NOW Calls for Clear Channel to Pull the Plug on Limbaugh Statement of NOW President Terry O'Neill
March 2, 2012
Bigoted bully Rush Limbaugh has been rewarded for his hostile, hate-filled speech for far too long. The National Organization for Women calls on Clear Channel Communications to pull the plug on Limbaugh's gilded microphone immediately. In addition, we call on Limbaugh's conservative comrades in the media to fully denounce, with no excuses, his derogatory comments.
Limbaugh's targeting of Sandra Fluke was way out of line, even for him. Limbaugh is free to disagree all he wants with Fluke -- a Georgetown Law student who testified before a congressional committee in support of health care coverage for birth control -- but calling her a 'slut' and a 'prostitute' on air is unacceptable. After sparking outrage, Limbaugh took to the airwaves again yesterday to suggest that if Fluke wants contraception to be fully covered, she should post videos of herself having sex online so Limbaugh and others can watch.
Clearly, Limbaugh is not just having fun here. He is trying to shame a young woman for coming forward, speaking her mind and standing up for women's rights. This is how bullies try to chase all women from the public square.
Isn't the GOP embarrassed by this man by now? Remember, Limbaugh is not some fringe right-winger -- he has been identified time and time again as a lead strategist in the Republican party, not to mention a king-maker and an enforcer. The fact that this man has so much power in one of the two dominant political parties in the United States is shameful.

So they want to shut down Rush for calling an ugly broad a “slut” but are totally fine with Muslims stoning, imprisoning and killing women who are raped by family members... got it...
>>>> he has been identified time and time again as a lead strategist in the Republican party, not to mention a king-maker and an enforcer<<<<
That accounts for Romney and McCain, certainly. I sense a little perimenopausal confusion going on at the NOW offices.
The Nags have taken the bait.
mmmmmmm, I always thought the left considered Rush nothing but a simple entertainer. This seems like an awful lot of fuss over some simple entertainer now doesn’t it?
And they are an open-minded, tolerant, diverse and unbiased group, too. Look out Rush. /sarc.
How many showed up in Boston at the NOW convention? Like 200?
There they go again..giving the titular head of the Republican Party back to Rush! So where does this leave Colin Powell? Totally irrelevant?
I’m sure these a-holes were all over the SOB Bill Maher calling Sarah Palin the c-word./s
WOW, it took NOW what, two seconds to demand Rush get pulled off the air, yet it took them a WEEK to demand some half ass apology from Bill Maher for calling Sarah Palin a cunt..and Maher NEVER apologized..and even when NOW demanded this half ass apology they trashed her while doing it..Hey NOW, you SUCK..this 30 year old woman is a whore, perhaps she should stop using her beaver so much, God didn’t intend for it to be used like that
always fun to hear the 36 teeth folk yammer
They never learn, this will give Rush an excuse to raise his ad rates again!
Ah, the jihadis scream and shout again.
It’s also okay to make fun of Sarah Palin and call her dumb.
It’s also okay to make fun of her down syndrome child.
These people are insane.
Those latter 3 had no "Phone Call of Support to the victim" when they trashed Sarah Palin (and her Family) for about 4 years, 24/7, and the latter two used derogatory vulgar terms, too.
No hypocrisy here, though....just move along.
But they won't stop Rush from keeping his job. If that were the case, then Billy Boy Maher would also have to go off the air. The first amendment has it covered.
You know this stuff makes Romney nervous, while Newt would join Rush in condemning the idea that somehow the rest of us must foot the bill for somebody else’s good time.
Funny how these entitlement parasites want to take our tax money and then make us shut up.
If the not so dears at NOW actually cared about real women, they would radically alter the causes they embrace, and start honoring the traditional feminine traits, which decent & normal men have always honored. The idea that the sexes are somehow competing interest groups, rather than the two essential components of human continuity & purpose, is totally indefensible in logic--and a terrible detriment to human happiness.
Mark my words: Monday, Rush will go after the NAGs and play the “credibility card” on them - telling them they have a leg to stand on after they’ve called on HBO to sh|t-can Maher’s show... and when they’ve called on pMSNBC to fire any arseportal who’s uttered “tea bagger”... shall I go on??
i have 36 teeth and all my senses... and i don’t think she should have to pay for her birth control... the schmucks she sleeps with should, it’s the gentlemanly thing to do.
the tee stands for teeth... all in, all good.

