RUSH: Bill in Southampton in New York. Great to have you, sir. Welcome to the EIB Network.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. I think that the dinner, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and caravan at the border are two big wins for Donald Trump this weekend, especially in the court of public opinion. I just think that the optics are really working in his favor.
RUSH: Well, you know, a lot of people probably didn’t watch the White House Correspondents’ Dinner live because the Drive-Bys can’t stop showing highlights of it, everybody is seeing it. A lot of people are seeing it, plus we’re playing the audio here. I think you’re right. But I think one of the things, you know, the raunchiness, yeah, and Democrats standing up and cheering absolute filth, absolute rotgut sewage, standing up and cheering it. But that’s not the big deal.
The big deal is how they have — and it happens every year, but at some point there’s gonna be a tipping point. These people are demonstrating that they are not journalists. They’re left-wing extremist advocates by virtue of what they applaud and what they boo. A lot of people still think the media are a bunch of journalists that are telling the truth, that they’re objective, presenting both sides. Not after you watch this thing Saturday night, no way you would conclude that. Now, what about the caravan? What do you think about that?
CALLER: I just think that — look, the message is there’s a problem at our border, and I believe that that’s been believed for a long time by many of us. However, to see the people, the caravan, that whole continuing saga over the last couple of weeks, it really highlights that there is this major problem. Now, those people are coming for a different reason, but it indicates we have a border problem to those who may not watch it all that carefully. And understand that, you know, we have this open border —
RUSH: What do you mean, what do you mean, what do you mean, what do you mean these people are coming for a different reason?
CALLER: Well, they’re seeking asylum as opposed to those —
RUSH: So they say.
CALLER: So they say.
RUSH: It’s an American organization running the caravan. Did you know that?
CALLER: No, sir, I did not.
RUSH: Yes, sir, it is. It’s not some spontaneous bunch of people getting on a train in Honduras. It’s an American organization that runs this whole operation. I’ll get you the name of it here in due course. I had that last Friday and didn’t get to it. But all of this, like everything the left does, none of it’s spontaneous. It’s organized. It’s called community organizing. It’s Obamaism. Nothing spontaneous here. And they say they’re seeking asylum.
If you listen to one of the interviews, I’ve got a story here with one of the people here being interviewed. “U.S. Says Border Crossing Didn’t Have Room for Asylum Seekers,” is the story. It’s from the AP. “Wendi Yaneri Garcia said she was confident she will be released while her asylum case is pending because she is traveling alone with her 2-year-old son, who has been sick. She said that police in her hometown of Atlantida, Honduras, jailed her for protesting construction of a hydroelectric plant and that she received death threats after being released. ‘All I want is a place where I can work and raise my son,’ the 36-year-old said.”
Again, these organizers are all Americans, they all live in the U.S. And what this actually is — I mean, if you really want to know what this is — do you really want who know? Do you want me to tell you what? You need to think human trafficking if you want to understand what’s going on here. Because it is not spontaneously erupting.
What you are being asked to believe is that in Honduras — this is purposely done to separate these people from Mexico who are simply trying to climb the wall. No. These are different. These people wouldn’t be coming otherwise except for the war-torn status of their homelands. And they’re seeking political asylum. They’re seeking freedom. Just like this guy said. They’re coming for a different reason. They’re not coming for a different reason. They’re coming here to flood the country.
Angela Merkel, Trump praised her the other day, but I have to tell you, you know, Angela Merkel is all of a sudden concerned about rising anti-Semitism in Germany. After you have opened your borders to a million people from the Middle East, you are going to all of a sudden be concerned about the rising tide of anti-Semitism in your country? You just have to laugh about this. Bill, did you happen to watch Trump on Saturday night when he was at Washington Township, Michigan.
CALLER: He was incredible!
RUSH: He was incredible. Did you hear what he said about the caravan?
CALLER: I did indeed.
RUSH: He used one word to describe it. Do you remember what it was?
RUSH: It was great. It’s like Trump is just one of us. He said, “Folks, do you see the caravan? It’s pathetic. It’s pathetic what’s happening on the southern border.” The president of the United States is calling what’s going on pathetic. These caravan people are pathetic. And you could just see the steam rising out of the ear cavities of the American left who are trying to fool everybody into thinking this is some organic movement like protests in Ferguson were supposedly organic, all these leftist mobs supposedly organic. They’re not.
RUSH: Why would these American organizations want these poor people from Honduras to come to United States anyway, a bunch of racists, sexists, anti-immigrant, anti-gay, anti-lesbian, why would they want them to come here? And if they’re from Honduras, they already have asylum in Mexico. What, does Mexico treat them like a bunch of racists, too? I mean, none of this makes any sense, folks. None of it.
RUSH: Are you telling me Mexico’s a bunch of racist pigs that they will not grant these Honduras asylum. If they’re coming from Honduras — this is the law. Okay, so you’ve got a war-torn, strife area in Honduras, you want to flee. The minute these people get to Mexico, they have asylum. Why aren’t they stopping there? Why aren’t they stopping in Mexico?
Are you trying to tell me that they don’t want to stop in Mexico because Mexico’s a bunch of racists themselves? Does Mexico not have support systems, resources available? Why not stop in Mexico? Why keep going to get to the United States? Because getting these people to the United States for the express purpose of disrupting and demographically reorienting American culture is the express intent and purpose.
RUSH: This is Laura in Lynchburg, Virginia. Welcome. Great to have you here with us.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. How are you? I love you so much.
RUSH: Thank you very much. I appreciate that.
CALLER: I had to call in. On Friday your last caller went over a list of your favorite female names, and he wondered why Laura wasn’t on there. And you said you hadn’t received a call from a Laura, so I had to call in.
