DUmmies Want Rush Limbaugh Removed From Armed Forces Radio

The DUmmies want Rush Limbaugh removed from Armed Forces Radio. Actually, they REALLY want Rush removed from the airwaves entirely but they are willing to start with Armed Forces Radio as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Why I think Rush Limbaugh should be removed from Armed Forces Radio..." It will be interesting to see what the Obama Administration will do. Right now Barack Obama is obsessed by one talk radio host. Talk about insecure! So it will be interesting to see if Obama follows DUmmie advice and remove El Rushbo from Armed Forces Radio with the bigger goal of getting him off all the airwaves via the "Fairness" Doctrine. Remember, liberals cannot abide public dissent. Despite the fact that they have the major TV networks and major newspapers in their pockets, the thought of Rush speaking to millions of dittoheads out there is something they find intolerable. So let us now watch the DUmmies screech for the removal of Rush from Armed Forces Radio in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if Gabriel Heater ever generated such outrage, is in the [brackets]:

Why I think Rush Limbaugh should be removed from Armed Forces Radio...

[Why your really think Rush Limbaugh should be removed from all the airwaves.]

Out of hundreds of long-format talks shows in this country, Limbaugh is currently one of four shows carried by Armed Forces Radio. That, by the way, was only the case for the last 4 years - for 10 years before that Rush had a monopoly on AFR.

[You want Randi Rhodes on Armed Forces Radio?]

His inclusion in the AFR lineup sends a clear message: Rush Limbaugh is part of the mainstream of political opinion. I don't think he is. I think he represents a tiny, shrinking minority of reactionary opinion.

[According to DUmmies, Randi Rhodes is in the mainstream of political opinion.]

The Abu Ghraib scandal? Rush thinks it was more like fraternity initiation pranks.

[Thought Crime!]

Torture at Guantanamo Bay? Rush started a Club Gitmo site complete with t-shirts. He proudly displays pictures of active duty soldiers wearing these t-shirts.

[Thought Crime!]

Now, I can understand Bush and Cheney keeping Rush on. They were the authors of the above policies and had an active interest in making it seem that these were mainstream American opinions. Bush had Limbaugh at the White House for several occasions. Cheney was a guest on Limbaugh’s program many, many times.

[If they were out of the mainstream of political , how did they get elected AND re-elected?]

But Obama is now trying to set a new tone and he clearly wants to assure the world that America will no longer tolerate torture. Having Limbaugh as one of four voices on Armed Forces Radio will make that job much, much harder.

[You want Obama to assure the DUmmies that he will no longer tolerate Rush. And now to the other DUmmies...]

Totally Agree with you but don't know how it can get done. Boycotting his advertisers hasn't worked - maybe he'll just "die off" (meaning becoming irrelevant and a joke), like what is happening to Bill O'Lielly, Hannity & Faux Noise in general.

[Too bad for your dopey argument that Fox News ratings are now higher than ever. Oh, and what happened to Randi Rhodes and the other Air America programs?]

They can keep him on - but insist that he have a liberal cohost who would call him on all his bullshit lies.

[Could Randi Rhodes stay sober enough to do all that?]

Republicans are petty, vindictive, partisan a-holes. I say shut him down. Why should our government support someone who wants the government to fail?

[The FUnniest thing about that statement is that this DUmmie is absolutely clueless about his self-irony.]

Plus, he's a traitor to this country's constitution and wants citizen's to give up their right to open and accountable government in favor of secrecy and privilege of the powerful elite.

[Let the Thought Crime trials begin!]

The whole purpose of Free Speech was to allow dissent and criticism of the Government by the people. Nothing could be more demonstrative of our freedom than a government run radio station broadcasting programming critical of that same government.

[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]

Bull shit. Limbaugh was cheerleader for the Bush Administration. During an Obama Administration things are different. You can't allow propagandist Rush Limbaugh to continue his attack on the CIC in the theater of operations. He has been on AFN for far too long. It has nothing to do with freedom of speach.

[Said the DUmmie denying reality.]

He can be taken off at the pleasure of the CIC. We won't need to rely on your reasoning, thank you. Limbaugh=gone!

[The CIC can also be a DIC (Dictator-In-Chief) in DUmmie minds.]

We don't need no stinkin' evidence. Limbaugh is gone! Now, go lick your wounds, your side lost. Obama won.

[Mr. Tolerance speaks out.]

