RUSH: Well, on that day in January of 2009 I said a lot of things. I said I hope he fails. I said if you think that voting for a black president is going to end racism and convince everybody we’re not a racist country, the slave days are over, you’re dead wrong. The election of the first African-American president is gonna lead to more racial criticism, more charges of racism. It’s gonna create a greater racial divide because presidents get criticized, presidents’ policies are disagreed with. But this time, when anybody disagrees or objects to an Obama policy, it’s gonna be automatically chalked up to racism. We’re gonna move backward on race relations, I said. And I think that’s been borne out. And another thing I said on that day, January 16th, was that we were not gonna end up being more unified. It was going to be the exact opposite.
RUSH ARCHIVE: I’m happy to be the last man standing. I’m honored to be the last man standing. Yeah, I’m the true maverick. I can do more than four words. I could say I hope he fails and I could do a brief explanation of why. You know, I want to win. If my party doesn’t, I do. If my party has sacrificed the whole concept of victory, sorry, I’m now the Republican in name only, and they are the sellouts. I’m serious about this. Why in the world, it’s what Ann Coulter was talking about, the tyranny of the majority, all these victims here, we gotta make sure the victims are finally assuaged. Well, the dirty little secret is this isn’t going to assuage anybody’s victim status, and the race industry isn’t going to go away, and the fact that America’s original sin of slavery is going to be absolved, it’s not going to happen. Just isn’t, folks. It’s too big a business for the left to keep all those things alive that divide the people of this country into groups that are against each other. Yes, I’m fired up about this.
RUSH: I said it, January 16th, 2009. There was no interest in solving these divides. There was no interest in ending the racial divide. There’s too much money in it. There’s too much power to be accrued. There’s too much prominence you can achieve by being in charge of the racial divide, or the race business, however you want to put it. But I knew back then that none of what they were telling us that Obama was gonna bring was gonna happen. It was not possible for it to happen because — I know this sounds so pedantic — he’s a liberal. They don’t unify people. They don’t do anything but exacerbate and expand problems. They live off of it. They need victims. They need an underclass. They need dependent, subservient people.
