RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): Folks I have to tell you here, the Democrat Party is not just the country’s biggest hate group now, which I have said on previous occasions. Because that’s what they are, it is what they have become, they are a self-contained hate group. They have more hate than any extreme right-wing group they claim to be afraid of or opposed to than you could count. They have more hate than any of the hate that was at Charlottesville. They’ve got more hate for us -- the difference in the world is that their hatred for us is somehow justified, and promoted.
Because they are the biggest hate group in the country right now, and there’s no contest. There is no contest. The Democratic Party is a nationwide political party. It is bigger than any special interest group, it is bigger than any lobbying group, it is bigger than any 501(c)(3), it is bigger than any group at all out there, and since they are a hate group they are the kingpins of hate in the American political system.
They are the biggest threat to civil liberties, they are the biggest threat to freedom of speech, they are the biggest threat to the second amendment, they are the biggest threat to the innocence of unborn life, they are the biggest threat to anybody who is not one of them. They are the biggest threat to prosperity. They represent the biggest threat to private property. They represent the biggest threat to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that exists in this country today. The Democrat Party is that. That is what they have become.
They are a bigger hate group than the KKK which is always been the military, quote-unquote, wing of the Democrat Party anyway. There isn’t a right-wing group that can hold a candle to these people. The entire Democrat -- there is no grandfather, there is no reasonable place to go in the Democrat Party where you get some wisdom. There are no adults in that party telling these kids to stop behaving this way. They’re all on the same page now.
Their attitude, their views on abortion and human life is just shocking. There isn’t any comparison to the pro-life view and the pro-abort view that the Democrat Party has, and if you’re going to assign hate to one of those groups, you’re not going to find hate on the pro-life side. By definition, you can’t. But you can certainly find it on the so-called pro-choice side.
They seek control over life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and they do so from a position of rage and anger. They are angry that the concepts of life, liberty, pursuit of happiness exist. And their mission is obviously to shut them down. Whatever it takes, for example, to save the planet from things human beings cannot and never have been able to control. But it will allow them to control people all over the country if they ever do achieve their climate change objectives.
We all saw it last night. We all heard that last night. You ignore what you saw and you ignore what you heard last night at your own risk. We are one election away from the kind of dangerous rhetoric and behavior we saw last night -- tyranny -- taking over this country. One election away from it, folks. And it doesn’t matter which of those 20 people, if any of them, would win, doesn’t matter which one we’re talking about. They all are the same, they all represent the modern-day Democrat Party.
They all hate us and they all want to relegate us to a status of nonexistence and irrelevancy, and their hatred for us is propelling them. They believe that there is more hatred for us than there is support for us.
