RUSH: Mark in Spartanburg, South Carolina, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. How are you, sir?
RUSH: Good, sir. Thank you for calling.
CALLER: Absolutely. What I wanted to speak to you about here is I know you've been speaking about religious inequality or equality. I wanted to speak to you about how that inequality and that racism plays out between black conservatives like myself and black liberals. On a day-to-day basis at work, at social events, I'm constantly bombarded with questions. I'm constantly bombarded with racism from other black people, because of being a black conservative. I wanted to kind of get your take on it and what you thought.
I wanted to get that idea out there that black people need to stand up and listen. When you were speaking about the N-word, I believe I heard you say a little while back that something that someone calls you should only hurt if you believe it describes you. That speaks volumes to me. If black people would stand up and pay attention to this Democratic Party, you would see that the reason you are constantly voting for them is because of how many things they give you. If they want to keep you on food stamps, why wouldn't they give that to you to keep them in office?
RUSH: Well, the answer to the first part of your question is: Why do you get grief as a black conservative from liberal blacks, 'cause you're a traitor?
RUSH: You know that, and a threat. You've been called an Uncle Tom or worse, right?
CALLER: Oh, I've been called everything from a racial white slur, to describe that. I've been called white, period, because I did vote for our president, but my eyes were shot at that moment in time.
CALLER: I didn't know exactly what his agenda was.
RUSH: In their minds, you really represent a threat, and you are brainwashed, and you are working at odds against your race because the traitorous nature of what you are doing. There's no tolerance. You're experiencing that there's absolutely no tolerance for your beliefs. It has nothing to do with your skin color. Well, it does in the sense that you're not supposed to be conservative.
You're not even permitted to be conservative, and they're free to call you any name in the world, and they're free to attack you any way they want. What it really comes down to, if you really want to know the truth -- and this is why you should not cave and never be intimidated by this -- this is 'cause, Mark, you ultimately represent a threat to them. That's exactly why they're scared to death of Clarence Thomas and people like him.
