Posted on 01/26/2011 6:53:44 AM PST by kristinn
State Sen. Leland Yee is going after another right-wing heavyweight, this time launching a boycott of any companies that advertise on Rush Limbaugh's radio show.
Yee, a Democrat who represents northern San Mateo County and western San Francisco, began reaching out Tuesday to dozens of civil rights organizations to ask them to condemn Limbaugh.
His staff has compiled a list of the show's sponsors and, with the help of the community groups, will begin putting pressure on them to pull their advertisements from the show. Yee also wants people to stop patronizing the show's advertisers and has launched an online petition for residents to join the boycott.
Yee decided to initiate the protest after Limbaugh "mocked the Chinese language and culture" during his Jan. 19 radio program and refused to apologize.
"I think this is very damaging for children (to hear that) Rush Limbaugh thinks it's OK to make fun of another language or make fun of those individuals who may speak another language," Yee said.
Yee said he's simply looking for an apology, which he hopes will start Limbaugh down a road toward "internal reflection" about his actions.

They don’t have to be Manchurian candidates out there in the Bay Area, they’re pretty open about being Stalinists.
Thanks. Thats all i really needed to know. The Red Menace is alive and well right here in the USA. McCarthy was right.
This offensive maggot was not even born here and wants to call the shots
He is a Han supremacist same as the ChiCom leadership
I do give credit to his parents for giving him a very Anglo first name. They wanted to be part of America
This maggot would have kept quiet five years ago but now with China on the rise he feels free to be a Chinese supremacist just like that pianist Lang Lang in the White House
Many freepers are acquainted at how racist the Chinese can be.
I respect Chinese and Japanese cultures but if you are gunning for America then I am against you
In 1992, Yee was accused of the petty misdemeanor crime of shoplifting a small bottle of sunscreen in Hawaii. In 1993, the case was closed without prejudice after Yee left the jurisdiction without informing law enforcement.
On September 4, 2007 it was revealed using WikiScanner that IP addresses registered to computers in the California Senate office had made changes to its Wikipedia entry favoring Leland Yee.
Senator Yee introduced SB 1451, a bill that ensures California students do not learn from a modified curriculum designed by Texas-based textbook publishers.
In April 2010, Yee filed a public records request to discover if any state funds were used by California State Stanislaus Foundation to hire and pay former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin $75,000 to speak at the school’s 50th anniversary celebration on June 25. The foundation refused to divulge the any information about fees paid to Palin.
Yee said, “It’s rather disappointing that Sarah Palin is asking for nearly $100,000 to speak at this anniversary event when we’re looking at state increases in student fees, cancellations of classes and the fact that this money could be going to scholarships She could do wonders for all of us by taking this money and donating it back to the foundation.”
A bill introduced Wednesday in the Legislature seeks compensation equity for part-time community college teachers statewide who have the same credentials and work experience as their full-time counterparts.
The legislation by state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, would require college districts to create a salary and service-credit, or pension, schedule for part-time faculty that mirrors the one for full-time instructors.
Pic of Leland Yee. That's him on the right.
When are these pathetic lefties going to come up with an original idea. Sheesh.

I thought Rush was also talking about how difficult it was to discern anything in Chinese because of his cochlear implant.
sorry, couldn't resist.
Note to Yee's constituents: Y'all surely can pick 'em....

Read my tagline. If these Democrat “progressives” are so sure of themselves, why do they have to silence everyone who disagrees with them? Isn’t tolerance part of a “civilized” public discourse?

