In what appears to be overt coordination with the White House, the Democratic Party, and organizations such as Media Matters for America, the left has pressed home what it sees as a sudden political opportunity provided by Rush's provocative reaction--despite his apology. The goal is not to protect women--who are frequently mocked by liberal talk show hosts without protest--but to force Rush, one of the most effective forces in conservative media, off the airwaves.(H/t Instapundit)
Carl M. Cannon pointed out the obvious political nature of the ongoing attack in an article at Real Clear Politics, noting the election-year tactics being used by the left:
Limbaugh's Attack a Gift to Democrats & ObamaThe hate continues, purely to score political points and gain an advantage in November:
...Barack Obama, using the shillelagh handed to him by the talk radio king, telephoned the self-same law student to commiserate with her over Limbaugh’s crudeness. ... [L]iberals, led by two California Democratic congresswomen, launched a counter-assault on him that included not only censuring Limbaugh but calling on advertisers to boycott his show.
Oh yeah, Rush. If I ever see you out somewhere (which I probably won't since I hang out in places where non-whites are allowed), I'm going to punch you in the throat.Obama chose to re-insert himself into the controversy on Tuesday, days after the original incident and apology, only to add fuel to an already ugly fire of persecution. For his part, Obama won't even speak to offensive comments from his own party chair, while gladly ginning up more hatred toward Rush:
First, Obama was asked about Rush Limbaugh’s degrading comments about Georgetown Law student and liberal activist Sandra Fluke. Obama talked at some length about why Limbaugh’s remarks were wrong. But when he was asked if he agreed with his hand-picked DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s comments that opponents of the mandate are waging a “war on women,” Obama declined to comment.
Right on cue, the media picked up on Obama's Limbaugh remarks.

Inciting Violence Against Limbaugh
As a perfect follow up on my post yesterday about the viciousness and dehumanization exhibited by the Left, there is this piece from Breitbart's Big Government site about threats of violence against Rush Limbaugh for comments he made regarding an insurance subsidy activist; and to whom Limbaugh has already apologized. Here's the key part, though:
