Limbaugh Thinks Obama Wants To “Kill Christians” | Mother Jones

leave a comment »

Rush Limbaugh set a new low for reactionary tribalism on Friday when he reflexively defended Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army after hearing that President Barack Obama was sending a hundred U.S. troops to Uganda to assist in capturing or killing the warlord.

Following some (extremely) superficial Googling, Limbaugh surmised that the LRA were “Christians” who were “fighting the Muslims in Sudan” and therefore wonderful people. In fact Kony and the LRA are what Human Rights Watch’s Kenneth Roth describes as a group of “roving mass murderers” that “descends on a remote village, slaughters every adult in sight, and then kidnaps the children, some shockingly young—the boys to become soldiers slinging AK-47s, the girls to serve as “bush wives.”

Limbaugh then deduced from Obama’s decision to send troops to help fight the LRA that the massacres of Coptic Christians in Cairo carried out by the Egyptian military were done with Obama’s tacit support as well, because Obama offered rhetorical support to the protesters who brought down former Egyptian Dictator Hosni Mubarak.
