RUSH: Well, I mean this is a laugh riot. Khadafy is still speaking, going on 90 minutes now. He's in the middle of a rant about how it's the Arabs who have protected the Jews throughout history. He's saying to the crowd at the UN, the General Assembly, he's pointing at them, you're the ones who annihilated them, you're the ones who burned the Jews. You're the ones who gassed them. We have protected them. We're from the same race. We don't want any harm to come to the Jews. The Jews and the Palestinians all want to live under one state. It's you who hate. I mean this is hilarious. He's got a little white book that looks like a white dove logo on the front of it. I couldn't tell what it was. And he claimed the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is in the book. He reached around and threw it back up to the secretary general. I mean, it's a laugh riot. MSNBC, of course, is still sticking with the coverage. Fox has backed out of it. I mean they've seen the futility and the ridiculousness of this, but MSNBC still thinks this is worthy of coverage. On and on, he shows no indication of stopping. He said all medicine in the world should be free.
RUSH: We have a Khadafy sound bite. You know, it is striking to listen to some of these world leaders show up at this freak show every September at the United Nations, and start pounding the desk and giving their speeches. It's frightening, shocking, how similar they sound to America's Democrats, to America's liberals. Here is Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy right in line, bam, bam, bam, down the line agreeing with the American left.
KHADAFY: Medicine should be free of charge. Vaccinations should be given free to children so that capitalist companies make vaccinations and don't have to make a profit.
RUSH: Well, I mean so you got Khadafy trashing capitalism and capitalists, and so does Obama. (imitating Obama) "We're going to take those profits, insurance companies aren't gonna give 'em up easily, but I'm gonna take 'em. Same thing with Big Oil." You know these elitist academics, you don't want to get between them and a buffet. Free food and these people act like pigs in a sty. They love all this big money donated to their universities that pays their salaries, and they don't stop for a minute to think who earned it and how. No. They spend all their time in their classrooms trashing the people who earned the money and how they earned it. Obama does it. The Democrat Party does it, Pelosi, Harry Reid. And now Moammar Khadafy joins their parade.
RUSH: Details of the speech made by Moammar Khadafy at the UN are starting to trickle in. I'm not making this up. Khadafy called on the United Nations to open a new investigation into the assassination of John Kennedy. Khadafy speculates that Israeli Jack Ruby killed Lee Harvey Oswald, a communist, because JFK wanted to investigate the Israeli nuclear reactor. So the new theory for JFK being assassinated is that Oswald did it because JFK was going to investigate the nuclear reactor. Ruby went out there, the Israeli Jack Ruby went out there and wiped out Lee Harvey Oswald. Moammar Khadafy also said the swine flu is not the big threat, that there is a coming fish flu. Now, this man is a kook. He is a literal freak. But here's the thing. He is inspired by Barack Obama. Barack Obama is the leader of the world's kooks now. Obama is a kook. I am convinced he is a left-wing radical freak. He is no different than the fringe people in his base. He is one of them, he just happens to sound a little smarter, he just happens to sound classically educated, but the man is a Loony Tune.
I have weighed this very carefully during the top-of-the-hour break, whether I should say this. But when I saw this little analysis, and it was on maybe some of your network newscasts at the top of the hour: Khadafy called for the reopening of the investigation of the assassination of JFK because somehow the Israelis were behind it because JFK was going to investigate their nuclear reactor. Now, Khadafy and other Looney Tunes are inspired by Obama. Oh, yeah, he's a son of Africa, he's president of the United States now and we hope that he's president forever, Khadafy said. I know it's funny, it's hilarious, but it's not at the same time. You can look at the United Nations as the cantina in Star Wars, the bar scene. And Obama is part of the crowd. He happens to be leader of it. Kooks and freaks on parade, inspired by Barack Obama.
