Why has the Left spent the past five days ginning up a ridiculous controversy over Rush Limbaugh’s use of the word “slut” to describe liberal liar Sandra Fluke? Is it possible that they’re trying to distract attention from their own shady activity? Michelle Malkin is not distracted:
In a scathing fundraising e-mail appeal, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina name-checked wealthy free-market philanthropists Charles and David Koch — along with a growing movement of grassroots conservatives who have freely, voluntarily and legally given money to the Koch-founded nonprofit activist group Americans for Prosperity and its sister foundation. . . .
The threat of scrutiny was backed by Obama himself, whose official campaign Twitter account directed 12 million-plus followers this week to “add your name to demand that the Koch brothers make their donors public.”
Did you catch that? The President of the United States used his official Twitter account to attack the Koch brothers and Americans for Prosperity, a move that is clearly part of a coordinated effort by left-wing activists (including Occupy Wall Street and their union-thug allies) to smear and intimidate their political opponents.
Meanwhile, no fewer than seven advertisers have been harassed into pulling their ads from Limbaugh’s radio show, and why? Because of attacks from this same Obama smear machinee, that’s why.
If Rush Limbaugh isn’t on the radio, reaching millions of Americans to tell them about what Obama and his allies are up to, isn’t that going to make it easier for the Democrats to get away with their dirty tricks? So however much you may regret the use of the word “slut” on the radio, don’t you think that your offended sensibilities are less important than the work Rush Limbaugh does in opposing and exposing the Left?
On the one hand, we do not wish to endorse misconduct, but to throw Rush Limbaugh under the bus for a few insulting words? At a time when his enemies (who are also our enemies) are trying to destroy him? We need to re-focus our attention, and remember that old Air Force saying: When you’re taking flak, it’s because you’re over the target.
Rush has been bombing the hell out of the target for 25 years, and I’m pretty sure he’ll survive this latest burst of flak just fine — no thanks to certain people who overestimate their own importance.
