RUSH: Now, the front-runner for the Democrat nomination as we sit here today — do not doubt me on this — is Bernie Sanders. You disagree with me or you don’t believe it? Well, believe it, because the Democrat Party is no more the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party is the party of American communism.
And if you look at what Bernie Sanders stands for, where did Bernie Sanders honeymoon? Moscow. Bernie Sanders sidles up to the traditional enemies of this country. And Bernie Sanders is the most popular right now Democratic presidential candidate in the Democrat Party. It isn’t Joe Bite Me, and it isn’t Al Franken? And it isn’t Elizabeth Fauxcahontas Warren, and it’s not Kamala Harris. It is Bernie Sanders. And it is not even close. Bernie Sanders hands down.
This is why I think Donna Brazile is trying to sweep the Clintons off the stage to pave the way for Michelle Obama, because I think the parts of the Democrat Party that have just totally not gone over to full-fledged communism, these are the faux communists, and that would be the Obama era, the Obama crowd as popularized by Brazile. I think they believe that somebody like Michelle (My Belle) Obama is the only person that can stop Bernie Sanders.
Now, I imagine that there are many people listening to this right now, “Bernie Sanders, Rush, are you losing it? You’re crazy.” I’m not. When I ran across the stuff that made me realize this, I had the same reaction you’re having. Bernie Sanders, isn’t it over? Isn’t it been there, done that? No. I’ll give you an example. Don’t flinch at this, either.
Susan Sarandon. I know, Hollywood actress, brain-dead, all the other. Have you heard what she has been saying lately? She has been denigrating Hillary Clinton like we do. That it would have been a disaster if Hillary Clinton had been elected. We would be at war, and she went on to just trash Hillary and the Clintons and all this other stuff. Well, she voted for Jill Stein. She wasn’t a big fan of Barack Obama. But I think she would be part of the crowd that might say gravitate toward Michelle Obama.
Believe me, there is a segment — I don’t know how big it is, but it’s not small in the Democrat Party that wants an Obama back in, and they’re not they’re not particularly fond of Hillary, and they don’t want Bernie Sanders. The Democrat Party is — and you have trouble believing this because the Democrat Party is seen as the media, and the media seems in total control of what they’re doing, the media seems to survive every scandal that involves, like Charlie Rose, no big deal, people still watch CBS even though Charlie Rose worked there.
Charlie Rose is losing all of his honorary degrees. What a phony operation that is too. All these phony degrees handed out to these phony baloney, plastic banana, good-time rock ‘n’ rollers. To show how meaningful they are, look at what happens. They take ’em away at the first sign of trouble. So Charlie’s losing all of his honorary degrees, but the media just keeps on trucking. And the media creates an image and picture of the Democrat Party as solid, as unified, purposeful, not in any trouble whatsoever. That they are on the cusp of getting rid of Trump, they’re on the cusp of winning in 2018, the House and the Senate. They’re gonna take Congress back. Then they’re gonna win the White House in 2020.
If you have a steady diet of the Drive-By Media, that is the image that is projected that people are absorbing day in and day out. But the truth of the matter is the Democrat Party is in big trouble. They are continuing to lose elections, and even though they won a special election here — well, not the special. They won the Virginia governorship. That election is now being interpreted as the Democrats are back and the Democrats are loaded for bear, and the American people want the Democrats back, and the American people feel bad they didn’t elect the Democrats in 2016. The American people feel bad they’ve been voting against the Democrats since 2014.
One election now is being presented as people realize their mistake in voting for Trump, they realize their error in allowing the Russians to influence the election. The American people desperate to forget their mistake and desperate to wish and get the Democrat Party back. That’s the image that’s projected. But they’re in heap big doo-doo. And they remain in heap big doo-doo because the Democrat Party is actively positioned in such a way that you’re not out of bounds if you characterize much of what they’re doing and many of them as anti or untraditional American. And it’s been creeping this way.
RUSH: We go to Pie Hole, New Mexico. Great to have you on the program. Hello.
CALLER: That’s Pie Town, New Mexico, Rush.
RUSH: Oh, I’m sorry, Pie Town, New Mexico! This is Jay of Pie Town. I misread that up there.
CALLER: (laughing) Hey, you know, you made a couple of comments that I wanted to respond to. One, you were talking about Bernie being the number one front-runner for the Democrat Party for 2020. I think that’s absolutely spot on. You know, Bernie, I was always much more afraid of Bernie as a candidate against Donald Trump than I was Hillary Clinton.
CALLER: And I thank God for Hillary Clinton that she rigged the whole process in order to kick Bernie’s ass out of there.
RUSH: Well, why were you more afraid of Bernie?
CALLER: I think there’s a lot more stupid people out there that would go for Bernie just because — I mean, he had some fired up crowds.
RUSH: He did. Bernie’s supporters, they were energized and they were young people and they love the idea of socialism, communism. They’ve admitted it.
CALLER: Yeah. And the second thing, Rush, you made a real good point about how, you know, the young American males, old American males, you name it, are being attacked and discouraged from interacting with people of the opposite sex. That’s just females. That’s the only two genders that I recognize is male and female.
RUSH: No, no, you’re forgetting cisgender and — gosh, there’s all kinds of new ones, in fact. You may not know this, but there’s a new acronym out there, they’re all kinds of new isms. In fact, it’s now LGGBDTTIQQAPP. Instead of LGBT. I’ll explain what this is after the break. I’m glad you called. You brought up a good thing here.
