Rush Limbaugh goes there: ‘I actually think that we’re trending toward secession’
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh went where few others dare to go on his show on Wednesday and predicted conservative states might secede from the rest of the country. He warned that “there cannot be a peaceful coexistence,” and suggested that the country is “trending toward secession” after a caller asked him how Republicans can win national elections if they can’t recapture “blue cities.”
“Are we ever gonna be able to win without taking back some of these cities? He’s talking about blue cities like New York, Philadelphia. I assume you mean Detroit? Do you include Milwaukee in this? Definitely. All right. What about Oakland, California? Too far gone. San Francisco? You think we can get San Francisco? Look, we won election after election after election without winning these cities or the states they’re in.”
“I’ve alluded to this a couple of times ’cause I’ve seen others allude to this. I actually think that we’re trending toward secession,” Rush solemnly said. “I see more and more people asking, ‘What in the world do we have in common with the people who live in, say, New York? What is there that makes us believe that there is enough of us there to even have a chance at winning New York?’ Especially if you’re talking about votes.”
Rush then said that “more and more people,” ostensibly referring to conservatives, are questioning “what in the world” they have in common with people who live in New York.
Over 73 million Americans voted for President Trump and find the socialist policies of the Democrats untenable. 18 states are siding with Texas asking SCOTUS to overturn the election due to voter fraud. Many Americans believe this election was stolen from Trump and from them and no longer trust the election process. That many disaffected Americans could be a recipe for a revolution and that is what Rush is addressing here.
“A lot of bloggers have written extensively about how distant and separated and how much more separated our culture is becoming politically and that it can’t go on this way. There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs. We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way,” he added.
Limbaugh concluded the segment by saying he wasn’t sure if he wanted this scenario to play out in real life. He realizes the implications of this type of upheaval.
“I know that there’s a sizable and growing sentiment for people who believe that that is where we’re headed whether we want to or not. Whether we want to go there or not. I myself haven’t made up my mind. I still haven’t given up the idea that we are the majority and that all we have to do is find a way to unite and win. And our problem is the fact that there are just so many RINOs, so many Republicans in the Washington establishment who will do anything to maintain their membership in the establishment because of the perks and the opportunities that are presented for their kids and so forth.”
