BOOM: Rush Just Asked The One Question About The Slain Lion The Whole World Should Ask

Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh questioned how so many can “get teary-eyed and misty-eyed and sad over Cecil [the lion] and, at the same time, participate in burying what’s happening at Planned Parenthood?  Can somebody explain that to me?” he said on Wednesday’s program.

Limbaugh made clear that he gets the sadness over the death of an innocent, magnificent lion, who was a prime attraction at Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park. “I myself was ravaged with sadness when I heard about the death of Cecil the lion,” the self-identified cat lover said.

He noted that outrage has been expressed from all corners. Even late night host Jimmy Kimmel devoted a lengthy portion of his opening monologue to express outrage over the famous lion’s death.

Limbaugh observed how much more the nation should be outraged over the actions of Planned Parenthood, which has been implicated in selling aborted babies’ body parts.

“I do know how the animal people are. But I know that most animal people…they have the same attitude toward human beings. Look, I understand the difference. Human beings, adult human beings, they’re not the essence of innocence. But babies in the womb are. Babies in the womb are more innocent than any animal is,” said Limbaugh.

Presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio shared Rush’s observation too, tweeting:

Marco Rubio Tweet Cecil the Lion

While there have been calls from various corners for President Obama’s Justice Department to investigate Planned Parenthood’s allegedly illegal acts, so far there appears to be no action. However, the administration has been quick to offer its support into investigating the death of Cecil the lion.

The Hill reports:

Obama administration officials are offering to help the Zimbabwean government investigate the high-profile killing of a lion there by a United States dentist.

The Fish & Wildlife Service, which is responsible for both enforcing domestic wildlife law and mitigating international wildlife crime, said the administration has taken note of the international outcry over the killing of Cecil, a beloved African lion, and is ready to take action if needed.

“The Service is deeply concerned about the recent killing of Cecil the lion,” Laury Parramore, a spokesman for the agency, said in a statement.

“We are currently gathering facts about the issue and will assist Zimbabwe officials in whatever manner requested,” she said. “It is up to all of us — not just the people of Africa — to ensure that healthy, wild populations of animals continue to roam the savanna for generations to come.”

Rush Limbaugh Just Revealed The One Way People Attacking Trump Are Hypocrites

Acknowledging upfront that he is “no apologist” for the brash presidential contender, radio host Rush Limbaugh still said the backlash against Donald Trump over his recent remarks regarding Sen. John McCain’s war record has been largely misleading.

Regarding widespread reports that Trump denied the former prisoner of war is a hero, Limbaugh deferred to investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson’s analysis and concluded he “did not say what he’s being reputed to have said.”

In fact, Limbaugh pointed to the fact that Trump has since corrected his initial misstatement multiple times.

“He said it one time,” the host said of Trump’s flub, “he was answering a question, and he said that McCain’s not a hero, captured; and he changed and said four different times he is a hero – he is a war hero. McCain is a war hero. He said that four times.”

Some national media outlets, however, have failed to report the subsequent clarifications, Limbaugh charged.

“What actually was said by the offending party and the context in which it was said are purposely blurred, lied about or ignored,” he said.

An underlying issue, Limbaugh concluded, can be found in the disparate reactions McCain and Trump received for their respective parts in the recent public squabble. The host noted that McCain started the war of words, after all, when he referred to Trump’s supporters as “crazies.”

While Trump is being excoriated for his comments, however, Limbaugh said that there is no corresponding call for McCain to disavow his rhetoric.

WATCH: See What People Say When Asked To Sign A Petition To Do THIS To The American Flag

Author, political activist, and fake-petition-funny-guy Mark Dice has shown us time and again the outrageous things that average, everyday Americans are willing to support. Not long ago, Western Journalism shared a Dice video in which he got a bunch of California beach goers to endorse a supposed plan by President Obama to repeal the entire Bill of Rights. A couple of years back, we showed you another clip where Dice took to the streets to get signatures on his “petition” for Barack Obama to receive immunity from prosecution for all crimes he commits while president — and yep, lots of people gladly signed on.

