  •  it really does. everything the 'left' - progs, lib (0+ / 0-)

    erals, dems - want is made harder merely because they ignore it. there is NO organized opposition to it outside the specifically targeted boycott.

    in almost every community in the US a few blowhards routinely undo/minimize the volunteer activism (hours, donations) of hundreds and thousands of activists.

    if you are active about a major issue know that as soon as you start making progress, lets say toward local legislation, the 1%'s think tanks notice and can use the local RW blowhard to yell over it and activate/enable well-timed opposition motivated by bullshit. the same happens nationally. using distortions, lies, distractions, swiftboating (benghazi, IRS, ACORN, etc) successfully merely because they can- because the 'left' (or any american who believes in democracy) ignores it.

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.
