“Something that I have been, A, predicting, and hoping is under way. And that is the breakup of the Democrat Party. I’m not saying the crackup of the American left. I think they’ve already cracked up. I think they’re already insane. But they are now in the process of taking the Democrat Party with them.”
The issue is the complaints this week by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York that some members of the party agreed with Republicans on an amendment to a gun-control bill.
It measure stands virtually no chance of being approved in the Senate.
But House Republicans wanted an amendment to say that ICE must be informed of any illegal aliens identified in a background check while buying a gun.
Twenty-six Democrats agreed, and the amendment passed.
“Oh, can you imagine the excrement storm that erupted from this?” Limbaugh asked. ” … This infuriated Pelosi. This infuriated Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.”
He said Pelosi “has since told the House Democrats that she will not allow any such defections in the future and that she is gonna demand that the party always vote as a solid bloc.”
“The Democrat Party is a family; there are no defections. They will not be permitted. They will not be tolerated. Anybody that defects like this in the future is going to be essentially driven out of the Democrat caucus and the House of Representatives.”
He noted Ocasio-Cortez, who also has proposed a “Green New Deal” she says would eliminate air travel, fund people unwilling to work and curb cow flatulence, “has gone even further.”
“She is threatening to sic her activists, her protesters, her rabble-rousers on any Democrat who doesn’t vote the way she wants them to vote. And she’s taking names. And she is going to make a little list,” Limbaugh said.
He said the story apparently was “leaked” to the Washington Post.
“Some people think that it was the moderate Democrats who leaked this to the Washington Post to show what they are dealing with in this rabid, socialist, leftist caucus. Remember who these people are. These are elected in moderate swing districts of the country. In many cases these are districts Donald Trump won in 2016,” he said.
But Pelosi and Cortez, he said, “are demanding that these people ignore the will of their voters.”
“They are demanding that these moderates forget where they come from, where they came from, and throw in at all times with the House Democrat caucus.”
He said Pelosi’s demand is that everybody vote “the way she wants.”
“Cortez is about something entirely different. She doesn’t run the House. Cortez is on total ideological programming here, and she is insisting that these people vote the way she demands, otherwise, she’s taking names and she’s gonna give these names over to a bunch of rabble-rousing protesters and donors who are gonna see to it all these people get primaried,” he said.
“This is a goon squad. The Democrat Party goon squad is demanding total conformity and total unity and total misery. It is amazing the rampant misery and anger and unhappiness that permeates throughout the American left. They’re never happy, never excited, never even content,” Limbaugh said.
“The Democrats seem to care more about protecting illegal aliens than they care about gun control. Which of course is true. The Democrats care more about illegal aliens than even climate change. The Democrats care more about promoting amnesty and the continued flow of illegal aliens across the border because that’s their future. That’s their permanent underclass. They need that.
“I hope they keep this up. I hope they keep it up. I hope they keep it up in public. I hope they keep thinking they are scoring big wins with it. Trump’s gonna end up being reelected with phenomenal numbers if they continue with everything that they’re doing along these lines, because this is not where a majority of Americans are or want to go,” he said.
“They are feeling their oats. That’s the confidence they’re running around with, and they’ve got themselves convinced that most people see Trump the way they do. That’s why this insurrection in the party is simply unacceptable. It will not be tolerated. So that’s the thing to keep an eye on is how she deals with the insurrection and for everybody else to notice it,” he said.
