Democrats Launch New Petition Against Rush Limbaugh


Overconfident Dems Seek To Eliminate All Opposition

*** UPDATE: RUSH RESPONDS: "I am greatly puzzled. Why would the Democrats petition against me if I am doing such terrible damage to the GOP? Click here to send messages of love, hope and change TO ME via this petition!" ***

Clearly having learned nothing from past attempts at removing dissenting viewpoints from the airwaves, power-mad Democrats are trying once again to silence Rush Limbaugh.

In 2007, led by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Congressional Dems cooked up a pressure campaign designed to undermine Limbaugh's affiliate base and turn Clear Channel executives against the talk titan. Not only did it fail spectacularly, Rush himself used a letter from Reid to corporate management to raise millions for charity.

This time, feeling emboldened by November's election victories, Democrats are moving in for the kill. Convinced they can turn El Rushbo's refusal to join the far-left Obamists into a justification for removal from the airwaves, a petition has been created at the party's website for the sole purpose of denouncing him.

To that end, the Obamists have cooked up this propaganda piece, which fails to explain Rush's actual view on Obama and America (he's opposed to the former, but in full support of the latter):

Last week, Rush Limbaugh actually said that he "hopes" President Obama fails to meet America’s challenges.

Jobs, health care, our place in the world — the stakes for our nation are high and every American needs President Obama to succeed.

Stand strong against Rush Limbaugh’s Attacks — sign our petition, telling Rush what you think of his attacks on President Obama. We’ll send Limbaugh your comments.

Aided by their friends in the mainstream media, the Obamist tag team seeks to bully the opposition into complete submission. With a substantial chunk of the GOP already caving in under pressure, Democrats know that only conservative talk radio stands between them and a Chavez-like political coup where all criticism is wiped off the map.

It won't stop merely with "sending Rush your comments", the Obamists have declared war on the opposition and will use any means necessary to demolish dissenting viewpoints. Will independent-thinking Americans fight back?

As Limbaugh himself explained during Tuesday's broadcast, it's Obama that wants Rush to fail as much as the opposite might be true:

CALLER: Well, Rush, I just want to say that I'm definitely a part of your 1% club. Article 1, Section 8 in the Ninth and Tenth Amendment basically say in plain terms Congress keep your hands off the private sector and the free market. There's nowhere in the Constitution where it says that they have the right for bailouts, to take control of the private sector. I applaud what you're doing, and count me in that 1%. If people want to buy a jet, let 'em buy a jet.

RUSH: Well, you know, there have been people raise questions about the constitutionality of the bailouts on the basis that you've mentioned, but somebody's gotta bring the case. Somebody's gotta bring it up. Nobody's going to bring the case that it's unconstitutional, on whatever grounds that you decide. Therefore, we're back to where we always are: the constant informing and educating of the American people.

And, by the way, we're talking about hope and change? I'm reeeally looking for some hope and change. And one of my big hopes is that at some point enough Americans finally wake up and say, "Wait a minute! We're fed up with the way you people are spending money here." We can hope. We just had a campaign on it. And I'm hoping, and I'm hoping for immediate change, and I'll tell you this: the president of the United States hopes I fail. Try that.

All of this should serve as a wake-up call to conservatives: not only must they fight the Obamist left with everything they've got, but it is also absolutely necessary to remove the inept Republican leaders who have been sucked into Barack's creepy political cult.

Thankfully for America, cocky Democrats have once again misread the political tea leaves and wildly underestimated the resolve of patriotic Americans to preserve their cherished way of life.

  • I note the propaganda goes on youtube, but when an opposing voice goes up, it gets taken down.

    Youtube is not a fair arbiter of anything.

  • I feel this anti-Rush movement is going to backfire on those who created it and those encouraging it.

  • I totally agree with Rush on this.. I have already sent a couple of messages to the DCCC calling their petition against Rush a TOTAL LOAD OF GARBAGE..

  • The way the petition against Rush works is that you can make a positive comment and send it then hit the back button and send it again and again and again... You get the idea and so will they till they change the way their system records the emails. Clog it up, Clog it up, Clog it up...

  • Thank you for you website. May Obama fail to turn the United States into the socialist states.

  • Nice post, Brian. Wondering what happened to all the hoopla of dissent being patriotic when Bush was our President? This guy, loved blindly by an enormous, scarily enormous number of people worldwide, can withstand no dissent? WTH?

