LIMBAUGH: VP Pence Walking Out Of NFL Game Is What Americans Voted For

RUSH: Noblesville, Indiana. Lynn, thank you. Great to hear from you. I’m glad you called.

CALLER: Well, thank you so much for taking my call, Rush. I just called, being in Indiana, I have a little bit of an inside track or feeling towards Pence that I think there’s some things that people are forgetting here. First, I don’t know how the rest of the world feels or how much history people really understand, but President Trump stood in front of the American people and the world, and he put his hand on a Bible and he swore to upheld the Constitution.

And part of the Constitution is that he is going to defend — provide for the common defense and stand up and defense our nation. And as commander-in-chief, who better to lead our country and set the example of standing up for the flag, the men and women who fought for and continue to fight for our country and our flag than the national anthem. I can’t think of anybody else who’s more qualified and who’s more demanded to do that than Donald Trump and the vice president.

RUSH: You know, that’s an excellent point. While you were speaking I was reminded of Trump’s numerous rallies during the campaign. What was the theme? Do you remember what his theme was?

CALLER: Well, “Make America Great Again.”

RUSH: Right. “Make America Great Again.” And why did that catch on? Because a lot of people think that America’s under attack from within.

CALLER: Right. We need that. We demand that. And that’s why he won, because people are tired of having a leader and a commander-in-chief who is not upholding his constitutional and sworn oath to do that.

RUSH: Exactly right. In fact, it can be stated in an equally powerful way. Americans have grown tired of presidents and leaders who apologize for the country and who think that America is and has been the problem in the world. And, frankly, that was Barack Obama, and it is, to this day, many in the Democrat Party and on the American left.

People are sick of it. They don’t think of their country as evil. They don’t think of their country as the problem in the world. They think of America as the solution and as the answer to the problems in the world, such as economic, human rights, civil rights. There’s no better place on earth, and Americans are sick and tired of having their country derided or ripped. And so you go to Trump on the campaign trail, it wasn’t just make America great, it was obvious to anybody listening that he loved America and he was tired of people who didn’t and he was gonna restore that love and prominence.

And so you’re right. This behavior is entirely consistent. If you publicly are going to disrespect the flag and everything associated with it, if you’re gonna publicly disrespect the national anthem and the people who wear the military uniform, you are going to be pushed back against. And this is the first time that’s happened in I don’t know how long. There was no push-back during the Bush administration. Of course push-back in the Obama administration, the push-back was on the part of the American people.

But you’re right, Trump and Pence are behaving entirely consistent with their message and with their promises. Again, look, I’m redundant saying this, because I imagine some of you were nervous. How many of you wish Pence wouldn’t have walked out? This is what push-back looks like. This is what them not getting their way looks like, folks. This is what you voted for. This is what they not owning the narrative looks like. And they’re not just gonna be docile while the push-back happens.

You can call it a culture war or a series of battles, but this has been coming. It’s not going to reform itself, and it’s not going to go away. There isn’t a magic moment when the left realizes, “You know what? We’ve been wrong about this” and begins remedial behavior.
