(Vanity) Perhaps Rush got the "Breitbart Warning"
Me

Posted on 03/04/2012 6:45:20 AM PST by AdamBomb

So, what if someone told Rush, if you don't stop this now, you are going to get the Breitbart / Jack Wheeler treatment.

We live in a crazy world.

Rush should go on offense monday and start with the obama fraud and forgeries of selective service registration/birth certificate as shown at sheriff arpaio press conference!

I suspect he was told by his lawyer he crossed the line when he used the term Prostitute. Slut is a matter of opinion, Prostitute implies one breaking the law.

I suspect he was told by his partners that he was costing them money. I had a large number of sponsors drop out in a single day, that’s the beginning of an avalanche that had to be stopped.

I don't mean to make this a religious thing, but I will make a religious analogy:

A long, long time ago, the Roman Empire persecuted Christians. They just wanted Christians to bow down and declare the Emperor as a god. That's all. Do that, and you can go home and live your life.

A lot of Christians would not do it. They would not trade Eternity for a few more years of life on this planet. The Romans wouls show them lions, crosses, fires, many unpleasant things and say -- "Just bow down. This can be easy or it can be deeply unpleasant." And many Christians decided to choose the harder path.

I do not understand why, today, someone isn't standing up and saying, "I was visited by an agent of the government. He threatened me. He threatened my family. He mentioned Jack Wheeler, Andrew Breibart. He mentioned JFK. He said I had to do as he said or I would suddenly decide to kill myself. He said that my suicide would be in the papers for a few days but no one would question it. I'm hear to blow the cover off how our government does business."

No one has ever had the courage to say that.

Maybe because their is no conspiracy. Maybe people are just weak. Maybe Rush likes having sponsors and a big income. Maybe he's willing to sacrifice principles so that he can have the lifestyle he's become accustomed to.

Also, just simple economics.

You can’t run a nationally syndicated show without advertisers. Imus learned that the hard way.

If that is the case, the question is does the right have the balls to play in that game too?

By using the term “Slut”, Rush was just using the language of the left.

Between the Huffington Post, DU, the Daily KOS, and countless other liberal websites and hosts, there are literally tens of thousands of instances of those sites and their members calling people on the right “Sluts” (or much worse).

I wonder if any of these advertisers plan to pull their advertising from, for example, the Huffington Post?

Not just political websites and shows. How many of these advertisers sponsors shows like The Jersey Shore, the Real Housewives of XX, etc? These are common terms thrown around on these shows.

All this bluster by the leftist media - while all around us America is heading into the cr@pper.

We are being disarmed, disenfranchised and destroyed.

yes- prostitute is not accurate either

A prostitute demands money from you to have sex with you.

This woman is demanding money from you to have sex with other people

(you dont even get the benefit of the sex you are paying her for)

Well, he did actually have the bomb squad to his place to check out a suspicious package, which was later id’ed as a “business oportunity”.

He must have received the warning you refer to. In fact he led off the Friday show talking about it. I doubt he would ever spend so much time on a suspicious package (but "chilling") that turned out to be harmless if there weren't something else to this story.

To the rats and the MSM, it makes no difference what Rush does or doesn't say. He is evil personified in their eyes and they'll never stop looking for ways to shut him down. Rush executed a narrowly crafted strategic retreat on the 'slut' issue in order to fight on another day.

Behind the scenes, incredible pressures were brought to bear on Rush by his syndicator, broadcast stations and advertisers. While we'd all like to see a constant 'straight ahead' approach, expediency and wisdom sometimes dictates a minor course correction.

1. I have it from a good source Rush had his fingers crossed when he apologized which cancels out the apology.

2. On another subject: I personally thought Jack Wheeler was poisoned, but I never read a conclusion to the case. Maybe I missed it. Can someone please fill me in?

Thank you for any information.

But didn’t Rush add that this makes the Govt her pimp ( or anyone else who behaves like this?) The govt provides this chippy unlimited birth control pills so she can be a slut on the taxpayer dime, therefore making the govt her pimp..It kinda makes sense.

Clear Channel told Rush that he needed to apologize because he crossed the line. Money is the bottom line. They lost a few so so clients that wouldn’t be who they are today without Rush. They didn’t want to lose anymore. I’m as big of a Rush fan as they come but I believe that yelling “slut” left and right lowered Rush down to a liberal level.

