Skip to comments.O’Reilly: Limbaugh Wrong Left Has Won
Posted on 02/26/2013 12:38:38 AM PST by Olog-hai
Fox News host and best-selling author Bill OReilly on Monday disputed conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaughs contention that liberals are the dominant political ideology in the United States.
We are now in a struggle to define America, OReilly said in his Talking Points segment of his top-rated program. The left has powerful agents in the media and pop culture. The right is disorganized and lacks leadership.
The key to changing this malaise in American society is, he said, a charismatic conservative leader who can fight off the media jackals.
That person can turn the country to the right, OReilly said, because America is inherently a place of achievement. Weve always been that.

Rush is right!!!!
They won because we let them. Organizing Conservatives is worse than herding cats.
The Real Reason Sarah Palin Is Not Running for President In 2012 (from Dec. 2011)
Oh God Mesta, don’t say that! I mean just because she pretty much checks off all the boxes required.
Don’t you know she had a TV show once?
Clearly we need a severe conservative to lead us. Not some fly by night that just pretends to be...
The left won 60 years ago.
When they took over the shools.
They are far smarter than we will ever be. They are patient long range planners and are glad to move the ball just one yard each year.
We are all or nothing players waiting for Reagan to rise from the dead ,
We will never win.
No Sarah, no peace.
I like Rand Paul.
I like Ted Cruz.
I LOVE Sarah.
And yeah, I am one of those crazy people that still prays she runs.
“Rush is right!!!!”
Yes he is, and Ororo is obviously not observing the population’s swing to the new Communist ideology and the fact that he can not see the forest for the trees.
Even FOX is swinging rapidly to the left.
I am now watching it less and less.
I don’t trust Paul any farther than I can throw him. Cruz is great so far....may be hope there.
As for Palin, I’m still a cultist ;) But if someone with her ideas and determination came along that ran, I’d look hard at them. Thing is, that person will get all the MSM hate, the bias, the BS, and all the same PDSers turning on them just like they did with her.
So in the end, we are basically doomed. If she runs, the PDSers will once again join their friends at HufPo and MSNBC in derailing her because she is Palin and anyone like her will get the same.
Then they will run to support the next Romney while claiming they are blameless and it’s really us ‘purists’ that are at fault.
My only comfort is when history looks back, it’s not people like us that will be written about poorly.
I keep hearing the left has won. No they haven’t.
Sure they have. But no victory is permanent. Right now they are undeniably in control of the majority of power’s levers. Media, government and public perception.
Note I said perception. I have long maintained that not enough people have felt enough pain. Granted, I thought 4 years worth was enough, but then didn’t we all? Instead, the left went further left and the right went further left with the vast majority of the right actively supporting and voting for the most liberal candidate in GOP history.
Anyone out there arguing that last sentence is an idiot. Because the facts prove it to be true.
So what now? Simple. We support what and who we actually believe in. No matter what. Principles matter. And people who think you uphold principles by repeatedly electing or voting for those who have none deserve what they get.
This mess was created over decades and there is no one person magic bullet to fix it. When enough people feel enough pain from their liberal voting fling, they will seek out a better option. It’s going to take years, not months. But we have to have a better option for them to find.
The problem is simply that the left has reached the logical conclusion that they need to destroy the opposition and the right can't bring itself to think in those terms; it's an asymmetrical battle and until we radically change our approach, it's accurate to say the left has won since it's only a matter of time.
They certainly aren't "far smarter". They're more devious, that's for sure, but definitely not smarter. Not as smart...unless you count criminal cunning as a kind of intelligence
O’Reilly enables the left...he and his Harvard buds are all fellow travelers. Rush is past his expiration date...he has been cowed by threats from the left. We need men and women of courage with SOLUTIONS to our problems. I’m not sure there are any.
As long as teachers/faciitators have access to OUR children; our situation will get worse and worse.
O’Reilly must be basing all this on his liberal background....
Our country is DOOMED because we have killed 55 MILLION BABIES and the Liberals want MORE and MORE and MORE and get ELECTED on their DEAD LIFELESS BODIES......we are DOOMED.
