Mexican Listens to Rush, Shockingly Votes Republican


RUSH: This is Salvador in Wichita, Texas. Great to have you on the program. Hi.

CALLER: Hi, Rush. It's a pleasure and an incredible honor to be able to talk to you.

RUSH: Great to have you on the program, Salvador.

CALLER: Thank you. I'm sorry if I'm a little nervous.

RUSH: Oh, you don't sound nervous at all.

CALLER: Well, thank you very much. I was born in Mexico and I came to this country 21 years ago. I've been listening to you for 15 years.

RUSH: Thank you very much.

CALLER: Well, thank you, because you have inspired and you have really pushed forward me and my entire family. I really appreciate it.

RUSH: Wait a minute, I'm confused. Because you should be voting Democrat because of me.

CALLER: (laughing)

RUSH: I mean, if everything I'm hearing this week is right, I'm the reason people like you are not voting Republican.

CALLER: Well, unfortunately that was the main reason for my call, that unfortunately the majority of the Mexican people that come over to the United States, they're already marginalized in their own country. They don't have very much education and they believe that the government is the only source of wealth.

RUSH: There you have it! There you have it!


RUSH: This is exactly right. I'm so glad you've called. We've got an academic study and report by one of our scholars here, Heather Mac Donald at the Manhattan Institute. She's researched it, and she says that. She says that 75% of the Hispanic vote for the Democrat Party has nothing to do with immigration policy. It's all about their view that government is the source of good economics, wealth, things, stuff, what have you.

CALLER: It is, Rush.

RUSH: And you're just confirming it.

CALLER: Yeah. It is a tragedy, because all their potential, all their gifts, are just totally shut down. They cannot produce. If I would have listened to the Democrat Party when I came into this country, I would not be where I am today.

RUSH: Wow.

CALLER: Thank God I've been able to grow.

RUSH: Why?

CALLER: Because they treat you as a lower class. They make you believe that they can provide things for you. But, in the end, you give your dignity to them instead of keeping it.

RUSH: What they do is treat you as though you don't have the ability to do good things for yourself.


RUSH: They treat you as though you're incompetent of getting through life without them.

CALLER: Absolutely. That's totally true. And every conservative that I've talked to, they treat me as a person. They don't see me as a Mexican. They don't see the color of the skin. They're interested in my character, and I'm interested in their character. I don't see them as white, green, blue, whatever it is.

RUSH: That's exactly right. Well, you're the wrong kind of immigrant.

CALLER: (laughing)

RUSH: You're not the kind of immigrant the Democrats are looking for.

CALLER: And in different ways, I've been told that. Certainly I'm told I'm not Hispanic enough. I'm not holding to my culture.

RUSH: Yeah, I know. And there are African-Americans who are told that they're not authentically black, either, if they're not voting for Democrats.

CALLER: And they're wrong.

RUSH: If they get grades that are too good, they're traitors.

CALLER: Yeah. And it saddened me so much because I've seen this movie before, you know? That's the way Mexico is. They just have to look at how Mexico is today. There are so many resources there. There's a lot of people that could produce things but the mentality is not there, and the government will not allow it to happen.

RUSH: Well, it's the nature of tyranny everywhere.

CALLER: That's exactly what's happening here.

RUSH: I mean, tyranny, by definition, has to strip people of their dignity. It has to. It has to strip people of their individuality and of their liberty. That's exactly what tyranny does. And it does it under the guise of compassion. It does it under the guise of helping and protecting people against these evil forces out there who hate them and discriminate against them, because they're bigots and racists and so forth.

Salvador, I'm glad you called. I could not be happier. I really thank you, 'cause that's exactly right, folks. He's just nailed it. And that's why, that's why the Democrats want amnesty, and that's why Hispanics vote for the Democrat Party. They arrive here believing that government's the source of wealth. Government's where it comes from. Government apportions wealth, and your take depends on how much you can learn the system.

 There's a reason, folks, that the Obama administration ran ads on Mexican soap operas on radio advertising food stamps. When you can import a socialist, you're ahead of the game.
