RUSH: Mike, Olathe, Kansas, you’re next. Great to have you here on the EIB Network. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Hello, Rush. Mega dittos. It’s great to talk to you. It’s a big one to take off my bucket list.
RUSH: (chuckling) Well, thank you very much, sir.
CALLER: Well, you’re welcome. Hey, the reason I called was I’m kind of curious. All this pushing of blame on the movie that they’ve been doing for the last week or two now, do you think maybe it could just be a way to kind of preempt or tamp down all the trouble that may come up when the “kill Osama” movie comes out? I mean it kind of does two things. It tells the people in the Middle East to quit getting so worked up about a movie, and then it also kind of makes it so that when we see them burning pictures of Obama and holding pictures of Osama, we’ll go, “There they go. They still love Obama, but they’re just mad about another movie.”
RUSH: When does that movie come out?
CALLER: I heard it was coming out in October, but then again I also heard that it might be delayed. But this just makes no sense the way Obama today is still pushing something that people stopped believing a week ago.
RUSH: They never did believe it!
CALLER: Well, that’s true.
RUSH: Nobody ever saw the (pauses) —
RUSH: — darn thing.
RUSH: Well, you know, Obama said something about this today in his UN address. “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” The future must not belong…? Now, the Drive-Bys are not reporting that. What do you make of that, Mike: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”?
CALLER: Well, I think he’s taken the focus off the fact that, you know, the movie he’s complained about now is against the prophet of Islam, and the movie he’s got coming out is against Osama Bin Laden. But I think they’re still nervous that the elections may very well still be the same. So I think they’re just trying preempt some of the stuff that may come up from that.
RUSH: You know, you’re the — I don’t know — fifth or sixth person that has talked about this movie that’s coming up, in the context of the video that Obama cites all the time. And this movie, believe me, was originally intended to come out in time for this election. It was supposed to be a campaign aid about Obama’s greatness in getting Osama. It’s Kathryn Bigelow who did The Hurt Locker, and this movie was supposed to come out, and then they delayed it for a while. For some reason, October 16th is the date. But the movie, I think it’s been pushed back to December now.
CALLER: Oh. I didn’t know that.
RUSH: I think it happened. I’m kind of foggy on this. But I remember that it was originally supposed to be released for the election. When they announced the movie, before shooting even began or they’d even cast it yet, they said it was gonna be for campaign 2012. It was going to be coming in October of 2012, and I think I read that they’ve moved it out of the campaign now and into December because it was just too obvious. They made this decision, I think, before the Middle East uprising of last week. I’m gonna have to double-check that.
But your report, nevertheless, remains valid. If a Middle East video can cause this kind of trouble, what the hell is that movie gonna do? Really, what caused this trouble was Obama himself and his convention. Not Benghazi, but Egypt. You go to Egypt, and I need to keep reminding you that the protesters there outside our embassy kept shouting, “We’re all Osamas, Obama!” Because he’d just gotten through bragging 21 times that he’d killed bin Laden at the Democrat convention. Obama didn’t do it all 21 times. Biden threw it in there, but it was mentioned 21 times.
And that, to me, if you’re looking for a reason why these people might go berserk, it would be that over a video that they haven’t seen. “The future must not belong to those who would slander the prophet of Islam.” When did it ever? You hear a statement like that, and you think, “Okay, the future used to belong to people who slandered the prophet.” When was that ever the case? It’s another straw man. But, you know, the media is not reporting it. That needs to be played side by side with Madonna’s endorsement. There’s Madonna at the Verizon Center in Washington last night urging her fans, she ordered ’em, actually, using the F-bomb and the GD bomb and excrement bomb, just urging her fans to go vote for Obama. She called him a black Muslim. (paraphrasing) “We have a black Muslim in the White House who’s for gay marriage.” The place went nuts. So we play that side by side with Obama saying, “The future should not belong to those who would slander the prophet of Islam.” I wonder what the —
Yeah, he did. Yeah, Christianity, too, yeah. It was a nice, warm wet blanket speech, campaign speech. He did do that. But, anyway, the Obama kills Osama movie is called Zero Dark Thirty. It is scheduled for release December the 19th, so they moved it back. But the trailer is out. You can watch the trailer, a good Christmas movie. Yeah, Zero Dark, Osama leveled by Obama, just in time for Christmas 2012.
RUSH: Listen. Now, there’s something else that Obama said in his UN address that, ladies and gentlemen, is lifted — well, I’m not gonna say lifted. But I just want you to listen to this. He said, “The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources.” Who have you heard say that Obama views the US that way? Me, El Rushbo, Maha Rushie. And he said it. “The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a countryÂ’s resources — it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs; workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people.”
I’m here to tell you, while some people might interpret that as a pro-business comment, that’s an anti-US comment, because he believes — do not doubt me on this — he’ll never admit it, this is as close as he’s ever gonna get. He believes this country is great and is prosperous because we have stolen the resources of other nations, and that’s how we became a superpower and that’s why we need to be cut down to size and that’s why we need to learn how the rest of the world lives. And all this claptrap about students and entrepreneurs, workers and business owners — that’s just more cliche — who seek a broader prosperity for all people. He thinks it’s government that does that and delivers that.
