Rush Limbaugh, the voice of conservative America, is issuing a scathing indictment of the Republican Party, saying the GOP has no interest in winning this election or defeating Democrats.
“The Republican Party is not interested in winning. It clearly is not interested in winning,” Limbaugh said Tuesday on his national broadcast. “And if you want to be even more specific than that, it is paramountly obvious that they’re not even interested in defeating the Democrats.”
“It’s just mind-boggling,” he added. “All of these years I’ve been doing this program I was under the impression the Republican Party wanted to beat Democrats. And as the years have gone by, it’s become obvious to me that that’s not their No. 1 objective.”
Limbaugh said Republicans in power who wish to defeat Democrats are a minority, as well as Republicans who seek to win the presidency this year.
“Stop and think of that! It’s mind-boggling when you look at it just that way,” Limbaugh exclaimed.
“And now we have Republicans – to one degree or another – working as hard as the Democrats are to defeat Donald Trump. Look, I know the drill. They say he’s not a Republican. They say he’s a Trojan horse or he’s unacceptable or he’s uncouth or whatever they say.
“But the American people – Republican voters especially – are fed up with the status quo. We can’t stand any more! We don’t want any more of what we’ve had to put up with for eight years and many years prior. The country we know and love is being torn apart and rebuilt in ways that we don’t want, and the Republican Party doesn’t even seem to care about that. The Republican Party seems just as eager as the Democrats to pronounce their voters as extreme kooks.”
The radio host said there is a serious disconnect between party officials and American voters, explaining:
“They’re ignoring their own voters. Trump is winning not ’cause of talk radio, not because of this or that. Trump is winning because people that vote Republican have been let down and disappointed one too many times, and their instinct is being borne out here. …
“Republican voters are fed up with Democrats and Democrat policy. Republican voters and people all over this country are fed up with what Democrat leftist policies are doing to this country, and they want it stopped, and the only agency that can stop it has been the Republican Party, and they have refused to!”

Limbaugh says the GOP has steadfastly sided with donors and lobbyists, creating its current problem.
“It made its own bed, and now they don’t want to lay in it. Now they want to run from the bed that they made,” he said.
“It’s a problem that need not exist, but it illustrates what we’re all really up against here, and that is what has been called the establishment or the elites and whatever. But it’s comprised of both Republicans and Democrats and their membership in this club known as the establishment. Party affiliation is second or third in terms of your qualifications to be in the club.”
Limbaugh lamented that while the GOP is at war with itself, “It’s abundantly clear the Democrats want to eliminate us [Republicans].”
“They don’t even want us around. I think the Democrat attitude is, ‘You know, we’ve toyed with you people for all these years, and we’ve been faking you out. We’ve been making it look like we want you in our club, but we really don’t. … You’re nothing but a bunch of foils, and we don’t need you anymore, and we’re just gonna wipe you out. When this election is over, you’re done, you’re finished. There is no more GOP. Don’t care what you GOP leaders are thinking, you’re not welcome. We don’t want you in our club, and you’re not gonna get in.’ They are unified under the premise of total political annihilation. We can’t unify around a single premise! …
They have total contempt for us. Every person of any rank in the left, from voter on up to cabinet member to elected official in the Democrat Party, has contempt. We are the No. 1 enemy. And they will put aside whatever differences they have.”
