There's nothing Rush Limbaugh enjoys more than a Democrat publicly proving him right, especially a pantsuit-wearing Democrat who lost an unloseable election to a former reality TV star who pollsters said had no shot in hell of winning. On Wednesday, Limbaugh got a chance to riff on Hillary Clinton doing "her best Maxine Waters impersonation" and admitting that her party has enthusiastically embraced incivility.
"Hillary Clinton went out the other day in an interview with Christiane Amanpour and pretty much admitted everything I have been trying to warn people of about the American left and the Democrat Party," said Limbaugh. "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."
Clinton's alleged cut-off for all that incivility — like we've been witnessing ad nauseum on Capitol Hill for the last month — is if voters will finally cede the government to those, like herself, who should rightfully be in charge. "If they win the House, then they can go back to being civil," Rush explained. "If they win the Senate, then they can return to civility."
Limbaugh then pointed out what many others on the right have noted: "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. I haven’t heard one elected Democrat suggest to these deranged protesters to dial it back. I haven’t heard one. They are all encouraging it."
Rush then got to his central point: "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’re not even looking at any of this as about ideas. 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. 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."
Limbaugh added that despite all the pro-minority and pro-disenfranchised posturing from progressives, the truth is Hillary and co. don't actually care about those they say they're defending. In the end, this is simply about doing whatever it takes, and using whoever it takes, to stay in power.
"It’s okay to be uncivil," said Rush. "It’s okay to claw at the doors of the Supreme Court and try to get in to stop the swearing-in ceremony of Brett Kavanaugh."
