Yesterday, I blogged about a recent email I received using Limbaugh as a boogie man to raise funds. Today, at The American Thinker, Paul Sclichta has gone to the root of the effort to cast Limbaugh as a figure for the lemmings in the Democrat party to hate.
So many Republicans find themselves hating on Limbaugh, too because they are stupid enough to believe the lies from the Legacy Media. Limbaugh is my personal litmus test for me if I want to see if someone is a conservative. If they like him, then they pass that test. If they don't pass the test, then, in my book, they cannot be a conservative. Bottom Line.
It is sad that Michael Steele [see article], Dr. Ada Fisher [see article], and so many other Republicans were made fools of by the Left. I hope that they learn from their mistakes, and move on.
Here is a portion from his article, which inspired me to do the photoshop in this post:
I am ashamed that Republicans are so simple. Like Lucy in Peanuts, Obama has once again offered the Republican Party a football to kick, and, like gullible old Charlie Brown, Republicans tried to kick it and ended up flat on their faces.
Obama's purpose should have been obvious. For the past eight years, the Democrats have made intense and persistent use of the Two Minute Hate technique that George Orwell described in Nineteen Eighty-Four:
The Hate had started. As usual, the face of Emmanuel Goldstein, the Enemy of the People, had flashed on to the screen...The programmes of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there were none in which Goldstein was not the principal figure...Goldstein was delivering his usual venomous attack upon the doctrines of the Party--an attack so exaggerated and perverse that a child should have been able to see through it, and yet just plausible enough to fill one with an alarmed feeling... Before the Hate had proceeded for thirty seconds, uncontrollable exclamations of rage were breaking out from half the people in the room ...In its second minute, the Hate rose to a frenzy. People were leaping up and down in their places and shouting at the tops of their voices in an effort to drown the maddening bleating voice that came from the screen ...The Hate rose to its climax. The voice of Goldstein had become an actual sheep's bleat, and for an instant the face changed into that of a sheep...