NewsMax’s Todd Beamon kiss up to Fox’s Bill O’Reilly demonstrates the problem conservatives have with media. If you want to get anywhere in this business kick the top dog’s tires (Limbaugh) who knows you might get called up as a guest shot for two minutes on their show .
Not Yet Oreilly says,right now the Battle for the Message is taking place,If the Republicans get spending cuts and the economy improves they can ride that,If Obama wins and gets his tax increases and the Media continues to lie for him and tell the American People that the economy is improving ,Obama wins and he will succeed in his goal of fundementally Transforming the United States as we Careen off the Cliff to total economic collapse and Obama gets to rebuild the Country in his image
Sort of Like the Normal German in the 30s who saw this Guy Hitler running around,Some thought he was a Nut others loved the Guy. Once he got going there was no stopping him and How Many Millions Died? History does repeat itself
Indeed it does. People wondering how so many of histories tyrants came to power need only look around them. Nothing new under the sun. But buy can modern man come up with creative excuses denying it.
I think the words “That’ll never happen here” have been spoken by people in pretty much all conquered/ruined societies.
Look at Mass. where they have passed rules permitting 6 year olds to change gender in school, and the parents are NOT to be told. And no one marches on anything to stop it.
The disUnited States is now a socialist country. After they gut the Second Amendment, they will go after the other nine Bill of Rights. Once the Bill of Rights is removed from the Constitution, they will have their dictatorship. The nation is fast moving in that direction with their Political Correct speech and the other Washington dictates. Thank God, I only have a few years left on this earth and I still have memories of the the wonderful country that is no more.
Limbaugh is right... the left did win. What evidence is there that suggests they didn’t?
Same here... we had a great run though, no? That Reagan era was the best in my life.
I agree.. and the careful incrementalism the left has used to institute these changes has laid the groundwork for Americans to be softened into some sullen false ideation that somehow the country will emerge stronger. It won't, because the forces that control events want this country destroyed.
How about growing up in the 40s and 50s? Now, those were great days.
But why is that? Are we so ineffectual as parents that Conservatives cannot, from the time their children are small, teach them conservative ideals, teach about liberalism and what is wrong with it? i don’t buy this bunk about our children being corrupted by public schools. Mine haven’t been. Granted they have all gone to private schools, but that doesn’t guarantee that the teachers are conservative by any stretch. My son is at Syracuse University, walking around wearing a Don’t Tread on Me NRA tshirt. I sent it to him and he LOVED it. i said it’s going to cause a stir up there and he said I hope so! Conservatives have to stop blaming others for our plight and take the initiative and TEACH our kids what is what. My husband and i have done it and i am not sympathetic to anyone who whines about public schools. you can send your kids ANYWHERE so long as you are teaching them at home what is what.
Same here. Fox has become unwatchable. I simply cannot stand to see whatever leftist moron they have on, screaming over the conservative, insisting that Obama is a god and that we are heartless, stupid monsters. Enough. We now watch TV news selectively, local news only.
I recently posted a challenge on facebook. I asked if any high school students or recent college grads could answer the following questions:
1) Can you quote Nathan Hale?
2)Give the location and signifance of the Old North Church.
3) Give the location and signifance of Lexington and Concord.
I was not even surprised at the number of people that could not answer these simple questions about our history. Even my 50 year old daughter with a masters degree and a CPA and my 22 year old granddaughter with 2 degrees and is a conservative could not answer those questions.
A seventh grade teacher from Arizona replied that she could answer the questions but she is required by the state to teach U.S. history beginning with the civil war and ending with the great depression. I don't know if every state has the same requirements.
It finally dawned on me why they teach U.S. history that way.
The evil white slaveowners were defeated and the evil white capitalists caused the great depression. Therefore the thing that is bad about America is the evil white man.
Wow. A generation of young adults running around embracing socialism, the sodomite agenda, global warming...where did they pick that up? Their parents? Where did they learn to despise Christianity? Why is the current generation so ignorant of history? Why can't they even spell? They can't make change without a calculator. You take YOUR example of success and hold it up as a standard for all else? I agree you CAN send your kids anywhere but most aren't going to do it. In the process; schools indoctrinate our children, and we lose our country. By the way...have your son avoid Jim Boeheim...big-time gun grabber.
