Limbaugh Embraces Radical Conspiracy, Claims Obama Might Have Helped Plan Chemical Attack

limbaugh1Rush Limbaugh spouting off nonsense is nothing new.  Anyone who’s even remotely into politics has heard of the man and knows his political opinions and loudmouthed rants are nothing but pure trash.

He’s a racist, a bigot, a womanizer—just about any negative adjective you can come up with, it would most likely apply to Rush Limbaugh.

But even with some of the worst characters on earth, there’s usually a level to which even they won’t stoop.  And as disgusting of a human being as Limbaugh is, I was actually somewhat shocked to see him give credence to an absolutely ludicrous conspiracy theory about Syria — that President Obama gave Syrian rebels the go ahead to use chemical weapons, in order to justify a strike against Assad.

Yes, you’ve read that correctly.  Rush Limbaugh has insinuated he just might support the idea that the Obama administration knows the rebels fighting Assad are the ones using the chemical weapons on their own people, and he’s allowing it because it will help justify sending our military into the country.  Not only that, the article which Rush cites implies that President Obama could very well be the one behind the chemical weapon attacks.

Basically, for Rush Limbaugh, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that President Obama is behind the chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Otherwise, as Rush asked, “Why then the sanctimonious rush to blame the Assad administration?”

Hmm…  Maybe because the Assad administration is responsible.  Only conspiracy theorist nuts and fear mongering individuals like Limbaugh would buy into this ridiculous notion that rebels are gassing their own people with Obama’s blessing, so he can send our military into Syria.

But I could only imagine if President Obama decided to authorize military action two years ago — then Limbaugh (and other Republicans) would have slammed him for getting the United States into more wars we can’t afford.

Basically, no matter what Obama decided to do about Syria, they would simply bash him for not doing the opposite.  That’s been the Republican party’s philosophy since he took office.

Once upon a time, ridiculous conspiracy theories such as these were reserved for idiots like Alex Jones, but as Republicans embrace more radical party ideologies, it seems the conspiracies are becoming more mainstream.  And like it or not, with over 14 million weekly listeners and the #1 talk radio program in the country, Rush Limbaugh is not only mainstream, but he also carries huge influence with the Republican party.

And even as much as I detest the man, for him to insinuate that he might support this asinine theory that our government might be behind the sarin gas attacks in Syria slightly surprised me.

Not a lot, mind you—just slightly.  From some bottom feeder like Alex Jones who makes a living off pushing fear and paranoia, it’s to be expected.  But Limbaugh?  Well, on second thought…

That’s exactly what Rush Limbaugh does as well.
