Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “Hello, suckers!” edition

Good morning, everyone!

The Endless Freepathon is over, and with almost a month to go before the next one! (pay up, Kibitzer)

Gullibility is high on the list of Freeperati characteristics, so let’s kick off with –Are we not suckers? We are FREEPO!

Are Hannity, Rush, and the big talkers playing us for $$$? (vanity)

Do you ever get the feeling that Rush and Hannity don’t really care who wins, just as long as their dollars keep rolling in from us tea party saps.


Besides Mark Levin, what prominent talker has gone out on a limb and endorsed true conservative candidates? Everyday we have to here Hannity interview the John McCains of the world. If he truly believed in the conservative movement, wouldn’t he be out there trumpeting Richard Mourdock and Don Stenberg like Levin is?

As for Rush, he is more interested in commercializing the tea party movement with his “Two if by tea” than promoting it.

Besides Mark Levin, they’re all sellouts just like the Republican leadership…looking out for their own career over the well being of the country.

Eric Cantor with his support of Richard Lugar and Adam Kinzinger in their primaries is consolidating moderate, establishment support behind his ambition to be speaker some day. But Hannity is more interested in a softball interview with him than evicerating him for his actions.

There are very few leaders in our movement.

That would be because you’re Authoritatrians for the most part (with some fake libertarians thrown in for flavour). The Dems have always been the Party of grassroots, and the Repubs have always been the Party of STFU and do/think what we tell you to.
Also, self-analysis doesn’t seem to be high on your list of priorities – just sayin’…

In a word …YES !

We stopped listening to Rush long ago, as he bumped bellies with those who rolled out the red carpet for tens of millions of illegals, during war time, as he babbled about feminist and golf.

It became unbearable.

Drive BOR off the air first.

Of course the sheep jump in, loudly braying that being sheared isn’t really that baaaaaad.

To: teg_76

What’s your beef with Rush? He doesn’t do interviews,


so that part of your argument is out and he came as close to a Primary endorsement he has ever had with Santorum. I don’t feel played at all.

Take the hook out of your mouth.

Ya… we just hate it when people make a name for themselves and make money by promoting their ideas.

Greedy Capitalists promoting ideas just because it sells.

someone should stop them

Uh, yes. Notice how quick they fold up and alter their views once their paychecks are in jeopardy.

One way to look at it is we are using them to get our ideas out. If they get too far from home, they go the way of BOR and leave the radio.

Fox has their own rules, as we saw with Glenn Beck. Now he can be as crazy as he wants to be, but while at Fox, he was “handled”.
And now he’s handling himself.

In a marketplace of ideas, the bad ideas go away eventually. CNN. MSNBC, and others are examples of that. There is absolutely nothing to stop you from blogging, becoming a writer, or becoming a talk show host.To keep an audience, you would have to keep some opinions close to your vest.

Death penalty for being brown, ferinstance.

Savage and Stein prove that. Levin is the only one that can call someone a liar, or communist and get back on the air the next day. I think hat’s because he’s a lawyer and leaves a way out. Look at what’s happened to Anne (sic) Coulter. I bet her next book isn’t quite the best seller she is used to.

Rush and Levin are the only ones I listen to. Occasionally Beck…tho I’m growing tired of the ‘spectacular revelations’ he has


(i.e. the Buffett connection to the pipeline deal. FReepers knew about that MONTHS ago!!!)

Hannity drives me nuts and I turn his show OFF as of late. He’s a toadie for the RNC…panders to the establishment with this “can’t we all just get along” attitude.

Particularly pissed about his lecturing to us about Breitbart’s death and that HE knew about Andrew’s heart condition and that we should lay off about the autopsy.


Most annoying with him is his pandering for the ‘black vote’ with the guests and callers he has on. It’s like…”well I know you’re going to vote for Obama…but can I sway you and your kids by sending you a beautiful arrangement of flowers from Pre-Flora and toys for the kids?” It’s disgusting. I’m sorry, No different from what the Democraps promise them. And that’s my damned opinion. So, there.

Freepers then speculate about their hero jumping into a lifeboat and leaving them to go down with the ship…

To: teg_76

Yes, but Rush to his credit is pretty open about it. I don’t think he is joking one whit about bolting if the bottom drops out, and why not? Who would not if the option were there? He has also paid his dues and busted the crap out of many a leftist when he is not, in his own words “carrying water” for the Geriatric Old Plantation.

Hannity . . . Don’t like him for a number of reasons so I will withold comment. I don’t think I can be objective about him.

Would you explain a little bit more about Rush bolting? It’s been a good 2-3 weeks or more since I listened to his show. Is he talking about leaving the U.S.? I’d love to know when he discussed this.

He said he’d go to Costa Rica of all places. That was back in 2010 before the passage of ObamaCare.

So – let me get this straight – Viagra-boy is wanting to move to Costa Rica, which has national health care?
To get away from “Obamacare”??
With YOUR money??
More collateral damage after the drone attack…
