    Another day, another attempt by liberal hate-baiters to get Rush off the air.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2014/09/22/Democrats-petition-rush-off-air

    And these are the same folks who boast they're the "tolerant", "compassionate" crowd. BS. Nothing could be farther from the truth. These people are vindictive, angry liars who literally hate anyone who doesn't march to their doctrine. And this latest attack on Rush only shows how little regard they have for civility, honesty or free speech. Sure, it's despicable, but that's the nature of liberalism these days; you either conform to their thinking (I use that very loosely in this case), shut up, or be punished via any means they have at their disposal. It's a cowardly way to conduct a political party and only demonstrates how insecure they really are. And they are, above all, very insecure.

    No force of law behind the petition? Not a free speech issue.

    When did Rushbo start speaking for free?

    Running his mouth is the only thing he knows how to do. I can't believe he'd just give that away to his rapt audience.

    Hey, progs - here's a crazy idea: if you don't like Limbaugh, don't listen to his show. There's no need to unleash your inner Stalinists over this - it only draws more attention to your talk-radio bête noire...

    It's not a matter of the law, it's a matter of liberals playing their little game of "threaten the sponsors of those who disagree with us", again. Oh, and of course, raising money from their fellow travelers.

    You originally called it a free speech issue with your title. I guess the change signifies your recognition of the mistake, so I'm done.

    If they really thought about it, they would realize that Limbaugh is one of their greatest assets.

    If running ones mouth was the only thing it takes to build an enterprise like Rush, every liberal in the country would have an radio empire.

    I agree; after all what is he but an irritating and frequently obnoxious shock-jock? He isn't a politician, he's an entertainer who has no influence over anyone who matters, and I really don't understand why certain groups appear to take his pronouncements as gospel and the last word on conservative hot topics. He certainly knows which buttons his core audience will react to having pushed.

    No, I didn't make a mistake and you know it. How liberals define free speech goes something like this; If you're a liberal you can say pretty much whatever you want as long it's purpose is support the liberal cause or demean an perceived enemy of the cause, but if you're an enemy of their cause they'll use whatever means at their disposal to make sure you're publically ridiculed, humiliated, scorned or worse into silence....then they'll turn around & say ...."hey, we believe totally in free speech!"
    And please don't pretend this is not exactly how it works. I mean, Obama;'s leading the "reward our friends, punish our enemies" crowd and he's damn proud to do it.

    If you need to ask, you're not paying attention.

    Nothing that drastic, just the ones who aren't registered Democrat.

    If someone is a liar, racist, sexist hypocrite.......and you want to let the advertisers who make his voice heard know that you are displeased with them for their support, there is nothing more American than that.

    - - - Updated - - -

    No stalinistic about a boycott of advertisers or a petition........
    The right seem to be the ones here who hate free speech

    Actually, I think the very subtle idea is.....


    get Republicans to DEFEND and SUPPORT Limbaugh....tying themselves at the waist to the hateful ol' gasbag. Dems showing the GOP as the "Party of Limbaugh"....

    which of course the ditto-heads cannot comprehend being "bad" for Republicans.

    :)

    Must be an election year. Fear and loathing front and center.

    Then tell us....list all of Rush's accomplishments?

    (BTW, "courageous service during the Vietnam War" and "long lasting marriage"...obviously aren't on the list. :) )

    The other poster is correct. You have no concept of the meaning of free speech.

    You should stop before you embarrass yourself further.

    Trying to silence people you don't agree with is totally Stalinist. What part of "Off the Air" is unclear to you?

    You're projecting.

    Again, if you don't like Limbaugh, do what I do - listen to something or someone else.

    If your goal was to become a very successful radio personality and author, I'm not sure how much bigger you can get, besides Howard Stern who's the real king. In this day and age of having 1 mil and 1 choices, the guy is still going strong. Quite an accomplishment. Hate him or not, the guy is VERY successful, where so many others have failed....with no help.
