I can tell when dicksmith at VetVoice knows when I’m going to hammer him on his double standards – he just copy and pastes VoteVet press releases without comment so I can’t call him dicksmith. But it never works.
Anyway, today’s obvious double standard has to do with, what else, Rush Limbaugh under the title “Sexism Has No Place on AFN” in which some of the VoteVets ‘tards decide that the Armed Forces Network should remove Rush from their airwaves;
Miranda Norman (who is a VoteVets.org Senior Advisor), Kayla Williams, and Robin Eckstein, all Iraq War Veterans, and Katherine Scheirman, former chief of medical operations for the U.S. Air Forces in Europe at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany said the following:
“Rush Limbaugh has a freedom of speech and can say what he wants, but in light of his horribly misogynistic comments, American Forces Radio should no longer give him a platform. Our entire military depends on troops respecting each other – women and men. There simply can be no place on military airwaves for sentiments that would undermine that respect. When many of our female troops use birth control, for Limbaugh to say they are “sluts” and “prostitutes” is beyond the pale. It isn’t just disrespectful to our women serving our country, but it’s language that goes against everything that makes our military work. Again, we swore to uphold our Constitution, including the freedom of speech, and would not take that away from anyone – even Limbaugh. But that does not mean AFN should broadcast him. In fact, it shouldn’t.”
So I looked up the AFN radio programming and look what I found…notice the name following Rush’s name at the 2100 slot;
It’s Ed Schultz who last May called Laura Ingraham a “slut”. Using all of my Google-fu skills and try as I might, I couldn’t find a call from VetVoice or VoteVets’, “three female Iraq war veterans” regarding Schultz “in light of his horribly misogynistic comments, American Forces Radio should no longer give him a platform.”
Same word, different guys, the only thing separating them, besides the size of their listening audience, and their respective talents, is their politics. So, you take away from this posting what you want, but to me it looks like VoteVets isn’t all that “nonpartisan” that they claim in the last line of that piece. I’m just guessing.
Thanks to TSO.
