12/16/11, "Why They're All Out for Newt," RushLimbaugh.com transcript
"I cannot emphasize loudly enough or often enough just how frightened and opposed the Republican establishment is of conservatism and of conservatives. I've explained to you why and the reasons run the gamut. But one is they think that conservatives will lose them elections, despite evidence. I know the evidence is to the contrary. But they still, the formative experience is the Goldwater landslide -- and then of course conservatives are also made up of people that embarrass the elites. They have southern accents, and they're pro-life, and they go to church (and they talk loudly about that). It's embarrassing. They look at them as a bunch of Tim Tebows that can't play the game, in a sense.
The elites look at conservatives as a bunch of Tim Tebows that really, when you get down to it, can't play the game. All they can talk about's God. So it's a threat. 'Cause what does Tebow do? Tebow shows you your shortcomings. Tebow illustrates your shortcomings. But if you're matched up against a failure, you look great. People forget: Taking back the House of Representatives after 40 years? Ladies and gentlemen, that is a massive undertaking. That is not insignificant -- and holding it all the way through 2006! I submit to you, I dare say, this is one of the reasons why Newt is hated. Not the commercial with Pelosi. That's why we on the conservative side don't like him. Stuff that he does like that's what makes us mad. "
Editor's note: Limbaugh hasn't come out in support of Gingrich, he's commenting on the GOP establishment response to him. Rush has one foot in the door of the establishment himself which may be why he knows how much they despise ordinary Americans. Media outlets like "National Review" have graduated to 'ruling class' membership while pretending to be 'conservative' (taqiyya). I also think Rush Limbaugh had more to do with Republicans taking over the House for the first time in 40 years than Gingrich did. At least, it couldn't have happened without Rush. The GOP was content being in the minority.

Spoken after the historic Tea Party victories in November 2010 that landed in the GOP because they had nowhere else to go, not because the GOP wanted most of them.
"The ruling class of the Republican Party doesn't want conservatives having any kind of a foothold, any success or any leadership in the party. ...(item half way down page)....So it appears to me they're (GOP) perfectly happy being in the minority if it means not supporting conservatives. (2/3 down page, Rush was using the term conservatives generally describing the new people elected in Nov. 2010)... Apparently the
- establishment Republicans
- will fight harder and more viciously to stop conservatives
- than to stop Obama and the left. "...(2/3 down page).

Taqiyya is the art of pre-empting one's opponent
- to prevent issues from being 'debated or discussed'
"Islamic spokesmen commonly use taqiyya as a form of 'outwitting'. The skilled taqiyya-tactician doesn’t want the matter at hand to be debated or discussed; so his opponent must be outwitted or preemptively outflanked by the use of taqiyya. The objective is to divert attention away from the subject
through duplicity and obfuscation. "
