RUSH: El Paso, Texas. Scott, great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. How you doing?
RUSH: Very good, sir. Thank you.
CALLER: I’ve been with you since 1988, and I’m thrilled and honored to speak with you.
RUSH: It’s my pleasure, sir.
CALLER: I wanted to bring up today the point of male circumcision. We’re told consistently by liberals and Democrats that the government should not be in charge of women’s uteruses or their vaginas.
RUSH: Yeah, get your hands off my body.
CALLER: In San Francisco they want to put their hands on our penises, and I think that once it starts there it’s gonna go across the United States. I reject it. I think the government should keep their hands off our penises.
RUSH: Yeah, it is an interesting way to look at this, although they’re not talking about hands. They’re talking about sharper, errr, well, actually they are talking about hands, now that you mention it. Yes, you’re right, you’re right.
CALLER: Well, it’s just aerodynamic —
RUSH: But what gives them the right, exactly right, and these are San Francisco libs, you’re right, the same people who say, “My body is my temple. You can’t tell me what I can and can’t do with my own body.” It will be interesting to see how this vote goes. We got 7,000 signatures to qualify. I’ll be fascinated to see, ’cause this NOCIRC bunch, folks, has been working on this for 25 years, or whatever it is since 1984. It’s the National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Centers. They want to eliminate circumcision, at least up to age 18. After that, you can choose to be circumcised on your own on your 19th birthday. But up to age 18, you can’t do anything about it if you’re born in San Francisco. It is kind of a funny thing to say to citizens of San Francisco, “Keep your hands off our penises.”
