Limbaugh: Are we really this powerless?

9 May, 2014

Limbaugh criticizes the Twitter campaign in response to the Nigerian Kidnappings:

I just think this is pathetic.  I’m just stunned.  We got 300 Nigerian girls kidnapped by an Al-Qaeda group, and nobody cared or talked about it for a while. Hillary wouldn’t call ’em a terror group.  Now, all of a sudden, for some reason, we’re on a big push to get ’em back and this is how…? 

But are we really this powerless?  The correct way to look at this is the audience that will see it — the Twitter, low-information universe — will say, “Oh, Mrs. Obama! At least they care, and at least they’re trying to do something.”  If somebody — sadly, unfortunately — had a family member kidnapped, this is might be what they would do, right They’d go to Twitter and say, “Bring back my daughter.”  I find it just sad.  I mean, this is pathetic, the message this sends to people around the world.
