Hopefully, this helps to bring about his Jos. Welch moment.
I'll keep updating the number of sigs needed in the title of this post.
This is No. 17 of ongoing petition counts -- till the deadline on April 3 -- to obtain 25,000+ signatures asking SecDef Panetta to remove Limbaugh from Armed Forces Radio. No surrender, we're almost there.

My hero in this, teacherken, posted Secretary Panetta, pull Limbaugh from Armed Forces Radio now. It is excellent and I lifted it in almost its entirety. I'm very grateful to teacherken for his PERFECT wording, thank you, sir. I'll continue to hype the petition and ask for sigs until it reaches the required 25,000.
There was a post up by Constance Hilliard, Did Soldier who Killed 16 in Afghanistan Receive his Diploma from the Rush Limbaugh Show?
I think it's a question well worth asking. I commented there,
Whether or not there is a connection, and we don't know that there is -- and the proper questions may never be asked to find out exactly what influence, if any, Limbaugh may have had over this soldier who went berserk -- it is clear that Limbaugh's anger is contagious here in the states.Hammer time.
Just look at the condition of his listeners here. I speak from experience because I'm related to several of his listeners and they slavishly repeat what he says and exude the type of hate for the same things Limbaugh disdains and denigrates every single day. It cannot be said the he doesn't have a strong influence over his devotees.
It would be beneficial if an "exit poll" could be conducted for soldiers returning home, a debriefing of sorts, that would assess their overall mood and what are the contributing factors to their mental state. IOW, are we returning a soldier to [the] streets, the stability of whose mental condition is unknown[?]
I agree that listening to Limbaugh in combat conditions helps dehumanize the "enemy" of choice, and that dehumanization is what the military hierarchy strives for. That the two mesh may be why Limbaugh has been permitted to be on AFN for so long. A disgusting possibility, but DoD has been doing harmful things to soldiers since forever, so this connection would not come as a surprise.
In any event, the veil has been lifted. Get Limbaugh off AFN.
