The uncrowned king of conservatism, Rush Limbaugh, made this observation on his Jan. 14 radio show:

“… the way to understand what’s happening in the media, inside the beltway … is to understand the objective. (It is) the elimination of any effective conservative opposition. And that goes for the Republican establishment too, the Democrat Party naturally, and it is Obama’s modus operandi.”

Elaborating on the viciously successful attacks by progressives, and a desperately needed yet woefully lacking unity among conservatives, he said:

“Look at how many conservatives are demonized … their character, their credibility.

My mind can easily replace the song’s fast paced sequential “boomer decades” images and lyrics with a much shorter timespan of frightening images from today:
