Critics of conservative host Rush Limbaugh are making a push to get him taken off Armed Forces Radio.
A petition on the White House's website requests that Limbaugh's show no longer be aired on the armed forces network, which reaches U.S. troops overseas. As of 7:30 tonight, more than 10,500 people had signed the petition, which was posted to the site Sunday.
Limbaugh last week attacked Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke after she testified before Congress in favor of a requirement backed by the Obama administration to require health insurance companies to provide contraception coverage. Limbaugh has since apologized.

They won’t stop until they ruin Rush.
Or until we rise up against them.
AS much as I would like to shut down the LSM, I refuse to become the modern equivalent of a Nazi book burner like the left wing haters.
Whoa....There IS a free speech issue here. We can find millions of folks who have said worse. How about Hillary’s “f’n Jew”...or Mahar’s “C”...or the “N” word by Senator Byrd...etc, etc, etc...
Shouldn’t this be a decision made by the people who actually listen to Armed Forces Radio, rather than mad-dog outsiders who have nothing to do with it?
IF there is any intelligence in OBozo’s re-elect team this will never happen. Why? The last thing he wants is to turn all the military voters over to the pubbies.
Rush is strong-willed and will not run from a fight. And he's even more strong-willed after losing Breitbart.
The people signing this petition also most likely believe that our troops are oppressors killing random civilians for the fun of it.
Rush is probably thinking the same thing. They reeled him in hook, line and sinking. Hindsight has its way of being 20/20.
Is there a list of the companies pulling their sponsorship from Rush so we can know who to boycott?
Why was he caught off-guard by this? He's always been able to "read the stitches," and (as someone who's been a dittohead for more than twenty years) that was not an empty boast.
How could he have missed this one? I wonder if he was thrown off balance by Andy's shocking death? It sounds like they were more than casual acquaintences.
I've never heard Rush stumble so badly. I didn't want to listen to his show today.
I held my breath and visited DU today. Those zombies are going nuts call-bombing sponsors, radio stations, etc.
At 2:00 or so the WH (BS!)petition site had about 5000 comments on this particular liberal gripe. Now I see it’s over 10,000. The official armed forces position was more or less “we don’t make these decisions...” but I would expect Obumo will feel our soldiers pain and cut off Limbaugh. We have got to get this b’tard out of office.
How's that apology working out for ya?
We need never to apologyze to the Lib Lefts; they will always use it against you!
Like John Waynes saying [in the movie, “She wore a Yellow Ribbon”]........”Never apologyze, It is a sign of weakness.”
This is nothing new, I think they limit him to one hour a day anyway.
Steely I agree 100% with you and I have been attacked here on FR for stating so... several times today infact. Thanks for letting me know that I am not alone in my opinion... we got owned today.
In history books, 2012 will be known as the year of the fluck
Here is the Soro’s Media Matters whatever list of companies “they” are targeting:
With other Liberal commentators out there like Ed Schultz, Howard Stern, Bill Maher, etc,,, who have all said far worse than Rush did, and got away with it, it is the rule of Law that they will have to let Rush go also.
They may try to sue Rush, or get his network affiliations canceled, but that alone would also violate the Constitution.
Clear Channel, (Who airs Rush) etc, is hog tied, Since they also have Schultz, Stern, AirHead Amerika, etc, all of which would be a clear example of the ultimate Bias and hypocrisy.
Programming on Armed Forces Radio and TV is given to the DoD at little to no cost to the government. Commercial advertisements are removed and replaced with military-specific information ads. The troops would probably complain mightily if this free show was taken away.
Only 10,500 people signed the petition? Heck, I’ve got that many illegals in my basement. Maybe I can get them to sign it if I promise them amnesty. Love, Nancy Pelosi.
Thanks. Sears and JC Penney’s will not be hard to boycott, although I do like Craftsman products. With Sears already in trouble you would think they would be smarter than this.