RUSH: Well, you know, I looked it up, and Laura was on the list. The caller was wrong about it. He had made a mistake, so have no fear, your name is in my all-time top ten favorite female names list.
CALLER: Oh, great. I wanted to talk about the caravan. You were saying it was a stunt, and I believe that. These illegals supposedly were coming to the border denouncing their country, yet when they got there they were raising their Honduran flag. So, one, I think it was a stunt to show Trump has no compassion for these people, and of course it’s for votes. However, I did hear that they allowed a few transgenders in, a couple of children, and some single moms.
RUSH: Well, I think that’s probably true, but when you say a stunt, it’s a stunt in the sense that an American organization is responsible for this. But it’s not a stunt in terms of the objective. The objective is to flood this country with people who have no desire to assimilate and become — well, for lack of a better way of putting it — part of the American culture. And this is the stunt. I mean, if you want to call it a stunt.
The political objective is to dilute, to weaken, water down the culture of the United States that stems from our founding. That’s all this is, illegal immigration, the caravan of people seeking political asylum. People really are seeking political asylum, by the way. There are people that do this by virtue of the law, following the law, playing by the rules and this kind of thing.
But waving the Honduran flag is kind of a giveaway. If you’re fleeing Honduras because it’s so oppressive, you can’t stand living there anymore, you don’t think your kids can stay alive, then what the hell are you doing waving the Honduran flag? I think part of it is to show Trump is a heartless SOB and all that. But the much larger objective is done in coordination with the Democrat Party.
I was thinking the other day, looking for ways of explaining the difference in the Democrat Party today and 30 years ago. And I don’t know what made me think of it. It was something that was happening that I said I can make a point of this. I don’t remember what the catalyst that ignited my thought process in this. But do you remember the 1968 Democrat convention in Chicago?
I mean, the sixties leftist radicals tore Chicago up. And they ruined the prospects of the Democrat Party’s presidential race that year, Hubert Humphrey. They just destroyed — and I’m talking about the Tom Haydens and the Abbie Hoffmans and all of these clowns, the sixties radicals were protesting the Democrat Party. They protested the Republicans as well, but they specifically went to on Chicago during the Democrat National Convention. Mayor Daley had to call the cops on ’em. It was a full-fledged, 100 percent riot for days. And it just destroyed.
That would not happen today. The reason is that those radicals that were protesting the Democrat Party in the sixties have become the Democrat today! They are and their kids are the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party has become the home of real, radical, extreme leftists. And what’s amazing about that to me is how many rank-and-file, quote, unquote, American citizens have bought into it hook, line, and sinker.
The Democrat Party has undergone one of the greatest, at the same time silent revolutions, that we have seen in American politics. ‘Cause the Democrat Party today, it may have figureheads like Chuck You Schumer and Dick Durbin and these guys that make you think of the standard old Democrats and the image of Robert Strauss, Texan guy who used to run the party.
Some of those guys from the sixties and seventies were Democrats, but they were not communists. They were not radical leftists, but the radical left communist extremists had the Democrat Party as their home, and when the Democrat Party wasn’t playing ball, wasn’t far left enough, then they raised hell with it, such as in Chicago.
Well, those people have become the Democrat Party today, and it’s a massive transformation. And they have swept so many, what you would just consider to be rank-and-file average, ordinary American Democrats are now full-fledged radical extreme leftist nuts. And it just seems to all have happened under the radar. And when I first became really aware was after Obama was elected, the party seemed all of a sudden just overnight to become dominated by radical left extremists. When Bush was in office for those eight years, they were there, yeah, and they were making noise, yeah, but it was obvious they were in the minority. Growing, but obvious minority.
When Obama’s elected and then immaculated, it was made to look like all of a sudden the country had had this massive transformation to the left via the common, ordinary, average American Democrat living anywhere in the country, not as identified by liberal leaders elected and in certain positions of government in Washington.
Anyway, let me take one more call before we have to be go to the break. It’s Martin in Gainesville, Florida. Great to have you. Hi.
CALLER: Thanks for taking my call, Rush. I have two questions regarding this illegal immigrant caravan. First, if Mexico granted them asylum, which they must have done to allow those people to enter their nation on that caravan train that came from Honduras —
CALLER: Then they are no longer in danger and therefore, on our end, there is no reason to grant them asylum given that they are no longer in danger.
RUSH: Exactly. Once they get to Mexico we’ve got their asylum.
CALLER: So we could tack that on and say, “Listen, Mexico, you don’t want to play ball, if you let them in and give them asylum, then we will not allow that to happen on our end and if you don’t —
RUSH: But wait —
CALLER: — give them asylum, they should not come in.
RUSH: Even before you get there, if these people are seeking asylum, if they are genuinely escaping an unspeakable horror and tyranny, when they get to Mexico why don’t they stop and breathe a sigh of relief and say, “We’ve made it?”
RUSH: They’ve got their asylum once they get to Mexico. What is it about Mexico they don’t want to stay?
CALLER: Right. My second question is this. It’s hard to imagine that in the political and financial chaos of Mexico that any lawyer would do pro bono work. Who’s paying those attorneys to advise those people when they come in?
RUSH: They’re Americans.
CALLER: Golly. That’s just not right, sir.
RUSH: I promised to find the name of the group, and I haven’t had a chance to. But the name of the group of people that’s actually running this caravan is known, and they’re all Americans. This is an American organization running this, organizing it. There’s nothing spontaneous about it.
RUSH: The name of the American company or organization in charge of the caravan is Pueblo Sin Fronteras led by a guy named Alex Mensing, a radical socialist. He’s an American. Pueblo Sin Fronteras.
