Rush Limbaugh: "Ironic" That John Lewis Is Applauded For Sit-In "Denying Civil Rights"
RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): We cannot afford a Hillary Clinton presidency because that’s it, that’s the end of the Constitution. You saw a preview of it. How ironic is it? Here’s John Lewis, who is a iconic member of the 60’s civil rights movement, shall we say. Somebody told me he looks like a frog to them today. Looked at John Lewis — Star Wars character, could be a frog. I said, “please don’t go there, don’t tell me that, I might repeat it.”
Anyway, John Lewis, he’s sitting there with all these other leftists in this childish little sit-in. How ironic is it, here is a guy who is iconic with the civil rights movement sitting on the floor of where ever they were — the House — sitting on the floor of the House trying to deny the American people a Constitutional right without due process. They were — the four gun control bills that had them all agitated had already been defeated in the Senate. There was nothing this sit-in was going to accomplish except bullying, PR, fundraising. Make no mistake, that’s what was going on as well. They were fundraising by doing this sit-in. But I just, I find it ironic that somebody is applauded John Lewis, he’s applauded, he’s regaled, he’s heralded as a civil rights icon, and he’s participating in a sit-in yesterday that was formed for an express purpose of denying civil rights.
