Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh finds it hard these days to find a difference between “the Iranian regime” and the Democratic Party, citing the Iran foreign ministry’s statement instructing the United States to stop its “racist” crackdown of blacks.
Limbaugh, fresh off his interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” said he can’t “tell the difference sometimes between the Iranian regime and the Democrat Party.” Specifically, Limbaugh noted that rhetoric about America by former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is eerily similar to talk from longtime Democrats, with the host citing Secretary of State John Kerry and Sen. Dick Durbin.
Limbaugh: This is from Washington Free Beacon, here’s the headline: “Iran Instructs U.S.: Stop the ‘Racist’ Crackdown on Blacks.” Iran lashed out at the United States and the Obama regime yesterday, demanding that America immediately take action to end its racist inhumane crackdown on blacks and other minorities, according to a statement from the Iran foreign ministry as the controversy over the gentle giant and Eric Garner continues to roil the country. Iran accused America of hypocrisy on the human rights front and of being a racist nation.
“You know, sometimes, I mentioned this during the 2012 presidential campaign, I can’t tell the difference sometimes between the Iranian regime and the Democrat Party. I listened to that, he’s gone now, Ahmadinejad running around talking about America sounded just like John Kerry talking about America. Ahmadinejad ripping into America sounded just like the way Dick Durbin does it. You couldn’t tell the difference between the Iranians and the Democrats, and now look?! The Iranians accusing us, The United States, of inherent inhumane racism and demanding we do something about it. These are the people that behave toward women according to Sharia Law, which means the last thing you want to be in Iran is a woman. Just amazing. You can’t tell the difference. If you didn’t put, an identifier before some of these phrases, you couldn’t tell the difference between an Iranian official and a member of the Democratic Party.”
