Rush Limbaugh Tells Dittoheads To Boycott GM

The trade site Detroit Bureau has a story up today talking about how a conservative talk show host is whipping up his listeners to boycott GM products, and of course, if it's controversial and can drive ratings, Rush Limbaugh will get his one cent in, egging his listeners onto the latest misguided crusade. Here's a sample:

They don't want to do anything to make Obama's policies work! This is an untold story, by the way. Of course, the government-controlled media is not gonna report anything like this but there are a lot of people who are not going to buy from Chrysler or General Motors as long as it is perceived Barack Obama is running it, because people do not want his policy to work here because this is antithetical to the American economic way of life. The government does not own car companies; the government does not design cars, not in a country that works. So people aren't going to buy products from companies that Obama runs.

Is this the opposite of Buy American? What do you think?
