Limbaugh: ‘Elizabeth Warren, Heap Big Squaw Indian Giver’

ICTMN Staff
12/17/12

 

On December 13, the always controversial conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh made sure he was clear about his comments in regards to Massachusetts Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren, when he repeated calling her an “Indian Giver,” as reported by The Raw Story.

Limbaugh who was talking about a group of Democratic senators that recently wrote a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) hoping to delay a medical device tax that was part of President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act said, “Elizabeth Warren, for example, she gave her whole-hearted approval to Obamacare. Now, she is one of the senators that wants to take that back.

“She’s an Indian giver,” he added. But he didn’t brush by the comment, he continued to say, “Yes! I intended to say that! Elizabeth Warren, Heap Big Squaw Indian Giver!”

Warren who is no stranger to controversy, as the election season heated up this year, her opponent then Republican Senator Scott Brown brought up Warren’s alleged Native heritage. Brown would continue to call out Warren on the topic, suggesting she used the heritage angle to get her position at Harvard. Warren who went on the defense, never opened up to Native media about the issue.

But just before ballots were to be cast, members of Brown’s campaign staff we caught on video mocking Warren’s heritage by shouting “war whoops” and doing the “Tomahawk Chop.”

If there is a 'line forming' for those who wish;even at 60, I would JUST LOVE to take anyone else on; for the 'joy' of slapping this fat "Washichu" around in the court yard. Just for the fun of seeing him squeal like a pig.

It never stops. The associating the term, "Indian giver", with Indian people giving you something & then taking it back. The term was actually given in regards to all the things the White's government promised we native peoples & then changed the terms of the treaties at a later treat remake & took things back & took MORE land. The true "Indian Giver" is the government of the US government & all the other Invaders who stole from us, lied to us & tried to destroy our whole cultures through assimilation & kidnapping our children putting them in places like the Carlile School, among other places, etc. Tell the truth Rush!

Being a drug addict like Rush Limbaugh, you never know what they will say, because we never know how high they are at any particular time. since being a drug addict affects the mind and soul.

Elizabeth Warren is still just a Senator elect. Her term in office does not begin until January. Rush is a bigoted name caller who is either very ignorant himself or he thinks the rest of us are. People should just start turning off the radio or changing stations when his program comes on. Other news medias need to start ignoring him and all of his sponsors should quit supporting his radio program. This is the only way that to stop the spread of Rush's bigoted ideas and potty mouth.

I dont know of her history as a politician. But no matter what the issue is or what the riff between the parties no ones ethnic background should be mocked. WRONG on all counts. Not only on Brown's staff members behalf but also on Rush Limbaughs behalf. Where has this guy been living for the past 6 decades? Under a rock? As a public personality there are things you just dont say or do on air or on tv. But I can respect his honesty in sharing his racist views, cause now at least he leaves no doubt in my mind he is a racist. I would rather have some one tell me they are a racist and dont like me or my people rather than feining respect in my face and then wants to stab me in the back as soon as I turn around. Rush Limbaugh you have been accused publicy as being predjudice and a racist in the past. And you have now been found GUILTY on all counts.

Sorry, but not surprised to hear Limbaugh continuing his crude, offensive tactics toward anyone with different views. Shake it off, don't let him distract us from what will be a long process of improving healthcare for millions.

A slow news day for the ICTMN ‘Inquiry’ Staff? Elizabeth Warren won the election. President Obama was “re-elected”. National TV media outlets and newspaper articles are increasingly more slanted/biased (all in full public view). “Marching Orders” were given down to MSNBC TV Talking Head pundits during their White House invitation. So why lend any ‘creditability’ to obviously child-dish name calling? Why even mention Limbaugh tirads or any other organization that begs to differ from ‘YOUR’ ICTMN Inquiry Principles? Is there really a need for racial agitation and race baiting coming the likes of white man who associates with a non-Dem Politic Party? Your focus should continue to be focused on Liberal-minded College Schools, Hollywood Media Personalities, Social Events as Halloween Pubs, etc. The mis-association and abuse of Indian images is apparent as being overly rampant and seemingly ‘accepted’ more so than the likes of white guy or white gal who doesn’t agree with ‘progressive’ interests. Otherwise, give us some REAL ISSUES as: what went on during the White House Invitation on Indian Affairs December 4-6, 2012? What is the White House going to do and carry out to Indian Affairs in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016?

Consider the source. He is offensive and not worth the space he takes up.

He's liable to say/do anything to get a rise out of others - A N Y T H I N G ! Its already confirmed he's a drug abuser/seller......didn't get any time out of that. Typical bully.....look the other way and ignore him, maybe he'll "go away" !

Limbaugh is a plague upon the fair skinned race. He is the mouthpiece for all that is ignorant and racist in the white world- so why is anyone suprised or even angry that he would spew his garbage once again? There will always be hatred in the world- some parts of it happens to have it's own radio show to share it with others.

Limbaugh isn't mocking Native Americans. He is mocking a woman who falsely claimed to be Native American to gain advantage in hiring and then lied about it. A woman who has literally done nothing for NAs. Making fun of a person who took the honor of people for her own personal gain with over the top nonsense like this is illustrating the absurdity of her position. A position she put herself in.

The term indian giver is not really a reflection on native americans, it is a term that was actually used to describe white people, the federal government in particular because every time they would give the indians something in treaty form, they would turn around and take it away, thus the term indian givers. As far as him calling her a squaw, how would he like it if he was called a cunt or vagina, because that is exactly what he is doing. Then again he is the type of person who would not think twice about debasing another human being because he has lost his humanity, so he makes bigoted, racist remarks to make himself sound big,important and tough. The only thing that I can feel for this poor, sorry excuse of a man is pity. He will never know true happiness or real love, because he does not know how accept or return it. I will say a prayer for him that he will change before it is too late.

Limbo is rushing to racism!! He is the backward slave owner son of a bitch. I tell you why? because he is scared that his time of bigot philosophy is eroding. Those, our Native brothers and sisters endure unbearable condition under the racism rule. Their spirit surpass with forgiveness and endurance of humanity.

We are so happy Rush Limbaugh is not Native American because he has clearly despised his man card. Native Americans are blessed to not have our brave legacy sullied by having to claim him as one of us.

Rush Lamebrain stoops to a less than childish level of commentary. He deserves a place among the most dedicated and disturbed of prejudicial personalities in America...and there many who welcome him to the exclusive club.

If Limbaugh had made a comment like this, “Jews still expect others to give them back land they lost 3000 years ago and they are still whining about the Holocaust that happened decades ago. They need to get over it and become civilized.” How do you think the media and public as a whole would react? But as long as he is bad mouthing the Indians who cares. Nobody it seems.

I can't stand either of them. Rush or Warren. It's pretty messed up that Elizabeth Warren has been pulling a Native card her entire life...
