NOW Calls for Clear Channel to Pull the Plug on Limbaugh

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...

That accounts for Romney and McCain, certainly. I sense a little perimenopausal confusion going on at the NOW offices.

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.

Are they also asking for the plug to be pulled on the State-Run-Media? David Letterman? Bill Mahr?

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.

It would be difficult to imagine Rush being able to say anything that could be half so demeaning to American womanhood as the ongoing disparaging of femininity, which has been NOW's stock-in-trade. My article on Women Hostage To Contrived Delusion, largely had the NOW types in mind.

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 heard a bit of Sean Hannity’s Show today and he played some clips from that chump Bill Maher. Pretty sure Hannity said Maher called Palin the c-word once. I am going to search to see if this is accurate.

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.

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.

Seems to me from her testimony that this Fluke chic pretty much laid out the definition of herself as a slut, Rush just simplified it to a single term.

Good luck doing that! Limbaugh's radio show is a GIGANTIC moneymaker for many AM stations and given that he single-handedly saved AM radio from possible oblivion back in the early 1990's, Clear Channel is NOT going to lose their biggest moneymaker.

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.

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.
