Pearls of wisdom?

"There might be a way out of this for Bashar Assad, and that is to join the Communist Party. The Democrats will not go after a communist. John Kerry tried to stop all aid to the Contra's to prop up the communist government in Nicaragua. And it wasn't just John Kerry, it was all the Democrats. If Bashar Assad would somehow start quoting Marx and aligning himself with that way of thinking, it would give Obama and his bunch pause."


This was Rush Limbaugh:http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2013/09/03/pearls_of_wisdom

According to this station, he "is the most listened to radio talk show in America", with over 600......600...THAT WAS SIX-ZERO-ZERO......radio stations playing his little...."pearls": http://connecticut.cbslocal.com/show/rush-limbaugh/
Why are so many folks listening to this guy? Do you think folks are influenced by people like him at election seasons, or at times when we should be protesting our governments actions/inaction?

Does this indicate that the majority of people who take him seriously are not sane enough to really determine if we need to drop high powered ordnance around innocent folks (oh....of course it would be PURELY for their own good...OFC. Not at all beneficial for U.S. government contractor pockets... NEVER'S!)?

Sorry for putting my opinions in here, but I don't really get much chance to share my opinions with friends/a-girlfriend, so you have to put up with it. Me is truly sorry. Sad[/url]

So your friends and girlfriends have too much sense to believing a lying hater like Limbaugh?

Sorry, but do you really need to be told how many tons of BS and hate you absorb per hour when you listen to Limbaugh? You're not doing yourself a favor; you could be sabotaging your own mind. Are you aware of the hundreds of advertisers who have pulled their ads from his show because of his lies and ugliness? Are you aware that he gets money directly from think tanks to tell the corporate/right wing hype? Turn it off, listen to NPR for a while (rated as the most balanced network in terms of Republican-Democrat views, almost 50-50).

LOL...I actually agree with you. My way of writing may have confused you and lead you to believe I believe the guy... Razz My whole point with this post is that he doesn't have a rational mindset and yet he has a huge audience. If he is a nutter, should Americans who honestly depend on him for their info and "insight" also nutters themselves? That was my point in posting. Again, I agree with you...

Oops. sorry for the misunderstanding.

So back to your original question, why do people listen to him (and the hundreds other like him on the talk radio stations of the USA)? I am sure many millions of words have been written analyzing this. Off the top of my head:

1. People like to have their prejudices confirmed. White privilege.
2. because it's the only political thing on the radio
3. People like to feel smart and informed even if they are dumb and ignorant
4. sadomasochism is a force that compels many people.
5. There are so many RWNJ shows on the radio that the insane nonsense starts to sound true because so many people are saying the same thing in so many different places (included FOX, which is often the same message as Limbaugh but watered down to be less offensive).
6. Some white people with underlying prejudice like to be told that they are victims of discrimination
7. Some people who feel they are not successful like to be told that it's someone else's fault, like other races are interfering with them, that liberals are taking all their money
8. Okay, this one is harsh, but there are some real BS ideas in the USA that many people embrace. Gun love, USA#1, if you are poor it's your fault, why should I have to pay for anybody's healthcare/education/fire safety/parks and recreation...

By the way, about 2., sports radio is apparently 10 times more popular and listened to than the "conservative" talk shows.
