A Word On Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh has been gone about a week and the press seems obsessed by calling him hate-filled or divisive. He’ll live on rent-free in their minds.

First off, no one has probably done more for the conservative movement than Rush Limbaugh. But there are some consequences for that kind of success. He was targeted by the Left’s smear machine for decades. It’s what happens when you are effective.

The steady drumbeat from the media is calling him hate radio and divisive, polarizing. Only by the Left’s terminology and standards.

So telling the truth about the Left, their agenda and tactics is hate? Exposing what the Left is doing is divisive? Talking about issues and policy is divisive? The DNC has no patience for anyone truth-telling on the airwaves.

Rush could have been the original cancel culture target. They wanted nothing more than to remove him from the air, shut him up and destroy him. They couldn’t. He thrived on their efforts and it fed into his talk operation. Certainly the Left will be on the lookout for anyone rivaling his reach and popularity. Yes, he was a phenomenon.

But one has to understand what came before Rush: The Fairness Doctrine. That was the policy that forced airwaves to give “equal time” to issues and politics. As usual, the Left found a way to use that to shut down conservative opinion or ideas. The media would say they could not give equal time to the other side, so effectively it cancelled conservative speech. In effect, you were limited by your opposition’s inability to present another side.

The effect of that policy worked the same as their silencing agenda. They use social media now to do the silencing. There is no fairness. Equality is the last thing the Left wants. They want and demand a stacked deck: institutionally, culturally, and in the airwaves.

With Rush, they could have none of that. He wasn’t going to give them a minute of peace. He was probably enemy number one for that reason. The Left despises competition. They resent being challenged by the truth. And they certainly hated any idea about the numbers of Rush’a audience.

But yet in such an environment Rush Limbaugh flourished like wild flowers.

Just an aside, I remember back about ’92 a friend from Kansas City gave me Limbaugh’s book. He said this is the guy to watch and listen to. I started reading the book and realized this guy had the same ideas I had. For the first time the issues he would talk about made sense in a sea of political chaos. But the very best part was to realize there were a lot of people out there, almost a limitless amount, who agreed and felt the same way. And we were not going away. That is the way I remember it anyhow.

So now there are over 20 million Limbaugh’s who are out there. They are not alone or isolated. He started the ball rolling. But the Left saw the same thing with Goldwater and then Reagan before. They at least knew what it meant for them. If imitation is a form of flattery, the Left tried to duplicate it but couldn’t make it work on Air America.

I’ll miss Rush, but never ever forget him.

Here we go with Dems’ mind games

Rush Limbaugh puts it in stark terms. He’s talking strategy which is what this is all about.

I’m Getting Nervous About All These Calls for Trump to Unify with the Losers

November 10, 2016

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m getting nervous. I am already getting nervous. I know it’s early. I’m not getting nervous because of anything I’ve heard President-Elect Trump say. I’m getting nervous because of things I’m hearing other people say, things totally unnecessary. And I want to take some time today to try to explain why I’m nervous and destroy some myths that seem to always pop up after elections about unity and crossing the aisle and working together and almost apologizing for winning.

I’m sick of it. I’m fed up with it. I have watched it happen for now 29 years, and I’m not gonna sit here and stand or sit mute while it happens again. We have been governed against our will for the last eight years. The Democrat Party — and nobody saw this, folks — because everybody was so focused on two people, Hillary and Donald Trump. Nobody, I mean nobody until after it was over, had any idea what had really happened.

We should have known it because we’ve been chronicling it. I’m talking about the demise of the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party since 2010, the midterm elections in 2010, they lost 900 seats in that election in the House, in the Senate, go to governorships, mayors, town council, if you go all over the country, they got a shellacking. We now know that if Donald Trump had run for president in 2012 using the exact data he got versus what Obama got in 2012, Donald Trump would have beaten Obama in 2012, if you take the data from this election and measure it against what Obama had.

“And we also have the plummeting fortunes of the Democrat Party to back it up. The Democrat Party happens to be the receptacle for anti-Americanism in America today. If you don’t like America and if you’ve got problems with America, that’s where you go. You go to the Democrat Party. It is undeniable. Now, I warned everybody about this rioting. I warned about it constantly. I want you to hear, because, folks, it isn’t real. I am begging you to ignore it. Do not let it affect you. “

That is enough to open the can of worms. I am sick of it, too, but that doesn’t seem to matter. I’ve been watching this for years wondering just how far Democrats will be allowed to push their agenda? I think we now know. It came to a screeching halt, at least for the moment…only for the moment.

Like clockwork, Dems now shift to try to interfere in the Republican party. They have ruined themselves, and failed at their own mission. But suddenly they are advisers to Repubs and we should listen to them? I know, it is absurd but this is what they do. They want to do anything to detract from the train wreck in the DNC. I mean anything. And bringing Republicans down, after a win, is a huge objective they can all get behind.

Now Clinton campaign staffer, Jennifer Palmieri, says it was Comey’s fault Hillary lost. She cannot take any responsibility. Their campaign accepts no blame for the outcome. Next they’ll blame voters. Hillary the failed human being and candidate shall not be blamed. They want Dems as passionate about her corrupt record as Mother Teresa’s.

For years they have been beating Repubs over the head about the autopsy of the Republican party. I was sick of that. But have an introspective investigation of the DNC and Hillary Campaign? No, can’t have that. “Even Republicans said you need to do __.”

Now Democrats are pushing the idea of Keith Ellison as DNC Chair. Did we mention because he is a Muslim? Think about it, they ousted a Chair literally on the eve of their convention because of a scandal. So they replaced her with the pillar of integrity Donna Brazile, Clinton loyalist.Then there was the corrupted candidate herself.

Problem is they’ll focus their criticism on Republicans. We don’t play that BS. And no one is going to appoint them, or Hillary, as the “tolerance czar.” I can’t wait to see Dems invisible autopsy. They promised people booty for votes. Now the protracted chase and foreplay is over, Democrat stooges are aghast at reality – no booty. Take it out on Republicans.
