RUSH: The disciples of the Drive-By Media are panting breathlessly with coughs thrown in awaiting the address, the sermon from the Messiah at the Victory Tower in Berlin, ladies and gentlemen. This, by the way, is a site that was chosen by Adolf Hitler because it had good aesthetic value for him to address (no, it’s true) people. This is the Victory Tower. It’s a phallic symbol out there and it’s constructed there and Hitler did move it, moved it to this location in order to provide a good backdrop. (interruption) No, I’m not making analogies here. I’m just giving you a little history about the place.
Now, the crowd looks pretty big but Obama’s a little concerned here because when he flew into Berlin, he said, ‘I didn’t know the space was that big; we’ve got to get a lot of people in there to fill it.’ And they haven’t filled it, at least from the camera angle that I have. They are admitting it’s a political speech now and as such the U.S. State Department has sent a directive to — oh, by the way, folks, do you know what Obama did before he left Israel? He stopped in Bethlehem. I was told this. He stopped in Bethlehem to visit the site where he was born. He didn’t allow any media in there because he didn’t want to disturb the animals, and it was from there that he flew into Berlin and he saw this big space he’s got to fill with all these people. The U.S. State Department has sent out a directive to all the employees in the embassy that they are not allowed to go to this because it is a political speech. It’s a campaign rally is what it is and that’s why they’re not allowed to go. The Drive-Bys are breathlessly anticipating this. It comes up a little in an hour and, no, we are not going to JIP it. (interruption) What, you want to JIP it? It’s a live translation. You want me to JIP this? We might JIP a little bit of it. I don’t know how long it’s going to be. I don’t want to JIP the whole thing. People don’t tune in to this show to hear Obama, Snerdley. They tune in to hear me and they’re starting to tune in to hear the Official Obama Criticizer more and more, too. But they certainly don’t tune in to hear Obama.
Anyway, we’ll have more comments on this. There’s an NBC poll out that’s not good for Obama. He’s getting no bump out of this trip. It’s an NBC poll. He’s losing in a lot of ways to John McCain in terms of who do you trust more to deal with the problems, who’s closer to your values. McCain wins big in both these, and the surprise is at NBC — they did this on the Nightly News last night with Chuck Todd, Chuck T as he’s known. Everybody’s stunned that NBC put this bit of news out.
RUSH: Here’s Ronaldus Magnus on June 12, 1987 at the Brandenburg Gate in West Berlin.
PRESIDENT REAGAN: General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate (crowd cheering). Mr. Gorbachev, Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.
RUSH: Ronaldus Magnus, June 12th, 1987, West Berlin. The wall shortly thereafter came down. Ronaldus Magnus, of course, an elected President, speaking not as a candidate and not at a campaign rally. Let’s go back now to 1963, June the 26th, President John F. Kennedy.
KENNEDY: There are some who say that communism is the wave of the future. Let them come to Berlin. And there are some who say, in Europe and elsewhere, we can work with the Communists. Let them come to Berlin. And there are even a few who say that it is true that communism is an evil system, but it permits us to make economic progress. Lass’ sie nach Berlin kommen. Let them come to Berlin.
RUSH: Now, there’s President Kennedy. There’s not a Democrat alive who would make that speech today anywhere. Democrats today are appeasers. Did you hear any appeasement here? There are some who say that we should work with the communists, let them come to Berlin. Obama, there are some who say we should work with Iran. There are some who say we should work with Castro. There are some who say we should work with Chavez. Barack Obama, for all the hopes that you disciples have invested in him, the most merciful cannot make a speech like either Ronaldus Magnus or JFK. Here’s another bite from President Kennedy’s speech, June 26, 1963, Brandenburg Gate.
KENNEDY: We can look forward to that day when this city will be joined as one and this country and this great Continent of Europe in a peaceful and hopeful globe. When that day finally comes, as it will, the people of West Berlin can take sober satisfaction in the fact that they were in the front lines for almost two decades. All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Berlin. And, therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words ‘Ich bin ein Berliner.’
RUSH: And the crowd went nuts with that. Now, a couple of things here. Not only could Obama not make this speech, nor could any other Democrat today because they are appeasers, because they don’t see that much wrong with communism, if the truth be told. But he couldn’t make this speech, either, because Obama believes that it was a mistake to free 25 million Iraqis from tyranny because it angered our enemies. We are so afraid of angering our enemies today Obama wouldn’t make a speech like this, not aimed at Iran. George W. Bush will, but there is not a Democrat who will do it. Now, the Germans have a great sense of humor. Now, one of the things that I don’t think too many people know, a Berliner in Berlin is a doughnut and so the Germans, even after Kennedy left, it’s a kind of a doughnut, and they had a lot of fun with Kennedy. They respected what he said, but they’re a bunch of jokesters. Now, I’ve mentioned the fact that the Victory Tower is Hitler’s phallic symbol, or a phallic symbol. They are not there now, but a couple of still shots that I have seen during show prep today of two giant Obama balloons very close to the top of the Victory Tower. Oh, yes. Oh, yes. Proving, ladies and gentlemen, that the Reverend Jackson still has not succeeded in removing the nuts of The Messiah.
RUSH: I’m just thinking about those audio sound bites of Ronaldus Magnus and JFK. At the Brandenburg Gate, 1963, John F. Kennedy tells the communists their days are numbered. In 1987, 1988, 1989 the communist days are over. A Democrat president and a Republican president were on the same path bringing about the same objective. Well, John Kennedy laying it out; Reagan fulfilling it. Within that time there were a number of Republican and Democrat Presidents who didn’t think it would be possible. Kennedy did and Reagan pulled it off. People talk about unity and compromise. There wasn’t any compromise. There was a single-minded purpose and objective that was morally correct, and that was to end the tyranny of communism in Europe. And JFK recognized it. It’s striking to listen to those bites today and realize that there isn’t a Democrat who’d make this speech. Maybe Joe Lieberman.
There isn’t a Democrat around who would make a speech like that, who would dare speak of our current enemy, or enemies, in that regard for fear of making them mad. This is just striking to see how changed the Democrat Party is. Even though we know it, it’s amazing to see in 45 short years just how drastically the Democrat Party has moved left.