If NOW does not want men to view women as meat. Why do they have a spokes-something named “Veal”? Look at the top of the thread and who issued the statement. Inquiring minds want to know.
NOW calls for Rush to be tossed off radio?
Over the decades when Rush has been on the air, when did they ever stop calling for him to be kicked off radio? That’s what I’d like to know.
NOW can go straight to hell, not pass Go, and not collect 200 condoms.
When did these Leftist broads ever come to the rescue of an Islamic woman? They are so myopic they can’t see ten feet in front of them.
Has Rush advocated women be killed for honor? Has he ever advocated clitorectomies? Has he ever demanded these women wear veils? Has he ever damanded they be forbidden to drive a car? Has he ever demanded they be beaten if they didn’t wear their veils? Has he ever advocated them to be stoned for any reason?
The answer to all these question is no. He has spoken out against these practices.
Has NOW? NO! No they haven’t.
The sows that run NOW are the ones that should be run out of town, for the frauds they have always been.
If the sows at now get women free contraceptives, then I want free season tickets to the Dodgers. None of those nose bleed seats either.
They are dreaming he is their breadbox.
I seem to recall Letterman calling Palin a sluut. I think he’s still on the air.
Someone called her a twaaat. He’s still on the air.

It’s a rainy Friday and I’m lazy.
Can you copy and paste NOW’s statement(s) from the 90s denouncing Bill Clinton’s serial abuse of his power of office to seduce, sexually harass, intimidate and threaten women?
You say there are no such statements? Oh.
LOL at the NAGS*
National Association of Gals.
Never pick a fight with a guy with his own microphone.
Nag wags rag
A very good friend of mine took great delight at the most embarrasing times standing up and announcing to everyone that you couldn’t call her a whore because whores get paid and she gave it away.
That usually happened when she was sitting next to me and things were quiet at the local watering hole.
Very pretty and intelligent gal who fell in with the wrong crowd and no matter how much any of us tried to help her she always backslid.
I was the last of her friends to see her alive. She was in the hospital, her heart stopped and couldn’t be revived. She had gone back with an old boyfriend and ended up taking heroin through her eye.
Sometimes no matter how much you help there is nothing you can do.
Her boyfriend got out of charges but also passed from drug use later.
She did teach me the meaning between the two words FWIW.
He’s the issue NOW.
Women in committed relationships share the cost of contraceptives.
Women that sleep around, can’t. And what are women who sleep around with different men generally considered to be?
You folks really don’t have a clue do you.
How did women until this moment in our nation, afford contraceptives before this? I’ll bet that causes a brain-freeze.
Especially a golden microphone
HA! Needed a good laugh today. Those silly NAGs.
Besides SlutFluke made herself a target by putting herself in the public spotlight. If you don’t want criticism, don’t make yourself a target. Fair game.
HA! They’re crying she’s just a little girl. Must be so empowering.
Shouldn’t they be called NOS?
Is this the same NOW that said nary a word about the rapist in Chief Bill Clintoon? Let’s take a look back in history.....
NOW has just helped Rush’s ratings go through the roof.
And has given Rush material for the next year!
Nah, no noticeable arm pit braids.
Admirable try though... :^)
no rush will have a background sound of boing, boing, boing, boing sounds during NOW updates.
(for those in rio linda, boing as in bouncig from mattress to to matreess)
BTW do Fluke updates need a (Boing Boing Alert)?
Entertaining is an understatement. Where was NOW when the women Clinton abused spoke up?
Rush is my man.
