This Crap has been going on for years!

The Democratic National Committee secretly deployed thousands of activists to call radio shows and disseminate talking points while posing as ordinary listeners ahead of the 1996 campaign, The Washington Free Beacon is reporting.
The Free Beacon attributed its information to documents in the Clinton Presidential Library. It said the DNC’s Talk Radio Initiative (TRI) had the blessing of the Bill Clinton White House.
Activists were to call radio shows and disseminate talking points while posing as ordinary listeners ahead of the 1996 campaign, The Washington Free Beacon is reporting.
The Free Beacon attributed its information to documents in the Clinton Presidential Library. It said the DNC’s Talk Radio Initiative (TRI) had the blessing of the Bill Clinton White House.
The activists were trained by Democrats to try to mold public opinion using talk radio, according to the website.
"Volunteers must be able to keep the project confidential so as not to create the image of a ‘Democratic conspiracy' to infiltrate Detroit area talk radio shows," a 1995 TRI guide prepared by Michigan Democrats said. "Democratic performance in the 1996 elections will no doubt be affected by the success or failure of this initiative."
And it added: "If you are afraid that producers are beginning to recognize your name and are weary of allowing you on the air, use an alias. For example, be Carol today, Sue tomorrow, and Debbie on Friday!"
The Free Beacon reported memos about the program were forwarded to Clinton, Vice President Al Gore and Chief of Staff Leon Panetta.
It said the idea was sparked after the 1994 elections when the GOP captured the House of Representatives.
"Democrats have largely ignored talk radio, and only since the last election, have we paid attention to how we can win back the airwaves and the discussion," a DNC report on the project read.

Rush has called them "seminar callers."  Callers he felt were posing in some way to make a point on his show.

He has a famous clip of Bill Clinton, flying somewhere on Air Force One during his Presidency.  He was giving an interview to someone complaining about Rush having 3 hours a day to oppose his policies!  Rush would laugh and say Bill Clinton had the bully pulpit of the Presidency any time he wanted to say something!

So yes, I have no surprise in hearing that people were deployed to make preplanned calls!

Yes indeed, El Rush Bo can spot a seminar caller in the first 10 or 15 seconds and he knows exactly how to deal with them.

This is not news to anyone who spends anytime listening to talk radio know. "Seminar callers" always give themselsves away.  All the host has to do is ask a few questions and quite often they will start complaining and insulting.  A big give away used to be the claim that they voted for George Bush twice but now republicans are "too devisive" and the things they say sound "too racist"  and the biggie "republicans need to reach across the isle to get things done".

Thank God for conservative talk radio.  Without it, we would be relying on the mainstream media for our information.

So even before the internet was widely available as an alternative source, people like Rush were sounding the alarm about what was going on.  I started to listen in 1992, when Bill Clinton was running for President.  I remember being in a patient's room with another nurse, doing a treatment on a patient.  The television was on "60 Minutes," and who was on but Bill and Hillary.  After seeing that and starting to listen to Rush, I was "woke."

I had starting becoming suspicious during the Clarence Thomas assault by Anita Hill.  Something about it didn't seem right!

Been educating myself since!
