Aside from the fact they’ve pivoted the debate from a First Amendment issue to a see, it’s an anti-women/anti-women’s health issue (more about this in another post).
Let’s talk about the coercion, intimidation and threats, shall we?
Liberals launched an outright boycott campaign of Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors and harassed Clear Channel Communications to shut Limbaugh up. Or, did they do it to just to force an apology? No matter, the apology has been met with, “Ha, ha, you call that an apology?”
PS. they had to distort the truth and context to do it (Rush attacks all women – says they’re all sluts). You’re not a Liberal if you let the facts get in the way. When it comes to the right, the left can’t put anything into context. How many lude and inappropriate jokes or comments do comedians or commentators get away with attacking right leaning people in the news?
Good for you guys!!! Liberal ideas, so good they have to be mandated!
Sounds like a win/win for Liberals!
End of story?
Let’s Not Negotiate With Those Using Threats to Intimidate or Coerce
Let’s do some INDEPENDENT analysis, shall we?
42% of the population are Republican
38% of the population are Independent
20% of the population are Democrat
With those numbers in mind – a hypothesis – What would happen if you take a Liberal demonized Organization that Liberals have forced compliance to their will…like Susan G. Komen foundation that wanted to pull donations to Planned Parenthood…just for an instance.
What if the RIGHT did unto others as others have done onto them?
We all know the good work the Komen Foundation has done for Women’s health and the fight against Women’s cancer…right?
Suppose the RIGHT launched a counter attack and boycotted the Komen foundation? POOF…no more Komen. The left withdraws support (because they forced the Foundation to provide donations for abortions). Then, the RIGHT withdraws support from the Foundation for kowtowing to the unethical whims of the left.
We would sacrifice a great organization (maybe many) but we would SHOW that we will NOT negotiate with terrorists. How many great organizations we lose would be entirely left up to the Libs…depending on how many they wish to attack. The same tactics are used against talk show hosts, Conservative personalities and Conservative women, Conservative politicians…well, they go after anybody RIGHT of Liberals, don’t they.
Sometimes you just got to get down in the gutter and fight fire with fire. Sometimes it’s imperative to put our Liberal hat’s on and win the war on their terms, since the only way they can win is to fight R E A L DIRTY.
I’ve only provide a couple of organized attackers (examples above, with links). The King of attack is Media Matters – going after and trying to bring down the whole Fox News network. Media Matter has also indulged in a current assault on Rush Limbaugh and his advertisers, its no accident; it’s all part of a plan: Media Matters Project 2012. And it has nothing to do with balance, or fairness.
Even though John F. Kennedy’s inaugural address “Civility is not a sign of weakness” has long gone by the wayside, I think it’s in the Right’s best interest to stop climbing and abandon the moral high-ground because the country is no longer treading water, it’s rapidly sinking. It’s like pulling your goalie in the last-minute of the game to increase the odds for a goal.
Calls for Limbaugh’s sponsors to pull their ads from his show rocketed through cyberspace, and several companies bowed to the pressure (listed below). I think this is a worthwhile campaign.

I’m very disappointed, Sleep Number Beds buckled under the pressure of a minority ultra-liberal group to pull advertising from Rush Limbaugh. You should realize, although vicious and vociferous, that portion is only a fraction of the Democrats who only make up 20% of the American population. 20 million Rush Limbaugh listeners understood the context of his statements. I will be campaigning to counter this attack and every one hereafter.

There’s also another counter attack being waged here: http://istandwithrush.org/thankyou.html
