Ladies and gentlemen, I’m getting nervous. I am already getting nervous. I know it’s early. I’m not getting nervous because of anything I’ve heard President-Elect Trump say. I’m getting nervous because of things I’m hearing other people say…
… things totally unnecessary. And I want to take some time today to try to explain why I’m nervous and destroy some myths that seem to always pop up after elections about unity and crossing the aisle and working together and almost apologizing for winning.
From Rush Limbaugh
I’m sick of it. I’m fed up with it. I have watched it happen for now 29 years, and I’m not gonna sit here and stand or sit mute while it happens again. We have been governed against our will for the last eight years. The Democrat Party — and nobody saw this, folks — because everybody was so focused on two people, Hillary and Donald Trump. Nobody, I mean nobody until after it was over, had any idea what had really happened.
We should have known it because we’ve been chronicling it. I’m talking about the demise of the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party since 2010, the midterm elections in 2010, they lost 900 seats in that election in the House, in the Senate, go to governorships, mayors, town council, if you go all over the country, they got a shellacking. We now know that if Donald Trump had run for president in 2012 using the exact data he got versus what Obama got in 2012, Donald Trump would have beaten Obama in 2012, if you take the data from this election and measure it against what Obama had.
Hillary Clinton got six million fewer votes than Barack Obama in 2012. In 2014, the next set of midterms, the Democrats lost another 700 seats. The Democrat Party has been decimated. They have no bench. They don’t have anybody bringing up the rear in case Hillary lost. They have literally been shellacked. We have been governed by a minority against our will, and the illusion has been that they are the majority and gaining the majority and growing the majority.
The illusion has been that we are the ones dwindling away to nothing, and it’s been the exact opposite. The pollsters didn’t miss anything. They didn’t get anything wrong. They just didn’t tell us the truth about what they were seeing in these polls. You go back and look at it now. The data there was. They, exactly as I asked on the day of the election, if we’re not gonna believe them all of these months when they report the news, why believe the polls that they produce?
They didn’t miss anything. What they’re doing by saying, “Man, how did we miss it? Oh, my God, we’ve gotta go back and examine it.” They didn’t miss it. They didn’t tell the truth. They weren’t honest about what they were finding. They weren’t honest about trying to find what was actually going on. The idea they don’t know who Trump voters are — BS. They know exactly who the Trump voter is. They ignored them. They impugned them. They knew exactly where the Trump supporter was coming from and they chose to ignore it. They chose to report that it didn’t exist. They chose to report that it wasn’t relevant.
So now we have all these riots going on, exactly as I predicted. And, folks, aside from these little snowflakes that are melting on campus today, the kids, all of these riots that you’re seeing in New York and Philadelphia and Chicago and Los Angeles are bought and paid for. They are not real in terms of springing up genuinely and organically.
They’re bought and paid for, and we know this from the WikiLeaks email dumps from John Podesta, and we know it from Project Veritas videos.
We know that all of the protests at Trump rallies were bought and paid for primarily by George Soros, by the Democrat Party. We are still being treated by the media to a picture of America that isn’t true. They want you to believe that a majority of Americans is fit to fit to be tied and angry over the election of Donald Trump and as one of which we can never unify unless Trump caves on everything in order to get peace. That’s what they’re trying to make everybody think, and that’s what’s making me nervous, when I hear so many on our side talk about now the need to cross the aisle and the need to unify.
The time to unify is after we have forced them into surrender just like we did the Japanese in World War II. But the days of unifying with the losers because they’re mad and we don’t want the media saying mean things about us, they lost. And, folks, they have been losing since 2010. Obama would not have won his two elections were it not for his race. I am convinced that his approval numbers — people say, “Rush, how can you say what you’re saying. Obama’s got 53% approval.”
No, he doesn’t. His policies were unilaterally rejected in this election, folks. The presidency of Barack Obama was sent packing. That is exactly what was on the ballot, and we have with his own words if you recall. Part of his campaign — his ego couldn’t help it — he’s out there campaigning (imitating Obama), “My legacy is all about this. My issues are on the ballot. Hillary Clinton represents a continuation of everything and all the progress we made.”
What happened? A total repudiation. That 53% approval rating is because of his race and for other surface-oriented factors, but not substance. And they use that 53%, and I’m not even sure I believe that number. That number doesn’t does make sense with the election results. The Democrat Party and the agenda of Barack Obama were entirely, totally repudiated in this election, as was the Democrat Party. It was a bloodbath. That is how bad it was. And what people are now learning, they didn’t know just how bad it was on the Democrat side.
All of our Never Trumpers and all of our wishy-washy RINOs are so self-absorbed with what’s wrong in their own party and who’s traitorous in their own movement that they were not paying attention to the real enemy — in a political sense, of course — and that’s the Democrats and the left. And once you look at what has happened to them 2010, 2014, and Tuesday of this week, they have been sent packing. Their policies, the substance of what they tried to do, the substance of what they say they believe, things like Obamacare, the stimulus, various economic policy, it has all been repudiated, and not because of personality. It’s because of substance.
