On Friday, talk show host Rush Limbaugh said that America is under attack from within. He went on to say that one “might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war.” That war, he added, is being bought and paid for by people from both inside and outside the country. He specifically mentioned George Soros.
“America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen in my life,” he said. “And I’m sure it’s the same with you. We haven’t seen anything like this. You might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war. Some of you might say that we are already into it, that it has already begun. However you characterize it, though, we are under attack from within. And it’s being bought and paid for by people from outside America, in addition to inside.”
“I’m thinking of people like George Soros and any other number of international financiers whose objective it is to take the United States out and down as a superpower, to literally erase the United States as a powerful or super powerful nation,” he added.
He went on to explain that all of the turmoil taking place in America is by design, with the goal of erasing American history and ultimately destroying the country:
None of this that is happening on the left is random. None of the riots, none of the protests. They are not the result of the left being offended by individual acts. Antifa didn’t show up in Charlottesville because they found out something was going to happen that offended them. They showed up in Charlottesville to create mayhem and cause hell. They showed up in Ferguson, Missouri, to do the same thing.
They showed up in Baltimore to do the same thing — and wherever they show up today and tomorrow and next week, it’s by design, on purpose, has an objective and an agenda. And that agenda is to erase American history. That agenda is to distort, erase, and impugn our history. It is crucial if they are to succeed. Because, you see, if enough Americans can be persuaded that America, as founded, is unjust — if enough Americans can be persuaded that America as founded is inherently racist and immoral and illegitimate — then it will be all that much easier to erase America as founded.
The two go hand in hand, which is the objective of all of these groups on the left. Whatever they’re called and wherever they go and however they organize and whatever their day-to-day purpose, their objective is to erase the history of America. It’s to restate it, to recharacterize it in such a way as to convince a majority of Americans that their country is illegitimate and has been from the get-go — is unjust and racist and bigoted and has been from the get-go.
He continued, saying that the country is essentially finished if enough Americans can be persuaded to think that America is inherently racist and based on a lie.
“That is the objective,” he said, “and we are in the midst of it. Sometimes you’re so close to the forest you don’t see the trees. That’s what we are in the midst of here: An ongoing effort to erase America by discrediting the entire premise of our culture, our history, our founding. The objective is to create in as many American minds as possible that America as founded is not worth defending. Serious times.”
One New York writer said that the civil war is already upon us:
The left doesn’t believe in secession. It’s an authoritarian political movement that has lost democratic authority. There is now a political power struggle underway between the democratically elected officials and the undemocratic machinery of government aided by a handful of judges and local elected officials.
What this really means is that there are two competing governments; the legal government and a treasonous anti-government of the left. If this political conflict progresses, agencies and individuals at every level of government will be asked to demonstrate their allegiance to these two competing governments. And that can swiftly and explosively transform into an actual civil war.
Limbaugh blamed the media, the public education system and companies like Google for their efforts to stifle free and informed speech and diversity of thought. This, in turn, keeps people ignorant.
The result, he said, is that “ignorant people will not remain free for very long.”
And the goal, he added, goes far beyond removing Donald Trump from the White House or getting Republicans out of power. The end-game, he said, is nothing less than the complete destruction of America as a free republic.
“The campaign here is to convince you your country is deeply flawed from the outset and needs to be completely remade, reconstituted, outside the framework of a constitutional republic. ‘That has failed! We must discard that and reconstitute ourselves as an authoritarian, benevolent’ that’s what they think it would be ‘tyranny.’ The campaign is to concentrate power and to end the era of the individual and individual liberty,” he said.
Which is why our history — the good, the bad and the ugly — needs to remain intact.
“You have to know American history,” Limbaugh explained. “You have to know the purpose. You have to know America’s place in history. You have to know why 56 men risked their lives and their fortunes and their sacred honor to declare independence from the tyranny of the day. You have to know why they did that. You have to know what they faced. You have to have a deep appreciation for your individual personal liberty. You have to have a deep appreciation for the history of the world — which is that until the United States came along, that didn’t exist as a charter of government.”
An article published at the National Constitution Center by Dr. Richard Beeman, a professor of history and dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania, reminds us of a story often told about Benjamin Franklin:
…There is a story, often told, that upon exiting the Constitutional Convention Benjamin Franklin was approached by a group of citizens asking what sort of government the delegates had created. His answer was: “A republic, if you can keep it.” The brevity of that response should not cause us to under-value its essential meaning: democratic republics are not merely founded upon the consent of the people, they are also absolutely dependent upon the active and informed involvement of the people for their continued good health.
Can we maintain our Republic in the face of insane liberal political correctness? Or will we devolve into anarchy and a possible civil war?
