Rush Limbaugh: Obama Thinks White People ‘Deserve’ Ebola for Slavery
On Monday, radio host Rush Limbaugh claimed that President Obama wants Ebola in the United States because he thinks white people “deserve” Ebola as payback for slavery.
“They say it’s hard to get, Obama’s telling us that, the CDC guy is telling us it’s hard to get,” Limbaugh said. He added that “an author” had told him “in his own politically correct way, that we bear the responsibility for these people in Africa getting this disease, and we can’t turn our back on them because of that.”
Limbaugh claimed that the author believed Liberia would never have been founded if freed slaves didn’t colonize it and that’s why Obama hasn’t banned travel from West African nations.
“The danger that we have now is that we’ve elected people in positions of power and authority who think this or think like this in terms of this country being responsible, this country being to blame for things,” Limbaugh said of his apparently infallible and unblamable country. “And it’s that kind of thinking that leads to opposition to shutting down airports from these various countries, it leads to opposition to keeping these people out of the country. How dare we?”
“Well that means that anything that happens to anybody here because of that policy, we kind of deserve it,” Limbaugh continued. “And it’s a perverted convoluted way of thinking, and it’s there. Political correctness has been around for a long time, and it’s always been over there, it’s always been fringe. But it isn’t fringe anymore because we’ve elected people who think this way.”
