RUSH: Let’s listen to Fortney ‘Pete’ Stark California attack another constituent, typical Democrat behavior, last Saturday in Fremont, California. A guy in the audience asks a question about border security.
STARK: The Minutemen want to have something to say?
STARK: What? Who you going to kill today?
CONSTITUENT: Who are we going to kill today?
CONSTITUENT: Well, I just I’d like to know — well, actually American citizens are being killed right now by this drug war that’s going on.
STARK: That’s… That’s right.
CONSTITUENT: Okay, I want to know why the federal government is not doing anything, or a lot more, to seal our borders in this country so that we’re a solvent country again.
STARK: Well, we can’t get enough Minutemen armed. We’d like to get all the Minutemen armed so that they could stop shooting people here.
CONSTITUENT: It’s not our job. We’re just citizens. It’s the United States government’s job, constitutionally, to protect us.
STARK: If you knew anything about our borders —
STARK: — you would know that that’s not the case. Our borders are quite secure, thank you.
CONSTITUENT: This is a very serious gathering. You’re sitting here making fun of it.
STARK: I don’t have to make fun of you, sir. You do a fine job.
RUSH: (laughing) Fortney ‘Pete’ Stark insulting a constituent. Now, you know, what I find amazing? This is Fremont, California, and we got somebody — somebody! — who showed up out there who’s concerned about the border. What do you think the odds of that are, a constituent town hall in California and somebody actually showed up who cares about the border? The one person in California that might be concerned about it actually found his way in there and accused Fortney ‘Pete’ Stark of making fun of him. ‘No, no, sir. You’re doing a good enough job of that yourself.’ You want to hear some Fortney ‘Pete’ Stark greatest hits? He said we are killing Iraqis for amusement.
STARK OCTOBER 18 2007: They sure don’t care about finding $200 billion to fight the illegal war in Iraq. Where you gonna get that money? You gonna tell us lies like you’re telling us today? Is that how you’re going to fund the war? You don’t have money to fund the war or children, but you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we could get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.
RUSH: That was on the House floor in 2007, October the 18th, Fortney ‘Pete’ Stark. This is during a debate on the children’s health bill and how to pay for it — and of course back then we didn’t have any money. We didn’t have any money. Have plenty of money now. So, yeah, here’s another guy to put in the potential roster to replace Larry King. Fortney ‘Pete’ Stark, along with… (interruption) Seacrest, no. Seacrest has got too much to lose to go on that show. But you could put Helen Thomas. She’s on there. Put Katie Couric in there. And this guy, Fortney ‘Pete’ Stark, who puts the ‘stark’ in ‘stark raving mad.’ You’ve heard the phrase ‘stark raving mad’? He’s the guy that puts the ‘stark’ in the phrase. Fortney ‘Pete’ Stark Raving Mad.
