RUSH: This is why I have been told private privately that people are not happy with what this thing is going to be tomorrow — on the Democrat side and the African-American side. Really. You know, Martin Luther King, for those of you that weren’t around 50 years ago, you talk about somebody that was transformational? To take the 50th anniversary of that event and to convert it, hijack it into something to advance your political agenda?
That’s as bad as wedding crashing, funeral crashing that the Clintons are famous for. This is really unseemly, if you ask me. I mean, this is close to these guys doing their Miley Cyrus impersonation. This is not cool. “King Anniversary Puts a spotlight on Obama”? “Economics is a safe way to talk about race,” meaning economics, grants one permission via class warfare and class envy to spout racism, which is what we’re gonna hear.
So there’s that. I had a friend of mine send me some excerpts opf Martin Luther King’s speech 50 years ago. There are four of them. He said, “You know, Rush, when I read what King said, I am reminded more of things you say than things Obama says,” which I took as a great compliment. So we’ll get into that in some detail as the program unfolds today.
