RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m still maintaining my Stack of Stuff here chronicling the descent into madness and insanity of the American left and their outfits, their political brethren in the Democrat Party. I’ve kept some stuff over from previous programs, I didn’t have a chance to get into in a whole lot of detail. But here’s one. And this is from the Miami Herald. The headline: “Loyal Democrat Donors: We Are Done With the DNC ‘Until They Get Their Act Together.‘”
Let’s see what this is about. “While Democratic donors have eagerly opened their wallets ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, helping Democratic candidates and groups largely outraise their Republican counterparts –” By the way, that’s not what I’ve seen. I’ve seen the RNC has been raking in money at a record clip. But, you know, I don’t know which of these stories to believe, ’cause I see — like this one says the Democrats are outraising the Republicans. I saw one earlier this week that the RNC is raising money like they’ve never seen before. I don’t really know what the truth is.
But the purpose of this story is that some rank-and-file Democrats have gotten fed up with what is becoming of the Democrat Party. “While Democratic donors have eagerly opened their wallets ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, helping Democratic candidates and groups largely outraise their Republican counterparts, one notable exception has stood out: The Democratic National Committee — the party’s signature organization — has posted its worst midterm fund raising totals in more than a decade.”
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait just a moment. How can this be with all of this enthusiasm and all of these Democrat voters who simply can’t wait to get out there and vote and they’re putting their money where their mouth is. Wait a minute. The Democratic National Committee has posted its worst midterm fund raising totals in more than 10 years.
“By contrast, the Republican National Committee has nearly doubled the DNC’s haul this cycle.” The Republicans have brought in $227 million. The Democrats have brought in $116 million. “Helen Schafer, a retired teacher in Fresno, Calif., who had given $7,000 to the DNC over the past five election cycles, said she lost faith in the committee after 2016.”
So she’s giving money to liberal groups, but she’s not giving it to the DNC. And there’s a number of reasons for it. Some of these people that have given to the DNC are no longer because they don’t like how far left the DNC is going and others are unhappy it’s not going far left enough.
But here’s the point I want to put on the table. If you listen to the Drive-By Media, if you watch them every day, you think that the Republican Party — it’s always the case, by the way. The Republican Party is always falling apart. The Republican Party is driven and riven by internal conflicts, and it’s in bad, bad shape. The Democrats are, likewise, presented as unified, singular purposed, and ready and loaded for bear.
And I’m here to tell you that that is not the case. The Democrat Party is being pulled and torn apart in I can’t tell you how many directions and how many ways, and it’s largely because of this new craving of socialism that some of the young ones have, and this constant demanding for talking about impeachment. The bottom line is, folks, the Democrat Party is not this unified force that’s unsurmountable and unbeatable. Not even close.
RUSH: What is it like to get your period when you’re not a woman? Well, you would think it’s impossible. This is a story in the Huffing and Puffington Post in a story demanding menstrual equity. The Huffing and Puffington Post says: “What It’s Like To Get Your Period When You’re Not A Woman.”
This week a guest writer for the Huffing and Puffington Post, Cass Bliss, who obviously isn’t, details what it’s like to get your period when you’re not a woman. Cass Bliss, who obviously isn’t, is a nonbinary trans educator. We’re talking about one-tenth of 1% of the population here, right? You notice how mainstream it’s become on the left. Cass Bliss, a nonbinary trans educator. I was just gonna ask if anybody over there on the other side of the glass knows what a nonbinary trans educator is.
Well, trans is transgender. Nonbinary means you don’t go both ways. So a nonbinary trans educator — well, if we’re talking about menstrual equity, we have to be talking about the front hole, right? Which we also learned about earlier this week. The lower front hole as opposed to the upper front hole. Not to be confused with the rear hole or the front stick, which we also learned about this week. We’re now expanding our horizons and broadening our minds when it comes to transgenderism.
Anyway, this story, what it’s like to get your period when you’re not a woman, went viral. She’s even got a hashtag. Are you ready for this? #bleedingwhiletrans. “The #BleedingWhileTrans campaign in 2017 to prove the biologically impossible claim that ‘men have periods, too.’ The activist recently created a music video discussing the struggles of having your period while not identifying as a woman in a quest for ‘menstrual equity’ for all.”
You know, I remember — I hope some of you remember this — way back in the nineties talking about militant homosexuality. I warned people that with homosexuality, one of the biggest problems was going to be procreation. I said, as part of gay marriage, you watch, somebody is going to try to invent something like an artificial womb. I’m joking about it, and look! We are headed in that direction!
So we have here a serious story. I mean, you may be sitting out there laughing, but I’m telling you that there is a sizable bloc of people reading this who think it’s real, that menstrual equity is a serious civil rights issue. It’s either unfair or unjust that only certain Americans have a menstrual cycle. It’s not fair; it’s not right. But what this is really about is when men have periods too.
In other words, “The #BleedingWhileTrans campaign in 2017 to prove the biologically impossible claim that ‘men have periods, too.’ [She] created a music video discussing the struggles of having your period while not identifying as a woman.” Identifying means “thinking of yourself as.” So when you’re not thinking of yourself as a woman, but you are — look, that’s the bottom line, you are a woman, but you’re not identifying. And then you have a period. It’s oh-so-confusing and disorienting and unfair!
