RUSH: So I’m telling you, folks, we’re dealing in a genuine low-information universe. It’s perhaps worse than we even know. I was talking to a friend about this event this morning, and I came to a conclusion. I’ve mentioned on this program a number of times that we’ve exhausted all of our persuasive attempts, other than a concerted TV ad campaign.
We’ve exhausted every bit of persuasive talent that we have. We own talk radio, and Fox News for the most part. We’ve done everything we can, and yet no impact. So we’ve all been waiting for an event. And when I’ve said this, people have assumed I meant a hurricane or a tornado, some sort of natural disaster, a God event. No, no, no. I don’t mean that. I’m talking about “event” in politics. Let me tell you what I think it’s gonna be. It’ll be something that will wake people up about Obama.
It isn’t gonna be anything serious. It isn’t gonna be anything substantive. Something like this is gonna happen: Obama is gonna be talking to somebody on open mike, and he’s gonna diss Justin Timberlake’s latest CD, and the country is gonna get outraged, and they’ll turn on Obama. See, it’s gonna be something like that, or he’ll diss Beyonce. By the way, there are a lot of people dissing Beyonce. Have you heard about Beyonce? Have you heard what Beyonce did? Let me give you a little history on Beyonce.
Beyonce used to be the lead for a three-girl group called Destiny’s Child, and their songs were attempts to inspire young women not to take any grief from men. Right, Mr. Snerdley? Essentially don’t take any grief. Don’t let these guys walk over you. Don’t do this; don’t do that. Walk away! You don’t need to put up with that. She’s done; took a 180. Beyonce, now having been married, having been impregnated and giving birth to Blue Ivy, is going out on a new tour and they may as well call it “the Bow Down, B-i-itch Tour.”
She’s got a new song. Can I say it? It’s on the popular charts. “Bow Down, Bitches” is the new tune. A total 180. Beyonce’s now saying, “Go ahead and put up with it,” and you know why? I’ll tell you why. Because she got married. She’s married to the rich guy. She’s even calling herself “Mrs. Carter” on the tour. She has shelved “Beyonce.” She’s no longer being called that. She’s gonna call herself “Mrs. Carter” on the Bow Down, Bitches Tour. That’s the title of the single that’s fronting the tour.
The advice to these women is, “Go ahead and put up with it. Put up with it now. Bow down, b-i-itches,” because why? She got married. She married the rich guy and she now understands. She now understands it’s worth it to bow down, and so now she’s passing on this advice. There’s a big story about this in the UK Telegraph, a major story on…? Not Obama’s trip to Israel. It’s a major story about Beyonce’s tour and what it’s called and how she’s Mrs. Carter and how she’s now advising women to put up with it.
When you find the right guy, you put up with it, bow down, and the story in the UK Telegraph is written by an angry woman who feels betrayed by Beyonce. This woman is not gonna bow down. The woman who wrote this piece is not gonna do it. I have it here. I have so many stacks of stuff that if I get everything in this program, this is gonna be one for the ages. I’ve got 15 stacks here. I don’t know where I put it. Right here.
Ah! Ah! Here it is. It’s by Felicity Capon: “Beyonce’s new single, Bow Down, marks a change in direction for the independent woman the US president handpicks to play at his parties. Felicity Capon explains why the lyrics leave a bitter taste.” It’s a huge story. So I’m telling you: The thing that’s gonna shake this country up is gonna be Obama on an open mike dissing Timberlake’s latest CD or his latest fashion line, or maybe saying something negative about Beyonce. You watch. Don’t doubt me.
