Rush Limbaugh is right, again! This time, he is agreeing with former Vice President Dick Cheney’s rumored comments about President Barack Obama acting in ways which have supported the Muslim Brotherhood’s efforts to gain power throughout the Middle East.
Limbaugh was discussing an account reported in The Daily Beast:
According to Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana, Cheney said Obama “has actually done things that have supported the Muslim Brotherhood.” The former vice president then went on to name the Muslim Brotherhood as “the beginning of all the Islamist groups that we’re dealing with now like Hamas and ISIS.”
In Fleming’s account, Cheney said that by “facilitating the Muslim Brotherhood…our policies have been exactly opposite to where they should be.”
Fleming’s description of the meeting was echoed by Rep. Peter King of New York, who said that while Cheney didn’t criticize “the Rand Paul types” in the GOP—a group that King often derides—he did call for “comprehensive” action that is even more aggressive than what Obama has in mind.
As el Rushbo responded:
[Obama] did. That’s not conjecture. It’s not theory. He did! The Arab Spring. We got rid of Mubarak in Egypt. We empowered the Muslim Brotherhood. What were we told? They’re the peaceful Islamists. The Brotherhood is the moderates. The Brotherhood we can deal with. The Brotherhood, yeah.
Limbaugh also noted that the Muslim Brotherhood is related to Hamas and Hezbollah, which are both “very close” to the Islamic State (ISIS). Please leave a comment if you agree with Dick Cheney and Rush Limbaugh: Barack Obama should not empower global Islamic terrorist organizations!
