There is a war on words. It is not just any words that war has been declared on. Who has declared this war and why is it so crucially important?
The left has declared war on conservative speech and conservative speakers. Top of the list is Rush Limbaugh and now there is yet another assault on him.
From the Daily Caller:
“Start listening to Rush Limbaugh.” That was the unexpected message representatives from Media Matters for America and the National Organization for Women delivered to NOW chapter leaders in a secret, narrowly focused strategy session Wednesday night.
In audio of the NOW/MMFA strategy webinar obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, the liberal organizations plotted the best ways to get the radio giant and veritable burr in their collective saddles off the air.
Go after the local advertisers
The key, according to Media Matters online outreach director Jay Carmona, is to target Limbaugh at the local level — specifically advertisers in local radio markets — but with an eye on his national sponsors.
“I will say, just going by the numbers, getting local stations to drop Limbaugh is actually a hard, more long-term campaign than just looking at getting local sponsors to drop,” she explained, adding that they do not need to get the conservative talker off every local station to make an impact.
The catch, however, is that women who are active with NOW and the men who support them — whom Limbaugh often needles as the NAGs (National Association of Gals) and the “new castrati” — are actually going to have to listen to his radio show in order to identify and target those local advertisers.
“The first thing you want to do is, I say, start listening to Rush Limbaugh,” Carmona advised.
“I know this is a really big thing to ask. It’s really difficult, but he is online from noon Eastern to 3 o’clock every weekday, although your local station may air at a different time,” she said, advising listeners to take notes, and then track and contact advertisers that broadcast during Limbaugh’s show.
Carmona recommended that Limbaugh’s opponents should contact the businesses privately — just in case the advertisement was a mistake — and to open lines of communication for potential negotiations.
She added that the only way they can know for sure if a company continues to buy ads on Limbaugh’s show is to “keep listening.”
We need to understand exactly what is at stake here. If the vast left wing socialist conspiracy can take Rush Limbaugh down, they will be able to take down conservative talk radio.
Their goal is simple. They want to remove conservative thought from the airwaves.
Like Socialists everywhere, they hate the fact that anyone disagrees with them because their ideas suck and so do they.
This street works both ways. First, if you know a local sponsor of Rush Limbaugh, call that sponsor and thank them for supporting freedom, liberty and conservative talk radio.
Second, let’s go after MSNBC. There are a lot more conservatives than there are liberals. Let’s identify the sponsors on MSNBC and tell them to either pull their ads from MSNBC or we will stop buying or using their products.
Liberals are bullies. They expect us to simply sit and take it while they hit. There is a lesson we all learn as children. When you hit a bully back, they stop.
I fully support Media Matters, in their effort to monitor the Rush show, to identify his advertisers. It would be best that the vast minions of NAGs and Castrati listen very carefully, lest Limbaugh occasionally slip in a reference to one of the horrible firms that support his efforts.
Inadvertently, of course, they will find themselves subjected to a vast array of facts, figures, quotations and so on, presented in a most confrontational and discordant manner. Some will most certainly be moved to call in, and dispute the information presented.
Yes, I hope that they succeed in mobilizing the millions of MoveOn, SEIU and others to spy on the Rush show. Don't let him get away with anything!
I like your writing and ideas. I will begin to boycott msnbc, the only thing I don't like is that I will have to watch that madness. Likewise the NAGS and MM may convert to being conservatives by listening to Rush--at least some of them.
Norman, Maybe we could just Fast Forward to the commercials, the opposite of how we watch other TV !
Yes it's time for "Idiots" like you to WAKE UP and realize that the Federal Government has no business in our personal lives!!
Vern, what would you do if "Conservatives" like myself showed up in front of your house and protested you views? The SEIU did it to Bankers and violated their Civil Rights!!
You sound too much like a Communist to me! The minority of people that think like you should not be able to have "Control" over the Majority of Hard Working Americans!!
It's time for the Moral Majority to Stand Up for America and American Values!!! The backlash against "Liberal" talk show hosts has only just begun!! I accept your challenge---Together we can Blow Obama and you Commies out of the Government!!
just my opinion---lol------Wake up Vern!!!
did you just call Vern a communist? REALLY?
What is wrong with some people on this site?!? Have we totally lost our sense of humor, or are we just that thick? Do you not spot obvious sarcasm from 10 miles away, really?!?
If you spent even 2 minutes reading, seeing, hearing or getting to know anything about Vern, you'd realize just how ridiculous you sound.
Time for YOU to wake up, "idiot".
Paul, I think you missed what Vern was saying "Inadvertently, of course, they will find themselves subjected to a vast array of facts, figures, quotations and so on, presented in a most confrontational and discordant manner. Some will most certainly be moved to call in, and dispute the information presented"
Please notice facts, figures, quotations, and so on. Vern is saying that Rush will hold his own on those dim wits that attempt to dispute the facts, and figures. Vern, if I am wrong. please explain to me.
Paul, looking at your history I see that you are just barely out of the rookie class, so I guess you might have a little bit of an excuse. Do you not recognize sarcasm? Vern, in case you did not know, is a senior moderator and Assistant Honcho on this site. To call him a communist is like calling Uncle Ronnie a liberal!
I think you owe Vern one heck of an apology...
Paul, Vern was being hysterically sarcastic.
Just when I thought we had found a leftist with a sense of humor....
Another brainwashed liberal, like the communists, they only talk one language, down with the free market system, the same system that allows people like you to flurish.
Gee, George. And I thought of myself as a conservative!
(Sure hope the moderators here don't find me...Rumor is that they don't like overt Liberals here!)
