Is Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) the tech company equivalent of the Republican Party? That’s the impression radio talk show host and political commentator Rush Limbaugh gets from reading “high-tech and gadget blogs.” However, Limbaugh isn’t trying to characterize the political views of Apple — he’s merely drawing parallels between how Apple is treated in the world of technology and how he perceives Republicans are treated in the world of politics.
“I would venture to say that nine out of 10 bloggers writing high-tech hate Apple,” Limbaugh said during his show on Friday. “Apple is the equivalent of the Republicans on these blogs, and Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), Android, and Samsung (SSNLF.PK) are the equivalent of the Democrats. They’re perfect, they can’t do anything wrong, they’re ideal, and everybody hates Apple.”
The radio host added: “Pro-Apple bloggers are looking at the way the pro-Samsung, Google, and Android bloggers write, and they’re now starting to write about the media bias…I mean, they’re chronicling how these pro-Samsung and Google, Android guys are faking data, faking news to make it look bad for Apple when it really isn’t.”
