Don Hoffa Goes to the Mattresses
September 6, 2011


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT




RUSH:  So everybody's wondering when is Obama gonna repudiate Hoffa?  How do we know that Obama did not suggest to Hoffa that he say what he said?  What do you mean repudiate?  He went up there after Hoffa said what he said and basically praised him.  I mean, what is this, when is Obama gonna repudiate Hoffa?  Obama wrote it for Hoffa!  Who the hell do you think is inspiring these sons-of-bitches anyway?  Quote, unquote.  Well, I mean if Hoffa can use the lingo, and if Obama can find nothing wrong with it, I mean what are we talking about here, folks?  And Obama's gonna be making a speech to those sons-of-bitches on Thursday night.  Yeah, Cookie asked me, "Should I delete the word 'bitches'?"  No.  Hoffa used it.  This is your Democrat Party. 

By the way, greetings and welcome.  It's El Rushbo, and I feel confident that your kids that are worth anything are back in school, so I don't mind using the lingo.  If your kids are not in school they're worthless kids anyway and probably already know the lingo before I do. And, yes, I'm in a fit to be tied mood today about a whole bunch of stuff so just bear with it. 

You probably heard Jimmy Hoffa's attack on the Tea Party at the Labor Day speech in Detroit, Obama's praise of Hoffa afterwards.  Everybody say, "Well, when is Obama gonna refute Hoffa?"  Hell, Obama wrote it for Hoffa.  Obama suggested it.  Before we get to what was said, don't you just love the irony?  Here we have James Hoffa and Barack Hussein Obama, mmm, mmm, mmm, commemorating Labor Day in Detroit, a city that epitomizes the disaster brought about by the alliance of labor unions and government.  Here is a city that is crumbling.  They are bulldozing parts of the city.  It's a city run by Democrats and unions for 50 years. 

What is the unemployment rate in Detroit?  Something like 50%. Detroit is one of our strong markets.  The unemployment rate in Detroit is astronomically high.  They're tearing half the city down.  They're leaving it for farmland.  Obama goes there to celebrate the triumph of organized labor.  You know, it's perfect, really, because what you have there is everything you need to know about unions.  Everything you need to know about 'em.  And as you may have heard by now, ladies and gentlemen, in his introduction of Mr. Obama, Jimmy Hoffa said... wait, why read it.  Why not let you hear it.  But before we play Jimmy Hoffa let's put this in the proper context, shall we? 

(playing of The Godfather music)

RUSH:  President Obama meeting with Don Hoffa in Detroit to talk about the working man.  And here's what Don Hoffa had to say.

HOFFA:  We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war.  They got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan and America. We're going to win that war. President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son-of-a-bitches out (cheers) and give America back to America where we belong.

RUSH:  That's a declaration of war.  I mean that is a come-on to violence.  That's a call for violence, folks, from Don Hoffa to Barack Obama, standing right beside him.  Can there be any doubt Hoffa, maybe Obama, been thinking of the Republicans as their bitches ever since he was elected?  Detroit has the highest unemployment rate in the US.  It's 15.7%.  I hope before this is all over Hoffa has to go hide in Italy someplace.  This is all about the Tea Party, scared to death.  Hoff wants to go to the mattresses.  That's what this is all about.  Here's Obama.  This is Obama after Hoffa.

OBAMA:  Some proud sons and daughters of Michigan representing working people here and across the country.  SEIU president, Mary Kay Henry.  (cheers and applause)  Teamster president, Jimmy Hoffa.

RUSH:  Yeah, right on, right on.  Let's listen, grab sound bite one again, let's listen to Don Hoffa. 

HOFFA:  We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war.  They got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan and America. We're going to win that war. President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son-of-a-bitches out (cheers) and give America back to America where we belong.

