Rush Limbaugh reacted to an upcoming Black Lives Matter protest by saying today the movement is close to “unionized gang status.”
Activists are planning to protest in Graceland during Elvis week, with one explaining they’re protesting there because “it demonstrates one of Memphis’s most common forms of financial inequality and because the site has ties to…the death of unarmed teen Darrius Stewart.”
“I think Black Lives Matter is almost approaching unionized gang status now,” Limbaugh said. “They have imprimatur from the White House. They have their leaders up there honored for the great work that they do, and they’re rabble-rousers.”
He found the idea of a protest there ridiculous because Graceland has “nothing to do with anything,” but suspected they would still get “sympathetic” attention.
