Rush on Polar Vortex 'Warming': 'The Truth and the Left Never Intersect, Anymore'

By James Beattie | January 6, 2014 | 2:27pm EST

Rush Limbaugh said "the truth and left never intersect, anymore" when discussing a Daily Beast article with a headline reading: "Thank Global Warming for Freezing You Right Now."

The article claims that this year's weather could be the coldest in history due to a "polar vortex," a term used to discuss a persistent, large-scale cyclone.  Included in the article is a warning from the National Weather Service to Twin-Cities, Minnesota residents stating that "ANYONE STUCK OUTSIDE FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME WILL BE AT SERIOUS RISK FOR INJURY OR DEATH."

Responding his radio program today, Limbaugh said:

"There's an article - I referenced this a moment ago - it's in The Daily Beast, which is a Tina Brown website, so it means the leftists love this site, 'Global Warming is Freezing You' is the headline.  It's journalistic malpractice.  I'm telling you, the truth and the left never intersect, anymore.  It's stunning how everything, their entire agenda, is based on one lie after another.

"'Global Warming is Freezing You' and the article claims that manmade global warming is slowing down the jetstream, and that's why the cold air is coming down.  They don't explain how, they just say 'it must be,' because, see, they've bought it.  They have bought hook, line, and sinker manmade global warming.  They believe it.

"I've told you, I read the tech blogs.  Stunning, folks.  They believe it.  There's no questioning it.  In a lot of sectors, particularly millennials, young people, those who think they're experts in science.  There's no doubt.  They just believe it.  And so there has to be an explanation.  And whatever man is doing has caused the jetstream to slow down, and that is permitting the polar vortex, cold arctic air."