Now, I was making a joke at the top of the hour. This often happens. I tell jokes about the left, and it turns out they're true. I said to Cookie, "Find me the sound bite of Obama accepting the legitimacy of the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad," because he just said that America does not accept the legitimacy of continued settlements in Israel, Jews building their own homes. That's not legitimate. So I said, "Find the bite where Obama said that Ahmadinejad is legitimate." And, you know, I was making it up, but he actually kinda said it. Listen to this.
OBAMA: In their actions to date the governments of North Korea and Iran threatened to take us down this dangerous slope. We respect their rights as members of the community of nations. I have said before and I will repeat, I am committed to diplomacy that opens a path to greater prosperity and more secure peace for both nations if they live up to their obligations.
RUSH: Well, I mean we respect their rights as members of the community of nations. Iran and the Norks, we respect their rights as members of the community of nations. He would never say that about Israel. We don't accept as legitimate continued Israeli settlements. Citizen of the world. I mean he is, in his own inflated mind, he is the president of the world. I have said before, I will repeat, I am committed, I will do, I'll grant you permission or I will not grant you permission. We're going to do it as I say. We're going to do it as I think. He's a kook, a dangerous kook. Castro loves the guy. I mean look at the people that love the guy, Castro thinks he's the greatest thing since free rice cookers. I mean the Russians and the Iranians are laughing at him. They've tested him twice, and he just wilted.
Now, listen to this. Of all places, this is in the science section of the New York Times. This next story is in the science section of the New York Times. "In the early 1980s, according to newly released documents, Fidel Castro was suggesting a Soviet nuclear strike against the United States, until Moscow dissuaded him by patiently explaining how the radioactive cloud resulting from such a strike would also devastate Cuba. The cold war was then in one of its chilliest phases. President Ronald Reagan had begun a trillion-dollar arms buildup --" trillion-dollar arms buildup? What the hell is that? And we don't hear about trillion-dollar health care fraud? We don't hear about $12 trillion in deficit. Trillion dollar arms buildup? I know it's the New York Times, but still, trillion dollar arms buildup? The federal budget in 1989 was not even a trillion dollars, the whole budget when Reagan left office.
Anyway, "Dozens of books warned that Reagan's policies threatened to end most life on earth. In June 1982, a million protesters gathered in Central Park." This is true. "Some Reagan aides talked of fighting and winning a nuclear war." No, they didn't. They were expressing policy and the supremacy of the United States should we be attacked! Good Lord, this is published yesterday. "Dozens of books warned that Reagan's policies threatened to end most life on earth." The story is written by William J. Broad. "Barack Obama, then an undergraduate at Columbia University, worried about the nuclear threat and later wrote as a student and a journalist about ways to avoid global annihilation. The future president didn't know half the danger." How in the world do you take a story, the central theme of which is Castro tried to get the Soviets to nuke us, you throw in there that Reagan threatened the world. Castro wanted the Soviets to nuke us, they work into the story that it was Reagan who was a threat, dozens of books, and somehow they have to worm it in there that the kook-in-chief as a student was worried about nuclear annihilation and warning and writing of ways to stop it. In the eighties he was 20 years old, he was smoking whatever. You've seen the pictures, wearing the Panama hats.
"The National Security Archive, a private research group at George Washington University, recently made public documents that reveal the nuclear threat in new detail. The two-volume study, 'Soviet Intentions 1965-1985,' was prepared in 1995 by a Pentagon contractor and based on extensive interviewing of former top Soviet military officials. It took the security archive two years to get the Pentagon to release the study. Censors excised a few sections on nuclear tests and weapon effects, and the archive recently posted the redacted study on its website. … In the early 1980s, the study quotes [a Soviet general staff officer] as saying that Mr. Castro 'pressed hard for a tougher Soviet line against the US up to and including possible nuclear strikes.' The general staff, General Danilevich continued, 'had to actively disabuse him of this view by spelling out the ecological consequences for Cuba of a Soviet strike against the US.'"
