RUSH: We’re going to go to Chicago. This is Charles. Charles, thank you for waiting and for calling. It’s great to have you here. Hello.
CALLER: Thanks, Rush. Rush, listen I — I voted the Republican, and, uh, I — I didn’t really want to see Obama get in office, but, you know, Rush, you’re one reason to blame for this election, for the Republicans losing. First of all, you kept harping about voting for Hillary. The second big issue is that — was the torture issue. I’m a veteran. We’re not supposed to be torturing these people. This is not Nazi Germany, Red China, or North Korea. There’s other ways of interrogating people — and you kept harping about it. ‘It’s okay, or it’s not really torture,’ and it was just more the waterboarding. Some of these — some of these prisoners were killed under torture. (sic) And it just — it was crazy for you to keep going on and on like — like Leveen (sic) and Hannity and you. It’s like you’re all brainwashed. And my last comment is no matter what Obama does, you — you will still criticize him because I believe you’re — you’re brainwashed. You’re just, uhhh — and I hate to say it, but I — I think you’re a brainwashed Nazi. Anyone who could believe in torture, uh, just, uh — is — is — has got to be — there’s gotta be something wrong with them.
RUSH: You know…
CALLER: And I know Bush wanted to keep us safe and all of that, but we — we’re not supposed to be torturing these people.
RUSH: Charles, if anybody is admitting that they are brainwashed, it would be you.
CALLER: No, no, no, Rush. I don’t think so.
CALLER: You have and Hannity —
RUSH: Charles? Charles? Charles, you said —
CALLER: — you with and Levin are all brainwashed, and you know it.
RUSH: You said at the beginning of your phone call —
RUSH: — that you didn’t want Obama in there —
CALLER: That’s right.
RUSH: — but you voted for him because of me?
CALLER: I didn’t vote for him. I voted for, uh, McCain. I voted Republican.
CALLER: I voted Republican.
RUSH: So you’re saying I turned people off.
CALLER: You turned people off with all your — all this vote for Hillary and all this BS —
RUSH: That was Operation Chaos!
CALLER: You must think people are really stupid.
RUSH: That was to keep the chaos going.
CALLER: Naaaaaaaaah! It didn’t work!
RUSH: It was in the Democrat primaries.
CALLER: It didn’t work and now we have you, Hannity, Leveen, and you: sour grapes. That’s all we have. And believe me, I’m not — I’m not — I’m more to the right than I am to the left.
RUSH: Oh, of course you are!
CALLER: I am.
RUSH: Of course you are!
CALLER: And that’s the truth.
RUSH: You wouldn’t be calling here with all these sour grapes if you weren’t.
CALLER: Well, I’m so tired of listening to you go on and on with this sour grapes —
RUSH: Oh, of course you are!
CALLER: You’re brainwashed.
RUSH: I don’t know of anybody who died from torture. I do not ever —
CALLER: We are not supposed to torture people. You remember World War II, the Nazis in the Newenberg (sic) Trials?
RUSH: I —
CALLER: You remember the Newenberg Trials?
CALLER: Klaus Barbie? Hah?
RUSH: Barack Obama —
CALLER: What’s the matter with you? You haven’t seen served in the military!
RUSH: Barack Obama is president —
CALLER: I served in the Marine Corps and the Army.
RUSH: Charles, Barack Obama is president of the United States today because of stupid, ignorant people who think like you do. You pose… You and your ignorance are the most expensive commodity this country has. You think you know everything. You don’t know diddly-squat. You call me a Nazi, you call me somebody who supports torture, and you want credibility on this program? You know, you’re just plain embarrassing and ludicrous. But it doesn’t surprise me that you’re the kind of Republican that our last candidate attracted. Because you’re no Republican at all, based on what the hell you’ve said here.
