Law-Breaking California Liberals Remind Me of Similar Times in American History
Rush ^ | March 8, 2018 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 03/08/2018 12:40:16 PM PST by Kaslin

RUSH: I was watching on CNN today. The Democrats have a genuine, radical, off-the-wall analyst/strategist named Cardona, Maria Cardona or something. She’s debating some guy on immigration and sanctuary cities, and she was really all over ICE. She says (summarized), “ICE, it’s like the Gestapo! I mean, they’re not… They’re not just focusing on the criminal illegals. They’re focusing on the people who are here without papers too!” I’m saying, “Well, what the hell are they if they’re not illegal?”

As though we’re supposed to ignore that particular illegality, being here illegally and only go after those who have committed felony crimes after having arrived here? And she wanted to criticize ICE and call ’em a bunch of bad names because they’re not just rounding up people who committing felonies. They’re rounding up people who haven’t committed any crimes at all except that they’re here “without papers.”

That’s another way of saying they’re here illegally. You know, I’ve been looking at this immigration document. But I made a prediction yesterday. Grab audio sound bite No. 1. This thing with sanctuary cities — particularly California, but in other places that are sanctuary cities, sanctuary states — is beginning to remind me of something. It is eerie. It is eerie the similarities that it’s reminding me of. But first, a prediction I made yesterday.

RUSH ARCHIVE: I’m gonna tell you what the left is gonna do. I’m gonna predict to you right now the reaction to Jeff Sessions and his appearance in Sacramento today and the announced lawsuit. The way the left will react is to not engage on the issue. They will not mount a defense of sanctuary states or cities because they can’t. What they’ll do instead is start calling Trump and Sessions white supremacists trying to reinstate white supremacy, which is how this nation was founded, they will say. What Trump and Sessions really don’t like is people of color, is what they will say. Sessions from Alabama, they will wink, wants to talk to us about people of color? Ha, they will say. And of course Trump, they’ll say, “Remember Charlottesville, Trump is one of these guys, white supremacists, likes the Nazis.” This is what they’re gonna say.

RUSH: When I’m right — which is most of the time — I’m right. This is late yesterday afternoon on Headline News with Michaela Pereira talking to Kevin de Leon. He’s the head of the California Senate. He’s a state senator. Yeah, he was asked by Michaela Pereira, “What do you say to Sessions when he says that allowing sanctuary cities essentially hampers the freedom of Californians, endangers law enforcement? How do you respond to that? Are you endangering law enforcement?”

DE LEON: He’s taking gangs as well as MS-13 gang members, and he’s conflated that with hardworking mothers and fathers. Mothers who take care of other people’s children, who, uh, are housekeepers like my mother, uh, who was a housekeeper all of her life, hardworking men who cut our grass, who grow our food, who serve us in the restaurant, he’s conflating them with these hardened criminal, uh, felons. And the bottom line is this — I’ve said this since last year — that you have a president and an attorney general that is basing their policies on white supremacy. And that tears up the fabric of who we are.

RUSH: See? See? Right there! Did I not predict it. It’s white supremacy, all because we want to enforce the law. Charge “white supremacy” and never engage in the issue. By the way, what is this cutting the grass business? Pelosi made a big deal about that when talking about a border wall. I mean, she was off of her rocker which, sadly, appears to be becoming normal. He’s talking about mowing the grass, now Kevin De Leon talks about mowing the grass. But, anyway, there you heard it, white supremacy.

“A president, attorney general basing their policies on white supremacy.” No, sir. We’re basing it on the rule of law, which you are flouting. The rule of law, which you are urinating all over, the rule of law, which you are breaking. The rule of law, which you are ignoring. And here’s the mayor of Oakland, Libby Schaaf, who, by the way, this babe used to work… She was an assistant to Jerry Brown when he was the mayor of Oakland! This guy been the mayor of Oakland, now he’s the mayor of San Francisco, the governor of California. This was in city hall at Oakland yesterday after Sessions made his remarks at the law enforcement meeting there in Sacramento.

SCHAAF: His comments were so consistent with this racist distraction, this fearmongering that others, newcomers, outsiders are making our country less safe.

RUSH: You are making the country less safe. You are violating the law! You are shielding felons. You are warning felons how to avoid apprehension, according to federal law. There’s nobody here more guilty than you, Mayor Schaaf, and Governor Brown and everybody in this state who supports and enforces the sanctuary movement. You have nothing to fall back on. You can shout “white supremacy.” You can shout “racism.” You can shout all of these things, but it doesn’t get to the heart of the issue, which is that you are violating the law.

And here again, they want you to believe it’s because they care about people. “Outsiders, newcomers…” They don’t care about people. They’re not doing this — the sanctuary city movement is not — because they care about people. It is not because they care about having… Well, it may be because they want the grass mowed, but it’s not because they care about people. They say it is. They get away with that, but they don’t care about people.

If they did, they would care about the danger their citizens are in.

They would care about the economic mess their citizens face.

If they really cared about people. It’s not that they care about people. It’s that they have other purposes and uses for these people, and one of those purposes is simply to irritate the right wing. One of these purposes is seriously nothing more than a nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah to us. But they don’t care about people. They get away with it. They supposedly are the lone practitioners of compassion. That is a myth. Here is Governor Brown yesterday in Sacramento talking about Sessions’ remarks…

BROWN: This is really unprecedented for the chief law enforcement of the United States to come out to California and act more like Fox News than a law-enforcement officer. This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy. It’s not wise, it’s not right and it will not stand.

Gov. Brown offers fiery rebuke of Jeff Sessions' speech

RUSH: What does Fox News have to do with it? What in the name of Sam Hill does Fox News have to do with it? I tell you, they will not engage on the issue. He came out there as a lawmaker! He came out there, Sessions arrived as a law enforcement officer and he said, “It’s not gonna stand anymore. California, time is up, you are not gonna continue to get away with breaking the law.” What does Fox News have to do with it? See?

