African Caller Discovered Rush, Got Hooked


RUSH: Sam in Memphis.  It's great to have you on the program, sir.  You're up first today.  Hello.

CALLER:  Hey, Rush how are you doing?  It's an honor to speak to you, sir.

RUSH:  Thank you.  I'm doing great.

CALLER:  Yes, sir.  I came to this country, and I heard about you on CNN about Operation Chaos in 2008 and I started listening to you, and since then I just fell in love with you.

RUSH:  Is that right?  You heard about me through CNN and Operation Chaos?

CALLER:  Yes, sir.

RUSH:  Did you know...? When they explained Operation Chaos, did it make sense to you?  Did they explain it right?

CALLER:  No they did not.  I was just asking myself, "Who's this Rush Limbaugh guy?"  So I started listening to you, and you just made a lot of sense to me, 'cause, I mean, I'm coming from a country where our president has been in power for 20 years and I'm just scared what's going on in this country, and my dad, he came --

RUSH:  Where are you from?  What African country you from?

CALLER:  Chad.  Very central Africa.

RUSH:  Chad.


RUSH:  Central Africa.  Okay.

CALLER:  Yes, sir.  He came in 2009 for my graduation, and I told him, "Hey, you need to listen to this guy," and he just loved you since then (chuckles) and I send him a lot. He listens to you every night, nine p.m. back home.

RUSH:  No kidding?

CALLER:  Yes, sir.

RUSH:  No kidding.

CALLER:  (laughing)  He just asked me to send him see I suddenly so and Rush Revere and he's reading both of them right now. So I just want to thank you, and I appreciate what you do.

RUSH:  Do you think he's listening right now?

CALLER:  Yeah, he is, actually.

RUSH:  What's his name? What's his first name?

CALLER:  His first name is Ali. (chuckles)

RUSH:  Well, let's say hi to him!

CALLER:  Ali, he's listening right now. I don't know if he's connected on the phone but he's really happy right now 'cause when I get off the phone with you he's gonna call me.

RUSH:  We've got listeners in Chad now. I tell you, the interesting thing is that you arrived here having heard about me, right?  "Who is this Rush Limbaugh guy?"  And then you heard CNN explain Operation Chaos.

CALLER:  Yes, sir.

RUSH:  You've been here ever since.

CALLER:  Ever since.  Yes.  'Cause, I mean, what you say just make a lot of sense. You know, coming from a dictatorial country, I mean, I know what's going on, and I just think you're right on, man.

RUSH:  You know, that's a lot.  You come here from a dictatorial country, and you probably have a really conscious, everyday appreciation for the differences in freedom here and there. 

CALLER:  Yes, sir. Exactly.

RUSH:  And a lot of Americans, of course, never lived in Chad or under a dictatorship until now, and just take it for granted. But I'm really honored that you're out there, Sam.  Thanks very much for calling.
