Limbaugh: Democracy is dead. You're nothing but a gnat.

Responding to a woman caller irate over the Democratic erosions of U.S. Constitutional government under the pretext of health care reform, Rush said today (December 21. 2009):
Wait a second, let me step in here because I want to try to save you some mental energy. You're looking at this the entire wrong way. They're not listening to us. They have the polling data. You're wasting your time e-mailing them. You're wasting your time faxing them. You're wasting your time calling them. This is no longer a representative republic. This is not a democracy. You're nothing but a gnat. You're an inconvenience, especially if you disagree with what they're doing. You're somebody to be gotten even with. You're somebody whose mind isn't right yet. You are somebody that they're going to have to erase. They don't want to have to deal with your opposition. This is why I've been saying for practically my entire broadcast career behind this microphone, the only way to understand this is to understand what liberalism is and who liberals are, radical leftists, and at that point you will understand how truly insignificant you are. [You don't matter to them.] They're not even thinking about what you want and don't want. They're not thinking about how they can best respond to public opinion here to prolong their careers or to do the best for the country.

This is about them. This is about power in perpetuity. This is about ruling you, not governing the country. This is not about we the people. It's about them the political class. They have sought this moment ever since FDR. They have sought total control over this country, over this population, over individuals in this country for years. They have made a mockery of the notion that they're interested in what you think or care about their public opinion. They're not. They know the risks that they're running. That's why they have these slush funds to help with their reelection efforts, to try to help whatever fraud it takes next November with ACORN or what have you. They know that nobody wants this. They know vast majorities don't want this. That alone ought to tell you what we're dealing with and who we are.
This may not be an American version of the Bolshevik Revolution, exactly. As Larry P. Arnn, President of Hillsdale College said in the December 2009 issue of of Imprimis, "I have been making the point lately that people are wrong who accuse the Obama administration of being socialist. I take the president at his word when he says that he has no desire to own the automobile companies. Instead, he wants to control them -- and the rest of us as well -- through a regulatory apparatus oversen by czars and bureaucrats. ... his intentions are good. What is bad is the view underlying them of what human beings are. Rather than looking on us as equal beings with a set nature -- such that none of us should rule another in the way that God rules man or man rules beast -- our political leaders today have been taught to see us as material to be shaped and perfected by experts who have the proper technical training." Thus, the economic policies being proposed these days stem from very poor thinking. But the principles behind them are far worse. For they represent a return to the idea, says Arnn, "that the American Revolution repudiated -- the idea that some are equipped by nature or training to manage the lives of others without their consent." (emphasis added.) Indeed. Very poor thinking, wedded to good intentions. And we all know that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Yes, but the American people elected this group in power. And if the American people can be so easily fooled, so swiftly charmed by an empty suit and fuzzy slogans of "hope" and "change", then what claim have we to continued liberty?

We have ASKED to be ruled like children, docile to the technical experts who plan our birth (if that's allowed), lives, and our deaths.

I think the last comment is authentic and legitimate, though perhaps from a non-native English speaker and intended for another post; but since I'm uncertain, I'm just going to leave it here.

I can't figure out what it means though. Do you know?

Donna,

This is just a wild guess, but there's been a dialogue in the combox to the post entitled "That's so gay!" having to do with whether there's a "gay gene" or not. I take this comment to be a possible response to that question, though I can't make out quite what the author is saying. It looks like it might have been translated from Russian via a mechanical online translator. Or it could just be spam. Who knows?
