RUSH: Susan in Fort Smith, Arkansas, you’re next on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi. I just wanted to call and tell you I called my senator like a good citizen does to tell how I felt about the immigration bill. The man who answered the phone argued with me. For 30 minutes he argued.
RUSH: Well, that’s okay. You don’t expect them to bend over and grab the ankles just because a constituent calls, do you?
RUSH: You do?
CALLER: Yeah. Yeah. I’m a woman. I expect men to listen. Okay. No, I don’t. But —
RUSH: You mean he wasn’t even listening? Was he just arguing with you not letting you get a word in?
CALLER: He did let me get a word in.
RUSH: All right.
CALLER: You know, and whenever I talked about how the, you know, illegals need to obey our laws, he —
RUSH: That’s not the way to approach this. I should have mentioned this earlier. There are a couple things that are not going to go anywhere at this stage of the argument. If you start talking about they’re breaking our laws, that’s going to be met with indifference. You need to call these people and tell ’em you don’t appreciate what Republicans are doing, if your senator is a Republican, or you don’t appreciate what this legislation is going to do to the Republican Party and you don’t like the way that this legislation, if passed, will tear down institutions that have defined this country’s greatness. The lawbreaking thing, we’ve been there, done that, and that’s not going to persuade anybody. They’ve already admitted that they’re going to make ’em legal, as soon as they can. That’s how they’re going to get rid of that. They’re not going to enforce the law with legislation. That’s abundantly clear. So when you call them, you have to attack the legislation on different levels, as I have offered guidance today on this program. This is about destroying the Republican Party. This is about remaking and destroying institutions in this country, remaking it in the liberal vision. There’s nothing conservative about it. I don’t want to repeat myself in the first hour, but if you’re going to just call and talk to these people, make sure that you get beyond the clichés — and I hate to say it’s become a cliché, but the fact that they’re violating the law is a cliché now.
