Rush Limbaugh: Double standard — #IStandWithAhmed vs. Pop Tart “guns”

Twitter was buzzing with the hashtag #IStandWithAhmed, after a 14-year-old Muslim student was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school that looked like a suitcase bomb.

Obama quickly joined in, inviting the boy to the White House. Limbaugh pointed out the double standard at play:

“Kindergarteners have been sent home for using their hands to pretend to be firing a gun. A 13-year-old with a toy AK-47 has been shot and killed by the cops, and a 10-year-old boy was suspended for pointing a finger like a gun.”

But the president didn’t rush to defend any of them, because there wasn’t an “Islamophobia” angle to exploit:

“Obama gets to bring him to the White House, make a star out of him, make Obama’s star shine even brighter. And once again, the bottom line: Characterize the United States as a racist and bigoted country.”
