<<< SEE LIVE POLL NUMBERS!
I figured that title would help the name calling lefties get warmed up with punchlines.
I have been around the web and pretty much every leftist website is a collection of name calling and hate.
The irony is that they call Rush Limbaugh Fat, ignorant, drug addicted…etc and they do it in the name of stopping hate speech.
At what point did spineless hippies become so angry?
Jeff Katz once pointed out that in the absence of a good argument based on facts you can count on liberals to call names. We are witnessing this truth.
The truth is that most of the name callers have no idea what Rush’s show is like. I have been a listener of all sorts of talk radio since age 9, starting with WHAM in Rochester, New York. The truth is that any American of any viewpoint that listened to a solid 3 hour block of Rush would have a new understanding of him.
Rush’s appeal is being “arrogant and cocky” assuring the world that he is “running the nation” in jest.
A person not looking to distort this will quickly see that his is exceedingly patient, polite and welcoming to every caller of every viewpoint.
All personal feelings aside, there is a bigger issue at hand here.
Free speech is not something to be debated in congress, it is not something to be dispensed in the Senate.
Free speech is not something you can attack a person’s livlihood over because you disagree.
This article by Joseph Farah says it better than I will be able to explain:
“Rush is a big boy. He’s got plenty of clout and a large megaphone. He can take care of himself.
In fact, from my vantage point, he is making monkeys of Harry Reid and the Senate 41 who signed their names to a letter designed to intimidate Clear Channel, the network that carries the largest talk show in America.
But writing about this controversy I am. It’s not Rush who needs defending. It’s the First Amendment.
What we are witnessing in this matter is another shot across the bow by an arrogant group of petty, wannabe tyrants who would, if they could, use the coercive power of the state to stifle all dissenting views.
They would do it under the rubric of “hate speech” legislation. They would do it with the rationalization of “fairness” and “accuracy” – two attributes they wouldn’t know if they tripped over them. They would do it in the name of campaign finance reform. In fact, they would do it without any excuse whatsoever.
I’m not going to bother explaining how Reid and his accomplices are smearing Rush and accusing him of saying things he never said. No one can explain it better than Rush himself. After all, it’s not a matter of opinion what he said. His words are heard by millions. There are recordings, transcripts. Nevertheless, to show you the kind of people we’re dealing with in Reid and his henchmen and henchwomen, they feel perfectly at liberty lying about what the biggest star in talk radio said and what he meant.
On one level, it’s all so ridiculous.
But, on another level, Harry Reid and Hillary Clinton and the rest of the Senate 41 are doing us all a favor.
They are tipping their hand. They are showing us the future under their rule. They are telling us what they are going to do.
Bigger Than Rush Limbaugh
