Comedian Limbaugh Attacks The Troops

Jon Soltz of Vote Vets responds to Rush Limbuagh's attack on US soldiers who served in Iraq who oppose continuing the Debacle:

Rush Limbaugh, on his show said that those troops who come home and want to get America out of the middle of the religious civil war in Iraq are “phony soldiers.” I'd love for you, Rush, to have me on your show and tell that to me to my face.

First, in what universe is a guy who never served even close to being qualified to judge those who have worn the uniform? Rush Limbaugh has never worn a uniform in his life – not even one at Mickey D's – and somehow he's got the moral standing to pass judgment on the men and women who risked their lives for this nation, and his right to blather smears on the airwaves? . . .

Time for a Congressional resolution condemning Limbaugh. Yes, I am serious. This is how the game of politics has to be played.

[UPDATE] Dems firing hard at Limbaugh.

    a resolution against Limbaugh NOW?

    I think it is a must.

    Barbara Boxer can do it.

    that might cause david broder to write something mean about the democrats being divisive. i think they should play it safe and pass a resolution condemning tooth decay.

  1. and turn buhdy’s manifestiolio into a ‘sense of the nation’ online petition, and see how many people we can get to ‘yea’ it. 

    but, then again, two wrongs dont make a right.

    have i mentioned lately that i would totally have jon soltz’s baby?

  2. If they want to be petty and call for condemnation of MoveOn’s ad, for simply asking a reasonable question, they should be willing to show the same contempt for rush’s comments.

    “Phony soldiers”? Who hates our military now, rush?

    Anyone willing to die, in the belief that they are doing so to protect our freedoms, is to be respected and thanked for their service.

    rush, you don’t have to go back to rehab, but can you go back to being quiet?

  3. unfortunately would not condemn ANYTHING or ANYONE right wing after all they didn’t allow the bill to be ammended to condemn Chambless’s attack on Cleland or the Swift Boat attacks on Kerry.

  4. as they did on the MoveOn resolution, it makes me believe they are wingnuts.  I’d like to see them do the same to Limbaugh, but know they won’t.  They mainly want to stifle the left.  They have no sincere conviction, as a whole, to leave Iraq anytime soon.  It’s a great idea, but as usual, they will give us nothing.  They now own this war as much as Bush.  Who can support such people?

    it was the Oxys talking. But I agree it’s a great opportunity to stuff a sock up his ass – which is the orifice from which he speaks.

  5. your idea, to Pelosi, Conyers, etc

    or should it go straight to Senate? How does one get the Congress to consider a symbolic resolution anyway? Via the DNC? Send it to Wes Clark and Olbermann for sure to get it in the msm.

    Why the hell not, symbolic gestures and talk talk talk is all the Congress seems to do anymore these days. They fiddle faddle while the nation and world burns. At least it would make their fiddle faddle into a pie war, and we all know how entertaining those are.

    has a piece up too.

    Send this to Joe, he might really push for it.  My philosophy has always been to use idiots to balance out some of the shit they do.

    out here in McCain/Kyl hell.  I wonder what our distinguished war mongering assholes think of Mr. Limbaugh’s comments….hmmm?

    Also, I received a robo-call from Congresswoman Gaby Giffords today.  She wants to meet me at the Safeway this Saturday.

  6. Politicians have no business voting to condemn free speech, no matter how hateful it is.

    Best,  Terry
