…it does.Remember my post the other day about Rush Limbaugh’s attempts to speak “Chinese”? Here’s the follow-up:

“California Lawmaker Receives Racist Death Threat Warning ‘Rush Limbaugh Will Kick Your Ch-nk Ass’”

Last week, California State Sen. Leland Yee (D) called on right-wing hate radio host Rush Limbaugh to apologize for mocking Chinese President Hu Jintao and the Chinese language by speaking gibberish “ching chong chang” Chinese on his radio program. Yee, who is Chinese-American and chairs the state Senate Select Committee on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs, said Limbaugh owes the Chinese-American community an apology for his “pointless and ugly offense.” Naturally, Limbaugh did not apologize, and instead railed against Yee the following day on his radio, calling him out repeatedly by name.

Yee’s call for civility did not sit well with one Limbaugh fan, who responded by sending several racist death threats to Yee’s office this week.

What are the odds that Limbaugh won’t refudiate repudiate his fan’s actions? Pretty good, I think.

    …and this should come as no surprise to anyone. He panders to this type of individual. The sad thing is that this is all done for Limbaugh’s financial gain and nothing more. The more attention he gets the better the ratings consequently the more it costs to advertise on his show and so on…the best thing to do is NOT give media coverage to this moron.

    @Ken: I know, I know. We should just ignore them. But it’s so far. They are SO FREAKIN’ LOUD. And I feel compelled to address their stupidity and hatred, especially since so many people seem to take it seriously. I will try to sit on my hands the next time Limbaugh (or Beck or Palin or Bachmann or…) says something stupid. :)
