Will the Low-Info Crowd Ever Get It?
May 10, 2013
RUSH: Here's Bob in Cleveland. Bob, hi. Great to have you, sir, on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. Good afternoon. Hey, while I was on hold I just received the cases of blueberry Two If By Tea I ordered. It doesn't get any better than this. And since it's Friday and I'm the boss today, one more point on Benghazi: I'm not sure what's more depressing, knowing that there's more than 50% low-information ignorant voters out there or knowing that this regime actually denigrate the honor of these people. Because the very ignorance is perpetrated by the deceptive, divisive stories that this regime puts out. And then they use that same ignorance against the very people they serve, or they say they serve. They denigrate their honor by doing this. I wish people understood and knew the abhorrence in this.
RUSH: Yeah, I'm the same way. I wonder in the middle of this story now, "How many people...?" This is my question, and we're talking low-information voters.
RUSH: How many of them get it, and then how many care? Of those who get it, that's just the first step. There may be a lot of them who get it. "Yeah, the regime covered up. Yeah, the regime lied. Yep, they told a fib about the video." But then how many of 'em care? How many of 'em think that means anything? How many of them think that's a big deal? Because Jodi Arias is getting sentenced on May 15th!
CALLER: But as they watch the decline of this they can't help but to turn around and start to open up and realize.
RUSH: The decline of what?
CALLER: All our values, our nation, our money.
RUSH: What do you mean the decline of values? They see their values triumphing! Authority is being obliterated. "Right and wrong" is being obliterated.
CALLER: Well, it's like the difference between good versus evil. Evil always looks good at the onset, at the beginning, but it always turns negative.
RUSH: Well, we don't even need to call it good versus evil. Right versus wrong.
RUSH: Smooth sailing versus trouble. Trouble is always more adventuresome! Trouble is always more exciting. Getting away with it's even better, especially when you can ram it down the throats of those people who are offended by it.
CALLER: Well, that just goes to show you the nature of the very people that are perpetrating it, which is in this regime. I think it's abhorrent.
RUSH: I agree with you.
CALLER: I'm glad your voice is out there letting people know all of this.
RUSH: Well, me too.
CALLER: I think it's amazing.
RUSH: I appreciate it. You said when you started your call, that while you were on hold you received your delivery of blueberry Two If By Tea?
CALLER: Amen! I tell you, this stuff's good. I order one every two weeks or so. If I can keep it away from my wife, I get more than two bottles.
RUSH: Wait a minute.
RUSH: A case lasts you two weeks?
CALLER: No, not really. (laughing)
RUSH: I was gonna say.
CALLER: I can't put you on my monthly income.
RUSH: You know what people do? If you really want to hide it, hide this stuff behind the vegetables in the refrigerator.
RUSH: Nobody will find it. If you put it behind the mayonnaise or the ketchup or whatever else, they'll see it right away. But hide it behind the vegetables where nobody's gonna look and nobody will steal it.
CALLER: I gotta keep it in the fridge at work, and then I feel guilty not telling her I have it.
RUSH: Well, let me tell you what I'm gonna do. How long did you have to wait? Our shipping is pretty good. You shouldn't have had to wait long. When did you order it?
CALLER: Three days ago.
RUSH: Whew! See?
CALLER: Normally I get it next day, two days. This time it took just a little longer.
RUSH: Right. And what did you pay for that shipping?
CALLER: I think it was free shipping.
RUSH: That's exactly right! It's free shipping the next day or two days. I tell you what I'm gonna do. I am holding here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers -- right here -- the latest, greatest item in our Two If By Tea store, the El Rushbo tumbler. It's the revered Rush on one side and Rush Revere (the Two If By Tea logo icon) on the other side. It's a16-ounce tumbler, perfect for consuming Two If By Tea or anything, hot or cold. Ice does not melt and the glass does not drip, and it's perfect for the microwave and the dishwasher.
RUSH: Yeah, and the tea will taste even better in these babies.
CALLER: It sounds slightly better than the tea.
RUSH: Well, it depends. (laughing)
RUSH: It's the best of both!
CALLER: Yes, it is.
RUSH: It's the best of both. So, look, I want you to hold on, because I'm gonna get your shipping address. Snerdley has to have it. I want to send you a couple of tumblers and another case.
CALLER: Oh, man, Rush! Thank you very much.
RUSH: You bet. It's my pleasure. So don't go away, Bob. Snerdley will be right with you.
RUSH: Here's Chuck in Walton, Kentucky. Hi, Chuck. Welcome to Open Line Friday. I've got about a minute, but I still wanted to get to you.
CALLER: Mega dittos, Rush, thanks for taking my call.
CALLER: I was telling Bo that it just seems like every type of group or anything that stands for responsibility, you know, accountability, anything that's right and just, and even Christianity for that matter, you know, any founding groups that represent our traditional values is under assault by this administration. It's all damage control. It just seems like the left-wing media has made this guy incapable of error.
RUSH: Let me tell you something. My dream is that everybody become aware of what's happening the way you are. And you understand it. Every institution or person who is in any way conservative or traditional is indeed going to be attacked if they become a threat. The individuals or the institutions will be. And the media will jump right in because the objective is twofold: Protect Obama but also defeat us. And that is a prime motivation. I think the more people understand that, then more people will then be able to disregard and disbelieve the lying criticism that results.
