So, why is it that Limbaugh, Beck, Levin, et al hate America/Americans?
The usual right wing assumption is that they are the patriots. They are the defenders of the republic. They are the glue that holds America together.
If that's the case, I have some inconsistencies to point out.
1. Why is it that these right wing talk jocks "support the military" yet none of them has served a single day; indeed some went to lengths to avoid service.
2. How is daily spouting aimed at angering their audience with divisive half-truths and mischaracterizations at helpful to America? Portraying fellow Americans as enemies is hardly patriotic in any sense. It's demagoguery, pure and simple.
3. Fostering a "no compromise" mindset is the opposite of political activity. It results in deadlock. Politics is the art of compromise.
4. While falling over each other to denounce unions, these guys are union members themselves.
All four, Beck, O’Reilly, Limbaugh and Hannity, are members of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA), a union that is affiliated with the AFL-CIO.
So these blowhards have been frothing about unions and workers rights while enjoying all of the benefits of union membership themselves. It is amazing that anyone would be so willing to listen to these hypocrites.
