Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh said liberals and progressives are having a "temper tantrum" over the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.

"The progressives, the liberals out there are having a little temper tantrum because they didn't get their way. But really, folks, how often are they on the losing end of anything anymore? They're getting gay marriage, they got Obamacare, they've got Obama,” Limbaugh said Monday on his radio show.

"This verdict is not part of a string of defeats for the left. It is an interruption in a string of victory after victory. These are people that for the last four or five years have been used to getting their way on whatever it is,” Limbaugh said.

"Here comes a little burp in the whole process. And for once they're on the losing end of something,” Limbaugh added.

Limbaugh characterized the attitude of liberals to the verdict, saying, "'How dare a jury deny us what we want?' I think these protests are more about that than they are about the fate of Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin."

The media tried to "gin up" the racial aspect of the trial by calling Zimmerman a white Hispanic, Limbaugh said. "That's what they're really ticked off about. They know if they had been able to really make this a racial hate crime, then they would have gotten the verdict they want. But they weren't able to convince people that this really was an event governed by the institutional racism and bigotry and near slavery of this country."

"They’re a bunch of spoiled brats who didn't get their way in this case," Limbaugh said.
