Kathy Shaidle is a blogging pioneer whose FiveFeetOfFury.com is now in its 12th year. Her most recent book – "The Tyranny of Nice: How Canada Crushes Freedom in the Name of Human Rights, and Why It Matters to Americans" – features an introduction by Rush Limbaugh guest host Mark Steyn.More ↓Less ↑
As anyone could have predicted, the widely touted “progressive” boycott of Rush Limbaugh and his advertisers has ended in disaster.
Limbaugh is new to Twitter but is already proving to be a force in that medium as well. After he told his followers about a “must see” video, showing union thugs terrorizing a family, the clip quickly spread across the Internet (FREE video).
Michael Savage started the week by explaining to listeners why he’d initially avoided talking about the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case.
“I didn’t touch on this story at first because the very idea that an unarmed black teenager being hunted down and shot by a Neighborhood Watch commander was a disgusting, horrible idea,” he explained.
However, as more details emerged that contradicted the narrative of the media and professional race baiters, Savage felt compelled to comment. Now Americans are learning from the official police report that “Trayvon decked Zimmerman with one blow, and then began hammering on his head. There’s a witness to that. Then it says Trayvon climbed on top of Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk, leaving him bloody and battered” (FREE audio).
Savage also went after actress Alicia Silverstone, who reportedly pre-chews her baby’s food and spits it in his mouth – in public! Whether or not this is the latest Hollywood parenting fad, Savage condemned the practice as something rightly regulated to primitive tribes, and mocked Silverstone for trying to “act like one of the people” (FREE audio).
Two high-powered experts joined Sean Hannity to talk about the Supreme Court hearings on Obamacare (FREE audio).
At the time of the interview, ObamaCare looked like it was in serious peril, with justices questioning the law’s constitutionality.
Dr. Cathleen London observed, “If the government can compel you to buy health insurance to solve a national problem, why can’t they force you to buy a GM car to rescue Detroit, or stocks or bonds to prop up Wall Street? Is there any limit to what the Federal Government can force you to buy or do?”
This week on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” Klein accused race baiter Al Sharpton (and even President Obama) of possibly inciting race riots over the Trayvon Martin shooting. He also looked at whether or not France was underplaying its domestic jihad problem, even in the wake of the Toulouse massacre. Klein also offered listeners a disturbing look “inside the mind of Saul Alinsky,” and much more (FREE audio).
Laura Ingraham’s most surprising guest in a long time was former President Jimmy Carter, who startled Laura and her listeners when he declared that his party should become more pro-life, not only to possibly regain popularity but because, he said, “I have never believed that Jesus Christ would approve of abortions” (FREE audio).
Among Ingraham’s other guests this week were Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann, as well as Ken Cuccinelli, the attorney general for Virginia, who discussed what he saw while attending the Supreme Court oral arguments regarding ObamaCare.
In an op-ed in the religion section at CNN.com, Glenn Beck suggested that whenever the government shrinks, ordinary Americans should increase the level of their charitable giving.
“Savings in government waste and inefficiency can only go so far,” Beck explained. “It’s up to all of us to demand of ourselves that we pick up the slack.”
And now, from the left side of the dial …
It’s a good thing we can’t see a liar’s nose growing over the radio!
Al Sharpton did his best Pinocchio impression on his show this week, having the gall to assure a caller that he has ever called the Trayvon Martin shooting racially motivated (FREE audio).
As Brian Maloney of Radio Equalizer put it, Sharpton’s dangerous rhetoric has gotten so bad that even liberals like Margaret Carlson are criticizing him now.
Maloney adds: “Sharpton’s recent antics have been so overt and brazen, it’s hard to believe he’d even attempt to claim otherwise. Just two minutes of his increasingly hysterical MSNBC program will clear up any viewer’s confusion.”
Indeed. However, I doubt MSNBC will ever fire Sharpton. After all, he would probably sue them for racial discrimination!
