The liberal media has made it abundantly clear that they have nothing but enmity for President Donald Trump and the Republicans who support him. Now a rather prominent voice is warning that the constant outrage, stoked by a hysterical media that frames everything done by Trump and Republicans as the “worst thing ever,” could lead to violence.
On his program Wednesday, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh warned, “If the media keeps this up — if they keep up generating this hysteria — somebody’s gonna get killed.”
“I think we’re pretty close to somebody getting killed already, and I’m not being hyperbolic, and I’m not trying to call attention to myself,” he continued. “I’m genuinely worried about the out-of-control aspect of this. The news media’s fanning the flames. The news media is leading the way on this.”
Limbaugh referred to the current focus of the media, the issue of family separation at the border, as merely a “manufactured crisis” by the media designed to stir up the left, one of many that all derive from Trump’s “unpardonable sin” of defeating the Democrats in 2016.
Making the liberal media even angrier is the fact that “Donald Trump’s popularity is increasing. His approval numbers are increasing. Overall satisfaction in the country is rising.”
“In fact, if you dig deep into this latest Gallup survey, you find that all across the board in this country people are looking up, and they’re optimistic. It’s rooted to economics,” stated Limbaugh. “The only group of people fit to be tied are Democrats, and it is just… It’s eating them alive. These people are people who think they run this country.”
Limbaugh said the media are “being confronted every day with their failure. This all began with personal hatred of Donald Trump back in 2015, and it has just ratcheted up with the passing of every week, and it’s reached the boiling point now.”
“So hate is governing, fueling everything that is occurring in what we call the news media today. Virtually every news story today has a component driving it, which is hate,” he continued and explained how the hate had become all-encompassing.
“This is who the American left is. They have been trending in this direction for the entire time I’ve been hosting this particular program,” stated Limbaugh. “Yeah, it happened before, but now it is full-blown, five-alarm, 9.8 Richter scale, DEFCON 5 rage. I really mean I think somebody’s gonna get seriously hurt here before this is all over.”
Limbaugh provided examples of liberal hate boiling over, such as the recent threats from Hollywood actor Peter Fonda, threats from unknown individuals against members of Congress, and of course the shooting at a Republican baseball practice in 2017 that nearly claimed the life of Rep. Steve Scalise.
Rush Limbaugh raised a valid point that many of us have been quietly thinking about for some time.
It is incredibly concerning that the unmitigated anti-Trump hate on the left seems to be boiling over to the point where the left won’t be satisfied until they’ve drawn blood.
