Limbaugh uses Twitter to hit back against MMFA
The Daily Caller ^ | 3/20/12 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 03/20/2012 1:42:38 PM PDT by Nachum

Last week, conservative radio talker Rush Limbaugh began to utilize Twitter as a means of mobilizing listeners against attacks aimed at him for remarks he made about Georgetown Law student and so-called contraception activist Sandra Fluke.

Limbaugh had previously resisted calls for him to use Twitter. However, in the wake of the Fluke controversy he reversed course and is now promoting his Twitter account by offering new followers the chance to win the recently released version of the iPad.

During his Monday broadcast, the conservative talker previewed a tweet showing the “astroturfing” efforts of self-proclaimed anono-activist “Shoq” and Media Matters operative Angelo Carusone, who was behind the 2010 campaign against former Fox News host Glenn Beck’s advertisers,

“What it is — is basically a website among these people who are Astroturfing advertisers, trying to convince the advertisers that they’re hearing from angry consumers when they’re not,” Limbaugh said. “The advertisers are hearing from coordinated Democratic operatives, under the guise of Media Matters, ThinkProgress and some others.”

Do these delusional left wing lunatics really believe that they can take Limbaugh of the air? I am very glad that Limbaugh won this battle very easily and I am not a big Limbaugh fan as I disagree with some of his ideas, methods, and of course his ego…

...”these people who are Astroturfing advertisers...”

The twitter-ers are more than that...I’ve seen them for months posting on every story, now that alot of places have a twitter feed running...

They are organized, and say NOTHING but stock, bumper-sticker, party-line LIES.
It is a disgusting attempt to mold public opinion through wholly bought, organized, paid-for SHILLS, masquerading as caring, involved “individuals”...

They disgust me, but I’m comforted by the fact that the useful idiots are the very first ones that will be lined up against the walls and SHOT by the very tyrants they support.
God help them then!

His Twitter feed has become a virtual magnet for every left-wing nutball rude crude extremist to chime in.

Way to smoke ‘em out of the weeds, Rush!

Mark Stevens CEO of MCSO - “We spend a million dollars a year on Rush’s show. We are going to triple down on it.”

The loony left. The gift that keeps giving.

This is why boycotts by the left are worthless.

The left make a big stink, 20 people spend hours creating hundreds of fake email addresses and threaten companies that they will stop buying a product they don’t buy in the first place. At the end of the month accounting goes, hmm, no impact.

This is why boycotts by the right work.

No letters, no nasty e-mail, nothing. We just stop buying. At the end of the month accounting goes, holy sh*t!!!

That’s how you destroy the left.

Jveritas,

Ya know, sometimes his ego is what gives me a smile in an otherless smiless economy. Just got the news that my beautiful house in this market will lose thirty grand IF we can sell. Yeah, sometimes, I just gotta go out there and be entertained.

Actually it looks like you’re hijacking the thread with your pimping. I guess that would be hi-pimping.

"“I was born and raised in New York, and spent well over a decade of my life living in Manhattan, the only borough most people care about." ...

"As of late 2010, I live in South Florida, as a courtesy to my mother, who now lives only a few miles away, and who welcomes the company of her children—periodically." (I don’t know why.).”

I bet he votes he votes in both places too. That's why Florida has tuned "purple" on the electoral map.
