RUSH: Jeremy in Annapolis, Maryland, glad you waited, sir. Welcome to the EIB Network.
CALLER: Hey, Rush, mega dittos. It’s an honor to speak with you.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: My comment had to do with Survivor and how they decided to end their ethnic experiments.
RUSH: Yeah, after two episodes, the segregation is over.
CALLER: I know. Well, and after you led the show with it, I read the AP story that was linked on Drudge, and when I got about four paragraphs in, I had to laugh because AP found a way to get political with the story, and they found a way to comment on, I guess, acceptable forms of torture. Four paragraphs in, the story says, ‘The two new tribes competed in a grueling challenge that seems better designed to get prisoners of war to talk.’
RUSH: I saw that, got it here, yeah.
CALLER: Yeah. ‘Each person strapped on a 15-pound wait, trudged through knee-deep water’ and all this stuff. And I just found it laughable that the liberal — you know, the bias was so pervasive that you can’t even read a story about Survivor without —
CALLER: — having to talk about torture.
RUSH: Yeah, there’s torture, CBS engaging in torture on their show Survivor! Look it, people are saying, ‘What? This only lasted two weeks. Two weeks, and they end the segregation, put everybody in this…’ Let me get the phrase for that, too. I already put the story back in the stack, but it’s just right here. What did they say? Because, ‘After only two episodes producers merged the black, white, Asian, and Latino tribes into two mixed-race gangs.’
RUSH: Now, when you hear the word ‘gang,’ what do you think of?
CALLER: Well, it isn’t good.
RUSH: Well, yeah, it’s not good. You know, “gang” is —
CALLER: It has a negative connotation to it, yeah.
RUSH: It has a negative connotation to it. Here’s the thing. After only two episodes now, how long ago were the episodes — except for the finale — of this season’s Survivor shot?
CALLER: Had to be a long time ago.
RUSH: Months ago! Months ago. So when CBS is on the air promoting their racial segregation, they knew that it was only going to survive for two weeks.
RUSH: And they didn’t say that. “Just wait and see how it unfolds! They haven’t seen the show and they’re complaining.” They could have said, “Hey, it’s only going to last two weeks,” and why did they have to break ’em up so soon do you think, Jeremy?
CALLER: You know, I’m not sure. I think it was just to get the —
RUSH: Come on, Jeremy! Don’t go gutless on me here. Tell me why they broke up the groups, the ethnic groups by race so soon.
CALLER: I think it’s because they were caving to their liberal base.
RUSH: Nope. No. No. Because there was no liberal complaining going on by then. Nobody knew what was going on when this show was being shot. This is months ago after only two episodes. Something had to happen to make ’em think this doesn’t have a season’s worth of competitive value in it. It had to be that some of the teams were so bad and so pathetic that if they let it continue, they would have problems if they kept it segregated, which tells me (Laughing.) the white tribe was winning big.
CALLER: (Laughing.) Anyway, I thought it was an interesting point about the torture as well.
RUSH: Yeah. My staff’s rolling their eyes saying, “You didn’t say that! Oh, no! Do you realize how they’re going to take you out of context?” Screw ’em if they can’t take a joke. This whole discussion, this whole show has been about parroting and satirizing all this liberal political correctness — and I’m just taking it to its local end conclusion, either that or the Asians were winning, but it’s who is losing, folks.
You know it! You know, these are liberals that do this. Jeremy, I’m glad you called.
