Rush Limbaugh: 2016 Is Last Chance to Save American Culture
Conservative leader Rush Limbaugh warned his audience Tuesday that 2016 is the last chance for conservatives to save American culture.
Listener Pam from Brentwood, Tennessee called in to promote Marco Rubio. Pam claimed she was a longtime conservative listener but sounded more like a Rubio plant. Pam pushed Marco and urged conservatives to vote for Marco because Republicans need to reach out a hand and work with the Socialist-Democrats.
Rush was very respectful as he explained to Pam about the seriousness of the situation America faces and how this is the country’s last chance to fight off the Socialist onslaught of America. Rush is obviously not impressed with Marco’s positions.
This is probably the most important monologue Rush Limbaugh delivered in the past year.

RUSH: What he’s saying here is if we ever get to the point where we could secure the border and prove it and announce to the American people that no more illegals are getting across, certainly not en masse, that we’ve got it under control, he’s saying the American people I think will be very fair and understanding about the 12 million or whatever the number is that are here and would not want to deport them and would want to find a way to keep ’em here, keep ’em united with their families.
Now, over here, Trump: deport, deport, they gotta go, build a wall, no question about it. It’s the signature element of his campaign. Cruz has now joined that aspect of it by acknowledging that he would support deporting all 12 million. So this is clearly the establishment line here that Rubio has taken. And we’ll just have to wait and see how helpful or whatever else it ends up being…
…RUSH: Let me close the loop on something here ’cause I want to move on. I’ve got whole Democrat Stack here of things I want to get to. And I’m gonna do it. Not gonna get sidetracked here by a bunch of stuff I’ve already covered. Greetings. Welcome back. 800-282-2882 if you want to be on the program.
There’s a Breitbart News story, August 6th of 2015. “Marco Rubio says he wants border fence, visa tracking system, but voted against both to pass the Gang of Eight bill.” And then from the article it says this: “When the Schumer-Rubio bill hit the Senate floor, Sen. John Thune offered an amendment to required the completion of a border fence. Sen. Rubio joined all members of the Gang in voting against Thune’s amendment, which failed.
“Likewise, with respect to the implementation exit-entry tracking system, Sen. Rubio voted against an amendment offered by Sen. Vitter (R-LA), which would require the implementation of exit-entry tracking system in order to prevent foreign nationals from illegally overstaying their visas.” This is all about this E-Verify system and the E-Verify card that would be handed out. “Similarly, the Schumer-Rubio immigration bill did not require the immediate implementation e-verify.”
Now, what Rubio said to Bill O’Reilly is that these illegal aliens will pay a fine and pay back taxes. Now, Rubio’s not the only one who said that. People who have — (sigh) this is very hard. I can’t win. I tell people what they don’t know and they don’t want to hear it. But this business of leaving the country, getting back in line, paying fines and back taxes and so forth, it sounds good, but when the time comes it’s never gonna happen.
Let me draw you an analogy. It’s like Schumer. Whenever they talk about amnesty, they always say, “Don’t worry, it’s not going to include citizenship.” Right. It won’t. I believe that, until the next day. After Schumer gets his bill passed that grants amnesty, it won’t be long before he finds a camera and microphone and starts talking about the mistake they just made. And it’ll be along the lines of compassion. “How could we have overlooked this,” he will say, or something like it.
“We have just voted a system whereby the 12 million who are here can stay. But we’re not gonna let them vote? It’s outrageous. It’s simply outrageous. How could we have forgotten it? These people have been here for who knows how many years, and they have been paying their taxes and they’ve been working in America, they have joined the military, they’ve become full-fledged citizens every way except legally, and now we’re not gonna let them vote,” and that’s how that’ll happen, and it will be bleeding heart again. Because at the end of the day what this is — and this is the crux of the issue, and this is why it has been universally opposed by everybody in the Republican Party except for elected Republicans and the Chamber of Commerce.
Whatever you want to call it, some people now say don’t use the word “amnesty” because it’s lost its oompff and it actually has a negative connotation because it’s a tired, worn-out word. Whatever works, the objective of the Democrat Party is to take whatever people are in this country illegally and allow them to vote. That’s all this is about. Everything else is a smoke screen. It’s not about uniting families or keeping them united. It’s not about compassion. It’s not about economics. It’s not about any of it. It’s about expanding the Democrat Party voter rolls. All it is is a Democrat Party voter regulation program. And everybody talks all around it…
… And now we’ve closed the circle. And now we’re back at why Donald Trump is in the race and why Donald Trump is running away with it. You can get as deep or as shallow in the analysis as you want. But it’s about a last chance, a last-gasp effort at preserving the culture that developed after the founding of this country. It’s no more complicated than that, folks. The country’s under siege from all quarters, and recently the Democrat Party has joined those who have put the country under siege.
