Rush Limbaugh Refutes New Trump ‘Cult’ Narrative

Rush Limbaugh Refutes New Trump ‘Cult’ Narrative

“Donald Trump is not the cause of all this. Donald Trump is the beneficiary.”

https://www.mrctv.org/videos/limbaugh-calls-out-medias-double-standard-cults-fox

A new narrative is taking form among liberals and never-Trump Republicans. According to them, the GOP is becoming a Trump cult. Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee is one of the latest to push this ridiculous idea.

Rush Limbaugh is having none of it. FOX and Friends recently highlighted a clip from Rush’s show where he addressed the issue. Kristine Marsh reports at NewsBusters:

Limbaugh Calls Out Media’s Double Standard on Presidential ‘Cults’ on Fox & Friends

Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh blasted NeverTrump Republicans and the media that aids them on his radio program, Wednesday. Fox and Friends picked up the clip of Limbaugh taking down Tennessee Senator Bob Corker and the media that praised his words, after he smeared Republicans who supported Trump as part of a “cult.” Limbaugh called out several media outlets as elitists who lazily dismiss those they don’t agree with, wondering why they didn’t say the same thing about Democrats when Obama was in office…

LIMBAUGH: Senator Corker, this isn’t a cult by any stretch of the imagination. Donald Trump does not have a Svengali hold on these people. In fact, Senator, if you want to know the truth, Donald Trump is not the cause of all this. Donald Trump is the beneficiary. Donald Trump had the ability to understand where a majority of Republican voters were and what they were thinking and how fed up they were about certain things, and Donald Trump came along, and he spoke their language. He validated what they were thinking, and he has become their champion, because nobody else in your party stepped up!

Watch the video below:

If you watched that clip to the end, you heard Brian Kilmeade ask where the concern was about cults when Obama was president. I recently made the same point on Twitter:

Maybe the Democrats can get back to us when little children start singing songs about Trump.

Oh, please…!!!

There’s nuance here, not just stupid name-calling.

There is a T-rump cult. Outside of that there are a broad swath of T-rump supporters.

Limbaugh has become a clown.

    I think you have that job well nailed down rags.

      JusticeDelivered in reply to rdm. | June 17, 2018 at 5:25 pm

      Sourpuss Rags,suffering from Trump derangement syndrome. I gather that rags is either a Rino, or a far left nut case trying to pass as a Rino.

      I am very pleasantly surprised that Trump is actually working hard to deliver on his campaign promises. I hope that many other unconventional people run for office and continue to upset the status quo.

        Ragspierre in reply to JusticeDelivered. | June 17, 2018 at 5:31 pm

        No, JustAssDelivered, I’m a conservative. That’s something you seem incapable of comprehending, along with so much else.

        I oppose BIG GOVERNMENT, which Duh Donald LOVES.

        Rush USED to say he did. Now…not so much.

          Halcyon Daze in reply to Ragspierre. | June 17, 2018 at 5:46 pm

          You’re a moron and a jackass, Rages, and you drag this comment section down on a daily, weekly, and hourly basis.

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | June 17, 2018 at 6:22 pm

          I’ve never seen anything from you that contributed to any debate, Dazed. Not once. You’re everything you’ve called me, in spades.

        Rags is a purist. He’d rather see the country burn to the ground than put a candidate in office who didn’t hold the correct conservative credentials. Meanwhile back in the real world, adults have moved on from the election and some of us are just happy as hell Hillary wasn’t coronated… something the never trumpers actually wanted. Yeah, they’d rather sit back, let it burn to the ground and point fingers at Hillary as it happened as if that would change the result.

          Ragspierre in reply to Sanddog. | June 17, 2018 at 6:43 pm

          dog is an idiot. See how that works?

          I’m not a “purist” or any other term of derogation you’d like to try to apply. I’m a guy who objectively looks at people and things and applies critical thinking.

          What you attribute to me is a Bannonesque notion. I’m not…in any measure…an adherent to that stupidity. I’m also not for capitulation on what I consider good policy in the name of “unity”. If Duh Donald can be persuaded to adopt better policy, I think that’s good. Don’t you?

