Rush Takes on the Wisconsin ‘John Doe’ Scandal

Mr. Limbaugh spent a lot of time on today’s program talking about David French’s powerful article from the latest issue of National Review. Rush was shocked by the temerity and level of leftist political violence waged against (sleeping!) conservatives. He was unvarnished, and terrific. The complete transcript of his commentary can be found here. We’ll share this slice:

Another piece of information about these Wisconsin raids. And, by the way, they were all innocent. Nobody was guilty of anything. They hadn’t done anything. The John Doe law allowed for anonymous prosecution. Law enforcement was simply allowed to target anybody they thought might be guilty of a crime under the terms of this law, and they had to tell nobody, including the accused. This violated the U.S. Constitution in so many ways.

Just think of a battering ram breaking down your house. You live in suburbia, a battering ram breaking down your house at 1 a.m., and cops, jackbooted or otherwise, come in, steal every telephone and every computer, and you never get them back. And they don’t tell you why. You’re left to assume it. I mean, that’s just one of the things that happened. 

It was all done by a bunch of aggrieved, loser-at-the-ballot-box liberal Democrats, who thought the state was forever their personal fiefdom. And then Walker had to go and beat them three times, and they just lost it, and in the process became exactly who they are. The one plus in this, if there is a plus, is that the Left, in these incidents in Wisconsin, they threw down all the camouflage. They got rid of every mask. They hid behind nothing. Exactly who they are if left unchecked and unopposed, was made obvious. . . .

Okay a blue state plus a big city corrupt district attorney and a popular Republican governor equals a police state reminiscent of the 1930s in Germany, and I’m not exaggerating an iota. This is the Wisconsin story to which I alluded earlier in today’s broadcast. If you compare this to Watergate . . . I mean, Watergate is literally Romper Room compared to this!
