Rush Limbaugh, The Koch Brothers And The Right Wing Echo Chamber [Video]

Rush Limbaugh serves as an essential mouthpiece of the hard right, so it really should come as no surprise he would attack Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke. After all he’s gone after just about every woman who has dared stand up to the right.

And as we’ve seen with Limbaugh’s defenders and the slow trickle of disapproval from Republicans, it’s clear he voiced a deep truth of the right when he attacked Fluke just as when he joined the Koch Brothers in their battle with the Obama administration over campaign finance reform.

Going after Limbaugh and the sponsors that allow him to spew his bile is a critical and important, and part of that is understanding the role Limbaugh plays within the Republican establishment.

Rush's newest sponsor, "dead air," has already asked that it no longer be associated with his show.

Unfortunately this article makes no mention of the most nefarious of the Koch Bros.'s desires, which is the dismantling of public education.

Here in PA their puppets in Harrisburg are systematical de-funding both secondary education and the land grant colleges, and attempting to use state funds for financing private & religious schools, even though the PA Constitution requires the former and forbids the latter.

Redirect: Sarah Palin, I do trust whole-heartedly, this women who supports verbal bullying to gain males of like-mind votes and support of any kind - will not win votes for Presidency or any other office for that matter. Ability to white-wash this comment is now under severe scrutiny and supports reasons why people like myself place her under cautious scrutiny to begin with. My instincts do not fail me often.

Please let it be known, this is the last word I wish to speak or hear on this matter, truly, as he is no longer worth hearing - until he is worth listening to. I refuse to waste any more of my time or yours - listening to my thoughts ------> regarding R.L. and his bullying, yes, bullying antics. We need more GOOD news aired.

It sounds like you are talking about things only intimate partners would know for sure when you are talking about David Brock's sexuality and when you capitalize a word that does not warrant capitalization it usually is out of anger about the word, did someone rebuff your gay advances??? And the man who has done the most damage to America by promoting right-wing propaganda as "news" in the media is none other than "foreigner MultiBillionaire" Rupert Murdoch ( I want to see the investigation of any wire-tapping done on 9/11 families to proceed as fast as the investigation tearing down his media empire in England)

Sarah Palin, Laura Ingraham and Michelle Malkin are all trailer-park, Right-trash queens who have used every expletive known only to truckers and seamen when deriding anyone left of Ghengis Khan. This was a young girl who had done nothing wrong but-- OMFG, she tried to testify on an all male panel testifying about female contraceptives that Republican males had her removed from and Rush Limpballs went off on her like the scum he has always been and it is not only calling her what he did but also to say this young lady should somehow help Rash get his jollies off by video-taping her having sex and posting it online for his pleasure. You are the lowest of the low for trying to defend the indefensible. I hope we can get all his sponsors to drop him because this time he went way to far by dumping on a young girl like that. You want anyone to STFU why not come up here and make me, I will show you just as much of "compassion, understanding and tolerance" as you have shown with to that young lady with your inane post and just as much as you probably have with anyone unlucky enough to be trapped within hearing distance of your pitiful life...
