Caller Demands More Follow-Up on Issues the Mainstream Media Ignores


RUSH: Angela, northern Virginia.  Great to have you on the program.  Hello.

CALLER:  Thank you for taking my call, Rush.  I'm calling because I am concerned that the mainstream media, they do not cover and they will not cover issues that could possibly be, you know, I guess not good for the administration.  And I'm concerned that conservative media or talk shows like yours don't cover those same topics, either.  The black pastors that called for Eric Holder's impeachment or want the signatures for that, we heard about it once on February the 25th whenever it came out.  We don't even know the name of these pastors, no one's talking about it.  And I think that now the situation in Ukraine and the takeover of that region, Crimea, those are important issues, but the people who are going to the polls to vote in November, they don't even care about that.  Now, you have a lot of black Christians, a lot of black voters that are in the "valley of decision" because Obama hasn't created an environment for economic growth, but rather an environment to undermine marriage between one man and one woman.

RUSH:  Right.

CALLER:  You also have Democrat men's desire for social order of fatherless children and husbandless women and Democrat men run free of responsibility to women and children.  It's majority Democrat women who don't have fathers for their children because of Democrat men, which is a definite War on Women by the Democrat men --

RUSH:  Right.  Now, you don't expect the media to cover that?

CALLER:  No, I don't expect for the mainstream media to cover it, but I would like to hear more about that from talk shows like yours and --

RUSH:  Okay, I got two things I can run by you here.  I just happen to have 'em here and they're in today's Stack.  But I do want to mention, I did make a big deal of the black ministers' petition effort to impeach Eric Holder.

CALLER:  But what happened with it with it?  I mean, I haven't heard anything else about it.  Just heard the one thing, I don't even know the name of the pastors. I mean, I don't know anything about it.

RUSH:  They're being ignored.

CALLER:  Well, I don't think that you should ignore it.  I don't think that other talk shows should ignore it.  I think from time to time if there was an update to find out what's going on with them and how they're being fared in the black community, if you will, to just find out what's going on with that even if it's just to create a buzz in the communities because people are --

RUSH:  All right, Angela, hang on just a second.  What makes you think covering that is gonna change -- let me give you two stories here.  First one.  There's a poll out.  This is the Washington Examiner, Paul Bedard, an accredited journalist.  "President Obama is going to have to do a whole lot more than promise to make things better for young blacks under his new 'My Brother’s Keeper' initiative, because --" wait for it. In a new poll, "71 percent of voters in a new poll say life for the group is the same or worse than before he came into office. ... Among blacks, some of the results are worse, with just 11 percent believing life has gotten better for African American youths," since Obama was inaugurated.  It's a Rasmussen Report.  Now, where are these people, Angela?  I want to know, because 93% of black people vote the Democrat candidate every year.  Here I got a poll, 71% of blacks are disappointed, mad, frustrated by the first black president.  Where are they on Election Day?

CALLER:  Okay, well, I understand that.  But again, the mainstream media, they're not going to cover this. They're not going to constantly beat that drum and constantly keep a --

RUSH:  Why should we need a poll?  We got 71% of the people expressing they don't like Obama.  Young black youth don't like the guy.  We don't need media on this.  They're saying it already.  Here's another one.  This breaks my heart.  This is the third such story here, Angela.

CALLER:  Okay.

RUSH:  "NAACP Joined Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz for 'Moral Monday' March."

This happened on March 3rd.  Now, let me give you some statistics.  In Georgia, 53.6% of the babies aborted are black.  In Mississippi, 72% of the babies aborted are black.  In New York City, 2012, 65,000 African-American pregnancies, 24,000 births, the others aborted.  Sixty-three percent of babies aborted in Texas are black or Hispanics.  And the annual total of aborted minority babies in Texas is greater than the population of Galveston.  So would you tell me why is the NAACP marching with Planned Parenthood?

CALLER:  Again, it's politics, it's strategy, and they're making sure that those type of numbers that you called out, a lot of people in the black community are black voters, I refuse to think it's just a community, but black voters don't know.  It's not just black voters don't know.  People don't know.  A lot of people just don't pay attention to politics. They don't pay attention to things like Lois Lerner or the Ukraine situation, but if we talk more about these things that they will go to the polls and vote about, I think that we could have a better chance of getting more people to consider switching, if not switching altogether.  And let me say something about President Obama's My Brother's Keeper.  I find it just kind of -- I don't know it's a low blow, considering that the person who said I am My Brother's Keeper murdered his brother.  And it was also a disrespectful remark that he made to God.  That's where the whole situation of My Brother's Keeper even came from.

