The man whose talent is ‘on loan from God’ made some fantastic points on the Media (D)’s heartfelt tributes to Sen. John McCain.
CNN’s Jake Tapper said on Sunday,‘I can’t help but think that like part of the reason why there’s such reverence for him today is because of who’s in the White House right now because they are polar opposites.‘
Rush said that Tapper is right. The Media (D) is using the death of Senator John McCain as a new way to attack President Trump.
Rush reminds us that back in the mid-90s, the Media (D) loooved Sen. John McCain. He was their favorite Republican because of his ‘Maverick’ nature. They loved that he had the ‘courage’ to criticize his own party, his own party’s policies, and his own party’s presidents. McCain was the go-to Republican for the Media (D) in the George W. Bush years. He was on MSNBC almost as many times as Rep. Maxine Waters has said, ‘Impeach 45!‘
But that all changed rather suddenly in 2008.
When it became clear that McCain was going to seek a presidential run, Rush had warned the McCain camp that the Media (D) would turn on them, which they obviously did.
And all during this time — well, not all during it, but as we approached the year 2008 and it became clear that Senator McCain was going to seek the Republican nomination, I remember issuing a warning I don’t know how many times, but too many times to count here to Senator McCain and his campaign team, that the minute you seek the Republican nomination you are going to be cast aside by this media that has been fawning over you and loving you. You are going to become the enemy.
And, boy, did he, especially when Obama got the nomination and McCain got the Republican nomination. People have forgotten the long knives came out for McCain by all of these people in the media who had made it look like they loved and revered him — and they did. And the reason they did was because of the maverick personality and McCain’s willingness to criticize his own party. McCain’s willingness to talk about crossing the aisle, shaking hands, working together to get things done, the politics of compromise, because that always meant Republicans losing.
In those days, when we talked about Republicans compromising, what it meant was Republicans forgetting their agenda and signing on to the Democrat agenda. And it’s always been that way. There was nothing new about it then. And it was very frustrating for a lot of people that Senator McCain didn’t see it, or, if he did, thought that he could overcome it.
Well, then when they made the decision to pick Sarah Palin, folks, that ended any pretense of love and respect for Senator McCain. And then you make the Democrat nominee Obama, the first African-American presidential nominee, and McCain did not have a chance in the Drive-By Media. The people who had made him think they respected him, made him believe they loved him, cast him aside.
And now we’re in the Trump era… now McCain isn’t a threat anymore, so the Media (D) can revere him and compare him to the terrible, horrible, outrageously bad man that is now President.
Rush also cites Rep. John Lewis. The guy that didn’t go to President Trump’s Inauguration because of his principles.
Check out the flip-flop in his opinion of John McCain.
John Lewis got beat upside the head on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma during the great civil rights march. John Lewis tweeted on Saturday, “Senator John McCain was a warrior for peace. He will be deeply missed by people all around the world.” Well, let’s go back to Politico, October 11th, 2008, basically three weeks away from the presidential election. There’s a Politico story, and the headline is: “John Lewis, Invoking George Wallace, Says McCain and Palin ‘Playing with Fire’ —
“Civil rights icon and Georgia congressman John Lewis is accusing John McCain … of stoking hate, likening the atmosphere at Republican campaign events to those featuring George Wallace, the segregationist former governor of Alabama and presidential candidate. McCain’s campaign has responded with a statement in the candidate’s name, urging Barack Obama to repudiate Lewis’s comments. ‘What I am seeing reminds me too much of another destructive period in American history,’ Lewis said in a statement issued today for Politico’s Arena forum.
“‘Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse.’ Lewis didn’t accuse McCain of imitating Wallace, but suggested there were similarities.” Okay. This is one example, and it’s one of a plethora I could surface if I was to take the time, if I wanted to. But it makes the point. It provides the illustration. So after Senator McCain passes away, he becomes a good guy again in the eyes of John Lewis. “Senator John McCain was a warrior for peace. He will be deeply missed by people all around the world.”
Watch Rush make more sense than the entire Media (D) with half his brain tied behind his back:
Well, that just makes way too much sense.
And it’s just blatantly obvious.
You know what happens next?
They’re going to do the same darned thing with the next Republican that has enough ‘courage’ to criticize his party, his party’s policies, and his party’s presidents.
What the heck is going to happen when Trump is out of office and a new Republican takes the helm?
He’s not going to be so bad. This has been their playbook for decades.
Look at their nostalgia for Dubbya, whom they labeled as Hilter-lite.
There are already some on the left that don’t want Trump impeached because Vice President Mike Pence is going to turn America into Conservative Christian theocracy like in A Handmaid’s Tale. Pence is so much worse than Trump in their eyes.
It must be exhausting to be on the left.
I can’t hold onto that much outrage constantly.
I just want me a big ol’ cup o’ freedom and a slice of ‘Government, leave me the hell alone’.
And I’m not alone in that.
That’s why President Trump is a wanted man.
Trump isn’t just wanted by the Left who think that one day, they’ll finally nail him on some phantom ‘Russian Collusion’ allegation.
