(National Sentinel)Â Civil Society: Conservative talk behemoth Rush Limbaugh, not prone to hyperbole, made a dire observation during his radio program Friday: As evidenced by the attacks against traditional American culture and history by the Alt-Left, America appears “on the cusp of a second civil war.”
He went on to insist thatÂ much of the angst was being driven by forces from the outside wanting to see the United States cease being a â€œsuper powerful nation.â€
Per his web site, here’s a partial transcript of his comments and observations:
America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen in my life. And Iâ€™m sure itâ€™s the same with you. We havenâ€™t seen anything like this. You might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war. Some of you might say that we are already into it, that it has already begun. However you characterize it, though, we are under attack from within. And itâ€™s being bought and paid for by people from outside America, in addition to inside.
Iâ€™m thinking of people like George Soros and any other number of international financiers whose objective it is to take the United States out and down as a superpower, to literally erase the United States as a powerful or super powerful nation.
Now, folks, in order to defend America, which I believe is incumbent upon all of us, in order to defend America, you have to begin knowing our history. If youâ€™re gonna defend the United States of America, you have to know our history. You have to know the purpose of the United States of America. You have to know unequivocally and proudly the United Statesâ€™ place in history. And that is why erasing and distorting our history is crucial for the left to succeed.
None of this that is happening on the left is random. None of the riots, none of the protests. They are not the result of the left being offended by individual acts. Antifa didnâ€™t show up in Charlottesville because they found out something was going to happen that offended them. They showed up in Charlottesville to create mayhem and cause hell. They showed up in Ferguson, Missouri, to do the same thing.
They showed up in Baltimore to do the same thing â€” and wherever they show up today and tomorrow and next week, itâ€™s by design, on purpose, has an objective and an agenda. And that agenda is to erase American history. …
If enough Americans can be persuaded of all of that â€” that America is inherently racist, that America is and has been a lie â€” then itâ€™s over. That is the objective, and we are in the midst of it. Sometimes youâ€™re so close to the forest you donâ€™t see the trees. Thatâ€™s what we are in the midst of here: An ongoing effort to erase America by discrediting the entire premise of our culture, our history, our founding. The objective is to create in as many American minds as possible that America as founded is not worth defending. Serious times.
This is a very, very serious effort that is underway. Sadly, it has a lot of allies. …
The attacks on Trump, the characterization of his presidency, is designed to show how really flawed America is. That somebody like this could be elected, that means itâ€™s time to get rid of the Constitution. That means itâ€™s time to getâ€¦ Whatever made Trump possible, itâ€™s time to change it and get rid of it. This is very, very serious stuff happening here, and it has the aid and support of the media, which means it has the aid and support of the worldwide left and the Democrat Party.
Americaâ€™s profound morality, kindness, widespread prosperity, and design for equal opportunity should be self-evident. But that assumes that factual, historically accurate reporting in education is taking place, and we know that it isnâ€™t. It is a shame and a near crime that the profound morality and greatness and kindness and widespread prosperity and equal opportunity that is America isnâ€™t known. It is a crime that those characteristics of our country are in the process being recast and erased. We are getting hysterically inaccurate reporting.
We have been in the midst of hysterically inaccurate education for generations. America is unique. America copied no other country. Every other country was a copycat of others, with governments that denied individual freedom, denied opportunity, denied sovereignty. Thatâ€™s what was copied. Tyranny was copied, nation to nation, people to people. That is the history of humanity: Living in tyranny, living under authoritarianism, living in poverty, living in sickness â€” until the United States came along, which copied nothing.
The United States and its founders rejected all of that tyranny, oppression, poverty. In America, the individual was the supreme power. That is being erased under the premise that the individual is corrupt. The individual is likely a racist or a transphobe or a homophobe or some other ill-prepared sack of humanity, and so we need to overcome the corruption that is the individual, that incomparable embrace of humanity that is the United States of America.
Thereâ€™s no place on this planet that human beings would rather be than the United States of America. And yet people born and raised in this country have been persuaded that America is a sinkhole, a hellhole, a sewer, a garbage dump, or a dungeon, and theyâ€™re in the process of actually creating all of that â€” under the guise that civil rights, equality, and liberty. The incomparable embrace of humanity that is the United States is under attack. Leftists, Democrats seek control over 100% of the population. They accomplish this with lies, such as the Affordable Health Care Act.
They accomplish it with one lie after another. …
The media is working on a path parallel with school systems to actively and passively distort information to wipe out from the vestiges of our history and our memory any collection of stories that testify to the greatness of America and her people.
