RUSH: Brittany in Temecula, California. She’s 20 years old. It’s great to have you with us.

CALLER: Thank you. Hi.


CALLER: Like my dad says, Rush: I agree with you 1% of the time and the other 99 you agree with me.

RUSH: Thank you.

CALLER: So dittos from sunny California.

RUSH: Thank you.

CALLER: You are welcome. So I wanted to share with you a little story. Every night my 15-year-old sister and I — and I am 20 — spend two, maybe one, two hours talking about current events, news, and yesterday was angry teenagers. And she expressed to me that in high school, you meet a lot of angry teenagers. And they attack first and never think later type thing and they always are self-proclaimed liberals. And my thing is the liberals in Washington are just like teenagers because they react on impulse and emotion, never thinking anything through. And that’s why teenagers cling to the left, like Christians cling to our guns and our God. So that’s, I think… Because I’m so focused on getting the youth movement going, and I read today on Yahoo they always have those stories that the hip-hop movement is getting the youth movement going. But I feel like I can’t be a part of that movement because their movement is all for Obama. And they cling to one another.

RUSH: Not only that you want to stay alive.

CALLER: (giggling)

RUSH: I mean, street cred for hip-hoppers is a murder charge.

CALLER: It is, especially when we’ve got most of them like Jay-Z talking about the white devil in the president’s house, you know, before. You know, when Bush was still in power.

RUSH: Yeah, of course, I know all that stuff.

CALLER: Yeah, so I can’t be a part of that group. Just wanted to feel, just wanted to vent, just wanted to share that with you.

RUSH: Well, I appreciate that. We’ve gotten a lot of calls since the Easter break, the spring break, a lot of calls from young people like you, and it’s very comforting to the people that listen to this program to hear people like you out there and understand that you have a solid grip on things. Yeah, there’s anger everywhere. I’m surprised at it because the people that are angry are the people who are winning. Their people are winning elections, they’re winning on the policy battles and they’re still mad. They’re still angry. They’re perpetually angry! They’re perpetually enraged. And people have asked me why.

I don’t know. I can’t relate to being mad all the time. I don’t want to be mad all the time. I don’t want to wake up mad. I don’t want to go to bed mad. I don’t want to spend all day mad. There are a lot of people that do it, though, and I, frankly, I don’t understand it. It’s not something that I want to try to parse and analyze. All I know is that they’re not the people are going to get anything done. The constant complaining and whining and anger has got a root cause somewhere, and it all equals is unhappiness and dissatisfaction. And they end up striking out at people like you and your sister and blaming everybody else for the fact that they don’t feel very happy, when in fact they need to look inward.
