RUSH: Shelly in Pittsburgh. It’s great to have you with us on the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. How are you?
RUSH: Good, good, good. Thank you for calling.
CALLER: Good. I just wanted to tell you, thank you so much for the Rush Revere books that you gave to all of us at the American Heritage Girls 20th Anniversary Convention in Indianapolis.
RUSH: Oh, yeah, you’re more than welcome. I must tell you, Kathryn was behind that. My wife Kathryn was behind the donation to that group, and they’re great. It’s an absolutely fabulous group, exactly the kind of thing going on in this country that we want to support.
CALLER: I’m so thankful that you did that. I took my three daughters to that convention. We’ve been in AHG for about four years. We absolutely love it. I have a son in Trail Life USA, love that, too, just got started in that. When we went into the auditorium and they were handing out the books, I said, “Oh, my gosh, it looks like Rush Limbaugh on the cover!” It was the book that we were gonna buy anyway for our homeschool curriculum. So my daughters, they were so happy to go to the convention and to get the book, and my youngest one read the book in 24 hours. She loved it.
RUSH: Oh, wow. I have to tell you something, Shelly, this is so important. It’s even more important than I knew when we decided to start writing this series of books. I mean, you look at what happened to marriage. You look at the all-out assault on the very founding of this country and the beliefs, the tenets, the morality, the philosophy, it’s all under assault. And it isn’t being taught, and we are teaching now in college the next wave of teachers who are never gonna learn the truth of the founding of this country. They’re gonna learn the racist, sexist, bigotry multicultural curriculum version of the United States, and that’s why I am certain Kathryn decided to make this donation. Why don’t you tell people — I’ve got one minute — tell people what American Heritage Girls is.
CALLER: American Heritage Girls is an alternative scouting group for girls, it’s more biblically based. There are over 120 badges that girls can earn. They also encourage service to the country, learning about the heritage of the country, volunteering and doing lots of service for other groups. Doing spiritual development for whatever religion you are. You earn your religious emblems in that religion and things like that. We meet a couple times a month, and there’s levels from kindergarten all the way through high school.
RUSH: How many were at the meeting over the weekend? Was it in Pittsburgh?
CALLER: We’re in Pittsburgh, but it’s all over the country. We have a troop in every state except Delaware, I believe.
CALLER: Yep, 49 states so far.
RUSH: Wow. We’re happy to be able to help, because I think groups like yours, unsung heroes, deserve all the support and recognition they can get. So we’re happy to be a part of it. Thank you much for the call.
