Rush Limbaugh nails it.

 

In the aftermath hate-filled violence Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, some on the left have resumed their quest to rid the country of statues memorializing Confederate generals and soldiers with renewed vigor, even succeeding in dragging one down themselves Monday in Durham, North Carolina, as they claim they symbolize the worst aspects of our nation’s past.

Enter the “Rev.” Al Sharpton, who exclaimed Monday night on PBS with host Charlie Rose that the Jefferson Memorial needed to come down — yes, the memorial to Thomas Jefferson, founding father, Declaration of Independence author and third president of our nation — because he owned slaves and Sharpton found that offensive, according to The Washington Times.

If you find that to be patently absurd, have no fear, for you are not alone. In fact, you are in the company of none other than the king of conservative talk radio, Rush Limbaugh, who jokingly played out the absurdity of that thought process to its only logical conclusion, the dissolution of the Democrat Party.

“Thomas Jefferson was one of the founders of this country, and you see what this really is about here? This is about not just delegitimizing Donald Trump, and it’s not just about getting rid of him,” stated Rush during part of Tuesday’s program. “These people are on a tear to delegitimize this entire country, as part of their effort to transform it and — dare I say — overthrow it however they might try to make that happen.”

After he stated that, “These are people that cannot be mollified,” Rush continued to lay out some of the history of our nation’s founding, including the heated debate at the time regarding the — even then — controversial institution of slavery.

“And their whole argument resides on the notion that it hasn’t changed, that there still is, for all intents and purposes, slavery,” Limbaugh continued. “There still is racism. There still is bigotry.

And now it’s been joined by a bunch of Nazis and Klan members — and the Klan was all Democrats, and the segregationists in the South were all Democrats,” he added. “I’d like to ask a question about this, for those of you on the left. You want to tear down the statues of Robert E. Lee and you want to tear down, now, the Jefferson Memorial if you’re Al Sharpton …

“But you want to get rid of all of these monuments that have been erected to people and events in our nation’s past, tied to the Civil War, which you find horribly, horribly offensive and you want to get rid of all vestiges,” stated Rush.

“Well, at what point are you gonna realize that you also have to disband the Democrat Party?” he asked. “If you’re gonna really succeed and follow through to the end on this mission, you’ve got to get rid of the Democrat Party, and you have got to wipe a bunch of people out of it.”

Limbaugh proceeded to name names of prominent Democrats from the not-too-distant past who were known to be bigoted and racist, even open members of the KKK, who are nevertheless still held in high regard by some Democrats. Many had towns, roads and major institutions named after them, all of which must be summarily changed if Democrats were intellectually honest with themselves.
