Rush Limbaugh’s radio program was the original starting point for conservative media.
Liberals spent years trying to silence Rush.
And Rush Limbaugh just faced the one big threat that could take him off the air for good.
Rush Limbaugh and other conservative media stars like Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Laura Ingraham have questioned the wisdom of government-mandated lockdowns that shutoff the economy and led to 22 million Americans losing their job.
These lockdowns sent the American economy crashing to Great Depression levels as 22 million Americans lost their jobs.
During a recent broadcast, Limbaugh attacked the rationale behind these lockdowns and explained that the American people were going to end them sooner rather than later because they were unsustainable.
“It’s not normal to stay cooped up at home and have your livelihood taken away from you. It is not normal to just sit there in a docile state and accept it. It just isn’t normal,” Limbaugh began.
“They’re gonna look at nothing in the refrigerator, and they’re gonna look at nothing to pay the rent with,” the conservative talk show host added. “These are real-world things, real-world realities. There’s nothing theoretical about this anymore. It’s undoable. It’s unsustainable. And the people that still have income coming in, people that still have financial reserves to rely on making policy for people who have none, ain’t gonna fly. So it only stands to reason that the American people … will decide when this lockdown is over.”
But one conservative talk show host disagreed.
Michael Savage – who holds a Ph. D. in ethnomedicine for the University of California at Berkley – ripped Limbaugh for opposing the lockdowns.
Savage claimed Limbaugh was putting lives at risk and wondered why there weren’t any “consequences” for Limbaugh attacking the lockdowns.
“How can LIMBAUGH continue to lie and say ‘we don’t know if the lockdowns are working’ WHEN WE KNOW FOR A FACT THAT CHURCH GROUPS AND JEWISH GROUPS WHO REFUSED TO COMPLY BECAME HIGHLY INFECTED? Are there no standards in the media? no consequences for endangering lives?” Savage wrote on social media.
If the Democrats win the 2020 election and Joe Biden gets to appoint the majority of members to the Federal Communications Commission there is little doubt leftists will use the idea that Limbaugh and others spread “misinformation” and try to take them off the air for good.
