Limbaugh on Obama: "[H]e loathes America. He blames America. America's responsible for all that's wrong in the world"

››› ››› KIRSTIN ELLISON

On the July 21 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh claimed that Sen. Barack Obama "is not a great thinker" but rather a "believer" and asserted that Obama has been "indoctrinated at his schools" to believe "that the United States is at root responsible for the way we are treated and seen by those who hate us." Limbaugh added: "It's a form of self-loathing, ladies and gentlemen -- not of himself, of course, 'cause he's the messiah -- but in the aggregate self-loathing of nation, the kind of self-loathing of America that the left here and in Europe embraces. And that's why they love Obama -- because he loathes America. He blames America. America's responsible for all that's wrong in the world."

From the July 21 broadcast of Premiere Radio Network's The Rush Limbaugh Show:

LIMBAUGH: And this Obama thing is a pure unadulterated sideshow. Obama is not a great thinker; he's a believer. He has been inoculated -- indoctrinated at his schools, and he's believed what he has been told there. And among those beliefs is that the United States is fundamentally a force for provocation in the world, and that the United States is at root responsible for the way we are treated and seen by those who hate us. This is what he believes. He's not a thinker.

It's a form of self-loathing, ladies and gentlemen -- not of himself, of course, 'cause he's the messiah -- but in the aggregate self-loathing of nation, the kind of self-loathing of America that the left here and in Europe embraces. And that's why they love Obama -- because he loathes America. He blames America. America's responsible for all that's wrong in the world. If we just did somebody in touch who has compassion, sensitivity, the rest of the world will miraculously love us. There will be no more evil.
