Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh expressed a rare opinion on his “open-line Friday” show, which was while many on both the Right and Left wish Hillary Clinton would disappear from political life, Limbaugh says that he wants her to stay around for as long as she can because she’s actually helping the conservative cause, reports The Daily Wire.
His latest example of how Hillary is helping Republicans has to do with her accidental exposure of the false media narrative about the “March For Our Lives,” event that happened in D.C. and across the nation a couple of weeks ago.
At one of Clinton’s less lucrative paid speeches this past week at the Eagleton Institute Forum, she began speaking about the anti-gun rally that was organized mostly by the student survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting. But what she does in talking about the event is make an interesting connection to another liberal march that Limbaugh notices.
“‘You think, well who’s against these things? You’re advocating for climate change or you’re advocating on behalf of those brave young students from Parkland for common sense gun safety measures. (cheers) And you find out that there are a lot of people who don’t want that to happen because they have other interests, they see the world differently, they make money from it. The biggest challenge we face is keeping up our momentum of sustaining the energy that I have now seen across our country. And we just saw in the march the day after the inauguration and (cheers) now we’ve seen it on the March for Life,’ Clinton said at the speech.”
“Now, that’s an interesting connection, the march the day after the inauguration was the Women’s March where they’re wearing the vagina hats; and she correlates that, relates that to the so-called March for Life,” said Limbaugh. “And it was. It was the same people. I don’t know if you were here yesterday, but all kinds of information now has been learned about the March for Our Lives protest. Fewer than 10% were teenagers. Over 50% were women, and I think around 50% of the people there had voted for Hillary.
“It was just the latest resistance-to-Trump rally, and it was undertaken under the auspices of the kids from Parkland and the save our lives gun control thing,” he continued. “But that’s not what it was. It was your average, ordinary, run-of-the-mill Trump resistance March that is generally led by women who voted for Hillary, who are still ticked off and upset about it.”
What Limbaugh is referencing is a study published by the Washington Post that claims only 10 percent of attendees of the march were under 18 and only 27 percent were “first-time protestors.”
That kind of information directly contradicts the narrative that mainstream liberal media is trying to portray this pro-gun control march as entirely organized by the children and students who have been victims of school shootings when really it was organized by the liberal anti-gun lobbyists of Washington, which include the Women’s March organizers.
The pretense that this march was sole to protest gun violence in schools and to implore Congress to pass “common sense gun laws” is just not true and it is the liberal media that is distorting the view of what the March really was about, which Limbaugh points out.
The survey The Washington Post created found that only 47% of all attendees were motivated to be there for the issue of gun control, and only 12% of the young people were there for the issue.
“So what were the other motivations? Nearly four times as many (42%) were there to protest Donald Trump, while 56% were there for ‘peace,'” The Daily Wire noted.
Limbaugh then played the comment from Clinton that has caused the most stir: her claim that men are “never” told to “go away” like she is:
“‘I was really struck by, um, how people said that to me, you know, mostly people in the press, for whatever reason, like, “Oh, you know, go away, go away.” They never said that to any man who was not elected,’ Clinton said.”
Limbaugh led off the segment by underscoring that he, unlike basically everyone else, wants Clinton around as long as possible because he thinks its helping conservatives more than ever. \
“You know, there are a lot of people on our side that wish Hillary Clinton would go away. I’m not one of them,” he said. “You mention Hillary Clinton’s name and people groan. ‘Aw, come on, can’t that woman just realize it’s over and kind of slink away.’ And I understand the sentiments. But I hope that she doesn’t go away. I hope the Democrats keep paying her somehow to appear in public.”
“I hope she keeps showing up in walking boots,” he added later. “Now she’s got a big cast on her arm, on her right arm, the right wrist. I hope she keeps showing up in these Coke bottle glasses, and I hope she keeps whining, and I hope she keeps complaining and blaming and rambling on about whatever it is that’s on her mind. Because Hillary Clinton perfectly represents a party of victims. Man, if there’s ever been a prototype and an icon for a victim, a Democrat Party victim, Hillary Clinton is owning it.”
