The Second Coming of American Liberal Fascism?
During the Bush years, Bush was often compared to Hitler or Mussolini,. The focus of the attacks had to do with wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and angst over the supposed erosion of civil liberties due to warrantless wiretaps, among other things. There was a lot of hyperbole. Bush was a monkey, a Nazi, a Fascist, the devil’s spawn. The hyperbole became so hysterical some | Read More »

The World According to David Brock
David Brock says he got famous for calling Anita Hill “a slut.” That is his own description of how he became famous. Compounding the irony, David Brock says Rush Limbaugh made him famous. That’s right folks, the head of Media Matters For America, on a personal quest to destroy Rush Limbaugh after spectacularly failing to do the same to Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Anita Hill, | Read More »
The Left No Longer Finds Dissent Patriotic
Workforce Fairness is releasing a series of videos chronicling left-wing intimidation, including showing up at people’s houses to harass them and their families. We’re pleased to debut the first of the videos here at RedState. The videos document a growing trend in American civic discourse — the use of intimidation against private citizens to punish dissent.

Media Matters’ Desperate Need to Focus on Rush Limbaugh
The Washington Times has the story of Media Matters’ latest effort to drive Rush Limbaugh from the airwaves. They’ll use radio ads in eight cities. In one of the anti-Limbaugh ads, listeners are urged to call the local station that carries Limbaugh to say “we don’t talk to women like that” in our city. Ad time was purchased in Boston; Chicago; Detroit; Seattle; Milwaukee; St. | Read More »
Silencing the Right
Last week, Rush Limbaugh suggested Sandra Fluke was a slut. The left immediately began calling for boycotts of his advertisers. He apologized on Saturday. Fluke refused to accept his apology claiming he did it under duress and the pressure has kept up. It is organized and it has nothing to do with Limbaugh referring to Sandra Fluke as the same thing Ed Schultz referred to | Read More »
Does Carly Fiorina Just Not Get It?
Carly Fiorina is offended by Rush Limbaugh’s comments on Georgetown Law School student Sandra Fluke, who testified before Congress that she wants the American taxpayers to subsidize her sexual proclivities. We should be insulted with Fluke, but Fiorina is insulted by Limbaugh. “That language is insulting, in my opinion. It’s incendiary and most of all, it’s a distraction. It’s a distraction from what are very | Read More »
This Conor Guy Just Wanted to Slam Limbaugh, Right?
That Conor guy at the Atlantic felt the need to slam Limbaugh and in the process claim there is some sort of fight between Limbaugh and others on the right. But there’s a bit of a problem with him dragging me into this fight he wants to pick. He uses a Limbaugh monologue about the GOP establishment attacking Newt as the kick off. The conservative | Read More »
See, We Told You So
Back in 1994, Rush Limbaugh wrote See I Told You So. From page 88 of the book: [T]he cure for: a) the budget deficit = more taxes; b) unemployment = more taxes; c) recession = more taxes; d) environmental problems = more taxes; e) illiteracy = more taxes; f) L.A. riots = more taxes. It doesn’t matter what the nature of the problem is. This | Read More »
Eric Boehlert of Media Matters Race Baits on GMA
Please take a moment to watch the debate on Good Morning America between Eric Boehlert of Media Matters for America and Andrew Brietbart of, among other outlets, Big Government.

Happy Birthday Rush
Today is Rush Limbaugh’s 59th birthday. Happy Birthday El Rushbo. Leave your best wishes in the comments for the man the nation now considers the most important conservative voice in the universe. I’d tell you what he’s getting from RedState, but then that would give the surprise away.
Fact Checking the AP
How many reporters did the AP deploy to “fact check” Sarah Palin? Nearly a dozen? Today, the AP is running a report on Rush Limbaugh and notes — not for the first time: Limbaugh broadcasts from his mansion in Palm Beach, Fla. That’s a flat out lie. I know where Rush broadcasts from and it ain’t his house. In fact, as Rush himself has pointed | Read More »
Conservatism Didn’t Lose in NY-23
Great minds and all that. Naturally, Rush gives a better summary of my point than me. You know what, I was reading Erick Erickson today at RedState.com, and he was the real first behind Hoffman guy. I mean, he was really pushing it on his blog, and he wrote today — I’ll paraphrase it — he wrote, “Look, the message out of this is we | Read More »
Race Pimps and Their Funders
Race Pimp Al Sharpton used his National Action Network to run the campaign against Rush Limbaugh’s ownership of the St. Louis Rams. Like most race pimps, Sharpton takes his bullhorn to corporate America and demands that they either pay up or be tarred and feathered as racists. It is the race pimp equivalent of the mob protection racket. The National Legal and Policy Center has | Read More »
Rick Sanchez of CNN Ran Over a Man Then Fled the Scene. Two Hours Later, Sanchez Was Still Drunk.
Here is what is phony. Rick Sanchez quoted Rush Limbaugh on CNN and the quote was fabricated. The racially insensitive quote attributed to Limbaugh was made up on the internet and not uttered by Rush. Sanchez has refused to apologize for using the quote in a hit job on Limbaugh designed to destroy Limbaugh’s bid for the St. Louis Rams. Here is what is real. | Read More »
The Return of the Politics of Personal Destruction
During the Clinton years, Newt Gingrich and Ken Starr were household names vilified as Republican Torquemadas. During the Bush years, the Democrats turned the Republicans into the party of Trent Lott, Tom DeLay, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, and Mark Foley. It was this type of politics that candidate Barack Obama campaigned to end. In fact, Obama was often quoted saying we need to get away | Read More »
The year is 2003. Tom Ridge is chatting, explaining what’s going on with Homeland Security, having a seemingly good time. His good natured counterpart in the conversation lets Ridge run with the conversation. The other party in the conversation is Rush Limbaugh. Ridge had called into Rush’s show. Over the past twenty years Rush has been on the air, people like Powell, Ridge, and others | Read More »
The Lesbian Who Loved A Man: Wanda Sykes Is Hot for Barry & Cold for Rush and Cheney
[Editorial Note to Ms. Sykes from Erick: I'm pretty sure, if we play the odds, it would be more likely for the 20th hijacker to be named Barack Hussein Obama than Rush Hudson Limbaugh, III] By now you have probably read about Wanda Sykes’ comments at the Correspondents Dinner. It is the first time in recorded history a lesbian has stood before America’s media elite | Read More »
Cheney, Limbaugh, and the Destruction of America
Dick Cheney has given a lashing to both Colin Powell and Barack Obama. Put me in the Cheney-Limbaugh camp. Heck, put me in the Cheney-Limbaugh 2012 camp. If not a Presidential ticket, at least they should be the listened voices on the right — the ones whose advice guides the direction our candidates go. Yes, the left may laugh at that and encourage it, but | Read More »
Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead. What about Ted Kennedy?
UPDATED: Hat tip to all the commenters and Caleb who suggest if the Dems are offended, we just call it the Mary Jo Kopechne Memorial Health Care Act. After all, she is already dead. — Erick We can objectively conclude this morning that the Democrats are trying to distract attention from their failures by pointing fingers at Rush Limbaugh. Yesterday afternoon, it reached a level | Read More »
A Question About Rush’s ‘Conservative’ Critics
Are any of Rush’s critics actual solid conservatives with a record of accomplishment? David Frum worked in the White House for about five minutes and is pro-abortion. Rod Dreher’s writing bursts with contempt for middle America conservatives, Michael Steele is a Christine Todd Whitman Republican, Ross Douthat is busy redefining conservatism, etc. Rush has been fighting for us on the front lines for two decades | Read More »
