Rush Limbaugh predicts a dire future for Americans, according to the Western Journal.

“I actually think that we’re trending toward secession.”

“I see more and more people asking, ‘What in the world do we have in common with the people who live in, say, New York? What is there that makes us believe that there is enough of us there to even have a chance at winning New York,’ especially if you’re talking about votes.”

“I see a lot of bloggers … have written extensively about how distant and separated and how much more separated our culture is becoming politically and that it can’t go on this way. There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs.”

“We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way,” Limbaugh said.

“I know that there is a sizable and growing sentiment for people who believe that [secession] is where we’re headed whether we want to or not. Whether we want to go there or not. I myself haven’t made up my mind.”

“I still haven’t given up the idea that we are the majority and that all we have to do is find a way to unite and win. And our problem is the fact that there are just so many RINOs, so many Republicans in the Washington establishment who will do anything to maintain their membership in the establishment because of the perks and the opportunities that are presented for their kids and so forth.”

After the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, the country came together in an inspiring way. On that terrible day and for months afterward, every citizen of the country was a New Yorker.

But in the years since, that sense of unity has dissipated. Some New Yorkers are no longer New Yorkers following an ongoing exodus from the state’s leftist politics and taxes.

In March, when the coronavirus pandemic arrived on America shores, tribalism won the day, as the establishment media politicized the illness and weaponized it against President Donald Trump. Once-trusted media outlets have since spent the entire year unmasking themselves as leftist partisans to even casual media observers.
