RUSH: There also, ladies and gentlemen, you know, one of the themes that I have been on for a long time, but Ive been intensely trying to drive home a point for the last two weeks, three weeks, and that is the utter failure of the Democrat Party to come through for its constituents. Youve heard me say this I dont know how many times. Maybe youre a little tired of hearing me say it. The Democrat Party has been promising utopia. And yet where is all this police brutality happening? In Democrat blue states.
Its so bad that theyre now seriously gonna defund police departments in Minneapolis, in New York, and in California. Liberalism is on record here as a total failure, folks. Socialism on record, on display, is a total failure. The Democrat Party, which is the home of all of that, on display as a public massive failure. Everything they have been promising their constituents are things for 50 years their constituents still have grievances about, their constituents are still complaining.
Look at civil rights. You have the Civil Rights Act 1964, 1965, LBJ and the Democrats going nuts, massively passing all this legislation to end inequality, to end discrimination, and yet what? Its worse now than ever. It is worse than ever. The Democrat Party and liberalism and their prescriptions is worse than ever. It is an abject, total failure.
And so what have they had to do? Well, now they give back. They cant blame themselves, obviously, which we all should. They are ultimately responsible. The Democrat Party (liberalism, leftism, communism, socialism, whatever) is an abject, total failure for the people whove been promised all of these wonderful benefits and utopian-type lifestyles.
So now what do they do to cover up their failure, which is a failure of over 50 years? Why, we gotta go back 400 years and we gotta blame America. We gotta blame Americas founding. Americas founding is itself unjust and immoral, and thats where the real problem lies. America is irredeemable! Americas original sins, whatever they are slavery, leaving other people out cant be fixed.
Why? Well, because the Democrat Party has been trying to fix em for 50 years and they failed, so obviously it cant be fixed, and this is where we are. This is how theyre covering their own butts with their own people, their own voters. They cant admit that what they believe in is a failure. They cant admit that their ideas dont work and havent worked.
So its the old fall back: Blame America and blame Republicans. Well, the reason I bring all this up is because I missed something yesterday that people called my attention to. Its a Wall Street Journal column by Daniel Henninger, and the headline is: Liberalism Has Failed, 50 years No, no. No. No, wait. Thats the headline I wrote. Americas New Nihilism is the headline.
You know what nihilism is, right? These intellectuals use these terms. Nihilism nihilism, however you pronounce it is a rejection of all religious and moral principles, and thats what the left believes in. The left doesnt believe in religion. They dont believe in God, and they dont want you believing in religion or God, and they certainly dont believe in morality.
Morality, to them, is however each individual defines it. You dont have the right to define morality! You Nobody has the right to tell them whats right and wrong. They get to do that. Well, thats nihilism or nihilism, and this is also part of the way theyre covering up for their massive failure. Anyway, Henninger writes about this massive failure, and he traces it back
You can go further than this, but he traces it back to 1968 and the protests in Chicago by the anti-war left against the Democrat Party, the convention, the DNC and all that. But it is really good. Its really good, and Im sorry I missed it, because I would have touted it yesterday, had I seen it. His column runs on Thursday. You may remember me talking when it came out.
Do you remember the Wall Street Journal headline or op-ed ? Actually, it was an editorial, meaning it wasnt signed, and it was about how weve lost our guardrails? Henninger wrote that. Henninger wrote it. Its rare for an unsigned editorial to have a life span like that one has. The guardrails are, you know, the things that keep us in the lanes: Morality and decency and right and wrong.
His piece was about the guardrails are plummeting, the guardrails are failing the guardrails are falling, theyre disappearing all because of liberalism and the Democrat Party. But, folks, it is so true, and it makes whats happening now all the more hurtful and incredible because they have convinced all these young Millennial kids.
A lot of wealthy, white Millennials have joined Antifa. So theyve convinced all these people of things that are not true, and theyve convinced them to be angry at people they have no reason to be angry at such as me, you and me. But its a mean trick to keep people its a pretty good trick to keep people fired up and wired up over something that has never worked.
But the point is that the Democrat Party, as it is constituted and as it is functioning today, all of this thats happening thats in relationship to the George Floyd murder, its all a failure. The fact that George Floyd was murdered is a testament to the failure of liberal Democrat politics. Where did it happen?
