Radio host Rush Limbaugh voiced the feelings of many Americans on Jan. 7, siding with the very men who stood up and forced the American Revolution as he forgave the masses who had descended on the U.S. Capitol the previous day.
Limbaugh, 69, who rose to radio stardom in the 1990s, rebuked Republicans and so-called conservative pundits who were “calling for the end of violence” in a rush to appease the unappeasable: a hostile leftist media and government establishment.
“There’s a lot of people calling for the end of violence. There’s a lot of conservatives, social media, who say that any violence or aggression at all is unacceptable. Regardless of the circumstances,” he said, as reported by dailymail.com.
“I’m glad Sam Adams, Thomas Paine, the actual tea party guys, the men at Lexington and Concord didn’t feel that way,” he continued, stressing that the loud and rowdy demonstrators were simply “fed up.”
“Yesterday, hundreds of thousands of people — Americans who have gotten tired of being ignored and lied about and smeared as racists by these very Democrats in the media and the popular culture” finally spoke out, the conservative radio icon told listeners.
“Americans who have gotten fed up with having elections stolen from them by the Democrats, including the White House. Now they think two more Senate seats have been stolen, and they thought they were going to be stolen even before the election.”
Limbaugh has been an ardent supporter of President Trump. The day after the radio star revealed he had lung cancer, Trump invited him as a guest for his State of the Union speech and awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
