RUSH: John Doe in Phoenix, Arizona. Welcome, sir, to the EIB Network. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Wild West dittos, Rush. One of the reasons why I wanted to remain anomynus — anonymous is because I wanted to stay off the regime’s radar. But with regards to the immigration issue and the recent law passed here in Arizona, I have many ideas that I could go on and on and on for but one of them I wanted to tackle with you is my bone with the media to pick. The mainstream media has been covering the anti-[illegal] immigration protest rallies and only mention being the fact that 60 or 70% of Americans support it. While we have to sit here in our homes quietly watching the media cover all this garbage, I would like to ask, ‘Why can’t we just for a day, a week take the lead from the New York Times, buried in the tenth page, perhaps not even cover it?: You know, just to aggravating the liberals for a couple days. I mean, would that be so much to ask for Fox to maybe suspend coverage of this for a couple days?
RUSH: Well, I’m not sure I understand. You want Fox to stop covering the rallies? Who are you talking about?
CALLER: I’m sorry, I misspoke. Not the anti-immigration, but the immigration rallies, the people rallying and protesting the law.
RUSH: For the illegals? You want coverage of people who are for the violation of the Arizona law to not be covered?
RUSH: You want their rallies not to be covered?
CALLER: Yeah, exactly. You know, even this but for a day or a week. Why is it that people who support the law have to sit in their homes and watch this crap? You know, we have to sit through Chris Matthews and all these other anchors, you know —
RUSH: John? John, John, John?
CALLER: — (garbled) about socialism and capitalism and pushing agenda.
RUSH: John Doe, how old are you?
CALLER: I am 31 years old.
RUSH: Well, you should have learned by now —
RUSH: (laughs) — that you are fantasizing. I’m worried to hear about your grasp on reality.
CALLER: Well —
RUSH: ‘Cause you know full well why they’re doing this. You know full well why they’re covering it. They are gleeful, they are joyous when they see these anti-American, anti-Arizona law protesters. They want them to win! They want you to feel like crud, they want you to feel like you’re the minority, they want you to feel like you’re human debris. Don’t let ’em get away with it.
RUSH: The Arizona immigration law since we’re discussing it, let’s go to the audio sound bites yesterday on Capitol Hill. At a Homeland Security governmental affairs committee hearing, Senator McCain had a chance to question Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, ‘Big Sis,’ and McCain said (impression), ‘Tell me, have you got a chance, have you the law? Tell me?’
NAPOLITANO: I have not, uh, reviewed it in detail. I certainly know of it, senator.
MCCAIN: So you’re not prepared to make a judgment on it?
NAPOLITANO: Senator, ummm, uhh, that is, uhh, not a law, uhhh… Let me just say this. As you know and are well a-aware, that’s not the kind of law I would have signed.
MCCAIN: And for what reason?
NAPOLITANO: Well, because I believe that, uh, it — it — it’s a bad law enforcement law. Uh, I believe it mandates, uh, and requires local law enforcement or puts them in a position many do not want to be placed in.
RUSH: They’re not complaining, and she hasn’t read it! It is stunning. So who else hasn’t read it? Eric Holder hasn’t read it, and now Janet Napolitano says she hasn’t read it. It is being distorted and taken out of context. (interruption) Well, he’s next. P.J. Crowley. It seems like this guy’s been around ever since Clinton was around. He’s been speaking for some agency since ’92. P.J. Crowley this morning on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom, Gregg Jarrett interviewed the State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley, and Jarrett said, ‘Have you read the law?’
CROWLEY: Have I read the law? No.
JARRETT: It’s short, ten pages. I got it right here in front of me. You’re talking about the context of this law, and you haven’t read it?
CROWLEY: I’m simply responding to a challenge that says that we at the Department of State were apologizing for America. We are standing up to America by saying, ‘This is how we function in a civil society. This is how we function under the rule of law.’
RUSH: And it continued with this.
JARRETT: Janet Napolitano and Eric Holder both have sheepishly admitted they haven’t read it, and apparently you haven’t, either. Well, what’s going on here?
CROWLEY: Again, all — (stammering) — all I’m trying to do this morning is say that we had a vigorous debate and discussion with our Chinese delegation last week —
JARRETT: You know what?
CROWLEY: — promoting human rights here in this country and promoting human rights around the world.
RUSH: Now, the reason why Jarrett was pressing this is because, remember, now, this Michael Posner guy — who’s a big open borders guy of ‘Human Rights First’ is big, big on open borders group on immigration; they’re a worldwide radical leftist group — was leading our delegation to human rights talks with the ChiComs, and the ChiComs started berating us about our high degree of poverty, our rising crime rate, our homelessness and racism and our guy agreed with them! It’s not unusual for the ChiComs or any communist to rip us because we’re out there ripping them ’cause they are indeed huge violators of human rights. We always rip ’em. But they said, ‘Who are you? I mean, look at your Arizona law! Look at your racism. Who are you?’ and our guy agreed with them!
So P.J. Crowley was invited to come on Fox this morning to kind of defend what this Michael Posner guy did and when they got around to saying, ‘You’re agreeing with the ChiComs. You’re blaming your own country for this Arizona law. Have you read it?’ He says, ‘No, I haven’t read it. I’m just here talking about the human rights.’ The question is, who in this administration has read it? You see, folks, it doesn’t matter. In fact, it’s easier for them to say they haven’t read it because then they can say about it whatever they wish. If they read it and blatantly mischaracterizing it which they’re already doing, then it’s even tougher on them but this is sorta, ‘Well, I know what’s in it. I’m being briefed. I have a basic outline of the bill, but no, I haven’t read the whole thing. Of course not!’ Why not? It’s only ten pages. ‘Well, I have other things to do here. Basically we know what this bill is, racist bill, and it profiles people.’
This fits the agenda, it fits the template, and they don’t want to know anything else. They don’t want to know that what they are saying about it is not true. They lie. They have to lie. They wouldn’t get to first base in an election in this country, nationally, if they were honest and forthright about their agenda.
