars. I don’t agree with it but there is a difference between not liking a war and supporting enemies, Hanoi Jane he was not. And as far as that quote on capitalism as I said he was trying to make things more equal for black people, I definitely don’t agree with it. My point that you have apparently missed is that had he lived and seen the fruits of the progressive agenda I believe he would have been outraged by it and would have leaned more to the right because at his core he believed in the tenants of conservatism which is hard work and personal responsibility and he didn’t want black people to be victims. He also was a God-fearing man who believed the teachings of God had a place in policy making, another thing people tend to forget when they are quick to label him a liberal.

          • $41341954

            It’s completely unfair and unrealistic to extrapolate MLK’s political views to today’s political climate, but if we’re playing that game, I think it’s unlikely who’s last campaigns were for equal housing and union rights moving in line with the Limbaughs of 2013.

            Why don’t we stop playing this game and appreciate MLK for what he actually was a Marxist who achieved amazing things and changed the world for the better. For the record, I am not using Marxist as a pejorative.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            He wasn’t a Marxist though, having a couple of progressive ideas when the majority of your views are conservative doesn’t make one Marxist. Chris Christie is a Marxist by your definition. And quit using Limbaugh as some boogeyman to trot out when you want to insult us, we are conservatives, we have been around a long time before Limbaugh or Fox News, and we actually are well versed in what we believe unlike you. It isn’t hard to figure out what MLK’s reaction to things would be if you know what he believed and what things he valued most.

          • $41341954

            Ok, tell me how this makes sense. This website, which we can all agree is Conservative, has a post defending Scalia’s critique of the Voting Rights Act, and you are saying that MLK would be a conservative? Now not all conservatives (or liberals) can be painted with a broad brush, but I would be willing to guess that MLK would be vehemently opposed to Scalia’s critique and the folks on the right that agree with him.

            Furthermore, how is someone that questions the merits of capitalism, sides with communists during war and sought to cobble together a multiracial army of the poor in his final Poor People’s Campaign, which was even seen as too radical by many of his contemporaries within the Civil Rights Movement, a conservative figure? If the conservative talkers of today (radio and television) were present in the 1960s, he’d be lampooned on a daily basis as an unrealistic ideologue.

            As I said above, it is impossible to extrapolate MLK’s career across the many different political movements in the 45 years after his death, and we should appreciate him for his tremendous positive effect on the US, and not try to coop his message (liberals and conservatives)

        • Brian

          MLK was an independent. He cared about what made sense,

          You know, white people buy more black music by in large than Black people do. Helps you to stay in touch huh?

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            Well, for one thing I don’t listen to rap. Second, I have black relatives and friends and probably know more than you have ever seen. I also have read and studied black culture and know some of the greatest conservatives are black(i.e. the ones that get vilified by the left and get called names like “Uncle Tom” and “House N-gger” by “tolerant” liberals) So maybe next time you should think before putting me in your box of stereotypes. kthnxbye

            Uh I’m Black.
            There is Nothing you could possibly tell me about BLACK Culture, so try again. By your own words you gather the experience second hand, therefore your knowledge is diluted.

            Admittedly there are some Black People that feel the need to align themselves with conservatives, their choice, but the wonderful word Token comes to mind..

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            Yes, but you said my knowledge of black culture comes from “rap music” which just shows your ignorance not mine. The reason a lot of black people are conservatives is because we treat them as equals not a skin color and not victims to be used as race-baiting political tools in order to get votes. Maybe the fact that you are part of the “victims” group clouds your judgment and your ability to be objective about it.

          • $44640340

            Just as i thought, you’re ignorant and borderline stupid.

            Which Right wing news outlet have you amassed that foolish ideology from? And whats worse is that you actually believe that BS. Just like you know NOTHING about black culture you know nothing about our politics or what we deem important to us. And to prove your dumbass comment on MLK…

            I was born and raised in Atlanta Georgia, my parents marched with Dr. King, My grandparents have been lifelong membersof Ebenezer Bapist, where Dr. KING preached. I have a uncle that graduated with Dr. King. So I’m far more versed in his beliefs than you are or ever would be.

