Yes, Native Americans and slave descendants. It certainly seems like the sort of story just waiting for Limbaugh to say something off-color about. However, today he was just too distracted by the Cherokee specifics. “They have their own Supreme Court?!” he marveled.
“So we have a whole little country here operating in America with their own rules,” Limbaugh summed up. “They need the largesse of the federal government but they don’t want to live with federal rules. I kind of like that.”
I'm confident he knows nothing about the Freedmen issue. In fact, I bet he's cheering the Cherokees for expelling the Freedmen because he doesn't like blacks.
"I'm glad someone isn't afraid to deal with America's welfare moochers and cheaters," he might've said. "While the liberal elites in the US government bow and scrape to the darkies, the savage Indians are willing to teach them a lesson."
