Rush: We’re Winning!

Erik Rush is usually in the business of doomsaying. In his world, we are perpetually on the brink of a dystopian nightmare, with Obama wielding the guillotine and preparing to throw conservatives in the gulags (to mix a metaphor). But his latest column, titled “We the People are Winning!” seems kind of hopeful as he does his best impersonation of the Black Knight from the Holy Grail.

It is both surprising and gratifying that some of America’s brave patriots are finally getting their due in terms of recognition and positive publicity of late. While most major media outlets are not likely to counter the Obama narrative on anything until public executions have begun (and perhaps not even then), some that had been slow to cover the truckers’ Ride for the Constitution and the veteran’s protests this past weekend are now representing these as part of a movement among everyday Americans to resist our tyrannical president, his co-conspirators and entrenched progressive elites in our government.

Yeah, all 50 of those truckers, a third of them in pickups. That’s quite a movement you’ve got there.

Over the last few weeks in print and on my streaming radio show, I’ve articulated my sentiment that it is past the time millions of Americans should have swarmed the Capitol and the White House, demanding the resignation of the president, his Cabinet, and every representative and senator in Congress, à la Tahrir Square in Egypt when Muslim Brotherhood thug Mohamed Morsi was ousted earlier this year.

Granted that much of this will sound preposterous and even seditious to many Americans, but the fact is such persons simply aren’t operating with sufficient information – sort of like the intoxicant aboard the Titanic who didn’t realize the ship was sinking until it was perpendicular to the ocean surface. This criminal administration has the darkest of designs on the nation and its people, and we have every right and the duty at this point to resist it. The attendant necessity to purge the government at large of communists and socialist elites, both Democrat and Republican, would be the second order of business.

*yawn* Same bullshit the John Birch Society was spewing 60 years ago, when Eisenhower and Kennedy were the “communists” in power who had to be deposed. Perhaps it isn’t the Holy Grail being played out here in real life. It may be more like Groundhog Day.

    Okay, there are a lot of words in the English language. Most of them have multiple meanings. I’ve got a decent vocabulary, but there’s no way I know even half of English words given that so many of them are specific to a profession or activity (I know that lots of knots have names, some/most of which aren’t otherwise words, and I’ll likely never learn them)

    But words not specific to a profession/activity, words like “intoxicant”, well, I’ve got a pretty good handle on them. And just to be safe, I looked it up in several dictionaries. Not a single one lists “intoxicant” as having a noun-meaning anything other than “a substance that intoxicates”.

    I don’t know about you, but being surprised that an inanimate bottle of scotch, even a 30 year old Islay, was unaware of its surroundings sounds a bit…out of touch with reality.

    I wonder, is that unusual for Rush?

    They love our country and constitution so much, they’ll just have to put them out of their misery.

  3. colnago80 says

    To quote General Cornwallis after the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, “another such victory and we are undone”.

    Seditious racist assholes.

    So says Erik ‘respect my authoritah’ Rush:

    “Over the last few weeks in print and on my streaming radio show, I’ve articulated my sentiment that it is past the time millions of Americans should have swarmed the Capitol and the White House, demanding the resignation of the president, his Cabinet, and every representative and senator in Congress, à la Tahrir Square in Egypt when Muslim Brotherhood thug Mohamed Morsi was ousted earlier this year…”

    Fisrtly, ‘should have’ but didn’t Erik, perhaps your ‘warriors’ aren’t as ‘committed’ and ‘pure’ as you would like. Time to disown and purge them, amiright?)
    .
    Secondly, remember that popular discontent in Tahrir Square first put ‘Muslim Brotherhood thug Mohamed Morsi’ into power. Be careful what you wish for, Erik….

    Dingo

    A little earlier than Cornwallis:, I think you’ll find

    The armies separated; and, it is said, Pyrrhus replied to one that gave him joy of his victory that one more such victory would utterly undo him. For he had lost a great part of the forces he brought with him, and almost all his particular friends and principal commanders; there were no others there to make recruits, and he found the confederates in Italy backward. On the other hand, as from a fountain continually flowing out of the city, the Roman camp was quickly and plentifully filled up with fresh men, not at all abating in courage for the loss they sustained, but even from their very anger gaining new force and resolution to go on with the war.

    Only vaguely related: my happy thought about Ted Cruz is “you can’t gerrymander a whole state”.

    Isn’t purging social elites a communist thing?

    First of all, Morsi’s toppling had more to do with the Egyptian army’s actions than citizens swarming Tahrir Square…and it’s the generals who ended up in charge. The end result of a popular uprising in the US, if it attained pentagon backing (not that there’s the slightest chance of that happening), would be the same. The military is disciplined, organised and hierarchical. If its leaders ever did think Obama and Congress were “Destroying America” and decide they needed to step in to “Save Civilisation”, they’d be as likely to hand power over to Rush and his loony pals as to a bunch of hipsters chanting Occupy slogans.

