RUSH: Here’s Isis in Shreveport, Louisiana, I’m glad you waited. Welcome to the program.
CALLER: Hi, Rush?
CALLER: It is so great to talk to the man who runs America.
RUSH: (Laughing.) Thank you. It’s nice to have you on the show.
CALLER: Thank you so much. This is the first time I’m calling but I’ve been listening for a while. I first would like to say that I’m an American who is from Puerto Rico, and I’m calling in response to Mary’s call yesterday accusing you of being mean to the Mexican people. I would like to say that I do not believe that at all. I think that you are just stating the fact that the majority of illegal Americans coming to the United States come from Mexico.
CALLER: My whole thing with that is — and this is another side that I’ve been seeing as far as a Latino person, I say that with air quotes, is that if Latinos who don’t agree with the Mexicans, with the immigration bill, amnesty bill, if you will, we are being chastised for it.
RUSH: Precisely. Well, that’s the whole point. I think I made this point yesterday — I don’t think; I know. My memory is extraordinary. I remember doing this. Mary was part of an ongoing liberal tactic here to blame the opponents here for angering and being mean-spirited and almost racist and bigoted, and that’s why the Hispanics are mad at us is because of people like me. That’s what you’re heated up about because we weren’t out there with them waving Mexican flags one million strong in Los Angeles demanding to be exempt from the laws of this country. They did that on their own.
