RUSH: I was thinking about something last night. I happened to mention to Kathryn, ‘You know, if I was everything the left says I am, I would be one of them.’ If I was everything they say I am, I’d be one of them. Let’s take the template, all right? Follow me on this. Let’s take, at face value, the template that the partisan political hacks spew at me. I am, according to them, anti-women’s rights. Equal rights for women is no concern of mine, right? I’m the guy that came up with the name ‘feminazi.’ I’m not a friend of women’s rights, they say. If that were true, I would be pushing for the mosque at Ground Zero. If I were anti-women’s rights, I would be all for Sharia law. Sharia law is a not-so-stealth way to undermine women’s rights in this country. It would be a perfect cause if I was who they say I am.
Anti-women’s rights is a cause of the left. That’s who’s pushing Sharia in this country: The left. It’s the left that wants a mosque at Ground Zero. It’s left who thinks ‘America’s chickensssss came home to roost’ on 9/11. It’s the American left that thinks we got what we deserved on 9/11. It’s the American left that wants the mosque at Ground Zero. No one can be pro-women’s rights and remain silent about the metastasizing cancer that Sharia law is on women’s rights. They say that I am anti-equal rights for the races. I’m accused of racism every day of the week by the left, yet what do we see out of the NAALCP? We have videos at official NAALCP functions that are racist, that are divisive, filled with rage and anger. We have the New Black Panthers. We have ‘La Raza,’ The Race.
We have heartfelt eulogies for Klan members like Robert ‘Sheets’ Byrd from Bill Clinton. (impression) ‘Yeah, he came from the hills and the hollers of West Virginia. He did some things he regretted later in life. He made amends for them but he had to do what he had to do because he had to get elected…for you!’ So they excuse a Klansman. He had to get elected. Who applauds organizations that divide us by race? It’s not I. It should be me, given their propensity to see and treat people according to the color of their skin, but it’s not I. It’s not I that divide people into groups. It’s not I that sees, ‘Ah, there’s a black! Ah, there’s a black woman! There’s a Hispanic woman! There’s a Hispanic!’ I don’t see people that way; they do. So if I were the man they say that I am, I would be one of them.
Who divides this nation into tribes? Who divides this nation into Jews, Indians, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, women, male ancestors of slave owners? Who is it that says a black is not ‘authentic’ if there’s no ‘slave blood’ in the genealogy? It’s not I. It’s the left. Who is it that writes columns saying there’s not enough real, genuine blackness in the Obama White House? It’s not I. It’s Maureen Dowd. Who’s looking at the Obama White House and saying, ‘It’s not black enough’? It’s not I. It’s Maureen Dowd of the New York Times. Who wrote a column called ‘Obama the ‘Magic Negro” saying he’s only going to get the support of whites ’cause they’re guilty and they think they’re going to assuage their guilt by voting for a black guy they don’t even know?
It wasn’t I. It was a leftist black guy named David Ehrenstein from the Los Angeles Times. It wasn’t I. No big tent from these people. There are lots of little tents to accommodate all the tribes, but you gotta stay in your tent. ‘You Hispanics, you gotta stay there. We’ll keep you, but you’ve gotta stay there. You can’t join us in the ruling class.’ The left is there to keep them all angry, to make sure that they all have common enemies, and to sell ’em snake oil to make it all better. It’s not I. I don’t do any of that. Nor do you. Nor does any conservative. And they say of all us conservatives, ‘You’re just a bunch of Nazis. Bush is Hitler!’ Well, who is the Nazi? Wouldn’t that be a person who was a Nationalist Socialist and anti-Israel? Well, I’m not a socialist, and I’m certainly not anti-Israel. How in the world can I be a Nazi?
The left is closer to the politics of Nazis than I will ever be. The person who was a National Socialist and anti-Israel would be anti-capitalist; pro-nationalization of health care, banks, education, car companies; pro-Central Planning; and try to force Israel (against its will and history) to divide its capital, Jerusalem, and to cave in to all of its enemies. None of that describes me. It describes them. It describes the left. Meaning if I were all that they say I am, I’d be one of them. Here is a leftist statist liberal, a person who believes that people should be treated differently according to their gender, the color of their skin, and their religion. Such as: Let’s use NASA to help Muslims feel better about themselves in math and science, and let Muslims build Sharia law shrines anywhere they want and pretend that we don’t know what that means.
Those are all-important factors to the left on how to interact with others. The Sherrods believe all this. I mentioned yesterday: These people vanished from the headlines overnight, did they not? The Sherrods are gone, because Andrew Breitbart was right. These people are racists. They’re on videotape. It’s conclusive. Eric Holder believes, ‘Go ahead and build a mosque. Not only build a mosque, build a Sharia mosque — and not only that, let’s give Khalid Sheikh Mohammed a trial in New York City to spew his hatred for this country for years, and let’s spend a couple hundred million dollars a year on security to make it happen.’ Uh, that’s a leftist. That’s not me. The NAALCP believes in using NASA to reach out to Muslims.
The NAALCP has no problem with a mosque at Ground Zero. Their leader, Barack Obama, believes all that they believe. Barack Obama and his right-hand man, Eric Holder, believe that the New Black Panthers should not be prosecuted for violating the voting Civil Rights Act of white people, but white people should be prosecuted for violating the civil rights of blacks. I don’t think that. They do. Obama wants Jerusalem cut up by Israel’s factions and given to the Muslims, and he has no problem with the mosque at Ground Zero or mosques that preach the virtues of Sharia law. In fact, we have to ‘reach out’ to them. We have to show ’em that we mean ’em no harm. That’s why.
Race, religion, gender, dividing us into tribes, preventing the United States from becoming a true melting pot. With the left as the chef here, folks, we’re just a bunch of different ingredients, never meant to blend together into the same recipe to become one fantastic dish. It’s an incredible backwards, non-progressive, destructive way to view and manipulate people. Either we are equal under the law or we are not. Either character is more important than skin color or it isn’t. Either they’ve ‘come a long way, baby,’ or they haven’t, but that’s who the left is. Their policies, their organizations, their behavior all define them, and all defy their self-descriptions. That’s why if I was the person they say I am, I would be a liberal. If you, as a conservative, believed what they say you believe — if you were the person they say you are — we would all be among them. We would all be liberals. They are the ones who divide. They’re the racists. They’re the bigots. They’re the sexists.