Six million fewer Democrats showed up to vote for a person who thought she was going to be coronated, so loved and adored we were told she was by the Democrat Party. She had to steal her own nomination from Bernie Sanders. Folks, we are lied to every day by the Democrat Party, which is the media. We are lied to about how we are viewed in the country. We are lied to about how they are viewed. We are lied to about how the country loves their policies and loves them. We are lied to each and every day, and it is the daily soap opera that I have warned about and talked about that the media gets together and scripts, the daily narrative.
Look at Colin Kaepernick. Did you see what Colin Kaepernick did on Election Day? He didn’t vote! Here’s a guy who may be one of the primary reasons the audience levels in the NFL are plummeting to the cellar — here’s a guy who claims he’s doing it because of social justice, that he can’t stand to sit in a country and be in a country where minorities are so poorly treated — and on the one day where he really has something to say and do about it, he sits on his butt and doesn’t go vote.
As far as I’m concerned, Colin Kaepernick is a nonperson and doesn’t serve one second more of media coverage, which raises a question: Why did he get any media coverage in the first place? What was it? Colin Kaepernick used to be a great quarterback. Now he has fallen to, basically… He’s a bad quarterback. There’s nothing worth watching when Colin Kaepernick takes the field, unless you like car wrecks. Yet look at all the attention that the media gave him.
Why did they give him so much attention? What was he doing, really? When you get down to brass tacks, what was he doing? He was ripping America, and that’s what they liked, and that’s what they wanted to promote — and the American people have had their fill of this. The American people love their country and are sick and tired of people who hate it being celebrated and elevated and made celebrities and getting rich. They are sick and tired of it, and we have the election results to show for it on Tuesday.
And we also have the plummeting fortunes of the Democrat Party to back it up. The Democrat Party happens to be the receptacle for anti-Americanism in America today. If you don’t like America and if you’ve got problems with America, that’s where you go. You go to the Democrat Party. It is undeniable. Now, I warned everybody about this rioting. I warned about it constantly. I want you to hear, because, folks, it isn’t real. I am begging you to ignore it. Do not let it affect you.
Do not let it convince you that it wasn’t worth winning. Do not let it make you think that winning is not gonna amount to anything because look at how many Americans are unhappy. “Oh, my gosh, why can’t they join us?” It is being bought and paid for. Organized leftist protests the day after the election in seven cities? It’s not organic like Occupy Wall Street wasn’t organic. If it was, where is it now? Where is Occupy Wall Street? It served its purpose; it’s gone away? No, it hasn’t. This is Occupy Wall Street. This is Black Lives Matter.
It’s all the same people, it’s all the same money, it’s all the same thinking. And Project Veritas videos exposed how the Democrat Party buys, pays for, and orchestrates this stuff. Here is me all the way back on June 30th on this program. And Politico was outraged by what I said here, and they wrote a story on July 1st expressing how they were outraged how anybody could dare say what I said, given the campaign as it was.
This is it. This is what I said. You probably heard it, June 30th of this year.

RUSH: I want you to fast forward to November to Trump winning the presidency in November. And I want you to think, using your intelligence guided by experience, what’s gonna happen that night? What’s gonna happen the next day? What’s going to happen every day thereafter? What’s gonna happen the day Trump gets inaugurated? What is the left gonna do? They’re not gonna just sit idly by and accept this and say, “Good fight. We gave it everything we had, but we lost.” They’re gonna do everything they can to undermine it.
And I think we’re gonna see levels of violence that we have not seen. I think people are gonna be shocked at the degree to which the left intends to intimidate people into reversing that result. I think they’re gonna do everything they can to see it that Trump never does get inaugurated. Whatever, it’s gonna be unlike anything. And the point here is that the election, if we win it, is just a small step forward. It’s gonna take fortitude. It’s gonna take guts. It’s gonna take steel spines.
It’s gonna take courage to implement the victory and then to maintain the victory and then to grow upon the victory. And I’m telling you, the left is gonna be out there attempting, in whatever fashion they can — whether it breaks the law or not — to thwart the results of the election should Trump win. … [M]y sense is that there isn’t gonna be any peace. There’s gonna be anger. There is going to be rage. There are gonna be lawsuits.
Everything about the victory is gonna be attacked. The Democrats will throw lawyers and who knows whatever else at that outcome demanding recounts here, recounts there, whatever. No matter how close it is. No matter if it’s a landslide loss for Hillary Clinton. They just don’t put up with it, and they’re certainly not gonna be of the mind to put up with it in November. And it’s not just because it’s Trump. Trump will be icing on the cake.
