Megalomania FTW. For the record, I never disliked Rush, I just graduated from listening to him, to thinking for myself. I’m sure he would be proud.
From 1988 to 1997 it was me and then some of my guest hosts got their own radio shows, and then about 1996 or ’97 here came Fox News.
Then the blogosphere sprung up and websites and the so-called conservative media was born. And that’s when the left began to lose their monopoly on everything. And when they lost the monopoly, that’s when they became partisan participants.
Having driven through “Rush Country” while crossing the plains, it’s always been clear to me he has held the biggest racist dog whistle for decades. Racists love Rush for the same reason they love Trump, he empowers them to be bolder and come out of the shadows.
And from that, you get to this particularly great example of bad optics. That’s a Neo-Nazi convict on the left and Georgia’s freshman GOP senator on the right, who claims to not know who this dude was and so nothing wrong here, ignoring the reason he showed up in the first place: he feels safe with her.
The issue with overusing “partisan” is people kind of forget its definition: combatant, and THIS particular partisan here would have no problem picking up a machine gun and mowing down black protesters, while claiming to be a patriot protecting the country.
