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.

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.
