Skip to comments.Feminist Hags Jane Fonda And Gloria Steinem Call For FCC To Ban Rush Limbaugh…

But dont worry, their demands to purge the airways of Rush isnt political.
FCC should clear Limbaugh from airwaves Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem/CNN
Ironically, the misogyny Rush Limbaugh spewed for three days over Sandra Fluke was not much worse than his regular broadcast of sexist, racist and homophobic hate speech:
Limbaugh doesnt just call people names. He promotes language that deliberately dehumanizes his targets. Like the sophisticated propagandist Josef Goebbels, he creates rhetorical frames and the bigger the lie the more effective inciting listeners to view people they disagree with as sub-humans. His longtime favorite term for women, femi-nazi, doesnt even raise eyebrows anymore, an example of how rhetoric spreads when unchallenged by coarsened cultural norm.
At least this most recent incident has turned a spotlight back on the vile, damaging statements Limbaugh has been promulgating for years. His sponsors are dropping him; his stations have begun to follow suit. VoteVets, a coalition of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, released a statement by female vets, including Katherine Scheirman, former chief of medical operations in the U.S. Air Forces, demanding that the American Forces Network drop Limbaugh from its programming. [...]
This isnt political. While we disagree with Limbaughs politics, whats at stake is the fallout of a society tolerating toxic, hate-inciting speech. For 20 years, Limbaugh has hidden behind the First Amendment, or else claimed hes really doing humor or entertainment. He is indeed constitutionally entitled to his opinions, but he is not constitutionally entitled to the peoples airways.
The FCC takes such complaints into consideration when stations file for license renewal. For local listeners near a station that carries Limbaughs show, there is plenty of evidence to bring to the FCC that their station isnt carrying out its public interest obligation. Complaints can be registered under the broadcast category of the FCC website: http://www.fcc.gov/complaints
I think we should call for the FCC to ban them.
“They’re still mad that the term “femi-nazis” has become a commonplace. LOL”
It’s true. I and people I know use it all the time in conversation without even thinking about it.
Looks like Hanoi Jane wants to ban the free speech that she said was so vital back when she sat at that AA gun.
She and Gloria are nothing more than bitter old hags trying to stay relevant.
I was surprised to discover that those two old fossils were still this side of the lawn.
He called me a femi Nazi! Use your centralized government power to silence him!
No one criticizes the regime!
They NEVER go away do they?
Hey Hanoi Jane, I still got your number. So STFU!!!!!!!!
I’ve never hears Rush call all women “feminazis”. Sarah Palin most certainly isn’t a feminazi. The term applies to a woman who uses feminism to attack men, silence any objection to abortion, etc. In other words, Ms. Allred and Ms. Fonda.
If I were Rush, I’d be tempted to just say “OK, I quit, you win” and take the program off the air. He could easily buy cheap time on shortwave stations not under US licensing control and he’d have the internet to use.
Would such a move force Clear Channel and other large radio groups into bankruptcy? I dunno, but the loss of revenue would absolutely cause layoffs. How long would it take for even those who disagree with his political views would be clamoring for him to come back? Again I don’t know, but if I had to put up with this crap all the time and already had more money than I knew what to do with, it might be tempting to let the radio industry find out whether it would be such a wonderful life without me.
I’m amazed some Viet Vet who was maybe in a viet cong prisoner of war camp hasn’t beat snot out of hanoi jane, yet.
Not advocating mine you,

Rush: ‘There Is Shellshock’ That Campaign to Marginalize Him Hasn’t Worked, and Has Backfired
“....Everything they hoped to accomplish this week, they’ve not accomplished. They might have 25 years ago, but they haven’t. They, on the left, are now being forced by an army of people on the right to comport themselves to the same standards that they are demanding of others, and that’s going to put a real crimp in their style. Remember, when I apologized I said one aspect of what I had done wrong was I descended to their level. And I meant
to emphasize that. I descended to their level. That’s what was, among other things, wrong about it. But it was a one-time thing for me. They live there. Now they’ve been called on it.
......There is shellshock on the left. They thought this was the time. This was the gonna be that moment when they finally succeeded. Right now they’re sitting out there in stunned confusion trying to figure out why it hasn’t happened, why am I still here. Again, I don’t mean to be cryptic, but your level of understanding on this is already quite high. I’m just telling you:
Don’t doubt the enthusiasm that exists on our side to triumph over these people, at the ballot box, where and how it should be done. This event turned out to be... It wasn’t a fluke. It was purposeful.
All they ended up doing was calling attention to their own constant misogyny. All they ended up doing was focusing the attention on all of their people on the left who are constantly and every day in the gutter.
They’re not there by accident or by mistake, like I was for five minutes. They live there, and that’s what’s been made plain this week. That has been what has been made clear. ...” ~ Rush: March 09, 2012

“....The sexism police long ago exempted Bill Clinton from any conversation about ill-treatment of women. Some of the same people who condemn Limbaugh for his treatment of Fluke go deaf, dumb and blind over Clinton’s treatment of and statements about the women who dared confront him.” ~ Larry Elder http://townhall.com/columnists/larryelder/2012/03/08/creators_oped

Hanoi Jane--Leon Rausch (1973)
Rush has once again coaxed the little feminist weasels out of their pods.
I agree, they are enemies of the state not limbaugh
No doubt all three wish they were still sluts, but their days (and nights) of glory are long gone.
May I suggest to the person form Haiku that wants our radio stations to remove the Rush Limbaugh show, well, let me put it this way as an example. At a little town in N. Calif. called Redding, the local Rush haters decided to have a protest at the radio station to have Rush taken off the air. Only six people showed up and the attendance was so dismal that even they went home early. On Friday morning the station manager came on the air shortly before Rush's show started and said that, "if you don't like listening to Rush Limbaugh, Bill Maher, Ed Shultz or anyone else that offends you, you are welcome to turn them off or turn your dial. We here believe in FREEDOM OF SPEECH."
(then I added) The difference between Liberals and Conservatives is vast. If a conservative doesn't like guns he does not buy one or allow one in his home. If a liberal does not like guns he wants to take them away from everybody.
If a conservative is a vegetarian, he does not eat meat. If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants to take meat out of the schools, the stores and your refrigerator.
If a conservative doesn't like Rush Limbaugh (pretty unlikely though) he does not listen to him. If a liberal does not like Rush he wants him completely removed from the airways.
Sir, you can regulate Rush by turning your dial but don't try to press your views on Rush's twenty million listeners that love him.
Sometimes if you can’t pull something, push it.
Maybe Rush should go on the air and announce that he is being forced off the air because of the boycott and calls for him to be banned.
His fired up base would be AWESOME! He would be back on the air bigger than ever and it might help an anti-obama turn out.
A treasonous Communist insists this isn’t political when she calls for government censorship of dissenting opinion.
Patience. They will.
