I have said this before and I will say it again, the only thing the Left learned from McCarthy and Nixon was how to use such tactics to their own advantage. Enemies lists are good and proper when done by a Liberal, don't you know? 'Cause when they do it, "it's different!"
LBJ used those tactics effectively ... against both the right and the anti-war left ... and nobody questioned it. Nixon just copied what was SOP under LBJ.
Rahm&Co went after Rush in the spring and obviously forgot all the teachings of Alinsky in doing it. Alinsky teaches to first pick off small winnable battles that will destroy the allies of the real enemy one at a time.
Then, when sufficient supporters of the enemy have been intimidated or neutralized, pick off the bigger targets. So, to follow the Alinsky method, Rahm&Co should cause trouble for talkradio advertisers.
Selling gold on talkradio and gold at an all time high? Clearly the gold merchants (and not gubmint deficits) have weakened the dollar and hurt America. So the gold merchants are anti-American, unpatriotic and must be destroyed.
Some small town talkradio host did a parody of Obama? Clearly racist and that station’s license should be re-distributed in the public interest.
And you know what? Many sunshine patriots will start to disassociate themselves from each other and start fighting among themselves.
The road to impeachment is parallel to the road to perdition.
Make no mistake,
the way the left would like to “deal with” their political enemies involves incarceration and extermination.
