Dr. Laura, the Progressive Liberal Democrat Terrorists have won
Creating Orwellian Worldview ^ | 8/19/10 | alaphiah

Posted on 08/19/2010 7:53:54 AM PDT by Alaphiah123

Why is Dr. Laura quitting her radio show? Dr. Laura has been terrorized by Liberal terrorists, you think I’m exaggerating? I’m not. Liberal terrorism has embedded itself into the American culture and it is as real as Islamic terrorism.

Dr. Laura told Larry King that she is quitting her radio show because, “[Liberal terrorists] try to silence you. They try to wipe out your ability to earn a living and to have your job. They go after affiliates. They send threats to sponsors.” That sounds like terrorism to me! (see 4:09min video)

You know, when I started in radio, if you said something somebody didn't agree with and they didn't like, they argued with you. Now, they try to silence you. They try to wipe out your ability to earn a living and to have your job. They go after affiliates. They send threats to sponsors.—Dr. Laura

A similar situation occured down here in Florida.

Barbara West, of WFTV Orlando recently was moved from a prime time Anchor position to noon anchor against her will. She Asked Joe Biden some VERY pointed questions a while ago, and is now being terroized as well.

This is UN-believable.

I would have a lot more respect if she just said she is tired of doing this after 30 years, instead of whining about people trying to silence her then giving them what they want by quitting.

She’s taking herself off the air.
No one else is...

This reason for ‘quitting’ doesn’t hold water with me. Rush has been constantly attacked by LIBs for 20 years and he’s still the most listened to guy on radio and going strong. My mother used to listen to Dr. Laura, but she told me that lately Laura’s behavior and ‘values’ (not sure what she means) have been very ‘off’ and she doesn’t listen to her any more. Any other thoughts?

I’d guess she was looking for some excuse to quit.

Loads of people here on FR jumped all over Dr. Laura. here whole spiel is personal responsibility and people were bashing her here. She did a show on how black people can use the N word everywhere and she cannot. This is what set it off.

Ask Joe the Plumber what happens when you question your leftist masters...they send goobermint employees to look up your private records. (then they get a slap on the wrist)

And remember the shots fired at the wife of Lou Dobbs? After many, many years on CNN....gone.

Please pray for Glenn and everyone attending on 8/28.

I am not ‘buying’ this story. If ‘they’ can do it, ‘we’ can do it. It should balance out. Why does it so often seem that ‘they’ have the stronger, more persuasive forces? Is it because ‘they’ are willing to break the law, or, at the very least, push the law to the limits?

“they argued with you. Now, they try to silence you. They try to wipe out your ability to earn a living and to have your job. They go after affiliates. They send threats to sponsors.”

...I was a talk radio host up until 2003. Had a brush with CAIR, La Raza and many local liberal politicians. What I said, “hurt their feelings” and “shouldn’t be tolerated”. Because of weak-kneed management and the continuing threat of constant moving due to shifts in the radio market I’m in Real Estate now for the sake of my daughters.

Michael Graham got the boot out of DC talk radio because of pressure from CAIR and comments he made. Factual comments as were mine. Saul Alinsky baby.

I can understand why she wouldn’t want to put up the BS intimidation of her sponsors/employer, etc.

I CANT understand why she apologized for using N——R on her radio show. Her point was accurate and her advice to the calling about being a whiney oversensitive baby was spot on.

If you won’t stand up for yourself, nobody is going to stand up for you.

I think that, when you reach a certain age, it is simply not worth the time/energy/resources to continue to fight these kinds of “battles”. I don’t blame her.

What’s sad is there are so called Freepers on this site that are too blind to see it.

Bill Maher was right Americans are stupid.

Sadly, now many "sensitive" conservatives are playing this Aliniskyite "feelings" card by demanding the violation of the private property right of an owner to building a mosque on his own land.

I’ve only had the misfortune to hear Dr. Laura’s show twice, while I was on vacation in Alaska, and I thought she was an utter nasty bitch toward people who were truly suffering. Why anyone would call her, I’m not sure, but I say good riddance to bad garbage.

Some people can't take the constant barrage of bashing and harrassment, some can. Apparently, Dr. Laura is a can't.

I can't criticize her for it. I don't know if I could take it either.

Boo hoo, Laura. Your enemies are vipers. Did you expect them to nuzzle up to you and lick your hand?

This war is brutal and about to get worse. Those with no stomach for the fight had better quit the front lines and head for the rear. It will take a thick hide to survive what’s coming ...

I’m surprised at the negative comments on this thread. Dr. Laura may sound nasty on her program, and you certainly don’t call her if your simply looking for a shoulder to cry on - but she is a staunch conservative, who does a lot for conservative movements, and gives sound advice while keeping her program entertaining.
I listen to her a couple times a week, and she is usually spot on, with telling people to do what is right, and taking responsibility for their own actions.
While you may not like the delivery of her message, the guts of it is 99.9% spot on.

There may be some truth to her story. Remember with all his influence Limbaugh lost the Florida Orange juice ad money ostensibly due to angering the Sodomites.

Over the years Dr. Laura has worked hard to get others kicked off the air. I don’t believe Howard Stern, one of her intended victims, ever called for her to be taken off the air.

Fact is Dr. Laura was burned when she stood up to the homosexual nazis and was devastated by the lack of support from conservatives and her own Religion.

I figure the saying twice burned twice shy is appropiate in this case.
Good regards to you,
AL

So what you’re saying is she couldn’t actually handle being a caller on her own show, as she’d have to take what she doles out!

I haven't heard her radio show in years, so I'll just assume that what you say is true. Last time I heard her, she could get pretty rough with people.