RUSH:  Right.

CALLER:  So he used a murderer and a person that mocked God or disrespected God --

RUSH:  I know.

CALLER:  -- and was also cursed by God.

RUSH:  And he doesn't keep his own brother.  His own brother's still in a hut.

CALLER: (laughing) His own brother's still in the hut and he used a man who murdered his brother to name his initiative after.  The man is a disgrace, and I think that there needs to be more focus on the discontent among black voters and just what's happening with those pastors --

RUSH:  Angela --

CALLER:  -- what's going on.  I just think --

RUSH:  When Obama announced the My Brother's Keeper program --

CALLER:  Yeah.

RUSH: -- the African-American reporter at CNN, Don Lemon, said, "Today Obama became the black president."

CALLER:  And he was also called the gay president.

RUSH:  This is what he should be doing. He should be focusing on his people.  It's what Don Lemon said.  Now, my point to you is -- by the way, the preacher group you're talking about, I know what they are.  The Coalition of African-American Pastors, and they've got 21,560 signatures so far, and they're trying to get Eric Holder impeached because of various things that he's done and said, rulings, whatever, the way he's running the Department of Justice and so forth. But 71% of blacks disappointed.  They're gonna vote for him.  They're certainly not gonna vote for the Republican when they get the chance.  The black population is being aborted into further minority status with the assistance of Planned Parenthood, which --

CALLER:  No, the black population is constantly being deceived about who and what the Democrat Party are, who they are and who the Democrat Party is.

RUSH:  That's my point.

CALLER:  It's just constant deception.  But I mean we have to do more than just talk about the --

RUSH:  Well, what are you doing?

CALLER:  I'm doing a lot Rush. I just don't want to say it all right now, but one thing that I'm doing right now as far as the War on Women, in the county that I live in, I'm doing the Prince William County Woman on the Street video, and I tell you, Allen West was someone who challenged me because you gave me an iPad, and I was at a fundraiser and Allen West said, "Well, why don't you use your fancy Rush Limbaugh iPad to help do some other things, because we just can't keep talking about it," and he was right.

RUSH:  I thought I recognized your voice and your name.

CALLER:  Yes.  And so, there are a lot of things, and that's just one of the things that I'm doing.  But I'm just saying that you all have a large audience, and I just wish you could do more follow-up on some of the things --

RUSH:  Let me tell you what I'm trying to do here.  You may say, "Rush, what are you talking about Ukraine for?  I mean, Obama's not running again." Okay, so what?  If I had to tell you that there's a theme here... I mean, I've got many: Education, informing is one. I believe that an informed public is the solution, like Hillsdale believes that the more people who know the Constitution, the better. 

I believe in an informed, educated, participating public in all these matters. 

Now, why talk about Ukraine?  I've said this countless times.  If I could wave my magic wand and have people understand what liberalism is and what a liberal is, they'd be finished.  My object is that. That's why I talk about Ukraine.  Here's an example.  This is what'll happen with these people in charge.  That's why you point to Detroit. It's why you point to New Orleans or whatever.

 This is what happens when they are in charge unchecked.  The focus on Ukraine, you mentioned, "Why are you talking about Ukraine? That doesn't matter. Look at trying to get rid of Holder, the black pastors and so forth."  I did mention that.  But at the same time, the overall theme here is, I think if more people were equipped and able to see the ideology behind Obama, he'd never have been elected. 

Instead, they were able to craft this messianic, storybook persona that was not rooted one shred in reality.  The Republican Party was afraid to attack it because of Obama's race, and that doesn't matter to me.  What he believes is what matters to me.  His ideology, the fact he's a liberal/socialist, that's all I need to know to hope he fails. 

So I think everything that I choose to discuss here is rooted in trying to inform as many people with the techniques of being irreverent, serious, sarcastic, humor. Just combine 'em all into one presentation. That's the objective. Everybody's got their pet issues, and everybody thinks that one issue could turn the table, but this must be the third or fourth poll I've seen of how a majority of black people feel let down or unhappy, and it doesn't matter when it comes to time to vote.
