Rush Limbaugh has used Paul’s assault to claim that Democrats and liberals were terrorists. He made sure to point out that Boucher is a “leftist,” then mentioned the Texas shooter, the NYC attack, and reports that employees at EPA have received threats.
“Now, folks, is it any wonder that Republicans might be a little skittish?” Limbaugh noted. “Above and beyond their fear already of the media, which of course is not a fear of violence against them. It’s a fear of being destroyed in the media if they dare stand up for what they believe in.”
He then claimed that the “left is encouraging this kind of activity” and that “All of this is applauded, and in the driveby media, while it may not all be applauded, it is certainly treated with respect.”
Finally, we went for the terrorist card.
“And I’m just going to tell you, terrorists do not always just come from Uzbekistan,” he said. “They don’t just come from Afghanistan. They don’t just come from Al Qaeda. Sometimes, terrorists come straight from the Democrat party, straight from the American left.”
