RUSH: Now, this other email question I got, it’s not the only time. But I got another one today. I have several of these over the course of months, weeks. And they go something along the lines of “I’m seeing so much news about transgenderism. Are there that many transgenders in America, Rush?” Well, the answer is no. I mean, statistically, factually, equivocally, no.
Any group of people, any victim group of people opposing America, is going to be get fawning treatment from the media. When it comes to transgenderism, I actually think that much of it is almost like a fad for young people. The media portrays it as cool. The media portrays transgenderism as a hip, young demographic political issue as well as lifestyle issue.
So it’s a way to call attention to yourself. It’s a way to tick off your parents. It’s built in. I just think a lot of it is just young people engaging in a fad or what have you. And, no, I’m not trying to be critical of fellow human beings. I’m simply answering questions that people pose to me here.
