Rush gains listeners as result of left-wing attacks

This is sweet:

Are Rush Limbaugh’s ratings going to take off and soar as a result of the recent Sandra Fluke controversy? According to nonpartisan radio expert Michael Harrison, that’s exactly what may happen. In fact, it’s happening now.

“The irony is that he probably right now has the biggest audience he’s had in years, and the double irony of all this is sponsors that are fleeing, they’re missing out on the best advertising buy in radio,” Harrison told Washington’s Daily Caller in an interview.

I don’t doubt this a bit.  I started listening to him for the first time in my life about three years ago when one of the very first things obama said after coming to office was to tell the republican congressmen “not to listen to Limbaugh.”  He went after Rush from the word go and it has not stopped.  This whole Sandra Fluck/Rush Limbaugh distraction leads right to the white house door.

Why is obama at war with christians, religion, and the First Amendment?

Leland Yee launches hit job on Limbaugh for joking about leader of communist China

Yee inserted himself in this situation.  Nobody was talking to him.  He just wants to play the victim as he has before.

He has accused Sarah Palin supporters of making threats to him, he tried to link a threat he claims to have received to the Tucson shooting, and now he is trying to blame a Rush Limbaugh fan for a threat.  Give me a break.  Reeks to High Heaven

You just never know what you might run across.  I was looking for comparisons of Reagan to Palin and found this website called “Reagan to Palin.”  So I got distracted on this:

Leland Yee is all in a silly little dither over Rush Limbaugh trying to sound like Hu without an interpreter.  Mr. Yee seems to be offended over this and demands an apology (which, thank goodness, is not forthcoming) and since that didn’t work, he is calling for a boycott on Rush’s sponsors.  That hasn’t gotten much traction so he now claims he got a very nasty fax threatening him from “a Rush fan.”  I don’t know, maybe it’s real but I wouldn’t put money on it.  I started to say, “Oh, no, he caught me!”  (Smile)  Not really.  Not really.  I’m kidding.  Don’t send out the FBI.  I would bet money it turns out to be a plant or was sent by someone from the loving left.

Mr. Yee seems to be a literal magnet for threats.  He received threats a few years ago because he sponsored a bill to ban or limit violent video games.  You can’t take away the children’s video games without raising some anger, he should know that, even though it may be a good idea.

Then he claims to have received threats by Palin supporters in regards to this dumpster diving incident where they supposedly found a contract or something in the trash.  Don’t remember it and don’t know all the details, but I’m linking to this post at Reagan to Palin.com.

I see where he also claimed to receive death threats he thought were connected to the Tucson shooting.  Sarah Palin again, I guess.  Now, he’s in San Francisco, mind you, but he has Arizona looking into it.  But you just never know whose hands that map with targets on it may have fallen into.  Maybe one actually made it to San Francisco, who knows.  Or did somebody say “reload.”

Of course, you ask Glenn Beck how many threats he gets, and he says he has 15 or more at any given moment.  And I’m sure all public figures get them.  Just imagine, if you can, the number of death threats Sarah Palin has received, along with her children who are hated for no reason whatsoever.   Michelle Malkin has published a lot of her’s.

I do believe Mr. Yee is just looking for attention. If he thought he was in danger, he should report it, but does he have to make it a big media event? No.

I don’t know Mr. Yee, never heard of him, but this article says he is a democrat darling along the lines of Nancy Pelosi and that just about says it all.  Somebody dug up some background on him as follows:

First of all the California legislative member, and political friend of Nancy Pelosi, is Sen. Leland Yee.  He is little more than a far-left gadfly who helped preside over the pending financial collapse of the state of California.  But, that’s not all.  Mr. Yee, now an American citizen but Chinese by birth, attended college at UC BERKLEY which would account for many of his radical views.  He represents a politically carved out district in San Francisco and served on the School Board there at one time.

Over the years, however, Senator Yee has engaged in questionable conduct:  Three police encounters over cruising for prostitutes in San Francisco’s Mission District, a 1993 shop lifting incident, and an investigation found that Lee’s taxpayer owned computers were the source for repeated attempts to re-write Lee’s WIKIPEDIA biography to exclude his legal problems and build up his reputation.

