RUSH: This is Doreen in St. Georgia, Utah. Hi.
RUSH: Hello. How are you?
CALLER: Hi. Hi. I am such a fan of you, Rush, and I love watching your show, and I’m 35 years old, and I still remember my mom driving me to preschool or kindergarten, I can’t remember which one it was, and your show coming on and it’s like that classic, da-da-da-da-da-da-da, da-da-da. Anyway I love that song and I love you, and you’re my favorite habit.
RUSH: I’m a habit. I’m a habit. Wow.
RUSH: How about that?
CALLER: And I feel like you’re my political compass too. Anyway, I just loving watching — or listening to you and reading up on things when I do miss a show. But, anyway, I also want to let you know I’ve been fasting and praying for you and hoping that your cancer treatments have been going well.
But, anyway, so last Friday you had several callers come on talking about how there was gonna be some rising up of Trump — or they thought that Trump voters were gonna be rising up. And you said that you just didn’t see that happening. And I think I can explain why you’re not seeing that rising up yet. And I feel like it’s because the election isn’t certified yet. And so I feel like people are still patiently waiting for, like, the truth to come out.
And by patiently waiting, I mean, like we’re praying and daily and hourly, I feel like I’ve been praying more than I have for my country in a really long time. And posting to Facebook about the fraud that we see happening on like a daily basis, things that keep popping up about stories that people are telling and also people like going to the stop the steal rallies —
RUSH: Well, let me jump in here because I’ll tell you I do hear from a lot of people who echo some of what you’re saying. You’re saying, well, it hasn’t been certified yet and we’re waiting for the magic bullet, or we’re waiting for this or that before we get into gear. I can’t tell you — I wish I could give you a number — the number of people who tell me, “Rush, the reason why you’re not seeing it is ’cause we know Trump’s got a master plan. Trump is four to five steps ahead of everybody here, Rush. And Trump is gonna unleash the magic bullet at the right time. He’s just setting these people up. There’s gonna be a gigantic sting. Trump is running that sting on ’em right now, Rush. You wait. It’s gonna eventually happen. Trump is gonna unleash what he’s got, gonna embarrass all these people. The victory will be his.”
There are more people than I can count who believe that. Now, if you think that that’s the reason why people are standing mute and not getting into gear — actually, there are some people — now, I don’t know if they may be Trump voters or not, but let me tell you something. Some of these people out in California — this is unprecedented — we got these governors — well, the governor — and a bunch of mayors who are genuinely infringing on people’s rights, such as restaurant owners and the governor is going out and defying his own edict, the mayor is defying his own edict, they’re eating in public, they’re going to restaurants in public, they’re doing everything they’re telling citizens they can’t do.
They are rewarding restaurants and punishing others. And some of these restaurant owners who are being punished have stood up and are starting to protest it. I don’t know whether they’re Trump voters or not, but there are people that are starting to stand up and be heard about things that they consider to be unfair and undemocratic and all that. So there are pockets of this beginning to happen.
Folks, if you weren’t here Friday, what she’s talking about is that I had a lot of people calling that day talking about how fired up Trump people were, not gonna put up with this. I said, where is this? I said, where is all this fired up behavior? Where is all this massive support that’s not gonna put up with it? “Well, Rush, they’re out there. You just wait and see.” So she’s calling to explain that they’re waiting on the election to be certified; they’re waiting for prayers to take hold.
And that’s why I said I’ve got people thinking Trump’s running a sting. “He doesn’t need this, Rush. He doesn’t need this. He’s always three to four steps ahead of these people. You wait. This is gonna be one of the most massive setup jobs you’ve ever seen.” Now, I don’t know how many people, it’s too big for me to count, the numbers of people contacting me or emailing me about this. But I didn’t mean to offend anybody on Friday. I’m just saying, all this massive support, where is it?
My problem is, the left takes to the street when anything happens that they oppose, and they intimidate and they bully and they get things changed. And we don’t do that. And I’ve been often asking, is it ’cause there aren’t enough of us to matter and are we really overwhelmed in numbers now? Have we crossed that 50% threshold and I haven’t noticed it? Are we truly the minority? I know a lot of people think we are. I mean, people on our side, Trump voters who think that we are. At any rate, I’m glad you called out there, Doreen.
