RUSH: Okay, to the phones we go, and we go to Boston. Scott, I’m really glad that you waited. Good to have you, sir, on the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Rush, you’re my hero.
RUSH: I appreciate that, sir. Thank you very much.
CALLER: Well, you are, and I have to say: While waiting, the parodies are something that I’ve never heard. I guess you don’t hear them unless you’re waiting to talk to you, but those are hilarious from Birdbrain Flu on to Barney Frank’s album.
RUSH: Oh, yeah. I’m glad you like those. Those have been aired throughout the program’s history, and we just recycle them there rather than play dumb elevator music for you.
CALLER: Sounds good. Don’t ever give up, by the way, or relent or relinquish talking about the racist thing. I hold my kids to listen. I’ve been telling ’em for a long time, “Are you able to discuss things in the arena of ideas, but just in particular the racist thing?” As far as credibility goes for you, you were married by The Hutch, a black minister. You had Elton John playing at your wedding.
So in terms of having credibility to discuss the issue in terms of where you’re at, I mean, that kind of thing is something that needs to be know for just people who pick up and listen to you and just might hear about you on a small-time basis. But the reason I called is, you know, I’m trying not to be emotional about it, but it’s hard not to be. There’s a Twitter mayhem going on up here in Boston about the Rolling Stone cover, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in a sort of fluffy teenage book from Facebook.
RUSH: You know, that is amazing. There is almost a celebratory photo of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover of Rolling Stone. This guy is being romanticized. I know that there is tumult in Boston over this. I’ll tell you, Scott, it’s just more evidence of the decline that’s happening all over our culture.
RUSH: For those of you in Boston: CVS, the drugstore chain, has announced on its Facebook page that the company will not sell current issue of Rolling Stone with the romanticized cover of the Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, which is good. We should never be treated to a terrorist bomber who blew up children being romanticized by the Drive-By Media on the covers of their magazine. So CVS will not sell the latest issue of Rolling Stones.
