Audio Rush Limbaugh Explains 'Ashamed Of My Country' Comments: 'The Left Has Beaten Us'

Radio Host Rush Limbaugh explained here his use of 'Ashamed Of My Country' Comments: 'The Left Has Beaten Us': - Rush Limbaugh knew that his radio show ratings would be up after his controversial comments from Thursday about being "ashamed of my country" for the first time. He welcomed his new listeners by saying, "I realize that many of you tuned in today wanting to hear more of this... You wanted to hear more about it, and I haven't really discussed it yet and you're probably angry, and I want to tell you why."

This was the admission I have been waiting 20 years to hear from Rush Limbaugh, or thereabouts. I've been waiting ever since the strangest phone call I've ever heard on his show.

Rush took a call from a teacher in Illinois named Karen one Friday on the Open Line show. She depressingly declared to him that the country is doomed because the "liberals" control the schools. And it is "inevitable" that they will win, because they control what future generations are learning. She said the public schools and universities teach the Left agenda by the numbers. And the teachers themselves are taught to be "change agents" and brainwashed themselves.

Karen resonated with me, because my wife is a teacher, and I also. And I listened to her and I knew she was telling the truth, even if her conclusion about the outcome was premature.

But Rush wasn't impressed. He dismissed her flippantly with the hubris characteristic of his confident stance at the time, with little more than a sigh. He told her glibly that "She wasn't getting enough sleep at night" and thus, she was "stressed out and over-whelmed"

He told her he was going to send her a free mattress (he was hawking them at the time for Select Comfort). And that was the extent of his analysis. I'm sure that analysts on the Left never expected that response, given their mantra that Rush is a "fearmonger". Well, he certainly didn't take advantage of that dire rhetorical softball that Karen pitched him that Friday. Au Contraire.

I always wondered if she accepted the gift. I would have told him thanks but no thanks.
