Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:
5. Rush Limbaugh
Last week, Megyn Kelly “won” first place on the list for her odd insistence that Santa Claus — who, just to reiterate, is not a real person — is white.
This week, Rush Limbaugh takes the number five spot for sharing his own opinion on the subject. As you may have imagined, it’s basically just a less informed version of Kelly’s point.
“In every portrayal since the beginning of Santa Claus, Santa Claus is white,” Limbaugh — who apparently doesn’t know how to do a Google image search — insisted.
“This is worse than political correctness,” he continued. “This is Stalinism.”
Of course, Limbaugh’s warning that black Santas are actually leading us towards a communist dictatorship loses some of its shock value when one considers that Limbaugh thinks pretty much everything is Stalinist.
But if it makes Rush feel better, at least everyone seems to agree that Stalin was a white guy.
