Limbaugh Plans Joplin 'GOP Breeding' Visit for Fourth

Sunday, 03 Jul 2011 05:14 PM

Talk show host Rush Limbaugh is planning a Fourth of July trip to storm-ravaged Joplin, Mo., to speak to citizens as part of an effort to “breed Republicans.”

Limbaugh, who will appear at a rally just after 8 p.m., said one of his goals is to point out that storm victims in Joplin are not waiting around for government assistance. They are picking themselves up and rebuilding their town.

On Friday’s show, Limbaugh explained the reasoning behind the trip, which is also to help his local sponsors for his “Two If By Tea” brand.

“The Fourth of July is a time to celebrate independence instead of dependence, and people in Joplin, Missouri are not at all relying on dependence,” Limbaugh said. “This is something that we're looking forward to doing. I can't wait. We've got a giant banner on either side of the trailer, just like that's on the shrink wrap of the tea, with me as Rush Revere. Now, I am scheduled to speak somewhere around eight o'clock.”

He cited a Harvard study linking Republicans to patriotic demonstration, especially Fourth of July picnics and parties.

“I'm gonna tell you something else is gonna happen at Landreth Park in Joplin on Monday night: We're gonna grow the Republican Party,” Limbaugh said.

“It's a Fourth of July celebration. We have the Harvard survey from yesterday: Fourth of July parades breed Republicans. Young kids at Fourth of July parties tend to end up being Republican. Fourth of July celebrations do not have any patriotic impact on Democrats,” Limbaugh said.

“This is from a Harvard survey. We had it yesterday. Now, you Democrats, you can try to throw cold water all you want on what we're doing Monday night in Joplin, but I just want to remind you what's actually happening Monday night in Joplin, Missouri,” Limbaugh said.

“Not only the continuing rebirth of a great community, and not only the joining of people coming together for a singular purpose [well, actually multipurpose] but we're also growing the conservative movement. Try that!”
