Adding to all the weird idol-worship heaped upon Israeli prime minister Bibi Netanyahu from the right, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh was sure to chime in with something utterly outrageous concerning the flap surround Netanyahu’s speech to Congress.
Invoking the divisive topic of Michael Brown’s killing, Limbaugh said that Obama is trying to “poison the jury pool” just like in Ferguson in order to turn public opinion against Netanyahu.
He went on to slam Obama as being “despicable,” claiming that the only reason he isn’t a “footnote in history” is because of the media.
But Limbaugh’s most offensive remarks were yet to come:
“You look at how Obama has treated — and does treat Netanyahu. You would think that Netanyahu was a white policeman from Ferguson, Missouri. 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.”
