RUSH: There was a poll, I saw this over the weekend, and I will admit to being surprised at this. I shouldn’t have been. It’s a Rasmussen poll. Democrats in America — this is not voters. Likely voters, registered voters, this is a survey that represents all of America. ‘Democrats in America are evenly divided on the question of whether George W. Bush knew about the 9/11 terrorist attacks in advance: 35% of Democrats believe he did know, 39% say he didn’t, and 26% aren’t sure.’ Thirty-five percent of Democrats think that Bush new.
Well, who in the world has been saying this? Hello Bill Maher, perhaps, hello Rosie O’Donnell, hello any number of these kook blog websites. But this can only happen if there’s a sufficient foundation, an effervescent, boiling rage among these people in the first place. I don’t care about the ‘why.’ I really don’t care. The fact that 35% of this country’s Democrats think that there was a government conspiracy about this and allowed these attacks to happen, does that not give you an indication? It’s no longer funny to call them kooks and freaks and so forth, they are deranged, dangerously uninformed, misinformed, or what have you. I don’t know. This is a shocking, shocking thing. There have been conspiracy theories ever since there have been humanity, but no conspiracy theories ever had this kind of belief among so-called mainstream people, which I guess that’s it, they’re not mainstream. The Democrat Party is not mainstream. It is literally a bunch of deranged, delusional radicals, and we’ll be back.
RUSH: Now, about this Rasmussen poll, 35% of Democrats think that Bush knew about 9/11 before it happened, which has to mean that Bush let it happen, which has to mean Bush wanted it to happen, which could mean that Bush was behind it happening. Thirty-five percent of Democrats, radicals and deranged, 35% of Democrats translates to 17% of Americans, if you do the math, assuming that 80% of the country is Republican or Democrat, evenly split, 20 percent the great, great moderate, independent line, it roughly comes out to 17% of Americans or almost one in five think that.
I’ll tell you, if I’ve run the numbers right on this, instead of focusing on President Bush, do you think it might be better to focus on our schools and on our media? Do you think these people just woke up being this radical? Do you think that a week after 9/11 you would have gotten 35% of Democrats who thought that Bush knew about 9/11 before it happened and obviously let it happen? Do you think 35% of any group would have said that, 10%? Clearly this is a mind-set that had a foundation, as I say, these people already had their rage, and why did they have the rage and hatred? Florida 2000, and then it get stoked and fueled by never-ending Drive-By Media reports about Bush. That’s where we need to start examining. Not the president, we need to start examining the media, the schools, institutions of higher learning, because that’s whose poisoning these people’s minds. They might have had a little poison to start with, but it’s certainly grown.
