RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): The answer to the question, “Does it make it harder to defend the president?” No! It's not hard at all, and let me show you how to do it. And then they can launch into being on offense, and what that sounds like. Now, here comes the Greta Thunberg question. Trump did tweet — let's not forget the context here. The first thing to notice about Greta Thunberg is that she's 16 years old. She claims she has Ansperger's type — Ausperger's — or autism — Asperger's — some kind of problem in that area. And so she is made the Person of the Year by Time magazine, which is what? A political news magazine. Greta Thunberg has been introduced into the political arena by the worldwide left, including the Democrat Party. They have made her a political figure. They do this on purpose. So she's out tweeting and politicizing, and she is free to lie and say whatever she wants to say about climate change and who's responsible for it. And nobody is permitted to question her, you see, because she has — what did they call it? She is in the autism spectrum, so you can't disagree, you can't question, because she's not well.
This is a tactic that the Democrats use. They will go out and purposely find disabled people, they will make of them prominent political figures, and when they do that, I'm sorry, if they're going to put disabled people or any other kind of person in the political arena, they are converting them into a political figure. As such, they're going to be reacted to politically. I'm sorry, I speak for myself here, but I'm not going to lay down and ignore just because the Democrats are trying to run a trick to make all of us do just that. And what Trump said is not particularly mean, anyway. You're 16 years old, what are you doing getting all riled up about this? Chill out, go to some anger management, and see a movie. Enjoy your life.
And here come the Democrats, “How dare he?! What an ogre! What a mean guy!” And they want to impeach him for stuff like this. They can't believe — You know what it really is? They can't believe the American people aren't rejecting him because of this. They have put speech codes, they have enforced speech codes and behavioral codes on all of us. They have been slowly but surely taking away as much freedom as they can from the way we speak, from the way we behave, and even from the way we think. And they have gotten away with it because a lot of people of people are afraid to object to any of it.
So they go out and they find disabled people — they've used Michael J. Fox this way. They had him out there cutting television commercials for Democrat Senate candidates. “Can't respond, can't react, can't criticize, because he has Parkinson's, it's not fair, it's mean-spirited.” Sorry, it doesn't shut me up. I'm willing to pay the price for what they do. But it's a time-honored trick that they use.
But it is really why they hate him, and it is really why they're doing all this impeachment. They hate him, he gets away with violating all of their mandates and all of their codes. He is standing up to their attempts to take away, bit by bit, individual freedoms and liberties so that they can control as much of the population as possible. And the American people are not upset by it. And they're not demanding that he be thrown out of office. They're so ticked off.
