This was my response back to them:

I was very saddened to receive an email telling me you removed a video I uploaded... You did not tell me why, just a vague reference that it was flagged by members as being inappropriate. Did you read the comments on that particular video? The negative ones were all Rush Limbaugh supporters but there were many positive ones also.  I know it is your server and you can do as you please with any video but it sure seems unfair that members can flag a video that doesn't agree with their ideology as inappropriate and thus its removed, without rebuttal.  Sad but true fact of life in what we think is a democracy. Thanks, thinkingblue

If you click this linkon liveleak there is a remake of the Rush Limbaugh phony soldiers video. The only changes I made were the pictures. The original film had images of the devastation of war, on all people involved, the men, women and children caught in the horrors of war. If you are interested in the original video that was removed from YOUTUBE click this link  http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=66a_1193582160

Rush Limbaugh cares more about the troops than most people care about there Children.
Dem's are two faced hypocrites who are only for choice if they agree with you. If not then they smear you. Never fails and if you can't see this your blind with a closed mind.

rush is a draft dodger so saying he supports the milatery is an oxymoron
killinghours (3 weeks ago)
So if you make a mistake in your lifetime... you should always be persecuted for it? I robbed a store when I was younger... did my time, payed for the damages but since I did that... I guess I'm ALWAYS going to be a person to watch for. Even though I live a Christian lifestyle now and walk the straight and narrow.
MontySlab (3 weeks ago)
If any fucking Right Wing idiot mentions ABC's Phoney Soliders story I will kill them personally. ABC's story was about men and women who NEVER SERVED IN THE MILITARY BUT CLAIMED FAKE HONORS; Rush called REAL SOILDERS who fight and die in Bush's illegal war PHONEY. If you right wingers can't understand the difference we REALLY DO NEED TO KILL YOU ALL TO SAVE AMERICA.

cupera1 (3 weeks ago)
The olny phoney solider that Rush was refering to was Jess MacBeth. If media maters slams Rush the must slam ABC for the same thing
tropic16 (3 weeks ago)
Why all the anger? Has a nerve been struck? Are you telling me that MacBeth is not a phony? PS: everyone knows by listening that the 1st caller was never a republican - he had to lie... he, like all libs, just could not help himself.

Reply back and I'll give you my address. I pray that you have balls to backup your wild dumbass left wing ideas. Bring your punkass to my doorstep with that crap and I promise you, you won't have to worry about the country anymore after that. Look forward to hearing from the "True" Hate Monger. Let me guess.. liberal are ya?
Pawnthief (3 weeks ago)
The Caller said They (the media) never talk to real soldiers. They elect to pull these soldiers that come up out of the blue. Rush then responded "The phony soldiers". MacBeth was never mentioned. It was clear that he thought real soldiers support the war, phony soldiers do not.
Will somebody please help me find an honest Republican?!?
Prove me wrong if you can. I won't hold my breath waiting.

Reid and other liberals support those phony soldiers Limbaugh was talking about, like Jesse Macbeth and Jimmy Massey.
emkimmel (3 weeks ago)
Reid and us liberals support all of the troops. And we respect them enought to only want to risk their lives when the it will protect the country. Even General Petreaus could say with confidence that the nation is safer because of their sacrifice; bring them home.

good video besides the fact it couldn't be farther from the truth
stellablue (3 weeks ago)
I have one thing to say to poor baby Limbaugh: "If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen."

Rush, hate to break it to you, but you about washed up. But maybe I don't need to break it to you. That might explain your behavior here.
binarydirector (3 weeks ago)
"He ate his hotdog with relish. "
It could mean he ate it with a condiment made up of diced pickles.
It could mean he ate it with "gusto."
Words only mean things, in context. And if the context is hazy, the meaning is lost.
Rush has never attacked the military.
The Democrats . . . well, why go there.
Apparently, they saw an opportunity to create a firestorm, and they took it.
It's just a political fight by a party that claims it doesn't like to fight.
emkimmel (3 weeks ago)
The context was that when discussing ads featuring soldiers who oppose the war, Rus said T H E Y always use PHONEY SOLDIERS instead of REAL SOLDIERS who agree with him. Nobody can be fooled into believing that he was only speaking of one particular soldier; but the people who lied us into this war can say anything they want, their right to do so being protected by the ACLU.

About that Rush comment, it offends me to the point of wanting to push in his face and tear out his eyes..

I am speaking, of course, about my daughter who is in Iraq right now (third time), who is a liberal democrat, who opposes the war, yet does her job regardless, who has earned two bronze stars and seven distinguished service citations for her performance. "Phoney soldier" indeed.

