RUSH: This is Tammy in Vestal, New York. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. How are you?
RUSH: Great. Thank you.
CALLER: Listen, I just wanted to totally thank you for letting Susan from California have her little say yesterday. I was listening to your program, cleaning my house, and I was in absolute tears listening to this woman. And I want to thank you for letting her do that because, number one, she needed to vent and you gave her a forum to do that, and that was your good deed for the day, number one. And number two, my husband and I are raising a nine-year-old little girl, and we try very hard every day to teach her to be a good person and to behave properly and to act like a young lady in this world. And everybody’s going crazy, with the government, everyone is losing their collective minds, and it is so nice to hear someone out there who’s normal. And that little piece of information gave me more hope than Obama could ever give me. And I just want to thank you for that.
RUSH: Well, that’s very kind of you. I really appreciate that. That’s a kind assessment. You got a nine-year-old little girl, you said?
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: Okay, Roman Polanski drugs, rapes a 13-year-old, Whoopi Goldberg said, ‘That’s not rape-rape,’ and all of Hollywood is coming out to defend him, Roman Polanski, for what happened in 1977. You’ve got a little nine-year-old girl. What do you think of that when Hollywood, the Hollywood culture, all these left-wingers for some reason, their guard posts are down, and they’re vomiting exactly who they are. Date rape, 13-year-old rape, rape-rape, whatever you call it, drugging a 13-year-old girl for sex, fine and dandy, don’t you dare put him in jail for that!
CALLER: It’s crazy. And to be perfectly honest with you, Hollywood disgusts me. I can’t even hardly bring myself to go to a movie, and even a movie that I’m interested in, because the first thing I think of is, who is in this movie, have they irritated me recently, and if so, game over, I want no part of it.
RUSH: Well, it’s interesting times. I never thought that I would see the left be this open about who they are and what they believe and what they want. So I hope they keep talking. Thanks, Tammy.
This is David, Jupiter, Florida, right up the road. David, welcome to the program. Great to have you here.
CALLER: It’s a pleasure to speak with you.
RUSH: You live anywhere near the Bears Club by any chance?
CALLER: I know the Bears Club. I think you’re thinking of the Waxahachie Club, though, possibly.
RUSH: No, no, no, I’m thinking of the Bears Club because Michael Jordan is building a huge house, he’s bought two lots there at the Bears Club. The local media is aghast over this. Jordan’s building some 30,000-square-foot house with a cottage and a guard gate. You could put Barkley in there as the guard, Milk Dud head. But the average house size out there is 10,000 square feet and the environmentalist wackos have gone nuts, ‘Nobody needs that much, nobody needs that much space,’ and it’s two lots there, the Bears Club. Everybody is just going nuts about it. I’ve got the story here in the Stack of Stuff. A couple of more things to say about it, but I know that’s not why you called, what’s up?
CALLER: We’ll be glad to have Michael in the neighborhood. He’s a great guy, and my call is regarding the Polanski case and hearing the reference yesterday, it’s not really a rape-rape. At 53 I don’t get outraged or surprised too much anymore, but I’m a parent with teenaged daughter, and a family member of a violent crimes victim so I would suggest that Whoopi maybe needs to take a reality check. If she had children, I don’t know what her marital status is or et cetera, but if she had a 13-year-old she wouldn’t send her to a champagne Quaalude party at Jack Nicholson’s home with some over 40-year-old men.
RUSH: But Jack Nicholson wasn’t there. The Hollywood community goes out of their way to point out that Jack wasn’t there when Roman Polanski did what he did. Jack wasn’t there. Don’t include Jack in there. It’s just his house. Jack wasn’t there, Polanski did what he did. Now, here’s Whoopi Goldberg who routinely gets on this case about women’s rights and how unfair women are treated in this country — I mean, these people, if you don’t study them like I do, you scratch your head and say, who are these people? It’s not really rape-rape? Thirteen-year-old girl drugged, not really rape-rape, Whoopi Goldberg said? You got Scorsese, Woody Allen, Pedro Almodovar all saying this is senseless, senseless, why would you bring Polanski — they’re telling us all who they are. Now, I study these people and I know them, and none of this surprises me about them. This is who they are. It has been 21 years trying to convince people of this that’s been the challenge. But now I’ve got the best assistance I could ever have, and that’s them and their own mouths, from this doofus Alan Grayson on the floor of the House, to Pelosi, to Harry Reid. I mean to Michelle Obama with this sacrifice that she and Barack are making to go to Copenhagen to pitch the Olympics for Chicago.
RUSH: Bremerton, Washington. Laura, you’re next. It’s great to have you with us today.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. It’s an honor to speak with you.
RUSH: Thank you very much, yeah.
CALLER: I’ve been trying to get through for months and months.
RUSH: Well, you made it. Thank you very much.
CALLER: Ha! Thank you.
CALLER: I want to compliment you on what you do for us. You tell it like it is. You’re not afraid to let people know exactly what’s going on. You’re not afraid to call a liar a liar, a cheat a cheat, or a traitor a traitor. And there are so many of us out here that do agree with you, so, please, just keep up the good work. Please keep doing what you’re doing, and I wish your Limbaugh Letter came out more than once a month. (chuckles) I read it so fast, I enjoy it so much. I agree with you on the Obamas. They are two of the most angry, pathetic people that it has ever been my sorry misfortune to see. And a quick word about Whoopi Goldberg. She sees absolutely nothing wrong with the rape of a 13-year-old child —
RUSH: Well, now, what —
CALLER: — but she thinks it’s terrible for people to pick their nose? Have you ever read her book?