RUSH: By the way, folks, according to the Washington Post, they are protesting in Michigan, armed protesters alleging voter fraud have surrounded the home of Michigan’s secretary of state. Her name is Jocelyn Benson. Her home is surrounded.
She had, “Just finished wrapping string lights around her home’s portico on Saturday evening and was about to watch ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ with her 4-year-old son when a crowd of protesters marched up carrying American flags and guns. About two dozen protesters chanted ‘Stop the Steal’ and accused,” her, she’s a Democrat, “of ignoring widespread voter fraud,” and so forth.
“She’s decided to completely ignore all of the credible, fraudulent evidence that has been continually pointed out,” demonstrator Genevieve Peters said of Benson. She live-streamed the protest in Detroit on Facebook. So there is evidence of some protests taking place out there.
RUSH: Here’s Marvin in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Marvin, I’m glad you waited. Welcome to our program. Hi.
CALLER: Thank you, Mr. Limbaugh. And I truly appreciate you accepting my call. It’s an honor to be on your show.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: And I’m also praying for you, continue to pray for a miracle and that your health will continue to grow and get better.
RUSH: I appreciate that very much.
CALLER: Okay. So here’s my situation. I am one frustrated person when it comes to all of this information that we receive. We get a lot, but I listen to your show, and you continually make comments that appear reasonable that there’s obvious evidence that there’s been fraud and that Trump was ripped off in this election. If that is so dadgum true, why is it that we’re having such a difficult time in making things change?
I mean, if it’s so obvious and so evident that it’s out there, then why are all the courts dropping it? And I probably understand the answer to this question, but it’s really extremely frustrating. And on top of that, then we’re supposed to go to Georgia, for those who live in Georgia, we’re supposed to vote, trust the system, vote for these two Republicans and hopefully get them into the system —
RUSH: Yeah, I know.
CALLER: — so we don’t lose the majority.
RUSH: I know.
CALLER: It’s extremely frustrating.
RUSH: Well, let me attempt to answer your questions. In the first place, you’ve gotta accept the fact that we have now a — what’s the word? I get fatigued here in the third hour. My mind drops off about 20% in the third hour here. We have a connection – it’s not the word I’m looking for — but Big Tech and massive American corporations are now in league with the Democrat Party. And they have the singular objective of censoring us, censoring their opposition, which would be Trump supporters, the Make America Great Again agenda people. Not so much the mainstream Republican Party because they do what they’re supposed to do and they make no trouble for the Democrats. So that’s the first thing.
The second thing, I really need to tell you, based on something I heard you say, I will never make things up and pass them on to you for the purposes of making a point, for the purposes of persuading you in an attempt to get all of you riled up. I mean, that’s not even an objective of mine. Now, I know full well how all this sounds. And I’m very aware that it creates questions and curiosity. I would never make this stuff up.
Now, if I’m wrong about it, and if I learn that I’m wrong about it somewhere down the road, then I will make it as clear as I can as soon as I learn about it, even if I learn about it prior to the program one day. I can alert you on my website, the Twitter account that we’ve got rolling, any number of ways. But how can all this happen with all this fraud, despite everybody being aware of it?
The left controls a number of courts. Not as many as they used to because of Trump’s three years of appointing judges. But — I don’t know. It’s a tough thing to answer in a few short seconds here. Let me see if I can come up with a way to give you an answer that simplifies the complexity here that will be satisfactory. We’ll do it after the break. Don’t go away, folks.
RUSH: Look. I understand the question. “If it’s this obvious, if there’s this amount of fraud, why aren’t Republican officials in Georgia acknowledging it, Rush? Why aren’t the courts acknowledging it?” Well, I could ask you. Why are so many offended by Make America Great Again? That doesn’t compute with me. Why are so many people bothered by that, Make America Great, who wouldn’t want America to be great again?