You see yourself as not a woman, and yet you’re still having a period. We’ve got to do something about this injustice. So we have to come up with menstrual equity. It may not be all bad, guys. It may be, if this ever happens, it may end up granting you permission to be bitchy one week a month. Who knows. Am I gonna get grief for stereotypical humor? Well, I’m sorry. Just sharing my reactions as we all learn about this together.
“For example, the colors of tampon boxes are pink and there are no discrete garbage cans in men’s bathroom stalls to dispose of tampons and pads.” Again, another outward sign of the injustice and the discrimination of our patriarchal cis culture. And things can’t be right until men have periods as well and until there are tampon boxes in discrete garbage cans in men’s room at the gas station.
Cass Bliss says, “I am a nonbinary trans menstruator.” This woman’s probably teaching somebody’s kids. We’re taking — I gotta be very, very careful here. But let me just quote. It may be all I need to do is to quote here. Again from Cass Bliss, who obviously isn’t, “I am a nonbinary trans menstruator — someone with a uterus that bleeds monthly, but who identifies outside of the fixed categories of male and female.”
See, nonbinary actually means you’re neither. You’re not man or woman. You’re just “it.” That’s what nonbinary means. You’re not man or woman. She has a uterus that bleeds monthly, but she neither identifies as man or woman. This isn’t fair, you see, “Because of that,” she says, “I have to navigate the challenges of getting my period every month in a world that refuses to acknowledge that not everyone who gets their period is a woman, and not every woman gets their period.”
No. I’m sorry, folks. If you get a period, you are a woman. The same could be said if you don’t have a Y chromosome. It’s settled science! It’s not what you think! It’s not how you identify, and it’s not how you present! If you have a period, you are a woman. Now, it may be unfair, but you gotta take it up with somebody you may not believe in.
(interruption) No kidding? University of Wisconsin Madison, they have pink tampon disposal boxes in the men’s restrooms, University of Madison? Okay, well, then she can go there. There is someplace progressive enough to recognize that men can have periods and use tampons in the men’s room. (interruption) Exactly, real men cannot have periods, exactly right. Real men cannot have periods, and only real women can.
Now, do you realize how I just stepped in it by just using the word “real” there? Do you realize how now I am gonna become the focus of anger and rage among people in this community? But you’re right, real men cannot get a period. Real men cannot get pregnant. Real men don’t have a uterus or a womb. And I have just become one of the most controversial figures in American pop culture by making those statements in such absolute form. But Mr. Snerdley was getting confused, and I had to set him straight. There’s enough confusion out there without this kind of thing adding to it.
And now moving on, ladies and gentlemen. Miami Hurricane football team, I mentioned this earlier, but I didn’t get into the details. We’re into the Stack here that demonstrates the descent to madness and insanity of the American left. Miami Hurricanes. Now, this football team, traditionally, this football team has been so good and so tough that many think that it could have beaten the Cleveland Browns the last two years. It was that good.
The arrest records rival anything in the Cincinnati Bengal organization. These guys are not to mess with, the Miami Hurricanes. But they have now had a significant uniform change in the upcoming season. They’re gonna wear eco-friendly uniforms made from ocean garbage.
The University of Miami has announced that the Hurricanes are gonna announce the team will wear eco-friendly uniforms and cleats made from garbage culled from the ocean. The jerseys made from ocean garbage will be made by Adidas. A specially made version of the Adidas Parley A1 uniform will be made of 70% yarn, Econyl yarn, E-c-o-n-y-l, Econyl yarn created from reclaiming fishing nets and other nylon materials removed from the ocean, according to USA Today.
The uniform jersey will be made in the team’s traditional orange color, but they’ll reportedly be accents that serve as an ode to the cause to end plastic pollution of the oceans. Why don’t they just change the logo to a straw? Instead of the Hurricanes, change it to the University of Miami Straws, if you really want to call attention to something here.
Miami coach Mark Richt said that the Miami Hurricanes are pleased to help promote sustainability around the world. The Hurricanes are gonna wear the new ocean friendly uniforms made of ocean garbage at the season opener against LSU in Arlington, Texas — that would be at the Cowboys stadium, AT&T Park — on September the 8th.
RUSH: Audio sound bites. We’re gonna start here at number 2. This is just funny. It’s not related to anything. C-SPAN’s Washington Journal today during a segment with — I guess they were talking about presidential polling. They had a caller from Texas by the name of Thomas.
THOMAS: When Obama became president, you know that it’s gonna be a Republican. All you have to do is go put on AM radio and listen to Rush Limbaugh and the rest of ’em. I won $500 against a Cruz supporter, I said, “Trump’s gonna be president.” “Oh, man, no, no, no, no.”
GRETA BRAWNER: Are you saying that because we had a Democrat, because we had President Obama, the pendulum was naturally going to swing?
THOMAS: Of course, if you listen to Rush Limbaugh. I mean, from the birther case to Rush Limbaugh and — (unintelligible) — FCC fairness law out, I was kinda actually thinking, well, you know, Hillary’s a criminal, it started way long before that!
RUSH: This guy, the point of this is as soon as Trump ran, this guy knew that he was gonna be elected because I was gonna support him. Yeah, Trump’s gonna be Trump, need to listen to Rush Limbaugh, and he says Fairness Doctrine and so forth. It shows I’m living in their heads rent free out there and how they associate everything that happens that they don’t like with me.
