Mayor Rahm Doubles Down

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Late yesterday in Chicago on our blowtorch affiliate The Big 89, WLS, reporter Bill Cameron caught up with the mayor, asked him to clarify his comments about gangbangers and kids.

EMANUEL: Not. Near. Kids.  That's what I mean, Bill.  I don't think they should do anything.  But the values are: Our kids are our most important resource.  Stay away from them.  You don't belong near them, and take everything that's associated with being a gang away from them, from the violence to the values that are associated with gangs.  Stay away from our children.  They're too important.  Okay?

RUSH:  What was that?  That was the clarification.  That was the clarification.  Yesterday Rahm warned the gangbangers to stay away from the kids.  We had that bite yesterday, stay away from the kids.  So yesterday our man at the Big 89, WLS, Chicago, caught up with Emanuel for a clarification.  I gotta hear this again.  You can barely hear him.  But once again, he's doubling down on the gangbangers to stay away from the kids.  They're too important.  Just remember the values associated with gangs and stay away from the kids. (laughing) He's speaking so softly, trying to carry a big stick, speaking so softly, trying to intimidate these gangbangers.  Here, listen to this again. 

EMANUEL: Not. Near. Kids.  That's what I mean, Bill.  I don't think they should do anything.  But the values are: Our kids are our most important resource.  Stay away from them.  You don't belong near them, and take everything that's associated with being a gang away from them, from the violence to the values that are associated with gangs.  Stay away from our children.  They're too important.  Okay? 

RUSH:  (imitating Emanuel) "Okay? Got it? Okay?  Stay away.  Not near the kids.  Stay away from the kids, got it?  Got it, Bill?  Got it?  Stay away from the kids.  Values, gang values, remember what the gang values are. Remember what the gang values are! Stay away from the kids. Keep it away from the kids. You hear me?  No kids.  Got it?  Our most valuable resource.  Got it, Bill?  Stay away from the kids.  Kill anybody else, but stay away from the kids, our most valuable resource.  Remember your values."  Unbelievable.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: You know, I listened to this Rahm Emanuel bite. In fact, we've got the correct bite from yesterday. I want to play these two again. 'Cause I'm gonna tell you something. Another thing that we have dumbed down in this country is the quality of our politicians, and I am dead serious. Even the Democrats in office today are ten times worse than the Democrats of yesteryear. I mean, this makes you long for the old days of Daley. If you're gonna have somebody in Chicago that's going to... This is embarrassing. This has gotta embarrass Chicago. Here's the first Rahm Emanuel statement on the gangs. This is what he sought to clarify. This is from Monday night on the CBS Evening News.

EMANUEL: You got two gangbangers. One standing next to a kid. Get away from that kid! Take your stuff to the alley. Don't touch the children of the city of Chicago. Don't get near 'em. And it is about values. As I said then, Scott, "Who raised you? Who were you raised [by]?" And I don't buy this case where people say they don't have values. They do have values. They have the wrong values. Don't come near the kids. Don't touch 'em.

RUSH: Okay. So the mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, was letting the gangbangers know who's in charge. Apparently some people had the same reaction in Chicago that we had here yesterday: incredulity. So our man, Bill Cameron, at the Big 89, WLS Chicago, caught up with the mayor and asked for a clarification. And got this...

EMANUEL: Not. Near. Kids. That's what I mean, Bill. I don't think they should do anything. But the values are: Our kids are our most important resource. Stay away from them. You don't belong near them, and take everything that's associated with being a gang away from them, from the violence to the values that are associated with gangs. Stay away from our children. They're too important. Okay?

RUSH: (laughing) "Okay? Okay? M'kay? Got it? 'kay? The rest of you in Chicago, you're expendable. The kids, hands off!" (laughing) 

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: We want to help mayor Rahm Emanuel in Chicago.  The word's gone out from on high to the gang members: "Leave the kids alone."  How are they to know?  This is always the problem when you're trying to identify people.  The mayor has just said, "Don't kill kids."  Well, what's a kid?  The mayor could say anybody under 50 is a kid and really save lives.  But if he did that, then the gangs would have to seek ID from their potential victims before they offed 'em.  So if he doesn't set an age limit on what a kid is, the gangbangers are now gonna have to seek IDs to make sure that the people they kill are kids, 18 or under, I assume.  What would happen if the gangbangers were told that they had to check IDs before they could kill somebody?
