A literary reference

Sarah Palin was the left’s Emmanuel Goldstein.

Rush Limbaugh is the left’s current Emmanuel Goldstein.

In other news, we have always been at war with Eastasia.

The left is all about hate

January 26, 2009

The left is mired in hate. It’s how they operate.
For example, the following is a facebook group.
“Rush Limbaugh is a big fat racist, drug addicted, lying, hypocritical IDIOT”

No policy issues, just raw personal hatred. They probably can’t list a single example of racism from Rush, other than his opposition to the policies of their “Dear Leader.”

The left is all about hate because they can’t stand on their issues.

By Request

May 9, 2006

I had a comment on one of my Patrick Kennedy driving to endanger while under under the influence posts asking where were the posts about Rush Limbaugh.
So, by request, here is a post about Rush Limbaugh and his issues.

Mark Stein sums it up well in the National Review:

Early on, prosecutors claimed they had evidence of over ten felonies. They demanded that Rush plead guilty to some felony—any felony. He refused, always insisting on his innocence. So, they leaked more lies to the media, hoping to intimidate him. They seized his medical records. They gave his medical records to the media. The media took those records and turned them into graphics for television. Reporters and commentators were studying his prescriptions, discussing both the kinds and amount of medicine he had taken. They were beside themselves with glee. Newsweek, AP and the Palm Beach Post, Rush’s local paper, were especially vicious, serving as lap-dogs for the prosecutors.

In court, Rush fought these people every step of the way—all the way to the Florida Supreme Court. He spent millions of dollars defending himself—despite the fact that he had been a first-time abuser, went to rehab, and was clean. And then last October, the lead prosecutor sauntered into court and in response to questioning told the judge—we have no evidence that Rush Limbaugh has committed any crime! None.

So, I am very angry. You will hear commentator after commentator speaking sympathetically about Patrick Kennedy and his addiction to painkillers. You will hear people say that he is addicted, he has a serious health problem, he deserves to be praised for his forthrightness today, and we should leave him alone. And many of these commentators will be the same people who were giddy in their ceaseless attacks on Rush.

I am angry at the double standard, where liberals are regularly treated one way and conservatives another. I am also glad Patrick Kennedy won’t be abused as Rush was. But you can be sure that the next conservative with a problem won’t be treated like Kennedy.

But there are some aspects to the Kennedy matter that require answers. If Patrick Kennedy, who is not a first offender, is addicted to painkillers, from where did he get them? And there are news reports that he had been drinking earlier at a Capitol Hill bar and alcohol was later smelled on his breath. So, why was the officer on the scene prevented by more senior police officers from performing a routine sobriety test?

I truly wish Patrick Kennedy well. But you bet I’m angry.

Liberals against diversity.

April 16, 2005

Smith College is pretty liberal school by anyone’s standards, but there are limits to it’s tolerance for diversity it seems.

My favorite from the comments section:

This article should provide a week’s worth of material for Rush Limbaugh. Come to think of it, it will probably provide a week’s worth of material for Howard Stern

More hypocrisy from the left.

December 20, 2004

Via Drudge:

NBC’s comedy depiction of talkradio king Rush Limbaugh passed-out in vomit from drug abuse ignited backstage outrage at SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.

The animated sketch left one senior production source stunned and outraged, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

“Would we have done this to [John] Belushi? [Chris] Farley?” the source said on Sunday from New York.

The source asked not to be identified fearing retribution from SNL’s executive producer Lorne Michaels.

“We’ve had more fu**ing drug addicts on this show through the years… more tragedy. I have lost count. Did we ever have some laughs about Robert Downey Jr.’s serious drug addiction?”