    Second, Morsi only got his chance to sit in the hot seat because of a process that started with the first set of demonstrations in Tahrir. If Rush is equating Obama with Morsi, what does it say about his logic that he’s advocating for America to go through exactly the same kind of upheaval that led to Morsi’s elevation in the first place?

  10. oranje says

    Oh, so that’s it. I just don’t have “sufficient information.” I must find a way to subscribe to the same voices in his head, then. Is it an RSS feed?

  11. Rip Steakface says

    Well yeah, but it’s also a reactionary/extreme right thing too. Fascists did so in Germany and Italy – those believed to be colluding with “the enemy” (foreigners, leftists, intellectuals).

  12. says

    I have to wonder what Rush and the rest of the loons at WND are going to do once Obama leaves office and exactly none of the things they predicted have come true. Obama is the boogeyman they’ve built their entire business model around. If a democrat wins in 2016, of course, they will transfer all their crazy gulag theories to them. But if a republican wins, they’ll all have to close up shot and get real jobs!

  13. Randomfactor says

    The way things are looking now, the WNDfectives will be able to rail against the imagined abuses of President Clinton. They could probably just recycle some of the headlines from 20 years earlier.

  14. says

    d.c.wilson “But if a republican wins, they’ll all have to close up shot and get real jobs!”
    I doubt that. President Cruz/VP Gohmert will have us in Iran within a year. Then dissent will be be treason again. Hurrah!

    “Dirty, America-hating, terr’ist-loving hippie. Boo! If you don’t like it, leave the country! The president is doing God’s work! Obey! Obey!”

    Just practicing.

    …sort of like the intoxicant aboard the Titanic who didn’t realize the ship was sinking until it was perpendicular to the ocean surface.

    @1 – I bow down to your brilliant takedown of this grammatical monstrosity.

    He also gets the facts wrong, if he is referencing the story I think he is. In A Night to Remember, Walter Lord’s definitive account of the Titanic sinking, he tells the story of a ship’s baker, IIRC, who was very far from not realizing the ship was sinking. The baker was well aware of the danger and fortified himself several times during the hours the ship was sinking. The baker then waited at the stern, holding on until it was almost in the water, than calmly stepped off and into the water, not even getting his hair wet. With the assistance of a life belt and the large amount of anti-freeze he’d ingested, he was able to tread water near an overturned lifeboat until enough people on the boat had succumbed to exposure to make room for him.

    I predict within a little over three years from now, Obama will finally be forced from office.

    Yes, holytape, but not until more than two months after the people revolt by voting in a new President.

    See my comment on the other post, extremisms converge.

    Re AsqJames @ #10

    Actually, during the depression, there was some sentiment in the Army to institute a military coup d’etat, as it appeared to the officers contemplating this that the civilian authorities were failing to do anything about the situation.

  18. D. C. Sessions says

    Take credit for stopping the “Obama Agenda.”

  19. Moggie says

    I don’t know how intelligent Erik Rush is, but my first thought on reading those paragraphs was “this is how dumb people think smart people write”.

    Rush: We’re Winning!

    He is right, sort of. The ultra rightwing has been slaughtering strawpeople by the thousands.

    The attendant necessity to purge the government at large of communists and socialist elites, both Democrat and Republican,…

    Another win for the wingnuts.

    They have successfully purged all the commies and socialists from the governent and both the Democratic and Republican parties. (Of course, there were almost zero to start with.)

    PS I wondered what a communist Republican would look like. And then decided I didn’t want to know.

  21. jnorris says

    “truckers’ Ride for the Constitution” = a social protest where more reports showed up than protesters.

    ” purge the government at large of communists and socialist elites, both Democrat and Republican, would be the second order of business.”
    Mr Rush, you are suppose to wave a piece of paper over your head while saying this and claim it is a list of all such persons.

  22. freehand says

    Crip Dyke: Not a single one lists “intoxicant” as having a noun-meaning anything other than “a substance that intoxicates”.

    An intoxicant is obviously a person who is intoxicated, just as a supplicant is someone who is supple, an assistant is someone who is an ass, and an elephant is someone who… is an elf?

    Once there was an elephant
    Who tried to use the telephant.
    No! no–I mean an elephone
    Who tried to use the telephone…
    (Dear me, I am not certain quite
    That even now I’ve got it right.)

    Howe’re it was, he got his trunk
    Entangled in the telephunk;
    The more he tried to get it free,
    The louder buzzed the telephee–
    (I fear I’d better drop the song
    Of elephop and telephong.)
