RUSH: I want to go back. We really can’t play Reverend Wright enough, can we?
WRIGHT (screaming): Barack knows what it means to be a black man living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people! [snip] Hillary ain’t never been called a nigger! [snip] Bill did us just like he did Monica Lewinsky!
WRIGHT: He was riding dirty. [snip] In white America, US of KKKA: black men turning on black men. [snip] I am sick of Negroes who just do not get it. [snip] Not God bless America, God (bleep) America! It’s in the Bible. For killing innocent people, God (bleep) America! [snip] (screaming) And now we are indignant because of stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards!
WRIGHT: America’s chickensssss are coming home to roost.
RUSH: That is the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Obama’s pastor, the pastor Obama chose. Now, Jeremiah Wright has been Obama’s pastor for 20 years. Why is 20 years in Wright’s church important? Well, let’s look at me and you. I have been syndicated for 20 years, nationally syndicated, available to every home in America for 20 years. Think about that. Every one of you in this audience who have been loyal, devoted listeners for 20 years, you’ve done so for a reason: You liked what you heard. You liked what I said. You liked the way I said it. You liked it so much you kept coming back for more. All you had to do was turn on the radio. Okay, Barack Obama and his family attended Jeremiah Wright’s church of black liberation theology, which is Afrocentric Marxism, for 20 years.
Now, think back 20 years. All you had to do was turn on a radio. Obama had a little bit more effort than that. He had to get out of bed, do the hygiene thing, get the kids ready when they came along, and head off down the street to the church. They had to get up, get dressed, they had to drive to church, pick up the church newsletter to read later. Twenty years. Much like some of you have behaved over the years. I’ve had the Rush to Excellence Tours out there where you had to do more than turn on the radio. You had to get in your car, get dressed, pay a smidgen for a ticket — the profits go to charity — you go out there and you listen to the Rush to Excellence Tour, or public golf tournaments or whatever, Dan’s Bake Sale, you made an effort to see, you made an effort to hear, and you made an effort, at least places where I was, to meet me. And some of you even ordered my newsletter, the Limbaugh letter, the most widely read political newspaper in America, 800-457-4141 to order. Ahem! Twenty years is my point here, 20 years is a long time. 800-457-4141. Dawn said I went through the number too quickly.
Twenty years is a long time. Twenty years is a commitment. It says a lot about the person whom you made an effort to see and hear. A lot is learned in 20 years. Much is said. You who listen to me — the all-knowing, all-caring, all-sensing, all-feeling, all-concerned El Rushbo Maha Rushie — you understand this; you can relate. But Barack Obama, who made an effort, who chose Reverend Wright, who made an effort to go to his church every Sunday for 20 years, ‘I never heard him say all that stuff.’ Once again, folks, common sense and reality somehow escape Obama, and he gets away with creating an illusion that people somehow swallow.
