Rush: Gives “Aid And Comfort” To Our Enemies

FlagBolivarDuring the 2004 Presidential campaign, we heard a lot from the conservative movement about, “If you’re against the war, you’re against the troops,” thereby meaning that you also supported “the terrorist” and were un-American.

Boy how a short few years have changed their (conservatives) views.

I must admit to being somewhat shocked at yesterday’s news that President Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize, but I also felt pride and honor as an American. The world has not thought well of our Country these last 8 years and it’s gratifying to see a shift toward us as a Nation and as a World Leader.

This shift was also evident at last months meeting of the UN and the leaders of other nations comments directed towards America. With President Obama’s Administration there has been an obvious, for the better, world shift in opinion of the United States.

With a shift in world opinion has come a shift on the home front and the conservatives attacking all things connected with President Obama and national pride.

The right wing media gleefully sang a song of triumph when Chicago, and America, lost the bid for the 2016 Olympics and then again with the Nobel Peace Prize announcement.

Joe Scarborough started the “anti-America” routine at 6 am with “That’s ridiculous” and it rolled through the conservative Fox News “Goebbels” propaganda machine all day until finally Rush Limbaugh added the “coup de gras.”

I think that everybody is laughing. Our president is a worldwide joke. Folks, do you realize something has happened here that we all agree with the Taliban and Iran about and that is he doesn’t deserve the award. Now that’s hilarious, that I’m on the same side of something with the Taliban, and that we all are on the same side as the Taliban.

So with the final media hammer, Limbaugh, we have the conservative movement supporting the Taliban, Iran and our terrorist enemies.

Where is Rush’s voice “If you don’t support the troops you’re against America?” His comment can not be interpreted any way other than he doesn’t support our forces in “harms way.”

Has the far right media given “aid and comfort” to the Taliban, Iran and terrorist around the world?

AID AND COMFORT – The U.S. Constitution, Article VIII, Section III, declares, that adhering to the enemies of the United States, giving them aid and comfort, shall be treason.

These words, as they are to be understood in the constitution, have not received a full judicial construction. They import, however, help, support, assistance, countenance, encouragement.

I think Rush’s own statement of “…and that we are on the same side as the Taliban” answers the question of his support for the terrorist and against our fighting forces.

To Rush and the other “Goebbelites” from the conservative movement, “Love it or leave it!”

    If you’re going to criticize Rush, at least go a step beyond simply cutting and pasting talking points from Media Matters and other paid for propagandists.

    Also ironic that you’re now advocating exactly the same position (dissent is treason) that you just a few years ago vehemently disagreed with. See, if you were actually enlightened, if you really were a fair person – you’d clearly state that Limbaugh has ever right to disagree. But instead you just adopt his position when it suits you, and when the administration changes parties again, your positions will be yet again reversed. You are absolutely no better than him.

    And don’t give me some BS argument about how you’re “just putting them up to their own standards” if we did that then there’d be no standards in politics whatsoever because its always the case that the last party was on the opposite side of whatever inane argument we’re having today (eg. during Clinton’s term Democrats were arguing Rush Limbaugh didn’t support the troops when he was against involvement in Somalia, a few years later positions were reversed).
