Here is a post from an earlier thread that dovetails exactly with what is going on currently with Trayvon Martin, and just recently, Sandra Fluke, and the plot against Rush.
Please try to find the time to read the Spectator article. The last line reads: "Only if we fight back."
"I think the "brains" of the left have come up with a model that's based on military planning. They've predefined a set of pre-planned action packages and, to go with them, predefined "trigger events." They watch the domestic news wires 24/7, and, when a potential "trigger event" occurs, they convene a conference call within a very short time frame and decide whether that event reaches the threshold for one of the action packages. If they decide it does -- and the White House may be involved in the decision -- the packaged plan is put into motion.
I think it's pretty well established that this is what happened in the Limbaugh/Fluke situation. The whole thing, including the calls by local "ordinary citizens" to local radio stations and their local advertisers, was set up in advance. They'd been waiting for Rush to say something that reached the threshold for some time -- years, I think -- and, when he did, their plan was put into action immediately.

And, finally, it's not too much of a leap to Trayvon Martin. The teen's angelic looks as a youngster probably figured greatly in their choice, as those are the only pictures being shown. He is a great photo/poster boy for their agenda.
Let me simply say, in my own defense, that I had not read this article before I posted the comments you show above; I didn’t even know there was such an article until just now.
I don’t like the way the pages are set up, so you have to keep clicking for the next page without a lot of text, and advertisements appear.
Actually, I think this whole thing started with Michael Savage. That is partly what his being banned in Britain was all about. He was just an easier target than Rush. JMHO
I think they really wanted someone to jump on her name and slip up and and drop the “L” with the way the left was pronouncing it and saying it should be pronounced.
I think Fluke should be pronounced like Duke but with and LF. The left insists that it is pronounced like Duck but with and Fl. They hoped Rush, Hannity or someone else would use the left’s favorite profane word and they would try to get them banned for that.
To their chagrin, Rush and others didn’t fall for that trap. Rush called Fluke out for wanting to be paid for sex, and the left then went for a secondary attack.
-—nonetheless, Rush walked right into it and kept on flailing—after the first day even I wondered what was wrong with him to keep dwelling on Fluke-—
A plot that failed very miserably. In fact these stupid plots fail the vast majority of times
They waited 3 weeks to try to shut down Rush, and to scrub records, and let Zmans broken nose and cracked skull heal.
"Is this still America?
Only if we fight back."
Another “Get Whitey!” moment brought to you by Leftists everywhere including the Leftists at FR!
Well . . . duh!
Implicit in the right to free speech is the right to hear speech that we choose to hear. In the marketplace, the people have declared their desire to hear Rush Limbaugh’s speech.
Media Matters thus becomes the agent of the attempt to stifle free speech. Aren’t there laws against interfering with contractual relationships?
The plot failed. Apparently.
Obama was quick to call Sandra Fluke.
When did he call Trayvon’s mom?
Media Matters needs to lose its tax status.
It’s violating the law.
