“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” (Edmund Burke)
Politico.com gleefully and triumphantly posted a report that sponsors are bailing out in droves on conservative icon Rush Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated radio show in a kneejerk reaction to the predictable, leftist reaction to the Great Slut Controversy regarding liberal activist, Sandra Fluke.
Yesterday, Politico gleefully listed the following bailers: AccuQuote Life Insurance, Allstate Insurance, AOL, Bare Escentuals, Bethesda Sedation Dentistry, Bonobos, Carbonite, Cascades Dental, Citrix, Girl Scouts, Goodwill Industries, Hadeed Carpet, JCPenney, Legal Zoom, Matrix Direct, Philadelphia Orchestra, PolyCom, ProFlowers, Quicken Loans, Reputation Rhino, Sears, Sensa, Service Magic, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, St. Vincent’s Medical Center, Tax Resolution, Thompson Creek Windows and Vitacost.
I can’t vouch for Politico’s accuracy since that website has been in President Barack Hussein Obama’s vest pocket for years. The whole slut controversy has been concocted to destroy Limbaugh and to absurdly paint conservatives as anti-woman to lock up their votes for Obama in November.
As with every conservative I know, I love the fair sex.
A more reliable listing of companies and organizations which have succumbed to misguided political correctness out of pusillanimous fear of Obama’s wrath: Sleep Number, The Sleep Train, Quicken Loans, Legal Zoom, Citrix, Carbonite, ProFlowers, Tax Resolution, AOL, Bonobos, Sears, and Allstate Insurance.

It would behoove conservatives to treat all those advertisers for what they are, gutless and sycophantic Obama lackeys, by boycotting them. We have been taken for granted for too long and we possess significant buying power with which to influence them.
The Left is notorious for staging boycotts, demonstrations, and protests against any and every thing it finds offensive and it’s time for conservatives to join together en masse to assert our rights and preferences, our likes and dislikes.
Over the years, there have been myriad attacks on Rush Limbaugh. I personally don’t agree with everything he says and he can be a blowhard but he’s our blowhard, standing up for fundamental conservative principles despite his flaws. For decades, he has been our most influential advocate against leftist designs to subvert America.
He descended to the leftist level of Ed Schultz, Bill Maher, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Al Sharpton et al. by excoriating Sandra Fluke and has apologized more than once for his indiscretion. That should be enough.
Let the bailers know that conservatives are also entitled to a voice! To do otherwise is to allow Obama and his fellow leftists to squelch one of our few remaining authoritative voices and to surrender the country to selective political correctness. To do otherwise is to help re-elect Barack Hussein Obama and give him four more years to make the United States a Third World nation.
Again, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
