Skip to comments.Rally for Rush (Carbonite CEO tied to MoveOn.org: time for conservatives to fight blacklisting?)
Posted on 03/05/2012 3:25:36 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
................ Carbonite: OK. Now we'll talk Carbonite. And about Mr. McLaughlin of Sleep Number. And two of the co-founders of Legal Zoom.
Carbonite's statement was especially and curiously unctuous, its withdrawal of sponsorship coming as it did after Rush's apology. Here is Carbonite's CEO David Friend:
...Now. Carbonite really deserves some special attention......................
MoveOn.org, America Coming Together and Democracy for America, all three listed here as George Soros funded groups, the latter set up by Howard Dean. Texans for Truth also drew Mr. Friend's support. This group, according to Wikipedia, was set up by MoveOn.org spin-off Drive Democracy.org in 2004. Why? To wait for it challenge then-President Bush's service in the Texas National Guard. The precise same stunt for which CBS fired Dan Rather after documents were discovered to have been forged. The Bush-Cheney campaign said of Texans for Truth that it was "a smear group launching baseless attacks on behalf of John Kerry's campaign that will be rejected by the American people." They were. But that didn't quench Mr. Friend's affection for either the smear campaign or supporting leftist candidates such as Howard Dean, and John Kerry.
And get a load of this. Take a look right here at Ed "Laura Ingraham is a slut" Schultz's site for his radio show. Who is listed as a Schultz sponsor? That's right: Carbonite. Like Rush Limbaugh, Ed Schultz apologized. The difference? If Rush uses the word "slut" to illustrate the absurdity of the left-wing Sandra Fluke's views -- David Friend is outraged. But when Ed Schultz refers in hostile fashion out of the blue to conservative and Catholic Laura Ingraham as a "slut" -- hey, no big deal for Carbonite......

Rush has never made a professional mistake that I have heard on air... he broke his record by apologizing to a slut that called herself a slut by definition. I will NOT apologize!
Well I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell ya.
I hope the people who were talking about Rush throwing us under the bus feel more than a little bit cheesy after reading this.
These liberals and the people on FR who don’t understand are about to get a real big surprise. Rush never says anything without thinking first, and he is a real smart guy.
Can’t wait to hear the start of today’s show.
According to Fluke’s written testimony before the House, she wasn’t specifically asking for $3,000 in contraception for herself.
I think all the government mandates on insurance are a big part of the problem but also do not care for the distortions about her testimony. That is what the left routinely does.
Schultz also apologized but apparently some apologies are accepted and some are “too little too late”
Shame on NEWT and Mitt and Boner and the rest of those GOP weasels for not calling a spade a spade on this “get-Rush” campaign
With her background in domestic violence I am guessing she sees the Catholic church and anyone else who opposes taxpayer provided abortion and contraception as an oppressor of wymyn
Georgetown once again shows its internal rot as a “Catholic institution” that has no standards for individual conduct for its “students”
I agree that her arguments for free contraception for college age single swingers were anecdotal (BUT ABSURD) and not personal, because something about her sets off my gay-dar
Rush should have stuck to his usual “feminazi” term -
oh wait, no all of a sudden that would offend his jewish sponsors
Well, I certainly hope that Rush’s vetting of advertisers gets more stringent...
I have sent a personal note to each company the dropped Rush making them aware of my feelings and loss of and/or potential loss of business.
I never could understand all the conservative talking heads shilling for Legal Zoom. It is, at least in part, owned by that lawyer, Robert Whatsizface, who, along with the black lawyer, lied their soul to a cinder, defending and springing O.J. Simpson. The black lawyer has since gone on to meet his Maker; but Robert Whoozits is still around, making commercials for Legal Zoom. Is there ANYTHING these guys, Rush included WON’T do for money?
Great article. Thanks for posting. I was considering using legalzoom but not any more.
With the fine Backup & Restore provided with my Comcast service, I cancelled my Carbonite.....and now am elated that I did. I back up my files automatically to a small inexpensive USB hard drive, and flip the proverbial bird to Carbonite.
Same here, mine has 3 months to go and I alerted them yesterday to not consider my subscription continued, it will not be.
another alternative to carbonite, but will anyone vet the ownership of this company?
BTW, did the great compassionate obama ever call Rush to apologize after Wanda Sykes-dykes, at a President’s bash at Kennedy Center, wished Rush’s kidneys would fail?
Or did he just laugh and clap?
Help me obi-wan, my memory is dim
I was troubled when I saw the apology. I'm curious now to see if Rush is going to turn this around. After all, he really IS good at this chess game he's got going with the Left. Should be interesting.
