RUSH: Grab audio sound bite… Let’s start at number four here. I saw this headline today: “Men Used to Whistle at Me, and I Wasn’t Happy About It.” You know who said that? That’d be Michelle (My Belle) Obama, while twirling on the dance floor doing the tango in Argentina. “First Lady Michelle Obama has been the victim of sexism, she said Wednesday, because men used to whistle at her while she walked down the street.” This is yesterday in Buenos Aires, Argentina…

MICHELLE: [B]y the time I started school, I began encountering people outside of my home who had less faith in my ability to reach my goals: Teachers who didn’t think that I was smart enough, and would call on the boys in class instead of the girls, even though the girls had better grades. People who thought a girl shouldn’t have ambition, and they would ask my brother what career he planned to have, but would ask me what kind of man I wanted to marry.

RUSH: You know, this is what’s incredible here. You’re dealing with a woman married to the most powerful man in the world. I mean, this is an exalted position. The presidency of the United States is the pinnacle. If you look at politics as a business, it’s the pinnacle. In any other realm, to run around and after almost eight years serving a co-leadership role in terms of leader of the Free World, and still be walking around with childhood grievances, to whine about childhood grievances, to continue to push some corrupt, leftist agenda?

To claim that she hasn’t gotten own the horrors of being a young girl in this reprobate place called America when she was growing up, and here she is on foreign soil telling everybody essentially what an unfair, what a rotten, what a sexist place she grew up. But there’s hope. There’s hope. And I’m sure she says, in this thinking, the women of Argentina, and the young girls of Argentina are facing the same thing, and she stands there as an example of all of the horrors that can be overcome. I tire.

I tire of these people running around the world essentially telling everybody that they can get to listen to ’em what a horrible place their own country is. And if you listen to Michelle Obama, you would think that all of this discrimination and all of these… She’s sitting as first lady of the United States, and she can’t get past it. She can’t get over it. She wants… I’m telling you, these people are bitter. They have not gotten over it. All of this is personal, and they haven’t gotten rid of their anger. They haven’t gotten rid of whatever resentment chips on their shoulder they harbor.

Here’s the bit about sexism being… Do you know how many women would love being whistled at walking down the street? (interruption) Am I gonna get fined for that? Am I out of touch observing that? Seriously, Mr. Snerdley. Sadly… You know, sadly, I might be on the edge acknowledging that. (interruption) Yeah, the wolf whistle. Okay, you’ve got your average American construction site, and you have your average American construction worker, and every woman in the world knows if you go walking bay there you’re gonna get whistled at, and yet they walked by.

Depending on time of day, it doesn’t matter.

They’re all gonna get whistled at. The idea that that is discriminatory? This is what’s wrong with the modern era of feminism in the first place, is it takes normal, natural human nature and tries to corrupt it or say that it’s corrupt — or perverted — and then use the power of government to force people to behave in ways that violate basic human nature. “I’m sorry, Mrs. Obama, but God made me a man, and as such I can’t help noticing a woman who I think’s attractive. I’ll be damned if I’m gonna shut up and not tell her so.” But boy, if you do you’re insulting her brain as though she doesn’t have one or engaging in… So now no wonder men don’t go to college.

Who wants to be victimized by this kind of stuff? Here’s what she said about it…

MICHELLE: As I got older, I found that men would whistle at me or make comments about how I looked as I walked down the street —

RUSH: The horror.

MICHELLE: — as if my body were their property —

RUSH: Oh, come on.

MICHELLE: — as if I were an object to be commented on. I began to realize that the hopes I had for myself were in conflict with the messages I was receiving from people around me, messages that said that, as a girl, my voice was somehow less important, that how my body looked was more important than how my mind worked.

RUSH: Folks, this is 1969 stuff! This is 1969 stuff that she is spewing here. Modern era of feminism. It dates back to then. I’ll never forget it. I know that’s the year, ’68, ’69, ’70, that period, ’cause I happened to become a man in those years, and I will never forget. (chuckles) You talk about the horrors? Try being a guy with women thinking all this. Noticing them is offensive. Noticing them is sexism. Just simply noticing them is “subjugating” them. But still, think about it. To be the First lady of the United States, and to still be walking around harboring this kind of resentment — and then trying to pass it on.

And trying to inculcate young skulls full of mush in Argentina with the same rotgut about what a horrible place the United States was. But if you listen to the Democrat campaign, it still is. It’s one of the most amazing things. You listen to Crazy Bernie, you listen to Hillary Clinton talk about just the last seven years. Seven years, they controlled. Seven years, their policies reigned supreme. Seven years, they had everything to do with defining, and listen to them talk about it, it’s astounding. And then the piece de resistance. She was not finished until this…

MICHELLE: Eventually, I just got tired of always worrying about what everyone else thought of me so I decided not to listen to the voices of those who —

RUSH: Stop the tape a minute. You’re still obsessed with what people think of you, otherwise you wouldn’t be saying any of this. That’s whole the point. All right, recue it at the top. Actually, there’s no recueing; it’s digital. It just happens. Here, play it again.

MICHELLE: Eventually I just got tired of always worrying about what everyone else thought of me. So I decided not to listen to the voices of those who doubted or dismissed me.

RUSH: Tiresome.

MICHELLE: Instead, I decided to listen to my own voice. You see, women here in Argentina and in the US, face so many of the same struggles. We struggle to be paid unequal for our work.

RUSH: Not anymore. No, no, no.

MICHELLE: We struggle to balance the needs of our family with the demands of our jobs. We struggle to stop domestic violence and abuse, terrible crimes that have no place in any country on this planet.

RUSH: This woman… I notice speech patterns ’cause I’m a highly trained broadcast specialist. I know this stuff. And I have no… From the first speech this woman gave as president, she was talking about “The Struggle.” We could go back to the sound bite archive, the first speech she made was talking about The Struggle, capital T, capital S, “The Struggle.” And it hasn’t stopped! Nearly eight years in, and The Struggle continues because that’s the key: The Struggle never ends, the oppression never ends. There’s never victory. You never overcome anything. There are always gonna be villains.

There are always going to be people out to stop you.

You can never, ever be happy! You can never, ever achieve anything. You have to keep people on edge. You have to keep people thinking that the world is stacked against ’em. You can’t inspire people. You can’t motivate people. You gotta tell ’em how the rest of the world — and your own country, in fact — is nothing but a bunch of reprobates. What a message to take internationally, one of condemnation your own country, one of dispiriting negativity. It’s just… It’s always amazed me. It’s not just her, by the way. It’s the entire American left. It’s why they’re never happy. You never run into one that’s happy.

In fact, if you’re happy around one, you are provoking them.

But I just find the whole — what’s the mind-set? Let’s go to Argentina, tell everybody how rotten we — you’re president and first lady. Millions of Americans ostensibly agreed with you, supported you, love you. They elected you. The majority of your fellow citizens, you run around the world running them down. I don’t understand the mindset. No, I do. No, I totally understand the mind-set. And it’s something so foreign to me that it takes great effort to understand it, and I know I will never be able to relate to it.
