Angelo Carusone - Progressive Hero

Posted by Gregory of Yardale at June 13, 2010 8:14 AM

Angelo Carusone is a law student at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He has become a hero to the Progressive Left through his obsessed crusade to get Glenn Beck off the air through advertiser boycotts.

Armed with his homemade transcripts, Carusone dispatches letters or e-mails to corporate executives asking them if they are aware that their ads are running in an hour when Glenn Beck said, "[insert newest offensive sound bite]." Many times, that's enough to make advertisers pull their commercials, although Carusone admits that by now his reputation for peskiness may help grease the wheels.

And it doesn't stop with Glenn Beck. Carusone is determined to force everyone who expresses an opinion he disagrees with off the air. "Carusone is mounting similar campaigns targeting Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and CNN."

The progressive left rationalizes this with lame BS like: "We're not censoring him, we're just trying to hold him accountable." Nonsense. This is about the left trying to silence any prominent person who expresses an opposition opinion.

It's much easier than constructing a counter-argument, disputing facts, or defending the progressive movement's long history of failure and fascism.