“I suspect he was told by his partners that he was costing them money.”

Also, he was probably hearing back from the stations that carry his show that they were taking flack from their local advertisers. Rush has responsibilities to many people and I don’t think he did this apology strictly for his own benefit.

Sorry to hear that Rush was forced to apologize. Funny how creeps like, Bill Maher, Maxine Waters, Henry Waxman, Nancy Pelosi and Sheila Jackson Lee et al. never apologize for their hate speech and lies. Fluke will probably eventually prove to be an Obama operative, who is considerably older than perceived and some other things which prove her credibility is questioned. The bottom line is what should the American public have to pay for sexual play of unmarried people. What’s next on Obama agenda, sex toys, pornography, sexual liaisons, viagra?

She details nothing of the sort...

Its fine to disagree with this mandate...but to characterize her testimony as the “details of here premarital sex life” simply isn’t true.

I think you’re right (regarding the Rush apology). I have to believe there is another chapter about to unfold where Rush will prove the absurdity of this contraception diversion. The apology sure seems like a trap has been baited.

So, what if someone told Rush, if you don't stop this now, you are going to get the Breitbart / Jack Wheeler treatment.

Rush was definitely sent a message. He got a package that was investigated as a bomb, but while it wasn't that, it was very chilling: A commemorative plaque, electronic, that celebrated the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth.

Not very subtle.

Oh??....

Dispute...

1. She is not married.

2. The desire to secure birth control at our expense?

3. Up to 300,000,000 saw and heard these facts.

4. The non-chalantness of said slut would infer that she can admit this without even blinking. So there is enough detail for me.

So, what would you think if your daughter did something like this? Case closed

In Rush’s world, losing your sponsors is nearly as bad as the Breithbart treatment. His show can’t survive without sponsors. Without his advertisers, the left has effectually shut him down. What I worry about, will Rush be “neutered” so to speak and be afraid to speak his mind about anything? Have we heard the last of femiNazis and Barak the Magic Negro?

Oswald was a Soviet agent. Kennedy’s murder was ordered by Kruschev himself. They called it off, but Oswald was self motivated to do it and went ahead anyway.

The KGB disinformation campaign was to blame the new president, Johnson, and the CIA. Nice two-fer there, as The presidency and the CIA would represent the KGB’s two principal propaganda targets.

We conservatives need to get our minds right on this because we love the truth. The John Birchers were absolutely right on this one. Read Programmed To Kill for the true story as revealed by a Top ranking Romanian Spy Chief who defected in 1978.

Not as much inference, as perception. Did you watch the testimony? If she had been meek and mousey, I think the victim card could have been used. No, this looked like one predator of a woman. Very confident sexually.

So the verdict on this woman??? Quoting Drew from the movie Office Space. "Make sure you wear a r____ dude!!!!!"

You mean on March 1st? The same day we learned about Breitbart's death? The same day Joe Arpaio detailed fraud on behalf of Barack Obama?

Why did it make national news? Was this really the first suspicious package that Rush's apparently mega-security operation ever encountered? Listening to Rush, I had the feeling that this shook him up, yet he says the package turned out to be harmless but there was something "chilling" about it. Something doesn't compute.

you’re correct in the way the left uses crude language, and frankly I couldn’t care less that Rush threw it back in their faces. And, I don’t disagree with anything he said about Flucke.But most advertisers want access to his listener base, they don’t necessarily agree with everything Rush says, and they are going to base their decisions on the bottom line, which to some extent Rush must do as well. I’m hopeful that he comes out against this nonsense tomorrow. We’ll see. Our problem is, many if not most Americans no longer think for themselves, they will be swayed by the faux outrage of the left.

Rush wrote a check that his ass couldn't cash.
He was too clever by half and paid the price.
There was much more to this DNC plant's testimony to analyze and critique,
but he went school boyish and came off as a buffoon.

If added to the above threat - "He mentioned if I spoke about this again it would be denied and my wife, brother and anyone else I cared about would meet the same fate" I don't think I'd be courageous enough to come out with it either. It is one thing to take your own life into your hands, quite another to jeopardize that of a loved one. Just my opinion.
