RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): This reminds me of an eerie time in American history. There are so many analogies I could make. I could see Jerry Brown as Lester Maddox and George Wallace in reverse. I could see the state of California as a slave state, wishing to exist in violation of federal law — California as the equivalent of a slave state versus the United States. The United States is attempting to preserve the union. Donald Trump is attempting to preserve the union, preserve the borders, has tried to preserve the sanctity of federal law.
California is even talking about secession and has been for a while. If you look at California as a modern-day slave state where the Democrats of today just as the Democrats of the 1800s, they want to hold on to their slaves. In this case, they want to hold on to their illegals so they can get their grass mowed. Many of them can’t read or write. They work cheap, can’t take care of themselves — and in this case, they don’t mind being the slaves. They’re happy! It’s not a pure analogy, but it will suffice. And Jerry Brown wants a war! He’s angry at American aggression. It’s eerie how similar this is!
