Conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh on Friday warned that the United States is well on its way to a second Civil War, and he places direct blame on
“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 I’m sure it’s the same with you. We haven’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 it’s being bought and paid for by people from outside America, in addition to inside.”
Limbaugh told his listeners that he believed left-wing hedge fund billionaire George Soros and other “international financiers” are continuously working toward the “objective” of taking America “down as a superpower,” in order to “erase the United States as a powerful or super powerful nation.”
During the Friday segment, Limbaugh noted the importance of fighting for U.S. history, and called on American citizens to rally and defend historical symbols and monuments.
Directly referring to the removal of controversial, Confederate monuments in the U.S., Limbaugh addressed U.S. citizens.
“Now, folks, in order to defend America, which I believe is incumbent upon all of us … you have to begin knowing our history,” Limbaugh said.
He continued, “If you’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 States’ place in history. And that is why erasing and distorting our history is crucial for the left to succeed.”
Limbaugh concluded the segment by accusing “left-wing” protesters — to include Antifa activists — of having an agenda to “distort, erase, and impugn [America’s] history.”