Now, in this instance I’m not even talking about anything other than perception right now. Candidates go out and say or do anything, the perception that people have of what they say or do is going to largely determine the reaction. They’re not gonna spend time going deep and deep into, “Well, what they really meant was…” They’re gonna knee-jerk react because that’s how important the issue is. They’re not going to take any chances with it.
So if somebody comes along and says, “I’m gonna deport 12 million.”
“Fine. I hear you, and I hope to hell you’re telling me the truth, because I support you.”
“I’m gonna deport ’em. They gotta go.” Donald Trump. “They gotta go. I’m gonna build a wall. Who’s gonna pay for the wall? Mexico.” Right. They’re not taking the time to ask if he really means it. They’ve already decided that he does. It’s that important to a lot of people. It’s about preserving a distinct American culture which is under assault, which is under siege. And it’s being brought to us by the Democrat Party, which is trying to register all kinds of new voters all the time ’cause they need a permanent underclass of people incapable of taking care of themselves, incapable of providing for themselves who will always be counted on to vote Democrat to be taken care of.
And under these circumstances, people scratch their heads to this day and cannot understand why a single Republican would ever sign on to this. And if you want to know what happens to Republicans that do, the name is Jeb Bush. A hundred million dollars, and it may actually be $115 million could not erase the baggage that Jeb Bush was carrying around, that people assumed he was for amnesty. It’s that simple. That’s what happens. That’s where we are…
…It’s not just immigration, but it’s the biggie. There’s all kinds of other associated, ancillary issues that comprise this. There’s some other things to add to it, just adds a couple exclamation points.
Daily Caller: “Almost 60% of Democrats Think Socialism Is Great for America.” Remember what this is about, now. It’s about preserving the original American culture — and make no mistake: It’s under siege, and has been for a while, and it’s losing. “A clear majority of Democrats believe socialism has a ‘positive impact on society,’ according to a poll by the American Action Network (AAN).
“The political and economic system that wreaks havoc across the world from Venezuela to North Korea is enjoying widespread support in the modern Democratic Party.” Socialism is a fraud. It’s never worked. But it’s seductive. “A telephone poll of 1,000 likely Democratic primary voters found that when capitalism and socialism were polled head to head, socialism won by percentage points, with just 25% of respondents saying they favored capitalism.”
This is not a poll of college students, folks. These were likely Democrat primary voters. In other words: The Democrat base. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are not the radical fringe the Democrat Party. They represent rank-and-file mainstream Democrats now. That’s just one poll. There is yet another poll. This one is a poll fielded by a Republican firm called OnMessage Inc., and it basically has the same results. It starts out, “Maybe Newsweek was right some time ago, ‘We are all socialists now.'”
Democrat voters — every age-group, every gender, every race — view socialism favorably, according to the poll. This is within the Democrat Party. I saw on television the other day a woman, a Democrat being interviewed about this very thing. And the reporter expressed shock. And the Democrat woman (she was in her forties), said, “Why? We have socialism now,” and she listed off the things. “We got Medicaid. We have Obamacare,” and she listed off all kinds of federal programs that, to her, “We have socialism now, and I like it…
… It’s not about a great country to them. It’s not about the American people doing the best they can do for themselves. That’s actually bad news for the Democrat Party, because all that means is people don’t need government, people don’t need the Democrats, people don’t want them, they’re not dependent. Bad, bad news. Can’t have that. Why do you think Ted Kennedy decided to reinstitute amnesty and illegal immigration during Reagan’s second term? They had to undermine it somehow. And we went along with it because we accepted a promise that we would secure the border and those three million in 1986 would be it. And here we are talking 12 million, which I think is probably closer to 15 or 20 million.
In the midst of abundance, in the midst of economic prosperity like we hadn’t known since the postwar boom, the Democrat Party was trying to tear it down and succeeded. There isn’t a Jesus Christ running that’s gonna unify everybody. And I hate to say it, Jesus Christ didn’t, either. Unity is one of these things that sounds wonderful, sororities love it, fraternities pretend to love it so they can get inside the sororities, but it’s nothing more than a dream. This is a world governed by the aggressive use of power, the aggressive use of force, and if you want to maintain both, you have to fight for it each and every day. It’s never permanently won. You never permanently convert people…
