Bradley Manning Verdict Just Another Sign of the Shift in Our Culture
Somehow it just doesn’t make sense that all these military secrets being released doesn’t aide the enemy. Manning has the blood of US troops on his hands.
Check it out:
It’s unbelievable to see the headline: “Manning Not Guilty of Aiding the Enemy.” He did aid the enemy. Bradley Manning aided the enemy. He’s been found not guilty of it. He was acquitted of the most serious charge. That’s the bottom line to this.
Anyway, greetings, my friends, and welcome back. Rush Limbaugh on the cutting edge of societal evolution.
So I’m now being inundated with e-mails. “Rush Limbaugh, I can’t believe how naive you are thinking this change just took place in the last four years.” Folks, that’s not what I was saying, and I may not have expressed it properly. I know there’s been a 65-, 70-year assault on this country by the American left, even predating Woodrow Wilson. In fact, there’s been an assault on this country ever since it was founded, opponents to the Constitution and all this. I mean, I’m not naive about that. I was trying to express how rapidly it seems we’ve reached the point of no return.
Look, some things are very obvious. I say Bush got elected twice, but one time he actually didn’t. Popular vote, he lost. In 2000 Bush lost the popular vote, won the Electoral College vote. In 2004, he won that one. That was also a close election. There were no landslides with Bush. The eight years between Bush being elected in 2000 and Obama being elected in 2008, in those eight years you had bunch of young people who had been steeped, raised, exposed to leftist culture and pop culture coming of age, able to vote. Same time, same eight years, a lot of older Reagan voters passed away, and, in 2008, some of them just said “to hell with it” and stayed home, didn’t vote.
That was a dramatic demographic change. And you add to it 2008, 2012, but especially 2008, the Republicans presented hardly any opposition to Obama. Even at that, McCain was leading Obama prior to the trumped-up financial crisis. But I’m fully aware it’s been a 50-year assault, that students in the public school system and American universities have been marinated in liberalism and so forth. I guess the most accurate way for me to express what I’m talking about is how quickly we’ve reached the point of no return. It does seem we have because there appears to be total capitulation by the Republicans to what the Democrats want, total acquiescence.
Those people are in the business of getting elected and we’d have to assume that they are doing what they think or what they have been told they have to do to get elected. And most politicians are gonna be populist and try to reflect in campaigns what they think people want to hear. Most politicians are. Advertising is a similar window to where culture is, as is pop culture, is a great window that allows people to see where the country at large is. So, as I say, I’m not thinking every bit of change has taken place here in four years. It’s just the tipping point has been reached. But I’m still not confident that that’s true either. I haven’t thrown in the towel. I’m not sitting here thinking it can’t be stopped and turned back. I could be an idiot on that, but I haven’t.
