RUSH: By the way, this incident on the health care Sunday, the faked incident where nobody shouted the N-word at anybody, where nobody spit on anybody, at Searchlight, Nevada, during the Harry Reid campaign event out there, of course a bus of tea party people showed up, and the tea party bus was peppered with eggs, and the egg throwing was blamed on Andrew Breitbart of BigGovernment.com. Well, Andrew Breitbart has cameras everywhere he goes. It turns out that the guy who accused Breitbart lied to investigative officers. The man is the director of the Democrat Party statewide in Nevada. He threw the eggs and then blamed Breitbart for it, tried to blame the tea party people for causing problems and trouble and unrest. And of course the media ran with that, ‘Tea party people, Breitbart threw eggs at innocent people, trying to target Harry Reid supporters,’ when in fact it was a Harry Reid supporter and a union member who threw the eggs and then told cops that somebody else did.

So you tea party people, I’m sure you know this, but they are trying to get you provoked so that you act in ways similar to the way they’re accusing you. If you don’t do it, they are faking the incidents and reporting to the media that you are acting as accused when you’re not. Therefore do not give them any evidence whatsoever, just keep doing what you’re doing when you’re out there, be polite, be respectful, clean up the mess as you always do and be aware, videotape everything with whatever equipment you have, because they are trying to set up incidents here. If you aren’t provoked the way they want you provoked and if you don’t act like they’re trying to get you to act, then they will fake an incident and say that it was you. They have a willing accomplice, compliant media. There still has been no retraction, after how many days since health care Sunday, and still no evidence at the same time.


RUSH: By the way, Andrew Breitbart sent me a note here. He’s not sure that it was actually the field director for the Nevada Democrat Party. His name is — what is his name? Doesn’t matter. Can’t find his name here. Dimarzio. Field director of the Nevada Democrat Party. Font is very small on the print. Breitbart says, ‘Look it, we’re not sure he threw the eggs,’ but this guy, the field director, was in the middle of it, and he called the cops, he was talking to cops on camera, blaming Breitbart for it, when Breitbart was actually the target of the eggs, and the Tea Party Express was the target of the eggs. So this guy lied to investigators, lied to law enforcement.


RUSH: Here’s Eva in Renick, Missouri. Great to have you on the program. Hi.

CALLER: Hi, Mr. Limbaugh. It’s an honor to speak to you.

RUSH: Thank you.

CALLER: I have a question that I cannot seem to find the answer to anywhere on the political pundit circuit. Why are the Democrats not afraid of us? You know, they see these tea parties, they know that we’re all roused up. They don’t have a care in the world about us. Why are they not afraid of us?

RUSH: Oh, I think they are afraid of us.

CALLER: Do you?

RUSH: Yeah. I think they are afraid. That’s why they’re doing what they’re doing. They know that they cannot govern with the will of the people because the will of the people isn’t with them. They’re deathly afraid of us. But they’re using their power — I mean they’re a regime.


RUSH: We no longer have an administration. This is a regime. And it’s been perfectly illustrated here by what happened with the CEOs that say they’re going to take a first quarter hit, like AT&T, billion dollars, Verizon’s out today, they’re going to take a hit of $750 million, so Henry Waxman, who is the head honcho of the regime sends ’em a letter. It’s equivalent of a subpoena. You get yourselves up here and you explain yourselves and you bring your books. Now, they’re damned if they do and damned if they don’t, because if they don’t take the charge, then the SEC comes after ’em and fines them and sues them. If they do obey the law and do what they did then they hear from Waxman. So the regime is gonna get you one way or the other. They are afraid of us. This is why they’re acting in a totalitarian way. They know that they do not have any cooperation or agreement from us. Why do you think they’re spending so much time trying to create incidents?

CALLER: Exactly.

RUSH: Why are they trying to demonize everybody who opposes them? Because they are afraid. They’re afraid of Sarah Palin. They always tell us who they fear. It’s that they just react to their fear differently than you would expect normal people to react to. Their movement has no conscience.

CALLER: I know that.

RUSH: The ends justify the means. They have a morally superior view of their agenda and of themselves. They look at anything that opposes them as evil, and with evil you must do whatever it takes, ends justify the means to wipe it out.

CALLER: I thank you, Rush.

RUSH: Does that help?

CALLER: Yes, sir.

RUSH: All right.

CALLER: God bless you.

RUSH: Do you want them to be afraid of us?

CALLER: Yes, I do. I’m mad as hell. I’m almost 70 years old, and my country doesn’t look like what I grew up in. And I feel like I have been stolen from, stolen. My grandchildren, great-grandchildren will never know the America that I knew growing up. And that angers me immensely, Mr. Limbaugh.

RUSH: Join the club.

CALLER: Thank you, sir.