They don’t engage on the issue. Governor Brown thinks this is a great polemic because that will organize and unify the people of his state because ostensibly they all hate Fox News. “Basically going to war against state of California”? Well, I haven’t looked at it that way, but if he wants to, we have more guns than you do ’cause half of your guns, you’ve thrown away. Half your guns, you have been taking away from people. You want a war?

And that takes me to what I find eerie about all of this.

The eerie similarities to a period long ago in American history.


RUSH: Rush Limbaugh off to a rousing start today. Because every start is rousing in the EIB Network. New in the bumper rotation: Me and the Devil, by Gil Scott Heron.

This reminds me of an eerie time in American history. There are so many analogies I could make. I could see Jerry Brown as Lester Maddox and George Wallace in reverse. I could see the state of California as a slave state, wishing to exist in violation of federal law — California as the equivalent of a slave state versus the United States. The United States is attempting to preserve the union. Donald Trump is attempting to preserve the union, preserve the borders, has tried to preserve the sanctity of federal law.

California is even talking about secession and has been for a while. If you look at California as a modern-day slave state where the Democrats of today just as the Democrats of the 1800s, they want to hold on to their slaves. In this case, they want to hold on to their illegals so they can get their grass mowed. Many of them can’t read or write. They work cheap, can’t take care of themselves — and in this case, they don’t mind being the slaves. They’re happy! It’s not a pure analogy, but it will suffice. And Jerry Brown wants a war! He’s angry at American aggression. It’s eerie how similar this is!


RUSH: I understand the analogy is not perfect. That’s why I didn’t call it an analogy. I said the similarities are eerie. During the Civil War, the Southerners called it the War of Northern Aggression. The government, the north, would not leave ’em alone and let them run their affairs the way they wanted. And one of the things they wanted was to maintain slavery.

So the 12 million to 15 million, however, who are truly illegal, according to the Democrats, they’re really not. They just don’t have papers. And a bunch of mean, racist white supremacists are trying to be mean to them and throw them out of the country, when in truth the rule of law is the glue that holds this country together, and we have a state and we have some cities who are threatening it and flouting it. And you can’t ignore that. Something has to be done about that.

If you let this kind of law be gotten away with with no punishment, no attempt to hold any accountable, then you’re gonna lose control of your own law. And particularly if the people breaking that law get away with doing it because of compassion? ‘Cause they ostensibly care about people? Okay. So that’s the license to break the law? “Well, I care about this person. I can’t see this person having to be held accountable to the law. I care about ’em too much.” Where does that end?

But the truth of the matter is this is all political. Every bit of it is political, with the modern-day Democrat Party now outside the law. Happily, proudly outside the law and recommending it to others. That can’t last long, folks.

They’re rounding up people who haven’t committed any crimes at all except that they’re here “without papers.”

The Reconquista crowd keeps putting the government in a smaller and smaller box. This issue is you can’t deport anyone who has not committed anther crime. so she says they’re just undocumented as if they re untouchable till they commit a felony.

these corrupt commie type political hacks are DESPISED by most of the voters ...including many of the ones that elect them

the voters pick familiar names...when there are no visible real alternatives....

the california GOP-e is a big waste of time, totally toothless, sort of a private drinking and golfing club... and it generally nominates candidates who are obviously NOT worth voting for...
and the public recognizes it.

So how do we fast-forward to a Tecumseh “Uncle Billy” Sherman solution, and conclude this issue?

It’s the Reconquista using the s***-for-brains American Left as useful idiots. It’s as simple as that.

Words have meaning, they can be used as a political tool., a tool Conservatives don’t ot can’t understand. Example: Abortion to a Democrat is “Choice”, Illegals are “Dreamers”, Welfare is “Entitlements”. When the word “Liberal” is used, a person conjures up a goofy, Grandmotherly type hippie that went to Woodstock and occasionally smokes Marijuana. Calling Leftist, totalitarian, Marxist Communist “Liberals” is to Blunt their danger. Calling these c****suckers what they are. They are not “Liberals’, they would happily send you and your family to re-education camps. Wake Up

Tecumseh Sherman was WAY ahead of his time. He said that ALL Journalists should be shot because they always gave away their position and continue to report even in hell.

I recall another thing about history - the South promising that electing Lincoln would be unacceptable and illegitimate and that if it came to pass the wheels would come off.

CA wants to leave?

Well, bye - that means 55 Democrat EV go poof! as well as a third of the Democrat House delegation and 2 Democrat senators.

We don’t need a liberal sh*thole dragging America down along with it.

Just because they are prioritizing those who have committed other crimes does not mean that they should ignore the rest of the illegals.

Huge national security problem with California secession.

Let’s assume California votes to secede. A nascent nation as California would be will in need of protection from outside powers like the USA. There is no guarantee the California National Guard will remain loyal to just California, it will likely fragment. California will need protection, its not going to get it from Mexico. California leftists will turn to China. China is already heavily invested in California, they will move in a heartbeat(Does anyone on this site really believe that California leftists won’t invite them in?) Now you have an aggressive China at the Rockies instead of on the other side of the Pacific. We will then likely lose Hawaii & Guam. (The Hawaii independence movement would be greatly strengthened!) Our position as a Pacific power will be severely compromised. All the Pacific rim nations will now be looking to make accommodations with China. There will be enormous pressure on Australia and New Zealand we would compromise the security of two of the Anglosphere powers.

California secession feels go to say it, but its a dangerous idea for the rest of us. Best thing to do is if they try. Is to go in crush it and break California up into two or three states after a lengthy reconstruction period. (See how liberals like Reconstruction!)
