To the editor:
In the March 11 Public Forum, Fred Whitehead Jr. states “Rush Limbaugh is not a conservative.” Rush is the conservative’s conservative.
Whitehead states, “He is a self-serving employee of his self-aggrandized EIB network. Conservative translation: Rush is a successful, productive businessman, who believes in capitalism and the United States Constitution. (Typical case of class envy). It is just “not fair for someone to be so successful.” Boo hoo.
There is a cure for class envy. Get rid of your victim mentality and join the productive members of society. Rise to the challenge. Become an achiever and vanquish your belief that you are a poor victim of circumstance. Keep in mind, it takes effort to not be a victim. I would welcome you to the productive members of our democracy.
Fred makes a reference to the size of Rush Limbaugh’s audience as small or “imaginary.” Fact: Rush is the most successful talk radio host in the history of broadcasting. Twenty-two million “imaginary” listeners tune in every day. The January/February data shows a significant increase in listeners over the same time last year. You need to have facts when you attempt to trash someone. After all Rush is just a harmless little fuzz ball. Ha!
I would love to see you debate the issues with the likes of Rush. I am guessing it would take about one-eighth of his brain to shut you down. Remember, next time you attack someone, have some facts not just class envy and anger.
