Rush Limbaugh declared yesterday that any attempt to win over media liberals with reason was doomed to failure. He says they’re immune to logic and only have their own mission in mind, and that is to spread the gospel of progressivism and discredit anyone who opposes it. He says-
….it’s a mistake to go on Drive-By Media as a conservative to try to get them to understand. They don’t want to understand. They don’t think they’re wrong. There’s nothing a Republican presidential candidate could say to George Stephanopoulos or Charlie Rose or any of them to make them change their mind. Nothing. It isn’t gonna happen.
That’s not why they invite them there. They don’t invite Republicans on these shows ’cause they really care what they think. They invite them on these shows to expose them.
Rush then gives an example of how progressive media presenter Mark Halperin does his best to discredit Ted Cruz in an “interview” on his radio show.
HALPERIN: People are really interested in you and your identity, so I just want to ask you, as a historical matter, when you filled out your application to Princeton, to Harvard Law School, did you list yourself as an Hispanic?
CRUZ. Oh, sure. I’ve listed myself as Cuban-American. That’s my heritage and my background.
HALPERIN: Talk a little bit more about your Cuban heritage and ask you in the following categories whether you have an affinity for or a connection to anything part of your Cuban past. You got a favorite Cuban food, Cuban dish?
CRUZ: Oh, I grew up eating Cuban food all the time —
HALPERIN: What’s your favorite dish?
CRUZ: — at my grandparents. You know, picadillo I grew up eating all the time. We had plantains. We had beans and rice. For Christmas, we would roast a whole pig a lot of years for Christmas Eve. And so my grandparents, my abuelo and abuela, they didn’t speak English.
HALPERIN: Do you have a favorite Cuban singer?
CRUZ: You know, I have to admit in that I’m much more of a Texan. I tend to listen to country music more than Cuban music.
HALPERIN: Finally, you know, we wanted to give you the opportunity to directly welcome your colleague, Senator Sanders, to the race, and I’d like you to do it, if you would, en Espanol.
CRUZ: I’m gonna stick to English, but I appreciate the invitation, Senor.
So, Rush claims, and he is right, that the whole discussion is an attempt by Halperin to discredit Cruz’s Cuban heritage as an affectation, faked to attract Cuban-American votes. Halperin doesn’t want to hear what Cruz has to say, he just wants to knock him down.
RUSH: So you can’t even speak Spanish, eh? You call yourself an Hispanic? The whole point of this was to expose Ted Cruz as a fraud, that he’s not a Hispanic. The whole point of this interview was to say to liberals and Hispanics: don’t buy this Cruz guy as one of you. He can’t even speak their language. What is this, he doesn’t even have a favorite Cuban singer. He can’t even answer these questions about basic life in Cuba.
That’s what this is all about. They didn’t care what Ted Cruz really thinks about issues. They don’t give a rat’s rear end about Ted Cruz and his policy. The whole reason Ted Cruz was invited there was to expose him or present him as an unqualified fraud and faker. So the idea that the libs are gonna get their minds right on gun control or conservatism, ain’t gonna happen, folks.
We don’t have a democracy, we have stinking media/ political elite controlled fake democracy.
Support Ted Cruz.
He’s the one these stinking left wing totalitarians hate the most.
