Rush Limbaugh Threatened by Minorities Becoming Majority

Rush Limbaugh spoke about minorities becoming the majority, Limbaugh told his audience of millions.

"And the warning is: You are on the wrong side of history. And you are on the wrong side of demographics. You better do what the coming majority wants right now, or you're gonna suffer the consequences. There is an implied threat in this story. You're getting older. You're white and you're dying off. Pretty soon you're gonna find out what it's been like to not be you."

I know most Caucasians don't see minorities as a threat. I'm addressing Rush Limbaugh & the  group of Caucasians that think minority numbers increasing is a threat.

Is Rush suggesting that the body of Americas fundamental principles that birthed the Constitution is strategical designed for certain Caucasians to live off white privilege???

Rush is saying pretty soon Caucasians will find out what's it like not to be u.
What does that mean?
My grandfather fought in World War 2 & my father fought in Vietnam & I'm not seen as an American because I don't understand what's it like to be an American because I'm not Caucasian coming out of the womb.
 
Rush said, "you're white and you're dying off."
I don't see Caucasians dying off. In fact, I see beautiful Caucasian women in the gym going hard & graduating in large numbers, I see colleges producing a large number of future successful white men. Rush is acting like the Caucasian race will stop reproducing. lol. It's not enough Asian & Indian women in America for that to happen. I know most Caucasians don't see minorities as a threat & I don't see how a group of Caucasians could see a threat WHEN WE ARE ALL SUPPOSE TO BE AMERICANS!!!  OR ARE WE??? Am I seen as an American or am I seen as something else? Do some Caucasians expect white privilege? 

Rush said, "you've been the majority for all these decades, all these generations, but your time is coming when you're gonna be the minorities and there's gonna be people with majority power over you. So you better learn right. You better change your ways. You better get with the program so that everybody likes you."

Do black folks feel threatened by Caucasian numbers?  I personally never thought that hard about it because I thought we were all suppose to be Americans. If successful white folks with resources like Rush Limbaugh feel threatened by the increase in minority numbers than am I suppose to feel threatened by successful Caucasian men & women with resources that feel I am a threat??? What do u do when u feel threatened? U learn how to defend yourself. How do u defend yourself? With intelligence & strategically, so am I suppose to feel threatened about how successful wealthy Caucasian men & women will defend themselves against me since I'm a threat???

Will I see it coming since I don't think of myself as a threat?

Will it be done by manipulating the judicial system & incarcerating a larger number of minorities?

Will it be done by cutting Federal & State programs & than lay off or downsize a lot of jobs?

Will it be done by cutting black folks off from employment because of bad credit on top of maybe having a criminal record?

Will it be done in the Laboratory with some infectious diseases that kill a majority of black folks & Africans & a small minority of other races?

U see, people with wealth have a vast amount of resources & it's easy to find financial funding for lab research if the financial backers think it's a cure for cancer & don't fully understand what's being produced in the lab. The Defense Science & Technology Laboratory is 45% military charities & 10% other non-military charities, including research councils. The money travel around the same circle as other wealthy rich white men that think I am a threat like Rush Limbaugh. The dinner parties, private meetings, yacht parties, beach house parties, barbucues, poker parties, privet plans trips, friend of friend. I'm not saying this is happening, but u will be surprised what a group of wealthy successful Caucasians men & women can do when they feel threatened. America is a BIG place & there a lot of places to build a lab, especially underground & It's easy to target a group of people if they're isolated. It's a hundred different labs in your own city u don't even know is there.

Will I see it coming since I don't see myself as a threat to Caucasians or America?  

San Diego (CNN) -- You've probably read those articles about how, in the United States, minorities are becoming the majority. That's a polite way of describing what is really going on. Namely, that the U.S. population is becoming more Latino and less white. More than any other group, it is Latinos who are driving demographic changes. Last week, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that, of all the babies born in the United States in 2011, more than half were members of minority groups. Latinos, Asians, African-Americans and other minorities accounted for 50.4% of births last year, marking the first time in U.S. history this has happened. Immigration is a driving force. So is the fact that Latinos have higher birthrates because they tend to be younger and starting families. According to the report, Latinos have a median age of 27; with whites, it's 42.


When I read these kinds of stories, I wince. Some people assume that making lawmakers, media and corporations aware of population trends will persuade them to see the value in diversity and cause them to reach out to nonwhite populations. In my experience, it doesn't have that effect at all. People tend to do what they want to do the way they've always done it.

But what you can set your watch by is the backlash to these stories. It's rooted in fear, but also in human nature. No one likes being told they're being displaced or pushed aside, or that they're not going to be as relevant as time goes on.

So when David Bostis, a senior research associate at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, tells CNN.com as he did recently: "The Republicans' problem is that their voters are white, aging and dying off" and that "there will come a time when (Republicans) suffer catastrophic losses with the realization of the population changes," it is bound to set off shock waves. And it did.


Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh saw the CNN story as a threat, and he went ballistic.


"It is clear that this, and other similar stories like this, are meant to serve as a warning to Republicans and conservatives," Limbaugh told his audience of millions.


"And the warning is: You are on the wrong side of history. And you are on the wrong side of demographics. You better do what the coming majority wants right now, or you're gonna suffer the consequences. There is an implied threat in this story. You're getting older. You're white and you're dying off. Pretty soon you're gonna find out what it's been like to not be you."


"That's the implication of the story," Limbaugh insisted. "You've been the majority for all these decades, all these generations, but your time is coming when you're gonna be the minorities and there's gonna be people with majority power over you. So you better learn right. You better change your ways. You better get with the program so that everybody likes you."

As is often the case when Limbaugh charges into matters of race and ethnicity, he has it all wrong. These aren't threats. These are facts. And they're presented not to pressure people to do "what the coming majority wants right now" as much as to highlight the value of doing the right thing by making our institutions more inclusive.


Stories like this are supposed to enlighten us and give us a heads up about what's coming around the corner, so we can take advantage of the trend and not be overrun by it. Elected officials, media companies and the business communities can put off thinking about the future, but they can't escape it.


Meanwhile, what people like Limbaugh seem to be trying to escape is a reckoning for what happened in the past. As he sees it, all this talk about changing demographics is tied to a larger criticism of the United States as having at times fallen short of its own principles of liberty, fairness and equality.


"Part of it is payback because this evil white majority has arranged things so they get all the spoils," he said. "And then whatever they don't want is what gets handed down. Those days are about over, and the big change is coming."


What needs to change is this kind of thinking. It's total nonsense. In nearly 25 years of writing about politics, race and ethnicity, I've never heard any member of a minority group talk about how they're looking forward to "payback" once they're in the majority. Not one.


What I do hear quite a bit is that people of color believe in the greatness of this country, and they want to help write the next chapter in ways that benefit them and their families. They want a seat at the table, not because they feel entitled but because they feel they have something unique and valuable to offer. And they don't want to get even; they just want to get ahead.


What's wrong with that? Nothing.


In fact, it's in keeping with some of this country's greatest traditions. Have no fear. The face of America is changing. But it's heart and soul never will.

I have always admired and appreciated Tim Wise.

Of course they are afraid.  Because alot of times - what comes around goes around.

They should have just loved Jesus and treated others the way he did.
