Anti-Rush Limbaugh Smear Campaign, VoteVets.org
Smear Train's Next Stop: Land Of Make-Believe
*** NEW POST: Reid Overestimates Influence, Gets Burned ***
Ready to take the left's dishonest, anti- Rush Limbaugh smear campaign a major step further, an "anti- war veterans" group is unveiling an attack ad that will soon air on major television networks.
Somehow, a group called VoteVets.org not only cooked up an anti- Limbaugh hit piece at lightning speed, it had no trouble coughing up $60,000 for the occasion. Get the feeling the left had been planning this attack for some time?
Get a load of the lefties on the board of VoteVets.org. Partisanship, anyone?
According to The Hill, the new smear ad will air on CNN and FOX, as well as during Limbaugh's own radio show on key affiliates! Since we know and can easily prove the group's assertions are based on a lie, why are networks willing to run this crap?
From The Hill's coverage:
The VoteVets.org ad features Brian McGough, a veteran who was injured and received the Purple Heart.
“More and more troops and veterans of Iraq believe George Bush’s military policy has been a disaster ... I am one of them,” McGough said. “Rush Limbaugh called vets like me ‘phony soldiers’ for telling the truth about Iraq. Rush, the shrapnel I took to my head was real. My traumatic brain injury was real. And my belief that we are on the wrong course in Iraq is real. Until you have the guts to call me a ‘phony solider’ to my face, stop telling lies about my service.”
The ad is a play on Limbaugh’s on-air Monday challenge to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to repeat what he had said on the Senate floor about the talk show host to his face.
Here's the ad in question:
Clearly, the Soros Smear Train has just pulled into Land Of Make- Believe Station. Is there anything more disgusting than the level of sheer dishonesty that powers their movement? How can conservatives hope to fight back against a campaign funded by billionaire elitists?
Meanwhile, if concerned veterans truly want to be outraged over something, how about spending that money denouncing the treatment their fellow soldiers recently received in America- hating Oakland, California?
Michelle Malkin has more:
Two days ago, an e-mail about the rude treatment of Marines and soldiers returning from Iraq started making the rounds on the Internet. The brother of one of the mistreated troops who described the incident at Oakland Airport works on the Hill. The brother forwarded his family member’s e-mail around.
The e-mail is real, contrary to the Daily Kos nut who dismissed it as “fake” without any evidence whatsoever (can you say p-r-o-j-e-c-t-i-o-n). I contacted the Navy chaplain who serves with the Marines to verify the e-mail on Friday. He confirmed.
Now that sounds like a real outrage. What are the odds of Soros & Friends funding an ad denouncing that?
AT NEWSBUSTERS: Will media outlets wisely run away from phony Rush story? Meanwhile, CNN's still pounding O'Reilly over the faux racism flap.
