How Media Matters plans to “get” Rush Limbaugh

by editor on July 9, 2010

You know that old movie about the aging big game hunter who’s spent years stalking one particular lion, but has never managed to bring the magnificent beast down? There’s nothing he wants more than that lion’s head hanging on his wall. It’s become a personal battle and the hunter’s failure has made him bitter, angry, and obsessed.

In this case, think of Media Matters as the hunter and Rush Limbaugh as the lion.

The crazy old left wing hunters want nothing more than to destroy Rush Limbaugh’s career by catching him uttering racist words so offensive that they can be used to turn public opinion against the talk show host.

So Media Matters waits, hiding in the bushes, waiting for Limbaugh to expose himself so they can get a clear shot. So far, they’ve missed every time.

Media Matter’s Karl Frisch tells listener-starved liberal talk show host Stephanie Miller exactly what they want:

Frisch: You have to wait every couple of weeks for Rush Limbaugh. I don’t know if he goes off his medication or something, but for him to get really down in the dirt racist, it only happens every couple of weeks, whether its bend over and grab her ankles cause his father was black, or calling him (Obama) a Halfican American, or playing Barack the Magic Negro, that stuff doesn’t happen every day. But it’s as if there’s a little beaker inside of Rush Limbaugh that fills up with racist venom until it just can’t take it anymore and it explodes all over the place.

Miller: Yeah, right. His blow-out preventer is faulty in that sense.

The problem here is that anyone who’s ever listened to Limbaugh knows he doesn’t have a racist bone in his body.

But the even larger problem is that anyone who’s ever listened to the people at Media Matters know they don’t have a funny bone in their bodies.

Rush’s audience would not give a damn what media matters had to say about anything. The left does not understand loyalty or the power of the truth.

The problem MediaMatters has is that those media outlets who put the most stock in what they say & use those stories are the outlets that are losing their audience or never had an audience. The network news, CNN, BSNBC, & whatever is left of liberal/progressive talk radio are the only ones who take MediaMatters seriously. If it were not for George Soros money, those working there would have to get real jobs.

This is exactly the reason why is hard being a conservative. It is not an easy lifestyle. It is a lifestyle of ALWAYS being on top of what one says and does. If there is one slip the community of haters will be like vultures pointing to it and take every opportunity to bring it up.

The only way liberals can win is by silencing the opposition. They believe in only ‘one voice’ for America… Theirs.

I am not a regular listener to Rush, not do I agree with every single syllable out of his mouth, but I can’t say I have ever heard him say anything racist. Here’s the kicker. So what if he did? I am so sick of thought control. If you say anything about any racial group other than lilly white wasps, SOMEbody willl scream racism. So if I decide that 1/2 Mexicam, 1/2 Asians are people I don’t want to hang with, THAT IS MY PRIVILEGE! Whatever happened to free speech. If someone is making racist comments and enough people dislike it, the person’s business will fail, he will have no relationships, etc. His choice. And if Rush is such a terrible person, why encourage people to listen to him? Why constantly refer to his speeches and radio progam. They are giving him free publicity. Just exactly HOW stupid can these guys be?

Deb, the answer to that question should be self-evident…nuff said… liberals have proven their stupidity over and over again, throughout history. And since not one of them has any concept of history, they don’t even know it. Pretty sad indeed….

Good to see Media Mutters has it’s pom-poms all in a bunch over Rush – this is the normal act of childish behavior from miller and company who wish they had 1/10th of Rush’s listeners. Jealous!

And now they have discovered their democrat pals are in deep doo-doo with no one else to blame but themselves — and the liberal cable news and talk-radio libs have not helped at all. Losers!

They’re practicing the same-old, same-old as they did on Bush with Rush – preparing for the next non-democrat president! Lame!

Amazing how they’re just standing watch for buzzwords of racism. Not actual racism, mind you, just things that can be made to seem racist with the proper amount of outrage shouted in reaction. It’s a game to them.

