Subway, the Anti-Rush Limbaugh Boycott and the Sad Debacle That Is #UniteBlue

Posted on | July 22, 2013 | 171 Comments

A late lunch with 10-year-old daughter Reagan at Subway today.

The entirely negative and destructive agenda of the Left — they hate America, and if you love America, they hate you — has turned its focus to attempting to destroy Rush Limbaugh by boycotting his advertisers. The so-called “Stop Rush” campaign was recently commercialized by Democrat Party consultant Zack Green, who on Friday put up a post called “Boycott @Subway until they dump Rush Limbaugh” at his firm’s site. Zack Green is also the founder of “Unite Blue” (@UniteBlue or #UniteBlue), about which he had this to say in February:

In August of 2012 we launched to connect the Left on Twitter. I wasn’t interested in another top-down organization. UniteBlue is a bottom-up attempt to empower activists to push their agendas. . . .
We are growing rapidly, would love to bring others on board. . . . We are also in the process of becoming a 501c4 non-profit.

The anti-Subway/anti-Limbaugh campaign would seem to be a demonstration project by Green intended to showcase the effectiveness of (a) his online prowess as a Twitter consultant, and (b) his group, Unite Blue. If he can take out this one advertiser, Green wins — he’s the Big Dog and, presumably, he gets more consulting clients.

Well . . . Hello, massive fail: Rush Limbaugh has millions of radio listeners, while Green’s supposedly influential online organization @UniteBlue has only about 18,000 followers on Twitter (fewer followers than I have as an individual) and Rush’s listeners quickly put together their own “Rush to Subway” campaign that led to crowded dining rooms and lines out the door today at lunch time.

There is a problem that the anti-Limbaugh crowd can’t seem to understand: Bad causes attract bad people. Trying to shut down the most successful talk-radio program in America — to silence dissent against the Democrat-Media Complex — is a very bad cause indeed.

Is it therefore surprising to know that one of the key activists in #UniteBlue — indeed, a board member — turned out to be a drug dealer who was fighting child pornography charges? William “Bill” Talley was exposed in May after Zack Green and #UniteBlue tried to quietly dump him from the board and hush up the scandal. On May 29, Talley was sentenced to prison at a hearing in Nashville:

Detective Chad Gish testified to THOUSANDS of images and videos William Talley had in his possession, including children as young as THREE . . .
Detective Gish also testified to credit card receipts found on Talley’s PC as proof he had been buying access to child pornography . . .
Detective Gish: “These videos were so reprehensible. A three year old girl screaming while she was being raped”

Are we really surprised that a drug dealer who buys child pornography of 3-year-old girls getting raped is a progressive activist?

And are we surprised that people like that hate Rush Limbaugh?

Sure, Rush sometimes says things that are controversial. But given a choice between America’s Truth Detector and scum like “Unite Blue,” I think decent people know what side they’re on.

Also, those Subway sandwiches were delicious.

    RSM: didn’t you or one of your commentariat make a connection of UniteBlue and Team Kimberlin recently? A mutual lawyer or NR or ???

    Segregation was imposed by your Democrats, the Party of Slavery and Genocide™ since 1828. I’m sure that makes you proud.

    100 years back? Why, that’s almost before the Constitution according to Ezra Klein. Let’s see, 100 years back when Democrat-enacted Jim Crow laws were still in effect, the Klan controlled the Democratic National Convention and striking workers were still being shot down by cops in the Democrat-controlled cities….
    That Limbaugh guy, who knew he was a Democrat?

    Of course, that WAS about four years before Woodrow WIlson got us into a World War and created his own secret police to hunt down his critics and opponents…
