RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): You look at these young people, and some of this stuff that happened -- I paid attention to all of it when I had snatches of time, and looking at the reaction to Trump pulling out of the Paris accords and the reaction to Hillary Clinton, it's striking to me -- and I've been trying to figure out how to actually express this. It is -- it's worrisome, obviously, but it is striking to me the intense ignorance, bordering on stupidity, that seems to have become mainstreamed on the American left. The ease with which young people have been radicalized with anti-American drivel, and the way they have so eagerly embraced it and glommed onto it, they can't think, they have not been to critically think. They have simply been indoctrinated, and I think the people who've done it -- college professors, comedians, pop culture people -- I don't think, and will never, ever really know, but I don't believe that they ever really thought that their indoctrination would lead to this degree of insanity and wacko-ism, stupidity, and ignorance.
I think they thought they were creating armies of voters for Democrats, but I don't think they were intending to create an uncontrollable army of absolute idiots. Now, I could be wrong, maybe the behavior by these wacko young people on the left is exactly what has been intended. I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case. But I think it’s, even for the people who propagandized all this and indoctrinated it, maybe out of hand, because I don't think -- it's now beyond control. There's no way to reach these people. They're just out on a limb. This climate change stuff, listening to what people said about us pulling out -- and it's not just young radicals, American CEOs are saying some of the stupidest things.
