Useful idiots, Republican Pets and Alinsky – Tea Party Nation
March 5, 2012 1 Comment
George Will is one of those useless Washington Republicans who believes conservatives should be a minority, too polite to make problems for the liberals. Rush Limbaugh has his finger on the pulse of real America.
What is wrong with Will, right with Rush and how does Alinsky fit into all of this?
From the Daily Caller:
“This Week” host George Stephanopoulos speculated that conservative talker Rush Limbaugh had been under enormous pressure to apologize for his remarks about Fluke, which included calling her a “slut.” But Will hinted that he was actually underwhelmed by the reaction of some Republicans.
“Well, it would have been nice if [GOP leaders] shared that with the larger public,” Will said. “Instead, Mr. Boehner said that Rush’s language was inappropriate. Using a salad fork for your entree — that is inappropriate. Rick Santorum says, ‘Well, what he said was absurd and an entertainer is allowed to absurd.’ No, it is the responsibilities of conservatives to police the right excesses on their side just as the liberals unfailingly fail on their own side.”
“It was depressing because what it indicates is, the Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh
Of course George Will is underwhelmed. Wait, we are talking about his intelligence, not his response. Will is just one of those beltway Republicans who believes the natural order of life is they are subservient to liberals. He believes he should show up, articulate the moderate Republican talking points that conservatives are the focus of all evil in the world and then sit back and nod like a bobble head as the liberals slander conservative Republicans.
What Will and most liberals do not get is that people do not follow Rush Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh follows real America. If Rush Limbaugh simply had millions of mind numbed robots that followed his every word, the liberals would have long ago created their version of Rush Limbaugh. They have not because none of the liberals can touch America’s pulse.
If a liberal were going to be able to touch the pulse of America, they would first have to stop hating America and real Americans. They are singularly incapable of doing that.
That is why Rush has millions of followers. That is why Hanity and Beck have millions of followers. That is why liberal talk radio cannot succeed.
Some on the far left understand that Rush is not just a hot shot talk show host but he represents the thoughts and opinions of millions of real Americans. Which is why Rush must be destroyed.
Rule 12 of Alinsky’s rules is Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Call it divide and conquer.
Rush, whose political instincts are extraordinary, did step into this one. He has always been a top target of the left for years. Because of his comments, they have frozen him or made him deal with the issue. They made the issue personal, poor little Sandra Fluke versus the big, rich, bad Rush Limbaugh. Then they tried to polarize him. They have tried to make Rush so unacceptable that he would be forced out.
They attacked his advertisers and had 7 of them drop advertising. Even the Republican Presidential candidates acted as if Rush was toxic. Then pet Republican George Will jumped in parroting the liberal talking lines.
If the Twitter response is any indication, most of those advertisers will regret their decisions. Meanwhile Rush continues to be the top rated radio talk show host in history.
George Will just continues to be the pet Republican of the liberal media establishment.
