Rush Limbaugh: ‘I Can’t Tell the Difference’ Between Dems and Iran
Rush Limbaugh says he can’t tell the Democratic Party and Iran’s ruling regime apart.
Speaking with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, Limbaugh, reacting to an article in the Washington Free Beacon in which the Iranian government criticized the U.S.’s handling of race relations, said, “You know, sometimes, I mentioned this during the 2012 presidential campaign, I can’t tell the difference sometimes between the Iranian regime and the Democrat Party.
“I listened to that, he’s gone now, (but former Iranian president Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad running around talking about America sounded just like (Secretary of State) John Kerry talking about America. Ahmadinejad ripping into America sounded just like the way (Sen.) Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) does it.
“You couldn’t tell the difference between the Iranians and the Democrats, and now look. The Iranians accusing us, the United States, of inherent inhumane racism and demanding we do something about it,” Limbaugh staid.

The Free Beacon reported that the Iranian Foreign Ministry stated that America must “stop police brutality and racist and inhumane treatment of minorities and colored populations in the country.
“It is expected from the U.S. administration and judiciary to comply with their duty and take lawful and just actions in dealing with their citizens and stop the practice of racism and inhumane behavior,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said in the Iranian press.
“U.S. administration (must) show respect for human rights and set aside its politically-tainted view on the issue.
“The U.S. administration has continuously criticized other countries and made an instrumental use of human rights and adopted double-standard criteria in the last few decades, while it has ignored domestic situation at home,” the Free Beacon reported.
Limbaugh said on Fox, “These are the people that behave toward women according to Sharia law, which means the last thing you want to be in Iran is a woman. Just amazing. You can’t tell the difference.
“If you didn’t put an identifier before some of these phrases, you couldn’t tell the difference between an Iranian official and a member of the Democratic Party.”