RUSH: You are exactly right. You are seeing your country stolen from you right before your eyes from your grandchildren, from your children. This is why there are so many millions of Americans like you, exactly like you. They have the same anger and vitriol that the leader of the regime finds troublesome. Something else about the Democrats, deep in their hearts they know that we are law-abiding people. They know that we don’t make messes. That’s why they’re trying to stoke lawbreaking behavior from the tea party people because they know that we obey the law. They don’t. They have just trashed the US Constitution to govern against the will of the people.


RUSH: To the phones we go, Nikki, Davenport, Iowa, great to have you on the program.

CALLER: Hi, Rush. It’s great to talk to you.

RUSH: Thank you.

CALLER: My name is Mickey with an M.

RUSH: Sorry. I could only read what’s written for me up there. The teleprompter —


RUSH: — got it wrong.

CALLER: You were talking about vitriol. Well, I have a good example. There was a cartoon in one of the local papers, and the first column showed a very angry little man holding a sign that said ‘kill the bill.’ And a second panel, he was even angrier. He kinda looked like the Tasmanian devil, and the sign said ‘just kill the.’ And then in the third panel he looked totally berserk and the sign just said ‘kill.’ Now, if some loony out there goes and hurts somebody, who are they sending out to take the blame?

RUSH: The cartoonist. I mean to follow their logic the cartoonist will have blood on his hands. I know what you’re getting at.


RUSH: They’re trying to incite incidents with tea party people to get them to behave in ways, like shouting the N-word or throwing eggs at people and so forth, and when that doesn’t happen they have to make up and lie about the incidents. So this editorial cartoonist is doing much the same thing.

CALLER: Right. It made me very angry and I called the editor, and he just kind of laughed it off.

RUSH: Well, of course. The news business is the only business where the customer is always wrong. The news business is the only business where you have no clue how hard their job is, you don’t understand in any way, shape, manner, or form how they do what they do. Your criticism is irrelevant.

CALLER: Yeah. All right, thank you, Rush. Thank you for all that you do.

RUSH: Thank you, Mickey. It is a lot, I understand, thank you so much.


RUSH: Kathleen in Ellicott City, Maryland. I’m glad you called. Welcome to the program.

CALLER: Thank you so much, Rush, for taking my call. I’m a first-time caller. I’m very nervous here.

RUSH: You don’t sound it.

CALLER: Well, I’m one of those tea partiers that since last April, I’ve been to our state capital and to DC several times, and there is verbal attack during the tea partiers. I can tell you because it happened to my friend and myself. I was at 9/12, I was at various different ones, but the tea partiers, those of us who are law-abiding citizens and pay our taxes and work two jobs and are totally screwed by our government, our current government, not one piece of trash was left on the ground, not one name was called, everybody was very patriotic and therefore, you know, against high government, this and that. Anyway, the day that the bill was pushed through by Pelosi and her gang, my girlfriend and I were leaving the rally heading towards the metro and out of nowhere this guy, I’m 5’2′, he was about six and a half feet tall, starts saying, ‘Where the hell were you eight years ago?’ And I go, ‘What?’ He said, ‘Where were you eight years ago? You weren’t here, this is war, this is war.’ I said, ‘No, it’s not, it’s about government-run health care, it’s about socialism.’ He said, ‘This is not about socialism. I’m from a socialist country.’ And just about then some lady came with an Obama hat and started walking with him and started cussing me out and saying all kinds of things that I won’t repeat, against me. So there is attacking, but it’s from the other side.

RUSH: Oh, it’s even worse than that, and it’s going to get worse than that. What’s going to happen here is that Obamaites and SEIU people are going to be fake members of the tea party. They’re going to dress up, they’re going to be clean, they’re going to look just like all the other tea partiers do, and they’re going to start throwing eggs, and they’re going to start beating people up or what have you, or they’re going to start shouting the N-word whenever they have the chance. They will do anything they can to discredit the tea party. Those of you in the tea party who go to these rallies, I’m sure you’re aware of the effort to besmirch you by accusing you of shouting the N-word at John Lewis.

CALLER: That did not happen.

RUSH: I know it didn’t happen, there’s no evidence it happened. if they had videotape evidence that it happened they would have shown it, they don’t have it. They were trying to create it. They were being provocative, they were being contentious. There’s no reason that that group of people from Congress had to walk through the crowd. They never go to the Capitol that way. They get there in the underground tunnels. And Pelosi carrying that big gavel with that excrement-eating grin on her face, they were trying to provoke everybody into an incident and when it didn’t happen they said it did anyway. But I tell you, out in Searchlight, Nevada, at the Harry Reid thing, they started throwing eggs at the tea party people and tried to blame it on the tea party people. It’s gonna get even worse. I mean this is in the handbook. Remember, they have to discredit their enemies. They cannot win a debate on ideas in the arena of ideas. They have to discredit and destroy the people that disagree with them. Anyway, I’m glad you called.
