Rush Limbaugh renamed the Black Lives Matter movement “Black Lives Murder” Monday.

On The Rush Limbaugh Show, after discussing the news that another Baltimore police officer was acquitted in the Freddie Gray death case, Limbaugh said, “This could be a problem in Baltimore now. I’m serious. This is the kind of thing that’s happening now that causes Black Lives Murder. You know, that’s what it’s becoming out there.” (RELATED: Another Officer Acquitted In Death Of Freddie Gray)

Over the past couple of weeks, five white polices officers were killed in Dallas and another three police officers were were killed in Baton Rouge. (RELATED: Baton Rouge Shooter Gavin Eugene Long Was Nation Of Islam Member, Railed Against ‘Crackers’ On YouTube Channel [VIDEO])

Later, Limbaugh said, “One of the things, not the only, but one of the flash points for all that’s happening now is the lie. A lie that has been known, a lie that wasn’t knowingly spread, a lie whose flames were knowingly fanned by people no less than Barack Obama and others ranking high in the Democrat Party, and that is ‘hands up, don’t shoot.'” (RELATED: Police: Dallas Suspect ‘Upset About Black Lives Matter,’ ‘Wanted To Kill White People’)

Referring to the events surrounding the death of Michael Brown, Limbaugh said, “The story coming out of Ferguson, Missouri, ‘hands up, don’t shoot,’ that the Gentle Giant was walking innocently down the street on an idyllic Saturday afternoon in August thinking passionately about his first year away at college. Ahem. All of a sudden was gunned down by a racist white cop who went hunting for a young black male. And what was this man’s grievance? What was his alleged crime? He was walking in the street, not the sidewalk. And he put his hands up, he said, ‘Don’t shoot, don’t shoot.’ And the cop fired, and the Gentle Giant was dead.”

“Every word of that is a lie, and yet it has spread, it did spread, and it has become part of the information packet for Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panther Party,” Limbaugh said. “Imagine if the president of the United States had done a national address and knocked down every falsehood of that, instead of giving it life. Instead of sending Eric Holder out there to make it look like they didn’t trust the local grand jury and their results, what if the president had simply said, ‘Folks, you’re believing stuff that didn’t happen.’ People believe the president for whatever reason, no matter who he happens to be, and he didn’t say that.”
