The Corpulent Chaos
Oh, look at that. Rush Limbaugh has a plan to unleash widespread violence in order to make Democrats look bad. Raise your hand if you are in any way surprised by this.
Nope, didn't think so.
The dream end of this is that this keeps up to the convention and we have a replay of Chicago 1968 with burning cars, protests, fires, literal riots, and all of that. That’s that’s the objective here.”
Now, I know this is supposed to be serious and all, but I just can't get around the fact that he calls his plan for electoral sabotage and urban rioting "Operation Chaos." Dear God, he sounds like a pill-popping version of Butters.
But, back to seriousness: this is not the first time that a right-wing radio host has encouraged sabotaging the democratic process, and there wasn't exactly a whole lot of repercussion in that case, either. But this is different. Rush has organized his stupid little "Operation Chaos" with the plans of directly causing conflict in the Democratic Party and spreading turmoil. He keeps saying, "Blame Al Sharpton!", but he's the one who wants to throw thermite on a fire. By both Colorado law and federal statute, that counts as incitement to riot.
We might want to let the Colorado Attorney General know about that, huh?