My husband graduated from SU undergrad and law school and has several weapons that Boeheim has not grabbed ;). Boeheim needs to concentrate on his basketball team who can’t seem to WIN and were humiliated on Saturday by the faux Catholic G’town Hoyas in front of a crowd of 35K. Yes, i fault Conservatives for not schooling their children in Conservatism, REGARDLESS of where they are educated. The rest of the populace, who cares. But Conservatives need to raise their children knowing the evil of Liberalism. Not everyone has the wherewithal to homeschool full time or to pay for a private Christian education, but EVERYONE can assume their responsibility to make sure they know WHY we are conservative and why liberals are wrong and flat out evil.
Including the ones who VOTE?
...but EVERYONE can assume their responsibility to make sure they know WHY we are conservative and why liberals are wrong and flat out evil.
Couldn't agree more...
By the way...PC doomed the Syracuse sports franchise when they snipped the 'nads' off the 'Orangemen' and transfered them into the 'Orange'. :-)
well what can we DO about the rest of the populace? i am just suggesting that as Conservatives that we raise our children to know WHY we think the way we do. I know that no matter what liberal my kids are confronted with in school, or at a job, or in life, they are going to know why that person is wrong and why we are right. Conservatives who are passive are whom i am complaining about basically. My kids are rabid conservatives, and it’s because they grew up hearing about it at the dinner table, in the car etc. all their lives. Not just that liberals are wrong but WHY they are wrong. They need to understand the underpinnings of our beliefs.
My husband has an ORANGEMEN hat which he got right under the wire from some bootleg website! LOL! we are waiting with bated breath to hear who the commencement speaker will be next year when my son graduates. Bound to be someone heinous. Biden is ubiquitous having gone to law school there [and graduating in the bottom handful], but Hillary’s large behind had been up there to speak at something last school year.
Screaming, bratty behavior is effective in the short term.
Conservativism is only effective when it is grounded in morality. It is never effective as political compromise.
The conservative movement MUST clean up its act. The current Republican leadership does not have a decidedly conservative foundation.
Parents who kowtow to a bratty child are raising a monster. Conservives need to grow up and demand that these bratty democrats toe the line and accept moral principles as controls over their obstreprous behavior. This starts with an end to abortion-on-demand. Killing children for convenience is the most criminal, barbarous kind of obscenity possible.
The so called liberal commitment to vulgarity must be rigidly controlled. Whether it is their commitment to destroy sexuality, money, politics, the environment or religion, they must be stopped. It is not simply the future of our nation at stake. It is the future of life on this planet.
What has she been doing lately that would give any indication she could become a serious option for conservatives? I haven't been keeping up with her. Do you know?
Herding cats is easier!!!
They are fair and Balanced!!! I don’t care if they are fair but I’m tired of the leftist balance!!!
Sadly, I think a Reagan comes along only about once a century.
You give the left too much credit. Conservatives need to turn to God to win, or even survive. Neither liberal nor self-professed conservative will survive if God curses the land, remember.
Oreilly needs to get back out with the people instead of hanging out with elites!!!
We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.br
My (public schooled) 8th grade daughter is entering the National History Day competition. This year’s theme is ‘Turning Points in History.’
‘Roe v. Wade’
Her dad and I are so proud ;) Even if she doesn’t win a thing, I give her the kudos for standing up and doing such a topic.
Just because the devil is empowering the left does not mean that conservatives have to abandon the power that they espousethey have to rely on Him even more.
he's on the hockey team. i asked if anyone ever gave him grief for it, he said not at all. and SU is one of the most lib campuses you can imagine.
She got the inspiration for her topic on the trip we took to D.C. for the March for Life. I think that of all the people who went with us (it was our Catholic parish, but we had several non-Catholics with us), about half of them were under 25. At the March itself, I was blown away by the youth of the crowd. They realize the effects that abortion has had on the world they were born into. As one college-age speaker at the rally said ‘We are not the future of the pro-life movement—we ARE the pro-life movement.’
