Rush Limbaugh Makes A Dangerous Suggestion That Could Result In War

More News For You

What has happened to the United States of America? Our country has become more divided than ever over trivial issues.

I’d like to think that we as humans have become civil enough to put our differences aside for the greater good but this year has proven that’s not the case.

There are some people out there who use this tension to stoke fear just to get attention and ratings.

Rush Limbaugh is one of those people.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday suggested on his show that America was headed toward the conditions that resulted in the American Civil War after a caller asked whether conservatism would ever dominate U.S. culture again.

The host responded to the call, first noted by Media Matters, saying that he believed the country was “trending towards secession,” or the act in which states could attempt to leave the Union.

“I thought you were asking me something else when you said, ‘Can we win?’ I thought you meant, ‘Can we win the culture, can we dominate the culture.’ I actually think — and I’ve referenced this, I’ve alluded to this a couple of times because I’ve seen others allude to this — I actually think that we’re trending toward secession,” Limbaugh said.

It didn’t end there.

“It can’t go on this way,” he continued. “There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs. We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way.”

The notion that secession is the answer for the U.S. is ridiculous, to say the least, and installs a dangerous idea in the minds of those willing to take it that far.
