He doesn't want to go off the air. He bought-in on the whole civic nationalist bit that even Trump was larping. Most normie conservatives share this view. He is professionally terrified of being labeled 'racist.' He knows the left will use that as a wedge to scare affiliates into dropping him. With web-based media, they can just pull the plug directly, as we're seeing all over now. Radio (and terrestrial TV) remain very important, despite what we've been told for the past 20 years.Which brings me back to: why can't Rush Limbaugh understand this? Or is it one of those cases where Rush totally does understand this low-key but he just doesn't get paid to help his own audience members to truly understand this?
I don't know. Like I said above, I've rarely listened to the guy over my life. You guys tell me.
I guess I'm coming off as a Rush apologist the last few months. I quit listening to the guy during Bush, Jr. because I couldn't stand the bullshit. I felt about him the same way I feel about Hannity now: He was a punch-puller who justified jewish wars and was bought-in on the whole American Magic Soil that transmutes non-White immigrants into 'Mericans. Bush, Jr. was obviously a deep state goy. Rush became unlistenable.
I didn't really listen again until late in the Obama administration, and especially the past few years. He has come a very long way.