Now, Dice is at it once again as he asks folks around San Diego to join an effort (fake, though it may be) to have the American flag banned and replaced with a rainbow banner representing a “new world order.” While some refuse to sign the petition, a number of people agree that the proposal to ban the Stars and Stripes is something they can support.

The inspiration for this so-called petition drive, as Dice tells people, is the growing number of calls to ban Confederate flags in the wake of the Charleston church massacre.

As Infowars observes of Dice’s latest man-on-the-street encounters:

In signing the petition, these individuals sided with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who last week called for the American flag to be banned due to its links with racism.

‘I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag! We need to put the American flag down because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag!’ said Farrakhan.

As Western Journalism reported last week, Rush Limbaugh predicted on his radio show that the American flag would become the next target of leftist ideologues. And as you click above to watch this video from Mark Dice, you will see that — as crazy as the notion sounds — a lot of people would likely go along with the idea to bring down Old Glory.

Rush Thinks He’s Found The Real Reason The Supreme Court Let Obamacare Slide — And It’s Sinister

Fresh off of a seemingly clairvoyant prediction that the ongoing controversy surrounding the Confederate flag would spread to a denouncement of the American flag, radio host Rush Limbaugh this week made a bold assertion regarding Thursday’s U.S. Supreme Court decision regarding ObamaCare. The 6-3 vote upheld the use of federal tax subsidies in assisting poor Americans in need of health insurance.

Expressing his disappointment with Chief Justice John Roberts over his decision to side with the Obama administration, Limbaugh determined the generally conservative justice was influenced by outside forces. Thursday’s decision was the second in which Roberts voted with the majority to protect the largely unpopular federal healthcare law.

The venerable host prefaced his analysis by insisting that he is “not accusing anybody” of wrongdoing, going on to explain that surrounding details seem to suggest Roberts is influenced by money. Building on reports that show shares of healthcare-related stocks jumped in the wake of the high court’s ruling, Limbaugh hypothesized that this was the result Roberts might have been pursuing.

He continued by suggesting that “when you follow the money, a lot of questions that seem unanswerable become clear.”

Reader comments on leftist sites like Media Matters were predictably upset by Limbaugh’s monologue. The pithy retorts scribed below an article on that site included one critic’s assertion that those in the conservative media realm “are real morons.”

Within the social media realm, however, reaction was more balanced as many Obamacare opponents shared Limbaugh’s incredulous take on Roberts’ vote.

Limbaugh Makes Two Stunning Predictions Regarding What The Confederate Flag Controversy Is Really About

During his syndicated radio program Tuesday, Rush Limbaugh opined on the recent mass shooting in Charleston, S.C., and the subsequent push for the state to remove the Confederate flag from atop its Statehouse.

According to Limbaugh’s assessment, targeting the southern symbol is but the first step in a much loftier goal among leftist ideologues.

“It’s not going to stop with the Confederate flag,” he asserted, “because it’s not about the Confederate flag. It’s about destroying the South as political force. It’s about isolating, targeting and identifying the South as [shooting suspect] Dylann Roof. Not Charleston, S.C. – the South. That’s what the leftists’ efforts on the Confederate flag are. Do not doubt me, folks.”

His monologue continued with a second prediction.

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

Leftist activists, he said, will begin to associate the national banner with the nation’s perceived history of hate and oppression.

“If you take a look at the timeline of the progression of events,” he said, “the 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 is in their crosshairs down the road, you had better stop and reconsider.”

Leftists, he suggested, will start to believe that the flag “stands for America” and “as such, everything that’s wrong with it.”

Though far-left Media Matters for America attracted numerous critics to the comments section of its report on the recent comments, readers on other sites were more likely to share Limbaugh’s concerns.

“It wouldn’t surprise me,” one reader wrote on The Blaze. “The left is nothing but a bunch of lunatics and morons.”

Will the left begin demonizing the American flag soon? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
