Rush fans pummel Democrat website (Freep This Petition, See Thread)
WorldNetDaily ^ | January 29, 2009 | WorldNetDaily

Posted on 01/29/2009 10:43:38 AM PST by 50cal Smokepole

A petition by the Democratic National Congressional Committee critical of Rush Limbaugh is backfiring as supporters of the talk radio icon pummel the party website with their own views.

Hundreds of people have signed the petition, which is introduced with the request to "Stand strong against Rush Limbaugh's Attacks – sign our petition, telling Rush what you think of his attacks on President Obama."

love this post from the UK

Obama’s Victory

A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of objectivity long ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they depend on her, comics who claim to be dangerous and fearless but would not dare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups.

A victory for Obama-worshippers everywhere. A victory for
the cult of the cult. A man who has done little with his life but has written about his achievements as if he had found the cure for cancer in between winning a marathon and building a nuclear reactor with his teeth.

Victory for style over substance, hyperbole over history, rabble-raising over reality.

A victory for Hollywood, the most dysfunctional community in the world. Victory for Streisand, Spielberg, Soros and Sarandon. Victory for those who prefer welfare to will and interference to independence. For those who settle for group think and herd mentality rather than those who fight for individual initiative and the right to be out of step with meager political fashion.

Victory for a man who is no friend of freedom. He and his people have already stated that media has to be controlled so as to be balanced, without realizing the extraordinary irony within that statement. Like most liberal zealots, the Obama worshippers constantly speak of Fox and Limbaugh, when the vast bulk of television stations and newspapers are drastically liberal and anti-conservative. Senior Democrat Chuck Schumer said that just as pornography should be censored, so should talk radio. In other words, one of the few free and open means of popular expression may well be cornered and beaten by bullies who even in triumph cannot tolerate any criticism and opposition.

A victory for those who believe the state is better qualified to
raise children than the family, for those who prefer teachers’
unions to teaching and for those who are naively convinced that if the West is sufficiently weak towards its enemies, war and terror will dissolve as quickly as the tears on the face of a leftist celebrity.

A victory for social democracy even after most of Europe has come to the painful conclusion that social democracy leads to mediocrity, failure, unemployment, inflation, higher taxes and economic stagnation. A victory for intrusive lawyers, banal sentimentalists, social extremists and urban snobs.

Congratulations America!

It’s a shame though - there are 405 pages of blog posts on the DCCC site - I looked back around 5 pages and no one commented on any of them - then the Rush petition hit and the site is getting thousands of hits.

I hope we can all drop the DCCC-CCCP site quickly, after this has blown over.

I used Hillary's quote about dissent being patriotic and we have the right to question any administration.

They’re mistaken to believe that it’s up to Repubs to “take action”.

Their action is not required.

They voted against something that will not work and will cause damage.

Put up something that will do the right thing and they’ll vote for it.

They will probably remove the comments but keep the signature, so I am not going to fall into the trap.

Nothing on the internet ever disappears, and others are already caching the comments. If they try that, it will backfire even worse.

I would love to hear what others commented.

I asked them to cease with their mendacious duplicity of purposely skewing what Rush said, and I added that I, along with millions upon millions of Americans, also hope that Obama's socialist agenda fails.

Screen captures. If they edit it and whitewash it, that can be more meat for a story or blogger.

Here are some of what I found at the dccc site yesterday and today:


I hope someone emails Rush and lets him know about how the pro-Rush comment on the’s blog outweigh the negs about 90 to 1.

Rush, Five years ago you changed me from a whiny-ass Liberal pussy into a true Conservative American who loves my country! Life has only gotten better. Thank you!

Posted by The Nerve in Cowtown, AZ | 01/28/09, 11:25 AM EST


HAHA. This is hilarious! LOL. This petition says “Stand Strong Against Rush Limbaugh” and 99% of the comments are PRO-LIMBAUGH!

The way this is going, I can guarantee you that Obama will deinitely NOT be re-elected in 2012. Keep it up Obama! You and your administration are self-imploding! Liberal wussies! Republicans will NOT back down to your liberal socialistic policies.

Posted by Natalie in Florida | 01/28/09, 12:49 PM EST


Stop being hypocritical. Conservatives DO want socialistic policy to fail, just as liberals want conservative policy to fail. That was the entire substance of Limbaugh’s comments in context; it has NOTHING to do with Obama personally. Some of you are smart enough to know that, yet you scream anyway. That makes you liars. The rest of you probably don’t care or wouldn’t understand even if the full comment is played for you to listen. Either way, the whole democrat/liberal/socialist presence in this country is intellectually bankrupt, emotionally retarded, and morally autistic. In a word, EVIL. Be damned to the lot of you.

I don’t listen to Rush every day, but I will now. Anyone who works this hard to silence someone is obviously afraid of what that person has to say. That usually means that person is hitting a nerve. Dictators and oppressive regimes always first silence those that unmask those dictators and oppressors. Freedom Of Speech is alive and not only for Democrats. I will listen to Rush every day now. Unlike the Obama cool aid crowd most Rush listeners don’t agree with Rush on everything. We are free independent thinkers. You can not silence us. For every Rush you try to silence there will be hundreds more.

There were 1527 comments so far on the dccc web site when I looked at it a few minutes ago. The post I posted there yesterday has yet to show up. I suspect that there must be a heck of a lot more posts in favor of Rush and they have held them back. Already 99% of the posts are Pro Rush as it is.

I suggest we all go and make posts there, copy and paste them into an email keeping track of the time we posted it, and see if our posts show up:

I left a message and it hasn’t shown up either. But it’s hilariously pro-Rush over there.

I have also posted...but it hasn’t shown up yet either. What a debacle...the Dems can’t even run a successful blog. ...

Ditto - left a pro-Rush message which isn’t there. The whole thing is laughable.

I made a comment yesterday but never checked to see if it showed up. Love that it’s Pro Rush!

They never posted mine. It was clean, honest! (though a little sarcastic . . . )

They never posted mine either and I made sure I kept track of the time I posted my comments so I could check back: 7:56 AM this morning.

This post #604 is hilarious:

It’s not just Rush.

Obama has just openly THREATENED that he will encourage his followers (like ACORN etc.) to activate in all districts of Republican members of Congress and Senate to strongly oppose their re-election - for not obeying his wishes on the stimulus package! He was apparently silent on the 11 Dims, who also voted against it.

Did you all read this?

get from an “I hate the GOP” mind set and back to an activism site that burns up the lines to the media and representatives both in local states and national... and the RNC, too. For instance, the GOP congressmen did good... I emailed a thank you to Boehner and my congressman as well as a donation to the RNCC last night.

Agreed. I emailed Rob Whitman already. I will send an email to Mark Warner an Jim Webb, encouraging them to follow suit although they are both Dems.

I think the states that have dems the dems need to hear from you; McCain might as well be a dem, but he is hearing from me, Kyl, too... I sent them an email this afternoon to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the GOP congress and support their stand against pork.
