Rush Limbaugh: What if shooter were named Muhammad?

With waves of media stories suggesting possible causes for the Tucson, Ariz., shooting ranging from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to hateful speech on talk radio and the Internet, Rush Limbaugh is now posing a new question.

“Just ask yourself this. If the shooter had been a 22-year-old named Muhammad, would we be hearing that Muslim talk radio and the Muslim Internet blamed for it?” the top-rated host asked today. “No, we’d have been told that we can’t blame Muslims for the action of one kook.”

Limbaugh spent all three hours of his program today focusing on coverage of the weekend massacre that left Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., in critical condition and six others dead.

Limbaugh called attempts by many on the left to make the shooter seem influenced by those on the political right “sick.”

“In continuing this template and narrative that the tea party and Sarah Palin, that talk radio and Fox News, are inspiring violence, they forget that, in the process of so doing, they are attacking what is now a majority of America,” Limbaugh said. “They are accusing a majority of Americans of being accomplices to murder. … It’s all just surreal. These people are making abject fools of themselves in open, public now.”

And now… the rest of the story. …..
