Rush Limbaugh paid a ton of attention today on an article that David wrote for National Review called, “Wisconsin’s Shame: I Thought It Was a Home Invasion.” Here is the transcript from the show:
RUSH: Some truly outrageous things that have gone on in the state of Wisconsin that have happened at the same time as — and as part of — the effort to destroy Scott Walker. A similar effort, almost identical effort was made to destroy anybody and everybody who supported him and vote for him or donated money to him.
This effort was conducted by law enforcement!
Think of it this way: What do you think the greatest fear of the innocent is if law enforcement comes calling? Have you ever thought about this? Maybe some of you have experienced it. You are totally innocent. Nevertheless, you are being pursued. What is your greatest fear? Your greatest fear is the system is gonna totally fail you and that there is nobody to stop an out-of-control cop, nobody to stop an out-of-control prosecutor, nobody to stop a corrupt judge, and that you’re gonna be had no matter the fact that you are terribly innocent.
That is a fear a lot of people have, and it was routinely occurring in the state of Wisconsin during the recall efforts of Scott Walker and during the general elections and campaigns of Scott Walker. Now, everybody knows what he went through. Everybody knows what his family went through. What nobody outside the state of Wisconsin knows — until now, because National Review has uncovered it in great detail with a story by David French.
Nobody knew what just average, ordinary nameless, faceless people who happened to just donate to him or vote for him went through as well. Midnight raids on their homes. Police with battering rams breaking down their front doors at midnight, at one or two in the morning. It was never explained why law enforcement was after them. They were forbidden to tell anybody who was going on. The neighborhood saw it all happen.
The neighborhood, people in the neighborhood wondered, “What in the world did that family do? My God, we got scared to death!” The cops didn’t have to explain anything, whatever the prosecutor wanted — and his name is one I hope you will never forget, as well as the judge involved in this. I hope neither of these names do you ever forget, because they are the essence of liberal Democrat corruption run amok with no limits and no stops whatsoever.
It is frighteningly outrageous. It’s the kind of stuff that Hollywood makes movies about that, when you watch, you might fear it, but you would never, ever dream of it really happening. That’s why it’s in a movie. So I want to try to explain in a little bit more detail what this story is about. But ultimately you’re gonna have to read it at National Review.
RUSH: I’ve been sitting on the Wisconsin Scott Walker story. I got it Sunday night. They sent me a prepublication copy of it, a PDF file. I started reading it, and I said, “There is no way that I’m gonna be ready to do this justice by Monday,” which was yesterday. So I spent a little bit more time on it. So hopefully I’ll get to it today with just enough of a summary to intrigue you enough to make you go read it.
