Conservatives love Rush Limbaugh, partially for his no nonsense attitude, and partially because he has a knack for being right when it comes to politics. One of his first books was even called, “See, I Told You So.”
Limbaugh isn’t modest, either. Last week on his radio show, he decided to let the world know that Hillary Clinton admitted that he’s been right all along. During the show, which aired on October 10, Limbaugh referenced an interview which was recently conducted by CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour. Amanpour had interviewed Clinton, and during the conversation, the journalist asked about civility in politics today.
Clinton gave just about the worst answer possible.
She answered, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”
Limbaugh was right there to attack.
“(Hillary) pretty much admitted everything I have been trying to warn people of about the American left and the Democrat Party!” Limbaugh started off. “She went out and in her best Maxine Waters impersonation. She was encouraging people to be uncivil, and she was saying that it was justified being uncivil, given the opposition, the Republicans.”
The premise that Democrats have only been paying lip-service to “civility” and are actually bullies addicted to power is something that Limbaugh has been hammering for some time — and he used the Clinton interview to shine a light on the latest example.
“(I)f they win the House, then they can go back to being civil. If they win the Senate, then they can return to civility,” Limbaugh continued. “I mean, they’re making the case, they’re proving the point .… In all of this crazy, deranged, unhinged behavior of left-wing activists, I haven’t heard one elected Democrat denounce it. I haven’t heard one elected Democrat attempt to distance himself or herself or the party from it.”
Limbaugh continued, “They are all encouraging it. My point is: This is who they all are — and with Hillary Clinton now advocating this incivility. What did I tell you yesterday? We’re not in a battle of ideas anymore. We’re not in an argument over ideas. They don’t … They’re not even looking at any of this as about ideas.”
The left has seemingly become radicalized.
“They see America today as flawed and illegitimate and, therefore, in need of a new set of defining values that will serve to unify the people who want to be part of America,” Rush explained. “Not anything to do with our founding. Not the Constitution. Not the Declaration. That’s out the window ’cause all that’s tainted. All of that was written by a bunch of privileged white guys who were setting up a system for themselves and their families and their descendants.”
