The Rush Limbaugh media lynch mob

It's amazing how much of the US media's job the British media are doing these days. Is The Telegraph on sale in America?

"As Mark Steyn points out, in this instance it’s for Limbaugh to prove the negative – an impossible task. And Dan Calebrese asks why if Limbaugh really is a racist then it takes bogus quotes to “prove” that he is?"

To answer that question we turn to the left's playbook "Alinsky's Rules for Radicals".

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

For the left, including the left wing media, it doesn't even matter if the "personalized criticism" is true or not as long as it works.

RULE 5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

Thanks to the Internet and blogs, the right have begun to use these tactics against the left. The reason the right have begun to be more effective than the left at this is, the right uses video and audio tape to prove they are accurate while the left just lie. The more the right expose the left's lies and the media's complicity in spreading the lies, the more the left are being marginalized. And that's a good thing, a very good thing.
