Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday argued the Obama “regime” — as well as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama — “sympathize” with radical Islamic terror group Boko Haram.
Limbaugh also said the recent hashtag activism promoted by the first lady is actually “aimed at helping” the terrorists of Boko Haram.
“The Regime, Hillary, Michelle Obama sympathize with Boko Haram,” Limbaugh said. “They’re blaming the Christian Nigerian government for creating Boko Haram, and they want to get rid of the Nigerian government, because if you do that, if you appease the terror group by getting rid of the group you think is responsible for their existence, then you’ve made peace with them. You’ve made friends with them and they’ll leave us alone, or whatever convoluted thinking. I’m sorry, my ability to comprehend liberalism only goes so far.”
The radio host also noted an old New York Times op-ed that apparently argued that “Boko Haram is not the problem.” Reading from a FrontPage Mag article, Limbaugh said:
“The op-ed contended that Boko Haram didn’t exist, that it was a peaceful splinter group and that the Nigerian army was worse than Boko Haram. … The editorial warned the US not to give the impression that it supports Nigeria’s Christian president or it would infuriate Muslims and suggested that Christians might really be behind the Muslim terror attacks.”
