  •  Getting rid of Rush... (3+ / 0-)

    will not stop angry white guys from being angry and some other angry white guy propagandist will replace Rush because the people who sell propaganda know that there will always be a market for products being pitched to angry white guys.

    There will always be someone gauging you with a tolerance meter. Deeming you acceptable or evil. They're the best to offend.

      Neither is that a reason to let him remain unaccountable.

      Sure, there will probably be another propagandist after rush slinks away.  But  the perfect cannot be the enemy of the good.  Anyway, once we take down the odious limbaugh, the lessons learned and organization built in this effort will make taking down the next that much easier.

      replace.

      rush'a whole job has been about giving angry wt guys a fun home, a place they can go to feel wanted and understood and excused and rationalized. and for most talk radio he rules.

      we will always have a minority of racist idiots, but if you can blast the excuses and rationalizations from 1000 radio stations to 50 mil a week and no one gets in your face then why isn't it acceptable? what if it comes from the same stations that you hear your state college basketball or football on?

      what the radio monopoly has done the last 25 years, with rush in the lead, is give angry white guys the biggest soapbox in most US communities.

      rush is one guy, but he pioneered turning radio stations into shit fountains for the 1% and  to the broader RW radio audience which has become the GOP teabagger base, he is god. start with him and go from there- whatever hits him hits the republicans.

      This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.

    •  The battle (0+ / 0-)

      will always need to be fought again and again, but taking down the Oxycontin queen will prove it can be done and make sure we do not give up on the war.

      old, tired, poor, unemployed, ill, divorced, sick of politicians screwing us over, it only gets worse, think Charles Dickens novel.
