Senator Demands Limbaugh Be Dropped from Armed Forces Network
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 10 March 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 03/11/2012 10:24:58 AM PDT by John Semmens

Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich) demanded that the Armed Forces Network stop carrying Rush Limbaugh’s show. “Our troops shouldn’t be exposed to the barrage of criticism of their Commander-in-Chief that is spewed out by Limbaugh on a daily basis,” Levin said. “It foments disobedience and disloyalty.”

As evidence, Levin cited Marine Sergeant Gary Stein’s Facebook page called Armed Forces Tea Party Patriots. “The Tea Party is a threat to our government,” Levin maintained. “Men like Sergeant Stein may be called upon to suppress this threat. Yet, this Facebook page raises serious questions about where his loyalties may be.”

The Senator specifically took issue with Stein’s call for fellow armed service members to refuse to follow unlawful orders. “How is some grunt or jarhead supposed to know which orders are unlawful?” Levin asked. “We can’t have individual soldiers making up their own minds. They just need to obey their superiors.”

Levin was unmoved by the argument that Nazi troops who committed atrocities in World War II professed to be “just following orders.” “In war both sides engage in questionable deeds,” Levin observed. “Winners get to write the post-war rules and history. Losers can be made to pay for their crimes. The only thing our troops should be thinking about is how to make sure they are on the winning side when it’s all over.”

Leftists coming right out and saying they want to use the military against those supporting the constitution.

Barrage of criticism well deserved. obama is creating the criticism by his actions and the troops are smart enough to see it. He is an failure in all he does.

They trashed Bush every chance they got and he was re-elected. The hypocrisy is amazing.

Ok I was distracted and didn’t read the post.

No need to comments on it. Just goes to show how close reality is to what was once satirical.

Yep. We’re through the looking glass now. Knock off all that “rational thought” crap before there’s a knock on the door.

There will be such an audible sigh of relief from our military when this impostor is deposed, it will be deafening.

Levin is pandering to the Daily Kos left, who DESPERATELy want Rush gone.

I find it AMAZING how much power one website full of nutjobs, and insane whackos has on the Democrat Party.

To Continue, it’s called “Operation Flush Rush, From Armed Forces Radio”, which, i’m sure almost NONE of the Daily Kos clowns have ever heard.

Unfortunately these days, with marxist commies like Carl Levin in Congress, satire isn’t funny anymore.

Oh Levin, you’re such a hypocrite. You’ve got liberal Dems saying worse things about Republicans every day. You may not like it, but it’s called free speech.

Hey, John, you had me going there for a minute, being as how it is not unconceivable that Levin would actually say such things.

Satire is becoming almost undistinguishable from reality.

Good one.

Disloyalty to a red diaper doper baby Marxist who rammed open homosexuality into the US military ranks?

And it's Rush who made them "disloyal" to America?

What of the Congress critters who called our troops war criminals before trial?

Screw these commie bastards.

John, looks like you’ve listened to Michigan’s Senator a few times. Sure sounds like a quote he would say.

At least this is something he would think.
