In the past two weeks, as the controversy over Rush Limbaugh’s “phony soldiers” comments unfolded, VoteVets.org has been at the forefront of pushing to hold Limbaugh accountable for disparaging pro-withdrawal soldiers. On MSNBC’s Countdown last Friday, VoteVets.org Vice President Brandon Friedman read aloud some of the hate mail the organization has received from Limbaugh’s listeners:
- “Do us all a favor and shoot yourself. You are a waste of human flesh.”
- “Tell the truth about Rush. You phony piece of [expletive].”
- “You traitorous bunch of [expletive] cowards.”
- “Rush Limbaugh is a great American, and you are a phony.”
