Rush Limbaugh says Apple is Republicans and Google is Democrats

Rush Limbaugh says Apple is Republicans and Google is Democrats
The grand commentator of the grand old party Rush Limbaugh is a name that part of America listens to. We are not here to judge which part, but we could not miss recent comments of Limbaugh who now says tech blogs hate Apple and that is why to him Apple is like Republicans and Google is Democrats.

One of America’s most well known radio show hosts jumped in with his analysis of the situation in technology and he’s got it all figured out: technology is like politics, and Apple is Republicans.

"I would venture to say that nine out of 10 bloggers writing high-tech hate Apple," Limbaugh pointed out in one of its arguments. "Apple is the equivalent of the Republicans on these blogs."

Now, this obviously dismisses the huge differences between the Apple company culture with its huge tolerance towards people of different sexual orientations for instance and the general position of the GOP.

Comparing Apple to Republicans however would not be a comprehensive analysis of technology and that’s why Limbaugh adds that while Apple are Republicans, the Democrats here are... “Google, Android and Samsung.”

Forgive Limbaugh the tautology of Google and Android, but let’s look into his core argument that follows: tech bloggers are young and that’s why they are Democrat. For them Republicans are "probably aliens from Mars, racists, sexists, bigot homophobes."

Wow, is it us or did this really escalate quickly? Limbaugh’s musings follow right below:

We’re curious about your opinion on this, is there any truth to what he’s saying and can you really compare Apple to the Republican party? The full tirade of the radio show host is right at the link below.

If you are part of the apple ecosystem, you are under apple's control and must do as they say. You do not have the freedom of choice. Got an app that apple suspiciously doesn't like? Not allowed in the store. Want a custom ringtone? Must use itunes. Must use itunes for everything. Want a custom DEFAULT browser or DEFAULT keyboard? Forget about it. Must use apples. Even with a "jailbreak" you still can't do all of these things. Apple is all about control. So maybe not exactly communist, but more like a dictatorship.

Very true+1 that includes Darkjedi Fanboy™ And he criticised me and my wife. Look how nasty this rotten company is. He praises and loves Apple. No wonder Droid does was right. Apple needs to be Bankrupt. Right now ™ every company should stop supplying goods and services to them ®

Actually, your point only proves what an iDiot Limbdouche is; DarkestofJedddiiiii is a Democrat whose head explodes if you say anything about his DaddyBama and he owns and loves his iThingy; conversely, I am more of a rePublikan and I simply abhor iRubbish, my huge Galaxy Note 2 is what does it for me. My friends (also who aren't Dems') also love their Androids!

Yeah... I'm pretty conservative and at one point considered myself a Republican. And the only thing I hate more than Rush Limbaugh is Apple. I've always thought Rush was obnoxious and a very poor leader for conservatives to idolize. Apple is the OS for more simple minded people who don't like complexity and I don't think political party lines holds an exclusive to simple minded following. But again that's only my personal opinion.

So you only have RePub friends? I have both parties as friends. I also agree with you about limbo. Some people are pathetic.

Thank you! That's exactly why Apple = Liberalism in the tech sense.

Was thinking exactly the same! Apple is about big government, wants to control everything, wants you dependent, Google is about entrepreneurship, creativity and freedom.

Why is it so important for you to tell us your life... We DON'T care, now, miss far right, get in there and do the dishes. Our President won two terms in a row. Let it rest.

Disagree to a certain extent. iPhone 5 still holds its ground to flagships today.

since when, exactly? I don't even mean this in terms of hating on the phone as much as the competition has improved far faster on both UI and hardware capability.

It's fluid running iOS 6. Still one of the best cameras on a smartphone. Still has a beautiful design. Still has a all around great ecosystem. Anything else?

however battery life is crappy and cannot accomplish one of the simple task in the world. Send a damn mp3 via bluetooth and make it work. iphone 5 is great dont get me wrong but It time to say "Apple the world is bigger than you think"

Did you just say battery life sucks on the iPhones 5? You don't know what you're talking about.

My fiancé gets 5 hours maybe 6 of bettery life on her iphone 5. I get 11-14 hours on my Lumia 920 so yes battery life is horrible. I know people with iphones that complain about the battery life also.

Haha fluid, yea a glorified app launcher should be. It no longer has the best camera though. iPhone 5 is old hat now. You haven't use many other cameras if you think this, either that or you're a blind fanboy

Blind fanboy for saying the iPhone 5 is still a great smartphone? Fanboy even when I'm rocking a GS3? Just because it's an Apple product doesn't mean it sucks. Lol what a disappointing comment. Read comment #21 please.

The iPhone 5 runs smoother with a dual core setup than some Android's do with quad. Not to mention the graphics chip in the phone is still incredibly powerful. Specs are often mistaken as determining consumer experience. That couldn't be far from the truth.

I agree, but it's not above Apple to use the hardware angle when they are better as well when it suits them

It runs slightly smoother with half the cores doing an eighth as much. Whoopdedoo.
