Rush Limbaugh condemned by Supervisor Eric Mar

Rush Limbaugh has come under fire again from a San Francisco politician.

Supervisor Eric Mar condemned the conservative talk show host for remarks many have found offensive to the Chinese community. Mar wants the Board of Supervisors to approve the resolution Tuesday that demands Limbaugh apologizes.

Mar said he is joining others around the country “condemning Rush Limbaugh’s racially insensitive and derogatory remarks mocking Chinese President Hu Jintao and all Chinese people.”

State Sen. Leland Yee has also condemned Limbaugh and called for a boycott of advertisers of the talk show.

During his Jan. 19 talk show broadcast, Limbaugh “mocked the Chinese language and culture by doing a gross misrepresentation impersonation of Chinese President Hu Jintao during his visit to the United States,” Mar said.

“Rush Limbaugh represents a regressive stance in American society by belittling the Chinese community with his mocking of the Chinese language and the President of China.  His remarks show extreme disrespect to Chinese Americans that have struggled and made great contributions to this country,” the resolution says.