I think you can well understand my rage over this remark.
lewti27 (3 weeks ago)
All i have to say is Rush is a PHONEY AMERICAN !!!!! He should just retire. No soldier is phoney no matter what they say. They signed up to let people like FAT Boy rush talk everyday. I say the soldiers can say anything they damn well want to. Question their talking points, but do not question their service to your country.
caddius (3 weeks ago)
You guys are sheep! Anyone who actually listens to Rush knows this is all a cooked up lie that is being fed to you and you just eat it up. He was NOT talking about actual military, he was talking about the liars, actually PHONY SOLDIERS, he was NOT talking about ANYONE who was actually in the military.

But it's good to know that the left has finally drummed up a few actual soldiers to lean on and not rely on the liars. Stop being sheep. Find something with some merit to rip about.
TheMrE (3 weeks ago)
Caddius: What do you mean by "anyone who actually listens to Rush knows this is all a cooked up lie". The audio is out there for eveybody to listen. In context! You can check the transcript all you want (Rush's website actually CUT more than 2 minutes from it to TAKE IT out of context! Which proves he knows he messed up and had to COVER IT.)

You can't simple point and say this is all cooked up without anything to back it up. He put his foot in his mouth. He should at least say that!
caddius (3 weeks ago)
You have been fed and are regurgitating what the left media are saying. I have listened to Rush for more than 15 years and he has never said anything negative to the military. Have you actually ever listened to those 2 minutes? I know what is in it, and you obviously don't. It isn't Rush who has cut off everything after the phony soldiers remark to slant it for them. Rush was speaking about actual false soldiers the Left put so much faith into.
Lawtek712 (3 weeks ago)
Rush Limpbauh needs to be removed from the airways. His unbelievable arrogance has been polluting the airways for far too long now and it is about time we, as a society, put an end to his behavior.
cupera1 (3 weeks ago)
That is the whole point of Media Maters is to silence any and all opposition to the left. MM is willing to do or say any lie to get rid of any one that oppose the libs.
PigVomit100 (3 weeks ago)
Yea... they control the media and remove voices of descent in totalitarian countries also. If he was such a menace then why is he so popular? Why is liberal talk radio such a failure? I suppose you support the fairness doctrine to force media companies to put on air liberal voices. This is stalinism.
tangoseven2 (3 weeks ago)
right on brother..right on!!!
Lawtek712 (3 weeks ago)
The reason that Rush is popular is because of political objectives. Look at the fashion industry for example: Fashion companies determine what will be in fashion and the common public purchases items based on per-determined criteria. The same theory holds true to much of what we hear and see in America. Political power is something that cannot be underestimated. Rush is just another problem that we, as a society, have to over come.
12patriot12 (3 weeks ago)
Rush is not "popular" in the over-all grand scheme of things. Neither is FAUX News. That is an illusion they project. Creating a reality. An attempt to make themselves more important than they really are. The percentage of the over-all population who actually listen to, or watch, right-wing based programming is minute. Something like 3%, or less. Those who do are well organized and dedicated.
Ralphdraw3 (3 weeks ago)
Great video - starts a little slow but that clip of Rush blowing a gasket with his caller is wonderful. Rush stutters, uuhh, ummm, gets the caller's name wrong, starts yelling, can't answer his questions.. etc.