    So, nice post, Brian, I think it's going to be quite a struggle and perhaps sending conservatives going crazy after threats to free speech and private enterprise is simply a distraction to hide something else the adminstration is trying to pull.

  • This is how I commented on this idiotic petition:
    Rush Limbaugh is the BEST thing to happen to America since Ronald Reagan. GOD BLESS RUSH IN HIS FIGHT AGAINST SOCIALIST, POPULIST, Collectivist GOVERNMENT CONTROL of the first and only nation in the history of man to FREE us from the tyranical control of government. Rush = Freedom and a nation that has done more in 250 years to bring the standard of living for humanity to an unequaled peak, than all others combined. Socialism will never win in the end. We as Conservatives are here and we will fight untill our last breath for Freedom NOT Government destruction of families and the most vulnerable among us.
    God Bless you Rush, we are behind you till the end.

  • Here is what I posted on the Demon-crats petition site;

    I too hope Obama fails in his drive to turn the USA into a Socialist "Paradise" you morons believe in. You are truly brain dead to allow the government to take our freedoms wholesale. I pray and work for another '94 election for you dumbells in 2010. Rush is right and you are stupid, immoral and cunning devils.

    Says it all, don't you think !!!

    Fight them with the one thing they cannot stand...truth.
    Email, blog, make telephone calls etc..
    I for one will defend Rush and anyone else that represents my political views.
    Let our voices be heard!

  • God Bless you, Rush!!! I know you are pulling for freedom-loving Americans. I stand with you!!

    Thanks for reminding us every week what a great Nation we ARE. Free to have our own thoughts. Free to speak our minds whether over the airwaves or to whomever. Free to own a firearm. Free to serve God or NOT. It is called LIBERTY. An idea that is fundamental to this NATION!!! Maybe you DemocRATS need to study your own US history. Afterall, this is still the USA at least for now, anyway!!

  • Excellent work!

    I've already used the Dem's comment link in reverse (a number of times actually! LOL!) suggesting that instead of wasting their time trying to silence Rush Limbaugh and stifle free speech, they concentrate on doing something that DOES accord with our Constitution and laws:

  • I left a Pro-Rush comment on the Ballot before I knew anyone else was. This is GREAT!

    Then I found out that Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga lashed out at Rush. (Link to Politico at I went to Rep. Gingrey's website and left the following message:

    Dear Honorable Representative Phil Gingrey,

    I am writing in response to your recent comments about Rush Limbaugh and your enamored assessment of the Republican leadership.

    How is it possible that a country birthed out of the blood of Patriots has come to be dominated - in 3 and a half out of four bodies of government - by a party characterized by sedition, subversion, comfort and aid to the enemy, and incitement to discontent, all during the time of war - which we all know emboldened our enemies and caused additional deaths of our solders... A Party that did this through a consistent collaborative barrage of lies and bungled false accusations against the President of the United States... A Party which was repeatedly embarrassed by making public pronouncements and accusations which were proven wrong in subsequent developments - time after time after time - against the POTUS, the war, the solders, the commanders and our Allies... A DEATH Party that seeks to reduce worldwide population through genocidal pre and post-natal convenience deaths... a Party that robs from the "rich" to buy off the "poor?"

    How do we find ourselves dominated by this repulsive band of America hijackers?

    You, Sir, are the reason. You and your Republican colleagues. Where were you in 2002 when you assumed office and the Democrat Party was shedding every pretense of 9/11 unity and American Pride?

    When their false accusations began to fly, did you challenge their course audacity with a press conference on the steps of the Capital? Did you grab microphones and Weekend News shows to defend and support President Bush? Did you staunchly, unflinchingly become a vocal repudiator of the escalation of insults, accusations of stupidity, Away Without Leave, draft favors, stolen elections, incompetence, avoidance of pre-war diplomacy and much, much more, ad nauseum? In spite of the fact that NONE OF THESE ACCUSATIONS WERE TRUE... were you outraged?

    Did you scream, shout, and jump in front of cameras and microphones when the Republican majority was expanding government and spending beyond the Liberals wildest Dreams.

    When President Bush was right, you nor the Republicans stood behind him. When he was wrongly pressing for unprecedented expansion of Government your Party did not effectively oppose him.

