Rush Limbaugh is being roundly criticized for suggesting that the oil spill is the result of environmental terrorists.

But Rush has arrived at a very different culprit. Here, via WWLTV in Louisiana, is the big guy’s theory as aired on his Thursday show. We’d advise you put on a tinfoil hat before reading it, just to get into the spirit of things.

I want to get back to the timing of the blowing up, the explosion out there in the Gulf of Mexico of this oil rig. Since they’re sending SWAT teams down there now this changes the whole perspective of this. Now, lest we forget, ladies and gentlemen, the carbon tax bill, cap and trade that was scheduled to be announced on Earth Day. I remember that. And then it was postponed for a couple of days later after Earth Day, and then of course immigration has now moved in front of it.

But this bill, the cap-and-trade bill, was strongly criticized by hardcore environmentalist wackos because it supposedly allowed more offshore drilling and nuclear plants, nuclear plant investment. So, since they’re sending SWAT teams down there, folks, since they’re sending SWAT teams to inspect the other rigs, what better way to head off more oil drilling, nuclear plants, than by blowing up a rig? I’m just noting the timing here.


I like to mock wingnutism as much as the next guy but I think Rush has a point here. No, I don’t think it was enviro-terrorism. However, I don’t think that its insane to suspect that it was enviro-terrorism.
