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.
"Home Depot is smart from a business angle"
In a sense I owe a debt to Home Depot!
In '05, the previous owner of my primary residence and property built a huge cabinet shop, to supply the Depot with custom products. Of course, the competition was Chinese and Vietnam..
Long story short, I bought the place for 1/5 of the total loaned on the property, at foreclosure....
Thank you, President Obama, Fanny May, Home Depot and the American Public! I have one of the finest "hobby shops" that I know of. All for free!
Oh and that story is repeated over and over again. A friend of mine was an officer in an Orange County, CA injection molding company making medical devices. Same fate. Now a deacon in the church helping the poor.
In my book, "Guide 25" (c) 2010 Gerald V. Todd www.lulu.com, I referred to this as "The Fontana Effect." Named when GE closed down their 1,500 employee small appliance plant in Fontana, CA and moved it offshore - naturally getting a $235 million tax credit for the effort.
