^ Doubly bizarre since, if anything, the one regional actor who is suspected of having supplied the LRA in the past is "the Muslims in Sudan" whom Rush claims they're fighting (i.e. the Khartoum government, to whom the LRA might in theory be useful both for destabilizing South Sudan and for giving Uganda a poke in the eye).

I'm kind of surprised Limbaugh wasn't more familiar with what sort of group they are honestly, they've been one of the most notorious militias in the world for 25 years now.

Rush Limbaugh is a revolting human being in addition to being a true terrorist sympathizer. Shame on him and on his followers.

Video: Lord's Resistance Army Survivor Responds to Rush Limbaugh - Max Fisher - International - The Atlantic

Quote:
Evelyn Apoko is 22 years old, but she was only a child when the Lord's Resistance Army came into her home late one night and dragged her out into the jungle. The LRA, a bizarre and violent cult that emerged out of Uganda's 1986 civil war, enslaved Evelyn as they had the 66,000 children that came before and after her.

Most children who are abducted by the LRA are forced to either fight, aid in fighting, or serve as concubines. Evelyn does not say what happened during her years of enslavement with the LRA, but, one day, a bomb went off near her during one of the battles that are a regular part of the group's life. She attempted to protect an infant that was with the group, in the process exposing her face to the blast, which disfigured her. Denied medical care and fearing that she would be killed for her unattractive appearance, Evelyn escaped, miraculously making it through the jungle on foot and alone.

...

This morning, Evelyn recorded a video responding to comments by Rush Limbaugh, who criticized President Obama's decision to send 100 U.S. troops to aid governments fighting the LRA. In a segment titled "Obama Invades Uganda, Targets Christians," Limbaugh defended the group. "They are fighting the Muslims in Sudan. And Obama has sent troops, United States troops, to remove them from the battlefield, which means kill them. So that's a new war, a hundred troops to wipe out Christians in Sudan, Uganda," he said, going on to praise the group's stated objective "To remove dictatorship and stop the oppression of our people."

Limbaugh's comments attracted immediate controversy in the U.S. and, apparently, in Africa as well.

"My heart breaks when I hear your message about the LRA. I experienced first-hand the pain and hatred of humanity in the LRA," Evelyn says into the camera. "I have witnessed the spirit of Joseph Kony and it is not from God. Abducting young people from their home and forcing them to become something that is not meant to be."

remember, Rush's job is to blast Obama at all costs ... right up until the point where Obama loses the election.

Obama has to win in 2012, because Rush makes more money with a socialist Kenyan bent on destroying America is in the White House.

His job is to divide and incite hate and then blame Obama for the divide. And his audience so far has fallen for it.

Will this have his audience questioning his information? Seriously doubt it, they aren't particularly interested in the facts.
