Media Matters: Pot Calling the Kettle Black

How dare they! How dare they!

I'm a little sensitive when it comes to the radical Left's recent attacks on Rush Limbaugh. To me, Rush has often been a voice of hope and encouragement (him and alot of prayer) during the too often dark days since 9/11, 2001. Through all the rising and falling of fortunes on both sides, he has often managed to point out that the darkness always comes before the dawn, and that America always comes out stronger and freer at the end of the day.

For the Left, I have only pity, who consistently add to the war's burdens by too often voicing the opinions of their more radical base, where they receive much of their funding; the MoveOn, Media Matters, and Daily Kos crowd. All along they have spouted defeatist talking points, such as Howard Dean dividing the country with his antiwar rhetoric in 2004, Jack Murtha calling for "redeployment" from Iraq in 2005, or Harry Reid's more recent and infamous "the war is lost" lament even as our troops gathered to take back the country from the terrorists with the Surge.

The irony of all this, is even while they embolden the terrorists overseas, and empower the Code Pink protesters here at home, they have sustained the war effort by voting for FISA, the Patriot Act, and consistently funding the troops year after year. Thinking they can have it both ways, they prove themselves the true "Neocons" of this era, while still living in the fantasy world that was the anti-war movement of the 1960's, when many, like the Kerry's and the Clinton's, found their own political ideology, only to be disillusioned and proven wrong by the Reagan Revolution and the Fall of the Berlin Wall.

American's aren''t buying the facade of the New Left, nor are the troops accepting the "phony soldier" lie and an apparent unpatriotic Rush Limbaugh, who has consistently proven by word and deed what it really means to Support the Troops.
