Responding to the reaction displayed by propagandists in the so-called “mainstream media” to Stephen Miller’s explanation of the new legal immigration bill, talk show host Rush Limbaugh essentially said that so-called “reporters” are simply too stupid to understand a commonsense piece of legislation.
“It’s making me revise my thinking just a little bit. One thing is for sure. The Drive-By Media is populated with people who are not just biased and bigoted and prejudicial. It’s obvious that they are also the victims of an absolutely pathetic education system. I think we have to now conclude, after what we saw yesterday in the White House, that some of these people are just idiots,” Limbaugh said on Thursday.
They’re just ignorant. They just don’t know anything. They have not been taught truth. They have not been taught history. They’ve not been taught fact, which is one thing, but then this smug, arrogant condescension that you get from them thinking they know everything is more than you can handle.

Thanks to the willful ignorance of the media, the country is literally “regressing,” Limbaugh said.
He went on to call Miller, “one of the — if not the — best spokesmen that the Trump administration can roll out to make the case for whatever policy positions they’re trying to advance.”
“Stephen Miller did one thing: He simply recited common sense,” Limbaugh explained. “This is a common sense immigration bill. If there was ever a piece of common sense legislation, this is it. That term is thrown around by politicians ’cause it polls well, common sense climate change, common sense energy policy, common sense whatever. It polls well. It focus groups well.”
He later added:
Now, I know what some of you are saying, “Rush, they’re not stupid. They knew exactly what they were doing.” No. I agree they’re biased, and I agree that they exist in a world of pure, sheer, raw hatred for anything they don’t agree with, but I do believe they’re also ignorant. I think they’re dumb as skunks. I don’t think they’ve been educated. They haven’t the ability to hear and listen to common sense and understand what it is. I’m gonna demo all of this. The first thing I’m gonna do — by the way, as a preview, this all manifests itself into the most embarrassing display of misunderstanding of the Statue of Liberty that you’ve ever heard.
Members of the media, Jim Acosta of CNN and Glenn Thrush, formerly Politico, now the New York Times, and all of them actually think the Statue of Liberty is the symbol of immigration. And they believe the Emma Lazarus poem that is on the pedestal is the equivalent of immigration policy in the United States. They’re not the only ones.
There are a number of Americans who’ve been taught that, that the Constitution has nothing to do with immigration. The Declaration of Independence has nothing to do with it. It’s the Statue of Liberty. And there is complete and total ignorance about it. And I maintain it’s because they have not been taught the truth. And even if they have been taught the truth, they have rejected it in favor of what their political biases happen to be as their political biases relate to their narrative and the agenda.
In short, liberal hacks in what we call the “Democrat-media complex” are not only ignorant of history, facts and common sense, they willfully choose to stay that way. It’s one thing, after all, to be ignorant. It’s quite another to purposefully stay that way and work to make others equally ignorant.
That’s just, well, stupid. And as a result of liberal media stupidity, many Americans will continue to think a poem etched into a statue somehow equals settled law when it doesn’t.
