Obama created crimes with gunrunning
Radio giant Rush Limbaugh is coming down hard on the Obama
administration’s “Fast and Furious” operation today, calling it
“liberalism on parade” in a misguided attempt to promote stricter gun
control in America.
“The whole point of Fast and Furious was to create mayhem in Mexico
among drug cartels with American-made weapons easily procured so that
you and I would stand up in outrage and demand tighter gun laws,”
Limbaugh said.“It was deceitful. It was sneaky. It was going against the will of
the American people. It was liberalism on parade. It’s who these people
are. They want tighter gun laws.”
The White House today tried to undercut a congressional investigation
of the scandal in which the Department of Justice allowed guns to be
sold and delivered to Mexican drug cartels by announcing tens of
thousands of documents were covered by executive privilege.
This afternoon, a House panel voted to place Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his failure to comply with a subpoena for the documents, defying Obama’s assertion of executive privilege.
All 23 Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform
Committee voted for the contempt resolution, while all 17 Democrats
voted against it.
Limbaugh explained Obama and his officials were actually creating crimes.
“There’s no other way to characterize this,” Limbaugh said. “They
created, they manufactured crime. They enabled crimes. They saw to it
that American guns ended up in Mexican drug cartel hands. And, of
course, those people get the guns, they use them. When, in fact, it
probably was difficult for the drug cartels to get the guns. It probably
was not easy for the drug cartels to get the guns. Certainly not
walking into gun stores in Phoenix and elsewhere, then crossing the
border.”“It would be no different than if they wanted to ban airplanes, to
engineer a bunch of crashes,” he continued, providing an analogy. “If
this bunch wanted all airplanes grounded, [they] sabotage a bunch so
they crash, and the people [of] the country demand that all airplanes be
grounded. They wanted these guns that were used in these crimes to
come from America. They made it easy for the drug cartels to get
Limbaugh said Obama is seeking an assault-weapons ban, but he
resorted to the “Fast and Furious” tactic because he could not get a ban
through the regular political process.
“It’s kind of like if you’re NBC and you want to illustrate that certain trucks are dangerous,” he explained, referring to real-life 1992 shenanigans performed by NBC’s “Dateline” program and its reporter Michelle Gillen.
“You put an explosive in a gas tank, and then you turn on the truck
and remotely drive it down the road. Then you trigger the explosive
remotely, the truck blows up, and you claim the truck’s dangerous. Then
you get the truck off the road. But it’s only dangerous ’cause you at
NBC blew it up. NBC did that for a TV show.”
The Fast and Furious operation led to the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
