RUSH: It's a sad observation, folks. I'm telling you, a sad, sad observation but it's an observation that I don't think I'm alone in making. It seems like rioting is almost expected now when there is a cop shooting. A cop shooting, period. Don't care about the details. It seems like it's now axiomatic that there's going to be rioting or massive public protests or threats of rioting or threats of unrest every time the cops have to draw their weapons.
Now, stop and think about this. Where are we here? We're in the United States of America. We are in the second term of the presidency of the first African-American president ever elected in this country, a former community organizer -- ah -- agitator, organizer, same thing, who promised and assured us, via hope and change, that none of this would survive the presidency. This kind of thing was destined for the ash heap.
We aren't going to have these kinds of divisive squabbles any longer because the election of the first African-American president would finally mean that we had matured and that we had seen the error of our sinful past. The election the first African-American president, not just that act, but the man himself with his promises and his assurances is going to unify us, the country was going to become one, the nation was going to be loved by all the peoples of the world, and, via hope and change, there would be an unbridled optimism that would spread coast to coast, east to west, north to south, all across this country.
And now look where we are. We're nowhere. In fact, not only are we nowhere near that, we have regressed. We have regressed and we are in the process of regressing, specifically in the area of race relations, but in general throughout our culture. Our culture is being roiled. Our society is being torn asunder. It is happening with happiness on the part of those doing the asundering. They are gleeful and feel like they have an objective to accomplish here by further division, creating angst.
There doesn't seem to be any desire for hope and change to mean anything positive. There doesn't even seem to be any desire to want to try to unify to get along. Is it a coincidence? It seems like whenever the police anywhere -- in Charlotte you have a black chief; you have a largely African-American city government; you have a largely black police force. And I think in the case of Charlotte you have an African-American cop. Why? Wasn't the election of these people and wasn't the commensurate rise in political power for African-Americans to mayoral ties and city councils, wasn't that supposed to also bring about, not an end, I mean, nothing ever ends, but why are things getting worse here?
