This past Thursday, Major General Harold Greene was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. Some wondered why President Obama wasn’t there. Or, barring the president’s unavailability due to important events, why Vice President Joe Biden didn’t show up.
Detroit Police Chief Urges Citizens to Arm... Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s Non-Sense Ferguson Column...
RUSH: Mr. Snerdley walked in and said, "Boy, this thing with Rick Perry, can you believe what a farce?" It's not a farce, folks. Now, I'm not gonna be getting to Rick Perry right off the bat here, but I wanted to mention something about it to get it on the table. It's not a farce. It isn't a joke. Sadly, it's not even a laughing matter. This is dead serious. Not that he's done anything wrong. What's dead serious about this is the Democrat Party and their ongoing effort to criminalize political differences or opposition.
RUSH: David Carr, writing for the New York Times, claimed that nobody knew about this story until Wednesday of last week and that this story didn't become a story until Twitter got hold of it. This story became a story because of a hashtag. That's all that happened here. If it weren't for Twitter, you wouldn't know about this. That is as bogus and irresponsible as I can think.
RUSH: Myths are what make up the daily Drive-By news agenda, and that is the daily news agenda of the Democrat Party. The myth that is driving what happened in St. Louis is that white cops shoot black kids all the time. That is the myth. That is the image being created. That is the purpose of all the coverage. It is rare. The truth of the matter is, it is rare. The simple fact of the matter is that the greatest incidence, the largest number of criminal incidence against blacks is perpetrated by blacks.
RUSH: Once again a video is being blamed for all the problems. First the video in Benghazi, now a video in St. Louis.
RUSH: According to him, it's not even locals. You got people in town from Oakland. There's a huge New Black Panther chapter there. So they're in town inciting this, initiating the violence, and he says the police reaction has been pretty intense. Well, why wouldn't it be? Private property is being destroyed, for crying out loud.
RUSH: I've just been handed a note, ladies and gentlemen. It is from the Washington Post, now owned by Jeff Bezos. Here's the headline: "County Investigation: Michael Brown Was Shot from the Front, Had Marijuana in His System." (gasping) Oh, no. No wonder Holder wants to do a third autopsy.
RUSH: That's absolutely great. I'm thrilled for you. That's something. Second time on a golf course, 13th hole ever. Let me tell you something. Just for a beginner, 5-iron, 142 yards? For a beginner (and I could say woman, but that would make me sexist and I don't want to go there because of the Republican War on Women), that's impressive.
RUSH: The Jesse Jacksons and the Al Sharptons, they don't want this solved. The people who live on and profit from the notion that there's racial strife worsening in this country, they're not gonna ever allow any perception that the problem has been solved. Never.
RUSH: I was here at the tail end of show prep. I was near the end of the accumulation phase and just about to begin the organizational phase, which is around 11:15 every morning. Snerdley comes in and says, "Are you sleeping well?"
