Skip to comments.Clear Channel petition to cancel Rush's show, generated by Move-On Member
Posted on 03/06/2012 5:39:18 PM PST by rebelskid
Dear MoveOn member, Rush Limbaugh has gone too far with his attacks on Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke, calling her a "slut" and a "prostitute" and suggesting she post video tapes of herself online having sex. Rush Limbaugh's radio show is a part of the Clear Channel lineup, and it's time that they no longer allow Rush Limbaugh to spew hateful and derogatory comments. That's why I created a petition to Clear Channel on SignOn.org, which says: Sandra Fluke, a law student at Georgetown University who was advocating for health insurance plans to cover the cost of contraception, became the target of a series of attacks by Rush Limbaugh. Besides calling her a "slut," he also called her a "prostitute," said that he wanted her to make sex tapes and post them online, and speculated that she only had a problem paying for contraception because she was having "so much sex." We who support Ms. Fluke find that this is a serious offense committed by Mr. Limbaugh, and we ask that his radio show be terminated. Will you sign the petition?

Sounds like it was written by a child. Clear Channel’s not going to shoot the golden goose.
What is wrong with showing a slut whore spreading deadly germs through videoed sex of her in the action of her crimes?
Liberals project their hate and self loathing on our usage of words they assume they know what they mean in us.
But perhaps the health care havoc done by liberal sluts is what liberals want us to forget about, just like forgetting about abortion, death camps for the Jews under Hitler or anybody else under Mao/Stalin.
I really don’t understand why Rush gave all of this to the LibDems. He created his own “Hush Rush” campaign. I like Rush - and have listened for years - but he crossed a major line. He can/will rehab himself but his timing played into the LibDems hands.
Rush is a partner in Clear Channel and Premier Networks. They would have to buy him out, and he will just go to satellite.
They can’t silence him. He he he.
Indeed, people like real music, not this hush crap that suffocates the thought worse than a plastic bag over a liberal’s head.
Waltz a matter, move on...SLUT gotcha down?
So you are just going to “roll over” and play dead like most Republican do now days. The Republicans have been very well trained by the left to keep their damn mouths shut and we do it very well.
Oooooh, a petition by people who don’t listen to Rush and therefor are not Clear Channel listeners petitioning CC to remove Rush.
Rush’s problem is that he speaks the truth. The maggots now infesting and feeding off of our once great country can’t handle the truth.
I can’t disagree more with your position. Rush spoke the truth. It is “TRUTH” that the demoncRATS want to silence. Truth from anyone who dares to expose the left for who and what they really are. The demoncRATS win this fight only if capitulation occurs.

You don’t want to be associated with this kind of speech. It is free speech, but will cost your stations in the long run.
265614. Robert D Siebrands Mar 6, 2012 Waterloo, IA
I seriously doubt the radio station would cancel the offending program simply because support it or not they are in the business of making money, no more no less. That said, until the station sees those funds dry up or if the offenders contract makes it financially unfavorable he is here to stay. Too bad to, he is such a P I G. No more no less

Shame on Mr. Limbaugh. It’s one thing to disagree and its another to be rude and demeaning to women. He is a disgrace and shouldn’t be spreading such hate talk on the radio.

The corporation that owns Clear Channel needs to be held accountable for what they are allowing to go out over the airwaves. The Supreme Courts’ United Citizens decision makes corporations essentially people with similar responsibilities and accountability in the eyes of the law.

