Rush Limbaugh Defended Joseph Kony, Leader Of Rebel Militia Accused Of Atrocities

Joseph Kony, the African strongman who is suddenly a major villain thanks to a viral video about his atrocities, has a friend in Rush Limbaugh.

In 2011, President Obama sent American troops to fight Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, a guerilla group in Uganda. The LRA has been condemned for human rights violations and using child soldiers to carry out atrocities. A video from the charity group, the Invisible Children, about Kony and the violence in central Africa, has garnered nearly 40 million views since it went up on Youtube three days ago.

But last October, Limbaugh blasted the president for committing troops to “wipe out Christians.”

WATCH:

Lord’s Resistance Army are Christians.  It means God.  I was only kidding.  Lord’s Resistance Army are Christians.  They are fighting the Muslims in Sudan.  And Obama has sent troops, United States troops to remove them from the battlefield, which means kill them.  That’s what the lingo means, “to help regional forces remove from the battlefield,” meaning capture or kill.

So that’s a new war, a hundred troops to wipe out Christians in Sudan, Uganda, and — (interruption) no, I’m not kidding.  Jacob Tapper just reported it.  Now, are we gonna help the Egyptians wipe out the Christians?  Wouldn’t you say that we are?  I mean the Coptic Christians are being wiped out, but it wasn’t just Obama that supported that.  The conservative intelligentsia thought it was an outbreak of democracy.  Now they’ve done a 180 on that, but they forgot that they supported it in the first place.  Now they’re criticizing it.

Lord’s Resistance Army objectives.  I have them here.  “To remove dictatorship and stop the oppression of our people.” Now, again Lord’s Resistance Army is who Obama sent troops to help nations wipe out.  The objectives of the Lord’s Resistance Army, what they’re trying to accomplish with their military action in these countries is the following:  “To remove dictatorship and stop the oppression of our people; to fight for the immediate restoration of the competitive multiparty democracy in Uganda; to see an end to gross violation of human rights and dignity of Ugandans; to ensure the restoration of peace and security in Uganda, to ensure unity, sovereignty, and economic prosperity beneficial to all Ugandans, and to bring to an end the repressive policy of deliberate marginalization of groups of people who may not agree with the LRA ideology.”  Those are the objectives of the group that we are fighting, or who are being fought and we are joining in the effort to remove them from the battlefield.

    Limbaugh doesn’t care about Christians in Congo who have been massacred in their millions, by death squads funded by mining companies from USA and Israel. The LRA clear people from land so the mining can begin, if Congo had a large Muslim population they’d blame Muslims and al Qaeda. Uganda is a puppet state the British fund the Ugandan elite. Go to hell Limbaugh maybe you can replace the limbs of those children

  • Reynardine

    What does Rush care about all the children Joseph Kony and his retinue enslaved, raped, disfigured, crippled, or forced into murder or prostitution anyway? They’re nothing but pickaninnies.

    “Good god, who even pays attention to this nut?”

    20 million Americans, apparently.

  • khushboo

    This hater will say anything controversial just to get ratings and make the right wing extremists happy! I’m glad that he now finally lost several sponsors not for being Isloamophobic mind you cuz that doesn’t matter much to people but for being a sexist pig!

    Allah warns us of people like Limbaugh in the Qur’an:

    2:10 In their hearts is disease, so Allah has increased their disease; and for them is a painful punishment because they [habitually] used to lie.

    2:11 And when it is said to them, “Do not cause corruption on the earth,” they say, “We are but reformers.”

    2:12 Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not.

    2:15 [But] Allah mocks them and prolongs them in their transgression [while] they wander blindly.

    2:16 Those are the ones who have purchased error [in exchange] for guidance, so their transaction has brought no profit, nor were they guided.

    2:17 Their example is that of one who kindled a fire, but when it illuminated what was around him, Allah took away their light and left them in darkness [so] they could not see.

    2:18 Deaf, dumb and blind – so they will not return [to the right path].

    (All of these ayat are from the Sahih International translation. See: http://quran.com/2)

    > Rush Limbaugh is an ignorant idiot who opens his mouth before researching things

    @Ahmed

    Researching? I doubt he even thinks before opening his mouth.

  • Ahmed

    To be fair, he did say later on:

    Is that right? The Lord’s Resistance Army is being accused of really bad stuff? Child kidnapping, torture, murder, that kind of stuff? Well, we just found out about this today. We’re gonna do, of course, our due diligence research on it. But nevertheless we got a hundred troops being sent over there to fight these guys — and they claim to be Christians.

    And after that he never backed them again.

    This does show two things

    1) Rush Limbaugh is an ignorant idiot who opens his mouth before researching things
    2) Rush Limbaugh is a hypocrite, because once he found out these things, he did not apologise and call the LRA out for what they are.

    The Stupidity is Strong with this one

  • Aliyu

    Joseph Kony & the LRA along with “Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Atheist, Neo-Darwinian” & other terrorists (including State terrorists) should be a common foe to us collectively as the 99%.

    However, this appears to be foreign policy motivated 5th Gen warfare i.e the AFRICOM agenda to introduce western militaries into the region to scare of BRIC rivals e.g. China.
