Limbaugh: Fake Bombs to Democrats a Political Stunt Ahead of Midterm Elections

Rush Limbaugh thinks Wednesday’s pipe bomb scare is a false flag operation meant to make voters feel sorry for Democrats just ahead of the 2018 midterm elections only two weeks off.

We have had two years of Republicans being screamed at, threatened, assaulted, and shot, but suddenly two weeks before Election Day a few fake, non-exploding bombs were sent to high profile Democrats. It all smacks of a political stunt as opposed to terrorism, at least as far as conservative talk giant Rush Limbaugh is concerned.

As the so-called “explosive devices” were being discovered by law enforcement on Wednesday morning “mailed” or delivered, or somehow found on the way to several high profile Democrats, Limbaugh took to the air to offer a healthy dose of caution over the bombs.

As seen in transcripts on his website, Limbaugh said that the whole situation stinks like a political stunt.

Firstly, Limbaugh noted that these “bombs” were so ineptly mailed, packaged, labeled, and constructed, that he felt they were meant to be found before being delivered. “Were these bombs intended to be discovered in screening?” he wondered.

Furthermore, he doubted these devices emanated from any conservative.

“It doesn’t make any sense for a Republican or conservative to do this,” Rush said. “If they really care about winning these elections, this makes no sense to do. This is gonna be instant fodder for the Democrats and the media to blame it on Trump and his supporters … It doesn’t make any sense for … a Republican or conservative, to do this, if they care about the elections. None whatsoever.”

On the other hand, it made perfect sense for a left-winger to perpetrate this hoax bombing.

“Would it make a lot of sense for a Democrat operative or Democrat-inculcated lunatic to do it? Because things are not working out the way they thought,” Limbaugh said. “Things that are supposed to cement it, like the Kavanaugh trick backfires, and these mobs are backfiring. They are not achieving their objectives.”

Limbaugh also pointed out that those who were the intended recipients of the bombs (Obamas, Clintons, Brennan, Holder, Schultz) are all Democrat hasbeens that do not worry conservatives overly much right now.

“Who on our side’s worried about the Clintons? We’re laughing at ’em. A nationwide stadium tour with Bill and Hillary? Are they gonna have the ‘Bimbo Eruption Section’ where those babes get comped? And Obama? Folks, Obama?” Limbaugh asked. “I’m telling you, he can’t draw crowds. He’s out there trying to claim credit for this economy when he wouldn’t know how to create it!” he continued. “In fact, the Democrats are the people that have people on their side that love bombs! Bill Ayers! One of Obama’s buddies, in fact. I’m not saying that there’s any connection. Do not misunderstand me. But Alessandra Bocchi is right on the money here.”

Others have questioned these purported bombs, too.

Author Paul Sperry, for instance, noticed a lot of suspicious elements to these devices.
