TX-10: Will Michael McCaul & Rick Perry Denounce Rush Limbaugh's Call for Re-Segregating Buses?

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Does Texas Congressman Michael McCaul support the segregation of buses? Because on of his biggest friends — the infamous Rush Limbaugh — called for just that today during his radio program.

From Media Matters:

Rush: “[W]e need segregated buses […] This is Obama's America”

Then Rush took a caller who said the local police investigating the bus assault said today the attack was not racially motivated. Rush responded to these developments put out by the local law enforcement:

LIMBAUGH: I think the guy's wrong. I think not only it was racism, it was justifiable racism. I mean, that's the lesson we're being taught here today. Kid shouldn't have been on the bus anyway. We need segregated buses — it was invading space and stuff. This is Obama's America.

Call Congressman Michael McCaul, and ask him to denounce Limbaugh for calling for segegating buses!

Last May, Governor Perry honored Rush Limbaugh as an “honorary Texan” — and the following video (which we originally posted on BOR) was shot:

Call Congressman McCaul today! Demand that he denounce Rush Limbaugh for asking us to return to the days of segregation! Tell him to end his communications with Rush immediately — that he must denounce him and never appear with him again.

  1. To be fair,
    Limbaugh clearly wasn't calling for segregated buses.  He was trying to accuse Obama of wanting segregated buses.
