"Eff the Blue cities. They're not real America anyway"

Sorry, did I offend you?

I'm just posting what has been said on over 1,000 radio stations every hour of everyday for the last 40 years

This is who these Retrumplicans are. It's no surprise.

How many of you have ignored Hate Radio, or said; "oh, first amendment and all that... besides, they're only preaching to the choir".

Well, we now have our very own Hate Radio president.

He, and his cult, don't give one EFF about New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, etc.

In fact, they don't give one EFF about cities in red states. Charleston WV, Cleveland OH, Atlanta GA, Milwaukee WI, St Louis, MO??? They don't give a fuck.

The only thing they care about when it comes to cities is to make sure they have a monopoly on those cities radio stations and the economic power of those cities for the advertising of their Hate Radio stations.

See, we're not real America. Real America is some godforsaken shithole, where when you order Chicken Cacciatore, they bring you chicken thighs boiled in ketchup.

It's amazing how a few million people out of work in big, beautiful blue cities sends the entire economy off a cliff.

Truth be told, the orange amphibian turd in the White House would like nothing more than have a Civil War.

In his feeble syphilitic mind, he's bigger than Lincoln.

Only his war won't be to save the Union and free a people. It will be to divide and conquer.

Our inattentiveness has paved the road for where we are now.

They've told us who they are for 40 years.

What's most maddening is that we've helped them. They couldn't support 1,000 Radio stations across this country without the audience, economic power and prestige that comes from our great cities.

If Limbaugh was NOT on the radio in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Oakland, he wouldn't be on the radio in California.

If he were NOT on the radio in Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Toledo, he wouldn't be on the radio in Ohio.

If he were NOT on the radio in New York City, Albany, Buffalo and Newark NJ, he wouldn't be on the radio in New York or New Jersey.

If he were NOT on the radio in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, he wouldn't be on the radio in Pennsylvania.

Hell, if he were NOT on the radio in Charleston and Morgantown...he wouldn't even be on the radio in West Virginia.

How many will have to die? How many amoral assholes will need to be elected before we do something?

1. There's no such thing as a blue city.

New York has millions of Republicans as well as Democrats. Same with every other city and state. Trump just wants to exercise power and see people suffer for defying him. He is a pathetic fuck.

5. Detroit, Chicago, NY are all considered lib cities by the christofascists.

Those cities are their favorite whipping boys for their racism and owning the libs.

Doesn't matter how many conservatives live there, there are too many brown folks who live there.

The Springs, Fort Collins, Greeley and on the Western Slope Grand Junction tend to go red.

Metropolitan areas (ie, cities and their surrounding suburbs) are the blue areas of the country, also the most diverse.

17. Maybe my point wasn't well stated.

Trump will be killing scores of Republicans as well as Democrats. No matter what city or state. And those who die have relatives in other red and blue cities and states. It's just not a very smart 'pwn the libs' strategy when everyone suffers, including your own base.

29. Liberals use facts and analyze nuances before coming to conclusions

We know there are right winger in cities.

We know there are many liberals in rural areas

It is our nature to analyze facts, find exceptions, and try to arrived at a balanced conclusion.

Right wing demagogues do not do this. They rely on feeling ("truthiness" instead of facts, view the world as either/or, find scapegoats to blame for problems, and focus their anger on these scapegoats. They vent rage at a convenient target.

Unfortunately, right wing demagogues dominate the AM airwaves and influence many people.

4. Harsh word

I wish you wouldn't call "red America", or rural America, a shithole.

I didn't like it when Trump called Africa a shithole.

There are good people in small towns. We just have a big divide.

I still remember meeting a Christian woman without a bone of hate in her body who taught me a lot about what Christianity could be. She made a believer out of me - I believe that some Christians, Southern Christians, Bible Belt Christians, are good people.

I will not call where they live a shithole.

My house is rather untidy right now, so I can't talk.

6. Hate radio is ...hateful by design. Limbaugh and RW radio in general are damaging the country.

It's true and I agree something needs to be done about it, but I don't care to adopt Limbaugh's messaging to do it. The answer lies not in dividing the country and seeing ourselves as separate, diametrically opposed 'others' as Limbaugh and the Republican Southern Strategy do. The truth is that we all have a lot more in common than we realize and at some point, we need to figure out how to bring us all together. Hate and anger aren't going to do it.



Skip to 3:20 for the bit that sortof applies. I don't why your post made me think of it, but there it is.

10. The answer doesn't lie in dividing the country

Pointing out that the economic and foot-power majority Democratic cities have should be used to boycott the ever loving fuck out of Hate Radio is NOT being "the same" as their divisive crap.

It's not stooping to their level. It's using the tools and power available to destroy their hateful, racist crap.

13. Then my apologies - I misunderstood you.

I am all for boycotting them. Boycotting them won't be enough, though.

Fox News has recently made a huge mistake in continuing to spew hate and misinformation to the point of likely killing people. The Fairness Doctrine would never have allowed for that kind of behavior, but trying to get any movement on reinstating it has faced an insurmountable battle. Until now. If any moment were the right one to push for it, and push HARD, now is the time. Fox has left the door wide open.

19. The country is divided because RW chose to divide.

As you stated, the blue metro areas are the engines of production in this world - yet we're severely underrepresented in this system, ie the Electoral College, the Senate, etc.

Rural whites control the game, why this country is so backward, as blue votes matter far less than red votes due to the way the system is structured.

Blue America has the population, the energy, the purchasing power - we can easily boycott Red America and put the hurt on them until they stop their bullshit. We could easily get our food/goods from Mexico and Canada or from blue states/areas. Fuck'em. They wanted to play hardball well it's time to play hardball.

12. I blame Limbaugh first, and then the others followed.

Itís a small wonder that Trump gave him the medal of freedom. He started the lies. He started the whole country on the whole thing that everything a Democrat does is evil. He brainwashed those people at work, driving trucks and cars listening to his bull crap.

Rush started it on a national level. So a guy like Trump walked into the Republican world where chaos and disinformation are king. Of course this president, who has always lied, stole, cheated, and loved chaos would choose him.

21. Rural America is not safe

They are making a very dangerous mistake to assume they will be spared. They're the ones who visit each other, go to schools and churches, Trump rallies, sporting events at the local level, summer picnics and barbecues, and so much more. Rural American love to get together.

City people may be crowded together on trains and buses but won't be actively shaking hands and hugging each other like people do at social events. There's a reason why the churches and schools got it first here in DC and many other cities. A choir group in rural Washington state got it hard when none of them showed any symptoms. Florida and Louisiana got it in rural areas.

24. Don't forget the universities that also broadcast the message of hate & bigotry.

The biggest mistake the Democratic Party, and the left in general, made was ignoring hate radio. And we still do.

You are right that most republicans believe that only they are true Americans. The rest of us are allowed here as long as we know and keep our place, but once we started demanding equality and equity in the system. then all the pretenses were off. Anyone who objects to or stands up to the Christian white patriarchy is not a true American in their eyes.

I wish one of our billionaires would buy up a few radio stations, pay for some top notch writing talent, & challenge the message of hate & divisiveness that blankets rural America, although we're so far behind the eight-ball in messaging it may be too late.

In fact, they don't consider liberals, immigrants, green card holders, gays, Muslims etc. etc to be "real Americans." The fact is, they hate the real America.
