Democrats Are Unbelievable Liars

by Neely Tucker - October 20th, 2007 - Washington Post

"Limbaugh Spins Reid's Letter Into Charity Gold"

The letter in question is an Oct. 2 two-pager from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to Clear Channel Communications CEO Mark Mays lambasting the syndicate's Rush Limbaugh, who had recently criticized U.S. troops who were against the war in Iraq.

Neely Tucker, you are a liar! Or as Power Line interprets it here, you are at the least a "phony reporter". You just repeated in your article the LIE that Harry Reid originally made against Limbaugh in the letter at the center of this controversy. The actual statement by Limbaugh (published widely in newspapers and on the Internet and therefore not reasonably distorted into the belief Tucker states - see below for links) clearly indicates he was NOT talking about U.S. troops who are against the war. He was talking about a specific gentleman WHO NEVER SERVED IN IRAQ and was not a veteran, but who lied and claimed he had gotten a purple heart in Iraq. You cannot claim to be a journalist and get something this wrong.

To equate Limbaugh's criticism of this one man with a claim it was criticism of troops who have served is not reasonable or honest. It is a LIE. Having been caught in a lie, Democrats act like if they just keep repeating the LIE it becomes true. That is what Neely Tucker is doing in his article. It is the major reason there is no longer any reasonable possibility of having a civil dialog with Democrats in America. Democrats claim Ann Coulter is beyond the pale. Coulter has never done anything as despicable as Harry Reid did here, and Democrats don't care!

Truth is truth. Lies are lies. It was the Democrats who believed they had a right to their own truth 150 years ago when they tried to claim that secession was a state's right. 500,000 Americans died in the resulting civil war over the Democrat belief that they could have their own version of truth. The truth they proclaimed then was that black people were not the equal of whites and slavery was their proper role in society. To end the Democrat lie about slavery nearly tore this country apart.

No one with any brains can believe anyone who is a Democrat about anything they say simply because they LIE and then pretend they haven't LIED. Since arrogantly lying is once again standard practice for Democrats, how can we communicate?

For those who would like to see more of the details of this controversy, here are links to the Media Matters attack on Limbaugh that started the controversy and a link to Rush Limbaugh's transcript of his show which includes the discussion of his views on "phony soldiers" and one specific soldier, Jesse MacBeth.

First the Media Matters article with the heavily edited version of what they claim Limbaugh said:

Now Limbaughs discussion with the comments as he originally made them:

The most interesting issue is to compare how much of Rush's comments are about Jesse MacBeth and how Media Matters never even mentions his name!
