In the article below, USA Today lists some of the corporate sponsors fleeing Rush Limbaugh’s show. Understand why this makes the Left giddy with delight. Is what they are doing a form of censorship? No. Corporate sponsors have every right to choose where they advertise. Nonetheless, what Rush did was the mildest form of sarcasm. Who in his or her right mind would get up in front of Congress and demand that others pay the cost of their contraceptives and not expect to be laughed at? So we punish Rush for inducing us to laugh at the ridiculous? Only ridiculous people, hypocrites who insist upon a double standard, would make such a demand.
Under attack from all sides, conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh apologized Monday for calling a female law student a “slut” and a “prostitute,” but it was not enough to stop a stream of advertisers on his nationally syndicated radio show from dropping him. (continued here)
That raises a question. How does the Left get away with such nonsense? The answer? We let them run our schools and educate us to believe that their double standard — their politically correct standard — is the only correct standard. Because they have taught us to fear the shame of being politically incorrect, we do.
Anyway, make what you want of the folks (particularly the advertisers) who have succumbed to the false guilt we call being politically incorrect (see The Origins of Political Correctness).
