Limbaugh: Effort to Raise Awareness for Kidnapped Nigerian Girls “Pathetic,” Suggests Obama is to Blame

limbaugh-idiotSometimes I wonder what Rush Limbaugh would have to do in order to get conservatives to finally say, “Enough is enough, he has to go.”  This guy doesn’t even hide the fact that he’s a racist, sexist, hate-filled bigot.  But despite it all, he’s still a popular fixture with conservatives because “he sure as heck hates them filthy liberals.”

That’s basically the measuring stick when it comes to conservatives.  You can say pretty much anything as long as you hate the right people.

Well, Limbaugh took it up a notch when he called the Twitter campaign #BringBackOurGirls “pathetic.”  It’s a hashtag campaign aimed at increasing the public’s awareness about the 300 Nigerian girls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram.

Limbaugh said, “I just think this is pathetic. I’m just stunned. We got 300 Nigerian girls kidnapped by an Al Qaeda group, and nobody cared or talked about it for a while, Hillary wouldn’t call ‘em a terror group.  Now all of a sudden, for some reason, we’re on a big push to get ‘em back and this is how? ”

Of course what really triggered this ignorant tirade was a photo Michelle Obama took of her holding a sign reading “#BringBackOurGirls.”  Because, you know, scumbags like Limbaugh really have to politicize everything.

Oh, but then it got better.

Limbaugh then said, “I want to ask you, what message does this send?  And then I want to ask you, is the United States really this powerless?  And then if you answer yes, we are really this powerless, then isn’t Obama to blame?”

Yes, that’s Rush Limbaugh suggesting that because this happened, and the United States hasn’t been able to get them back yet, that it’s somehow Obama’s fault for making us “powerless.”

Of course the social media awareness push isn’t going to directly help rescue those poor girls.  It’s just something people are doing to try to make more people aware of a horrific situation happening in another country that most weren’t aware was going on.

But that doesn’t matter for a bottom-feeder like Rush Limbaugh.  He saw a photo of Michelle Obama holding this sign and just couldn’t help himself, he had to attack the movement and try to twist it into some kind of political jab at the Obama administration.

These people who continue to give this pathetic excuse for a human being any kind of support should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.

    Creeps like Limbaugh, and I am sure Bachman Palin Overkill and most “Christian Hate Groups” should have listened to an interview on national (but not hate) tv interview in which a Kenyan government official stated that an agressive attack would likely backfire, resulting in the murder of these girls.

  • Linda Allen

    Well Russ if you don’t feel enough is being done, get off your fat bottom, quit wagging your tongue, and go to Nigeria yourself and hunt them down. You wouldn’t last a day.

  • Mrs_oatmeal

    I’ve always thought Rush’s ideas for handling international affairs was spot on. (LOL ). Let’s get the ass hat a plane and send him over to negotiate. Put your money where your mouth is, Rushy!

  • Idon’tCareBear

    Not to deliberately agree with this guy, but it seems like he’s objecting to what you’re objecting to, the frivolous politicization of a legitimate and serious issue.

    • Rebecca Glesener Davis

      You’re giving this POS too much credit. He’s not that nice, nor that intelligent.

      • Idon’tCareBear

        Yeah but think about it, how utterly, terribly meaningless some brain dead hashtag campaign is in the face of the human suffering going on here, I’m not saying that he’s right to be a dick about it but he right that it’s a hollow and sanctimonious gesture at the end of the day when you have the power to fix this sort of situation and aren’t using it.

  • robingee

    “Now all of a sudden, for some reason, we’re on a big push to get ‘em back and this is how?”

    No, this is how we raise awareness. No one thinks this is going to “get ’em back”. He just says things to say them.

  • thesquire1

    How stunning that people like Limbaugh have managed to ignore the kidnapping for more than a week or so until they suddenly figure they may be able to make some political point ? Fox still thinks the farce over Benghazi is more important too !

    • meatwad_SSuppet

      How many US embassies were attacked under the last bush? About seven??

      • suburbancuurmudgeon

        10 attacks with 60 dead.

      • Cathy Neal

        That does not count the 911 terrorist attack which the bush adminstration had been warned about for months prior.

      • suburbancuurmudgeon

        Yeah, I love it when conservatives praise Bush because “he kept us safe.” Well, not really.

  • Jerry Graybosch

    Rush should be thankful this isn’t about missing boys and he has an alibi.

  • fairmont66

    I’m with Wanda Sykes in regardless to Limbaugh “”i hope his kidneys fail”

  • patricia travis

    You go girls! Hashtag your hate! All of you feel good, do nothing liberals are exactly whats wrong with this country. We used to have a country that others respected and the creeps that stole these girls would be running for their lives! But now… we have a first lady holding up a hash tag message…OOOhhh, that will fix those mean ole guys! If we had a president with at least 1 ball, this would be settled and America would be the hero… like it used to be. Now we are run by a bunch of paja-boys and money stealing bureaucrats that tell us how we should live and an impotent president, that heaven forbid, if you disagree with then you must be a racist. Now… bring on the name calling hate, cause that’s all you have! I won’t be back to read it anyway… waste of time

    • Fitz

      Agree with you 100%. Classy and intellectual liberals that hope his kidneys fail. So humane, open minded and tolerant.

