Alex Jones says the government did it. The Worldnutdaily has blamed both North Korea and Iran. Tony Perkins blames sexual immorality. Glenn Beck says Al Qaeda did it and the government is covering it up. But Rush Limbaugh has found the real culprit: College professors.
Rush Limbaugh: Now, see, this is where I am ripe for getting in trouble. Why is it so strange to believe that young kids could be radicalized in America? You got former bombers as professors in New York and Chicago. You have radical leftist professors who think this country’s guilty, teaching kids every day about what’s wrong with this country, about how unfair this country’s been, how unjust, how immoral this country is since its founding. What in the world do we think elite education is in this country? When you have a study of High School textbooks, nine different textbooks, the longest reference to Abraham Lincoln is one paragraph, but all kinds of references to the horrors of slavery and evil Republican presidents, how great Bill Clinton is.
How did Obama become what he is? Who taught Obama that America is so wrong? Who raised Obama to believe that America needs to be radically transformed? Well, we don’t know that they were taught conflict resolution. The odds are they might have been but they probably laughed all the way through that class. Can you imagine these guys in a conflict resolution 101 course? ‘Now, you are not supposed to resolve differences with violence. You are to find your combatant and talk about it and find wonderful things you have in common.’
You know who I think is behind it? Rush Limbaugh. I mean, it gives him a whole new subject to blather idiotically about. It’s as good a theory as any, right?
