From Rush Limbaugh:
Remember, folks, during the presidential campaign, I said, “Twenty-five years ago we were warning about what was going to happen if X kept happening and Y kept happening and if we didn’t stop Z.” Well, now, we’re there. We’re no longer talking about what will happen unless we do something about it. We’re living it. We’re living the collapse. We’re living the implosion of our culture and our society. Politically, morally, religiously, you name it, and it all stems from the fact that no one is allowed to have values. Values are judgmental. You have no right to impose values on people.
So we’ve gotten to the point where nothing is really wrong. There are just explanations for it. And in practically every instance, the explanation and the proposed cure is nothing more than the advancement of a particular political belief or ideology. In this case, liberalism. But before we get into this in great detail, there’s something I need to get squared here. And I don’t think it’s nitpicking to do this. As we got information here on Friday afternoon to tell you what was happening, we passed it along. And it turns out that it was all wrong. It was all wrong, in the substantive sense.
We’ve got a mental illness problem in this country that nobody wants to deal with because they don’t want to really admit it. They don’t want to get to the bottom of finding out why. Because when you find out why we’ve got all this mental illness, then you’ve gotta start looking at the way that we have determined we’re gonna control little boys who are too rambunctious. We have a lot of agendas are at play here.
It seems like everybody is caving on everything these days, because it’s just easier than to stand up and fight for it.
We cannot deny that all around us the institutions and traditions which used to provide the guardrails for our culture and society have been corrupted, and those guardrails aren’t there anymore. They were torn down, actually, a long time ago. They are erected temporarily in certain places. Now we find out, by the way, that the shooter’s mother… You know, if you tell the truth about this — or if you repeat the facts on this and then extrapolate and begin to analyze — you get yourself into big trouble, too.
