RUSH: Danny in Miami, I’m glad you waited. It’s your turn here on the EIB Network. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Rush it’s definitely a pleasure to speak to you, sir. I got a couple of points. One of them is basically echoing what you said. I actually believe the Democrats feel like they are gonna win the election, that it’s not for them to lose and they’re gonna actually win it. I think it’s more of the Republicans, “Can they win it?” I’m actually concerned. I’m afraid, especially with the name Clinton, that people are just gonna vote for that name.
My feeling is, in order for us to win this election, I think whoever the candidate is for the Republicans, they have to speak directly to the African-American population, to the camera saying, “This is for the African-American population: We’re here for you!” Because the Democrats continue to make it feel like we don’t care about the African-American population, which is far from true. I think that also, the candidate should be able to go to the minority districts and stuff and have their town hall meetings there. Not only in the rich areas, but as well as the minority areas, both Hispanics and African-Americans. That’s the only way we’re gonna win this election.
RUSH: You know what’s gonna happen? By the way, I don’t disagree with you here. In fact, your first point, that the Republican nominee or the candidates in general have to find a way to address minority community, you may have point with that. I just don’t know how they do it. Do you remember the Wellstone Memorial?
RUSH: He was a senator, a Democrat — a white senator, nothing racial about it. Republican senators went to the Wellstone Memorial. They thought it was a memorial. It wasn’t. It was a political rally for the Democrats. They were booed. They had stuff thrown at them.
RUSH: They had to leave, Danny, from a memorial with thousands of people, hundreds of people. It was like a basketball arena kind of place. They had to leave it because they were so disrespected, and all they thought they were doing was showing up to pay respects to a colleague who’d been killed in a plane crash.
RUSH: So I can imagine if Republican Candidate A schedules a meeting in an African-American community part of town or area. You know, let Al Sharpton’s guys get hold of it and have a bunch of people show up and shout ’em down so they can’t even be heard. Shout, “Racist! Bigot!” They’ll start throwing things at ’em like that. How can they even get a fair hearing when you know the left is gonna stack the deck and make it look like they might not be respected by even one attendee?
CALLER: Well, I understand that. But one of the things is — and you’re right. If they go to the a town hall meeting, to a minority area, who knows what’s gonna end up happening? But at least on camera, every time they’re speaking, it’s not just to all Americans. They should literally pinpoint it to the African-American and Hispanic community. Because, to me, it’s just like my wife. My wife knows that I love her, but she wants to hear it.
RUSH: Danny? Danny, I gotta go. I’m out of time. Get his phone number for tomorrow. I want to continue this, because this is something I’m fascinated by.