Castro loves Obama. Castro is a freak. Castro is a kook. I mean these are dangerous thug murdering dictators, don't misunderstand. But all the world's raconteurs love this guy. They love this guy because he shares similar views about the United States with them. So Castro wants to nuke us, and the New York Times finds a way to put Reagan in the story as the big threat, and then includes Obama studiously working even as far back as 1985 on how to protect the world from a nuclear strike. I mean I want to throw up.
RUSH: We got a couple more sound bites here from Moammar Khadafy at the United Nations this morning. He spoke for 90 minutes, and again, it's the Star Wars bar scene. Keep in mind, now, it's an organization of kooks, by kooks, and for kooks, and the guy running it is the kook himself, Barack Obama, he is a kook, he's inspiring all these people. Here's number one of two bites of Moammar Khadafy.
KHADAFY: In the name of the African Union and in the name of 1,000 traditional kingdom -- African kingdoms in your own name, I would like to seize this opportunity to present the congratulations to our son Obama because this is the first time that he is attended with us the General Assembly in his capacity as the president of the United States, and we greet him because it is the hosting country of this gathering.
RUSH: And he continued to refer to Obama as our son, meaning a son of Africa. You know, Khadafy heads up the African Union, whatever it is, I think that's the name of it. He kept calling Obama "our son." Somebody call the birthers out there. Khadafy just may in fact be one. Here's the next bite. This is all you need to know about Barack Obama from the lips of Moammar Khadafy.
KHADAFY: This is an historic event. One day the black doesn't go where the whites go and cannot be in a bus where the whites is, now the American people, the black African Kenyan voted for him and made him a president, this is a great thing. We're proud of that. You are the beginning of a change. He did go for a change but as far as I'm concerned Obama is a glimpse in the dark for the four years or the next eight years and I'm afraid that we may go back to square one. How can you guarantee America after Obama? Can you guarantee after Obama how America will be governed? No one can guarantee America. We are content and happy if Obama can stay forever as a President of America.
RUSH: Now, what are we supposed to do here as American citizens? Here is this lunatic who openly applauded the return of the Lockerbie bomber, had his own son escorts the bomber back from the UK, gets off the plane out there in Libya, through a cheering throng, this lunatic shows up today, makes a speech, "We love Barack Obama, and we want Barack Obama to be president forever. If he can't be president forever it's back to square one." He's talking about our president. You know, Ahmadinejad is gonna speak tonight and he's got a big challenge. He's gotta follow Khadafy. I am not going to be watching it. I am going out to dinner tonight with some friends and I am paying people good money 'cause it's worth it to me to not have to watch it myself. They'll watch this and give us the sound bites tomorrow.
RUSH: Folks, now, don't forget, I'm holding here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers, it's actually a YouTube video, we got a transcript of it here, of June 11, 2008, and in it Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy says that Obama suffers an inferiority complex that might make him behave whiter than the white. And the inferiority complex that he suffers is that he's really a Muslim but he can't admit it. So Khadafy, you know, right out of the Star Wars bar scene today up there making a speech, "We love Obama, president forever, black man in Africa, our son." Now, you gotta keep in mind that Khadafy keeps calling him our son, Kenyan, Khadafy says he's a Muslim. Now, I'm wondering, did the Obama administration go to Khadafy today and say, "Look, do not celebrate Obama, it is not going to be helpful, Moammar, if you go out there and celebrate Obama." Just like they told him, "Look, the deal is, we're going to release the Lockerbie bomber, but you don't have a celebration for the guy," and they did do that, and Khadafy flipped 'em off.
Maybe the Obama administration did go to him and say, "Look, Moammar, we love you, man, but you can't start praising Obama. You can't start praising him because it's not going to help us." Maybe they did it and he just didn't listen to them like he ignored them on the Lockerbie thing. If I'd gone to the United Nations and made a speech and I've got Moammar Khadafy following me praising it, I'd really question myself. I would ask if somebody injected me with some mind-altering poison. It doesn't seem to bother these guys.