Limbaugh is a threat to morale. His entire aim is to undermine support for the Commander In Chief. This cannot be allowed in the theater of operations. AFN is not the same as commercial radio.

[Thought Crimes must not be allowed!]

There is absolutely no reason why irrational hate mongering need be supported by Armed Forces Radio.

[This will also become the rationale for banning Rush from the airwaves in general. See it won't be defined as banning free speech, just as banning "hate speech" as defined by DUmmies.]

I am all in favor of a wide range of opinions, but that does not mean that Rush is a sacred cow. Removing his show and replacing it with another is not equivalent to government censorship.

[Another DUmmie in a Denial of Reality mode.]

Limbaugh is divisive. It interferes with the military mission if your soldiers don't trust each other. Worse, even, if they create social subsets from little tests of loyalty. Undermines everything.

[This DUmmie makes it sound like Rush supports an updated Operation Valkyrie.]

Who is financing the right-wing radio pundits? Someone is paying Limbaugh 400 million dollars. I doubt it's goodwill that's behind the effort.

[It couldn't possibly be that the huge popularity of Rush's show is generating tons of ad revenue, could it? It just has to be Karl Rove making those secret payments to Rush.]

Harsh, well-deserved criticism is one thing. Wishing FAILURE upon the Commander in Chief of the U.S. armed forces, and by implication the troops under his command, is quite another. It's no different than saying you wished FDR would fail (in his war against the Nazis or Japan or pulling the country out of the depression)--it implies the failure of him AND his troops/subordinates.

[Another DUmmie with absolutely no sense of self-irony. Failure on the part of Bush is something DUmmies have been ardently wishing for during the past 8 years. Anyone out there think the DUmmies were jubilant when the Iraq surge did NOT fail?]

He spreads doubt as to the legitimacy of the president and undermines military support for our policies. That's a serious problem.

[I remember when the DUmmies were praying for a military coup d'etat against the EVIL Bush regeime.]

Obama is commander in chief of the Armed Forces, and Limbaugh wants him to fail. He has therefore advocated the failure of the U.S. military and is a traitor.

[Under that reasoning ALL DUmmies could have been branded as traitors when Bush was president.]

Limbaugh gets only one hour a day. So does Ed Schultz. NPR gets 6 hours a day.

[GASP! Liberals get 7 hours per day on Armed Forces Radio while conservatives only get an hour? This is intolerable! Remove Rush from Armed Forces Radio!]

Comparing Limbaugh to NPR? Holy shit first of all, Limbaugh is a liar. Acually, he is worse. He is a radical propagandist. He gets away with it because he calls his show "entertainment" You are comparing lemonaid in the park to a brutal rape and murder in the park. Oh they have to be the same because both are in the park !!!

[A DUmmie spouts mindlessly when confronted with the harsh facts about Armed Forces Radio programming.]

i think he should be removed because... hes irrational , egotistical, and full of rage. all three combined tend to be a lil dangerous in my opinion...my sense is that he would do and or say anything in an attempt to glorify himself to the people who actually like him. i keep waiting on him to flee to a compound in the woods somewhere, stock full of guns and ammo. the guy is on the edge of insanity, and drug abuse is only to keep it in check.

[Irrational, egotistical, and full of rage? It sounds like you are describing Randi Rhodes.]

I think AFR programming should reflect the troops' wishes. If they don't want Rush, then kick him off. If they do want him, so be it. We're going to legislate him off all the airways anyways, so it won't matter at all at that point.

[And this edition of the DUmmie FUnnies concludes with a DUmmie revealing their dirty little secret. Removal of Rush from Armed Forces Radio would only be a prelude to their ultimate goal...banning Rush from the airwaves via the "Fairness" Doctrine. Liberals will try to pretend that re-instituting the "Fairness" Doctrinehas nothing to do with Rush but among themselves it is ALL about banning Rush.]

Now that one is just plain scary.

Anybody who wants the unvarnished truth of liberalism - that is nothing but fascism hiding behind empty platitudes - should read DemocraticUnderground.

I cannot believe they can be so ... well, anti-liberal. Do they honestly not see the irony and hypocrisy?

Do they truly not care about the First Amendment?

Just plain scary. I've said it 1000 times: if most Americans knew what liberalism was actually about, no Democrat would ever be elected.

I love their projection. For 8 years, they've been telling us that Bush would do EXACTLY what they want to do.

