i listen to a lot of conservative radio. beck, rush, hannity are the three i listen to most, but from time to time i drop in on "the great one" levin.

beck is ok, but he goes a little conspiratorial sometimes, and always seems to be on the verge of broke and needing you to support him. of the three, i would say hes a little bland.

rush is the king! no one does it like rush. polished, smooth, needs no sideline help (beck has pat and stu, hannity has his producer from the bronx whos name escapes me just now).

hannity is well informed, but repetitious. you could skip a day or two of hannity and still know what hes going to say.

these guys are just bad for you.

here's why. they always post up the liberals as the ultimate boogie man. the libs want to destroy you, they hate you, they hate america, they hate god, they hate children, they hate...basically everything that you as a conservative could possibly identify with.

if all you listen to is conservative radio and have no liberal friends, then this ever present drum beat is going to taint your whole world view. this is how its bad for you. when you meet a person that doesnt conform to the "conservative" pov, then they must be liberal and they must hate you so you must hate them back. however, thats just not the case. what if they are just a moderate, or what if they simply identify an issue as being an issue but have no idea how to solve it. you would probably find you have a lot in common and worry about the same stuff, just have different ideas about how to solve those problems.

i like these guys when they stay on point and discuss the matters at hand, but when they turn to the "all libs want to kill you and take your freedoms" bit i get a little disgusted, because i know all this is doing is driving the wedge between the two ideologies even deeper.

if you want to rebut with "but the libs say...", you win, cause i dont listen to them. i have no frame of reference so i cant possibly respond to that. all i can talk about is what i hear on conservative radio, mainly beck, rush, and hannity.

the sad thing is apparently the liberal DEMOCRATS(not all liberals) want to do what they preach against.

What would happen if liberals did get their way? Remove the president, take away your guns, take away your money, kill your babies, sex change your kids, open your boarders, keep the swamp and who knows what else under the guise of 'the common good'?

Doug Hagmann, Dave Hodges and Greg Hunter are a few others with a conservative background that I listen too. Might not agree with everything they say, but get stories that other places do not touch.

I try to listen to music on the radio, ATS is similar to what you describe these days though. I might say it's a brave OP around these parts, but fair play for voicing your opinion. In the UK it's the right leaning papers such as the daily mail which usually lead with the fear headlines. Bad news sells.

There is no more perfect view than my point of view.
And they all reflect my point of view perfectly. That's why I only
listen to them. So I don't forget what I think.

You say the right leaning news sources in the UK lead with the fear mongering.
Are you aware that a BBC news report recently announced that we only have 18 months to save the planet? The BBC is a left leaning news source.
The right wing may use fear as a persuader, but the left has gone beyond using fear. They use hysteria and doomsday alarmism.
It's their stock-in-trade. Their business.

It's just part of the division that has widened.
The exact same could be said for the liberal media. If THAT is all you listen to then the same applies.
The answer is not t listen to both, but to listen to neither sources. Reject any one sided outlet and find sources that only focus on actual news.

It appears the BBC reported what some IPCC scientists said, its an article with links to studies so one can make up there own mind

Climate change: 12 years to save the planet? Make that 18 months


where as the Daily Mail writes their own headlines and storys , trying to find the links to any of these storys is merely a waste of time, its just spurious nonsense

A trip down memory lane… of the Daily Mail’s disaster headlines under Paul Dacre

We already have ways of reducing CO2 in the atmosphere, so there is no need to radically change society.
The whole societal change schtick is designed for control and profit.

That said, not sure what your post has to do with the topic.

What would happen if liberals did get their way?


The rest of the country would look like Calfornia with blackouts, and CRAP and needles in the streets with a dose of homeless people being pushed off to OTHER peoples problems.

Liberals are the most self deluded group of people in this country, and clearly ignore their snip ideology doesn't benefit anyone, but liberals in power.

I came to the same conclusion as Rush and the others without even listening to them.

How? I read about the over 600+ people assaulted for wearing a MAGA hat. I heard not one single Democratic leader decry this and say stop it.

I read about ANTIFA rioting, destroying property, assaulting people just to stop conservative people from being allowed to speak. Often cities who are Democratic Party run, told police not to arrest or stop this behavior and to overlook it entirely and let it go.

I read ATS/Quora where conservatives are regularly told they are racists just for being conservative, and sexists, and homophobes and Islamophobes.

I watched as people were (doxed) cyber bullied for having conservative thoughts and ideas and were driven out of their jobs, had their personal lives ruined, had their businesses shuttered. This has happened over and over and over by the Hollywood Democrats, and regular progressive liberal Democrats alike. Not just Hollywood but the overwhelmingly Democratic tech industry is famous for firing people who dare to express a conservative thought, any conservative thought or idea.

I watched as Christian businesses were targeted (and I clearly noted not one single Muslim business was targeted) for destruction because they did not want to create art (cakes/flower arranging/creating artistic invitations) that went against their religious beliefs. I say targeted because one of these businesses never denied gay couples anything, just said they might when interviewed; another had gay employees who lost their jobs when the shop was forced to close due to liberal harassment/doxing/lawsuits. Christians were purposely targeted (not Muslims who have the same basic belief when it comes to homosexuality, actually stronger) for personal destruction, loss of livelihood, and loss of businesses.

