Rush Blames Obama for Kansas Shootings

You knew that it was only a matter of time before some wingnut blamed President Obama for the former KKK leader who went on a shooting spree at two Jewish centers in Overland Park, Kansas. And the odds were pretty good that it would be Erik Rush who did it. And here you go:

“The anti-Semitic tone that is being tolerated, in my view, by so many in this country and as a result of the tone I believe that the administration and the press have set, they’ve chosen to capitalize on every racist incident that has happened when it is in the interests of their agenda or their ratings, fomenting racial discord between various races, between blacks and whites and the anti-Israel sentiment has become pretty much epidemic,” Rush said. “I’m kind of surprised that we haven’t seen more in the way of anti-Semitic violence.”

Uh, yeah. You do realize that the perp here was anti-Semitic long before Obama was out of high school, right? Must be Obama used that same time machine he used to go back and plant those fake birth announcement in Hawaiian newspapers, the one George Soros created using instructions from Saul Alinsky.

    Now, look, the KKK are Democrats, and Obama is a Democrat. Case solved.

     
    Need more proof? Obama (back row, third from left) and Frazier Glenn Miller (back row, fourth from left).

    I’m sure if Obama had totally capitulated to Israel on every issue and the administration had not criticized Israel in any way, he’d be complaining that this had antagonised the anti Semites by reminding them that Obama put Israel interests before American ones and so was to blame.

    Gosh, if Mr. Limbaugh is accusing us of anti-semitism, we really should take that seriously, shouldn’t we? I mean, what with him being the standard-bearer for tolerance and the rights of minorities and all.

    The anti-Semitic tone that is being tolerated….

    … and the anti-Israel sentiment has become pretty much epidemic….

    In my opinion, it’s pretty anti-Semitic to assume that American Judaism and Israel are exactly the same thing.

    The commentator isn’t Rush Limbaugh but a somewhat more deranged RWN named Erik Rush.

    Let me see if I can unravel the logic. The administration has chosen to capitalize on racial incidents, presumably for its own political gain, by going after racism whenever possible. This has in turn led to “discord between the races” because of course that’s what denouncing racism leads to (turning a blind eye to racism, on the other hand, promotes racial harmony). That in turn led to anti-Semitism, because it inflamed anti-Semites who would have been quiet and peaceful if not for Obama’s race-baiting.

    Am I close here?

    In my opinion, it’s pretty anti-Semitic to assume that American Judaism and Israel are exactly the same thing.

    And if for some reason they were, then roughly 80% of Israel voted for Obama.

    M can help you with that.

    In my opinion, it’s pretty anti-Semitic to assume that American Judaism and Israel are exactly the same thing.

    Or to assume that Israel and the militant right wing of Israel are the same thing.

    It’s the same schtick as insisting that anyone in the US who isn’t sufficiently right-wing is “anti-American” or that anyone who isn’t a far-right Protestant fundamentalist is “anti-Christian” — one faction declares that they speak for all of (the US/Israel/Christianity/Judaism/etc.) and therefore that anyone who disagrees with them is devoted to the destruction of the group as a whole.

    Or to claim the PM of Israel recently claimed, asserting that boycotting Israeli products over Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians is anti-Semitic. By that logic, the old boycott of South African products over apartheid was racist, and the pre-WWII boycotts were a fascist plot.

    Why, of course it does … for white males used to social privilege. That’s why there are all those Stand Your (White) Ground laws. Shooting uppity nig … er … young trouble makers promotes white male harmony with minorities.

    Area Man, thank you for the translation. I couldn’t make the slightest bit of sense out of that rambling run-on sentence.

    Area Man: pretty much. It’s the classic “you’re the real racist for pointing out all the racism” line. It’s an article of faith among this sort of conservative propaganda that there’s no more “real” racism against blacks, so anyone pointing out racism against blacks is “race baiting”.

    The more refined version of this propaganda line has it that the problems blacks still face are “cultural problems” which are, naturally, still their own fault.

    It didn’t rain here, so I had to hand water the plants – thanks Obama.

    Area man gets it: protesting against racism is racist. Yeah, that’s it!

    And what’s more, by allowing bigoted former KKK members like Frazier Glenn Cross, well known to the Southern Poverty Law Center, run around loose and own firearms, Obama is trying to take away our guns!

    Yeah, that’s it — that’s the ticket!
