RUSH: REAL RACISTS Are Right There, Smack Dab In Our MEDIA

RUSH: It’s time for the 50-year proclamation, anniversary of the proclamation of Martin Luther King Day. And Trump presided over the ceremony. And it was in the White House. And he was surrounded by African-Americans, smiling, beaming African-Americans, thrilled to be there, thrilled to be there and part of this ceremony honoring Dr. King.

Vice President Mike Pence was there standing right behind Trump. He was smiling. There was not one sign, there was not one indication that there was the slightest bit of controversy that had gone on in the last 12 hours or 24. It was surreal. And the media’s in there, and you can hear their shutters snapping on their cameras. And you just know that they’re wanting to shout all kinds of questions, and they’re wanting to embarrass Trump, and they’re wanting to pummel Trump. But they hold back because it’s a ceremony honoring Dr. King.

And what was surreal about it was it was the elephant in the room. Here the Drive-Bys have created this, “Oh, my gosh. Can you believe it? It’s unreal. It’s unpresidential.” All of this over the president’s choice of a word. And a ceremony honoring Dr. King, and there’s Ben Carson and members of the King family, and they’re loving Trump, and they’re honored to be there. And you just know the media’s about to flip its wig. This isn’t supposed to happen. And so here’s Trump. We have two sound bites. A portion of his remarks at the proclamation ceremony.

THE PRESIDENT: Dr. King’s faith and his love for humanity led him and so many other heroes to courageously stand up for civil rights of African-Americans. Through his bravery and sacrifice, Dr. King opened the eyes and lifted the conscience of our nation. He stirred the hearts of our people to recognize the dignity written in every human soul.

RUSH: Stop the tape. Stop the tape. Can you imagine the media? “Dignity! You have the guts, you have the gonads to talk about dignity, you reprobate, you pig!” I can just hear it. I can hear the media’s flipping its wig! Trump’s talking about the dignity and conscience of our people and they’re just about to explode. And Trump continues…

THE PRESIDENT: And we celebrate Dr. King for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God.

RUSH: “Except for those people from those butthole places, right, Mr. President? Except for those people, right?” You just know they’re going nuts, and they did.

REPORTER: Mr. President, will you give an apology for the statement yesterday?

REPORTER: Mr. President, were you (bleep) countries?

REPORTER: Mr. President, (unintelligible) are you a racist?

REPORTER: Mr. President, can you respond to these serious questions about the statement, sir?

REPORTER: Mr. President, are you a racist?

RUSH: “Mr. President! Mr. President! Are you a racist, Mr. President? Do you want to apologize for that word, Mr. President? Mr. President!” Meanwhile, Trump and the assembled honorees — black civil rights leaders, Ben Carson, Mike Pence, members of the King family — they’re hugging each other. They are congratulating each other. Trump signs proclamation while the media’s shouting these questions it happen performance surreal. It was a giant disconnect, because the media… I guarantee you, the media was thinking that all of those African-Americans in that meeting should have boycotted and shouldn’t even gone out there.

And if they did go out there they should have refused to participate and they should have said, “Trump you’re a racist and you’re a pig and you’re not gonna bring us into your ceremony and give you any kind of credence!” But that didn’t happen. The African-Americans eagerly worked with the president, participated in this proclamation ceremony. The Drive-Bys were forced to point out… I shouldn’t say forced. The Drive-Bys could not wait to point out that all the African-Americans in the room were Republican.

And so what did that mean? “Well, they’re just tokens, obviously! Trump brought in a bunch of tokens. Those weren’t real African-Americans. Those weren’t real blacks. Those were just a bunch of tokens.” That’s what they implied by saying that. So who is it that the real racists are? Who is it that literally owns so much of the bigotry that we are faced with every day? It’s right there smack-dab in our media.
