RUSH: Now, a lot of people are saying, ‘Rush, the NASA guy could not possibly have meant it. He couldn’t have meant it.’ Why? The NASA guy said it. What is so hard to believe about the NASA guy meaning it?
Greetings, my friends, and welcome. It’s El Rushbo behind the Golden EIB Microphone here at the Limbaugh Institute. By the way, the largest free education institution known to exist in the free or oppressed worlds, and, remember, here at the Limbaugh Institute there are no graduates, there are no degrees. The learning never stops. 800-282-2882 if you want to be on the program.
Charles Bolden is the NASA guy. It’s audio sound bite number 20, Mike, grab this thing. It’s last Wednesday on Al Jazeera in English’s Talk to Al Jazeera, host Imran Garda interviewed NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. Now, keep in mind here, folks — oh, and wait ’til you hear what Obama said about Dependence Day on Sunday. You think that I am wrong when I tell you his mission is to return the nation’s wealth to its, quote, unquote, rightful owners. Stand by. Now, remember what NASA has become under Obama. No longer about space exploration, we’re going to ground the shuttle fleet, we’re going to lease space for astronaut flight on Russian spacecraft. NASA has been told to focus on global warming, and now we have the NASA administrator on al-Jazeera last Wednesday who said this.
BOLDEN: Before I became the NASA administrator he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math. He wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.
RUSH: Now, a lot of people are saying, ‘Rush, the guy really didn’t mean it, he’s just out there, this is just a bunch of pap for the al-Jazeera audience, didn’t really mean it.’ Of course he meant it, and of course Obama said it. There’s no question. Why would he say it if he didn’t mean it? He certainly meant it for the Muslim audience and al-Jazeera. And, by the way, would somebody show me any Nobel prizes for math or science from the Muslim world? I’m going to get in a lot of trouble for this, but that’s what we do here, we make the complex understandable, we deal with the truth. Most of these claims about Muslim contributions to science and math are myths. Even, folks, the so-called Arabic numbers were actually invented by the Hindus in 500 AD. I looked this up this weekend. It was even before there was such a thing as Islam. The Hindus created the so-called Arabic numerals and you can find this in Wikipedia if you want to believe it. Charles Bolden, NASA administrator, he was asked, ‘Why are you here in the region?’ ‘Well, I’m here to spread the Muslim outreach.’ He said it, he meant it. ‘He couldn’t possibly have meant this.’ He did mean it.
RUSH: I wonder, by the way, the NASA chief, do you think he will get orders from Obama to reach out to Christian and Jewish nations using NASA and recognize Christian and Jewish contributions to math and science? Don’t hold your breath on that, folks, but it’s just a question I’m asking.
