RUSH: Jeremiah, 29 years old in Galena, Kansas. Great to have you on the program, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Oh, yeah. Great to be here, Rush. I just want to say, thank you for having me. I’m really nervous talking to you because it’s a first-time call. But I wanted to say in response to that caller that was on just a few minutes ago, some things are worth fighting for, you know? I would never let my child go to restroom at a young age by herself — or my son, who was just born. Whenever he’s even old enough to walk, I would never let them go to the restroom by themselves. I’d always be their protector.
But, you know, the thing is, there’s gonna come a time when I’m not gonna be able to protect them anymore. Whenever you say, “You know, you’re five, six years old. Yeah, you can go use the bathroom,” and I don’t want to have to worry about at that time, “Hey, is there someone in there that might not be on the up and up?” and then beyond that, you know, I just… I don’t think it’s wrong for you to take up this fight and let people know that you’re being polarized, you know, with Trump saying the things he said.
“Hey, it’s okay. Just look the other way.” You know, I say that against Trump. Now, I’m not a Trumpist. I think he’s a little bit too aggressive and definitely too far to the left to lead the Republican Party. But, you know, I’m a middle-right guy, and the thing with Cruz is… I’m a Cruz fan, but it’s just because he wants to stick to the Constitution. He wants to stick to what’s right. You know, keeping our families safe and making the way of life the best they can be.
And, you know, I just… This is one final thought I had, if you’ll hear me here. It is, you know, politics are about finding what matters to you and what’s reliable. You know, how does it affect your life? How, you know, people speak up about things whenever it matters to them. And, you know, my family and my family’s way of life is what matters to me, you know? So all those things are being threatened right now, and the fight that you lead every day is just wonderful, and I wanted to say thank you.
RUSH: You know, you did remarkably well. You didn’t sound nervous at all.
CALLER: Oh, I’m shake… I’m shaking on the phone. No joke. I took the time when I was on hold to write down my thoughts so I wouldn’t be too scrambled, but, you know —
RUSH: Well, whatever you did, it worked, because you didn’t sound scrambled at all. You were cogent. You got in there, you got it, you got out. Your timing was great. Everything about it was perfect.
CALLER: Yeah, well, I just… You know, there’s one person in my life that made an impression on me more than anything, and that was my grandmother. You know, the greatest Christian woman you would ever come to meet. I love her to this day. But, you know, she’d be ashamed of the rot and the fact of the way the culture is moving, and, “It’s okay,” you know? It’s just okay! “Yeah, you know, let’s not fight that fight. Let’s not stand up.”
CALLER: “Let’s just let it go,” and it’s just not right. You know, at some point, it has to stop.
RUSH: That’s why I say, “If you adopt that about everything, it’s gonna be controversial. You may as well just shut up and let everybody come to you.” Hee-hee-hee. Amazing how that works. Thank you, Jeremiah.