          Sanddog in reply to Sanddog. | June 17, 2018 at 7:11 pm

          Rags, Trump isn’t going to be persuaded by the hardcore never compromise wing of the conservative party. When you sit at either extreme, politicians tend to ignore you because you’re just a tiny fraction of the voting public and your intransigence stands in the way of ANY progress. If you want to be hardcore about the Constitution, I’m right there with you. When it comes to everything else, you have to compromise. It’s time to stop the temper tantrums and come back to the real world.

          Ragspierre in reply to Sanddog. | June 17, 2018 at 7:18 pm

          Gee, thanks for that unsolicited and egregious advice. What “temper tantrum” are you fantasizing about?

          People who actually believe in sound policy are not a “fringe”. At least we weren’t two years ago. I haven’t changed. And I won’t. Many HAVE. That’s just a shame.

      Gotta give it to him: he’s a clown that actually provides a lot of laughs.

    Colonel Travis in reply to Ragspierre. | June 17, 2018 at 5:15 pm

    I don’t listen to Rush as much as I used to, but reading his entire exchange on this, I’m not sure what’s clownish about it. He addressed specific people and a specific subject.

    Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | June 17, 2018 at 5:18 pm

    I made two simple assertions as regards a cult.

    Which one do you dispute?

      Colonel Travis in reply to Ragspierre. | June 17, 2018 at 5:31 pm

      Was the question for me? If so, I disagreed with you about Rush in this case. That’s it.

      As for Trump, I can’t speak for the people who voted for him. All I know is that I voted for him, I don’t worship him or any other politician, I think he has many faults, I like what he’s done in general.

      JusticeDelivered in reply to Ragspierre. | June 17, 2018 at 5:31 pm

      Rags, all your assertions are so simple. Please inform us what it is like to wander through life in a fog hating Trump. It is not his fault that you are suffering from an inferiority complex.

    Why make comments that have no value? Hard to understand the motivation behind it.

    meyou in reply to Ragspierre. | June 17, 2018 at 6:37 pm

    Wow, you’re truly coming apart at the seams. Try to take 10 deep breaths, get out the needle & thread and start sewing. You needn’t live in misery.

    MarkS in reply to Ragspierre. | June 17, 2018 at 9:24 pm

    OMG!

    Calling Rush Limbaugh a clown is as blatant a psychological projection involving yourself as is ignoramuses on the left calling us Constitutionalists ‘cultists.’

      Thanks for reminding us of that list…

      I suppose if you spend most a campaign season rolling around on the floor of a van like a log you have lots of time to think of mendacious slogans.

    Obama brought something new to our nation! What was new? CHICAGO corruption. Politics was always down and dirty but now we have City Hall style, behind the back corruption and intimidation
    Thanks to his SJW style administration.

G. de La Hoya | June 17, 2018 at 5:57 pm

Once again, Rush is right. Trump has brought a lot of big mouths out in the open where it is easier to see your enemies. I really do enjoy the derogatory comments by those thinking they can sum up people like me 🙂

    Rush has RARELY been wrong. (There was a period many years ago when he got too chummy with the GOP establishment. But he figured that out and blew them off a long time ago.)

    As off-the-rails as this ‘Rags’ character is: that’s how intuitive Rush is. There’s a reason he’s stayed number one for almost 30 years.

I don’t think that rags has figured out yet that we now have our own ball to play with, and really don’t need his. Nothing sadder than an attention whore not getting any.

It reminds me of a frequent caller we had on the crisis hotline, whose entire sense of value was based on how much attention she could get from other people. We, and several other hotlines, had to place her on a 20 min/day allotment. So it appears with Rags, who doesn’t seem to be as concerned with the answers but as to whether others spend their time replying to he/she/it. And for the record, talking about someone is not the same as talking to them, sort of like an addict not getting their fix by watching another shoot up. The pattern is obvious. Ask a loaded question or make a loaded statement, and then repeatedly attack, begging for more attention. The tactic, like liberal policies in general, is to never get a resolution, but to continue the activity (not achievement, mind you) ad nauseum. The key to dealing with it is recognizing a hostage situation early in the makings, and either walking away, or not engaging in the first place. Anyone who is a parent knows that it is possible to carry on an adult conversation while a child/terrorist throws a meaningless tantrum in the background. Sadly, no user selectable ignore function here, which is probably why he/she/it has gravitated here, having experienced the power of it elsewhere.

