The Southern Avenger - Rove and Rush: Late To The Party

When Karl Rove dismissed Tea Party candidate Christine O'Donnell who defeated establishment candidate Mike Castle in Delaware's Republican senate primary, talk host Rush Limbaugh attacked Bush's former senior adviser. Limbaugh's attack marked another sort of Tea Party victory, indicative of the extent to which most of conservative talk radio now follows the movement--not the other way around.

the daily paul seems to be

the daily paul seems to be less and less in the libertarian category, and more and more in the religious nutbag category.

o`donnell? seriously?

I don't see that at all..

I don't see that at all.. Michael Nystrom is not promoting any religion on this site.

ok, let me be more

ok, let me be more precise:
the "tea party movement" seems to evolve into a religious movement (see glenn beck rally, o`donnell, ...), and its candidates are paraded around here.

You always NAIL it!

Hey S.A., I LOVED how you called Hannity & Limbaugh, "ho's" instead of "hosts."
FYI, it's Nevaaaaada, not Nevuuuuhda. We really cringe when we hear our state pronounced incorrectly.

Thank you for expressing the difference btwn Republicans. Many Democrats are oblivious as to what is happening. Even more Republicans are even more oblivious.

Does anyone UNDERSTAND...

...that DIVIDE and CONQUER is being played out within the WHOLE of the "RIGHT"? - lump it ALL together - conservative talk radio(personalities), Fox News Channel media personalities/shows/agendas for those shows, the Republican Party itself currently elected, the ESTABLISHMENT Republican Party(kingmakers), and the now officially hijacked Tea Party movement ...

Ron Paul is still on the OUTSIDE looking in; the ORIGIN, and grassroots expression of the ACTUAL Tea Party, is not PRESENT in the WHOLE of the "RIGHT" I mentioned.

The good thing is that the word "Tea Party" is a significant adjective to describe the POTENTIAL(not likelihood) the the Republican Party will move their ideology/policy positions a little right of center - for NOW - it is ALL rhetoric, the scope and size of government will NEVER be scaled back as long as there are career politicians in office; they are sociopaths.

In talking with ANYONE who is excited about the Tea Party movement; PLEASE ... make FREQUENT use of the term STATESMAN/STATESMEN ... that is what America must elect into office in 2012.

The divide and conquer game, being played out by the WHOLE of the "RIGHT" is meant to WEAR PEOPLE DOWN, confuse them, encourage them to persist in their DISTRUST of government, and eventually engage once again in VOTER APATHY(my vote doesn't matter) ... which again ... is a MARXIST plank to keep the status-quo they have ACCOMPLISHED over 2+ generations of dumbing us down to the point that politicians can get away with ANYTHING they damn well please ...

The ONLY way we're gonna, "We The People" are going to, take back our Republic is by an "uprising" of grassroots voters who ONLY cast votes for STATESMEN.

I think "We The People" are the MAJORITY, democratically speaking - but it is going to take a REAL 70+ percent voter turnout of us, going up against the SHEEPLE(Republicans AND Democrats stuck in the left/right paradigm) who are buying what the WHOLE of the "RIGHT" is selling!

Again, divide and conquer is going on amongst any and ALL conservative pundits & media personalities ... it is a GRAND written SCRIPT meant to CONFUSE ... it results in Cap & Trade Republicans, Bailout Republicans, Pro-war Republicans, Mike Huckabee "don't REPEAL the Heath Care Bill" Republicans DEFEATING our Liberty candidates ... which is TRAGICALLY ... no CHANGE in our Republic, not even one OUNCE of more conservative policies being enacted ... let alone no implementation or repeal of ANYTHING that resembles a restriction to, obedience to, an adherence to CONSTITUTIONALLY limited government; which is what the TEA PARTY was initially all about!

KEEP your EYES on the PRIZE ... "throw off" this political rhetoric THEATER and keep your MIND sharp and focused! (They're trying to KEEP the electorate's mind as pliable Silly Putty)

Chalk this one in the win column. These primaries are delivering huge blows to the Republican establishment - the same establishment that several months ago were drooling over primary seats.

I'll take these little victories.

Karl Freekin' Rove... nice!

I sent this the the Wall Street Journal yesterday...

I know it is not your intention to please everybody all the time. However, there is a revolution a foot. Voters are rebelling against the Washington establishment. This does not sit well with the WSJ’s editorial board and the likes of Karl Rove.

Prior to the Delaware primary, Karl Rove wage a war against Christine O’Donnell, supported by a WSJ editorial. Karl Rove, the GOP establishment and the WSJ care about power, rather than the people. The GOP establishment has power and money. It has served them well in the past, but no longer. We have discovered that the power of democracy resides with the people. If we organize, with sheer numbers we can overcome the establishment. Christine O’Donnell proved that on Tuesday.

Instead of eating his humble pie in private, Karl Rove decided to continue his public humiliation of Christine O’Donnell. It so incensed me that I have decided to take it out on the Wall Street Journal. I know you will say that I am being unfair. However, indirectly, I pay for Karl Rove’s insipid commentary in the Journal every week. No longer. When my subscription (online and hard copy) runs out, I will not renew, unless you ditch his commentary, which I know won’t happen. I bid you adieu. That’s the least I can do for Christine O’Donnell to support her against the venom of Karl Rove. In addition, I shall generously contribute to her campaign, even though with no help from Karl Rove or editorials from the WSJ, she faces an almost insurmountable task.

This is the face of pure evil.

This is what evil looks like.

It is what someone looks like who knew a lot more about 9/11 than he'll ever admit.

Karl Rove is what is what's wrong with the Neo-Con wing of the republican party.

It is those like him who have caused this revolutionary movement against establishment republicans.

Libertarian-conservatives are tired of their militarism and dirty rotted tactics designed to drive us into foreign invasions and empire building...IN OUR NAMES.

This man is a traitor to Americanism and he should be treated as such.

Shame on you Rove - you are as instumental in ruining our republic as the socialist liberal democrats who steal our property every payday.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

    The philosophical paradigm shift that RP talks about. . .

    IS slowly but surely taking place. We have CFR president, Richard Haass, writing about "Rethinking Afghanistan" (July 18, 2010 Newsweek) and Andrew Bacevich, a CFR member who voted for Obama, arguing for including "radical" (i.e. RonPaulian) views to our national security debate (Washington Rules).

    Very timely for Jack H to point out the significance of Rush L's shift away from Karl R, the empire's former king-maker.

    Right on the money, Jack...
