Rush Limbaugh Issues Dire Prediction for America’s Future

Americans, divided along ideological and cultural lines following the still-contested presidential election, are at a dangerous fork in the road, according to conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh, on his program Wednesday, suggested that the country’s inability to unite around any common or shared vision for America’s future — or past — might actually lead to a national breakup.

It’s hard to disagree with that assessment, especially when you look at the separation between conservatives and the American left.

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.

The Constitution itself is no longer a unifying document for the country, either.

Conservatives, generally speaking, use the country’’s founding document as a road map to play within the rules, while Democrats and the left are more prone to subverting the law and viewing that same document as a roadblock.

America is at a stalemate, and Limbaugh doesn’t see a way out.

After some discussion about media bias and a fundamental disagreement on the facts between warring factions of Americans, Limbaugh on Wednesday concluded he did not see a clear scenario in which the country finds a place of unity.

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

“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,” he added.