Jon Jon Jon..... Rush is not the enemy, the current congress is trying its best to derail any momentum or chances of winning the war....they have bet the entire democratic party on losing this war. War entered into by the USA should be fought to win; not lose, like congress wants....that is why Congress has the LOWEST approval rating ever of 11%. That is the real problem today !!!
12patriot12 (3 weeks ago)
That is what people like YOU want Congress to think. Congress has an extremely low approval rating because they were swept in with a mandate to do something about this administration, the "war", and the tramppling of our Constitution.
dmgstuff (3 weeks ago)
They were NOT swept into anything, they promised their party that they could and would pull out of the war. That is how they got into power, now they can not perform and they do not have the balls to STOP funding the war, which they could but don't. Quit making excuses, how about taking time to think about how to WIN this war instead of how to lose it !!
andrew0169420 (3 weeks ago)
tell what there is to win there. how many Americans have to die to make this a win? how many Iraqi's have to die for your win? and how long is it going to take to do this? and if you really want to help win join the armed forces.
VoodooMagicMan (3 weeks ago)
About twice as much as we have now.
dmgstuff (3 weeks ago)
Andrew, I can't educate you in a couple sentences. But, I will leave you with this... research our war history, then tell me one war in our history, that you could predict everything about the war, before it played out. It's not a game it is a war !! And we have the ability to win IF we want to. So it will take as long as it takes, more time and deaths with the democrats trying to lose the war. But we will not allow it, and we will win with or without you liberals.
12patriot12 (3 weeks ago)
I guess seventy-something percent of us REGULAR Americans are liberals. It is the heated rhetoric and playing politics with EVERYTHING by people like Rush which has undermined the war effort. Calling average Americans un-American, alienating your own Republicans, all because they ask valid questions. YOU undermine the effort, by seeking to divide us as a nation. At a time when we should all join together.
dmgstuff (3 weeks ago)
What question are you raising that is SO valid that is being ignored? Your response IS pure rhetoric! Go ahead and KEEP believing what you believe, just remember this chat in 2009. The republican party is the party of solutions. Unlike democrates they have NO solutions they just HATE!
12patriot12 (3 weeks ago)
The strategy of trying to shame people into supporting this "war", by calling people un-American and un-patriotic, backfired. It had a negative effect. Not only did people decide to not support the effort, they became angry.
12patriot12 (3 weeks ago)
dmgstuff: I have a solution. We can put politics aside and call upon someone to run for President who will put the Comstitution first. Someone who is willing to open everything up for us. Someone on a mission to expose any and all wrong-doing, misuse, of secret govt. agencies, irregardless of ANYONE'S legacy. Let the chips fall where they may.
andrew0169420 (3 weeks ago)
sorry for my inability to write. but your right I don't think that you can tell me when its going to end or how many more have to die. but I can site one great war that one of your super smart conservatives came up with and is still being lost every day and happens to be the war on drugs (thank you for wasting my tax dollars Mr. Regan) do you think that Iraq is going to be won like that war is so clearly being won???
12patriot12 (3 weeks ago)
What is patriotism? I think patriotism means putting our Constitution before anything else. Before money, power, politics, and religion. For example: If you place your religious beliefs before our Constitution you are not patriotic, you are religious. You use the freedoms granted by our Constitution to promote those beliefs. And conveniently support our Constitution when it suits you and ignore it when it does not suit you.
VoodooMagicMan (3 weeks ago)

Will we get attacked by terrorists if we stop attacking?
would terrorist have attacked again by now if we hadn't attacked?

all of a sudden we are the leaders of the free world... shit... the world is pretty big, i can name a few other peace enjoying countries right now if i had to. how come we didn't give a a shit about Iraq before 911? we didn't worry about Saddam for shit, i had never in my life heard of Osama Bin Laden, all of a sudden we are the supper fucking heroes of the free world?
estgar1 (3 weeks ago)
let me ask everyone this... why did we wait so long to do anything about terrorism if we really did care that much? why only after 911? because we didn't give a shit and thats the truth.and we still don't, we care a lot about oil and we only needed one reason to go and get our hands on it.
estgar1 (3 weeks ago)
how long must be keep our soldiers there? how many more have to die? how do you win a war against a belief, a way of life, a religion? is every single person shooting back in Iraq really a terrorist? wouldn't you shoot back at some one who just shelled your home or your whole town if you had a gun? if one of your loved ones was killed during invasion? i would... we devastated the country, clean water and food is hard to obtain, the country has been thrown into chaos, and we expect to be loved?

Jesse Al-Zaid, aka Jesse MacBeth is just the latest Democrat dog-whore. Like Cindy Sheehan nefore him, the Dems throw their dog-whores on their knees and attempt to mount them from the behind (even while lacking the necessary man-tools with which to effect such an act). Jesse should have a sex change in hopes of becoming a real man. With a penis and balls added, he could live a happy live in San Francisco as a gay man.

Why not just have a war on Fascism, in general? Why is it narrowed down to just "Islamo-fascists"? We had a war on Communism for fifty years. Fascism is the obvious threat to democracy. Religion is just a tool used by fascists who seek to spread fascism. Fascism is our enemy.

thank you for clearing it up. everybody is focusing on "phoney soldiers" but the key words actually come from the caller.

How can Rush support the war so much and not have the balls to go fight in it himself?
So this draft dodging coward is calling Republican, conservative, American Military Veterans "phony soldiers" because WE don't agree with the continued support for military action in Iraq? It confounds me how this fucking moron has a radio audience...proof of the abject failure of our educational institutions...it's sad that his groupies have apparently lost all sense of critical thinking.

