It's really not that hard.

Obama Invades Uganda, Targets Christians - The Rush Limbaugh Show

But it's ok, Rush is the poor, poor victim of those mindless Obama drone libs and the sheepish lib media. He is not responsible for himself.
The Lib Media is not sheepish. It is the Shepard for the Leftist Flock, and the flock is a good flock. Timid, easily led, patient when fleeced and peaceful when led to the abattoir.

The Kony2012 campaign has its fair share of criticisms and I'm not a big fan of the group behind it. I for one really don't like the way they commercialized the horrors that have taken place in Uganda and Central Africa, they basically turned the whole thing into an internet fad for slacktivists on Facebook and almost a joke ultimately, not to mention the fact that only a small fraction of the donations they receive actually go to help folks over there; but, that's no excuse for Rush Limbaugh to frame the situation the way he did (Obama vs. Christians). He made those remarks before Kony2012 caught on fire.

Make no mistake though, Joseph Kony is a war criminal and the LRA isn't removed from the face of the Earth, and they have not answered for their crimes against humanity.

Oh I agree...Even said so in a thread that was started five months ago when Obama sent troops...

Yup...I did...

It shows a VERY uneven standard...

It looks like the stone throwers are objecting to the way a bad guy is the focus instead of the victims

Joseph Kony's victims aghast at 'white' campaign

Kony victims jeer 2012 film

Victims of warlord Joseph Kony question the motives behind the film Kony 2012 after a screening in northern Uganda.



It had been viewed more than 77million times around the world, but not by those who know Joseph Kony best: his victims in northern Uganda.

That changed when thousands flocked to watch Kony 2012, the video made by a US charity urging a grassroots campaign against the fugitive warlord that has gone viral.

Before sunset on Tuesday two metal rods were hammered into dry dirt and grass and a white sheet hoisted to create an open-air cinema in the mayor's gardens in the centre of Lira, 350kms north of the capital, Kampala. Word about the "premiere" spread on local radio, drawing a a very large crowd, including victims of Kony's atrocities, that grew over several hours. But some of the spectators did not like what they saw and the screening ended amid jeers and scuffles, with some angry viewers throwing stones.

"People were very angry about the film," said Victor Ochieng, director of a local charity, the African Youth Initiative Network (Ayinet), which arranged the show.

And yesterday Ochieng, whose own father and brother were abducted by Kony's Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), said: "Reacting to the film, there was a strong sense that the video was definitely not produced for an African audience, and that it was not sensitive enough to the victims.

"It was very hurtful for them and their families to see posters, bracelets and buttons, all looking like slick campaign ads of the person most responsible for their shattered lives. One young man who lost four brothers and one of his arms said afterwards: 'How can anybody expect me to wear a T-shirt with Kony's name on it?'."

He added: "For all the victims, the attempt to make Kony famous so as to prop up public support for his apprehension is laudable but the way this goal is pursued in the video is inappropriate and ignores their feelings

However that does nothing to prop up the idea that Limbaugh wasn't either really, really stupid or really really evil.

What?!?
Qadafi, bin Laden, the Al Qeda...you have no basis for that statement.
Why make it about Africa? Why not make it about what rush was trying to make it about about? Policy?
And rush and you are wrong. Obama policy has nothing to do with killing Christians. nice try tho

Well those Muslims don't count I guess.

Rush really needed to do some research before going on air. Commentary ought to be informed, intelligent commentary, especially with what they're paying him. His hundreds (Oh wait, millions? what are his real ratings?) of listeners might've gotten the wrong impression of the LRA.
