RUSH: You know what? Hillary Clinton went out the other day in an interview with Christiane Amanpour and pretty much admitted everything I have been trying to warn people of about the American left and the Democrat Party! She went out and in her best Maxine Waters impersonation. She was encouraging people to be uncivil, and she was saying that it was justified being uncivil, given the opposition, the Republicans.
And, if they win the House, then they can go back to being civil. If they win the Senate, then they can return to civility. I mean, they’re making the case, they’re proving the point, and there isn’t… I don’t see in all of this… In all of this crazy, deranged, unhinged behavior of left-wing activists, I haven’t heard one elected Democrat denounce it. I haven’t heard one elected Democrat attempt to distance himself or herself or the party from it.
I haven’t heard one elected Democrat suggest to these deranged protesters to dial it back. I haven’t heard one. They are all encouraging it. My point is: This is who they all are — and with Hillary Clinton now advocating this incivility. What did I tell you yesterday? We’re not in a battle of ideas anymore. We’re not in an argument over ideas. They don’t… They’re not even looking at any of this as about ideas.
They see America today as flawed and illegitimate and, therefore, in need of a new set of defining values that will serve to unify the people who want to be part of America. Not anything to do with our founding. Not the Constitution. Not the Declaration. That’s out the window ’cause all that’s tainted. All of that was written by a bunch of privileged white guys who were setting up a system for themselves and their families and their descendants.
And they didn’t care about minorities. And they didn’t care about transgenders. Where did I see…? Some state. I’ve got it in the Stack. I’ll have to find it. Some state, on birth certificates, is now going to offer a third option, a third gender option on the birth certificate. They’re crazy! They’re literally nuts! They are at war with science! They’re at war with biology! They’re at war with physics! And they are at war with common sense. Hillary Clinton is not helping them with any of this.
It’s okay to be uncivil.
It’s okay to claw at the doors of the Supreme Court and try to get in to stop the swearing-in ceremony of Brett Kavanaugh.
RUSH: I mentioned this at the beginning of the program. Hillary Rodham Clinton did a TV interview with her bud, Christiane Amanpour, on CNN yesterday, and Hillary Clinton said that this is a time for incivility.
This is a time for people to be mean and rude and violent against Republicans! This is a time for it! And the time for this incivility to end will be when the Democrats take back the House or the Senate. Hillary Clinton discussed President Trump, the Supreme Court justice, Brett Kavanaugh, and civility in politics with Christiane Amanpour on CNN. Amanpour said, “Last night…” This happened yesterday.
“President Trump had a sort of ceremony for now Justice Kavanaugh at the White House., and apologized on behalf the American people for the immense amount of pain and harm that he said that the judge had been put through by this system. What do you make of that and what message, including the president’s mocking of Christine Blasey Ford for her allegations, what message does that send to women? And remember, went for President Trump in 2016.”
Hillary said, “White women.”
Amanpour: (paraphrased) “Yes, that’s right. White women! I forgot. White women. We don’t like white women, right, Hillary?”
(Hillary impression) “That’s right; we don’t, even though I am one.
“White women. All women went for me. White women went for Trump. And look, White women have been voting against Democratic presidential candidates for decades now. The White vote has only then won twice in the last 60 years. My husband being one of the two. Lyndon Johnson being the other. So, it’s not a surprise. It’s a disappointment but it’s not a surprise.” (translated) It’s a disappointment that white women vote Republican and not for me, but it is what it is.
And therein Hillary Clinton stumbled and swerved into a truth. Except for the very exceptional election year of 1964, which was following the JFK assassination, the Democrats have not gotten more than 50% of the white vote in a presidential election since 1932. Now, when you look at it that way, you can understand why in Democrat Party circles there’s hatred for “white people.” White people, white women, have been rejecting them. White, married suburban women have been rejecting them.
This is why the feminazi movement sprang up. This is why the left has started concocting all different categories for nonwhite suburban women to be plugged into so that they can then be said to be Democrat constituents. And, by the way, this is, again, why in 1965 Ted Kennedy and the Democrats reopened the floodgates to immigration. I need to remind everybody again from about 1921 to 1923 through 1965 we shut down immigration. Not to zero. But we put very strict limits on it.
