Contact Rush Limbaugh’s Advertisers, Say NO To “Slut” Language

March 2, 2012

There is no way to defend Rush Limbaugh’s misuse of the airwaves.  There is never justification for calling a woman “a slut”, or demeaning her character on radio.

Americans need to know we have power over the airwaves, because they belong to us.  They do not belong to the corporate interests who abuse our sensibilities with ‘shock jock’ language, and partisan political gamesmanship while reaping profits.

ACT NOW to defend our airwaves.

Earlier this week, Rush Limbaugh referred to a very bright, very brave young woman speaking out on the medical need for birth control as a slut. He then doubled down, demanding that she post videos of her having sex online for his enjoyment.

One of Limbaugh’s advertisers, Sleep Train, has already announced it will no longer advertise on Limbaugh’s program because of this. Sign the petition to the rest of his advertisers telling them to do the same. We will deliver the signatures:

  To Pro Flowers, Domino’s Pizza, Lending Tree, Life Quotes, e-Harmony, OnStar, Hotwire, CARBONITE, Select Comfort, The Neptune Society of Northern California, Oreck Corporation, Mid-West Life Insurance Co. Tennessee, AutoZone Inc., Mission Pharmacal (Citrical), LegalZoom, Blue-Emu, Citrix Online (GoToMyPC), and American Forces Network:
Please pull your advertising from Rush Limbaugh’s radio program in response to his disgusting comments demanding that Sandra Fluke post videos of her having sex for his enjoyment. Sponsoring this sort of hateful commentary reflects very poorly on your organization and calls our continued patronage of your products and services into question.

    It is sad that his employer has not removed him from his position. Sports announcers making comparable racist or other inappropriate comments have lost their jobs. It’s amazing that someone can make statements like this about women and remain employed.

    As an American, as a commentator, as an entertainer, and as a man Rush Limbaugh is a disgrace. He does not deserve any decent person’s or company’s respect. The ugliness this man constantly promotes is pathetic, not funny.
    He is too egotistical to recognize himself accurately. He is not comedic at all. He is strictly a man full of hate and ugliness.
    Anyone who doesn’t see this or condones it, is no better than he is.

    Badger Babe,

    Rush has been married four times and made that famous flight from the Dominican Republic with a bag a of Viagra. So many reasons to blind the mental eye!

    I am told there was a time when Rush Limbaugh’s talk show used to be interesting and entertaining. I’m not sure when that was, as the only thing Limbaugh has been these days is crude and offensive. This is just the latest example of someone who will say anything outrageous to support a narrow ideology — and to try to attract listeners. I will be sending out some e-mails today to some of the companies listed and let them know I’m not interested in doing business with them until they stop advertising with this foul-mouthed bigoted ideologue. I’m not sure he can lower the social commentary “bar” any lower. But I sure don’t want to do anything that would give this pathetic creature an audience. Too bad there isn’t a male-gender insult to appropriately classify Limbaugh. To call him a “whore” is an insult to a class of female entrepreneurs who deserve more respect than he does. There is NOTHING of merit in what this ex-druggie and documented liar has said — on this topic and on a wide range of public issues. It’s not difficult to understand why this man isn’t married.

    He should be sent home permanently. He has once again offended every woman in America even if they don;t know it.

    The devisive language this radio peronality constantly uses it part of the reason our country is so divided and can not get things done anymore. Advertisers like you only care about profits and not your country.
