Are You Fed Up With Rush Limbaugh? How To Take Action


Rush Limbaugh got a lot of attention lately with his mean-spirited, vicious attack on Sandra Fluke, in which he called her a "slut" and a "prostitute" and suggested she post video tapes of herself online having sex. But really, Limbaugh has been doing this sort of thing for many years. Remember in 2006, when Limbaugh mocked Michael J. Fox's symptoms of Parkinson's disease?

If you're fed up with Limbaugh and the daily toxic nonsense he spews on the nation's public airwaves, I urge you to take action.

Go here to sign a petition to Clear Channel to discontinue Rush Limbaugh's show.

Go here to add your voice to a group of female veterans who are calling for the Armed Forces Network to drop Rush Limbaugh from its programming. (Armed Forces Network by the way, is funded with your tax dollars.

Go to BoycottRush.org and join the more than 100,00 people who've signed the petition there using Limbaugh's advertisers to drop him. Note: this site also includes an up-to-date list of Limbaugh's advertisers, along with contact information.

At this site, you can access the #StopRush Limbaugh Campaign, which rounds up news, info and resources on the various efforts across the Internet to pressure Clear Channel and advertisers to stop supporting Limbaugh.

Go here to file a complaint with the FCC about Limbaugh's show. (Remember, his program is aired on the public airwaves that are owned by We The People. Note: Left Leaning Liberal Lady offers a good suggestion: "contact the FCC to file a complaint against Rush Limbaugh for soliciting pornography via public airwaves."

At this site, you can find detailed information about the companies that are still advertising on Rush's show, as well as updates on those companies who've dropped their ads. Be sure to add your voice to those who are contacting these companies, asking them to stop sponsoring Limbaugh. (And until these companies do so, we should boycott their products and services).

Add your name to this Facebook page which is coordinating a boycott-Limbaugh effort (and which already has over 30,000 "Likes"). (Note: Twitter users can add their voices here at #boycottrush).

As a Veteran I wonder why R. Limpballs needs to have his chicken hawk ass cyst supported via a Government funded network?

Why is Limpballs not simply relying on the Free Market?

Also as Limbaugh is a chicken hawk, sexist, racist, misogynistic sack of filth his voice does not represent the best of the Nation and should not be broadcast to foreign shows as indicative of American values.

Hi Grung_e_Gene, thanks for stopping by and your comment.
As you are a veteran, I have a question to ask you: why, in your opinion, aren't active military personal leading the charge to remove Rush from Armed Forces Network?
Why do any of them listen to this cowardly, draft-dodging piece of human waste in the first place? Why weren't they offended when Rush smeared the war hero John Kerry? And weren't they troubled by Rush's support of Bush's war in Iraq---a war in which over 4,000 U.S. troops died for no reason other than to secure oil for multi-nation petroleum corporate giants?

Just for the heck of it, I’ve listened to the Rush show, and found that he promotes his show in having negativity towards our current President.
Okay freedom of speech I understand, but he actually is making the people of the United States look stupid to rest of the world. He says he’s not racist, but blames President Obama on everything that others may cause. He uses phrases like “I think” openly in blaming everything on Obama and democrats.
He’s a republican, and has access to our nation’s airwaves.
You could say that he’s the communist promoting he’s show to line his pocket and brain washing his audience propaganda against our current leaders. Wake up people… it’s a radio show.
He’ll give you an Ipad if you agree with him and play along with his ploy against Obama. He’ll never admit to anyone that he’s prejudice. But listen closely “it’s a game”. So if a republican was in office “they will do no wrong”, as long as they don’t take anything like he’s money from him.
The gift of gab will get his own someday. It always ends up that way.
I agree… Someone does need to stop his damaging Nation dividing rampage over the public airwaves. Our nation does not need a knuckle head making things worst.
I feel for his cult followers.
