This warning points out the genesis of today's gopper mess. Yes, the Reagan era turned gop into a refuge of white arrogance welcoming southern dems pissed at civil rights, but LIMBAUGH was the gopper goebbels. He slung lies and conspiracy theories daily in between disparaging feminism, the poor, civil rights, and responsible governing until all his devoted listeners wanted was revenge. No one had done that before with that large a platform. All the conservative media that followed had to engage in the same hate and dishonesty if they were to compete for the same audience. Now their frontrunner claims to his crowds "I am your retribution."