I’ve been in the midst of this recently at work. We have a black woman who likes to jump on every word every white person utters and twist it into an H.R. complaint. I’ve been above the muddy fray, but when something happened with one of my crewmembers, I was asked for my reaction, which went thusly:

“Christopher Reeve said something brilliant after his accident. He said, ‘I have learned that you are not your body.’ ” When everyone in the room agreed this was a nugget of pure wisdom I said, “Your skin in part of your body, and only the surface part. The color of it is completely meaningless.”

I was raised in the ’70s. The concept then was color-blindness. How it morphed into this stupidity that skin color is everything is beyond me. What a cultural mistake.

Media Matters? Really? Nah, they need a good therapist who can be around to talk them off the ledge now a then, and give them lots of tasty pharmaceuticals to help with those delusions they keep having. Rush has proven he is the only one who can take down Rush and that ain’t happening soon.

Believably unbelievable. These people are so wrapped up in race they can’t see anything for what it actually is. These troglodytes just can’t comprehend that disagreement and even belittlement of a pathetic specimen such as Obama, and even embracing the desire for his regime to fail, is not racist. If it is, considering the voracious hate-filled speech spewed forth by minority communities towards Bush, which minority group cannot rightfully call themselves racist?

The leftist progressive wackos really must find another word to distort. They have perverted the word “racist” to the point it has no real meaning at all except to indicate political revulsion and policy disagreement with a half-white President.

If Frisch took a breather from masturbating down in his mother’s basement he might know that ‘Barack, the Magic Negro’ was written by a libtard much like himself in the L.A. Times, a piece of communist fishwrap which is currently disemboweling itself on the Left Coast. Mr. Limbaugh, however, the ‘Man Who Runs America’, and a self-made billionaire (unlike poor Mr. Frisch and libtard infobabe Miller) did do a hilarious musical tribute to Ozero.

The left doesn’t “get it”. They never have – they never will.

I once hired a lady that was a total left lunatic. OK, she was hot as August in New Orleans, but I digress. One day one of the left’s leaders (I forget which one) died and I asked her what he had actually accomplished while in office. Of coruse she was incensed and started spouting off about his “ideas, plans, etc”. So, I issued a challenge – bring me one – just one – accomplishment of this guy in 24 hours and I will send $100 of flowers to the funeral and donate $1,000 to her favorite charity. Guess what, never had to spend a dime.

BTW, saw her about 10 years later and she looked like most of the other dem gals. Personally, I believe hatred changes a person’s looks over time, and these people are full of it – in so many ways.

Rush has been doing what he does for 20 years…if he said something racist every couple of weeks his career would have lasted about two weeks.

The left is so pathetic.

Yes, doug, that is what I was thinking.

I am a regular listener to Mr. Limbaugh’s show, and he IS NOT a racist. But, when did facts ever matter to media matters? ***snort***

However, if Mr. Limbaugh had EVER said ANYTHING that could be construed as racist (either in or out of context) it would have been the lede on every major alphabet network 24/7 for weeks and weeks and weeks. Period.

We are all aware that the left would eat their young for political gain.

Rush Limbaugh ROCKS!

Tru DAT!

The majic negro skit was a dig at an LA Times story with “Barack The Majic Negro” as the headline…stupid liberal, be more truthful.

Thats not going to happen anytime soon.

This “self-proclaimed” bi-partisan website has this creepy fixation with Rush and, for that matter, anything or anyone conservative – and especially the Fox Network. Don’t pay a lot of attention to it, but didn’t they have some sort of tag line that said something like: (para-phrasing) “…because truth in the media matters…”? Why then, aren’t they exposing Kieth Olberman for the knucklehead he is? Why is there never any exposure of the lunacy from the left leaning media? I am not looking for answers as I am preaching to the choir, just wanted to rant about these schlubs and the minions that follow them. By the way, a note to the graphic artist for meedia matters: while making Rush’s cigar appear to be five feet long is somewhat humorous, bad photo-shopping kills the joke. Practice, practice and more practice!

Bi-partisan?? Right. They have a “Right Wing Book Watch” to hold conservative authors accountable, and every ‘reporter’ they have is leaning so far left that their elbows are dragging on the floor.
