Ruch Limbaugh Calls Troops Who Advocate U.S. Withdrawal From Iraq Phony Soldiers

There has been so much talk about Ruch Limbaugh and the comments he made on his September 26 radio show. As the above video shows, ol' Rush is now claiming that he never said he called service members who advocate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq "phony soldiers."

He now states, the comment followed a discussion of Jesse Macbeth, an anti-war activist who pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for pretending to be an injured Iraq war veteran.

Well, here's the radio program on the 26 of September; You tell me of whom Mr. Limbaugh was calling phony soldier:

Now I know that I'm not the smartest man in the world, but didn't you hear Rush agree that service members who advocate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq are "phony soldiers" and then Rush called them "phony soldiers" himself.

If you don't have an answer for this, take a look at what's being said at Army Of Dude.

Yup, you got it; Rush kept saying it was about "Jesse Macbeth" but, as usual, Rush lied.

Thanks for that link to Army of Dude, which I saw over at Left of Centrist! Anyway, after reading most of the comments over there (at Dude) I had to go back and re-listen to Rush. Yup, that's what he said, alright. It wasn't a reference to one guy.

LET'S TALK said...

Ronald 'More-More' Moshki, he lied and tried to redo everything to hide the lie and just forgot or just did not think that others had the sense to call and show him the lie.

Candace, I have not seen Left's post as of yet, but thank you for coming by and taking a look at Let's Talk.

I enjoyed reading Army Of Dude and I tried to let others know about the site, what a great read.

Every time I think Limbaugh can't stoop any lower, he does. For this drug-addled chickenhawk couch potato to insult people who've risked their lives in Iraq -- don't get me started.

This draft dodger has lots of room to talk.

I believe him. Seriously, there's no one more trustworthy than a junkie.

Whenever I need any kind of advice about life, I always head down to the local Methadone clinic, and randomly pick someone from the line.

"You look the type of person who has their shit together. Got any advice?"

The Wingnut Party is like a giant damn NA, AA and Al-Anon meeting.

Ronald 'More-More' Moshki said...

Rush's hideous character was evident long before his drug problem was revealed.

The "Drive By's" have never called Rush on the lies about his draft-dodging or the whoppers about his non-existent high-school career as "a tackle." Yeah he was a second-string placekicker for his sophomore year. Even then he knew he coud use getting his picture taken in uniform to his later advantage.

And he used to say about Sick-Willie: "You can never trust a draft-dodger"; you should know, Rush.

LET'S TALK said...

He can stoop reallylow tom.

Larry this guy is beyond any type of truth.

fairlane just maybe this guy forgot jis drugs for the week.

Ronald 'More-More' Moshki, I will never understand how Republicans could listen to such a man.

let's talk-

Excellent post. That's the first time that I actually heard the whole conversation in context and I'm thrilled! I just read on another blog (a guy that claims to be Independent but tows the right wing line in every single post) and of course, he was defending Rush. He admitted to not hearing the whole tape, but believed what Drudge and Rush said, that Rush wasn't talking about all soldiers who don't believe in the war, just one guy. Honestly, the right wing nuts just live to have this shit shoveled their way. I don't get it. I guess it's almost as if they are mentally incapable of hearing or seeing reality.

Rush really disgusts me and listening to him makes me ill. Did you notice that near the end, during the second call he sounded like he was chomping away on something? The fat pig.

LET'S TALK said...

Hi Mary Ellen, this is why I posted him trying to lie and change what was said and the original program on the 26 of Sept.

A lot of conservatives have come to his rescue, saying that he was talking about one person, yet the radio program tells the facts. that he talks about all troops who are against the war.

He's scum.
His "excuse" for not serving was a cyst on his ass that thousands, maybe millions of others served and had.

This man Limbaugh is the lowest form of coward America has ever created.

LET'S TALK said...

Well said 1138, I concur!

Ronald 'More-More' Moshki said...

We need to recruit at least 200 folq to try and jam Rush's lines. Maybe even 100 would be enough.

Rush is the piece of filth who has hurt non-human animals more than any person in hx.

Emmanuel M Liu said...

Rush is an ass

LET'S TALK said...

Ronald 'More-More' Moshki, this guy is just bad news with problems.

Emmanuel M Liu, I concur!

I think and have always thought that Rush is the devil. You guys know what I think about involving soldiers in politics!

At any rate, here is a petition to sign:

Take Rush Limbaugh Off Armed Forces Radio:

Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the site equestrian1.

So now a month later - almost two, when all the dust has settled and it is now known that this clip also gives an incomplete picture, not one person here came back to say "I'm sorry, I jumped the gun, I fell for tricky editing because it told me what I wanted to hear."

Likely no one reading other than the site host, but it deserves to be said. Not one commenter here, amidst all the accusations of someone else lying, had the honor to come back and apologize. I suppose the other possibility is that after hearing the version they wanted to hear, no one bothered to learn the full story.

LET'S TALK said...

Assistant Village Idiot, there is no incomplete picture here. What has been proven is that your dear Rush, doctored his audio and that is what has been proven.

I do not hear you make any stink over what has been said by this draft dodger, who has the conservative way of insulting Americans that go against his way of misleading the people.

No, there is no apology to be given at this site, not for the truth about Limbaugh. Peddle that at those sites that follow this guy, not here.
