The "Phony" Attack on Rush Limbaugh

Liberal senators continued their attack on free speech in America by trying to pass a resolution in the U.S. Senate condemning talk-show host Rush Limbaugh. They say that Rush slandered the military by calling anti-war soldiers "phony" soldiers.

Rush actually called one soldier a phony, a soldier named Jesse Macbeth. Macbeth had been kicked out of the army after 44 days of boot camp, and had never seen any military action.

But Macbeth became a anti-war hero when he falsely claimed to have served as a Army Ranger in the Middle-East. He told stories of witnessing massacres of innocent civilians in Iraq and the burning of the bodies, all supposedly done by our U.S. troops. The anti-war liberals bought the story hook, line and sinker because they hate the military.

Macbeth was finally exposed as the phony he is, and Rush talked about it on his show. There have been other fakers like Macbeth, and Rush rightly called them phonies. But now senators like Harry Reid and Tom Harkin are condemning Rush, even though they know the truth of the matter.

Harry Reid said "During his show last Wednesday, Limbaugh was engaged in one of his typical rants. This one was unremarkable, indistinguishable from his usual drivel, which has been steadily losing listeners for years, until he crossed that line by calling our men and women in uniform who oppose the war in Iraq, and I quote, "phony soldiers." This comment was so beyond the pale of decency, and we can't leave it alone."

Tom Harkin took the cheapest shot: "Maybe he was just high on his drugs again. I don’t know whether he was or not. If so, he ought to let us know."

Harry Reid and Tom Harkin don't really care about the troops serving in Iraq, they have worked to support the terrorists and defeat our military men and women. Their real motive in attacking Rush and other talk-radio hosts is to deny them their free speech. They also hope to drive a wedge between conservatives and Rush, since Rush is the most visible leader of the conservative movement.

Tell Reid and Harkin what you think of them.

Conservatives need to let these senators know that we support the troops, that we don't like "phony" soldiers, and that we stand for free speech in America.
