RUSH: San Bernardino, California. This is Larry. Welcome, sir. It’s great to have you. Hi.
CALLER: Hello. Can you hear me?
RUSH: I hear you fine. Yeah.
CALLER: Okay, good. Well, first of all, what I want to say is, thank you for everything you’ve done and everything you’re doing, because you’re doing this for the black people, too. Big time for the black people. And I want to say this. And, you know, I wish they would stop calling this man — I can’t call him no president — this man in the White House, the first black president, because he’s not the first black president. He does not have the same bloodlines that blacks in America have. His bloodline is totally different from ours, in the way he is going about California, I’m talking about like Riverside, San Bernardino, Fontana, Ontario, LA, Bakersfield, everywhere blacks, no work, ’cause all the jobs he gave to illegal immigrants. They got the jobs, and they got the money.
RUSH: You know, I have been waiting for somebody like you to say something like this. And the idea — what you’re basically saying is that he’s not got a civil rights linkage in his life, the civil rights coalition or past, he’s not down for the struggle. He comes from a different experience.
CALLER: That’s right.
RUSH: And he’s taken jobs away from you people by opening up immigration, and that’s gonna lower wages for everybody, for illegal immigrants, and you’re basically saying he’s got no loyalty to us.
CALLER: He don’t. You know, they want to say in Washington that we took impeachment off the table because he’s the first black president. Well, he’s not the first black president ’cause the first black president is yet to come, and he is not. And impeachment is what black people want. They want him out of the White House.
RUSH: Well, no, that’s not entirely true. The first black president was Bill Clinton.
CALLER: No. No. Bill Clinton is nowhere — him and his wife both are just like Obama. You know, they hate blacks, Obama haters.
RUSH: Now, wait a minute. Wait a second now, that —
CALLER: He’s got every reason to hate us, too.
RUSH: That’s going a little far. They don’t hate blacks.
CALLER: Yes he do. How can he not hate us? He takes everything away from us and give it to somebody else. What do you call that?
RUSH: Folks, let me tell you something, it’s a fascinating take. I’ve done this exercise a lot. If I were African-American and if I fit the bill, I’d vote Democrat every opportunity because I believe the Republicans don’t like me and have great harm intended for me. The Democrats are looking out for me, and so I’m gonna vote for them. They’re gonna take care of me. They’re gonna protect me against the racists. They’re gonna protect me against these evil Republicans.
After a while I’m gonna say, “What am I getting out of this? What am I getting for this?” And now especially it seems that the Democrat Party’s more interested in the Hispanic minority than they are in the black minority, and I’ve been waiting for somebody to make this connection. I’m glad you called, Larry.
By the way, speaking of this, Charlie Rangel went back to CNN today. Wolf Blitzer wanted to give Charlie Rangel a chance to walk back his comment that Republicans still want there to be slavery, and Charlie Rangel doubled down on it. Blitzer was clearly distressed, pointed out, how can you say this? Republicans just elected Tim Scott, the first black senator South Carolina since Reconstruction. He’s a Republican. And Rangel doubled down on it. (imitating Rangel) “You can’t fool me. They all Dixiecrats, and they all want, if they had their druthers, they’d be wanting to have slavery still.”
Even today, Charlie Rangel’s out saying what the Republicans really, really want is to reinstitute slavery. (interruption) I don’t know. I worry about where Charlie’s mind is to assume it was okay yesterday. I don’t think Charlie’s been right for a long time about anything, but, you know, the problem is that Charlie got reelected. People believe him. You know, I don’t know how isolated that is. But, I’m telling you, that’s not a service to his constituents in any way, shape, manner, or form. Larry, thanks much.
