Rush Limbaugh Says United States “Trending Toward Secession.” He’s Probably Right

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh this week suggested that the United States is heading down a path similar to what resulted in the Civil War, stating that the nation is “trending toward secession.”

Asked by a caller on Wednesday whether conservatism will ever again become the dominant political philosophy in America, Limbaugh responded: “I thought you were asking me something else when you said, ‘Can we win?’ I thought you meant, ‘Can we win the culture, can we dominate the culture.’ I actually think — and I’ve referenced this, I’ve alluded to this a couple of times because I’ve seen others allude to this — I actually think that we’re trending toward secession.”


“It can’t go on this way,” he continued. “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.”

The legendary radio personality remarked that “there is a sizable and growing sentiment for people who believe that this is where we’re headed whether we want to 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.”

Limbaugh appeared to attempt to soften the impact of his comments on Thursday, stating that he was not advocating for secession but merely referencing what others have written about. “I simply referenced what I have seen other people say about how we are incompatible, as currently divided, and that secession is something that people are speculating about,” the host added. “I am not advocating it, have not advocated, never have advocated it, and probably wouldn’t.”

Nevertheless, the conservative personality noted that even if he is not advocating for secession, it remains true that liberals and conservatives cannot peacefully coexist due to deep political and cultural differences.

That, of course, is true. Certainly, there are few people who would actually desire or angle for secession, but the reality is that such an eventuality is becoming increasingly likely in the face of the growing political divide, which is more than just a difference in taste or preference, but a situation in which about one half of the country believes that this is a good nation with a Constitution and founding principles that must be preserved, while the other half sees the nation and its history, culture, and Constitution as inherently evil institutions that must be radically transformed or abolished.

The result is that one half of the country wants to see a continuation of the Republic as conceived by the Founders, while the other half wants to throw it all out and replace it with socialist, globalist tyranny (even though many who vote for far-left policies are oblivious to the totalitarian implications of the feel-good ideas such as the Green New Deal and the Great Reset).

Because of this stark contrast, the country is now only ever one election away from socialist dictatorship. It used to be a cliche to say that “this is the most important election in the history of America.” Now, it really is the case.

Take this election, for example. If President Trump proves unable to stop the stealing of the election and Joe Biden assumes the presidency, he will enact a radical agenda that includes the virtual elimination of the Second Amendment, climate controls over the economy, COVID-19 tyranny, an explosion of the welfare state, social justice, and “hate” laws, and more.

And because Democrats, should they get complete control over all branches of government, want to pack the Supreme Court, abolish the Electoral College, grant statehood to Puerto Rico and D.C., eliminate supposed “voter suppression” measures that in reality just prevent vote fraud, and give citizenship (and thus voting rights) to millions of illegal aliens, they will make it nearly impossible for constitutionalists to be able to win high office or pass their agenda again.

If Democrats get into power and try to force all of this on the American people, will constitutionalists accept it, particularly in light of such strong evidence of voter fraud? Or will they instead decide that keeping their freedom is more important than staying in the Union?

Of course, the reverse is true. Should President Trump prevail in this election, it’s likely many blue states will decide they’d rather break off than endure conservative policies from a president they believe is illegitimate.

Perhaps the union can still be salvaged, but it’s looking less likely by the day.
