RUSH: Here’s Patty in Longview, Texas. Patty, I’m glad you called. Great to have you on the program. Hello.
CALLER: Hi. Thank you for taking my call. I have a question for you. I’m originally from Honduras, and I truly do not understand how this country is now paralyzed by race, that it now trumps individual liberty. I see that the tactic works, calling somebody a racist, but that’s not our benefit, my kids’ benefit. None of the elected officials stand up for freedom anymore, and I need to know if it’s time to panic.
RUSH: Well, how long have you been…? You say you’re from where, did you say?
RUSH: Honduras. And how long have you been here?
CALLER: Since ’86.
RUSH: Okay. You’ve been here quite a while. The phenomenon that you’ve noted is rather recent, ’cause you’re absolutely right. The number of elected officials who talk about freedom — either in an active sense or even theoretically, constitutionally — is zilch. This country is paralyzed by race because that is the chosen state of the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party has sought to advance itself politically by making as many groups of people victims of the Republicans as possible in people’s minds.
