Limbaugh Thinks Bombers Influenced by Boston's 'Liberal Elite Intellectual Thought'

On his Tuesday radio show, Rush Limbaugh agreed with a caller that Boston's "liberal elite intellectual thought" influenced Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev into bombing the Boston Marathon. Listen to the clip, courtesy of Media Matters:

CALLER:  Earlier you talked about with where these guys come from.  The definition of difference between a liberal and a conservative is the liberal, when sharing things about a great country, people from another country, will point out that he recognizes what's wrong with it, whereas a conservative will point out what is great about it.  Well, that's what happens when these young guys live in this area when is a liberal hotbed, all they hear all their lives even from people who are supposed to love this country is what a horrible place it is and what's wrong with it, so it's no wonder they turn out to be, as you call it, you know, become radicalized by our own nation.

LIMBAUGH:  They do. They hang around people that don't like America, they get inspired or influenced by it somehow, and it's no wonder.  Look, folks, Boston's a hubbub of liberal elite intellectual thought, all the universities there.  And if you end up around the wrong people long enough and you're young enough and impressionable enough, then that kind of thing can happen.  It is an interesting point about the difference between liberals and conservatives.  Liberals will tell you what's wrong with the country from the founding.  Conservatives will say what's wrong with the country because of liberals, while telling you what's great about the country -- if the liberals would move out of the way.
