Limbaugh Weighs In On Charlottesville: “Why In The World Is Only One Side Being Condemned?”
RUSH: I’ve had some of my friends today say, “You know, it’s the first day that I would not want to have your job.”
I said, “Really? Why?”
“Because I couldn’t say what I really think.” I had four or five people tell me this today.
And I said, “Well, sit by, stand by, let me show you how it’s done.”
What’s that? No, no, no, I’m telling you that Barack Obama invited Black Lives Matter to the White House and honored them after Ferguson and after Baltimore. You’re not supposed to mention that, but there were two sides to this thing.
I was talking to Mr. Snerdley today, and I have a serious question. I understand completely the need to condemn the Klan and these neo-Nazis and these white supremacists and these idiots. And I’m really interested in why these people are becoming this way, because I think there are answers that will tell us a lot. There are just too many young men with too much time on their hands and too much ill influence is over this country. I understand it.
It ticks me off these people exist. It ticks me off that we have to deal with neo-Nazis and people fascinated with this stuff, and white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan. But let’s remember something. They want to take down all these monuments. In fact, get this. Richmond, Virginia: “A Confederate Heritage Organization has asked Virginia for permission to hold a rally in September at the Robert E. Lee monument in Richmond.”
After this weekend, after all of this, we have a Confederate group heritage organization that has asked for a permit to gather at the Robert E. Lee monument. Now, what do you think is going on here? The point is that it’s not just the neo-Nazis and it’s not just the white supremacists and it’s not just these groups, but there’s a whole other range of similar hate groups on the left that are just as guilty and are just as invasive and probably more violent.
And I asked Snerdley today, “Could somebody explain to me why in the world only one side here is being condemned?” And why when somebody dares mention that there was more than one side here, that person gets condemned? Let’s listen to the president’s statement on this, because this is the fuel that started this media fire and everything else, condemnation aimed at President Trump.
