FCC Should Clear Limbaugh Fom Airwaves [PC FemiNazis Declare War on Limbaugh]
CNN ^ | March 10, 2012 | Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem

FCC Should Clear Limbaugh Fom Airwaves By Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem, Special to CNN March 10, 2012

Limbaugh has long history of hate speech. FCC should ask: Are stations carrying him are acting "in public interest," writers say.

Editor's note: Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan, and Gloria Steinem are the Co-Founders of the Women's Media Center.

(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: --Women cabinet members are "Sex-retaries." --"The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies." --The National Organization for Women is "a bunch of whores to liberalism." --[Said to an African American female caller]: "Take that bone out of your nose and call me back."

These are just a few samples from the arsenal of degrading language Limbaugh deploys on women, people of color, lesbians and gays, immigrants, the disabled, the elderly, Muslims, Jews, veterans, environmentalists and so forth.

Jane Fonda Limbaugh doesn't 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," doesn't even raise eyebrows anymore, an example of how rhetoric spreads when unchallenged by coarsened cultural norms.

Robin Morgan

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....

Didn’t the Femi-Nazis try to do this several years ago? My guess is that they’ll be just as successful this time around.

The only thing Limbaugh is guilty of is telling the truth and is driving the liberal moon bats nuts.

Well, their attempt to shut down Rush by intimidating his advertisers into dropping him has been an abject failure. And since they can’t win this battle in the free market, they’re crying to the govn’t for help.

Open letter to Hanoi Jane and Gloria...

I give women 100% of the respect they deserve. As for you two, shut up and go make me a sammich.

That’s all the respect YOU deserve.

I rather hope it happens, although there is no legal basis for the FCC to do it. Then we will see what happens. Perhaps that is the spark that has to be ignited.

I remember someone taking a picture of Michelle Bachmann eating a corndog, and they turned it into something filthy. They all jumped on it like wild dogs and the dirtier the better. Maher, Letterman, Schultz, Matthews etc. all deserve to go down.

These people are the scum of the earth.

Wonder is they feel the same way about Randi Rhodes (who Quicken Loans advertises with) who said “You know, these women, somebody really needs to go repossess their ovaries,” Rhodes said.

When a scumbag like Ted Turner dumps Hanoi Jane, that’s the worst insult she could get. Are there any men today in the lives of these feminazis?

These women credit Limbaugh with names or insults that I’ve never heard him issue once, and I’ve been listening since ‘94. About the only comment that I’ve ever hear him have to explain is the feminazi comment.

I’ve said it before, the left likes to accuse the right of hate, but these people perfected it.

Jane Fonda should have been executed for treason.

Henry Fonda should have been castrated for breeding this piece of slime.

When she finally dies they will have to find a secret place to bury her so many veterans will want to pee on her grave.

If they succeed at dropping Rush, then by their own standards, Bill Maher, David Letterman and others who made crude remarks should be dropped from the airways as well. I’m sick of this double standard.

Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.

Rush Limbaugh never said that, but over 30 years ago Jeff Christie did, as part of his act.

Common quality shared by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan, and Gloria Steinem — they’re all sluts for the left! They’re all prostitutes for the left!

I had a good understanding of who Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem were but I knew nothing of Robin Morgan. So I did some googling to research her and her background. Overall she’s had a very sad life. I did the same to refresh my memory on Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem. And that research showed the correctness of my memory that they had in common with Ms Morgan (and, yes, it’s IMHO based upon what I consider to be the good things in life) a very sad life. And I could see where their experiences would lead them to an intense dislike or hate of men.

I know I should probably feel anger toward these women with their despicable desires and attempts to suppress Mr. Limbaugh’s rights to free speech. But I can’t help but feel sorrow and pity for them and their sad, unhappy lives.

So I’m going to forget about these three old women and their anger and bitterness. And, tomorrow at noon ET I’ll be tuning into Rush’s show and surrounding myself with Rush’s good cheer and optimism that come so clearly over the air. I only wish the three women could somehow shed their bitterness and try to live in joy for the balance of their lives.

The Republican Party leadership is pathetic. They never expose the “cultural atrocities” of these women and how they act as surrogates for the Rats.
