Rush Limbaugh weighed in on the controversy surrounding the Dallas salon owner who was thrown in the slammer for seven days and fined $7,000 for defying the state’s stay-at-order.
“Folks, this is a tinderbox situation that is, I fear, being replicated in many parts of this country where these authoritarians are,” said Limbaugh. “You know, all politicians have a craving for power. It is a miracle the United States Constitution still rules the roost. It is an abject miracle. It’s a just a piece of paper. It’s just a series of pieces of paper with words on it. It is amazing that after 200-plus years, everybody we’ve elected has decided to subordinate themselves and their power, their desires to it.”
“I fear that’s coming to a change. I think some of these blue state governors and so forth are so infatuated with this new power that have had found that the natural authoritative tendencies that people in politics have…”
Limbaugh led into his discussion of the case by presenting salon owner Shelley Luther’s now famous statement to the judge during her hearing Tuesday.
“Judge, I would like to say that I have much respect for this court and laws, and that I’ve never been in this position before. And it’s not someplace that I want to be,” Luther told Dallas County Judge Eric V. Moyé, the “lifelong Democrat,” during a hearing Tuesday over her defiance of the shutdown order. “But I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I’m ‘selfish,’ because feeding my is not selfish. I have hairstylists that are going hungry because they’d rather feed their . So, sir, if you think the law is more important than getting fed, then please go ahead with your decision. But I am not gonna shut the salon.” More
The salon owner and her clients made a free choice to take the risk. It’s not as if somebody is forcing them to go to her salon. Those that are in fear of contracting the virus can stay home. But don’t punish those who want to exercise their right to work.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
