(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.

Correction, “he” had, not I had.

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.

The American Spring - not by bullets - but by babble.

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)

When someone gets “Breitbarted”, they don’t get warnings.

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.

I’m wondering why no ID or interviews with the people Breitbart was “talking politics” at the local bar. Or has someone seen them?

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.
