RUSH: Thomas Sowell has an excellent column. I saw it on Drudge. It's actually posted at WorldNetDaily.com. Dr. Sowell, I'm sure if you read this column, you'd say, "Yeah, yeah, yeah! Exactly! It's exactly right. That's exactly what I think." He chronicles a couple of examples or three or four examples of things and points out how there isn't any thinking anymore. We're not teaching thinking.
People don't think. In fact, thinking is discouraged.
He uses, as one example, Geraldo Rivera as a thoughtless person, as someone that does not think. Geraldo was on Fox earlier this week really ripping Drudge because of what was on Drudge's website. Drudge at the top had nothing but immigration stories, the horrors of what's going on with these children at the border, the Border Patrol, all these things that you know.
Geraldo was ticked off that Drudge was doing it.
He said Drudge was gonna "start a Civil War." He said that Drudge was making things up, that Drudge is focusing on things that normally wouldn't even make the news 'cause he's got an agenda! Sowell said, "So? What's the matter with that? If you don't want it, don't look at it. Why do you have to shut it down? Why does everybody want to shut things down and remove it from the public square? It makes you nervous? You don't want to deal with it?"
People have stopped thinking and don't even consider alternatives.
It's really, really good piece.
RUSH: Now, I've got a piece here by Juan Williams writing at TheHill.com. The comments I would have about this piece are almost an expansion of the point that I just made. It's headlined: "Holder Exclusive: 'Proud to Be an Activist.'"
Juan Williams: "Holder spoke with me in Philadelphia after getting a warm reception for a speech to the nation’s criminal defense lawyers. ... Despite his bridge-building, the first black attorney general serving the first black president remains critical of how conservatives managed the Justice Department during the Bush administration. 'In the years, I think, before I came to the attorney general’s office the department lost its way,'" Holder said, i.e., Bush's fault.
"He added: 'The justice system is part of the larger society and to the extent there are racial issues we are still grappling with, it is not a shock that you are going to see them in the justice system... (There is) a whole range of ways the justice system, if it is run properly, can make this country the country it wants to be.'" Well, folks... (chuckles) What does that mean? It means exactly what I just said to you. They're gonna use the justice department...
The whole point of this piece is how the attorney general is "proud to be an activist." Sorry. That's not what attorneys general are, folks. They are not supposed to be activists. They are law enforcement officers, and justice is colorblind. "Sorry. No, no, no! Not with us finally in power. Not when it's our turn. There is no colorblind here. There is no colorblind justice and there is no colorblind.
"All there is is a chance to make this country finally be what it should have been," is what Holder is telling Juan Williams, and Juan Williams is going (applauding), "Yeah, right on! You say it," and he writes it. Eric Holder sees the entire world through race-colored glasses. Here's Juan Williams: "Holder remains indifferent to conservative protests that he is an 'activist' looking for trouble by digging into what he calls 'policies [with] disproportionate impact on communities of color.'
"'If you want to call me an activist attorney general, I will proudly accept that label,' he said. 'Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job. The responsibility of the attorney general is to change things [and] bring us closer to the ideals expressed in our founding documents.'" It's just the opposite, folks. That is said so the people don't catch on to what's really happening.
There is no fealty to the founding documents. The founding documents are the big enemy. The founding documents are the obstacle! The founding documents are the only things standing in their way. That's why they want judges everywhere to be able to change the Constitution by rewriting it as federal statutory law, by the way. In some cases constitutional law.
"Later, [Holder] defiantly added that critics who say his department includes an 'activist civil rights division and this is an activist attorney general -- I'd say I agree with you 1000 percent and (I am) proud of it,'" Holder says. So I think Holder here is just as confused about his job description as Obama is. The Constitution says the president and his top law enforcement officer are supposed to enforce the law, not ignore the ones that they think are unjust or immoral -- and they're not supposed to make up new ones.
But these two guys are children of the sixties, no matter their actual ages, and they're practicing civil disobedience from inside.
That's what's happening.
RUSH: I didn't forget. I just didn't have time. It didn't work today. But the feminazis and the transgenders and the woman caught shaving her privates and getting a park-and-drive or whatever. That's coming up tomorrow. (interruption) Well, if it fits.