What a sense of humor ~ ON BOTH SIDES.
This Yee guy, though, clearly has NO sense of humor. That can be a problem with people who are not well assimilated into either Chinese or American culture.
Maybe he should be deported to some island where there are nothing but humorless Chinese-Americans, or American-Chinese, or ABCs or CBAs, or whatever.
Then he can be happy and smug and the rest of us (nearly 2 billion combined Chinese and American populations combined) can get cast aspersions on him and he won't know about it.
I'm sure Hu will LHAO when he reads about this guy.
Remember how many politicians in Calif wanted to boycott Arizona products when they passed SB 1070?
Then Arizona loudly told them—go ahead.....you get a large amount of ELECTRICITY from producers in Arizona.
We can sell it elsewhere-— The loudmouths shut up fast, did’t they??
Leland Yee is beyond self-absorbed. He really thinks he matters.
Someone is missing their corn cob & from that pic, I think I know where it is——up Leland’s behind & it is stuck there.
Thanks for all your excellent, informative posts on this thread!
Yee is a State of Salifornia SENATOR—not Federal....clarification that should have appeared in the original article.
Boy, oh boy, is journalism dead.
My spelling is also dead, it seems.
Agreed - good luck with that, Skippy...
I'm usually wrong about Legal matters so it's safe to say Abuse of powers.
If so, someone(s) in his district needs to file a complaint that this should not take place ... the govt. should NOT be attacking a private citizen.
Did he also call for a boycott when rosie o’dumbell did that a couple years ago?
Never stopped them before...........
Yee! That's not very civil. Sounds pretty vitriolic, actually.
offense is sport for the rare.
GEE with all of the problems Californa has right now isn’t it nice to knw that an elected offical has time to not just listen to Rush but also organize a boycott.You’d think his time would be better spent trying to solve California’s looming debt crisis?
“Time for a buycott. “
How do we a hold of his list of advertisers?
That was a Tom Smothers joke, BTW. Complete with sound effects.
Yee needs egg rolls to go with that rice whine......
That’s Chinese for LOL.
“Hey, Yee! How did you name your kids? Did your silverware drawer spill?”
A Chinese couple had a new baby. The nurse brings them over a lovely, healthy, bouncy, black baby boy.
“Congratulations,” says the nurse to the new parents.
“What will you name the baby?”
The puzzled father looks at his new child and says:
“We will name him “Sam Ting Wong.”
“What do you call a drive by shooting where a Chinese guy gets shot?
There was this Spanish guy, this Chinese guy and this Russian guy all working for the same construction company.
At the beginning of the day the boss comes out and says to the Spanish guy, “You’re in charge of the cement.”
Then he said to the Russian guy, “You’re in charge of the dirt.”
Then he said to the Chinese guy, “You’re in charge of the supplies.”
Then he said, “I’m gonna be back at the end of the day to check on your work. It better be good or you’re fired.”
So they all go off to go get their work done.
At the end of the day, the boss comes back to check on their work.
He looks at the big pile of cement and goes, “Good work,” to the Spanish guy.
Then he looks at the big pile of dirt and says, “Good work,” to the Russian guy.
Then he couldn’t find the Korean guy so he asks, “Where the heck is the Chinese guy??”
All of a sudden, the Chinese guy jumps out from behind the big pile of dirt and yells, “ SUPPLIES!”
Given her constituency................good luck with that. lol
Thank you for the post, and the laffs. ;o)
>> Limbaugh “mocked the Chinese language and culture”
Righten up Francis.
Just received a new Chinese cookbook: 101 Ways to Wok Your Dog. Is that bad?
Like Lang Lang's piano tune at the White House state dinner honoring Chinese President Hu Jintao by playing "My Motherland," which is widely seen in China as anti-American.
Like that civility?
Oh, that is great and so true.
A Chinese friend told me that eating dog will make your temperature rise.
My guess is the so-called ‘death threats’ are either fake ones coming from Left- wing agitators, or complete fabrications, designed to garner sympathy, votes or campaign contributions. Probably all three. Yes, I am skeptical, especially when a Dem says they are threatened by a right winger. Listeners to Rush are not nutcases like The Left either believes or wants to believe. Conservatives are not like liberals. All the violence and vitriol comes from their side, not ours......
Yes, that has been proven time after time after time. It's just the left-wing 0media won't report it as such, if at all. There is a long list of left-wing violence somewhere in my archives. I'm sure many others here also have the list.
