Said Rush Limbaugh today, attempting to explain the recent pieces in liberal media fretting over the suppression of the conservative viewpoint on campus. So the idea is that the liberals are splitting apart, with more moderate liberals — such as Hillary supporters — beginning to regret the left-wing indoctrination of college students. The young people weren't supposed to lurch all the way left. They were only supposed to loathe conservatives, not soften to the charms of Bernie Sanders.
ADDED: Interesting to see Rush using the phrase "off the reservation" after the trouble Hillary had with it so recently.
BUT: I think Rush intentionally invoked Hillary's "off the reservation" remark, because he's talked about it so much, so recently. Here ("she's used to men -- she's got a lot of experience with men -- 'going off the reservation,' insulting Native Americans, by the way, on that, at the same time") and here ("Yeah, she's had to deal with men who go off the reservation.... And Bill never has been off the reservation regarding her career advancement. Now, being off the bedroom reservation? Yeah, constantly"). And here:
Now, then, this off the reservation comment. Trump's saying that that was offensive to him. I think what he's talking about here was, "Well, who lives on reservations? Native Americans, the original owners of this land, the people who were the one with this land when while the European settlers came here and basically took it away from 'em."AND: Here:
And here's Hillary talking about all these guys "off the reservation. Is that what she thinks of Native Americans, that they ought to be on the reservation all the time?...
They don't allow Republicans to get away with that. What do you mean, "offensive figure of speech," and "everybody uses it"? Well, we're gonna start holding Hillary to all these kinds of things, too, and every other Democrat....
She says she has a lot of experience dealing with men. She's only been married to one guy -- men -- who sometimes get off the reservation. I think she's been betrayed by a whole lot of guys. Just my personal opinion, and this is kind of a reveal here. When you get right down to it, she's saying she has a lot of experience dealing with guys like Trump because she been married to Bill Clinton.
That's what she's saying. Being married to Bill Clinton is what has prepared her for Trump, right? And when you get right down to it, that sums up her experience! That is it! And that's another reason why Millennial women say, "Wait a minute. Why are you so imminently [sic] qualified?"
Everybody's being told how qualified Hillary is, how wonderful Hillary is, how great, and Millennial women are saying, "For what?" They are just learning about the Hillary and Bill Clinton era of the 90s. They didn't live through it.... They didn't live through the media era of trying to spike the story.... As they come to learn about it their take on this is not gonna be in any way sympathetic to Hillary. They're gonna say, "What the hell did you put up with this for? We wouldn't. We don't."
