RUSH: This is Nell in St. Marys, Georgia. You’re next on the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Thank you so much for taking my call, Rush. This is an urgent question.
RUSH: I’m sorry. It’s Neil. My —
RUSH: Looked like Nell. I’m sorry. It’s Neil.
CALLER: I can be Nell if you want me to. I’m just happy to be on the show.
RUSH: Wait. Who you are?
CALLER: I am Neil.
CALLER: St. Marys, Georgia.
CALLER: Camden County, the closest place you can get to Jacksonville, Florida.
RUSH: No, no. I just wanted to make sure that you were not a random, unscreened call that got through.
CALLER: Oh, no, no. I’m not a random.
CALLER: I’m just happy to be here. Quick question, though — and it’s not a quick question ’cause I can respond to a lot of things that you talked about today. But who’s paying for all these people going to different cities all over the United States of America to organize these marches? Who in the hell is paying for these things? There’s a march planned in Camden County — which is where I live — and a little area down in southeast Georgia. Who’s paying for people to come here to do that? How do people understand this? How are they organized? I don’t understand.
RUSH: The largest benefactor of Black Lives Matter is George Soros.
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: You know what that is?
CALLER: I do.
RUSH: Well, he’s a very extreme, angry and mean-spirited liberal who is doing his best to destroy capitalism wherever it is in the world. And, of course, since we are the greatest, largest capitalist outpost —
CALLER: He wants to collapse this country.
RUSH: Wants to collapse the country, exactly right. Don’t ask me why. My ability to understand these people in that sense, I’ve never understood why people want to tear down the greatest economic engine that has ever been, that enables everything they believe. It enables all their welfare benefits. It enables all of their whatever. I’ve never understood why they want to tear it down, but they do, and George Soros, the amount of money, I was stunned last week, I’ve learned George Soros has given these people $33 million in the last three or four years, $33 million.
CALLER: That’s a drop in the bucket to what’s coming in for Hillary’s campaign.
RUSH: Oh, of course. But a protest group! A presidential campaign is understandable, somebody would donate big money to that. But here’s a protest group that’s not running for office. Well, well, well, I take that back. They have a lot of influence on people who are in office and are running for it. Thirty-three million to a protest group. Guys like Tom Hayden were having to rob 7-Eleven’s to get money, Students for a Democratic Society. These guys, 33 mill, what are they using it for? How much does it cost to organize a bunch of malcontents to show up and stand around somewhere with signs and so forth?