The reason was to be able to assimilate all of the immigrants that had come into the country the late 1800s through the 19, early twenties. Assimilation was key to American immigration policy. Arriving immigrants all wanted to be citizens, by the way. And there were things they had to do to become citizens. They had to learn the language, and they had to learn the history of America, they had to be able to pass questions about the history of America on a test.
And they had to swear and pledge their loyalty and devotion to the United States. And they were eager to do it. And they were happy to do it. Now, they maintained their ethnicity, the Irish, the Italians, you name it. But they wanted to become Americans. And they did. And it took a number of years to assimilate them all. Well, 1965 is when Ted Kennedy led the charge to reopen the immigration floodgates, which then, of course, led to…
Once that happened, illegal immigration ramped up in an uncontrollable way. And that wave of immigrants starting in 1965 came from Third World socialist countries. The Democrats realized they could only win the White House if they changed the population of America. They were losing presidential elections with the Native American population because they were losing white women. And Mrs. Clinton just admitted it here to Christiane Amanpour of CNN.
It never occurred to them to change their policies. What they had to do in order to attract white voters, what they had to do was change America. So back to Hillary. She said, “What was done last night in the White House,” meaning Trump apologizing for the nation to Kavanaugh. “What was done last night in the White House,” she said, “was a political rally. It further undermined the image and integrity of the court. And that troubles me greatly.”
“[I]t saddens me, because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government.” BS! The judicial system has been viewed by you as election insurance. The judicial system has been viewed by you and Mrs. Clinton, the rest of the Democrats as your private refuge. You have looked at the court as a place you can stock like-minded leftist activists to make sure things that you believe in which never could pass legislation somehow become law in America.
That’s why they want the courts. If you want to really get frustrated, and you’ve heard me say this, and you probably heard a lot of other people, but stop and think about this. Outside of Obamacare, practically every liberal mistake, every liberal idea and belief that now is the law in this country would not have become law in Congress because it never would have passed. Liberalism and the Democrat Party’s ideas have never been mass popular.
The only way that we have bastardized pop culture laws and reality today is because Democrat activist judges have been essentially writing law when they take cases and interpret them and then pronounce decisions. Roe v. Wade is the most sterling example of this. But there are countless others. The simple fact of the matter is, the Democrat Party has never been capable of winning legislation to implement the ideas they believe in because most of the American people, when they know what’s at stake, don’t want them.
That’s the value of judges, that’s the value of courts to the Democrats, when Mrs. Clinton says that what happened in the White House the other night “saddens” her “because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government.” BS. Not by you. In fact, to Hillary Clinton and people like her, the Constitution’s an obstacle as well! It’s certainly not something to revere.
Christiane Amanpour: “[D]o you see any way…? Even a conservative who I was speaking of yesterday said the only way to repair America is try to get back to some civility and to try to make it that even if we have political disagreements, we’re not going to war with each other; we’re not trying to destroy each other.” Hillary Clinton: “Well, certainly I would love to see us return to civility,”
Christiane Amanpour: “Listening to one another, working out our differences. That is not the Republican Party that exists today, and that is certainly not the administration that we have in power right now. When the Republican Senate denied the right of President Obama to have his nominee for the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland,” and we are we go off to the races again mischaracterizing that. Blue in the face. That’s a Joe Biden rule! The Democrats invented that rule that presidents don’t get to name Supreme Court justices during vacancies that happened in the last year of their term.
That’s a Democrat-instituted rule, and she knows it. But the Republicans didn’t destroy Merrick Garland. The Democrats didn’t have to fight battles defending his character and his life because the Republicans were not trying to destroy him, as they did Kavanaugh. Anyway, the upshot of this is that Hillary Clinton says it’s a time for incivility. It is a time for this kind of extremism because that’s what we’re up against. Steve Scalise, who was shot by one of the believers of Hillary Clinton at that Republican baseball practice, cannot believe it.
