Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh described himself as “ecstatic,” even “giddy” following President-elect Donald Trump’s electoral victory early Wednesday morning.
However, his happinessat the resounding defeat of Democrats was checked by a nagging worry at something he saw developing in the aftermath of the election that could essentially hand the hard-won victory back over to the opposition.
What was it that had Rush so worried that he had to break his good mood to speak about it on Thursday’s program?
The nearly instantaneous calls for “unity” and peace from the Democrats and the almost Pavlovian response of establishment Republicans immediately bending over backward to reach out to those who were just vanquished.
“I’m sick of it. I’m fed up with it. I have watched it happen for now 29 years, and I’m not gonna sit here and stand or sit mute while it happens again,” Limbaugh said. “We have been governed against our will for the last eight years.”
Rush took a moment to explain just how vanquished the Democrat Party and its agenda really was, leading up to his point that the GOP should not be so quick to offer a friendly hand to their bitter opponents who would not do the same if the situation were reversed.
“The Democrat Party has been decimated. They have no bench. They don’t have anybody bringing up the rear in case Hillary lost. They have literally been shellacked,” he explained. “We have been governed by a minority against our will, and the illusion has been that they are the majority and gaining the majority and growing the majority.”
He then spoke of the professionally organized anti-Trump protests that have hit the streets in some urban areas, noting that it was a ploy to guilt victorious Republicans into feeling as if they must reach out and change their ways to pacify the angry mob with a gesture of peace and unity.
“The time to unify is after we have forced them into surrender just like we did the Japanese in World War II,” proclaimed Rush. “But the days of unifying with the losers because they’re mad and we don’t want the media saying mean things about us, they lost. And, folks, they have been losing since 2010.”
Rush proceeded to make clear that the election was a repudiation by the American people of not just Hillary Clinton, but also President Barack Obama, his failed progressive policies, and the Democrat agenda in general.
He chided those who would allow or even help a near-defeated rival to regain their feet and continue the fight again.
He later added that there would plenty of time to extend olive branches and work on “unity” later on, after the GOP had pressed their advantage and achieved long-awaited successes on their own agenda items that have been placed on the back burner for the past eight years.
Limbaugh was absolutely right that Republicans don’t need to reach out to Democrats by changing their agenda, as the Democrats most certainly didn’t do so in 2008 and wouldn’t have done so if they had swept this 2016 election instead of the GOP.
Unity can wait for the moment when the Republican agenda is implemented and liberals continue to pitch fits and throw temper tantrums in the streets and online.
Maybe when they grow up and approach the GOP with hat in hand, ready to actually make concessions of their own and work together instead of expecting the GOP to simply bow to their whims, perhaps then we can work on a little unity between the two parties.
