Rush Limbaugh hopes he’s wrong but on a recent episode of his show, he predicted that the Republican and Democratic Party conventions could be targets for the type of violence we saw in Dallas this week.
From Legal Insurrection:
Following the horrific violence and murder of police officers in Dallas this week, conservative talk host Rush Limbaugh made a disturbingly plausible prediction on his show.
Rush suggested that Dallas might just be the beginning of something and that the next targets could be the Republican National Convention and the Democratic Convention after that.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
After Dallas, Rush Limbaugh Predicts Republican and Democratic Conventions Will Be Attacked
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh predicted Friday that both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions later this month will be the next targets of an attack after the police killings Thursday night in Dallas.
Limbaugh first acknowledged what he was about to say was risky and that he had no hard evidence proving that his prediction would happen.
“There’s one more thing about this event in Dallas, and this is going to be risky,” he said. “I could very easily just not say what I’m going to say and let it happen.”
Limbaugh said that in light of the Dallas ambush, which left five police officers dead and seven more wounded, the recent surge in public shootings is not going to end anytime soon.
“But, I think everybody better come to grips with the fact that this is not the end of anything here,” he said.

For once, everyone should hope Rush is wrong.
Our country has seen enough political violence.
