Rally for Rush
AMERICAN SPECTATOR ^ | Mar. 05, 2012 | By Jeffrey Lord

Posted on 03/05/2012 6:13:33 AM PST by SWAMPSNIPER

So. Did you hear about Carbonite and Rush Limbaugh? No, you didn't. Not the way you will in a minute. But first? It's time to turn the tables. It's time to stand up to the bullies. It's time to Rally for Rush.

The picture of this supposed spunk bucket calls to mind a possible new advertiser for the Rush Limbaugh Show: "Fluke Beer - when you really need some goggles these are the best you'll ever buy".

Why would this be zotted???

Did you read the article?

The CEO of Carbonite is a guy named David Friend. Turns out Mr. Friend is a huge friend of George Soros.

Carbonite is not as secure as people think.

Any subpoena will crack access to it.

There is no expectation of privacy.

How many remember this disgusting remark by the nasty lesbian sandra bernhard?

Sandra Bernhard issued a blistering warning to Sarah Palin during a performance of her new one-woman show.

The Republican V.P. nom would be “gang-raped by my big black brothers” if she enters Manhattan, Bernhard said. Palin is said to be making a campaign stop in New York next week./

I back Rush 100%. I have contacted carbonite and will soon contact pro-flowers. I will also purchase Blueberry Tea. Rush needs us now. Let’s not let him down.

That is probably the plan. NEVER underestimate RUSH. . .

The Lord works in mysterious ways.

I wonder if Rush was even aware of David Friend's ties to George Soros.

But this confirms what my Spidey Senses were telling me about why Ally Bank hasn't dropped Rush.

Ally Bank was called GMAC before President Clouseau stole GM from its shareholders and gave it to The UAW.

This is what I just sent out to all of my family & friends:

Dear folks,

This is a personal e-mail that I have written, not one that I copied off the internet. I am “getting off my butt” and Doing Something! My personal ‘Doing’ is to spread the truth by sending the articles in this e-mail and to participate in a ‘Rally for Rush’.

Regardless of what you may or may not think of Rush, please do me the personal favor of reading the following two articles:

The first article, “The Real Point of the Left’’s Uproar Over Limbaugh” does an excellent job of detailing “we see the real progressive agenda at work: increasing the power and reach of the federal government and its bureaucratic minions by discrediting and marginalizing any other source of authority over our behavior, especially institutions of moral authority such as churches. “

http://frontpagemag.com/2012/03/05/the-real-point-of-the-left%e2%80%99s-uproar-over-limbaugh/

The second, from American Spectator, shows the extent of thevicious, organized effort to damage Rush and get him off the air. Did you know that the Carbonite CEO is connected to Moveon.org? Read the article for the details about this, some of the other advertisers and the extent to which the Left is organized and operating - I’d say it’s ‘shocking’, but nothing shocks me much any more about the Left.

http://spectator.org/archives/2012/03/05/rally-for-rush/

These are very important reads –please pass them on and if you are so inclined, please let the advertisers who caved to the leftist campaign to damage and silence Rush know what you think about such tactics (details in the 2nd article).

We lost a Conservative Warrior this past week, Andrew Breitbart. He was not afraid to tell the truth and he did it every day. His conviction was that the enemy we are fighting is the media ….. the leftist media. American Patriots, you’ve been handed the torch. Breitbart is in all of us now. We are living in the times described by George Orwell when he said “In an era of universal deceit, the truth is a revolutionary act”.

I say: To cower in silence is no longer an option.

BE BREITBART!!

Regards,
MM

PS - as Newt Gingrich so aptly stated when David Gregory tried to draw him in to the Rush kerfluffle:

“‘I am astonished at the desperation of the elite media to avoid rising gas prices, to avoid a presidential apology to religious fanatics in Afghanistan, to avoid a trillion dollar deficit … and suddenly decide that Rush Limbaugh is the real national crisis this week.”

Finally. Someone with some constructive ideas on beating these people at their own games.

I'll bump to that. Rush should have doubled down and weeded out his weak advertisers. His show is a tremendous venue and he should be actively seeking out CONSERVATIVE businesses, products, and institutions to promote, not waste time with these sissified tools.

One line of my letter to Sleep Train (where we have purchased two beds): "We are amazed that a woman complaining that she wants her irresponsible sexual activities to be sponsored by your customers would turn you away from the man who has brought you many of those customers."

One line to Legal Zoom (a company I have used before):"How ironic that a company founded by one of the O.J. Simpson defenders would take offense at the truth"

Before I am done, I will contact them all.

I thought Snapple left because they were bought out by a big company, and the big company made a business decision (non-political) to pull the ads?

Didn’t matter to me at the time because Snapple went from “great tasting” to “whatever tasting.” Not even as good as Country Time, which is as “whatever” as you can get.

I am outraged at the actions taken by the sponsors noted in the Spectator and I am contacting ALL of them.

I also expect Rush to defend himself. He has the money to do a little investigation into Ms. Fluke (where is Breitbart when we need him, eh?) and should be doing so in order to share with America. I'd bet someone observing her actions for just a few days would find that she spends enough at Starbucks to easily take care of her "social needs" if she skips a few lattes. I also wonder how well off the man or men she enjoys so often can afford to take a little responsibility for their pleasure as well.

Lets get to the facts that many have missed! Everything Rush said last Thursday and Friday concerning this woman is true.
The Media loved not printing or repeating Rush's full statement!

Now the truth about Sandra Fluke! She sounds like a slut to me!

http://www.floridapoliticalpress.com/2012/03/03/sandra-fluke-a-white-house-plant-in-contraceptive-controversy/

She goes “shopping” at the age of 30 (not 23) for a Catholic College that does not have coverage for birth control pills.

She chooses Georgetown at the cost of $65,000 per year, but she can not afford ALL the birth control pills she needs!

She just “happens” to show up in Congress to testify about how she must have the U.S. taxpayers pay for her birth control pills.

The Socialists in Congress call her brave, wonderful, and Obama tells her her parents should be so very proud of her!

Obama’s message to parents? When looking for a college for your daughter, make sure they cover the cost of ALL the birth control pills she will need!

Yes, and I will be referring to her as Sandra Slut Fluke!

From Derek Hunter, TownHall:

"Andrew won many battles, but the war rages on. No one man was going to win it, the loss of no one man will lose it.
Mourn the loss of our friend, but honor his memory by picking up a piece of the fight. He wasn’t going to be able to win it alone, now, as always, it’s up to us to win it together."

Contact the radio station that plays Rush in your area. Just do a google search and email them using their “contact us” link. Ask them to pass on to the advertisers that dumped Rush that you will no longer use any of their products. If they won’t stand by Rush, then they won’t stand by their product.

“...cost the GOP votes...”

For whom??? Oh wait, you must mean Romney...I can dig it...

I would think he’d (Rush) would come out and say he kinda went off the reservation, maybe even sunk to a democrat level of low in the analysis he made of this “vunerable” po little girl...

I bet he says something like that was a regretable mistake on his part...I’ll agree with him on that...

But all these advertizers made a buttload of money off Rush’s audience...And now they are gone...I say don’t let the door hit ya on the asterix on the way out...

I bet a dollar to a donut hole every single one of them will be replaced (by the end of the week), and making 15-20% more off the same core audience by the end of the month...

The GOP is costing itself votes all by itself...
