Liberals get too much credit for destroying America. True, they claim to “liberate” the country from everything that made us who we are—including our culture with its historic toleration of foolishness. Liberals are merely a loud minority. But who gives them power? It isn’t the conscientious Conservatives. No, Liberals only have power because of spineless so-called “leaders”—more commonly known as “Moderates”. Since Liberal talk despises most Moderate Republicans, it’s fair to say that “Moderates” are everyone’s enemy. That’s what happens when you try to be everyone’s friend. Just ask George HW Bush.
“Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.”
Since, Limbaugh has cleaned-up the public’s understanding about the supposed exodus of sponsors and advertising in general. Rush explains why loosing only 28 sponsors in one weekend isn’t headline worthy. But now, anonymous sponsors are “practically begging” to return as EIB sponsors.
Where did they go wrong?
When a man doesn’t have a moral center, his opinion will shift faster than an accelerating motorcycle. If companies were so absolutely certain that Limbaugh was in the wrong, why change so fast? The answer is: They weren’t certain. Their withdrawal from Rush was based on opinion polls. Remind you of any politicians?
It’s good for a company to be held accountable to its customers. The problem in the Rush scenario is that the ex-sponsors weren’t listening to their customers—they were listening to loud, whining, Liberals who tend to want hand-outs.
Think about that: Libs and Conservatives alike know that Conservatives tend to be the Capitalists.. for better or worse. So, why would a (capitalist) company listen to people who oppose Capitalism? I suggest we have gotten too focused on loud, crying people who never were our friends in the first place. Our nation has abandoned its moral base—and Moderate Republicans have abandoned their base of voters. We have tried to befriend our few enemies, only to make enemies of our many loyal—and now former—friends.
It seems that corporations and politicians alike want to benefit from the Conservative majority, yet surrender to complaints that don’t come from their supporters.
Sure, there are Liberal-owned (capitalist) corporations which like to blast the Capitalism by which they exist. At least they are resolved on self-mutilation. But to profit from years of advertising, blasting the billboard when hippies Occupy the ground underneath it, then begging to return after loosing financially—?? That’s indicative of flaky leadership.
Rush isn’t hurting and neither are the Liberals who profit from talking trash about Capitalism. The go-along-to-get-along crowd.. As the saying goes: If you don’t stand for something, you—and your stock—will fall for anything.
