Leland Yee Fans Support Boycott of Rush Limbaugh

Yummy pizza, yucky politics
Just yesterday State Sen. Leland Yee received racists death threats from someone who presumably supports Rush Limbaugh and probably believes Sarah Palin is a liberal. In the last 24 hours since the death threats were faxed to Yee's offices in Sacramento and San Francisco, more than 1,000 people from across the country have signed a petition to boycott Limbaugh and his conservative talk show.

Yee launched an online petition, condemning Limbaugh for his "offensive" comments he made during his radio program where he mocked Chinese President Hu Jintao, using a fake Chinese dialect. The petition demands for Limbaugh to apologize and asks his sponsors to yank their advertisements.

And so you don't have to do the research yourself, Yee's Web site links to the companies that are currently sponsoring Limbaugh, including Pro Flowers, Onstar, Sleep Train and Domino's Pizza.

"We should never allow such racist vitriol to go unchallenged," Yee said. "These threats will not deter me and others from the work we are doing to embrace our diversity and help move our country forward."

The racist death threats had a graphic of an American-flag-adorned pickup truck dragging a noose and said the following:

"FIGHTING The Marxist Nigger Thug Hussein Obama & Fish Head Leeland Yee
To: JoBama Rectum Sniffing Moron LEELAND LEE Achtung! Fish Head Leeland Lee.  Rush Limbaugh will kick your Chink ass and expose you for the fool you are. Without exceptions, Marxists are enemies of the United States Constitution!  Death to all Marxists!  Foreign and Domestic!"

The faxes were turned over to authorities, according to Yee's staff. 

Last week, Yee demanded an apology from Limbaugh after he went on the air and made fun of President Jintao's speech, saying it wasn't translated. "He was speaking and they weren't translating, normally they have someone translating every couple of words," Limbaugh said. 

Limbaugh then broke into an imitation of the president's speech, using a fake dialect and making up what he thought sounded like Chinese language.

Five blind Chinese men who had never heard of Rush Limbaugh were assembled in a room. Each was asked to examine one part of Rush by touch and explain what they thought they were feeling.

The first man felt the top of Rush’s head. He pondered for a moment, then said, “So hard and round, but with such sparse fibrous hairs. Is it an extremely large nut?”

The second man ran his fingers over Rush’s nose and mouth. He frowned a bit, and then responded, “The nose is so bulbous and the teeth so sharp, just like a particular species of big baboon!”

The third man touched Rush’s jowls. “So flaccid but coarse!” he exclaimed. “Is it an empty hot air balloon?”

The fourth man examined Rush’s hindquarters. “Such enormous haunches!” was his observation. “Is it a water buffalo?”

The fifth man was asked to feel Rush’s paunch. “Gentlemen! Please back up now!” he ordered abruptly. “This elephant is about to give birth and I think we should give her some room!”

Liberals on the east and west coast, and upper midwest, especially the creators and purveyors of pop culture (Hollywood) have been ridiculing the way white Southerners talk for literally generations, and you don't hear white Southerners getting so thin-skinned and bellyaching about it, or calling for boycotts. Liberals are such hypocrites. They are, and do, everything they condemn others for.

Where can I sign up for online boycott of Russ Limbaugh? This guy is a Trash, should be taken off the Air....

Phil from Domino's here. We are dumb-founded that our name is being connected to the call for a boycott by Sen. Yee. Domino's Pizza has never advertised on the Rush Limbaugh Show. We're investigating the possibility that a Domino's ad may have run in a local market somewhere by accident, but we are not an advertiser on this show.

Yee will have about as much success with this boycott as he did last year when he was dumpster diving, looking for dirt on Sarah Palin, and even less success than he is having now at his job.

This boycott isn't about offending the chicoms, but rather just another excuse for the thin skinned leftists to go after Rush and any other conservative out there. Every single time a conservative says something that doesn't line of with the left's way of thinking, all the crazies come out in force, with their phoney indignance, complaining about hate and racism, than attack with real racism and hate, along with their ban this and ban that.

You're wasting your time but best of luck on that boycott.

I am systematically sending this message to each company that support Rush with advertizing dollars, and I urge you to do the same (...use your own message tho, to show that you mean it!)

"I am very disappointed that you support the racist Rush Limbaugh with your advertising dollars. His attack on our Chinese-American community is an attack on us all. It taints your fine product to be associated with this sort of thing and I will not be buying your goods until you remove the taint"

I am surprised Rush is still on the air. It is people like this that influence those that cant not think for themselves to attempt to assassinate our public servants. I am not Chinese, but I find his remarks childish and insulting. Who next? Polish? Irish? English?

RUSH LIMBAUGH IS NOTHING THAN A BIGOTED, RACIST, ANGER PROVOKING, FAT, ANGER EXCITING TALK SHOW HOST. UNFORTUNATELY, MANY UNDER AND UNEDUCATED FOOLS FALL PRAY TO HIS HATRED. WITH PEOPLE (SUB-HUMANS) LIKE LIMBAUGH, BECK, HANNETY, AND O'REILY LEADING THIS HATRED IT IS NO WONDER OUR COUNTRIES MORALS AND HISTORIC VALUES ARE RAPIDLY DETERIORATING. FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS ONE THING, BUT THESE RACIST, BIGOTED BASTARDS HAVE GONE WAY TO FAR. LIMBAUGH SHOULD BE FROM ANY PUBLIC VENUE.

I have to chuckle when I think about what the average Chinese person would think should they ever have the chance to get a good look at Rush Limbaugh. From his elephantine body to his slug-like face, his porcine posterior and bulldog jowls, those beady little bear-like eyes, the chubby chipmunk cheeks, his wispy-haired orangutan pate, that hippopotamus paunch – the poor person in question would probably be speechless with disbelief. Good old Rush – the man is a veritable zoo unto himself! I suppose he could do his best imitation of the Chinese language for the benefit of this dumbfounded individual, but I am afraid he would only be adding an ass-like bray to his menagerie.

