Excerpt Of The Day: Why Are Republicans Supporting The Amnesty Bill

“You might wonder, why are the Republicans doing this? I’m going to get into this in great detail as the program unfolds. There are different reasons for different Republicans, depends on who you’re talking about. I once told you that you could legalize rape in this country if you simply called it the Civil Rights Act of 2007, because nobody on Capitol Hill’s got the guts to vote against anything that claims to be broadening or creating civil rights. It’s codeword. What’s happening here is that the proponents of this — and it’s not new. They’ve actually been laying the groundwork for this.

“If you oppose this, why, you’re a racist! Why, you’re cold-hearted. You’re cruel. You’re mean-spirited. You don’t like people of color,” and, of course, you start telling an elected official that he’s a racist and a bigot and anti-Hispanic or whatever, he’s going to turn on a dime, because the last thing in the world he wants or she wants is to have that said about them, and to show up in a campaign ad the next time they come up for reelection. Then you have people like Senator McCain. I’m going to just read this, and see what I have very quickly here with McCain. I’m going to read it. McCain said, “We can and must complete this legislation sooner rather than later. We all know that this issue can be caught up in extracurricular politics unless we move forward as quickly as possible.” Now, that is unbridled, unknown arrogance. Can I define a term for you here? When he says, “We all know that this issue can be caught up in extracurricular politics,” that means you — YOU — can stop this, the American people. You start debating this, and you are “extracurricular politics.” What that means is, “We in the Senate, we in this exclusive club, we are not going to listen to you. We don’t care what you think about this. You are extracurricular politics. We gotta move forward as quickly as possible before you people find out what’s in this bill and get really mad and stop it.” It’s too important.” — Rush Limbaugh
