RUSH: From the deranged America Stack. U.K. Daily Mail. Ready for this? “Parents slam Texas high school after two 10th graders were allowed to perform skit portraying the assassination of Donald Trump in front of classmates. Two sophomores at Marshall High School in San Antonio, Texas, were reprimanded after skit titled ‘The Assassination of Donald Trump’.
“One of the boys made a gunfire sound effect with his cellphone while the other boy, who played Trump, fell to the ground. The teacher apologized and stopped her students, school officials said. But Harold and Melinda Bean, parents of another student, were upset that harsher measures were not taken.”
I want you to imagine if this had happened eight years ago or four years ago and it was Barack Hussein Obama who had been portrayed as having been assassinated. Can you believe — folks, I’m developing a theory, and I don’t want to get too deep into it now. The left appears to me to be genuinely imploding, and I mean imploding to the point that low-information people are going to see how wacko they are. I think the nature of this implosion is going to be their marginalization.
This Trump victory is seminal in many ways, and it’s got its own curiosities about it. But when you look at the news, what Ford has announced — well, Trump announced that Ford is doing and Apple talking about making iPhones. I mean, those are two big things that really deserve a lot of attention, more than just the reporting of those details in the stories. But I don’t want to be misunderstood. I’m not saying the left’s gonna be defeated. They will never be defeated.
Tyranny is always there. Tyranny is always lurking. Tyranny will make a comeback. They’re gonna win again someday, because of the cyclical nature of things. But we have an opportunity here to expose who they are to the greatest number of people we’ve had in my lifetime, I believe. And I think they’re gonna help us, with this kind of stuff, and I got a couple other examples in the news today.
I think average, ordinary people who really don’t get political until election time and then the election’s over and they pretty much forget it because it’s not their passion, it’s not something that they devote a lot of attention to all the time, this stuff is gonna get noticed by these people.
One of my fervent desires has been that more and more people understand who liberals are, what liberalism is, what leftism is, what that ideology is, and I think this stuff’s gonna end up standing out. The better Trump does, the more success Trump has in growing the economy, in creating jobs, the greater opportunity it is gonna be to contrast the past eight years’ dismal failure measuring those same things. And we’re off to a pretty good start given that Trump’s not even been inaugurated yet.
We’ll chronicle some of these things during the program today. But I don’t want to be misunderstood. I’m not saying the left is gonna be defeated because that will never really happen. They’re all over the world and they never gonna go away. Obama’s not gonna go away. But the secret to this is exposing who they are to a vastly greater number of people than at present know. And you’d be surprised at the number of people who do not see anything ideologically. They’re just Republicans and Democrats and that’s it. They like ’em or they don’t like ’em. Why, they couldn’t tell you.
Now, they have been brainwashed to think conservatism equals a bunch of things it doesn’t mean, but I don’t know that they necessarily equate liberalism with greatness as a contrast. Mostly the conservative and Republican brands have been tarnished. Anyway, a long way of saying that I think there’s an opportunity here, things like this. In the Obama years this kind of action against Republicans was mainstream, it was applauded, entertainers celebrated it, did this kind of thing, and everybody just accepted it.
We now know that millions of people resented it and were offended by it and sent the Democrats and their sponsors packing. But now we’re gonna have a different mind-set and a different makeup here attitudinally of the country, so I think there’s an opportunity for these type of things, parents slam Texas high school after two tenth graders allowed to perform skit portraying the assassination of Trump in front of class. This is just oddball, kook stuff. But it’s who the left is, see. The opportunity to expose them.
RUSH: I didn’t get to the San Francisco story. The headline is: “San Francisco Teachers’ Union Offers Trump Lesson Plan.” Why kids should hate Trump. I’m just telling you, this kind of stuff is gonna become rare and rare, and it’s gonna stand out like a sore thumb, and as opposed to this becoming mainstream and rah-rah, these people are gonna become stigmatized and marginalized. I think it’s an opportunity here to expose what liberalism is and where it is and who they are. Time will tell.
