RUSH: Steve in Sacramento, my adopted hometown. It’s great to have you here, sir. Hello.

CALLER: Good day. By the way, thank you for your efforts with this Cure-A-Thon.

RUSH: I appreciate that, sir.

CALLER: In fact, it’s a perfect model for the disease we see in our country. And that is, some of the funds, as you know, of course you’re right in the middle of it, go to alleviating symptoms, and some of the funds also go in the treatment phase for adult bone marrow transplant.

RUSH: Right.

CALLER: But there’s also more and more of the funds that are going into prevention, okay? More and more, as they’re learning more in the area of cell research and that kind of thing.

RUSH: That’s —

CALLER: Now, come back to the country, our country.

RUSH: That’s an important point, too.

CALLER: So can I frame that, then —

RUSH: Yeah!

CALLER: — with Lincoln’s statement, and that is, as you know, ‘The philosophy of the classroom in one generation becomes the philosophy of the government in the next.’ Now, what we see in the government is a disease, is a cancer. But we see more and more of the electorate that’s also got the cancer. Now, we commonly complain about our public education system — which I am now officially renaming our ‘public mis-education system’ — and if we don’t put more of our focus, refocus more of our energy on time and effort to completely refurbish that public education system — starting, of course, it’s the curriculum which is mush. But the administrators have minds of mush, and what do we expect our kids are going to have? They’re going to have the minds of mush that you’re talking about all the time. We almost think that it’s hopeless to do this, but it’s not, because we are paying the bill for it. We are paying 100 percent of the bill for it! So if we don’t refocus our energies off the symptoms of the disease and back on to the root cause of it and to prevent it for the future generations, it ain’t going to happen, Rush. We’re not going to cure this disease.

RUSH: There’s no question our society is in the process of being dumbed down and has for many generations. The hideous thing is that it’s done purposely.

CALLER: Of course it is. We know that. It started way back in the early last century, and we know who did it. Most people don’t want to take the time to hear about it, but it’s real. I was even part of the conspiracy myself as an educator and as a former staunch atheist, humanist and evolutionary biologist. I was part of it. I know what’s going on behind the scenes. Nobody wants to hear about it.

RUSH: Okay. Well, wait a second. What saved you?

CALLER: (chuckling) Who can save anybody?

RUSH: Well, no, but —

CALLER: You know who saved me. There’s only one person and that’s the ultimate truth. The person that saved me got my head and straightened it out, was when I started reading the scripture and realized how brilliant it was. But that’s way before I came to God.

RUSH: But, wait. The people you’re talking about say the scripture is a recipe of socialism.

CALLER: Of course they’re going to say that. That’s what I said all those years. That’s part of the battle! The point is: What is truth? If we say we’re truth-seekers we can’t use misinformation to bring people to some so-called truth because that’s not a genuine truth-seeker. And here’s the deal. We have to refocus all of our time, and effort and resources on completely refurbishing the entire public mis-education system. If we do not, we are wasting our time for the future. That’s it! You’ve talked about it a lot, but if we don’t refocus and take care of it, because every single administrator in all the curricula are all with mush.

RUSH: I know. I hear about it

CALLER: And we cannot expect to cure the disease without taking care of that. We cannot do it. It won’t work.

RUSH: I’ll give you a story, tell you a little story. I know someone who has high school-aged children in the school district. This person tells me some of the most outrageous things. I’m going to tell you one story.

CALLER: Before you do that —

RUSH: Yeah?

CALLER: I was involved in the conspiracy. If your producer wants to get back to me…. Look it, my life has been threatened just to bring this stuff out. If you want to get back to me I can at least feed you some more information as we go forward.

RUSH: We’ll get your number before you go, but I want you to listen to this.

CALLER: Fine, fine. Go ahead.

RUSH: This teacher was teaching ostensibly a history class, and used the class each and every day to proselytize extreme liberal politics.

CALLER: Exactly.

RUSH: What she said in this class was no different than what you would see on MSNBC or CNN or read the New York Times. It contained every cliche, mischaracterization and character assassination of conservatives. This woman, this teacher was giving tests to students after she had given them the answers. There was no history taught in this class. It was pure current event, current-day, present-day politics.

CALLER: That’s how it’s done.

RUSH: She gave them the tests so that the administrator would think her history class was going well and that her class was learning history — and if you’re a kid and you’re a junior in high school, who wouldn’t want that? I mean, the kids are not going to stand up and oppose this. Now, a couple kids tell their parents about it. That’s how I found out about it. But the parents didn’t want this mentioned publicly because they were afraid of maybe some bad things happening to their kids in the school.

CALLER: That’s right.

RUSH: So they want to try to deal with it at the PTA level or talking to the principal. But that’s often ineffective.

CALLER: Part of the whole strategy is intimidation. That’s part of it.

RUSH: Exactly right.

CALLER: But it starts with misinformation and you need to know some stuff. What’s going on, it’s been going on for a couple of decades most people don’t know about it. You need to know it.

RUSH: We hear about it. We hear about it. I’ve got students. In fact, we’ve had a ration of students calling here in the last month or so at the high school and college level describing things, for example, about me in their textbooks. We know what’s going on out there, and it is a problem. It’s not only mis-education, it is un-education. A lot of kids are simply being dumbed down and they certainly aren’t being taught the facts and the truth of the founding of this country, and they’re not taught about American exceptionalism. They’re taught to think Obama’s brilliant when he runs around apologizing for the country. Seventeen- and eighteen-year-olds thinking their country needs to be apologized for? For what reason? Not that they’re old enough to know. They just haven’t lived long enough. Anyway, I appreciate the call, Steve. Thanks very much.
