On Friday, conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh had a dire warning for liberty-minded Americans.
According to Breitbart, Limbaugh stated that the United States could be headed towards another civil war. He said,
“America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen in my life. And I’m sure it’s the same with you. We haven’t seen anything like this. You might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war. Some of you might say that we are already into it, that it has already begun. However you characterize it, though, we are under attack from within. And it’s being bought and paid for by people from outside America, in addition to inside.”
The talk show host also stated that the attack on the United States is being funded by people like George Soros,
“I’m thinking of people like George Soros and any other number of international financiers whose objective it is to take the United States out and down as a superpower, to literally erase the United States as a powerful or super powerful nation.”
According to Limbaugh, the left is trying to attack the foundation of America’s principles by trying to revise its history. He cites the movement to remove Confederate statues as an example of this,
“Antifa didn’t show up in Charlottesville because they found out something was going to happen that offended them. They showed up in Charlottesville to create mayhem and cause hell.” Limbaugh stated that the leftist riots we have been seeing are not random — they are by design. They are being carried out in order to convince the American public that the United States is a racist nation that needs to be remade in their image. “Because, you see, if enough Americans can be persuaded that America, as founded, is unjust — if enough Americans can be persuaded that America as founded is inherently racist and immoral and illegitimate — then it will be all that much easier to erase America as founded.”
Limbaugh’s words should be troubling to anyone who espouses true American values. Over the past few decades, we have seen many on the left attempting to bend our society to their will. It is one of the reasons why leftists are so quick to label those with whom they disagree as bigots. It is why they are obsessed with race. It is why they are attempting to shove their theories of intersectionality on the rest of American society.
The talk show host also said “If enough Americans can be persuaded of all of that — that America is inherently racist, that America is and has been a lie — then it’s over. That is the objective, and we are in the midst of it. Sometimes you’re so close to the forest you don’t see the trees.” He is right. The motivation behind the left’s fixation on bigotry is to convince Americans that our country needs a major overhaul — one that the left should facilitate using the power of government.
What is truly dangerous about the left’s objectives is that they have the means by which they can accomplish their goals. They own most of the news media. The entertainment industry is dominated by leftists. Our universities are being run by left-wing leadership who insist on promoting their views instead of exposing students to other opinions.
Limbaugh also recognizes this: “Ignorant people will not remain free for very long. The media is working on a path parallel with school systems to actively and passively distort information to wipe out from the vestiges of our history and our memory any collection of stories that testify to the greatness of America and her people.”
If we want to remain a free society, we need to stand against ideologies that seek to make us more reliant on the government. Conservatives have to expose the flaws of the left’s arguments and show the rest of America how they are attempting to force their views on us. This issue is too important to ignore. If we are going to preserve our true values, we must be willing to speak out against the left — while we still can.
