"Ass Cysts" Limbaugh Attacks Vet, Calls For Radical Shift In U.S. Military Policy


ORIGINAL

by David Sirota

Sometimes you just have to just laugh at Rush Limbaugh. Here's a guy who dodged the Vietnam War draft by citing a cyst on his ass (no joke), and yet who accuses Vietnam War heroes essentially of treason. Today, Limbaugh's attack is on Sen. John Kerry (D-MA). You remember him – he's that guy who actually went over and served in Vietnam, while Limbaugh sat home, dropped his pants, and pointed his draft board to a cyst on his own ass in order to avoid serving his country.

Limbaugh is actually claiming that Kerry called American troops terrorists this weekend on CBS. Boy that would be real bad...if it were even close to true. So let's go to the transcript, shall we, to see if old Rush "Ass Cyst" Limbaugh is telling us the truth:

KERRY:...There is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children...

Yes, that's right – Limbaugh and other right-wing outfits claim that means Kerry is calling American soldiers terrorists. Clearly he's not – he said "there is no reason" for them to be required to do that as the war intensifies. He went on to say that it is time for the Iraqis to enforce their own security.

And that begs a question: does Ass Cyst Limbaugh – the same guy who avoided combat – actually WANT American troops to start "going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children?" Because that's what he is actually endorsing. I don't know about you, but I'd bet military commanders in the field would think that's a bad idea.

Actually, we don't have to bet - we can just look at the record and see that yes, top military commanders agree with Kerry - not with Ass Cyst Limbaugh. For instance, back in 2003, the UK Guardian reported that Lieutenant General Ricardo Sanchez, head of the allied forces in Iraq, "said the US had decided to revise its strategy and limit the scope of raids after being warned they were alienating the public." He said, "It was a fact that I started to get multiple indicators that maybe our iron-fisted approach to the conduct of ops was beginning to alienate Iraqis. I started to get those sensings from multiple sources, all the way from the governing council down to average people."

Earlier this year, the Washington Post reported that the U.S. military was rightly questioning its own raid strategy – as Kerry alluded to – because:

"The raids turn up little and leave hard feelings among civilians who resent foreign soldiers bursting into their homes, breaking doors and gates and pointing guns at their heads. They resent these men catching their wives and daughters in their bedclothes. They resent them barking orders, telling them to get on the ground, invading their homes, emptying drawers and turning over mattresses."

So let's be clear: what Ass Cyst Limbaugh is doing is both lying about Kerry, and frontally endorsing a radical change in U.S. military policy whereby our soldiers actually do start terrorizing people. He is doing this, even as our own military says that would be a mistake.

But then, Ass Cyst Limbaugh always talks with such confidence that maybe we should call him Sgt. Ass Cyst Limbaugh, issue him a weapon, put him in uniform, and send him over to actually implement his new house-to-house urban combat raid strategy. He seems so excited and supportive of it – and so determined to have the U.S. military commanders adopt his ideas - I'll bet he's ready to go serve his country, right?

Don't hold your breath - you can bet if we tried that, he'd simply start crying in fear, beg for mercy, and then desperately show us his ass.

you are seriously misguided ... you include the transcript that shows CLEARLY that Kerry says "there is no reason that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children..."

yet you follow up by turning the statement into: "there is no reason that young American soldiers should be required (or ordered) to go into the homes ..."

you then say, "And that begs a question: does Ass Cyst Limbaugh – the same guy who avoided combat – actually WANT American troops to start "going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children?" Because that's what he is actually endorsing." you could not be more wrong.

first off, if you had any knowledge of proper grammar, you'd know it is "raises the question" not "begs the question" ... second off, his name is Rush, not Ass Cyst ... third off, by accusing Kerry of calling American troops terrorists, he is not saying that he wants them to commit acts of terrorism, he is saying that he believes Kerry is lying or that he doesn't believe what is being done constitutes terrorism or terrorizing ...

do you not see how your slippery slope of lies and disillusionment lead you to such hair-brained theories and interpretations?! well here's a new task: instead of trying to denigrate everything conservatives believe, go to the corner store and buy yourself a clue ... or just sit there and continue to be a moron

Not "Junkie" Rush Limbaugh???

This guy has the audacity to JUSTIFY on his "Talk Radio show" the Gestapo tactics of the DEA against terminally ill patients and their doctors for using a common weed to ease pain and suffering while all the while having his own monkey on his back . .. of course those were FDA approved pharmaceuticals Rush is/was addicted to, so that still makes him a "Good American", right? (Hey, kidz, spot the Patriarchal Fascist "Double Standard"???) . . .;-)

Of course, I am sure "Gawd" didn't mean hemp when "Gawd" told Adam "And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat." (Genesis 1:29) Plus, according to Rush, all those sick people were "BAD Americans" and deserved what they got.

And who the hell did George Washington think he was when he said, "Make the most you can of the Hemp Seed and sow it everywhere"??? I am sure Rush would have a thing or two to say about this "anti-authority revolutionary" and his "UN-American" values. ;-)

Yup, old "Cyst Butt" Limbaugh will definitely be remembered by history as the great Bastion of Integrity that championed our Great Society in its time of crisis. . . I think we should erect a monument to his greatness. . . for pigeons to crap on for centuries to come!!!!

"If he had been a soldier man
Shooting gooks in Vietnam
If he was the CIA
Selling dope and making hay
He'd be free, they'd let him be
Breathing air, like you and me
They gave me ten for two
What more can the judges do?
Gotta, gotta....gottta set him freee."
- John Sinclair by John Lennon

peace.
