Conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh chimed in on the tensions between the White House and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, reported The Huffington Post.
“You look at how Obama has treated and does treat Netanyahu, you would think that Netanyahu was a white policeman from Ferguson, Missouri,” said Limbaugh. “I mean, that’s the conclusion that you would come to. Or that he was one of the cops that choked Eric Garner, or he was one of the jurors in the Trayvon Martin case.”
“I find it despicable what this regime is trying to do with Netanyahu. But it makes sense; I know who they are. They don’t like Netanyahu,” he continued. “This administration’s foreign policy apparatus: Israel is the problem, just like in the rest of the world the United States is and has been.”
Limbaugh’s comparison between political tensions and racially-motivated murders in America is long stretch. However, leave it to Limbaugh to draw nonexistent connections between two completely different things.
This comparison just exemplifies Limbaugh’s vehement, sensationalistic brand of political commentary. Sadly, people eat up this kind of stuff. It’s all gut-check reactions devoid of any intelligent thought.
Below is the audio clip of Limbaugh’s show.
