RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): What do the Congressional Budget Office and the National Weather Service have in common? Well, you could call it fake but certainly some of the wackiest forecasting that we have ever encountered. Do you realize they canceled 8,000 flights in the Northeast for what's going to turn out to be four to eight inches of snow? And I know what you're going to say. “That's OK, Rush, they got the forecast right, they just missed by a couple hundred miles where." But the intensity of the snow, there is a blizzard there, but it's upstate inland New York, not New York City. Look, I understand all that. But, folks, there's something going on here, and we have to face it. We made everybody afraid of everything. We literally have instilled a crisis mentality and a fear culture throughout our country.
Our current culture has managed to make people afraid of everything except, of course, the one thing they should really fear. And that is runaway rampant, radical socialism, communism, call it what you will. That's what ought to make people afraid. One hundred million people have been killed by radical socialist regimes and governments in the history of the world. Climate change hasn't killed anybody yet.
Global warming hasn’t killed anybody, it hasn’t killed any polar bears, it hasn’t killed any penguins or any of that.
