RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): Yesterday, hundreds of thousands of people -- Americans who have gotten tired of being ignored and lied about and smeared as racists by these very Democrats in the media and the popular culture. Americans who have gotten fed up with having election stolen from them by the Democrats, including the White House. Now they think two more Senate seats have been stolen, and they thought they were going to be stolen even before the election.

And these people went to Washington. They weren't protesters paid by George Soros and the Democrat Party. The overwhelming majority of these Americans were well-behaved and respectful. They're not known. These are Republicans, they don't raise mayhem, they don't know how. How many times have we sat here over 30 years bemoaning the fact that this is not what Republicans do? That they are either too busy working or they don't know how or they are waiting for somebody else to do it. But the fact remains they don't do it. Republicans do not join protest mobs, they do not loot, and they don't riot to the grand disappointment of many people. But a tiny minority of these protesters and undoubtedly including some antifa Democrat-sponsored instigators did decide to go to the Capitol to protest. The people's house by the way.

Just as Democrats in the guise of Code Pink and a thousand other guises have done before. They actually raided Senate hearings. Code Pink actually got in the damn hearing room, raised hell, threatened violence. They were there because Democrat senators gave them invitations. They were politely escorted out after their political message had been given and covered on television. As recently as this time last year, anti-Trump protests were held in the Capitol during the impeachment. All of the sudden protesting Congress is being called the end of the world. Can't have this. The worst crime against democracy in our nation's history. And yet, all kinds of anti-presidential protest were held in the Capitol during the impeachment and nobody was concerned about it in terms of the damage being done to our government institutions.
