Attack of the Rushbots? By Jeff Jackson
Not a day goes by that I don’t get an email from someone on the loony left devoid of rational thought that accuses me of parroting Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity and going on and on about how I do not have an original thought in my head. I suppose that when you are on the wrong side of most world events and American policy more often than not and send emails that contain little if any substance it probably seems like a good strategy to attack the messenger.
The problem that many who disagree with my positions and the positions of many conservatives have is that they fail to realize one thing; the opinions are pretty much self evident. Being self evident, it is pretty natural that different people have the same take on many issues that surround our lives. At least for rational people that is.
I don’t need Limbaugh to tell me what to think. I barely even listen to the man because I think that he has gone stale and I might catch a few minutes of his show in-between work that places me nowhere near a radio between noon and 3. I don’t need any other conservative to tell me what to think either.
What is funny however is that these same lame brains that try to pin myself and other conservatives down as mindless drones are the same ones that parrot any talking point they hear on some left wing message board or Air America (if they are one of the 6 people that listen to it). What is funny is how it is those on the left that send me emails filled with profanity and containing baseless charges that they are too lazy to fact check.
These are the same people that like to say things like “Thomas Jefferson was an atheist!” despite writing in a letter lo John Adams (April 11, 1823) “I can never join Calvin in addressing his god. He was indeed an Atheist, which I can never be; or rather his religion was Daemonism. If ever man worshipped a false god, he did”. These are the same people that send me emails claiming President said the threat in Iraq in “imminent” when the actual quote is “Some have said we must not act until the threat is imminent”. They are the same kool aid drinkers that tell me, with a straight face mind you, that it is a “fact” that U.S. troops targeted reporters because some network executive made the claim and then rather than backing it up resigned his post.
And these are the people that call me a “Rushbot?” Come on. Get real!
The fact of the mater is, as previously stated, that the opinions and observations I make are self evident. And just because someone else makes the same observation doesn’t mean that I cannot think for myself. If that were true, then I wouldn’t even need to point out the idiocy of those on the left that levy the above charges. All I would have to tell them is “Hey, can’t you think for yourself? Because so-and-so already called me that name or accused me of that!”
We don’t get talking point memos here. And I wouldn’t follow them even if I did. I would merely comment on what I believe to be right. And I will continue to do so and show who the real mind-numbed robots are.
Leave a comment if you like! *Note if you are a left wing, tin hat wearing, pro-Marxist loon that likes to post "anonymously" you will be treated like the kook you are!
