RUSH: Houston Eyewitness News Fox 26 Friday Night. This is bouncing off the video of Bernadette Lancelin that went viral. Here’s Fox Eyewitness News claiming that I caused her video to go viral.
ANCHOR: Since then a YouTube clip of her appearance on Fox 26 has gone viral. Tweeted and retreated, blogged about. Even Rush Limbaugh has been talking about her.
RUSH ARCHIVE: She’s basically saying, “Look, we just can’t fix everybody. It’s not our role. Somebody’s gotta take care of themselves here!”
ANCHOR: We spoke to Bernadette over the phone because she’s a working grandmother. She works ten-hour days Tuesday through Thursday, and eight-hour day on Friday and Saturday; has had the same job for 17 years. Bernadette pays taxes on the house that she owns and shares with her 83-year-old mother. She says she’s not done fighting for her neighborhood yet.
RUSH: And this is what she said, and she stayed on the roll that she started last week…
LANCELIN: It’s not right! Now billions of dollars want to be borrowed from the White House to help feed and house them! (chuckles) What about f(bleep) kids here in our neighborhood, in our country? Not just in this neighborhood, but in our country? All these kids? Really? Why can’t they go back? I’m sorry that the parents are in poor living conditions or surroundings or whatever’s going on out there. I don’t care. I care about what’s going on right here, in my own backyard, my neighborhood. Am I the only one in this community that’s out here that’s watching the news in the f(bleep) morning? Oh, my God. I feel alone right now in this, and I’m very saddened by it.
RUSH: Tell me. (chuckling) Don’t you feel just like her? Some days don’t you think that you’re the only person watching the news, the only person that knows what’s going on? You feel like you’re the only person that cares about what’s going on?
