RIGHT WING NUTS? THAT IS WHAT COMMUNISTS CALL MAIN STREAM AMERICANS. LEFT WING IS A GENTLE WORD FOR HARD CORE COMMUNIST. THE DEMOCRAT PARTY OF YOUR ANCESTORS HAS MOVED TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. THE COMMUNIST PARTY HAS REPLACED THE DEMOCRAT PARTY. THE GOAL SET BY JOSEPH STALIN WAS FINALLY REACHED UNDER THE RULE OF OBAMA BIN LENIN MORE AND MORE AS THE COMMUNISTS SOLIDIFY THEIR HOLD ON THE PEOPLE YOU WILL HEAR CHARGES OF MCCARTHYISM, THAT IS A COMMUNIST TACTIC.
The Tea Party seemed to be the "it" thing a couple years back when they first burst on the scene. Republicans flocked to them in droves. The Tea Party contributed 28 of the 39 seats in 2010 that the GOP needed to take control of the House of Representatives. Today, only a handful of Republicans follow these extremist, anti-government, paranoid nutjobs and cater to their twisted agenda. To the detrement of the public, they hold America hostage to their ridiculous wants and
Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy was recently on Amy Goodman's Demockery Now championing the call to ban "assault clips." What are "assault clips," you ask? "Assault clips" (or "magazines," as the gun people at the RNA call them) are the thingies that go in the bottom of the thing that goes BAM BAM BAM!!! If you can put a whole bunch of bullet-holders in the clip thingy, THAT'S AWFUL!!!
We intrepid reporters discovered something alarming about the congresswoman from Long island: While leading the charge to ban these infernal "assault clips," she herself DRIVES AN ASSAULT CAR! What is an "assault car," you ask? Well, it's a car that can go IN EXCESS OF 55MPH! You read that right - these demonic inventions travel FASTER THAN THE SPEED LIMIT! Now, we understand that Ms. McCarthy has a privilege to travel, but honestly, who NEEDS a car that can go faster than 55 MPH? You don't need a car that can travel that fast to go to work, now do you?
We know that traffic fatalities increase with the speed of the vehicles, and - believe it or not - there are even more deaths in the United States each year from auto accidents than firearms. So WHY ISN'T CONGRESSWOMAN McCARTHY WORKING AS HARD TO BAN ASSAULT CARS??? Moreover, why does she drive an assault car herself???
This and more on tonight's edition of Jesus, The Bible and Anything Else.
American politics was transformed from the time a WABC manager told Rush Limbaugh, "You're kidding yourself if you think we'll ever carry your national show." to the day an establishment Republican senator griped "talk radio is running America."
Limbaugh ignited a new generation of talkers such as Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck helping to define the Conservative movement and challenge the elite media. But Rush can't take all the credit.
From the inception of radio, bombastic personalities have used the airwaves to sway public opinion. The Right Frequency by Fred V. Lucas tells the remarkable story beginning with the early voices opining on the New Deal and McCarthyism to today snd on-air giants who exposed Clinton corruption, Obama failures and even Bush missteps. The book features interviews with leading conservative talkers and explains why talk radio is the only media venue thoroughly dominated by the right.