            He was a Republican for one reason only, at the time the Souther Democrats did not want Blacks to vote, they even refused to allow Julian Bond (his neighbor & civil rights activist) into the state capital after he’d won election.

            Things changed in the south and the Republican party changed they began to adopt that racist “southern strategy” with Richard Nixon & Barry Goldwater… Democrats appealed to minorities more. But im sure (from one of your previous comments) You actually believe Dr. KING was a Marxist… So logic and truth is lost on you.

            ^This comment proves just how ignorant you are. I have done nothing but defend MLK and said he is NOT a Marxist. If you had read anything I have been saying you would know that. And if you actually believe the so-called “Southern Strategy” magically turned all Republicans into racists then I have a bridge to sell you. And please don’t lecture me on logic & truth after saying stuff like that.

            (Last one; I’m finding you quite droll)

            The Southern Strategy existed and worked, and for the very notion that it didn’t, goes to show that YOU KNOW NOTHING. You sound as arcane as Ann Coulter, First you can comment on Black Culture cause you’ve studied and your sister or cousin likes BBC and thats opened your eyes. Now you want to deny the SS didn’t work. What next, The Holocaust too.

            And hypothetically speaking, If you possibly owned anything that I might remotely would want, I’d doubt it would be authentic… Your knowledge surely isnt.

            Ha, even IF the “Southern Strategy” worked and IF you actually believe EVERYONE in the South was a stereotypical racist(which is absolutely ludicrous) then what happened to the people who were conservatives before? Did we disappear? Are we all racists now because people in the South vote Republican because of economics? Why did Nixon and Reagan win in landslides in states other than in the South? You keep thinking your race-baiting nonsense and I will live in reality where people are not cookie-cutter stereotypes because of their skin color or where they live.

        But please,tell me what a racist I am for expecting people to step up to the plate and do something for themselves.Tell me how big a bigot I am because I think the word equality means equal FOR ALL,not just the ones who you want to vote for you.Please tell me how big a racist I am,and how ignorant of that fact I am while I hang out with black conservatives who somehow managed to not blame me,but make it all by themselves.

        When you wake up from your delusional state,I will still believe in hand-ups,not hand-outs.I will still believe every man makes his own life,and blaming others gets you nowhere.Feel free to place all the ills of an entire race on me though,because I am sure we all know that us “bitter-clingers” are the problem.

Two individual on twitter no less, give their opinions no less, guarantee under your United Stated constitution. All of you have to step back a bit a look at what all of this means. So Rush says his stuff on the radio. These two react to the fact that their are blacks that listen to Rush on radio. They give their opinion as such. And so in Twichy’s over hyped “If it isn’t right leaning it must be wrong”, which by the way, is totally cool.

      The First Amendment only says that the government can’t go after someone for speaking their mind. What it doesn’t do is protect you from people who have other opinions.

            As far as removing racist comments… Ive seen several people here refer to The President and his wife as “Ni***r” and the post weren’t removed.

            Why… Cause this is a haven for that mentality. Hate him all you want, but respect the office and the title he was VOTED in for.

        • NRPax

          The only times I have ever seen a moderator block and remove postings is when they are outright offensive, racist or contain threats. Facts. Look at the number of trolls we have here that have had their comments removed and yet they are still allowed posting privileges.

          And I have bad news for you: Everyone is biased in one way or another. No one can claim complete neutrality.

      • $44640340

        That is not true.
        Michelle Malkin is known for being biased… There are known racist stories she won’t dare mention. I believe they would share to much light on the vehement racism on the Right.

        And the moderator here is known to block you & remove your postings if he doesnt agree with them

        Facts.

      You do realize Twitchy mostly reports on what is going on with TWITTER, right? Twitchy, Tweet, Twitter? Get it? And they have every right to comment on these two idiots who cannot even fathom any black thinking outside the groupthink box. Toure/ Individuality? Are you serious?
      Have you been here on Twitchy often? If not, you might have missed all the times they have called out ” their own”. Stick around, kid you might be surprised.