Then calling Select Comfort, telling them I will not be buying a 2nd bed from them.
I don’t think anyone will sign up for their service because of dropping Rush,
You see, if Carbonite is a great success, the people will eventually be conditioned to backup all of their computerized data in the way that lemmings follow each other over a cliff.
When that day comes, the “sheeple” will already be conditioned to then hand over all of their computerized data to the new business succeeding Carbonite,,,THE GOVERNMENT online mandatory data storage system!
Conditioning is everything. Little by little, you can manipulate the population by letting them enter the door one by one and the effect is not even noticed until all are in the room.
“Slut” is the left’s term.
Laura Ingraham was called a Right Wing Slut, they have the “slut walk”. They are proud of slut.
Until Rush uses it.
“According to Flukes written testimony before the House, she wasnt specifically asking for $3,000 in contraception for herself.”
According to some of the initial news reports, she was. And she sure used “we” a lot if her testimony was supposed to be about “them”.
Rush uses the absurd to make his point but he got into it a bit deep and sucked all the air out of any other part of the conservative message.
Freedom of religion is crucial but so is winning this election to remove Obama and repair the damage. If conservatism can't hold a place on Capital Hill, nothing we believe in will be safe.
Rush, I might add, took on these advertisers. It's not like they were hiding their affiliations -- Jeffery Lord didn't seem to have much trouble putting this all together. One could say, Rush has endorsed their product and that his listeners by extension, have supported these groups.
NEW WORD FOR SLUT.
When Rush apologized, he had his fingers crossed, which cancelled out the apology.
No Carbonite needed.
I went on that flower Facebook site where they had put up a message about Rush.
They had, last night, over 7,000 comments, running about five to one AGAINST the company and FOR Rush. That’s not counting the “likes” for all the comments vowing NOT to use their product. It was incredible.
And so , hey, you can do this without even getting out of your chair, Freepers. Find these products’ sites/Facebook, and blast them.
They ARE selling a product after all and if we have no power at all we are their customer base else they wouldn’t have been advertising on Rush.
Let our capitalist system do our talking.
I don’t use Carbonite and neither does my family, but they’ve had computer issues now and then, so was looking around yesterday for some alternatives and found the below
For Windows users, heres info on backing up files (I wasnt sure about the process, but you might be):
Microsoft also has a free online storage and sharing called SkyDrive:
Flash drives are so inexpensive these days, that’s always an easy alternative.
So now the left seems to have accomplished:
1. get and keep a socialist in the white house
2. control and redistribute healthcare
3. paint Republicans as the party that hates women and sex
4. drive gas prices over 4.00
5. get the base motivated to come back out and vote all democrat in 2012
I have been using Carbonite at my office to back up radiographs. Before I drop Carbonite I need to research the alternatives. Thanx.
Thank goodness they are gone! Here’s hoping Rush got the Lifelock folks po’ed too!!!
The media has controlled public opinion and so has ruled this country for the last 100 years, the media got Obama elected by lying against Palin and Bush and Republicans: This is why government and socialism have always been growing. The media is responsible for 99% of the problems we have in the U.S.A.
I have several forms of LOCAL backup and to allow someone to have all of my data... while they supply the encryption... and they have the seed key... no way. Rush had better apologize to us today for the apology. Franklin Graham and now Rush... are they threatening their lives?
The big revelation here...
Why is EIB shilling for so many Liberal companies...?
So they can make bigger donations to MoveOn.com?
I think a lot folks are going to feel tricked...
You’d think there would be more of a “buy conservative” ethic...
Apparently EIB never vetted the sponsors before - or chose not to...Bidness is Bidness... but- come-on.org
We did as well and several of these businesses we use routinely. Never again! And Rush, I hope today you come out and say what you really meant to call her! I would place a tea order to hear it!
You beat me to it!
I emailed Carbonite last night cancelling my subscription. Anyone have a recommendation for a good Mac backup?
And my husband used to always send me Pro Flowers so I told him to never use them again and send an email to that effect. Frankly, I’m glad because other than getting flowers there when you ask, they stunk.
So liberals become his advertisers to pull their ads to control his mouth. Sounds about right - like whoever is fighting with millions upon millions, lying their soul away, for a $400,000 job is doing.
Control the masses to succumb to ‘our’ belief in play.
Time for some “blacklisting” of our own?
Starting with Carbonite and the rest of the idiots that
pulled their ads from Rush’s show!
Any word if the slut-like Mzzz Fluke has accepted Rush’s apology?
(google that word)
