Rush-Media Research Center Update

I’m a subscriber to Media Research Center and in my previous posts here , and here I published a few petitions to sign. These petitions ARE NOT simply a support of Rush, but are also a support of the First Amendment Rights of ALL people, not just the left. And the left is trying to shut down YOUR First Amendment Rights whenever someone on the right calls them on their nonsense and exposes the truth behind their lies.

It seems it’s okay for the left to twist, spin and outright lie (in recent days about what Rush said, even with a full transcript AND video available AND about the actual need of the Frost family for government healthcare). For the right to expose the truth is unforgivable.

In other words, they can dish it out but they can’t take it.

When they get their knickers in a twist the entire government comes to a screeching halt–thereby wasting MORE of yours and my tax dollars because their feelings are hurt. Then they try to dust off the “Fairness Doctrine”.

Here is a rather chilling quote from the American Spectator regarding how the left intends to shut down your right–and Rush’s and everyone else who doesn’t goosestep to the left–to free speech:

Rep. Henry Waxman has asked his investigative staff to begin compiling reports on Limbaugh, and fellow radio hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin based on transcripts from their shows, and to call in Federal Communications Commission chairman Kevin Martin to discuss the so-called “Fairness Doctrine.”

“Limbaugh isn’t the only one who needs to be made uncomfortable about what he says on the radio,” says a House leadership source. “We don’t have as big a megaphone as these guys, but this all political, and we’ll do what we can to gain the advantage. If we can take them off their game for a while, it will help our folks out there on the campaign trail.”

Now, if you want to stand up and fight for your right to speak as you choose, without censorship, stand with Rush on this one. Yes, Rush is one of–if not THE most–successful media personality out there today and he represents the conservatives on many issues. He is also a symbol of our free speech rights. If the left succeeds in taking him down, what do you think will happen to the free speech right of John Q. Public?

Rush didn’t lie. The left did and does. Support Rush now to protect us later.

Here is the email I received from MRC, and the links to follow. One link has quotes from the MSM and the left, showing their quotes and how they have all twisted and spun. It’s actually pretty funny, so I’d recommend heading over there.

[Redacted]:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is continuing his campaign
against Rush!

Despite clear evidence to the contrary (including Rush's
staunch support of the troops and their mission), Reid and
other liberal elites are seeking to score political points
with their base by misrepresenting what Rush said.

Last week, Reid and 40 other Senators sent a letter of
complaint to Clear Channel CEO Mark Mays demanding Rush
apologize. Now they're urging DSCC supporters to follow suit.

Read the story as reported by our own CNSNews.com:

In addition to Reid's actions, American Spectator reports:
"Rep. Henry Waxman has asked his investigative staff to
begin compiling reports on Limbaugh, and fellow radio
hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin based on transcripts
from their shows, and to call in Federal Communications
Commission
chairman Kevin Martin to discuss the so-called
'Fairness Doctrine.'"

Liberal mouthpieces like MSNBC's Chris Matthews and Keith
Olbermann
continue to harp on Rush's "phony soldier" quote
to their audiences as well.

Don't let the liberal elite force Rush off the radio!

++ Citizen Letter Condemning Reid’s Actions

To counter Reid's attack, the MRC launched a national Citizen
Letter condemning Reid’s actions that will be delivered to
both Reid and Clear Channel. Already, 26,047
citizens have added their name, with hundreds more
signing every hour.

[Redacted], help us reach our goal by doing the following:

Tell your friends now that in addition to adding their
names to our Citizen Letter, they can also send personal

Bozell will deliver!

message to Rush:

We’re counting on the MRC Action Team to help us reach our goal of
50,000 signatures. Help us effectively counter this baseless
attack by forwarding this message to your friends today.

We cannot afford to allow the liberals in America to silence
talk radio, and especially not Rush! But only if we take action
now can we stop the latest attack.

Thank you for taking action with us.
