Right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh said Friday on his show that the horrific attack on two mosques in New Zealand that left 49 people dead was probably a false flag attack to smear conservatives.
Referring to the manifesto posted online by the suspected Christchurch terrorist, Limbaugh commented:
“The terrorist had published a manifesto and the manifesto includes the claim from the terrorist shooter that he’s not a conservative, that he’s not a Christian. He identifies as an eco-fascist, and he adds that he disagrees with Trump on politics.”
Limbaugh conveniently forgot to mention that the shooter also claimed he had been inspired by Trump, hailing him as “a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.”
Next, Limbaugh tried to make it sound like the shooting in New Zealand was really an attack on Donald Trump:
“In addition to all of the emotion you have over the sheer shock, terror, and horror of it all, then you realize you’re going to face a whole day of the politicization of it. You realize you’re going to face a whole day of Donald Trump being blamed for it, or you being blamed for it, or things you believe in being blamed for it.”
Later in the segment, Limbaugh slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for daring to call for action on gun control and then elaborated on his false flag conspiracy theory:
“There’s an ongoing theory that the shooter himself may, in fact, be a leftist who writes the manifesto and then goes out and performs the deed purposely to smear his political enemies, knowing he’s going to get shot in the process. You know you just can’t — you can’t immediately discount this. The left is this insane, they are this crazy. And then if that’s exactly what the guy is trying to do then he’s hit a home run, because right there on Fox News: ‘Shooter is an admitted white nationalist who hates immigrants.'”
The left is insane, Rush? Have you looked in the mirror lately?
