Limbaugh: Here's the Real Outrage Behind Garner's Death
Rush Limbaugh joined Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" to weigh in on protests that have broken out around the country in the wake of the grand jury decisions in Ferguson and Staten Island and how some people are using them to further their own agenda.
Limbaugh said there is a industry of "grievance politics" that is tearing the country apart.
"This is not good for the country, what's happening here, because it isn't, I don't think, full-fledged legitimate," Limbaugh said. "It's not based on real-world grievance. It's grievance that's being amplified and made up."
He said that President Obama can do a lot to help by telling people to trust the criminal justice system.
Unfortunately, Limbaugh said, the president and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio have recently done just the opposite, making comments that made it seem as if no efforts have been made to improve race relations.
"Is it all perfect? No, it's not. But there's no acknowledgment of any of the progress," Limbaugh said. "If you listened to these people - the president, the mayor of New York - you'd think it's 200 years ago. You'd think we hadn't even started working on these problems and that's not true."
Limbaugh said that for Obama to promote racial division and mischaracterize what happened in Ferguson is tearing the country apart.
"We have people to whom the truth is irrelevant and they're trying to redefine the truth for their own political agenda ... and the president taking sides in this in a way that further divides the country, I find reprehensible and very unfortunate, too."