Corker is still smarting from the impromptu boos he received. He uses the term ‘cult’ as a bromide. The media is smarting from lack of traction with the various narratives that they have employed en masse. They likewise use the term to excuse their inability to separate Trump from his voters.

    WE are Trump. The left and the rats of the GOPe can’t separate us from ourselves.

    Trump is the most brilliant representative we could have found at this time in American history. As smart and as talented as he is, remember this: WE elected him, and WE choose to support him as if the future of our nation depended on it.

    Matt_SE in reply to puhiawa. | June 18, 2018 at 10:39 am

    The way you know it isn’t a cult is how his “followers” ignore his endorsements when they back a RINO like Luther Strange or Mitt Romney.

    I’ve never seen a cult ignore its leader like that.

    Edward in reply to puhiawa. | June 24, 2018 at 9:19 am

    Corker is an idiot (most charitable explanation for him) who’s greatest accomplishment is greasing the skids for the Congress to ignore the Constitution’s imposition of the duty to advise and consent on Treaties, giving His Imperial Executiveness, Emperor Barak the Nonpareil’s disgraceful Iran “deal” a pass.

It’s hilarious that after all the comparisons to God/obama they actually come up with calling Trump followers cultists!

Lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Oooh, oooh! I can’t wait for the Trump cult special hand signals. Let’s have a secret handshake, too, please.

If it weren’t for the press’s multi-trimester baby hunt, backed by the establishment and left-right nexus, would there still be a perception of a cult?

I liked the michale moore story mo better.Especially when his voice built up to the F you when the people go into the booth and pull that lever for Donald J Trump.
Brings a tear to my eye.
This one is for you rags.

The Libs still can’t come to grips with Hillary’s defeat and are conjuring up more and more ridiculous scenarios to assuage their hurt feelings

“A new narrative is taking form among liberals and never-Trump Republicans.”

Not a dimes worth of difference between the two.

See, this is so interesting…

the turd swirl just can’t shut up. It’s a mob scene.

I’m the conservative I’ve always been. Rush abandoned what he used to say he believed. I didn’t. And I’m “the enemy” to T-rump suckers.

Which is fine. I’m a happy warrior.

True Conservatives don’t like Trump because even though he does some good things, he does other things that they don’t like.

True Conservatives prefer a candidate who does everything they like except win.

“Obama’s gonna lead’, all right. He’s gonna lead’em from behind!

I live in Tennessee and we are totally embarrassed by Bob Corker. Even though Corker ran against a horrible Democrat (Harold Ford), many are still sorry we elected him.

Rags, I have a question for you. What is politics without pragmatism? We were given a choice between a thoroughly corrupt Democratic candidate and a possibly morally bankrupt Republican. You go with the hand you are dealt. With the future of the country on the line, could we stand another Kagan or Sotomayor on the Supreme Court?

I was a staunch Cruz supporter and had my doubts about Trump’s conservative bona rides. I must say, so far, I have been pleased. There is no doubt in my mind as to how I would have felt after a Clinton victory.

So please. Stop being such a virtue signaling conservative. It’s people like you (on our side) and pretty much all the intellectually dishonest Democrats that make me satisfied about my choice. You are becoming a caricature of a bitter purist, perhaps a member of the purist cult.

    Ragspierre in reply to Redneck Law. | June 18, 2018 at 8:38 am

    See, this is fascinating.

    I don’t care how you voted.

    Duh Donald is POTUS.

    He pursues policy and does things with which I strongly disagree and I say so.

    Other times I’ve given him an attaboy.

    People who USED to profess conservative values have abandoned those to align with T-rump. MANY conservatives have noted this and are disturbed by it.

    There is a cult of personality around Mr. Establishment, as evinced beautifully here. You can easily pick out its members. It does not, by any means, include most people who voted for the man.