No he wasn't talking about the "troops" in general, he was talking about "phony troop members". In other words, if you are serving your country but disagree with the Bush Administration, the war, or if you speak out against the war, then you are considered, by Rush, to be a phony soldier. Rush can try and spin this any way he wants, but the truth is out. We live in a digital society where it is all too easy to replay a statement. Rush's reference was "plural", and he said; "soldiers".

A story exposing people who CLAIMED that our troops were killing innocent ppl. People who were later found to have never even BEEN to Iraq. Specifically a kid named Jesse McBeth. Born Jesse Al Zaid..(CONTINUED)

(CONTINUED)Jesse Mcbeth claimed that he was an army ranger..recieved a purple heart..claimed he witnessed our troops hanging children from rafters in mosques. Jesse Al Zaid never went to Iraq. Jesse Al Zaid washed out of boot camp after 44 days. Jesse Al Zaid will be serving 5 months in jail for claiming these PHONY STATEMENTS..THAT IS WHAT RUSH SAID. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT, LIBS. It had nothing to do with anti-war soldiers in general.

another reason to pull soldiers out of iraq is to stop the flood of money being poured into this war. the canadian dollar has surpassed the us dollar and if things keep going this way we'll be neck and neck with peso. maybe that will fix imagration. we will all be headed south. learn spanish

What part of Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 do you repugs not get?
cupera1 (2 weeks ago)
Except for the millions in support and training bases for terrorist that Saddam supplied. AQ was in Iraq for years before 911. When Afghanistan got too hot for them they went to the next friendliest country, Iraq.

Even Bush has admitted that Iraq had nothign to do with 9/11.

The Taliban also had nothing to do with 911 except give the terrorist a safe place to train and financial support.

It was not in this case of Jesse MacBeth. The phoney solider smear was a contrived smear that media maters made up to try and take away free speach for talk raido.

the guy that posted this video is an idiot bill clinton is a draft dodger so how can this guy say anything about rush not wearing a uniform? also, i like how the video was edited to leave out the rest of the conversation about the "phoney soldier" who was convicted for falsifying army documents. he was kicked out of boot camp after 44 days and never served over seas or witnessed the lies he told.

You Republicans should know a draft dodger when you see one! Where was GW in 72-73? know one knows! He was AWOL!!!

This whole commentary thread started on the basis of a distorted lie about Rush Limbaugh. Now the congressional document sent to his broadcaster smearing a private citizen from the US government is up to $30,000 in bidding with the funds going to children of fallen soldiers, a charity Rush has supported for years. Thank you liberals! Thank you!

Watch General Sanchez! Rush will don you with the dreaded "cloak of treason" that he ..with ease cast upon any military member that realizes the disaster that is the Iraq invasion....Why would the words of a decorated General of thirty plus years mean anything to Rush Limbaugh? Who is the authority here?...Rush! Of Course! His extensive background in international studies at...wait, Rush didn't go to college.
redmark2007 (1 week ago)
Well, I'm sure his years of reading Marvel comics and being a sports announcer more than compensates...So, which label will he pull out of his "Rushies little book of labels"? Maybe, "Commie lover, Lib., Wacko, Nutto, Truther, betrayer of soldiers, Taliban leader, etc." I'll be tuning in next week Rush! Can hardly wait!

Thank you Druggie Rush for exposing the far right for what they are. Anti-Americans. period. I hope one of those "phoney soldiers" comes up to you and gives you a phoney punch in the mouth.

Once again the GOOFY LEFT spins it's lies. Try hearing what he was talking about. Some Phoney Soldier (Jesse MacBeth) a shame to any military person. YOU Dems put up some the anti war movement person that never served 40 days in the military.
Where was GOOFY Harry Reid on the General Betraous MoveOn BULLCRAP? Oh, That's free speech.

Thanks for allowing comments. There are republicans with vids, one is Schemefighter, another is Bosphotoman and others who either must approve comments or just delete the ones they don't like, hmmm wonder why that is.
Maybe they, like faux news, want to filter the truth. Limbaugh is a drug addicted POS, chickenhawk like most republicans.
PS: Kerry was right about the war crimes in NAM. Bring back the draft and watch these snakes slither back under a rock.

Rush was referring to phoney soldiers like Jesse Macbeth who lied about being in the Army and told BS stories about attrocities. He was not referring to real soldiers who disagree with the war.

M.Kaplan said it well:
The harpies of hate -- the Coulters, the Limbaughs, the O'Reillys -- spew bile, but the free marketplace of ideas beloved of Jefferson and Madison is incapable of marginalizing them, because Satan is vastly more entertaining than Socrates.