Well, I mean I can answer it. If you’re a high school student the last four years and you’ve been taught that America’s nothing but a racist slave state and has everything it has because it promoted and used slavery, and you are white and you are guilty, you did it, your ancestors did it, they were slave owners, and you, therefore, have gotta get rid of your white privilege, and you, and you are responsible for it. You gotta end up hating the country. So they dutifully end up following orders and hate America and accept the idea that whatever happened bad in this country is the fault of white people.
You know, why do so many people vote Democrat after seeing Democrats destroy their own cities? Democrats promote looting. They promote defunding the cops. They stand idly by while protest groups — Black Lives Matter and Antifa — burn down private property and then loot private property and then destroy it in other ways. Why do people still vote for Democrats after watching — then you have to realize they didn’t see it. And if they did see the riots, they weren’t told who was responsible for it.
I could ask this question about any number of things happening. Why do the American people not hold Democrats accountable or why do courts not hold the fraudsters accountable and so forth. It’s one of the great mysteries. And it’s one of the great frustrating things. ‘Cause I can remember a day when — we’re a Western civilization country. And I remember a day when these kinds of outrages outraged a vast majority of people to the point they demanded that whoever was perpetrating all of these injustices were dealt with.
Whenever the common and accepted morality of the country was violated, particularly in an extreme way, people stood up and demanded that whoever the perps were were dealt with. But now for the last 25 years that hasn’t been a national morality, and you haven’t been allowed to write one, you haven’t been allowed to have one. You don’t have the right, you don’t have permission to determine — morality’s an individual voice. You don’t get to say what morality is. Yeah, we did for the longest time. It was part of the great American traditional value system that set us apart.
But I think the real answer to this, we don’t have a media anymore. There isn’t any news. This is a classic example of what I mean. There’s no news. All of this fraud, it’s legit. It’s real. The media debunks it. The media joins forces with Big Tech and the Democrat Party to mock and make fun of the people who are producing the data. To journalism, it’s not a scandal if the media doesn’t report it. Look at the coup. Look at the four-year effort to unseat Donald Trump and overturn the election results 2016. It didn’t happen. There is nothing to see here.
We don’t have a media, folks. We don’t have a media that reports the news. And this is another example of how ignoring news is just as crucial as presenting a bunch of bogus news. I mean, I don’t think it’s any more complicated than that. So many people are conditioned to accept whatever they see on TV as truthful and objective no matter what, this is what people think. We still have to put up with this. And the media still has that power that many of us on the right think that we have cut into, that we have made inroads against.
But in truth and on balance they still have an incredible amount of power and ability to bury things by not reporting them, which is exactly how this fraud’s being dealt with. In fact, it’s even worse than that. They’re not just ignoring it. They’re making fun of it. They’re mocking it. They’re making jokes out of anybody who seems to believe in it. And they’ve got partners — the Chinese — and they’ve got Big Tech — Silicon Valley — that are all aligned with the Democrat Party, which is essentially government and Washington, D.C.
So it really is no more complicated than that. You can get into more detail if you want by pointing out why do people not believe what they see, why do people reject what they see, like my question about why do people still vote for Democrats after watching Democrats burn down cities. Well, they don’t know that Democrats are burning down cities. That video of those cities burning — Portland, Seattle — that video never showed up on mainstream cable news or ABC, CBS, NBC, nobody who watches those things exclusively saw any of that happen.
RUSH: Richmond, Virginia, Chuck great to have you. Hi.
CALLER: Hi. Hi, Rush. It’s an honor to talk to you. I want to know our prayers are with you.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: And if you could step outside, I think you would hear the echoes of millions of us saying, we love you, we love you.
RUSH: Thank you, I appreciate that very much.
CALLER: And I just want to let you know that I just don’t doubt the American people at all. I think the election of 2016 and the election in 2020 told us how we feel. Eleven million more votes for Trump and probably more than that. We know for sure that he won that election. It was a complete fraud. And I’m gonna remain optimistic until I can’t anymore. But if this fake president-elect becomes the fake president, that means we have a complete failure of all our institutions: our courts, our FBI, our justice system, our media, our high-tech communication systems. It’s a complete failure of all those systems.
RUSH: That’s a great way to wrap it up.
