RUSH: Let’s go to Albany in New York. This Peggy. Peggy, thank you for calling. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Thank you. Rush, I’m calling about, I believe, that the president is in denial about terrorism. And he’s been that way from the beginning. Yes, he has drones that come across and do the deeds that have to be done, but that’s because he has to answer to some career people. But if you take Fort Hood, Benghazi, the Fort Dix Six people, the recruiter that was killed in Arkansas, the Times Square bomber, okay, he wasn’t successful, but the other people were. They are all in the same category. These are jihadists who come from Islamic countries — not all Islamics are bad, obviously — comes from Islamic countries who want to kill us. They hate us. I’m a woman. I have freedom. I can do whatever I want.
RUSH: Why do they hate us? People want to know.
CALLER: They hate us because of our freedom.
CALLER: Because I have the freedom —
RUSH: You know that these people hate female athletes as much as —
CALLER: They hate females, period.
RUSH: — as much as they do females in a bikini.
CALLER: Oh, yeah.
RUSH: They do. Now, you said you think the president is in denial.
CALLER: Yes, absolutely. He does not want to admit that there is terrorism.
CALLER: He has these views of America that are, I hate to say it because he’s our president and I want to respect him, but other people have said this and got in trouble, but he’s not like a real American. I can’t explain it. But —
RUSH: Yeah, you can, you just wisely don’t want to say it. Look, I don’t think he’s in denial.
CALLER: Well, he doesn’t want to prosecute these people like terrorists.
RUSH: That’s true. But it’s not because he’s in denial. It’s because he’s trying to convince everybody’s Al-Qaeda’s on the run. He’s trying to convince everybody he’s defeated terrorism. He’s trying to convince everybody — for the advancement of his agenda — that we beat it back. Remember, this guy wants to cut the defense budget dramatically.
CALLER: Oh, yeah.
RUSH: What did Obama talk about in his remarks? The need for diversity. If we’re more diverse, we’ll send a message that the terrorists don’t need to attack us. Not only does he try to create the impression he’s defeated it, he actually wants — don’t forget who he is.
RUSH: Messianic complex. He thinks still, I think, that he can talk ’em out of it.
CALLER: Absolutely. Absolutely.
RUSH: ‘Cause he’s a good guy. He’s the first good guy this country’s ever really had. And if he just has a chance to talk to ’em, like the Cairo speech, they’ll go away. They’ll realize we’re not a threat, that we love ’em, we have no intention to harm ’em, and they’ll stand down and therefore the only people that commit terrorism will be white guys that do videos that we’ll put in jail.
CALLER: Well, he got away with it in Benghazi, with the whole Benghazi thing right before the election. And he got away with it with Fort Hood, saying workplace violence. I mean, some of this stuff makes me so angry because so many people in my family have been in the military.
RUSH: I know what you mean by “in denial.” Denial means he’s not seeing reality. He knows full well what’s going on. He’s trying to make sure that you don’t see it that way. His purpose is to talk you out of believing what you just said you believe here. That’s the objective.