      • Jen Adamo

        You want tolerance from US … for the bile that Limbaugh spews daily? LOL! You’re a special kind of delusional. You keep expecting Liberals to sit around singing Kumbayah and just taking it up the ass from the likes of Limbaugh? Think again. Those days are over.

      • L B

        You kidding? You spew hate and racism and you are the reason so many young gay kids take their own lives or are bullied and expect tolerance toward your monstrous behavior? In what planet do you live again?

      • meatwad_SSuppet

        They live in Jesusville, where everything is in concrete and aluminium siding, with white picket fences and a soon to be stolen by wall street portfolio in every pocket.

      • DavidD

        I’m a redneck who made his living with his back so I’m not that tolerant .humane or open minded . I hope Rush strokes out on the air so Ted Cruz can take his place when we get rid of him here down in Texas.
        They are both worthless piles of dogmeat.
        If you agree so much super patriot then put your money where your mouth is and enlist or get your kids to go.

    • Jen Adamo

      So idiots like you want to send your kids into every country that does something bad to fight and die? Be my guest. Send your kids or go yourself. Maybe the parents of those girls will take up a collection to pay you to be mercenaries.
      But if you think we should go around bombing more people (aren’t some of you the ones who condemn him for drone strikes?) all over the world so we can play the role of Big Bad Muricans, think again.
      WTF are you trying to say? SHould we be in perpetual war so you can show how big your balls are?
      Redneck idjits!
      And yeah… run and hide. You ConservaTrolls always do the hit and run. Too afraid to stand up for your stupid ideas?

      • meatwad_SSuppet

        Or like ronnie ray-gun that negotiated with terrorist as he denied doing so.

      • DavidD

        Hey i’m a redneck.I work for a living.
        These super patriots are one way chicken hawks who think they are too good to work for a living.
        People of “quality” came up with terms like redneck,white trash or hillbillys because we worked while they lived off slavery.
        My people are Scot-Irish from Appalachia,You need to stop using ethnic slurs and treat us like allies and individuals and many of us will be happy to return the favor.

    • L B

      @patriciatravis:disqus : You stupid bitch. If this country lost respect is because of you republican morons, and I know because I’m from abroad. You asshole greedy and stupid conservatives are not just what’s wrong with America but what’s wrong with the world. Your head is so far up your ass that any sense of reality is lost on you. Go to Nigeria dumb ass. Yes, you are a waste of time and oxygen.

    • meatwad_SSuppet

      Actually the major first step to our police state was served very nicely by the Con-Serving anti other intoxicant crowd known as conservatives and their personal hatred for the hippy pot head. For that personal agenda of hate, you created this police state that you finally recognized as the police state. Funny that some serious alcoholics are the loudest voices against the freedoms for all, as our Constitution demands. Put a stop to the illegal prohibitions against other intoxicants. The very worst and most damaging intoxicant out there is booze. But don’t tell the drunks that, they may kill you while all buzzed up on their booze.

    • suburbancuurmudgeon

      WTF are you ranting about? Nigeria is halfway around the world. You think they care what we do or don’t do? Remind me how Bush saved the day when Putin invaded Georgia.

    • DavidD

      Sign up,I mean enlist now and put your money where your mouth is.I ‘ve done my time while Rush got his deferment.
      If you’re too old then send your kids.Talking tough and then ducking action to do something about it is common among chickenhawks like Limbaugh.
      Do you fit that description also?I don’t think you have seen the blood splatter from the floor to the ceiling or you wouldn’t talk such nonsense.

  • Jim Bernardi

    It would be nice to think that Limbaugh’s point is that we haven’t done enough to get them back. What’s he doing?

  • meatwad_SSuppet

    Someone get him of video avoiding the questions of what he was doing with condoms and viagra on a vacation without his wife, and of course doped up on oxicontin. Strange that the location of his condom use was a sex tourist location for pedophiles.

  • MLR

    Allen you already know that as far as the nut jobs like Rush and his followers are concerned everything is Obama’s fault. Hell, Obama is blamed for shit that happened before he was in office. I have an idea, why don’t we pick a scandal from a previous administration and blame it on Obama. Iran-Contra? yep Obama’s fault, Katrina? yep Obama’s fault, Iraq? yep Obama’s fault, Watergate? You betcha it’s Obama’s fault.

  • Ronald Ventola

    Hell no! Obama is BEHIND the kidnapping. Every right wing nut job suspects it. Look, he’s black, like the kidnappers, he’s Kenyan, that’s in Africa, and HIS daughters were safe in the White House when it happened…not a coinsidence!

  • Ronald Ventola

    My car was broken into in D.C., just a few days after Obama was elected. It had to be his fault.

  • Wanda Schlegel

    Lol Ronald! Obama was responsible for the missing jet, he does have a daughter named Malaysia! Had to be true, I read it on the internet!

  • Kain

    Personally, I think Obama’s a clueless asshat, his wife a sanctimonious hypocrite, and Limbaugh’s straight up a classic prick. I have absolutely NO faith in our government today, and find myself speechless whenever my children approach me with questions about our leadership, war, politics, etc. I have heard over and over how the next guy will flip this nation around and make us the “Land of Opportunity” once again. Once elected, seems they lose direction and forget their own directives and promises. I envy no one the Position of President, wouldn’t do the job for any amount of money, but I wish for once, the people who feel they are more than capable of doing the job, would be just that….capable.
