The Left's eWar On Rush
Breitbart ^ | 3/5/2012 | Dan Riehl

Posted on 03/05/2012 5:20:13 PM PST by combat_boots

As part of their 2012 battle strategy, the Left is busy spinning myth from fiction and pressuring advertisers to abandon the Rush Limbaugh show. Despite an apology from Limbaugh, AOL suspended advertising today, making it sponsor number eight to do so.

What is now obvious is, this is not about civil discourse, as some would allege. One can find instance after instance of television and radio hosts on the Left making the same comment Rush did, and much worse, against Sarah Palin, Laura Ingraham and other conservative women, yet, there was no outrage from the Left then, supposedly in the defense of women, none at all. To her credit, Kirsten Powers, no far-right ideologue, was honest in pointing that out.

Yet, even today, alleged victim Sandra Fluke went on television's The View and suggested people should get their information from Media Matters. That, as much as anything, should tell you precisely what's going on here.

AOL advertised on Rush? Never heard one. Maybe web banner ads?

Nothing is going to happen to Rush. The left is always bitching about something.

I’m surprised Rush lowered himself to AOL’s level in the first place. Nothing says loser like @aol.com.

Sooner or later (sooner the more we tell them) those advertisers will realize that they’d have made more fans with real spending power if they’d stayed the course. I’ll be listening to his ads for the next month to see who’s NOT jumping ship or jumping on board to fill newly open slots. Already have the short list of quitters with whom I shall never do business again and who can all go to Hell. Cowards.

Yeah, if they had bucked the assault on Limbaugh I would have bought flowers and berries today, fo sho.

As it is, I’m done with them. The rest of the wussies I’ve never done biz with. But sod them anyway.

Rush had them throw him in that brier patch. Don’t doubt the man, hide and watch.

He sure did. They laid the bait out there and that fat gasbag took it hook, line, and sinker.

Bailey’s Buggy Whips and Smith Bros. Blacksmiths are pulling their ads.

Acme Telephone Operator Training School and Cooper’s Butter Churn Manufacturing are considering action as well.....

I think Rush should STOP talking about it. Hannity and all the rest too. That would make it go away.

I received loan literature from quicken today.
I called them and told them to cancel my name from their
mailing list as they had cancelled Rush.
They said they had only suspended advertising with Rush,
so I asked that they suspend me also, and add me back when they resumed with Rush.
They acted kinda upset.
Too bad.
What goes around......
