RUSH: Here’s Jody at Lake O’Ryan in Michigan. Thank you for calling, great to have you on the EIB Network.
CALLER: Hey, Rush, it’s great to talk to you. I talked to you once before. I’ve been listening to you for a couple years now and I think I’m getting brighter, but there’s a lot to be learned, I know, and I’m no expert in foreign affairs, but what really confuses me about the liberals is the hypocrisy when they talk about how we have no reason to be in Iraq and helping those people, but yet everybody wants us to go to Darfur. I mean, aren’t we going to end up in a quagmire there? I don’t understand. Can you enlighten me on that?
RUSH: Yeah, you’re not going to believe this, but it’s very simple. And the sooner you believe it, and the sooner you let this truth permeate the boundaries you have that tell you this is certainly not possible, the better you will understand Democrats in everything. You are right. They want to get us out of Iraq, but they can’t wait to get us into Darfur.
RUSH: There are two reasons. What color is the skin of the people in Darfur?
RUSH: It’s black. And who do the Democrats really need to keep voting for them? If they lose a significant percentage of this voting bloc they’re in trouble.
CALLER: Yes, the black population.
RUSH: Right. So you go into Darfur, and you go into South Africa. You get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela, who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia, do the same thing.
CALLER: I can’t believe it’s really that simple.
RUSH: Well, see, I knew you couldn’t believe it. But here’s one that’s even going to be harder to believe, and it is even more truthful. Could you tell me what vital national interest is at stake in Darfur?
CALLER: I don’t know.
RUSH: Nothing. Zilch, zero, nada. Darfur is not attacking us. Darfur has not said they want to attack us. Clinton sent the US military off to Bosnia. No US national interests at stake there. The liberals will use the military as a Meals on Wheels program. They’ll send ’em out to help with tsunami victims, but you put the military in a position of defending US national interests, and that’s when Democrats and liberals oppose it.
CALLER: Right. Terrorists have attacked us, and our oil supply comes from Iraq and Iran and the Middle East, and yet that’s not worth defending.
RUSH: Exactly right. You’ve got it. Now you just have to believe your own instincts from here on out.
