Rush Limbaugh: ‘We Are on the Cusp of a Second Civil War’

United States News - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 17:36

Friday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh said given the state of affairs in the country, particularly in the wake of last week’s events in Charlottesville, VA, it could be said the country was on the cusp of a second civil war. Limbaugh insisted much of the angst was being driven by forces from the outside wanting to see the United States cease being a “super powerful nation.” Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com): America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen in my life. And I’m sure it’s the same with you. We haven’t seen anything like this. You might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war. Some of you might say that we are already into it, that it has already begun.

United States News - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 17:26

Fox Sports 1’s Rob Parker ripped “selfish” Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant for refusing to protest during the national anthem. Parker said Bryant, who cited his “family to feed” for not protesting, does not understand what Colin Kaepernick was protesting, adding that the “worst people in the world” are people who see something is wrong and do nothing to fix it. “[Bryant] comes off as your typical selfish athlete,” Parker said Friday on “Undisputed.” “He doesn’t understand, it’s not about him. It’s bigger than him.” He continued, “How do you make change? You’ve got to be willing to fight for it. It’s not going to happen because you’re so selfish you’re going to stand up there and derail the whole movement by talking about your damn job and feeding your damn family. It ain’t right. And it does a disservice to what Colin Kaepernick was willing to do, where he had nothing vested personally in it, other than doing what’s right. The worst people in the world are the people who refuse to say something when things are wrong. Those are the worst people in the world. And that’s what I look at when I look at Dez Bryant. He
