I caught a few minutes of the beginning of the Rush Limbaugh show on the car radio today where Rush played a prediction that he made a few months before the 2016 election. In essence, he said that if Trump is elected on a platform of transfering power from Washington, D.C. to the people, he — or anyone else like him — will be tormented, hounded, harrassed, hated, smeared, lied about, threatened, and worse. The primary reason for this, said Rush, is to let everyone else know that that is exactly what will happen to you, too, if you try to limit the powers and privileges of the D.C. establishment.
Rush then played the words of a Texas Democrat congressman from a few days ago saying exactly that, even proclaiming that future Trumps should be handcuffed and hauled off to prison for life for even contemplating doint “what Trump did.”
I didn’t hear Limbaugh’s original prediction, but I made the same prediction in my mind after hearing his first inaugural address in which he said:
“We are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American people.”
“[A] small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.”
“Washington flourished — but the people did not share in its wealth.”
The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.”
He said this surrounded by the entire Washington establishment on inauguration day. That is why they spent every waking hour of every day for the past four years spewing vitriolic hate at Trump and his supporters. It doesn’t matter if he did not achieve the transfer of power to the people; merely saying such a thing in public was enough to ignite the everlasting hatred of the hordes of serpentine peons and psychopaths who populate the Washington swamp.
