RUSH: Here’s Pablo. Pablo in Ft. Lauderdale. I’m glad you called. Welcome to EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Thank you very much, Rush. I was born in Argentina, before I became an American, the best nation that ever was. I grew up learning songs of praise to Evita. In kindergarten they made us sing and dance songs of praise, that when I hear now kids in school learning songs of praise to Obama, I get a chill in my mind.
RUSH: I can imagine you do.
CALLER: Now, I want to tell you this. Most Hispanics, like me and many friends that I have, we don’t want to make America the same crappy place we came from. That’s the last thing in our hope. Most of us are conservatives. Some are conservative, I’m a patriot, I love America.
RUSH: Well, you know what, Pablo, it’s a good point. A mistake is being made in that all Spanish speaking people are being lumped into Hispanics. But of course you are Argentinean.
CALLER: I’m American.
RUSH: American. Others are Mexican, others are from Cuba, others from Hispanola, El Salvador. They’re all over the place, and they do have cultural differences. They’re not monolithic.
CALLER: But most of us do not want to make America the place where we come from. We don’t want to destroy America. We are not liberal. We’re not Democrats. We’re not socialist. We lived our own version of socialism in our nation, and it didn’t work.
RUSH: How many Hispanic arrivals might you be talking about who don’t know what the Democrat Party’s doing? They don’t know that the Democrats are in the process of turning this country into Argentina or whatever else you escaped.
CALLER: They learn quickly, like I learned, Rush, when I went from 15 to 21 years old, I was a communist myself in Argentina. So I know a communist when I hear one, when I see one. I was one. I studied. I can still sing you the International, and I can tell you by heart the manifesto. Of course I’m a patriot, I’m American and a conservative, a hundred percent now. But I can tell you, I recognize a communist. And we have that in government. And that is a terrible thing that is happening to America that I would’ve never thought could happen. I mean, if America’s gone, there is nothing left. There’s nowhere to go.
RUSH: That’s it. We are it. There is no other place on earth that is going to stand up for the freedom of anybody, anywhere.
CALLER: And I wish most Americans will stop taking all the freedoms for granted and understand that we can also collapse. I mean, it happened before. Socialism, what it does to you economically is the least of the damage. What it does to the spirit of people is absolutely horrendous and that’s forever. I have business in the Ukraine. I have to go there sometimes, and I deal with people that lived under communism. And I tell you, their spirits are broken, because they are unable to trust on anything because that’s what communism teaches you, to distrust everything, including yourself.
RUSH: That’s exactly right. That’s exactly right. Broken spirits, no hope, no aspirations, no ambition, no dreaming.
CALLER: Right. They become sarcastic and that’s the end because at that point they cannot take anything seriously, not even their own freedom, their own life. They cannot fight for their own life. They give up and they believe that that is the normal status of the man, they never saw anything else, and you cannot repair it. And we have that in Argentina, and that’s why Argentina, even though they have the third largest shale deposit in the world, is totally bankrupt and will continue to be that way as a result of Peronism, which was our own version of socialism.
RUSH: You know, Pablo, I can hear the voice of experience when you talk, I can hear it. I don’t know, I wish people like you ran for office, but I know you don’t want the media anal exam that you would get, but keep talking. Keep talking. I’m glad you called.
