Following Friday’s deadly shooting at the Empire State Building, Rush Limbaugh used the incident to draw a comparison to President Obama and Democrats. Mr. Limbaugh stated the shooter “was fired yesterday,” then immediately associated it with Mr. Obama. “He went out there and he killed his boss. I wonder if Obama’s constant warfare on bosses and so forth might have led this guy to pull the trigger?”
“Yes, I said it, and we’re not gonna bleep it out. I’ll guarantee you. The last time there was a shooting in New York, who’d the mayor blame it on? Tea Party people that didn’t like health care, right? Gabby Giffords, you name it. The shooting out in Colorado? Brian Ross said the Tea Party did it. Well, here you have a guy shooting his boss for being fired. Who’s out there ripping bosses to shreds every day? Who’s out there ripping businesses to shreds every day?
And who’s out there killing jobs every day?”
Not sparing Mayor Bloomberg or Democrats, Mr. Limbaugh launched more scathing attacks:
“By the way, Mayor Doomberg went out there and immediately stressed the shooting had no relation to terrorism. And that’s how we know that the alleged perp can’t be connected to the Tea Party, because people like Doomberg and the Democrats think the Tea Party’s a bunch of terrorists.”
