RUSH: We’re gonna go to Worcester, Massachusetts. Debbie, welcome to the EIB Network. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush, and it’s as such honor. You are on my bucket list, so I can cross that off now.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: Hey, listen, when Obama became president was at the same time I was losing my husband to pancreatic cancer. So I just accepted it and went on. But life was very sad for me. And then four years when he made it again, I’m like, “Oh, my God, I’m even gonna lose my country.” But I accepted him, and I didn’t go out and destroy property. I didn’t go out and complain. I just said, “Okay. What’s happening is happening and I’m just gonna work hard the next time around,” and so I did that. I put such effort into the Trump campaign.
I managed hundreds of Facebook pages for him, and I knew that Hillary was gonna lose. And when I saw a debate where she planted the seed into the American minds that Russia — that Putin and Trump — had this connection, and then you could see Obama saying this? What they did is they created this story to taint his reign as president. And, of course, they succeeded, because how many months later it’s still top of the news. But what can we do as Americans, as people who don’t want all this corruption? What can we do to stop this? I mean, it’s ridiculous.
RUSH: (long sigh) Well —
CALLER: Is there help?
RUSH: The first thing you have to do is stop believing the news.
CALLER: Yeah. But it’s out there everywhere.
RUSH: I know it is.
CALLER: There are people that do believe it.
RUSH: I know what you’re talking about. When Obama was president, I didn’t know anybody on our side who had this idea of mounting the official resistance that featured rocks and riots and bombs and fires and protests and bought-and-paid-for rioters. What we did was attempt to reach as many Americans as we could and argued to them that they have made a mistake in voting Obama. That’s the way we do it. You accept the authority of the Constitution. This is my point. These people on the left do not accept any authority but theirs.
The Constitution is not an authority.
The election results are not an authority.
They only respect the authority of themselves — and in their world, Trump is illegitimate because he won. Nothing more than that! They hate him for more reasons than that, but he’s illegitimate because he won, not just because they expected Hillary. I mean, literally because Trump won! They refuse to accept it. He was not supposed to win. Nobody on our side’s ever supposed to win ever again. So they mount this “resistance.” It has a specific purpose, two things: to intimidate the winners into halting the advance of their agenda, the implementation of their agenda — and forcing them out of office.
I’ve always thought that an informed, educated public is the simple best weapon against all of this. And I still do. I mean, what are you gonna do, mount counter-resistance operations? We could think about that. But if the Republican Party’s not willing to go along with it… (chuckles) We’ve got a lot of disparate factors here. And, remember, the overriding thing about this is that it is the establishment — all of the establishment — that got beat. So the opposition to Trump is bipartisan. This is not Democrat versus Republican, and in many ways is not left versus right.
It’s ruling class versus country class, with us being the peons and the barbarians, and the ruling class being all those people who live in Washington and work in the deep state. And they, of course, are gonna buy and pay for all of this resistance and support it, and they’re not gonna charge them criminally when they engage in criminal acts. But it was always gonna be this way. I never thought this was going to be a cakewalk. I always thought the establishment was gonna react the way they have. Anyway, I appreciate the call. Debbie, I wish I had more of an answer for you on this.
I’ll admit, it’s a frustrating thing. The Democrats are losing elections. They lost another one, folks. They’ve lost three elections in the last two weeks. They lost the mayoralty in Omaha, and they’ve lost a couple others. Now, you say, “Big deal. That doesn’t matter. Mayor? Are you kidding me? You’re gonna put that in the loss column?” Yeah! Yeah, I am, ’cause they can’t win elections. The people are doing everything they can to stop Democrats! The problem is, the media is running the opposition, not the Democrats. You want to stop this? Stop the media. How do you stop the media? Turn ’em off, don’t believe ’em, don’t let ’em affect what you think and do. Beyond that, get creative.
