RUSH: I just checked the e-mail while I was on a call, and I got a couple naysayers, ‘Come on, Rush! See, this is what you always do, what you always do. So somebody says, ‘We don’t want to have a ruckus or any trouble in Texas,’ and you say, ‘Of course not! We’re not allowed to protest the Dear Leader in North Korea. We’re not allowed to protest the Dear Leader in Cuba or in Russia.’ There you go, Rush, comparing the Obama people and so forth to communists. Why do you always do this? This is why, Rush, people think that you go too far.’ Oh. Okay. Well, I have a sound bite here from June of this year in Washington at the Washington National Cathedral during the Potomac, Maryland, St. Andrews Episcopal school graduation. White House Communications Director Anita Dunn this past June. Here is a portion of her remarks.

DUNN: The third lesson and tip actually come from two of my favorite political philosophers: Mao Tse-tung and Mother Teresa. Not often coupled with each other. In 1947, when Mao Tse-tung was being challenged within his own party on his plan to basically take China over, the Nationalist Chinese helped the cities, they had the army, they had the Air Force, they had everything on their side. And people said, ‘How can you win? How can you do this? How can you do this? Against all the odds against you?’ And Mao Tse-tung said, ‘You fight your war and I’ll fight mine,’ and think about that for a second.

RUSH: Folks (stammering) Get ready, Mike, because I’m going to play this again. This is the White House communications director, Anita Dunn, speaking to a graduating class at the Washington National Cathedral in June. One of her favorite political philosophers is Mao Tse-tung. ‘When Mao Tse-tung was being challenged within his own party on his plan to take over China,’ all the other people said: Look, your enemies have the cities, they got the jets, they’ve got the military, they got the army, how can you do that? You fight your war… She is saying one of her favorite philosophers is a guy who brought communism to his country and took it over, and she is Obama’s communications director! So don’t tell me that I’m going too far when I say, ‘We can’t protest the Dear Leader in Texas. Why, they don’t do that in North Korea. They don’t do that in Cuba. Don’t do that in Russia.’ Who’s got the Army in the cities today? Obama doesn’t have to take them over. They’re under his control. I know people don’t want to face this. ‘I can’t believe this, Rush. This is just too much.’ Here, listen again and believe it.

DUNN: The third lesson and tip actually come from two of my favorite political philosophers: Mao Tse-tung and Mother Teresa. Not often coupled with each other. In 1947, when Mao Tse-tung was being challenged within his own party on his plan to basically take China over, the Nationalist Chinese helped the cities, they had the army, they had the Air Force, they had everything on their side. And people said, ‘How can you win? How can you do this? How can you do this? Against all the odds against you?’ And Mao Tse-tung said, ‘You fight your war and I’ll fight mine,’ and think about that for a second.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: A question I have for Anita Dunn who admires Mao Tse-tung. Anita, is Mao Tse-tung your favorite murderer, too? How many did he kill, 30 million, 70 million? The numbers vary here. It’s politically incorrect to call Mao a murderer. How many did he kill, 30 million people or 70? I think 70 million might be the Soviets. Still, we admire him, don’t we?
