RUSH: Here’s Noah, Shreveport, Louisiana. You’re next on the program, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Major dittos, Rush. It’s a great pleasure to talk to you. I wanted to talk to you a little bit about Rahm Emanuel’s sad excuse of an apology and the people that accepted that. From a father who has a special needs kid, I just can’t imagine that they’re not calling for his resignation. Can you imagine if a Republican made this comment?
RUSH: I’m told that they did ultimately accept the apology. At first they didn’t but there was an update just before the program started that I saw that apparently the apology was accepted.
CALLER: Well, I doubt any people have any skin in the game like I do, and I’m sorry, but the only way that me and anyone else that has a kid like that can accept the apology is if it comes with his resignation. That’s what they’d be calling for if he was a Republican and that’s what I think we should be calling for from him. It’s worse than using the N-word.
RUSH: That’s what Sarah Palin did, she called for his resignation.
CALLER: Yeah, these people have no one to protect them unlike, you know, black people if you call them the N-word and you go making remarks like that about these people. I have an eight-year-old daughter who had a stroke when she was born, she does more by noon to get five A’s and the B that she gets in the second grade than Rahm Emanuel has done in his whole pathetic life. It’s just sorry that he can make, you know, comments about people like that.
CALLER: And I get even madder when the talking heads get it all wrong about you because you’ve been nothing but a complete and total support of special needs people always on your program, and, you know, because of comments you made yesterday, I’d like to extend an invitation to you to talk for CHASA, which is the Children’s Hemiplegia & Stroke Association that we belong to. It’s a support group for parents that have kids like this, because you’ve just been nothing but supportive all the time —
RUSH: Thank you for that.
CALLER: — and I’d like them to spin that.
RUSH: Thank you for that. I appreciate that. I was just highlighting and amplifying what Emanuel said because the mainstream media was trying to bury it and now here they are trying to shove it off on me today which I knew that they would also do.
CALLER: That’s so true.
RUSH: God bless you, Noah, thank you very much for the call. I appreciate it.