RUSH:  Right on, there's Obama cheering and cheering because Hoffa said it exactly as Obama intended it to be said.  Now, you'll notice, ladies and gentlemen, Hoffa was not speaking metaphorically.  This was not about targets on some online map.  This was not talk about reloading.  This was a direct call for violence.  Make no mistake about this.  It was a direct call for violence, a direct threat against a large portion of the American people.  In fact, Hoffa was calling for attacks against his own union members.  You know, the Tea Party has a number of Teamster members in its ranks, and that ticks Hoffa off.  There's a lot of Teamster workers in the Tea Party.  They, too, are fed up with all the spending.
Here comes good old Maxine Waters and Maxine's calling for another trillion dollars in stimulus.  Way to go, Maxine, that's exactly what created the Tea Party in the first place.  "Robert Redford Disappointed in Obama."  The Washington Post with a story: "Obama Ratings Sink to New Lows as Hope Fades." Hopes are not fading, ladies and gentlemen, hopes because Obama's failing are rising.  At least they are here at the EIB Network.  What is this hope fades?  As far I'm concerned, hope is soaring.  The more Obama fails the better off we are.  Robert Redford, wrinkles and all, says he's disappointed, can't figure out what the guy stands for, has written a column, not gonna bother you with it, it's illiterate.  Basically he just doesn't understand who the guy is anymore. Well, he never knew who the guy was, everybody fell for image. 

Anyway, after Hoffa finishes Obama spoke from the same podium where Hoffa had just launched his attack.  He didn't chastise Hoffa for his over the top attack on the Tea Party.  He didn't even apologize for Hoffa's rhetoric.  He did not dissociate himself from Hoffa.  Instead Obama specifically praised Hoffa.  Now, mind you, this is the guy, Barack Obama, who lectured us around the clock about the Tucson shootings, about how we needed to be more civil in public discourse.  Okay, cut the Godfather music, here's Obama in Tucson, my birthday this year, January 12th, at the University of Arizona.



OBAMA:  At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized --

RUSH:  Yeah.

OBAMA:  At a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world --

RUSH:  Yeah, right.

OBAMA:  -- at the feet of those who happen to think differently than we do --

RUSH:  Yeah.

OBAMA:  -- it's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we're talking with each other in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds.

RUSH:  Yeah, okay, well, let's do that.  Let's do that.  Let's talk with each other in a way that heals and not in a way that wounds. 

HOFFA:  We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war.  They got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan and America. We're going to win that war. President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son-of-a-bitches out (cheers) and give America back to America where we belong.

RUSH: Yeah.  When's Obama gonna repudiate Hoffa?  He's not gonna repudiate Hoffa.  He suggested it to Hoffa.  And then he praised Hoffa when Hoffa was finished.  Let's go back to the Grooveyard, our archives, November 6, 2008, CNN, Campbell Brown, No Bias, No Bull I guess was the name of her ill-fated show.  She was talking to correspondent Joe Johns about conservative reaction to the election of President-elect Obama, and Campbell Brown said, "We all saw the pictures on election night of people all over the world dancing in the street, but some Americans, particularly conservatives, have very different feelings about President-elect Obama.  Many of them feeling really, really angry right now.  Joe Johns has been listening to what can only be called right-wing rage.  Joe, tell us what these conservatives are saying."

JOHNS:  Guess who's already hammering away at the Democrats? Rush Limbaugh, blasting both Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama hours after the polls close.

RUSH ARCHIVE:  He is good old-fashioned Chicago thug just like Obama is a good old-fashioned Chicago thug.  On the night of the Clinton election, Rahm Emanuel was so angry at the president's enemies that he stood up at a celebratory dinner with colleagues from the campaign, Rahm Emanuel grabbed a steak knife, and he began rattling off a list of betrayers, and as he listed their names, he shouted, "Dead, dead, dead," and he plunged the steak knife into the table after every name.  This is not a bunch of people that are going to govern from the center.

JOHNS:  So if you were thinking the country is now unified, think again.

RUSH:  Okay, so they're getting on me, CNN was outraged when I called Obama a Chicago thug.  Has there been any outrage over Jimmy Hoffa?  Audio sound bite number one. 

HOFFA:  We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war.  They got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan and America. We're going to win that war. President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son-of-a-bitches out (cheers) and give America back to America where we belong.
RUSH:  That's a direct call for violence against the Tea Party.  No media outrage.  No reports from Joe Johns on CNN about there isn't any unity.  Obama will speak on Thursday to the son-of-a-bitches, in a joint session Congress before the NFL kickoff, the New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers.  This morning on Fox & Friends, the guest is Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz, a discussion about Hoffa and his introduction to President Obama yesterday.  Cohost Gretchen Carlson played the clip and said, "Some people are saying that's violent language, congresswoman.  The White House is refusing to respond to that.  As head of the DNC what is your official response to Hoffa's threats?"

