Skip to comments.RUSH: 'QUITE TELLING' FOX DIDN'T WANT ME TO CRITICIZE IMMIGRATION REFORM
Posted on 07/03/2013 5:02:09 PM PDT by markomalley
Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said on Tuesday that it was "quite telling" that Fox News did not want him to talk at length about his opposition to comprehensive immigration reform during his appearance on Fox and Friends.
"Now I told the people at Fox that I wanted to talk about this today three or four times and they wouldn't do it," Limbaugh said on his show after his appearance. "They were not interested in bringing this subject up. I wanted to talk about this in relationship to the current state of the Republican party and they wouldn't do it."
Limbaugh said he "had to bring it up myself to whatever extent I did, and that by the way, is quite telling to me."
Limbaugh did indeed manage to get in some comments about immigration on the show, saying, "Republicans are sitting around twiddling their thumbs worried about immigration and whether the Hispanics like them or not and being skunked on issue after issue after issue."

I guess there were exceptions as you point out. But generally immigration was free. Our efforts need to be focused on destroying the Socialist state.
You are pathetic garbage.
a place of refuge for any and all.
The world population is about 7 billion. Most of them from countries poorer than Mexico. So should we let them all in?
America's golden period, when the middle class grew; when prosperity was enjoyed by most; when it was respected throughout the world; when we built the interstate highway system and put a man on the moon, all happened in the post World War II immigration lull.
After the post 1965 immigration surge our shuttles blow up, our bridges collapse, the middle class shrank, and we are hated throughout the world.
Immigration worked in the 1920 to 1965 period because it was low, controlled, and focused on White Europeans. If we must have high immigration, and I do not believe we do, then at least make it as much like the indigenous population as possible (many Europeans, British, and beleaguered Afrikaners would love to come here).
However a country of over 300 million does not need immigration. How many congested highways must we slow-crawl along, how many over crowded schools must our children suffer, how many localities must suffer water shortages before we say enough!
True, we do need to stand up against the Dem election theft which is becoming too much of a foregone conclusion for them.
Voter ID is one way, but the way recounts are conducted is another. Doesn't anyone consider it strange that recount after recount is conducted until the Dem has more votes, then they stop recounting? If they counted all the votes the first time, how do they keep coming up with more votes (for both candidates, but almost always more for the Dem)? How do some precincts have more votes than registered voters, and how do they always go Democrat?
The "news" media won't cover any of this as they see their job is to protect and help Dems, not report the news and keep people informed. "Low info voter"? That's what Dems and the media want. We need to work to counteract that.
‘Port of Detroit’? What, did he fly in? :)
He spent 4 years in Saint Catherines Ontario before his intent to immigrate was accepted. He came from Europe on the SS Mount Temple which is now at the bottom of the Atlantic after the Germans sank her during WWI.
My sicilian side just say ‘we came over on the boat’, but they never actually describe the boat. I decided it must not have been a very nice boat so never pressed for details.
The Mount Temple had a very eventful run including running aground off Nova Scotia, responding to the Titanic SOS calls, and war service.
“Murdoch favors amnesty and increasing legal immigration. It is the reason Fox covers the subject the way it does.”
Murdoch is old. As soon as he assumes room temperature his children and professional management will make a hard left turn with his entire media empire. It is already drifting that way at an increasing speed even with the old man still around.
Big corporations support big government. Big corporations and big government support amnesty. We will have amnesty.
Excuse me, but freeing the slaved did exactly the same thing economically as does amnesty. Moreover, Lincoln made his name in Illinois doing eminent domain deals for barge companies and railroads. He was a definite corporate progressive, as was the Republican Party as a whole until the time of Coolidge. Conservatism as we see it is in fact an aberration in the history of the Republican Party.
Well, the GOP flunkie recently said he was not pushed to change his mind, contrary to the report that said he and Cavuto and someone else were pushed to... I didn’t believe him, and it really is beside the point- he is pushing the lie about border security first. There won’t be any, the Democrats won’t agree to it, so it is just a lie peddled by “conservatives.”
Thank you for confronting the defeatist attitude. I understand it; been there myself many times, especially during the BillClinton-TrentLott-OrinHatch era. But the paid posers are using it as a very effective psyops method to demoralize, and it becomes virtually impossible to distinguish between FRiend and foe. I REALLY, REALLY wish everyone would fully understand this and stop giving the trolls ammunition.
And we give citizenship to plenty of people every year who went about it the legal way.
We should never surrender to foreign criminal invaders
I meant to include you on the last reply. Sorry.
Btw, never forget your Texas roots. ;-)
The nation has had immigration and naturalization laws from the beginning.
Art I, Sect 8. US Constitution
To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization,
The British were keeping pretty extensive immigration records when we were still a colony as well.
I already knew how "moderate" he was continuously catering to Rudy, Christie, McCain, even found time to have Al Sharpton, so I needed nothing more to tell me he wasn't anyone I needed to pay any attention to.
Fox is somewhere between CNN and MSNBC these days.
The good Lord does't give us spirits of defeat, He gives us all the skills we'll ever need but we are supposed to use those gifts and stand up for truth!
