Rush Limbaugh Compares Dzhokhar Tsarnaev To Trayvon Martin

2:08 pm - 04/23/2013
Rush Limbaugh compared Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, to Trayvon Martin on Tuesday.

Martin was an unarmed teenager who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman last year. On Tuesday, Limbaugh drew parallels between Martin and Tsarnaev, who is suspected of conspiring with his brother and setting off two explosions that killed three people and injured more than a hundred others at the Boston Marathon.

"You notice also that the news media are doing to Dzhokhar what they did to Trayvon Martin," Limbaugh began. "They're regularly showing a photo of Dzhokhar that was taken when he was about 14."

He said that the photo portrayed Tsarnaev as "soft, angelic, nice little boy, harmless... cute big lovable eyes. Not at all what he looks like today, but the news media seem to be making him look like an innocent little angel." He ripped reporters for referring to the suspect as "a kid."

"This is how this stuff ends up getting bastardized," Limbaugh said. "This is how we end up... not thinking ill of bad people."

Tsarnaev was the subject of a massive manhunt that shut down the Boston area on Friday. His capture on Friday night led the streets of Watertown to erupt in cheers. He has been charged with use of a weapon of mass destruction and malicious destruction of property resulting in a death.

Meanwhile, Martin's tragic death last February was mourned across the country. His killing — and the local police's botched handling of the case — sparked national outrage, and the slain teenager was widely seen as a victim of racial profiling and a hate crime.

At the time, Limbaugh criticized the response to Martin's death, claiming that it was "doing more harm to the black community than anything else out there right now." He alleged that people — including President Obama, who had spoken out about the tragedy — were using Martin's death as an "opportunity" to get ahead politically.

I just hope I'm alive when Limbaugh dies. I hope so so very much.

I will dance a merry little jig when he finally shuffles his ass off this mortal coil.

Rusty said something rude, offensive or insensitive in order to get some media attention? It must be any day of the week he's blathering on the radio.

This is how we end up... not thinking ill of bad people.

first of all, plenty of racists have said more than enough vile shit about trayvon martin.

second of all, plenty of folks are thinking a variety of both legitimate and ignorant negative things about dzhokhar tsarnaev.

last but not least, don't worry, rush, when your apologists and friends run with that "don't speak/think ill of the dead" nonsense as soon as you die, plenty of us will be sitting here thinking beyond ill of you.

Clearly, nobody could think anything bad about that cute little lad based on anything other than his race!

second of all, plenty of folks are thinking a variety of both legitimate and ignorant negative things about dzhokhar tsarnaev.

Well, we need to understand his point of view. The Boston Marathon is a pretty sinful event -- why I hear that the people didn't get down and pray five times a day to Allah while they were running it. The Tsarnaev brothers were merely making sure that some people got down, and many were praying. Many didn't ever get up again, which is ok because they were just infidels.

last but not least, don't worry, rush, when your apologists and friends run with that "don't speak/think ill of the dead" nonsense as soon as you die, plenty of us will be sitting here thinking beyond ill of you.

Because it's perfectly appropriate and reasonable to wish death to those guilty of verbal political dissent. Dissenters must die!

There must be some kind of "asshole quota" that everybody neglects to mention.

There's this tiny, naive slither of me clinging to the hope that people can't be that vile and stupid.

What was Trayvon Martin's crime, other than being black?

Oh, wait-- for Limbaugh, that IS a crime. It's the gateway to becoming a thug.

What was Trayvon Martin's crime, other than being black?

Assault, battery, the infliction of grievous bodily harm, and possibly attempted murder?

But aside from that, what was Trayvon Martin's crime, other than being black?

Nothing!

Also, what have the Romans ever done for us?
