LA Times.com reports: Rush Limbaugh: NASCAR fans booed Michelle Obama for 'uppity-ism’
Rush Limbaugh condemns, criticizes and otherwise lambastes many things, as his radio listeners know. But Michelle Obama seems to have become a target for particularly personal attacks from the conservative radio talk-show host. First, he called out the first lady on her weight; now he says she’s guilty of "uppity-ism."
Cracking on Obama's waistline (and nicknaming her Moochelle) was offensive and personal enough. But "uppity-ism"? That phrase -- uttered on Fatso Limbaugh's Monday's edition of his show -- won't sit well with some Americans, particularly African Americans. Historically, "uppity" was considered a code word for blacks whom white people perceived as trying to rise above their station in life.
The use of the term follows the chorus of boos that the first lady and Jill Biden (wife of Vice President Joe Biden) received at a Sunday's Sprint Cup finale -- a NASCAR event -- in Florida. The pair were at the Homestead-Miami Speedway as part of their campaign to raise awareness about Joining Forces, an initiative to support military families.
