Conservative Responses to Malaysian Crash

Reinforcing the notion that nothing is sacred and no person’s pain is above a few points in the battle of political rhetoric, some conservatives used the tragic death of 298 to drum up some support for their messages of hate. The lowlights …

Bryan Fisher
Tweeted, “Obama politicizes deaths of AIDS researchers on Malaysian plane. We know how to stop AIDS: persuade men not to have sex with men.” And then “In his remarks, President Obama politicized Malaysian airliner tragedy, used it to press the radical homosexual agenda.”

Rep. Peter King
Claims the crash shows a lack of leadership by Obama, like the neverending story, otherwise known as Benghazi.

Todd Starnes
Tweeted, “Yesterday Obama announces new sanctions against Russia. Today, jetliner crashes in Ukraine.”

Former Rep. Allen West
“Sadly, hundreds of Ukrainians and 298 souls on MH17 have paid the price for the weakness and abject cowardice of Obama’s ‘flexibility.’ And here in America we quibble over a lawsuit against this charlatan. The blood on Vladimir Putin’s hands was poured by Barack Obama who is indirectly responsible, accountable accountable [sic] and no different than Neville Chamberlain’s weakness in the face of the 20th Century maniacal dictator Adolf Hitler.”

And finally, Rush …
“It’s a Malaysian Airlines jet and can you — I’ve got the British Open on the top menu, monitor, I haven’t had CNN on all day, what do you bet they have broomed everything and are covering wall-to-wall the Malaysian Airlines flight shot down by a missile? This is, I mean, you talk about — I don’t want to appear to be callous here, folks, but you talk about an opportunity to abandon the bad Obama news at the border, and no, I’m not suggesting anything other than how the media operates.”
