After a very contentious election, one in which thousands unhappy with the result of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory are out in the street protesting, there have been calls from numerous corners of the country for unification.
On his syndicated radio show Thursday, conservative icon Rush Limbaugh explained that he is not sure he wants the kind of “unification” people are calling for.
“We have all these riots going on, exactly as I predicted,” he said.

“And, folks, aside from these little snowflakes that are melting on campus today, the kids, all of these riots that you’re seeing in New York and Philadelphia and Chicago and Los Angeles are bought and paid for. They are not real in terms of springing up genuinely and organically.”
Limbaugh said this illusion of a “tipping point” should not be indulged by the right.
“We know that all of the protests at Trump rallies were bought and paid for primarily by George Soros, but by the Democrat Party,” he said. “We are still being treated by the media to a picture be America that isn’t true. They want you to believe that a majority of Americans is fit to fit to be tied and angry over the election of Donald Trump and as one of which we can never unify unless Trump caves on everything in order to get peace. That’s what they’re trying to make everybody think, and that’s what’s making me nervous, when I hear so many on our side talk about now the need to cross the aisle and the need to unify.”

Limbaugh said to “unify” in this way would be a mistake. Instead, the right should make them surrender.
“The time to unify is after we have forced them into surrender just like we did the Japanese in World War II. But the days of unifying with the losers because they’re mad and we don’t want the media saying mean things about us … they lost. And, folks, they have been losing since 2010,” he said.
Limbaugh added that it was never the left’s policies that attracted voters to Obama because his policies were beaten not only in midterm elections, but also with the defeat of Hillary Clinton.
“His policies were unilaterally rejected in this election, folks,” Limbaugh said. “The presidency of Barack Obama was sent packing. That is exactly what was on the ballot, and with his own words, if you recall. Part of his campaign — his ego couldn’t help it — he’s out there campaigning (imitating Obama), ‘My legacy is all about this. My issues are on the ballot. Hillary Clinton represents a continuation of everything and all the progress we made.’”
So what was the message delivered in this year’s election?
“The Democrat Party and the agenda of Barack Obama were entirely, totally repudiated in this election, as was the Democrat Party,” Limbaugh said.
The popular talk show host also said the election proves the Democratic party is in trouble and there is no reason for conservatives to let them off the hook.

“Six million fewer Democrats showed up to vote for a person who thought she was going to be coronated, so loved and adored we were told she was by the Democrat Party. She had to steal her own nomination from Bernie Sanders,” he said.
“Folks, we are lied to every day by the Democrat Party, which is the media. We are lied to about how we are viewed in the country. We are lied to about how they are viewed. We are lied to about how the country loves their policies and loves them.”￼
