Limbaugh: Colbert and the " Entirely Programmed" Left
They call it television "programming" for a reason.-W.E.
RUSH: My friends, I’ve often spoke of the connection Donald Trump has with his audience, with his supporters. I understand it because… Well, I just understand it.
The Democrats do not have such a connection, and I’m gonna prove it to you right now. Perhaps one of the funniest… (laughing) One of the most indicative… This is one of the top five most illustrative, indicative things in this entire past 18 hours or whatever it is. Last night on CBS Stephen Colbert had a reunion of all those clowns from Comedy Central. It was hyped. It was celebrated. It was promoted. There were gobs and gobs of people tuning in to relive some of the great old days when the Democrats were running comedy and therefore running the country.
There is no constitutional crisis. There is no coup other than the one being mounted against Trump. Trump cannot conduct a coup. He already has power. Trump cannot do a coup. He already is president. If there is a coup going on — which we discussed countless times — it’s a silent coup against Trump. So anyway, Colbert goes out there. He says, “A huge story broke just moments ago, less than 10 minutes ago, FBI Director James Comey has just been fired by Donald Trump,” and his audience cheered!
His audience practically gave it a standing O, and Colbert didn’t know what to do. The audience, which is indicative of liberals and leftists all over the country, thought it was the greatest thing they could have heard because that’s what they’ve been conditioned to do: Hate Comey. They have been told that Comey stole the election from them by dumping all over Hillary. They’ve been told that Comey showed all kinds of favoritism to Trump, so they have been conditioned to literally hate Comey.
The Hillary camp has played a role in that; the Drive-By Media has led that charge; the Democrat Party got their digs in. So Colbert goes out there, and he’s fully expecting for his audience to boo and hiss, and what did they do? They cheered it! They gave it a standing ovation because that’s what they’ve been programmed to do. They’ve been told to hate Comey. Colbert was totally taken aback, and he said something like, “Wow, wow. Huge, huge Donald Trump fans here.”
No, there weren’t any Donald Trump fans in that audience last night knowing full well it was a Comedy Central reunion. There weren’t any Trump fans in there. Those were liberal Democrats — robots, mind-numbed. They just can’t keep up with whether they’re supposed to hate Comey or not at this particular point in time. They don’t know who they’re supposed to hate. Can you imagine how confused they are? Their initial gut reaction was to stand up and cheer it, and Colbert was embarrassed. Here’s how it sounded last night on the CBS Late Show…
COLBERT: Huge story that broke just minutes ago, like less than 10 minutes ago: FBI directory James Comey has just been fired by Donald Trump.
AUDIENCE: (wild cheers and applause)
RUSH: Yeah, right on.
COLBERT: (confused) Oh-ho-ho. Wow. Huge, huge Donald Trump fans here tonight.
RUSH: The audience was totally taken aback. They are insulted. They were called Trump fans! They’re not Trump fans. They’re liberal Democrats. They can’t keep up with whether they’re supposed to hate Comey. They don’t know who they’re supposed to hate. And Colbert had no idea. Colbert just assumed that everybody in his audience was sophisticated and knowledgeable enough to understand that Comey being fired by Trump…
See, Trump is the archenemy. Trump at every turn must be booed, hissed, and so forth. “But Trump did a good thing! Trump fired Comey,” they thought. I don’t know how many people think this is a big deal. I happen to. ‘Cause I think it indicates… It’s a teachable moment for Republicans, it’s a teachable moment for conservatives in terms of understanding (if there’s any doubt) what we’re up against. And if there is, you see these people that are on the left are not independent thinkers.
They have not arrived what they believe based on their own thinking, their own calculations. They are entirely programmed. They absorb the media they absorb for instructions — behavioral instructions and all the rest — and that is just one little microcosm.
