RUSH: No Matter How You Cut It “Americans Want Statues Left Alone”

RUSH: Okay. Now, after all of that polling data — which, it’s undoubted, folks. The media is portraying public opinion on Charlottesville and the statue area totally erroneously. No matter how you cut it, a majority of Americans want the statues left alone. They do not support this effort of cleansing American history from public. It’s obvious in every group. Even in the Northeast, when the geographic slice is made, you find — even in the Northeast — a majority of Americans want the statues left alone.

It’s only liberal and very liberal Americans, who want them down, and that’s a subset; it’s not a minority of that group. But after all of that news, the same poll says 61% of the American people have “little or no confidence in Trump’s leadership of the nation during an international crisis.”

So what are we to make of this? Those two things kind of are at odds. The one, I think, irrefutable conclusion is that the media is overwhelmingly distorting the public’s reaction to Trump’s handling of what happened in Charlottesville. They are blowing that so out of proportion. The media’s handling of this is in no way reflective of public opinion of it — and that, to me, is big. The 61% who say they have “little or no confidence in Trump’s leadership in an international crisis,” that’s kind of a standalone. It’s a problem, yeah. But the other stuff, I think, is big.



RUSH: I’ll assume the role of unpaid strategist here for five minutes.

It’s very simple, Mr. President. You become the United States president of the economy. You become the president of tax cuts. You become the president of jobs. You become president of economic policy. And leave this social stuff to Ivanka, or whoever. You focus on why you were elected. You become the president of the wall, the president of borders.

You become the president of tax cuts and tax reform, and you laser focus on the economy, and you laser focus on getting the GDP up to three to five percent. And you do that, Mr. President, and they can nip at your heels like a bunch of Chihuahuas all day long and it isn’t gonna matter.

But Trump, when these things happen like Charlottesville, Trump knows the truth. He knows where the real power is. He knows these people that are being blamed didn’t do anything. The real power is the rioters on the left. Trump knows this.


RUSH: Bannon Is Gonna Become REVERED And RESPECTED Because Trump Fired Him

RUSH: Up until about 20 minutes ago, one of the most reviled, hated, despised people in Washington was Steve Bannon. Before the end of the day, he is going to be one of the most revered, respected, lionized members. You know what’s gonna happen? I tell you what’s gonna happen.

They’re gonna say that Bannon realized this whole thing’s up. It’s over, and he wanted to go out. But he didn’t want to resign ’cause they’d call him a quitter. So he goes and gives that interview with that American Prospect — this left-wing rag — and undercuts Trump on North Korea and undercuts Trump elsewhere, and Trump fired him. “Bannon wanted off there. It was so bad in there that not even a guy sympathetic to the Alt-Right can put up with the accuse insanity going on in the White House.” Then they’re gonna be seeking out Bannon for interviews.

He’s gonna get book deals. He’s gonna get movie deals. He’s gonna get TV show deals. “Tell us the truth about what went on in there., Tell us how you had to tell Trump what time it was every day. What time did you go to the residence to get Trump out of bed to make sure he was at the Oval Office on time?” This kind of stuff. (interruption) You doubt me? This is exactly what’s gonna happen. They’re gonna try. There will be some people that try this. The point is Bannon’s gonna become revered and respected because Trump fired him.

And if Trump fired him, it must mean that Bannon had seen the light and just could not continue. “He had to get thrown out. He couldn’t quit. That’s not good. You don’t want to look like a quitter.”


LIMBAUGH: I Wouldn’t Be Surprised If The RNC Is Counting Impeachment Votes Among Republicans

RUSH: Look, folks, I wouldn’t be surprised. I don’t want you thinking I’m off the reservation. I wouldn’t be surprised if the RNC itself is now counting impeachment votes among Republicans. I’m not predicting it; I’m just telling you, if I were to learn that, I don’t know if I’d be surprised. They’re all scared to death of the media. For crying out loud. What’s so hard about this?


RUSH: “America Is Under Attack From Within… We Are On The Cusp Of A Second Civil War”

RUSH: 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.

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.

Now, folks, in order to defend America, which I believe is incumbent upon all of us, in order to defend America, you have to begin knowing our history. If you’re gonna defend the United States of America, you have to know our history. You have to know the purpose of the United States of America. You have to know unequivocally and proudly the United States’ place in history. And that is why erasing and distorting our history is crucial for the left to succeed.

None of this that is happening on the left is random. None of the riots, none of the protests. They are not the result of the left being offended by individual acts. 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. They showed up in Ferguson, Missouri, to do the same thing.

They showed up in Baltimore to do the same thing — and wherever they show up today and tomorrow and next week, it’s by design, on purpose, has an objective and an agenda. And that agenda is to erase American history. That agenda is to distort, erase, and impugn our history. It is crucial if they are to succeed. 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.