go to the petition and flag it as hate speech! If enough of us do this maybe they will pull the damn petition.
time to return the favor
we need petitions to remove progressives from all media channels
we need boycotts on businesses that advertise on progressive channels
we need to stop hiring all progressives and run any progressives out of our business
push all progressives into the occu-tard tents
they don’t like capitalism.. then don’t let them play
WE OUTNUMBER THEM ... MAKE IT HURT
We need to get organized like they are and do it now. We must start to control some of the conversations or our beloved country will die.
flagged as hate :-)
Rush was not demeaning women he was demeaning a libslut who turned out to be a reproductive justice agitator.
No, Rush will NEVER go to satellite. If he must go somewhere, he will go to short wave radio. I would expect to a freqency just below the commercial AM band...maybe around 490 kilohertz. Or just above the AM band, like 1800 kilohertz.
Yikes! That’s a lot of free speech hating Nazis. I didn’t realize that there were that many of them infesting our once great country. I guess they have a problem with the Bill of Rights.
Sort of reminds me of an Apache strategy...
Send a few warriors down to woof it up and beat a narrow retreat up a shallow draw, staying tantalizingly out of range, slowing and faking as need be to lure the pursuers up and into an increasingly severe canyon until suddenly it is just a hair too late to retreat.
Already the liberal examples of hypocrisy are widely evident. They’re in the canyon- let’s crush them!
He’s like a Jedi knight.
Kill him and he becomes more powerful.
Indeed, the madness of Move on is to insinuate to its adherents that forgetting and drugs is empowering, whereas remembering victims, history and being punished for wrongs is evil.
How can these people go to the abyss like that, feeling released and happy all will be fine so long they forget, is the most existential hypocritical crock of madness yet. It reminds me of these kids in the horror of those projects who are told they have to forget the rapes and diseases of loved ones.
And then we wonder why crime is bad down there. Bunch of crack head maker is what Move On is all about.
wow... it’s up to 266,000 plus signatures... that’s quite a list of idiots. I can’t believe some of the comments.
Meet the “paper OWS”... many scary people around we have no idea about.
Hey D. Washington, If you don’t like Rush turn off your Fnig radio. Now how hard is that?
This effort is massive, and in fact it has little to do with the SLUT:
It’s because they realize their boy is SOOOOOOooooo weak —that now he’s almost certainly a 1-termer, and that gas prices are going to KEEP rising.
With the approaching election they KNOW they have to get rid of Rush, if the bisexual Muslim is to have a prayer.
Thanks for cleaning that up for me. I don’t post much. Since Breitbarts passing last week, I’ve resolved to become more active. I’ll attempt to hone my posting skills in future participation.
LOL, bet most on the petition don’t even listen to Rush.
i went there...how do you flag it for hate speech?? TIA....
Just below the head line, there is a flag on the right. Click and it will give you several choices.
Since Limbaugh just signed a five year contract....and generates millions (some say one billion a year) every yer for them CC would cancel him why?
I see that Hugh Jorgan and Lucy V. Gina singed. Not much for validating signatures...
Put your big boy pants on and play the game hard or go home.
Limbaugh spoke truth.
Happy you are going to be more active. We NEED you!
There is a “button” in the upper right hand corner.
Since they don’t validate signatures, anyone could sign it an place praises in the comments section for Limbaugh.
Thanks for the advice Pops. It was RUSH that offered the apology. Are you saying he was wrong to do so? He could have accomplished the same thing without devolving to the same name-calling like Mahr (calling Palin the "C" word). Many conservative women I know have held their conservative position, but now refuse to listen to Rush. I can't blame them. He should have shown some class, and he knows it.
So you know wimpy easily offend conservative women, the ones I know all laughed and thought he was great and speaks the truth.
If your ‘friends’ wont listen to him because he said slut, IE called a slut a slut, then the conservative movement is lost.......no wait most conservative women have more brains than your friends.
This is hard ball, it is going to be hard to win back our country, we do not need noddle spine people of either gender.
So pull up those pants and put some steel in your back bone.
“Clear Channels not going to shoot the golden goose.”
Ad $$ are what make the goose golden.
But as long as Rush has been broadcasting, hopefully he’ll weather this storm. It’s just frightening how the Left’s power grows and, from the White House down, threatens to stifle conservative speech.
Not this woman! I’m no longer silent. Half the list of Rush’s advertisors down. Half to go. Calling my radio station and emailing them thanking them for carrying Rush’s show.
Plus, I’m no longer a Republican. I’m a conservative and will vote as such.
LOL, bet most on the petition dont even listen to Rush.
My experience here lately and mostly on Facebook, is that not only do they not listen to Rush, but they want to convince you that they KNOW what the man thinks and what he means. When given facts about 2009 David Letterman’s statutatory rape joke of 14 year old Willow Palin (ABC, CBS, FOX Google — Palin vs. Letterman) getting “KNOCKED UP” by Alex Rodriquez, one lib acutally had the gall to write the following:
“Well Willow Palin and Bristol deserve this because they are the poster children for abstinance.”
Other libs like to name call with their hate, yell, scream, and insult thereby avoiding the argument. Then they claim they have won and you have lost. One guy said the facts of David Letterman’s statutatory rape joke and Bill Mahr’s comments didn’t hold water. Why when they are factually proven? Because Limbaugh’s apology was not sincere, Limbaugh is a sexist, bigot, homophobe etc....
Yeah, I know makes perfect sense.
Again with the insults. I hope a conservative can have a position without calling the opposition vulgar names. So the only conservative position must be an uncivil one? I don't think so. I hope not. It is not the example I'd like to leave behind. Reagan was strong without calling anyone a slut on the public airwaves. Netanyahu is a class act - strong, steel-spined, and civil. It can be done, and it is more attractive.
