Rush Limbaugh (yes, that one) has written a children’s book.
Given his fiery and controversial persona, a book written by RushBo himself and intended for our sweet, impressionable and innocent children might sound pretty horrifying to some. Like “Oh God, what did they ever do to deserve it” horrifying. Like, hard-line evil conservative indoctrination, troll-level Southern plantation horrifying.
But it’s less scary and more… well… see for yourself.
Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans. That is the title, I kid you not.
“Rush Revere is a substitute school teacher at a middle school anywhere in America, and he will take a couple of students with him to the first Thanksgiving, and they will learn all about it. Again it is a unique way of reaching the target audience here, which is America’s young people — who are, sadly, not being taught what is in this book. And what’s in this book is the historical record, accurate historical record of the Pilgrims. It’s who they were, why they existed, where they were, how they got here, what they did when they got here, and what they did and why it mattered and related to the founding of this country.”
That is the book’s description. Again, I kid you not.
That’s the cover. This thing is real.
Even if you think that Rush Limbaugh is the most odious and evil pundit alive, you can’t deny that he’s a genius. He’s not an idiot. He didn’t write this children’s book to stoke his ego like his critics will inevitably suggest. He probably didn’t even really write this book to educate children about historical American icons. He did it for one reason and one reason only.
He did it to piss off liberals.
If you would like to make Rush Limbaugh’s “liberal head explosions” experiment a success, you can look for his children’s book on October 29th.