    I am regularly called various things for the simple expression of my opinions, and lied about lavishly. For instance, you depicting me as a “virtue signaling purist”.

    Anyone with any objectivity can see the changes Rush has made over the last few years. That isn’t “pragmatic”. In my view, it’s a surrender.

    You can support Duh Donald without being ensorcelled. And, IMNHO, you better.

      Barry in reply to Ragspierre. | June 18, 2018 at 9:32 am

      “There is a cult of personality around Mr. Establishment…”

      Perhaps aided by the true cult, nevertrumpers, using terminology like “Mr. Establishment”, in spite of the fact that he ran against and defeated the republican “Establishment”, the democrat “Establishment”, and the entire deep state “Establishment” that uses the power of the federal government in an illegal attempt to overthrow “Mr. Establishment”.

      It is the “Establishment” that is against President Trump.

      It’s right on par with calling Trump a collectivist by using such a broad definition of such that even Reagan would be a “collectivist” under the definition. And without doubt, Bush 1 & 2 plus the other republicans you voted for, McCain and Romney.

      Everyone with an IQ above 70 see’s this for what it is, simply juvenile.

      What we have here is what the left always does, use the term that applies to their selves. Rags is the Establishment.

        Ragspierre in reply to Barry. | June 18, 2018 at 9:50 am

        Of course, you simply lie. Stem to stern.

        Rags didn’t spend his life entire swimming in the cesspool of New York City corruption, and has never paid for a political advantage in his life. Your cult-leader has admittedly done that. Indeed, he’s bragged about it.

        T-rump IS “the Establishment” and he still swims happily…and VERY profitably…in the swamp which he lies about draining. Not just him, but anyone who thinks they can leverage any relationship with him. You can read all about it, if you’ve got the guts.

        He’s a New York Progressive, and that IS a collectivist BIG GOVERNMENT thing. Recognizing that is being “pragmatic”. Denying it is simply delusional.

          Barry in reply to Ragspierre. | June 18, 2018 at 10:04 am

          “He’s a New York Progressive, and that IS a collectivist BIG GOVERNMENT thing.”

          Sorry, you can create any pet names and memes that make you feel good about yourself, and you’ll still have to face the facts, Trump will be, and has been, the most conservative president in the last 50 years. Only the cult of nevertrumpers fail to recognize the truth.

          Recognizing that is being “pragmatic”. Denying it is simply delusional.

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | June 18, 2018 at 10:18 am

          I’ve given him his due when he’s done SOME rightist things that were good. But you have to be VERY selective to call him a “conservative”. He isn’t one. He’s said so, and demonstrated it all his life.

          Imposing taxation on an entire economy by a diktat predicated on lies is NOT anything but collectivist central planning.

          Calling for ANOTHER “infrastructure” boondoggle is pure Keynesianism, which we all know has NEVER worked to do as advertised.

          Barry in reply to Ragspierre. | June 18, 2018 at 10:39 am

          ” But you have to be VERY selective to call him a “conservative”.”

          I’ve never called him a “conservative”. Period. What I said above, and I said many times before the election is “Trump will be, and has been, the most conservative president in the last 50 years”. What I actually said in the past and meant to say above is “effective conservative”. It matters little to anyone with functioning brain cells what label you try to pin on anyone else, what matters is what is done.

          I reject your notions of conservatism. So did President Ronald Reagan:

          “I believe that if trade is not fair for all, then trade is free in name only,” he said. “I will not stand by and watch American businesses fail because of unfair trading practices abroad. I will not stand by and watch American workers lose their jobs because other nations do not play by the rules.”

          It is a simple fact, the United States used tariffs to a large extent until the end of WW2, when the competition had been wiped out.

          I’m on record supporting free trade, over and over, but not sucker trade, which is not a conservative position in spite of your attempt to equate it as such.

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | June 18, 2018 at 11:19 am

          You’re lying again. Reagan followed a pro-trade policy with one major exception, and you chose to cite to that one exception as indicative of his policy. What he did WRT Harley-Davidson was wrong, and fundamentally unnecessary. Just as the auto bail-outs we’ve seen. They did NOT save jobs, they saved union contracts.