Palin hater & Pelosi friend, radical and discredited California State Senator Leland Yee (Police run-ins over prostitution & shop lifting)

Mr. Yee got his feelings hurt over something he probably did not hear to begin with.  And it’s really too bad.  He is the one who brought attention to himself.  If these people  would just stop listening to someone or some program they don’t like, they would save themselves a world of grief.  But I can tell you that it hurts my feelings when he and others vilify and lie about Sarah Palin, because she represents me.  And I like Rush, too, a lot.  He and Palin both build up the country that gives these mean-spirited people the right to speak their minds.  But for some reason, they don’t want anybody else to speak.

So, there you go.  Mr. Leland Yee.  Lay off Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin.  You know, it’s not civil nor nice to try to hurt somebody because they don’t agree with you or because some of us can laugh at ourselves and take a joke, or because you think it might elevate you to link to their names.  Maybe you should not take yourself quite so seriously.  Like I said before, some of you are wrapped way too tight.  Had you just laughed it off, nobody would have ever linked you to Rush Limbaugh.  And, again, he was not talking about YOU.  He was making a joke about the leader of Communist China, Hu Jintao.

To quote AWR Hawkin at Big Journalism on January 31, 2011:

“Hu Jintao carries on the “proud” tradition of Mao Tse-Tung and the real shame is not that Limbaugh translated the speech phonically, but that Democrats continue to defend Communist thugs and dictators.

Limbaugh has successfully outsmarted the CHICOMS and their sympathizers once more.”

Camille Paglia: Democrats have betrayed the soul of the party to mention Fairness Doctrine

New Audio: Camille Paglia Blisters Democrats for Pushing Return to ‘Fairness Doctrine.’

paglia_c

Ms. Paglia:  “They’ve totally betrayed the soul of the party to even mention this.”

Breitbart tv has an audio of Camille Paglia ripping the efforts of the democrat party to bring back the Fairness Doctrine. Listening to her brings back memories of the democrat party as it used to be, all about freedom and fairness, not the party of control and of the elite that is today. And it is getting worse every single day. I say this as a former democrat that the party left behind. It’s hardly recognizable in its present form.

I want to try to make a transcript of what she is saying, if I can, but in the meantime, anyone with the time will not be sorry they listened to this.

Audio Here.

UPDATE:

I did it, the best I could.

This is not an exact transcript of her words, but it is an excerpt to give a feel for what she said. It’s still worth it to listen to the audio to hear the inflections in her voice.

When asked about the Fairness Doctrine Ms. Paglia said:

“I don’t get it.  I don’t get it.

The essence of the 1960’s was about free speech.  That’s what Lenny Bruce and Berkley were about.  It was about free speech.

And not for one second should the government be wandering into the surveillance or montoring of the ideological content of talk radio.

They have betrayed the soul of the democrat party to even mention this.

Every true liberal democrat should be standing up in defense of talk radio no matter how heinous they may think what is being said is.

This is immature — immature for people of one party to try to squelch or erase the thoughts of another.

Liberals have a strangle hold on the major media and have had for 50 years.

What more do liberals want?

Talk radio rose as a counter to that fact. And I talk as a democrat.

Liberals for some odd reason cannot command the medium that is talk radio. AM radio is a distinct medium. The voice of AM radio is the voice of the people, the voice of the working class, lower middle class, the voice of early rock and roll and liberals have got to wake up.

I am a professor of humanities and media study and I see talk radio as coming out of the great tradition of our popular arts going back to vaudeville.

Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh and others have recreated a feeling from the early days of tv when everybody watched Ed Sullivan.  You didn’t have to like Ed Sullivan but it was a shared experience.  These guys have worked their way up from the bottom – from nothing and it’s the audience that voted them in. It’s not some conspiracy, that’s an idea that comes from the ivy league that there’s somehow some conspiracy.  That’s an idea from the 1930’s, from a period of fascism.  The mass audience votes with the dollar whether it’s for movies, for tv, or for radio.”
