RUSH: Look, I know that it’s probably not a hundred percent, but all of these people in the NFL, I mean, what political party do you think they vote for and support? (interruption) Well, no wait. (interruption) Now, wait just… (interruption) Before you… (interruption)
Snerdley is in there going, “No, no, no, no! Don’t go there! Don’t.” Wait just a second. Whenever there is a school shooting somewhere, the first thing the media does is try to establish a Tea Party connection, right? Brian Ross, ABC News, at a shooting in Colorado. The first thing he did was go to a roster of Tea Party members and try to find the killer’s name.
Whenever there is an incident like this — any kind of a mass murder, shooting, what have you — the media does everything it can to link all of those to either talk radio or the Tea Party or conservatism or what have you. So I think it’s only tit-for-tat here to be asking: All the people involved in all of these scandals, what is the likelihood that they vote Democrat? It would have to be pretty good.
I’m sure there are some exceptions, don’t misunderstand. But, I mean, they’re with this phony, totally manufactured War on Women, yet who is it that’s really conducting one? Who is it that really, apparently, doesn’t have a whole lot of respect for women? It’s a bunch of people that vote Democrat, is it not? It’s a bunch of people that likely vote Democrat. I’m telling you, folks, all those times…
Remember when Gabby Giffords was shot at a public appearance out in Arizona. They, in the media, tried to link it to me and something that Sarah Palin had on her website. They try to link stuff like this to talk radio every time it happens. They salivate over the possibility! But it really hit the point of ridiculousness when Brian Ross actually went on Good Morning America and said that it is likely and highly possible that one of the shooters at some incident Colorado was a member of the Tea Party.
He didn’t wait for any of that to be produced by fact. He started with that premise! He was hoping that was going to be the case, or somebody who assigned him to look at it did. Don’t really know. Could have been an assignment editor, producer, what have you. But this is not supposition. I mean, we can pretty much figure out by virtue of demographics and race and statistical analysis how some of these people are voting and who they’ve voted for.
Remember the Republican convention I think it was in Houston in 1992? Remember when Woody Allen, it was revealed, had had an affair with his stepdaughter? I remember back then a bunch of people said, “The Democrat Party has Woody Allen social values,” or whatever. And everybody said, “You can’t say that!” Why not? He votes Democrat. Why not? He’s a liberal.
You guys make it up about us all the time. I know what some of you are saying. “Mr. Limbaugh, this does not advance the notion of comity and cooperation to simply play tit-for-tat.” I’m not trying to advance comity and getting along with the other I’d side. I’m interested in beating them, and the aggressor in any conflict sets the rules.
