Alpha, now I remember why I don't like you very much. You might support the United States when it suits you but you're just as rabid as superfly, goodbye, ADG, sas23, and the other nuts on this forum when it comes to anyone who doesn't lean so far left that they almost fall over.
Bullshit, B757300. I'm dead in the center of the political spectrum. I wouldn't give you the time of day for what each extreme-left and right-would do to this country. Rush is an extremist, pure and simple. If you dont' agree with him, you're a "liberal' (a word he has personally bastardized over the years), or a communist, or anti-American. I don't really lean either way. I'm more liberal on some issues, more conservative on others. Left-leaners don't oppose abortion, pal-I do. Leftists think PC is like the Holy Bible-I think it sucks. So tell me again I'm left-leaning.
And you don't like me. LIke I give a flying frack.
All you uneducated liberals...
Come again? Who are all these backwood rednecks, who sit in their homes all day, and call Rush to kiss his ass? ROTFL. Do these "educated" conservatives have jobs? Oh, they don't have to-they earned their money the old-fashioned, and GOP-approved way: they inherited it. It has a lot to do with education, but I think it's the conservatives that lap up his nonsense that are the uneducated ones, since they take whatever he says at face value.
The only reasons you people hate Rush is because he is conservative, successful, and is RIGHT.
The first two bother me not in the least, but RIGHT? The only thing "right" about him is his political leanings, and little else. He has become a right-wing prostitute, selling the public a pack of half-truths and lies. The biggest lie of all is that somehow, people that he deems "liberal" (anyone left of himself, of course) is somehow not a real American, which is bullshit. If you believe it when he says that, I question his and your fitness to be a real American, who can take other points of view. He can't, and I think you cannot either.
He is not a nazi or a nutcase, just a conservative radio host..
Maniac, that was a well thought-out post, and you do credit as a reasonable man, however I must demure in the quote above. He is no longer "just a conservative radio host". He wields tremendous influence in right-wing circles, and in forwarding the cause of ultra-conservativism. He is to be credited with making himself this big an influence, while at the same time I heartily disagree with what he preaches.
