Rush Limbaugh says he wants to see political riots in the streets of Denver

The radio blabber says the inevitable POLITICAL AFTERMATH of the violence would be “the best damn thing that can happen to this country, as far as I can think.”

As far as he can think? That covers a lot of ugly stuff, doesn’t it?

Can you say “brownshirt,” boys and girls?

POSTSCRIPT: The Violent Radicalisation and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, which passed the House by a wide margin last year and likely will soon gain Senate passage, would make it unlawful to incite “the use, planned use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual… to intimidate or coerce the United States government, the civilian population of the United States, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”

But, of course, this Act would take effect after Limbaugh’s rant, which presumably leaves him in the clear (unless he repeats this irresponsible stuff).  The would-be lawyer in me wonders if the law, once in effect, would cover people who approvingly spread Limbaugh’s dangerous message — and figure, perhaps wrongly, that they can’t get in trouble using his words.

POSTSCRIPT II: There’s a Colorado state law that says: “Any person who incites, urges, instructs, or signals a group of five or more persons to engage in a riot and injury to a person or damage to property results therefrom commits a class 5 felony.”

    The one thing you have to remember about Rush (whom I listened to for a few years back in the early 90′s, but can’t stand anymore) is that he considers himself an entertainer first and foremost. His job — and he has said this many times — is simply to get as many people as possible to listen to his program. Period. If that means saying outrageous and borderline (or way-beyond-borderline) offensive things, he will do it.
    I predict that within a few days he will explain all this away as “demonstrating absurdity by being absurd” (another common catch phrase of his) and use alleged examples of liberals/Democrats saying similar things as justification for it.

  2. Bob: One of your comments with the link misfired, so I took the liberty of deleting it. OK?

  3. By the way, Bob. I like that nickname “Sauce.” Cool.

  4. If I’m going to riot, I think my room will be provided by the city of Denver.

  5. I think Al Sharpton will have NYC rocking before Rush could ever convince any leftie to riot.

  6. I can’t decide which of them is the bigger idiot, Sharpton or Limbaugh.
