Rush Limbaugh Producer: Mainstream Media Want to Take Down Champions of Conservatism
Rush Limbaugh’s producer James Golden (“Bo Snerdley”) said the mainstream media and the left relentlessly try to take down those who champion conservatism so they can more easily convince the American people that the liberal point of view is the majority opinion. More often than not, that is simply not the case.
Golden appeared with Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon on Breitbart News’ broadcast of the “Exempt America” rally on Tuesday.
“If the great fighters are taken out, then the fight can be dismantled,” he said, noting that sometimes the left aims to constantly put conservatives “under siege” and lies about and smears them in order to discourage the Americans for whom they are fighting.
“The left is relentless; they don’t give up,” he said. “Any story that has a political implication, they’re there.” He said the left is trying to populate “whatever media source you’re going to,” and the mainstream media try to “make it appear that the majority opinion is their opinion” when in fact it often is not, which he said was the case with Obamacare. Golden emphasized that a majority of Americans has consistently not supported President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare legislation.
Golden said the American people never wanted an Obamacare bill that was passed solely with “Democratic votes.” He noted that when “voters had a chance to react to that” in the 2010 midterm elections, “they threw Democrats out in record numbers.”
Golden also said Americans who may not know the details about Obamacare will soon find out that they will only be able to work 29 hours per week because employers will not want to pay fines associated with the employer mandate. He said the people who will suffer the most under Obamacare will be entry-level workers and people at the bottom of the economic ladder. He noted seniors would also suffer because doctors are not going to take less money to do more work. Ultimately, Golden said, Obamacare will create more “chaos” that will lead to a system “that doesn’t work” because Americans will still be uninsured.
Great panel on Hannity! There was a long discussion on the issue of, “What’s the appropriate term for us?”
Is African-American ok or not ok? Is Black-American ok or not ok? I tolerate either term, but neither are my preference.
“African” is not a term that accurately defines us. Africa is a continent, not an ethnicity.
Africa has many tribes, countries, cultures, languages, etc. The continent of Africa encompasses both Ethiopian descendants, Egyptian descendants, Arabian descendants, Libyan descendants, and Jewish descendants. So to be “black” is not an exclusive distinction of what it is to be African. Besides, a continent named after a Roman doesn’t describe, “black” to me.
As a Bible believing Christian, I accept the title of the progenitor of our ethnicity, the grandson of Noah; Cush. Therefore I consider myself a Cushite or Nubian.
I’ve told that to some of my friends who are of the Caucasian persuasion (or Nordic or European. Honestly, I’m not sure what’s appropriate for y’all. It was a heavy enough journey narrowing it down to the more appropriate term for my ethnicity! Sheeesh!) Any way. As I was saying. Some white people have responded saying, “Cushite or Nubian is not going to fly.” To which I’ve responded as tactfully as possible. “Are we going to continue with what white people are deciding what we’re fit to be called?”
Man, the answer to where we’ve descended from has been under our nose the whole time. But that’s the Bible for ya. The truth written, right under our nose.
I don’t care for being hyphenated. There’s no use for it unless the info is vital. I’m an American. If you’re concerned with what my ethnicity is, it is either Cushite or the synonymous term, Nubian, not African,
As I’m not the descendant of a continent. I’m the descendant of original tribes that initiated our race by God’s design, as pointed out in the Bible.
Sorry if other ethnicities will feel awkward or silly about addressing us as Cushite or Nubian, but from the looks of it they STILL feel awkward and stumble over how to address us anyway!
So if y’all are going to feel awkward about how to address us, at least feel awkward about getting used to addressing us by the correct term.
And I know many are going to say, “How about I just call you American, or friend, or brother, patriot, etc. What does it matter? We’re all human, and all children of God.”
I really appreciate that! I really do. But God named His children who would be the progenitors. They had distinguishing characteristics.
If it was important enough for God to create these varieties, it’s probably important that we acknowledge and appreciate what He’s done. We don’t unify by ignoring our ethnic differences. That takes far more effort than acknowledging our differences and just moving on regardless, and not being hung up on it like liberals; Who like to pat them selves on the back for being tolerant of other ethnicities.
People want to avoid this, because they don’t want to be wrong or feel dumb in the effort.
This ain’t no lame exercise in divisive, complicating, political correctness. It’s actually the path of least resistance, with the most redeeming value.
I’m not color blind. God didn’t make us different shades just so we could assume a monochromatic view.
Colors are beautiful. See them.
With all due respect, saying things like, “What does it matter? We’re all human.” is to be dismissive of a problem that won’t go away, because people keep trying to sweep the issue under the rug, and there are those that keep shaking the rug to redeposit the dust all over the house.
In closing. I don’t feel the need to point out ethnicity, unless it’s vital info, like describing a patient or something.
But if I’m going to do a speaking engagement, there’s really no need to label me a “Black-Conservative”. Conservatives are smart enough to see what my ethnicity is when I take the stage, and deep enough to judge me by my character. Also, we agree that being a hyphenated American, sucks. Why would we be ok with being hyphenated conservatives or hyphenated republicans? We gotta be consistent, right?
That being said, if it’s necessary to point out our ethnicity, I would say the most acceptable term is “black”, and the more accurate terms are Cushite or Nubian. I’d narrow it down to those. Use at your discretion.
Hope that’s helpful!
“How many children have to die, black and white, for us to come to the conclusion that most of the gun violence is in cities with the most gun control?
“The National Rifle Association was started, founded by religious leaders who wanted to protect free slaves from the Ku Klux Klan,” said Alford.
“This current administration is far from the truth,” said William Owens Jr., founder of God, Guns and the Constitution.
“When they take our guns, they will also seek to take our God, and that’s when Americans will fight back.”