    I am sure you remember, when President Bush was elected and re-elected, how the Minority kicked and screamed that "Bush was the president of everyone," and your "Leadership," acquiesced with the minority's demands that Republicans must play nice, give them good committee appointments and abstain from pursuing the Conservative agenda. As you recall, all but a few tip-toed around the Capital trying to prove to the Dems and the Big Media that you deserved to be liked, that you were "NICE Republicans."

    I have to say sir, I never heard of you before your strike at Rush Limbaugh.

    Why couldn't you have been as eager to be publicly vocal for President Bush and Conservative Principles as you have already demonstrated that you are for President Obama, i.e. publicly supporting his criticism of Rush Limbaugh.

    My friend, you and your colleagues have problems that make Rush Limbaugh look like a flea on a beach ball.

    May God help us all to have the courage to live to the Death for truth and honor which transcends all time.

    Humbly submitted, to stir and redirect your courage,

  • Interesting read.How Long Do We Have Left?About the time our original thirteen states adopted their new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:
    "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government".
    "A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury".
    "From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship".
    "The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years".
    "During those 200 years, those nations always progressed through the following sequence:

    1. from bondage to spiritual faith.
    2. from spiritual faith to great courage.
    3. from courage to liberty.
    4. from liberty to abundance.
    5. from abundance to complacency.
    6. from complacency to apathy.
    7. from apathy to dependence.
    8. from dependence back into bondage.

  • I did business in CA and had to quit because of the Dem. high taxes. I sold my stocks at 14000+ and paid off my house. Praise God! I have never felt so free!!! How is it the Dems and Repub. think that Spending is Freedom!!. The market will correct itself if you give the people their money so they can take advantage of the lower prices.

  • Personally I petitioned with the reversal. I let them know that Free Speech is free speech. Let the man be... He can say what ever he wants, especially if they do not like it. I think they are twisting his words as well. He said he hopes that Obama "fails" because he does not want Obama's "solutions" in America. It makes sense and either side would say something similar. People are a little to naive/ignorant. Also, Obama supporters are really touchy!

    I told my readers to do the same and we will see what happens...

    “30,000 have signed so far, help get 50,000 comments to Rush.”

    Added my longwinded rant, many times to the effort:

    El Rushbo is firmly on the side of every hardworking, taxpaying American citizen unlike our brand new “New Deal” President who has clearly declared his full support for millions of Illegal Aliens. There are reports of over 20 million Illegal Aliens who’re presently in our USA working hard as economic slaves for unscrupulous employers at jobs American citizens are allegedly” unwilling to do.”

    President Obama has already indicated he’s pro-Illegal Alien and looking for ways to help them. Along with his helping hand for Illegal Aliens our President is also aiding their unscrupulous anti-American employers who’re 21st century slave-masters.

    Pres. Obama currently is proposing to spend about $850 billion over two years that he asserts is intended to stimulate the economy and thereby add 3-4 million jobs that otherwise would not exist. What a load of BS, Piled High & Deep. That’s three to four million of new phantom jobs in an employment environment teeming with the real world reality of thousands of daily job cuts.

    Honestly whose side are DemocRatz and our new “New Deal” President on? It certainly looks as though DemocRatz are raging megalomaniacs in search of more and more power, unconcerned of the plight of millions of hard working, productive, taxpaying American citizens.

    Our USA is teetering on the edge of another depression and president Obama wants to add to the tax burden of already overtaxed Americans, shame on you Mr. President. Get our FedGov out of the way of American workers and their employers and block the way of a continued invasion of Illegal Aliens. To quote a former president “it’s the economy stupid,” so help Americans Mr. President not screw them with Trillion Dollar Boondoggles. Just whose side are you really on?

    Conservatives have always known you DemocRatz are only one sided, your neocomm/socialist side. Through your anti-American attempts at stifling dissent the majority of American Citizens are clearly seeing you DemocRatz as you really are, evil power mad anti-American megalomaniacs.

  • When ever mindless moonbats attempt to debate they’re quickly in over their heads. That’s when the fun begins and those silly dimbulb lib-bots expose the shallowness of their intellects by resorting to posting irrelevant, nonsensical questions or boorish attacks and cowardly threats of violence. They’re such a waste of living matter, it may be that DemocRatz and the Obamanation are made up of odious mounds of steaming waste matter, Piled High & Deep.

    (1) Define “the Rich.” They couldn’t be those who provide employment for hard working, taxpaying American citizens, or perhaps it is them? Please clarify.
    (2) Define your 95%.