    • operanerd1986

      The issue here is that Toure and John Legend apparently think that black people cannot have diverse political beliefs but must all be Democrats.

    • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

      Fascinating. Completely incoherent.

  • Silenttype78

    Clearly, Toure and John Legend are the ones struggling with cognitive dissonance regarding black Limbaugh fans.

  • TocksNedlog

    Either you’re ‘with’ the meme or you’re ‘against’ the meme; eh, Touré? Gee, who would ever have guessed that you view the issues of the day in terms of black & white?

    • peteee363

      all race hustlers do!

  • Garth Haycock

    How does Toure deal with the cognitive dissonance that he wasn’t aborted when he was in his mother’s womb?

  • poljunkie♪

    And who’s racist?

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Just kills these “talented tenth” types that not all in the black community will get down on bended knee before them.

  • FranklinWasRight

    Toure loves diversity in everything but thought.

  • michael s

    I find Limbaugh a waste of time. However I won’t condemn other blacks if they enjoy El rushbo.

  • Love of Country

    Yeah, those damn black Republicans ….. always being patriotic and never lookin’ for handouts ….. F those race traitors!

    Another one trying to get in on the Rush bandwagon hoping for a mention on his show. Little does toupee realize that every time Rush speaks in a metrosexual voice, he is channeling toupee.

  • Moonbeam

    I’m sorry, but I can’t believe there are Black supporters of Limbaugh. Please show proof.

    • Dr_Tesla

      you don’t think there is one black person who supports smaller government, tax cuts, cutting spending, etc?

      • aztectrumpet

        supporting those things does not equate to supporting limbaugh

        • Moonbeam

          Thank you, yes. Sorry, I don’t buy it that Blacks support Limbaugh (o, and I’m White). Not happening. Especially if you’ve checked to see what he’s said about Blacks.

          • NRPax

            A lot of people throw out the “Rush hates blacks” remarks but never once have I seen anyone provide an actual remark. I guess it’s just easier to assume all black people think alike and that all white people are racist.

          • Moonbeam

            I suggest you check Google – a plethora available.

          • NRPax

            Aw, how cute! Instead of doing the hard work about providing any evidence of racism, you want other people to do it for you. Not surprising.

            Here, I’m feeling benevolent. This is a link to the archives of his show. You can get full transcripts. Find the date and post the (non-existent) racist quotes and we’ll start from there.

      Your another person(probably Blk) who just can’t handle the fact that some Blk’s actually think first and don’t jump on the Obama bandwagon just because of skin color.I’m sure you think their “uncle toms” or “traitors”

  • Dr_Tesla

    S.E.Cupp tells us voters run away from us b/c of Rush but same voters are cool with Toure it seems.

  • wyatt81

    Toure is a traitor to MLK and everything he stood for-as are all the carpetbagging race hustlers. He’s a self satisfied lemming who wears his prejudice proudly. And the frightened fools who go along with him, like Legend, are no better.

  • Conservaguy

    Why pay attention to pea brains like Toure and Legend? They are not that intelligent to start with.

  • Brian

    It’s actually not that complicated. Rush Limbaugh is a racist…has said many racially charged things. And anyone who listens to him is either racially biased themselves..or don’t realize they’re racist.

    It has nothing to do with “Being conservative” or liberal, and has everything to do with Rush’s track record. How any non-racist could support Rush Limbaugh is beyond me

    • TexSizzle

      Your race card has been rejected because it is over the limit. Please provide an alternative form of payment.

      • NRPax

        But it’s all they have. Facts are too hard for them to use.

      • Brian

        Another great comeback. When accused of racism, mention the “race card”. The stop playing the race card card has been used since the 50s and 60s. Apparently there was a lot of whining back then too

    • nc

      And you have actually, personally listened to him for how many minutes?

