Time to Mobilize

The Rush Limbaugh fiasco is entering its sixth day and now the Legislature on the Democratic side has gotten into the act. Tom Harkin got onto the Senate Floor and said this,

Well, I don’t know. 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. But that shouldn’t be an

Harry Reid said this

“Freedom of speech is one of our country’s most cherished values,” Reid told
the Senate. “Nothing sets us further apart than the countries and regimes we
oppose than our belief that everyone’s opinion matters, and everyone has the
right to express it.
“That is why, when we hear things on the radio that are
offensive, by and large, we tolerate them. But last week, Rush Limbaugh went way
over the line – and while we respect his right to say anything he likes, his
unpatriotic comments cannot be ignored.”

The truth is that Media Matters, wholly owned smear merchant subsidiar of anti American radical George Soros cooked up this supposed controversy to try and take the heat off the Betray Us ad and to try and marginalize a voice that they do not agree with.

Finally, while unfortunately, I will be tripling his own audience with this, Joe Scarborough did stand up for Rush this morning

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Now you've got Media Matters going after Rush Limbaugh. This
really does look like a phony story about a phony soldier.

WILLIE GEIST: Once again, Joe, as we did with O'Reilly [regarding his
"Sylvia's" comments] we went back and looked at the transcript. The comment
they're talking about is the, quote, "phony soldiers" comment that Rush Limbaugh
made when he was talking to a caller on his show last week. Well, he was talking
about a specific solder, this guy Jesse Macbeth, you might remember, who claimed
to have served in Iraq and came back and criticized the war. He never went to
Iraq, never served.

SCARBOROUGH: Hold on one second, by definition, can I Google "phony

GEIST: I don't think you have to Google on this one. So, it's sort of hard to
argue that he was, that Limbaugh was [not] right on this one. Again, no context
ever given. They see the quote "phony soldiers," and that's all they hear. But
he was actually talking about a person who actually was a phony soldier.

SCARBOROUGH: Yeah, so it's been blown out of context.

GEIST: Of course.

SCARBOROUGH: I'm sure Media Matters will make a lot of money for blowing it
out of context, cause people hate Rush Limbaugh, and you know, so who knows,
maybe George Soros will write them a big, fat million-dollar check.

So, if you have had enough, and you want your voice heard, there is something simple that you can do. First, email each of your Senators and your Congressperson (I have included a link to find all at the end of the post. Also, you can email or call Clear Channel and tell them to stand up for their talent and I will include their information at the end as well.

Here is a reprint of my email to my own Senator, Dick Durbin,

I understand that the House and the Senate is floating a resolution attempting to condemn Rush Limbaugh for supposed anti military comments he made on September 25th. Some people may in fact be fooled by this stunt. I know that you Democrats were embarrassed and put on the defensive when your allies at Moveon.org put out an advertisement that was vile and scurrilous. I know that you are hoping to get back on offense so to speak, but I for one know what is going on. This supposed controversy has its nexus at Media Matters, the smear merchant, wholly owned subsidiary of not only Hillary Clinton but George Soros. George Soros is a billionaire anti American far left radical and he is attempting to buy the next election. The fact that this has made it into the Senate shows how powerful he is and if you vote for it, even though you know full well the controversy is contrived, you will be exposed as being in his pocket. The country will not stand for a politician, any politician, to be bought and paid for, by an Anti American radical. I expect you to at least abstain from voting for this filth. If you don't I will do whatever I need to do to expose your connection to this anti American radical.

Finally, if you vote for this ludicrous resolution, I also expect you to bring these resolutions to the floor as well...

1- A resolution condemning Tom Harkin (D) for lying about his military service record
2- A resolution condemning Harry Reid (D) for saying the “war is lost”
3- A resolution condemning John Kerry (D) for implying those in the military are dumb and “terrorizing Iraqis
4- A resolution condemning John Murtha (D) for saying our troops committed “murder” and “war crimes” in Haditha
5- A resolution condemning Dick Durbin for comparing our troops to “Pol Pot” and “Nazi’s”
6- A resolution condemning Hillary Clinton (D) for ever so nicely saying General Petraeus was a liar and his testimony required the “willing suspension of disbelief”

Those without sin, Senator, should cast the first stone, and you once claimed that Gitmo was not much different than Soviet Gulags. My grandfather spent twenty years in a Soviet Gulag because his successful business was a threat to Stalin. You compared our soldiers to those that abused my grandfather, and that is offensive. Thus, if you have the nerve, given your own history, to vote for this resolution, you should be honorable enought to also bring to the floor a resolution condemning yourself.

To find your Senator go here and to find your Representative go here

The Left is warming up to go after Anne Coulter.
Rush should be arrested! 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

They have been going after Coulter her whole career. Her new book is a collection of attacks. The Conservatives have plenty of character assassins. This is not partisan. The difference is they don't have a network a la the one created by Soros to filter these attacks from the merchants to the media and even to the legislators.
