Here is a preview from The Limbaugh Letter:
RUSH: But, Dinesh, these professors who left out 90 percent of American history that they teach: do they know they’re lying? Do they know they’re lying to their kids, or do they really believe it themselves? Are they purposefully, knowingly peddling b.s.?
DINESH: The answer is to a degree, yes. But here I wanted to stress that human motives run very deep. Sometimes as conservatives we generously say of our opponents they’re well meaning, but their policies don’t work — and then we give them long lectures about why too much regulation and high taxes and so on are counterproductive.
But what we don’t realize is that the real motives fueling the left are not mere ignorance or just lack of knowing the facts. Rather, they are driven by the deep human motives of envy, resentment, hatred — and even self-hatred. Here’s what I mean by that. America is a society that was established for the entrepreneur. We’re an entrepreneurial, innovative society. The greatest rewards of our society go to people who not only can make things that people want, but envision wants that people don’t even know they have.
The genius of Steve Jobs was to envision something, a product, that you and I didn’t even know we couldn’t live without, and then he made it. Now, Obama can’t make an iPhone. He can’t even put up a website, but what he is good at is, he is a resentment organizer. Someone like him envies the entrepreneur and would like to see a shift of power in society away from the entrepreneur and toward the journalist, the academician, the community organizer — the unproductive class, if you will, of wordsmiths who can’t make things.
So we’re seeing a power struggle. When that is your motive, you’re basically trying to shift the engines of America away from the entrepreneurs and toward the professors, and toward the community organizers, you select facts that ultimately support your own self-interest.
