Ho Sit Down! Rush Limbaugh Tells 11-Year-Old Healthcare Reform Supporter “Your Mom Still Would Have Died”

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, Hip Hop Wired, Ho Sit Down

The media has rallied to support 11-year-old Marcelas Owens, after Rush Limbaugh and other right wingers levied a hostile verbal attack against the boy, who recently took to the nation’s capital to show his support for President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform bill. Owens’ mother died three years ago of pulmonary hypertension after losing her job and her health insurance. Pop the hood for video coverage. Continue

    Rush has no limit to his hatred.

  • Littleenglander

    Man, some of your politicians REALLY do not like the fact they have a Black president or BLACK people living in the USA for that matter.

    The only thing I can say is that God hears all and sees all.

  • spokenword

    This society is so racist and having a black president really shows how much so.

    You people really are quite humorous. Look at the reality of the statement that Rush said and ask yourself “Is it true?” You’re damn right it is, cold-hearted yes, but true nevertheless. Silly liberals🙂

    Please get a clue, this has nothing to do with being liberal or conservative. It’s about someone being insensitive to a child who lost his Mother.

  • Gimmeabreak78

    I am an Obama supporter, but I think his failure in the health care debate has been that he hss failed to clearly articulate its details to the American pulic (especially the more controversial aspects, abortion, death panel rumors, etc.). Most people don’t know what or who the health care bill covers and then you have both sides, liberals and conservatives, making stuff up as they go along (not to mention all the conspiracy theorists who think everything is a covert Illuminati operation).

    That aside–the fact that Rush Limbaugh decided to call out an elementary school student about the death of his mother is deplorable. It’s not even as if he was just generally making the statement that the boy’s mother would have died anyway. He seemed to be taking a perverse pleasure in telling the boy that directly because Obama’s health care bill supporters have rallied around him. For that, I hope he chews on a grenade and dies.

  • Dani Rai

    I know i’m going to get hate for this but Rush was right (no matter how mean it sounded) obamacare want happen til 2014 and the kids mom wouldn’t hvae made it.
    My big questions are who is going to pay for all this health care?, why are people using kids to get what they want?, and with so many other problems going on in this country why is giving people something they can’t afford such a big deal?
    It’s you can afford health care than get health care.

    ask yourself this. With tens of dozens of schools across America closing down why isn’t Obama worried about than?

  • Keisha

    Adults should not be arguing with and disrespecting children. I don’t care if you’re a democrat or republican. Ridiculous. I can’t take anybody seriously that feels that if you don’t see something how they see it then you’re and an “idiot”. Please learn how to debate your point of view with facts and realize people have a right to believe what they believe.It’s the American way. Thanks.

  • RiotGirL

    I don’t believe this child’s show of support for healthcare reform was an attempt to prevent his mother’s death- but, his upstanding acknowledgement that healthcare reform is needed (based upon what he witnessed happen with his mother). Had it been available for his mother, maybe her outcome would have been different. Instead of adults demeaning this child, more should applaud and heed his activeness instead of being sideliners and criticizers.
