The Democratic MoveOn.org/Media Matters Party

A few days ago, Harry Reid cowardly pandered to the extreme left yet again by proposing a Senate censure against Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh mentioned the words “phony soldiers” in reference to soldiers who claim to be soldiers (but in fact aren’t) in a false effort to get free money and other benefits from the government that they haven’t rightfully earned. Rush never said all of the troops were phony, but that didn’t stop Reid and about 40 other Democrats from calling him to the table in a biased effort to silence him while purposely attempting to intimidate other conservative talk-show hosts and their advertisers. And all this simply because Rush’s views are different from those of Reid and his cronies.

Here are Reid’s exact words from the Senate floor regarding Limbaugh:

“Last week, Rush Limbaugh went way over the line, way over the line. While I respect his right to say anything he likes, his unpatriotic comments I cannot ignore. 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.’”

Hmm. Now I don’t listen to talk radio much simply because I don’t have the time. But I have been following this story because, for me, this is THE single greatest evidence of the ‘Liberal’s Caliphate’ to control the media by forcing it to show only a liberal point of view. Here’s why:

Rush has a 20+ year track record of supporting the men and women in uniform and has supported the Iraq war from day one, but as soon as he says one little thing that they can twist and distort in an effort to falsely slander him with – they try to censure him. But wait, Mr. Reid… If you can’t ignore his “unpatriotic comments,” why is it that you never censured the following Democrats for their anti-soldier remarks:
  • John Kerry – “You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."
  • John Kerry – “American soldiers [ have been] going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, [and] women”
  • Jack Murtha – U.S. Marines have "killed innocent civilians in cold blood"
  • Barack Obama – Our troops are “just air-raiding villages and killing civilians”
  • Hillary Clinton – Believing General Petraeus requires a “suspension of disbelief”
  • Dick Durbin – Our American troops are “Nazi’s”

In fact, Mr. Reid himself has boasted several anti-troop remarks:

  • Reid – “The war is lost”
  • Reid – “20 minutes ago in the Senate…we killed the Patriot Act.”
I've just gotta ask...

Why didn’t you censure these individuals, including yourself, Harry? Why haven’t you censured Rosie O’Donnell for her hideous remarks against our troops? Or Sean Penn? Or Michael Moore? Or Keith Olbermann? Or ABC for their network special on "phony heroes" that aired just days before Rush's comments?

In fact, when the Senate put forth a resolution condemning MoveOn.org for printing a despicable ad which trashes our troops and their leader, Gen. Petraeus, why did you vote AGAINST censuring them?!?!?!

Oh, that's right, because you are bowing to the alter of these left-wing groups as you blindly fulfill any task they put you to – regardless of how utterly insane it may be! You've become a puppet dangling from the fingers of Markos Moulitsas.

It makes me sick. Not surprisingly, those that voted against censuring MoveOn.org all voted for censuring Limbaugh. Hmm. ‘Nope, there’s no liberal agenda here in Washington! No bias here!’

Can you see what’s happening here? Leading Dems in Washington have sold their souls to a couple of liberal websites started up by a bunch of deranged college hooligans who are only in their twenties. This is frightening, kids. Your Democrat controlled government has turned their backs on standing for ethics and values. They no longer serve you and they no longer serve the troops who protect them. Instead they only serve and grovel at the feet of a few anti-conservative groups like MoveOn, Media Matters, and the DailyKos – and they will continue to only serve the deep pockets of the Devil himself, Mr. George Soros.
