Rush Limbaugh and 'Operation Chaos' - "wishes for Riots"

Following from my previous post on Rush Limbaugh's 'Operation Chaos', a caller managed to make Rush squirm by calling him on some of his incendiary insinuations.

Listen to the caller speaking to Rush here
CALLER: You made the comment, um, I think one of the call -- your callers that called in, you were saying that you were hoping for riots if the Democrats choose Hillary over Obama, and you even kind of sang your statement to the tune of I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas, or did you mean a white country?
RUSH: Oh, ho-ho-ho-ho-ho! (laughing)
CALLER: What -- what exactly did you mean by those statements yesterday?
RUSH: (laughing) Yeah.
CALLER: Because I feel like all Americans, the American people want is what's best for this country.
RUSH: No, they don't.
CALLER: Why do you have to be such a hate-filled comment from you --
RUSH: Oh, now, Lisa?
CALLER: -- and other radio hosts?

Rush hit back by accusing the caller of being the one preoccupied with race and was in fact the racist. He cited events from Chicago in 68' where there had already been an example of race-fueled fighting amongst Democrats
Mayor Daley's cops, his thugs went out there and were attacking Democrats, and the SDS was there and all the anti-war crowd -- the Jerry Rubins and the Tom Haydens -- they were starting fires and so forth, and the Democrats sent Mayor Daley's thugs out there to beat 'em upside the head! There have been countless commentators and columnists and pundits throughout the Drive-By Media, lamenting the fact that if the superdelegates don't give this nomination to Obama that they're going to have to a repeat of '68 in Chicago. Now, what the hell was that? What happened in '68 in Chicago? We all know it.
