The Democrats announced that Philadelphia will be hosting the Democratic National Convention in July 2016, and Rush Limbaugh sees a whole lot wrong with it.
On his Thursday program, the conservative radio giant compared the Democrats holding their convention in the City of Brotherly Love, the city that gave birth to the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, to ISIS holding a convention in Bethlehem.
“I understand the politics of this. Pennsylvania, is an important swing state,” Limbaugh began. “But I also see a lot of irony here. I see a lot of contradictions here. In fact, I’ll go even further. I see a lot of hypocrisy here.”
“Who do the Democrats think they are picking Philadelphia? Philadelphia is where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written, debated, refined and approved. And especially the Constitution,” Limbaugh said. “What in the world are the Democrats going to the site of the creation of the constitution for their convention. It’s like ISIS having their convention in Bethlehem.”
“It’s an odd choice. Bill Cosby’s hometown to boot,” Limbaugh said digging the knife deeper.
“The Democrats in Philadelphia, the home of the Constitution, the thing that Obama is treating like toilet paper! Well, lets say post-it notes,” Limbaugh said. “It is, it’s like ISIS telling us they’re having a mid-campaign strategy session in Bethlehem.”
“It just wouldn’t work,” he added.
