On his radio show, Rush Limbaugh compared Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to Trayvon Martin, asserting that both have been treated similarly by the media.
He claims that in both cases the media painted light, innocent portraits of “bad people.”
“You notice also that the news media are doing to Dzhokhar what they did to Trayvon Martin,” Limbaugh began. “They’re regularly showing a photo of Dzhokhar that was taken when he was about 14.”
He said that the photo portrayed Tsarnaev as “soft, angelic, nice little boy, harmless… cute big lovable eyes. Not at all what he looks like today, but the news media seem to be making him look like an innocent little angel.” He ripped reporters for referring to the suspect as “a kid.”
“This is how this stuff ends up getting bastardized,” Limbaugh said. “This is how we end up… not thinking ill of bad people.”
Conservative talking heads will use any excuse to beat up on the character of the late Trayvon Martin.
