Rush was reporting on the Breitbart post that Warner Todd Huston put up linking to my GraniteGrok post about Democrat Cynthia Chase. So I give all the credit for Warner. Thanks for sharing. I got a serious kick out of being mentioned on the most listened to radio show in America.
But I have to wonder, as people give me digital high-fives and attaboys, just how much street-cred does this give to Ms. Chase? My earnest hope is that the weight of her remarks humbles her into reevaluating her worldview, but seeing as she is a New Hampshire Democrat the NHDP will probably give her an award and throw her a party for having Limbaugh call her out.
Such is the nature of the divide. Accused of Legislative Tyranny –Way to go Progressive Girlfriend!
Meanwhile, it is only January 4th. I’ve been linked to on Breitbart and Rush Limbaugh has quoted me on the air. Not a bad start to 2013. (And I was just awarded AFP’s blogger of the month for December 2012). I can’t say I expect the rest of the year to be more interesting but I’ll keep writing and sharing as I always do and whatever happens, happens.
(Transcript on the jump -MP3 available later today.)
Rush Limbaugh -
RUSH: “A New Hampshire legislator wants her constituents to know that she feels conservatives are the ‘single biggest threat’ her state faces today, and she wants to use her powers to legislate to ‘pass measures that will restrict’ the freedoms of Granite State conservatives. In a blog post made last month on the left-wing site Blue Hampshire, 3rd District State Representative Democrat Cynthia Chase,” and there’s a picture of her here, and that’s all I’m going to say.
There’s a picture here of Cynthia Chase, and she “advised her fellow legislators to use their positions to make New Hampshire less welcoming to any conservative or libertarian planning on moving to her state — not to mention those already in residence. For those unaware, a conservative project of sorts has been underway in New Hampshire since 2001. The idea is that Americans of conservative ideals are to move to New Hampshire, gather in communities, run for office, and work to drive the state toward libertarianism and conservatism.”
There’s a movement that has been orchestrated throughout the country to convince conservatives to move to New Hampshire and to make inroads politically and to try to wrest control of the state, in a democratic fashion. That’s why this state legislator, Cynthia Chase, is all upset. I’ve told you in the past that liberals consider us the biggest threat that they face — a bigger threat than Al-Qaeda, a bigger threat than any terrorist group, a bigger threat than any other nation. We conservatives are the biggest threat they face, and Ms. Chase here is making this abundantly clear.
She wants to purposely use her powers to write laws to target individuals with whom she disagrees, take away their freedoms and liberties, all in the hope that the citizens that she is oppressing might ultimately leave. That’s what her objective is. Cynthia Chase wants conservatives to leave New Hampshire, and she wants to effect this by writing legislation that targets their liberty and targets their freedom. Steve MacDonald, a New Hampshire resident said, “[T]his sounds like tyranny.”
Now, imagine, if you will, if a state legislator had written a blog post targeting the freedoms of gays or targeting the freedoms of women or some other minority. What if? What if some legislator wrote a blog post and said, “We are never going to allow Justin Bieber into our state”? Can you imagine the hell to pay? But people are now actually considering this since the target is conservatives.
RUSH: Cynthia Chase, the legislator in New Hampshire who wants to target conservatives and limit their freedom so they’ll leave? I said there’s a picture of her. She looks like a Teamster. That’s the best way to describe it. We’ll link to it.
