RUSH: The first caller of the day, and we got somebody wants to talk about O.J. Simpson. I want to take it now and move it along. This is A.J. in Houston. Hello, A.J. It’s nice to have you with us.
CALLER: How you doing? Mega, mega, mega dittos to you, sir.
RUSH: Thank you very much. It’s great to have you on the program.
CALLER: Sir, I appreciate you out there fighting for us because ain’t nobody else doing it. But, Rush, I want to understand one thing. How is it that our government and our city officials can sit there and just tarnish this man, and they got terrorists running around our cities, and they ain’t even thinking about taking their passports? Illegal immigrants? They ain’t thinking about taking their passports. How can you do this, man, like this? How can the American people put up with this, Rush? This is not right, man. The American people gotta wake up and cut all this bull crap out and take our country back and get these illegals outta here, man, and they’re doing O.J. They’re stomping him in the ground. O.J., he’s crazy enough to get his butt back into this crazy stuff, but it still don’t make sense. You gonna take his passport and you ain’t going to take these other people’s passports? Is something wrong with this picture, Rush, or am I crazy?
CALLER: Which one is it, Rush?
RUSH: No, I don’t think you’re crazy. I think you’re perhaps one of the most brilliant people that we’ve had on the program. I would never have thought, without your call, to link O.J. Simpson to illegal immigration via his passport being taken from him. That’s an interesting route that you’ve taken there to illustrate the illegal immigration problem. Plus with all those terrorists running around the country, as you say, and they’re treating O.J. like he’s more dangerous than those guys when he was acquitted in that trial. Whatever you think, he was acquitted.
CALLER: But, Rush, I’m sick and tired of these people in America. We sent back… Black folk, I’m tired of them, too, because we jumping on bandwagons that don’t even matter. If you talk to the average black man, he don’t want to talk about politics. It don’t matter. If you ask them what’s going on, they can’t tell you, but they want stuff to happen. The Mexicans are coming together and they are getting stuff done. The black man is left on the totem pole. I don’t know where he’s at no more. I can’t even say where we’re gonna go, Rush. We don’t get the pants off our kids’ butts, we walk around looking stupid, but we want somebody to hire us? Rush, come on, man! Jesse, all them, they keep the black folk down. I don’t know why black men keep thinking Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are the best thing since glue!
CALLER: Man! If these black folks don’t wake up they’re going to be lost in the shuffle, baby, and I’m tired of it, baby. I got a son coming up and I’m schooling him every moment I’m awake because, I’m telling you, if we don’t take America back, they’re gonna kill us, man! They got our prayers out of the schools: ‘God’ and ‘trust’ off the money. How are these politicians letting this happen? American people, you better wake up, get these suckers outta office and we gotta get somebody into this that’ll quit lying to us. Black folk let them come in their churches and lie to them. Then in the churches, they sell ’em. They ain’t giving the black folks… Man, these people gotta wake up. I’m sorry, sir. I’m sorry, but it’s time for America to get mad! I’m tired of all this crazy crap, Rush. You’re doing your best, but I’m going to tell you, Rush, it’s only three of you: you, Hannity, and Savage. You’re the only ones saving the world, man, and you all need to come together and get these people together, and let’s overcome this government and get this stuff on the road, man. That’s the only way it’s going to happen, Rush — and I’m sorry, sir. I just had to get it out.
RUSH: I appreciate the value to all of us in venting. Do you feel better?
RUSH: Do you feel better having vented? A lot of people out there, I’m sure, agree with what you’ve just had to say.
CALLER: Sir, I feel better, but, Rush, I’ll be better when action is proposed. I’m more of an action man. I was in Detroit for years. Detroit is a piece of crap. The mayor let Detroit go down like it’s nothing. People living in there were like, ‘Oh, everything’s just hunky-dory.’
CALLER: People, look around your city! The dot-com losers are taking over. You’re letting them do it, and your city looks like trash. Your mayor has taken money from your job. Y’all don’t have jobs, you all ain’t got nothing going for your kids, it’s a mess in Detroit and then you got Senator Levin coming on to talk about the war. You fools, you need to get your state together! That’s what you need to do! I mean, Rush, I can go on, baby, but I know other people gotta get on, sir. I appreciate it, sir, and you keep the good work up. You, Hannity and Savage get yourself together, and I believe you all can overcome this government.
RUSH: A.J., what do you do for a living?
CALLER: I’m in air-conditioning, sir, the air-conditioning business.
RUSH: You’re in the air-conditioning business. Cool. All right. Very good.
CALLER: Yeah. In Houston, you know, we got to have it. (Laughing.)
RUSH: No kidding! You need it almost year ’round. All right, A.J., thanks much for the phone call. I really appreciate it. I love your passion, man. I love your passion.
CALLER: Rush, keep it up, baby. Try y’all three get together and let’s overcome this government —
CALLER: — because they look like they ain’t doing nothing for us, baby, and y’ll are the only ones keeping us enlightened.
RUSH: If that happened they’d start talking about a conspiracy out there.
CALLER: Well, there’s already a conspiracy!
RUSH: We can handle it here, A.J. We got it under control.
CALLER: Well, let’s do it, baby! Let’s do it.
RUSH: All right, pal.
CALLER: All right. Thanks, Rush.
RUSH: Thanks, A.J. Keep it cool out there in Houston. That’s A. J. in Houston who originally called about O.J. Simpson, upset about O.J. having his passport taken away while terrorists and illegal immigrants are running around the country not being pursued and not having their passports taken away.
