Rush Limbaugh is known for often using coded racist language, then accusing people of race-baiting if they complain. But this time, in commenting on the press conference held by President Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao, he’s just gone for some straight-out racist caricature.
As Media Matters has picked up, Limbaugh complained on his radio show today that there was not a constant voiceover translation on the broadcast of Hu’s speech. In imitation, he then proceeded to do a mocking impression of Hu’s language, as might have been featured in a movie or radio show from the first half of the last century.
Give it a listen.
