RUSH: When he runs for office in Virginia, her vice presidential nominee? Why, you would not believe how conservative this guy sounds! Proving another of my many often-made points, that Democrats -- in order to win elections, national elections -- have to make people think that they are not who they are. They cannot run as progressives, liberal extremists.
RUSH: You know how I'm gonna get into this email stuff? I'm gonna go back, we got some See, I Told You So's, things that I have told you in recent months, in the past year and a half. Things I predicted. I knew these things were gonna happen. I knew the game was rigged against Crazy Bernie. I knew all this 'cause I know these people. I know the left. I know the Democrats. I know liberals. I know how they operate, and so you'll hear in the See, I Told You So's from weeks, months, and a little over a year-and-a-half ago how I foretold all of this that is in this WikiLeak email document.
RUSH: The left has frightened young people to death. One of the most successful campaigns to scare young people and to keep 'em in line has been this whole global warming thing. It is uncanny how many young people -- and they've been watching Captain Planet since they were five years old, kindergarten, grade school, junior high, middle school, high school. They have been taught that humanity is destroying the planet, their parents and their grandparents. And they believed it. And they believe there's not gonna be a habitable planet by the time they are 60, 65 years old, maybe even before. They really believe this. And, if you take time to understand how they have just been smothered with this stuff, you would understand why the Democrats have made it possible. And this is how using fear, using darkness, using a never-ending crisis rooted in chaos, they keep these people loyal to Big Government command-and-control Democrat-run institutions, all to save the planet.
RUSH: You know, I've made this point constantly. Here's a Democrat carrying a sign, a bunch of Bernie supporters: "America Was NEVER Great. We Need to OVERTHROW This System." That says it all: "America was never great." That's exactly who these leftists are. It's exactly who many in the Democrat Party are: "America was never great. There is no American exceptionalism. We don't like this country from the days of the founding in any way." That's who they are, folks.
RUSH: Trump got a convention bounce and it's a big one, a six-point convention bounce... Believe me. Don't doubt me on this. Despite the smiling and attempts at everything's okay and all is normal that you're seeing from Democrats this week, they're worried. They are panicked. Because Trump was supposed to be nowhere near Hillary. Trump was not supposed to be close, much less leading.
Bernie Sanders may have endorsed Hillary Clinton, but some of his supporters haven’t signed on. Some are planning a protest at the Democrat National Convention that promises to be smelly. I mean that literally.
RUSH: Here is what the Hillary campaign actually said: "Tonight, Donald Trump painted a dark picture of an America in decline. And his answer -- more fear, more division, more anger, more hate -- was yet another reminder that he is temperamentally unfit..." There was no hate last night. This is another Democrat trick. They categorized passion and deep caring as hate. There wasn't any hate for anybody last night. If anything, there was love expressed for people last night.
CALLER: Donald Trump represents America and Americans, and that's why he's doing so well. There is no doubt in my mind that that man is running for this office because he remembers America, its fabric, its foundings, and everything that we are supposed to represent.
RUSH: This is devastating news. They got 75% either positive or somewhat positive, but you know what they're saying at CNN? It may be 75 now, but wait 'til Monday when we get through with this. By the time we talk people down on this Trump will be lucky to be over 50% after that stupid speech after we destroy him on it.
RUSH: "Cops getting shot all the time? Eh! No big deal. Why you think it's anything odd? Why do you think it's anything unusual?" That's really how Obama wants us to look at this? I'm so sick of these "new normals" -- economy in decline, 94 million Americans not working, unemployment rate 12, 15% in reality. And this we're just supposed to accept?
RUSH: If you have a Millennial child, you probably are familiar with their almost paranoid concern with the concept of sustainability. And their need, their paranoia of sustainability derives from what they've been told about global warming. And remember, now they've been told this from the most impressionable years of their lives, age three, four, five, pre-K, kindergarten, they haven't escaped it.