RUSH: No-o-o. (laughs)
CALLER: My gosh, she is offended that people pick their noses!
RUSH: You mean in public?
RUSH: Well, now, now, wait now, see, for Whoopi to be offended at that she would have to have seen people pick their nose —
RUSH: Which would mean they were doing it in her presence, which might send her a message.
CALLER: It just might. You know, but that’s what she says in that book, you know.
RUSH: As to the… Whoopi is trying to split hairs on this. She says in her defense — because people say, ‘What do you mean ‘it wasn’t rape-rape’?’ Whoopi is saying that she was speaking legalistically about the difference between rape and the specific charge of ‘unlawful sex with a minor.’
RUSH: And she’s saying she was misunderstood. When she said, ‘It wasn’t ‘rape-rape,” what she meant was unlawful sex with a minor. Now, to me it’s a difference without a distinction.
CALLER: What is the meaning of ‘is’?
RUSH: The initial charge included sodomy. And I’m sure Whoopi is a feminist. And we all know that the feminists have… Well, what was it? Catharine MacKinnon, who taught law at the University of Michigan, actually was teaching female students in the class — this is back in the early nineties — that all sex is rape, even the sex in marriage, because it all involves domination. So the feminists, I mean, I don’t think the feminists are going to draw the fine line distinction that Whoopi is drawing here. All these leftists, I don’t care whether we’re in employment or whether they’re in politics they circle the wagons. Even if they’re news. You know, Dan Rather makes up a whole story about Bush and the National Guard, and they gave him an award! Peter Jennings and Tom Brokaw chaired a big awards ceremony to circle the wagons around Dan Rather on that because what these people are doing is protecting their industry, in their own minds.
RUSH: Do you remember Blazing Saddles? Do you remember that movie? Blazing Saddles is one of my all-time favorite movies. Do you know why? Not just ’cause it was funny. Blazing Saddles literally just stood political correctness on its head. It made fun of everything. And one of my favorite scenes — and this is apropos of the Roman Polanski situation. One of my favorite scenes is when Hedley Lamarr (played by Harvey Korman) is signing up crooks and thugs to hunt down Sheriff Bart, who had escaped Rock Ridge. They hired the first black sheriff in Rock Ridge.
And of course the town folk were just all upset about this, and they eventually drove the sheriff outta town, Sheriff Bart. And this lineup of crooks and thugs is being interviewed by Hedley Lamarr, who was the assistant to Governor Le Petomane (played by Mel Brooks) and they’re all in line to be interviewed to be part of a gang. Hedley Lamarr said to one of the guys, ‘Okay, qualifications?’ And the applicant says, Rape, murder, arson, and rape,’ and Hedley Lamarr says, ‘Wait a minute, you said rape twice,’ and the applicant says, ‘I like rape.’ And when I watched this in the theaters back in the days when I went to the theater, the audience just laughed crazy. It was funny. Why? Because a rapist was one of the boys.
Hedley Lamarr had found just the kind of guy he was looking for for his gang to go track down Sheriff Bart. A rapist was one of the boys, is being recruited for a job after admitting he liked to rape women and everybody around approved. Now, Roman Polanski could play that applicant and Whoopi Goldberg could play one of the thugs in line laughing her butt off. Although if Polanski was in the movie… Here’s the line. If Polanski were in the movie, this is what it would be like.
Hedley Lamarr would say, ‘Qualifications?’
Applicant: ‘Rape, murder, arson, rape.’
Hedley Lamarr: ‘You said rape twice.’
Applicant: ‘I like rape, but not rape-rape.’
Now, Blazing Saddles was the epitome of political incorrectness. It was inconceivable that a rapist was just one of the boys. That’s what made it funny. It was inconceivable that a rapist would be one of the boys chosen by an assistant to the governor of some western town or state to go after the black sheriff. Well, Whoopi Goldberg — who, according to the birth records is a woman — wants to make sure that the country isn’t unfair when judging Roman Polanski. He didn’t commit ‘rape-rape.’ He’s just one of the boys. (sigh) I wasn’t going to talk about this. I’m just reminded of this because all this stuff has come up with Whoopi now saying: Ah, I was just speaking legalese here. Sex with a minor is not same thing as rape and so forth. By the way, speaking more on this Peg Yorkin, founder of the Feminist Majority Foundation — and you know who also one of the prominent members of the Feminist Majority Foundation was Eleanor ‘Squeal,’ who was a former member of the feminazis.
She was a former president of the NOW gang, the NAGs, National Association of Gals. And she was asked about this Roman Polanski thing. She’s now founder of the Feminist Majority Foundation. She said: ‘My personal thoughts are let the guy go. It’s bad a person was raped.’ It’s bad a person was raped. ‘But that was so many years ago. The guy has been through so much in his life. It’s crazy to arrest him now. Let it go. The government could spend its money on other things.’ That’s where the feminazis are today. ‘It’s bad a person was raped, but that was so many years ago. The guy has been through so much in his life.’ Just like there was no compassion for Paula Jones, where’s the compassion for that 13-year-old girl? Juanita Broaddrick, alleged rape by Bill Clinton, who said he said, ‘Put some ice on your lip.’ They went after Juanita Broaddrick, not Bill Clinton.