Now tell me all of the above doesn't demonstrate, without listening to one single conservative talk show, the deep and abiding hatred the progressive/liberal/leftist Democrats have for everyone and anyone who dares to have a political thought they disagree with.

I haven't seen any Congressional or Senatorial Democratic Party leaders openly tell their constituents and party member to stop this hateful, mean and destructive behavior. To me this says they tacitly approve of it and it is DNC policy to behave in this way.

The really sad thing is this behavior is not being done by the fringe elements of the Democratic Party, but by regular everyday Democrats. Like the ones who rushed Rand Paul when minding his own business, eating lunch, and screamed at him and threatened his entire party - the were average looking 40-50ish white liberal Democrats behaving in this truly hateful manner.

Sure the right has fringe elements who do awful things. If that were true on the left, then one could dismiss it as fringe nut jobs. But everyday, average Democrats are doing this not as a group but as individuals who feel compelled to assault and attack people they identify as having voted for Trump or who are conservative. This is frightening. Yes, I will not utter a conservative thought in public out of fear that a Democrat might verbally attack or worse if they overhear me speaking.

I came to this conclusion without listening to Rush or the others. All on my own, just reading the news, and I read multiple sources and international sources, not just conservative sources.

I drive a lot for work, if I don't have podcasts I'm excited about, I'll squeeze some talk radio in, probably 1-3 hours a week.

Like all things, it's fine with moderation. If it's part of where you gather information.... It's whatever. If it's the only source you have, probably not so good since they're all pundits.

Inversely, the same could be said for those who only listen to MSNBC, or the likes.

Liberals act like you're dragging nails on a chalk board if you
turn on Fox news. I've purposely done it in the TV lounge
at truck stops. Often at night there might be 10 people in
the room sometimes more. And if I got the remote all I have
to do is stop on Fox news for a few seconds. And the divisive
shlt flies.

A liberal will scoff and a conservative will answer. Next
thing you know it's get'n loud in the TV room and the last thing
on anybody's mind is the TV. Because everyone is gonna make
their view heard.

Then I just set the remote down get up and walk around the
corner out of view in the hall. And I just listen busting TF up
out in the hall with people walk'n back n forth wondering WTF?
So I let em go for a little while then walk back in when it quiets
down.

And I'll say " You guys had no idea I did that shlt on purpose
did ya?"

And it's always the black guys who get it first. And just start
bust'n up. And then I tell em I was stand'n around the corner
listening. And they all bust up again. Then I tell em they all
sounded like a bunch of teenage girls arguing over who's
boyfriend is cuter. Believe it or not they all walk out amicably
having had a good laugh at themselves.

All that to say, Truckers not even politics can mess with that
brotherhood.

I've read similar comments on ATS. And I get it, it can seem overwhelming on ATS and a few other sites that allow conservative perspectives and passionate arguments for their opinions AND FACTS.

Also, regardless of a person's political persuasions, no one can deny that the world as a whole is struggling with liberal's ideals. We are drowning in the aggression by the left, struggling to maintain our rights, our morals, some semblance of discipline and responsibility. It's effin crazy what the left has done to destroy the backbone of society while they shove their crazy lies and ideas down our throats. Many powerful as well as nonpowerful people on the left have expressed their desire to destroy the systems that have made the USA great even though they themselves have benefited and would not be in a place to express their ideas today if it weren't for those very systems. Many other countries are also suffering.

A person drowning in an ocean isn't going to be thinking about the next great movie coming out, the party planned for next week or how well they're doing in their job at work. They WILL be obsessed and put all their energy into simply trying to stay afloat and alive.

That's what the conservatives as a whole are doing right now. We're drowning, trying to stay afloat in the bombardment of lies and what seems to be an onslaught by the majority of lefty liberals that are attempting to take away our rights, forcing us to fit into a generic society that lacks substance, individuality and personal responsibility.

Things are changing fast and if you believe in something, when your whole way of life is about to change, you fight for your life, you're passionate about it.

AMEN!!!

I highly suggest that people who deeply desire the progressive/liberal/Democratic party idea of society, where the outcome for all is fair and just, where everyone is always equal read the children's book "The Giver"

Don't cheat and see the movie, like all movies, it doesn't really touch the real meat of the book. The book is short and written for 10 year olds. So everyone ought to read it, no excuses not to.

The book is about the exact society that the progressive liberals are demanding.
Everyone is equal
Everyone has exactly the same consumer goods
No one is different from anyone else
There is no envy
There is no consumerism
It is the ideal progressive/liberal community in every single way
No one is ever upset or angry at another person because everything is fair and just and equal

If you, dear reader, are a progressive liberal, do yourself a favor and read the book "The Giver", you can download it into any device.
It is THE most seminal book of our generation and has won multiple awards.
Liberals made the movie about the book so you know it is safe for you to read.
No conservative propaganda, just the truth about progressive/liberal utopia.

You're telling me. Whenever I visit my mother she lives and breathes Supertalk 99 with Dan Mandis and Phil Valentine. She listens to it in the morning before work, she listens to it in the car, she listens to it while she is doing her chores. I just have to leave, because when I tell her to turn it off she accuses me of being a liberal supporter and Muslim sympathizer despite my constant reminders that I don't support any politician or person who believes they have the right to dictate how I live my life.

The BBC is a left leaning news source.


There is no consensus on that. It is accused of right wing bias by the left and left wing bias by the right.
