Politico Excerpt:Not from this Lefty. I for one insist that the right-wing talkers continue their daily ritual of bomb-throwing and ignorance. We must not let it fester under cover or become artificial. It needs to be drawn out into the light.
Conservative talkers like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity are rallying their listeners with a very old — and very successful — battle cry, accusing the left of trying to curb their free speech.
Bliss Com's Dan Conry for instance is a card-carrying foot soldier for the right-wing echo chamber ruled by phlegm master, Rush Limbaugh. Once the choking reflux can no longer be contained by Rush, the bile soon flows through the rest of the AM borg where it is carried and regurgitated by the likes of Conry sitting in the WCLO radio room. Conry has not been shy about his hatred for the left, progressives or democrats here in southern Wisconsin and neither has Bliss by hiring him. He has called nearly everyone not going along with their brand of extremism a Socialist or Communist.
In a recent post about Conry, I insisted that he must not hide his bigotry or cave in to his GOP establishment pay masters to "tone down" the rhetoric. God-fearing fundamental Americans need to hear the real right-wing talkers in all their naked glory. Some might think all the attention is ultimately very good for talk radio. That it's just entertainment. We'll see. Particularly if that's true on a local scale and what effect it will have on advertisers and a community the size of Janesville when Conry's victims decide to throw some of the entertainment back.
By choosing Conry, Bliss Com has clearly gone on the offensive and made their extremist views local and more vocal. We're just beginning to warm up to Conry so I hope he does not go soft on us. There are already signs that he's trying to isolate liberals by gravitating towards the center. Don't "wimp out" on us - keep those guns blazing.
"I tell people don't kill all the liberals. Leave enough so we can have two on every campus - living fossils - so we will never forget what these people stood for." -- Rush Limbaugh
"My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times building." -- Ann Coulter
"I'll tell you who should be tortured and killed at Guantanamo -- every filthy Democrat in the U.S. Congress." -- Sean Hannity
"To fight only the al-Qaeda scum is to miss the terrorist network operating within our own borders ... Who are these traitors? Every rotten radical left-winger in this country, that's who." -- Michael Savage
"I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you... I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good... Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called by God, to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism." --Randall Terry, former head of Operation Rescue.
