I usually don’t pay much attention to Rush Limbaugh because, well, he’s raving lunatic. A point which is driven home by his recent call for riots at the Democratic convention:
“Riots in Denver, the Democrat Convention would see to it that we don’t elect Democrats,” Limbaugh said during Wednesday’s radio broadcast. He then went on to say that’s the best thing that could happen to the country.
Several callers called in to the radio show to denounce Limbaugh’s comments, when he later stated, “I am not inspiring or inciting riots, I am dreaming of riots in Denver.”
Limbaugh said with massive riots in Denver, which he called part of “Operation Chaos,” the people on the far left would look bad.
“There won’t be riots at our convention,” Limbaugh said of the Republican National Convention. “We don’t riot. We don’t burn our cars. We don’t burn down our houses. We don’t kill our children. We don’t do half the things the American left does.”
He believes electing Democrats will hurt America’s security and economy and appeared to call on his listeners to make sure that doesn’t happen.
“We do, hopefully, the right thing for the sake of this country. We’re the only one in charge of our affairs. We don’t farm out our defense if we elect Democrats … and riots in Denver, at the Democratic Convention will see to it we don’t elect Democrats. And that’s the best damn thing that can happen to this country, as far as I can think,” Limbaugh said.
Later, Limbaugh downplayed his “dreaming of riots in Denver” statement, and said that he wasn’t calling for riots and was referring to warnings of trouble if superdelegates decide the nomination at the Democratic National Convention.
Apparently Rush is more afraid of the Democrats winning in November than I thought. Perhaps we should start letting him abuse drugs again. He seemed a lot less totally fucking nuts when he was high most of the time.
