Limbaugh Compares Democrats to Murderers and Rapists

This is the new figurehead of the GOP, rambling on about how the motivations of Democrats and/or liberals are as inexplicable as those of murderers and rapists, including "this Muslim guy [who] offed his wife's head." (Note his further claim that feminists are defending that murder on the basis that it's an honor killing, which is patently false.) And of course the implication is that Democratic/liberal policies are akin to murdering and raping the country. All of this while he gravely intones, "They must be stopped."

[Full transcript below.]

I'm not sure I can put into words how resoundingly, colossally objectionable it is to me to be compared to a murderer and a rapist—no less in the throes of inciting his listeners to stop people like me at any cost.

(With a tiny wee de-emphasized caveat about doing it within the "political arena of ideas.")

What a truly despicable shitsack he is.

Limbaugh: To answer your question, why do so many liberal Democrats want to basically tear apart and rebuild the country, it's 'cause they don't control enough of it to satisfy them. They want to—

Caller: They live here, too! I don't understand, like, they're not—

Limbaugh: Yes, but, well, they are gonna establish separate rules for themselves by which they live, such as they'll be able to not pay their taxes and work in government at high levels. Uh, they're not gonna be subject to whatever greenhouse gas laws there are. They're not gonna be subject to any of this sort of— They have— 'Cause they're too important, you see. Uh, and they all think they're part of the elite. Some of 'em are gonna get canned, some of them are gonna get the shaft here; they just don't know it.

Uh, but it's, it's, they— Forget Democrat. These people are liberal socialists now. They bear no resemblance to the Democrat Party of John Kennedy, for example.

Caller: No, you're right, you're right, I agree. I agree.


Limbaugh: It's about power. It's about control. These people genuinely look out over this country from their lofty perch; they don't like what they see! Otherwise—

Caller: Well then they can go somewhere else! Like, I don't understand, why do they have to stay here? Like, leave us alone!

Limbaugh: I don't— At this point, at this point, Gretchen, I don't care about the why. They're not gonna leave; they're trying to control it. At this point, the only thing is: They. Must. Be. Stopped.

Caller: I agree.


Limbaugh: Within, within the confines of our Constitution, and the political arena of ideas, they must be stopped. I don't care why they see this country the way they see it. I don't care why a murderer does it. I don't care why a rapist does it. I don't care why this Muslim guy offed his wife's head. The NOW gang's out there saying, "That's not domestic violence. That's just, uh, that's just, uh—" What'd they call it? Cultural honor killing! This woman was going to divorce him and that's against the law and that's his diversity. I don't care! I don't care why anymore. If I figure it out, I'll be glad to tell you because it's interesting to know, but it doesn't matter in terms of defeating them.
