Arizona Senator John McCain has spent the last few months relentlessly attacking President Donald Trump. He did this once again on Monday, when he blasted Trump for his “half-baked, spurious nationalism.”
Now, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has finally had enough.
Conservative 101 reported that Rush fired back at McCain by addressing him directly on his radio show.
“This is the problem,” Rush said. “What you’re missing, sir, about this nationalism that you despise is its real intention is to once again assert this leadership of the world, to assert this guiding light and beacon of freedom. Because for way too many recent years people in your club have been buying into the notion that whatever the United States has been doing the last 75 years has been hurting people. The United States is the problem.”
“The United States is blamed for climate change. What is that? Destroying the planet, no less! United States is blamed for this, it’s blamed for that. We have to sit here and listen to how socialist and communist worlds and nations are much preferable to ours,” he added. “What world do we lead? The United Nations exists to fleece the United States, to blame the United States. Barack Obama openly admitted that his purpose was to transform the United States, which means cut it down to size.”
“Senator McCain, with all due respect, you’ve got this totally backwards,” Rush concluded. “Your club or members in your club were actively presiding over the decline of the United States as a leader in the world, as a beacon of freedom. Your definition of open and leading the world is to open our borders and let the disadvantaged race in! Sorry. That’s not what leadership of the world means.”
This was in direct response to comments McCain made about Trump in a speech on Monday.
“To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain “the last best hope of earth” for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,” McCain said in the speech.
“We live in a land made of ideals, not blood and soil,” the senator added. “We are the custodians of those ideals at home, and their champion abroad. We have done great good in the world. That leadership has had its costs, but we have become incomparably powerful and wealthy as we did. We have a moral obligation to continue in our just cause, and we would bring more than shame on ourselves if we don’t. We will not thrive in a world where our leadership and ideals are absent. We wouldn’t deserve to.”
