RUSH LIMBAUGH: School principal in a New York public school -- Public School 169, Sunset Park, Brooklyn -- has banned Santa Claus, Thanksgiving, and the Pledge of Allegiance. And I was watching on Fox today as a woman from ThinkProgress or whatever it is went and defended this.


You have screwballs like this elementary school principal and you have nut jobs like Melissa Harris-Perry or whatever the name -- at MSNBC. You know that she's a professor at Wake Forest, and do you know her latest tirade? Get this. Darth Vader is racist because he's all black. The character wears black, black helmet, black cape, black boots, and it's a subtle message that black people are evil, mean, murdering killers. And she's dead serious about it folks and she's on a tirade. She's on MSNBC talking about it, but worse than that she's a professor at Wake Forest. She went into a mini rant yesterday morning about racism in Star Wars as she complained about the villain Darth Vader being “totally a black guy when he was cutting off white men's hands who did not claim his son and then became a white man after he claims his son and goes over to the good.” This is sick. This is literally mentally unstable sick. This woman's a college professorette. She has a TV show. She's talking about a freaking cartoon. A movie. Star Wars.


This is insanity. This is the kind of thing that ought to get her fired. This is so irresponsible. Damn straight it should, why are you looking at me that way? I know she's got tenure and can't be fired. This principal at this public school in New York. This is not just the war on Christmas. There is a war on America being taken or engaged in by the American left. It's not new. It's just ramping up here.
