RUSH: Now, there’s a very upsetting story out of the Afghanistan war today. Headline: “United States Army Major General Killed by an Afghan Soldier — A United States Army major general was shot and killed at close range on Tuesday by a man dressed as an Afghan soldier at a training academy on the outskirts of Kabul…” By the way, you might hear it pronounced “Kah-BOOL,” but it isn’t. It’s “KAH-bull,” K-a-b-u-l.
“The officer was the highest-ranking member of the American military to die in hostilities in the Afghanistan war. The coalition official, who spoke on condition of anonymity and would not release the name of the major general, said an unspecified number of other service members of the American-led coalition and Afghan soldiers, including a senior Afghan commander were also shot.”
Now, do you remember Fort Hood, the massacre at Fort Hood, where a member the Army stood up and shouted, “Allahu Akbar,” and just let loose and killed and wounded a number of people? Do you remember what that was called? It was called “workplace violence.” It was “workplace violence.” It was anything but what it was. They never were gonna call it “terrorism.” No way.
It could not have been the result of militant Islamists infiltrating the US Army. “Hell, no! That couldn’t happen. Our security is too tight; that could never have happened. It’s somebody that just cracked, just like in your office. It’s just ‘workplace violence.'” Well, I don’t know what President Obama is going to say, if anything, about this major general killed in Afghanistan.
But I wouldn’t be surprised if the way he describes it is, quote, “An Army general was a victim of workplace violence today. It seems there was a little trouble with some of the folks over in Afghanistan. I’ll have more about this after I save the country from the Tea Party Republicans.” (interruption) No, I doubt that he would say it. I wouldn’t be surprised, is the point. (interruption) One thing is an act of war and another one’s not?
Workplace violence! See, even workplace violence is political. This is the thing. All these people — average, ordinary Americans, some of them low-information — talking about how much they hate politics, have no idea how everything they care about or are interested in, has been politicized. They don’t see it. As such, they don’t see the Democrats as political.
The Democrats are the ones that politicize all these things. The Democrats. Google, Facebook, Twitter. Who are these people? They’re all liberal Democrats! They all donate, they all promote, they all vote liberal Democrat. Everything they do is political. But since these people don’t see “politics” in all that is political, and they know these people are all Democrats, why, then it’s not political — and why do they hate politics?
Well, you reduce it down to they hate politics because of the Republicans. “The Republicans are the ones that make everything political,” and the poor old sap Republicans, they’re just sitting around. They get up in fear every day wondering what the hell is gonna be thrown at ’em that day. The Republicans haven’t been on the aggressive warpath in I don’t know how long.
The Republicans aren’t doing diddly-squat, except sitting there getting blamed for everything and being told how they’re haters and they’re racists and they’re bigots. And the guys that are making everything political escape any association with politics, which these low-information people claim to hate. So therefore who’s political? Republicans are! This is how it all works.
This is why my quest to get everybody possible, as many as possible, to see the politics in everything. Right now when you’re a person that sees “politics” in everything, you’re an extremist to people that don’t get it. “That’s crazy. You’re just crazy. You’re tinfoil hats. You find a conspiracy theory behind every simple little occurrence.”
No, no, no, no. I just understand the left. I just understand them front to back, top to bottom, sideways to sideways. I understand them. I know how they do it. I know what they’re gonna say before they say it, how they’re gonna react before they react, because I understand their politics.
