An Open Letter to Rush Limbaugh on Slavery From the FSA (Former Slaves of America)

Thanking Rush for His Courage in Standing Up for Caucasians

Offensive Post Alert!!

Editor’s Note:  Rush Limbaugh recently opined on slavery and the role of Caucasians in it.  No, its not what most people think when they consider slavery and race.

Limbaugh said that the “rest of the world” gets a pass when the “civil rights coalition gets ginned up.”

“Compared to the kind of slavery that still exists in the rest of the world and has existed, by no means was it anywhere near the worst. The Chinese, the Arabs, black Africans, in fact, we forget about it. Even American Indians were constantly warring against tribes, other tribes for slaves. You know how many wars were fought for slaves, to claim them?

My gosh, folks, the ancient Israelites were all slaves. The Exodus, the war, everything. There have been so many wars fought over this. Ancient Rome went to war to win more slaves. We’re pikers compared to the rest of humanity throughout human history.”

The conservative host argued that since slavery was a main catalyst for the Civil War, Caucasian Americans actually transcended other races by fighting a war to end slavery.

“Despite all that, no other race has ever fought a war for the purpose of ending slavery, which we did.  Nearly 600,000 people killed in the Civil War. It’s preposterous that Caucasians are blamed for slavery when they’ve done more to end it than any other race, and within the bounds of the Constitution to boot. And yet white guilt is still one of the dominating factors in American politics.  It’s exploited, it’s played upon, it is promoted, used, and it’s unnecessary.”

While most people might be highly offended at this, it turns out the largest organization of former slaves, the FSA is quite supportive of Rush and penned this letter to him.

Dear Rush:

As the largest group of actual former slaves (all of our members must have been in bondage for at least five years) we wanted to applaud your stand on supporting Caucasians and their role in ending slavery.  Far too many people blame the Caucasian race for establishing a slave culture in America that lasted almost 250 years.  They overlook the good things about slavery and instead focus on the fact that Caucasians transported slaves from Africa in boats that killed a great many of them, sold them at auction, separated families and forced men, women and children to live and work in abject conditions for all of their lives.

But thanks to Caucasians millions of Africans and their descendants got to participate in the revered and historic institution of slavery which as you point out goes back thousands of years, and includes such people as the Israelites (until Moses ill advisedly intervened).  Without the intervention of slavery our members would have had to live under horrible conditions in Africa all of their lives, instead of the life on the beautiful plantations. Plantation or jungle, not a difficult decision of where to reside is it?

A large number of our fellow former slaves and descendants of former slaves should not only be grateful that you Caucasians fought a war to end the slavery that you started, but they should also recognize that after that Civil War you kept the former slaves and their descendants from integrated education and from voting.  By forcing us to live among our own kind and have officially segregated facilities you made it possible for all of us former slaves and our offspring to realize what being black in America really meant.  

The fact that after World War II it was a Caucasian President, Harry S Truman who ended segregation in the armed forces is not taught in public schools, where instead the focus is on minor things like lynching.  In fact, one of the great injustices of history is blaming Caucasians for all of the lynching that took place after the Civil War up until the 1950’s. 

Since no person was ever even accused of lynching, it is impossible to say that these were Caucasians, yet they are the ones who are blamed.  It is entirely possible that all of the lynching was done by done by Eskimos or Australian Aborigines.  We just don’t know, but that doesn’t stop people other than yourself from putting the blame squarely on Caucasian even though history does not record a single conviction of a Causcasian for lynching.   We hope this will be a theme sometime soon on your broadcast.

There is little our organization can do for you, as most of our funding is used to provide retirement benefits for ex-slaves. The plantation owners did have a very generous 401k  plan with matching contributions for older slaves, at least the ones that survived past 70 (another fact that is not reported by the liberal anti-Caucasian press but one we hope you and others of your ilk will publicize) but they invested the funds in Confederate war bonds.  But we do have some money set aside for special purposes.  So we would like to sponsor you and pay for a lifetime membership in the Klu Klux Klan.  No need to thank us, we just think a person like yourself should be among his peers.

  1. I used to be overwhelmed with White Guilt. What a soul-crushing burden to be white in America! But now, thanks to Mr. Limbaugh, I can live free and easy. By reminding me that white people fought a war to "end slavery," he has lifted a terrible burden from my shoulders. I do not have to care that black people in America were subjected to decades of outrageous discrimination after the Civil War, and continue to suffer from far higher rates of poverty, incarceration, and health problems than my fellow blameless Caucasians. All that must be the fault of "those people," who have to accept responsibility for their actions. Really, they should suffer from Black Guilt for having made me feel so guilty!

  2. Great, and here I was worried about a backlash from this post.

  3. It should be Limbaugh who is concerned. Really, how can anyone say such things and remain on the air?