This kind of racism and bigotry and ugly behavior by the cops, the Democrats are supposed to have fixed that, right? I mean, thats what the Democrat Party promises. There isnt gonna be any of that stuff anymore. There isnt gonna be any meanness. There isnt gonna be any extremism where Democrats run the show, where Democrats rule the roost because thats where theres gonna be fairness, and equality, and sameness and all that.
And yet the worst examples of Americans depravity, the worst examples of Americas economic failing, the worst examples of Americas lack of morality are to be found right smack-dab in the middle of Democrat Party institutions, platforms, and existence.
RUSH: Now, back to the Daniel Henninger piece and, folks, this is a hugely important thing. You know, this program is about the way people vote. This program is about changing minds and hearts. This program is about being in the arena of ideas and having a chance to reach people who both agree and disagree, but primarily among those who disagree, to reach them in a way to cause them to question what they think.
Not by lying to them. Not by tricking them. Not by using them or humiliating them. Simply giving them a truth that they have not been exposed to, or series of them. The failure of liberalism is whats on parade here! The failure of the Democrat Party the failure of the Civil Rights acts and the civil rights coalition, the failure of liberalism and socialism and communism is on display with every riot, every protest march, every burned cop car, every torn-down building, every building set afire.
Every bit of evidence you see is a testament to the failure of liberalism, not to its success. It isnt working. Its people are not happy. Its voters are not satisfied. They are not content. Theyre not even close to content, much less happy. They are perennially enraged. They are constantly angry. And it makes perfect sense because every promise thats been made has been broken. Every promise thats been made has not been kept. And the promises are big.
I mean, you cant promise much more than utopia. They have promised to eliminate cops killing black people. They have promised to eliminate racial discrimination against African-Americans and minorities. They have promised to eliminate people laughing at you and making fun of you. They have promised to get even with people who are mean-spirited and angry. Theyve promised to get even with all these people who have more money than you. They have promised theyre gonna get even with all these corporations, these multinationals that dont hire you, and they overcharge you, and they cause you to lose your health care. Theyre gonna get even with all of it.
And they dont get even with anybody. And they dont fix anything. And the people that vote for em know it. Theres a witness. They got witnesses. Fifty years of abject, total failure. The mystery is why they keep voting for em. We know the answer. Because they have convinced them that we are whatever, the worst examples of whatever can be. The popular comparison today is Nazis. Were the modern incarnation of Nazis and Trump in Charlottesville, he said there are good people everywhere, including in the neo-Nazis, good things in the Klan. The Ku Klux Klan is a Democrat Party operation, folks. It always has been.
The Ku Klux Klan was the military wing of the Democrat Party back during the worst of the segregation days, and it was Democrat senators who led the segregation movement. And the Klan was their violence organization. Robert Sheets Byrd, a Grand Kleagle or grand cloogle or Grand Wizard, or whatever, now hes a U.S. senator. Well, hes not; hes dead. But he was a United States senator from West Virginia, Robert Sheets Byrd. That somehow never did attach itself to the Democrats. He could go on TV and use the N-word. He did it on Meet the Press. He used the N-word. Well, everybody understood that he was reformed.
So these protests, I dont care, peaceful or otherwise, they are demonstrations against failed Democrat blue state governors. They are demonstrations against failed blue state mayors and city managers. Were being told that all these protests are aimed at us, us Republicans and us conservatives, but we didnt do anything thats made them mad. That stuffs all happening in blue states. Minnesota, Minneapolis-St. Paul, liberal blue states, liberal blue cities running the police department. This is not supposed to be possible with Democrats running things. But look, it is. And it hasnt changed in 50 years.
All of these protests from sea to shining sea, coast to coast, are in response to deplorable and failed Democrat, liberal leadership. And you need to take note of this. It should result in these people getting fewer and fewer and many fewer people voting for them because theyre failures. Donald Trump is not responsible for whatever grievances these people are marching against. Donald Trump wasnt there when George Floyd died. Donald Trump wasnt anywhere near when that went down.
Daniel Henningers piece. This is not 1968. Its worse. The late 1960s were the heyday of modern American liberalism, which was then an ideology of hope. A bipartisan Congress passed landmark civil-rights legislation in 1964 and 1965. The precipitating event of the urban riots in 1968 was the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. New York, Trenton, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Kansas City, and Washington were on fire. Arguably back then, despite passage of President Lyndon Johnsons Great Society programs, not enough time had passed for liberal policies, to actually take hold. So hes being charitable here. So 64, 65, LBJ passes the civil rights legislation. The Great Society is what it was called. Massive welfare state creation. And by 1968, it still hadnt had time to plant roots and sprout trees and whatever, so it was still questionable.
