Rush Limbaugh is a conservative radio talk-show host, writer and political commentator. His show has over 13 million listeners and has been on the air for over 28 years. Rush is the most listened-to talk radio program in the United States.
On Wednesday, Rush told listeners on his show that if Hillary and the Democrats win the election, it’s going just the beginning of the Democrats going after everybody who opposes them. It all sounds like a time warp. A time warp that occurred prior to Ronald Reagan and the repeal of the Fairness Doctrine – which required that stations provide free air time for responses that were controversial opinions.
If you missed his show on Wednesday….here’s a highlight:
H/T Rush Limbaugh Show:
RUSH: I mentioned yesterday on this program. I need to get this out of the way so we can move on to the crux of things today. I mentioned yesterday that if Hillary and the Democrats win the election, it’s just the beginning. They are gonna go after everybody who opposes them.
The objective is going to be the elimination of opposition. Not a level playing field, not a circumstance where free and open debate takes place, but the elimination of opposition. And I can demonstrate it. I’ll demonstrate that I’m right by virtue of C-SPAN’s Washington Journal today. The host, Pedro Echevarria is speaking with Politico contributor… Some of you might think it’s Echevarria. They pronounce it both ways, but it’s actually Echevarria. Pedro spoke with Politico contributor and author Nicole Hemmer about her new book, “Messengers of the Right: Conservative Media and the Transformation of American Politics,” and Echevarria says, “When did we see the growth of conservative media?”
HEMMER: The late 1950s and 1960s. But it’s always, in this period, pretty small. So they disappear historically. The real shift comes not with the first generation that I write about, but the second generation. So when Rush Limbaugh, his program goes national in 1988, you have a conservative media that is visible nationally and that is part of a national conversation. It raises its awareness of conservative media, but it also creates a false memory, I think, for Americans who look back and they say, “Oh, conservative media started in 1988.” We understand to understand that conservatives have been — been doing this for a long time.
RUSH: Whoa, and that makes it even more important to stamp them out. We have to understand, conservatives have been around a lot longer than 1988, like a disease. Conservatives, conservatism? Yeah, yeah! Don’t think that just because the giant plague hit in 1988 that the disease wasn’t around before that, because it was. You just didn’t see it and you didn’t notice it, but it was there. Conservatism, the plague, has always been there. So after that settled in, Echevarria didn’t have much to say coming back, but he did have a question…
ECHEVARRIA: You’ve said Rush Limbaugh. Is he the standard-bearer there as far as radio is concerned?
HEMMER: He is, absolutely. I mean, he’s the one who pioneers this new interactive talk radio format that becomes nationally popular in the early 1990s, and it’s really not until a decade later — until 2000, 2001, 2002 — that you get his cohort Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, all these folks who are modeled after him and create the broad conservative radio universe we have today.
RUSH: So the plague existed, the plague of conservatives. You know, you can trace conservatism back to the founding. (chuckling) If you want to know where conservatism began in America, try Convention Hall, Philadelphia, in the mid-1700s. That’s the original of conservatism in America. The founding was especially conservative, but she doesn’t know that. She hasn’t been taught that. She hasn’t slightest idea. To her, conservatism is a plague. It’s a disease. It was festering out there!
I hate to tell Nicole Hemmer…Conservatism is NOT a disease! Rush may be one of the few big names in Conservative radio, but there are others…like Joe Walsh, Sean Hannity, and others, and most of us all remember when Neal Boortz was around.
Rush goes on to explain and discuss the Fairness Doctrine and Hemmer’s comments. Hemmer stated the Fairness-Doctrine opened the door basically for reporting to be “unbalanced”.
RUSH: So you see how conservatism is being portrayed here in this book by a Politico infobabe, a Politico reporterette? It’s a disease, it’s a plague, and the CDC — in this case, the FCC — made an error in treating it. They allowed the virus to grow by not enforcing “truth-in-reporting laws,” which enabled our EIB affiliates to skirt the edges of the law by picking up this program.
All of this means, they’re gonna take care of this. It’s gonna be pretty soon on their agenda, because this is — right here — the location of the primary opposition to the left and the Democrat Party, and they are not going to tolerate any opposition.
There’s more of the Rush show here.
Sounds like more socialism is coming. We’ve all seen the many signs already that include: millions of refugees being resettled in “sanctuary cities”, our religious rights being challenged, our 2nd Amendment rights being challenged, nationalized healthcare – Obamacare being required, expanded entitlement programs, increased regulations, high unemployment, increased class warfare, radical wealth redistribution, the implementation of Common Core, and much more.
What we have to look forward to next is the 1st Amendment – Freedom of Speech – being squashed! It won’t take much and it won’t be a surprise when it happens. If Clinton gets elected, the FCC will change the laws and all Americans, including those that listen to Rush, won’t have anywhere to turn to. All the news will be BS! Wake up People!
So just remember, if Donald Trump doesn’t get elected as the next president, he won’t be the only one going down…conservatives and the TRUTH will all be harder to find if the leftists and Hillary Clinton have their way.
