Rush Limbaugh questioned why Barack Obama chose to become a Christian if he is “constantly denigrating Christians” while “promoting” Islam.
Thursday on “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” Limbaugh said that while Obama “talks about how awesome Islam is” he is calling Christians “bitter clingers and they hold on to their guns when they’re nervous.” (RELATED: Obama Says Mosque With Extremist Ties Has ‘An All-American Story’)
“You know I — folks, I have a question. Barack Obama, he goes into this radical mosque in Baltimore yesterday, and he talks about how Islam has always been a part of the fabric of America, and I stopped. I said, “Really?” I didn’t know that,” Limbaugh suggested. (RELATED: The US Mosque Obama Has Chosen For His First Presidential Visit Has Deep Extremist Ties)
“I didn’t know that Islam had always been such a major, major [part of America.] But, anyway, he’s constantly talking it up, is he not? President Obama is routinely defending it, talking it up, promoting it.”
Obama “talks about how awesome Islam is all the time, one of the most beautiful sounds he’s ever heard is the morning call to prayer in an Islamic country. He says it’s the most peaceful, most giving religion out there, that the mosque called a prayer one of the most beautiful sounds in the world. And at the same time, he’s out there, look what he says about Christians. He says he is one. [But], he talks about these bitter clingers and they hold on to their guns when they’re nervous. And when they feel abandoned, they go out there and they cling to their religion, and they do all these other things that make the establishment nervous,” Limbaugh argued.
As Mediaite reported, Limbaugh’s “question is, given all this, why did [Obama] choose to become a Christian? You know, I’ve always wondered that,” Limbaugh said. Obama is “such a defender and promoter of Islam, and on the other hand he and his party are constantly denigrating Christians. I don’t care what the issue is, whether it’s guns, whether it’s gay marriage, any cultural or social issue, its [these] bitter clinger comments. I’ve always wondered about this.”
“No, I’m not saying anything. I’m just asking a question. How did he end up choosing Reverend Wright’s church, given his public statements on all this,” Limbaugh rhetorically asked.