Okay. Last week, George Floyd died after rough treatment from arresting Minneapolis policeman Derek Chauvin, who was arrested and charged with murder. Since then, there have been daily protests accompanied by riot and pillage in multiple U.S cities. A primary claim made repeatedly this week is that the U.S., which means the American people, are guilty of perpetual systemic racism.'
No. No. Just because things are all askew and broken in blue states does not mean America has a systemic racism problem. What it means is that liberalism and the Democrat Party have failed. But it doesnt mean America is bad. It doesnt mean that America has any explaining. America didnt do anything. There is no systemic racism that explains what happened to George Floyd. What happened to George Floyd took place because liberal Democrat policies and liberal Democrat power do not solve the problems they promise to solve.
RUSH: Well go to Philadelphia. This is Robert. Im glad you called, sir.
CALLER: Rush, you need to get it together, man, because this country needs you, you know what Im saying? I mean, you gotta hang in there be, you know what I mean? We need you. We need you right now. So just hang in there. You know what Im saying?
RUSH: Thank you, sir. Yep. Yep. Yep. I hear you. I hear you. I need to double down and work even harder. I got it.
CALLER: Thats it. I dont believe that this is my own personal opinion. I think this moved on to another section. It isnt about the shutdown. It isnt about the protests. It isnt about the looting and the violence, which Ive seen plenty living here in Philadelphia. Im gonna walk outside my house and hear the ATMs blow up
RUSH: Whats it about, then?
CALLER: Its about the Democrats sabotaging this country. They lost on the Russian thing
RUSH: Thats exactly (crosstalk)
CALLER: the Kavanaugh thing. Yeah. They lost on other things, and what do they got left? Sabotage. Thats it.
RUSH: Well, obviously they are sabotaging although sabotage, in some peoples minds, carries with it secrecy, that sabotage occurs when people arent aware of it. This is happening right in front of our faces. Thats my point today. The Democrat Party is an abject failure. American liberalism is an abject failure, and they are attempting to sabotage the country despite that. The failure is so embarrassing that the people that run this party and this movement have created an alternative universe of explanations like systemic racism. Thats just one example.
This is going to be a very dangerous weekend. If the DC mayor is successful, and they get to Trump and/or his family. We will be in a hot civil war.
Liberalism has morphed into cultural Marxism and to me at least, it’s never been stronger.
No unruly Leftist mob is going to get to him.
With the incremental loss of freedoms over the past 60+ years, along with the easy manipulation of Trump and the American citizens to shutdown the country for a virus (aided and abetted by the Chinese), I think the DEM political reality is almost there. The ability to *FACILITATE* riots in the US and not be punished for it just adds to the DEM politician's arsenal.
Rush is correct, but it’s irrelevant - as the masses of idiots who have bought the narratives will keep pushing for the very same failed policies and agendas until they have exactly what they want...
I fully agree. Liberalism used to be populated with the likes of Adlai Stevenson and Hubert Humphrey.
Liberalism may be a failure, but the leftists are certainly doing well.
I didn’t read the
I listened to it.
It gives me something
for My libtard
“If the DC mayor is successful, and they get to Trump and/or his family.”
The NG is only a few miles out of city limits. If crap hits the fan they will be there in short order.
Hope the Secret Service does not have to have a similar Lion of Lucerne Monument in a hundred years.
Just saying, I’m Hoping that things stay peaceful this weekend.
I must be out of the loop. What is supposed to happen this weekend in DC. More riots?
In real time...daily and hourly. Notice how Pelosi is mum?
“Socialism on record, on display, is a total failure. The Democrat Party, which is the home of all of that, on display as a public massive failure.”
But will they try to take the Republic down on their way out?
DC mayor is trying to kick the guard units out of town, and the usual suspects are saying that they’re going to be able to bus in up to a million protesters. Of course, there will be plans for riots and violence to follow.
Having previously withdrawn the DC police from maintaining order, the plan (according to me) is to force the secret service to use deadly force.
They’ll have some young people at the front of the crowd in hopes that they’ll get injured so they can waive the bloody shirt for the next four months.
Holy bullseye, Battman. Liberalism is an obvious failure, and yet half the electorate will rush to the polls to vote for more of it.
Okay thanks. I just found another post about this weekend. Time to break out the micro wave guns.
