Limbaugh: Here’s The ‘Scary’ Takeaway From Viral Video Of Feinstein Vs. ‘Green New Deal’ Kids

On his talk radio show Monday, Rush Limbaugh addressed the viral video of an encounter between California Sen. Dianne Feinstein and a group of children pushing democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s far-left and logistically impossible “Green New Deal.”

The situation, Limbaugh suggested, reveals a “scary” reality created by the Left, including Democrats like Feinstein and now, in a more radical way, Ocasio-Cortez. Not only do the kids have “no concept of representative republican government” — believing it simply means that they’re entitled to “get their way” and, if not, get to “shout and proclaim things” —some of them appear to be genuinely “scared to death” about climate change. These are the “scary, scary” consequences of an education system that has embraced left-wing indoctrination, said the host.

Limbaugh began by setting the scene: A group of largely children activists called the Sunrise Movement converged on Feinstein’s San Francisco office last week to demand that she vote for the Green New Deal. The seasoned senator wasn’t impressed. Limbaugh then played his first clip of the encounter (transcript via RushLimbaugh.com):

CHILD: We are trying to ask you to vote “yes” on the Green New Deal.

CHILD: And please.

FEINSTEIN: Okay. I’ll tell you what. We have our own Green New Deal.

CHILD: Some scientists have said that we have 12 years to turn this around.

CHILD: The government is supposed to –

FEINSTEIN: Well, it’s not gonna get turned around in 10 years.

CHILD: The government is supposed to –

FEINSTEIN: What we can do —

ADULT: Senator, if this doesn’t get turned around in 10 years you’re looking at the faces of the people who are gonna be living with the consequences.

CHILD: The government is supposed to be for the people and by the people and all for the people.

FEINSTEIN: You know what’s interesting about this group, is I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing. You come in here and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that. I’ve gotten elected. I just ran. I was elected by almost a million vote plurality. And I know what I’m doing. So, you know, maybe people should listen a little bit.

“Now, on the one hand, I totally understand her frustration, and I like it,” said Limbaugh. “On the other hand, she is helping create this!”

The Left has put the thoughts in the heads and the words in the mouths of these “robotic kids,” Limbaugh said. “Do you hear these robotic little kids?” he asked. “These kids are not old enough to think or know anything. They are plenty old enough to have absorbed like sponges and be able to repeat it.”

The whole thing, said Rush, is deeply troubling because it reveals how deep the Left’s indoctrination goes.

“Look, I’m not exaggerating,” he said. “This is scary, scary stuff to me because it shows you that we are up against a bunch of indoctrination and propagandizing, not education. And here are young kids who, whether you think they know what they’re talking about or not, they think 10 years, 12 years, they think that’s it. They think she’s not doing enough.”

He then played another clip:

CHILD: We are trying to ask you to vote “yes” on the Green New Deal.

CHILD: And please.

FEINSTEIN: Okay. I’ll tell you what. We have our own Green New Deal.

CHILD: Some scientists have said that we have 12 years to turn this around.

CHILD: The government is supposed to –

FEINSTEIN: Well, it’s not gonna get turned around in 10 years.

CHILD: The government is supposed to –

FEINSTEIN: What we can do —

ADULT: Senator, if this doesn’t get turned around in 10 years you’re looking at the faces of the people who are gonna be living with the consequences.

CHILD: The government is supposed to be for the people and by the people and all for the people.

FEINSTEIN: You know what’s interesting about this group, is I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing. You come in here and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that. I’ve gotten elected. I just ran. I was elected by almost a million vote plurality. And I know what I’m doing. So, you know, maybe people should listen a little bit.

“Believe me, one half of me loves this because it is pushback, but this is the party that’s for the children — everything is for the children,” said Limbaugh. But the troubling aspect of it overcomes the schadenfreude element, he stressed.

After playing another clip where a 16-year-old says they “voted” for Feinstein and the senator pushes back by pointing out that’s not possible, Limbaugh said: “[N]otice what they think government of the people, by the people, for the people means. They have no concept of representative republican government. They have no concept. They don’t know what of, by, and for the people means. They think it means they get their way. And, if they don’t get their way, then they get to be acting like spoiled kids, and they start getting to shout and proclaim things.”

“So they’re scared to death,” he added. “Whoever the adults are that have been in charge of these kids, look at how they’re literally scaring them to death. Who does that? I maintain to you our buddies on the American left. Kids, anybody else, scare the hell out of ’em.”

“This is breaking down on the left, folks. And this is a microcosm of the pressures that all of these Democrat presidential candidates are gonna be under,” said Limbaugh. “The ones running for office are gonna respond to entreaties like this from these programmed teenagers. And who do you think is programming them? Is it their parents? Is it their teachers? Is it the media, a combination of all of these things? But how many of you have laughed or not believed me or thought I was exaggerating when I told you that I know a bunch of young people scared to death the earth is not going to be habitable when they’re 65? Do not doubt me on this. This is exactly what they think.”
