Rush Limbaugh: James Bond Can’t Be Black

Daniel Gates, MSN, December 23, 2014

Rush Limbaugh does not like the idea of a black James Bond. On Tuesday, the radio host ranted about the possibility of Idris Elba portraying 007 in the future, as suggested in some of the stolen emails leaked following the Sony hack. Listen to what Limbaugh said here.

After mentioning the Sony emails and telling his listeners who Elba is, Limbaugh said, “Here’s the thing, though . . . James Bond is a fictional character, obviously. James Bond was invented, created by Ian Fleming . . . and James Bond is . . . white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is.”

“But now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton rather than a white from Scotland,” continued Limbaugh. “But that’s NOT who James Bond is, and I know it’s racist to probably even point this out… We had 50 years of white Bonds because Bond is white. Bond was never black. Ian Fleming never created a black Brit to play James Bond. The character was always white. He was always Scottish.”

  • I heard that myself; after that, he speculated what would happen if they cast a white person as Barack Obama in a future movie about his life and career.

      The city would burn.

    Only black literary and fictional characters have to be forever and always black.

    Everything and everyone else is negotiable.

      Exactly. Whites are just generic, formless people who can be molded into whatever, but Blacks are a distinct group of people who can claim things as their own. We are being made into non-persons.

    It seems that the invaders of our Island may be British but are never English, Scottish, Welsh or Irish. In these unfortunate days, a great many natives of the British Isle no longer call themselves British – I never do.
    Possibly, soon I will be arrested for writing like this.

      Exactly. That is also the reason why they don’t like the English flag – but love the British Union Jack.

  • If this occurs, all whites should boycott it. We must stop supporting all this negro crap that’s always being crammed down our throats—Selma, Django Unchained, etc. Even if we don’t see these awful movies, we’re still bombarded by it—reviews, accolades, etc. on TV, print media etc. We just can’t get away from this never-ending junk.

      Such movies are usually flops at the box office, but that is usually not the point. Because – believe it or not – even billionaires are humans that want to be respected by their peers. So they produce movies with a “social message” that bomb at the box office but give them Oscars, prestige and invitations to parties.

      Read the book “Hollywood vs. America” where the case is made (convincingly) that the whole cultural revolution was never profitable for Hollywood – the biggest loss of box office sales was the year after the industry renounced the policy where they made sure the movies were “family-friendly” (no offensive language, etc.)

      After they scrapped that, the box office sales took a nosedive – but they continued with it because of peer pressure – and not because of money.

      So to come back on topic: It DOES NOT MATTER whether whites boycott the movie because that is not the point. The point is to appease to the Hollywood-elite, not moviegoers. Sure they would like to make a profit as well, but if they don’t – well they can afford it.

        Which one? There’s a book by critic Michael Medved or another by Alan Smithee??

        • nBmnp

          The one by Michael Medved.

          The interesting part is that he shows (by calculation) that this decline in ticket sales were bigger than those caused by the VHS revolution (which is normally blamed for the decline of movie theatres).

          That basically proves that they don’t profit from filth but that they are willing to lose money to push it on us.

    A black author should write a decent spy novel or whatever and then have a brother cast as the lead. When they are capable of creating their own art, then they can put their own people in leading roles. It’s bad enough they made the Equalizer black and are thinking of doing likewise with Spiderman.

    Always Jews deciding this kind of malarky, what gives with them?

    Is this their idea of Tikkun olam “heal the world”?
