Limbaugh: Here’s What ‘Send Her Back’ Really Stands For, by James Barrett.
Limbaugh began his discussion of the “send her back” moment by cuing up political commentator David Gergen on CNN declaring that “the Republicans are in an active slow self-destruction in supporting the president as much as they do, because in the long term, this could be suicidal.”
“Why is it not suicidal when Republicans get forcibly kicked out of, spat upon at restaurants?” asked Limbaugh. “Why is it not suicidal for the Democrats when Black Lives Matter advocates shooting cops? Why is it [not] suicidal for the Democrats when they defend Antifa? Most recent example in Oregon, Portland, Oregon, where the cops were ordered to stand aside while people were assaulted and businesses were destroyed. Why does none of that, why isn’t that ever said to be suicidal for the Democrats? Why does none of the stuff that makes ‘send her back’ pale in comparison, that pales in comparison to the actual activity, the assaults, the attacks, the damage done to businesses in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore, why does the media never say, ‘Man, this is not good for the Democrats, that’s a suicidal move.'”
“Let me just say at the outset, I don’t want to send her back,” said Limbaugh. “I want her to stay here! And I don’t want her to be silenced. I want Ilhan Omar to continue speaking, because it is working. Trump is winning this.”
Rush then moved to his explanations for why Trump supporters got behind the chant: They’re “fed up” with being told what they can and cannot say by the Left and tired of seeing the Left tear down the country and conservatives with impunity.
