“What Message Does This Send? US Radio Host, Rush Limbaugh, Takes on #BringBackOurGirls Campaign
One of America’s top radio hosts, the conservative Rush Limbaugh slammed the Twitter hashtag campaign, #BringBackOurGirls, which is drawing attention to the kidnappings of schoolgirls in Nigeria. He described it as “pathetic.”
Limbaugh says he is not impressed with the Twitter campaign, as America could do more.
“I just think this is pathetic. I’m just stunned. We got 300 Nigerian girls kidnapped by an Al Qaeda group, and nobody cared or talked about it for a while, Hillary [Clinton] wouldn’t call ‘em a terror group. Now all of a sudden, for some reason, we’re on a big push to get ‘em back and this is how… ?” Limbaugh said Thursday on his radio program, according to a transcript.
On the show, he discussed the tweet by first lady Michelle Obama on Wednesday as she took part in the Twitter campaign. He questioned its effectiveness.
“The sad thing here is that the low-information crowd that’s puddling around out there on Twitter is gonna think we’re actually doing something about it. Is that not pathetic? What the hell message does that send” he said.
“I want to ask you, what message does this send? And then I want to ask you, is the United States really this powerless? And then if you answer yes, we are really this powerless, then isn’t Obama to blame?” Limbaugh said.
