RUSH: We’ll return here to Cincinnati. Ron, great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Rush it’s a pleasure and honor to speak with you. Thank you for taking my call.
RUSH: You bet, sir.
CALLER: Hey, a couple of weeks ago when your book went into presale and shot to the top of Amazon, I was listening. Congratulations, by the way. But it was interesting the comments that you were seeing out of the left. It was pure vitriol that you were gonna be telling the truth and that they were then gonna have to redo all that they had done so far to rewrite the history of our founding.
RUSH: There were. There were posts on Twitter and Facebook from angry Democrats effectively saying, “We spent 50 years getting this story turned upside down, and now this guy’s come along and is gonna do what he was doing.” They felt I was gonna come along and corrupt their “truth.”
CALLER: Well, the point I’d like to make — and thank you very much for making it — is we all, in our own communities, need to find ways to make sure that the truth is told. You know, you’ve got the bully pulpit, and we thank you for that, but everybody in every community needs to find ways to make sure that the truth is being told and that we celebrate our founding, celebrate the documents and the principles upon which this nation was founded.
RUSH: It is so important. I can’t tell you how right you are. It is so important. A lot of people think it’s hokey now. “Well, Rush, that’s 200-and-some-odd years ago. This is the world today.” It’s not hokey. The days of our founding are the library of our freedom — and that’s never an insignificant thing, freedom, and there’s no harm that can come to anybody knowing the truth of this country.
