RUSH: I must warn those of you in Big Bear Lake, California, there’s a nut on the loose. He’s on the prowl. He’s shooting people. This former cop, this Dorner guy, he’s running around, and he loves left-wingers and so forth. I think the safest thing for those of you to do in the area where he is thought to be is turn in your guns now. They tell us that will stop him.
That’s right, because nothing strikes fear into killers like people that don’t have any guns. That’s what Obama tells us, and that’s what the experts who are trying to make us all safer say. So you got a madman on the loose. He happens to love left-wingers. That, by the way, is being ignored. That’s kind of funny in itself. You know this guy kinda looks like Casey Hampton, the nose tackle of the Steelers. I saw this while doing the program yesterday, I saw the pictures of this guy. I didn’t know what the story was yet because all I saw were the pictures. I said, “What’s Casey Hampton in the news for?”
It turns out it’s not Casey Hampton. It’s this former Los Angeles Police Department officer, Christopher Dorner ,who has allegedly shot and killed three innocent people in cold blood. If they had just maybe turned in their guns, they’d be alive today. It makes people safer. You need to learn that. Christopher Dorner, the subject of a massive manhunt, posted an 11,000-word manifesto on Facebook. Thank goodness we have Facebook. We don’t have to wait for permission from the New York Times. Remember the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, the last mass murderer who was a devout devotee of left-wingers, he had Algore’s book and so forth. The Unabomber is blowing people up, pipe bombs and stuff. One of them was in Sacramento when I lived there, not far from the KFBK studios at the time.
Anyway, this guy publishes an 11,000-word manifesto on Facebook that details his plans, which include targeting cops. I must tell you, you know, Michelle Malkin has this site called Twitchy. What she is does is aggregate a bunch of different tweets out there so that tweeterers don’t have to go to a bunch of different tweet people. And apparently there are thousands of people urging this guy on, praising him as a real-life Django. I kid you not. They’re praising this guy, tweet after tweet after tweet, praising this guy as a real-life Django, who is gonna “kick they ass,” quote, unquote.
I’m not kidding. If you haven’t seen the movie, then you don’t know what this is. But if you’ve seen it or know about it, believe it, this guy’s got a cult following, and they’re urging him on. You know, folks, after every such incident, what’s the first thing that happens? The Drive-Bys do everything they can to find out if the lunatic listens to me or watches Fox or listens to talk radio, and even if there’s no evidence, they go ahead and report that it’s likely that the lunatic does. Well, there’s a trial going on. Remember this clown that got hired as a security guard and blew up people at an office building in Maryland? It turns out that he got his information from the Southern Poverty Law Center. This is this wacko left-wing site that exists ostensibly to alert people to the racism and the bigotry and the hatred on the right.
So this guy goes to the Southern Poverty Law Center website, where they’ve got a hate map. What is this clown’s name? This guy looks like he ought to be working at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, this Mark Potok. Anyway, they’ve got this hate map on this site. This guy from the Southern Poverty Law Center, all over television, every time something like this happens, they blame right-wingers. He’s got this hate map with locations of where conservatives live and work, conservative organizations. That’s where this guy got the information to go shoot people.
Mark Potok looks like The Walking Dead. This guy looks like he could star on that show. He looks like he’d be one of the walkers. No, I’m not I’m trying to be insulting. I’m just sharing with you my impressions of the man when I look at him. We’re painting a picture. It’s what we do on radio. It’s theater of the mind. So if I tell you the guy looks like he could be a walker on The Walking Dead, you have a pretty good idea what he looks like.
So now this Dorner guy in this 11,000-page manifesto praises Ellen DeGeneres and Charlie Sheen about whom he said, “You are F-ing awesome, dude.” Jennifer Beals, Serena Williams, Tamron Hall, who’s an infobabe at MSNBC, Natalie Portman, Queen Latifah, Kelly Clarkson, Norah Jones, Margaret Cho, and Rutina Wesley. And then he has a bunch of left-wing journalists that he idolizes and encourages and claims to draw inspiration from. They are Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad O’Brien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Vieira, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper, to whom he sent something. He sent Anderson a gift package. Anderson opened it, I think he revealed the contents, I haven’t heard that.
Of these journalists he says, “Look, keep up the great work and follow Cronkite’s lead. I hold many of you in the same regard as Tom Brokaw and the late Peter Jennings.” Now, remember, ladies and gentlemen, Gabby Giffords, they named Sarah Palin and her website, “crosshairs” on a congressional district as being responsible for Gabby Giffords. Then they blamed me, and there was some sheriff out there, Clarence Dupnik, the guy that was investigating the Tucson shooting that left Gabrielle Giffords critically wounded. “The kind of rhetoric that flows from people like Rush Limbaugh, in my judgment he is irresponsible, uses partial information, sometimes wrong information.” This is the Pima County sheriff. “[Limbaugh] attacks people, angers them against government, angers them against elected officials and that kind of behavior in my opinion is not without consequences.”
Meanwhile, the guy that did the shooting had never heard of me. He was a lunatic. He’d never heard of Sarah Palin. Every one of these incidents they always go out of their way to blame me or blame Palin or whoever they think is at the peak at the moment of conservative influence. Now you’ve got this guy, this Dorner guy, and they’re ignoring it, 100% totally ignoring it. Dorner has also praised Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton, praised Obama, and he said Colin Powell inspired his life. He’s a madman lunatic on the loose, shooting people, aiming at cops, claiming he’s a victim of discrimination and racism and all that.
The other case that I was talking about involved a guy named Floyd Lee Corkins. Floyd Lee Corkins pleaded guilty to attempting to murder members of the Family Research Council in Washington last summer. He said that he wanted to, quote, “kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-fil-A sandwiches that he had bought in victims’ faces and kill the guard.” How did he choose the Family Research Council? From a “hate map” published by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is run by that character that looks like he could star in The Walking Dead, Mark Potok, who is a guy that exists to try to blame conservatives for all this.
So the two most recent examples of out-of-control murderers are left-wing lunatics. Most of them are. Then the others are terrorists. Even Mayor Doomberg tried to blame me, and those of us who didn’t like Obama’s health care bill, for the Times Square bomber.
Now we have one of these people on the loose who is praising all these Democrat journalists, Democrat politicians and Hollywood stars for inspiring him. I mean, there’s no supposition here, folks. There’s no presumption, assumption. There’s no imagining it. It’s right out there in front of everybody’s nose. The guy is admitting it. Floyd Corkins’ guilty plea the other day didn’t get any press coverage at all. Zip, zero, nada!
Again, we’re into public service and helping people here, and I think Big Bear Lake — and, by the way, you talk about this snowstorm in the Northeast, but there’s one at Big Bear Lake as well. There’s a big time snowstorm out there. People are wondering: Could the guy — could Christopher Dorner — survive in the elements overnight? They brought Mark Fuhrman on Fox. He said, “Hell, yes, he could! I’ve done it myself. A backpack’s all you need out there.”
Anyway, they’ve locked down Big Bear Lake. It’s a big resort, and they’ve locked it down. Everybody’s scared to death. I’m just telling you people out there: Turn in your guns. That will stop him.
RUSH: By the way, about Christopher Dorner, I want to predict where this is gonna go. He played football, therefore he suffered concussions. You know, this is already being used as an excuse for questionable, aberrant behavior, because the game of football is far more dangerous than anybody knew, and this guy played football at some level in his life. You watch.