Context is all important. Manipulating ideas implement deception. In context, the 'phony soldier' comment was about just such an attempt. Out of context smears is exactly why the Harry Reid's smear letter went for sale for over 2 million dollars.
ojspal (1 week ago)
This is pure liberal trash. Editing a loop of video to make Rush look like he's an epileptic? Nice trick. Liberals want us to lose a war to terrorists, and they'll tell any lies necessary to make that happen.

A big thanks from Rush to you lemmings...
Limbaugh never hides the fact he speaks for the upper-class white racists of the U.S.& they love him for it. LIMBAUGH SAYS: (The) reasons (why liberals want to go into Darfar) What color is the skin of people in Darfur?: It's black.. who do Dems really need to keep voting for them? CALLER: black population. (Limbaugh, is once again tackling the nonexistent racial issues to help make Repubs feel better about fearing and hating black people.)

How could one believe that most of the Soldiers today do not support the "failed policy". If you joined up for the military since 2003, you know you are going to Iraq/Afghan at some point...then how would say you don't support it? Why would you sign up? He was referring to people like Macbeth. I also like how the maker of the video points out that Rush never served time, of course neither did the CiC Bill Clinton

If the liberals are so concerned about attacks on our soldiers, then why don't they care about the fallout that these "fake soldiers" cause to our soldiers in the field? The fraudulent claims of war atrocities is being used to inspire terrorism that is killing many soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. I'll tell you why, because the phony soldiers like Macbeth were poster children for liberals to attack the attempt to bring world peace. The liberals also smeared General Petraeus

##****It's really sad that these liberals smear our troops with false war atrocity accusations as campaign fraud. And try to blame Rush Limbaugh for disrespecting our troops, when in fact he is defending them and a longtime supporter.
PhonySoldier (4 days ago)
##****The real phony soldiers should be put in prison. The liberals that are slandering Rush Limbaugh should be imprisoned for slander and defamation. Its real bad that liberal smear groups are fabricating war atrocities to for political and financial gain. John Kerry should be prosecuted for perjury and treason.

Slander is a civil matter. You don't incarcerate people over words.
PhonySoldier (4 days ago)
##****Rush Limbaugh was obviously talking about Jesse Macbeth or other fraudulently phony soldiers like the criminal investigation & prosecutions & sentencing like in "Operation Stolen Valor" or New Jersey Democrat mayor Bob Levy. Or phony soldiers like untouchable John Kerry that apparently also exaggerated has service record and fabricated war atrocities for political and financial gain.

franksnberries: You're trying to dodge the issue with straw arguments. What I posted was the truth. Rush is right, he is being slandered for exposing the liberal phony soldiers that are faking war atrocities, which is inspiring terrorism against our soldiers and country. Wake up and smell the coffee and get a life. You're just a mind numbed liberal deadhead on a witch hunt.

franksnberries: "You don't incarcerate people over words."

Start being honest for a change. People are frequently incarcerated over words, such as perjury. In many countries like North Korea that doesn't have free speech you can be imprisoned or executed just for expressing an opposing view or criticism. I suspect like most crimes it can be prosecuted criminally and or civilly. Considering it is a smear campaign that is essentially election fraud

PhoneySoldier: I see two separate points here. One, that phoney soldiers such as McBeth should be considered by society for what they are, liars. The second point, is that Rush, and those that defend him in this phoney soldier deal, are intellectually dishonest...or ignoramuses. The beginning is obvious to anyone that understands 6th grade English....
redmark2007 (2 days ago)
Phoneysoldier(con): an easy inference to be drawn from Rush's conversation with Mike from Chicago.."you must be a democrat",,Mike is phoney "you can't be a republican",,Mike is a Phoney " Mike says he a military veteran,.conservative...Rush replies "yeah, and I walked on the moon"..does this sound like the rational, reason loving Rush Limbaugh that we all have grown to love and worship?
redmark2007 (2 days ago)
Phoneysoldier(con): I believe that Rush is shirking his duties as a revered Mega-Dittoe-Head and not being honest again (his junkie life, his draft-dodging ,etc). Really, is there a walking, thinking American that believes that Democrats want to lose the war? That want the IslamoFascists to kill us? Come on people...grow up and think this through before you subscribe to your next EIB newsletter!

The lies these phony soldiers told are smearing our real soldiers & country & getting our real soldiers killed. The liberals have been using phony soldiers like Jesse Macbeth & John Kerry that fake war atrocities to try to force a withdrawal & slander & smear campaign to try to steal the election. Liberal lies are aiding & abetting terrorism and murdering coalition soldiers and innocent civilians.
