RUSH: “A writer for the website Gawker recently penned a self-described ‘rant’ on the pressing need to arrest, charge, and imprison people who ‘deny’ global warming. In fairness, Adam Weinstein doesn’t want mass arrests. (Besides, in a country where only 44 percent of Americans say there is ‘solid evidence’ of global warming and it’s mostly due to human activity, you can’t round up every dissenter.)”
So this guy, see, he’s reasonable. He doesn’t want to put everybody in jail. Oh, no, no! No. ‘Cause he knows he can’t put everybody who dissents in jail.
“Fact-checking scientists are spared. So is ‘the man on the street who thinks Rush Limbaugh is right. … You all know that man. That man is an idiot.” He only thinks what he thinks because he listens to Limbaugh. “He is too stupid to do anything other than choke the earth’s atmosphere a little more with his … F-150’s gassy exhaust.'” So you people, you drive Ford F-150s or whatever.
You’re not gonna be jailed. Don’t worry about it. You’re just idiots. It is I, the man poisoning your minds, that they want to imprison. “But Weinstein’s magnanimity ends there. Someone must pay. Weinstein suggests the government simply try the troublemakers and spokespeople. You know, the usual suspects. People like Limbaugh himself as well as ringleaders of political organizations and businesses that refuse to toe the line.
The reason they’re putting people in jail is not to punish them. It’s to shut them up. Shut them up and get rid of them so they can’t influence anybody else. And by getting rid of them, you frighten everybody else about speaking up so that they don’t. So you end up with no opposition. Jail the prominent leaders of your option and you have silenced all opposition, which is what the left is all about.
We can sit here and you can say, “Come on, Rush. Nobody’s gonna put you in jail over this. Come on, Rush, are you really trying to get us afraid for you that you’re gonna go to jail?” No. What I’m telling you is there are people who would do it if they could. I just call your attention to what just happened this poor guy out at Mozilla. It’s always been an objective of mine to make sure people really, honestly understand who liberals are and what the left is.
