Rush Limbaugh: American Flag Will ‘Come Under Assault’ Next


Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh wondered aloud how the Confederate flag somehow became a “Republican problem.” Now that nearly every major conservative has called for the flag’s removal from the statehouse in South Carolina, the radio host thinks the American flag might be next.

“The next flag that will come under assault, and it will not be long, is the American flag,” Limbaugh declared on Tuesday. “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.”

By Limbaugh’s logic, the American flag is a “symbol of America.” And because the left, “doesn’t like this country very much and never has,” they will soon demand the removal of a flag that stands for “everything that’s wrong with” America.

“It isn’t gonna be long before the American flag is gonna cause chills, fear, scary thoughts,” Limbaugh said, putting himself in the mind of the America-hating liberal, “it’s gonna make me nervous, the American flag, when I see the American flag, it’s a symbol of hate.”
