Suddenly Rush Limbaugh doubts two different outlooks can exist in the same country while ignoring that he has stoked the fires of hate and division for decades. In the end stages of lung cancer, not only does Rush argue this dishonest point, but he also argues for secession. We just can't all get along anymore.
Here's where it begins (transcript courtesy of Media Matters):
For 240 years or so we've had plenty in common with one another, or at least we DID until the likes of Rush Limbaugh came along and began pointing fingers at "The Other." Then suddenly it's time to secede because God knows we couldn't get along with New Yorkers. Even New Yorkers like this?
At any rate, Rush goes on to pronounce the idea of differing views peacefully co-existing as dead.
And again, the King of Discord does not give himself any credit for the Great Divide. It's as though he didn't spend all of the decades of his on-air life making sure everyone who listened to him turned into a hater, someone who could not bear to be in the same room with The Other.
Honestly, this conclusion is probably the most dishonest thing I've heard today. I've surely heard more on other days, but for today, this takes the cake.
OH. RINOs are the problem. Silly me. Also, 80 million votes says they're not the majority.
But hey, if Rush wants to secede, who am I to stop him?