          You cannot counter the FACT that Mr. Establishment has a trade policy indistinguishable from Bernie Sanders and the AFL-CIO. It is anti-liberty and anti-conservative. It’s also just terrible for our economy. You support it. I don’t.

          Barry in reply to Ragspierre. | June 18, 2018 at 3:35 pm

          “You’re lying again.”

          Your pathetic standard when confronted with truth is to call the truth teller a liar.

          Pro trade is not the same as free trade. We have pro trade deals all day long, written by crony capitalists to benefit the few.

          Let’s hear it from President Reagan once again:

          I believe that if trade is not fair for all, then trade is free in name only,” he said. “I will not stand by and watch American businesses fail because of unfair trading practices abroad. I will not stand by and watch American workers lose their jobs because other nations do not play by the rules.

          Same thing President Trump is saying. Same thing.
          Which is precisely why your calling President Trump a “collectivist” is the same as calling Reagan a collectivist.

          Lie? No, the only lie is your repeated twisting of the truth. All I have done is print the truth. You can disagree about the policy, but to call me a liar for printing the words you do not wish to acknowledge makes you guilty of precisely what you accuse me and others of.

          This is what progs do.

          Barry in reply to Ragspierre. | June 18, 2018 at 8:06 pm

          “He was the author of NAFTA. Now, lie about THAT!”

          Perhaps you should study some history rather than appear a disingenuous idiot.

          Reagan proposed a North American common market in his campaign. In 1984 congress passed the fast track trade authority. A Canada / US free trade agreement was negotiated and signed into law in 1988 and went into effect in 1989. This was not NAFTA.

          Bush, a globalist, negotiated NAFTA, and it was signed by that collectivist Bill Clinton in to law in December of 1993.

          So, yea, no, either you’re lying or ignorant, Reagan did not “author” NAFTA.

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | June 18, 2018 at 8:13 pm

          Now, show how Bernie Sanders and T-rump differ on trade.

          While you’re at it, define “sucker trade”, and you gives any-flucking-body the right to impose on free peoples’ choices of how to use their property.

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | June 18, 2018 at 10:04 pm

          I’m STILL waiting for you to define “sucker tread”.

          It’s like “neverTrump”. It has no meaning.

          Barry in reply to Ragspierre. | June 18, 2018 at 10:11 pm

          “I’m STILL waiting for you to define “sucker tread”.”

          Geez, tee up a softball would you.

          You’re the definition of sucker trade.

          I’m still waiting for you to explain how Reagan was the author of NAFTA and how you have Bush/Clinton confused with Reagan. I’ll not hold my breath.

        Ragspierre in reply to Barry. | June 18, 2018 at 10:00 pm

        “Our trade policy rests firmly on the foundation of free and open markets. I recognize … the inescapable conclusion that all of history has taught: The freer the flow of world trade, the stronger the tides of human progress and peace among nations.”

        snd…

        “I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don’t know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity.”

        Now, explain how T-rump’s trade policy differs from Bernie Sanders and the AFL-CIO, liar.

          Barry in reply to Ragspierre. | June 18, 2018 at 10:18 pm

          “Our trade policy rests firmly on the foundation of free and open markets. I recognize … the inescapable conclusion that all of history has taught: The freer the flow of world trade, the stronger the tides of human progress and peace among nations.”

          Reagan believed the same thing I believe, and what Trump believes. Free and Open markets. Reagan clearly means on both sides of the trade deal, as evidenced by the following;

          I believe that if trade is not fair for all, then trade is free in name only,” he said. “I will not stand by and watch American businesses fail because of unfair trading practices abroad. I will not stand by and watch American workers lose their jobs because other nations do not play by the rules.”

          Let no one mistake our resolve to oppose any and all unfair trading practices. It is wrong for the American worker and American businessman to continue to bear the burden imposed by those who abuse the world trading system.

          You can apply your whitewash all you want, but everyone else can read.

          President Trumps trade policy is the same as President Reagans.

