RUSH LIMBAUGH: Clinton wouldn’t label Boko Haram a terrorist group because they look like African Americans

Today on his radio show, Rush Limbaugh said that the reason Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. didn’t label Boko Haram as a foreign terrorist organization is because they are black and look like African Americans.


How many people do you think know that this terror group, Boko Haram, has been attacking Christians since 2009? The jihad aspect of Boko Haram is almost completely ignored by the White House and the media, and I can tell you why. I just saw why.

There’s video that’s been released of about half of the kidnapped girls who have been converted to Islam. The other 150 there’s been no mention of. The Boko Haram leader….who performed on the video is a good looking guy. This is why Mrs. Clinton wouldn’t call this group a terrorist group. Because they’re black. This is how surface-conscience the left is.

We cannot call people what they are…in this case a jihadist, anti-Christian terror group aligned with al Qaeda. We can’t call them terrorist because they look like African Americans. And we just can’t go there.

Nobody will ever convince me that that’s why they didn’t call this group a terror group. Just can’t do it. Just can’t go there. Because the left doesn’t go any deeper than skin when identifying people. Everything is racial politics, identity politics, whatever. And if you’ve got group of terrorists who are particularly from a foreign country — not domestic — ‘then they’re just black and we can’t call them a terrorist group. No no no no no no. That will not help us domestically politically.’

So this group escapes any scrutiny. They don’t get the proper treatment from this country, foreign policy wise, and in effect they’re allow to just behave without any stops.
