Rush really does seem to get the Trump Rebellion.
TRUMP: Our country has no spirit. Our country has no gravitas. Our country doesn’t feel good about itself. And the primary reason is we have no victories. As an example, this horrible deal that we signed with Iran where we’re giving $150 billion and we lose everything. We lose everything. It’s a laughingstock of a deal. We have no victories. We need some pomp and circumstance. We need spirit. We need a cheerleader. I thought… Seven years ago when Obama got elected the one thing I thought that he would be a great cheerleader for the country; he’s not. He’s been a great divider for the country. He’s been one of the great dividers of all time.
RUSH: You think that doesn’t resonate with people that hear that? Every word of that has people — if not for real, euphemistically — standing up and cheering. We don’t have any victories. Look, we just had the World Series. The Kansas City Royals just won the World Series for the first time in 30 years, and only the second time. Big parade in Kansas City today. You know what it means. Whenever you’re part of a team — and a lot of people never get to experience this. Most people will never know what it feels like.
They can only imagine. To be on a championship team — be it the Super Bowl, be it the World Series, be it the Stanley Cup, be it something in college or even high school — it’s so rare. But, boy, if you’re a fan of that team, you feel like you’re on it just the same, and you get just as big a thrill, maybe bigger than some of the players get. But it is a high. It is almost euphoric, this winning. And he’s right! We’re not winning anything. We’re taking it on the chin no matter where you look. We’re taking it on the chin on our own border.
We’re taking it on the chin against terrorism. We are losing our culture. We are losing institution after institution that made and defined this country’s greatness. All of these things are under constant attack. It’s not that they’re rotting away or withering away. We are losing contests for them! There are people inside and outside this country who detest America, who detest American culture, who detest the founding, and they are hell-bent to change it and reform if and transform it — and they’re winning! And people opposed to that having no to cheer for.
The Republican Party hasn’t given ’em anything to cheer for. The Republican Party has misled them and lied to them and fooled them. There is no apparent opposition to any of this. And here comes Trump. And not even some of the Republican presidential candidates will stand up to what’s happening. The farthest they’ll go is to admit, “There’s problems and we need to fix them and I’m the guy that can do it and I can make it better.” But nobody besides Trump is actually identifying them.
Well, Ted Cruz. Ted Cruz is. More and more, people starting to think the dark horse out there that everybody actually does need to keep their eye on, because Ted Cruz would implement everything Donald Trump is talking about here, to one degree or another. But the facts that he’s right that we don’t have any winners. We’re not cheering anything. We’re being made to feel guilty for America, we’re being made to apologize for America, and it’s coming from the top. It is Obama who is leading the decline and seemingly happily.
It is Obama who says that he’s the guy to manage it. The Democrat Party is telling everybody, “This is a new reality here. This is the new normal, and you the better get used to it. The old days of American prominence? Those were artificial. We didn’t deserve those days! Those were phony. We didn’t really have that kind of prosperity. It was an illusion because we’d stolen all this from everybody around the world, and now the rest of the world wants back what we’ve stolen and by God, we’re gonna give it to ’em!
When you look at the Democrat Party and the whole Republican political establishment bending over backwards not to anger the illegals — to cater to, to pander to the illegals. Meanwhile, the illegals are not the ones that get to say what happens in this country; citizens are! But the citizens are being ignored. It’s worse than that. The citizens are not being ignored per se; the citizens are being purposely told to shut up, that we don’t know what we’re talking about, and that we are the reason this is all happening, because we have participated in all these behaviors that equaled American guilt.
So when Trump stands up and says, “Our country has no spirit,” he’s exactly right.
He certainly is. And liberals, both in the Democrat Socialist Party and the GOP, hate him for it.
