What Limbaugh Just Said About Liberal ‘Bigotry’ Will Have the Left Fuming


Radio host Rush Limbaugh destroyed the liberal onslaught against Ben Carson’s alleged ‘bigotry’ towards Muslims, saying that the left has consistently denounced Evangelical Christians running for president throughout history.

Limbaugh recalled many instances throughout the seventies, eighties, and nineties, where the Democrat party, referring to Christians, consistently said, “We can’t have those kinds of people in the White House.”

via Rush Limbaugh:

RUSH:  Hey, folks, this is not weird or odd. I mentioned this yesterday. How many of you people remember the countless times Democrats and members of the media have spoken out against the idea that we might elect an evangelical Christian as president? We can’t have that. We can’t have those kinds of people in the White House. Those people get in the White House and start imposing their religious views on everybody.  We can’t have that.  I mean, it was a constant refrain in the seventies and eighties.

Hell, even the early parts of the nineties, Pat Robertson, somebody else with close ties to evangelical Christians would seek office, doesn’t matter if it’s the presidency, and here would come the media, here would come the Democrat Party, “We can’t have theocrats in office. We can’t have deeply devout, religious people.  Why, that would be untenable.”  But now, as long as it’s not Christians, any other religion, fine and dandy. Want to elect a Muslim president, damn straight, fine and dandy, we’re an open-ended, open-minded society. Keep the Christians outta here, but a Muslim, fine and dandy.

People have forgotten the bigotry and discrimination that was on parade constantly from the Democrat Party and the media.

Of course, this doesn’t take away from the fact that the ‘bigotry’ being alleged against Carson has been completely manufactured by the media. Carson wasn’t saying a Muslim could not be president based on his religion, rather that Sharia law is inconsistent with the laws of the Constitution. The Islamic faith, he asserted, could not work within the framework of America’s guiding principals.

Carson recently unloaded on a reporter for continuing the media lie:

I said I would support anyone.  Again, it seems to be hard for people to actually hear English and understand it.  I said I would support anyone regardless of their background if in fact they embrace American values and our Constitution and are willing to place that above their beliefs.

It doesn’t get much simpler than that. The media and the left will continue perpetrating the lie, despite as Limbaugh points out, their own history of ‘bigotry.’

Have Democrats throughout history been more discriminatory against Christians?