SCHULTZ:  My official response is that we need to make sure that we focus on the middle class and working families, and that we bring everyone in this country together from both sides of the aisle to focus like a laser on continuing to get this economy turned around.

CARLSON:  So wait a minute.

SCHULTZ:  That should be our priority.

CARLSON:  But wait a minute.



RUSH:  Right.  "Wait a minute, wait a minute."  Never mind, Gretchen, you're not gonna get anything from "Blabbermouth" Schultz.  In fact, let's go back to January 16th this year on Slay the Nation, Bob Schieffer was talking to Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz, he said, "Do you plan to dial back your rhetoric when Congress convenes this time?"

SCHULTZ:  I don't plan to debate my values and the principles of my constituents any less vigorously, but I think it starts with us and we have to lead by example, and so I think all of us need to be more careful about the words that we choose to use including things like the title of the repeal of health care reform.  I'm glad that Speaker Boehner chose to verbalize a different title for that bill, but they so far have refused to actually change the title of job killing health care repeal.  So I think we need to be leaders by example and when we do that, then hopefully we're gonna be able to push the shock jocks and others outside our process to take a page from our book.

RUSH:  That would be me, the shock jocks, of course.  But Hoffa?  Hey, exactly what Obama wanted said.  In fact, last night John King's USA, we have a montage.  He talked to the Teamsters Union General President Jimmy Hoffa in this montage and he didn't even ask him about the sons of bitches comment.  Listen for yourself.

KING:  I want to begin with your assessment of the president's speech.  Are you convinced now that the president gets the message, what should he do in that speech? ... ... You're rank-and-file members, do they support the president in high numbers or do they either stay home or we do have a Reagan Democrat moment? ... Are you confident heading into 2012 that your rank-and-file will support this Democratic president or will we see in places like Michigan what we saw in the Reagan days, blue-collar Reagan Democrats helping the Republicans? ... Do you view that labor, right there front and center in the Romney economic plan? ... James Hoffa is the president of the Teamsters Union.  Mr. Hoffa, thank you for your time this Labor Day.

RUSH:  Right.  Not one question about the SOB comment, not one question, but before we go to the break, let's not forget, John King apologizing for using the term "crosshairs" on CNN.

KING:  We were just having a discussion about the Chicago mayoral race just a moment ago. My friend, Andy Shaw, who now works for a good government group out there used the term "in the crosshairs" in talking about the candidates out there.  We're trying.  We're trying to get away from that language.  Andy is a good friend, he's covered politics for a long time, but we're trying to get away from using that kind of language.

RUSH:  Oh, this is fascism on parade.  This is how it works.  This is one party media, left-wing media supporting Democrats.  King interviewed Hoffa for six minutes, didn't even ask him about that question.
BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH:  A brand-new week of broadcast excellence hosted by me, Rush Limbaugh, the big SOB on the right, along with being The Big Voice on the Right.

So the question is being asked, "Will the president repudiate Hoffa's war on Republicans? Will Obama apologize for his vice president?"  We're not gonna waste time with what Bite Me said.  He's out there saying much the same kind of thing.  Question, "Will Obama ever condemn Congressman Carson for his comment the Tea Partiers want to see African-Americans hanging from trees?"  Now, again, and I'm serious about this, as far as Hoffa's concerned, how do we know that Obama didn't suggest Hoffa make those statements?  The White House has been asked about it, they're not commenting.  How do we know the president didn't tell Bite Me what to say?  Well, if there's no apology, if there's no rebuke from the guy who tried to set the tone on civility after the Gabrielle Giffords shooting and all this, the guy that wants us to work all together, big bipartisan speech coming up and he allows himself to be introduced in this manner and there's no response to it, then how do we know Obama didn't authorize this?



There's no apology, no rebuke.  The question's gonna remain open, the question will remain legitimate.  I haven't seen Obama publicly dress down Congressman Carson for his comments about Tea Party people wanting African-Americans hanging from trees.  So as far as I'm concerned, that means the president thinks the congressman's well within his rights to say that, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is exactly how a community organizer who was mentored and inspired by Jeremiah Wright behaves.  It's how a close friend and confidante of a domestic terrorist, Bill Ayers, behaves.  Union thugs, domestic terrorists, angry racists have found a special kinship with the president of the United States, and that is undeniable.
