Biden Admin Brings Back Operation Rushbo Against Tucker Carlson
The Biden administration has managed to quickly duplicate the Obama administration's disastrous foreign policy of appeasement. Now it's busy copying its opposition campaign.
One of the dumber campaigns by the Obama administration was Operation Rushbo.
Operation Rushbo was a campaign by Obama's people to target Rush Limbaugh personally, as the most outspoken voice in the conservative movement, and to, seemingly 'destroy' the conservative movement by making Limbaugh into its public face.
As I said, it was the kind of dumb idea by urban lefties who lived in a social echo chamber and had no idea why anyone might want to listen to Rush.
Now, the Biden administration has decided to relaunch Operation Rushbo to target Tucker Carlson: the most prominent figure on FOX News.
Operation Rushbo was creepy enough (and ought to be remembered in light of all the media lectures about the Trump administration threatening the First Amendment by criticizing journalists), but it didn't involve an administration actually using what should be apolitical agencies, especially the military, to launch attacks against a journalist whom it disagrees with.
You can imagine the media's reaction if the Trump administration had used social media and press accounts from the Department of Defense or the Marine Corps to launch vocal personal attacks on a New York Times reporter.
Of course, all these standards and political norms go away the moment that lefties want to shatter them into tiny little pieces.
But we're also back to the old normal in which this kind of horrifying abuse of government authority is not only acceptable, it's celebrated. And it's also a reminder that the Biden administration is more radical, because the Democrats are more radical, but that they have no new ideas.
All they can do is bring back Operation Rushbo in a nastier form.
