On Monday, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh returned from his Christmas break to address the ongoing meltdown from the left after President Trump approved a drone strike that killed Iranian terrorist Qassem Soleimani.
“So what happened?” Limbaugh started. “The president kills a well-known terrorist who is responsible for the death of hundreds of Americans, including uniformed military personnel, and the left melts down. The left has a breakdown.”
Limbaugh explains that the reason why the left is having a breakdown is because of the fact that Donald Trump is President.
“If anybody is puzzled by this, all you have to do is go back to when Trump came down the escalator on June 15th of 2016 and announced his slogan Make America Great Again,” Limbaugh said. “Remember how controversial that was? Make America Great Again, what’s controversial about that? What in the world is controversial about America first?”
“But it is to the American left,” he continued. “And therein lies the explanation for all this.”
Limbaugh then went onto break down the situation and specifically talked about how Twitter is exposing the left.
“Twitter, in my mind, has become useful,” he said. “Now, Snerdly and the gang on the other side of the glass are looking perplexed and puzzled because it is well known that I think of sewer and Twitter as inseparable. But Twitter is highly useful right now. Twitter is allowing the left and today’s Democrats and the media to show normal people how freaking insane they are.”
“As I watch this display, as I watch the left melt down over the death of a genuine enemy of the people of this country and side with an enemy nation over their own country and president, I wonder how many Americans, independents, what have you, who are on the fence see this and are shocked and surprised by it,” he said.
“Why is the left being so blatant in their support for an enemy nation? Why is the left, why is the Democrat Party going out of its way to tell everybody that they actually prefer the mullahs in Iran and this dead terrorist, Qassem Soleimani?” Limbaugh questioned. He answered, saying that President Trump’s slogan is why the Democratic party is upset about Soleimani’s death.
“To normal, decent, common citizen Americans, what in the world is controversial about that: Make America Great Again? The answer is very simple,” he said. “There are a lot of people in the Democrat Party that don’t think America ever has been great, do not think America can be great (because of our founding), don’t believe America deserves to be great and, in fact, thinks America’s guilty — and they have now become the mainstream media of the Democrat Party.”
“Madeleine Albright’s out there teaching young skulls full of mush there’s nothing special about America — it’s just a coincidence, just an accident — and that the United States as a singular superpower is a destabilizing element in the world,” he continued.
“That view, that America alone as a superpower is destabilizing is a view widely held in the civil service throughout the State Department,” Rush stated. ”It’s not an obscure view. It’s not a minority view. It took me a long time to learn this, long time to believe it, long time to understand it, long time to accept it.”
“A lot of people don’t want to accept that in our own government, there are people who do not believe in the goodness of the United States, the concept of America as the good guys,” he said. “But you’re looking at it! In every bit of this opposition to what Trump has done, you’re seeing it.”
Limbaugh then brought former President Barack Obama into the mix.
“Obama had the same view of the Middle East that he and Madeleine Albright and all the rest of them have of the United States,” said Limbaugh. “The Middle East was destabilized when only Israel was an economic and military power… One of the reasons the Obama administration entered into the Iran deal, one of the reasons that they engaged Iran, one of the reasons that Obama dropped off $150 billion in cash on the tarmac in Tehran — and don’t think that some of it didn’t get to Qassem Soleimani.”
Rush then pointed out how Obama was completely aware that some of the money given to Iran was used to fund terrorism through Soleimani. “They were making deals with this guy,” he said. “They knew exactly who he was. Obama believed that empowering Iran would stabilize the Middle East, provide a counterbalance to Israel. Because once again, the Israelis are not seen as the good guys, even though they are a United States ally.”
Limbaugh continues and explains that when the left sees President Trump killing Soleimani, they see “an assault on Obama, an assault on Obama’s foreign policy, an effort and an attempt to unravel and unwind it.”
“And they’re right,” he said. “Trump is unwinding it, unraveling a horrible Middle Eastern policy from the Obama administration.”
