Rush Limbaugh: Left uses massacre to promote gun agenda

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Tx4obama (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: USA Today

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh says attempts to blame the Sandy Hook school massacre on lax gun laws reflect a political agenda by the "media, Democrats and leftists" to attack "Republicans, conservatives or conservative values."

He noted that many in the media and political world did not want to acknowledge that many mass killings were carried out with knives or dynamite, and not by firearms.

"But you see, there's a political agenda here," said on his radio show Monday. "And when this event happened, I knew that two things were happening immediately. Aside from everything that we were being told about it being wrong, the media, Democrats and leftists were doing everything they could to find a way to blame this on their political opponents. Not just talk radio. Not just Fox News. But on Republicans, conservatives, or conservative values."

17. Bingo.

In addition to Rush, Huckabee and AFA spokespersons are using the tragedy to promote religion in the schools ("It happened because they didn't let God into the schools!")

3. Damn right; the agenda is to enact measures to try to prevent this from happening again

While our "political opponents" are the ones shrugging in indifference.

5. So how does this stack up to the knive attack in China on the same day?

How many of the 17 plus kids that were attacked die in the knife attack? Zero.
Why? Because it's a lot easier to kill with a gun. period.

6. Aw, Rush, you're behind the times. More people listen to Infowars than you now.

You're just trying to stay relevant and in control of the monster you unleashed. They've gone exactly where you wanted them to go, so just STHU.

10. Truth be told, Rush

The left attack Republicans, conservatives and conservative values because they're all uttering and completely wrong, as evidenced by Sandy Hook. And Wall Street banksters, and oil companies and multi-national corporations and agribusiness and a $600 Billion/year Defense budget and...

16. "many mass killings were carried out with knives or dynamite"

Perhaps this is why there are restrictions on the purchase of dynamite?

19. If It Were Up To Me

As everybody lights their hair on fire and runs around trying to find out what caused the Sandy Hook attack (as well as similar and ever-more-frequent mass murders) I find that singer/songwriter Chery Wheeler's song If It Were Up To Me, written after Columbine, says everything that needs to be said. You can see the lyric at The Left Bank.