      • Brian

        I don’t listen to racists. I have listened at times to the ridiculous amount of misinformation spewed by him, but his track record is clear. If you want to ignore that, go ahead. The majority of sane people who are in touch with civil rights will not give him the time of day

        • nc

          Surprise, surprise! So tell me how you can quote those racist things he supposedly said if you didn’t hear them yourself? Did it never occur to you that he never said such things? Do you really imagine the many millions of his devoted longtime listeners (of which I am one) to be such ugly hearted people? You sound like someone who judges people based on false, pre-conceived notions. You know, prejudiced.

          You should actually try listening to Rush for a few weeks, and really see what he’s about. You may not agree with him, but you would find him to be not what you think he is from hearsay or snippets.

    • http://www.facebook.com/kim.andrews.980 Kim Andrews

      List the racist comments from Rush. Audio, video, or transcript, in context with no editing. Criticizing a black person doesn’t make him racist. Rush disagrees with liberals no matter what their race.

      • Brian

        Right. Comparing the NFL players, with no criminal record is just a coincidence. No racial connotations there

        Neither is saying in Obama’s America white kids get beat up by black kids. No race baiting there

        Telling a black caller to pick the bone out of her nose? Nope…he didn’t say the N-word, so not racist right?

        In the right wing world Rush Limbaugh isn’t racist…because the Right wing are completely out of touch with civil rights of the 21st century anyway. Which is why your party lacks with women, jews, blacks, latinos, etc. etc. etc.

        • http://www.facebook.com/kim.andrews.980 Kim Andrews

          I didn’t understand your first point. Comparing NFL players? Can you elaborate?

          The bone in the nose quote was from the 70s i believe before his current radio show but nevertheless I dont see that as racist. Especially since one of the funniest bits ever is from Eddie Murphy Raw back in 1987.

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TwuY3HhwS4

          Im right wing…im NOT out of touch…im black woman with a latino grandfather and im a staunch conservative.

          I have no blind loyalty to Limbaugh. If he says something dumb i will call him on it. Its insulting to imply that because im black i HAVE to be liberal or im out of touch.

      And Stacy Dash was a Bastion of knowledge, a magnificent Rhodes scholar. Huh?

      • Raye09

        In all honesty this isn’t completely about knowledge, this is about Ms. Dash’s right to support what politician she wants without backlash and disgusting insults from the media, which is supposed to be impartial. There are plenty of actors I disagree with, but because their work is interesting and/or entertaining I continue to watch their movies, read their books and listen to their music. Toure and John Ledgend fail to make my list, because well their work sucks. I don’t agree with everything Stephen King or Sean Penn say or think, but because I like their work I still will occasionally watch movies or read books involving them.

        This is about the media and it’s failure to be impartial. What worries me in this country the media has lost it’s ability to disagree with someone in a civil manner. I am a libertarian, I have accquaintances that are republican, democrat and even die hard Obama stans(short for stalker fans), we still manage to get along. I am agnostic and I can still carry on a conversation with a Christian without resorting to insults. The media has proven time and again, to be incapable of doing this. When the media is protecting some while throwing others under the bus instead if just reporting then there is a problem.

        For example, why is there massive backlash when Rush Limbaugh calls Sandra Fluke(a grown woman) a slut, but not a peep when Bill Maher calls Sarah Palin’s teenage daughter a whore?

    Typical.

  • RedSoloCup

    These two idiots are proof why people listen to Rush.

  • Raye09

    John Ledgend and Turde fail to see that they fall into the spectrum of negative black images and stereotypes. The angry “talented tenth” type that fails to see that everyday normal(read beneath them) black people actually have brains and may not agree with them just based on skin color. They will happily bash someone like Allen West while failing to realize the work they do does nothing to benefit society. It doesn’t bother me though, because at the end of the day the plantation owners known as biased media and the record industry own them. They are just doing what their masters have told them. This is what happens when your career is built on racial politics.

    It’s just dawned on me that black authors like Turde` rarely have blockbuster books or movies like Twilight or Harry Potter, I think that is not because of racism, but because they have been brainwashed by liberals to write poverty porn, and other depressing BS that no one wants to read. You hear that? Your stories fail because they suck, not because you are black.

    The impression i get is that the left think black people are not free thinking intelligent individuals, rather patronizing dont you think.
