RUSH: Folks, the Reverend Jackson and Ralph Nader got together at Ewing, New Jersey, at the College of New Jersey. They held a joint lecture on the state of the economy. During the Q&A an unidentified pupil — a pupil reporter, student reporter — said (doing impression), ‘My question is far more abstract like, you know, and I — I — I know you’ve been talking about it pretty much, like, the entire time but, like, do you think there’s, like, a need for a revolution in America — and if so, for what cause?
NADER: A nonviolent revolution is long overdue. Why don’t the American people learn from their history? Why don’t they learn from what’s going on in some countries over in the Middle East?
JACKSON: We need a, uh — a revolution, a rev — a counter — a revolution to stop a counterrevolution. A revolution that ultimately was violent, but was started in Montgomery, Birmingham, uh, Cairo, South Africa, they were nonviolent revolutions. You can destroy an institution without destroying people.
RUSH: So you have the Reverend Jackson and Ralph Nader calling for revolution. If you’re having trouble hearing that, the — the Reverend Jackson said, ‘We need a, uh — a revolution, a rev — a counter — a revolution to stop a counterrevolution. A revolution that ultimately was violent, but was started in Montgomery, Birmingham, uh, Cairo, South Africa, they were nonviolent revolutions. You can destroy an institution without destroying people.’ The student reporter, I’m sure, was wildly satisfied with that cogent answer from both guests. And after the lecture the student reporter then said, ‘Well, what is your opinion on America’s slow acceptance of the reality of global warming?’ Now, the student here at the College of New Jersey’s asking Ralph Nader and the Reverend Jackson to explain ‘America’s slow acceptance of the reality of global warming.’
NADER: You hear every day Rush Limbow (sic) and, you know, this huge ignorance movement going on. Who’s the counter-action to Limbaugh, right? But learn as things start melting.
NADER: The beaches and so on.
NADER: He’ll — he’ll learn.
RUSH: Okay. So it’s me. ‘You hear every day Rush Limbaugh and, you know, this huge ignorance movement going on. Who’s the counter-action to Limbaugh, right? But learn as things start melting, the beaches and so on.’ The beaches are gonna melt, and he calls me ignorant. I’m leader of a huge ignorance movement. (interruption) Yeah. When my house starts melting or when my house starts sinking ’cause the beach is melting then I’ll know. I don’t know what the beach melts in. Let’s not forget we gotta cut Nader some slack. He called Obama a conman just a few weeks ago. Let’s face it, Ralph… (sigh)
Ralph has been peddling some form of Marxism in different vehicles, including the Corvair here, for the last half century, and he’s still… Where is he? He still can’t get off of small college campi. This is not even on CNN. If it weren’t for us with our kindness and compassion here, why, nobody would have ever heard this. (interruption) Well, I know the dopey college kid was going, ‘Yeah, hmm, hmm, yeah.’ (interruption) Maybe just being polite? No, remember, she first wanted to know: When do we start on this revolution thing? When do we get that going? The Reverend Jackson started to talking about revolutions and counter revolutions in Cairo and Sel-muh and, where is it, Montgomery and Birmingham and South Africa.
