I was going to title this “Liberal Fascism Comes to America” but it only took me a second to realize it’s been here for a long time.
The latest proof comes in the form of the lefts mind-bogglingly hypocritical crusade against Rush Limbaugh. After the things that have been said about Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann by big Obama donors – heck, after the things that have been said about me as an average American and a supporter of the Tea Party.
Truly. The mind. It boggles.
Today I read an open letter from the manager of the local talk radio station. It outlined how he had received hundreds of calls and emails from around the country “demanding” that he take Rush off the air. From people who had never even heard of our small town. Fortunately our station is standing for free speech. But I am sure that Media Matters has used many of it’s tax-deductible dollars to fund phone banks full of people just picking up the phone and calling one radio station after another.
This should be worse than repugnant to every American.
There are many, many people who I do not agree with. They make me angry, and sometimes they make me sick. But I don’t have to listen to them if I don’t choose to. To try to silence the opposition is dangerous thinking, and dangerous behavior. The truth will always out. If everyone has an opportunity to speak, then truth will find it’s way to the top. The only people who have an interest in silencing voices, in silencing free speech, are those that are afraid of the truth.
What this means is that the Progressive movement is afraid of the truth. Media Matters is afraid of the truth. If truth were on their side, they have only to speak it, and it would prevail. If you are trying to disarm your opponent it is because you know he can beat you. You are acknowledging that the only way you can win is to cheat.
I appeal to every Americans who believes in free speech – pick up your phone or open your email box and contact your local radio station to tell them you support free speech.Tweet it after you do. Post it your Facebook page.This isn’t about Rush and what he did or didn’t say, or about Bill Maher and who he gives his money to. This is about preserving your right to speak your own opinion. Period. Even if the liberal fascists in the left-wing bastions don’t like it.
And I make an appeal to every advertisers sense of self-preservation. Advertisers, let me enlighten you on a little fiscal reality.
The left may have all the millionaires, it is true, but there are only so many of them, and the remainder of the Democrat party is made up of those on public assistance. We, the conservatives of this country, make up the great middle class. We are the people who buy stuff. Stuff like sleep number mattresses and flower bouquets. Don’t mess with us. Most of us see what’s happening in this country. We may have gotten lazy in the past, but we are starting to realize the situation we’re in. We will no longer support advertisers who kowtow to liberal fascism. We may not be ready to pick up pitchforks, but we can and will hold onto our wallets.
