Hypocrite Leland Lee Tries to Silence Limbaugh (Yawn)

This from AP:
Rush Limbaugh's imitation of the Chinese language during a recent speech made by Chinese President Hu Jintao has stirred a backlash among Asian-American lawmakers in California and nationally.
California state Sen. Leland Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, is leading a fight in demanding an apology from the radio talk show host for what he and others view as racist and derogatory remarks against the Chinese people...."The comments that he made - the mimicking of the Chinese language - harkens back to when I was a little boy growing up in San Francisco and those were hard days, rather insensitive days," Yee said in an interview Thursday. 
Cry me a river. I sometimes hearken back to the days when I was a little Polish-American boy growing up in the suburbs of Cleveland and listening to Polack jokes every day. BFD, you whiner. Grow up.

Limbaugh, in fact, was lampooning the Chinese Communist president's "discussion" on camera with President Obama which was only minimally translated on TV. So Limbaugh essentially mimicked what he got out of this dangling conversation, essentially a Chinese version of "Blah, blah, blah." So what? Since when do we need to stick up for Communist Chinese dictators anyway? Perhaps Lee, who like Hu seems intent on silencing dissidents, senses a kindred spirit.

Limbaugh later replied to this latest bit of nonsense from the overly-sensitive left--confirmed idiotarians who are still struggling to keep pushing on the phony "Republicans as hatemongers" meme they've been peddling since the massacre in Tucson. Said El Rushbo:
"Back in the old days, Sid Caesar, for those of you old enough to remember, was called a comic genius for impersonating foreign languages that he couldn't speak," Limbaugh said. "But today the left says that was racism; it was bigotry; it was insulting. And it wasn't. It was a service."
Again, for those too young to remember, Caesar (b. 1922) is a venerable Jewish TV comic who's 1950s variety show, named "Your Show of Shows," frequently lampooned German and Yiddish speakers via silly, faux German dialogue. It was regarded as wildly funny back then and nobody got touchy about it.

In any event, Lee also accused "pro-Limbaugh" listeners of sending him hate-mail faxes. Of course as is always the case with the left, there's never any evidence as to exactly who did send the faxes or if they were even authentic faxes at all. Nonetheless, the media has trumpeted Lee's allegations as the truth. As of this morning, it's absolutely impossible to find any fact-checking on this at all via Google and other search engines which do carry page after page of lefty articles hawking this meme, proving at the very least that these clowns really know how to use keywords.

Comments rather pungently:
Blame, blame, blame! When are people going to start taking responsibility for their own actions? The only one who made this idiot send this racist fax is the idiot himself.
It's been noted here and there that Lee is considering a run for San Francisco mayor, so this little allegation--trumped up and probably phony--not only fits in with the left's anti-conservative Tucson meme, but also gins up publicity for Lee's possible mayoral bid. Apparently, he pulled the same thing prior to a previous election cycle, ginning up an anti-Palin scandal and additional suspiciously convenient anti-Lee hate faxes.

Which is duly noted by Lucianne commentator Gumbino who draws a couple of wry conclusions:
Yee also received a similar fax last April after he demanded to know the pay Sarah Palin received for speaking at a public university.

Ah. So it isn't just right-wingers sending Yee these faxes.

Also we have now learned that it is "racist" to imitate an accent or a language.

So we should soon hear Leftists clamoring for Tina Fey to stop mocking Sarah Palin's accent.

And for liberal radio show host Lionel to stop making fun of Swedes. "Ohhhh ... Inga! Hu tu hu tu hu!"
