and receives Dittohead Hate Mail in Reply
Published Monday, November 17, 2003 Rush Limbaugh, Independence
Nita J. Wyrick ["Rush Limbaugh, What's Right," letter, Nov. 6] proved Ralph Borgsmiller's point ["Rush Limbaugh, ESPN," letter, Oct. 29] magnificently with her narrow-minded response to his excellent letter that pointed out how Rush Limbaugh's loyal listeners don't think for themselves. Just the fact that they proudly refer to themselves as "dittoheads" should be a good indicator of their mind-set.KATE BERNARD - Davenport
Also, for Ms. Wyrick to refer to liberalism as a "mental defect" truly shows how misled people of her ilk are.
If you call implementing a living wage, affordable health care, ending corporate welfare, fully funded public education, and racial and gender equality "mentally defective," then I guess there are a lot more mentally defective people in this country than was previously thought. You can include the founding fathers in that group, too, seeing as how the Declaration of Independence states that "all men are created equal."
As a matter of fact, the Polk County supervisor of elections Web site says that there are thousands more voters registered as Democrats than as Republicans -- so does that mean that mental defectives are the majority in Polk County?
What else can we expect from a dittohead, though -- they've already demonstrated they cannot think for themselves and only repeat what their great leader Rush tells them to. Perhaps they should spend more time studying the facts and what "liberals" truly stand for rather than being told what to think by someone who's nothing more than an entertainer who is earning a pretty penny spouting half-truths and ugliness.
An Anonymous writer sent this to Kate in reply - hand written on a legal pad. Kate mailed the letter to me.
Here is the first half of the letter recreated as close to the original in caps., spelling, and punctuation as possible:
I'm GETTING TIRED oF ANSWERINGI think I get the drift. Democrats = Liberals, Liberals = Socialists, Socialists = Communists therefore all Democrats are Communists.
ALL YOU STUPID LIBERALS LETTERS.
TO YOU LADY, I GIVE A RESPONSE OF; HOW DUMB CAN YOU GET? REAL DUMB. DUMB TO BE A BRAINDEAD DEMOCRAT, WHOOPS NOT DEMOCRAT, SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT COMMY IDIOT
IF I WANTED TO LIVE UNDER SOCIALISM, I COULD MOVE TO ANY OTHER COUNTRY, AND I WILL FIGHT TO STOP YOU SOCIALISTS FROM RUINING THE USA
YOUR RIGHT, LIBERALISM IS NOT A MENTAL DEFECT IT IS A TOTAL BRAINDEAD DEFECT.
NOW, I'M 20 YEARS OLDER THAN RUSH AND MY POLITICAL FEELINGS AND BELEIFS ARE MINE, NOT RUSH'S.
HE JUST PORTRAYS MINE AND 35 MIL OTHER SMART AMERICANS.
WHEN A PERSON REGISTERS TO VOTE, THEY PICK A PARTY. MANY HAVE BEEN WHATEVER FOR YEARS.
DOE'S NOT MEAN THEY VOTE THAT WAY. REP. CONTROL POLK CO. I'VE VOTED DEMOCRAT BEFORE ALSO.
DEMOCRATS ARE NOT THE SAME TODAY. THE PARTY STANDS FOR SOCIALISM TODAY. SOCIALISM IS ANOTHER WORD FOR COMMUNISM.
LIBERALS ARE SOCIALISTS........
I guess Rush can be gratified that his message is getting through to someone.
