Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh wondered why people the on the left were happy that President Obama is “helping Iran with two things that leftists said would destroy the planet: nuclear power plants and nuclear weapons” on Thursday.
“Leftists all of a sudden now are applauding and celebrating a brand-new nation being welcomed into the nuclear fold. And of all nations, it’s Iran. When did this transformation happen? I ask” he said.
Rush continued, “We have a country that’s the state sponsor of terrorism, acknowledged to be. We have a country that is a huge producer of oil, which the left supposedly detests, and hates, and reviles, and despises ’cause it’s polluting and it’s ugly, and it’s what the Koch brothers do, ‘ooh, yuk, oil, no blood for oil, all that.’ Here’s a country that executes homosexuals, stones to death women who dare to speak up, dare to complain about being raped. If a woman in Iran gets raped and complains about it, they punish her. A country that produces oil and threatens innocent people the world over with state-sponsored terrorism, and now the President of the United States is about to enable them getting a nuclear weapon, and leftists sit idly by?”
He concluded that Obama was “helping Iran with two things that leftists said would destroy the planet: nuclear power plants and nuclear weapons, and the third thing, oil.”
