Rush Limbaugh says white supremacists and the KKK ‘are not the problem,’ warns of second civil war. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwrZTb9Tk
To say Rush Limbaugh is confused may be a bit of an exaggeration. To say he is an idiot , is not. But his listeners may be more stupid than he is , which is why they continue to tune into him every week even after he says one stupid thing after another , and believe everything he says is the gospel truth.
Last week , after the events in Charlottesville , Virginia , Donald Trump claimed the Nazi protesters were “very fine people” , basically tying both the neo-Nazi protesters , and the counter protesters together in a neat little bundle , Rush made an incredibly stupid claim on his radio show.
Rush is one of those conservatives who likes to revise history to suit their narrative : the Democratic party is the party of racism and bigotry , all conservatives are good , and can do no wrong , while all liberals , progressives , and Democrats are bad and can do nothing right.
On his radio show last week , after the events in Charlottesville Virginia , Rush made some laughably absurd statements. “Both of these groups ( the neo–Nazis and the anti–protesters ) are extreme leftists ,” he said. According to a World Nut Daily article ( the cesspool of the internet ) leftists demanded that Trump specifically denounce the white nationalists , because they’re trying to tie him to these racist groups.
Someone should remind Rush that no one is trying to associate Trump to racist groups. They voted for him. They support him. They have praised many of his actions and his words. David Duke tweeted that he was proud of Trump’s statement after the events in Charlottesville. Trump himself , has a history of racial animus toward minorities and other people of color. From housing discrimination of prospective minority tenants in the nineteen sixties , embracing birtherism , his willingness to pardon sheriff Joe Arpaio , another racist birther , to his so-called not a Muslim ban , affording Christians special consideration. And now , claiming white nationalists and neo-Nazis are “nice people.” So , Rush is full of shit.
Rush continues : “This is about two hate groups that have no association with Donald Trump or the Republican party , but the media is doing everything it can to associate the Nazis and the skinheads and the white nationalists with not just Trump , but with the Republican party.”
Once again Rush is full of shit . They ( the white nationalists ) have everything to do with Trump! These are the people who voted for him! They support him! How could Rush not know this?! Has all the Oxycontin he’s taken over the years , fried his brain? The Republican party has always been associated with racists groups. Racist groups are highly conservative. The Council Of Conservative Citizens , the KKK , and the like. The media doesn’t have to associate any of these groups to the Republican party. These groups have been associated with the Republican party for decades.
Rush continues : “Both of these groups are extreme leftists. The Nazis are not to the right of anything and the white nationalists are not to the right of anything. All of these groups are to the left of center.” He was either lying when he said this , or he really is stupid and believes what he’s saying. I believe he’s one of the stupidest conservatives in the media , and doesn’t know much about history. So , by Rush’s logic , Hitler must have been a liberal , and the white nationalists are also liberals. Rush isn’t the only conservative Republican who believes this and has made this claim. Bryan Fisher of AFA has also made this absurd claim. By denying that white nationalists and Nazis have anything to do with far right on the political spectrum , they can blame all the violence on liberals and progressives , excluding themselves of any responsibility. So , Rush wants us to be afraid of those violent Black Lives Matter people and their liberal cohorts who are running over white people and shooting them , because they want to start a race war like Obama did , but never got around to.
