Rush Limbaugh has an interesting theory on why the GOP allows ‘leftists’ to tear America apart

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, during the Thursday airing of his nationally syndicated radio show, claimed that the GOP is standing aside while “leftists” destroy America.

Limbaugh opened his segment with a direct shot to the media, in which he said, “The media is dividing this country and tearing it apart, and because of fear of the media, way too many on our side are unwilling to stop or even try to explain or oppose this.”

“Identity politics,” he continued, “which we have been focusing on in recent weeks — intensely in recent days — is the primary weapon being used to divide the country.”

Limbaugh noted that “black people and white people who were never slaves are fighting white people and others who were never Nazis over Confederate statues erected by Democrats,” and added that “somehow it’s all Donald Trump’s fault.”

The radio host condemned mainstream media outlets like CNN, which he claimed only spin stories, and speak out of the sides of their mouths, in order to sabotage the GOP, Republicans, conservatives, and the Trump administration.

About CNN, Limbaugh added, “The questions continue to be asked, and as such, the Republicans have no brand. They have no credibility. They can’t get anything in their agenda done because they won’t condemn whatever went on in Charlottesville, or because they wish to condemn also the violence perpetrated by Black Lives Matter and the anarchists and the Antifa people and so forth. Which, if you do that, CNN and others just jump right down your throat as though you’re a bigot and a racist for daring to point out that the violence everywhere in this country often starts by people on the left. And not only is the violence in this country often started by people on the left, they are the sole practitioners of the violence in 99% of protests.”

“Ninety-nine percent of protests you don’t even see the Republicans showing up,” Limbaugh said. “It’s a relatively new phenomenon that opposition to the left is showing up at protests. But it still isn’t mainstream Republicans showing up. They just don’t do it. And it isn’t mainstream conservatives showing up to protests. You disagree with the premise, 99% of all violent protests and riots in this country start and are engineered and practiced by the left?”

Charlottesville was the Dems fault from all I have read. The alt right had a permit, anti protestors didn't. The Dems governor declares an illegal demonstration when there was no real violence. City cops leave the field to put on riot gear, state police force legal demonstrators out into mob of armed illegal demonstrators and trouble ensues. Scared kid driving his car has his car attacked and panics speeding into another car and protestors from police statement his car had been hit with fists pounding on it before he sped up. So if the governor had kept out of it, ans the protestors been properly keep apart none of this may have happened. Dems are to blame and have cost us all significant money for the midnight removal of statues that most people probably didn't Even notice in their day to day activities. Leaving the birds nowhere to rest or poop but on the streets and our cars. Didn't realize the Dems actions were meant to help the car wash business, so anti climate change.

Republicans have jobs and families to support.
Most of us don't have the time or inclination to be symbolically arrested or chant patently stupid proclamations, and are not dumb enough to block an Interstate highway with our bodies.
And when we DO show up, it's not to fight. That would be the primary (and oft stated, by the way) objective of the other side.
Limbaugh is right. And CNN refuses to show it.

Keep cheering.
