On Monday, Rush Limbaugh — the nation’s most popular radio host — connected Sunday’s massacre of Christians by a proud atheist in Sutherland Springs, Texas, the violent assault on Senator Rand Paul by a leftist neighbor, and the shooting of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise a few months ago to the stoking of violence against conservatives by the Democrat Party and the media.
According to Limbaugh: “Democrats and liberals are out attacking and shooting Republicans and conservatives! This Looney Toon guy that shot up the congressional baseball practice that nearly killed Steve Scalise. We have this Texas shooter who’s obviously an oddball.”
“Now this guy attacked Rand Paul, and then there’s a story: “Keeping Scott Pruitt Safe.” Scott Pruitt is, of course, the EPA administrator. Since Scott Pruitt got there and has been implementing the Donald Trump anti-climate change agenda and bringing coal back to the American forefront in terms of energy production — basically focusing on fossil fuels and fracking and ignoring and shredding the Obama Regime’s climate change rules… I mean, the security detail that is needed for Scott Pruitt would blow your mind.
We’ve had a violent attack on a Republican senator in his own yard by a leftist neighbor. This horrible shooting in Texas at the church. We had this shooting in New York City via the Diversity Visa Program, and now we have the Scott Pruitt story from the Wall Street Journal. This actually was from November 1st. There’s an editorial: “Keeping Scott Pruitt Safe — Reform in Washington is always difficult, but at the Environmental Protection Agency it’s also dangerous.”
Later in the segment, Limbaugh had this to say:
“Now the EPA administrator needs 24/7 protection for himself and his family. I’m just gonna tell you: Terrorists do not always just come from Uzbekistan.
They don’t just come from Afghanistan. They don’t just come from Al-Qaeda. Sometimes terrorists come straight from the Democrat Party, straight from the American left — and, worse, the Democrats then try to suggest that it is wasting money. That’s what they’re say with Scott Pruitt, wasting money trying to protect himself from their constituents. But the encourage this! The vile, repulsive, just raw rage and anger that is on display daily on social media is infectious.”