They'd be hilarious, if they weren't so scary. One of them is now President.

Well, on the plus side, what goes around always comes around. It will be amusing when the Fairness Doctrine eventually finds a target they disagree with.

On/off buttons are on every electrical appliance... don't want to listen to someone... shut radio/tv OFF.

But it's not up to anyone to tell someone else who they can or cannot listen to or watch, e.g. Randi Rhodes, Olbermann would be permanently OFF on my radio/tv...

See lurking DUmmies including Obambi... it's easy

How do the shows get picked for AFR, anyway? I'd imagine that playing what the troops want to listen to would at least be a factor. And I'm pretty sure that a lot of them like Rush.

Anonymous, the Pentagon selects which shows get picked up/broadcast over AFNR (Armed Forces Network Radio). There has been quite a bit of pressure put on the AFN in the past to include so-called 'progressive' programing with the last attempt that I'm aware of being the "The Ed Schultz Show" which was pulled by the Pentagon at the last moment. This was in 2005 and was pushed by Rep. Louise M. Slaughter.

Rush is broadcasted but so is NPR and of COURSE that's not seen by the left as 'balanced' since NPR in their minds at least, is a middle of the roader/mainstream entity.. (Yeah right)

I suspect that with Obama now calling the shots coupled with his already avowed 'war on Limbaugh' already starting, we'll see some major changes in the AFNR lineup shortly and our boys/women in harms way will be subjected to a steady diet of 'progressive' thought and mind-control... Heaven help us all -tm

First amendment? We don't need no stinking First Amendment! We won!

Oh, the irony! DUmmies who spent the last eight years attacking Chimpy's abuse of the Constitution
suddenly discover that it's become irrelevant, a mere piece of paper. But it actually isn't a sudden discovery, the Left has never had any use for free speech for anyone but themselves.

Oh what short memories we all have...

I, troglaman, have been blessed to have been given (h/t to the Shaman Korg) the memory of an elephant. How ironic.

I remember being called a friend to the terrorists. Still happens to this day. I've been accused of treason. I've been told I should be shot. And yet I, troglaman, stand triumphant before you...you bunch of fucking pussies! Jesus Christ. Get the fuck up!

You, smitty, appeal to my inner homo and therefore I must reject you as one of satan's spawn. BEGONE!!!

"The DUmmies want Rush Limbaugh removed from Armed Forces Radio"

So scary. I remember becoming a heroin addict when Donahue was canceled at MSNBC.

DON'T GO THERE!!

So now the next scary thing is about Gitmo detainees who are about to be deposited "in your back yard".

Here's what's really scary - they're already there. The blind guy that first bombed the WTC? Yep. The shoe bomber? Yep. OK City bomber? Yep. Atlanta Olympics bomber? Yep. There's at least a dozen more. You scared about them? I'll bet you are.

Know why? You're good at it.

T-man,

You write like you're still mainlining heroin, apparently you've been nodding off the past twenty years. Donohue was cancelled due to bad ratings, the DUmmies want the government to cancel Limbaugh due to bad political opinions. It's called censorship.

Something that should scare
everyone, even a man wrestling with his inner homo.

And there, my friends, is the Liberal philosophy in it's entirety. If you can't compete; delete!

"The blind guy that first bombed the WTC? Yep. The shoe bomber? Yep. OK City bomber? Yep. Atlanta Olympics bomber? Yep. There's at least a dozen more."

Trog, it's funny that you mentioned the attacks that occurred when we still treated terrorism as a criminal issue and not a military issue, when we took terrorists to court and not to a POW camp.

Since we've been treating terrorists as a military problem and not a criminal one, the attacks have stopped and America is safer from these types of attacks, just as we should be.

I guess being safe is not good enough for you and the rest of the idiot liberals. Why else would you be willing to go back the the old ways where we treated terrorists as criminals and we kept getting attacked, even by our own citizens?

Over 4200 American deaths in Iraq and over 1000 deaths in Afganistan and 10,000 (at least) wounded might put a small dent in this statement. "Attacks" killed and wounded these Americans, ray. Since we've made this a 'military problem', over 5000 Americans have been killed. Over 10000 wounded.

So you're wrong, ray. Wrong. Over 15000 dead and wounded Americans might have issue with being made "safer from these types of attacks". Throw in the WTC victims, we're over 8000 dead and counting. Safer? Sure. I want what you're smoking.
