Rush Limbaugh

Ice-T Responds To Rush Limbaugh’s Rant – “I’m Also A Veteran”


(AllHipHop News) Ice-T escalated his war of words with Rush Limbaugh via Twitter, after the right-wing talking head called the rapper out on his popular talk show “The Rush Limbaugh Show.”

Rush Limbaugh blasted Ice-T on his show Monday (July 24), after the rapper defended gun rights on during an interview about the Aurora, Colorado shootings that left 12 people dead on July 20.

“I’ll give up my gun when everyone else does,” Ice-T  told UK Channel 4 News after the shootings. “If there were guns here would you want to be the only person with out one? The right to bear arms because that’s the last defense against tyranny, not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police. If somebody wants to kill people, they don’t need a gun to do it. You can strap explosives on your body, they do that all the time.”

The comments didn’t sit well with Rush Limbaugh, who took aim at Ice-T on his daily show.

“There’s Ice-T saying the only reason we got guns in America is ‘to protect yourself from the police,'” Rush Limbaugh laughed. “Well, we’re told, ‘Hey, its cultural. We gotta understand it from the cultural standpoint. That’s where Mr. T’s [Ice-T] is coming from.” He knew the word ‘tyranny’ and he knows that tyranny comes from government representatives. Double impressive. Tyranny doesn’t come from media figures, or actors.”

Ice-T replied to Rush Limbaugh’s comments yesterday evening, and continued to discuss the issue today (July 25).

“Before you challenge me do your research,” Ice-T tweeted. “I’ve lectured at Stanford, Princeton & Harvard to name a few… I just might be smarter than YOU.”

Ice took aim at today’s rapper’s as well, claiming the new breed of emcees are less politicized than the previous generation of artists.

“I love how people are soooo SHOCKED to hear something thought-provoking said by a rapper.. Hip Hop has changed to POP .. Nobody says shit. My comment on guns got a lot of press.. They call me ‘Gangster’ don’t forget ‘US Army Vet.’ A little gun history.”

Ice-T labeled Rush Limbaugh a “racist piece of s**t” and told his 272,673 followers that if they supported Rush Limbaugh or Bill O’Reilly, they should stop following him.

“No matter what.. There will ALWAYS be two sides to every issue.. Have the courage to chose one,” Ice-T advised.

  • ice spoke he truth. obviously u need guns to hunt & protect u from criminals but the bigger picture & most important is to protect u from corrupt governments or breakdown of society

  • zkinter36

    I find it humerous that this Right wing Ahole is speaking out on gun control… Really? The FatA$$ drug addict should stay in his lane and not juxtapose what Ice T says. As Ice T says when Ivan Drago goes down on Johnny Neumonic… Piece of $#!T

  • Ice T is telling the truth…And they dont wanna hear that.

  • dj blendz

    interesting.. you would think someone like Rush Limbaugh would be in agreement with Ice-T about American citizens having the right to own guns.

    • This article is misleading, he is in agreement with Ice T’s views on gun rights. If you listen to his show there is no doubt, but this article is looking to start a fight where one does not exist.

  • YungKizz

    O.G. ICE -T SLAMZ WACK AZZ RUSH

  • PorchBoySlim

    the crazy thing about it is that Thomas Jefferson is the one that said the second amendment is to protect us from tyranny lol…Rush is a jackass

  • Slaughtr

    Todays artist have no concept of politics and that’s why I respect my generation for involving theirself in challenging media fucks who blast out MC’s like were stupid.All respect to Ice met him way back when he spoke alot about America and it’s bullshit ideaology.

  • I followed Ice T on twitter because of : ” Ice-T told his 272,673 followers that if they supported Rush Limbaugh or Bill O’Reilly, they should stop following him.”…….Yeah! I’m following Ice T , a real OG!

  • HipHip Libertarian

    I’m glad to be smart enough to agree with Ice T about guns, but not co-sign with him about Rush Linbaugh being a racist. Too many people throw that word around when they disagree with someone of the opposite race. As a member of the first generation of Hip Hop my views have changed on things as has Ice-T’s. We have to protect ourselves from a govt that will make us buy things for our own good regardless if we agree or not.

    • aschrec

      Normally I would agree with you, but in this case, Ice T isn’t far off his mark. Rush has always kind of been a racist bastard, and he was acting like it here…so I support Ice T calling him out on it.

  • I think this article is misleading. Rush was not ‘taking aim’ or ‘blasting’ Ice T. I think he was pointing out that Ice T has more of an understanding of tyranny and freedom than most American liberals. I don’t see in this article a justification for “Those comments didn’t sit well…” It seems like the author wanted to find a problem with Rush when Rush was actually praising Ice T’s conservative position on the right to bear firearms.

    • If you listen to the full clip, Rush is clearly laughing at the “sophisticate” reporter. He’s not laughing at Ice T. Ice T’s comment that Rush is a racist is disappointing, and it’s articles like this that encourage that false notion that this is racism on display. Ice T hates Rush, and Rush probably doesn’t have a big problem with Ice T. Who’s the real bigot?

      • aschrec

        You might be right IF Rush hadn’t of said this right before…”
        “There’s Ice-T saying the only reason we got guns in America is ‘to protect yourself from the police,’” Rush Limbaugh laughed. “Well, we’re told, ‘Hey, its cultural. We gotta understand it from the cultural standpoint. That’s where Mr. T’s [Ice-T] is coming from.” After that he goes on the be ‘double impressed’ by his knowledge of the word. Trust me, Rush is 100% a racist. Always has been, and he’s never been meek in making comments like these or worse before.

  • Truthonitsway

    Both are self made men with a lot in common and both men support the second amendment. Limbaugh is no racist he shares the EIB with other black conservatives. The comment sounded like a backhanded compliment to Ice T/Scott Appleton
    Both men despite being censored and vilified maintain talented careers with a huge following. Moreover, both are married to bodacious blonds. El Rushbro, an OG of upholding true Americanism for all.

    Ice T is speaking the unvarnished truth. He’s right about Limbaugh and O’Reilly too. I’ve been boycotting Limbaugh for years, and I started boycotting O’Reilly this year.
    I’m a middle-aged, conservative, home-schooling, and Irish. Ice T has infinitely more credibility with me than Limbaugh or O’Reilly. Ice T is smarter than both of those two bozos put together, and infinitely more honest. Besides, he’s a veteran like me and most of my friends. He understands what’s at stake in the current 2nd amendment debate.