The only thing Rush is good at is making money. He knows how easily it is to manipulate a certain segment in America. Without his followers that can't think for themselves Rush would be a nobody. If you have time to listen to him for three hours thinking you are going to learn something good. Your time would be better spent in a public library where you will really learn what the constitution says. The best part of it you can read all the America history books and it is free. I understand libraries are this places that liberals built. But the books in those liberals buildings will open your mind to new knowledge and understanding of this country that you will never get from listen to Rush. Instead of sending money to Rush spend that money on a set of encyclopedias you will get a better band for your bucks.

I have been in this country for 40 years just like you. Rush Limbaugh is well known not friendly to minorities. If a person want to harrase you, he does not have to use any words, such as a middle finger will do.

I can not believe you have no idea what Rush Limbaugh is doing. Where have you been in U.S. all these years?

Dear Liberals:

Good Lordy. Adults ignore Limbaugh. Children get their panties in a wad. I plead and beg with someone on the left to grow up and not be offended by Limbaugh. All you have to do is ignore him! Heck, I'm a conservative and I ignore the clown. That said, this obsession you have with labeling anyone who disagrees with you as a hater is very dangerous to our liberty. Take a look at Egypt today. Is that what you want? If not, man up, starting with the Congressman.

Rogue - Limbaugh wasn't disagreeing, he was mocking and putting down the President of China, the Chinese language, and Chinese culture. Usually, I ignore him as so much noise, but every so often, he goes way too far and spews hateful, spiteful, nastiness. Whether it's toward the families of the victims of 9-11 or President Obama or in this case, China, he is a mean moron who has a lot of influence because he is part of the national media scene.

There are media outlets who allow and support "Hate Rhetoric" to be spewed through their mediems by so called "commentators' many of whom are talking only to enhance their own political agenda. Politics is a dirty business, but it pays well, over and under the table. Mr. Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck on a daily uses language, I beleive, to degrade anyone that does not fit their "supreme idea" of democracy and to incite and encourage those who do support them to do things that they themselves do not have the fortitude to do.

I am a Black man who saw the effects of the "Economic Boycotts" in the south during the 50's and 60's that brought about change in the lives of many Americans. Businesses that sponsor programs that degrade certain segments of a population should not be allowed to prosper and should not be patronized by those offended.

Citizens who feel they have been discriminated , degraded or slandered by bigoted remarks an accusations should pay closer attention to the medium source and make every effort to withdraw any participation from the medium and any sponsors that support it.

Posting a comment that a Racist comment shouldn't matter as much as their human rights issue doesn't make any sense!

Rush Limbaugh owes every Chinese person an apology for making such a sick parody of Chinese speech. I don't care what he thinks of the Chinese government; he has set a bad example for all Americans.

Rush Limbaugh is the one pushing divisiveness whether he intends it or doesn't.

It wouldn't be a sincere apology if RL does say he's sorry. Considering how many non-Chinese have learned to speak Chinese beautifully - including kids, Limbaugh's rediculous blabbering only makes himself look and sound stupid and foolish.

As a 5th generation American Born Chinese female, yes I am offended by the racist mocking sounds of Rush Limbaugh. I don't think its funny when some smart ass white kid imitates their version of the language as a way of insulting you. Funny you say... not hardly. Having a living history of family born and raised in California, as a people we too have suffered indignities up and down this state due to racism. In this generation and those that precedes us, we are an educated progressive bunch, and we don't have to accept this type of commentary lightly. As for those of you whether you're Chinese or not who think Rush Limbaugh's comments as funny... just know that there are many more of us who don't.

Neil

I don't remember any guarantees that if you are an American you won't be offended. Are all Chinese born with thin skins or only those whose thinking leans to the left?

What a crock. People around the world have fun with foreign languages. Even in CHINA, American English is mocked. It's fun.

Rush is awesome. If you crybabies don't like him then don't listen to him. Turn on a good Liberal talk-show --- wait a second --- there aren't any good Liberal talk shows.

It is a little disturbing to note how you base your hate through political party lines. I think most people here have no problems with conservatives, but rather Limbaugh himself, as he continues to spew out hurtful and usually unintelligent things designed to get others to hate with him. If you indeed faithfully listen to Limbaugh, then you know he aligned Jared Loughner with Democrats- once again, a callous way to regenerate hate within society (based on political parties). So please step back and take a good look at this poor excuse of a man you look up to.

lelandyee.com go here if you are wanting to boycott its easy to do takes less then 5 mins.the way he set it up this will have a effect on rush.I would like to say something as well.i was born on july 4 in south dakota on an air force base not far from mt.rushmore.i have a american passport , i have id from arizona and texas.i was raised in texas.so mr wong you can take it from me that this was to make fun of you.not because you did anything, only because you look different.its that simple.it may be hard to explain to some that some humans have had a hard time understanding that humans come in all colors and we can get along.i am a white man i have blue eyes.i have hitch hiked from california to new york.i have ridden frieght trains into places some diehard amricans never even knew exist.this is easy for me to tell you.mr yee is pleding with smart amricans to help him live, basicly. and hes asking this in a way you cant deny.so if you dont want the rush supporting goverment to come "rushing" you away to some camp, like they did to the japanies in ww2.for goodness sake pay attention to a real tax paying amrican!i bet all of the supports of rush work for someone else and have little to no ambition of their own.so untell you are able to put the damn dominos pizza down and boycott.dont even think of impressing your low ethics and morals on my nation!!!criminals prefer stupid victims.
