Limbaugh: The Media Didn’t Make Trump, and They Can’t Destroy Him

The Washington media have overestimated their power since Reagan won landslides despite their disapproval.

From the Washington Examiner:

The media will fail to destroy President Trump because he is not a typical Republican, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Sunday.

“The media did not make Donald Trump, and they can’t destroy him,” Limbaugh told “Fox News Sunday.”

Limbaugh claimed the media have a “blueprint for destroying” Republicans they disagree with, but they won’t take Trump down.

“He doesn’t fit that mold. They’re trying to every day. It’s kind of comical to watch,” he said

Government Trying to Silence Private Citizen’s Speech

The Democratic Party, in its quest for money and politically correct purity, has reached a new low.

A private citizen made a statement that some would find offensive. Democrats in Congress are trying to put that citizen out of business.

The citizen in question often makes controversial statements. He draws calumny from his opponents. And that is exactly whom the Framers intended to protect by writing the First Amendment.

According to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Rush Limbaugh said this:

How many of you guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that ‘no’ means ‘yes’ if you know how to spot it?

That resulted in a letter Sunday from Sandra Fluke, written on behalf of the DCCC:

As a previous target of Limbaugh’s sexist attacks, take it from me: we need to stand together and call Rush out. The DCCC has a petition to tell advertisers to stop funding this repulsive commentary.

Here’s the petition.

Limbaugh petition

As you can see, as of this morning, the campaign had exceeded its goal of 300,000 signatures.

The DCCC is no ordinary political group. It is, by its own telling “the official campaign arm of the Democrats in the House of Representatives.” It’s chaired by a Congressman, Rep. Steve Israel of New York, and other members of Congress head up its key branches.

I don’t care what you think about what Rush said. I don’t care what Sandra Fluke says about it – she has a right to her opinion.

What I care about is that the DCCC, your government, is trying to put Rush out of business because of something he said.

The subversion of our country and its principles to the agenda of the Democratic Party and its demands for political correctness is far more of a danger than anything Rush Limbaugh can come up with.

Led by President Obama, who writes his own laws out of the Oval Office, the government is getting increasingly habituated to capricious actions that ignore the law and the Constitution because of the idea, which is everything our Founders fought against, that the views of individual rulers can be so important and so “obviously correct” that they can be unilaterally imposed on the nation.

This is the birthplace of tyranny. It is the rationale of the Bolsheviks. Here, in our country.

Whatever we once understood about civics is being forgotten. Be afraid for your children’s future.

Rush: Obama Will Never be Impeached

Some conservatives are pushing for it, either because they think its deserved or because they know it provides a thrill up everyone’s leg. But Rush Limbaugh said Thursday that it will never happen: President Obama is just not going to be impeached.

There isn’t going to be any impeachment because there isn’t any political will. Even if you had a slam dunk legal case for it, you’re never going to succeed in impeaching the president unless there’s the political will for it,” Limbaugh said on his radio show Thursday in a segment noted by Buzzfeed.

That would require Obama’s approval numbers in the 20’s. And even then I’m not so sure that the people of this country would ever support removing the first black president. It’s just think – it’s never going to happen.

The bar for impeaching a president and dragging the country through such an event is properly high. Despite Obama’s abuse of his executive power, I don’t think impeachment is warranted at this point.

And I agree with Rush, that Obama’s race adds more height to the bar, politically at least, especially since his defenders appear increasingly fond of suggesting his opponents are animated by racism. An impeachment trial could well lead to race riots, and many Republicans, even if there was a thoroughly legitimate case for impeaching Obama, would be cowed.

H/T Buzzfeed.

Rush Limbaugh Turns 25

Well, you know what I mean. Rush celebrated his 25th anniversary on the air yesterday. I thought I’d provide you a quote from his show Thursday which pretty much sums up what he’s be fighting against all these year. Let me try it this way. For 25 years I’ve been trying to explain liberalism to… Continue Reading
