With American politics heating up to the point of people being publicly intimidated and verbally attacked in the most vicious of terms, radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh says there’s only one thing in the mind of leftists that is preventing them from gaining power.

And that thing is elections.

“It’s becoming clear to the left that the only thing standing in their way now is elections,” Limbaugh said Wednesday on his national broadcast.

“If they can find a way around that, then they don’t need to worry about appealing to people or getting out the vote or coming up with ways to convince people to vote. If you look at the way the radical left is going with this intolerant bullying and intimidation of anybody who disagrees with ’em, and the desire to stop any expression of any alternative view or way of thinking?

“That has a natural conclusion. If you’re gonna shut people up, if you’re gonna bully ’em, if you are a gonna shut ’em down, if you’re gonna make sure they cannot be heard say on a college campus or in a public protest – if you’re gonna make sure they can’t be heard in the classroom or on Facebook or Twitter – then how far is it down the road where you don’t want them to be heard at the ballot box?

Limbaugh said he did not think such a thing is happening now or would happen within a decade, but added, “Who knows?”

“I’m telling you that they’re gonna start thinking this way, because in their perverted worldview, the biggest problem they have right now is they’re losing elections. And their way of thinking is, ‘Well, we got a get rid of elections then.’ If elections are the problem, rather than figuring how to win ’em since that’s becoming problematic for ’em, ‘We just gotta find a way to get rid of ’em.’ Do not laugh. This may happen some years down the road long after we’re all gone, and I hope somebody remembers that this was uttered as a potential possibility way back when in the early 2000s.”

Limbaugh said he’s well aware some people will laugh at his analysis, but he’s standing by it:

“What do you think open borders, mass amnesty is about? If American citizens won’t vote for you, then make sure a bunch of people get into the country who will. Don’t doubt me on this, folks. These people have such an entitlement and quest for power that leaving it up to public opinion among a bunch of dolts and uninformed, uneducated hicks? That’s not gonna happen. That’s not gonna be allowed to happen for very long.”
