Skip to comments.Erik Rush’s Muslim Tweets After Bombings Lead to Death Threats

He only said what many clear-minded Americans likely think about our federal governments dangerously stupid Middle Eastern visa and immigration policies, but boy did it get the leftist, Islamophile drones riled up!
Author, WorldNetDaily (WND) columnist and national conservative commentator, Erik Rush, posted a comment on Twitter in the wake of the Boston bombings, and it led to a small firestorm that became a tsunami after he posted a second, purely sarcastic comment that really tweaked the Left!
As WNDs Chelsea Schilling reported on Tuesday evening:
After the bombing Monday, Rush tweeted, Everybody do the National Security Ankle Grabs! Lets bring Saudis in without screening them! Cmon!
Rushs comment was in response to early reports from United Press International that a 20-year-old Saudi Arabian national had been a potential suspect in the double bombings. The Boston police later said the man wasnt a suspect.
Rush told WND he received some hostile tweets following his initial speculation about the identity of the bomber.
This was speculation, which everyone is doing, Rush said. Thats when the tweets started: Youre blaming Muslims already? You scumbag!
After several of those, thats when I was like, Yeah, thats right, theyre evil. Kill em all.
And thats all they needed.
One of the drawbacks of the written word is that it can be difficult to impart sarcasm, because you cannot convey your tone of voice to go with what you write. Naturally, Mr. Rushs quip sent the Left into a frenzy of foaming outrage. Not that it would matter to them that he was being sarcastic, but leftists either could not or would not grasp the sarcasm dripping from his statement, "Yes, they're evil. Let's kill them all." In the context of what he had already written and the Lefts predictable reaction, I can easily detect his sarcasm, but thats just me. He was clearly not literally calling for the killing of Muslims, but that did not matter to the screeching freaks of the Left.
After that second tweet, Mr. Rush was deluged with vicious, sick e-mails, comments on Twitter and his website, death threats, and hacks that crashed his website. His home was even swatted by someone who posed as him and called 911 saying that there were men in his home firing AK-47 rifles. Fortunately, the first officer on the scene was a friend of Mr. Rushs, otherwise, that swatting incident could have been very bad news.
The leftist Right Wing Watch website had a brief report with the headline, Erik Rush: Kill All Muslims in Response to Boston Marathon Attack.
The Huffington Post called what Mr. Rush said a Muslim joke. Those tweets were not Muslim jokes. The first was clearly an expression of his frustration with our lax visa program which allows visitors from terror-sponsoring Muslim nations like Saudi Arabia, not to mention an open southern border through which Muslim terrorists can easily pass.
Neither was his second tweet a joke. It was a sarcastic response to the stupid outrage he was receiving from useful idiots who refuse to accept the fact that Muslims set off bombs and commit murderous attacks on a daily basis around the world. Because of their awful track record and history of hostile threats and attacks against America, it is reasonable to speculate that there is a good chance Muslims are behind the Boston bombings.
I dont give a rip if that offends anyone. Im sick of the suicidal, politically correct mentality that pervades our nations leftist media and governmental policies. Im sick of hearing lies defending Islam. Islam has nothing to do with peace. It is a perverse, backward militant-political ideology that promotes interminable war against much of the world. Islams tenets, its Shariah mandates, are utterly incompatible with the freedoms and foundations of the United States. Islam is about oppression, not freedom.
I know the Left is desperately hoping the Boston bombers are white right wing extremists (whatever that means, since according to Homeland Security, Im a right-wing extremist), but if the authorities nab a Muslim for this, we can bet that it will quickly be reported that he was a lone wolf, not affiliated with any larger Muslim terror group.
Returning to Erik Rush, Chelsea Schilling reported:
Rush said the local CBS affiliate covered the story and suggested he was trying to defend his tweet.
I didnt try to defend them, he said. They asked me, If you had it to do over again, would you? And I was like, Yeah, probably.
Despite all the media hoopla, Rush said the incident opened his eyes to the real enemy.
This really sort of sheds light on who were dealing with, and I dont just mean the Islamists, he said. I mean the people who are really willing to stand up for people who want to kill us versus American people. Of course, the stuff that Im getting is: Were coming to kill you!
Other than the practical concerns, like for safety, it furthers my resolve as far as whos the dirt bag and who isnt.
So the story is that because a guy said it was a Muslim who killed people Muslims are now threatening to kill him. Seem logical...
I have a feeling the Marathon bombing will hold something that when it comes to light will be the spark that will create a firestorm placing Obama actually himself in some degree responsible for the attack, its pure speculation but I have this nagging sensation that the unscheduled meeting was an emergency meeting to discuss what went wrong, why there wasn’t more death and carnage and above all why the bombers allowed themselves to be caught on camera so easily.
Basically a pow wow to change tactics for the next terrorist attempt, how to improve on it.
He didn’t even have to actually say “it was Muslims.” He just basically said, “how’s that Saudi visa program working out for you?” It doesn’t take much to get these hyper-sensitive leftists all lathered up.
And now they’re going to fold in the South with some person or persons from Mississippi.
Death threats are common in true islam. There’s a host of ayat’s that apply even today like 17:33. Just look at the Koran as a battle plan against the infidel. It’s WAR ready!!
According to GB, the Saudi suspect in the surveillance photos is connected to powerful families in Riyadh & is being “deported”.
“Spirited away to the safety of his muzzie homeland” would be more accurate, IMO.
