During his Tuesday show, Rush Limbaugh had one call form a man who claimed he was at the festival in Las Vegas, the place which became the deadliest scene America has seen in modern history. The man informed about something that obviously most of the people didn’t take into consideration.
The man who called was identified as “Tim in Orange County, California”. He said that while he was attending Route 91 Harvest Festival the people who were coming together weren’t arguing about politics.
As Limbaugh’s website posted, he stated “Hey, I just want to let you know that I was at the concert over the weekend. I was there Friday, Saturday, and on Sunday. I was on the ground close to Jason Aldean near a barrier, and I saw, you know, and felt the terrifying event. I’m shaken as I talk right now.”
The caller added: “But what I really wanted to say was, you know, to me it was good people that were there — black, white, Hispanic, Asian, you name it, good people enjoying a great time, great music. Not one time did I see somebody wearing a Trump hat. Not one time did I see anybody wearing a Trump shirt. We were just there having a good time.”
On Sunday, the suspected assassin Stephen Paddock, age 64, shot at the audience of the country music festival.
The massacre left 500 wounded and 59 dead people that we know of.
“You said you were there when the shooting began, and you didn’t see any Make America Great hats, there’s nobody talking about Trump, nobody talking about politics. It’s just a bunch of people enjoying the event, the music, whatever was going on. Is that pretty much right?” Limbaugh asked.
After Tim pointed out that he didn’t notice any people wearing t-shirts or hats with “Make America Great Again” slogan, Limbaugh said that not every situation is about politics.
“These are husbands and wives and sons and daughters and little kids at this concert that were being, you know, victimized by this maniac, but it’s not about politics,” Tim said.
Tim believes that courageous police officers who were running towards the shooting without protective equipment to help and save the innocent people were the right example of what actually the law enforcement people are really like.
“You know who was running in? Four police officers without tactical gear with their handguns and their rifles. They were running towards it. They didn’t know where the threat was, they could have been anywhere,” he said. “So I think people should rethink their stance, those that are anti-law enforcement.”
“And these guys were there to give their lives, and a lot of people at that concert did the same thing,” he continued. “They’re just good-hearted people.”
When Tim was asked what motivated him to call, he said:
“You know, the last two days have been kind of a blur, you know, and lack of sleep and just dealing with what I witnessed. But I did read a couple of articles — I don’t remember exactly where, where I had heard somebody referencing country fans, I think it was a comedian or two referencing the country fans as being Trump supporters, so in a way, it wasn’t that big of a deal or we deserved it.”
He was talking about Hayley Geftman-Gold, the CBS senior counsel and vice president, who was outset on Monday after posting on Facebook that she was “not even sympathetic” to the massacre victims because she believed that the country music goers were most Republicans.
“Something to that effect. And it really, really bothered me. You know, I happen to be a Trump fan, but you know what? I love America first. It has nothing to do with politics for me, man,” Tim continued.
“These are good people who did not deserve to get shot or terrorized and killed,” he added. “Simple as that.”
