Conservative radio icon and honorary Hutt Rush Limbaugh really, really hates it when people call him “racist.” Just ask him. He hates it so much that, two weeks ago, he went off on a rant against the very idea of a black actor portraying fictional character James Bond, not because Rush Limbaugh is racist, but because the fictional character James Bond just is white, like Santa Claus and Jesus. Two weeks ago, Limbaugh responded to a hacked Sony email in which Sony Pictures Chair Amy Pascal bluntly says “Idris should be the next Bond,” referring to famous British actor Idris Elba, and told his audience that there’s no way Elba, “who is, I can’t say African-American, ’cause he’s British.  African English.  African Brit.  He’s black,” could possibly portray the fictional superspy.

“James Bond was invented, created by Ian Fleming, a former spy, MI6, and James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming,” Limbaugh explained, adding “He was white and Scottish, period. That is who James Bond is. But now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton rather than a white from Scotland. But that’s not who James Bond is, and I know it’s racist to probably even point this out.”

While Limbaugh has a hard time knowing what to call a black person in this crazy, mixed-up PC world, he obviously has bothered to Google James Bond. Of course, he knows that the character James Bond has been changed countless times, was first portrayed onscreen as an American by actor Barry Nelson, wasn’t assigned Scottish ancestry by author Ian Fleming until several years into Sean Connery’s portrayal, and has been played by Australian, Irish, and English actors since then.

Limbaugh then equated having a black actor portray James Bond with…READ MORE [su_csky_ad]

    Isn’t Limbaugh a fictional character? A “person” like him couldn’t possibly exist in real life, could he?

      If you had written a fictional story 40 years ago about people like Rush and the rest of the R.W. media money hate machine, no body would have bought it.

      They would have reasoned that the story was too far fetched; that there would never be enough gullible Americans to support such a huge industry.

    Scots can be black. Anyone who had a rudimentary understanding of the concept of immigration would know that ( Shit….I just shot myself in the ass….Limbaugh doesn’t have a rudimentary understanding of anything.

    Multiple upvotes for the headline.

  6. Foundryman January 6th, 2015 at 7:11 pm

    Limbaugh outraged over something that hasn’t even happened yet….Isn’t there a psychological term for that? Like maybe paranoid schizophrenia?..Not that he has just one but, whats the phobic name for the fear of the future? Fear of black spys? Fear of rewriting movie scripts?
    The stupid will always run wild in this one….

      Don’t know about a white Shaft…

      But I do know that Rush and the rest of the RW media money hate machine give the shaft to America every day…

      ps…just got of the phone with Perry and he’s glad you’re back, Doc. Walter White just wasn’t evil enough. 🙂

      There was already a “white shaft’..
      Sylvester Stallon as Cobra..(didn’t go over so well)

      • arc99 January 7th, 2015 at 3:37 pm

        I liked Cobra.

        But I am a sucker for movies with marginal acting and lots of car crashes and explosions.

        It is probably a reaction from my college days. I used to date this girl who loves Ingmar Bergman movies. She eventually dumped me and broke my heart.

        So now, for me it is forget all that artsy character and plot development stuff. Explosions, crashes, and gratuitous nudity are all I need for a good time at the cinema

    Yeah well, Rush isn’t the dictator and he doesn’t get to make demands or set conditions. Where is the endorsement of the free market system he’s so fond of touting – shouldn’t the market determine whether or not Idris succeeds as Bond?

  10. Ray M. January 6th, 2015 at 9:23 pm

    Ian Fleming based his Bond character on a number of individuals he came across during his time in the Naval Intelligence Division during World War II. I suppose it’s possible one of those individuals was black.

    Were there many blacks in the Brittish Naval Intelligence Division during World War II?

    Personally I could care less if Bond is played by a white or black actor ….. as long as he’s good.

    “You Can Have Black James Bond If Rush Limbaugh Can Get A White Shaft”

    I KNOW it’s early 2015. But I think we have the funniest LiberalLand headline of the year. Or at least a serious contender.

      Entendre is best when doubled!

  13. rg9rts January 7th, 2015 at 7:51 am

  14. William January 7th, 2015 at 8:52 am

    Definitely headline of the year
