Holder in 1995: We Have to Brainwash Against Guns
RUSH: I found a story from 1995.  It's actually a YouTube video.  We found it.  All I have to do is give you the headline.  You ready for this?  Eric Holder, a 1995 quote: "We must brainwash people against guns."  Can anybody say Fast and Furious?  "We want to have as part of this gun initiative..."  We dug this up back in March, it's a C-SPAN 2 video of a speech that Holder, who was then-US Attorney for DC, he gave to the Women's National Democrat club in Washington, January 30th, 1995.  So we did the transcription ourselves. 

And Holder, in 1995, in this speech as the US Attorney for the District of Columbia: "We must brainwash people to be against guns.  We want to have as part of the gun initiative bill an informational campaign to really change the hearts and minds of people in Washington and in particular our young people.  They're saturated in the media and in entertainment or by the entertainment industry with violence, and I think too many of our young people, in particular our young men, are fascinated with violence and in particular fascinated with guns.  And what we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people and make it something that's not cool, that's not acceptable.  It's not hip to carry a gun anymore in the way in which we've changed our attitudes about cigarettes." 

Well, you see, cigarettes aren't protected by the Constitution, but guns are, so Eric Holder, 1995: "We must brainwash people against guns."  You fast forward to 2009, Eric Holder and Barack Obama institute Fast and Furious.  The ultimate objective was to get people to change their minds about guns.  In 1995 he told a bunch of Democrat women, "We must brainwash people against guns."  It's right here.  If the White House is saying that this motive that we've come up with is absurd, then they've confirmed for us that's what it is.  Thank you, President Kardashian, or whoever you sent out in the White House to berate us for coming up with the obvious conclusion.  Why else would you run guns that could not be tracked without the Mexican government knowing, why would you purposely see to it that AK-47s end up with drug cartels?  What possible reason could you have for that?  Somebody explain that to me.

Feds: Fat People Need Counseling
RUSH: You're walking down the street. You're in the mall. You see an obese person. Do you think, does it cross your mind that there ought to be counseling centers for those people? Does it? When you see a bunch of obese people, do you think that? Is it one of the first thoughts that you have? Maybe the second or third thought? "You know, we need counseling centers for these people. We need the federal government to have counseling centers so these people could be talked to about it."

Do you think that, or do you just thank God you're not and move on? Or do you feel a little sorry or do you wonder how it's possible? Whatever you think, do you think we need counseling centers? Well, from the LA Times: "In a move that could significantly expand insurance coverage of weight-loss treatments, a federal health advisory panel on Monday recommended that all obese adults receive intensive counseling in an effort to rein in a growing health crisis in America.

"The US Preventive Services Task Force urged doctors to identify patients with a body mass index of 30 or more," that's currently one third of us, "and either provide counseling themselves or refer the patient to a program designed to promote weight loss and improve health prospects. Under the current health care law, Medicare and most private insurers would be required to cover the entire cost of weight-loss services that meet or exceed the task force's standards." Now, I don't know about you, but the last thing I think of when I see obese people walking down the street is, "We need federal counseling centers!"

But these people are everywhere in the regime.

They are everywhere, people who think this way about pretty much every form of behavior that they find disagreeable, or that they find repugnant.

Do Liberals Really Want to End Poverty?
RUSH: From Cybercast News Service: "The federal government is not making much headway reducing poverty despite spending hundreds of billions of dollars, according to a study by the libertarian Cato Institute. Despite an unprecedented increase in federal anti-poverty spending, the national poverty rate has not declined, the study finds." Well, we coulda told you that. It's not hundreds of billions. It's trillions of dollars that have been spent since the War on Poverty, started by Lyndon Johnson in the mid-sixties.

And expressed as a percentage, the same number of people are in poverty today as then. So allowing liberals to shower people with never-ending money is not an effective method for fixing a problem. But then I have to ask (because we were discussing this yesterday): Do you think liberals actually want to fix poverty? Do they want an end to racism? Do they want to fix any of this? No! They want credit for trying. They want credit for great, big, heartfelt intentions. But if the problem were ever solved, there would be nothing to blame Republicans for.

They want the money to spend.

They want the money to spend.

They want the money to spend.

They want the money to spend.

And they want the money to spend.

But they don't want to fix the problem.

If any of these problems ever got fixed, it would be the end of 'em.

Nothing to complain about and nothing to blame the Republicans for.
