Rush: Obama is Arab

CREDIT:

It’s true, of course, that Barack Obama isn’t an African-American in the traditional sense. Why this makes Rush Limbaugh think he’s Arab I couldn’t quite say:

On the September 22 broadcast of his syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh baselessly claimed that Sen. Barack Obama is “not black,” and went on to ask: “Do you know he has not one shred of African-American blood?” Limbaugh continued: “He’s Arab. You know, he’s from Africa. He’s from Arab parts of Africa. … [H]e’s not African-American. The last thing that he is is African-American.”

Obama’s father was, for the record, from Kenya which is not an Arab part of Africa.