          How silly. You’re one of the worst liars on the internet.

          “Our trade policy rests firmly on the foundation of free and open markets. I recognize … the inescapable conclusion that all of history has taught: The freer the flow of world trade, the stronger the tides of human progress and peace among nations.”
          –Ronald Reagan

          Who would spit on you and your lies about him, and who was never stupid enough to think that a trade war was “an easy win”.

          NAFTA was, indeed a Reagan notion, as any history of the era will tell the intelligent reader. Don’t take my word for it, anyone. Read up on it yourself.

          The intelligent and intellectually honest reader might also care to look up the protectionist bills that Reagan vetoed.

          I love how inane your use of terms is, and how you can’t even define bullshit terms unique to you.

      Was there an answer in there somewhere?

      “What is politics without pragmatism?”

      An inquiring mind wants to know . . .

This is one of the main mistakes progressives make towards Trump: that he’s a Pied Piper, leading a bunch of sheeple. In reality, he’s much less a cause of his movement than an effect.
He filled a demand among the voters that was being unmet. If he’s removed, the people are not going to thank the Democrats and NeverTrumpers for doing it.

There is something of a Trump cult (similar to the Obama cult, but less numerous), but they are a minor part of things — the same sort of people who mindlessly support sports, teams, personalities, etc., and believe he can do no wrong. But, most of Trump’s support comes from those who generally agree with him, and approve of what he’s doing, or trying to do.

Corker and the never-Trump Republicans despise and fear him because he isn’t a part of their corrupt party establishment. Much of what he wants to do is opposed to the policy of the party leadership, and the donors who own them — they see him as a threat to the system that gives them power, intend to thwart him in whatever ways they can (without directly opposing him enough to turn Trump Republicans against them). They would happily join the Democrats in removing him, if public opinion could be turned against him enough for them to get by with it.

There is a Trump cult in the USA. It is the ANTI-TRUMP cult. The members of this cult live for one ting, the destruction of Trump.

Trump is Trump. He is basically a pragmatist. He laid out an agenda to the American people and, so far, he has managed to keep most of his promises. But, Trump is not controlled by any given ideological group. And, this terrifies them.

Trump is working against the Liberal/Progressive agenda. In fact, he is trying to dismantle it. This terrifies the Lib/Progs. He does not call himself a Conservative and refuses to even pay lip service to staunch conservatives; which gives the conservative anti-Trumpers a “reason” to hate him. Then you have the Establishment. No matter how much a part of the Establishment Trump may have been in the past, he is now working against the interests of the Establishment. So, it is working against him. Then you have the people who, for whatever reason, seem to have a pathological dislike for the man, himself. What he is is the choice of a wide swath of people, 49+%, who encompass some conservatives, independents and even a few liberals. He probably has the widest ideological support group since Ronald Reagan.

Most Trump supporters recognize the fact that Trump is flawed; both as a man and as a politician. They recognize that he has made some mistakes. But, they also recognize that his actions have produced far more positive results for the American people than they have negative results. And, because of that, they are willing to give the man the benefit of the doubt. After all, he is one of the few politicians in the last 50 years who has kept most of his promises.

And his “cult” is about to give him the heave ho if he signs an amnesty bill. And so will the GOP.

If that happens, I’m not voting in November. I’m done with the lies and them looking out for themselves and to hell with me.

To hell with them. Let the Dems take the House and Senate. Let them impeach Trump.

Cause I won’t try to stop them. No more. BUILD THE DAMN WALL.

YOU PROMISED ME A WALL MR. TRUMP. TIME TO DELIVER SOMETHING TOWARDS THAT.

    I see that you do not keep up with current affairs.

    Trump keeps asking for $26 billion to construct a wall. The Republican Congress keeps trying to give him less than $2 billion for that. In spite of that, construct on a wall has started. So, I’m not sure exactly what your complaint is.

    We do not live a banana republic where El Exelente can simply walk into the treasury and remove all the money he wants for whatever purpose. The Congress has to appropriate funds for the President’s use. And, the President has no way to force the Congress to appropriate monies. So, perhaps you are mad at the wrong person.
