It’s time to put real pressure on Rush Limbaugh. His show is broadcast on Armed Forces Radio, and this time we are going to go straight to the lifeblood of Rush’s show — Congress. Congress has the power to remove Rush Limbaugh from Armed Forces Radio, and it won’t be as easy for elected officials to ignore our call.
Tax dollars are used to fund Armed Forces Radio, and that money is not intended for radio show hosts to spout insults at our soldiers. These “phony soldiers” have simply exercised their right to free speech, as Rush Limbaugh does on a daily basis. Simply because a majority of our troops who return from Iraq disagree with Rush on Bush’s failed war policy does not give him the right to dishonor their service.
Unlike Rush Limbaugh, members of Congress cannot casually brush off the concerns of citizens. Since Rush won’t listen to us, we’re going directly to Congress, who can prevent him from disrespecting and censoring the voices of our soldiers.
Harry Reid only got 41 signatures for his letter of condemnation of Limbaugh. One of those missing, quite predictably, is the Connecticut for Lieberman candidate — who voted to condemn MoveOn and knows who his daddy is.
It would be great to see Senate Democrats get together and put some real pressure on Limbaugh.
