Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh has long been known as someone who doesn’t take crap from anyone. He tells it like it is, without fear.
And that’s exactly what Limbaugh did over the weekend when he dropped a bombshell on socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her congressional allies.
During an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Limbaugh said he was cheering on Ocasio-Cortez and her “Squad” — Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley — because they are “bankrupt” of ideas.
Sticking with the theme, Limbaugh said the socialist “Squad” are “bankrupt” ideas and that their angry rhetoric will only help President Donald Trump and Republicans in the 2020 election.
Rush predicted their socialist ideas and refusal to debate real issues will only “destroy” the Democrats and “unify the Republicans.”
“The Democratic Party is bankrupt. It’s devoid of ideas that appeal to people,” he said.
“They cannot even join us in the arena of ideas to debate the great things and issues we all face. Instead, all the Democratic Party can do — with their leadership in the media — is try and destroy their political opponents. To try and discredit them and marginalize them. They never join us in the debate,” he added.
“Meanwhile, look what’s happening with substantive things like the economy and employment, particularly for minorities,” Rush said.
Limbaugh rounded out his comments by arguing that Democrats are too obsessed with removing Trump from office to notice that the American people support many of Trump’s policies.
Rush said they’ll be punished by voters for this in the election.
“There wasn’t even a reason to impeach, they were just impeaching to do it,” Rush said.
He added: “I say, let them continue. I hope they continue to illustrate how wacko, how morally bankrupt and substantively bankrupt they are. That’s why I hope Omar keeps talking. That’s why I hope Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez keep talking.”
“People are fed up, I think, hearing how rotten their country is,” he said later in his appearance. “And they’re fed up hearing the media give those people an additional platform to broadcast their hate and their disgust with the country.”
Watch the clip below:
Limbaugh’s not the only one predicting Ocasio-Cortez’ “bankrupt” rhetoric will secure a victory for conservatives in the 2020 election.
Several high-ranking Democrats are sounding the alarm after an internal poll shows that Ocasio-Cortez and Omar have become the “definitional face” for the Democratic Party with a group of swing voters that will be crucial in the election.
The poll, taken in May, found that “The Squad” are incredibly unpopular with general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of a college education.
This huge block of voters is so crucial because they are the “white, non-college voters” who voted for Trump in 2016 and are desperately needed by Democrats if they want to win the presidency.
Here are some of the main findings:
- Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view.
- Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.
Socialism was viewed favorably by just 18 percent of the voters and unfavorably by a whopping 69 percent:
- Capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.
- “Socialism is toxic to these voters,” said the top Democrat.
Will this in mind, it’s clear to Rush and many others that voters will side with Trump long before they embrace socialism and the radical ideas being pushed by AOC and her gang.
