Rush has officially drawn a line in the sand and we Constitutional conservatives, Tea Party activists, and Reagan Democrats all need to join up to support him.
…over [my] 25 years, when anybody, any conservative, Ollie North, I don’t care who it is, when they’ve come under assault, Clarence Thomas, I don’t care, whether I knew ‘em or not, I ran in there and I defended ‘em to the hilt because of the cause, because I knew exactly why they were being targeted. Sarah Palin. I went in there and defended these people because I know that it’s an effort to undermine everything I believe. They attacked Palin, they attacked Ollie, they attacked Clarence Thomas, they’re attacking us, me.
Well, it’s not enough just to come here and tell you, “Oh, look what they’re saying about Palin. See ya, folks, have a great day.” Then tomorrow, “Oh, look what they said about Newt. See ya, folks, have a great day.” Why am I doing this? And the reason I wrote this [children's] book is to try to counter what’s going on. Why would you write a book on how the left has corrupted education if you didn’t have some desire to fight it? And this is what has frankly stunned me ever since Barack Obama’s election. I understand there’s a fear of the media, and I understand there’s a fear of Obama’s race, but it’s time to get past that. The guy’s president. He’s destroying the foundations of this country, as founded. He’s literally setting his sights on transforming this country into something it was never founded to be.
I don’t think that should happen, and I’ve been under the impression that everybody else that’s not part of the Democrat Party has been of the same mind-set, and that’s where I’ve been wrong. So those of us who fight back upset the applecart, are those who just want to sit there and accept it and try to manage their lives and careers in the midst of this mess because we’re upsetting the applecart. So we have to then be attacked as whatever.
That’s why they’re going after Cruz. What are they going after Ted Cruz for? What’s he done to anybody? It’s Obama they ought to be going after! Why are they going after Mike Lee? That’s why we defend these guys. They’re out there actually trying to beat this stuff back, and they’re doing it because they love the country. They’re doing it because they’re shocked and saddened by what they’re seeing happening here, and they don’t think it’s time to give up.
Look how rare that is! Sarah Palin, the same thing. Look at what happens to people that do that. I mean, even Republicans go after ‘em. They went after Reagan, too. It’s the same thing, but Reagan was able to overcome it. It’s a sad thing that there’s only been one of him, but that’s because they’ve done everything they can to revise history from that era and make people think it was the exact opposite of what it was. But, folks, the whole point of this latest book has been to join people, ’cause I know there are a lot of you.
This is the thing I know. A lot of you are fighting back, the Tea Party is. A lot of you do want to arrest this stuff and stop it and reverse it. A lot of you do want get rid of the current liberal power structure that’s destroying the fabric of the country, cultural, politically, societally, economically, you name it. It’s a wrecking ball that’s been unleashed each and every day, and I know all of you in the Tea Party and most of you in this audience are trying to stop it.
Rush has written a children’s book — “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans” — that makes a great gift for the holidays. It can be used to start fighting the insane collectivist rhetoric of the Far Left Democrat Party at a very young age.
Which, all things considered, could be one of the most important things we can do.
