Rush Limbaugh: Conservatives Have No Credibility With Low-Info Crowd Because We Don’t Defend Our Own

Since the reelection of failed President Barack Obama conservatives have been asking what we can do to compete with the Obama-media complex. How do we compete with a left-wing media that has declared war on conservatism?

Today Rush offered a bit of advice on this important subject.
Rush’s advice – Unite!
From The Rush Limbaugh Show, via Free Republic:

Last night at the Golden Globes, Kathryn and I watched this HBO movie Game Change, the movie adaptation of the book. I told you we watched it and if it weren’t for the fact that we were working, we’da walked out. It was a cartoon. The book was not primarily about Palin, but the movie was all about Palin, and it mischaracterized her, it insulted her, it told things that were not true about her, from the standpoint of McCain campaign consultants. People like Steve Schmidt.

** Video Here.

The critics of Sarah Palin in this movie were other Republicans. How embarrassed of her they were. How ashamed of her they were. How they couldn’t even vote for McCain because they were so afraid that she might someday be president. Well, this show last night won three Golden Globes, and you know why? It won three Golden Globes so that everybody involved could walk up to the stage and once again bash Sarah Palin, knowing full well there wouldn’t be anybody there to defend her, knowing full well there isn’t gonna be anybody today defending her. And once the left targets anybody for destruction, there’s nothing standing in their way. So this is the procedure, this is how it happens. But even last night, awarding this movie three Golden Globes, and Julianne Moore, the actress that played Palin, I don’t know if she won a Golden Globe or not.

Tina Fey, the last year that I was on the list of Barbara Walters’ top Ten Most Fascinating Americans, the last time was two or three years ago, Tina Fey was in it for impersonating Sarah Palin, one of the Ten Most Fascinating People. She didn’t make it as Tina Fey, she made it as Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. She ended up being one of Barbara Walters’ Ten Most Fascinating because of her impersonation of Palin. Meanwhile, Palin is not in the list, and yet an impersonator is. So it’s clear as a bell to me why it’s tough to find a conservative in the media with any credibility with low-information voters. Every one of them has been taken out. There are other reasons why conservatives aren’t defended. The conservative movement is in a constant battle for people in it who want to be seen as the leader, who want to be seen as the smartest person in the room, who want to be seen as the go-to person.

And so somebody getting a lot of media attention is a threat, just in a high school jealousy sense, is a threat. So you take ’em out, you help take ’em out. It keeps the pathway cleared for you, whoever you are, if you want to be the go-to conservative for the media or the leader of the conservative movement or what have you, if you want to be perceived as such. So competition, lack of unity, fear of the left and a desire to be accepted by them all combine to result in conservative after conservative after conservative being tarred and feathered. And if they’re Tea Party conservatives, it’s even worse. They are universally panned, and they are never spoken up for by other Republicans.

Okay, I’m told Julianne Moore did win a Golden Globe. Well, even if she hadn’t won, they woulda sent her up there to accept the award for one of the other three so that she could once again bash Palin, ’cause they never let up. All right, that’s that. I wanted to get that out there because everybody calls here, and they have ever since I’ve been doing the show, “Rush, what can Republicans do?” The first thing they can do is unite. The first thing they can do is unite and start defending each other and not letting this character assassination succeed every time the left tries it.

    Wrong Rush Limbaugh we have credibility only difference is Low Info illogical crowd Socialist Democrat Commie will shut their ears from logical informative information after we defend ourselves in debate.

  • Stella Baskomb

    Good counter-example: Bill Clinton campaigned for Obama in 2012 even though he likely dislikes him personally because of the rough treatment Obama gave Hillary in the 2008 primaries.

    But Clinton the politician knew that electing a Democrat was more important that defeating a personal enemy.

    We do have a problem with too many in the GOP who can’t seem to wait to be the first to criticize whomever has offended their sensibilities. The dems circle the wagons no matter what. We throw our people to the wolves.


    How can the GOP come together when those in charge, the establishment, are progressives.

    Conservatives need to come together and delete the GOP.

    Leave it to Rush to tell it like it is-he’s right. I may not agree with him 100, but he is right on this point! Bravo, Rush!

