Phony Soldiers and Phony Senators

Phony Soldiers and Phony Senators
By John E. O'Neill--FPM

Recently, at least 41 Democratic Senators, joined by a howling mob including George Soros’ Media Matters, sought to silence Rush Limbaugh because of his reference to “phony” anti war soldiers. Limbaugh’s comments, taken in context, referred to Jesse Macbeth, a confessed and convicted phony, whose faked but graphic war crimes confessions received far wider media notice than his later confession.

He had been discharged in boot camp after 40 days of service. Macbeth follows a grand tradition of fake soldiers whose “war crimes” confessions have been used by the Left to slander the service of our troops.

For example, Micah Ian Wright, author of the 2003 anti war best seller "You Back the Attack," was an Army Ranger and Combat veteran feted at USC’s Annenberg School and in media like the Washington Post until he was finally “outed” as a complete fake. Many similar examples of phony “soldiers” used by the Left for war crimes confessions are documented in B.G. Burkett’s bestseller Stolen Valor.

You know what REALLY burns the left's collective ass? They can't get away with this kind of slander anymore. Rush and the Swifties expose their sorry dissembling ways. The left claims to "love the troops, but hate the mission."

They sure do have a funny way of showing it.

The Burkett book is excellent and the left has a habit of promoting fake veterans

"...tradition of fake soldiers..."
The men who faked their military service deserved to be called fake. They did nothing good for their country; they hurt the country that they say they loved. To be a lie is not love!

We have military men in our family. These are men who served with honor for our country. They are men that our family is proud of.
