Heart And Soul

Why does the left hate Limbaugh so much?

It’s not just that he eats their lunch in the marketplace (markets have no meaning to the left); it’s not that he “dumbs down” the American people (a Pew study last year showed that…:

…Limbaugh’s audience is often underestimated by critics who don’t listen to the show (only 3 percent of his audience identify themselves as “liberal,” according to the nonpartisan Pew Research Center for the People and the Press). Recently, Pew reported that, on a series of “news knowledge questions,” Limbaugh’s “Dittoheads” — the defiantly self-mocking term for his faithful, supposedly brainwashed, audience — scored higher than NPR listeners.

So intelligence doesn’t matter to them either.

No.  It’s because Limbaugh is the one nationally-prominent ideological conservative who is unapologetic on the subject,and has the capability of leading people – as opposed to the party – back to where it belongs.

Todd Huston notices just how wrong that is:

I am through with Limbaugh’s supporting the long tradition of rugged American individualism, done with his harping on free trade, and up to here with his going on about the Founders and our American character. I am worn out with his bellicose talk of stopping terrorism, and so done with Limbaugh’s high profile as one of the most listened to conservative advocates in the country that I could just spit. I simply don’t want this Limbaugh character to be the sole voice of the GOP. Stop it now. Make it go away.Instead, it would be nice if just ONE of our actual, purported Republican politicians would be the voice of the GOP espousing all the conservative ideals that Limbaugh so eloquently expounds upon day in and day out. Wouldn’t it be grand if just one guy with the guts to back up the rhetoric with a voting record would become the voice of the party of conservatism?

Liberals have their Ted Kennedys and Nancy Pelosis that do no compromising. They have their “Baghdad” Jim McDermotts that cavort across the globe advocating for murderers and tyrants the world over. They’ve had their presidential candidates “reporting for duty” that have in the past been key members of committees advocating for putting our own soldiers in jail and indicting Americans for faux war crimes. For that matter, the left even has an actual ex-president that runs to the support of every tin-pot dictator in the world pretending at being a diplomat.

The left is unapologetic for its support of Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot, the biggest mass murderers in history. They are resolved to turn our foreign policy over to foreign bodies like the UN. The left is four square against freedom of religion and keen to remove uncounted numbers of our Constitutional rights from us. They hate capitalism, property rights and are against open debate in our schools… yet they say so proudly and their politicians cultivate voting records that reflect those beliefs.

There’s no “compromise” there. The left knows that politics ain’t beanball.

The Obama Administration is just like Lori Sturdevant; they want their Republicans to be nice and wishy-washy and pliable.

They want a party full of Chuck Hegels and Ron Erhards – worthless “moderate” vermin (politically speaking) who are of no use to dissenting from the majority agenda.
I figured before the election that Obama would overreach on things like the “Fairness” Doctrine, measures to silence opposition.

In my wildest dreams, I didn’t think he’d do it this fast.

I hope he continues.  He’s clearly been reading his own press; he thinks he’s invincible; that he can get away with anything.

  1. “Now, let me school you on politics. The smart people are in charge now. We know what’s good for the country. We know what’s good for you. So sit back, relax with a nice bowl full of Slim Jims and watch the 700 Club. The uneducated ravings of backward authoritarian reptiles like yourself are no longer translated into public policy. ”

    The problem is that some of those on the left actually believe this. The best part is the “authoritarian reptiles” ironically buried in the middle.

  2. I find anyone, who INTENTIONALLY goes out of their way to enrage anyone, for the pure simple reason of entertainment, is, by definition, hate-filled.
    This has to be the dumbest statement Flash has made on this blog. Does Limbaugh do what he does for ‘the pure simple reason of entertainment’ or does he do it to influence public policy? If he does how is what he does different from Franken’s Air America gig? If he doesn’t how is that different from Franken’s Air America gig?

  4. Sheesh. This one is easy, Mitch. Rule 11. “Rule 11: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it.”

    The reason that the left (among others) use Alinsky’s Rules is that, by and large, they’re effective as a way to gain power and influence. And they’re easier to digest than Sun Tzu.

    And I do say “among others.” When Newt Gingrich was the most successful and effective backbench bombthrower in US legislative history, you could practically watch him go down the checklist during Special Orders.

    (No, Flash, I’m not saying that the left in this country are a buncha commies who secretly pass Alinsky tracts around. The reason that Alinksy’s rules work is that they’re a pretty good description of reality. Tech is tech, and a bunch of us — not a communist in the bunch, although definitely some liberals as well as the conservatives who carried most of the weight — used them to very good effect to repass the MCPPA in 2005; Skogie knew damn well what hit him, while it was hitting him, and there wasn’t a damn thing he could do about it except lie and blame the NRA.)

    The trouble that the left in general and Obama (and Pelosi and, to a lesser extent, Reid) in particular have run into is Rule 10, and, yes, Rule 11. Nancy Pelosi and her flying monkeys are finding that out right now. Obama will, as well.

    And, all on that, I probably should write a blog entry, rather than take up Mitch’s electrons here.