    Look as far back as like, and you will find that Demoncraps get caught with their pants down, and the party and rank and file support them. A Republican gets caught in an indiscretion and both sides crucify him or her. What the D’S and The elite R’S did to Palin was a pity, but lets check who really killed Palins chances, not the D’S, every thing they tried backfired. No my friends it was our own so called friends. You all saw it here, with any Palin thread a herd of Romneyites and elitist came and bad mouthed her with lies and the repeat of rumors. I myself think that every candidate the tea party nominated the elites helped the left to defeat them and then called them out as weak candidates. Over and over this was played out. We must cleanse our own or we will perish.

    The silence from Rush, Levin, and Hannity concerning the forged BC. , the stolen SS number , the forged selective service application etc,etc…… well I have to say leaves me speechless. their silence betrays their fear of this government.

  • jainphx

    Rove proved that the “elites” would rather a Dem win than a Tea party candidate. Just look at O’Donnoll she recieved enough indy votes to win, but some how not enough Republican votes. Just enough Republicans voted for the Demoncrap to swing the election, and then Rove, who campaigned against her said she was a poor candidate. How many times have we seen this before. Specter vs Toomy, Nevada, North Dakota. over and over again and yet most refuse to wake up to the game. Palin was the worst example. This group of Elitist would rather see the left win than a conservative. Live the truth and it will set you free.

    What is a golden Globe? an enema?

  • jainphx

    Yes Rush gets me mad some times. he will go right up to the line and then back off. His refusal to endorse a candidate and then the flimsy excuse he uses makes me mad. all the time he say’s how much he loves this country and then refuses to really say what needs to be said and done, instead he pulls his punches. And Hannity: well I just can’t listen to him anymore for the same reasons.

    I have to agree with Rush. I’ve dealt with the party leaders and they are just a bunch of power-mongers who save the worst criticisms for other party members who dare disagree with them. If they used the same tactics and vitriol against the democrats as they use against party members who slightly disagree with them, then we would have a majority today.

    I remember party elite accusing other party members of being disloyal and then going on to ruin their business because they thought they were disloyal. Of course, when it comes to battling democrats, that same party member folded like a spineless idiot.

  • Conservative Ken

    Can’t argue with Rush on this one. Just watch Karl Rove open his mouth during an election season.

    Remember the Buckley rule.

  • Trevor (@tjexcite)

    One out of place word and the whole right (both neo-right and establishment right) toss the person out the door and you get a communist Senator for 6 years and a commie president for 4. Just because Romney did not defend himself on the 47% ect. the rest of the right gave up in it came out and did not “unite” against the really enemy to freedom and defend against the lies.

  • Fu#k Obama

    time to get rid of the GOP….

    they are no different than Imam Obama

  • Mad Hatter

    Since we have a free preview of HBO for three days, I got done watching Game Change, it’s right out of the Alinsky book of Rules for Radicals. They did to Palin in this movie, what they did to her during the 08′ Election.

    Thanks Tom Hanks for showing what a slime machine you are.

    Rush can take being hated…most can’t …and become manila folders. …but he STILL doesn’t get it….

    THERE WILL NEVER BE UNITY… 70% of the Republicans in DC are DEMOCRATS….they exist TO CANNIBALIZE opposition to FASCISM on behalf of their brothers in crime in the D party… …They pretend to have conservative values because that was the only pathway to hold a seat in R land…and the nearest D seat in Urban land was unavailable to them being seated by a powerful incumbent…. So they hawk the gospel speak like some Televangelist when they don’t intend to put a damn word of it into practice…..

    The party couldn’t even muster 15 votes to FIRE CAVE MAN Boner after 2 years LOSING every battle big and small…The R’s are PATHETIC…Nobody wants to be associated with such FRAUDS…impotent LOSERS….. who would see their own child being RAPED and just stand their WRINGING THEIR HANDS…Woe is me…Nothing I can do to stop it..,…..Better I join in smacking my child across the face and be BI PARTISAN about the whole thing.

    the forged BC. , the stolen SS number , the forged selective service application etc,etc…… well I have to say leaves me speechless.

    If you believe Obama’s SS number was stolen, and his BC and selective service application were forged, remaining speechless might be the smartest move you can make.
