Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh claimed on the air Tuesday that the American flag will “come under assault” after the Confederate flag because the left believes it stands for “everything that’s wrong with” the country.
"I have a prediction," Limbaugh began, later adding, "Do not doubt me."
“If you take a look at the timeline of progressive events, their speed and rapidity with which the left is conducting this assault on all of these American traditions and institutions, if you don’t think the American flag’s in their crosshairs down the road, you had better stop and reconsider,” Limbaugh continued.
His prediction isn’t for a future dystopian America as he said “it will not be long” before the American flag is referred to by the left as a “symbol of hate.” There is currently a bipartisan effort underway to remove the Confederate flag from the South Carolina Statehouse following a racially motivated mass shooting that left nine dead at a historically black church.
“It isn’t gonna be long before the American flag is gonna cause chills, fear, scary thoughts,” Limbaugh said.
He then mockingly impersonated his version of a liberal: “It’s gonna make me nervous, the American flag, when I see the American flag, it’s a symbol of hate.”
