It has long been my contention, that people like Limbaugh or O'Reilly, have served a purpose of reprogramming the American people, both as originally said, but also to alter our concepts of right and wrong, of discourse and disagreement, and our perceptions of self.
These vile windbags make the persuasive argument daily that to "discuss" things means you are weak: winners only destroy and never compromise. They laud character assassination and insults as appropriate forms of communication for adults, rather than only for children.
The destruction of language, with words constantly being invented from nothing, and redefined on a whim to confuse, muddle and enrage, was foreseen by Orwell, and the men who hold the leashes of - and write the scripts for - Limbaugh and O'Reilly learned those lessons well.
It's Class Warfare, Bitches, and we're on the wrong end.
