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.
