Rush Limbaugh Media Matters Smear, Armed Forces Radio Network

TARGET CONFIRMED

Lefty Smear Machine Gunning For Armed Forces Radio

If the left's smear merchants can't succeed in bringing down Rush Limbaugh entirely, will they settle for a partial victory?

At least for now, that seems to be their modus operandi, with a restart of a previously unsuccessful campaign to have the talk titan removed from the Armed Forces Radio Network.

Limbaugh's presence on the military's overseas broadcasting arm has long been a sore spot with "progressives" who would rather have troops hear demoralizing messages from NPR and Air America Radio.

In 2006, they nearly succeeded in eliminating Limbaugh and fellow conservative Sean Hannity's programs from the network, but military brass subsequently changed their minds after an Internet backlash emerged.


This time, the George Soros- funded, anti- American smear machine feels it can somehow convince Americans that Rush Limbaugh is against the troops. Could anything be more absurd?

But with the mainstream media clearly aboard, their next move is a step- by- step removal of Rush's program from the airwaves. Does it matter what he really said? Of course not, the truth is irrelevant.

From Democratic Underground:


Demand that Rush Limbaugh be taken off the Armed Forces Radio Network, IMMEDIATELY


Demand that Rush Limbaugh be taken off the Armed Forces Radio Network, IMMEDIATELY

My husband spent 20 years in the Navy and has been to war (Vietnam-2 tours). I was an Ombudsman for 2 of my husband's ships making sure that the sailors and their loved ones were kept up to date on the ship's activities. We served our country as so many have.

Where does Rush Limbaugh get off calling our soldiers 'phony', as he sits his boiled ass in an air-conditioned room spewing hate all day and never had the courage to serve.

He owes EVERY soldier an apology and he should be taken off the air of the Armed Forces Radio Network. IMMEDIATELY! You can go here to make your statement

Rush Limbaugh is the biggest 'phony' of all, he had no Balls to serve.

he absolutely did. And boy howdy, is it ever gonna come back to bite him in the asterisk.

As it bloody well should, too.

We're mad as hell and we ain't gonna take it any more.

This is the perfect sh*tstorm for poor widdle Rushie McLimbaugh.

And it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

:0)

8. I emailed them with the following statement

Limbaugh needs to be removed from your radio programming for his insulting and demeaning statement about "phony soldiers". This draft-dodging loudmouth needs to be kept off the air waves.


And from CBS Public Eye:


It’s too early to know how much is going to be made of this story, but it’ll be interesting to see how the coverage of Rush belittling some soldiers compares to MoveOn.org’s ad criticizing General Petraeus. (Labelled a "misstep" here.) He might not generate the media buzz he once did, but Rush still ranks as the number one most influential talk show host… and is heard on the Armed Forces Radio Network.

Regardless of how zealously (or not) they support our military engagement in Iraq, each and every soldier deserves our respect – a sentiment echoed in polls commissioned surrounding the Petraeus testimony. Are their wounds or scars “phony” if they take issue with our foreign policy?

Coincidentally or not, I see a small left-generated online campaign has begun to urge the Armed Forces Radio Network to remove Limbaugh from its airwaves. And the network’s website today indicates that “there was a hard drive failure yesterday” at the site.


In addition to an online petition, anti- free speech liberals are mounting a pressure campaign utilizing AFRN's feedback page. Why not send your own comments? Let's get to work and counter their stupidity, before it's too late.

  • Rush isn't the only one attacked, but at least he's on the air over there. http://savebabygorilla.com/2007/09/26/artie-wont-be-going-to-iraq/ says that someone else, who was willing to go over Thanksgiving or Christmas, won't be allowed to entertain the troops. IMO it's due to political reasons from the right that are every bit as ugly as the distortions about Rush Limbaugh.

    Oddsman m. - What evidence do you have of that? All that your linked post says is that the USO turned him down. The USO has a set of established standards for in theater performers. I am sure that the bloated, drug addled Artie Lang may cross the line in a few places. (By the way, I think that he is occasionally funny, but he is a mess as a person.)

    TC, I'm still adjusting to life without a daily dose of alcohol psychosis and "Bar Audie-isms, 101", so help those of us clueless barbacks out, just for old times' sake...

    WTF were you trying to communicate before lapsing into unconsciousness?

    For historical purposes only, of course...

    I'd actually never even heard of him.

    I think if I'd be stuck in some stupid sandbox, I'd rather have Joan Jett...

  • Rush must be silenced! Free Speech can't be totally free...

    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe says
    smear ALL conservatives

    after getting caught
    for smearing a patriot


    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe thinks
    the Right is always wrong

    and the Left is always right
    and facts don't matter at all
    .

  • Armed Forces Radio Network cites their reason for not dropping the RL show is that "we put on the air what our listeners want to hear." I bet if he started an anti-war rant they'd have him pulled off the air in 3 seconds!
